College News and Departmenal Notes: Household Administration
by Departmental notes - 1919
A conference on "Hour Service in the Home" was held recently for students in household administration. Mrs. Henry Patterson gave a most convincing summary of the experience that she has had for the past two years with hour service in her home, using four workers coming at different shifts. Mrs. Boardman, of the Home Assistants' Bureau, led the discussion giving interesting notes on recent experiences with employers and employees in this new hour service plan. Another contributor to the discussion was Mrs. Louise Nellis, a graduate student in household administration, who has recently published an article in the Pictorial Review on hour service in the home. It is hoped that this year a series of conferences may be arranged on this subject so that Teachers College students may follow the growth of the movement, and that housewives here on the hill may profit by these discussions.
