The Iowa Homemaker

Does the making of three or four pies stump you Mrs. Housewife?

Then listen to this: The cherry pies that were made and eaten at the third annual celebration of Home Economics Day at Iowa State on Feb. 3rd and 4th would have supplied an average family of six with pie twice a week for three years, one month and eight days. The only way of judging the number of visitors which thronged the home economics buildings on this, the biggest day of all the year "home economically" speaking, was by the number of pies which were served. Since each visitor secured one pie, and approximately 2000 pies were eaten, simple arithmetic proves that "home economics" was hostess to 2000 guests on that day. (This number does not take in the crowds that attended the physical training exhibition the day before nor the ·big vaudeville given that night at Agricultural Hall.)
