Few of them swear, but they rather admire th man who has an adequate and in genius vocabulary. Lies are ap proved as necessary social expedi ents. Chaperones are an inslltulion o benefit only to. the very young, fo girls have learned that chlval is not dead at all, but simply ha gone modernistic. Unless 20,000 young folks cai be wrong, these things are true and many another surprising Iran iitlon has come out of the Jazz age Having hastened the decline an., fall of Mrs. Grundy, the younge set now has set up its own socia government, and written its own declaration of independence.

If you couldn't swear at;least as well as they could, it would be better to forego the profanity. One bright young man said he always held back his best lines because girls are sharks at a pick-up and he tried to keep them from lifting his best phrases. Girls were almost unanimously against swearing, except a group from Park Avenue, who said "Sure." "I try not to swear in fwnt of men. I don't think they like a girl who does,"' said one girl. Coeds, It appeared, were mostly aga.nst this form of expression. Nice Girls Do Pet Felling came up for considerable attention, and the men showed much more emotion on the sbu- Ject than women. Violently Indeed did most of them declare that NICE GIRLS DO PET. A few felt that there should be some limitation, but the majority were opposed to any drastic disarmament. A young man from Back Bay stood quite alone on the subject, He said: "I do not know whether or not nice girls pet. but I do know I would be prejudiced against one who did." To the question: "Do you feel free to put your arm around a girl with whom you are not in love?" the replies were uniformly in the affirmative. "Certainly!" wrote one college student, furnishing his cwn exclamation point. Girls admitted that the chaperone still exists, but with her influence greatly diluted, and that she should be put up with at "mixed week-end parties, formal danc- et, for late parties in a man't. B P»rtment, trips to boys' schools, and wherever parents or college authorities ins'st upon It" . ,_ .. The Woman Pays Asked to define the chaperoncs' '""Si!?",.. 11 .

This double header reflected the modem emancipation of women. "If you and a young man happen to be traveling to the same pUce, Is It all right for you to go together, even If the trip l t » n over-night one? Could you stay at the same hotel?" Most girls fell It would be quite permissible, but it should not be planned beforehand. One girl said: "If it suited me,' another:' "It would- seem prlgg'sh not to," and a third: "It would be awfully silly not to." All the answers Indicated that girls have lost their illusions abou the dangerousness of men, but that the men still cling to the belief that they are wild creatures, un- lained by conventions o'clock at night. after 10 Asked, "Do you ever go Dutch treat with a girl to the theater, to luncheon or dinner " one youth wrote: "Yes, and I wish I could oflener than I do."
