Women's Vote OK'd by Slim Edge; Councilmen Canvass for Ballots

News article on the status of a student referendum that includes resolutions to clarify the status of women students at the University. The referendum to bar women from Student Council is "heartily approved," and the referendum to allow women students to vote passes by only a slim margin. The article notes that, "Ironically, the Student Council was organized in 1929 to combat a phase of female education."
