years has incorrectly appeared to be solely in terms of tion says Louise Koscnfehl Iowas stale home economies ex tension leader Iowa Slate college But wonderful as modern homes are the greatest change has1 been not in tiic actual physical change of the home but in the role American homemakers are assuming in their communities the nation and the world Miss Rosen folds tribute to Iowas homemakers came as a part of recognition of National Home Demonstration week focusing at tention upon the rural homemaker and the changes for living she lias brought about for her family as a result of talcing part in a vast educational program in home economics More than 3 mil lion homemakers have been active participants in the program dur ing this past of them Iowa homemakers Perhaps tiie most significant compliment that can come the way of these alert homemakers Miss Rosenfeld continued is that many lownswomen who have never had the advantage of home demonstration studies are today seeking such help Home econom ics extension work is also beini considered for the families of workers in industry What has happened in the half ccntury of working with rural homemakers is that though their programs were started and have continuously been built around answering the fundamental prob lems of food and shelter the vision of homemak ing has far exceeded this she added Few homemakers hereto fore had thought that they were having a very wonderful time out of life just keening house Now they know that the role of home making is a vital one in building for a better world tomorrow If we have shared in making homemaking important to women that is the realization of home eco nomics extension work she added Iowa homemakers and the wom en throughout the naton have some challenging asks ahead of then along with learning how to feed cloth and shelter their fam ilies better There is a challenge theyre told in keeping the neigh borhood tics that have weakened with modern modes of living and transportation There is a chal lenge in helping rural young peo ple find a happy way of life in in dustrial areas for not all of Iowas farm young people can be reab sorbed on the farm There is a challenge in keeping the family even keel in times of hard ship Thus homemnking she pointed out becomes not the routine tasks of everyday living within the 4 walls o 1 he house but a vital role in a changing world Better Citizens Aim of School Education in citizenship has been carried out in a project this year by St Katharines school Davenport Planned to augment the student bodys knowledge of
