College Woman
SHasn't 'feelings'
"Since the war forced men to em-
ploy women in England, it has been
found in many cases that one woman
is. taking the place of 'two, men," de-
clared Miss Rose Sidgwick of the
University of Birmingham, who with
her .colleague of the British mission,
Miss Caroline Spurgeon, spoke at
Mar.thaCook building last night. "One
nn wlio had hitherto refused to em-
ploy women, even college-trained,
said, - 'Give me college women, for
they're different from any other kind.
They have no feelings, and they do
not q.uarrel.' Which was a tribute to
the poise which the college woman
attains." Miss Sidgwick spoke on
the many changes wrought in the
lives .of English college women by the
war, :while Miss Spurgeon explained
the purpose of the British mission
and especially that of the two wom-
en on it, which is to bring about an
interchange of women students be-
tween the _ colleges of the two coun-
The distinguished guests answered
many questions fired at them by the
interested girls, residents of the two
large dormitories and of Kent hall
and Alumnae house, who filled - the.
blue room to overflowing.- Both ex-
pressed delight in meeting students in
this way, instead, as one put it, "of:
peeing a great many big buildings
and - no people."
