THE ANNUAL CORN SHOW The major project of the Future Farmers Boys this year was their annual corn show which was held on Thursday evening Novem- ber 5. A great deal of interest was manifested by the people of the community in this corn shew, A very liberal award of prizes were provided by the business and professional men of Adams. There were over 55 entries of field run corn. Entries were re- ceived from farmers in all directions, as far south as the Iowa line and east into the Taopi area. Since this was a contest of field run corn, the picking of the corn was supervised by Mr, Brooks and the agriculture boys. The boys were extremely busy during the fall picking: weighing, shelling, and testing the moisture content of the corn, The ag- riculture room was decorated most appropriately for a show of this kind and the corn was very attractively displayed. Although this was primarily a contest of field run corn, many other prizes were listed and entries received. Prizes were offered for the best ten ears of corn, for grains and seeds of all kinds, for sewing, baking and canned goods. The woman's de- partment was housed in the home economics rooms. Nineteen lots of entries in sewing, cooking and canning were provided for. A wnmanfg Committee consisting of Miss Ardys Christiansen, Mrs. J, C, Knutson, Mrs. Clara Torgerson, Mrs. William Wohlers, and Mrs, Roland Brooks arranged for this department., , The program was held in the auditorium.
