From the Kernel Flics of 1921
with formally make our bow to the University at large, but most
particularly to the masculine element in our midst I Not humbly,
however, nor reverently, nor even apologetically as the
contingent, we feel sure, undoubtedly expects us to do, but with
faces beaming with pride and self assurance and hearts aglow

have only the example set by the regular Kernel staff, to follow

body of honest citizens exists, than that
composed of our contemporary brethren.
They have requested
that in our issue we stick as nearly as possible to the path they
have so nobly hewn this year, and have beseeched us with
eyes not to lower the high standards they have steadily
maintained nor in any way besmirch the Kernel's good name lest
it reflect discredit on them. We have done our best. Believing

more and more impressed with the remarkable strides woman is
making in every land along every line. It is not our intention in
saying this to throw bouquets so directly at ourselves by any
means, but rather to take up the subject from a less evident phase
and call to the minds of our readers the great concessions that are
being made to us.
Foremost, woman has, by mere man, finally been accorded

resulted. We do not, however, lose sight of the fact that in all
probability the attendant calamity so confidently predicted, will
fall upon the nation in due time. Creatures who have so recently
acquired both soul and mind are not of a variety to be reckoned
with with any degree of confidence.
