Number 45 ELIOT WARNS ALUMNAE AGAINST SMALL FAMILIES (By N. C. W. C. News Service) Boston, April 21.--A warning that college-trained men and women are not living up to their duty to society to give chihlren to the world, and and that unless there comes some change for the better the result will be the virtual extinction of "educated families" was ounde:t by Dr. Charles W. Eliot, president emeritus of Har- vard, in a talk here before the Smith College alumnae of Boston. "Womcn's colleges in the United States," said he, "have still to dem- onstrate that the fertility of the race is not affected by higher education." "Statistics distinctly show," he con- tinued, "that educated men and wo- men, married, are not replacing them- selves. This is a thing that needs to be studied in colleges for men and' colleges for women, because if things go on as they lmve since colleges for women started and since colleges for men have been turning out so many bachelors or men who postpone their marriages, it means the ceasing of ed- ucated families." Dr. Elio said that he had recently been studying the Harvard quinquen- nial catalogue, and that he had noted that the disappearance of families among the alumni. The question of marriages and off- spring among college women was first brought up at the gathering by President Emeritus Seelye of Smith, who mentioned that Dr. Eliot was the first commencement speaker at Smith forty years ago, and that he had at that time submitted the question whether "in the eyes of men college education would impair the delicat and separate charm of women, and therefore decrease the number of marriages and diminish the fecundity of the race." Dr. Seelye was of the opinion that Eliot's question of forty years ago had been answered, and that college women "have married and brought forth children quite as often as other women." • It was then that Dr. Eliot came back with the declaration that the questiao had not been answered.
