Open Letter to Mr. G. W. Story, 1I:*Dear Coeds:
Doubtless, Mr. Story, you will be Concerning my letter to you of the
amazed that anyone would feel bold 18th, I believe it to be my duty to
enough and confident enough to at-
tempt to refute your statements of extend apologies to all those Michi-
Feb. 19, final as they were obviously gan coeds whom I so tactlessly offend-
meant to be. But you'll have to be ed. Several girls have gone into long
patient for a few inches. dissertations about how wrong I am.


Enlarged as some few opinions ex-
pressed in the J-Hop Daily might have
been, I wish to put before you an-
other way of looking at the four out
of five situation. Maybe the Michi-
gan girls are aloof. In the first
place, who the heck wouldn't be after
one good look at the Michigan men?
They may be beautiful dressers, and
they may know how to look like fix-
tures in the downtown refreshment
centers (if that's any accomplish-
ment) but where are the men of yes-
teryear? Where are the ones who will
put their feet squarely on the ground
and assert themselves?
Women Twist Men
Michigan women know they can
twist the men around their little
fingers, and they lose their respect

for the men. Thus, we see developed
the girl who wouldn't give a ,lugged
penny for a Michigan man. Hence
the so-called aloof attitude.
Now, Mr. Story, you say the wo-
men at the eastern girls' school wel-
come the presence of such as you
with open arms. They are not used
to seeing the male element around at
all hours, and they have no criterion
on which to judge men. Therefore,
they will take what they can get.
Those frizzle-dizzles have fallen to
the point where their every thought
wears a pair of pants.
Insspeaking of the 'low standard'
of beauty set by Mid-Westerners, Mr.
Story, you forget that there are hun-
dreds of Mid-Western girls who go
! ast to school each year. Reports
seep back to their home cities, like-
wise, that they refuse to date eastern
men, after meeting a number of them.
Men Rate Low
Mid-Western standards may be low
and they may be high-that's not
what I'm concerned with mainly-
but wherever they are, I am one Mid-
Westerner whose standards are just
high enough so that Michigan. men
fall below.
One last word before I let you skim.


In every case the vocabulary was
excellent, the diction distinct, and
the logic fairly plausible. I have
been told that if I were only a little
bit better acquainted with Michigan
coeds I would soon see how warm
they could be.
Another girl said that she agreed
with everything written, but the way
she said it told me how much she
meant it. A further comment was
to the effect that just because I had
probably been jilted by some fly-by-
night coed was no reason why I
should blast the coeds as a class. Many
very personal remarks have been cast
at me by the fair contingent of this
University-one to the effect that if
I thought so much of the East, why
didn't I stay there.
He Makes Excuses
For this I have two poor excuses.
The, first is that since this is my
year, I had no idea what the girls
would look like when I came out
here, and the second is that, hard as
it may be for some girls to con-
ceive; I really and actually did come
for an education-not a vacation.
Now when I wrote my former let-
ter, the entire context was general. I
spoke of no one in particular. If
I should claim that American youth
is weak morally in comparison with
what it was when our grandfathers
and grandmothers were young, I
should not expect every girl in the
country to think that her personal
reputation was being dragged through
the mire.
Speaks In Generalities
It naturally follows, therefore, that
when I speak of the Michigan coeds
as a class, I do not advocate that
each individual girl in school should
Jile application for the Old Maids'l
Home. I don't know whether you
noticed it or not, but my remarks
on the Mid-Western farmer were just
as caustic as those concerning the
failings of the Michigan coeds. As
to those, however, not one guy has
