For the dining room in question they chose as their motto, simplicity. They selected good but plain furniture, requiring the least amount of care, as the most appropriate.

They divide it into -tough and tender cuts, then they proceed to the laboratory and learn how to make attractive and nu tritious dishes from each of them. And right here there is a marked difference between college work and that offered in vocational schools. The college course, in ledge of the reasons for such com bination; it insists upon the im portance of the aesthetic and ed ucational side of the work.
