"Cracker Rat''----"Milk Rat"
( 2017-04-18) Nisewanger, Melba ; Iowa State University Digital Repository

That the observation of growth experiments on rats could sufficiently interest pre-school children in the need for growth stimulating foods~such as lettuce and milk-with the result of a positive response in their own eating habits, is a new accomplishment in nutrition research. The experiment carried on by Ellen Kleppe for her masters thesis, however, indicates that such projects may prove of considerable value in helping the little folks to acquire correct food habits.

Home Economics Research at Iowa State
( 2017-04-18) Iowa State University Digital Repository

Do you realize the amount of research in Home Economics that is being done right here at Iowa State College? At least 32 major problems have been completed by the graduate students in Home Economics this year. In Foods and Nutrition, nine have been completed; in Applied Art, four; in Textiles and Clothing, ten; in Home Administration, three; in Institutional Management, two, and in Vocational Education, six. In addition to these problems done by graduate students, members of the faculty have done some studies, and at least 15 minor problems have been studied by undergraduate students. The reports of re·search on this page are some of the recently completed problems.
