Swea City high school girls had no choice this last year, due to the lack oi a home economics teacher on the faculty. This writer is inclined to believe the 'Workshop training would come' very handy for the average housewife, At any rate, the girls have proven themselves quite as capable as first class craftsmen as are the boys.' In fact the course has become so popular that 'it will in all likelihood become .a regular part of the curriculum on a semester basis. ' , This year the girls not- only worked with wood, but made several hand-pounded copper articles such .as candle slick holders, fruit bowls and candy dishes. Girls who took the course include Dorothy Koons, Marilyn Bone. Evelyn Baker, Joan Robison Elaine Heidenwith, Connie Gonzales, Beverly Angle and Barbara Burnette. Their instructor was Verne Wegner.
