The Iconoclast
Co-eds Defends
(Continued from Page 4)
greatest demand among men students.
Captain Billy's "Whiz Bang" has sup-
ereeded it. In art the boys seem to
prefer Mack Sennett's productions. AS
to talking other than idiotically, an at-
tempt was made to print a typical
masculine conversation, but it was
found that the linotype, usually equal
to any emergency, did not have enough
dots and dashes for the occasion.
In one field the Iconoclast admits
male supremacy. "If athletic achieve-
ments are to be counted-it must be
admitted that the men are surely in
the lead," he said. "Surely we men


have the laugh on the women here.
Imagine a 'co-ed' making thirteen
feet in a pole vault, making a hundred
yards in ten fiat, or heaving the shot
forty feet.
"But because a woman lacks ton-
nage, because she lacks muscles that
stand out like beer steins in bas-re-
lief, because she lacks the celerity
that marks men, jack rabbits, fleas,
dogfish, and snakes, she is surely in-
ferior to man.
"But wait! Women, when they take
to swimming, are as a rule, much bet-
ter than men. Therefore using the
postulate which I used before, wo-
men are surely superior to men be-
cause their specific gravity is less.
"There is an accusation that girls
come here seeking husbands. Accept-
ing this 'a priori,' what of it? Men

get married don't they? And don't
they marry women?
"The whole question about the 'co-
eds' resolves down to male and fe-
male qualities. For a man to con-
demn a woman-wherever she is-be-
cause she is a woman, is to regret that
he is not asexual, or parthenogenetic.
In brief, he would be a protozoan, and
mentally that is what he is.
"The chances are that he does not
believe in evolution, that he is under
the impression that woman was made
of a man's rib by a heaven-sent, white-
whiskered old patriarch. He likely
thinks that the earth was made in six
clock-days, that a course in rhetoric
will make him a great writer, that
Michigan is the greatest university in
the world, and that he is the best man
in it."




The minter round of gay-
eties is setting in and with it
come insistent demands for
appropriate frocks.
Emphatic in appeal are
colorful satins and brocades,
diaphonous chiffons and
dainty taffetas.
Blossom colorings, petal
skirts, bouffant effects, and
trimmings that include f~eath-
'er motifs, or Spanish laces
and jet, are only a fe of
the conceits in the new even-
ing apparel.
