THE MEAN NUMBER OF PERIODS REPORTED FOR PRESENT PROGRAMS WERE (1) FARM ENGINES AND TRACTORS, 29.4, (2) WOODWORKING, 21.8, (3) MACHINERY, 17.4, (4) ARC WELDING, 17.4, (5) ELECTRICITY, 14.3, (6) GAS WELDING, 10.6, (7) COLD METAL, 9.2, (8) FORGE, 8.9, (9) FARM PLUMBING, 6.5, (10) STRUCTURES, 5.8, (11) THE FARM SERVICE CENTER, 4.6, (12) FARM PAINTING, 4.6, AND (13) FENCING, 3.4.
