Why Do They Leye the Farm?
A problem that is now U-fore col
lege presidents and lVuus of Agri
cultural roliep's Is found in this
mtlon: Why do farmer boys w ho
are able to euter a collcgu or uul
verslty cIioomc law, medicine, engi
mvriiig or teaching as is profession
Instead ot preparing for successful
lives upon the farm? Nearly Ave
hundred ot the students now attend
ing the University of Missouri eltlsrr
now live on the tarm or have iciit
considerable of their life on the farm.
Of tlH nltout one hundred and six
tyitrv taking agriculture. Why all
this movement away from the farm?
I our agrii-ulttiral edu-utUm to
blame? tirdH'S our lower schools
set lip talis' th'iils of life's calling?
lVan Muniforl, ot the Mlssimri Col
lege of Agriculture, when asked lor
an explanation said. "1 don't under
stand the reason for It. Hoys kcviii
to lx dominated by other ideals, ij
don't know why." j
A poa-lhle explanation was sug
gested by lr. A. lioss Hill, lvanof
ths Missouri Teachers College. He
thinks our present high fchHl
courm'S nre responsible for this
movement. He thinks the remedy Is
to have agriculture taught In tliese
svhiHils. "Four years sicut In the
hili school as courses are usually
arranged," sal. I lr. Illll,"mny wean
