with Senior Class President Steve
Church and five other students who
put on entertainment during the
Intermission of the Senior Ball.
Hawk said that two women and
two men of the group of five had
been placed on "personal proba
tion" by himself and Mrs. Wick

in which they participated. A third
woman was prohibited from tak

The action paralleled steps taken
by llawlt fall term in which one
student wan barred permanently
from taklrtg part in campus enter
tainment following his appearance
at a Homecoming rally. Hawk said

"an avalanche of protest" from

Puddles, feathered mascot of I ho I nl\ rrillv of Orphan, was appar
ently stolen from tIn* campus by "aggie" marauders parly Thursday
\ report from Oregon State College received Thursday Informed
(lie l.merald that a large white duck bad “appeared” on the OSC
eamptiH. The ealler requested inlormatlon concerning the where
about a of I'liddles. A eheek with the home of Athletic Director I-co
Harris repealed that the duek was missing.
The tip came to the Kmerald when OSC Daily Barometer staff
man >lim Cluhhy ealled from Corvallis to inquire about the mascot.
He described the duek on the OS(' campus as “large and white.”
Asked whether the bird was a he or a she, (lahhv replied, “I durum
— I'm not that familiar with ducks.”
The prestige attached to capture of the mascot has its drawbacks,
however. At last report, Cluhhy was pluving nursemaid by feeding
the duck a mixture of oatmeal and water. Hi- said Ire had a hard time
finding anybody on the OSC campus—home of a large school of
agriculture — to tell him what to feed a duek.
Puddles is expected to put in an appearance at tonight's Oregon
OSC game in Corvallis' (.ill Coliseum.
IFC Nixes

its disapproval of the present
rushing-pledging compromise,
wi111 the Inter-Dormitory
t ouncil and appointed a com
mittee to study the agreement
with members of the f DC.
IKC president Bill Barber said,
“The present arrangement is not
working out for fraternities. It is a
one-sided system. Fraternities de
serve a better deal a fair chance
at freshmen.”
The plan now in effect is the re
sult of a compromise between IF'.!
and the IDC fall term when th'
"hands-off” policy, complete dlsa.v
soelatlnn of fraternities -with fresh
men, proved to be unenforceable.
The fall term agreement abolish
ed the provision prohibiting social
intercourse between fraternities
and freshmen and established rc
; strictions on rushing and pledging.
However, curbs wc rc placed on
participation of freshmen in fra
ternity activities with basic loyal
ties directed toward dormitories.
The Inter-Dormitory Council i.s
sued a letter Ke b. 20 recommcnd
ing that all rushing and pledging
be delayed until the beginning of
the sophomore year. Ti e dormitory
council said that halls can have no
continuity of spirit or hall organi
zation from year to year so long
as fraternities have pledges living
m dormitories while their hearts
belong to the fraternity.
The IFC criticized the present
“melancholy compromise ' because
