The Division of Extension has been an active Integral and organized pari of the University since 1014 and there Is probably no force that Is of so wide a benxjflt or Is giving greater returns to more people of the state than this organization with Its corps of able and effleient men and women agents and specialists. Rural progress In Tennessee is writ ten In every line of the annual report of the Division prepared by Charles A. KefTer, director. It Is the purpose of the extension service to carry directly to the farms and the homes of the country and secure the adoption in practice of the best available ' Infor mation regarding agriculture and home economics thru county agents, who deal with farm problems; home demonstration agents who deal with the problems of the home; club lead-' ers who carry on work with young people, and specialists In the various brunches of agriculture and home eco nomics. - The charge sometimes made that the countyagent Is a "white collar farmer," meaning that he does not get out among the fanners In the field, but spends most of his time in the office, can not be held against Tennessee agents. The annual report shows that 75 per cent of their time was spent In the field and only 25 per cent In their offices. Statistics are not always Interesting, but the following, showing the accomplishments of the agents, will convince the most skeptical thnt county agents' worli Is worth while: In performing their duties of tho year the agents visited 9,858 demon strators, 6.364 co-operators, 16,337 farmers not directly co-operating with them, 4,3K) business men, 6,777 boys' club members, making a total number of "visits by them 43,627. They trav eled 276,578 miles ; had 22,882 personal calls, 17,034 calls by telephone and as sisted In 3,313 farmers' meetings which werer held under their auspices or Di vision of Extension. They addressed 4.7S3 meetings, with a total attendance of approximately 300,000 and conduct ed 602 field meetings, with the total attendance of 11,957. They wrote 27,123 ofliciiil letters,"prepared for pub lications 2,0-15 articles, sent out 400,000 circular letters inkI distributed 00,255 United States Department of Agricul ture bulletins, 25,138 bulletins or cir culars for the State College of Agri culture and the Division of Extension and visited 2,321 schools to Interest them in agricultural work. More than 6,830 farmers are now practicing fall plowing-; 4,580 selecting seed and 2,305 are growing improved seed for sale. As evidence that this work Is of money value to the fanner, enabling him by the improved methods put Into practice to pay off mortgages and open bunk accounts, agents report that over 000 farmers have opened bank ac counts for the first time since begin ning demonstration work, and l,08f have been able to Increase their bank deposit. Store than 1,000 farmers have paid off their mortgages on their farms since starting demonstration Work and 68 per cent of the farmers co-operating with the agents are de creasing their. Indebtedness, 65 .per cent are showing Increased Interest in agricultural meetings find 66 per cent are showing n desire to study the farm business and progress. Labor saving devises have been placed in 5-10 homes of co-operators and demonstrators as result of agents' work. Some of tho more noticeable effects of fanners, homes and family as resulting from the work of the agents Is the building of better homes, barns, breeding of better livestock, attendance at fairs, short courses and conventions, taking of more papers and magazines, pur chase of automobiles, improved roads, installing of water and light systems in the home and providing of home amusement. Some of- the outstanding pieces of work done by the agents demonstrates the value of the work. The 7,611 acres of com grown under methods advocated by county agents In 1919 produced an average of 46 Bushels per acre ; the average yield in these same counties was 24 bushels per acre, Which shows that the yield was practically doubled due to demon stration methods. This applies equal ly to cotton, tobacco and small grain. The agents Influenced 874 farmers to select seed corn in the fall for next year's crop f amount of seed being se lected amounting ' to 9,373 bushels. They directly influenced 4,093 and in directly 8,983 farmers to use better methods In growing corn. The tvork done with livestock Is also convincing, agents reporting 1,431 men owning piire-bredlvesfock. Thsy at- steted !n" placing 1M community sires and 231 buyers of pure-bred Ufetfook. More than 800 brood mares were brought into comities" due to the ln ifluence of the agents. Twenty pure hrt,1 stallions hnd 14 nure-bred jack have been placed in counties sine demonstration work was started. They have influenced the farmers of their county to purchase 64 pure-bred dairy bulls and 299 dairy cows or heifers in twenty-four counties. Agents report 2,725 cows tested at their Instance, and 1,100 fanners have been induced to feed a "better balanced ration to their stock. Ovtr 5,000 head of beef cattle h ive been fed and cared for according to methods advocated by agents. Forty agents report 864 pure-bred boars and 1,216 pure-bred sows or gilts brought into their counties due to their influence and 489 farmers have started new herds. Twenty agents report 168 pure-bred rams, 242 ewes and 6,307 grade ewes brought into their counties for breed ing purposes due to their Influence and 4,905 head of sheep were cared for ac cording to methods advocated by the agents. Marketing of farm products eo-o-eratlvely is becoming one of the big features of extension work, and the agents are doing splendid work along this line. Farmers of Tennessee re ceived $5,909.72 more for their wool by marketing co-operatively under the direction of county agents than they would have received had they followed the usual practice of selling. The agents assisted farmers In marketing $1,207,954.25 worth of livestock and crops nnd In buying fertilizers at a saving of $809,623.95 to the farmers in 1919. The home demonstration agents were Just as active as the county agri cultural agents and they accomplished some wonderful things as shown by the few Instances given here. Home demonstration agents report 400 girls' clubs holding regular meetings with an attendance of 25,942. Women's clubs holding regulnr meetings 250 with an attendance of 22,407. Community ac tivities are being developed in the counties as a result of this work. The agents visited 55,200 homes, distrib uted 123,520 bulletins, held 0,917 meet ings and traveled 185,780 miles. The estimated attendance at meetings held is 344,392. Two hundred and forty seven girls paid all or a part of their school expenses with money earned In club work. The total value of food put up under the direction of the agents amounted to $711,901. ' DAIRYING NOW BIG PAYING INDUSTRY - IN MANYJGUNTIES Is Encouraging Sign of Prog ress In Tennessee Farming Many Creameries Are Being Operated One encouraging sign of progress In Tennessee farming is the notable in crease In creameries and In dairy In dustry generally within the past few years. The State Dairy Commissioner, W. T. Magruder, Jr., reports that from twelve creameries In Tennessee on January 1, 1919, the creameries have grown to twenty-nine now in operation and ail doing a . good business. On January 1, 1919, there were only twenty-four cream buying stations In Ten nessee, There are now 250. There are eighty-four lice.nsed ice cream plants, eight cheese factories, ten city milk plants, five of these having been started in the 'pnst two years. For the year 1916 the state manu factured 1,141,922 pounds o creamery butter. " For the year 1917 the state manufac tured 1,006,713 pounds of creamery butter. For the year 1918 the state manufac tured 2,162400 pounds of creamery butter. For the year 1919 the state manufac tured 8,932,020 pounds of creamery butter. For 1920 Hie state will manufacture over 6,000,000 pounds. For 1918 the cheese factories manu factured 39,902 pounds of cheddor cheese. For 1919 the cheese factories mnnu factured9,202 pounds of cheddr cheese. For 1920 the cheese factories will manufacture about 125,000 pounds. There is no region better suited for this manner of industry than tho cen tral basin of Tennessee, and it can bo profitably conducted in all parts of the state. The industry has taken on an Impetus that promises to develop a greater growth In the future. It will add much to. the agricultural wealth of the state. Three Creameries Make Fine Records, April 11, 1019,' to October, 1920, the Robertson County Creamery paid $54, 800.48 to the farmers for cream. This Is unusually well for a county situ ated as Robertson is, in the tobacco section where dairy interests are low. The creamery made 107,691 pounds of butter during the time mentioned. County Agent Jones has done excellent dairy work in his county. The Bedford Co-operative Creitmery during Its first year of operation made 153.447 pounds of butter. The cream ery Is going to put In a refrigerating system, which Is a sign of its pro gress. They will be enabled by this to handle more business and the qual ity of the hotter will be improved.
