was recently an organization in Boston of the Chicago Normal Alumni, and only a few days later at the San Francisco meeting, I met two classmates, James and Arthur Chamber- lain, who are leaders in education in different California cities, and both of them authors of series of excellent books which are already standards in their respective subjects. The alumni are everywhere, and what is better, they are everywhere distinguished by a forceful and earnest professional attitude — what may be called the true missionary spirit. What has the association accomplished. ' ' It has always been a strong support to the school, even where it has not found it necessary to act as an organization. Its members are present everywhere that opinions are being molded and discussed, and their influence has always been a factor in shaping policies and averting hostility to the school. The days of active opposition are fortunately past, but in the stirring fight in 1894, and many a time before, it can be safely said that the Alumni had a great share in bringing victory to the side of " old Normal. " The beautiful memorial window to Colonel Parker in the Normal School is due to the devotion of the Association, under the able leadership of Mr. O. T. Bright, and the mag- nificent portrait of Mrs. Ella Flagg Young, presented to the Art Institute last year, is another monument of which the Alumni may be proud. The present officers of the Association are: President — Henry W. Sumner Vice-President — Melva Latham Secretary — George A. Beers Treasurer — Lillian G. Baldwin New graduates should keep in touch with the Association and give it active support, to keep alive the old memories, to preserve the traditions, to establish a feeling of solidarity, and above all to knit closely together all the strength of the Alumni for the undertaking of desirable projects, when needed, for the support, of the old school.

Household Arts Class History The fall of 191 1 was particularly notable, for with it began a new work at the Chicago Teachers College. A few entered the first day, but many felt not only the novelty but also the real benefits of such work and soon entered the rank and file of the Household Arts Class. Twenty-four mighty young people began to work out their salvation. And ere the first year was over a startling revelation came to them. Household Arts meant not only a thorough knowledge of cookery and sewing, but just as truthfully did it include psychology, physiology, anatomy, bacteriology, sanitation, English, history, and mathe- matics. So real did this fact become that three of our number woke up one day to find that it would be impossible to graduate in two years, because of a failure to learn one of these. In. short. Household Arts came to mean a kind of industrious industry where the little group of twenty-four took pleasure trips to see a half cow cut up, or to hear lectures on milk. There was more pleasure in the lessons given in the dining-room — lessons in serving, where one group would prepare a well-balanced luncheon for the other, or probably for the instructors. During the first year, one of these was given for the latter purpose, and in the second year, there were two group luncheons and two given for the instructors. So, as Mr. Owen says, the motto of the class grew to be hospitality. The second year was particularly interesting. Applied theory in the schoolroom became the daily topic of conversation. Chemistry opened new fields for discovery and exploration. Even the faculty became interested in an especially peculiar odor which pervaded the school, i. e., pineapple ester. History gave an insight into prices, the tariff, and other laws affecting products in which we were interested. Bacteriology had its trial but merely struggled through one semester. And then came sanitation, with a trip to the plumber to see the fixtures. Once only did we lay aside these weighty problems — when we organized the class. Our president, Frances McLoughlin, was well chosen, and the rest of the officers quickly fell into line. As to the future, we know not what it shall be, but judging from the past, the class is just beginnin ' " " ' ' why the Household Arts Club shall not be an importan " . iuca- tion in the schools. failure.
