Ol)e Short (Tourse O UR Third Annual Farmer s and Housekeeper’s special course was offi- cially opened November 30, and closed the evening of December 19, 914. Over 3,000 people assembled on the campus to hear the opening address, by Governor George H. Hodges and the address by Dr. Wm. A. McKeever of the State University. The pageant representing different stages in the development of Western Kansas, the Auto Polo game, and the Operetta “Japanese Girl’’ were other features of the opening day. The farmers were especially interested in the poultry show of the Golden Belt Poultry Association, the Golden Belt Horse Show, and the demonstration of steam and gasoline tractors. The short course aside from its benefits to the farmers and their wives, was in reality a great community center in which the student himself partook went to school to the class room with his father and mother, rubbed elbows with them at the laboratory table, and went to school to the same teachers at the same time. In addition to the Fort Hays Normal instructors, the faculty for this special course consisted of seventeen specialists from the Kansas State Agri- cultural College, President Waters and Dean Jardine, one lecturer from the University of Kansas and three from the State Board of Health. The manu- facturing companies furnished three engine demonstrators. The Annual Short Course has proven to be one of the most successful means of serving our constituency as well as the student on the campus. 89

Obe Cxtension Service T HE Fort Hays Kansas Normal School believes that it should serve the state outside its own school population as well as its students. It be- lieves also that its students will best be able to serve the communities to which they go if they learn by actual experience in school, the practice of service to the needs of communities. In fact, it believes that education con- sists in learning to live in the way one will be expected to live after school is “out With these two things in mind, the school is doing the following things: It conducts a correspondence department by means of which students and teachers may make credits while teaching or otherwise engaged away from school. It furnishes a lecture course to any community desiring the same. This course consists of lectures, scientific demonstrations, illustrated lectures, and musical entertainments. It furnishes lectures and addresses for teachers meetings and commence- ment exercises; also judges for contests. The library sends out books, pamph- lets and magazines to teachers, debators and educational organizations. The Normal has sent out during the past year a Musical Company con- sisting of Mr. and Mrs. Malloy, Mrs. Wooster and Mr. Obert. For schools having stereopticons, lantern slides on almost any subject are furnished at the cost of transportation. Mr. Bird and Mr. Wooster have carried a stereopticon, lantern slides, and a Victrola to the country schools in the vicinity of Hays and have furnished lectures and entertainments to these country communities. The seed testing service is excellently equipped to test seeds for adulter- ation, etc., at no cost to the farmer desiring the same. The Boys ' and Girls’ Club movement is rapidly spreading throughout the United States. The Fort Hays Normal School is ready to help any county get this work started. The Ellis County boys and girls are to have a County Fair in the autumn of 1915 at which they will exhibit the products of their summer efforts. Other wide-awake counties are going to do the same. These items of extension service are in operation. Others are soon to be started. 90
