                      1i.-H CLUB WORK IN DANZ3 OOUWr
     bor many years 4-H club work has been one of the major projects on
the county agents program of work in Dane County. Club work offers an
opportunity for many farm boys and girls to get a practical education in
a type of farm and home work where they actually "learn by doing".
     There were 355 boys and 402 girls, or a total of 757, enrolled in
4-H club work in Dane County this year.  Of this number 81%, or 609, com-
pleted their projects and were awarded 14-H achievement pins at the Ach-
ievement Program held on Saturday evening, October 24. Of the 43 organ-
ized 4-H clubs, all members in 25 clubs completed their projects and the
club was awarded a 100% achievement certificate.

     Clara Wittwer, Mt. Horeb, member of the Perry 4-H Club, won the State
Dairy Calf Showmanship Contest in which about 200 contestants took part.
     21 dairy calves were shown and received the following placings: Seven
firsts, four seconds, eight thirds, and two fourths.
    As county agents we wish to credit a great share of the success of
4-H club work in Dane County to the fine spirit of cooperation of the local
club leaders, the agricultural and home economics teachers and also the
loyal cooperation of the parents of these boys and girls. (see rext pages
for list of 4-H club senior leaders)
