Money Sought So Negro 4-H Boys Can Compete in Cleveland, Ohio, 1939

“Seeking to Send Negro 4-H Boys to Enter Judging” from the Tuesday, July 25, 1939, issue of the Burlington Daily Times-News

Plans are now under way in the county for the raising of necessary funds to send two negro 4-H club boys to the international poultry congress in Cleveland, Ohio, on August 2, where they will compete in demonstration contests with other such teams from other states.

Alamance, Craven, and Hertford counties are the only areas in North Carolina which will be so represented at the meeting. This county was selected by R.E. Jones, negro 4-H club specialist.

The two youths of this county, who as yet have not been named, will present a consumption demonstration entitled “An Egg Drink for Lunch.” The demonstration was prepared by B.A. Hall, acting county agent.

During Hall’s absence due to summer school attendance at Hampton Institute, J.W. Jeffries, negro county agent, who is now on leave of absence, is assisting the boys in the perfection of their demonstration. 

Hall, who has been in summer school for about three weeks, is slated to return this week.
