We are pi ad to note the many CLUB WORK KEEPS BOYS ON FARM County Agents Rendering ... Service In Training . Junior Farmers Great For several years the farmers la al most every section have compralned bitterly, about the boys leaving the 'farms -and seeking work In the cities. Hut it was not .until the IIvislon of Agricultural Extension became active in club work, organizing boys' and girls corn clubs, pig clubs, calf clubs, nnd lamb clubs that anything definite was done to stop this cityward trend of the country boys. The work of the county agent cov ers a broad scope, ell of his work is valuable, there is not better invest ment than a County Agent, but of all the work that has been performed by the County Agents in the Southeast the organization of boys' and girls' club Is outstanding. Through the me dium of boys' and girls' clubs, thoso little men and women are taught the fundamentals of agriculture and stock raising, and it is indeed amazing to note how soon they become interest ed ami how they ouch try to excell the others in their efforts. Another interesting- fact, frequently the. father has followed certain given lines In farming or -feeding for years!, nnd would not listen to any argument uloug progressive lines, yet will per mit his or daughter to join a club, rnise an acre of corn or feed a p!g or calf, and ihe father then unconscious ly absorbs valuable lessons through his child being taught along modern methods. Fanning, which embraces stock raising and feeding, is becoming more and more a business every day, and the farmer needs all the Information he can get. The Extension Service of the University of Tennessee and those of other state universities in co-operation with the United States Depart ment of Agriculture and the State De partments are doing a great deal of research work nod conducting experi ments all tie time. Through the boys' and girls' club work, the youngsters can receive full benefit of all research Work and cxiverimcnts pertaining to agriculture and livestock applicable to their respective sections of the. coun try, boys' end g-irls' club work means the best possible education at the low est possible cost. Value of Work Shown. Never before since club work in ag riculture and home economies for boys and girls was started has the value of such been demonstrated in Tennessee as it. has during the past season. At community, county and division fairs their work wa3 In evidence. Pigs, calves, poultry, field crops, cooking, canning, etc., exhibits fitted, prepared and shown by these future farmers and homemekers of the great state were ' wonderful. No one who saw these splendid exhibits could help but be impressed with far reaching value of the work from an educational standpoint as well as a remunerative one. They won many valuable prizes and iri some cases where they enter ed their products in competition with experienced fanners and farm women they" were by reason of their expert training able to take the choicest prizes.

Powers, after an! , . , absence of two weeks visiting her daughters at Jackson, has returned home.-- i DEMAND FOR SAFE ROADWAYS Seme Kind- of Protection Should Be Provided to Keep . Cars From Skidding Off Dirt Roads. What value do we place on a human life? To judge by some of the roads over the country it is not much. Lives are lost, many times where a few dol lars or a little extra time would make a road safe enough so that taking a ride along (hem on a ifl my day in an auto would not be such a halr-ralslug experieffce as is often the case now, says a writer in Successful Farmer. Recently a friend of mine was driv ing along a road within a half mile of a small town and ran into a ditch six feet deep, upsetting his car and smash ing things up generally, though he es caped unhurt, and had no one with him. Many complaints had been made about that road, but nothing was done by anyone. On either side' the ditch came within less than two feet of the roadway, and there was not even a ridge or anything to ward the wheels off ami keep them from sliding over. When hundreds of nutoinoblles are owned In every part of the country and It is Impossible to always keep off roads wheu they are slippery, It is not morally right and should not be legally right to leave them In a condi tion that would make an accident un der ordinary conditions possible. Dur ing the last two years I have been riding around considerably and we have been In places where it was very dangerous driving, and often came up on such places with no chauce at all to avoid them. In one case we crossed a bridge after a Hjrht shower, and on the far -l.Te found thfat It had rnvsd away to within six incites of the road, though that was solid. For a rod the ditch was not two feet from the road, with nothing to check a slide into it. A very steep hill began just beyond the bridge. Our car could not make the hill, and we stalled, ami had to back some. The least bit of skidding would have been certain to have car- Proparly Protected Road. ried us over the bank and for several minutes it looked like we were to go down six or eight feet Into a creek. It- is not always that such places are on unimportant roads. In fact the first place mentioned was on a main traveled road between county seats, .and automobiles Used it on long dis tance travel. In the main It was ft fine road well kept, but there were two or three places that were really danger ous, though this was the worst of all. Wherever there is a place at the side of a dirt road that has much travel, that is deep enough to upset a car that went down into it, some kind of protection should be made to keep cars' from skidding off. We are hot consid ering the quick dash to one side from careless driving or going too fast in mud, but the unavoidable skid that is bound to occur now and then. Our roads should be safe In muddy weather as far as we can make them for often at such times we have to use them with our cars.
