Annual Slide Rule
Dance Is Symbol
Of Ancient Rivalry
Dating back to the days when both
lawyers and engineers were taught in
the same class rooms and the now ex-
tinct feud between the two schools
was very much a thing of the pres-
ent, the annual Slide Rule dance, to
be given by the engineering school
April 2 and the large slide rule, pos-
sessed by the engineers, are the only
reminders of the once so violent riv-
alry between the two schools.
Three times a year the feud would
present itself in actual physical out-
breaks. The annual spring athletic
contests between the two, the tradi-
tional Swingout just before gradua-
tion and the evening of the Slide Rule
Dance were the recognized occasions
for the outbreaks.
The arguing participants and spec-
tators of the athletic contests would

continue their quarrels all the way
up State Street to finally climax the
matter with a free for all on the
campus proper.
After the Swingout ceremonies, the
engineers considered it their hallowed
duty to prevent any lawyer from des-
ecrating the sanctity of the engineer-
ing arch with his presence and ac-
cording to the stories told of those
days, the engineers were not prone
to verbal persuasion.
The Slide Rule dance was the oc-
casion of the third conflict. The
lawyers held their annual ball, the
Crease Dance, the same night as the
engineering ball and the two rivals
vied with each other to outdo the
One year, a group of playful en-
gineers wandered over to their rivals
dance and left a "stink bonb' 'in their
midst. The Shysters, in the midst
of such confusion, succeeded in re-
taliating by thoroughly dousing the
intrepid engineers with water which
they had not bothered to cool and
the feud was on.
Each year the rivalry increased and
occasionally such weapons as anti-
quated eggs were used to carry on
the rivalry at a greater distance. With
both groups fighting for prestige, the
feud became more pronounced, but
with the erection of the Law Club,
the lawyers moved to the other side
of campus and the feud became a
thing of the past.
The large slide rule which was for-
merly used to grace each Slide Rule
dance has now been locked in the
basement of the Union by the engi-
neers in remembrance of the old tra-
