Give Your Wardrobe Nine Lives
( 2017-05-24) Overholt, Ethel ; Iowa State University Digital Repository

"It's smart to be thrifty" is a well known and appreciated slogan for coeds on any campus where clothing must be selected not only for its appearance but also for suitability and wearing quality.

Calling on a Kitchen
( 2017-05-24) Cooley, Lydia ; Iowa State University Digital Repository

Variety, they say is the spice of life-and life in the Martha Logan Test Kitchen of Swift & Company is indeed well spiced with variety! Hams, poultry, roasts, steaks, fancy meats, cheese, butter, eggs, ice cream, shortening and soap, are all part of the days work.

Making Friends Under Ten
( 2017-05-24) Schweiker, Virginia ; Iowa State University Digital Repository

One need not take courses in child psychology or spend time studying in order to make friends with and influence children. As sincerity is quite necessary in winning adult friends , so it is in making friends with children. Children readily detect any studied effort to please them and are perhaps among the first to notice sham or pretense, for their experiences have trained them to watch for the first signs of insincerity. Conversely, one should not be too stiff with them, for they are interesting individuals well worth knowing, though you may have to make the first few advances. Informality and sincerity are the two major points to remember in dealing with children.
