Mr. White continued, "We comeI
then to the enterprising editor who
believes reporters should be sent1
out who are qualified in a partic-I
ular line. That is, the man who
knows sports will be sent out to
cover an athletic event, and one
who is competent along political
lines will write upfthe nominations.
It is logical then that he will send
the women of his staff to interview
"Some of these will be debu-
tantes, others club women, but
among them will be those who fig-
ured; in the latest scandal, and ther
woman reporter who interviews'
thefn will necessarily have to ques-
tion these women on-the intimate
facts of their lives. One can not
blame -the editor for sending his
best-fitted reporter out to cover a
story, especially one which is at the
time prominent in the public's at-
tention. That is good policy, but
that is also why editors who really
possess a high ideal of women dis-
courage them whenever it is pos-
sible from working on assignments
which are not connected with the
activities of women such as are
found on the pages devoted to them
in the dailies.
Believes Most Editors Agree.
"Finally," concluded Mr. White,
"I am sure that the majority of
editors would refuse to allow
young wonien members of their
own family to enter newspaper
work unless they confined them-
selves to the activities I have men-

hold the opposite opinion, and my
stock fell considerably when they
found out who I was. I'm going to
fool them and get all A's, or B's, or
C's-this semester. Oh yes, I know
my ABCs.
You know, at the very first of the}
year, I received a letter from some
poor, innocent little freshman ask-
ing advice on vital matters. At least'
it was supposed to be from an in-
nocent freshman-I've had several
people under suspicion. It's too latt
to give any advice now, of course,
but I just wanted to say that in the
future I won't even consider ans-
wering any unanimous-I mean
anonymous-notes, from instruc-
tors or otherwise. Really, my dear,
I just can't do it. Somebody might
be trying to put something over on
me and that would never do. When
I receive more requests, I will write
another column.
