THE BANK SC LAUREN
ONE HUNDRED BOYS
AT SINGLE BANQUET
Such will be the Sight to Greet the
?>et> vi One V/ho Happens to Look
in at the Big Banquet During the
Corn Exposition at Columbia.
Columbia, April 15.?One thousand
boys in school together Is not a rare
sight but a gathering of one thousand
school boys around a banquet bourd is
unique. Aud when it is said that these
one thousand boys are Corn Club
boys, from all the corn growing states
what a sight it will be! ,
This is the plan of the National
Corn Exposition management, to have
a great Exposition School for prize
winners In the county contests of the
Boys' Corn Clubs, as conducted
throughout the Southern States by the
Federal Farm Demonstration bureau,
and the city council of Columbia,
where the Corn Exposition is to be
held next January, has announced that
the city will give a banquet to the one
thousand or more boys attending the
The school will consist of the two
boys in each county winning first and
second place in the Boys' Corn Club
contests. The school will open on
Monday, January 27th, 1913, the open
ing day of the exposition, and will
continue one week. The faculty will
consist of agricultural experts from
all parts of the country who will be
in attendance on the exposition, which
is much more than a mere corn show.
It is a great national agricultural ex
position, not being confined to corn
alone, and tho opportunity which It
affords for agricultural education is
The boys attending the Exposition
School will be quurtcrcd in a large
building, near the main exposition
buildings, and they will be in charge
of representatives of the farm dem
onstration work. The boys will be
organized into a semi-military organ
ization, and while the men of the
demonstration department will have
close supervision over them, it is
planned that the boys themselves will
be given certain responsibilities. They
will visit the exhibits in the mornings
and in the afternoons will have pa
rades, and will be given special in
struction in corn judging, stock Judg
ing and the like. The boys will be
asked to prepare reports of what they
see and the best of these reports will
be sent to the home papers for pub
Then on Saturday night, tho last
night, comes the banquet, given by the
City of Columbia in honor of the
Corn Club boys. There will be speech
es by some of the most notable men
in the country, and in fact it will be
a genuine banquet, just like grown
up folks have.
Prof. O. B. Martin. Assistant in
charge of the Boys' Department of the
Farm Demonstration Work, will be
in charge of all preliminary arrange
ments for the Exposition School, and
bo has entered upon the work with
characteristic enthusiasm and energy.
