Title: O. A. C. Review Volume 28 Issue 6, February 1916
Author: Ontario Agricultural College
Abstract: This issue begins with an article that provides a system of bookkeeping for the farmer to increase his efficiency. The agricultural articles pertain to the muskmelon industry in Ontario and the benefits of meteorological knowledge for the farmer. Campus events that highlight the research conducted on the campus include reports from the annual meeting of the Ontario Agricultural and Experimental Union and the Poultry Short Course. Of interest is an article on how an untidy farm home environment may affect children and whether they become farmers. One article calls for the conservation of native bird species from the dangers of the fashion industry that uses their plumage in millinery. An English article comments on the anglicising of foreign words. Articles contributed by students include a short story by McArthur, D. C. and the British song, the Woman's National Anthem. The editorial encourages farmers to maximize their productivity for the war effort. Campus news reports on the annual banquet of the Ontario Agricultural and Experimental Union, the Massey Hall lecture on Canadian literature, and the few athletic events. The Alumni column welcomes a wounded veteran back to campus, provides alumni updates, and wartime correspondence. The Macdonald Institute column comments on the women's initiation. While the Locals column provides campus humour.
