Some girls may be able to use the knowledge gained in sewing club to do dressmaking for the girls at school. I accumulated a little money by doing housework in the city. When hunting a job, go to the Y.W.C.A.; it will help you.
There are always a limited number of jobs around a college for the girl who wishes to work her way. When I was a student I waited tables, worked in the office, stayed of evenings with a professor's children, helped a woman in town with the Saturday housecleaning, and during my last semester, I made sandwiches and sold them to the girls in the dormitory. I have seen girls--orphans, with no one in the world to help them,--working their way and making high honors in scholarship.
To the boy or girl who wants higher training, I say,--go right after it. And keep after it. You may not be able to progress as rapidly as you would like, but the only thing that can actually stop you is you yourself.
