colleges, extension communication, farm journals, roles, universities
Notes:
Notes that farm papers, under financial strain along with their readers, are "sticking to their job of trying to help matters to mend." Says that the educational work of the colleges and experiment stations through local papers comes directly into the field formerly covered by farm papers, but "affords only a fraction of the service a live farmer wants. There is no displacing a good farm journal." Suggests that scientists should recognize the importance of the farm press in their contacts with the public.
