Home Economics Celebrates Third Annual "Hec Day"
( 2017-02-09) Miller, Marjorie ; Iowa State University Digital Repository

Does the making of three or four pies stump you Mrs. Housewife?

Then listen to this: The cherry pies that were made and eaten at the third annual celebration of Home Economics Day at Iowa State on Feb. 3rd and 4th would have supplied an average family of six with pie twice a week for three years, one month and eight days. The only way of judging the number of visitors which thronged the home economics buildings on this, the biggest day of all the year "home economically" speaking, was by the number of pies which were served. Since each visitor secured one pie, and approximately 2000 pies were eaten, simple arithmetic proves that "home economics" was hostess to 2000 guests on that day. (This number does not take in the crowds that attended the physical training exhibition the day before nor the ·big vaudeville given that night at Agricultural Hall.)

"Did you see that adorable green frock at The Paris? I was so sorry that I could not try it on for they had only a size sixteen, but then I can have my dressmaker make an exact copy of the design in my size. I wear a forty-two and green is not very becoming to me, but the dress is so adorable that I can't resist having it made up for myself."

To Live to Be a Hundred Is Your Privilege
( 2017-02-09) Busse, Florence ; Iowa State University Digital Repository

These days if you aren't a malnourished child of school or preschool age you are apt to feel neglected.

The United States Children's Bureau is giving much help to the mothers of today so that their children may live long and well. We are apt to review our welfare accomplishment with much satisfaction. I hear it said: "Is not the infant mortality rate much lower now, and has not the average span of life been lengthened in the last decade from thirty; three years to forty-five years? Science surely has done much to increase the chances to live twelve years."

What Kind of Breakfasts Do You Serve?

How is your disposition at breakfast?

To start the day right, the breakfast must be right. At a successful breakfast, it is necessary to have the entire family properly dressed and ready to eat together. A "bud" cap and kimono are for the privacy of one's room and should never be worn at breakfast. Perhaps even more to be bemoaned is the "rather modern state where the lady of the house fails to arise for :breakfast and lets the man either get his own food or go down town for it. If she wishes to help spend the family income the woman should help earn that income by preparing good nourishing food and by encouraging cheerfulness to start the day right for the man of the family.
