No title – Gerald Dedge
Last week we showed picture of Gerald Dedge inspecting and trimming trees, and the above picture shows him dipping the gum from which turpentine is made. The Jasper Chapter of Future Farmers of America and their Advisor, Robert McMillan deserves a high commendation for the plendid accomplishment the Chapter has made this year. The Chapter produced 4 State Farmer Degrees this year which is truly a good record. The NEWS as well as our Civic Clubs which have supported the Chapter, and our citizens, congratulate Mr. McMillan and this group of fine Future Farmers.
