By Helen Carrm, '31.
Apparently when a New Yorker
does things he does them in the
marathon manner. Both Wallace
and Hickman have been spending
this entire week casting three
plays, one of which is being re-
hearsed before, after, and during
"Close Harmony," the first of
these plays, is to be presented this
week, beginning Wednesday. Ches-

tions of the day.
Some of the leading educators of
the time argued that opening the
University facilities to women
would be an innovation never con-
templated by the University's fol-
lowers or patrons; that it would be
character and influence and ruin-
ous to any women who might take
advantage of it.
The committee to which the issue
was referred entered upon the in-
vestigation, fully impressed with
the importance of the subject, ap-
parently regarding it as second to
no question that had engaged their

Electing courses in 1860 must
have been relatively simple. The

composed of four pages. It an-

students of each year and outlined
the regulations of the University.
