r 1 The Jefferson ian A NEWSPAPER DEVOTED ENTIRELY TO THE INTERESTS OF JEFFERSON COUNTY Jefferson town, Jefferson County, Ky., Thursday, June 8, 191 1. Vol. 4. No. AGRICULTURE To Be Taught at Kentucky State University. Grand Opportunity Offered To Farmers, Dairymen, Horticulturists and Others. During the coming summer the College of Agriculture of the State University, like all other departments, is offering a short course. A majority of the states in the Union have provided for the teaching of agriculture in their schools and it is only a matter of a short time until While the Kentucky will follow. as prepared for the coming course season is especially adapted to the needs of teachers, it meets equally well the needs of the practical or prospective farmer. The outline of the work will probably be shaped much in accordance with that offered in thr short winter course, which exThe summer tends ten weeks. course, however, offers many advantages which the winter course cannot enjoy, such, for example, as visiting the growing crops on the experiment plots or at Elinendorf. Elmendorf is a stock farm owned by Mr. .1. B. Haygiu and is perhaps the finest farm iu the world, having besides its cropping interests the very best of all classes of live stock and also what is probably the finest dairy baru in the world. A year ago an arraugement was made by which the Agricultural College was given fall use of the Elmendorf Farm, the students of course being the ones ultimately to derive the benefits of This gives such an arrangement. to the Kentucky Agrifacilities cultural College which are enjoyed pnhaps by no other agricultural college in the country. The greenhouses, plots, farm and dairy of the College are of course at the service of the students and instruction in these lines of work constitutes a regular part of the course. Opportunity will be given for a certaiu degree of specialization, that is. a student may devote his particular attention to dairying, farm crops, poultry husbandry. horticulture, entomology, the sciences, or to live stock. Besides the regular work planned for the students in the Agricultural College as in other departments, a special lecture course has been arranged, the lectures to take place twice weekly. These are all of a nature and of general and specific interest to students in any department of the University. A majority of the people in Kentucky are engaged in agriculture of some form, hence it seems suitable that the Agricultural College should strive to meet the demands of this large class of people in the most effective way. This it seems should be done through the teachers and non-technic- al practical farmers of the state who can put into operation the teachings of the agricultural College. The summer course will bet:in on June sixth and will extend to July twenty-eight- . On arrival in the city students can report immediately to the college of Agriculture where a list of boarding places will be on hand from which they can select. A special appropriation has been made to mert (he expenses of this course and no pains will be spared to make it of such. a nature as to satisfy the demands of teachers anil tanners. In nearly every county in the .Stale nn effort has been Bade to form an agricultural club among the boys, and the success of such an enterprise in the counties where it was tried last year was phenomenal. From such activity the school will naturally become the agricultural improvement center, and with a trained man or woman in each school its value will be greatly extended. Hence we feel that by providing For this summer course in agriculture we will he giving tin- nos1 direct benefit possible to Kentucky agricul- ture. First Communion at St Elizabeth's.

Appropriations amounting to several thousands of dollars were made at a recent meeting of the Jefferson County Board of Education tor re pairing and building new schools in Jefferson county this year. Among the schoo1. buildings that will be erected will be one at Seatonville, about five miles from Jeffersontown. It is said that a'very desirable site has been selected and that the work on the new structure will start at an early date. New schools will also be built at Orell and Kusrnosdale and at other points in the county. The members of the board passed a resolution calling for an appropriation of $1,500 for the improvement of the school building at Middletown. There is a suit in court now over the question as to a graded school at Middletown. an election for which was held M ay 13. As the board passed the appropriation resolution after this date, it is claimed, that this school will not receive the $1,500 in case the court decides in favor of the graded school. An appropriation has been made for the improvement of the Jeffersontown district school, and the trustee. Prof. R. H. Snively, informed The Jeffersonian that an additional room would be built and other repairs made, Contracts for the work will be let as soon as the specifications are completed. The Calvary school-hous- e will also be improved. V 1911.
