Description A letter from the National Military Sisterhood of America dated January 6, 1920.

Letter starts off by stating that the Topeka chapter is interested in the veterans who left school to serve their country that are going back to school. The letter then states that they wish to make a state-wide survey on what Kansas colleges and universities are doing to help. The letter then lays out the 5 questions on the survey.

1)What college credits have you given for military service?
2)Do you Charge Tuition to ex-soldiers? If so, is it in full or in part?
3) Are They given any rebate on fees, student enterprise, or college activities involving fixed charges?
4)Have they been given any other tangible aid or encouragement in their difficult task of readjustment to school life?
5)How Many ex-service men are now enrolled and how many, if any, have been sent by the Federal Board of Vocational Education?

The letter closes by stressing the need for an early reply.
