Address to the Young Men's and Young Woman's Christian Associations, June 17, 1901


Miss Addams Points Danger.

In the evening there was a union meeting of the Young Men's and Young Women's Christian associations of the university, held in Cobb Hall. Miss Jane Addams, in her address, said:

"The dangers that lie in the path of a college woman are that she will allow herself to drift into the way of being unable to adapt herself to conditions as they are and that she is very apt to continually put herself in a class by herself and feel that she is a distinctive creation, totally unlike her sisters."

The Rev. Ernest M. Stires of Grace Episcopal Church also addressed the meeting, saying that "self-culture, self-control, and self-sacrifice" were the three most important words in guiding the life of a young person.
