Title: O. A. C. Review Volume 50 Issue 8, Midsummer 1938
Author: Ontario Agricultural College
Abstract: The highlight of this issue is the Macdonald Institute graduation ceremonies and examination results, including photographs. Research articles include the bacteriology of fat globules, milk testing of dairy cattle, the deterioration of stored butter, and minerals in the human body. This issue also includes profiles of notable visitors to the Ontario Agricultural College, and a continuation of the travel diary of a professor's journey through the West Indies. A few students write of their experiences as representatives of the College, as they travel to conferences and annual meetings, and of the pasture composition in New Zealand. Of interest is the new animal nutrition department and a history of the research conducted on campus since 1905. An overview of the work of the agricultural extension department explains the wealth of information provided to farmers. Reprinted in this issue is the poem, The First Sheaf, along with some farm humour. An article addresses the necessity of plant conservation with the establishment of arboretums. The Macdonald Institute column provides a listing of all of the graduates, a summary of the graduation ceremony, and a photograph of the Daisy Chain. The Macdonald Alumnae column includes a review of the new food laboratory at the Institute, reports on the Homecoming Weekend and the Alumnae Tea, and the Institute's contribution to the Red Cross Nutrition Classes. Campus news provides photographs of cattle shown on campus, and the life for students who remains on campus for the summer. Two alumni provide an update on their aviation company. Alumni news includes photographs of various reunions on campus and alumni updates. Provided in this issue is an extensive graduate list of alumni occupations and home addresses.
