This Book Tells You How To Do Home Economics Writing, The Iowa Homemaker

The Iowa Homemaker

You need to know how to write. Don't reply, "I just can't write, I haven't got the knack; besides why should I have to know anything about it?" It won't change matters at all.

You're going to be a full-fledged home economist soon, so you see, you do need to know how to write.

Mrs. America Expects Perfection From You, Amelia Sansom

The Iowa Homemaker

Mrs. America expects plenty from us as home economists. All of us who have been in close contact with homemakers for any length of time know that their faith-or maybe more accurately their hopes-as to what we can do for them sometimes seems to know almost no limits. I can well remember the amazement of a staff member of one newspaper home economics department when a voice on the other end of the phone said, "Say, can you tell me what to do to keep a 3-months-old baby's hair from turning red?" Fortunately few worry about this problem.

How Do You Rate As A Roommate?, Mary Alice Halverson

The Iowa Homemaker

Before you came to college, you made up your mind that living with a roommate was going to be wonderful. You knew you wouldn't be content living alone. You'd get fed up talking to yourself and talking back to a radio soon loses its charm. The only answer, of course, was a roommate. The college sent you her name and you probably spent hours composing a witty, friendly letter to her. But now, after seveeral weeks of living together, you're not so sure that the next nine months will be as swell as you'd hoped. You ...

The Iowa Homemaker

in the year eleventy-seven thousand B.C., a prehistoric man chased a fair cave lass up a few glaciers and around a couple of mountains, at that, so the story goes, was the origin of the sport called track. All Clyde Caveman got for his efforts was the dubious honor of fathering the human race. But born in all men is the urge to excel, a competitive spirit, and Clyde was no exception. Put together these inbred characteristics and you have the most ancient of sports, track and field.
