Agricultural articles address poultry house ventilation, the benefits of a Bachelor of Science in Agriculture degree, and soil science research for tobacco growers. Of interest, is an article on Jacobine Jones' bronze sculpture of the Clydesdale, Bessie Mark. The English column highlights the twenty-fifth anniversary of the Massey Hall lectures held on campus.
