THE announcement that River Falls State Teachers College had been accepted
by the State Board of Vocational Agricultural, and would probably be accepted
by the National Board as well, as one of the colleges from which students graduating
from a four year agricultural course would be eligible to teach in the Smith-Hughes
schools was enthusiastically received by members of Agrifallian. This announce-
ment, coming from Mr. May, Head of the Agricultural Department, showed the
agricuIturaT student the bettered financial prospects whlch awalted him upon hls
Field Day, the big event of the College year to the agricultural students, was
staged with unusual success last spring. A crowd of parents and high school stu-
dents were the guests of the department, as the Patronis Day celebration was on
the same date. North Hall Gymnasium was filled with exhibits and demonstration
booths. Every man in the Department had some part in the day's program. The
demonstrations given were adjudged by the State Superintendent of Vocational
Agriculture to be excellent. The largest number of entries in the Field Day live-
stock judging contest for high school teams was chalked up this year.

One of the outstanding steps taken by the club this year was the decision made
by the organization that a standard design for rings and pins, representative of
the Agrifallian Society, should be selected. By virtue of this decision the club
members now present: for inspection a ring or pin which tells to everyone,
both in the school and those who have graduated and are now out in the teaching
field, that the wearer is a loyal member of the Society.
An arrangement of programs of a somewhat novel nature was planned by the
members of the teaching staff in the agricultural department. By means of this
system committees composed entirely of students with an upperclassman as chair-
man were selected and dated to stage a program at one of the regular meetings
of the club. Outside of a little advice from the instructors of the department, the
programs were arranged entirely by the students. Under this system the student was
compelled to learn how to arrange a program and how to stage one. He received some
valuable training in public speaking and parliamentary law. Knowledge in regard to
subjects which are closely related to agriculture, but are lightly touched upon in
the class room was procured, so that the student graduating from the college might
have an education that was broad enough and full enough to fit him for the hardest
teaching work offered to a college graduate, that of a teacher in the Smith-Hughes
schools of the state and country at large.

A SUCCESSFUL poultry show was also staged in the gymnasium last winter
by the Society. Poultry from' miles around was brought to the show to be
adjudged. In addition to the poultry judging, speeches by poultry authorities
were given. -
One of the high lights of the year was the second annual Agrifallian-Rural Life
party. As a return for the party given to the Agrifallian the year previous by the
Rural Life Club, the men of the Agrifallian gave a party in honor of the Rural
Life Club. An old time orchestra was procured for the dancing. Cards and other
games were enjoyed by those present, following which refreshments were served.
In the organization basketball tournament held during the winter the Agrifallian
quint tied for first honors, only to lose them in the play-off.
Professor A. N. Johnson said that although the year had brought no phenomenal
events to light, the Agrifallian had unusually well fulfilled the purpose for Which
it was organized.
