Abstract: In making this investigation the questionnaire method was used. The questionnaires were sent to schools of each type, including George-Reed Schools, schools in small towns, city schools, and consolidated schools. Nineteen schools in the state were selected, ranging from the extreme western to the extreme eastern part of the state. A questionnaire was sent for each student enrolled in the Home Economics departments. A total of 1445 questionnaires mas mailed and otherwise sent out. Due to illness, negligence on the part of the students, lack of cooperation of parents and one school principal to whose school 150 questionnaires were sent, and various other causes, only 1059 or 79.56% of these were returned. Each student was put on her honor to return me the questionnaire because there were no names and no way of checking to determine if each one had been returned.
