Iu view of these requirements, the
University of Nebraska oilers in its sum
mer school, June li to July 33, a course
in agriculture especially arranged lor
This course includes lectures and reci
tations upon such subjects as the
formation and physical properties of soils
the melhodsof tillage to conserve mois
ture in soils, and topics dealing with
plant growth with special reference lo
farm crops. The class work will be
illustrated by simple laboratory experi
ments which can be performed in any
school. Attention will also be given to
subjects pertaining to the breeds of live
stock, annual nutrition, etc.
This course has the endorsement of
: he Slate Superintendents interviewed
express a willingness to accept University
credits in agriculture without requiring
an examination in that subject when
cerl ideates are applied for.
The sin cess of the present movement
introducing the elements of agriculture
into the common schools will depend
upon tho lilness of teachers for carrying
