Thrnughniii ihc foregoing rcciUlionflf the station's histor 1 / and accomplishments, scant rccognilion has Irccn accorded Ihe admimstralnrs al Moscow, who have now been replacffl. WilhiHit Iheir concern for the wishes and needs of Ihc IdaVi agricultural sc«i« and the center's stall, Ihe evenl.i hp recorded could not have happened. , These earthy, humble leaders respected Ihe good earth nd Ihe people who worked it. Most of them understood Ihe^ir- chileclureof simplicity and the law of parsimony. Wilh nnrc moncy - and (hey really should have had more - they crfjld have done belter, in retrospect, it woulil seem, however, Ihc lack of funds dirl no( prevent them from making the *st of what they had As a gii/y.ted. barrel-chested, bectle-hrmved. winler frozen, sumnu'r-si-nrched call tertian nf the iild West repeatedly has been heard to say: "Life ain't in hnldin' a good hand, but in playin' a poor one well." Previous .11! ministralnrs who seem In have possessed such ability In lie creative under difficult circumstances include Deans K .1 Iddings. I). II. TheopUus. and .latnc.s K. Kraus all nf w)imn were also directors if Ihe Idaho Agricultural Experiment .Station and of Ihe Agricultural Extension Service Detvirl- mcnl heads such as l)r. I.eif Verner, Dr. C W Ihnigerlnrd Dr. Calude Wakehni.l. Dr. Karl Klages. !)r ;cnrgr Wnnd- hury. and Dr. lluliert C. Manis, also seem worlliy of special mention. Many of Item al one time nr another themselves did research al Patina. The new adiniimlruior.s- al Moscow vim in vet v recent years have succeeded them are knnwlcdjallu, affable and articulate. They have polcntial leadership capabililies Onlv time can deter mint whether I hey can meet the challenges n'f their day as well as Ihe men previously mentioned Indeed no one in the area wauls them In do less well- people really wanl them In do heller. They should itu heller because Ihe'v have inherited aslets and facilities which Iheir predecessors worked a long I|rie to acquire. They will dn heller if they learn In listen ln;ll the people, including Ihe Parma staff. Many of Parma's scientists have scorned monetary advancement in order to live in Ihe rural atmosphere in which Ibey were originally engaged to do Iheir work They have stayed on al I'arma primarily because they love Ihe soil Ihe living things which grow Ihere. and Ihe close ramxirl llicv have wilh farm |xoplc. Most ul them would prefer In con- limie working mil at Hie College of Idaho as recently proposed by Ihe university administration - hut al short distances frori Iheir offices, their laboratories their plols and theirgrcmlmuses. Most of them prefer to do so because plant researa often is a round-lhe-clock activity; and they don'l feel Ihfy can operate economically if they are to he spending so much lime nn Ihe road. Most of I hem don't think Idaho can afford il. cither. Above all. i[ seems, i.s a pervasive disbelief in (he new philosophy thai research can best he |«rformcd by "more venturesome thinking" nf "critical masses" nf scientists huddled in a conference room nr confined to lalinratoi v ceils Such, some nf them will lell you. is Ihe European wav; anil the Kuro|iean plan, they say. has never solved agriciiHuril production in Ihe old World, Most nl I hem dislike, too. Ihe idea thai research mil admissible In learned scientific journals is not worth lining in Idaho. iSM Unit they don't believe in Ilial kind of research, not lhal they are incapable nf such, and not lhal they don't frequently perform such experiments. They, at least most of Ihe staff, would seem to prefer to do both, but with emphasis nn practical research results which become more im- media:eh available for use by Idaho agricultural industries In Ilial they are in perfect agreement with the sentiments ol a ({real university president. Dr. ,1. K. fiuchanan. when as was earlier reported of bis remarks, in l!ir,n, al I'arniii he asserted "Here, in Idaho, our universities have come tiff the Ihe people where they belong.
