However, we are glad and proud to say that such is not the case. Of course the most obvious contribution to the war effort has been the purchase of stamps. At the present rate of sales, approximately S900 worth of stamps will have been bought by children during this year. This is a notable achievement, but I wonder if it is the biggest and most important, We have done much in other fields too. . For instance, through the agriculture 6cH-rtmcnt. Mr. Smith conducts Rural War production Training classes which are not only for the boys, but for adults as wells He conducts these classes both, here in Adams and .also at Johnsburg. In the agriculture classes, the boys also practice, Food Production by doing farm practice work and Junior cow and sow testing. The F. F.A. boys had a paper collection, through, which they collected three thousand pounds of paper. The 4-H Club also has pledged to give its best efforts to each 4-H Victory project. It was the pupils of this school who campaigned the community for the scrap drive last fall. Many of them worked'hard and I'm sure it proved successful. Now let's see what the girls are doing. They oere talnly can't be sitting idle. We'1l travel up to the home economics department and visit Miss Christiansen, and find out. QF FF QF QF Q? QF F CPE- If S, 15. E: ' S. R X X.
