Excerpt from Mechanics of the Sewing Machine

The Joint Committee on Physics has asked us to give in this publication a summary of the information thus far received as teachers in history, civics and science in high schools, vocational schools and colleges may appropriately use. The data given as to the probable number of machines in use and the economic gain of machine over hand sewing, we realize, do not answer all of the questions which may be raised regarding the in?uence upon the labor market and the home life by the concentration of garment work into shops where nearly all processes are machine operations. A discussion of this question in the civics class will help to give new light upon changes that are now taking place in the life habits of the women of this country.

Projects seem to be proving as valuable an aid to education as any new method or device. Projects which center around raising corn or operating some real machine seem to hold the student's attention while he obtains a practical grasp of the principles which need to be learned.
