"The New Farmers of America is a national organization of Negro farm boys studying vocational agriculture in the public schools throughout the United States. Organized in Virginia in May 1927, with a few chapters and members, it has expanded until now it numbers some 950 chapters and over 20,000 active members in 1944.

The New Farmers of America is a very fascinating organization for the high school boy and advisor alike. The organization offers its members experience in a number of activities; however, the writer has found no study that was made with the express purpose of establishing definite procedures in teaching N F A in a regular program of vocational agriculture.

A. The Purpose.

The purpose of this study was to find satisfactory procedures for teaching N F A in a regular program of vocational agriculture.

B. The Scope.

This study was made in the Vocational Agriculture Department of the Luling Rosenwald School. There were 25 boys enrolled in the two classes and each class organized a class chapter. All students in the department were members of the general N F A chapter. The time limit of this study was one school year. The age-grade distribution of the boys enrolled in the department is shown in Table I.
