Bachelors Cotillon Date Changed Miss Owings, guest of honor, and Miss Cynthia Wilson Gordon pause at the poolside and to plan for the fall when both will enter BriarclifTe College. A DEFINITE break with tradition will occur November 23, I960, when the Eachelors Cotillon will be held that Friday evening after Thanksgiving Day instead of the first Monday in December. While no public announcement of the change has been made by the board of governors, the self-perpetuating group of the Cotillon which selects the debutantes annually, members of the Cotillon have been advised personally of the change. The board, including Mr. D. Stewart Ridgely, Mr. Carlyle Barton. Mr. James Mcllcnry, Mr. Charles Morton Stewart, Jr., Mr. if. Irs ine Keyscr 2d, Mr. C. Breckinridge Gamble 3d, Mr. J.

Travel Bv Baltimoreans Roger Brooke Hopkins, Jr., Mr. T. Courtenay J. Whedbee and Mr. Benjamin II. Griswold 3d, never announces the approved list of debutantes or the basis for their acceptance. Conflict With College That the board agreed to move the German from the first Monday in December is not surprising in view of developments m recent years. The first Monday in DccemrRT was satisfactory in the era when the education of most girls was completed at finishing school. But as more and more girls entered colleges, the date problem became more fwdent. Two years ago some mothers of debutantes protested informally against the traditional dale and recommended that the German be moved from Monday to Friday. This suggestion was prompted largely by deans of educational institutions who were opposed to students breakaig their ampus routine. The deans, more intent on scholastic actiw ties than on social calendars, in some instances informed parents that debutantes would lose points or marks if they stayed away from classes on Mondays and, possibly, the following Tuesdays. Arguments by parents that the Cotillon has been a major social event here since its founding in 1793 apparently had little or no effect on the educators. Hardship On Debutantes There were debutantes in recent years who were compelled to fly from the campus after clashes on Monday to attend the Cotillon and leave immediately afterward for school. Some changed from ball gowns to travel attire in Pennsylvania Station or in railroad cars. As college authorities became more adamant in their attitude and the hardship on the debutantes became more evident, it w as ob ious that a date change, if only as a trial, would come ultimately. Further, a change from Monday to Friday evening may be of advantage to escorts of the debutantes, who would enjoy a .Saturday morning of rest at home instead of Tuesday at business.
