There are many reasons why colleges of agriculture should offer an unusually fertile field for scientific exploitation by the protozoologist. It seems to me that the situation is a reciprocal one. In the first place, the agricultural college and the field it serves stand to benefit by any contributions made toward a solution of the many problems relating to agriculture in which the protozoa play a greater or less part. Secondly, the protozoologist will find in the numerous branches of agriculture not only a wealth of possibilities for valuable and interesting research, but also every promise of obtaining positive results, because of the numerous and diverse activities of the protozoa.
