KEV. DR. JOSEPH KRAUSKOPF, FOUXDER 



AN APPRECIATION 

Notwithstanding the difficult days we have been pass- 
ing through, the high efficiency of the School, where 
democracy and tolerance abound, has been upheld. 

By training worthy young men in a noble vocation, 
we divert many from overcrowded professions and indus- 
tries, thus helping in our blessed America to frustrate the 
growth of anti-Semitism, now so evident in Germany. 

I take this opportunity to thank those who make the 
continuance of this institution possible, and include a 
hope for their continued and needed support. 

HERBERT D. ALLMAN, 

President.

THE NATIONAL FARM SCHOOL 

Message of the President 

HERBERT D. ALLMAN 

to the 
Thirty-seventh Annual Meeting 

of 

The National Farm School 

October 7, 1934 



John Ruskin wisely said : ' ' God is a Kind Father. He sets 
us all in the places where He wishes us to be employed. He 
chooses work for all creatures which will be delightful to them, 
if they do it simply and humbly. He gives us always strength 
enough and sense enough for what He wants us to do. If we 
either tire ourselves or puzzle ourselves, it is our own fault. 

Today, we again foregather in annual session to conclude 
official business of our thirty-seventh year, and to re-emphasize 
the importance of farming as a vocation. This, the underlying 
philosophy of The National Farm School since its foundation, is 
now encouraged by such outstanding thinkers as Prof. Albert 
Einstein, Felix M. Warburg, Rabbi Abba Hillel Silver and other 
thinkers and sociologists. They advocate agriculture as an out- 
let for the energies of our Jewish youth, and urge them and 
others to engage in hard muscle and pioneer activities, instead 
of entering overcrowded professions and industries. Science 
enables the alert farmer, by taking advantage of natural laws, 
to make the soil his servant instead of his master. 

The National Farm School justifies its existence and need 
as a vocational school. If there be occasional critics who wish 
to be just, they should measure the true value of this educa- 
tional endeavor by its accomplishments. A recent survey made 
for "The, National School Mart," shows a gross neglect of the 
nation's youth. Retrenchment in schools should not be over- 
emphasized, despite demands for reduction in budgets to meet 
new economic levels. Four billion dollars are annually spent 
upon luxuries, whereas, but slightly more than half that sum is 
spent upon public education. 



6 THE NATIONAL FARM SCHOOL 

In these days of economic strain, it is creditable to sponsors 
able to keep the doors of unendowed institutions open. The 
courage and business ability of j^our Trustees have achieved this 
desirable end during these most critical days. Aware of its 
early financial struggles and present upstream progress, I feel 
assured that by our united and untiring energy the School will 
continue to survive. Let us then calmly hope, rather than fear. 

It is the duty of your Trustees, stewards of the School and 
custodians of all funds, to render an annual accounting. The 
financial statement of operating account for the year ending 
April, 1934, appears in our year book, issued without expense 
to the School. 

Strict economy has been our motto. Nevertheless, efficiency 
in classroom, field training and domestic service have not been 
curtailed. On the contrary, important Educational and Animal 
Husbandry Departments have been strengthened and enlarged. 
Independent of these betterments, the morale of our student body 
has not been neglected. In this rapidly changing world, we 
recognize the need and value of character, spiritual and cultural 
training. 

Since the beginning of the industrial revolution, the battle 
for self-preservation has become more difficult. Our graduates 
qualify, vocationally and otherwise, for limited jobs now avail- 
able and are better equipped to compete with the more than a 
million young people annually sent forth from high schools and 
colleges, who seek jobs for which they are untrained. The 
future of our nation depends largely upon the energy and better 
education of its youth. America is moving into a "modernistic" 
scheme of existence. The problem of finding employment for 
both capital and labor is serious and must be faced squarely. 

It is difficult to prophesy perspectively what will happen 
during the next few years. It is possible, however, to briefly 
review in retrospect the result of a year's work. 

Allow me then, as liaison officer, in constant touch with the 
School's many activities, to submit the high spots of a cross- 
section survey of our essential aims, policies and educational 
opportunities. 

I shall express few opinions regarding the nation's financial 
ills or the many controversial questions relating to speeding the 
recovery of American agriculture, subjects academically dis- 
cussed by press and radio. 



THE NATIONAL FARM SCHOOL 7 

To educate, control and service some two hundred humans 
throughout the entire year involves responsibilities that require 
patient engineering-, experience and a keen understanding of 
psychology of adolescents. By co-ordination, varied problems 
are happily solved. We endeavor to adjust them intelligently 
and progressively, with an absence of fussing over details, and 
to promote efficiency and harmony. We have adhered to many 
of the traditions of Dr. Krauskopf, strengthening our foundation 
and building a structure, unassailable in its protection of social, 
educational and economic welfare. To keep abreast of changing 
conditions we, from time to time, improve our curriculum and 
readjust earlier ideals of the School. 

We shall continue to function as a clean, upright institution, 
proud of its high reputation. Parents may place their sons here 
.with every assurance that moral, physical and intellectual train- 
ing will be cumulative. The background of our student body 
is democratic. We carry on as a large, happy family and en- 
courage studious habits, good deportment, square dealing and 
a brotherly spirit of helping one another. The general attitude 
is of cheerful confidence, combined with a resolve to see things 
through on a basis of fair play. 

Pitkin in his popular book, "Life Begins at Forty," states 
a trusim when he says: "Never before has a little knowledge 
been such a dangerous thing as now\" We all know the world 
must grow more complex. Therefore, serious attention should 
be given to the difficult problem of adult reorientation, to meet 
these conditions. We are entering a new era, a labor-saving 
machine age, bringing new schedules of leisure, which should be 
intelligently used. Take agriculture as an illustration : A 
modern farmer today, with a good tractor, gang plows, harrows, 
drills and combines can, with more profit, cultivate four times 
the acreage that a pioneer farmer aided by a number of helpers 
could formerly handle. Electrical machines now milk many more 
dairy cows than can be milked by hand. Science and unemploy- 
ment will bestow even more leisure upon us. We should develop 
this new leisure to create, rather than waste — without confusing 
the art of enjoying a living with that of making a living. 

If business continues to decentralize, the drift from con- 
gested cities to the countryside will increase. More people will 
seek detached homes v/ith gardens or cultivate small farms near 
their regular occupation. They will require the counsel and 
assistance of specialists, scientifically trained in agriculture. 



8 THE NATIONAL FARM SCHOOL 

Today there is a call for men of character and judgment. 
Democracy's strongest and surest defense is education. Patience 
and restraint are important factors that foster mental groAvth 
and material progress. To achieve success in vocational pro- 
grams, it is imperative that the heart, mind and hand become 
prime partners. When combined, they enlarge and improve 
mental alertness and physical energy. Vision and knowledge are 
not products of chance, they must be cultivated by example, 
perseverance and education. They cannot be poured into a 
student — he must learn as he works. It is not the number of 
hours one puts in, but what one puts in the hours, that counts. 
The greatest assets of youth are skill and ambition. "We en- 
deavor to stimulate initiative and individualism, rather than the 
habits of group action or regimentation. Those having original 
ideas get somewhere. This kind of training is of particular im- 
portance to the independence of self-sufficient farmers, who wrest 
their sustenance from the soil. 

Though largely sustained by Jewish contributions, The 
National Farm School, since its inception, functions in the 
strictest sense on a non-sectarian basis. Its splendid equipment 
and opportunities are available to any deserving youth, Jew or 
non-Jew, wishing to train as a progressive farmer. Since the 
School's beginning in 1897, its enrollment has grown from 15 to 
185; its acreage from 122 to 1,200. School and domestic build- 
ings have increased from the initial Pioneer Hall, wherein all 
students lived and studied, to a score of modern structures which 
lend dignity to our beautifully landscaped campus. 

We operate ^n Employment Bureau to service graduates, 
placing them with master farmers at good wages. Last spring 
we could not supply sufficient help to fill all available jobs. The 
Bureau also advises those who desire to continue at post-graduate 
work or enter college. In order to gain additional experience, 
graduates are urged to work on a farm before purchasing 
their own. 

Sometimes we are asked: "Do all your graduates remain in 
agriculture?" Our answer is emphatically "No!" Circum- 
stances are sometimes stronger than intentions. Social and other 
conditions cause departures over which we have no control. 
When they do occur, we are not discouraged. Due to their train- 
ing, our graduates succeed in other vocations. They are held in 
high repute for their worth. They show a versatility in their 
chosen calling that reflects creditably upon the School. Many a 
college could well feel proud of such progeny.

None of us. is infallible ; we are not supermen and cannot 
achieve 100 per cent, perfection. Educators say: "Making forth- 
right citizens is of equal importance with professional or voca- 
tional training." Our graduates now engaged in agriculture far 
outnumber, proportionately, those following the professions for 
which they received college degrees. The crying need of our 
day is sturdy, loyal citizenship, the backbone of which is based 
upon the proper preparation of youth. A great menace of the 
time is roaming and corner lounging, due to unemployment. 
Any institution that can keep young men from drifting is per- 
forming an incalculable service to humanity. /If our School can 
help to do this, it deserves all the support it can obtain. 

Care in selecting the most deserving students from the hun- 
dreds who apply is an important factor that cannot be over- 
emphasized. We endeavor, before accepting an applicant, to find 
out whether he is fitted for precisely what the School has to give. 
Prospective students are told. The National Farm School is not 
a college, but a high grade vocational school, where courses are 
equally divided between teaching the science of agriculture, and 
actual practice on fields. Through this alternating system, boys 
learn farm theory and how to apply the knowledge gained. 

''As the twig bends, so will the tree incline." Students at 
this School, no longer under parental influence, are still malleable 
and can be changed by physical or social environment, and above 
all, by education. 

While sympathetic with problem and social welfare cases, 
we consider only vigorous applicants of good mental and moral 
standing. At times, parents or guardians seek our scholarships 
for sons or w^ards who have no serious desire of following agri- 
culture as a career. Where the purpose is to avoid or relieve 
parental responsibility, such applicants are not admitted in fair- 
ness to others, who qualify. Those who evince an inherent love 
for plant or animal life and a desire to live in the open, most 
likely become successful farmers. No one should spend three 
years training for a career he may never follow. When inter- 
viewing prospective students, we probe to learn, are they serious- 
minded and are they sure of their ability to do strenuous work? 
Will they follow through and can parents do without their earn- 
ings? Realizing a social obligation, we volunteer helpful advice 
gained from long experience in dealing with boys. We are in- 
terested in their welfare, whether they enter this School or not. 



10 THE NATIONAL FARM SCHOOL 

Parents, too, must share this responsibility. They should 
carefully study the characteristics of their sons, who in ado- 
lescence have little idea of what they want or are suited for. 
The boy must live his own life. American youth can be spoilt 
by too much coddling or direction from well-meaning, but some- 
times misguided parents, who unintentionally handicap them. 
Often they attempt too much for their children. Knowing what 
one desires is of far more importance than gaining that desire. 
Temperamental unfitness for a job forms one of the big practical 
problems of mental hygiene today. The greatest unhappiness of 
life comes from getting into the wrong occupation. 

We have the capacity, but not the means to enlarge school 
enrollment. By only a slight financial increase to cover cost of 
food, we could admit many of the eager lads whom we are now 
reluctantly compelled to disappoint. This definitely proves that 
more such schools are needed. 

A brief survey regarding the prospects of the Jew as a 
farmer may prove interesting. While today but a very small 
percentage of American Jewry is engaged in agriculture in this 
country, the number is increasing. Statistics indicate there are 
about 130,000 spread over the United States who pursue all types 
of farming. The majority, however, are located in New York, 
Pennsylvania, New Jersey and Connecticut, near the larger cities. 
They specialize in dairying, poultrying, general farming and the 
raising of tobacco. The second generation, especially those 
scientifically trained, are more successful than their fathers. 

Jews, like other races of antiquity, were originally an agricul- 
tural people, and there still remains in many a fervent desire to 
return to the pastoral calling of their fathers. For two thousand 
years, vexatious and oppressive laws divorced them from the 
soil. Inherent inclinations were not responsible for their herding 
in cities. As soon as restrictions were lifted, many began to give 
vent to their age-long urge and here in this blessed land, where 
neither race nor creed forms a barrier between man and man, 
many have engaged in the industry from the dawn of our 
country's history. 

Primarily, of course, we are protagonists of agriculture, an 
honorable and heretofore profitable calling. Today, unfor- 
tunately, due to the depression, farmers are suffering financially, 
just the same as those engaged in other industries, yet, when 
good times return, they too will again prosper. 



THE NATIONAL FARM SCHOOL 11 

Ao-rieultiiral adjustment, now rapidly taking place, and co- 
operation will put new vitality into rural life. Farming, to prove 
an .economic success, requires trained experience, patience, 
perseverance and planning, backed up by a determination to 
make good. We offer no encouragement to those lacking such 
qualifications. Those contemplating agriculture as a profession 
or vocation should be advised that there are many incontro- 
vertible factors to overcome, such as weather, soil erosion, winds, 
disease and parasites. It is my personal opinion, however, that 
the good in farming far outweighs the bad. 

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 
As an educational institute, we are unique — differing from agri- 
cultural colleges that stress science — in that we combine with 
theory the applied phases of agriculture and marketing. To 
know how to seed and plow, hitch a horse and milk a cow, are 
as necessary to successful farming as technical skill in animal 
husbandry and the science of soils. 

The mid-western drought of 1934 became a national problem. 
Records show that it was the driest in the annals of the weather 
bureau for the past seventy years. It became a tragedy for 
farmers in that part of the country. Even the most rugged 
individualists will concede that no one farmer or cattleman was 
responsible for this great disaster. Nor could any one agricul- 
turist remedy it. Its solution becomes a governmental job which 
must be carried on through many administrations, with a con- 
sistent policy of land retrenchment and reforestation. 

Notwithstanding the rather poor status of agriculture today, 
it is my firm conviction that any young man trained in this indus- 
try, in iDOsition to purchase land, machinery and stock at present- 
day low prices, will have entrenched himself in a favored eco- 
nomic position when prosperity returns. 

During the past year, a departure was made by accepting 
■ a limited number of physically handicapped men for a specially 
arranged one-year course. These students are sponsored and 
financed by the Bureau of Rehabilitation, through State and Fed- 
eral funds. The School Board was of the opinion these men 
were entitled to the benefits of this institution, to give them an 
opportunity to carry on and earn a livelihood by following one 
of the lighter branches of agriculture. They participate in all 



12 THE NATIONAL FARM SCHOOL 

social and athletic activities, improve in health and are content. 
At its inception this departure, under constant supervision, was 
experimental. After a year's trial, close observation and per- 
sonal contact, I am happy to state it is one of the finest sociologi- 
cal ventures ever made by the School. Certificates of qualification 
for that branch of farming in which they major will be granted 
at the end of their special course. 

A word of praise regarding the personnel of our student 
body. Serious misdemeanors or breaking of rules are rare. 
Student loyalty and esprit de corps are commendable. Behavior 
in Doylestown, only a mile away, is above reproach. Contacts 
with visitors are courteous, association with Faculty and fellow- 
students respectful, and their general deportment creditable to 
their good breeding and training. 

We are pleased with the School's progress during the past 
year. The organization clicks effectively and harmoniously. 
Appreciation and commendation are due and extended to Faculty 
a.nd staff, whose teaching schedules and field duties are much 
heavier than those of college professors. 

It has always been a great pleasure to work with you, to help 
deserving boys and to watch the School grow. We cannot, how- 
ever, survive upon the past alone — we must go forward or fail. 
I, therefore, make an earnest plea for your persistent support. 
By concerted energy, continued success will surely follow.

THIRTY-FOURTH ANNUAL GRADUATION 
March 25, 1934 

The National Farm School conducted its Thirty-fourth 
Exercises of Graduation on its grounds, on Sunday, March 25, 
1934, when the largest class in its history, comprising fifty-eight 
young men, received the School's Diploma at the hands of its 
President, Herbert D. Allman. Fifteen hundred persons, from 
Philadelphia, New York, and other nearby cities, attended the 
exercises held in Louchheim Auditorium. 

The Hon. J. Hampton Moore, Mayor of Philadelphia, was 
the guest of honor and delivered the Graduation Address. Mayor 
Moore, who Avas introduced by Hon. Joseph H. Hagedorn, Vice- 
President of the School, referred to the appreciation, love and 
respect in which the people everywhere held the Founder of the 
School, Dr. Joseph Krauskopf . Speaking to the boys, the Mayor 
told them that "there is more untilled soil in the United States 
than tilled soil; and there are thousands of acres east of the 
Allegheny Mountains that should be tilled. The opportunity for 
young men in agriculture is far better right now particularly in 
the East than ever before." 

In bidding farewell to the class, President Allman appealed 
to the boys to undertake to do their share in solving the com- 
plexities of the present economic conditions and help overcome 
the specific problems that now confront our Government. 
"Do not," he said, "join the unpatriotic critics who contribute 
nothing constructive, and who attempt only to destroy rather 
than build up. Co-operative action to promote the basic prin- 
ciples of organization in industry is the duty of every American 
citizen." He felicitated the class, referring to it as being "among 
the finest in the history of the School, a distinct honor to the 
School and to the community." 

President Allman told those gathered for the exercises that 
each one of the graduates had been placed in a position, an indi- 
cation of a decided uptrend in agriculture. 

Louis Schlesinger, of Newark, N. J., Chairman of the National 
Boaid of Directors of the School, extended best wishes to the 
graduating class on behalf of the 135 national directors. 

The Valedictory was delivered by Arnold V. Egerland, of 
Oreland, Pa., and the Salutatory was offered by Morris Plevinsky,

free from all taxes to be paid to the Treasurer, for the time being, for the use 
of the institution." 



Form of Devise 

ON REAL ESTATE OR GROUND RENT 

"/ give and devise unto The National Farm School, Bucks County, Pa., 
near Doylestown (here describe the property or ground rent), together with 
the appurtenances, in fee simple, and all policies of insurance covering said 
premises, whether fire, title or otherwise, free from all taxes." 



A donation or bequest of $10,000 will found a perpetual scholarship which may 
bear the name of the founder, or such name as the founder may designate; a 
donation of $800 will underwrite a student for 1 year; $2,400 for 3 years (to 
graduation). 



During the past forty years we have carried out the intention of 
the School's Founder, Dr. Joseph Krauskopf, to oflfer scholarships to 
deserving boys, who cannot afford to enter an agricultural college. This 
opportunity to major in some branch of agriculture is available to 
worthy boys from all parts of the United States. The course of 
three years comprises thirty-six months, and affords a thoroughly 
rounded vocational agricultural training. Board, room, books, labora- 
tory supplies, etc., are included. The charge to the student is but 
nominal and does not cover cost of food alone. 

The importance of character building and training of our youth 
for practical work during these troublous times cannot be over- 
estimated. No expenditure of time and effort has been spared to 
make this Institution what it is today, a school which instructs its 
students both theoretically and practically in the various branches of 
agriculture, including academic and farm machinery courses. 

The financial burden to do all this is now unusually heavy, be- 
cause of the shrinkage of subscriptions, due to present depression. 
Had the School larger endowment we would be freer to devote our 
efforts for the greater benefit of our students and offer the advan- 
tages of this philanthropic-educational institution to a larger number 
of worthy applicants. Gifts for the purpose of endowment or through 
remembrance in your will would help assure the continuance of the 
School. 

Lacking adequate endowment, we depend upon the generous 
public to help meet our budget for current expenses. Contributions 
and annual memberships are gratefully welcomed. 

Sincere appreciation and thanks are here extended by the Board 
of Trustees to the many friends who have in any way assisted the 
work of the School during the year. The continued support of those 
who believe in the value and significance of this endeavor is much 
needed and solicited. 



THE NATIONAL FARM SCHOOL 19 

FOUNDERS DAY AND TREE DEDICATION 

Sunday, June 3, 1934 

The vision of the Rev. Dr. Joseph Krauskopf, Founder of 
The National Farm School, was hailed as ''prophetic" at the 
Annual Founders Day Exercises, held on the School grounds, 
Sunday, June 3, 1934. 

A diversity of events, scheduled for a full day's program, 
proved interesting to adults and entertaining to children, and 
attracted some thirty-five hundred guests to the School's spacious 
campus. A formal program, devoted to honoring the Founder 
and his early associates, was participated in by prominent 
speakers. Rev. Julius Silberfeld, of Congregation B'nai 
Abraham, Newark, N. J., opened the exercises with a beautiful 
pastoral prayer. This was followed by an address of tribute to 
the Founder, by Herbert D. Allman, President of the School, 
who said in part : "In this changing world, prominent thinkers 
stress the importance of our Jewish youth making some branch 
of agriculture their vocation, instead of entering overcrowded 
professions. Too many have been seeking the easier jobs instead 
of working in hard muscle and pioneer activities. 

"For that reason the wisdom and vision of the Founder were 
prophetic. By the noble spirit of sacrifice, altruism and imagina- 
tion of Dr. Krauskopf he built for the past, present and future. 
He was an opportunist in service for others. 

"The dream of the pioneer has been realized. We may well 
be proud of this splendid institution, open to deserving boys, 
of any creed. The initial class of seven multiplied into many. 
Building after building was erected for teaching and domestic 
purposes. New courses of study were established. Equipment 
and land were added until the School has become national in 
scope as well as in name, a monument to the Founder and a 
credit to its supporters." 

William Henry Welsh, director of school extension activities 
of the Philadelphia public school system, who delivered the 
Founders Day Address, stated that through The National Farm 
School, the Founder had paved the way for "the new approach 
to education." He stated that some day some historian is going 
to write the history of America, as it was influenced by the great 
educational movements, and at that time this institution will be 



20 THE NATIONAL FARM SCHOOL 

given a conspicuous place among the leaders of a new kind of 
vocational training, and Dr. Krauskopf, as a typical American 
pioneer in education. 

The dedication of Festive and Memorial Trees, planted on 
the School grounds during the year and inscribed in honor of 
joyous occasions and in memory of departed friends, was a beauti- 
ful and impressive service. (List of those for whom trees were 
dedicated is given on page 13.) Rev. Dr. Louis Wolsey, of Con- 
gregation Rodeph Shalom, Philadelphia, delivered the Dedicatory 
Address and eulogized the friends of the School whose names 
and deeds would live and flourish as an inspiration to oncoming 
generations. He especially emphasized the beauty of the idea of 
planting trees to commemorate occasions of joy and congratulated 
the young people who had planted trees in honor of their con- 
firmations, birthdays and weddings. 

Other speakers included Prof. C. L. Goodling, Dean of the 
School, Rabbi Julian B. Feibelman, of Philadelphia, Louis 
Schlesinger, of Newark, N. J., and Dr. Louis Nusbaum, Associate 
Superintendent of the Public Schools of Philadelphia, who 
presided. 

Band concerts under the direction of Lieut. Jos. Prankel, 
athletic games and contests, parades, magicians, clowns and other 
entertainments were especially planned for and enjoyed by the 
large numbers of children who came to the School in groups from 
the various religious schools of the city. 

Organized tours over the School's 1,200 acres were in charge 
of the department heads, and made stops at all the stations of 
interest, such as the dairies, poultry plant, greenhouses, orchards. 
Members of the Faculty who participated and explained the work 
under their charge Avere Professors Otto A. Stangel, general 
farming ; L. M. Montgomery, horticulture ; H. G. Fiesser, land- 
scape gardening; Cecil J. Toor, poultry plants; Morris Mayer, 
greenhouses ; John C. Thompson, dairy barns ; and Harold K. 
Fleming, campus buildings. 

Refreshments and box lunches were provided by the Women's 
Committee. 

The entire program was in charge of a group of the younger 
Trustees of the Board, under the Chairmanship of Mr. Edwin 
H. Silverman.

SUCCOTH HARVEST FESTIVAL 

and 

THIRTY-SEVENTH ANNUAL MEETING 

Sunday, October 7, 1934 

Agriculture now offers a "ground floor" entrance to young 
men seeking to entrench themselves in a favored economic posi- 
tion with the return of prosperity, Herbert D. AUman, President 
of The National Farm School, declared at the Thirty-seventh 
Annual Meeting and Harvest Festival of the Institution, Sunday 
afternoon, October 7, 1934. 

The exercises, held in the Louchheim Auditorium of the 
School, drew hundreds of visitors from the New York and Phila- 
delphia areas. The grounds of the Institution are particularly 
attractive at this season of the year. Visitors were impressed 
with the high state of cultivation of the farms, and commented 
upon the many fine specimens of the harvest which were on dis- 
play in the auditorium. 

The meeting was preceded by a band concert directed by 
Lieutenant Joseph Frankel. Mr. Adolph Eichholz was chairman 
of the exercises. 

"Giant machines, which should be our servants, have gotten 
out of our control and threaten to grind us out of existence," 
said Dr. Charles E. Beury, President of Temple University, who 
was the guest speaker. "American political and economic life 
is a farce," the educator said. "We do not know how to govern ; 
but what is worse, we do not know how to be governed. Instead 
of the rampage of pleasure-seeking and orgy of speculation that 
marked the period of 1926 to 1929," Dr. Beury asserted, "the 
Nation has need of the spirit of the late Joseph Krauskopf, 
Founder of The Farm School, and Russell Conwell, Founder of 
Temple University." 

President Allman then presented his Annual Message, which 
is reprinted in full on pages 5 to 12. 

One of the unusual features was the granting of certificates 
to seven of the group of physically handicapped students, who 
had completed a special one-j^ear intensive course provided by 
the School, in one of the lighter branches of farming. 



26 THE NATIONAL FARM SCHOOL 

Dr. Mark M. Walter, Director of the Bureau of Rehabilita- 
tion of Pennsj^lvania, referred to the efforts of the State and 
Federal Governments to rehabilitate industrially the physically 
handicapped. He offered high commendations for the assistance 
The National Farm School is giving these efforts by accepting a 
limited number of such men for special, intensive practical courses 
through which they are being rehabilitated into self-supporting 
citizens. 

The Annual Report of Professor C. L. Goodling, Dean of the 
School, showed that large crops were raised during the year, due 
partly to favorable weather conditions, augmented by the con- 
certed efforts of the Faculty and student body. 

At the business meeting, which followed the speaking pro- 
gram, the Chairman announced that under the new By-Laws in 
course of preparation it is proposed that the Executive Offices 
shall be filled by election by the Board of Trustees, instead of by 
the Annual Meeting. No nominations for these offices were there- 
fore presented at this meeting. The following Trustees were 
re-elected for a term of three years : James M. Anderson, Mrs. 
A. J. Bamberger, Harry Burstein, Rabbi Julian B. Feibelman, 
Horace T. Fleisher, Elias Nusbaum, James Weintraub and 
Emanuel Wirkman. 

Joseph H. Hagedorn, Louis A. Hirsch, Charles Kline and 
Leon Rosenbaum, having served on the Board for ten consecutive 
years, were elected Honorary Trustees.
