WHO ARE ENTITLED TO ITS BENEFITS?
Girls and young women who have the right views of life,
and who are willing to accept the means of self-help which the
Home provides are invited to make application for a place in
the Home. Baptists have several good schools and colleges in
Texas, and we are building others, but nearly all, if not all, will
agree that too little has been done to help the girls and young
women of small means to get the benefit of these schools and
colleges. The most of them would be as well off, so far as their
obtaining an education is concerned, if these schools did not
exist. Many poor boys work their way through college, and in
the nature of the case it is easier for a boy to do that sort
of thing than it is for a girl. The boy can "batch it," or go into
a home and do the chores for a family, neither of which is practical
for a poor girl while in school.
COST OF LIVING IN THE HOME
The girls pay six dollars per month, which should be paid, $30
at the beginning of the fall term, and $30 at the beginning of
the spring term in February. No deduction will be made for absence
during the term, and money paid for board will not be
refunded unless the management decides that it is necessary for
the girl to leave.
Each article of clothing must be marked with indelible ink.
Articles required to be brought by each student are as follows:
3 sheets, 4 face towels and 3 bath towels, 1 pillow, 2 pillow
cases, 2 quilts or one pair of blankets, 6 table napkins, 2 aprons,
overshoes and toilet articles. In order to make the rooms more
attractive such things as floor pillows, pictures, calendars,
rugs, etc., may be brought if the girls so desire.
Laundry can be done in the Home, or at a cost of from
50c to 60c per dozen pieces in the city.
For all expenses other than living expenses, such as tuition,
etc., consult pages 43 to 47.
