If you spent the summer just thinking about finding a girl intent upon self-improvement, your chances will be decreased by just 99 females on Friday, when the six-week Secretarial and Publishing Schools wind up their sessions at Radcliffe.
Their departure will leave only 150 graduates and undergraduates capering around the Annex buildings. Thirty of these are parked in Cabot Hall.
The 99, who descended on Cambridge July 1, spent the intervening weeks variously studying shorthand and typing or, in the other school, how to become a successful publisher. The latter course involved everything from proofreading to promotional schemes.
Asked if the intensive course had done everything for her, one would-be publisher who asked not to be identified said yesterday, "Why I should say so. There's ever so much more goes into a book than you'd ever guess."
Taking a firm grip on Kenneth Robert's "Lydia Bailey" she announced, "But gosh, I'm going to get married and I don't know what I'm doing here."
