            THE USE OF MORE MILK AND MILK PRODUCTS for the promotion of
5      health especially among children is the object of the milk cam-
       paigns conducted in various parts of the state, Wisconsin's
       eleventh milk campaign is scheduled for Monroe County during the
       week of April 30 - May 5. The work will be done by Extension
       workers from the Department of Home Economics in cooperation with
       County Agent Liddle and workers from the U. S. Department of
       Agriculture.
            "CZECHOSLOVAKIA IS AMONG THE FIRST of the Central European
       countries to restore in considerable measure its pre-war status
       as an agricultural producer," says Dr. B. Sykora of Prague, who
       is spending three weeks at the College. Dr. Sykora is to be
       Minister of Health in the new republic and is studying under a
       fellowship grant of the International Health Board of the Rocke-
       feller Foundation.
            THE HOLSTEIN FRIESIAN ASSOCIATION OF X ERICA awards annual-
       ly a 40'0 scholarship to the best student judge of dairy cattle,
       allowing him to select the institution in which he desires to
       study. 1sir. I. VI. Rupel, a se-nior student in the University of
       Illinois, to whom this prize was awarded for the next year, has
       selected this College for his graduate work in the field of
       genetics and nutrition.
            WISCONSIN AGRICULTURAL COLLEGE-TRAINED GRADUATES HAVE CHARGE
S      of 77 out of the 141 cow testing associations in this state.
       Sixty-four of these men are Short Course graduates; 11, Middle
       Course; and 2, Long Course. Forty-five more testers have had
       more or less training in the Short Course. All of the 141, ex-
       cept 19, have had some training at this College. Mr. Cramer is
       now advertising for 15 more men at $75 a month and board and
       lodging to push this work harder than ever. The special train-
       ing given in the Short Course for this group of young farmer boys
       affords an especially desirable outlet for such students to se-
       cure a most valuable experience in livestock feeding and manage-
       ment.
            THE BACTERIOLOGICAL DEPARTMENIT A.S ALHEADY RECEIVED orders
       for 2,200 alfalfa cultures, 1,130 cultures for clover, and nearly
       400 cultures for other legumes. The use of cultures for clovers
       is growing rapidly in spite of the fact that this legume is so
       well established in the state. The rapid application of this
       scientific method of seed inoculation for legumes indicates how
       much more quickly scientific methods are now made use of by the
       farmers than in earlier years.
            The 'Ia. Larsen Canning Company of Green Bay reported recent-
      ly their results on carefully compared field plots of inoculated
      and uninoculated canning peas.  During the growing season there
      was not much,'apparent difference but, on harvesting, the yield of
S    shelled peas on the inoculated five-acre field was over 20 per cent
      greater than that of the uninoculated field.   This firm plans to
      inoculate 1,000 acres this year.
