Records Indicate JVomen Are
Men's Intellectual Superiors
Washington Square College Report Cards Give 48
Females Rating of 84.46% and Same Number of
Males 76.91%; Devote More Hours to Studies
women students arc intellectually
superior to men.
That is what, the report cards of
forty-eight men and those of an equal
'.umber of women in Washington
Square College of New York Univer
Eighty-three women had AV; 107.
B*a; 71, C's; 27. D's; 4, E'a, and I, F.
Among the e?jual number of men 46
had A's; 100. B's; 78, C's; 18, D's; 4,
E'a, and 2. F's.
The women, in other words, had al?
most twice as many A's as the men,
while the latter had nearly twice as
many failures ?s the women.
The marks. averaged. give the
women 84.4G per cent, and tue men
"6.91 per cent. It is not only in Wash- '
ingtou Square College that women's
grades are superior to men's. In Mid-!
dlebury College the percentage for I
women during the semester 1920-*21 |
was 83.02 pe?- cent, in comparison with
the 78.21 per cent average of the men..
The fact that more women are being
admitted to tin* Phi Beta Kappa than
men is cited as additional proof of !
their mental superiority. '?The biologi-!
cal reason for this." said Professor Ru- j
dolph M. Binder, "?s that men are morel
muscular and active than women. '
Therefore, since book education is a
static affair, the application to books ?
is less natural for men than for |
"Moreover, men'- hours are more
irregular than tho.se of women. While j
women are often engaged in study in
the evening, men go out."
J, E. Lough, professor of psychology
at the university, believes that it de
ner.ris on the kind of work as to
whether the man or the woman is the
bettor student. "In the mathematics.
government, economics and sciences
boys, excel," said Professor Lough.
"but in language work, literature and
English the girls are superior. The
reason is that practical -subjects are
favored by the boys, because they ex?
pect to use them in later life. The
average girl, however, does not expect;
t s use 'math' and science."
Statistics prove Professor Lough's
assertion. The favorite subject. o<" the
men is the mo-t disliked by the wom?
en, and vice versa. Out of 40 men
students, 14 gave mathematics as their*
best-liked subject and 12 English as
their most disliked. Out of an equal

something dignified for him to do in ,

The show ?s called "You'll Never
Know," and there aren't any Sanscrit
ers in it or any of the other foreign?

a part for him is a vexatious one.

A Message From The President
Of The Cadillac Motor Car Company
Year after year it has been necessary for
us, at this season, to caution prospective
buyers of the Cadillac Motor Car against
possible disappointment in the matter of se?
The necessity was never more urgent, as it
is our conviction that the months of May
and June, and the remainder of the year,
will witness the greatest shortage of Cadillac

The Cadillac Company is firmly committed
to the policy of building 8-cylinder cars
which will continue to be the Standard of
