So, no; you would not.

Dean James 11. Tufts, of the University of Chicago, defends flirting ami coquetry.
2le says it Is an outlet for surplus energy, and that it tends to the development of the
Uglier and intellectual faculties, >g
Of course, he means the well-intentioned and conservative brand of coquetry, that
never passes the stage of a quiet holding of hands. It 14 fair to presume that th'
dean would shy like a yearling coH at such things as:
"Will the Chicago professor wearina glasses, on a South Side car, who
noticed a fat lady with a pimple on her nose, say where he can be seen? Ad
drew, ANXIOUS."
But that in flirting:, too. and if colleges arc to Mnctiod the reiine.l kiiul oi go*

Isn't it a dangerous subject, anyway; and especially dangerous for a learned man,
Jirlio ha« supposedly forgotten the delicate flavor of wild oats, to tackle?
We have in this country a great number of young men who pride themselves co
feting "wise." They know little of the conventionalities and niceties of life, and they
■pend their spare time in breaking down the teachings of mothers, who want their
daughters to grow up to be pure, modest", good women. They arc dangerous— not to
the girj who possesses common sense aud prudence, but to the young woman who find)
romance and (pice and excitement in making male acquaintances in ways not recognized
by respectable society.
Those things seldom end well. Often they become tragedies. They can in no sens*
fee considered harmless, when they serve to remove the barrier that society has placed
between the sexes. You can not stop flirting any more than you can force the peacock
from displaying his plumage. It It natural for a girl to court admiration.
But to >mit'tiou and encourage the ' outlet fur surplus energy is asking too much
