For the good of morals and a liberal policy Harvard has repealed its "Two Women" Parietal rule, and has declared that it considers any third party, "sex unspecified," capable of handling the chaperonage end of feminine visits to the Houses. "If there is to be only one woman in a party," says the rule, the student "shall agree that a third person be present during the visit."
Of course this is all in addition to limitations on hours of visiting, permission from the House Master or Senior Tutor, registering in a book, etc. In fact it is a talented feminine guest and a talented host who can satisfy the red tape governing visits of girls to Harvard rooms. And it must be a very feminine, guest who would make it worth all the trouble.
It took some time to shake the Harvard Administration loose from its stand for full-fledged chaperones, and reactions after repeal of that law forced another rule saying no girl should visit a College room without the accompaniment of at least one feminine sympathizer. It must have taken considerable argument to bring them around to believing a "third-party" roommate would be able to handle the policing job satisfactorily.
We may be prejudiced by the liberal policies of Princeton and other colleges with which we are acquainted, but it is pretty hard to understand the grounds on which morality can thus be split up and classified. In fact we can hardly be blamed for indulging in a slightly self-satisfied smile because they stopped "legislating morals" on that subject here quite some time ago. -Daily Princetonian
