New York Tribune Declares Browning
Clubs Are' Not All-8ufficlent.
A propos of the article on women's
training appearing recently In the Ne-
braskan, the following on the matter
of domestic science may bo of In
terest: No other study breakB more vio
lently with old ideas of what a uni
versity should teach than does the
study of housekeeping. But only a
superficial observer can jest at thiB
"frill." Every well read American
woman knows the poor showing that
her sisters make as housekeepers
when compared with English, French,
and German women. She recognizes,
too, that the old excuse of "higher
idealB" and "superior culture" will not
exonerate her. Not all the Browning
'Clubs In tho world will over put an
end to housekeeping; they may shift
tho work from one person to another,
but this only makes the problem one
degree more complicated by add
ing the double task of getting ser
vants and' supervising them. And tho
foolish scorn of housekeeping dis
played by many women haB helped
mightily to make women of the work
ing classes avoid the despised occupa
Some people may feel that, although
domestic science should bo taught, Its
place is not In our universities. In
reply to this, two things are to bo
Bald: First, only the great universities
can" give "domestic" science tho preBtlgo
It spreiy needs. And in tho second
place, tho training of domestic' science
experts can be carried on 'properly
only where there is opportunity for
work on a -large scale. We hope the
ydung women of America will crowd
the new laboratories to the doors.
