     AMONG THE NEASURES ENACTED IN THE 56th SESSION OF THE WISCONSIN LEGISLATURE,
xhich adjourned on July 14, the following are probably of most interest to
agri-
culture and to men of this college:
     A bill which provides an appropriation of $5,000 for new buildings at
the
iancock. Branch Experiment Station.
     A joint resolution directing the State Board of Control to utilize the
facil-
ities offered by the College of Agriculture in assisting the different superinten-
dents of state and county institutional farms in improving the condition
and pro-
duction of the state farms. This measure does not apply to the work on those
farms
.s planned for the present year, which will allow sufficient time to work
out a
program.
     The Price so called "home ruldebill which gives the county boards
final
Dower to reject or accept state appointed county officials, such as county
agents
and county health nurses. This does not affect the present practice of the
college
in the administration of county agent work.
     A bill which makes possible the appointment of an agricultural agent
for
Milwaukee county.
     A bill that provides for an annual appropriation of $255,000 for area
work,
$70,000 for accredited herds, $150,000 for general testing, and $75,000 for
operating expenscs--a total of $555,000 for the eradication of bovine tuberculosis.
This measure takes the place of the Schumann bill which called for a total
appro-
priation of '1,000,000.
     An eriergcncy appropriation bill to provide a fund of $60,000 to cover
the
T A testing of cattle for interstate shipment to permit this work to continue
-.hep funds for it wore exhausted early in 1923.
     A bill by-Assonblyr.an Froehoff which prohibits the use of dairy terms
or
naiws in the advertising of substitute products.
     A bill which makes compulsory the pastourization of all dairy by-products
before they leave the factory. It places the responsibility for this work
dircet-
ly upon tbe factory owners and is a part of the T B eradication program.
     A bill abolishing "daylight saving" in Wisconsin.
     A bill to increase the Live Stock Sanitary BoaAt frorm five to seven
eorbers
