Carefree youth is the keynote of

blouse with casual open-at-the-

Trait Of Bossiness' In Women
Is Traced To Home Influence

11

By VIRGINIA VOORHEES
Close friendship with the father
during a girl's adolescence and eco-
nomic security in this formative pe-
riod generally are associated with the
trait of "bossiness" in women accord-
ing to a recent report of the Easterr
branch of the American Psycholog-
ical Association. The report appeared
in the New York Times.
The findings, presented by Dr.
Philip Eisenberg of Colupbia Univer-
sity and Dr. June Carpenter of Bar-
nard College, are based on a study
of 500 young women at Barnard and
'Brooklyn Colleges. The likelihood of
the development of this dominant
trait is increased, the report said, by
an emphasis on freedom and indi-
viduality in the girl's upbringing.
Reasons For Dominance
Unusual social prestige, a lack of
strict economy, enjoyment of an al-
lowance,. attendance at camp and
socially busy parents were found to
characterize the girlhoods of the ma-
jority of dominent women. In addi-
tion, they were not dependent on par-
ents or brothers and sisters for social
life, and were permitted to date be-
fore the age of 15.
"Their freedom and individuality
were stressed," the report added,
"and they were allowed to arrange
their activities' without consulting
parents' wishes to a great extent.
Their parents treated them as indi-
viduals with privileges and responisi-
bilities of their own."
Mothers Less Important
Not only were these' dominant
women less emotionally attached to
their mothers and less likely to spend
time with them than were the non-
dominant types, but in many cases
they did not get along well with them.
It was the father on whom attention
and affection focused.
The question of emotional security

was also taken up in the report.
'Though it is clear that the domi-
aant women come from homes with
;reater economic security, and that
,heir individuality and independence
were stressed to a greater extent than
for the non-dominant women," the
report stated, "we cannot be certain
whether or jgot this means greater
emotional security for them. At any
:ate, there is some evidence that the
lominant women are not entirely
tree from emotional insecurity."
Athena, Alpha Nu
Will Battle Today
On Michigan Man1
Another verbal battle will be waged
at 7:30 p.m. today on the fourth floor
of Angell Hall when Athena, women's
speech society, and Alpha Nu, men's
speech society, will meet again to
debate the question Resovled: "That
the Michigan Man Lacks Finesse."
The custom of holding a mock de-
bate between the societies each se-
mester is one of many years stand-
ing, according to Lillian. Tolhurst,
'38, president of Athena. This year
Athena will be represented on the
affirmative side by Mary Evelyn Ow-
en, '39, and Faith Watkins, '39, who
will strive for an unbroken record of
decisions over Alpha Nu. The men's
society will be representedby- David
Laing, '39; and Fred Thompson, '39,
debating on the negative side of the
question.
Last year the question "Resolved:
That, a Woman's Charm Varies In-
versely As Her Size" was the topic for
a heated debate, and involved much
discussion. The topic for this year's
debate was chosen by the women, ai
the men are expected to make ade-
quate defense against the charges
made. The public is invited to attend.
