After all the discussion there has.1
been of co-education, its 'merits and~
its faults, it might seem to be ex-1
tremely difficult to say something new I

on the subject. Nevertheless, Prof.
Rollo Walter Brown, an educator of
considerable note, in a recent article.
does bring forth a point that at least
seems to be new.
Professor Brovwn is opposed -to the
mingling of the sexes in colleges, and
yet he dismisses as either trivial or
fabsurd practically all of the stock
arguments against it. Hle ridicules
the idea that young men and women1
ha~ve jany m~ore or different oppor-
tunitie sfor' association in th~e co-
e-iucatioal' institutions thanh they do
fi those where the sexes are segre-
gated, or than they do when at home.
He does not share, or at any rateI
he does not mention, the argumexat of
such, a noted authority as. Dr. Muen-
sterberg that girls when in classroom
with boys necessitate a feminization
' f the instruction given.
Professor Brown's grievance is dif-
ferent from all these and perhaps
puts a new bee in the bonnet of anti-
co-educational cranks. Hle insists that
when girls and boys go to college
together the result is that there is a
separation of the studies pursued ,ini-
to two classes, those that are manly

and those that' are womuanly, and thatf
among the latter there strongly tends'
to be placed wh'at - Used to be called'
the "humanities," including the an-
cient and modern languages and their,
literatures. 1
If this charge is well founded, and
its author has collected from many-
college catalogues a host of statistics,
that seem to prove or at least to
support his contention, the most serf-f
ous part of it is the conclusion as to
the development of the inhumane
among the men ,going to co-educational
institutions. At a time when it is
especially desirable that men should
be "humane," those who attend co-
educational colleges' are made "in-'
humane," it would seem, for lack of
the gentler influences of the studies
they scorn as "sisterly."
Itkcannot be denied that the human-'
ities are sadly neglected in the moderni
college. Xenophon, Herodotus, Homner,
the Bucolico poets; Plato, Euripides,
Aristotle, Greek 'drama. Virgil, Hor-
ace, Juvenal, Lucretius, Pliny, Taci-
tus, and Livy are' but meaningless
names to a great majority. 'Milton;
Chaucer, early English drama,. or
Spencer are too frequently strangears
to college 'graduates. "The" high'er
courses in modern languages are often
shunned; Goethe and Schill'er, Moliere
and Hugo in the original delight but1
i select few.

My Dear 'Mr.-Cowles :-
Your" review of the :picure, "The'
Law rprhids," was asfnine all the
way throtigh and in one place mali-
cious. Where do you get that ~stuff
about Baby Peggy's "cheap little
face?" Are your own features so
exquisitely formed that you cana-
a-ford to criticize those of other peo-
Also you" remarks some weeks ago
at 'the time of Eleanor Duse's death
were, to say the 'least, somewhat in
bad taste.
lI will not sign my name to this, be-
cause you will probably write some-
thing pseudo-humorous about it.
