housed the show nicely, and was artistically decorated with flags and
bunting so that it presented a very attractive appearance. School day
was the feature of the show. The country schools adjourned and
teachers and pupils came in such numbers that seldom has our space
been so taxed to accommodate the spectators. The young folks made
good use of their notebooks and pencils, and It is doubtful if a single
grown-up saw and learned as much as did the average country school
visitor. It was a great event for the school children.
That the young folks are becoming a stronger factor and are receiv-
ing increasing recognition in the show game is evidenced by the fact
that a Junior Corn Contest was last year established as a part of the
International Hay and Grain Show. Two of Wisconsin's young ex-
hibitors took fourth and fifth places in Region 2.
Our competitive shows, from the local fairs to the state show, have
each become the stepping stone to larger opportunities and higher
honors, until even our largest international grain show is open to them
for conquest.
The junior exhibits at Green Bay were up to highest standard and
