a real problem.  Li the hands of extension workers falls quite
logically the problem of helping to find a solution. Cooperatively,
farmers and extension workers, working together with a common goal
in mind can do much to attain the desired end.
     An appreciation of the fine work already done by Cournty Ex-
tension A."catz in St. C-roix county will come only when much of the
work already started is brought to a close and definite results
are seen.
     This report is being made in recognition of the first quarter
century of extension work in the United States. Due credit is ex-
tended to each of the men having played his part in this program.
Extension work is being conducted in St. Croix county through the
cooperation of county, state, and federal funds.
     The first Agricultural Committee, in 1917, consisted of
Richard Baker, chairman of the county board; H. A. Aune, county
superintendent of Schools; and George Oakes. The present County
Agricultural Agent is working under the direction of the County
Agricultural Committee of the County Board consisting of Cecil A.
Heebink, chairman of the county board; Ed Miller, chairman of the
Agricultural committee; Louis Draxler; Walter Karnes; and R. J.
Sorenson, county superintendent of schools. It is through the
fine cooperation of this and the other committees that Extension
Agents have enjoyed their work in St. Croix County.
