If I aMn worth anything to this state, as the head of the Agri- 
cultural College, I ought to look ahead and see these things, and 
help you realize them. If I don't aee correctly, the I ought to 
be put out, or if I make any statements that lead you to believe 
wrong. I hope the business men here will think of thee thing& 
I hope that the young men who are thinking of soue outlet for 
their little capital and their energies will think of these things 
and take them seriously. Today at our Dairy School at Madi- 
son we have three calls for chi a  to one we can supply. 
I wish we had more young men down there, taking the training 
to be sent out to the factories and I wish there were more fac- 
tories calling for such men. R1emnb, again, that inside of 
three or four years the United States will actury not be pro- 
ducing enough cheese to supply its own demands, and we Diill 
have to import cheese from Canada to supply the demand, un- 
less Wisconsin takes it to heart and tames advantage of it, as she 
ought to. 
Mr. Clark: It seems to me Governor Hoard has hit pretty 
near the mark in regard to our cheese making industry. The 
use of milk in our cities has crowded the creamenries fromx many 
sections further back into the cheese making country of Wiscon- 
sin. Take Fond du LAc county, for instance; take the line of 
road running from Fond du Lac to Milwaukee and to moranad

our Dairy Board of Trade, and handling all the way from 200 
boxes, big 50-pound boxes. During the past year not one single 
box of cheese came from that section to our Dairy Board. The 
whole section has been covered by milkers and the result of the 
increased demand for butter has pushed the work further along 
into the cheese making section of Wisconsin. I am smre that 
there is a very bright outlook for cheese ialking in Wisconsin, 
because we have a better cheese making territory for full cream 
cheese than there is in the United States west of New York. 
--       Mr. Aderhold: What is the reason, Mr. Clark, that so many 
cheese factories changed over into creameries., 
Mr. Clark: I don't know that I can fully answer that ques- 
tion, but it seems to me that it is just here. We were contiguous 
to the district that was drained for milk for the cities, and be
