Master of Science
Adult home demonstration extension clubs have been organized for the development of people and for the dissemination of educational information in the field of homemaking. Membership in the clubs is open to all rural and urban homemakers.
The writer is concerned with the theory and practice of adult leadership. The task associated with good leadership cannot, of course, all be performed by the "chairman," "teacher," or whatever the designated leader is called. Leadership operates best when responsibilities are shared. A way of studying an adult group to find out to what extent the jobs of leadership are being done and how well they are qualified has been described in this study. For 15 years a major part of the educational information has been brought to home demonstration club members through local leaders. Local leaders are of two types, namely, subject matter leaders (demonstrators) and the organizational leaders. Subject matter leaders are also sources of reliable information in the community. Organizational leaders are responsible for maintaining a substantial organization through which the subject matter leaders may work.
