Friday evening will be devoted to a presentation and discussion of rural folksongs by Mrs. Rose Huff Morgan, wife of Professor O. S. Morgan, of the department of agriculture, Columbia University. The last session on Saturday morning will deal more specifically with the problems of rural education and county school administration.
