ick Stabile's Orchestra To Play At Panhellenic Ball,

-- 0

U S _ _ . _

Prof. Slawson Gives Reasons'
or Women's Scholastic Victory

Greater scholastic achievement by
campus women over men is due to
selection, lack of necessity for self-
suport, less participation in activi-
ties, and more serious consideration
of their subjects, Prof. Chester B.
Slawson of the geology .department
and academic counselor for under-
graduates, pointed out.
Women are in definite minority on
campus, Professor Slawson said, and.
this makes them a more select group.
Because there are more men, he' ex-
plained, it means that the scholastic
ability must necessarily be below that
of women if, .in both cases, the best
students come to college from the
high schools. It must necessarily
follow that if all boys should attend
college: the male scholastic average
would be still lower.
Fewer Women Self-Supporting
At the same time, fewer women are
expected to support themselves in,
college, Professor Slawson said. Most
parents feel that if they can send

their daughter to school, they should:
pay for her education, otherwise her
place is at home.
Speaking particularly of freshmen,
Professor Slawson finds that men
are allowed to work in a doz0en .dif-,
ferent activities, while women are re-
stricted to the Freshmen Glee Club.
Men Have Less Time
Men often spend three hours a day
trying out for freshmen football,
ROTC,, band, track, wrestling, or
swimming, he said, and this takes
time which would otherwise be spent
in study.
Upperclassmen usually participate
more intensively in activities than do
women, he pointed out, working for
superficial honors wlich in many
respects provide greater incentive
than any sought by women. Publici-
ty and fame is more widespread for
the captain of the football or bas-
ketball team.
Finally, women are likely to be
more conscientious about completing
assignments gvien to them, Profes-
sor Slawson -said..
