James president-elect of the Northwestern uni versity, presented bis first communication to the trustees today. On the subject of coeducation he said In part: There are many signs of a marked reac. tlon In the Dubllc mind on the sublect of coeducation. Friends of the movement may well view It with some concern. The tide seems In certain ways to have ebbed A pronounced reaction has set in. Not only has the system ceased tn make new converts, but there are indications that It Is losing ground In the very territory which It had so completely won. A new period of questioning is upon ua. A sort of vague prejudice has arisen In the country at large which Indicates a new attitude nf the pub lic mind toward the whole problem. The system is attacked on new grounds and from new points of view. We are. moreover, not left to merely theoretical criticism and vague suggestion as to what the public sentiment Is on the subject. This is evidenced in certain quar ters by some very Interesting external signs. The distinct alteration In the atti tude of a number of Institutions toward the subject Is indicated by their policy. The rapid growth of attendance at the women's colleges during the last few years Is olno a very significant fact. All these things and many others of like kind point to a serious crisis In the history of this movement and It behooves those who believe In coeducation to study the system with all seriousness. The grounds of discussion have changed entirely in the last generation. The old objections have lost their force and entirely new ones are now to the front. The notion thut women are incapable of doing college work so commonly urged a generation ago. has completely disappeared. The suggestion that young men and women cannot be trusted to observe proper relation In their social Intercourse has been exploded in view of the fact that the moral tone of co educational Institutions Is distinctly higher than that of tne community at large and Is certainly not inferior to that of schools for one sex alone. But, on the other hand, one hears oftener the claim that the Increasing number of women tends to feminize the Institutions where they are, In some cases to such an extent as to discourage the attendance of men. It is urged with increasing per sistence that the social detractions and dissipations, with their widening Invasion of the serious purpose that should go with school life, form a very serious problem; while others emphasise the fact that the broad difference In tho future careers of the two sexes should find a more adequate recognition in the college curicula.
