Frosh Guard Fire 'Makings;'
Neglect Dates, Sleep, Tests
By Bob Funk
Patriotic Oregon frosh men will
ignore coke dates, mid-terms, and
sleep this week in order to guard
the “makings” for the Homecom
ing bonfire, the ignition of which
Friday night will serve as part of
the kick-off for the coming week
Freshmen will enjoy all-night
sessions of peering deep into the
fog at possible interlopers on the
intramural field. In most cases
these will be revealed, under the
flickering light of a cigarette-light
er, merely as incoming patrols
from Hayward field or the Side.
However, it could be a band of
ever-expected hoodlums from Ore
gon State—and that's why the
^freshmen are there.
The nights will be divided into
two shifts—before midnight and
after. Everyone is expected to stay
awake and watch as dusk thick

dawn. It will be cold, too.
Reason for all this furor, which
seems to border on early Chris
tian martyrdom, is that OSC stu
dents have been so bold in the
past as to prematurely light the
Homecoming fire. Needless to say,
this occurrence is generally a cause
for much embarrassment.

Homecoming was revived in 1945.

ignited four days in advance of
