One of the future problems in county agent work and in all extension work in New Mexico will be the finding of competent men and women for the positions, who speak the Spanish and English languages. Sixty percent of the state population is Spanish-American, seventy-five percent of which speak very little or no English. The only solution of the problem as the writer sees it, is to educate and train some of our own Spanish-American boys and girls for extension work... Extension work can never be developed to its fullest extent until provisions are made for reaching and serving the Spanish-American people.
