But if another inetliod is preferred tjJpi probably the next best way would-be to have a training farm/) near a small A*lllage where a group of men could get their training under ttie supervision of a farm manager wlio would make them effective labo/eM. When this {raining was completed they would be given a certificate as to^their attainments andi given omployipent with some farmer fit a stipulated wage in accordance with their aibJlUy. After say two montlis ot-thig work the farmer would be at liberty to discharge th^m or to retain their sen'Ices as suited both parties. The man Avould be then in a position to ,profit by a- five-months' course at one of the agrj-cultural colleges. Having haU his practical experience he couIdv"^ake advantage ot the intensive courae offered which would render him a truly effi^lnt farmer. "roere is the third way of training the men at the universities. Now undoubtedly the nniversities could undertake thijs'preliminary iraiuing and indeed the'University ot Saskatchewan has done so. Over 2i*,0 soldiers have taken courses here which fitted Jijem tor farm life, and we have about 29 at present on the roll. But I do not think it is the function oC U�e universities to do this worlt. Special Course Needed "A special department has tO' be created and special classes organized. Tbe ordinary "w^rk of an agricultural college is preparedi tor_the man who' has had practical . experience : and who wishes to complete his farm education along scientific lifes.^ Tt is experimental work largely, and to plunge a novice, into rSUcUif surroundings ii5 like placing a medical "student in a ready-made* practice without his having even matriculated.
