TWO WINTERS OF TRAINING PAY The young men who go to the Short Course for the two winters of training are practically always hard at work on the farms for the balance of the year. While they may be slow at first to grasp all that the course may mean, or to gain all that is possible to gain from it, still most of these young men, I think, realize that this is the supreme opportunity of life, and few of them let anything divert their attention for these four- teen weeks from the main object of gaining all possible from the work.

One thing that makes the Short Course appeal is the fact that the young men taking the course go back to the home farm and make good. Of course, they are often ridiculed at first, but that is the common lot of anyone who wishes to blaze new trails. These young men have become leaders in Wiscon- sin agriculture and in practically every line. If you will take up the directory of the Wisconsin Live Stock Breeders' Association, and check off the names of the men who are today Wisconsin's leading breeders of pure bred live stock-many of them national leaders in this line- you will find that at least nine-tenths of them arW graduates of the University of Wisconsin Short Course.
