The department of Home Economics in the Peru State Normal School is one of the most beneficial and far-reaching in its influence. 'Phis department is fulfilling a felt need as is evidenced by the number of High Schools thruout the state that arc installing domestic science and sending to Peru for teachers.
Fourteen teachers from this course go out this year to help solve the problems in home-making which confront 93 per cent of the girls of the state. The Junior class in Home Economics which enrolled in September, 1916, was one of the largest in the history of the school.
The department is better equipped than ever before, electric stoves, pressure cooker and other conveniences having been installed this year. The equipment of the Home Economics department in the T. J. Majors Training building is modern in every respect. The sewing room is most artistically and practically furnished; Singer sewing machines, cutting tables, electrical equipment and .six full length mirrors being included in the equipment. 'I'he dining room and kitchen arc most perfect in their appointments. Nothing for the comfort and convenience of the workers has been left out.
'I'he course offered is practical, definite and esthetic in its influence, and taught by most capable instructors who give the best of their lives to the work.—A Student

Kitty years ago drawing was taught in few public schools of the United States,— probably not at all in the schools of Nebraska. The artificial copies and stiff geometric figures of that day, the landscapes with tame little ruins and dejected milestones look as quaint to us now as do the costumes of that generation. This formal drawing was superseded by courses based upon logical sequence of subject matter and these in turn set aside when a study of psychology and child nature demonstrated that drawing is not a subject for the few, but a normal means of expression which every child uses naturally. This new attitude resulted in the introduction of drawing into practically every school of the country.
Our school in the half century of its life reflects every phase of these changes. The new type of drawing was introduced into the training school in 1907 and four years later into the Normal School. Since then the department has been strengthened by the addition of new courses and the enrichment of others until at the present there is prescribed work for every student who graduates, and courses in drawing and painting, design, modelling, industrial art. art history and methods of teaching supervision which when completed entitle the holder to a special certificate in addition to the normal school diploma.
The fundamental principle of the course is the relation of drawing to life. Applying this principle several school projects have been work d out during the year. Among these was the frieze of brilliant heraldic devices painted in fresco on the walls of the German room. The poster for the pageant, the cover for the pageant book and some of the designs for costumes were also the work of these special students. Such projects demanding skill, imagination, team spirit and unflagging energy prove the temper of the group of workers with pencil and brush who ally th mselves with the department.
