Good "home economics" meant keeping a future husband happy.

That's why No Boys Allowed! laughing

In my school boys were not allowed to take Home Ec but were required to take shop!  And if I knew then what I know now, I would have DEMANDED to take Home Ec as I am a lousy cook, but was even a more lousier shop student...even though I did manage to make a ping pong table, a basketball wooden back board and a Montana shaped Bread Board!  We also had to take mechanical drawing (shudder) which I hated...I never was able to look at a drawing and decipher it correctly...

This reminds me of a comment my twin sister made while we were in high school - "You ever notice that almost all Home Ec teachers are un-married women?"

Even in this picture...no wedding ring!  LOL

I have always been a good cook and I wanted to take a cooking class in high school but it required a signature from both of my parents because it was considered a girl's class. Mom said yes. Dad said no. So I couldn't take it.

I love the great B & W pics Mr. Duff offers and I really enjoyed the studious look of this young lady! Smile

My homeroom in high school was in the Home Economics cooking classroom. Every once in a while our homeroom teacher would surprise us with freshly baked muffins to eat during the morning announcements. The rest of the school was jealous!
