Utah State Pushes Building Program; Agriculture and Forestry Hall Heads List "Building USAC is building Utah." With this as the theme, Utah State will ask the 1949 state legislature for funds to continue the construction program now under way. First on the list of urgently needed buildings is the Agriculture and Forestry Hall, for which $950,000 is being requested, President Franklin S. Harris said. The structure is needed for two chief r easons. One is the great increase in enrollment since the wa r. The other is the flood of insistent demands from all over th e state to solve problems encountered by farmers and homemakers. The research scientists of USAC r equire adequate facilities to pave th way for Utah's progress. Also essential is a new Nursery School building at an estimated cost of $40,000. The present one, adapted from old residence, is outmoded and over-crowdeed. It occupies the site chosen for the proposed Union Building and must be removed. Plans for a spacious Union are being developed by Architect Fred Markham of Provo, with ground breaking ceremonies set for this spring. College officials will ask the legislature for $80,000 for major repairs in 1949-51. High on the list of College needs is the Auditorium and Humanities building estimated to cost $750,000. The historic Main auditorium with its few hundred seats is adequate for some classes but is not at all large enough for the student body of today, when more than 4000 resident students throng the campus. Other building requests follow: Stock judging and exhibit pavilion, $100,000; dairy husbandry building, $30,000 ; a sum to complete poultry units, $30,000; beef cattle barns, $50,000; engineering laboratory building, $500,000; library addition, $150,000; aeronautics testing structure, $15,000; meats laboratory, $50,000 ; fruit and vegetable storage, $50,000; greenhouses, $50,000 . Dr. Harris has set salary increases as his No. 1 problem in faculty welfare this year. He has hopes that the legislature will provide the funds necessary. Efforts are being exerted to show that costs of living, the necessity of holding a first-rate staff, and other factors require substantial raises if the institution is to meet the demands placed upon it by the state. President Harris pointed out, however, that the new state law provides for regular appropriations on the basis of a "formula." Certain sums will be allotted according to enrollment and floor space weighted for such classifications as classrooms and laboratories. State employees are determined that the terms of the formula wll be applied uniformly to all state-supported institutions of higher learning.

Memo to Utah Aggies: ~~see Your County Agent"! Extension Office Is College Headquarters In Your County By John St ewart. Extension Editor

Aggie alumni a~d the Extensi_on Service have a umque opportumty to be mutually helpful and add strength a nd dignity to the USAC. Perhaps you buzzed or struggled through College wit~out ever. h eari ng of the Extenswn Service or Alumni Association. As a student on the campus you might not have become acquainted with the work of either organization. But as an alum, living out in the state, you should be engaged in the activities of these important divisions of the College. USAC is really four institutions in one : the College proper, the Experiment Station, the E x tension Service, and the Alumni Association. The strength of the College is dependent to a large degree upon the strength and cooperation of the Extension Service and Alumni Association. Through its Extension Service the College has an office in every county of the state, except one (Daggett.) One or more faculty members of the College are stationed in each county, and others, stationed at the College, spend half or more of their time traveling throughout the state from county to county. These professors -known as county agricultural agents, home demonstration agents, and state extension specialists-are as much a part of the College as the English professor whose classes you enjoyed or cut. Their offices, in the county, close to where you live, are as much a part of the College as the bell in the tower of the Old Main. Aggie Leaders Needed So if you get homesick for your alma mammy drop into the extension office in your county and get acquainted with the agents-the "profs"-most of whom are also members of the Alumni Association to which y ou belong. The Extension Service needs the help of good Aggies-College trained men and women-to assist with its educational programs, as leaders of extension projects in the county. They in turn can help you. Trained in agriculture and home economics, these Extension w orkers can aid y ou with your farming, homemaking and community problems. They will supply you with College bulletins on various subjects. If you want to sign up for a correspondence home study course or get an extension class organized in your locality, the county agents can give you full information and make the necessary arrangements. Requests for lecturers, dramas, musical numbers, visual aids, and other College offerings should be made through your county agent.

e A BROADER PHILOS OPHY OF E X TENSION SERVICE WORK is_ envi;ioned by the Aggie Extension Service Administrators as they gathe~ around thetr chte/ ~or a conference .. . Seated, left to right : T~elm a _Hu.ber, S.u pervtsor of ho;ne eccon?mtcs programs; Dr. Carl Frischknecht, extenswn. dtrector ; and R. L. W n g_ley, asststant director and supervisor of Agricultural programs. Back row, left to n tsht: Dr. Le¡ Grande G. No ble supervisor of non-resident study programs; G. A lvm Carpenter, assistant director ' for county services; and David Sharp, Jr., supervisor of youth programs. The Extension Service has specialists in foods and nutrition, in recreation sociology, home management, marketing, soil conservation, and many other agricultural, homemaking and community building subjects. The services of one or more of these specialists can be obtained by contacting your county agent. A Junior Aggie Program If y ou would like your son or daughter to enjoy the advantages that come from being in 4-H Club work, remember it is the College Extension Service that has charge of this vast educational program. Four-H'ers, you know, are young Aggies. There are 8,500 of them in Utah this year. Your county agent is in need of good, capable men and women to lead these clubs. They would be glad to have you help them. There is no limit to the number of ways you can serve the College, and at the same time help yourself. Wide awake leaders are needed

by the Ex tension Service in farm , home and community improvement projects that the Extension Service concerns itself with the y ear around -such projects as dairy herd improvement work, furniture reupholstery schools, fly control campaigns, soil conservation, etc. Realizing that a strong Alumni Association is essential for a strong USAC, the Extension Service is anxious to cooperate in the formation of additional Alumni chapters throughout the state and in promotion of Alumni activities on a local and county basis. With cooperation of the alumni, the county offices of the USAC might serve as a spearhead for additional Association organization and activities. Practically all extension workers are USAC graduates. Director of the Ex tension Service is Dr. Carl Frischknecht, class of 1924; assistant director for ~eneral administration is R. L. Wngley, '11 ; assistant (Continued on Page 7)

Aggie Football Squad Finishes Fourth e "HOD" SANDERS . . . general chairman of Salt Lake City festivities on Nov¡ ember 24.

Salt Lake Dinner Honors Athletes Alumni and Aggie students reached a high pitch of excitement as the various events planned for the annual pre-Thanksgiving Day football program got under way Wednesday, November 24, in Salt Lake City. Starting out at 5 p . m . a parade of students and floats wended its way from Hotel Utah to the Newhouse Hotel. There at 6 p. m . the annual Utah State athletic banquet, honoring the football and basketball teams of 1935 and 1936, was held, with Professor Moyle Q. Rice '36, acting as master of ceremonies. Responses were heard from all the team members present, together with a brief resume of the history of the four teams by "Quig" Nielsen '38. Supervising this year's traditional program in Salt Lake City was N. V. (Hod) Sanders '27 of Kaysville, who served as general alumni chairman of arrangements. He presided at the banquet. Following the dinner, alumni and students joined together to dance until after 12 midnight. Cleo Petty '36 and his band furnished the music. Members of the 1935 and 1936 squads in attendance were: Harold J. Hansen, Lloyd Elder, Harvey England, Karl Ferrin, Elmo Garff, Joe Whitesides, Dallas Greener, Dean Henderson, Joe Mabey, Tracy Maero, Cleo Petty, Cliff Poole, Willard Skousen, Floyd Slater, Shelby West, Bob Bunker, Ira Winger, Lawrence Mathews, Shirley Jackson, Floyd Rasmussen, and Rollie Gardner.

With their suits finally turned in after a 11 game football schedule, Utah State gridders could look back upon a season which placed them in fourth place in the Skylix Six conference. Wins were scored over BYU and Wyoming, but losses were sustained at the hands of Colorado A. & M., Denver and the Un iversity of Utah. Non-conference games ended with the Farmers scoring wins over Mon tana State, Montana University, a nd Arizona State, with losses t o Wichita University, and San Diego State. University of Utah took f irst place in the conference, Colorado A . & M ., second ; Denver, third; BYU, fifth ; and Wyoming, despite a better than average team, landed in the cellar with f ive losses out of five starts.

tensive improvements have taken place in the men's dormitory. A new rapport between the college and the communities it serves has also been achieved, particularly in the area of education. A council of superintendents of schools of the southern area now sits in with the administration and faculty at BAC and Dean of the School of Education at USAC in planning and carrying out the teacher training program. The schools of Cedar City are also cooperating fully in making their schools rooms and staffs available for assistance in training elementary teachers. Dr. E. A. Jacobsen has kept particularly close note of progress in this field In other areas there has been a new exchange of ideas. Since BAC has been made a residence training center new emphasis has been placed on extension courses and better community service. In the field of agriculture also, USAC deans and department heads have worked with BAC faculty members in improving the program to serve better the agricultural needs of the area. Further progress is in the making with plans going forward for the addition of an R. 0 . T. C. unit for e BAG ADMINISTRATORS SU RVEY SCHOOL PROGRESS . . . Seated, left to .. the southern branch.
