The article on the right is composed of the rantings of at least 20 newspaper editors and 15 university presidents concerning the cultural relevance of the Flapper and the cultural changes she had brought forth. Most of those interviewed recognized that a revolution was a-foot but the flapper herself was not a threat to the foundations of society. The editor of The Tartan (Carnegie Institute of Technology) wrote the following:

"Of course girls are wearing shorter skirts than they have ever worn before. But what wholesome, clean-minded man would not rather see a woman in a sane, short skirt, with plenty of freedom to move as nature intended she should, than in one of those 'sheath' creations which emphasized her every contour while hobbling her movements almost beyond endurance, sweeping the ground in an attempt trip her at every step. And yet, we are supposed to have become so much more immodest with innovation of the sensible short skirt."
