H COLLEGE DORMITORY fl splendid crops having been gath- M ereil "this year. The parade M grounds and certain cottages for M College employees complete the M College plant, which altogether H embraces lib' acres. M Consider the fact that each and H every building has the most up- to-datc equipment, and the insti- M tutimi in all its extent is before M you. Does it not impress you that B this is nu institution worthy the H pride of any people, of any state) fl SCOPE OF WORK. H If then, the institution has the H physical and moral environment B duirable, and the buildings and m equipment necessary for the most M i Motive work, what other phases M ure there that enter into a coin H sideration of the value or need of M ihc school? The courses offered M and the educational worth of the H instruction, of course. M The bill providing for the land- M pi nut institutions sets forth that B the colleges nre instituted "for M the purpose of promoting it he lib- M oral and practical education of M the industrial classes in the sev- M rial pursuits and professions of M life," especial emphasis being m placed ou the necessity of iustruc H Uon in agriculture and mechanic M art and related subjects. Under B the direction of the Board of H Trustees, and in thorough accord H with the evident intent 'of the bill H whfch created it, tho Agricultural H College offers instructive work H logically divided into six schools: H Agriculture, Domestic Science H and Arts, Engineering and Me- H chonic Arts, Commerce, General H Science, and Music. H All the work throughout the H College is arranged in strict ac- H cordance with both the national H and State laws under which the H institution is working, and is in H line with the spirit and policy of H the best agricultural colleges of H the country. M NEEDS OF THE STATE. H Does the Stute of Utah need H broadly educated and scientific H farmerat Then the Agricultural O College is a necessity. H Does the State have need of H young women who know how; to H make a homo along the most ap- H proved scientific lines girls who H know how to cook, and wluit to H cook, girls who know how to sew, H girls who know how to be praetl- H cal in their home lifef Then in- H deed has the State need of the H Agricultural College. H Does the Stale need competent H eniflsinen in carpentry, at the H forge, in factory and machine shop! Has Utah need of lirsLl class mcuhuuius, surveyors, and irngution engineers! Then most eertuuily is the Agricultural Col lege fulfilling the design of its. foumlera and meeting the situa tion most creditably. Do we need men of business training, men who know how to keep systematic hold of their own ullairs, and men who can. systema tize business for others, as well! Then is the Agricultural College meeting the need. If the Stute neods men -and wo men with scientific Itnowledge along the special lines offered by the Agricultural College, men aild women who also (possess the broadened mind that comes ;with a comprehensive knowledge of language and literature, inciden tal instruction offered in the vari ous courses, then the- Agricultural College is meeting tho need as no other institution can providing the worjc is given effectively. EFFECTIVENESS OF WORK. The effectiveness of any school m best told in the success of its students and graduates, its recog nized standing among other schools, in ithe decision of compe tent judges w&ero work done has come into competition with that of other schools, in tho scholarly attainment of its faculty, and in tho geucrar spirit of tho student body. The. high position in edu cational busmess, governmental and industrial lifo now held by graduates and students of tho in stitution speak -volumes for its effectiveness. A list of graduates with positions 'held will compare muvo than favorably with a list frjun any wesljorn institution. SUCCESS OF GRADUATES AND STUDENTS. More thiui 100 students have 'graduuted -with degrees nud 110 huve been given certificates from the various high school' courses If space permitted, it would be iiitciestinur to print a complete list of AgrictiMural Collego gradu ates, giviu,y their present occupa tions and salaries. A few repre sentative alumni selected at ran dom will suillco to show how -universally successful A. 0. grwduates have been. Tho following nametl persons have received practically no training other than that given uy uiuirulmii mater. They -are re ceiving salaries rauging- from $11200 to 12100. W. W.

Besides the aboe named gradu ates, mauy others are engaged in positions equally lucrative in dif ferent phases of agriculture, chemistry, commerce, and domes tic science. A great number, also, have received advanced degrees from Eastern aud Westru colleges and universities, where, without execptiou, ci edits and udvanccd standing have been giveu students for their work at the A. O. of U. Aside from the degree graduates, students who have been graduuted from the certificate courses have always been in demand as special teachers in high schools, mechan ics in various trades, clerks in commercial and banking estab lishments, and many are promin ent farmers aud stock raisers in Utah aud adjoiuing states. STANDARD OF COLLEGE. The high standing of the Col Ityo among other schools is at. tewted in tho fact that the work required for certificates aud de grees exceeds that repaired by many other schools of recognized standard, aud in the fact that full credit for work done here is given by the great eastern and western universities, Mich as Harvard, Cornell, Chicago, Stanford. COST PER STUDENT. Accordlujr to the report of tho U. S. Commissioner of Education, j the average cost per student for I the colleges and universities throughout tho country is $il2i,00.

ATTENDANCE. During the year 11)04-1005, ihcie weie '(10 students in the Agricultural College, exclusive of summer school students, repre senting 15 states: Utah, Idaho, Arizona, Alaska, California, Colo rado, Maine, Maryland, Moutaua, Nebraska, Nevada, New Mexico, Oregon, South Dakota, and Wyo ming. The students from Utah represent the following comities: Beaver, Box Elder, Cache, Carbon, Davis, Emery, Iron, Juab, Kane, Millard, Morgan, Rich, Salt Lake, San Juan, Sanpete, Sevier, Sum mit, Tooele, Uinta, Utah, Wasatch, Washington, Wayne, and Weber. The atteiidanco by courses was as follows: Agriculture, 115; Domestic Science and Arts, 131 Commerce, 142; Engineering and Mechanic Arts, 108; General Science, 21; Specials, 8; College Preparatory, 1)1; Sub-Preparatory, 40. There were 145 students of collegiate grade. FACULTY. Tho faculty of the College and members of the Experiment Sta tion Staff number about sixty, including professors, instructors, and assistants. They have re ceived their training in the best colleges and universities of America aud Europe, and are pre eminently qualified for the work of their respective departments. Ou the arid farms last year, "Forty Fold," or "Golden Coin," "Lofthouse" aud Martin Amber wheats ran as high as 27 bushels to the acre. Other wheats, still used by Utah farmers, fell, where grown under exactly the same conditions, to 15 bushels auf iow er. Supposing wheat to bo vorth seventy-five cents per bushel ten bushels are worth $7.50. $7 50 more to the aero by using the right kind of wheat I Is it worth while t Under the direction of the Cdl lege, "depth of plowing tests" were made last jcar Plats side by side in the prosecution of this work were plowed various depths. The rcslilts show a difference of 12 and 13 bushels to tho acre be tween very shallow and the eight and nine inch plowing, and. be tween the latter und the deep sub soiled plats there is a difference in favor of the subsoilcd of from two to five bushels. It would be well for the farmer to note such facts as these. Experiments on wheat ground in Tooele County in 11)05 with a view of demonstrating the value of spring harrowing showed a yield of from five to six bushels more to the acre on plats that had been spring harrowed only over those that had been harrowed and rolled. Tho results from other farms corroborated these results At this rate, the roller costs the farmer practically $3.75 for every acre rolled. Experiments at the College in dicate that "Brome Grass" stands second only to alfalfa in nutritive value and drouth resis tant. It gives promise of convert ing into green pastures, areas heretofore regarded as absolutely valueless. All it needs is a little intelligent handling to give it a good start and after that it re quires no attention. The vnluo to Utah each year of the experiments on alfalfa alone at the College exceeds tho entire ttate appropriations for the sup-1 port of the institution. I I The product of tho poultry in-1 dustry of Kansas for 1905 was greater than the mineral output' of Colorado in tho samo year. Poultry raising icquired little capital and is work suited to wo men and children. Let a daugh ter take a winter courso in poultry raising at the Agricultural Col lege and get a start in a healthful paying occupation. During this time of agitation over pure foods such appetizing and wholesome fruit preparations as are taught at tho Agricultural Collego would find ready sale at good prices. In many homes in Utah tho bin- den of tho Hummer sewing has been taken from the tired mother and well carried by the duughter who took a couise in Domestic Arts lust eur ut the Agricultural Col'cge. If u young woman has the ne cessary taste and ability and will pi operJy prepare herself lor tho work by a course at tho Agricul tural College, she will have a good position awaiting her when she is graduated. This year's graduates of the Agricultural College who desired to teach Domestic Science ana Arts had positions offered them ueftrt commencement, one young woman having her choice betweJU thrt o good places. ; Board and lodging in Logan j may be obtained by students at I from $2.50 to $3.50, an extraordi- narily low rate compared with I- that of the city and most college I towns. 1 At the St. Louis Exposition, the exhibit of the Agricultural CoL ii lege secured tho GRAND PRIZE i over all competitive schools, these at numbering more than 40. The IK. collaboration of work in Mechanic 9) .- Arts was awarded a gold medal, fgf tho highest. e With but two or three excep- 8 tions every one of the uoventy odd S creameries in the State of Utah 1 is in charge of a student or gradu- ate from the Dairy department at 8 tho Agricultural College. That' I quite a record. Logan has the advantage of i more water than any city or town in the state. Tho city possesses a B network of great canals and its gutters and ditches are over filled with running water. Tho Agri cultural Collego is particularly fortunate in having abundanco at i any season of tho year. At the Portland Exposition last , ; year the collective exhibit of tho Agricultural College was given tho highest award gold medal this in competition -with all schools west of Denver. Depart ment Exhibits were awarded two gold medals and various silver y medals.
