     Through the request of a number of farm and village women
the Home Rconomics extension work that was started three years
ago was continued.
     This activity consists of a representative of the College of
Agriculture meeting with leaders from women's organizations at some
designated place at regular intervals. The leaders In turn present
the subject matter and the demonstrations that were given them to
members of their own organization.
     During the past year one of these meeting places was in
Harrison near Norske# the other in Iola. Miss Elizabeth Birong

this way rather than changing each year.
     The laupaca County exhibit which has featured Conservation and
Recreation for the last several years most likely will be changed
to some other project for next year.

     Activity has been maintained on this project in an effort to
secure the necessary funds to assist in the building of electric
lines in the area now requesting this service,
