AGRICULTURAL SCHOOL STARTS
The two Agricultural Short Term I
schools are now under way in our
county, one in the Missouri Valley
and the other in the Modale High
At both cenjfers the work is start-111

that of attendance and we are quite
sure that this will improve by the
first of the week. A good supply of I

which was already on hand.
Just a word about the men Vho 11
will have charge of these schools.
W. W. Stanfield, who has the work
at Missouri Valley, is perhaps the
best informed instructor of any of
the forty men who are taking charge
of the forty centers throughout the
state. Besides being a man of con-' 11
siderable farm experience he holds
a Bachelors and Masters degree in
agriculture from the State College at
Ames. He spent one year as an in
structor at Iowa State College and i\
bad charge of the agricultural work
in the Denison High School, which
has one of the strongest vocational
agricultural courses in the state, dur
ing 1917, 1918 and 1919.
Raymond Teachout has charge of
the work at Modale. He is an Ames
graduate who stood high in his class
es while at school. Since finishing
college he has been engaged in farm
ing near Shenandoah. He is a man
who has been putting scientific farm
ing into practical use on the farm
but who has made arrangements to
be away from his business for a few
months this winter in order to help
out in this movement for better agri
These instructors are paid by the
state, no tuition is charged those who
attend these courses, and yet there
re not enough men enrolled as yet
to retain the schools. If you are in
terested in a better education either
for yourself or for somebody else, do
what you can to help this movement
Several men, both young and old
are planning on entering next Mon
day, January 3, and you had better

western raw wool shrinks about 65
per cent, while Eastern wool is much ,j.
cleaner. The last sales of wool in
the west were at 20 cents a pound
and in the middle west at 40 cents.
Based upon either class of wool the
actual cost of raw material in a
man's woolen suit cannot exceed $2
to $3. These figures were brought
out by the National Wool Committee.:\
The price of a good woolen suit
varies from $50 to $75 at present.
If this sum of money were spent for ..
