Home Economics. In October, 1913, a group of girls met under the leadership of Miss Hettie White, to organize the Home Economics Club, which later became known as the "H'e" club. At this meeting Laura Gurr was chosen president and Miss Ethel Bay, vice president. The purpose of thsi club was seven-fold ; first, for better training of home makers ; second, for better health ; third, for better physical and mental development ; fourth, for the overcoming of drudgery ; fifth, for finding joy in common tasks ; sixth, for lifting the mind above the sordid to a happier plane ; and seventh, for becoming better acquainted with our own physical makeup. And, in fact, for efficiency along all lines. Since that time the club has gradually increased both in membership and merits, until it is now one of the most important organizations of the Murdock Academy. We began with fifteen members, but at the present date, we have increased our numbers to thirty-five, all of whom are energetic workers, and are continually striving toward the up-building of our club. Our training has not been altogether along mental and physical lines, but we have taken great interest in all social activities, and have tried in every way to uphold the standard of our school.
