Boys Corn Club and School Fair.
x lt is up to Cartersville and Bartow county to show their apprecia
tion o' the worthy objects of the Boys’ Corn clubs and Bartow County
School i air by stepping forward with every manner of co-operation to
make the fair to be held here next month a success. We will not fail to
do this when we take time to consider how important it is that our boys
and girls be encouraged in the study of useful arts and that boys be given
ah impetus to continue the scientific culture of farm products and the
bettering of life conditions on the farm.
We may need to be reminded that the general purpose of the Boys' j
Corn clubs are to encourage the youth to engage in the study of soil and j
its conservation and adaptability to the growth of different plants and :
products, the scientific and systematic cultivation of corn, cotton and \
other products and the improvement of home and school life and the j
elevation of the dignity of agriculture in the economic and social af- |
fairs of life.
It starts with the endorsement of the United States government
which has given it the sanction of its aid and encouragement but the Sev
enth congressional district of Georgia is the first one in the United States
to organize itself and to enter upon the work of making real the hope
of all who want to see agriculture take its proper place and that boys
be taught high ideals and to learn while studying books systematic,
scientific and intensive farming.
To Honorable Gordon Lee, our representative in congress, is per
haps due the greater credit for the early development of this plan in
north Georgia because through his generosity in the donation of SI,OOO
for prizes and promotion expenses a campaign was started which has
resulted in the formation of clubs in every county in this district and a
consequent report of rapid progress. He has reason to feel proud of his
achievement in making his district first in this endeavor which will mean
so much to the wealtli of the district and the worth of its citizens.
Of equal importance to ns of this county is the school fair which
has for its purpose the demonstration of the theory that boys and girls
while in school can be taught at the same time some gainful occupa
tion or trade.
* The boys from all over the district will be here. We must entertain
Ihem:*nd lend encouragement to what may be and doubtless will be a
future in the acquirement of knowledge of the secrets of nature
jaiuFaffl in making the coming generation a hardy race and a familiy of
happy men. We must also show our faith in the boys and girls of our own
schools who will have their score and more of booths in which will be
displayed every form of genius as evidenced by diffcult makes of bas
kets, rugs, mats and woodwork; exhibitions of sewing, cooking and cann
ning and what may be done in the growth of cotton, corn, cerials, fruits
and vegetables. We must go to see the chickens and other poultry dis
plays, the hogs and cattle, the big things that can be done by the boys
end girls and that make for sustenance and wealth.
We may be taught to know that we have here a great county and a
congressional district filled with boys and girls of worth and genius.
While they are being taught it may be that we may likewise be educated
by being shown something we did no t know before, that here in Georgia
we can grow the biggest and finest specimens of the greatest number of
products and that we have coming on a citizenship which will enable
Georgia, especially north Georgia, to hold and maintain the highest place
along these lines.
Let all Bartow county and Cartersville unite in making this fair a
great and crowning event in our history. There is nothing more enob
ling than to encourage the development of productive wealth unless it is
the development of character and our schools and the Boys’ Corn clubs
have for their purpose the development of both.
