H. K. Dlckson, head of the K. C. U. II. S., agriculture department, accompanied the visitors on their tour of Inspection. Unique Enterprise , One of the first enterprises of this nature ever undertaken by a high school agriculture department, In state or nation, the K. C. U. H. S. laboratory farm remains 'a unique achievement. It furnishes a "work shop" for more than 300 students enrolled In agricultural classes, Approximately 125 students have vegetable gardens on the farm. An additional 85 boys who are Interested In livestock get practical training In caring for tho herd of nurebred milk cattle, sheep and hogs located there. These serve as foundation herds for the livestock raised by the agricultural students In their home projects as well. Vineyard and orchard furnish "laboratory" materials for tho students of horticulture. "Laboratory" Farm Mr. Dlckson Is Insistent upon the use of the word "laboratory" rather than "model" in connection with the farm, as under existing conditions It Is not possible to make It a model farm. It was established to give practical training In agricultural pursuits to all students enrolled In these classes, giving u variety of training that wan seldom possible on their homo farms. Doctor Graves and Mn Denbigh expressed great interest. In thu management of the fann and expressed themselves as being favorably Impressed by Its workmanlike appearance. When tho agricultural extension service taught farmers of the nation how to Increase their / production great cotton and wheat buying corporations were "all for the service," but now that the extension service, under federal law, IH trying to teach farmers something of economics and co-operative marketing In order that they mny approximate a living profit on their labors, the mime great Interests are opposing the extension service, Alex Johnson, secretary of the California Farm Bureau Federation, told directors of the Kern County Farm Bureau at their meeting today. Open News Agencies So greatly concerned are these brokers with having no [interference In their handling of the farmers' wheat and cotton and other produce, they have established two big news bureaus or propaganda agencies, one In Chicago and the other In Washington, and are getting their "copy" on accredited news wires, he declared. Mr. Johnson said the Farm Bureau of the nation Is going to fight any move to curtail the extension service In Its intelligent efforts to aid the fanners of the nation who are facing ruin unless they are helped by disinterested service. . Discusses Costs The speaker pointed out that $8,000,000 was spent on the nation's'agricul- tural extension service, or less than 2% per cent of the department of agriculture's budget. Of tho department of agriculture budget, 58 per cent haw been spent on roads and 16 per cent for emergency drpught loans, contrasted with the small amount spent on training the farmer In economics and crop cultural methods, he said.
