The pro is much'opposed to their being together. "In states where they are "agriculture is badly, if not absolutely neglected. In Wyoming, although a year "of Federal money is biven the state uni versity for agricultural education, it is ueelected so badly that the Legisla- tion.

"The agricultural students are at- tracted to science or classics because the crowd is there. Where they are separate tne agricultural cblege is thc greater. In Montana, they have twice as many students as the state university. In Iowa the agricultural college students outnumber those of the university.

The ladies armed wirh a reso- lution of the city council in favor 01 an amendment of this nature to bfe incorporated in the city charter, and the spokeslady carried a huge cane. The city solicitor of Strathcona rais- ed the objection that thc resolution was carried only by the double vote of the mayor. Deftly brandishing her stick, the spokeswoman of thc depu- tation called the city solicitor down in genuine womanlike vituperation, which made the legal -adviser of
