SPROBLEMS OF DEANS,
Nr. Nabot Defines Student Opinion
As Sentiment And Ideals Which
Are Echoes Of Few leaders
MARY WOOLLEY ISPAKS
Commenting on the convention of
deans of women held recently in
Boston, Miss Beatrice Johnson, adviser,
to women, stated: "Of the eight ses-
sions which I attended, only one dealt1
with students' problems. The other1
seven 'discussed the dean herself. It
seems to me to be the wrong emphasis,
since deans of women are primarily
interested in the education of their
"The value of student opinion, as
discussed by Richard Cabot, brother of
Dean Hugh Cabot here, was of in-
terest to me;" Miss Johnson went on.
Mr. Cabot defined student opinion as
sentiment, ideals, projects for reform,
and usually the echo of a few aders.
He believes that it is really original.
He thinks that it exists in small, fear-
less, homologous groups, where ithas,
been thrashed through :and selected,
by discussion. In keeping with this
opinion, he feels that c'olleges the size

'against asking for student opinion

Miss Mary Woolley, president of Mt.
Holyoke, won Miss Johnson's interest
by her talk on "The Institute of Pa-
cmfic Relations" which is the out-,
growth of friendships stimulated by
the Y.M.C.A. and Y.W.C.A. It has
been enlarged, however, to include
peoples without the Christian limita-
tion. It now includes China, Japan,
Australia, and New Zealand.
The results of the meeting of the
institute last year were remarked up-
on by Miss Woolley. It has meant an
increase in friendliness between na-
tions pointing toward world peace. It
will tend to meet the rising tide -of'
nationalism due to the exploitation.
of the-East by the West.
Summarizing her opinio of the con-
ference as a whole, Miss Jlhnson said:
"There is a great gap between the
theory and ideals of deans of women
and their actual practice. Happily it
can be overcome in a measure by a
little more contact with youth; and a
little less time on research and intro-1
spective activity. This gap in part de-
flects much of the help which the old-
er generation might give to the young-,
er now in college."

The rental of the senior caps andI
gowns by the Undergraduate can-
paign committee of the Women's lea-'

go to the actual rental of the gown,
while the remainder will go to the1

"Women do not show a great deal
of desire for higher education. There

more of them attend the Normal

the school of the island is very large

mentary schools are Porto Rican
girls. Of course, on acccant of their
bringing up, they are very dependent.
