Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - June 17, 1914, Lethbridge, Alberta COLLEGE DROPS DOMESTIC WORK Famous American College for Girls Has Abolished the Housework Schedule. if A FAILURE Royal Garden Party For Children at Craigleigh Canada's AntifStiftrage Leader Beet Home-Maker Is Woman Trained Mind, Says Holyoke President. THE famous old American girls' school, Mount' Holyoke has abolished domestic work. por seventy-six years every student on tlits campus has been obliged to Bhoulder.a part oC the household work of tho institution. Upon the fresh- men who enter In- the uutumn oi J8H no such requirement will bo laid Tlio president trustees or Mount Holyoke have found that the domestic schedule is Interfering will 'the academic work of the college, that it Is defeating- Its own economic ends and that it Is 'ar-HtUe or no educa- tional value. S It by "the' establish iment of co-operative dormitories, by ail increased opportunity of self-sup- 1 port for the students who need it Sand by a more carefully specialized f freedom in the carrying; out. of the I academic President :llary E. Woblley: believes that- those came ends which .were served in the original establishment of a domestic schedule are nowiliest brought about by its abolishment. When Lyon founded "Mount Holyoke Female Seminary" seventy- i six years ago, she laid down, us a I basic requirement, the'rule that the Tvork" of the college dormitories should be divided among the college girls Slio did this for two reasons: sh little money could attend tho semi nary, and. at that time domestic ser vants -wero exceedingly bard to fim jin-wmil. New England. The twc things dovetailed. The girls them j selves did the work. j" The history of domestic work ii Mount Holyoke offers an interstint parallel to other phases in the histo of the last- century's .civilization Much as the moat interesting part o household manufacture has left th home, the most Interesting features o j domestic activity perforce college. 'tho demahds of "aca i demlc'education grew -wider and mor insistent, it became apparent 'tha i something must be given up or shirk j edt' S The Best Home-Maker ft SIDE 'from- its financial and i practical Assistance in Mary Lyon's day, tho benefit of the domes- tie work in Mount Holyoko has al- ways been a matter of its Miss Woolley says. "It has stood for democracy among IIE. Tho sys- tem had advantages, but we will gain j more than we lose by giving it up- What was natural then has become Impossible now, with our many dor- mitory halls, large campus, and 300 students. Gradually more and more of the Interesting and important work pE the- household had to be dropped. 1 If setting the table interferes with the college work, the table must bo EOt by some one else. 'believe that the average college i girl has a deeper homo feeling1 than i tiie average girl who doesn't go to college. I believe that she values her I home in a different, and more vital, I way. And even in a woman who llvos, after college, tho strictly professional life, I believe that that very thing makes the domestic appeal important, offers the domestic side of life as a r relaxation and a pleasurable inter est. "There Is no shadow of danger that tho training of the college girl for i home-malting will suffer from the i of domestic work. Our col- It-go ideal Is "to send girls out from i Mount Holycko equipped for a broad- cr, deeper, higher life, whatever kind of a life it is. If a girl Is roiiily edu- cated here, her life is that, wherever niul however she lives it. The best home-maker is the well -balanced, -well -rounded woman. Kiiu is the wo- man whoso mind Id trained, who abic to meet and to master thln whether or not she has had practicu: training in household and 1 want to repeat that our domestic wo.rk has never been she Ifa able to meet life: she can fict Hie practical details easily enough."
