HEY, NONNY, NONNY!
Today sociology is leaving the sequestered backwaters of the classroom for open sea. Simmons students of sociology are hopeful that a tete-a-tete with the striking longshoremen of Boston will prove an enlarging experience for all concerned. Following at the tail of this scheme comes the opening of a love clinic by the sociology department of Northwestern University. The head of the department will endeavor to light the way of unhappy lovers whose full moon has waned. In the cause of science he hopes to learn a trick or two himself.
Friendly doors will open alike to couples already married, couples contemplating marriage; and couples not contemplating marriage. Field trips may be arranged if sufficient interest is shown, and section lists will be found posted down by the old boathouse. There will be a laboratory fee for the use of the department's motor cars and canoes, and a periodic report sent home monthly if the students wish it. The clinic will be strictly advisory in nature, not executive or legislative.
The Northwestern love clinic is only one instance of the interest in applied sociology that is manifesting itself in night extension courses everywhere. Northwestern should not take all the credit to itself, for its idea of love clinics is not now. After all, what are sorority houses?
