Tho undertaking on tho part of tho
domestic sclonco department to provide
lunch for tho students has proved very
successful during tho past week. Tho

on the lower floor of mechanic arts
hall; tho place is small and only eight
een can be served at a time. On this
account many arc unable to bo waited
upon and consequently go to other,
The lunch is cooked and served by
students in tho department, who take
this method of securing a practical ed
ucation In the art of cooking. There
are about fifty students enrolled in the
department. Besides studying the art
of cooking, they are also Investigating
tho subject of tho arrangement and
care of homes.

or dinner can be obtained when want
ed; and it is desired by the manage
ment that the impression should be

order. Changes will bo mado as It is
seen best to mako them.
At present tho department is crowd

may bo obtained.

tory of tho university that tho young
women have really had a parlor to
wljich they might invite their friends

niture is almost without exception In

tributed by the various classes in tho
women's gymnasium, and by tho wom
en of tho faculty club. Tho pictures
have been given by tho young women
of the English literature department,

as well as collectively. If any of them
who" have not yet mado a little con
tribution toward the fitting up of tho
room care to do so, they may report
to Miss Barr.
