Handbook for County Agricultural Extension Councils 1967.
Kansas State Univ., Manhattan.
A handbook for county agricultural extension councils, 1967, traces the history of the organization, examines its purpose and duties, presents the committees and their work, states the criteria for the selection of agents, outlines the responsibilities of these agents, and gives a resume of relevant national and state legislation. The Smith-Lever Act, which was approved May 8, 1914 and which was expanded from time to time until its combination into a single law in 1953, is presented with a congressional definition of extension. Details of the County Agricultural Extension Council Law include: (1) aid of extension councils; (2) conditions under which aid is granted, county appropriations made, budgets approved, and tax levies sanctioned; (3) the operation of county agricultural councils and executive boards (election, program plans, meetings of councils, notice, employees, oaths of board members, bonds of board treasurers, tenure of office, meetings of boards, vacancies in boards and how filled); (4) duties of county treasurers; (5) duties of the executive board secretary; and (6) money and property of county farm bureaus.
