At the recent meeting of the Na

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

and study the construction and opera

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.
Whenever this work has been thorofy
mastered the men are transferred

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

regular garage is maintained and
work is done on cars in the usu$I

charge for the work and nothing is
guaranteed. However, the quality of
wor k that has been done has been

In the electrical department the
men are required to dissemble and
rebuild magnetos, starting motors,
generators, voltage regulators, stor

with the electrical systems used on

The general mechanics department
gives instruction and practice in tin

In the radio school the men learn

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.

Mr. R. H. Musser, who has been

April, 1917, was promoted to the po

Mr. Musser's energetic
leadership and experience will be of

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
