Corvallis, Or., November 2 2 —In
order to keep pace with the rapid
development in the science, art and
practice of agriculture and home-
making, aDd to give tboso who find
it impossible to take a regular col
lege course, the Oregon Agricultural
College is offering a winter short
course, which begins Tuesday, Jan
uary 4tb, and extends for six weeks,
and also a one-week course, better
known as Farmers' Week, which be
gins Monday, February 14th, and
extends throughout the week.
Instruction is given in either of
the above courses in General Agri
culture, Dairying, Horticulture,
Mechanic Arts, Domestic Science
and Art, and Commerce.
There are also, no doubt, many
nature farmers and housewives,
well past the usual school age. who
desire to acquaint themselves more
fully with the most receot develop
ments in their respective lines of
labor. The work offered will be
adapted to the practical needs of
mechanics, or of women in the home
and also to teachers who desire to
prepare tbemselyes to teach elemen
tary agriculture now required in
our public schools.
The i arious courses are so plan
ned as to provide the largest
amount of practical information in
the short time available.
will be do fees for attending tbe
exercises of Farmers' week. Those
who attend the other c u r ie s will
be expected to pay 11 registration
fee of |1.00. In addition, students
iu the six-week course in Dairying
will pay a labratory fee of $2 00 aud
a breakage deposit of $3.00; those
in Mechanic Arts will pay a fee of
( 2.00 for tbe course in bhicksiiiilh-
ing rind (2 00 for woodwork; those
in Household Science and Art will
pay a fee of $1.50 to cover cost of
materials used in the course in
cookery, and each student will be
expected to furnish her own ma
terials for all other classes. Board
and lodging may be had in Corval
lis at (3.50 to (4.50 per week.
No entrance examination or other
educational test will be required;
but no one will be received who is
less than sixteen years of age.
Nearly two hundred men and
women registered in these courses
in 1909; their ages ranging from
sixteen to over fifty.
A pleasing and profitable feature
of these cu rse s will be a series by
some of the most prominent men of
the state— men who are especiallv
well qualified by successful exper
ience to speak upon some particular
phase of agriculture.
