During ths first part of April the annual Short course for Canning Club girla was held at the Florida State College for Wom en, with an attendance of sixty club members. On Friday night, April 11, in the college auditorium, certificates were presented to all of the girls. Every one had successfully done the Work required at the short course. There were present in this group four , state prize winners: Pallio Mathis, of Holmes county, who won first prize in 1913; EulavTrantham, of jDuval county, state prize winner of 1916; Ethel Gibson, state prize winner for 1917. and Agnes Williams, state prize winner for 191r ; Many of the girls attending the short eourse reported that they were not only members of canning clubs, but some of them belonged to as many as four clubs. There are now being carried on throughout the State, can ning clubs, poultry clubs, pig clubs and grape clubs. Milk Clubs. I Another feature of the work In A pril has been the organization of the milk clubs, under the supervision of Miss May Morse, home demonstra tion dairy specialist. I Poultry Work. : The following are quotations from the home demonstration reports re garding the poultry work: f "Poultry club work Is as usual, pro grossing splendidly." "Every club member reported little chickens, and three of the boys have liev poultry houses." ' J "Eugene - Jackson has a Splendidly kept record book, and has made coop and fair houses out of the material 4i the place." "Ea.er Allen bought good stock for tier beginning, and is still hatching frggs to get money to build her houses." ; "I met the ladies of Johnston to Organize an egg circle. We organized a circle of seven members and shipped pne 30-dozen crate of eggs. Gave poul try club members lettuce seed to plant, so as to grow some green food for young chickens." ' ; ."Met the Garden and" poultry clubs. Enrolled eleven members, making a total of sixty-two. Twenty were poul try club members, two hundred and four chickens were hatched within the last two weeks, 193 laying hens and six setting hens." " - Sewing Clubs. , Reports from the Sewing Clubs show that the girls are busy making their spring garments, learning the use. of the sewing machine and other work that is useful in their home life. One agent reports one of her club girls as saying: "Since I have been taking the sewing, mother depends a great deal on me." It is believed that many oth ers are making the same report. Child Welfare. A number of agents report that their home demonstration programs in clude child welfare subjects. Canning. Canning meat still holds an impor tant place in the work. The follow ing quotations from the agents, give glimpses of this work: "Wednesday went to Pasadena and canned pork. We canned up over 3,000 pounds of meat. This was their first experience with the steam pressure canner in canning meats. Had 15 neighbors present." "Canned chicken. Rooster was too old for merely frying," and then fol lowed a description of how to make palatable an old rooster. Reports indicate that the . interest is increasing In canning vegetab'es. Through May and June, this work wi'l be carried on generally throughout the state. In some districts, more work in canning will be done than -.haa been done in the past. Many people in Florida have had four or five years experience in canning in tin now, and it is not unusual for an agent to re port that a family has ordered one thousand cans. A great many other kinds of work are being done, such as: Demonstrating the use Of poultry products and the . use of vegetables and fruits; planning community pic nics for the discussion of the v needs of the community; girls buying pure bred pigs, borrowing from the banks if they have not the money; selling eggs in co-operation with egg circles; working with bees; meeting business girls in some of the cities in the tve nings; giving community short courses; stating methods of improv ing the homes. (Note) The following quotation shows the method of doing this: "At a club meeting we talked of household conveniences. The women were especially Interested in the meth od of running water out of the kitch en, and I think most of them have fixed a system with the funnels and Pipe." Negro Home Demonstration Work. Fifteen negro women are working in fifteen counties in the state. The most important work they are doing is teach the people of their race how to make soap Of better quality and more easily than they have ever made it before; of the necessity of cleanli ness; of the whitewashing of fences and outhouses. Poultry raising, gar dening, etc., are, encouraged. One f OUSE QUITS THREE THIS i HALF DAY WAR TANK AND AIRPLANE STOP LAW MILL ONCE EACH AND OTHER RECESS WAS TO HEAR M'RAE. - BY JOHN C. TRICE. Tallahassee, May 10. It is perhaps the first time in the history of Flor ida that the house has recessed three times during one short session, but it is also the first time that such au occasion as that of this morning has. happened. One time a recess, was taken for five minutes to watch the maneuvers of a daring airplane navi gator flirting with death right over the capltol building. The next time the friends ' of the compulsory dip ping scheme succeeding In getting a motion through to ' listen to the agent of the bureau of animal industry, and the third time Mr. McBae had to sus pend his speech on the tick question for the members to watch a friendly tank bombarding the town with blank shells, in the interest of the Liberty Loan. . . ' Just as the last straggler of . the members of the house were, going up the steps on the east side of the capl tol building to be. present at roll call at the beginning of the Session, an airplane came buzzing over-the town from a northeastly direction.. He was flying at a height of two or three thousand feet, and only, attracted a passing notice.' Just about the time the roU call was under way. however, the buzzing of his engine indicated he had circled and was coming back down among the tree tops almost. There was a hurry ing to the windows. The roll call was completed and the chaplain pray ed, but it was perhaps the shortest prayer on record. Then the speaker declared a five minute recess. The evolutions of the bird man at such short range were exciting to the watchers. Salutations were given from the windows by the waving of hand kerchiefs, and were returned by him as he flirted with death just above the tops of the towering oak trees in the capitol yard. Several times he gratified the wishes of the lawmakers by skimming over the top of the capl tol building. ' . ' - The next excitement was when the compulsory dipping bill was resumed. The friends of the bill were evidently not satisfied with the outlook, and Mr. " Watson desired to invite Mr. Rawls, of the bureau ' of 4 animal : in dustry at Washington, to address the members. A recess had to be taken for this purpose for the reason that no one save the members of the house are permitted to speak during the ses sions. -:. ';' The third recess was taken when th tank which has been in these parts for several days came noisily by the capitol firing an occasional shot from one, Of its guns. Beside the driver of the tank was doing some maneuvering entirely new to most members of the house. : . : - the negro home demonstration agents reported the other day: , ; "I . have made soap in' a different neighborhood every day this week. Ws found 75 pounds of rancid lard. which we are turning into good soap. The country is full of little chickens, many of which have been raised because I asked it." ; .... ' ' . Because of the withdrawal . by the department of agriculture of the emer gency fund, it is feared there will have to be a material decrease in this work, in the state next year. It will take great enthusiasm and effort on the part of the local people to continue this work at the same high standard of efficiency and usefulness to the state.
