A complaint was brought forth in the 1888 February issue of the Dickinsonian. According to those attended a certain church service on Sunday, "the billing and cooing of a certain sophomore and a co-ed" was found quite disruptive to others. They felt that the "silly antics of a love-sick couple" should not be allowed to degrade the college name. The display put on by the couples was so offensive to its viewers that a "stage or dime museum" was found more preferable.
