Th Avalanche contained an ar

abort rouse in Vocational Agricul

14tb anil we arc of the opinion
that' most of the farmers of this
section understand to some, extent
th., value of sich a course to them,
but nevertheless, we believe that the
proportion merits further publicity,
and wish to urge every progressive
farmer in thia section to get in
touch with Farm Agent Jennings
and get detail a to what is re
quired of entrants.
The school will le conducted by
Prof R C. Mowery of the LubbocK
