A GOOD STUNT
"Flowers and carriages have been ta
booed lor the last three years at Junior
Proms. 1 he iast to put the ban on
these .accessories to the main event is
1912. 1 he Daily i’alo Alto believes that
the committees have been justihed in
their requests and everyone should com
ply.”
1 he above editorial appeared in the
Stanford paper March 2d, and clearly
indicates the attitude ol the great Caii
lornia college upon the question ol’ car
nages for tlie campus dances.
1 his custom is becoming established
here, m spite of strenuous but futile
opposition of the faculty and a great
majority of the student body, which
claim that it is destroying the old time
democracy and comradene.
Although the practice is pretty gen
erally participated in, the cold unro
mantic fact remains that few of us can
afford to attend parties in cabs. It is
a custom totally incompatible with our
average scale of living. If we Lake a
carriage, it means that either we or our
parents must sucrihce something of more
utility than the mere aesthetic pleasures
of doing "what’s right” and of avoiding
the walk to the gym of which we ord
inarily think nothing.
When, as is invariably the case with
the Junior from, the weather is fair,
the practice is robbed of its last shred
of excuse on the ground of utility, and
becomes a mere affectation. For the few,
whose allowances will permit any rea
sonable expenditure, objection to car
riages may seem a somewhat unreason
able but they are the ones who are es
tablishing tin' usage and to prevent the
college from being divided into distinct
social castes these should sacrifice them
selves and walk to the from.
The Junior class as host might proper
ly imitate Stanford in requesting those
students attending to taboo the car
riages. 1 his would establish a forcible
precedent, and would be a long step
toward the preserv at ion of the old Ore
gon democracy which, before till else,
certainly does not imply social castes
based on the -u/c ol one’s income.
I low many unprepared recitations did
Toddy excuse you from?
