Liberal Arts or Home Economics?
( 2017-08-10) Hays, Helen ; Voss, Nancy ; Iowa State University Digital Repository

Helen Hays, a senior student in speech pathology at the University of Iowa, tells us why she chose a liberal arts school. She is a member of Mortar Board and was recently chosen honorary colonel to reign over the University of Iowa's Military Ball. After she is graduated this spring, Helen is planning to work in the East.

The specialized home economics school is more desirable to Nancy Voss, and here she tells us why. Nancy is a junior in the Department of Technical Journalism at Iowa State College and is taking her minor in Foods and Nutrition. She plans to combine writing with homemaking after she is graduated a year from June.
