Teachers of agriculture will teach
teachers how to teach agriculture at
the University of Missouri summer
session, beginning Thursday. Many
times short courses have been offered
in agriculture but the teachers have
always been assistants and the course
very technical. This year, however,
three of the regular faculty of the
College of Agriculture will offer
In recent years there has been great
demand for the teaching of agriculture
in the rural and grade schools of the
state. There has been little success,
as the teachers have had no training
in agriculture themselves. These three
courses of three hours each will meet j
the demands of any school in the state,)
One course will enable a teacher to j
do the elementary work, and inspire a j
love for country life in the children
under his care. Much attention this
summer will be given to practical dem
onstrations in the fields, laboratories
and live stock buildings connected with
The courses in agriculture will in
clude study of soil, crop production,
grain judging and seed selection, plant
propagation, orcharding, vegetable and
ornamental gardening for the home,
origin and improvement of domesti
cated animals, the principles of feed
ing, the types of animals and live stock
"I expect to see at leist 100 teachers
enrolled in the agri .-ultural courses
this summer," said Prof. Joseph D.
Elliff. director of thj summer session.
"I have written mrny superintendents
urging them to cone and to send one I
of their best tearners if they cannot
