Miss Lucy Hayden Harrison, the daughter of Colonel and Mrs. George W. Harrison, of Atlanta, has just returned for the vacation season from Wellesley college, where she has won unusual success and popularity from her consciencious effort and warm southern heart. She has completed unconditioned all the year's work, which is a mark of distinct success, for one of the professors has writen that she has accomplished very much more than the average college student. Miss Harrison is only sustaining at Wellesley the same success which she achieved in Washington Seminary, where she received her college preparatory training and graduated with great credit a year ago. Class tree-planting Day is always an event at Wellesley, and Miss Harrison was one of the five selected from her class of over 200 to arrange the programme and preside over the exercises and the occasion this year is said to have been the most brilliant and successful Wellesley has ever had.
