The Iowa Homemaker: Volume 5, Issue 10
In almost every city or town one sees old houses, or even comparatively new ones, which possess little architectural distinction, but which offer possibilities of improvement. In some cases the cost involved in making the desired changes might be too· great; in others, much could be accomplished with moderate expenditure, or the cost might be lightened by extending the contemplated changes over a period of years.
Miss Edith Pearson, secretary to the Home Economics Division of Iowa State College, passed away at the college hospital shortly before 1 o"clock Sunday, February 7, after a short illness.
The December issue of the Homemaker contained a general statement concerning the course of study which is being mapped out by a committee appointed by the State Home Economics Association. In the January issue some objectives for a First Course in Foods were presented. After the objectives have been determined the teacher must find some projects which when carried out by the class will mean the attaining of the objectives.
Perhaps one of the most fashionable types of needlework at the present time is Italian cut work. Lovely designs can be made, which are truly exquisite and charming.
