Excerpt from The Quarterly of Alpha Zeta, Vol. 14: June, 1916 While a great deal of the school work in agriculture was poorly done, yet interest in the teaching of the subject was aroused to the extent that the legislature of the State, without a dissenting vote, passed a law in 1913, which made mandatory the teaching of agriculture in the public schools of towns and town ships. In accordance with the pro visions of the law about seven thousands teachers are this year teaching agriculture to approxi mately fifty thousand pupils in the seventh and eighth grades, and six hundred high school teachers have classes in agriculture.
