ASHDOWN, ARKANSAS. L - “ j Boys and Girls Club Work Eight Studies in Education Through Club Activities. I. Educational Value of Club Study. Education has been defined as “that ; training which fits for the duties of1 life.” If this is a true definition of education, and we certainly believe it. ! In. and if it can be shown that the j club work in any way fits the boys i and girls for their duties in life, then 1 it must be conceded that there is an educational value in the club work. Corn Club boys are instructed per sonally and through bulletins and let ters in the matter of 11) Selecting their acre ior nemonstration. (2) the value and importance of sowing a win ter cover crop on this acre, (3) the proper methods and value of prepar ing seed beds, (4) the selection, stor ing and testing of seed corn, (a) the proper methods of planting and culti vation, f6) the keeping of daily ex pense account of all work pfrformed on his acre, (7i the submitting of this record at the end of the year, (8) and finally is asked to make an exhibit of his products at the fairs. In the study and practice of the above instructions the bov is the prin cipal actor, and 'its .-cage of action is his acre of corn. His acre of corn may be likened to his laboratory and the daily praetire of application of the principles taught him, are the experi ments or tests that he makes, and the fact that during the last two years the Corn Club boys have made an average yield of over forty bushels per acre as compared with an average of less than twenty for the whole stato is proof positive that the principles taught were not only safe and sound, but that they found daily application1 through the boy on his acre of com j laboratory. In the performance of all i these activities or duties tin boy is I caused to think, plan and reason from year to year as he mak«* different tests on different soils or in difTereiU laboratories. All of this will give a training which will fit him for his du ties in life because he has learned “to do by doing." He hag used mother earth as his laboratory, has learned her principles, and baa applied them What has been said of the Corn Club boy is also true of the Pig Club boy. In fact, the Pig Club member is usually a Corn Club member too. The Pig Club boy has for his laboratory the pig, and the tests that he makes are his daily care and the feeding of his pig. He learns, as one pig olul) member said in reply to a question as to what he had learned that would help him next year, “that clear water to drink, good pasture the year round, plenty of shade and a littie corn makes good cheap hogs, and further that these things ase mighty good to keep off cholera." He learns what a balanced ration Is and the value there of. He plans his crop to meet these needs. Doubtless he wonders if his body too does not call for a balanced food. Dealing with animals usually makes one kind and sympathetic. His efficiency as a producer of wealth is increased as a result of the applica tion of the proper methods of feeding and caring for his pig. He, too, has learned “to do by doing.” The Canning and Poultry Clubs of fer at once a profitable and pleasura ble livelihood for girls. The Canning Club girl has for her laboratory her one-tenth acre. She is taught how to plan this garden, how to prepare the Hot beds, the birth place of the little plants, how to feed and care for the little plants until they are old enough to put into the field, how to cultivate the plants on up to maturity, how to fight the common diseases and in sects, and finally how to can and pre serve the products of her garden, in all of this work from the beginning of the sowing of the seed up to har vesting and canning of the products the girl has been the chief operator; her hands have been busy day after day hoeing, pruning, harvesting and canning. This work is done in the open; she therefore develops a sound body; she enjoys her work because It is hers; her hands have done t.he work; her interest is in her garden, and her aim is to produce a product of high quality and thu3 maintain the four H brand standard.

The price of our cotton goes to the moon; The farmers all laugh and the bankers just grin At the big deposits that's cornin’ soon. Gen. Bill, discussing the European war with the Board of Strategy, said: "I don't understand how the Alleys can bombard the Dardanelle with out hitting Russelville. Of course, that pontoon bridge will keep infant reg iment back, but the cavalry can swim right over. I am in favor of referring the whole thing to the Peace Hague, in fact, I hope to see the day when every country will have a Peace Hague of its own.” A Little Rock citizen was in a state of inebriation the other evening and a friend was endeavoring to pilot him home. As they were passing along the street, he said to his friend: “I live at No.624, you know, and when that number comes along just stop it please, till I can get in." \V> en little Bettie, aged 6, was go ing i.ut to the Mountains to spend the summer, and was told there was no Christian church Sunday school there, she asked: ‘‘Mamina, do you think it would really be a sin for me to go to a Baptist Sunday school?" They tell a story on the late Col. (lamp Snead, In his day the neBtor of the Camden bar. A friend had Just been appointed Chancellor of the Dis trict, and everybody was addressing aim as Chancellor; Col Smead stood it long as he could, and Anally said in disgust: “Oh shucks, he ain’t no shore 'nuff Chancellor; Jeff jest appointed him." “Now Johnny, I don’t want to catch you In that jelly again", said the moth er sternly, after she had Aniahed a painful seanance with the young hope ful. “No. ma'am, and I don't want you to either.” he agreed, between sobs “John D. Rockefeller’s middle name must be Vice," remarked Brown, as he finished reading an account of the receptions given him by the Colorado miners; “you know that a gag at the poet's about Vice being a monster of so frightened a mien that all we need to hate him is to see him, but seeu too oft. familiar with his face. A rat we pity, then endure, then embrace.” The Little Rock librarian reports that “Action readers are fewer." Hut this does not necessarily mean that there are fewer people reading the official war reports from Bertln. Paris, j London and Petrograd.
