It long has been recognized that the graduate in agriculture in many instances needs some forestry training. To those not experienced in the building of college curricula it would seem a simple matter merely to include a course in farm forestry in the various curricula in agriculture. However, the solution of the problem is not so simple. There appears to be a definite trend towards greater flexibility in college curricula. The individual student is permitted to elect an increasingly large number of courses to meet his particular prospective educational or vocational needs. Before courses in farm forestry are included generally among the required courses of graduates in agriculture it will be necessary for forestry educators to present sound educational arguments in support of such a program. This should not be a difficult matter. It appears more than likely that the number of graduates in agriculture who have had some training in forestry will increase rapidly during the next few years.
