Title: O. A. C. Review Volume 50 Issue 5, February 1938

Abstract: This issue begins with an article about the history of Red Fife Wheat from its origins in Galicia to its importation to Peterborough. Agricultural articles pertain to the dietary benefits of human consumption of rye and timothy grasses, and continued research in soil nutrient depletion. Other articles include the presentation of A. T. Christie's Victorian medals to the Ontario Agricultural College. An alumnus continues his 1931 story as a stowaway. The English column addresses the use of proper English and the origin of the Little Theatre Movement. While the literary column provides book reviews, an account of the Canadian Author Lecture by H. Napier Moore, and the composition of epitaphs. The athletics column reports on the results of the competitions in basketball, swimming, hockey, boxing, wrestling, and fencing. In the Macdonald Institute column a student describes the O. A. C. campus to foreign students, there are also accounts of the "Feminine Section of O. A. C., and a tally of the food consumed in the dinning hall. The highlight of the campus news column is the Conversazione of 1938 and the social events of the season. The O. V. C. column provides updates of the joint social events between the colleges on campus. A new column - the Club News, reviews events for each of the animal husbandry, field husbandry, dairy, horticulture, and biology clubs. Alumni and Alumnae columns provide alumni updates.
