Their efforts are focused on the national 4-H Safety program directed by the Cooperative Exterwion Service and arranged by the National Committee on Boys and Girls Club Work. Farm boys and girls enrolled in the prograr\. — and their city cousins as well — can take their share of credit for helping to decrease traffic deaths last year. Proof that they're on the job is the record high enrollment reached in 1957 when 815,000 club members between the ages of 10 and 21 took part in some form of safety acti- vity according to the National Committee. And hard work does not go unrewarded. At the national level eight top ranking 4-H ers wiU receive $400 college scholarships and an all- expense trip to the National 4-H Club Congress in Chicago next December. The state winner also will attend the Congress with all-expenses paid, and it is estimated that nearly 4,000 youngsters will merit the county safety medaL All awards are provided by General Motors which has sup- ported the 4-H Safety program since 1944.
