Student leaders today expressed
their approval of the borough
council’s, decisioi) to enforce the
ordinance against overnight park
ing as borough officials pointed
out the need for such a safety
Arnold C. Laich ’4l, All-College
president, praised the making of
Locust and Frazier street into one
way streets as relieving .dangerous
congestion. “The overnight park
ing regulations should present no
serious student problem, except
perhaps - on big dance "weekends,*
Laich said. ■
William B. Bartholomew ’4l,
senior class president, was of the
opinion that the ordinance would
not seriously affect students.
Borough officials intimated that
townspeople, with garage facili
ties available but unused, would
be the objects of the drive. They
poitned .out that overnight park
ing is a serious hindrance to fire
protection and traffic safety.
Violators of the overnight park
ing ordinance will be served a
warning on the first offense which
will require their appearing at the
borough offices or paying a $2
fine. Second offenders will be
fined $lO or imprisoned for five

Kappas Throw Wafer
On Jubilant Marchers
An orderly pajama parade from
Jordan Hall to the women’s dorm
itories last night climaxed an en
thusiastic first day of customs en
forcement yesterday in which,
freshmen were hazed more inten
sively than at any time in the last
The evening pajama parade was
a success for the frosh until their
off-key crooning outside the Kappa
Kappa Gamma house. The unap
preciative Kappas, after hearing
a few discordant notes, responded
with buckets on buckets of water
and not a freshman escaped a
The campus echoed with off-key
renditions of College songs and
shouts of “Button, Frosh” all yes
terday afternoon and last night a
crowd of 500 gathered on Co-op
Corner for a half hour period of
hazing highlighted by freshman
speeches and demonstrations.
Originating in Jordan Hall about
9:45 p.m., the parade was organ
ized under the direction of Peter
Kronis, hall president, and the 60-
odd marchers proceeded to Old
Main, Mac Hall, Atherton Hall,
and back to the dorms.
The marchers were enthusiastic
ally received by the freshman co
eds in Mac Allister Hall. One of
the coeds reported, “We had __to
put out all the. lights when they
came, blit the girls thought the
-whole -thing - was Jots of fun. The
boys were dressed in pajamas,
sang ‘l’ll Never Smile Again/ did
a dance, and then went away.”
At Atherton' Hall, one coed re
ported being told that Atherton
Hall coeds were very unresponsive.
She said that, as a result, the par
ade did not remain there long.
Henry Meissonier didn’t wear
any white socks yesterday after
noon, and therein lies a tale.
Whether Henry was the cause
of or the victim of some of the
■most enthusiastic freshman hazing
practiced on campus in the last
several years is a moot question.
Henry showed up in front of
Old Main without his socks only
an hour after customs went into
effect. Discovered by Jack Kearns
and Wade Meri, vigilant football
players and stern upperclassmen,'
Meissonier was shown the error
of his ways and some 50 frosh
were gathered around him for a
good, stirring round of Farmer
in the Dell. Old Main pealed twice
during the ceremony but didn’t
crack a smile.
Hundreds of delighted upper
classmen basking in weather
which was fair and warmer for
one of the few times in the College
year—enjoyed the ceremony from
the Old Main steps and set off to
spread the gospel around the
The whole atmosphere, upper
classmen from the seniors down
agreed, was like nothing they had
ever seen before but like some
thing they-wanted to see more of.
Two or three were heard to re
mark that in one afternoon they
had seen more hazing than in all
