Since the beginning, progress has been marked by change. Far-seeing men have reached out for new
methods to best solve their problems, discarding ideas that have outgrown their usefullness. The history
of Home liconomics reveals a like development.
In the early days, the idea prevalent among the majority was that Home Economics was teaching
girls to cook and sew. Stress was laid on the fact that all mankind, paricularly men could be ruled
through their stomachs by a beautiful lady clad in her home-made dress. A brain was considered inconse-
quential. All girls who failed in other things were shoved pell-mell into .1 cooking or sewing class and
expected to make good grades.
The change has come slowly and has exaeted great labor on the part of teachers and leaders of
Home Economics. Today the girls who stand ahead in clothing classes, stand ahead in Mathematics,
Iinglish, and other so-called cultural subjects.
A good clothing student learns how to make a dress so that she may competently judge any
costume home-made or otherwise. She buys wisely and systematically and she correlates her knowledge
of clothing with civic, political, and social affairs.
Home lfconomics has come into its own as a trainer for efficient home-makers, the biggest job that
Woman can find today. The world is no longer proud to boast that its women are too dumb for any-
thing but plain cooking and sewing.
The girls in the picture above represent a group, who in learning to construct a garment, learn
many things unsuspected by the casual observer or one unlearned in the ways of Home Economics.

For the past three years Oak Cliff has won the first prize of one hundred dollars. This year, 1929,
we were the happy recipients of both first prizes. Miss Alma Lena Fuqua, a first year pupil, won the
We wish to thank Miss Morrison and the girls for the effort and energy expended in bringing these
honors to Oak Cliff. Without the advice, encouragement, and co-operation of Miss Morrison, it is
