sity of Beirut replied for the foreign
students; indicating "deep appreci-
ation of the kindness tendered here."
In spite of the great troubles prev-
alent all over the world, he said,
"We are filled with hope that ulti-
mately idealism and kindliness will
tiiumph over selfishness and greed.
You have strengthened our faith in
humanity," he continued. Mr. Ku-
rani pointed out that justice, free-
dom, kindness and understanding
must be the bases for world pro-
gress and happiness.
Professor Nelson outlined the his-1
tory of the Center and the dinners.
"These dinners are a tradition of 15
years, taking on more significance
each year," he said. Indicating that
the purpose of the dinner was "to
make foreign students among us feel
at home," Professor Nelson claimned
that the affair was not only an ex-,
pression of University welcome, but
also an expression of welcome by the
community. He' also evplained this
year's recreational program of the
International Center 'and concluded
his talk by thanking the League, the
Union, the University and the stu-
dents themselves for "their invalu-
able cooperation."'
The dinner' was officially opened
by the saying of grace by one of the
students 'present. The prayer itself.
indicated the cosmopolitan atmos-

"the Father of all of us."
A program of American folk danc-
ing. performed by both foreign' stu-
dents and representatives of the
League officially concluded the eve-
ning's ceremonies. The groups pre-

From 1851, when the first sugges-
tion was made that women be al-
lowed to enter the University, until
1870 when the Board of Regents
passed a resolution admitting both
sexes, one of the most contentious
controversies of the University's his-
tory took place. Public and private
papers filed in the Michigan His-
torical Collections in the Rackham
Building vividly reflect the heat of
this struggle over women's rights.
Some young men during this per-
iod became furious at the possibility
of women usurping male privileges.
An editorial in an 1867 Chronicle
fumed, "Right-minded men admit
that since the gun-powder plot no
more mischievous plan has ever been
set on foot than that modernly
christened. 'women's right'." Trac-
ing the course of women's evil do-
ings, the writer began with Eve,
"In the Garden of Eden this fallacy
sprang, armed arnd equipped, from
the head of the serpent, and the.
ruin of the race was its first result."
The degradation of John the Bap-
tist, Joseph, and Mark Antony by
women was noted, and the decline
of Rome was paralleled to "ascend-
ing female influence". 'The writer
quoted St. Paul, "Let your women
keep silence in the churches", and
suggested that this rule be extended
elsewhere. The editorial concluded
with the dramatic warning, "Man's,
right to be called the Lord of cre-
ation has been put in peril."
Published Report In 1858
A slightly more objective commit-
tee of three Regents published a re-
port in 1858 which warily observed,
"Opponents insist that to admit la-
dies to the University would be an
innovation never contemplated by
its founders or its patrons, destruc-
tive to its character and influence,
and ruinous to the ladies who might
avail themselves of it."
Prominent among methods inl
which ladies would destroy the Uni-
versity's character was their inevi-
table use of the school for a mar-
riage bureau (Miss Madelon L.
Stockwell, the first woman to enter
the University, did marry one of her
classmnates). Another embarrassing
situation that was pointed out was

the conduct of anatomy and physio-
logy classes in the presence of both
sexes. Some professors insisted that
separate classes would have to be
Wrote To Horace Mann
Regent Donald McInvyre, a mem-
ber of the 1858 investigating com-
mittee, wrote to Horace Mann of
Antioch, saying, "A question has
arisen in the University of Michi-
gan by the application of several
young ladies for admission to it ...
and asking how the system had
fared at Antioch. Educator Mann
promptly replied o.ffering his full
approval of the co-ed system with
the warning," ... very serious dan-
ger must attend the introducing of
such a system ... We have conduct-
ed the system for five years, without
a disaster . . . I believe that schools
for both sexes can be conducted
safely, that when so conducted, the
intercourse of the sexes is mutually
advantageous; that daily intercourse,
with young ladies refines the man-
ners of the young men, and actual
association with young men, and a
knowledge of character, and the du-
ties of like has a strong tendency to,
expel all girlish romance and to ex-
ercise the miserable nonsense which
comes from novel reading.",
With such encouragement in ad-
dition to constant pressure from
women groups the Board of Regents
passed the resolution on Jan. 5, 1870,
admitting women without even men-
tioning them, "Resolved, that Board
of Regents recognize the right of
every resident of Michigan to the
enjoyment of the privileges afforded
by the University, and that no rule
exists in any of 'the University sta-
tutes for the exclusion of any person
from the University who posses the
requisite literary and moral qual-
ification." And soon after Miss Mad-
elon L. Stockwell took advantage of
this resolution to become the Univer-
sity's first woman student.
Published I etrospective Edition
In 1899 when women's status was
becoming more secure, the girls pub-
lished a retrospective Women's Edi-
tion of the Daily outlining the prog-
ress of co-education and marking
the absurdity of former objections
to it. They revealed that the opin-

ions maintaining women's physical
and mental incapability of higher
education were merely foggy preju-
dices. Beliefs that ladies would ruin
the moral- atmosphere and turn the,
University into a female seminary
were likewise disparaged. The co-eds
of '99 summed up, "It is very curious
to note that not a single prediction,
of these wise and learned men in our
University faculty, turned out to be
well founded."
Not satisfied with debunking old
objections the girls further gloated,
"now women are uniformly of better
character than the men ... Intellec-
ually they have proven themselves
far superior in everyrespect." Then,
after 4coffing at the predictions of
the learned faculty of the 60's, the
young ladies ventured a prediction
of their own, "When the women of
this nation shall obtain the 'higher
education, and also the trades and
professions or bread-winning pow-
ers, and the ballot, they will then
make'the same demands of rien in
regard to a high moral standard as
the men now make of them, and
their demands will be duly appre-
ciated and regarded." That was'40
years ago.
