Nashville, Tenn. That home-economics
education in the colored
schools of 14 Southern states is rec
ognucd as essential to a well-rounded
curriculum and that earnest efforts
are being expended to raise the stand
ard of work in colored schools,
through more adequate financial sup
port and improved supervision, was
the opinion expressed by Miss Carne
Alberta Lyford, director of the Hamp
ton Institute home-economics school,
in her recent address on "Home-
Economics Education for the Col
ored Girl," delivered before the South
ern Home Economics Association,
which met at George Peabody Col
"Courses in home-making in Negro
schools," said Miss Lyford, "have
been carried on in various parts of
the South for more than fifty years,
but so scattered have been these ef
forts to train Negro girls to stand
ards of better living, so lacking in
recognition by the State departments
of education, and so generally thwart
ed by the absence of a definite, carefully-arranged
that there can be said to have existed
no well-defined plan of home-economics
education for the Negro girl.
"With the appointment of super
visors of colored rural schools in
every Southern state, with the devel
opment of recognized home economics
departments in the State normal
schools for Negroes, with the growth
of the home-demonstration work for
Negro women under the U. S. De
partment of Agriculture, and with the
establismcnt of vocational home econ
omics under the Federal Board for
Vocational Education, the need for a
definite scheme for home-economics
education for the Negro girl has be
come increasingly apparent . . .
"Negro education along all lines
has suffered sorely through lack of
organized effort and co-operative en
deavor. Home-economics education
for the Negro has in no sense been
an exception to the prevailing condi
tion, though special interest in some
phases of the work, funds for main
tenance, and recognition by educators
have all been lacking. In many cases
cooking schools have been left with
out stoves, sewing rooms have been
without machines; no provision has
been made for supplies for cooking
or sewing lessons; and State and
county officials too frequently have
known nothing of existing conditions.
Learnincr by Doing.
"Early courses in home-making for
Negro girls were largely taught by
Northern white women who came
South to aid in the establishment of
industrial schools which were sup
ported by Northern capital. These
scattered industrial schools, however,
became centers of development for
the Negro communities in which they
were established but the fact that they
were, 'private' institutions deprived
them of that wide usefulness, which
it is alone possible for well-supported
State institutions to exist. Such
institutions as Hampton and Tuskc
gec, which have had a high degree of
independence and of freedom from
binding conditions, have made pos
sible the development of a type of
education that is full of suggestion for
vocational schools today.
' "The motto of Hampton, 'Learning
by Doing,' has stood for making use
of all the facilities of daily life for
training. Thus, from the" first, the
Virls were carefully trained in various
'processes of house work, even though
no formal courses of home economics
were developed. Such training has
continued to form an important part
of the "home-economics education of
Hampton girls and of the girls in all
the well-conducted industrial schools."
Miss Lyford paid warm tribute to
the nioneer home-economics work
which had been done in Norfolk,
Newport News, and other Southern
cities during the past twenty-five
years. She also commended the val
uable work of the State supervisors
of rural colored schools and the
Jeanes industrial supervising teachers,
who aim to improve the Negro girl,
her home and her community.
Modern Home-Economics Courses.
"The home-economics course," said
Miss Lyford, "that does not make the
girl a healthier, better-dressed, more
industrious, and a more honest girl
fails of its first purpose. The girl
who has learned to care for and to
control herself and to spend her
money wisely has received the fund
amental training necessary before she
can be prepared to take her place as
the head of a home or to assume
those wider rcsoonsibilities which
make for better community life. The
Negro-home will show the results of
school training that is effective and
only as it docs, will the needed im
provement in community Jife be
brought to pass. -
"Today, because of the recognized
changes that -are taking place in
economic and social conditions, all
teachers feel the pressing need of pre
paring their girls for lives of useful
ness, of developing habits of thrift,
and of awakening a spirit of re
sponsibilty in those' upon whom the
future welfare of the race is-to rest
"'All .know that the old-time cabin
is 'passing and that the homes of the
colored Teople must be made as san-
tional to family life as are the homes
of any other civilized race. It is a
fact that Negro girls today come
from homes that range from the
poorest to the best and that they
come to their home-economics work
with corresponding backgrounds of
lir.- " J. ' St.. nrf of
home-economics course that is to be
offered it is necessary to know very
definitely the amount of preparation
that the teachers have had and their
ability to carry on the work. The
limitations in the educational oppor
tunity of the colored people are no
where more apparent than in the
preparation of their teachers. This
is particularly true of the teachers of
home economics, most of whom have
had a meager elementary education,
a still more limited secondary educa
tion, and a normal training of a few
weeks in summer school, or, at best,
a few months of practice teaching in
conjunction with a secondary course.
"Two- year normal courses are be
ing offered today, but it will be many
years before the home-economics
teachers who finish such courses will
be sufficient in number to supply the
demand for teachers of home econ
omics in all the city schools and in
the county training schools of the
South. Fewer by far arc the colored
teachers of home economics who
have earned a college degree. There
is an increasingly large number of
young colored women who are com
pleting courses in the colored col
leges of the South. Majors, how
ever, in home economics haVc not
been offered in these colleges. At the
same time the occasional graduate of
a Wortnern college seldom nnas ner
way back to Southern schools and
even then her course may have pre
pared her inadequately for the condi
tions which she has to face in her
every-day work within and without
"For many years to come, home
economics courses must be so plan
ned that they can be effectively
taught by teachers who have been
trained in the industrial 'schools.
They are capable of doing good work
and great numbers of them are doing
effective work all over the South.
Their work can be strengthened by
wise supervision and by increased op
portunities for summer-school courses
and other forms of advanced study.
Probably no class of teachers is more
eaeer for opportunity for self-im
provement than these women who are
Iso intimately acquainted with the con
ditions of their own people and who
feel the needs so keenly and their
own inadequacy so greatly. The in
dustrial school has given them fund
amental training, which every girl
needs and without which our home
economics courses will never be suc
cessful. This fundamental training in
better living Is the greatest need of
the Negro girl, for upon it the im
provement of the home depends.

Close beside the spring tallleur of
classic lines, and guiltless of braiding
or trimming, there appears this spring
that perky little dressy suit so uncon
ventional in many ways.
The new little Jackets are called by
the French "paletots sacs," and they
are Jaunty little affairs of fairly
straight and unfitted lines. They end
at Just about the waistline, unbelted,
but left loose and rippling where they
Jean Patou shows the paletot Bac
that Is quite short with a wavy line
at the bottom, that rather slumps to
ward the back than otherwise. A suit
of this type Is made of moroccan crepe
In very dark blue faced with silk print
ed In the designs and colors of a cash
mere shawi The little Jacket, by tnr
way, is reversible and Is well suited
In either role to the little one-piece
frock that la designed to be worn
Most of these short coats ore made
to accompany the one-piece dress
rather than the separate blouse with
Its skirt to match the coat Some
times, indeed, the coat burtons to the
frock instead of being fastened to
gether, as is the time-honored, way with
coats either long or short. Often the
upper section of the dress Is made
of some lighter material than the
lower section which matches the coat,
and again the whole frock may be of
a heavy silk, while the coat Is of some
woolen fabric matching It in color.
Indeed, at most of the coatorleres
there are to be seen these two dis
tinct types of street suits for spring.
one that Is strictly taliorea, navmg a
coat that reaches -the knees or even
below that line, and the other that in
some way shows a fanciful little coat
or one of the shorter capes.
