Wear Clothes, Coeds'
Housemothers Say, It, s
Too Hot, Girls Reply
By Fred Thompson
Coeds who have been trying to combat the local heat and
humidity are in confusion as to what sort of wearing apparel
is prescribed and proscribed by University authorities. Sev
eral have complained to this writer that they are not per-
mitted to wear sunback dresses without trie Doiero uacjceij.
"One would think that college women are mature enough
to dress themselves," observed ' : : "
one campus beauty.
"In coping with this Chapel
Hill heat, I place comfort before
modesty," another said as she
mopped her brow.
A check with the Dean of Wo
men's office revealed that there
is no official policy relating to
coed dress. A spokesman com
mented to the effect that women
who leave dormitories in shorts
or swimsuits are expected to have
dresses or coats over them. This
unwritten law is in existence on
many coed campuses and it has
been well-abided-by here without

back dresses want to wear them
with or without the boleros. And
at least half of over two dozen
coeds contacted in the Y court
would like to expose their should
ers in class if they chose to do so.
Four house mothers who were
interviewed were of the opinion
that such would be contrary to a
request of Miss Katherine Car
michael, Dean of Women, who is
now on a leave of absence. This
request which proscribed sun
backs without jackets for class
wear was passed on to the women
students by their house presi
dents. One housemother, in a chat
with this reporter, said, "The
women should realize that this
is primarily, a men's university.
On class, partially exposed wo
men would excite the men's ani
mal instincts rather than contri
bute to their intellectual enlight
ment and development."
Cultured gentlemen do not re
spect women "who bring the best
out in themselves in the worst
possible way" was the implied
viewpoint of two housemothers.
Two of the four contacted did
not particularly care fr blue
jeans. In fact one said, "I despise
not particularly care for blue
jeans were appropriate wear for
picnics. "The girls must be pro-
tected from chiggers and ticks.
And after all, more is covered
up." Coeds who want to remain
in the good graces of their house
mothers should not linger in the
parlors in such attire. " A parlor
is a parlor" is the way one put it.
Furthermore, i young ladies
must not enter or leave their

Both coeds and men students
are encouraged to have no fear
about attending the various so
cial functions slag. This policy
has been very common and most
acceptable in Chapel Hill dur
ing the summer months for
many years and is about the
only way for students to get
acquainted with each other. Co
eds especially should have no
fear as there will, at any func
tion, be at least a dozen hand,
