Good for her! From the Skidmore News (Skidmore, Missouri), May 5, 1921, page 8:
Mrs. W. L. Butts of St. Joseph writes her parents, Mr. and Mrs. Mart Carden, that she has taken up the study of law, and will take her first examination next week. She further writes that Mr. Butts has been re-employed to teach for another year at his present place. This will be his fourth year at the same school.
