Fourth President of The National Farm School
Farm School's New President
The Board of Trustees of The National Farm School
announces the election of Doctor Louis Nusbaum, as the fourth
president of the institution, effective May 1, 1943. Doctor
Nusbaum does not come as a stranger to this new position.
He has been intimately and actively associated with the School
for the past thirty years as a member of its Board of Trustees,
and during most of that period as the chairman of its Educa-
tional Committee. For the past five years he has been first
vice-president of the School and chairman of an advisory com-
mittee composed of nationally-known educators.
Dr. Nusbaum succeeds as president Dr. Harold B. Allen,
who resigned after four years of service to engage in educa-
tional reconstruction for the Iranian government under the
sponsorship of the Near East Foundation.
Dr. Nusbaum brings a fund of knowledge and many years
of experience in the field of education to the work of The
National Farm School. At the time of his election as Farm
School president, he was associate superintendent of schools
He is a member of numerous professional organizations ; a
member of the Board of Trustees of the Hebrew Education
Association, Gratz College, Mt. Sinai Hospital and the Phil-
adelphia Health Council, and of the consulting staff of the
New Jersey Training School.
Temple University, of which he is a graduate, conferred
upon him in 1930 the degree of Doctor of Pedagogy.
Under his leadership. The National Farm School should
become one of the country's most important agencies in help-
ing to solve our wartime problems and in aiding in post-war

FORTY-FIFTH ANNUAL MEETING
The National Farm School
October 18, 1942
In the midst of a mad universe seemingly bent on total destruc-
ton, we welcome you to this little world of creative effort. We meet
today to celebrate the 1942 Victory Harvest Festival and the 45th
Annual Meeting of The National Farm School.
In our annual message of last year, nearly two months before
Pearl Harbor, we recognized an active state of war as already exist-
ing. On that occasion, as you will recall, we adopted as our slogan the
battle cry of our Founder in World War I: "To Farm is to Arm."
The Farm School at War
Today, we of The National Farm School have reached yet
another stage in our rapid evolution. We, ourselves, have become a
definite part of the war. The struggle now affects our every thought
and action; it moulds all of our policies; it has called to its ranks by
enlistment and selection considerably over one hundred of our vigor-
ous young men. It has sent them out to the far corners of the earth;
it has already taken its toll of Farm School lives. As a result of this
tragic trend, our resident student body has been decreased, our
faculty reduced, and our workers in the office brought under an
almost unbearable load.
In a word, we have come to the startling realization that we are
fighting a war, and the battle that we here are waging — the battle
for food — is a crucial job: as vital in its own sphere as is the drive
for tanks and planes and ships. Moreover, we here are engaged also
in helping to train the technical army for this strategic farm front. In
these strenuous efforts we need to draw upon all our resources, to
utilize these resources in the most effective manner and to keep our
eye on the ultimate goal, which is complete and total victory. To
attain this objective we must be willing to sacrifice, for the present,
many of our educational ideals.
I can report to you with patriotic pride and satisfaction that the
members of this little community of American citizens appreciate
these facts and are attempting to adjust their lives accordingly. In
normal times our faculty is expected to combine sound instruction
with creditable production, and they do this with notable results.
Today, however, the serious lack of manpower and the urgent
demand for raw materials require that they be primarily laborers.
* Resigned as of March 31, 19^3, to engage in educational reconstruction
work for the Iranian goveimment.
Our training program presupposes that students are instructed as
they work in fields and barns and, for the sake of balanced experi-
ence, are rotated among the many farm jobs that are available here;
but today these young men must work where the call of the harvest
is most urgent, with little supervision and frequently long assign-
ments to one routine job. Most of our students have the maturity,
and the patriotism to welcome such sacrifice — to be glad, in fact, that
they are in a school that is so vitally related to the war efi'ort.
Where the farmer is tragically short of helpers, even among the
members of his own family. The National Farm School is suffering
from a 30 to 40 percent reduction in its resident student enrollment.
In an institution that is organized to be operated largely by students
as a definite part of its educational policy, the effects of such a reduc-
tion can be easily imagined. One result, although quite understand-
able, is not so readily perceived by the general public. Whereas, in
a time like this, most schools can, if necessary, combine classes,
reduce the staff and cut down the overhead to a point somewhat in
line with the smaller enrollment, just the opposite is true at an insti-
tution like ours. In order merely to maintain the plant on a produc-
tive basis, the staif should be increased while the educational aspects
of the program are, of necessity, considerably modified.
Consumers Made Into Producers
In spite of all these difficulties, we are daily achieving results in
which we take considerable satisfaction. We are contributing in a
large way to the wartime food and commodity needs of the country.
In these days when the need of manpower is so critical, we are help-
ing to meet the urgent demand for workers trained in agricultural
production. In truth, we are making an unusual contribution to this
important problem. This is due to the fact that our program is
designed primarily for the boy from the city, and we are, therefore,
transforming these youth from consumers of goods to producers of
vital commodities. Finally, we are not merely preparing these young
people for future usefulness in an essential industry, but, as a result
of the system of instruction here employed, we are enabling them to
produce on an extensive scale as an integral part of their training.
A Record Production
Last year good weather and hard work combined to give us the
best harvest in years. It is still too far from the end of the present
season to summarize accurately the results of this year's efforts.
Weather conditions were not quite so favorable as last year. In the
spring it was excessively dry; in the late summer and fall it was
much too wet. This naturally had its unfavorable effect on early
vegetables and certain of the fruit crops. But, good management
and boundless energy have gone far to overcome this condition. The
apple crop, the grape harvest and silage yields have been the best in
many seasons. By the time our fiscal year comes to a close, the
dairy and poultry departments will have contributed to our own and
the nation's needs a record production. The achievements of our
The Isaac H. Silverman Gates
A View of the Campus and
Athletic Practice Field
landscape department in training students and in producing plant
materials are abundantly shown through the beautiful and appro-
priate decorations of this room.
Possibly some of you could understand better what this school
means to the economy of the country if in place of generalized
statements I were to give you a few figures. The Farm School pro-
duced this last year:
More than 800,000 pounds of milk. 4,000 bushels of apples.
Some 10,000 bushels of potatoes. Over 600,000 eggs.
750 tons of soybeans and sorghum. 2,800 baskets of peaches.
Nearly 8,000 pounds of poultry meat.
Most of these figures are for 1941, as the 1942 summaries are not
yet available. We could go on with such figures, but these few will
serve to indicate the kind of contribution we are making to the
nation's food needs.
The maintenance of our property always deserves special consid-
eration in a report of this kind. For some years now we have been
attempting to undo the damage resulting from a prolonged de-
pression. It appeared finally that lean years were not to end for
institutions of this kind. But buildings, property, and equipment
must be kept up regardless. And so in our reports of recent years
we have emphasized our achievements in this direction — machinery
that has been repaired or replaced, barns that have been painted,
buildings that have been renovated.
About eighteen months ago, our Trustees vigorously implemented
this trend by establishing improved maintenance as a definite policy
of the Board and appropriating the funds necessary to achieve this
objective. As a result, the barn at Schoenfield Farm No. 3, long In
disrepair, was completely rebuilt. This farm has now become a place
of beauty instead of presenting the disreputable appearance that it
did for many years. In addition to this major project, scores of other
repairs, not so easy to see, but no less important, were made possible
by the decisive action of the Board. The same policy was applied not
only to the replacement but to the repair of farm machinery.
While these extensive repairs have required sizable appropria-
tions, they represent in reality, improved assets rather than any
further depletion of our already limited funds. If It becomes neces-
sary, as It frequently does, to dispose of certain of our outside hold-
ings in order to maintain properly this educational center, we can at
least take satisfaction In the fact that Important buildings are pro-
tected from deterioration, appearance enhanced, the program made
more effective, the whole place greatly Improved, and our capital
assets properly safeguarded.
On the Educational Side
Educationally speaking the Farm School has contributed much
during the past twelve months to the war effort, to the development
of youth and to rural progress in general. In March, a class of 54, one
"To Farm is to Arm"
of the largest in the history of the School was sent out into the world
to add to the ranks of trained agricultural workers. While many of
these young men immediately enlisted in the armed forces there were
some who were available to the agricultural industry at a time when
there is much need for farm manpower. Furthermore, we succeeded
in enrolling a freshman group of over fifty which, incidentally, was
twice the size of the entering class of a year ago when high wages and
the selective service law almost without warning, first swept from
their feet the youth of this country. Only by the addition of a field
worker and the effective efforts of that member of our staff were we
able to achieve such results. For the sake of all that is involved in the
successful operation of this important institution, we sincerely trust
that we may do as well with the next incoming class.
Evening Defense Course
Merely because we had long specialized in boarding pupils and
the shortage of such pupils seriously affects our traditional program,
we sometimes overlook the fact that these young men are by no
means the only students of The National Farm School. From last
October to April, for five nights every week and three hours each
night we operated a defense course in metal work and the repair of
farm machinery. Fifty-eight out-of-school young men, and a few
fathers, received training in this practical field while conserving old
farm implements for further use in food production. This instruction
was, undoubtedly, just as effective and certainly as valuable in many
respects as our traditional daytime program. The day and evening
courses combined gave us a total enrollment this past year of over
180 which is the largest number of students receiving systematic
training at The National Farm School in a number of years.
We have made many adjustments during the past several months
to conform to changing conditions. One-year training units to sup-
plement the traditional three-year course were added; a summer
work program was inaugurated to enable selected city boys not en-
rolled as regular students to aid in food production while gaining
valuable farm experience. As one means of supporting the effort of
the public _ schools of New York City and of other metropolitan
centers to induce high school boys to work on farms in summer, we
offered to accept summer work on a farm as a substitute for our
summer practice of the freshman year. Each of these measures added
a few young men to our training program. However, the most popu-
lar adjustment that was made to the demand of the times was the
evening defense course we have already mentioned.
It must be remembered that producing food, maintaining prop-
erty and instructing students are by no means the only responsi-
bilities of a practical farm school, even in time of war. There are
niany other activities that make up the life of a community of this
kind. There is for instance, the field of sports, and in this our
students have given a good account of themselves. Another is the
band which has recently shown signs of rapid improvement as a
result of student support, combined with good instruction. There
are the weekly forums that contribute so much to clear thinking and
accurate expression. Periodic dances are important items of our
program. In addition to the regular swimming parties at Forrest
Park, weekly movies were conducted throughout the summer eve-
nings in our out-of-doors amphitheatre. As if all of these regular and
extra curricular activities did not consume enough energy, the stud-
ents, faculty, and a few friends of our immediate neighborhood con-
tributed 119 pints of blood to the Red Cross blood bank.
In thinking back over the events of the year, we cannot forget
two great leaders who have passed from our midst. In January, Her-
bert D. Allman, long a trustee of The National Farm School, for
many years its able president, and in latter years holding the title of
honorary president, passed on to his well-earned reward. In Sep-
tember, just a few days after returning from a 12,000 mile tour of
the United States and Canada, Mr. Louis Schlesinger, a member of
the Board of Trustees, chairman of the National Board of State
Directors, and the School's leading ambassador of good-will, passed
away. Mr. Schlesinger died quite suddenly and practically in
harness, just as he would wish to have gone. No more fitting tribute
could be paid to these two great men than to dedicate to them this
beautiful affair of today.
Role in War and in Victory
In the long, hard days of reconstruction that must surely follow
the present world conflict. The National Farm School will continue
to play an important part in the economy of the country. When
victory finally comes, as it surely will, and men return to normal life
from belching factories and bloody battle fronts, it is to the soil that
many will hurriedly go for a secure livelihood and a peacful mode of
life. When the vast, devastated, scorched areas of Europe are again
free to bloom, it will be the seeds of America that will supply the new
life. When the poor starved slaves of Hitlerized Europe are again
unshackled and made free to be nourished back to vitality, it will be
the products of American soil that will be urgently needed. The farms
of post-war days will be called upon to provide many of the products
that now come from industrial sources.
And so in this harvest season that lies between the ancient
Succoth of Israel and the Thanksgiving Day of our Pilgrim fathers,
we give thanks that we are permitted to play so vital a part in the
needs of our fellowmen — in war and in peace.
FORTY-SECOND ANNUAL COMMENCEMENT
March 22, 1942
The Forty-second Annual Commencement of The National
Farm School was held in the Louchheim Auditorium on Sun-
day afternoon, March 22, 1942, in the presence of a large
audience. Among the fifty-four graduates who received di-
plomas were five young refugees from Nazi-dominated Euro-
pean countries. One of the refugees, Peter Salm, who entered
the School from New York City, was valedictorian of the class
and Herman Wilensky, of Philadelphia, was salutatorian.
The graduation address was delivered by Dr. Ernest
L. Nixon, agricultural leader, author and lecturer. Henry
Schmieder, professor of chemistry and botany, represented
the faculty on the program. Rabbi Malcolm Stern, of Phil-
adelphia, delivered the invocation and Reverend Enoch S.
Moore, of Doylestown, Pa., gave the benediction.

Farm School, held on Sunday, March 21, 1943, in the Louch-
heim Auditorium on the School campus. This class had felt
the full impact of war conditions and, as a result, its numbers
had been considerably reduced during its three-year stay at
Dr. John A. Lester, of Doylestown, Pa., executive secre-
tary of the Friends Council of Education, delivered the Grad-
uation Address. Dr. Lester laid stress upon the importance
of each of the graduates informing himself about what is
necessary to plan for a permanent peace. He declared "The
very nature of the existence of our schools in America today
depends upon planning for an enduring peace to come." He
urged the graduates to remain in agriculture to help win the
war and the peace afterward.
In his address to the graduates, prior to presenting the
diplomas. Dr. H. B. Allen, president of the School, said to
them : "We now come to the real point of this program. Our
purpose from the moment we assembled here was to do honor
to you, to send you out from this place with all of the inspira-
tion we might be able to give to each one of you as our final
contribution to your training at Farm School in mind and
character. This year we can well consider our farewell
thoughts together. For I, too, am taking leave of Farm School
at the end of the same period of time as some of you — three
years of undergraduate study, let us say, and one year of
postgraduate training. In that period of time we have caught,
I hope, the spirit of idealism of the founder of the School.
We have tried to carry a few steps upward and onward the
message of love, hope, creative effort and human tolerance
which was bequeathed to this School by Doctor Krauskopf."
LeRoy W. Ingham, professor in charge of the animal hus-
bandry department, represented the faculty on the program.
C. Milton Eder, of Green Lane, Pa., was salutatorian and
Abraham Cohen, of Philadelphia, was valedictorian.
Prizes were awarded to Abraham Cohen for highest scho-
lastic attainment and for work in horticulture ; to C. Milton
Eder for highest marks in supervised practice and for work
in general agriculture; to Otmar Silberstein, as the outstand-
ing refugee student of the class ; to Uriel H. Schoenbach for
work in dairying ; to Benjamin Goldpaint for greenhouse
work; to Otto L. Stein, in farm machinery; to John R. Mollick
for work in horticulture ; to James R. Charlesworth for land-
scape gardening; and to Paul Schwartz for work in poultry

tificates for post-graduate work were awarded as follows :

AND TREE DEDICATION EXERCISES
SUNDAY, JUNE 7, 1942
Founders Day, marking the forty-sixth anniversary of the
establishment of The National Farm School by the late Rabbi
Joseph Krauskopf, was celebrated on Sunday, June 7, 1942.
The ceremonies were held on the picturesque campus in an
improvised outdoor amphitheater. The traditionally fine
"Krauskopf weather" prevailed, though the drastic restric-
tions which the war situation had placed upon the use of
automobiles considerably reduced the customary large num-
bers which usually attend these exercises.
James Marshall, president of the New York City Board of
Education, delivered the Founders Day address, in which he
made this significant observation: "One of the most notable
truths to emerge from our present war program is that every
economical segment of our nation can and must play its part.
The role of the farmer is of transcendent importance. The
fall of Bataan and Corregidor proved once again that without
food men cannot fight. It cannot be too often repeated that
food will win the war and write the peace. I regard the work
of The National Farm School, which each year produces a
squadron of young men fully equipped to man the food pro-
duction line, as an important contribution to victory."
Dr. Isaac Landman, of the Garfield Place Temple, Brook-
lyn, N. Y., editor of the Jewish Encyclopaedia, was on the
program for the traditional tribute to the work of the founder
of the School, as well as to pay a eulogy to the late Herbert
D. Allman, benefactor and former president, who had passed
away recently. Dr. Landman spoke intimately and from per-
sonal knowledge and friendship of the fine qualities of these
two leaders; "the one the founder and first president; the
other the builder and second president, whose vision and de-
voted service had been responsible for much of the Farm
School's transition from simple beginnings to its present fine
physical and educational standing."
Dr. Cornelius Weygandt, professor of English at the Uni-
versity of Pennsylvania, lecturer and author, was in charge
of the dedication of the Festive and Memorial Trees. More
than seventy such trees had been planted during the year in
honor of joyous occasions and in memory of departed persons.
Prominent among those for whom trees were named, in addi-
tion to the tree for former President Allman, were two for
former students who lost their lives in the armed forces.
These were Corporal Theodore Lewis, who was killed in action
at Pearl Harbor on December 7, 1941, and Corporal Alfred
Savino who was killed while in training shortly after his
The student body was represented on the program by
Otmar Silberstein '43, of New York City. Rabbi Joseph Klein,
of Philadelphia, offered the invocation and the closing bene-
diction was pronounced by Reverend John F. Fogarty, of
Doylestown, Pa. Stanley H. Hinlein, of Philadelphia, member
of the Board of Trustees and Chairman of the Founders Day
Starting from the Krauskopf Library on the campus, hay-
ride educational tours, under the guidance of members of the
faculty, were conducted over the entire farms, visiting the
poultry department, the dairy barns, greenhouses, orchards
and other places of interest on the over one thousand acres
under cultivation by the School. Guides stationed at the
speakers' stand directed visitors to the various buildings and
departments, which were open for inspection throughout the
day, and to the Memorial and Festive Trees.*
Music for the occasion was furnished by the student band,
under the direction of Lieutenant Joseph Frankel, of Phil-
adelphia, bandmaster and musical instructor.
* Complete list of those for whom trees were dedicated is published

HARVEST FESTIVAL AND
FORTY-FIFTH ANNUAL MEETING
OCTOBER 17-18, 1942
Farm training for war production was the keynote sounded
at the 1942 Harvest Festival and Forty-fifth Annual Meeting
of The National Farm School held at Farm School, Pennsyl-
vania, Saturday and Sunday, October 17 and 18, 1942.
Educational and competitive exhibits were opened on Sat-
urday morning and the two-day harvest festival was brought
to a close with appropriate exercises, held at 2:30 on Sunday
afternoon, in the Louchheim Auditorium. The Honorable
Howard I. James, Bucks County Senator, was patron of the
two-day celebration. Dr. Louis Nusbaum, Vice-President of
the School, Associate Superintendent of Philadelphia Public
The principal address was given by Dr. Wheeler McMillen,
editor-in-chief of the Farm Journal and outstanding American
leader in chemurgy. Dr. McMillen pointed out that the world's
post-war prosperity depends on whether the people's earned
buying power can be raised to the level of their consuming
capacity. He asserted that the consuming power of this coun-
try has never been approached.
Dr. H. B. Allen submitted the annual report of the Presi-
dent which included a digest of the reports of each individual
department. He directed the attention of the audience to the
fact that these reports are bound together and filed in the
Library for the benefit of those who are sufficiently interested
to read them.
Jerry Groff '43, of Sellersville, Pa., a member of the stu-
dent council, represented the student body on the program.
Rabbi Malcolm Stern, of Philadelphia, delivered the prayer at
the opening of the session.
Manfred R. Krauskopf, of Philadelphia, presented the re-
port of the Nominating Committee in connection with the f orty-
fifth annual meeting of the School which formed a part of the
Harvest Festival Exercises. The following trustees were re-
elected for a term of three years : Edwin B. Elson, New York
City; William F. Fretz, Doylestown, Pa.; Dr. S. S. Greenbaum,
Benjamin Goldberg, Dr. A. Spencer Kaufman, Theodore G.
Rich, Nathan J. Snellenburg and Edwin H. Weil, of Philadel-
phia. Dr. Leon Solis-Cohen, of Philadelphia, was elected an
honorary trustee in consideration of the completion of ten
years of service on the Board. Morris R. Blackman, of Phil-
adelphia, was elected to the Board as a representative of the
A special feature of the Harvest Festival was the active
co-operation of Bucks County agencies interested in rural
progress. Organizations such as the Grange, 4-H Clubs, Rural
Scouts, Future Farmers of America, Defense Council and
others participated. The exhibits of these various groups were
not competitive but were arranged purely to promote the
interests of agriculture and rural life and to represent the
activities of each individual agency.
The Farm School educational exhibits were arranged by
the department heads with the assistance of the students and
served to emphasize certain principles that are taught in the
various classes. As a further incentive to students and as a
means of promoting their agricultural training, competitive
exhibits were put on by the students themselves. Selections
of fruits, vegetables, farm crops and animals were made by
the students and the exhibits that resulted from these selec-
tions were judged by competent experts.
The animal exhibits were staged in a tent on the campus.
Farm machinery exhibits were housed in the farm machinery
building, where poultry exhibits were also on display. All
other exhibits were shown in the Louchheim Auditorium.
After announcement of exhibit awards, the exercises came to
a close with the singing of the national anthem by the entire
audience, accompanied by the student band.
The two-day program was dedicated to the late Herbert
D. Allman, of Philadelphia, and the late Louis Schlesinger,
of Newark, N. J., leaders in the work of the School for many
years, both of whom had passed away since the last annual
Allman Administration and
Farm Mechanics Building
ROSETTA ULMAN DORMITORIES
On the Death of Louis Schlesinger
Adopted by the Board of Trustees of The National Farm School
September 2U, 19U2
It is with deep regret that the Board of Trustees of The
National Farm School notes the death of
on September 15, 1942. For twenty-five years Mr. Schlesinger
has been a member of the Board and Chairman of the National
Board of State Directors of the School. His membership in the
Board was not honorary nor perfunctory. His interest in the
School was intense, active, and constructive. He never missed a
meeting of the Board when he could attend, and he often tra-
velled many miles to be present and to contribute to the Board's
Of his many activities in behalf of the School his most
important contribution was in his capacity of Chairman of the
National Board. Quietly, unostentatiously but effectively, Mr.
Schlesinger made The National Farm School known favorably
in the most remote sections of the land. He sacrificed time,
money, and personal convenience to hold conferences and to keep
appointments for the benefit of the School.
Mr. Schlesinger's services to The National Farm School were
only a small part of a busy life. He was a constructive leader
in the real estate and insurance business in his native city of
Newark and of the whole State of New Jersey. His communal
activities included trusteeship in the Union of American Hebrew
Congregations, treasurership of the Hebrew Benevolent Orphan
Asylum Society, and a lifelong interest in the Jewish Children's
Home of Newark.
More than anything else, however, the members of the
Board of Trustees of The National Farm School will miss Louis
Schlesinger's kind and genial personality and his genuine friend-
ships. There was a sincerity and a heartiness in his greeting, a
warmth in his handshake, and a fine sense of humor in his most
casual conversation. Our loss is that of a real friend.
Resolved that the formal gardens on the School campus,
where trees for Mr. Schlesinger and members of his family have
previously been planted, be designated as the "Louis Schlesinger
Resolved, That the Board of Trustees of the National Farm
School adopt this minute expressing its sense of loss in the
passing of Louis Schlesinger, and that a copy be forwarded to

AMELIA M. ABRAHAMSON
On February 11, 1943, Amelia M. Abrahamson
passed from amongst us very suddenly. She had given
loyal and devoted service to The National Farm School
as field representative throughout the entire history of
Miss Abrahamson was instrumental in securing
some of the School's first household furnishings and
through the many years was responsible for a con-
siderable portion of the School's support.
Wherever she went, she served the School not only
in the friends she made for the institution and the
funds she secured for its maintenance, but in the dig-
nity and standing she gave to the School by her own
connection with it.
Thes3 few brief words are introduced into the
records of The National Farm School in recognition of
her long and useful service and as an expression of
our sorrow in the passing of this genial and lovable
NATIONAL FARM SCHOOL
The National Farm School plants each year on its spacious
acreage Memorial Trees for the departed and Festive Trees
for joyous occasions, such as births, confirmations, gradua-
tions, betrothals, weddings, anniversaries. This practice of
tree-planting is in keeping with the custom established by the
Founder many years ago.
It serves two useful purposes : it offers a beautiful and
fitting means of keeping green the memory of those persons
or occasions we wish to perpetuate ; and at the same time of
assisting in the financial support of the School as a tangible
expression of affection for loved ones.

STUDENTS AND FACULTY RECEIVE AWARD FOR
On December 18, 1942, the students and faculty of The
National Farm School, were awarded a "Certificate of Merit"
by the National Farm and Home Hour and the Blue Network
Company for outstanding food production. The award was
made in a nation-wide broadcast with the following announce-
"The National Farm and Home Hour and the Blue Net-
work Company pay tribute to a group of young people who
are truly 'soldiers of the soil.' We salute today the students of
The National Farm School, Bucks County, Pennsylvania.
"When Secretary Wickard's call to increase production in
the food for freedom campaign came to the students at The
National Farm School, these boys responded wholeheartedly
and with the student body reduced by enlistments and war
industries from a normal enrollment of 160 to about 100 ; and
an ordinarily small faculty still further limited for the same
reasons, these patrotic workers produced this past year, with
their own hands, on their 1,000-acre farm:
Over 800,000 pounds of milk
Over 600,000 eggs
Nearly 8,000 pounds of poultry meat
Just under 10,000 bushels of potatoes
4,000 bushels of apples and other farm products
on an extensive scale.
"The National Farm School founded in 1896 was designed
to give city boys a chance to obtain an agricultural education
and these boys devote their time to practical agricultural train-
ing. Not only have they done a splendid job of producing food
but they have also made an effort to aid farmers in the com-
munity wherever possible.
"So, we pay tribute to The National Farm School, its
faculty and students and we present to them this Certificate
of Merit. With the future production of food in such able
hands as those of the young men being trained in The National
Farm School, the nation knows there will be food for America
and our Allies. The Certificate of Merit is on its way to you
and with it go the thanks of the entire nation and our fighting
Allies. The Farm and Home Hour and the Blue Network salute
you farmers of The National Farm School."

SPECIAL WAR-TIME ACTIVITIES OF THE
NATIONAL FARM SCHOOL
i^ In co-operation with the Farm Security Administration and
the Pennsylvania State Department of Public Instruction,
The National Farm School is helping to alleviate the serious
farm labor shortage in the East by training contingents of
farmers from unproductive areas from other sections of the
country, to the conditions and practices of this region. The
National Farm School is one of several institutions in the
northeast selected as a training center for some of these
•^ Evening extension classes in farm machinery for out-of-
school rural youth and for adults are conducted throughout
the fall, winter and early spring. It is planned to extend this
service to include all of the other fields of agriculture in which
the School specializes.
-^ In co-operation with the Pennsylvania Department of
Labor and Industry, the School has, for several years, trained
for rehabilitation a limited number of industrial casualties.
Plans are now^ under way to extend this service to include
training for rehabilitation of war casualties.
•^ During the Easter vacation period, twenty-five high school
boys received special training to equip them for leadership as
farm helpers for summer work on farms.
•^ A special summer course of two months' duration permits
selected high school students, not enrolled as regular students,
to aid in farm production while gaining valuable farm ex-
-^ The National Farm School is operating three demonstra-
tion VICTORY GARDENS in Philadelphia and its environs.
Competent student-gardeners are on hand to answer inquiries
and assist the uninitiated.
^ Faculty members are acting as consultants to Victory
garden growers, giving lectures and displaying model exhibits
at major department stores in Philadelphia and vicinity.
^ A leaflet of "Practical Hints for Victory Gardeners," pre-
pared by Professor David M. Purmell, Horticulturist of The
National Farm School, was reproduced in lots of tens of
thousands and made available to the public.
^ Finally, The National Farm School is prepared at all times
to adjust its program and extend its facilities to meet the
shifting needs of the War for Victory.
An opportunity for
Few city boys ever think of farming for a life career.
They may consider hundreds of different occupations, but
rarely give any thought to agriculture, the most fundamental,
especially in war time, of all vocations.
The National Farm School has specialized for the past
forty-seven years in this particular type of training and urges
city boys to consider farming as a career. The School knows
from experience that city boys make successful farmers ; that
many who were never on a farm before they came to Farm
School become practical and scientific farmers and follow that
