Oregon Knight Pledges To Remove Classmates Night Work
Painting of Senior Bench
Is Wearing on Frosh
Freshmen Declare War on
Tom Stoddard, president of
the A. S. U. O., yesterday is
sued this statement from his
“I wish to make a direct ap
peal to the few students who
are apparently getting a ‘colle
giate thrill’ out of smearing
the senior bench with paint
every other day. The rule
established by precedent has
been that the freshmen should
clean this bench once or twice
a year, but when it happens
two or three times a week, the
joke is going too far. I am
sure that if the small group of
students who have been indulg
ing in this juvenile diversion
will consider the sense of ma
turity which college is supposed
to confer upon a person, they
will discontinue their childlike
Lawrence Bay, president of the
freshman class, said yesterday
that at the request of the Order
of the O, the Oregon Knight
pledges will today remove paint
from the senior bench for the sec
ond time within a week.
Smears of green paint were re
moved from the bench by fresh
men on Tuesday of last week. On
Thursday morning a fresh coat of
yellow paint was discovered where
the green had been. According to
the night watchman of the cam
pus, the vandalism occurred some
time between 1:30 and 2:00
Bay declares that the freshmen
are losing patience, and says that
if the bench should be painted a
third time, steps will be taken to
apprehend the offenders.
In this he is backed by Stod
dard, who says that an example
will be made of the pranksters if
their identity is learned.

“Conquest" is the alluring title
