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

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.

G. O. P.
O. P. has continued to merit its title in the very best way possible this
V year an W511 an ylbviuun Juana.
With the opening of school we saw at once the many difficulties We had to face.
Our last ycafs ofhcers had become alumnae, leaving the rest of us, comparatively
few in number, to start the work of the club and carry it throughout the .year.
We were without an advisor, since Miss Alberta Greene was on leave of absence
for the year. Our rather obsolete constitution had to be revised. These tasks
With the traditional good spirit of G. O. P., all difficulties were soon overcome.
Officers were elected to serve until May. One of our best loved teachers, Miss
Haddow, consented to be our adviser. Our appreciation of her work in this capacity
can hardly be measured. Our first meetings were given over almost entirely to
the writing of our new constitution. This was difficult to accomplish, but we now
feel as though we have something to guide us in our work.
At the beginning of the year, we decided to study the three arts, music, art,
and literature. All of our programs have centered about these. In these Thursday
night meetings we have taken up for example, negro art, literature, and music.
