Now that's strange, H-4 and counting. Turn that around to 4-H and counting til Monday July 9 for the 1973 4-H camp trip. The biggest yet, 156 from Ohio County will attend the 4-H'ers number one resort area of West Kentucky. The West Kentucky 4-H camp near Dawson Springs. Ohio County made one of it's largest increase in 4-H camp attendance this year that ever has been made, coming up equal to Daviess County and their attendance, Ohio County potentially has surpassed Daviess County. Daviess County has a membership ofalittle over 1,000 as compared to Ohio County's 750. Potentially speaking, however, look at the population difference, potential number of boys and girls 9-19 and an assesed value of approximately 124 million dollars. Ohio County you should be proud of your accomplishments and it wasn't really that hard, was it? Ohio County could have the most outstanding 4-H program in the state of Kentucky. The only thing needed is the help from several more people in leadership roles to organize 4-H clubs and help the young people, support to children in 4-H from parents (support like one receives when playing on a ball team-this type of support could also help improve the formal educational program load in the county school system) and adaquate resources to finance educational program through 4-H. The 4- H program operates on a budget of approximately $1,000. What would it be if it has $13,000 or more to spend over several years. Helping supervise all the boys and girls attending 4-H camp this year will be one of the most outstanding group of Jr. and adult leaders ever to attend 4-H camp. Their job will be to make the camp as enjoyable as possible for the boys and girls during the week of July 9-13 and to insure that the boys and girls have everything possible to make it an education experience as well as fun. Attending camp as Jr. and Adult leaders will be: Jr. Leaders Kelley Howell, Jackie Chambers, Timmy Patton, Polly McGrew, Kent Snodgrass, Benita Snodgrass, Jeff Richards, Steve Dever, and Debbie Payton. Adult leaders in addition to county ex- tension agents Ellen Hester and John Fourqurean will be Harold Tichenor, Mrs. Carl Wilson, Mrs. Randall Sheffield, Mrs. Cecil Mosley and Mrs. Lucy Midkiff. During the past few years, Ohio County has progressed from a one bus county, to a two bus county to now a three bus county to tran- sport the campers to 4-H camp.

ROCK AROUND THE CLOCK Beaver Dam Centenial 4-H clubs, why not rock yourself or sponsor a good rocker in the "rocking chair marathon" at the Beaver Dam Centenial. I would suggest to get someone who has experience in staying awake for long hours. Possibly someone who is 16, 17, 18, or 19 or one of your mothers or dads. They'll need your moral support when they are rocking also. After all, what 4-H club couldn't use $500.00 The entire club could go to 4-H camp or take a big, big trip on that such money.

However you may want to use your discression on to whether to call or visit depending on the child. Usually a good attitude has a lot to do with how good a time a camper has at camp. If they leave home with "have a good time, work hard and play hard" and "we'll hang your certificate on the wall and sew your patches on your coat." Rather than "call me if you get homesick."

"Field day visitors can evaluate crops at different stages of growth this year compared to most other years." Information on much of the research being con- ducted at the 1200-acre Princeton farm will be presented to field day visitors in displays, demonstrations and tours. Visitors can check into any or all of the research which they are interested in. Forages will get a lot of attention at the field day. Variety plots of red clover, alfalfa and grasses will be shown.

Several types of stacks and round bales and the machines which made them will be shown at the field day. Information on efficient feeding of filed- stored hay will be also be presented.
