campus territory.
When Eugene had “some 3,000 in
habitants” and was “situated amid
st scenery of much natural beau
ty,” (reads the 1887-8 catalogue)
students were forbidden “to enter a
brewery or a saloon,” or to “dring
any intoxicating liquor at the Uni
versity or while on the way to or
from the University, except on the
prescription of a physician.”
A perhaps equally radical differ

Others even ignored the safety of lights and traffic officers at intersections
