Colleges Shortchanging Women, Stoddard Says CINCINNATI, Jan. 10. <£>)— The president of the University of Illinois said last, night that liberal arts colleges are shortchanging their women students with rag-tag courses of study. Dr. George D. Stoddard told the American Conference of Academic Deans that "the liberal arts college thus far has educated women largely by default." He said the curricula "resemble the offerings set up for men who have decided not to become teachers, engineers or experts In any field. Even women's colleges, which ought to emphasize home economics, shut their eyes to the fact that 80 percent of American women become homemakers for the most part or on a full time basis."
