This survey of land-grant college education is divided into five sections, published separately as follows: Part I: History and Educational Objectives of Land-Grant College Education; Part II: The Liberal Arts and Sciences and Miscellaneous Subjects in Land-Grant Colleges; Part III: Agricultural Education in Land-Grant Colleges; Part IV: Engineering and Mechanic Arts in Land-Grant Colleges; and Part V: Home Economics in Land-Grant Colleges. In this section (Part II) such subjects have been brought together as could not be as readily classified under agriculture, engineering, or home economics. In addition to the study of the liberal arts and sciences, in relation to the technical fields, there is also included a treatment of the subjects of agricultural economics, rural sociology, industrial journalism, military training, physical education, general educational extension, and education in the negro land-grant colleges. The following 13 chapters are included: (1) The liberal arts in relation to the land-grant colleges (George F. Zook); (2) The sciences in relation to undergraduate land-grant college curricula (Charles E. Marshall); (3) The sciences in relation to graduate work in agriculture (A. R. Mann); (4) The sciences in relation to engineering education (Richard G. Dukes); (5) The arts and sciences in relation to home economics education (Emeline S.
