The Students’ Association, “recognizing that smoking among women is not established as a social convention acceptable to all groups throughout the country, hereby affirms that smoking is not approved at Vassar and requests the members, in a spirit of courtesy and loyalty to the best interests of the college, to use their own sense of personal obligation in complying with public opinion as herein expressed.  Because of the danger of fire, smoking in any college building is forbidden to faculty, students, employees and guests by order of the administration.”     The Vassar Miscellany News
