107 Faculty Called for Review of Tenure Procedures in Letter to Dean Gay

PROF. CARVER IS SELECTED

TO HEAD RECENTLY CREATED DEPARTMENT OF RURAL ORGANIZATION.

NO WRITER ATTRIBUTED

Professor T. N. Carver, David A. Wells Professor of Political Economy in the University, has been offered the position of director of the newly created "Rural Organization Service" of the United States Department of Agriculture. He has applied for leave of absence from the University for the year 1913-14.

The work which Professor Carver will take up will be a continuation of the study begun last year of the marketing and distributing of farm products. The Department of Agriculture has striven to advance methods of production and to facilitate the marketing of the products raised; the present movement is to take up rural organization and co-operation to secure the best results for a community. Secretary Houston believes that in the interest of economy and of the advancement of agriculture the time has come to give particular attention to this rural organization.

Professor Carver is at present giving a course, Economics 32 hf., dealing with the Economics of Agriculture with special reference to American conditions. In case leave of absence is obtained, he will probably take up his new duties at the close of College in June.
