"A New Day- A New Way" The 4-H Week National 4-H Week, October 1-7, is an appropriate time for the Covington County Ex- tention Service, who supervises the 4-H program, to say "Thank You" and to call at- tention to school officials, tea- chers, principals, and parents who make this informal educa- tional program work for the benefit of all. President Richard Nixon ex- pressed his feelings on the sub- ject of local leaders by saying "I highly commend the thou- sands of adult volunteers and leaders for their dedicated role in this vital national program." Four-H is an action-oriented- practical learn-by-doing pro- gram that helps young people learn how to make a living, 1972 ALABAMA STATE FAIR TO OPEN The fragrant aroma of roses and many other flowers will welcome visitors to the Bir- mingham Fairgrounds ne:d week when the gates to the 1972 Alabama State Fair swing open.

In my opinion, this latest 21oy by the Communist North Vietnamese is just another bru- tal act in the continuing play using American POW's as props--all in violation of the Geneva Convention.

It is not hard to see that by releasing these three men to anti-war demonstrator types like David Dellinger (Chicago Seven), Cora Weiss (anti-war Activist) and William glean Cof- fin (militant draft evasion coun- ~lor~ and insisting that they military uniform, thus putting a considerable damper on the Communist propaganda fires fanned by Dellinger, Coffin, Weiss, and others. These three men chose of their own free will to rejoin society in the uniforms of our military ser- vices despite the repeated pres- sures placed on them by the anti-American activists. There have been some ques- tions about the servicemen get- ting leave. This will be taken care of. A bill which I intro- iuced to allow members of the Armed Forces who are POW's or MIA's to accumulate un- limited leave was recently passed by the House. I be- lieve a similar bill will soon by passed by the Senate and signed into law. e IF i Ib, Jt.rata f w L~K)H AVENt,~ l;ra s'mzZ nl-i~ll .pm~ ~,,,ml. ~t'Wtl SOU IR IIIII'TI~ ITIIIIT - IIL, OIIALA, ALAIAMA 1444| LUCILE ~cRA ..........

Four-H'ers not only come from Covington County and Ala- bama but from every state in the union, as well as from territories like Puerto Rico, Virgin Islands and Guam. They live on farms, in rural - non- rural homes, in suburban and in the countries largest cities. A growing number each year are from inter-city, low-income homes, where the need for Four-H type programs is great- est. Similar programs have been organized in eighty five coun- tries around the world. The theme of this year Na- tional Four-H Week is "A New Day - A New Way." The Four- H'er between the ages of nine and nineteen are certainly do- ing things in a new way. Times are changing and Four-H is changing to meet this demand. Through their clubs they are working for the betterment of their homes, their communities and their country. Four-H'ers in Covington County were en- rolled in thirty-eight different projects during the 1971-72 school year. The project is the tific methods and practices of agriculture, home economics and other important areas. Pro- ject work helps boys and girls develop good attitudes and per- sonalities. Also, project work aids in the development of good leadership and citizenship cha- racteristics. During the 1971-72 school year, Covington County had 1689 Four-H Club members or- ganized in sixty-two clubs. But Four-H is more than just the present members who are gain- ing knowledge while having the time of their lives. It is the volunteer adult, teen and Jr. leaders who work with them guiding their efforts and encouraging them to greater achievements. It is individuals, cor- porations, civic organizations, and foundations who give en- couragement through support at all levels from local communi- ties to programs of national and international importance. Their financial aid, techni- cal assistance, insentive, and recognitions, span half a cen- tury. . And it is the more than thir- ty million former Four-H'ers who have benefited from their Four-H experience and now pass on their knowledge and en- couragement to present mem- bers. Four-H needs more boys and girls and local leaders. And boys and girls and leaders need Four- H. Join a Four-H Club during National Four-H Club Week Oc- tober 1-7.
