The Scientific Agricultural associa
tion is a society which was organized
by the Junior and Senior Agrlcultur
al students last year. Much Interest
has been shown In the work from the
very first. There Is no question as
to the benefit each active member
gets from these meetings held everv
two weeks. Four men are put on (he
program for a talk at each meting and
so on until every member has been
on the program.
It is not only (he men who are on
the program who do the talking but
a general discussion always follows
In these general discussion Ideas are
exchanged and good fellowship pro
moted. The benefits derived from the
meetings aro not limited to the Infer
mat ion given by the members on tin
program but tho man who prepares a
subject to present gains much Infor-
mation on his subject while prepar
He also gets valuable practice tn
speaking before an audience and ex
pressing his opinions on agricultural
subjects. In after life the graduates
will often be called on to give Infor
mation and to speak before assem-
blages of various kinds. In the meet
ings that are being hold now the stu-
dents get practice which will certain-
