' THE COUNTY HOME
: DEMONSTRATOR—
! One was right and one was wrong
One Board provided for a county
demonstration agent and the new
Board rescinded the order, now which
' := li/rht and which is wrong— we don't
know?
l!ut it looks as if we licet! a demon
stration agent for the homes as well
as for the county. When a home de
monstration agent does work in an
1 entire county and when this work is
. i;dded up it amounts to more than a
* 1.300 salary. We are truly . orry
' that the new Hoard did not see fit
to let the order of the old Hoard
' stand.
