Betty Jean Barber, who spent the vacation period with her parents in Binghamton returned Sunday to the home of Mr. and Mrs. Fred Ireland of Warren street.

The Claude Barber family is back in Binghamton after living in Bridgeport, Connecticut and Brooklyn, New York. However, Betty stays with Flora and Fred Ireland in Homer, New York. She attends school, church and has a circle of friends, many from the Girls’ Missionary Society at the Methodist Church.


  1. What time frame did Betty live with the Irelands?
  2. Why did she go to them? Was there not enough space in the Brooklyn apartment?
