Agricultural Education Mov
ing Forward in Pennsyl
vania After the War
An important future is forecast
for the rural vocational school with
its courses in agriculture and home
making by Llndley H. Dennis, di
rector of the Agricultural education
al division of the State Department
of Public Instruction, in his report
to the Superintendent, Nathan C.
Schaeffor. War has interfered with
the expansion which was just com
mencing, but the interest lias been
maintained and very satisfactory
progress is stated by Prof. Dennis to
have been attained in the face of
shortage of teachers and other con
During the year ending July 1
there were twenty-three rural com
munity vocational schools in oper
ation with agricultural, homo mak
ing and academic departments in
addition to nineteen agricultural de
partments and ten home-making
schools in high schools. These were
in thirty-three counties. Special
. attention was given to crop raising
and livestock instruction. The reg
istration was 852 boys and 1,035
girls. The students worked on
farms, on lAbei-ty Loan and Red
Cross committees, made packing
boxes for the Red Cross and aided
in other war activities, wliilo the
United States Hoys Working Re
serve camp at State College was a
branch of work in which the divis
ion took a prominent part.
Numerous exhibits were held of
products raised by boys and girls
and corn judging was a feature.
The agricultural pupils cultivated
'550 acres, of which 357 were in po
tatoes, 50 in corn and 25 in garden
and raised 5,926 hens, 50 ducks, 4 0
cows, 256 pigs, 13 calves and 59
sheep, the total products yielding
$85,695.25, of which $67,721.25 was
from crops, $8,985 for live stock
and $8,989 for poultry.
Farmers' night schools have been
started, special courses launched
for training agricultural teachers
and home making schools standard
The state stands second in agri
cultural and home economic schools.

chance to keep their uniforms, in
slend of returning them lor the scrap
pile at the end of a four-month period,

houses of Congress will vote prac
tically unanimously in favor of the
suggestion made by Secretary of War
Baker that the present legislation be
amended in order that every man may
have not only his uniforms, but his I
helmet and gas mask as souvenirs of
his service.
