Northern Nut Growers Association Report of the Proceedings at the Second Annual Meeting

Book cover
President Morris: The meeting is called to order and I will first askProfessor Craig to make a few remarks on behalf of the College Directorand the President of the University.Professor Craig: It is my privilege and pleasure to welcome therepresentatives of the Northern Nut Growers' Association in this, theirsecond annual meeting, to the New York State College of Agriculture. Iregret exceedingly that Director Bailey, who has been avoiding out ofstate engagements this winter quite generally, made one about two monthsago for this day, about a thousand miles away, which makes it absolutelyimpossible for him to be with us. He regretted this very much, and askedme particularly to impress upon you the idea that he was most anxiousthat this Association should meet here, and that all the facilities ofthe College of Agriculture should be placed at your disposal, for thepurpose of making your meeting as profitable and as pleasant aspossible.President Schurman, whose time at this period of the year is muchmonopolized and who is by previous engagements occupied very completelythis morning, has asked me to say to you that he hoped to be able tocome over and join us informally some time during the afternoon. I wishthen to impress the thought that, although the official representativesof the University and College are not with us, they have not forgottenthis meeting. As a member of the Executive Committee, in charge of thesessions, I have made up a tentative program for this morning for thepurpose of starting the meeting off; and as the President willundoubtedly tell you later on, this program is subject to revision andchange according to the convenience of the members. It is proposed tooccupy this morning with regular program subjects, and it has beensuggested that this afternoon we take a couple of hours' leisure whichwe may use in examining the exhibits or in viewing the University, ifyou care to consider that an exhibit worth while. It will be ourpleasure to furnish guides for those who desire to make an excursionaround and through the University buildings.Let me say in conclusion that I hope you will make use of theopportunities and facilities that are at your full disposal. TheDepartment of Horticulture is located on the second floor. I would likeyou to make that office your headquarters, and make use of our clericalforce, and such facilities as are available, to the fullest measurepossible, so that your visit will be pleasant, as I am sure it will beprofitable.President Morris: The next order of business will be the report from theSecretary-Treasurer, and the report of the last meeting.
