In spirit, at least, grandmother's granddaughter Is not so different from grandmother when
she was the same age. The characteristics of
the grandmother, though amended and modified
or enlarged, as the case may be, are recognizable as those of the grandmother.
Speed, that trait so often attributed to the
granddaughter, was not lacking In her ancestor.
Numerous little old ladies gleefully tell of the
times when they delighted In racing their horses
when their elders weren't looking.
It must be admitted that our grandmothers
were encumbered with layer upon layer of
clothing, which endeavored to curb their effervescent spirits. The era In which they lived
called for minute care and attention to their
attire, which resulted In frills and furbelows
Inside and out. Their toilets, as their costumes
were called, were carefully designated as morning, afternoon, walking, equestrian, opera, evening, boudoir, and various other types.
Laces, flowers, newly designed taffetas, stiff
and ruffled materials were used to make the
frilly caps, gowns, underskirts (of which they
often wore two, three, or four) and gloves.
The home, with occasional Industrious ladles
trying their hand at sewing, cooking, teaching
or writing, provided industry and professions
for grandmother. There is no end to the professions In which granddaughter may enter. If
she desires, she may live with grimy hands in
the work of an engineer, a geologist, a mechanic,
She may employ her
or other industrialists.
natural perogative or curiosity in the duties of
journalist, social service worker, in an Intelligence office, or as her grandmother, In the
rooms of the nation's schools.
The world's citizens must be fed, so granddaughter enters the business of raising, preparing, selling, or managing the dispensation of
food. There Is a vast variety of positions open
to granddaughter, from which she may choose
her life work.
Oddly, and yet not so unexpectedly, granddaughter continues to follow the example set
by grandmother, and chooses to take on a husband, a home, and whatnot, with all the attached cares and duties. Investigations, those erstwhile Institutions of the Hoover administration,
have resulted in figures showing that more than
eighty per cent of the college women of America
prefer a home to business.
All of which upholds the fact that the granddaughter of 1930 is forsaking the life of a
tomboy, which she has led for the past ten
years, and assaying the charm and sophistication of her grandmother. She will continue to
take advantage of opportunities which have
been accorded her, and which her grandmother
did not have.

grown to be one of the most influential of the campus organizations,

founded to be of service to all the
