During the past year four details of girls have been instructed in
laundry work: making about seventy girls in all. The girls are taught
how much water should be in washer, how clothes should be placed
in washer, how much soap is necessary taking into account the kind of
clothes being washed, how to place clothing in extractor, how to
starch clothing, how to hang them on line or in dryer, how to mangle
all flat work, how to sprinkle clothing as the ironing of clothing, also
all minor details connected with the general washing and prepar

Laundry the past year have shown a very good respones to their

return to their homes. The following girls are entitled to a place
