18 Sept., 1936 4-H Show Here Great Success As County Show
The most successful 4-H Club county show to be held in Logan County
came to a close yesterday afternoon when the young exhibitors were
given a release on their exhibits, permitting them to return home
after a pleasant three days, here. The heavy entry list and the keen
competition was so much greater than in years that the future of
this youthful and growing organization is one of the bright spots in
the farming life of the county.
Farm advisor, N. H. Anderson, who has been on the job every day as
well as many previous, getting ready for the show was especially
enthusiastic over the class of animals the 4-H Club members
displayed, ranking as he stated above any he has seen this year and
claiming it to be the best in the state.
