How Class Scraps are Conducted In Eastern
The college campus was the scene of
the annual class rush between the
freshmen and sophomore classes of the
of Friday last. WKIleItHowlH4Mf
be a matter of ancient history to every
O. S. U. student, yet lor the benefit of
these who may not be so fortunate It
will be the duty of the Lantern to shed
some light on the subject and try to
explain how it all happened.
As is usually the case on such oc
casions there were many uppsr class
men assembled on thi campus dilat-
ing on all the unsuspecting frcshics
they could run across telling them
how necessary it was to defend them
selves against the dauntless sophs
and make a name for their class. Many
visitors were sauntering over the cam
pus during the afternoon, all expectant
and wondering when the rush would
take place. It was quite noticeable nil
that day that sweaters predominated
over linen in the garb of the under
classmen, and everything betokened
excitement and fun iii the evening.
About 4 o'ciock the freshmen were
seen congregating in the chnpal to pre
pare for the onslaught while the gym
nasium appeared to be headquarters
for the sophs. After n little over half
an hour's waiting a delegation of eopbs
met President Thompson at the en
trance of the main building, where he
received their challenge and carried it
to the freshmen. It was promptly ac
cepted by the freshies, and the sophs
quickly withdrew to their place in the
field to await the oncoming freshmen,
who were linked arm in arm and ad
vancing down the roadway that leads
from the main building to Biological
Hall. The sophomores were massed
In a long column of fours, and met the
freshies on the run. The opposing
forces came together with a rush and
all was confusion and a struggling
mass with no apparent advantage on
either side for a tim By a shrewd
bit of generalship the sophs had placed
the cane in the hands of the rear fours
and before the unsuspecting freshmen
knew what was up, the rear of the
3ophomore column, bearing the cane,
swung around and In a sort of revolv
ing wedge formation cleared the fresh
men's column. When the dazed fresh
es recovered themselves, the cane was

about iwenty-five feet from their goal

forces by their captain and uppsr
classmen, they lost ground and, some

up in dospnlr The fifcrco strugglo had
lasted twelve minutes when President
Thompson appeared on the scene and
threw up his hat as a signal that time
had been called. Ho announced that
Inasmuch as tho cane had reached the
freshmen's territory, the decision
would have to go to tho sophomores.
Thus ended tho annual rush so dis
astrously for the freshies and so glor
iously for the sophs.
The President secured the cane and
carried it to the entrance of tho
Chomlcal Building, whero ho con
gratulated the two classes on their
good work. At the close of his speech
and before the crowd dispersed, three
cheers were given for each class and
O. S. U. with that vim and enthusiasm
which betoken that degree of college
spirit we have been hoping for.
The freshmen outnumbered tho
sophomores three to one, but wero
outgeneraled and lost through tho
clever tactics of their opponents.
While ihe contest was spirited, it was
characterized by lest; violence and hos
tility than is usually the case on such
occasions. No one was seriously hurt
in the struggle. The President re
tained the cane until Friday night,
when it was given to Mr. O'Brien of
the sophomore class.
A new epoch has certainly been
reached in college lifo and class spirit
which we firmly believe is largely due
to the wise policy of our beloved
President. The Lantern.
