from The Republican (Danville, Indiana) – issue of Thursday, August 24, 1922 – page 8, column 4:

YOUNG PEOPLE HEAR CALL OF HIGHER INSTITUTIONS
Exodus From Danville Starts Soon For Many Points

With vacation nearing a close, Danville’s young people will soon start an exodus for colleges and schools which carries them to many distant points as students and teachers. Most of those going will leave during the first and second weeks of September. Paul Pierson, Darwin Thomas and Estie Hunt will resume their work at Indiana university. Ben Barnett and Lawrence Franklin again will take up work at Purdue. Lorine Brill, Harold Cook and John Harvey will return to DePauw, and Homer Clark enters that institution as a Rector scholar.

James Francis, Claude Walls and Robert Armstrong, all graduates last May from Danville high school, will enter Wabash college. Miss Mary Agnes Showalter has a scholarship in romance languages, and will study in the East this fall. Charles Newman and Frank Christie will enter Indiana Dental college at Indianapolis. Robert Hollowell, Jr. will leave to complete his law course at the University of Michigan at Ann Arbor, and Robert Pickard will enter as a freshman in the school of journalism. Ben Harrison will be an advanced student in medicine at the Indiana Medical college at Indianapolis. Miss Anne Martha Osborne will complete her work at Earlham college. Miss Mary Marguerite Dougan leaves the first of October to resume her work at National Park Seminary, Washington, D.C.

Others are planning to teach this fall, and leave soon for their schools. Miss Mary Edwards will teach at Avon, and Miss Jeanette Wilson at Lizton. Richard Prentice will teach at Batesville. Miss Kate DePew will be in the East Chicago schools this fall, and Miss Dorothy Hamrick will return as a teacher in the Noblesville high school.
