See What Others Are Doing

One call at the Snow's College of Dressmaking will convince the most skeptical that the learning of dressmaking is not only possible, but a positive fact. When girls without one particle of previous experience, in just a few weeks, can learn to do a class of work which would be a credit to the best professional, it proves that this school is providing a real opportunity to the women and girls who wish to learn how to sew. You are invited to see our class rooms and the work being done by the students. Call or write for catalog and terms.

Mr. L. J. Snow, founder of Snow's System of Dresscutting, used in the local Snow's College, was in town last week visiting at the school and inspecting the work. He expressed himself as being very much pleased with the flourishing condition and the work being done here under Mrs. Doran's supervision. This school is doing a very creditable work and is filling a long felt want, judging by the large attendance from all around this territory.

Learn to Sew at Snow's College of Dressmaking

Not a correspondence course, but personal training by one who cares and has had years of experience in this line of work.

This school has thoroughly demonstrated its worth and popularity by the actual work done, the rapid growth and unanimous endorsements of its pupils, many of whom knew absolutely nothing about sewing at the time of beginning their course.

All are satisfied. We can do the same for you. Call at the class rooms and see the work being done.

Write for catalog and full information. Make application early for enrollment.

Snow's College of Dressmaking Graduates Large Class

Snow's College of Dressmaking of this city celebrated their first class day on Thursday, July 10th.

Mrs. Meda Doran, as manager, had previously arranged all details of the day's program. About one hundred invitations had been issued to the pupils and others. About two o'clock the graduates and guests began to arrive at the Odd Fellows hall, which had been beautifully decorated for the occasion with an abundance of flowers.

As soon as all had arrived an adjournment was taken to the court house square where a group picture was taken.

Returning to the hall, fifty-four diplomas were given to those having completed the full course of designing, drafting and sewing. There were also eighteen others who had taken sewing or home dressmaking, making a total of seventy-two on the class roll.

One of the requirements of the class day was that each pupil should wear a gown of her own design and making.

There were a vast number of handsome gowns displayed, showing a variety of styles and designs that would have been impossible to produce without a thorough knowledge of the dressmakers' art.

That Snow's College of Dressmaking has been a great benefit to those who have availed themselves of the opportunity afforded them to learn to make their own wearing apparel was evidenced by the splendid showing made by the graduates on this, the first annual class day.

The course covers no definite number of lessons, but each pupil is given instructions until they are fully competent to design, cut and make any style of garment selected from the fashion plate.

Not only is Mrs. Doran a splendid instructor, but she takes a personal interest in every pupil and sees that they become as proficient as it is possible to make them before they leave the school.

She has also trained a number of dressmakers from other cities of the states who have gone out and started other Snow Colleges.

Coming here only a year ago to open the Snow's College of Dressmaking, Mrs. Doran has met with remarkable success and is held in the highest esteem by her pupils.

The afternoon's program closed with a six-thirty banquet to the graduates and guests. The tables fairly groaned with the delicious viands.
