has never emerged as a college, and Mississippi's is not yet standard after 30 years of life. Must Virginia attempt what 46 other states have not found and [appeal?]? (2) If a state founds an inadequate separate women's college, coeducation follows inevitably in the state for men. This happened in Mississippi. The University of Mississippi has been more and more thrown open to women since the founding of state college for women. The women have a right to the best at the hands of the state, and when they get a poor substitute they will be satisfied. Do we wish to make the University of Virginia coeducational? (3) A careful study of separate colleges for women of the highest grade (all private) shows that standard is tremendously costly. In fact the cost of establishment and maintenance, and particularly the cost of academic salaries has been so large as to be absolutely beyond the means of the state of Virginia. Statistics show that in most cases it costs these colleges more than twice as much to educate each of its students as the student pays, even though tuition fees have been steadily raised in the past ten years. These colleges are therefore dependent for their very existence upon private gifts and endowments. Virginia's college would receive no tuition fees from Virginia students, thus putting [on some?] larger burden on the state.
