Is open lo question; but It Is certain mat there were In this section few so-called coll*v<* preparatory schools, and If a girl decided to enter Bryn Alawr or Valour or Wcileslev. or Smith, It was only to ttnd ■ hat *b- had several more years ot study ahead of her before she could even h0,..t to pass the entrance examinations In I stun ml mathematics, and possibly hi French and English.
