REV. DK. JOSEPH KRAUSKOPF, Founder 



PHILANTHROPY 

The youth of today is the citizen of tomorrow. The 
nation depends upon him for leadership. His oppor- 
tunity for mental, spiritual and physical development dur- 
ing the present crisis is of tremendous importance. 

Thousands of families with broken homes feel the 
serious effect of the depression. Youth, just out of 
school, finds himself idle — there are no jobs. The promise 
of a useful vocation or career is remote. This enforced 
idleness is discouraging — it shatters morale, engenders 
cynicism and leads to dangerous results. 

To provide for the hungry is not our only obligation. 
The soul, as well as the body, must be fed. It is, there- 
fore, our essential duty to guide the youth of America 
by helping him preserve self-respect. 

Institutions that build character, encourage personal 
integrity and foster the spirit of education, merit more 
generous support now than ever before. To provide for 
this is not charity — it is sound public policy. 

This School, handicapped by reduced income, is 
struggling to meet this greater demand from hundreds 
of worthy applicants — boys who are eager to make farm- 
ing their vocation. Giving them their chance to lead 
useful lives is true philanthropy. 

This, then, is an earnest plea for your support. 

HERBERT D. ALLMAN, 
President.

THE NATIONAL FARM SCHOOL 

Message of the President 

HERBERT D. ALLMAN 

to the 

Thirty-fifth Annual Meeting 

of 

The National Farm School 

October 16, 1932 



Today The National Farm School approaches another mile- 
post. It marks the thirty-sixth year of a philanthropy which 
involves a tAvofold objective : To give worthy boys, who cannot 
afford to enter college, a practical, comprehensive training in 
agriculture, and to stimulate morality and good citizenship. 

This Institution, a Jewish contribution to agriculture, accepts 
students, irrespective of creed. It endeavors to train the heart, 
head and hand — to teach the majesty and honesty of labor — the 
value of personality. It has earned a significant place among 
leaders of social thought and action, and merits respect and 
support. 

The School has continued to progress since the "passing of 
Dr. Krauskopf, its founder. It is our aspiration to further its 
growth and usefulness, which are the result of his original plan- 
ning and vision. 

A Board of Trustees and Officers serves the School through 
various committees, of which Education, Admissions, Finance, 
Budget and Women's Domestic Committees are most active. The 
President, liaison officer between School and Trustees, is in daily 
contact with the Dean, administrative staff, executive office, and 
sits at Faculty m.eetings, where School problems are adjusted. 

One must visit the School to appreciate its buildings and 
harmonious surroundings, to meet Faculty and students, and 
those who manage the daily routine and provide for the health 
and comfort of all throughout the year. Modern classrooms, 
dining halls and dormitories face a beautiful campus. The Kraus- 
kopf Memorial Library, with a competent Librarian in charge, 
contains almost 20,000 volumes. It is a forum for student re- 
search and study. 



6 THE NATIONAL FARM SCHOOL 

Notwithstanding financial limitations, due to curtailment of 
income, all educational and agricultural departments function 
satisfactorily. With strict economic budgeting and faith in the 
generous impulses of subscribers, we hope to "carry on." To 
cut student enrollment, because of temporary hard times, means 
defeatism, as only the cost of food can be saved. The overhead 
remains practically the same. 

I wish to congratulate the Dean and the heads of the various 
farm departments for satisfactory cash returns, notwithstanding 
present low price levels, and to extend thanks to our entire staff 
of workers, to the Board of Trustees and committees for their 
splendid co-operation and encouragement during these difficult 
times. I fully recognize the quality, courage and value of their 
helpfulness, and ask them to accept my sincere gratitude, with 
hopes this spirit may continue. Appreciation is also extended 
to our National Directors, the State of Pennsylvania, Jewish 
Federations, generous subscribers, and members of the Philadel- 
phia, New York, Chicago and Pittsburgh Chapters of the Alumni 
Association. 

Since the School's inception, an annual report has been pub- 
lished, free of expense, giving friends and State Directors an 
opportunity to review our activities of the year. As the Presi- 
dent's message is included, it is quite proper to take a retrospect 
of achievements, to give thought to the future and to submit 
information that may prove useful. Permit me, therefore, to 
speak on the subjects of Education, Agriculture, Student Selec- 
tion and Finance, four basic factors that insure the effective 
operation of the School. I shall include a running critique of 
their value and importance in relation to good school government. 

Education 

Education is democracy's strongest and surest defense. It 
cannot be poured into a student. He learns as he works. A 
widespread development evidences progress. We are constantly 
giving greater emphasis to advanced agricultural subjects and 
student deportment. The wealth of many families has disap- 
peared, but good character endures. Young men of the coming 
generation must earn success by their o^vn efforts. 

There is a call for men of character and judgment. Sound 
thinkers, able to co-operate, who base their decisions on logic, 
are needed in every walk of life. Education in the proper direc- 
tion helps supply this demand. While the habit of work is

Horse or Tractor — the student handles 
them both. He knows all that can ail the 
former and what to do about it, and the 
latter he can take apart and put tog-ether 
again. 



THE NATIONAL FARM SCHOOL 7 

important, a proper balance is vital. Initiative and under- 
standing rather than the mere capacity to work patiently and 
blindly on a job are essentials for success. Youth must be alert 
and watch for the breaks. When they come, he must make the 
most of them. There is no saturation point in education. Gradu- 
ates are urged to continue their studies after leaving school. 

We endeavor to place our graduates on the farm, and en- 
courage them to work as employees before they purchase their 
own land. Some drift back to the city due to reasons beyond 
our control. Nevertheless, we record a higher percentage of 
graduates in agricultural pursuits than is shoAvn by many other 
vocational schools and colleges. Our graduates have been given 
every opportunity to master their vocation during a course of 
thirty-slix consecutive months, equal to four years' time at college. 

In a recent address. Dr. James E. Russell, of Columbia 
University, concisely expressed the ideals of this Institution 
when he said : 

"The establishment of vocational schools throughout the 
country at which boys with a high school education could be 
trained as intelligent leaders in the agricultural field, would do 
much to remedy the present agricultural crisis. An intelligent, 
progressive and vocal leadership, now 'sadly deficient,' com- 
pared to political, commercial or industrial leadership, is needed. 
Agricultural leadership could not be expected to develop from 
universities, because their graduates are in most cases 'narrow 
specialists.' Even graduates of agricultural colleges do not 
usually become farmers, acting rather as research workers and 
civil service employees. Students graduating from vocational 
schools obtain a certain facility for leadership, but without the 
necessary farm training, they, too, become voices in the wilder- 
ness." 

Dr. Russell suggests schools which would include such sub- 
jects as economics, marketing, co-operative trading, insurance 
and law as related to notes and mortgages. The National Farm 
School teaches all these subjects,* in addition to soil culture, 
agronomy, dairying, animal husbandry, biology, poultry raising, 
horticulture, landscape and vegetable gardening, farm mechanics, 
woodworking, forging, history, English and ethics. 

Rural sociology also has a place in our curriculum. Proper 
living on the farm under all conditions is important. In dormi- 
tories and dining-room, cleanliness and deportment are stressed. 



8 THE NATIONAL FARM SCHOOL 

Menus and food are scientifically supervised. The School 
physician, Dr. Allen H. Moore, gives weekly lectures on applied 
hygiene, physiology, anatomy, personal habits, and first aid in 
relation to farm life. Spiritual, moral and ethical guidance is 
afforded through weekly non-sectarian services, under direction 
of Rabbi Julian B. Feibelman. 

Lectures on law for the farmer are given by David I. Bur- 
stein, member of the Bar of the Supreme Court of Pennsylvania. 
These three instructors volunteer their services as members of 
the Faculty. 

Two' new educational features have recently been intro- 
duced — a roadside market, which gives students experience in 
methods of disposal of farm products, and a formal garden, 
designed b}' Mr. Horace Fleisher, a member of onr Board, which 
increases our facilities for practice in landscape gardening. These 
improvements were made by the students, under supervision of 
Instructors Fiesser and McQudgg. 

In these daj^s of progress and keen competition, adolescents 
require a comprehensive training and education, which many 
parents are unable to give. Few have sufficient knowledge re- 
garding such problems. Others cannot refrain from too much 
spoiling and coddling. Institutions like The National Farm 
School give background, fitting boys to fight the battles of life. 
This School — where carefully selected lads live, study and work 
together, where fair play, democracy and physical growth are 
stressed — helps to stimulate personality and manliness. 

Such intensive training broadens the student's outlook. It 
fits him for service to school and country. While working with 
nature, he subconsciously learns to understand and serve hu- 
manity. Capacity for inquiry -and concentration are also stim- 
ulated. 

We are fortunate in having a Faculty whose technical skill 
and ability to teach practical farming are augmented by interest 
in boy welfare. The success of a school depends more upon 
intellectual intimacy between teacher and student than upon 
acreage or equipment. Wherever enrollment is limited — as it is 
in our School — students come in closer contact with their in- 
structors. Thus, the essence of true education is furthered. Re- 
sults of good teaching manifest themselves in the lives of stu- 
dents long after their school days are over. 

Graduates of The National Farm School, whether in agri- 
culture, professions or commerce, continually voice their sincere 



THE NATIONAL FARM SCHOOL 9 

appreciation for the intangible benefits, in addition to the agri- 
cultural training, they received here. 

The recreational side of student life is well attended to. It 
is our desire to foster clean athletic sports and health-giAdng 
activities. Undefeated teams, under the supervision of Coach 
Samuel B. Samuels, are a credit to the School. 

The student band of forty pieces, directed by Lieutenant Jos. 
Prankel, Philadelphia's leading bandmaster, has a reputation of 
which the School is justly proud. Students are taught both the 
theory and practice of music. Concert and dance music, fur- 
nished by the student orchestra, is a social asset at many School 
functions. 

A fully equipped gymnasium is the School's winter play- 
ground, and serves for dances and moving pictures. Students 
not interested in athletics or music find relaxation in literary, dra- 
matic and other cultural societies. These varied activities tend 
to bring out the best that is in every boy. 

The School spirit is satisfactory. Students find representa- 
tion through their own counsel government. Without impinging 
upon the Faculty, they endeavor to share responsibility by help- 
ing to maintain decorum and harmony. 

Agriculture 

There is a permanence about agriculture. NotAvithstanding 
social and economic changes, food in America is readily available 
year in and out. For centuries man has farmed and always will, 
to supply a constant need. 

Farming is a creative industry — a noble profession. He 
who tills the soil, who loves his work beyond the mere desire to 
accumulate wealth, does more for humanity than other crafts- 
men. Without the farmer, a dependent world would go hungry. 

The welfare of many millions of our population is directly 
concerned with agriculture. The present economic stringency 
has not affected this good earth — it has not shrunk in area nor 
productivity. In times of distress the farm is still the Nation's 
surest anchorage. Thousands of erstwhile farmers, young men 
cind women, who lost their city jobs, are trekking back to the land. 

Farm relief is a live international issue. The farmer at 
present is not in the happiest mood. Hard hit before, he has 
been in greater travail during the economic dislocation. 
America's progress is dependent upon his financial success. 



10 THE NATIONAL FARM SCHOOL 

Prosperity does not begin in big cities. It begins six inches 
below ground. Give the farmer buying power and he starts the 
village storekeeper to buy from factory and city. Intelligent 
farmers have earned, and are entitled, to a living profit above 
cost of production. AVe, loan the farmer mortgage money, but 
he cannot meet his obligations unless he receives a fair price for 
his crops. With his buying power restored, he will be in the 
market for billions of dollars' worth of farm machinery, auto- 
mobiles and other merchandise. Notwithstanding recent strikes 
for higher prices in the Middle West, the average farmer is not 
a radical, even though he is restless during an orgy of specula- 
tion. While the urban population was seemingly growing rich, 
he was going deeper into debt. Now he contrasts his independ- 
ence with the millions of city unemployed who are without food 
or shelter, and is more content. He has not lost his job nor his 
home. He is not an object of charity. He is self-sustaining. 

The outlook of a master farmer is encouraging. The scope 
of educational expansion for his products is constantly broad- 
ening. A wider market spread, beyond the food consumed at 
table or elsewhere, will develop. Industry, through creative 
chemical research, will substitute many farm products as basic 
materials for those formerly supplied by forest and mine. 

Too many American farms have been foreclosed. I contend 
that with more schools like this, intelligent leadership in the 
agricultural field would be engendered and scores of eager lads 
now turned away disappointed would have their chance. The 
shift from city to country is significant — an indication that the 
panic has taught many that we live by the land. We cannot all 
live by manufacturing and selling to each other. 

There is considerable discussion as to Avhether untrained 
urbanites can succeed on the land. Opponents predict defeat 
on account of lack of farm experience. They point to the eco- 
nomic danger of increasing the already large farm surplus. They 
call attention to the frequent failures of enthusiastic rainbow 
chasers, and flatly discourage the idea as impracticable. Pro- 
ponents claim that abundant farm literature, short college courses 
and government counsel in selecting farms are available; that 
sufficient food for sustenance can be successfully raised. They 
are thinking not so much of crops for marketing, but rather in 
terms of earning independence and maintaining self-respect. 

To the overly enthusiastic, we advise caution. The complete 
change of environment, hard work, perhaps loss of capital and

other disappointments should be evaluated before one makes 
the venture. Knowledge and skill necessary to succeed on the 
farm cannot be learned in 'a day or a year. 

Student Selection 

Discretion regarding student selection must be carefully 
exercised, as applicants greatly exceed the number we can admit. 
Fitness of those most deserving is determined in the order of 
registration, qualifications and economic condition. Those who 
can afford to enter college should do so. The National Farm 
School is a vocational institute. Its yearly courses are divided 
between teaching the theory of agriculture in classroom and 
laboratory and actual work on the farm. By this alternating 
program students learn how to apply the knowledge gained. 

The School is not a playground nor resting-place for the 
opportunist or " try-it-once " type. The proof of our careful 
selectivity is a low student loss. 

The importance of proper selection cannot be over-empha- 
sized. A study of the type of education applicants are best fitted 
for is essential. Those entering and failing to meet our require- 
ments will have displaced worthier applicants. 

We advise each boy to give serious thought to his choice of 
a career. The fact that farming may seem to appeal to him is 
not in itself sufficient. No yardstick is available as a guide. 
Each must answer the question for himself. Parents, too, should 
realize their responsibility in this matter. We caution them 
against undue influence regarding determination. The boy must 
be the judge — it is his future, not theirs, that is under consid- 
eration. 

The Admissions Committee judges the most worthy candi- 
dates, whose applications have been on file a year or more. Prior 
to the sitting of this Committee, applicants and their parents 
are interviewed by the President, who closely studies their quali- 
fications. Personality, high school standing and mental attitude 
are considered. We determine whether or not the family can 
do without the boy's earnings. Character and home conditions 
are investigated. Physical condition is measured in relation to 
strenuous work and long hours required on the farm. If not the 
"farmer type," we direct them elsewhere. All students are ac- 
cepted on probation. If they fall below our standards, they are 
dropped. No boy should spend three years preparing for a voca- 



12 THE NATIONAL FARM SCHOOL 

tion he cannot master. We desire only those who will become a 
credit to themselves and their alma mater. 

Finance 

Financial problems of unendowed institutions are always 
difficult. From its earliest days, the School has had to struggle 
to make ends meet. With enlargement of scope, the task becomes 
greater. A school cannot function on hope alone. A generous 
public must be convinced that giving worthy boys their chance 
is enlightened philanthropy. In these days of universal lack, 
smaller institutions are apt to be forgotten. Surely, any school 
which develops responsible citizenship and trains students for a 
healthy living should be encouraged. 

A balanced budget is the foundation of stability. To meet 
new economic conditions, we reluctantly reduced salaries, 
doubled duties of teachers, rearranged domestic departments and 
trained students for dining-hall and dormitory service. Thus, 
we wiped out last year's deficit of $30,000, taught students self- 
help, and preserved efficiency and enrollment. A further reduc- 
tion of overhead to keep step with diminishing income is most 
difficult, and we, therefore, make an urgent appeal for financial 
assistance. 

World economic conditions following inflation and deflation 
of values have been far from satisfactory, yet there is much for 
which to be grateful. Fear and loss of confidence tend to pro- 
long our distress. Resumption of sensible buying will start the 
wheels of industry and help the unemployed. When things look 
dark, we overlook our many blessings. We are a strong, ener- 
getic people of many millions, living in a land of plentj^, a coun- 
try rich in bountiful crops and productive mines. 

How bring about recovery? A thorough recasting of our 
economic and political system is necessary. While our democracy 
has been sound and stable for over a century and a half, it 
should be strengthened by reducing the high cost of government. 
Nor can we aonsider our national problems without contem- 
plating those of international concern. Recovery will be de- 
layed until all nations are released from crushing burdens which 
affect the free flow of capital into commerce, and until the ques- 
tions of finance and armaments are favorably settled by world 
co-operation. 

A shorter work day and work week, requiring less time to 
earn a living and giving more time to live, will spread employ- 



THE NATIONAL FARM SCHOOL 13 

ment and tend to regulate the power to produce and capacity 
to consume. Fi<2;ures recently published by the Census Bureau 
show that the displacement of manpower by machinery is not 
as great as it appears. A demand for modern necessities shifts 
workmen from one industry to another, but employment per- 
centages remain nearly stationary. Mechanics draM'n to the 
automobile, radio and aviation industries almost balance the dis- 
location of labor formerly employed in textile, piano and other 
factories. If industrial leaders find ways to shorten the average 
working time, at fair pay, the keylog of the jam in which the 
people of every nation are now caught may be removed. On 
many farms the old gray mare is again returning to the plow. 
With the low cost of feed and advancing tax on gasoline, many 
farmers find horsepower more economical than the machine. 
This means the employment of more manpower. 

Ever since the late war, things American have been on a 
gigantic scale — prosperity as well as adversity. This condition 
has made it difficult to compare the gravity of this depression 
with those of the past. The modern social organism is very sen- 
sitive. Public opinion is more susceptible to shock. An ab- 
normal prosperity makes it harder to face adversity. We feel 
the present crisis deeply, more so than those who lived in days 
when men were not so tender-minded. It hits us harder. 

We must overcome false standards of living, which led to 
our undertaking to gain by speculation more than a legitimate 
income from honest work and industry. When the financial skies 
again clear we should keep our heads by observing rules of 
prudence and caution. Right thinking and courage, comparable 
to those of the pioneers -who built this great Nation, have been 
valuable lessons to us, as shown by the fortitude and patience 
of our people during the past three years of affliction and travail. 

Let us strive to check these recurring depressions. Reserve 
funds should be accumulated during prosperous years to provide 
for proverbial rainy days. Uninformed speculation, inflated 
credit, excessive installment bujdng and over-expansion during 
boom times, should be discouraged. Improved business indices, 
shorter working periods, output control and a return to the 
earlier principles of industrial thrift should be encouraged, under 
the guidance of a National Planning or Control Board. Honest 
and fearless leaders, capable of framing sound public policies, 
should be drafted for service. Sensible co-operation, faith in our 
country and one another, will set in motion beneficial forces which 



14 THE NATIONAL FARM SCHOOL 

may extend their impulse throughout the world. When rehabili- 
tation follows, it will develop a higher type of mankind. I pray 
we may be given clear insight and strength of purpose to con- 
summate these ends. 

In conclusion, I again stress the needs of The National Farm 
School. Its continued success depends upon financial support, 
Avhich, in turn, rests upon the giving power of the public. Your 
g-enerous aid, when encouragement is so urgently needed, will b' 
most helpful toward the preservation of this educational and 
character-building institution. 

It has been the earnest endeavor of your President to dis- 
charge the duties of his high office with fidelity and efficiency, 
to do his part in helping to forward the desires of the Founder 
and Board of Trustees. The mill cannot grind Avith water that 
has passed over the dam — nor can this Institution survive alone 
upon its many years of traditional success. We must dedicate 
ourselves anew to supply enduring energy and persist in build- 
ing wisely upon the foundation which made the School possible. 
By resolute effort, we hope to prove our stewardship and to merit 
wider moral and financial support. 

We have survived many storms, we have overcome other de- 
pressions, and we will weather this one. When the clouds pass 
we will again sail through smooth seas of prosperity. Let us 
then banish fear and face the future with courage and optimism.

THE NATIONAL FARM SCHOOL 15 



At a special meeting of the Board of Trustees of 
The National Farm School, held April 20, 1932, tlie fol- 
lowing- Memorial Minute was passed with profound sor- 
row : 

We record, with deep sadness, the death of our 
beloved friend and associate 

MORRIS A. KAUFMANN 

on April 19, 1932. As a member of the Board of Trustees 
from the very inception of our Institution, he was an 
ardent believer in its cause and ideals. He gave to the 
School concrete evidence of his life-long interest in its 
welfare, and rendered invaluable service in its upbuilding 
and success. 

Morris Kaufmann was a dear friend of every member 
of our Board. AVe shall sadly miss his beloved com- 
panionship, his helpful interest and the charm and sim- 
plicity of his personality. AVorthy as a man of con- 
structive ideals, his was a nature that always reflected 
the gentleman, and that characterized his modest and 
useful career. AVe mourn his passing and the void that 
his taking away leaves in our midst. 

To his beloved wife and family, in this dark hour 
of their deep bereavement, we extend the condolence and 
sympathy of the members of the Board of Trustees, 
Faculty, Staff and Students of The National Farm School. 

Resolved, That these Resolutions be inscribed in 
our Minutes, be published in the Jewish press, and a copy 
sent to his bereaved wife.

COMMENCEMENT 

Sunday, March 20, 1932 

Tlie Thirty-second Class was graduated from The National 
Farm School on Sunday afternoon, March 20, 1932, when thirty- 
nine members of the Senior Class were aAvarded diplomas for the 
completion of the three-year course. 

Prof. C. L. Goodling, Dean of the School, presided. Hon. 
Charles Grakelow, of Philadelphia, was the guest speaker and, 
in a brilliant address, admonished the graduates not to be afraid 
of hard work if they Avould achieve success. 

The President of the School, Mr. Herbert D. Allmau, in his 
annual farewell message to the graduates, told them the attain- 
ment of great wealth or fame should not be their paramount 
incentive or objective. "Not for a moment do I discourage ambi- 
tion, which is essential and praiseworthy," he said. "Compara- 
tively few, however, greatly distinguish themselves in business 
or professional careers, but thousands find happiness in the more 
humble paths of life. 

"We are passing through a great depression. It is true, we 
may have less to live on, but we have just as much as ever to 
live for. The real values of life are unshaken and solid. The 
financial crisis may shatter fortunes and slow up business, but 
character is beyond its reach. It may take from us what we 
had, but it cannot affect' what we are. If this grave period of 
distress and unrest teaches us broader service to humanity, then 
the sacrifices made will have been worthwhile." 

The Salutatory was offered by Jess Elson; the Valedictory 
by Leo Libove. Robert Goldstein, Class President, made tlie 
"Presentation of the Hoe" to the President of the incoming 
Senior Class. 

Diplomas were awarded by President Allman to the follow- 
ing, who had passed the School's requirements for graduation:

22 THE NATIONAL FARM SCHOOL 

FOUNDER'S DAY 

Sunday, June 5, 1932 

Founder's Day, in tribute to the memory of the Founder, 
Dr. Joseph Krauskopf, was observed on Sunday, June 5, 1932, in 
connection with the Thirty-fifth Annual Spring Exercises of The 
National Farm School. 

The gathering took place in a grove of ancient oak trees, 
facing the beautiful lawns and gardens comprising the School 
campus. 

Rabbi Julian B. Feibelman, of Philadelphia, was the guest of 
honor and speaker of the day. In his "Founder's Day Ad- 
dress" he made a stirring plea for a return to the soil and a 
spiritual rededication. 

He decried the overdevelopment of the machine, and stated 
that the supremacy of man over the domination of the machine 
is absolutely necessary for a return of better times. The exist- 
ence of humankind is the first) thing to be taken into considera- 
tion today, instead of so much high-powered machinery. Ma- 
chinery must be controlled, in order that the life blood of our 
country does not turn to oil and grease. He paid a glowing 
tribute to The National Farm School, "one of the outstanding in- 
stitutions of the land," and also to its Founder, Dr. Joseph 
Krauskopf, and pioneer civilization in general. 

An annual feature of this occasion is the dedication of trees, 
planted during the year in commemoration of festive occasions, 
birthdays, anniversaries, and the like, as well as for departed 
friends of the School. Each tree is permanently marked with a 
placard, bearing the name of the one in whose honor it is 
planted. The list of trees planted during 1931-32 is published 
on page 21. 

Mr. Drue N. Allman, of Philadelphia, eminent horticulturist, 
delivered the Tree Dedication Address. 

Adolph Eichholz, Esq., Chairman of the Board of Trustees, 
presided, and greetings and welcome to the large audience of 
several thousand visitors were expressed by Herbert D. Allman, 
President of the School. 

Band concerts, before and after the speaking program, were 
given by the uniformed student band, under the direction of 
Lieut. Joseph Frankel.

NATIONAL FARM SCHOOL LEADING THE WAY 

Speaking the other day before a gathering of guests and students at The 
National Farm School in Pennsylvania, Mr. Herbert D. AUman, the Presi- 
dent, said : "Those who master a vocation will find larger and more profitable 
fields for service than the ever-increasing number of university graduates 
majoring in already overcrowded professions." 

Here is a thought that is penetrating the consciousness of the world today 
more than ever before. Youth has sometimes sought education as a means of 
escaping from the environment of work or surroundings that seemed to hold 
no promise of betterment. Education invariably led toward certain spheres of 
endeavor. But, as more and more young men and women have graduated into 
professions already crowded, the question has arisen as to what shall be done 
with knowledge laboriously and, perhaps, expensively acquired. 

The answer is obvious. It is not only the professions that need educated 
men and women. Every line of human endeavor has need of the enlighten- 
ment and the uplifting influence of education. 

Such an idea was the propelling influence behind the tireless efforts of 
Bishop Grundtvig, who laid the foundations for the establishment of the 
Danish Folk High Schools which have exerted such a beneficent effect upon 
Danish life. He saw the Danish peasantry enshrouded in the darkness of 
ignorance. Those who did arise from this darkness left agriculture behind. 
Those who remained were those with little or no learning. 

After Grundtvig came Kristen Kold, the son of a poor shoemaker, who 
revolted against current educational practices, and saw in Grundtvig's ideas a 
justification of his own beliefs. Some indication of Kold's methods and ideas 
can be gained from the story that is told of him. Walking one day he met a 
farm boy, and asked him to join his school the following winter. 

"What good would it do me?" the boy asked. "Can I become a teacher 
or preacher by attending?" 

"That I cannot promise," Kold answered, "but if you come, I can wind you 
up so you'll never stop going." 

It is said of the Danish Folk High Schools that they have helped to lift 
Denmark's rural population from mental and economic serfdom to a level of 
freedom and prosperity that no other agricultural population has yet attained. 

Perhaps that is what is needed now in education in America. Not a 
training of boys and girls for certain select callings and professions, but rather 
"to wind them up so 'they will never stop going." To educate them, not to 
go to new fields, but to carry to their own familiar circles and environments 
the enlightenment of higher education. With this idea inculcated more gen- 
erally into the thought of youth, more and more vocations would be freed from 
narrow limitations, and the whole fabric of the democracy strengthened and 
lifted. That such ideas are being considered is increasingly evident. Such 
institutions as The National Farm School are leading the wa^^ — Christian 
Science Monitor. 



26 THE NATIONAL FARM SCHOOL 

ANNUAL MEETING AND HARVEST FESTIVAL 

Sunday, October 16, 1932 

The Annual Meeting and Harvest Festival of The National 
Farm School were held in the Louchheim Auditorium on the 
School grounds, Sunday, October 16, 1932. 

The progress and usefulness of this Institution Avere demon- 
strated by consistent enlargement of Faculty, curriculum and 
student body, and the high position attained in education and 
philanthropy during the thirty-five years of the School's existence. 

Mr. Louis A. Hirsch, of Philadelphia, a member of the Board, 
presided. Present economic conditions, as they affect the farmer 
and farm life, formed the keynote of the addresses. Hon. Theo- 
dore Rosen, Judge of the Municipal Court of Philadelphia, the 
guest speaker, stated that though, with all others, the farmer 
faces many difficulties, there is still a security on the land that 
the industrial worker cast adrift at a time of business recession 
lacks. He felt that there is no distress on the farm comparable 
to that in the cities today. 

Mr. Herbert D. Allman, President of the School, submitted 
his Annual Message, reprinted in full on pages 5-14. He 
made a special plea "for more generous support at a time when 
encouragement is urgently needed for the preservation of the 
School as a vocational and character-building institution," stat- 
ing that "a generous public must be convinced that giving 
worthy boys their chance is enlightened philanthropy." 

The Dean of the School, Prof. C. L. Goodling, reported that 
' ' scholastically, the School had a most successful year. There 
seemed to be more serious thought and application among the 
students in their endeavor to take advantage of their oppor- 
tunities, evident in much better work than in any previous year. 
Student organizations functioned better than usual, their member- 
ships were increased and programs enlarged." He referred to 
"a reorganization of finances, in which the Faculty, staff and 
domestic help co-operated very enthusiastically, and accepted 
salary reductions in a spirit of helpf ulnesis, " stating, "we were

thus able to cut our operating budget very materially, but despite 
drastic reductions our income, unfortunately, continues to shrink, 
as this unendowed institution is dependent mostly upon public 
subscript ion for support." 

The annual election of officers and members of the Board 
resulted as follows : 

President, Herbert D. Allman; Vice-President, Joseph H. 
Hagedorn; Treasurer, Isaac H. Silverman. 

Trustees whose terms had expired Avere re-elected for three 
years, as follows : J. G. Boardman, Wm. H. Fineshriber, Joseph 
H. Hagedorn, Julian A. Hillman, Maurice Jacobs, Louis Schles- 
inger, Mrs. Arthur K. Stern, and Isaac Stern. 

The following new members were elected : Frank G. Bins- 
wanger, Julian B. Feibelman, Judge Theodore Rosen, James 
Weintraub, and Emanuel Wirkman. 

Roy A. Heymann, Leon Rosenbaum and Philip Sterling, 
Trustees who had served for ten consecutive years, were placed 
on the Honorary Board. 

Interesting exhibits of the products of the various farm 
departments were on display, and the large auditorium, where 
the exercises were held, was beautifully decorated with flowers, 
fruits and vegetables raised by the students. 

Lieut. Jos. Frankel, of Philadelphia, directed the student 
band in several exceptionally well-rendered selections.

34 THE NATIONAL FARM SCHOOL 



ATTENTION OF FRIENDS AND PATRONS! 

In order to keep down costs, we have departed from 
our former custom and have omitted the list of indi- 
vidual contributors, feeling assured our friends and pa- 
trons will approve this procedure. 

The Trustees of The National Farm School take this 
means of expressing sincere appreciation and thanks to 
the many friends who have contributed moneys and ma- 
terials, or otherwise assisted the work of the School dur- 
ing the year, including those who made possible the issu- 
ance of this book, without expense. 

A larger sharing by our friends in the support of 
this worthwhile endeavor is much needed and solicited. 
The financial burden of The National Farm School is ex- 
tremely heavy, because subscriptions from many of its 
former generous friends have been greatly curtailed. 

The importance of character building and training 
of youth, the citizens of tomorrow, cannot be over-esti- 
mated. This institution not only prepares its students 
for a useful and honorable calling, but affords them 
board, room and other necessities during their three-year 
course. It thus also helps relieve the economic condition 
of many poor families.

Chairman, Board of Trustees.

MAP RACK 

MANUFACTURED BY 

CHARLES S. JENKINS 
LANSDALE - PENNA. 



THIS RACK is unique in construction and the 
iiijiny uses to which it may be applied. As a de- 
vice for preserving, and having for instant use a 
number of large maps, it cannot be surpassed. 

For filing blueprints or tracings in such a 
manner that they may be found in an instant is 
one of the strong points of this rack and any one 
employing high-salaried men cannot afford to be 
without one. In schools and colleges they are in- 
dispensable to all who have used them. City and 
Borough Engineers find th^em useful, as well as 
public and private libraiies, churches, and Sunday 
scliools. They are used by Railway and Telephone 
Companies; by the Street Railway, Gas, Trust 
Companies, Standard and other Oil Companies, 
Publishing Houses, and many business offices where 
time is money, and to do without a Jenkins' 
Manifold Revolving Map Rack would be a positive 
loss. 

They are extensively used by the U. S. Gov- 
ernment in the Executive and Judicial branches; 
and in the Agriculture, Treasury, Army, Navy and 
other departments.
