Domestic Science and Art

      The Domestic Science department has had another successful year. The noon lunch has bee the big feature of the year's work. We doubt if many schools of the size of Waukee can boast of a cafeteria so largely patronized, and where such a variety of well-cooked dishes is offered at such a nominal price. In spite of the attention given to this phase of the work, none of the problems incident to this department have been neglected.
     The early part of the year was devoted to millinery, the elementary principles of the art being studied. Each girl made for herself a hat, doing all the trimming and designing herself, under the direction of their competent instructor, Miss Pearl Sims, after which a demonstration was given before a regular meeting of the Parent-Teacher Association, to the delight of all those present.
     The St. Patrick's Day dinner given to the faculty by the members of the department was an event to be remembered, and showed the careful training the girls had received, not only in planning and preparing a meal of this sort, but in serving it as well.
