Colorado School Of Agriculture, Attract* National Attention The new school started four years ago by the State Board of Agricul ture for farm boys and girls, has just closed a banner year with an at tendance of 365 from all parts of the State. The School Is held at the Ag ricultural College and runs for six months, closing in April thus en abling students to remain at home for the fall work and returning in time for spring work. Students are admitted who have completed the eighth grade. Prac tical courses are offered in Agricul ture, Mechanical Arts, and Home Economics. Theordinary high school is little more than a preparatory course for College and offers little of value to the country boy who does not expect to attend t College, and many who are not attracted to such academic work are taking great in terest in studying stock judging, farm machinery, electricity, blacksmithing. carpentry, budding, spraying and grafting. Girls are attracted to courses in cookery, dressmaking, home improve ment and laundry. They find great joy in becoming competent to go home and do dressmaking for themselves and the entire family, or to prepare appetizing meals at low cost, to fur nish a home at the least expense or care for the sick. The unprecedented growth and pro sperity of the School have attracted national attention, and Principal Netherton has deceived offers to go to larger institutions but has just an nounced liis intention to remain with the Colorado Institution another year.
