The Creighton Chronicle, Vol. 7 : April 20, 1916 (Classic Reprint)
Excerpt from The Creighton Chronicle, Vol. 7: April 20, 1916 The speeches you have made tonight, and the distribution you have made on your program shows that all of the genius and sense of propriety was not embodied in those who spoke unless they also prepared the program. I was interested in the speech made by the young lady who is a member of your school, and I think you will all agree with her that there has been a change in the attitude towards women. And it is a change that indicates progress and not retrogression. The old idea of the girl and the woman, as it prevailed among the boys in other days, is illustrated by the story of a family of all boys and no girls. The preacher was there to dinner one day and, as he saw those four boys around the table, he said 'to the head of the family: What a pity that one of your boys wasn't a girl. One of the boys spoke up and said: Who would have been her? I wouldn't have been her, Jim wouldn't have been her, John wouldn't have been her, and Bill wouldn't have been her. But I am satisfied that if that boy had ever been acquainted with such a representative of the sex as we have listened to tonight, he would have spoken with regret that he had not been chosen to play the part of the girl in that family.
