Title: O. A. C. Review Volume 51 Issue 2, November 1938
Author: Ontario Agricultural College
Abstract: This issue begins with an editorial on compulsory attendance at lectures and the debate it has created amongst students. A student writes of his work with Western Canadian farmers affected by drought, soil reclamation, and the Prairie Farm Rehabilitation Act. Student contributed articles report on student involvement with the Danforth Foundation Fellowship, a tobacco farmer's perspective on tobacco farming, and grain harvesting with a motorized combine. The English department column provides Professor Stevenson's anecdotes on English usage. A history and explanation of the coat of arms for the Ontario Agricultural College is located on page 86. Two professors contribute an article on the use of electric fencing in Ontario. H. Y. Chang contributes an article on establishing the first newspaper for rural China. Campus news pertains to campus humour, the numerous dances and proms held during the autumn, and unfavourable news coverage about the student initiation. The Literary column presents articles regarding guest debaters from Australia, the public speaking contest, Student Christian Movement activities, and book reviews (including the book The Third Reich). The centrefold is devoted to the history of the O. A. C. band. The athletics column provides updates of the sports: soccer, cross-country running, and football. The Macdonald Institute column introduces the Mac Class presidents, the events held at Community House, and the results of the women's swim meet. The Macdonald Alumnae column provides the current occupations and addresses of the 1938 graduates. The Alumni column includes alumni updates, marriage announcements, and an updated graduate list. Other articles report on the Kiwanis International involvement in agriculture, the latest food research at the Trent Institute on campus, and items from the O. V. C. reporter.
