Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - July 23, 1914, Lethbridge, Alberta DOING SETTLEMENT WORK AMONG A BIG CITY'S FOREIGN POPULATION To Assimilate the New-Comers Apparently Almost a Hope- less Task.

In ilkeman- ner, familiarity with now economic condition's, a hew'standard of living, i a totaHyy'new; :way at things, and class of society Is of educative value. It is a mistake to enter social service with the idea of bestowing, rather than of receiving, benefits, of giving and not gaining a point of view.' Settlements arc immensely popular with boys. Tn certain .foreign 'dis- trlcts the swarms of children on step and street suggest a Hebrew prolific virtue rivalling French Canada. The phenomenon ia explained by the fact .that owing to the still scandalous height of rents, .moat houses must commodate two lo four families, -.No child-will, stay'-cooped In a dwelling the front-room1 of which must servo as bedroom, while meals are con- sumed 'in the position ot moat street car passengers. His healthy curiosity, which would .otherwise seek ''satisfaction on the streets nnd at' the nicluro shows, is attracted by the Rood-fellowship ot the settlement, wJiero -lie -meets .with a courtesy and gentleness not always forgotten.

HIGH SCHOOL GIRLS Go Into Series of Homes Where They are Taught by House- wife and D. S. Teacher. _ -OUSD'VWVLS ot Holly. Colora- do are a canny lot, and eA ample well followed by women of other section of Amer- ica who have reached the limit' or their patience in combatting the do- mestic service problem. Out, !n Holly the community house- wives and the school in te resin are combined to te-ach tlie girls of the community the arts of the home. Instead of having the operations ot cooking, etc., conduct- ed in a school building and without other than academic results, the Holly method of teaching: the girls to be (jood housewives is to have their in- struction take place in the homes of Holly. Under the direction of a domestic science teacher and with the mis- tress, of the house concurring-, the girls work out their domestic science problems in a fashion that has di- rect practical results highly benefi- cial to the households visited, be- sides beluff of the greatest educu tioual advantage to the girls. Tlio High School girls are divided into four domestic science clnsse's, according to their place in- tlie school- There are as many subdivisions of these classes as are necessary to the proper handling of groups. Meet in the Homes divisions meet once or twice a week at the various homes in the city, and the girls cook, sew, and do other household work such as washing dishes, Vsweeping, and dusting A definite outline of; tile work to be dune is given to the and also to the mistress of in orSer that siie'lnay have 'the proper ma- tcrinls" and- utensils 'ready "for- tlis uss ot the girls, who do aliythVwork and leave the house with everything -in Its proper place and "wijli all the dishes washed, dried, and put away. As one of the concluding features the course six of the girls prepare and serve a light, luncheon. 'to six or seven other girls, the outlay of .mo- ney being limited. Not only the preparation and serv- ing of the luncheon, but- also the manners and conversation of hos- tesses- and tjuests are carefully ob- served and criticized, as the function offers; an opportunity for instruction in the social graces.1 The girls visit the grocery stores to buy food, the meat to learn to distinguish between the different cuts of -meat, and the furniture store to learn how to furnish a home so as to the nion'jy go as long a way aa possible.
