Puddles in Corn Valley
Duck Changes Hands
Duck Changes Hands,
Our northern branch friends
from Corn Valley have swiped
Puddles, the Oregon mascot, and
the rally committee is all for try
ing to get him ... or her back
Where it belongs.
According to Jim McClintock,
who is custodian of this power
house on wings, Puddles was
swiped early Friday morning, and
shortly thereafter turned up on,
the Oregon State campus, much to
the glee of the agricultural majors.
In an article that appeared in The
Barometer, it was stated that
Puddles would be returned un
harmed .... but there is a sneak
ing suspicion going around that
the Duck will change color before
we get her ... he ... it back.
IVVho ever saw an Orange and
Black duck?

Puddles is gone and now our

being held captive by the Aggis aftr a brutal kidnapping plot, instigated
by the ruthless Buckteeth from the northern branch and successfully
