sprint?, is thp highlight of a fresh
man's year at Oregon. For it is
then that the first year men paint
the large block letter “O” with yel
low paint. This huge letter is lo
cated on a slope of a neirbv hil!
which overlooks the campus - Skin
ner's butte. Tt is up to the freshmen
always to keep thi3 letter bright
and shiny. Also on Junior Week
end, the freshmen and the sopho
mores stage their annual tug-of
war across the mill race. I was
appointed chairman of this event
last vesr and the fiery rivalry be
tween the two underclasses reached
fever pitch before the "go" signal
to tie-in tugging was given. It
ended in a free-for-all last year, as
usual. The freshmen are always
more numerous because of the fact
that they consider themselves the
under dogs and turn out in greater
numbers. The outnumbered sophs
always attempt to contrive some
trick of making fools out of th"
first year men.
The coldest T got during the en
tire year was when I dived into the
mill race to help steer a float down
the waterway during the Canoe
Fete. It was almost 9 o’clock at
night and after a period of 15 min
utes in the murky waters, a fire
place’s glow felt pretty warm.
Eugene is located where it has
a good snow about once a winter.
It is always a wet snow which 3oon
melts, but plenty of fun in had on
the campus and streets when the
white blanket first falls. When Ihe
ice freezes on the pavement, stu
dents sometimes hail automobiles,
hitch sleds behind them and coast
all over tov/n. Dangerous, yes, but
youth must have its moments of

To all would-be fro3h, don’t let
this lengthy epistle scare you into
going to some other institution of
higher learning. I have attempted
to narrate to you in the most infor
mal manner, a few of the memor
able experiences I enjoyed as a
freshman — experiences which I
know you will equally enjoy. The
old-fashioned hazing is no more on
the Oregon campus. All of it is
capably supervised by school offi
cials. Nothing injurious in the way
of meting out punishments to
“green” freshmen is now left. Those
days are gone when youngsters are
blistered by paddlings so hard they
cannot sit down for days. Gone are
the days when fraternities resort to
cruel methods of downright torture
In their "hell weeks.” But still, on
the Oregon campus, enough of these
traditions remain to make college
what every young man and woman
thinks it will be before coming.
