I I I A Check on Could you expect to rear a fine trotting horse or a pood steady farm animal if you sent the beast In its early outh to a man who trained a stableful stock? Can you exif fancy pect your boy to go through the ordinary rural high school and have him ("stay hitched" on the farm? These propos.it ious are Identical. The average county high school holds up idfflils ' and teaches topics that will necessarily ' lead the hoy to sigh for a city career In the learned professions, so called. Are you and I to blame? Of course we are. It is only necessary for the oarent, the taxpayers, the everyday folks who hold the purse strings to say: "Here, we have had enough of an education that Is so old that It Is musty an education that is all books. Give children an education that flta i aiir them for life here at home." This new education that will fit peo ple for life Is coining, but It Is coming too slowly In the country. Our very best young blood is being siphoned out Df the country and into the city. The cities do not need this fine new blood; the country does.. It is quite easy to sny that the cry Is rising, "Back to the farm." But it Is not at all easy for the city man to ;o in fact, the city man, the man bred and born In a big city, can hardly go back to the soil with any degree of certainty that he will succeed. He lacks the technical part of farm work hat comes through dally contact with live, growing things, that contact which the country boy has had since Hie day he first began to notice things. If these statements seem at all too strong simply pick up the Kentucky Kducational Directory of 1911'. Turn to the list of county high schools on page 34 and run through them. Out 3f nbout ISO approved high schools 111 are classical or English high schools ana oniy tnirry-si- x are scieuiinc nign schools. Just so long as our country boys are pushed through schools that are classical In their tendencies just so long will our rural population drift cityward, for their education has developed them most carefully for that life IF YOUR BOY IS TO FARM TRAIN HIM FOR A FARMER. IF YOUR BOY IS TO BF. A PRO FESSIONAL MAN TRAIN HIM IN THAT DIRECTION.
