Hog killing and pork making on the farm have become almost lost arts in these days of mammoth packing establishments which handle such enormous numbers of swine at all seasons of the year. Yet the progressive farmer of to-day should not only provide his own fresh and cured pork for family use, but also should be able to supply at remunerative prices such persons in his neighborhood as appreciate the excellence and general merit of country or "homemade" pork product. This is true, also, though naturally in a less degree, of the townsman who fattens one or two pigs on the family kitchen slops, adding sufficient grain ration to finish off the pork for autumn slaughter.

Momodou Sabally's Memoirs of his UEP experience is a lively, readable narrative. It moves quickly and draws, or rather teases, the reader forward through three years of ups and downs in the story of the author's "coming of age" as a scholar in the context of his country's first encounter with university education at home. An absolutely compelling story of great courage, imagination, and iron-willed determination to reach the highest levels of university education. This story is a must read for anyone seriously interested in the inextricable links between higher education, individual achievement, and national development. -Dr. Michael J.
