Research at U. of K.
Representative of Federal Agricultural Engineering Department Confers With Aggies
Prof. II. B. Walker, of the Agricultural Engineering Department, Washington, D. C, visited the university
Saturday, February 4. His purpose
was to hold a conference with Dean
Cooper and the agricultural engineers regarding the formulation of
plans for research work at this institution.
Professor Walker gave a very interesting talk in which he stated that he
had visited 44 different experiment
stations this year and felt quite optimistic over the outcome of agricultural research in the South.
"With the rapid changes taking
place in agriculture," said Professor
Walker, "the manufacturers as well
as the farmers are looking to the colleges to determine the fundamental
principles of farm machinery. We
should design our machinery to meet
tho requirements of making a quality
product and not attempt to adapt the
process to tho machine. The agncul
tural engineers must be responsible
for the methods which will make the
quantity per worker a maximum and
the cost of production a minimum."

The university, through the columns cjf The Kernel, wishes to
extend its warmest welcome to the
delegates of the Kentucky Intercollegiate Press Association. Here
you will And a friendly feeling,
and we hope that you will return to your various colleges
with a better understanding of our
university, its faculty and undergraduates. We want you to make
yourself at home during your stay
at our university.
