Description

This entry in The Messenger discusses some of the rules in Southern women's colleges. The entry suggests that colleges should treat women differently than convents. The entry also says that one look at the rules is enough to show that the whole system should be revised to provide women the same freedom as they have at home. The entry says that at Westhampton, students are not allowed to play jazz music on the drawing room piano.
