The Rural Community Center
A number of agencies have been re
sponsible for the origin, growth and
developement of the rural community
center. Perhaps the most obvious is
the automobile, because it has enabled
farm people to gather together much
more easily than they could in the old
days. It's a matter of a very short run
from ocrner to corner of the average
township, and it's easy to get to even
ing meetings of one kind and another.
The state agricultural colleges have
done much to advance this work. too,
by arranging programs for evening
motings, furnishing speakers and giv
ing all the assistance in their power.
One other thing has been particular
ly helpful in this respect and that has
becan the farm electric light rnd power
plant introduced within the last few
years. Many a rural sdhool house that
formerly held its evening meetings
with Ihe aid of dim and smoky oil
lanmps er held no meW ings at all. now
shows a blaze af bright, cheerful clec
tric light from every window on one
or more evenings of ech w.(:,:. In the
first place electric light makos good
c.liihr, as compared with the dold meth
ods. It is aI, easy thing, t, tO;, arrange
the electric lights where they will do
the most good.
But perhaps the grt atest advantage
of electricity for the rural community
schoolhouse lies in the fact that it
mihik ps sible the use of stcri0optican
and motion pictures. For real enter
tainment tand for educational work
there are few things a" good is the mo
tion picture. It speaks a universal lan
Jguage. With its aid one can travel to
the four corners of the world in the
short length of an evening. Its straight
educ:tional value is tremendous. \

way of catxying on various kinds of
agricultural work can make clear in
