Preceding a short discussion on
the present situation in Algeria,
President Biff Keyes presented

Ag Alfalfa Day
University faculty members who
will speak at the Alfalfa Research
Day, Oct. 8 on the Ag College
campus have been announced.
The event will begin at 9:30
a.m. in the College Activities build
ing. A luncheon will be held at
noon and a field trip to the Agron
omy Farm in the afternoon.
W. R. Kehr, U.S. Department
of Agriculture agronomist at the
University will preside over the
morning session and will present
a talk. He and W. L. Howe, USDA
entomologist, will report on spotted
alfalfa aphid research.
Other University faculty mem
bers who will speak include:
John Matsushima, associate pro
fessor of animal husbandry; R. L.
Ogden, assistant biochemical engi
neer; R. E. Green, assistant in
agronomy; E. M. Brouse, assistant
agronomist, D. G. Hanway, chair
man of the Agronomy Department;
and Dr. E. F. Frolik, associate
director of the Agricultural Experi
ment Station, who will preside over
cation is especially valuable now,
he said, because the nation's need
for young people with university
experience is steadily increasing.
Business and industry, the Chan
cellor said, are keenly aware that
the nation faces a shortage of
trained young people and that the
shortage will continue for several
years to come.
"Between now and 1965," he said
"our U.S. population of the work
ing age, 18 through 65, will in
crease only nine per-cent. Mean
while, the proportion under age 18
will increase 20 per cent and the
proportion over age 65 will in
crease 18 per cent."
These statistics make clear, he
said, that the nation must rely
heavily on the services of young
people and that those services
must be more efficient than in
the past if the national standard
of living is to continue its ad
vance. "At no time in its history has
the University been able to offer
a better opportunity for the stu
dent interested in higher educa
tion," Chancellor Hardin . said,
"and at no time has the future
depended more heavily on how
thouroughly a generation of young
people avail themselves of their
