trying- to agree with Dr. .1. It, McCrurj
president of tho Norfolk club, upon a
candidate for president of the Virginia

Hammond Johnson, of this city, but .'ir

In discussing his declination he went

Professor Qraves's letter follows:
University ot Virginia,
Law Department,
January ill 131C.
lion isppu lluiiton, Richmond, Va.:
My Doar .--Ir. i am niad to sue tin*,
opposition hi the Richmond alumni of
lliu University it Virginia to lho|
r'ariy-Klson bill, a measure, in in
uptnlon, fraught with danger to tho{
Institution, if you will pardon mo. 11
shall take tho liberty to aiatc a row
facts and to give, brlolly my view on
tho proposition n?w before the Legis?
i'irm?Ah to ihn attitude of the
facility of the university: it cannot I
be correctly stated that a. majority j
ii tho faculty favored the strode Mil, i
01 that they favor the present hill.1
It Is true that some time ago the-j
matter was brought before this faculty
by Dr. Alderman und certain r-i-oi . ?
Lions prepared by him were adopted,
with only live dissenting votosj but
these resolutions differed materially
Crom the Strode bill and from tho
present hill. The faculty, after full
discussion, voted to conllno coeduca?
tion (In the sense of mon and women
uelng taught in the same classes and
same room, by tho same toucher, at
the same time) to the graduate de?
partments, excluding '!0t only the
undergraduate department, but nlsu
the professional .-sellouts of law, modi- j
idhc. engineering and ngrlculturo. '
Further, a decided preference to coll
tlue coeducation In the graduate de?
partment t" iioctor of philosophy iex
.ludWig master ot urtsl was diBcubsuu;
but my recollection Ik that this did
not come to an actual vote, it being
suggested that it should be left for |
future consideration.
lllll Permits Coeducation
Second- -The present hill certain!)
permits coeducation (in the senaol
i.boee) in the profe1 islonal depart?
ments, it is only forbidden "In the]
undergraduate courses in the unlver-|
sity"; nut allowed only In the graaii
iite tourstt Now whether law, oto.
sail ho called strictly graduate roursca
ur not. they are certainly not under?
graduate courses; and HO coeducation
In them is not forbidden. This seems
loo plain for argument; but 1 navi
leard It claimed that the bill does uoi
allow coeducation In the professional
s.c!iools. Certainly if this is the in?
tention, it should be made plain by
Third?With the exception of five
men. the University of Virginia fac?
ulty are opposed to coeducation In
the full sense of the word as It exl'its j
p.t the University of Texas and the
VVostern State universities. Dr. Alder?
man I? himself opposed to ooedue?- j
tion In this sense, as he has repeatedly |
Sectored to the faculty, to the body
at* students assembled at thu Unlver
lity Hour und, 1 think, to tha com?
mittees of the Legislature. Indeed,
Ids iKisItlon Is fixed and decided, based
not merely on the "genius of the uni?
versity" and "the modes of thought"
prevailing here, but on broad grounds,
"physiological." "psy chologlcal," etc.,
stc, as he declared to the Student body
>n the occasion above referred to. 1
know that the groat mnjorlty of the
faculty agree with him, nnd only
favor co-ordination because they I
Imagine It Is not coeducation, and will [
trot merge Into It as the years go by.
If now you arc convinced that thel
hill Is largely coeducation as It stands I
(with nearly nil of the evils), and that
It Is but an entering wedge (as I
surely believe) to complete coeduca?
tion, the next Legislature ha.? only
strike out three or four lines of thel
present bill If It be enacted Into law;
then the opposition can claim that If
thoy realized the true meaning of this
bill nnd Its Inevitable tendency, thej
whole faculty (save flvo). with Dr.

or the Confederacy. I think this prop-!
osltlon should unlugonUc ihe "co-ordi?
nate college" plan. Of course, ut pres?
ent the .State has not tho money for
cither. Uut Dr. Aldorman has calcu?
lated that the locution here will only
savo L'S cents In tho dollar, and. tho
tstulo would better wait until It etui
afford tho difference for a separate
school, which would help the women
without harming the university. I
Fifth. That tho co-ordlnato collegeI
would harm the university 1 think can [
l>e demonstrated. This university wan i
established uu u men's school, and the
situation Is very different from thut
where, us at tho University of Toxaa,
.1 school lit Coeducational lrom tho
start. Dr. Alderman has recognized in
this respect tho "genius loci'' und "th??
modes of thought" here. I believe thut
girls in uvldenco everywhere would ai-i
ways be resented by our students. i
Aliimul Oiipen'c Agitation.
Again, i believe the ?real majority
of our alumni ore opposed to th'i pres?
ent agltutlon, whether called oondiioa
llon or co-ordination. Tblc change
will chill their ardor, nnd no Institu?
tion can afford to alienate the alumni.
Besides, It win nover be possiblo, even
though a substantial difference does
e.\lBt. to persuade tho general public,
with a catalogue containing the nujncs
of 'Mao," "Mnyme." "Kitty." etc. that
the Institution is not coeducational in
the ordinary nonse with which they
are familiar. This will do us harm, Vi?
tt 1? certain now that thevo Is a reac?
tion against coeducation and a demand
lor a ochool of high university grade
lor mon only. About half of our 'in?
dents arc from other .States, many of
ihoni from the West. Who can tell
how many of them arc attracted by the:
v< ry lact thnt there Is ono place where
they heod not mingle with women as
coeds? Morn seriously, perhaps, tho
university will suffer from the appro?
priation by tho women of a teaching
force, part of thoin at least, for part
of their time. What Is thus tukeu fori
the women will be taken from tho men, I
who have not been suppuuud to receiveI
too much instruction. Nor have tho|
professors been suposed to have Idle I
lime on their hands to bestow for com?
pensation on other schools, co-ordinate |
or otherwise. One can readiiy see thci
lure Of this extra pay. with low salaries I
and the high cost of living. No mutt
can serve two musters, nor one master
and a mistress, where the latter has a I
tiuparate establishment and tho njacterj
needs all tho servant's time, ami yot ,
.-says confidently that out pro
lessors can touch tho women also, and
ought to do BO, because such high grade? |
teachers cannot be found elsewhere!
Again, co-ordtnalloit means res an-I
gustu doinl for the university. Waiving I
the question of tho .State's appropriation,
now about private endowment'/ Here.
again, - mu.>k our visitors must
o-.-tlr themeolvcs and beg the money:
50 the next million Dr. A. gets will hs
lor tho oo-ordlnatos. The- university
needs all the- money it can got. Why
not lot the prcHldc-nt of a separate
?-omon'a college and lu visitors do
their own begging?
Seventh. And now, in conclusion. Just
a word ?s to the university belatedly
railing Into line and doing what has
alroady been done almoat everywhere
(li if this argument has force (and
it suggests an. Inquiry whorTaer the.
university's success and prestige were

in spite of them). It dermanJo coedu?

swers: (a) Those schools are all highly

and am not dependant on State appro?
priations; (h) they are. connected with
lnstltutlonn In large eitles where the
comparatively smull number of women
exerts llttlo Influence on the character
of the Institution. Here In our "aca?
demic village" all thlu would be- dif?
ferent, und the presence of the women
everywhere (save with tho men In the
Mime lecture room In undorgraduuto
Courses) could not but profoundly In?
fluence C.-H, university life. That life
would become epicene, to the Injury, In
my judgment, of both Hexes. No .Stata
has ever catabllnhed two universities
side by side, one for men and the other
lor women, supported by State appro?
priations. Coeducation Is more eco?
nomical, and If we arc to go as far an
the Baiiy-Rlson bill provider, I think
wc would better go the whole length
and frankly coeducate. The boys and
girls are- together on the lawn, under
the arcades, with tho same Loacher?

elbow njid Jostle ono nnoth.ir us they

With so much coeducation, who can
doubt that there will soon be more?
As the financial side: presses, tho uni
verelty will be expected more und
more to tako over the annex, arid a
?hange in the law c&n provide at any
tlmo for fullor coeducation. Jin must
la; a rash man who. not believing in
coeducation, is yet willing to ink- I
such risks. Perhaps the women hope |
for It as a consummation devoutly to
