following page was sent to leaders of all the groups which had participated
in the
homemakers' 1941.42 program, asking them to assist in creating interest in
local
4.H Club work. As a result some new cluus were established.   Some of these
women also became leaders of their 4.- Clubs or acted on the advisory committee
for
them. Many rural and village teachers also assisted in much the same manner.

had new
leaders, district meetings were held with all leaders to disouss the Club
program.
