Max 0 1Rell and Amorous Students What will American college, students, male and female, think of the following? The Principal of the University College of North Wales (Great Britain} has sent a circular to the newly registered students with regard to the relations between the men students and the women students attending the college. The regulations are mentioned, and the letter states that "loyal compliance with them is essentiaJ to the well-being of the college as a place of mixed education, and it should be clearly underjstood that the Senate is obliged to view any deliberate breach of them as a serious offence, and that students offending in this respect render themselves ¡;able to rustication and even to expulsion." The rules are as follows — Men students may not (1) met women students by appointment or walk with them; 12) accompany women students to and from the college; (3) walk with women students in the college grounds; (4) visit women students in their lodgings or receive visits from them. Reasonable intercourse between men stu- dents and women students is permitted (a) at authorised Social meetings within the college; (bl on the college fields during the progress of sports and games; (c) in the col- lege itself for business connected either with the college societies or with class work. In conclusion, the circular states: "I de- sire to ask for your co-operation in securing for these rules that loyal support on the part of the students which is so necessary to the existence of a healthy social life in the col- lege, as well as to the standing of the col- lege as a public institution." Compare these regulations with those of the American university colleges, where men and women go through the same curriculum f of studies, in the same building, under the same masters, in the same class-rooms—nay, better than that, placed on every bench thus: a. bov. a girl, a boy, a girl, and so on all over the room; enjoying their gf.mes and walks together, visiting each other, even living in the same boarding houses, with this only 're- striction, that at nine o'clock in the evening the ladies must retire to their apartments. Is this system fraught with any danger? Why, no. The more you separate the sexes the more attractive you make them to each other; the More difficult it is for them to get at each other the more piquaat it makes the whole thing. I have always envied Spaniards, who have I to study strategv and politics in order to get at the women they love. The bribing, the taking-in of the duenna, the love-letters sent inside ixtkes, and what-not, why, all this is just what love lives on, the very fare pre- scribed by young Dr Cupid. The more freely you allow the seies to mix together the more used to each other they get. It takes away from their intercourse all piquancy and cur- iosity. It is the Bartholof. who make the Rosinas. Nothing suggests liberty more than a prison. Nothing will put more suggestions into the heads of young men and women than a sys- tem which savs to them that it is not proper for them to be seen walking together. 1 11 Just fancy! Here are young men and wo- men who may dance together, but who may not. walk together. I have always thought that it was the ,\merican system of education which caused American, men to entertain so much respect for women and to treat them with such politeness and attention, and which, on that very account, enabled the youngest girls to go about in such p.-rfect freedom and security and to queen it all over the United States.—' Max O'Rell, in the "New York Journal."
