Sara Jordan explained the purpose
of Achievement Day «nd told the
audience that its purpose /is three |
fold. First, to honor those club mem
bers who have satisfactorily complet-1
ed one or more projects this year,
second, to acquaint the general public
with the 4*H Clubs and what they
are doing, and -third, to give proper
credit to the parents of the club mem
bers for their cooperation in helping!
and encouraging club work.
Special music was given by Audrey
Bunch, Mary Bunchy Christine Har
rell/ Frances Bunch and Elwood Cope
land. Charles Lee Overman told of
the year’s work of the 4-H Clubs,
and Herbert Raye Lane gave his
“Impressions of the Better Methods
Congress”. McKay Phthisic introduc
ed the speaker of the day, John A.
Holmes, superintendent of the Eden
ton public schools.
In his address, Mr. Holmes told
of the many advantages of a boy or
girl belonging to the 4-H Club, and -
said that 4-H Club work is one of the,
best ways of improving American |
agriculture. He congratulated those!
members who had the grit and de-1
termination to start a project and
follow it through to a successful
completion. Mr. Holmes stated that
> the future hope of the world lies in
its young people, adding that the
two previous generations did not con
duct the world affairs in a proper
manner, and their failure caused two
World Wars, only 21 years apart.
“We have the manpower, the mach
inery, the natural resources and the
technical ability to produce plenty of
the necessary things for all people
everywhere, if we will only do it,” he
said. “Just as man learned to con
trol fire so that it did not destroy
him, so must modern man learn to
[ control atomic power so that it will
not destroy mankind. It is up to
you, the younger generation, to see
! that we conduct our lofcal, state, na
tional and international affairs so
| that we will live in a world of peace
and prosperity instead of a con
dition of chaos,” he added. _v- -
