.Traces the-Devebpmcnt of the' Study
of Agriculture In Colleges Thinks
There Is Great Future for It.
Prof. W. N,- Hayes, assistant Hsccre
tnvy of tho Dopurtmouc of Agriculturo,
gavo a very iutcrcsling talk to tho.
many students pYesent nt. tho' convoca
tion exercises yesterday morning. His
general subject was tho "8tiuly of Ag
rlculture," and ho traced the develop-
.mont of tho study in the past fifty
years. Pie' said:
"Tho first appropriation oh tho part
of tho United States government for'
tho 'study of agriculture was In 1802,,
and sinco that tlmo thoro has bcon a
steady growth of government support
until now tho annual appropriation is
closo to flvo million dollars, which is
equal to tho combinod appropriations ' -of
all other governments. It is
through these appropriations and
those of tho various states Inat scien
tists havo become lnterestod In tho
work, nnd It Is to them that tho In- .
creasing interest In the study ls'duo.
"Although only half of those stu
dents of the western universities who
eomo from tho country return to a
farm life, this condition is by no means
discouraging. Tho systematic'' study ' -of
agriculturo "in universities has baen
only recently undertaken, and tho pro-" -
gross made Is really wonderful. This
work- Is growing sojrapidly that It will

until thostudy .wjll bo Introduced not
only into hlgluschools, but Into grado
schools as well, so that finally, -the stu
dent will.be engaged In that study
throughout lils.ontlro. schooljlfo. That .
tho study of agriculturo In tho lower
grades Is fcoslblo Is shown bythofact
that in previous ycars.oniy sonfors and ".
Juniors, In universities registered for
tho courses,but now freshmon' takQ
them regularly and find them not too :

"Ono of tho most Important parts of
tho study of agrlcultunTas now de
veloped is-tho oxporlment station. Tho

of tho finest I havo ovor seen and 6f
fers an opportunity for excellent
work. tZL " . ?:'
"During tho past few years, thero
has been a surprising Increase In tho
number of high schools' oTTerlng
courses in mechanic arts and in man
ual training, and it Is freely prophe
sied that this development will be even
greater In the near future. Thero Is
every reason to believe fthat the study
