C'RLS IN A FIGHT
YOUNG WOMEN IN A SOUTHERN
Coeducation Is Not as Much Favored
as Formerly, Owing to the Kind of
Girls It Develops— Lose
The following from Indianapolis ap
peared lately in the New York Press:
In the most savage class "scrap" that
Butler college, a coeducational institu
tion, has ever -known, the senior and
junior class men were badly worsted by
the undergraduate girls, who captured
President Anthony of the senior class.
He and some of his officers were bound
by clothesline* to the iron beds of the
girts' dormitories. The affray has caused
a wide commotion in Butler, and many of
the seniors are nursing scratched cheeks
and heads bereft of hair.
The class feeling in Butler has been at
fever heat for several weeks, and dated
from the attack on the sophomore presi
dent, a girl. Last night Miss Rose Bil
lings entertained the upper class men In
her home, and on account of the attack
planned by the undergraduate girls the
date of the dinner was kept a secret.
Nevertheless, two of the senior girls
failed to appear at Miss Billings' dinner.
Toward the end of the "feed" the tele
phone rang and the two detained seniors
sent word to Miss Billings' guests that
they were captives in the hands of the
undergraduates in their dormitory.
The senior men said they would rescue
their class women at any cost, and they
sallied forth to the dormitory where they
were prisoners. They had to burst in two
doors before they reached the captive
girls, who were bound to one another.
The "dormitory" girls were a fighting
guard. They attacked the five senior
men like furies. They scratched and
clawed and kicked, and the men were set
upon when they could not resist the "dor
mitories" any longer.
"What shall we do with the culprits?"
asked a freshwoman.
"Let's tie them together and lock them
in your room."
One of the girls offered her pink bou
doir as a prison, and the four seniors
were bound with clotheslines. Then they
were tied to the iron bedstead of the
freshman girl and left there.
They yelled for help and witch hazel,
because their wounds were smarting, but
the younger girls jeered them in their
captivity and taunted them with these
"Oh. think of it! Beaten.by girls! You
would try to rescue your senior girls!"
Then class songs were sung by the vic
Finally the impropriety of having four
healthy seniors in the girls' dormitory
dawned upon them, and the girls were
only too eager to get rid of their prison
ers. With manicure shears the men were
released, and they walked to the nearest
drug store for liniments.
In the first place one wonders wheth
er this is true; surely if it was not
some denial would appear. In the sec
ond place one wonders what kind of
girls they were that took part in such
disgraceful scenes. And then one is
led to ponder upon higher education for
women, upon coeducation and the ap
parent results of it which are recorded
almost daily in descriptions of scenes,
like the above. It is not strange that
a general reaction has set in against
coeducation and that it is felt even In.
the public schools, where separate
classes for boys and girls are being
agitated. Much comment on the above
Is not necessary, as it speaks for Itself.
One argument used by those who claim
that these scenes are not directly
caused by the coeducational idea is
that girls who are inclined to do these
things will do them anyway and at
■whatever school they are placed. But
an affair of this kind could not happen
anywhere but at a coeducational insti
tution, and what makes it so bad is
that young women should be mixed up
with men in a vulgar scrimmage. Fan
cy a lot of girls kicking and clawing
young men as described in this clip
ping! It is hardly credible. Better no
education for girls if in the process
they forget their dignity, decency and
womanliness. All the education in the
world wouldn't help a girl who would
take part in a class fight with young
men. Better an ignoramus with self-

FASHIONS FROM VOGUE
Prepared Specially for THE GLOBE
When a maiden has but a limited in
come and contemplates a round of vis
its, which comprise a gay time by the
sea, and one quite as attractive in the
mountains, she naturally, has to have
in her wardrobe a standby gown, fit
for any occasion of dining or dancing,
and one- that will not need refurbishing
for every event. Today's model gives a
dainty frock of cream chiffon cloth
and cream repousse lace, and is a hint
worthy, to be-taken, as the two com
bined will last the owner through the
season as successfully as her inde
structible doll lasted in her earlier
days. The foundation, of course, is
white taffeta, over which is a deep
skirt of chiffon on which the full
flounces are mounted; the tunic shows
chiffon cloth with lace border and pan
els, the fullness laid in plaits at waist
line. The waist is of the chiffon cloth,
softly bloused beneath the deep bertha
flounce, and the neck Is finished by a
soft drapery of the lace caught by chif-
respect and dignity. The kind "of
wives and mothers these wild girls will
make.is not pleasant to think of. The
only surprising thing is that there are
parents left in this country who are
willing" and anxious to send their
daughters .to coeducational institu
tions, where they . become feminine
rowdies as these described above. As
an argument against the great Ameri
can idea of coeducation nothing could
be better than the publicity given the
disgraceful fights at colleges of which
we read so often. In "Chicago the other
night twenty college girls marched Into
a restaurant at midnight, demanded to
be fed, then piled the chairs on the

sleeves are in puffs with ruffles of lace
falling over the.-two below elbow, and
a little rosette is tucked away above
the top one. The girdle is of shot pink
taffeta and is very high - and tightly
drawn. Buttons, by the way, are being
widely used in trimming the summer
frocks. For the evening gowns gor
geous affairs in colored jewels are seen,
for the smart afternoon frocks enameled
and embroidered novelties, and for. the
linen dresses those of knotted -linen
braid and pearl quaintly carved. In
the knotted braid buttons the latest fad
is to knot a -contrasting braid with that
the color of gown, using the shade
in the pipings or .other trimming.
Taffeta is being used almost to the ex
clusion of all other materials in trim

silk making it wonderfully desirable.
No other silk has the firmness and
lightness of texture combined in it, and
it does not hold dust or fade quickly.

GOSSIP FROM GOTHAM
In these days of lavish wedding gifts
one might suppose a duchess who is
heiress to millions would send her
brother's bride something more costly
than a diamond sunburst of no especial
beauty. But the Duchess of Roxburghe
gave, to Miss Elsie Whelen a diamond
ornament only two inches in diameter,
and: all the gossips of Philadelphia are
criticising,: the gift Other presents
from, members of ■*** the Wilson ** family
were disappointing. However, the jew
-'--"'- y • "- •• "■ ~~
els Robert Goelet gave to his bride
were compensating. Mrs. Goelet had
two engagement rings. One, a large
ruby, was worn by her before the en
gagement was announced, and later
Goelet gave her ring with a large dia
mond supported by a fleur de lis of
diamonds. *' ■'-■• ??y
The riviere of emeralds the young
bridegroom gave will be seen at the
opera, of course, and will rank with
Mrs. Astor's stomacher and Mrs. John
R. Drexel's parure of turquoises. Mrs.
Ogden Goelet brought the necklace
from Europe, and It was the finest on
sale in Paris at the time. The value is
said to be $75,000. .Mrs. H. Orme Wil
son gave tumblers mounted -in solid
gold and the grandparents of Mr. Goe
let. Mr. and Mrs. Richard T. Wilson,
sent six gold plates. Probably the
daintiest gift of all was the jeweled
shoe buckles Mrs. William E. Carter
gave. These were broad buckles, set
with diamonds, and Miss Whelen wore
them on her wedding slippers. _ , *

good friends and she overlooked the
fact that the Thaws were not consider

when her husband, returned to the auto

the small boys. Mrs. Thomas that day
was wearing a beautiful picture hat
