The author recognizes the home as a basic unit for society. Anything which benefits home life, as clothing improvement program, warrants careful consideration.
The author also realizes that there are other home making units beneficial for the improvement of home life: such units as Home Nursing, Foods, and Family Relationship. These units received the same attention as the clothing unit, but time will not permit me to compile the information that I have on hand for the phases mentioned hitherto. Therefore I shall attempt to tell you something of the clothing improvement program which has been carried out in this community.
This community presented an entirely new situation to the writer, which has not been experienced before. This community felt very keenly the effect of the depression. The families were suffering from the crop shortage of the past year. Because of this shortage more than one half of the children enrolled in the Home Economics classes represented families on the relief roll.
The families of this community followed the course which is usually followed under similar circumstances, that of first providing food, and using what is left for clothing. In this case very little money was left for clothing. This of course presented a challenge to the Home Economics teacher of the community.
