Uniquely Yours, Jan Wheeler

The Iowa Homemaker

Did you ever have that feeling that the Christmas cards you sent all had the wrong addresses on them and were being returned - and actually, it was just that your friends had chosen the same box of greetings as you had - and you were receiving the same type that you had mailed?

Fall quarter is nearly at an end, and most of us can look back on it as being a very profitable one. This is certainly true of Home Economics Recruitment Committee. In case you're wondering just what Home Economics Recruitment is, we are a committee of girls, a branch of Home Economics Council, whose main purpose is to promote home economics as a field of study and to interest and inform people of the many opportunities in home economics. Our program is divided into two main parts - the week-ends program and our off-campus program.

When George Washington's mother served Lafayette mint julep with "spiced gingerbread" on his return to America in 1784, a flavor filled the kitchen which was to last for centuries.

It's safe to say that in the life of a co-ed, there is no adequate substitute for coordinated sweaters and skirts. The all-occasion ensemble is back this year, but with some changes. Pine green, sapphire blue, and garnet red are some of the choice colors, meant to brighten a Monday morning or to fit your "happy-go-lucky" feeling which signals the approach of another week-end.

Discover People As A Resource, Helen R. Lebaron

The Iowa Homemaker

People are the University's most valuable resource. We tend to think first of faculty members when we make such a statement, and that is as it should be. However, there are two other valuable resources in our College of Home Economics that are frequently overlooked - our eight thousand active Home Economics alumnae, many of whom have distinguished themselves in the profession and in community life; and our present student body, consisting of some 1,500 undergraduates, 60 graduate students, and 27 international students from thirteen different countries.

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 ...

"Instant" Palace Is Rare, Sharon Sherman

The Iowa Homemaker

The honeymoon is over, and where do the bride and groom find themselves? Unless they're a Cinderella couple- a fairy-tale prince and princess with a ready-made palace - they find themselves faced with the problem of furnishing their new home. This home may be a house built just for them; but, more likely, it will be a small apartment or a two- or three-room bungalow on some college campus. Wherever and whatever it may be, this will be the beginning of what may someday be a house planned for their needs and preferences.
