departed.
Are the great universities, with
Michigan, as usual, "Champion of the
West," fast becoming undemocratic?
The question is worthy of serious dis-1
cussion and honest judgment. Taken
broadly, it may be viewed from sev-
eral angles. There is the co-edu-
cational situation, the problem of the
wealthy student in his relation to the'
poor one, the relation of fraternity
men and women toward those who are
unaffiliated, and the character of Mich-
igan's standing institutions, whether
they are aristocratic in purpose and
function, or whether they are pervad-
ed by a wholesome democracy.
"Down With the Co-eds l"
The uncharitable assertion has been
made in the past by callous males
that democracy exists at Michigan in-
versely as women students are pres-
ent. In other words, co-education is
directly opposed to democracy, and
that elusive wraith could much more
be cornered where men flourish in the
invigorating association of their own
kind, to the exclusion of all members
of the opposite sex. If women must
be educated beyond high school, it
should be in women's colleges, say
these he-men.
In the words of Pres. Marion L.
Burton, this also would be a fact if
it were true. Actual comparisons be
tween graduates of co-educational in-
stitutions and those exclusively for,
men and women, reveal the indubit-
able fact that although no hard and
fast line can be drawn, those coming
from the former display, in consider-
able degree, more democracy, after
that term has been satisfactorily de-
fined, than those from the restricted
schools. The men students who howl
hardest at the enervating presence of
women on the campus would for the
most part be first to complain if de-
prived of their week-end dissipation
at the Union and the Armory, or their
idyllic Sunday afternoon rambles, a
la mode, along the sheltered by-paths
of the boulevard.
Only Trouble Is Scarcity
The chief problem presented by the
women students, however, is that of
their relative scarcity. During 1920-
21, only about one-fifth of the stu-
dent body was composed of women.
At first glance, this would seem to
create a frightful situation. Imagine
on Sunday afternoons every woman
student strolling about with four man-
ly males for escort! It is inconceiv-
able-and equally untrue. A more
common sight is that of one manly
male flanked by two co-educationists.
Truly an anomalous situation, but one
that exists, and which is by every
principle of representation as we un-
derstand, it, truly democratic!
It has been basely asserted that the
majority of women who come to Michi-

to pay part or all of their expenses.
There is in no sense of the word a
iine of demonstration socially between
these students and those more favored
by fortune.
But in Michigan institutions is real
democracy seen, for after all the insti-
tutions have their signal effect upon
the men and women of the University.
The absence of formality, the utter
disregard in most cases of anything
