I have been asked about the book on the bed. It is "Marjorie Dean, College Senior" by Pauline Lester. I think it was written in 1922 and is part of a series (Marjorie Dean, College Freshman etc. "A Series of Stories for Girls 12 to 18 Years of Age").It has an inscription inside, "From Evelyn Cowan, To Ruthie Ann Cowan, December 25, 1927. I have a number of books from the early 1900's for kids, they have great cover illustrations and the stories are very entertaining.
