                                HEALTH REPORTS
     The health H is perhaps the most important H in the 4-H program. Better
eating habits and other health measures are stressed in the 4-H club health
report. Each club member was required to check a score card of their health
habits at the beginning of the year. During the year they were to improve
one
or two points in which they knew they were weak. At the end of the year each
member was to score themselves again, to see if they had improved. The com-
pleted health record was required of all achievement members.
                              SECOND MILE REPORTS
     "Whosoever shall compel thee to go one mile, go with him two."
The second
mile report consisted of all work performed in the home or on the farm which
contributed toward conservation and produo tion of food and materials, and
which
was work beyond the project which the member had contracted to complete.
Some
of the work which was included in second mile reports was work in the garden,
food preservation, milk production, egg and poultry production, crop production,
livestock production, Red Cross work, home tasks, collection of salvage and
milk
weed pod collection.
     One 18 year old urban youth said this in his report, "I worked
for a farmer
this summer who has a herd of 20 cows and 220 acres under cultivation. I
worked
on the land with the tractor working up all the land for the crops and assisting
some in cultivating. I also helped collect some scrap iron, rags and paper."
