NICHOLLS PLANS
EUROPEAN TOUR
Professor in College of Agriculture Will Leave July 18
to Study Farm Conditions
in England, and Continent
Dr. W. D. Nicholls of the College
of Agriculture is planning a sum-

mer trip to Europe, where he will
make an extensive study of farm
conditions. He will be accompanied by his son William H. Nicholls,
freshman in the Agriculture College.
Doctor Nicholls will leave this
country about July 18 and will return September 1. Southern Germany, Austria, Switzerland, and
Denmark will be visited during the
tour.
In southern Germany the famed
agricultural villages will be studied.
There German peasants live and
have their houses but their farms
are located some distance from the
village. Their plan of operation will
be carefully studied. Here as In
Austria much of the land is devoted to forest and wood lots are
managed so that a continual supply
of timber is available.
These
methods will be investigated, according to Doctor Nicholls' plans.
Terracing of steep mountain slopes
in Switzerland in order that farming may be possible will be the object of study while in the Alps. In
Denmark the cooperative method of
manufacturing
and selling dairy
products will occupy much of Doctor Nicholls' time.
This tour is expected to aid the
experiment station In Its work
amoag the rural residents of Kentucky. Some of the more successful
plans discovered in Burepe may be
introduced to the farmers of this

HONORARY

DEGREES

Rogers, "the most popular man In
America," recently refused an honorary degree
which educators sought to confer. Rogers said
that such degrees were already a Joke because
they had been conferred on many persons who
did not deserve them and that he did not propose to take a degree without working for It
when other persons spent their lives to obtain
It.
The people of American always have been
noted for their hero worship, whether their
hero be an aviator, a humorist, a scientist or
an architect, but their admiration for a man
who excells in some particular line should not
be carried to the point here they confer on
him honorary degrees which he has not earned
and which in no way are related to his field
of activity. A degree should be the reward of
study, it should not be received In any other
way.
If a person has studied in a particular
field and has contributed a great deal to the
knowledge of his subject he deserves a degree,
