19. Ciltivate the community spirit, cooperation, team work,
      social life, and an appreciation of neighbors, so es-
      sential to the success of any commuinity.
 20. There is essentially no difference in the physical and
      mental needs of the boys and girls of the rural and
      city communities. Both should be given opportunity,
      through organization of their play and contest activi-
      ties, to do manly and womanly jobs.
 21. The most important, as well as the most successful
      method of putting club work before the public is
      through the agencies of public demonstrations.
 Z. Never make a promise in connection with the club
      work of any kind that you do not expect to redeem
      at its full value and at the proper time. Some broken
      promises have in the past discouraged many young
      people.
 23. The club leader who talks, works, and thinks club
      work, both in and out of season, is the one who suc-
      ceeds and becomes recognized as an authority in
      junior extension work.
 24. Make a program for the club year.
