Miss llartrldae's Pupils Have Taken
Utah Hawk. ,
Fifteen years ago few. If any. Savan
nah girl*, an l comparatively few South
ern girl*, hud ever beeh graduated from
one of the larger women's colleger-.
Whether this was duo t prejudice that
ha* been only recently overcome. 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.
Alls* Hurlildge. who wns graduated ff-un
Vassar In IM2. felt strongly Ihe need hete
of an Institution ihut would not only
pre|>ure pupils for college. If they %v|nh.-i
to go, but In case they did not. would
give them a thorough training that would
stand them In good siead through life.
It wo - to meet this need that Immediate
ly alter graduation, sne opened her school,
a school tnat has since Justified the need
for its existence.
In lagj, there were In V***ar College
but two girls front Ihe whole state of
Georgia. By IKK. upon Ihe entrance of
one of her pupil* to the sophomore class.
Miss liuriridge received the following
Utter from Vassar. placing her school

"Dear Ml** ll irtrldg*: Are you pleased
lo know that the faculty ha*. In conse

ami hope lh.it you moy be ib|p to seed

you will, or by examination If you pr, -

In 1*97. iwo other glrht from Savannah
entered Va*ear. and In 1*99. still three oth
er* went to college, one to the Woman’s
College of Baltimore. Now |n Alls* liart

to lake Ihe entrance examinations. But

the Idea being that every |>upll may. at

want* to study To meet the Increasing
denmnd*. Mis* Hnrtrldge ha* enlarged her
school somewhat, but her main object in
adding o her corps of teacher*. Is that
Hits may be able 10 keep chiefly In her own
hands the Instruction of the younger
children Not so very long ago there was
a strong impression that anyone could
teach a young child; that Ihe foumlatlon
was of considerable less moment than th*
superstructure. To-dny peopie are Its.
ginning to rsallxe ihut th> younger Ihe
pupil ihe greater tho nerd for careful
attd systematic nr,ltd training, and that It
Is scutqely fair to their children to place
them, when young, with Inexperienced or
incompetent Instructors, snd expect great
results of them when older.
