            A CHALLENGE FROM THE FARM
                           By T. L. BEWICK
              College of Agriculture, University of Wisconsin.
     The greatest need on the farm today is not pure bred livestock nor
pedigreed grains, both of which are desirable and usually indicative of the
successful farmer. But the most important thing is business management-
or the man who can handle the farm in a businesslike way. What do you
mean-the farmer a business man? Yes, he must be, in the future, and a real
business man at that with big business to attend to. With the present high
price
of land, meaning a large capital invested, an increasing cost of operation
and
a slow turn-over of his investment, it is necessary that more and more the
farmer become in reality a business man.
       THE AMERICAN BOY AN EMBRYO BUSINESS MAN
     There is nothing more attractive to the average American boy than a
business proposition, and he doesn't always wait until finishing his education
before making a decision on what that business is to be. Most boys have their
minds made up early in life though many do not eventually follow the line
first chosen because of circumstances or surroundings which lead them in
other directions. To have an ambition to accomplish something or be someone
of importance is a characteristic most commendable. But in order to be a
success in your chosen profession one needs all the training and experience
he
can get early in life. The important thing then, is to select your vocation
care-
fully so that it will not be necessary to change later in life.
