ity to contribute to Victory by join
ing a 4-H Club during "4-H Mobiliz
ation Week" April 5-12. There are
450.000 firm youths in the State be

members can contribute to the Vic

iron, steel, rubber, rags and paper.
From the money they receive for
this material, they can buy Defense
Stamps and Bonds.
"If you are not a 4-H Club mem

then contact your county farm or
home agent during the week of April
5-12 and enroll in a local club. Ev

will be allowed to select the project
