     There were 28 4-H clubs in Bayfield County with an enroll-

craft, Small Furnishings, Home Grounds Beautification, Home
Service, Pig, JunLor Readership, potato, Poultry, Ducks, Sheep,
Turkeys, and Fish Conservation.
     It was noti ed that there was approximately a 30% increase
in the number of members who exhibited at the County Fair this
year and the quality of work showed progress also,
     4-H club members had the privilege of attending either the
Tri-County Camp at Lake Nebagamon or the Lake Galilee Camp near
Mellen, The twenty-five who attended from this county reported
an enjoyable as well as instructive experience.
     Ninety-five club members participated in the contests held
on Rally Day, and as a result, five members were awarded tripe
to the State Fair. There were Agricultural and Home Economics
demonstration contests, Agricultural judging contests, Home
Economics judging contests, Dress Revue and Dairy Queen contests.
The winners enjoyed a week at Milwaukee State Fair,
     Practically all the boys and girls of club age were given
an insight of 4-H club work as a result of a County-wide tour
of schools made by the Home Agent during last December and the
early winter months. Helps were given in the organization of
new clubs by the County Agricultural Agent and Home Agent.
