Title: O. A. C. Review Volume 29 Issue 7, March 1917
Author: Ontario Agricultural College
Abstract: The theme of this issue is rural improvement. Some articles on rural improvement focus on rural education, as a way to combat the farm labor shortage, to relieve the monotony of farm life for the famer's wife, and Saskatchewan's Circulating College utilization of the Better Farming Train. Agricultural rural improvement articles consist of the preservation of food, the importance of vigorous potato stock, the value in painting barns, the profitability of commercial fertilizers, the need for a water supply throughout the farmhouse, and the need for good roads. Horticultural articles pertaining to rural improvement include how gladioli can beautify the home, and the farm garden. Campus news consists of reports of the Union Literary meeting, the Literary Society discussions, the Sophomore Banquet, and the athletic results for the hockey and basketball games. The Macdonald column highlights the success of the Third Year Dance. The Alumni column consists of alumni news and several military letters from O. A. C. soldiers.
