to the trustees today. On the subject of
coeducation he said In part:
There are many signs of a marked reac.
tlon In the Dubllc mind on the sublect of
coeducation. Friends of the movement
may well view It with some concern. The
tide seems In certain ways to have ebbed
A pronounced reaction has set in. Not
only has the system ceased tn make new
converts, but there are indications that It Is
losing ground In the very territory which It
had so completely won. A new period of
questioning is upon ua. A sort of vague
prejudice has arisen In the country at large
which Indicates a new attitude nf the pub
lic mind toward the whole problem. The
system is attacked on new grounds and
from new points of view.
We are. moreover, not left to merely
theoretical criticism and vague suggestion
as to what the public sentiment Is on the
subject. This is evidenced in certain quar
ters by some very Interesting external
signs. The distinct alteration In the atti
tude of a number of Institutions toward
the subject Is indicated by their policy.
The rapid growth of attendance at the
women's colleges during the last few years
Is olno a very significant fact.
All these things and many others of like
kind point to a serious crisis In the history
of this movement and It behooves those
who believe In coeducation to study the
system with all seriousness. The grounds
of discussion have changed entirely in the
last generation. The old objections have
lost their force and entirely new ones are
now to the front. The notion thut women
are incapable of doing college work so
commonly urged a generation ago. has
completely disappeared. The suggestion
that young men and women cannot be
trusted to observe proper relation In their
social Intercourse has been exploded in
view of the fact that the moral tone of co
educational Institutions Is distinctly higher
than that of tne community at large and Is
certainly not inferior to that of schools for
one sex alone.
But, on the other hand, one hears oftener
the claim that the Increasing number of
women tends to feminize the Institutions
where they are, In some cases to such an
extent as to discourage the attendance of
men. It is urged with increasing per
sistence that the social detractions and
dissipations, with their widening Invasion
of the serious purpose that should go with
school life, form a very serious problem;
while others emphasise the fact that the
broad difference In tho future careers of
the two sexes should find a more adequate
recognition in the college curicula.
