Mississippi Girl's 4-H Record
Shows Unusual Energy
Few of the Nation’s 2,100,000
white and colored 4-H’ers will
have more to report on National
4-H Achievement Day, November
12, than 17-year-old Jean Doris
McIntosh of Decatur, Miss., who
took the lead in getting her fam
ily out of a shabby rented dwell
ing into a modern new home of
The youngest of four children,
Jean always felt crowded in the
three-room house where she lived
in the little town. And nothing
tired her so much as carrying wa
ter from the landlord’s house a
cross a pasture for her mother to
do the washing.
Seven years ago Jean joined her
local 4-H club and wanted more
than anything else to have a room

the other club girls. But she did
n’t have a room of her own. She
slept on a cot in a room with her
Jean’s home agent, Mrs. Maggie
Wilkerson consoled her by suggest
ing that a garden project would be
just as good. With the help of
her brother Billy Jack, she cleared
off a small plot and began rais
ing vegetables. But the young
ster never stopped wanting a room
of her own so that she could
beautify it just the way she want
The first year Jean’s garden won
a prize, and more than that, it
brought her $19 in sales. The
next year the 4-H’er did even bet
ter, but saving up enough from
her garden receipts for a room of
her own seemed awfully slow. So
she turned to chopping and pick
ing cotton, baby-sitting, and other
Carefully depositing her money
in a checking account, Jean added
to it year by year. By 1953, she
had saved up nearly $200. One
evening after supper, she deftly
maneuvered the conversation a
round to houses and lots. Then in
the middle of the discussion, she
suggested, “Why don’t we buy a
lot and build a house of our own.”
Her father didn’t see how they
could do it; her mother was doubt
ful; and her brother and two sis
ters were interested, but had no j
As the weeks passed, Jean de-1
cided to go a step further. She:
began looking for a lot in a de-\
sirable neighborhood and found
one. Then she took her mother to
see it. Together they went to the
owner and offered to buy the lot.
He wanted $100 spot cash. Before
her mother could reply, Jean said,
“We’ll take it,” pulled out her
checkbook and paid the man in
Back home that night they
broke the news to the other mem
bers of the family. That’s all it
took. Everybody got busy. Her
father, realizing that he would
never get ahead on his part-time
job, went to Flint, Michigan, got
work there, and sent money home
every payday toward the new J
The older sister, Mrs. Sadie
Baynes, who had just married,
suggested to her husband that
they move to a city so they could
help more. Soon they were liv
ing in Chicago. Having had two
years of secretarial training at Al
corn A & M College, Mrs. Baynes
landed a position with a large
mail-order house, and Mr. Baynes
got a factory job.
Mrs. McIntosh did more wash
ang and ironing and house clean
ing for Decatur families, and Billy
Jack took jobs mowing lawns and
working gardens after school.
Within a year, the family had
saved up $1,800, and had started
building. When the attractive six
room house was completed, they
owed only $1,100. Nine months
later that was paid off.
Now Jean has her own room. It
