In the country schools nearest the farm, practically no training at all
was given, a few years ago, in anything relating to agricultural or coun
try life. Our one-room, one-teacher schools may not be the best for present
needs and demands but they have been a great power in the process of
unifying our national life They are now being Improved, and with careful
attention may be made much more effective, and brought into touch with
present needs. Local organizations should be formed, with tne school as
a center, forming correspondents and reading clubs, and taking part in co
operative projects of all kinds. Our Agricultural Extension Division is
developing this movement. Consolidation when practicable, better teach
ers, more of them, better attendance, better training, accessible, efficient
trade schools of agriculture, and awakened Interest in farm and country
life, will mean that more boys and girls will want to stay on the farm—
