"Not only has the campus changed,
but I've noticed that the spirit is
gone, too."
This lament of a returning alumnus
is nothing new. Traditions at the
University have been dying and be-
ing revived ever since the World War
era. There was a sad lack of inter-
est in the old traditions during and
after the war, which might be ex-
pected. As a student put it in a let-
ter to The Daily in November, 1919,
" . true Michigan was in the
service.' This student, W. C. Pal-
mer, '22L, believed ". . that the
Michigan spirit of yore lies dormant.
It is on the campus but is sleeping."
He went on to make an earnest plea
for a revival of that spirit, suggesting
ways and means. His efforts and
those of others were not in vain, for
the first of the "great revivals" be-
gan, with the establishment of "Tra-
ditions Day" in 1918, a gigantic pep-
meeting designed to acquaint fresh-
men with the traditions and instill
in them the desire to keep them alive.
The Daily's report of the affair stat-
ed, "The student body gave vent to
the pent-up enthusiasm suppressed
since pre-war days." ,
Students Did Best
For two or three years the students
did their best. They soon began to
relax, however, and again there was
a revival. Campus organizations led
the way. An indication of their seri-
ousness about the whole matter is the
"Report of the Traditions Committee
to the Upperclass Convocation" in the
spring of 1921. In this report the
committee listed a number of the
more famous traditions, recommend-
ing their revival.
This revival was no more success-
ful or lasting than the first had been.
"Traditions Day" remained, later be-
coming "Traditions Night," but with-
out its original force. By 1925 it
had become merely a meeting of the
freshman class to hear a few ad-
dresses and elect officers. The old
enthusiasm was gone.
Throughout the "Roaring 20's" tra-
dition made feeble efforts to rise
again, but never with much success.
Such hallowed old customs as Cane
Day, Cap Night, Class games, Senior
Benches, Toques, Swing-Out, the va-
rious prohibitions to freshmen-all
these and others were revived. Fresh-
than Pots especially were the sub-

jects of much controversy. The
Student Councif and others tried
vainly to force the yearling4 to wear
them. As soon as these efforts stop-
ped, the Frosh, in a sudden fever of
school spirit, demanded their. return..
But as a rule the traditions were not,
observed as they once had been. There
was a growing disinterest in them,
coupled with a growing resentment at
the abuses which some of them give
rise to. Damage to property and in-
juries which over-enthusiastic stu-
dents inflicted and received after ral-
lies andr during various extra-legal
encounters between classes were con-
demned. Swing-Out degenerated in-
to an excuse for drunkeness, until, it
was abolished in 1934, to be revived
.again in 1935.
Process Going On
This process of keeping Michigan
spirit alive in the form of traditions
is still going on, but it seems to be
ebbing at present. The freshman Pot
is out of existence: . women walk
through the front door of the Union
with impunity; and the Senior Ben-
ches are still here, but everybody sits
on them. Cane Day, Cap Day, and
some of the others are things of whieh
the majority of students probably
haven't even heard. Black Friday, of
old the foremost Michigan custom,
has been relegated to the position of
"something to amuse the old timers."
Last year the custom was revived in
a big way; this year, however, the
turnout of sophomores was micro-
scopic and that of the freshmen not
much bigger. "I Want To Go Back
To Michigan" is on the decline be-
cause of its references to Joe's and
the Orient, places which the more
recently entered' students did not
and do not know.
'Roll-Em-Up' Exception
One exception is the "roll-'em-up"
tradition, whose origin, unfortunate-
ly, has been lost. However, all those
who have been at Varsity Night cele-
brations will remember' the "raised-
arm" of Fritz Crisler, which, accord-
ing to Wilfred Shaw's "The University
of Michigan", goes 'way back to an
address given by the late William
Jennings Bryan in 1900, at which
time, after a fifteen minute ovation,
he raised his hand for silence, only
to see every student present wave
back at him. Many arrests were
The Swing-Out is still with us, and
may be here to stay if the old faults
don't reappear.
