their advisors should meet on stage
for pictures. Jackets, coats and ties
should be worn. The officers will then

The newly-elected officers will be
photographed individually and
measured for jackets.
Old and new officers will be

FFA officers and advisers should
send in their application now if they
plan to participate in the Wash-
ington Summer Conference program.
You have until June 1, but appli-
cations are accepted in order of
receipt so get your application in
early to get the time you want.
The function of the Washington
Conferences is to further develop
leader confidence and skills. Officers
will gain a first hand appreciation of
our nation's great heritage through
special visits and programs at
historical sites and memorials in the
Nation's Capitol. Emphasis will also
be placed on obtaining new ideas for
chapter action. Participants will visit

Plaza until around 4:30 p.m.
Advisors of the new officers are
welcome to attend the officers
The President should not plan to
attend college next year. Should the
Secretary and Vice Presidents
attend, they should take a light
(minimum hour) load.
A luncheon will be held on
Monday, June 10, for all officer
candidates at the Daytona Plaza.
Several former state officers will meet
with you and discuss the activities for
the coming week. They will probably
have some hints and suggestions
which will be helpful to you and your
campaign. Please let me know if you
plan to attend.
In planning your campaign for
state office, please consider the
following items:
1. Reason should be used in the
amount of money spent for your
campaign. Too much money used is a
waste and may work against you in
the campaign.
2. Your personal contact with the
delegates is your best campaign.
They want to know you as an
individual and need an opportunity
to study your qualifications. Remem-
ber a firm handshake, a friendly
smile, and looking the individual in
the eyes are most important assets for

Ted Edwards Enjoys Opportunity to
Travel 55,000 Miles as President

Conventions, Leadership Confer-
ences, Banquets, the Goodwill Tour,
Forestry Camp,
Chapter visits,
and judging con-
tests are all ac-
tivities and __
events that your
state officers
have partici-
pated in this
year. As State
President, I have
had an oppor-
tunity to travel Ted Edwards
over 55,000 miles
around the state of Florida and the
United States representing our Flor-
ida association, FFA. I would like to
share with you my year as State
President thus far.
In July there was the Annual
Forestry Camps at Camp O'Leno
near High Springs. The camp lasted
for two weeks and provided FFA
members with a back- ground in for-
estry as well as a chance to enjoy the
Each year the National FFA Or-
ganization holds a State Presidents
Conference in Washington, D. C.
Frank Attkisson and I attended the
Conference, hosted by the National
Officers, the last week of July and
learned more about FFA and our re-
sponsibilities as state officers. While
in Washington we visited numerous
historical sites including the Arling-
ton Cemetery, Lincoln Memorial.
Washington Memorial, Jefferson
Memorial, George Washington's
Home, ard the White House. We also
visited the National FFA Center in
Alexandria, Virginia; sat in on the
Watergate Committee Hearing; and
met such dignitaries as Julie Nixon
Eisenhower, Secretary of Agriculture
Earl Butz, and many congressmen
and senators.
After holding an executive Com-
mittee Meeting the first of August,
your state officer team traveled to
Covington, Georgia for the Southern
Regional Leadership Conference.
During the conference we became
even more familiar with the FFA,
participated in discussion groups
with officers from other states in the
southern region, practiced banquet
speeches, and even learned how to
pack a suit
After returning from the Leader-
ship Conference, I attended the Vo-
cational Educators Conference in

Miami where I recited the FFA creed
before the entire assembly with the
other youth club presidents.
Also in August we had the State
Leadership School which is hosted by
the state officers for all of the district
and subdistrict officers. The school is
for two days in Gainesville, and this
year had a record attendance. The
purpose of the school is to further fa-

miliarize the officers with the FFA
and to prepare them for their jobs as
One of the most important activi-
ties of your state officers this year was
the Goodwil Tour. The Goodwill
Tour is a trip through the state in
which the state officers publicize the
FFA and visit with friends and sup-
porters of our organization. It started
in Jacksonville and took us through
Palatka, Sanford, Orlando, Apopka,
Ft. Pierce and a week and a half later

Vice President Graham Describes
'Fantastic Year' in Area III Report

Hello, fellow members! I sincerely
hope that each and every one of you
are having a
great year. It has .
really been a fan-
tastic year for me
so far as a mem-
ber of our state
officer team. I
want you to
know that it's
been an honor
for me to repre-
sent you. That is
why I am happy Graham
to have the op-
portunity, at this time, to share with
you some of the many activities and
highlights of my year this far as a
state officer. The first two or three
weeks after the state convention, we
didn't do too much except buy new
cars, write letters, ditties, and
speeches, and of course check our
mail boxes every day to see if our
"Association Jackets" had arrived.
In July Jimmy, Billy, and I at-
tended the first week of Forestry
Camp at Camp O'Leno and the next
week the three of us again were at
camp along with Ted. This was our
first opportunity as state officers to
meet and visit with FFA members
and we really did enjoy it. The very
next week, while Ted and Frank were
in Washington, Jimmy and I repre-
sented the FFA at the state 4-H Con-
gress in Gainesville. We learned alot
about the 4-H organization, met
many members and just had a great
time. (Oh yes! Believe it or not ...
"The Preacherman," Jimmy
Edwards, actually danced for the
first time!)
August was really a busy month.
The first week in August we attended
the Southern Leadership Conference
in Covington, Georgia. The officers
from five states were in attend- ance
along with members of the National

Staff and National Officers. At this
conference we learned more about
the FFA and being a state officer by
sharing our abilities and ideas with
each other and by putting into prac-
tice what we learned from the offic-
ials who were running the confer-
Two weeks later (August 12-15), I
had the honor of serving as youth
counselor for the boys at the Florida
Farm Bureau State Safety Seminar.
The seminar was held at Camp
Montgomery in Keystone Heights
and there were many FFA members
among the young people who partici-
pated in this valuable and worth-
while school. When I left the
seminar, I met the other officers in
Gainesville, where we planned and
held the State Leadership School for
District and Sub-District officers.
The day after the Leadership School
we traveled to Jacksonville, where we
began our two week long state officer
Goodwill our. During these two
weeks we found out and learned
many things. We found out what it
was really like to be a state officer. We
learned that being an officer required
much more dedication and work
than what many of us had realized,
we learned how to work as a team,
and we found out that we were a
team. And it was on this long trip,
that we became to know each other
as a family of brothers. We also
learned that throughout this state
there are so many people who have a
great amount of respect for the FFA
and many of whom help support our
organization because of their confi-
dence in our programs and the results
that are shown within our members.
In September, after the Goodwill
Tour, we had the responsibility of
beginning to work more on our own
rather than as a group. Nearly every
school in the state was in session by

Billy Williams Says Having State Office
Is a Dream in Report from Area II

It was almost like a dream, me, Billy
Williams becoming a State FFA Offi-
cer last year at
our state conven-
tion. At that
time I didn't
really know
what the office I
had been elected
to was all about
and I didn't real-
ize many of the
duties that
would be expect-
ed of me. I knew Williams
one thing how-
ever, that I wanted to be a state offi-
cer based mainly upon the appear-
ance, performance, and general atti-
tude of past state officers and I deci-
ded to accept whatever duties came
with the office if I could only be lucky
enough to be elected. I thank you,
the FFA members throughout the
state of Florida, for giving me the op-
portunity to serve you this past year
and I hope that I have in no way let
any of you down.
After the state convention I came
home and thought about what I
would have to do in the coming year.
On July 13, I had my first opportun-
ity to meet some of the FFA members
from the southern part of the state at
Forestry Camp held at Camp
O'Leno. I was also able to attend
camp O'Leno on July 20 as the FFA
members gathered from the northern
part of the state. The last day in July,
we as a state officer team met for the
first time in Lake City since being
elected. Here we planned for the Reg-
ional Leadership Conference which
would be held August 1-3 in Coving-
ton, Georgia. About a week later we
met in Gainesville to plan for the
State Leadership school. On August
20th our Goodwill Tour started.
On this tour we met with many
different business and clubs. We told
these people what kind of organi-
zation we were, what we were doing
and in the end tried to leave a better
relation with the FFA and the gene-
ral public. The tour started in Jack-
sonville where we visited with Florida
Tractor Corporation, Florida
Machine and Foundry and Channel
12 TV station. From Jacksonville we
went to Palatka where we visited
with Florida Power and Light
Company, Chamber of Commerce,
Hudson Pulp and Paper co., Lions
Club, Simmons Dairy and Kiwanis
Club. Our next stop was in Sanford

where we visited the Stauffer Chemi-
cal Company and Chase Company.
We then visited Orlando where we
had the opportunity to be the guest of
Walt Disney World and also we visit-
ed the Sun Bank of Orlando. We
then traveled to Ft. Pierce where we
visited with Bud Adams cattle ranch,
Berggren Equipment co. and were
the guest of the Rotary Club. Our
tour ended up in Okeechobee where
we visited with Daniels Ranch,
McArthur Dairies and again visited
with the Lions and Rotary Club of
Okeechobee. The Goodwill Tour was
a tremendous learning experience for
me, it was something that I will never
In the month of September the
area Leadership schools began and
on September 15 I attended Area I,
District 1 Leadership School, and on
September 22, Area I District 2 Lead-
ership School and on September 29,
Area 4 District 7 Leadership School,
and ended with Area II Leadership
School on October 6.
On October 13 I had the oppor-
tunity to travel to Cincinnati to re-
present Florida as the State FFA-
SCL Forestry Winner. There I was
joined by five other forestry winners
from different states. While in
Cincinnati we spoke at a business-
men's club and told them about our
forestry Program. We also presented
different men in that area with a
ham in hopes we could further gain
more friends for the FFA. From
Cincinnatti I traveled to Kansas City
for our National FFA Convention. I
got back home on October 21 and
then started my chapter visitations
on the 22nd. Visiting chapters was a
new experience for me and I must
admit it took some getting use to. The
first week of chapter visitation Ted
was in Jacksonville for the Greater
Jacksonville Fair and we got together
and visited 8 chapters. On Friday of
that week we were in Perry for the
State FFA Forestry finals and the
State Forestry Banquet. On Satur-
day, October 27 we were back in
Jacksonville for the judging contest
at the Jacksonville Fair. In the
month of November I visited with a
chapter each day and ended up my
chapter visitation on December 7. In
all I visited with 41 chapters in my
area, which included all of them.
I want to say this to the chapters I
visited, "I really appreciate the time
and trouble you went to while I was
at your chapter in order tto show me

good time and tell me what your
chapter was doing. I want to thank
the advisors in Area II because I be-
lieve every last one of them bought
me lunch while I was at their school,
something I didn't expect." On Dec-
ember 6 I was able to attend the
Hamilton FFA Banquet, the first
one of the year. One week later, on
December 13, I was at the Santa Fe
FFA Banquet. The Livestock and
Dairy judging schools were held on
January 12 in Gainesville. I was able
to attend. On February 6, we met in
Sampa for the State Fair and also to
visit with Tampa Electric Company
and Florida Power Corporation. On
February 27 the North Florida Fair
had their beef show held in Madison.
On April 1, we met in Tallahassee
to plan for our state convention. We
were there until Friday when we left
for Gainesville to be at the State
Judging Contest on Saturday. On
April 18 I was in Palatka for the Sea-
board Coastline Forestry Day. More
new methods were demonstrated in
the different areas of Forestry. This
about brings me up to date on the ac-
tivities in which I have been involved
in so far. I hope to be seeing many of
you at Daytona Beach this June and
if I accidently walk by and forget to
speak, just yell and ask me if I
thought I was too good to speak be-
cause after all I was elected to serve

the state staff to

Summer, 1974

the Southern Region Leadership
Conference in Covington, Georgia.
This gave me a big boost into my year
as a state officer by learning how to
be a successful and hard working
state officer.
We found our way back to Florida
and stopped in Gainesville for the
State LeaderOhip Conference. The
work we did there has shown up in
your district officers this s year.
After the Leadership Conference
we went on the Annual State Officers
Goodwill Tour. I was surprised at all
the companies and people who sup-
port the Florida Association. I guess
that has been the highlight of my
year thus far. Getting to know the
other officers, and the exchange
student Tony Balten was one of the
main goals of the tour.
When we ended the Goodwill
Tour we finally were able to go back
to our places of abode.
After I rested up, I attended the
four Area Leadership Schools, Area
II, Area III, District 7 and District 8
of Area IV.
Walter and I started visiting the
schools in Area III after the Leader-
ship Schools were over. I visited 35
chapters in Area III, one in Area V
and 12 in Area IV.
In between chapter visits I
attended many FFA activities; It
would be impossible to name them
all. Highlights: Citrus FFA Horse
Show, Tampa Fair-Mini Goodwill
Tour, FHA District Meeting -
Palatka, State Youth Conference -
Tallahassee, National FFA Conven-
tion Kansas City, Missouri,
Basketball game against Polk
County Officers, Governors
Luncheon, Winter Haven, Citrus
Fair time came around and I was
at the Central Florida Fair for FFA
day and the banquet that night. I
attended four other Fairs: Citrus
County Fair, Sumter County Fair,
Lake County Fair, and the Manatee
County Fair.
Banquet and Contest time are
also here and already I've attended
four chapter Banquets and the Sub-
District Contest of Sub-District 5 in
These highlights are what have
made my year as a state officer a
happy and prosperous year. I've
signed up 32 men in the FFA Alumni
Association and hope to sign many
more up. For enlisting these men I'll
receive an award at our next
National Convention.
I'm looking forward to seeing each
of you at the State Convention in
June. Jimmy Edwards

Chapter Activity
As Area IV Veep
As I come to the close of my 10th
month of serving as your vice
president from Area IV, I can say it
has been an exciting and rewarding
I hope this column and the rest of our
columns can bring to your realization
that serving as a
state officer does
take a little of
our time but our
pay check is -M
seeing members
of the Florida
FFA take the in-
centive and get
the ambition to
run not only
their chapter but
also themselves Attkisson
in a respectable
manner. By seeing this in each chap-
ter, I have attended or any FFA func-
tion I have had the opportunity to go
go to, I can reassure myself that none
of my functions as an officer have
been in vain.
Indeed it has been exciting for me.
It started by attending Florida Citrus
Mutual's 25th anniversary dinner at
the Citrus Showcase in Winter
Haven. Later in July I had the plea-
sure of attending the 2nd Annual
State President's Conference in
Washington, D.C. along with Ted. It
was at this conference I found how
little I really knew about the different
FFA programs. After seeing the
National FFA Center and listening
to many different talks from various
staff members, I now can see what
makes this organization so great. I
also had the privilege of meeting with
many dignitaries such as congress-
men and senators. I also had the
honor of meeting Julie Eisenhower at
a reception held for the state officers
in the rose garden of the White
House. In case you were watching the
Watergate trials in July, while John
Erlichman testified, you might have
noticed Ted and me in the audience.
The month of September started
about a change. Instead of traveling
as a group with the other officers, I
was by myself on chapter visits and
FFA cookouts. District 7 was probab-
ly the largest leadership school we
had, with over 250 chapter officers
and members present. Wayne
Hunter and Ernie Lewis did an ex-
cellent job in organizing the school.
The next leadership school was

Florida Future Farmer

two weeks later at South Florida Jr.
College. This was one of the most en-
joyable Leadership schools I had
been to in quite a while.
October was one month I was sort
of busy with the 45th National FFA
Convention in Kansas City and the
2nd Annual Vocational Officer's
Conference in Tallahassee. It was
also a time when many FFA chapters
had their greenhand ceremonies and
these were very impressive. I wish I
could have gone to all of them, but
there are only so many days each
November and December got a
little cool as I turned off my air condi-
tioner and turned on a little heat
while I visited more chapters. In Dis-
trict 7 some visiting was done with
Wayne Hunter.
Speaking of leadership schools,
Miriam Hapner of Sarasota held the
First Annual Sarasota County
Federation Leadership School. This
was done very well. I only wish there
were more leadership schools to not
only instill positive leadership ideas
in FFA members but also in a lot of
the advisors!
The month of January brought
more visits to different schools.
Although I can't name all of the
chapters, I must say that no two
visits were alike and each offered a
different enjoyment.
Before I knew it February was on
us and the fairs were here. First the
State Fair in Tampa, where I am
proud to say Sam Robinson, a fellow
Polk Countain from Kathleen, had
the grand champion steer. The State
Fair was something I had been look-
ing forward to as this was the first
time in four months the officers as a
team had been together.
Of course February brought FFA
Week. In Area IV WTVT in Tampa
ran four minute spots on member's
projects, while the Dade City Chap-
ter put on an all out campaign not
only in the school but in the com-
munity as well even without gas!
state officers in Tallahassee to plan
our 46th State Convention. We had a
week of hard work and many ideas
were presented to make our conven-
tion the best yet.
As I close this column I can only
say I wish there were 13,000 other
state officers each year to do the
things we have done. There will be
seven new officers elected this year
and every year. You have that oppor-
tunity. I'm sure you wouldn't want to
pass it up. I'm looking forward to the
closing weeks in office. If I can ever be
of service, please let me know. Hope
to see you soon! Frank Attkisson

then so some of us began visiting
different chapters that month.
September was also spent planning,
preparing, and holding the various
district and area leadership schools
for chapter officers throughout the
state. I attended the District VII
school in Brandon along with Frank
and Jimmy, the Area III School in
Tavares with Jimmy and Frank, the
Area V School in Okeechobbee with
Ted and Kevin, and the Area II
School in Lake City with Billy,
Jimmy, and Ted.
In October, the "Team" was back
together as we traveled to Kansas
City, along with about 250 other
Florida Delegates, to attend the 46th
Annual National FFA Convention. I
enjoyed the convention and gained
much inspiration from it just as I am
sure all of you who attended did. It
was really great! The week after we
returned from Kansas City, the seven
of us met in Tallahassee where we
joined the state officers of five other
youth organizations at the 2nd
Annual State Vocational Youth
Conference. The other participants
included the state officers of the
The first Saturday in November,
I attended a district FHA Meeting in
Lakeland. At this meeting I had the
opportunity to speak before the 901
Future Home Makers who were in
attendance. That's right -901
FHA'ers! They really had a great
meeting and I had a good time
representing the FFA!
The next week Ted and I were at
the Volusia County Fair in DeLand.
We have attended many county fairs
this year, but the reason that I picked
this one to write about is because I
have a sad report to make regarding
your state president. The night of the
steer sale, a cow-milking contest was
also held. There were three teams
competing. Three members of the
County School Board made up one
team, three members of the County
Commissioners composed the 2nd,
and Ted Edwards, Aida Tatum the
Fair Queen, and some other FFA
officers made up the third. Ted's
team didn't win ... Ted's team
didn't even come in 2nd! As a matter
of fact, they didn't even have enough
milk to come in third, but the officials
gave it to them anyway. I sure wish I
knew who the third member of that
team was.
Later on in November, I

represented the state officers at the
Annual Moor-Man's Scholarship
Banquet at the University of Florida.
In December several chapters
throughout the state began having
their annual banquets. Most of
December was consumed by the
Holiday Season, so it was really a
short month.
I started 1974 off by continuing to
visit chapters in January. During
that month I had the opportunity to
attend the Florida State Orange
Convention in Cocoa Beach. It was
my good fortune to represent the
Florida Association FFA at this
event and to be the guest speaker at
the youth day banquet which
concluded their convention.
In February, we were all in
Tampa for the state fair and also a
short, two-day, mini goodwill tour.
Two weeks later Jimmy, Frank, and
I attended the State Citrus
Identification Contest in Winter
Haven, on the 20th, and later that
week attended the Annual
Governor's Luncheon, also at the
Citrus Festival.
March 1 was FFA day at the
Central Florida Fair in Orlando. The
next week Ted and I also attended 4-
H day at the fair. Later that same
week, the state officers basketball
team went down to Ft. Meade to
meet the challenge of the District
VIII and Polk County Federation
Officers. We tore'm up-48 to 21!
On March 29, Ted, Jimmy, and I
attended the State Land Judging
Contest in Ocala.
During the first week in April, we
all met in Tallahassee to begin plan-
ning for our State Convention and to
get everything ready for the State
Judging Contests that were held in
Gainesville on the 6th of April. Just
recently the State FHA Convention
was held in Clearwater.
So fellow members there you have
it, as it has gone up to now. I just
want to say that it has really been a
rewarding year for me to serve as your
state vicepresident from Area III. I
am looking forward to the remainder
of our FFA year and to serving you at
the convention, in Daytona Beach,
where you elected me nearly one year
ago. We are really planning a great
convention to climax our term as
state officers and we hope that each
and every one of you will be in
Daytona Beach in June. The con-
vention will give you an opportunity
to meet people and have a good time,
as well as to learn more about the
FFA and how you can become more
involved in our great organization. I
hope to see you there! Walter Graham

wound up in Okeechobee. We made
television appearances, spoke at civic
clubs, and toured Walt Disney World
along with many other activities. We
not only told others the story of the
FFA but learned a great deal about
Florida Agriculture ourselves. The
Goodwill Tour will easily be one of
the highlights of our year.
Each year the state president is
employed by the Department of Agri-
culture. The job has many responsi-
bilites mainly which is to represent
the Department at county and re-
gional fairs with a commercial ex-
hibit. I started working for the De-
partment of Agriculture the first
week of September.
Throughout September and the
first of October your state officers
participated with district officers in
hosting the District Leadership
Schools. The District Leadership
Schools are for chapter officers and
have the same goals as the state lead-
ership school. Another enjoyable re-
sponsibility of the state president is to
attend conventions of industries and
associations which support the FFA.
During September and October I was
privileged to attend the conventions
of the Florida Fruit and Vegetable
Association and also the Florida
Nurserymen and Growers Asso-
Approximately 15,000 Future Far-
mers traveled to Kansas City last
October for the 46th National FFA
Convention. Committee meetings,
speeches, delegate luncheons, elec
tion of national officers, controver-
sial business meetings, retiring add-
resses, and crowning of the Star
American Farmer and Agribusi-
nessman were among the many
happenings at the convention.
Throughout the inspirational week
there was alot of work and little sleep
because I was a delegate and one of
the committee chairmen. The state
officers left the National Convention
with many new friends, renewed
acquaintances, and confidence and
pride in our country and generation,
as well as FFA.
In October your state officers also
participated in the 2nd annual Voca-
tional Conference of Leaders. The
conference was for state officers of all
vocational clubs and lasted for two
and a half days in Tallahassee.
During the conference we exchanged
ideas with the various vocational
clubs represented and learned more
about vocational education. We also
met dynamic state leaders including

Governor Reubin Askew, Secretary
of State, Dick Stone, and President
of the Senate, Malory Home.
The remainder of the calendar
year was very busy. I attended the
State Forestry Field Day in Perry as
well as the preliminary contest in
Area I, The Florida Forestry
Festival, and fairs and judging con-
tests at Marianna, Jacksonville,
Tallahassee, DeLand, and Cocoa.
Throughout the last few months of
1973 I also visited chapters and with
the arrival of December began travel-
ing to chapter banquets.
I continued the visitation of chap-
ters in January with a two week tour
through Area I with Area I Vice
President, Greg Evers. We started
chapter visitations in Tallahassee
and went sa far west as Pensacola
and Walnut Hill. We visited approxi-
mately fifteen chapters telling them
about our State FFA Association,
proficiency awards, judging contests,
and our jobs as state officers. With
the end of the tour I attended a
recognition dinner for Bob Hinton, a
former national officer and state
president from Turkey Creek. The
fair season cranked up in 1974 with
the West Palm Beach Fair. After the
fair and judging contests, it was time
for the state fair in tampa.
During the state fair, the state
officer team had another executive
committee meeting which lasted a
couple of days. At the meeting we
practiced banquet speeches, FFA
ceremonies, and prepared for the
remainder of our tenure. We also had
a short Goodwill Tour visiting
Tampa Electric Company in Tampa
and Florida Power Company in St.
Petersburg. We spoke to the power
companies about the FFA and
expressed our appreciation to them
for everything they do for our organi-
zation. While at the state fair, I
attended the Miss Sunflower Pag-
eant, judging contests, an apprecia-
tion dinner for Commissioner of
Agriculture Doyle Connor, the AGR
Luncheon, and met country western
singer Mel Tillis.
National FFA week is recognized
each year to publicize our organi-
zation through many activities syn-
chronized for this one week. On
February 19, Governor Reubin Askew
honored our organization by signing
a proclamation making February 16-
23 National FFA Week. Besides
bringing the proclamation to the
Governor, I also spoke at a Kiwanis
Club in Tallahassee, was guest
speaker at the Poplar Springs FFA
Banquet, and attended the Ft. Pierce

During the remainder of Feb-
ruary and all of March, I attended
fairs, judging contest, visited chap-
ters, and spoke at FFA chapter
banquets. Also in March I attended
the Juding Contests in Orlando at
the Central Florida Fair and the
State Land Judging Contest in
Ocala. Also for the first time in State
FFA annals, your state officers
formed a basketball team to meet the
challenge of the officers of the Polk
County Federation. We splendidly
outdribbled, out manuevered, and
shot the Polk Countians victory of
over twenty points. In a grudge re-
match we emerged victorious by even
more points. We will accept any
This year the State Convention
planning session was held in Talla-
hassee by your state officers the first
week of April. At the planning
session, we wrote speeches, our ves-
pers service, retiring addresses, re-
wrote scripts for sessions, chose
honorary state farmer degree reci-
pients, and prepared for the state
judging contest in Gainesville for live-
stock, meats, poultry, and dairy. We
also represented our state association
at an Appreciation Day for Legis-
lators hosted by the Department of
Agriculture. The state judging
contests found state officers running
cards, leading groups, tallying scores.
I am now busy helping to prepare
for our state convention June 10-14.
Banquets are also in full swing and I
will be traveling to them until the end
of the school year.
This, the third week of April, was
very busy with a Seaboard Coastline
Appriciation Day, conference of the
Florida Federation of Fairs, and the
State FHA Convention. The Sea-
board Coastline Appreciation Day
was in Palatka, and I had the oppor-
tunity to ride one of their trains, the
"Spirit of 76," from Jacksonville to
Palatka. The day was very educa-
tional and impressive with
dignitaries from all over the United
States. At the Appreciation Day I
presented honorary degrees of state
farmer to five deserving men
including our Governor Reubin
Askew and Assistant Secretary of
Agriculture, Robert W. Long.
It has been a privilege and honor
for me to represent our association
the past year. Of all the activities this
year, the most enjoyable have been
those in which I came in contact with
our Florida FFA Members. I am
looking forward to seeing all of you at
our state convention. Until then good
luck and keep up the FFA image.

All State Judging Finals are Held in Gainesville

This year saw a new wrinkle in our
judging contest procedures. All state
finals in livestock, dairy, meats, and
poultry judging contests were held in
Gainesville at the University of
Florida. All comments concerning
the day-long activity were favorable,
facilities were excellent and partici-
pation was good. Over 1500 FFA
members attended the judging
activities and participated in what,
according to many teachers, were the
best judging contests ever held. A
special "thank you" to everyone who
was concerned with making the day
so successful. The results for team
placings as well as top ten individuals
in each contest are given.
