Excerpt from Boys' Livestock Judging Contest A rule of the contests provides that the boys must keep' these animals and show them the next year. In several places the boys came back to the fair this year with stock won in a previous contestand beat the breeder from whose herd their prizes had come. This proof of their good care and handling as well as of the value of their stock has pleased these boys so that they are immensely proud to be in the livestock business. The other prize animals which are now being cared for by their new owners make a big list and include representatives of the following breeds: Holstein, Shropshire, Duroc, Ayrshire, and'chesteir White, and some registered chickens. Many of these prizes were generously furnished by breeders of pure bred live stock who like to see the boys interested. Prizes not furnished in this way were usually provided by the fair board. In Lake and Madison Counties the prizes were secured thru the efforts of the Rural Y. M. C. A. Secretaries. In Montgomery County where one of the prizes was a gold medal the Rural Y. M. C. A. Secretary did' much to interest the boys. Here the County Agricultural Agent was also a leader in the contest. Everywhere the contest was conducted by the county fair board with the assistance of the College of Agriculture at Columbus. The fair boards furnished the stock to work on, the prizes, and the boys. The first two they could vote at any meeting of the board, but the boys had to have some notice of what was expected of them. Thus some good advertising or else a lot Of personal solicitation was needed. Nearly all of the board-s took up this part with enthusiasm and ih terested a good crowd of boys. In a few cases not enough effort was made to interest the Iboys. In Putnam County a vigorous campaign of advertising was carried! On and as a result one hundred and thirty six entered. A very satisfactory plan for letting the boys know what was wanted of them was that used in Preble County. There the fair board and county School superintendent got in touch with every teacher and the teachers in turn explained the contest to the boys. In Preble County the largest number of boys stayed with the contest till it was finished and judged every ring.

Damaris Phillips is a southern chef in love with an ethical vegetarian. In Phillips's household, greens were made with pork, and it wasn’t Sunday without fried chicken. So she had to transform the way she cooks. In Southern Girl Meets Vegetarian Boy, Phillips shares 100 recipes that embody the modern Southern kitchen: food that retains all its historic comfort and flavor, but can now be enjoyed by vegetarians and meat-lovers alike. The book features Phillips’s most cherished entrees from her childhood made both with and without meat: Chicken Fried Steak becomes Chicken Fried Seitan Steak. Loaded Potato and Bacon Soup is now Loaded Potato and Facon Soup. She gives down-home side dishes a makeover by removing meat, adding international spices, and updating cooking techniques, and offers soul-satisfying, irresistible desserts that triumph over the meat-eater-versus-vegetarian divide, every time. Phillips found a way to make Southern food that everyone can enjoy, wherever they are on their culinary journey.

Excerpt from Scoring Judging Contests Terms Defined The term Judging Contests, as accepted in this writ ing, means those occasions upon which a number of people express individual opinions as to the merits of a class of specimens with the idea that their opinions are to be compared with the decision of a recognized authority on that class of specimens. The people may be men or women or boys and girls assembled on occasions such as county and state fairs or state and national conventions of high school, college or lay groups. The specimens to be judged usually consist of classes of livestock, dairy cattle, poultry or crops products but the same procedure could be applied wherever there is opportunity for judgment as to the merits of specimens to' be compared. Specimens in the class should all be of the same kind so as to permit of logical comparison. For example, specimens of corn, potatoes, or apples should be of the same variety; animals should be of the same breed, sex, age and general condition. Specimens should be enough alike to make judgment difficult for contestants yet they should vary enough to preclude a difference of opinion by competent judges as to how they should rank. The most desirable group of specimens to constitute a judging problem is one which grades down perceptibly from the best to the poorest specimen.

Excerpt from Labor Saving in Live-Stock Production: Prepared in the Animal Husbandry Division If this feature of the labor problem is generally recognized by giving the women and children more than a laborer's interest in the animals, a most important influence will be brought to bear on the stability of the country population. A woman Or child on the farm who has a proprietary interest in some of the animals on the farm will be much less likely to become dissatisfied with farm life. It is possible that the germ of a most important development will be found in this feature of labor saving. Women from time immemorial have been interested in live stock production, but animal husbandry, as we know it, as a. Profession has been one of the last for women to take up. Now, however, young women from the best families are beginning to take the animal-husbandry courses in the agricultural colleges. They have won distinction in the stock-judging contest at the: International Live Stock Exposition, and one of these young women has already been appointed as scientific assistant in Animal Husbandry in the United States Bureau of Animal Industry. The third general consideration to be mentioned is the possibility of retired farmers who are skilled live-stock producers resuming in part their farming operations. Every country town has a large num ber of men who have made a success in farming, and many of these men have been among our best live stock breeders and feeders. Often they are in perfect health, with time to spare, and they have frequently left the farm in order to turn over its management to a son or other relative. The war is already bringing thousands of these men back into active service. They can not, of course, do so much Of the. Heavy work on the farms as their sons and grandsons, but they can materially relieve other labor supplies in the care of animals.

In again presenting this volume to the world, I trust I feel thankful to God for the favour with which the Infant System has been received, and for all the aid I have enjoyed in my course of labour. Had the measures I originated for the development of the infant mind, and the improvement of the moral character, been sanctioned at first, as many now think they should have been, their progress would, undoubtedly, have been far greater; but when I consider what has been accomplished under the divine benediction, and amid greater difficulties than ever beset the path of an individual similarly occupied, I know not how to express the gratitude of which I am conscious. It seems proper and even necessary to remark, that the system explained in this volume, is the result of many years of labour. Thousands of children have been attentively observed, and for the necessities that arose in their instruction, provision has been made.

The first time she saw him, she flipped. The first time he saw her, he ran. That was the second grade, but not much has changed by the seventh. She says: “My Bryce. Still walking around with my first kiss.” He says: “It’s been six years of strategic avoidance and social discomfort.” But in the eighth grade everything gets turned upside down. And just as he’s thinking there’s more to her than meets the eye, she’ s thinking that he’s not quite all he seemed. This is a classic romantic comedy of errors told in alternating chapters by two fresh, funny voices. Wendelin Van Draanen is at her best here with a knockout cast of quirky characters and a hilarious series of misunderstandings and missed opportunities. But underlying the humor are two teens in transition. They are each learning to look beyond the surface of people, both figuring out who they are, who they want to be, and who they want to be with.
