.E-r -2- SIXTY-FIVE RURAL MINISTERS AND OTHER CHURCH WORKERS representing 11 states * and 9 denominations are in attendance at the second Annual Rural Church Con- ference now being held at this College. This is a 25 per cent increase over the number enrolled last year when this course was given for the first time. The number attending from the various states is as follows: Illinois 6, Iowa 2, Michigan 1, Mississippi 1, Nebraska 2, New Jersey 1, New York 4, South Dakota 2, Utah 1, Virginia 1, and Wisconsin 44. Of the denominations present, the Episcopal and the Methodist are repre- sented by 15 men each, the Congregational group has 13, the Presbyterian 12, and all others 10. THE TEACHERS OF VOCATIONAL AGRICULTURE in the high schools and county schools of agriculture in Wisconsin, who in former years met at Madison, will meet this year at Janesville High School, which has been one of the leaders in this work, and at the Milwaukee County School of Agriculture. The meeting at Janesville is scheduled for the week beginning July 16 and that at the Milwau- kee School of Agriculture for the week beginning July 23. F. W. DUFFEE of Agricultural Engineering is assuming the task of finding outside work for needy students who are desirous of earning their way in whole or in part while taking courses in the College of Agriculture. Requests for help along this line and suggestions as to possible openings for part time em- ployment may be sent to Mr. Duffee by staff members. It is desirable to have a number of openings for work at the beginning of the first semester. H. W. STEWART of Soils will devote a part of his time during the late S summer to attending county fairs with an agricultural exhibit in behalf of the Short Course, Suggestions as to the best means of handling this work may be sent to Mr. Stewart. THE FINAL SCHEDULE FOR SUMMER DISTRICT FIELD MEETS for County Agents as reported by K. L. Hatch is-as follows: ASHLAND - Court House - Tuesday, July 10 - 9:00 A. M. STEVENS POINT - Hotel Whiting - Thursday, July 12 - 9:00 A. M. AIERY - Hotel Amery - Tuesday, July 17 - 9:00 A. M. NEILLSVILLE - Cburt House - Friday, July 20 - 9:00 A. M. JANESVILLE Court House - Friday, July 27 - 9:30 A. M. MANITOWOC - Court House - Thursday, August 2 - 9:00 A. M. THE SUMMER SCHOOL ENROLLMENT in agricultural courses is about 300, which number is nearly the same as last year. In Homo Economics there is about a 30 per cent decrease from the session of a year ago. The classes in Institutional Administration are splendidly attended, 15 full time people representing seven states being enrolled. A study of the situation seems to indicate that the decrease in the number of people enrollod in Home Economics is due largely to the fact that the prc- requisites of the academic year are being held to in certain courses this sum- mer, which was not the case in previous summer sessions.
