                         1941 ANNUAL REPORT
     This narrative report is to be a resume of the activities
carried on by your County Agricultural Agent under the direction
of your County Agricultural Committee in cooperation with the
State and Federal extension service. On page 2 you have seen the
program of work of 1940-41 as outlined by the County Agricultural
Committee for your County Agent. This program of work has served
to direct my activities during the past twelve months. As you
will notice, certain goals have been set up; most of these goals
have been reached. At the time this program was written on October
17, 1940, indications were that all of the goals would be reached
during the year. However, conditions arose which made it virtually
impossible to obtain all of the goals set forth by the program of
                            4-H CLUB WORK
     393 St. Croix county farm boys and girls were enrolled in
our club program during 1941. The principal projects carried by
the club members included dairy calf work, clothing, food preserv-
ation, foods and nutritions, and garden project. Other projects
were participated in by smaller numbers.
                       National Club Congress
     As a reward for being the outstanding club member in St.
Croix county in 1940, Pearl Marty of the Worthwhile Club in the
town of St. Joseph, was awarded a free trip to Chicago in December
to the National 4-H Club Congress. This trip is one which is much
sought after by club members in all counties. This trip proved a
real experience for Pearl, and she has brought back to club work
some very fine experiences encountered on the trip.
                           State Club Camp
     The annual State 4-H Club Camp was held at the College of
Agriculture Campus at Madison. Six delegates, accompanied by
Miss Snoeyenbos, Summer Club leader, attended the conference from
St. Croix county. The delegates were: Margaret Brown, Betty
Schafer, Marion Sontag, Pearl Marty, Frances Jagg, and Janette
MoPhetres. This Camp is sponsored primarily for older club momb-
ers and Junior leaders, and we were glad to have the group attend
for St. Croix county so they might bring back to our clubs many of
the things they learned while at State Camp.
                             4-H PICNIC
     Our annual 4-H picnic was held at the Glen Park at River
Falls on July 10. This was a joint picnic with 4-H club members
from Pierce county. Over 700 club members, leaders, parents, and
friends from the two counties attended. A full program was arrang-
ed, including crops judging, training work on clothing, handicraft,
songs, stunts, and swimmIng.   The Dairy Quoen contest was conduct-
ed at this picnic, and Miss Ruth TeBoest of Baldwin was declared
the Dairy Queen for 1941. Her two attendants wore Miss Frances
