I 700 AMERICAN SOLDIERS TAKE FARM TRAINING All now tion Dean Harry Hayward Had Vital Part in Educa tional Work Last Thursday's Public Ledger contained an account of the work accomplished in the College of ! Agriculture at Beaune which ac cording to information received recently from Dean Harry Hay ward, finished its work on June 6 at that point, rapid demobilization j having removed most of the stu dents. While it is understood that some of the courses are continued for the Army of Occupation, it is ex 'the in pected that most of the instructors "will return to America early in July. The Ledger article says; "One of the largest colleges of the university which is being con ducted at Beaune, France, for members of the American expedi tionary force is the College of Agriculture. This college has a faculty of fifty-one men and a total I student enrollment of 700. "The immediate direction of this college is in charge of Dr. Harry Hayward, of Delaware College, who, with Captain E. N. Went worth as assistant director, is making possible the plan of Dr. K. L. Butterfield, of the army edu cational commission, for a 'suc cessful educational service to a vast number, of representative American young men.' "The courses of instruction are grouped into four departments. Ten courses covering the feeding and breeding of animals, dairy farming, poultry, husbandry and animal hygiene, are included un der the heading of animal hus bandry. The agronomy depart ment group covers work along the lines of crops, soils and farm machinery. Seven courses are of fered in the department of horti culture and forestry, covering all phases of these subjects. There also is a department of rural economy and sociology. to It ly "When the students entered the college they were permitted to •select their schedules, choosing two courses in the college of agri culture and one each in two other departments. More of the students elected rural economy and sociol ogy than horticulture or fores try, and nearly as many as those i electing agronomy. The indication j s that s ° ldier fa ™ er is Y ital - ly interested in problems of the home, family and community. _ Most of the work is given with out the laboratory training which accompanies the teaching in the agricultural colleges of the United States.

The speakers include ! agricultural experts who are j there." Country life, co-operation, pûblT lands and other subjects | which confront the soldier-farmer di-j furnish the subject matter for f their talk, "The j weekly meetings, in which the dis | cussion is open. Talks also are j given by the students on the I phases of farming in which they tiare interested. The discussions cover all phases of farming and all sections of the country. Few Failures Reported ,r In the farmers' club and in the class room an important work ac complished is tJhlat of teaching the viewpoint of the farmer in other sections of the country. French agriculture also fur nishes part of the discussions and study at Beaune College of Agri culture. Trips are taken to near by cheese factories, to vineyards and gardens. "The work carried on many miles from home presents great difficulties, but despite these diffi culties the work of the College of Agriculture is successful. The most striking characteristic has been the enthusiasm and earnest ness that has been put into the work by instructors, drawn large ly from the army and the student Z "veMMoTenreSeSVthe tr departments^ less ttan twenty-five men were reported unsatisfactory work.
