The new administration building and mechanics building were dedicated at the National Farm School this afternoon. Dr. Stephen S. Wise was the principal speaker. The annual message of the president of the school, Herbert D. Allman of Philadephia, was also delivered.

The buildings which were dedicated were the gifts of the late Abraham Erlanger. New York philanthropist, who died last week. They were erected at a cost of over $70,000.

A new memorial gateway and a system of interior roads were also dedicated today, when the Harvest Festival was celebrated. It was the thirty-second annual celebration at the school.
