Women and Education

Why They
Come, What
They Want
Magazine Editor
BACK IN ,1833, Oberlin College
was the first school of higher
education to open its doors to men
and women alike; but no institu-
tion of high character was quick
to follow suit.
In 1858, the University Regents
agreed to study admiting women
to the University proper instead
of providing separate women's
schools, for every branch of the
main institution. The group set up
a special study committee which
quickly decided "that to open the
University to the education of both
sexes would require such a revolu-]
tion in its management that it
was wiser, under existing condi-
tions, both in respect to the in-
terests of the institution and of
the young ladies themselves, that
their applications for admission
should not be granted."
Then, in 1870, President Haven
persuaded that Board to adopt a
resolution to "recognize the right
of every resident of Michigan to
the enjoyment of the privileges
afforded by the University, and
that no rule exists in any of the
University statutes for the exclu-
sion of any person from the Uni-
versity, who possesses the requisite
literary and moral qualifications."
Miss Madelon L. Stockwell of
Kalamazoo entered the University
as a literary college student. Some
considered the step a "bold one"
and "a hazardous one," but few
denied the justness of the move.
Since then the commentary
tone has changed from the 1800's
pompous indignation to the 1950's
cynical pessimism. Today, people
do not worry about the boldness,
hazardness or rashness of having
women in college; rather they
claim "women go to college only
to get a husband," "women only
take the place of some male stu-
dent who really wants to attain
higher education," and "women
don't need college educations as
much as the men."
The women's place in the high-
er education field has not yet been
ascertained, and the eternal ques-
tion seems to be "why do women
go to college?"
And, curiously enough, even
women college students have dif-
ficulty aiswering it.
* * ,
DESPITE SOME indignant
claims to the contrary, it must be
conceded that many women stu-
dents go to college simply to at-
tach a Mrs. Degree to the Bache-
lor's degree-if they even get that:
An informal survey of graduating
senior women last year revealed
that a clear majority included

Six Interceptions
Give 19-10 Win
Homecoming Crowd Sees Badgers
Maintain Chances of Big Ten Title
Associate Sports Editor
Michigan's football team played a , fatal game of give-
away yesterday, as Wisconsin's bruising Badgers stole six
passes en route to a 19-10 victory before a spirited Home-
coming crowd of 68,063 at the Stadium.
It was Wisconsin's first gridiron triumph over Michigan
since 1934, although the teams have met only seven times
since then. The win kept the Badgers in the thick of the Big

Candidates Maintain SGC Inefficient

VALUES CHANGE-The typical woman student of the University
in 1900 differed from her predecessors in that she was not neces-
sarily preparing for a career, but might just be planning to be a
housewife. At that, she had pretty good chances, for the man to
woman ratio was five to one.

(EDITOR'S NOTE: , This is the
first of two articles in which the
ideas and programs ofvthe Council
candidates will be given. The in-
formation was compiled from the

The inefficiency of Student
Government Council has been the
main plank in the platforms of
the twelve candidates seeking elec-
tion this Tuesday and Wednes-
Although they all agree that
SGC could be improved with re-
gard to legislative powers and stu-
dent communication, they differ
widely in their approaches toward
remedying this situation.
Charles Kline, '61, has com-
mented that SGC has many more
powers than it now utilizes and
that these could be put into use
to better serve the student com-
munity. He has mentioned pro-
jects similar to the bike auction
and the course evaluation booklet.
Need Contact
The need for more personal con-
tact with the student body by SGC
members was stressed by Nancy
Adams, '60. The lack of communi-
cation could be improved, she has
said, by having each member
speak to a housing unit once a
month and by weekly articles in
The Daily written by members ex-

plaining important issues before
Bill Warnock, '61BAd., has also
expressed concern over SGC's lack
of public relations work. He be-
lieves that SGC's inefficiency is
due to a lack of prestige in the
eyes of the student body.
This has come about through
conflicts with the administration
which could have been avoided but
the new plan will make SGC more
of a consultative body and will
avoid situations like the Sigma
Kappa incident of last year, War-
nock has said.
No Cooperation
The lack of cooperation between
SGC and the administration is a
big reason for the lack of effec-
tiveness of the Council, accgrding
to Babs Miller, '60. In order to
represent student opinion more
strongly SGC should invite mem-
bers of the faculty and adminis-
tration to their meetings when it
discusses University policy.
SGC should realize its limita-
tions and concentrate on academic
areas and calendaring procedures
rather than administrative de-
tails, Jeff Jenks, '61, has main-
tained. He has also called for in-
creased representation of student
opinion by the Council.- '
Segmentalism has hurt SGC
very greatly, in the opinion of

Elliot Tepper, '62. He believes that
SGC is not lacking in issues or
power but in adequate representa-
tion of all elements of the student
Represent Opinions
John Garland, '60, has said that
SGC's primary purpose is to repre-
sent student opinion and not to
legislate because they simply do
not have the power to do the lat-
-ter. Communication with the stu-
dents is a big problem and one
that must be solved if the Council
is to properly serve the student
body, he agrees.
Lynn Barlett, '63, proposes closer
communication between SGC and
the studentbody by the same
means which Miss Adams sug-
gested. He also suggests more co-
operation and communication with
the faculty and administration.
Bartlett has supported the idea
of more projects in the academic
field and of more servicescto stu-
dents, such as Student Book Ex-
M. A. H. Shah, Grad. PH, has
supported the work which SGC has
done in the past but feels that a
stronger and better program that
promotes exchange of ideas be-
tween foreign and American stu-
dents would serve the best inter-
ests of the entire academic com-

ord, and lowered the Wolver-
ines to 1-3 in the league and a
four-way tie for seventh place.
Defense Stands Out
Underdog Michigan's stalwart
defensive play, however, kept the
issue in doubt until the final min-
utes of the game. Wisconsin
jumped off to a 16-3 lead in the
first ,20 minutes, saw it reduced to
16-10 early in the final period,
then had to hold off three Michi-
gan attempts to dissolve that
But the Wolverines couldn't get
going on the first of these series,
and Wisconsin picked off passes
to stop Michigan's other two
chances. With 18 seconds left in
the game, Karl Holzwarth booted
a field goal from the 19-yard line
to end the possibility of any last-
minute Wolverine heroics.,
Yesterday's game was strictly a
battle of defenses, as both teams
had to rely on each other's mit-
takes to generate any successful
scoring efforts.
Michigan Starts Fast
Intercepted passes set up Wis-
consin's 41-yard and 30-yard
touchdown drives and another
stolen aerial led to Holzwarth's
three-pointer. Darrell Harper's
first-period field goal resulted
from a fumble recovery, and an
interception preceded the Wolver-
ines' lone touchdown.
Michigan started impressively.
Wisconsin received the opeijing
kickoff, but scarcely two minutes
later it was Michigan which had
the game's first score.

mage play of the game, halfback

Two running plays netted six
yards and, after a potential TD

offense then took charge. Wiscon-
