Owing to ill- ness Mr. Johnson was unable to com- plete his course at the university un- til 1909, at which tihmue Ihe received the degree if Bahelor of Science in Agriculture, and was made Assistant in Horticulture. Mr. Johnson's work in the Horticultural Department has been given almost entirely to tobacco experimental and breeding work. This branch of agriculture has been placed under the supervision of the Horticultural Department and Mr. Johnson's time is very largely devot- ed to this line of work. During the past two years lie has been develop- ing improved strains of the Wiscon- sin grown Connecticut-Havana which has been disseminated so widely by the station. lie also has charge of the investiiational work and exten- ,ion i \I Jý ill j Iut h 'i i cultlii , DR.c (0. lltTLE-;R. lDr. 0).
