Home Economics Gives
Home economics, a field of study
which is both practical and the-
oretical, is attracting more young
■women as a career in this age of
push-buttons, dial-astitch sewing
machines, and deep freezers.
At Tarieton State College, home
economics is more than a course in
the mechanices of household oper-
ation, it provides a clearer insight
into the complex business of home
management. It assists young wo-
men in purchasing and preparing
the most nutritious foods available
and it teaches new home skills
which make life easier, more en-
joyable, and morei profitabis.
It is some what paradoxical that
sis housekeeping becomes easier
through the use of modern ap-
pliances, it also beomes more com-
plex. Because of this, the subject
of home economics includes a host
of special studies that grandmother
. never learned and probably thought
to be impractical.
Nutrition, principles, of design
textiles, food preparation and serv-
ing, home planning and furnishing,
pattern' design and clothing con-
struction, are only a few of the
subjects the home economist must
The variety of occupation open
to young women with college train
ing in home economics includes
teaching, fashion designing interior
decoration, home products testing
Other fields are food consultants,
home furnishing experts, public
health service, consumer experts,
home demonstration agents, youth
work, and fami'y counseling.
But above all else, the most im-
portant use to which training in
home economics can be put, is its
application us a wife and mother.
Tarieton State's home economic
department, headed by Miss Mat-
tie Walker, offers one of the most
complete two-year courses in home
economics' to be found anywhere'.
The field of study has for many
years been popular with young
women, both as a career, and as a
course which will help them as
housewives while providing- them
with a well rounded education.
Miss Walker, who holds a
Bachelor of Science degree from
Texas Woman's University and a
Master of Arts degree from
Columbia University, has taught
at Tarieton State since 1920. She
is a member of the American Home
Economics Assn. and the American
Assn. of University Women. Miss
Walker; in addition to her teaching
duties at Tarlaton has served as
judge in many local and state

Shapelier Shape Forecast"
For Coeds This Season 35
Fashion, like the latest scientific
developments and the world sit-
uation, is getting more complicat-
ed each season and harder to keep
tabs on. Previews of the styles
for the coming season are a neces-
sity, for coeds who wish to con-
form to fashion standards.
The fashion look this season, ac-
cording to MADEMOISELLE,
features a "higher waist, higher
hem, higher shoes, and shapelier
shape." The chemise look is taboo
and that should be a encovrag-
ing to the masculine population.
Conservative coeds who perfer
conventional waist lines at the
waist line and hem lines that con-
ceal the lower limbs below the
knee — well, they're practically
out of luck. For the shape this
year will center around the
trapeze, the empire, and the harem
For the benefit of readers not
up on the latest, this brief glos-
sary bf fashion terms will be of
help to your
Trapeze: it has that cone' look,
with the softly flaring, skirt that
falls from a point "just below the
bustline, Empire: this dates. back
to the Napoleon era when Jose-
phine made the very high-waisted
loolc so-popular—-especially the
high waist with the very low neck-
line: Harem: Interesting name,
isn't it, and it looks just the way
it sounds. The harem skirt is a
bouffant bubble that is the most
feminine-looking look yet.
Now that you are up on your
terms, let's take a look at the rest
of the surprises fashion has in
store for you. What about hats,
popular fabrics, shoes ? -
Hats are floppier and shaggier
this year and it appears that the
bonnet look will dominate the hat
world. Bright fabrics in blues and
deep greens are especially good
this year, as are paisleys and melt- !
And you are going to be shod
in T-strap pumps and quaint ox-
fords, which will be found in
bright reds, blue, deep greens, and
topaz. You will really look Bohe-
mian if you wear the socks in the
new long lengths that vary ffom
calf length to the leotard type.
Well, there you are. — youi".
fashion forecast. Perhaps many of
these trends will never catch on at
TSC, but we shall at least, know
how the other half dresses.
