    Because this office is aware of the need for advertising dairy
products more than has been the case in the past, a Dairy Bar
was sponsored by 4-H Clubs at the Fair. The bar offered for sale
pure, wholesome, cold milk; delicious chocolate milk; old fashioned
cold buttermilk; cheese sandwiches with butter; and ice cream.
The profits from this stand were small, but if the advertising value
was worth giving, then the efforts put into it were worthwhile.
    One of the high-spots of the County Fair was the selection and
crowning of the 1939 Dairy Queen.  Miss Marian Jagg, who has for
the past ten years been an active membor of the Worthwhile Club,
was selected Dairy Queen to represent St. Croix County at the State
contest. Amy Snoeyonbos, 1938 Dairy Queen, presented and crowned
Iiss Jagg on Wednesday afiernoon at the fair.   Miss Jagg was unable
to attend the state contest and Miss Maxine Brandt, second place
riinner, represented St. Croix County at the state fair.
