section of the Teachers* association.
Thursday the meetings will be held
jointly with the teachers, the morning
with those of the elementary section
and others interested in vocational edu
♦cation, and particularly in agricultural
education in the rural schools. At this
session will be heard the recommenda
tions adopted at the Davis conference

ers'of the association convention. At
this general session the most pressing
educational problems will be considered.
"Tor Friday morning is scheduled the
first conservation conference held in
California. The most prominent men

state are to be the speakers.
RURAL PROBLEM TOPIC
The afternoon session will be a round
robin .discussion of the' recommenda
tions of the California country life com
mission conference at Davis for state
-aid in agricultural education.
These recommendations provide that
the state shall bear part of the ex
pense of maintaining agricultural edu
cation departments in high and ele
mentary schools. It is also recom
mended that a thorough system of
supervision of such educational work
be provided from the state university
and the ..office of the state superinten
dent of public instruction.. Legisla
tion Is necessary to put such reforms
into effect. ,-
In addition to the state educators
and leaders who are to .speak, the
Teacher*.* association will have two
special speakers at their convention
from the east, . both men of high re
pute in their T^srk.
"This conference was deemed ad
visable," explained Professor Babcock,
"because of the . numerous - requests
made for it. The delegates at the
Davis gathering asked for further con
sideration and on a greater scale of
the problems we there took up. We
have included a,half day on conserv
ation because of Its tremendous im
portance in the life of California as
well as of the nation and (because such
a public service Is inalienably allied
with the conservation of youth In vo
cational education, just as all great
progressive movements are allied."
