Notes:
Describes the first agricultural journalism course offered at the University of Illinois. It was taught during second semester 1907, featuring agricultural editors as guest lecturers. "The demand for trained workers in this line is considerable and the managers of agricultural journals assert that the average student from college is of little value in a newspaper office. This is largely due to the fact that he has had absolutely no instruction in work of this kind. Very naturally, he is all at sea when he accepts a position on an agricultural paper."
