The superintendent of agriculture of the public schools is
in charge of that department. He is a young man who is well,
schooled in what he is doing, with wide experience, and is also
secretary of the County Fair association and active in other civic
lines, and co-operates closely with farmers and county farm
associations in many ways. Besides him, Beltrami county has
two agricultural agents under the state department.
Bemidji school children have won first prizes at the state
fair for their cultivation of displays. They have won at the
county fairs. They have won at other county fairs. It is a
great department in the Bemidji public schools, and if any
school superintendent or "ag" instructor isn't certain in his own
school he will be welcome to visit Bemidji's school farm, and
obtain all necessary information from Mr. Olin, who has offices
at the High school.
