Description (Abstract)

"When you ask about ten Dutch people, 'What is a dietitian?' two will tell you, 'Well, it must be a kind of religion.' One might tell you it could be a new type of incinerator, and the rest—silence. About 99% of our dietitians are used in hospital kitchens as a kind of an intellectual cook. . . . When I return to Holland, I hope to show them a dietitian need not be hidden in a kitchen, but that she can work efficiently and knows the ins and outs of her profession." - Johanna Frederica Howeler (page 4)


Debate of honor system and cheating (page 2); Costume ball (page 3); Simmons Student Miss Johanna Frederica Howeler of Amsterdam speaks about being a dietitian (page 4)
