"Co-ed's" Society a Rare Article at
Wesleyan College.
Wesleyan University has a lively
sensation, and the young women
students are freely expressing their
minds regarding a new order from
the college authorities. Wesleyan
has many pleasant young men among
its students, and the girls have found
them agreeable companions in their
hours of leisure. The young gentle-
men have been permitted hot only
to escort the girls to entertainments
and social gatherings under the eye
of a chaperon, but also to call upon
them at their dormitory, which in
the slang of the institution is known
as "the roost."
President Raymond recently con-
ceived the.idea that the calls of the
young gentlemen should be systema-
tized and brought under college reg-
ulations. The matter was talked
over by the faculty, and it was con-
cluded that some plan should be
adopted whereby the president might
know which of the young gentlemen
were frequenting "the roost" and
which of the young ladies were the
special attractions to them. The
outcome of the affair was that a gen-
eral restriction has been placed upon
calls. The new rule requires the
filling out of a card in this form:
MIDDLETOWN, COaN......,1891.
:Signature of cater ..........
Evening...... Hoar
Gentlemen are requested to ber in mind the
foltowing facts,
1. The ladies do not receive later than ten
2. The ladies desire caller to conform to his
Not transferable.
Name of lady ......--.
The members of the faculty claim
that the use of these cards will ope-
rate advantageously in several ways.
They can ascertain whether certain
students are calling too frequently;
whether it is advisable on account of
the personal character of any of
them to shut off the privilege, and
also to avert the inconvenience of a
young lady having too many callers
in an evening. A young gentleman
can hereafter obtain only one card a
week, on which is designated the
evening he may call. Each young
lady may receive not exceeding three
evenings in a week, and the faculty'
it is understood, will favor a differ-
ent caller for each evening rather
than to permit a fair student's "best

young man"to monopolize her entire
three evenings.
Neither the young ladies nor the
young gentlemen have objected to
the chaperon system, but they are
agreed in protesting against Presi-
dent Raymond's new rule as an
uncalled for interference with their
individual rights and privileges.
