IN THAT TERRIBLE STATE!
The old-fashioned country
school fitted the children to be
clerks and bookkeepers. Then
the country people wondered
why the country crowd went to
the cities where the clerk and
bookkeeping jobs were to be had.
In North Dakota, however, our
schools have added to their cur
riculum courses in agriculture
and dairying. Thus when the
country-bred boy finishes school
he is ready for either the city or
the farm, and nine times out of
ten he will elect to remain on the
farm.—HETTINGER (N. D.)
