lottesville? Will not the president and the present faculty of the university remain? Will they not continue to be the dominating influence over the life of the university, including the co-ordinate college? It is to be expected that the dean and the instructors of the co-ordinate college will revelutionize the spirit and customs of the university. One of the greatly proclaimed advantages of the co-ordinate plan is that the university professors will be available for the co-ordinate college work.Will they not carry the same spirit and same ideas to the girls that they give now to the boys? The State cannot afford so costly an experiment as the making over of the atmosphere of the University of Virginia, at the additional risk of the success of the college for girls, and the supply of high school teachers in the near future. A co-ordinate college at the University of Virginia will pattern after the set the same standards that the boys now have. There will be the same standards of dress and social expenses generally as now prevail, and the same viewpoint of life and of activities will be dominant. There is no ground to believe that there will be, comparatively speaking, any larger percentage of female high school teachers furnished by the proposed co-ordinate college than there are male teachers furnished by the university today.

Five--Involves radical change of policy: The State does not recognize co-education today as the proper method for her children beyond the high school grades, and at that age they live at home with their parents. Dr. alderman declares himself unalterably opposed to co-education. There is a great division of sentiment on the proposed plan. Not only do the alumni and the student body of the university oppose this plan, but numerous educators also. Why not adopt a plan upon which all can agree.

The issue is not whether women shall have equal opportunities with men? The issue is whether the policy and belief of Virginia, for the past shall be brushed aside and girls and boys of college be educated together.

ALL AGREE THAT GIRLS SHOULD BE GIVEN A COLLEGE EDUCATION. THE ONLY QUESTION IS, "WHERE SHALL IT BE GIVEN?"

FOR THE BEST INTERESTS OF THE LARGEST NUMBER OF GIRLS AND FOR THE BEST INTERESTS OF THE PUBLIC SCHOOL SYSTEM IN ALL ITS DEPARTMENTS, THAT COLLEGIATE RAINING SHOULD NOT BE GIVING A OR NEAR THE UNIVERSITY OF VIRGINIA, BUT IN AN INDEPENDENT INSTITUTION, AN DTHAT INSTITUTION SHOULD BE AT SOME ONE OF THE PRESENT NORMAL SCHOOLS, WHICH SHOULD BE CHANGED INTO A COLLEGE FOR WOMEN.

THIS FOR TWO REASONS.

First. Because such collegiate advantages as the great majority of our girls require and can embrace can be furnished by the State at much less expense at any one of the normal schools than at the university, and the cost of living has been already fixed at a low rate.

Second. Because there must be a teachers' training department, and such a department is already established at the normal schools, and it would be expensive and needless reduplication to establish another normal department at the university.

POST GRADUATE WORK

There is no objection on the part of this writer to opening the post graduate classes of the University of Virginia to women. When women and men have passed through college they have usually attained sufficient maturity to do post graduate work together, and obtain good results. It would cost nothing for the State to open the graduate department of the university to women except at most the building of a dormitory for women, the rentals of which would pay most of the fixed charges.

Why not settle the matter in that way? Then the girls would be able to get both collegiate and university training at a minimum of expense and with a maximum of results to the State, both the women and the public schools of Virginia.
