The Detroit Free Press reports on the “young women, well dressed, and good to look upon” who recently dropped during several evenings, unannounced, at several Northwestern University fraternity houses to smoke cigarettes and play ragtime. “[A]ll admitted she was a ‘good fellow,'” but all apparently were worried about being suspended or even expelled “for entertaining the girl minus the necessary chaperone.”
Eventually “the girl was told that no matter how charming her visits had proved she must not visit any more fraternity houses at the university. She laughed and promised to stay away, refusing to give her name and address.”
UPDATE: One wonders, as our society evolves, whether there will come a day when a nice girl will be able to drop in on male students at a university without a chaperone.
