In order to provide for this the University will offer at the begin liing of the next quarter, opening Jan uary 6th, beginning courses in many departments, placed on preparation for the recon struction era now at hand. Many former students now in the camps Rre planning to return to the uni <Nsrsity. "Military training will be under the Iwovisions of the Reserve Officers' Training Corps which will provide compulsory work for the first two years and opportuhity to qualify in the upper classes for officers' com missions. Although details are not yet worked out, it is probable that the War Department will provide compensation for all members of the | Emphasis will be Corps, with generous provision for equipment.'' tm tWO WEEKS' COURSE ON TRACTORS Agricultural Engineering Depart ment Assisted by Factory Men. At the recent meeting of the Na tional Implement Association in Chi cago the question of "Education in Tractors" was discussed, and Junius f. Cook, Assistant Secretary of Agri coltore, said: "The more the farmer stillzes the sources of knowledge of tractors the more successful he will he with his machine." Daring the coming season there will he 1600 to 2000 machines in use in Idaho. If these men know how to properly adjust and care for their machines it will increase the amount of crops saved and will prolong the Ute of their tractors. An operator who is not able to make adjustments his machine may lose hours or a v eu days of valuable time in the bnsy season. A knowledge of how to go about to make the proper ad justment may save him^pll this loss. Come to school and make these ad justments under the direction of men acquainted with these machines. /If yea are a prospective buyer, come and study the construction and opera tion of different makes of machines. Monday, January 27, is enrollment day and Friday, February 7, will close the course. Bring your cover alls and be ready to get into the grease. You will learn to do by doing. If you desire to enroll in the Tractor Short Course, Jan. 27-Feb. 7, notify J. C. Wooley, Ag. Eng. Dept., U. of I., Moscow, Ida., stating the type of tractor you wish to become acquaint ed with. A,. EXTENSION CONFERENCE AT THE UNIVERSITY - The Annual Conference of all work ers of the University of Idaho Exten scion Division will be held at Moscow, January 27-February 1. This week is the one prior to the dates selected for the Annual Farmers and House keepers' Week. This conference, which will necessi tate the presence at the University of all extension workers in agriculture and home economics, will also have in attendance the agricultural instruc tion force, agricultural experiment' station workers and home economics instructors of the University, meeting has for its purpose unifica tion of University effort in agricul ture and home economics on the The campus at Moscow and wherever in Idaho work is done by members of extension staff, or by experimental farm superintendents. Plans and pro gram of work for 1919 will be given first consideration. ^ PRACTICAL COURSE GIVEN VOCATIONAL MEN OF S.A.T.C. ; Training Valuable After Returning • Home, i One half hour each day is devoted to lecture work and six hours to shop work in the Vocational School of the University of Idaho, so that the stu dents learn by "doing" rather than from the textbook without the prac tice. In the automobile school the men are classified at enrollment time ac cording to the "amount of experience they have had. Those who have had no experience are placed in the rear axle and chassis department where they study different types of frames, springs, and rear axles. They must become thoroly acquainted with four standard makes of rear axles so that they can build them up and adjust them. Steering gear adjustments and wheel alignments also are given special attention. Transmission, as sembly and adjustment also come In for consideration in this department. is Whenever this work has been thorofy mastered the men are transferred j | and adjust them on the motor, the motor department. Here the work consists of assembling motors from the parts, possibly pouring and scrap ing the bearings, fitting piston rings, threading valves and finally timing the motor and testing it out on the block. Students are required to dip semble a number of carbureters, study and assemble, and then install When a man has satisfied the in structor in this department he is then ready for the public service depart- ment or the electrical department. At the beginning the men who have the broader knowledge of cars and their care are placed in these two de partments. In the public service department a regular garage is maintained and work is done on cars in the usu$I way. The shop is equipped with a reboring machine and the foundry in connection makes possible the instal lation of new pistons. There is no charge for the work and nothing is guaranteed. However, the quality of wor k that has been done has been up to standard with very few exceptions. In the electrical department the men are required to dissemble and rebuild magnetos, starting motors, generators, voltage regulators, stor age batteries, and should in the two months time become thoroly familiar with the electrical systems used on the modern car. The general mechanics department gives instruction and practice in tin and sheet metal work, blacksmithing, carpentry, and lathe work and ma chine shop practice. In the radio school the men learn to send and receive messages at a certain required speed, and they also must be able to send and receive by th government system of signalling. In all, the University of Idaho Vo cational School has trained 600 men for tba government, distributed as follows: 210 In auto mechanics un der the Agricultural Engineering De partment; 170 in general mechanics, under the Mechanical Engineering De partm e nt and 120 in the radio work, under the Electrical Engineer ing Department. Thua has the University of Idaho served the Government in time of need. Jhe Vocational School, if con tinued, Éould render valuable service in time of peace. i Eastman on I. C. Commission. WASHINGTON.—Joseph B. East man of Massachusetts has been, chosen by President Wilson to succeed George W. Anderson as a member of the in terstate commerce commission. | AGRICULTURAL MEETINGS AT TWIN FALLS sociations will have separate sessions with certain joint sessions of more j gefteral interest. Seed growers, irri gation men, grain growers, dairymen and producers of livestock are among those who will be particularly bene fitted. A number of the members of the University's Extension Division will take part in the Twin Falls pro grams. vited from the University's staff at Moscow are President E. H. Lindley, E. J. Iddings, dean of agriculture, John C. Wooley, professor of agricul tural engineering, and H. W. Hul bert, assistant professor of farm crops. Twin Falls is preparing to entertain a record crowd. The annual meetings of the Agri cultural and Irrigation Societies of Idaho will be held for this year at Twin Falls, January 13-16 inclusive. Each of the various societies and as Among those specially in SCHOOL OF PRACTICAL AGRI CULTURE SECOND TERM OPENS JANUARY 5 The winter term of the -School of Practical Agriculture will open Janu ary 6th. weeks. Beginning classes will be or ganized, and every effort made to accommodate students who have re cently been discharged from army training camps or who have been pre vented by unusual labor conditions from entering school earlier. Instruc tion will be offered in the follow ing subjects: Soils, crops, vegetable gardening farm machinery, livestock feeding, breeding, farm management, accounting, English, botany and farm machematics. Catalog and full particulars will be sent upon application to Principal C. B. Wilson, University of Idaho. The term lasts for ten HOCHBAUM LEAVES IDAHO GOES TO WIDER FIELD W. W. Hochbaum, County Agent Leader, has left farm bureau work in Idaho, having sent in his resigna tion to take effect December first. Mr. Hochbaum joins the Office of Extension Work, North and West, Washington, D. C., and is associated with the county agent section, of which Mr. W. A. Lloyd has charge, to help in the organisation of farm bureau work over the northern and western states. Mr. Hochbaum joined the Idaho ex tension force early in the game, and was one of the two county agents employed in Idaho in 1913. He began the work as county agent leader in 1914, when only three men were em ployed. Since then the Idaho system of farm bureaus has been developed until the state now has thirty-four couaty farm bureaus and thirty coun ties employing agents. Outside of Nezperce, Idaho, and Adams counties, the major part of Idaho's agricultural area is as a consequence now served with farm bureaus. The farm bureau organization of Idaho ranking with the best of Am erica, remains a tribute to Mr. Hoch baum's ability and efficiency in or ganization work. Assistant State Leader, F. L. Wil liams is acting as state leader. EXTENSION WORKERS ASSIST DURING FLU EPIDEMIC During the period that meetings could not be held because of the quar antine, many of the home demonstra tion agents connected with the Ex tension Division of the University rendered valuable service to their communities. Miss Dorothy Taylor, district home demonstration agent, located at Mos cow, acted as night nurse in the large S. A. T. C. hospital at the University. Mrs. Lillian Miller, city worker, at Pocatello, organized and managed a I community kitchen in which meals were prepared and sent to families who could not prepare them on ac count of sickness. As many as 171 meals a day were served from this kitchen. Miss Lela Bullock, home demonstra tion agent of Bonneville county, also established a community kitchen and in co-operation with Mr. Macbeth, the labor specialist, succeeded in placing over 80 nurses in homes where no other help could be obtained. State Leader Amy Kelly and Mrs. Alpha Holt, home demonstration agent at large, who are located at Boise, assisted at St. Luke's hospital during the week when help was need ed so desperately. in 1917. R. H. MUSSER BECOMES ASSISTANT STATE LEADER Mr. R. H. Musser, who has been county agent of Canyon county since April, 1917, was promoted to the po sition of Assistant County Agent Leader, November 1, 1918. During Mr. Musser's term of service as coun ty agent, the Canyon County Farm Bureau has made great strides, in creasing the membership from six hundred forty to eight hundred twen ty-five, in spite of the fact that Pay ette county, with two hundred mem bers, was carved out of the county Mr. Musser's energetic leadership and experience will be of great service now in the state-wide development of farm bureaus. IDEALS Alvin H. Sanders, editor of the Breeders' Gazette, feels that there are things in farm life of far more im portance than money. He recently expressed this view in the following words: "The things of the spirit are the true treasures of existence. Money-getting is all right, pursued by honest rational methods, but he who builds for the general welfare rather than exclusively for himself is acquir ing that which cannot be taken away. "We urge farmers always to im prove their places and their livestock, not altogether for the purpose of bet tering themselves and families in a purely material sense, but because of the sweetening, refining influences of right environment." *a EXPERIMENTS WITH SLICK SPOTS" Soils .Worker Undertakes Important Work. E. B. Hitchcock, extension specialist and research worker, is experimenting with special treatments to overcome the "slick spots" in the irrigated dis tricts of the state. These experiments are conducted in cooperation with farmers in Ada, Canyon, Gem, Pay ette, and Washington counties. All of the farmers visited showed a great desire to cooperate in this work, as they realize the necessity of overcom ing this unfavorable condition. These areas are staked off and each given a different treatment, such as applying manure or strawand deep plowing; top dressing with manure, subsoiling, blasting with dynamite; and fall and spring plowing. Accurate yields are taken of the crops growing on treated areas to be compared with those from untreated areas to determine the value of such treatments. Such experiments and demonstra tions are of great benefit to the farm ers as they are carried out under actual farm conditions and the farmer can see the effects from the different methods so that he will be able to follow the one best suited to his con ditions. TV Five carloads of Fremont county certified potato seed were sold at $2.50 per cwt. Market potatoes have • 4 been selling at $1.25 to $1.50 per cwt. Thru the farm bureau, in co operation with Mr. E. R. Bennett, Extension Horticulturist, more seed is being certified.
