gestions to help the rural
public school teacher in lead
ing his or her pupils to see
the direct relation between
home life and their school
'studies are contained in a
jn$w publication of the De
partment of Agriculture.
This bulletin, No. 281, eng tit
Jed "Correlating Agriculture
With the Public School Sub
jects in the Northern States"
contains a plan of work ex
tending from September
through the fall, winter and
spring to the end of June.
Under this plan each pupil
is encouraged to undertake
some home project; that is to
say, some work at home that,
will extend through a whole
season, .will be connected
with the instruction in agri
culture which the pupil re
ceives at school, and a record
of the results which will be
faithfully kept and turned in
to the teacher at the conclu
sion of the project. At school
the pupils' exercises in arith
metic, spelling, English, geo
graohy, etc., are so directed
that the value of these sub
jects in practical life is made
clear. For example, in the
language lessons, the pupil
may be asked to write out
the method which he used in
testing milk with a Babcock
tester, special emphasis be
ing placed upon the need for
making the meaning abso
lutely clear. In the same
way the records obtained
from cow testing may be used
as exercises in arithmetic and

from American manufacture- -seeking

"HANDS OFF OF MEXIQO"
WASHINGTON, I). C, Aug. 17.
Carranza's representatives in Wash
ington expect him to send unyielding
response to the Pan-American appeal
addressed to the military and civil
leaders in Mexico. They think he will
adhere to the position he took at the
time of the Niagara Falls mediation
conference last summer, that Mexican
intervention by other nations would
be unwelcome to the Mexican people.
The replies to the appeal will not be
made public until the Latin-American
diplomats have another conference
with Secretary Lansing.
According to some of his friends,
Carranza in his reply will assert that
peace has already been established
throughout much of Mexico by his ar
mies; that the government of which
he is the head is constitutional and
in full control of the territory, and
upon transferring his capital- from
Vera Cruz to Mexico City within a few
weeks he will agree to confer with alb
