                Special Note by CMB September 5, 1935

Maude Rothrock Williams is listed in the Normal Alumni Directory
in the Class of 1927.  Registrar Sissa has her card in with the
cards of 1928 Class.  The 1928 Commencement program carries
this name, with the notation that her work was completed July 30,
1927, which would place her naturally with the Class of 1927,
though she did not receive the 2-year Normal diploma until
Commencement of 1928.
