The Berry Schools inform Mr. Ketchum that the records he requested about the careers followed by Berry alumni would be difficult to collect while so many people are out of the office. They enclose a packet of general information about the school and say that further records can be obtained for him later. They tell him that that most students return home to work or marry after they graduate, excepting a small percentage of girls who are hired on at the schools. The schools also inform him that many others go to college after completing their high school work and Miss Berry is establishing a Junior College for those such students. She is also working on establishing a bookkeeping and stenography course for college sophomores. They encourage him to write with any more questions.
