. ing opportunity to reach in a few minutes any part of the city. The
` ‘ campus is laid out in walks, drives and lawns, and is planted with achoice XH
variety of native and exotic trees and shrubs, to which additions are am
constantly being made. Two and a half acres forming the northeast Hm

voted to the field sports of the students. PY
About three-quarters of a mile south of the campus, on the Nicholas- M
ville pike, is the Experiment Station farm, consisting of two hundred fol

` of field crops, dairy tests, fertilizer tests, fruit spraying tests; in short, WU
_ · all the scientific experimentation of a thoroughly organized Station. The pm
front of the farm is pasture and orchard. The rear portion is divided W
off into two one-tenth acre plots, for convenience in making crop tests.
