  Agriculture must be made more articulate. To render the greatest service
the
technically trained worker must use the printed page. The ability to write
simply and
understandably is invaluable to the teacher, the extension worker, and the
farmer.
Selling and advertising are important in the neglected half of farming-the
business side.
More and more farmers are coming to appreciate the need for salesmanship,
sales let-
ter writing, effective classified and display advertisement, and systematic
sales cam-
paigns.
