"Graham Praises Farm Institute: The Agricultural Institute of N.C. State University, which offeres a two-year terminal course in several major fields of agriculture and farm-related business, is 'filling a real need' in the state, Agriculture Commissioner James A. Graham said Saturday. The 265 students and many of their parents participated in the day's activities. In the institute's 10-year history, Graham said, over 700 men and women have graduated from the course. The program, he said, 'provides a very practical and factual education in agriculture. It is a course which can easily be applied to the day-to-day business of farming. It ably fills the gap between the limits of a high school education and the four years and thousands of dollars needed for a college degree.'"
