The Iowa Homemaker: Volume 41, Issue 3

What a day! I met Lois Marra and Jan Waselkov in Chicago, and we boarded the 10:30 a.m. train for Cleveland. The train took such a long time to pull out of the station that we thought we'd have to push it. I noticed a girl in front of me get on with a hat box, coat, various packages, and a large suitcase. I knew she must be going to the American Home Economics Association Convention, too; so I introduced myself and found she was from Texas. When I thought of all the other girls I'd meet in Cleveland, the train couldn't go fast enough.
