Ontario Agricultural College

This issue begins with the Honor Roll that lists all of the Ontario Agricultural College students and alumni who have enlisted in the First World War. Agricultural articles pertain to growing red clover in Canada, the breeding of exceptional egg-laying hens, orchard management, and the results of soil survey research. Other articles address the need for agricultural leadership from O. A. C. students, farm bookkeeping, and forest conservation. Student contributions include a commentary on graduation as the beginning of new endeavors and a reflection on how excellent grades are not indicative of future success. An article focuses on how the English language has acquired many slang phrases. While another article from the "Ladies' Home Journal" comments on an individual's need for culture and independent thinking. The editorial highlights the contribution of the members of the Honor Roll and the returning students who have received an honorable discharge. The Alumni column contains wartime correspondence. The Macdonald Institute column provides a freshette's first impression of Mac Hall. While the Locals column provides campus humour.
