Mr. Robert. Jones, of h'rauklin

els of Goldvn Prolific Hytired Seed ,
Corn and two bushels of Coker's

to be used by students in the Agri

Mr. Jones is an advocate of
good seed and it is his ambition

\ benefits and profits that< can be
| gotten from the use of better seed,
j thus inducing more of them to
j use such seed thereby increasing

We, the students of the Frank

thank Mr, Jones for these seed,
: and it is our desire to conduct
: these projects in 'such a manner
l*hat everyone seeing them will be

bring bigger profits and better
