January 17, 1929
See Original Daily Bulletin From This Date

The National Farm School is offering a limited number of free scholarships for the new term opening April 1st. This announcement was recently made by Mr. Herbert D. Allman, President of the School, who stated that the scholarship offer is open to worthy boys, from all parts of the United States, and entitles the recipients to tuition, board, room and books without cost during the entire three years’ course.

The qualifications necessary to compete are: age between 16 and 21 years; best moral character; physical fitness; completion of at least nine years of public school course, or its equivalent; and an honest interest in farming, with the intention of making some branch of agriculture a life’s occupation. This latter requirement is particularly stressed.

“Last year,” said President Allman, “a similar offer was made. Interest was so great, and so exceptional were the qualifications of the applicants, that an increased number of scholarships was made available, and those who could not enter last year were encouraged to try again this year.”

The School located near Doylestown, Pa., has its own postoffice known as Farm School, Pa. The Scholarship Office is located at 1701 Walnut Street, Philadelphia, where further information will be furnished upon request.

The Young Men’s and Young Women Hebrew Association of Paterson. N. J., with a membership of over 5,000, is planning to purchase Temple Emanu-El, adjoining the “Y” building.

Temple Emanu-El is now erecting a new temple. It is expected to be ready for occupancy by July.

The new “Y” building, dedicated four years ago, is one of the most enterprising institutions of its kind. Its activities have taxed the facilities of the building. The additional property will give added facilities.
