AGRICULTURE AND HORTICULTURE Act No315 Provides that Ele mentary Agriculture and Horticulture must be Taught in Public Schools Act No. 315 passed by the General assembly of 1909 pro vides that Elementary Agricul ture and Horticulture must be taught in all the public schools. This act became effective ten months after its passage, which made it operative the last day of March 1910. Other sections of the school law require that all teachers in 1 the public schools shall* pass an J approved examination on every subject they are required to teach. Therefore, the law add ing this new subject to the com mon school course has the effect of adding this subject to the list upon which teachers must be examined. State Superintendent Cook has advised the County Examiner to require all teachers to pass an examination on Elementary Agriculture and Horticulture during the June Institutes, the examination to be based on the outline in the Institute Manuals.
