THE AGRICULTURAL PORTR;IT GA.LLTRY is being rapid'ly e;pandec. -Reently the Saddle and Sirloin Club of Chicago, through the kindness of our friend, Robert Ogilvie, presented the College with a life-size portrait of Professor Henry r.ade by Stuart sorm(, twenty odd years ago -when the Dean vrs in his early priue. This portrait was one of the first portraits to be hung in the Chi- cago gallery but was later rcplaccd by a subsequent painting. This oil painting is now hung in the office that was so long occupied by Professor Henry. On the occasion of Station Day twro additional portraitt will be added to the College gallery, both of which have been oexecuted by Orvid idyhoLn of Chi- cagoe The portrait of Professor R. A. I.oorc is to be given by the Wiseonsin Exporinent Association. Professor FUooro has been secretary of that organi- zation since its foundation in 1901. ThousanCs of youn- fari:ers in this and adjoining states have, through this organization, progressecd rapidly to the front rank as breeders and purveyors of pedigreed seeds and =rains of Lrany typos. For the portrait of Governor V..D. Hoard, ic, again ovo thanks to 1Ur. O- ilvio. Governor Hoard was onc of the pioncer leaders in llisc.nsin's dairy industry and one of the si;. foundcrs of the l.;isconsin State Dairyman's Asso- ciation. Ho served as president of the Northowestcrn Dairy-aan's Association and of the National Dairy Union, and Qstablished Hoard's Dairyi.,an, which is easily the world's leading dairy paper. As a tribute to his services and vision in the building of our dairy industry the r.=e.orial that bears his name was unveiled at this Colloec in February, 1922. The rapid expansion of this gallory of paintings raises a question cf prire importance -s to raore adequate housing of these collections with the photographic collections of those individuals who have boon tendrCred "Hono- rary Recognition in Agriculture" by the University. The Collego now! possesses an art nucleus that is of much historical value. INDIAN F.RlERS' IHSTITUTES have been successfully hold for several years. The Extension Service of the Collcfo recently cobporated with Supceintendcnt Allen in holding an institute for tho Ilenoriineo Indians in Shawano County and with Superintendent Balmer for the Chippowas at Lac du Flayboau. For the first tir.e woman's work was presented by lErs. Nollie Kedzie Jones. Jiuch interest vras manifested by the Indians in the discussion of farm topics, Indian interpreters were used to make cloar the various points, which resultcd in nany questions being asked rclating to the subjects under discussion. At Keshona, 150 were present, and at Lac du Flarmbeau, 350 at- tended on liay 22 and 400 on IPlay 23. Roquests for similar rieotings to bc hold next year have already been received by the CollogC. There is a growing intcrcst among a largo number of thc Indians ior the learning of batter ways of farming and a desire to accept the inioro miodcern ii.thods of the white men in the handling of their agricultural work. Fif- teen acres is thc avorago amtount of land cultivated by Indians who arc farml- ing at the I.enomince Reservation and 10 acres of those vwho are farrminr at the Lac du Flarmboau Reservation. The average amount of land under cultiva- tion by all Indians in the state is 15 acres.
