Annual Report, 1924. San Juan Agency .

Possibly the most urgent need right now of the school is an employee to take care of the school farm. It is just recently we have discovered we have a school farm. There is an excellent tract of rich and, located s one eight miles from the school, which can be developed and expanded to several hundred acres. This land is very fer. tile, do es not require irrigation, and needs but to be fe nced, plowed, seeded and cared for. On account of loc ation distant from the school, it is essential that a depend able employee be in c untinuous attend ance, throughout the entire planting, growing, and Ie rvesting season, to preform all necessary work and protect the crops. Excellent potatoes in quantities sufficient for the entire school, and hay, were raised last season with the very limited help available( Note:- These potatoes and this hay were produced solely through the pers onal activities of Principal Hashbarger who through this one item saved to the School Inore than one half of the salary paid to him.
