The College as an Antidote lor Divorce
By DOROTHY UlX
Th 'women's collcga are calling' nttan-.
Hon to tb fact that the higher education
t glrln appears to be a specific far 3o
aaentia mUerj". The records of Vassar
college show that not a single graduate
f that Institution has ever figured In the
41vorc courts, while the other women's
colleges make almost as food a show
ing, the number of divorces among their
dumnae being almost negligible.
Thin should eottle the ancient fiillacy
that to give a girl a good education un
fitted her to be a wife, for tlicae statistics
certainly indicate that If the college girl
does not marry as frequently as her sis
ters, she stays married more often.-
Many explanations may be offered for
this phenomena. The most obvious, of
course, la that the trained reasoning
power of the college woman Is better
tted to solve the domestic problem than
e undisciplined mind of tlio poorlv
educated tveman, 'and that therefore she

conditions arising that lead to divorce.

knowledge, because It Includes every other
art and science on earth. Bhe will need
all that she knows of chemistry In cook

all that she knows of languages to make

It is not only conceivable, but inevita
ble, that a woman who has btjn taught
to think and reason will be ti.. rat n
f her soul under cndltrr.s that wuuld

college life gives girls the education or

In life. The college woman
practically never marries under twenty
five, and by that time her charactor Is
formed, her taste settled, and she knows
what she wants and requires In a hus
band. A girl of sixteen or twenty will marry
a man because he dmicp.H the two-step
well; because he has a black mustache,
cr looks like a clothing advertisement
picture. Then whon she comes to her
self, when she Is woman grown, she
finds that she lias mrde a colossal mis
take, that there Is not one thought or
Ideal or aaplratlon In common befween
them. Inevitably they quarrel, luevltat
ably the bonds between them come to be
the fetters of prisoners. And only tOi
often the. disillusioned, heart-hungry
woman meets up with a man that Is her
real mate, and then thlre is divorce and
affinity scandal '
The late marriage has so much better
chance of being a success than the
carly marriage that it would be worth
while sending girls to college just to
put them In a place where they would
be safeguarded until they reached the
age of discretion. If the college gave
them nothing else save protection.
Also the ' college girl, being oldai
and wiser when she marries than the
ordinary girl, goes about making a
happy home, mora definitely. If she
gets nothing else from the history she
has . studied she has acquired a few
pointers on the vagaries of men, and
so she does not trust to luok, but to
skill, In looking after her own hus
band and keeping him fascinated.
Not all of the credit for making the
college wedding a grand sweet ' song
belongs to the woman. A lot of It
goes - to the husband of the col
lege, girl. Undoubtedly she gets a very
superior brand, for It takes one of
the finest to qualify for the Job.
The ordinary, average man would no
more think of proposing to a college g'rl
than he would put ha head In a lion's

Every machine means emancipation fur

I have not been stirred by anything In
the world of art more powerfully than I
was stirred by the first sight of the

women lies In that Invention once It be

Woman Is slow to avail herself of the
benefits of man' Inventive genius. She
la lntittiod to drag along In the old
grooves, saying the old fashioned methods
are good enough for her; but she Is In
the path of progress, and la too sensible
to be ground under Its wheels. The dav
will come when all sweeping, wavhlng.
Ironing, dlsh-cleanetng and other menla
labor will be accomplished by the mere
direction of a machine, and the beautiful
hours of beautiful days will not be spent
In back-breaking and mtnd-monopoltslug
rounds of ever-recurring labor.
If any man ever went to the aims
house because of the advent of machinery
It was owing to his own lack of fore
sight and perseverance.
Temporarily, Indeed, the Individual may
suffer from loss of accustomed occupa
tion; but If he keeps his mind alert and
his eye open and bis heart courageous
he will find new paths leading from the
new inveiit:ons which offer ten-fold the
opportunit y for succeas offured by the
