Notices circulated at the State univer
sity bearing the forged aignature of the
dean of women, and the publication of
an editorial in the dally paper at the big
school, has caused a somewhat bitter feel
ing on the part of leading atudenta and
members of the T. M. C. A to exist
against the faculty. Mra. Edna Barkley,
dean of women, has become unpopular
with some students, both males and co
eds. Tbe trouble existing between the stu
dents and the faculty, more especially
Mrs. Barkley. came as the result of the
attempted enforcement of the rule provid
ing for the segregation of sexes, and the
methods adopted by the dean of women to
carry out her work, that of perfecting a
better moral etandard at the unlveralty.
Chancellor Andrews discussed the situ
ation today. The head of the big school
hegajt by peaking of the editorial that
appeared in today's issue of tbe univer
sity paper. He said:
"I read with interest the editorial under
the beading. Time to Stop.' that appeared
In the university paper today. The wnter'a
oint was well taken. True, this agnation
must stop. Mrs. Earkley Is doing now
whst should have been done In the univer
sity years ago. The chancellor, as well
as the Board of Regents. Is in sympathy
with the work of the dean of women.
"Charges made against Mrs. Barkley
should be put Into writing and the writer
or writers must sign their names If Mrs.
Barkley has not been doing her work as
it shoald be done; If she has taken the
wrong step la matters, or Is guilty of any
of the charges made against bar, tbe
proper authorities should know r If
there Is reason for an investigation, auch
investigation will be made."
A few of the minor charges have been
puhllfhed in the daily n-pera. The most
serious of thi lot, however, has not been
