The ..grieultural Collogo at its Il..t meeting adoptod a new course vwhich is an innovation to a material degreo in the field of hone economics education. So far the courses organized in this field have beon largely professional. Courses have definitely prcparod wonon to enter the profession of teaching, dietitians in hospitals or insti- tutional viork, social wolfaro and health rror.;, laboratory technicians, de- signors, and in other cormiorcial pursuits. For thcsc coursQs a hcavy science schcdulo is roquired- in fact, so heavy that students in L. '. S. are unable to elect much of any work in hor.cconomics except certain courses riainly of an elementary type. The University has thousands of young women who are here to secure a general education of a cultural character. Doubtlcss many such wiould gladly embraze an opportunity to secure considerable horao oconomics training that W would be of future service to them if they could do so without taking the more highly specialized and technical training. Comparod with the oxisting hone economics "majors", the ncu "non-pro- fossional course" increasos the requirement in English and reduces maiterially thc aaount of the general sciences; requires a uinirlmum of 10 credits in Lot- ters and Science and affords a wide selection of electives. Vlith such a course as this the student can got a general cultural course uith a m1aximnu of 40 credits in Hormc Economics work. Iiss KSruegor, in discussing this course with Home Economics educators in the East last vweek, found thoe very sympathetic with this dovolopment; and from such student reactions as have already boen received by the dopartment, it is apparent that thc new course is likely to be vwoll received. ONE OF THE MOST SUCCESSFUL CONCERTS given in Madison in many years was presented at the Stock Pavilion on May 21 whon Madam Galli-Curci appeared under the auspices of the ;gricultural Colleec Federation Board and the University School of Music. The A. C. F. Board's sharo of the proceeds was about %1,250, which will be used by the student organization in advertising the College of Agriculture to prospective stbdents. An equal sunz goos to the School of I~usic and will be turned into thu Union l:emorial Fund. THE CURIRENT III THE LEGISLATIV-E STRELIl has beun loss turbulcnt this wcek. The Assembly passed the $5,000 appropriation for now construction at the * Hancock Branch Station by a voto of 54 to 22, this bill havin- previously passed the Senatc, Anothor attempt was made by thc opposition to resurrect the bill rcpeal- ing the appropriation for the Puninsular Branch Station. Forrier Assemblymlan Frank Graas of Sturguon Bay most successfully cor.nbattcd the latest effort to cut thc appropriation to $2,500 annually.
