   From Mary Brittain in Pala, California, comes a very interesting letter.
   Mary is a Mission Indian who returned to her home in June, 1909. We quote from her letter: “I was certainly delighted to receive both the Arrow and the catalogue. I would be happy if I thought I could again be a student at dear old Carlisle, but I fear I will never be more than a returned student. Since my return, I have been working until a few months ago, when I was taken ill. Then I lost my work and used up all the money I had saved.
