4-H Clubs Helps Meat Supply

75 Years Ago


Herald of May 10, 1945

The Seventh War Loan drive in Martinsburg will be headed by Mrs. Howard A. Kerr. She and her assistants plan a house-to-house canvas of the community. Every family will be urged to do their very best in aiding the campaign as it will require the cooperation of everyone to obtain the quota of $59,000, which has been set for Martinsburg.

Plans are shaping up for the proper observance of Memorial Day in Martinsburg and vicinity.

Personal and household treasures, cherished through the years by many generations of three prominent families, were scattered far and wide when the effects of the late Mrs. Caroline Lytle Ormsby were sold at public outcry at the home on West Allegheny Street, Martinsburg, last Friday.

Farm youths in 4-H Clubs are raising baby beefs, pigs, lambs and capons and promise to make a major contribution to the nation’s meat supply in 1945, report state club leaders at the Pa. State College. Clubs in 22 counties plan to contribute 100 tons of choice beef.
