There just could not be an Iowa State Student or alumnus who does not thrill to the word, "Veishea." There is something about it that lends a delightful excitement, perhaps not unlike the word "circus" to a small boy. Veishea is a circus, a six ring one that takes every minute of the short time to see, and then is remembered from year to year.
Germs are little things but it is the little thing that counts in keeping the family healthy and happy. Many materials are commonly sold as disinfectants that do not have any germ-killing value. They merely give a pleasant odor or one suggesting cleanliness. Yet real disinfectants are cheap.

"A woman constructed the first dwelling in the United States. It was a tent of skins stitched together with sinew and waterproofed at the seams with buffalo tallow. A splinter of bone served as a needle. The woman's husband using a sharpened stone cut lodge poles- which he dragged to the home site. The Indian woman's tepee has been copied by the whites and there is no superior in Europe. Manufacture of clothing and furniture took much of the woman's time."-so says Bliss Isley in an interesting article on The First American Home in the April edition of Better Homes and Gardens.
