to secure an instructor who will con

in favor of trying to secure one of the

tors at Augustan a have also been spo

class. The T. M. C- A. library of 400
volumes has one section devoted en

books of the various departments and
bulletins of the agricultural depart

run of late.

This club can be continued through
out the entire winter, and actual soil
experiments can be conducted in the
bowling alleys which are no longer
used. Agricultural clubs have been or
ganized in a great many associations
throughout the country and have met
with unqualified success wherever at
tempted. Secretary Smedley this
morning expressed himself as strongly
in favor of organizing such a club, and
if the interest manifested by certain
of the Y. M. C. A. men In the subject
thus far can be taken a9 a criterion,
the study of enriching depleted soil
areas and of proper seeding and plant
ing will be in full blast in the very
ger that the banks of the reservoir
basins will be crowded with specta
tors. Commissioner Rear upholds Mr.
Kirdeall in his contention, and until;
the fences are built, insists that the
games be played elsewhere, though'
the field may he used for practice with
the understanding that the bos stay
