Abstract
  • To give the many Oregon farmers, who, are unable to leave home to take a four-year course in the Agricultural College, a share in the advantages of a higher education the Experiment Station has for years conducted- farmers' institutes in various parts of the state. The success of these encouraged the Station, four years ago, to establish at the Agricultural College what is known as a Farmers' Short Course. This covers a field which on account of limited time and lack of apparatus cannot be attempted in a farmers' institute. The course consists of a series of popular lectures along lines suited to aid horticulturists and dairymen in developing the great natural resources of our state. The lectures are all supplemented by laboratory work under supervision of the professors who strive to make the course thoroughly practical by adapting the work as far as possible to the needs of each individual. There is no charge for tuition and no laboratory fees in this course, neither is there any educational test for entrance. Any man or woman who desires information along the lines of horticulture, dairying, etc., will be ielcomed. Good board and lodging may be obtained in Corvallis at from $2.50 to $4.00 per week, and those desiring to lessen expenses by boarding themselves can obtain furnished rooms at reasonable rates.
