The Greater Agri cultural College Association is now working out plans for a state. I wide educational campaign. A Greater Agricultaral College will mean the proper agricultural 1 training and inspiration of our I young men and women, resulting ultimately in prosperous and hap i py rural homes, good roads, bet- I ter schools, and the real and last ing improvement of every part of 'i the State. The Association is promised the co-operation of the I Commercial Associations, Rotary and Kiwanis clubs, Womens' E clubs, ministers and traveling i men. We are going to have a Greater Agricultural College, but I we want the backing of the entire State in this important enterprise. Help us arouse the interest of the E children in agriculture and stook 1 raising; the interest of the women I in the splendid living conditions t made possible by scientific agri- i culture. The wonderful results I obtained by the vocational agri- t cultural schools throughout t Louisiana in the last year point the way to what may be obtained i through a Greater Agricultural College. Let up all work together % and give Louisiana the high standing she deserves among the agricultural states,1 Z Are You a Target For i Influenzat It Hits Listless, Run-down People , First-Their Blood Is Thin GERMS EVERYWHERE 1N EPIDEMIC Be Prepared-Strengthen and a Build Up Your Blood with Pepto.Mangan, .
