Now that women’s rules are get
ting their most thorough inspec
tion to date, it’s time
changed the rule requiring girls
to wear skirts to class.
Granted, there’s a certain
amount to be said for the female
leg and I am the last to object to
mini-skirts. But all the fussing
and tugging women do trying to
.yank a skirt down so their whities
won’t show is keeping me awake
Jl.y instructor is also having
more than a little trouble keeping
his mind on his business.
I’m all for keeping the Carolina
female female, but isn’t it about
time we let her catch up to the
rest of the countr.v?
Another point against the rule
is winter. Winter is cold, babv.
And while I think skirts are fine
and legs are great, the sight of the
average coed’s blue, goose-pimpled
knees on a cold winter da.v fills
me with more pity than masculine
Supporters of the rule sav skirts
keep Carolina coeds looking fem
inine. I hat s fine. If a girl wants
to wear skirts let her, but win-
force all the girls to? Can’t we
give the girl with uglv legs a
break? Can’t we let her cover
