The first enrollment in the Better Sires campaign to be received from the insular possessions has just been for warded to the United States Depart ment of Agriculture from Porto Rico. The enrollment blank, was sent by the director of the Porto Rico Experiment Station, and was from a poultry raiser In Luquillo. The new member has dis posed of 28 head of scrub poultry and Is now making arrangements through the department, for the shipment ol 2 purebred cocks and 20 purebred hens. This eorollemnt marks the beginning in the insular possessions of a move ment which has created much interest and which has done much to improve the live-stock Intersts in the United States. It also may open a new market, the department specialists say, for export trade in purebred stock of all classes. -o GOVERNMENT AIDING STATE FARM MANAGEMENT BUREAUS Several of the States, with the aid of the TJnited States Department of Agriculture, are establishing farm management departments. Efforts are in progress to work out a system of co-o|>erntion under which a muximun amount of research work can be done with an equitable division of expenses between the Federal and State Govern ments. The Colleges of Agriculture in Ar kansas and Mississippi have establish ed departments of farm management and home economics. Every effort is being made by these departments, and in other States by the United States Department of Agriculture co-operat ing with the State colleges, to assist farmers in their problems of manage ment. This is accomplished by distri bution of farm uccount books, supple mented by surveys, lectures, bulletins, j and circular letters. Au Important phase of this work is the training of county agents and other instrumentalities to bring to farmers in terms of their own business the principles of efficient organization and management. Instruction is given to groups rather than Individuals. Al though this program has not been put in full operation in some States, the demonstrators in 28 Commonwealths co-operating with the department dur ing the last year, have worked with more than 52,000 grouped farmers. Business men, as well as farmers are becoming more interested in farm management problems, as the result the department specialists say, ol economic conditions brought about bj tlie war. This, together with the need for farm accounts made necessary bj the income-tax law, is making farn management work one of the most lm portant extension projects. -o The words “peace and victory” wil: have a holier meaning when you have paid your income tax. - —w ~ ~ DRIFT TO CITIES STUDIED IN FARMING COMMUNITIES In order to throw more light on the important problem of the drift of popu lation from rural sections to cities, and to determine. If possible, the cause and remedy, the United States Depart ment of Agriculture during the Uu-t year has made a study of one farm community each in New York, Mary land, and West Virginia, in co-opera tion witht the colleges of agriculture. The type of study has been historic.1 and analytical, covering the last 100 years. The special questions at Issue in tills community analysis are the “migration of young people from the farms to the town and city;” “ the remedy for overmigratlou“ the influence of farm communities upon national life.” The results of their studies will be published during the ensuing year. The variations in social life In com munities which are founded upon different types of agriculture are being studied in dairy, grain, and truck farming localities. Whether the people differ according to the type- of tann ing. and, If so, In what respect they and their Institutions vary, are the ! questions at Issue. Our Hobby Is Good A| — n . ..
