Address To Teachere
Prominent Speaker at Greens
boro Convention
Mr. Ralph W. McDonald, head of
the l-'ducation Department, delivered
the principal address before the As-
seciation of Heme Economics Teach
ers Asoeiation at their recent meet
ing in (ireensboro. His subject was
“The Sociological Values of Home
h'conomics and their Attainment.”
Mr. McDonald stressed the fact
that Home Economics courses are
]/rimarily of general or cultural
value in education, rather than vo
cational, which is a secondary aim

subjects (Home making, etc.) came
into the curriculum as their contri
bution to the liberal educaion of pu
pils. No subject has more direct
or valuable contribution to make to
s.ocial stability and progress. The

in High Schools is being reorga
nized and taught with these values
He stated that since the quality
of familv life ,is the determiner of
the level' of .social life, it is to the
end that home and family life may

courses are included in the eurri-
It was noted with satisfaction that
during the present economic crisis
iiianv North C:arolina high schools
have added Home Economies to their
curricula for the first time, indica
ting that this subject is being rec
ognized as making effective contri
butions which days of depression
cannot obscure.

urges assistance to co-operative mar

of the tariff to maintain protection of

this time adequate tariff is partieu-
