Tradition

Early Thursday evening, March
21, 1952, the shrill blare of a
trumpet set off the most chaotic
riot in the recent history of the
University.
This was the date of the first
large-scale panty raid ever con-
ducted in the entire country. An
unidentified West Quadrangle resi-
dent was practicing his trumpet
at 6:30 p.m. on the first day of
spring nine years ago when he
suddenly was answered by a South
Quad trombonist and a loud
phonograph playing of "Slaugh-
ter on Tenth Avenue." Shouts of
"Knock it off," arose as the in-
dignant Quad residents streamed
out of South and West Quad-
rangles.
The entire police force was
called out to quiet the swarming
mob that was headed for Betsy
Barbour and Helen Newberry Halls
where the men broke into the
lounges.
But the mob surged down North
University St. toward Stockwell
and Mosher-Jordan Halls. Alice
Lloyd Hall had been warned. The
front doors were locked, but riot-
ers managed to enter through the
side doors.
Chanting Droves
Just when it appeared to be all
over, chanting droves of women
marched down the Hill for a re-
taliation raid. They swarmed
through the halls of the Union,
West Quadrangle and up to the
top floor of South Quadrangle
where they were finally stopped.
The Administration meanwhile
could do nothing to stop the on-
slaught. Dean of Women Deborah
Bacon sent the women home and
told the reporters then, "Boys will
be boys."
University officials did not take
disciplinary action against those
who participated in the seven-
hour riot. Dean of Students Erich
A. Walter released a statement
on the unexpected "raid":
Spring Madness
"The student demonstration was
a form of spring madness," he
said. "The term madness has the
implication of something uncon-
trollable."
Most of the students agreed the
spring weather had caused the
riot. Some added that "reaction
to University regulations" and en-
vy of the modern facilities of

South Quad had also been con-
tributing factors.
Since 1952 there have been no
similar incidents on such a large
scale. In the fall of 1956 on the
eve of the Michigan State football
game, an attempted raid on the
dormitories fizzled. In 1957 the
University witnessed another small
attempt.
Snowball Fight
There were no others until early
last spring when 300 West and
South Quadrangle residents were
engaged in a snowball fight. They
soon lost interest in the fight as
cries for a "panty raid" arose.
They descended upon Markley,
and some managed to enter
through the unlocked side doors.
Students also snowballed Alice
Lloyd and broke into the ground
floor of Stockwell.
No disciplinary action was taken
by the administration.
Two men were questioned about
their participation in the "panty
raid," but were later let go.
But the most recent such epi-
sode brought an entirely different
result from the administration
and Joint Judiciary Council. No
longer are panty raids considered
"spring madness."
