a wonderful job of managing the
market in her mother's place.
Mrs. McCall was a former 4-H
Club member and a garden proj
ect winner during the second
World War. In fact, she won a
thousand dollar bond in the
Green Thumb Contest for Jun
iors during those years she was
a 4-H member. Now she is the
mother of two children During
her mother's illness, she pitched
in to harvest vegetables (or sale
on the curb market.

In her eight years as a club
member, Barbara has taken an
interest in and participated in the
contest four years. Sara M. Stew
art. assistant home demonstra
tion agent, says Barbara is well
known in the county for her de
licious cherry pies, so she's plan

a "run for their money" in the

all that Barbara can do. She's an
old-timer at planning and prepar
ing meals for her' family, and the
4-H food preparation project is
her favorite. This year she is
