It has been estimated, and tnceed
proven, that the orny nal research wo-1i
conducted by the State Un0.ers.ty in
the sugar indus.ry. has repaid the
commonwealth in increased produc',on
and in higher quality of product, more
than the Univers;ty has ever cost the

sugar farmer, the truck grower, the
dairyman. the orchardist, the stock

The youth, the younst man or the

will find here a minuatur,. world, with
a field for evcrv healthy activity, where
a welf-rounded ex:s.ence of useful
work, sane pleasure and co.e1neal
cempanionship is available.
In the student organizations. the
student publications, debating soc'e

field for the development of special
talents and abilities, and in the work
of these extra-curriculum institutions,
the students have the sympathy and
