FUTURE FARMERS OF AMERICA
HE COLLEGIATE FUTURE FARMER CHAPTER is an organization for men who
are majoring in agriculture education. It is the largest organization in the college. Its
aims are to prepare prospective teachers of vocational agriculture for duties of acting as
advisers to high school chapters and aiding high school chapters in their work. The col-
legiate chapter was organized in 1936, and since that time has held to its aims and has
changed only to broaden its scope of activity and to increase its membership.
The chapter is chartered by the State Association of the Future Farmers of America
and is under its authority. The meetings are conducted according to the Future Farmer
ritual. The constitution, which was drawn up by the charter members, states the rights
and privileges of the organization. It also includes a system of degrees designated to
stimulate the interest of the members and to allow for the advancement to a higher rank
of those members meeting the qualifications of the higher degrees.
The program of work for this year was very large and called for much activity on
the part of the chapter. Included in this program were such activities as the stock judging
contest held in October to aid in the preparation of contestants for the state high school
contest held in Madison. The rural school fair held in October offered a chance for rural
schools from this vicinity to compete for honors in the erection of a booth and for indi-
vidual students to compete for cash prizes with individual exhibits of farm produce.
The high school oflicers training day held in November was sponsored by the collegiate
chapter to aid officers of high school Future Farmer chapters in solving the problems
they meet and in better serving their local chapters.
The speech contest held last spring offered a chance for members to improve their
speaking ability while competing for cash prizes. Degree teams, as in the past, were
organized and made trips to high school chapters in the surrounding territory. Their
work consisted of initiating green hands and raising green hands to the grade of future
farmer. A new feature of this year's activity was the high school field day. The members
of the collegiate chapter offered a program of interest to high school agriculture students
and their instructors. All indications pointed to a desire among those present to continue
this activity. Plans are being made to do so.
Other activities included in the program of work were the annual banquet, the spring
picnic, and the all-school dance.

THE RURAL LIFE CLUB
EVERY student in the rural department is a member of the Rural Life Club. Member-
ship is not compulsory to all students in this department, but everyone feels that
he will enrich his experiences by being a member. The purpose of this organization is to
provide a means of bringing the rural students together so that they may become better
acquainted and at the same time enjoy the educational and entertaining program which
is the major attraction of each meeting.
Regular meetings were held the third Tuesday of every month, until it was decided
at the March meeting to meet twice a month, the first Tuesday as well as the third.
Much of the success of the club depends upon the chairman of the program com-
mittee. Camilla Parent had charge of the programs for the first half of the year and
Marion Estenson took over the responsibility for the remainder of the year.
Our December meeting was a Christmas party at which games, presents from the
tree, and refreshments were featured. Miss Haddow and Mr. O'Bierne gave very interest-
ing talks at two of our other meetings. In April the first ten sophomores to secure teach-
ing positions for next year gave a recreational program at which games were played and
refreshments were furnished.
The Rural Life Club feels the effect of the practice teaching in the rural communities,
a six-weeks period in which twelve or sixteen members of the rural department are living
in the rural community. Because of the large number enrolled in the sophomore class this
year, it was necessary to begin the practice work during the second half of the first term.
While the students are doing their practice work, many of them live in the country and
enjoy the country life just as they will when they are actually teaching. The schools in
which students practiced this year were: The Gertrude School, Miss Clarice Anderson,
teacher, the Lincoln School, Miss Vivian Afdahl, teacherg the Valley View School, Mrs.
Archie Afdahl, teacher, and the South Rush River School, Miss Marion Bergseng, teacher.
As a climax to the year's activities, the Rural Life Club sent delegates to the Country
Life Convention at the Central Teachers College at Stevens Point on May 3 and 4.
