Neophytes Take Note; Oldsters Take Heed Oregon has lived up to the best collegiate custom in building up a. mass of traditions and a cizeble hunk of vocabulary more or less of its own. They are calculated to produce that “dear old days at Oregon” feeling in anyone who has ever spent a portion of his life on the campus. One of the customs which the war jolted is the wearing of class pants. Freshmen males are expect Hello Ducks T"J ■rt" /As always— You'll find flowers for all af occasions tr* ed to wear tin pants; sophomores, moleskins or jeans; juniors, clean cords, and seniors, dirty cords. Last year there weren’t enough males of any class to bother with the dis tinction, but this year should see a revival of the custom. Although no one at Oregon has come out against friendships be tween the two most prominent sex es, men and women do not sit to gether at athletic contests. At foot ball games, they sit in adjoining sections, and at basketball games they sit facing each other. Any breach of conduct on this score arouses the cry of “Pigger Pigger.” Pigging Defined A pigger is vaguely one who dates, and the university telephone and address directory is suitably called the Piggers’ Guide. Also on the list of special vo cabulary is the term “shackrat.” It refers to anyone who hangs around the “shack,” or journa lism school—presumably work ing on the Emerald. The Pioneer Mother and Father are, on first glance, only statues. But they have hidden talents. They continue to be statues until one of the very virtuous of womankind approaches. Then with all due re spect, Father doffs his hat and bows very low while Mother stands and curtsies primly. The Senior Bench is a fading tra dition. Seniors have all rights and privileges for sitting on it, but none of them ever bother. It’s a cement affair to the rear of Susan Camp bell hall. The Oregon seal on the north walk of Villard hall is polished ev ery spring term and is supposed to be %>y-passed by all strollers. Old Campus is, logically enough, the older part of the campus, where all the large evergreens are. Dur ing the week of Junior Weekend, it acquires special thou-shalt-nots but is treated quite casually the rest of the year. Oregon’s pride and joy is the Mill ilace, formerly the scene of colorful canoe fetes. Those who have done research on the matter say that the | University is the only one having | such a feature, but most of its fame comes from its weeping wil lows, picturesque bridges, and its canoeing facilities. Mill racing con sists of tossing the boys into the water, but the administration frowns upon the sport. Familiar landmarks such as Hendricks park, Skinners’ butte and the graveyard are famous among students who are very like ly to greet any mention of these particular places with something akin to a leer. Then there are the annual special social functions — Bunion Derby which is the opening marathon mixer, desserts which have became foodless pauses in the day’s sWSy, Homecoming when the alumni re live the good old days, Coed Capers and men’s smokers, the military ball, class dances, Junior Weekend, and a host of others.
