Lassen Youths Enter Contest
January 18, 1948

Wallace Nye, senior FFA member, and Jim Fraley, junior member, will represent the Lassen county FFA chapter at the public speaking contest in Alturas on January 24. Subject of Nye’s talk is soil erosion and Fraley will speak on cooperative marketing.

Participating in this contest will be representatives of FFA chapters in Tulelake, McArthur, Cedarville, Alturas and Susanville.

Winners of this contest will go to Redding for the regional meet. Winners of the six regions will compete in the state contest, and first place in the state FFA public speaking contest will receive $100 and second place $50.

At the national convention, winners of each of the state contests will compete for top honors in the nation. The national convention is held in Kansas City each year in the fall school term.

Last year Ed Zangger represented the local chapter and placed second in the California contest.
