THE CO-ED IN THE EAST.
I have hoard several very onorgotlc
complaints lately from girls from the
west who are students In Radcllffo col
lego of the position in which practi
cally all the women In that Institu
tion are placed. Ono of these girls,
who Is a graduate of a big coeduca
tional university In the west, where
womon are on exactly the same foot
ing as men, and who had novor before
come Into any contract with a preju
dice against women In schools, can
liardly contain her Indignation. "Sev
eral times," she says, "when I have
l)een reading a book in the Harvard li
brary, the book has been actually and
literally taken out of my hands, be
causo, as tho attendant simply and
gracofully said, 'a Harvard student
wanted it.' Of course," tho young lady
wont-on, "I know wo are in Cambridge
only by sufferanco, but I think they
might not insist on the sufforanco quite
as much as thoy do. I'm not going to
say any moro, becauso you see I'm
staying and taking it, since I have an
object to nttaln by coming here. But
nothing can prevent me from accumu
lating a big mad while I'm here!" Of
course the young lady's future criti
cisms are disarmed by her submission;
and now that she fully realizes, what
she did not before she came, that she
is living on tne crumbs that fall from
Harvard's table, her Indignation may
abate as her resignation increases.
And for that matter, it is doubtful if
thore is a coeducational college, or one
which is associated or affiliated with
a "male university," in all New En
gland, where the position of women
is not more or less humiliating. To
'obtain frankly equal and quite cheer
ing and humane relations with men
students, women must go to the great
western universities. And, if we may
judge from the way in which these
.western "universities, are coming' f6r
ward, the time may -not be far' distant
when they will begin to attract stu
dents from New England. For that
matter, they must have begun it al
ready, for here is a University of Mich
igan catalogue which has the names of
several students from New England
states on its list.
Speaking of coeducation, I find this
crisp paragraph on tho subject In the
Now York Commercial Advertiser:
"Wesleyan university is threatened
with a peculiar danger. Women were
let in some years ago, and they multi
plied r,o rapidly that the alumni fear
that it will end in the transformation
of the Institution into a woman's col
logo. The percentage of women rose
from seven to twenty-three in ten
years, a rate of increase which in about
fifteen years from now would bring
the number of women up to that of
men. The same results are feared as
in tho case of tho English sparrows
and of tho gypsy moth in Massachu
setts, and the only way out of the diffi
culty is tho organization of a separate
woman's collego within the university.
Coeducation Is seen to be safe only
within certain arithmetical ilmlts, and
tho Wesleyan alumrii liavo dono edu
cators a service in donning tho danger
line at twenty-threo per cent. Above
twonty-thrce per cent women become
terrible to man. Ho begins to cut lec
tures and to blush furiously when he
recites. Tho Instructors all lose their
virility, just as they came near doing
at Harvard before Professor Wendell
sounded the alarm. But on this prin
ciple is it not safer to lot coeducation
alone? You never can bo Hiiro that
womon will keep below twenty-three
per cent. In going to collego, as In
shopping, thoy defy all numerical re
straint." Boston Transcript.
