College Girl’s Wickedness Is Affection.
Now that Ihe so-called “flapper” is coining in for a great deal
of criticism throughout the American college world, the following
statement may explain away the reason for the accusations. Dean
Elizabeth Conrad of the Ohio State University has put into words
what a great many of us are thinking.
The statement made by Dean Collins came in answer to an article
by a co-ed in the Ohio State Lantern, that the college girl seeks
amusement in petting, smoking and drinking. The dean of women
there holds that the college girls’ alleged wickedness is purely affec
Her statement is as follows:
“Many girls pretend to be hard smokers, heavy drinkers and
ready for come what may. They only play they are, for as a matter
of fact most of them would choke to death trying a cigaret. A man
student recently obtained a bit of whisky and poured it over his
clothing before making a call, lie had matched girls’ tales of wild
times, when as a matter of fact he neither could afford nor dare touch
the stuff. J1 is ‘stunt’ fell through because the girl did not recognize
The only check I know for this desire to display wordly wisdom is
to develop more real comradeship and that is what we are endeavor
ing to do.
“Girls find it hard to adjust themselves from high school stan
dards to college requirements. Only after a girl has met with acad
emic disaster can she be induced to limit her social and church re
“In ray weekly freshman lectures, we get in touch with all the
new girls. Frequently girls go to pieces nervously because they are in
love with a man who does not meet their ideal. Being in love with an
ideal, they come to me and explain their low grades on the ground
that they are trying to get engaged.
“A girl should not have long engagements in my opinion and she
should not announce one until the marriage date is very near. 1 dis
approve as wholeheartedly of marriage in college as I condemn the
girl who gets engaged for the season.
“The most dreaded condition 1 face is the girl whose mother has
neglected to instruct her properly on moral matters, who does not
know how to care for herself, ami has little conception of right and
wrong. But 1 do my best to give such an unfortunate girl a proper
outlook on life, ability to meet strangers confidently, and a regard for
other persons’ rights. All this is done outside of her book training.
“Outside observers never stop to realize that the extreme gayety
they hear of involves only a small percentage of the girls in college.
Manx of them are supporting themselves in school and some even have
to help provide for others in addition to paying their own way.
Especially ts that true in a state university.
“It seems to me that people do not recognize the humanness of the
girl away from home the first time and the desire to play and make
believe is nearly as strong as in childhood, l’retonding to know more
than they do is common to all students, especially in the class room,
and thex earn this into their social affairs. A fexv extremists create
a chance for some one to raise the cry that xx e are degenerating. But
if the improved spirit of cooperation, comradeship, community re
sponsibility is taken into account one can see that the modern college
girl is far superior mentally and physically to the past generation.

The members of the Gamma Zeta

entertained a number of their friends
last Friday evening at the hospitable

We did not try to dictate, we simply
pointed out the facts: that the debate

before; that we must either enter a

a favor of the league officials to con

for expanding into Saturday is to af

There should be no more classes until
there are more faculty members. At
present the staff is bearing more hours
than it ought to.
“The University has already sacri
ficed itself the essence of spiritual
qualities by surrendering all leisure and
keeping the old mill grinding through
out an afternoon that is indistinguish
able from a morning. The logical con
clusion of this process is to use the
buildings for 24 hours in three eight
hour shifts like the factory in doing
rush work. But those who believe in
this idea of a sane and reasonable life
should realize that they cannot have
three shifts until they employ three

Evergreen State Students to

The Washington club, an organization
composed of Washington students at- J

according to plans made at the club
meeting Tuesday evening. It has not,
been decided yet whether the dance
will be held at the Anchorage or at the

composed of Janet West, chairman;
May Search, Dennis B. Campbell and
William M. Tow has been appointed
to make arrangements for the dance.
Music for the affair will be arranged
by Sid Hayslip, and the program is in
the hands of Lloyd Read.

who attended the meeting was enthus
