Says Prominent Man The Long Branch Community Club in PicJens County staged another one of its successful meetings in August. This time the club was honored by having as its guest Dr. C. B. Smith, of Washington, D. C., Chief of the Office of Extension Work. Dr. Smith did not hesitate to compliment the bo5ii for the suc cessful work which they are doing. The regular monthly program was carried off in fine style, each mem ber contributing his full support in making it such. One by one the boys told the condition of the corn and pigs being grown under their m'lanacmcnt. It was unanimous that the ecr1 club corn in the community was better than other corn growl side by side. A strilking feature of this clib 1t1eei w \C:,:; the presence of fifteen of the chlb boyF' pruents six or eight of whom spoke very enthusia tially :n tavor to the goci wor!k being dn' by the club, saying that it was nXt. to the church and the school in the de "elopmtent of the comn munity.
