WHY IT PAYS TO CONTINUE IN 4-H WORK
Every boy wants to grow and develop into an efficient, re-
spected citizen who can support a family apd be a leader in his
community. He wants the satisfaction of knowing that he has
done his best, that he has taken full advantage of his oppor-
Once he has enrolled in a 4-H club, he has taken advantage
of one of the fine opportunities to help himself grow in knowl-
edge and usefulness, to become more efficient, to do his everyday
tasks a little better, to produce larger yields of crops and
raise better livestock, to lead in wholesome recreation and com-
munity activities, to belong to the largest and finest organization
of rural young people in the world. He has started down the
road which will help him learn how "to get things done."
But Rome was not built in a day, and no boy can become an
efficient man in one year or two years. He must develop over
all the years as he grows into manhood. Each day brings new
jobs to be done and new ways of doing them to be learned.
With each new year of his life a boy becomes not only one year
older but also one year larger and one year smarter. He can
do a bigger and a better job than he could the year before. It
is in the doing of those bigger jobs in a better way that a boy
grows up and becomes a man. The worth and ability of the
man will depend upon how hard the boy tried to do the bigger
job in a better way.
In 4-H club work as in life, the best rewards are saved for
those who have proven their worth and ability by years of try-
ing "to make the best better." Knowing that a job has been
well done is one of life's best rewards, but the many friends
of 4-H are offering educational trips and college scholarships
as extra awards for outstanding effort. If you wish to win
these trips and scholarships you must keep on trying.
Any boy who develops his Head, Heart, Hands and Health
in the 4-H way for several years will not fail in after years to
make a good living and to be a good citizen.
Don't be a "flash in the pan." Stay in 4-H club work and
continue to "learn by doing."
