With the opening of the school. year, the Home
Economics Department was able to move into its. new
quarters. 'Th'fs is a thing long hoped forand was hailed
with great delight as it puppliied a much.needed require-
ment; for the work had long outgrown its cramped
.- quarters. ; I
, q In spite of the pouring rain onMonday and Tuesday
i the 28th and 29th of September,. the wagonsand men
from the Agricultural Department assisted';in moving
the equipment of the Plain .Sewing, Dressmaking and
, Mfiinery from Duval Hall. This gave three rooms more.
to the, Academic Department,which ,were immediately
occupied by it.' ...
' 'The Domestic Science equipment was moved from.
.the three rooms occupied in the basement of Gibbs Hall.
These quarters .were renoyateka.ng*,given to the Music

tor's office, and facing are the large rooms occupied
'by the Dressmaking, and Plain Sewing Divisions.
The second floor is given to the Domestic Science
Divisions, containing a large kitchen laboratory,' a
small model kitchen, practice dining room, reception
room, and practice bed room. The building is so co:ir
.structedas to secure an abundance of light and air.

ing purposes as well as a large coal range. The plumbing
fixtures are of highest quality and have been installed
in accordance with modern plumbing specifications."'

Economics Department have been planned with the
thought of giving the students high' ideals of home
life as well as a pleasant, elevating.and instriftive
course of study. '
Home Economics 'Department
AV: ...
Domestic Science and Domestic Art are terms that
are applied to the lines of work here grouped under
Home Economics. The term is not satisfactory but is
/used, becauseit is nmre generally understood to in-
clude a fuller :range of subjects than either of the
others"' Home Economics may truly be said to be an
application of the sciences to the practical needs of
life. All of the sciences which pertain to living find
an importifit place in such curriculum. Thus Physi-
ology, =Anatonmy; Chemistry. Physics, Bacteriology
and Hygiene are given place along with foods and their
uses, 'Cookery, General Science, Serving, Millinery,,
