ootball Traditions Vanish
.s Students Turn Serious

I' I--

By FREDDI WINTERS
Football - the perennial -goes
a, but with the advent of in-
'eased enrollments and seeming-
-ore serious students, many of
ie old traditions surrounding the
ring" have vanished.
No longer do students snake-
mce through State Street thea-
es on the eve of Michigan foot-
,ll victories. No longer do Uni-
rsity of Pennsylvanians hear the
tout, "Rowbottom," which was
e signal for huge, chaotic pre-
%me demonstrations.
* * *
NOT TOO WELL known in
.ese parts, Rowbottom is a Penn
adition dating back to the late
00's.
Rowbottom was a Penn stu-
lent whose chief claim to fame
vas a roommate addicted to fre-
uent and regular benders. The
wo lived in a large men's dorm
ocated at the intersection of
ive of Philadelphia's busiest
treets.
The boozy roommate, who has
mained unnamed throughout
e ages, would come staggering
me in the wee hours, and, in
ed of support, stand outside the
m shouting, "Rowbottom, Row-
ttomt Come and get me!" until

the harried Rowbottom came and of every Rowbottom, as the cus-
claimed him. tom came to be called.
* * *

AFTER NUMEROUS repetitions
of the incident, the boys in the
dorm lost patience with the rac-
ket created by the lost lush, and
the shout, "Rowbottom" became
the signal for a rain of old shoes,
water, books, and epithets on the
poor fellow's already addled head.
Enterprising cheer leaders
soon discovered that a good way
to rouse students for pre-game
rallies, was to stand in front of
the dorm and shout, "Rowbot-
tom." At once students would
rush to their windows ready to
bombard Rowbottom's hapless
roommate.
The cheerleaders would take
advantage of the students' bellig-
erent mood, inveigle them from
their studies, and fill the campus
and vicinity with roaring, shouting
Pennsylvanians.
* * *
BONFIRES LIT the scene of
gaiety, and sometimes destructive
pranks. Since all the trolleys in
West Philadelphia pass through
the five-way intersection in front
of the largest men's dorm, trolley
de-railing became an integral part

Each year, with the advent-
of the football season, came
Rowbottoms, raucous and rough.
Then, in 1942, University offi-
cials put a stop to the practice.
Returning students in 1946
staged the last big Rowbottom in
an effort to renew traditions of
pre-war days. Friday night be-
fore the Penn-Army game, Penn
students ran wild from 7:30 to 11
p.m. in what was one of the Row-
bottomest Rowbottoms in Penn
history.
WEST PHILADELPHIA traffic
was tied up for five hours. Fire
trucks, come to put out the huge
bonfires, were dismantled by
souvenir-hunting students.
Penn lost the game anyway,
and the fire department had to
issue a plea for students to re-
turn equipment,
And the University officially
ended Rowbottom by threatening
anyone participating with expul-
sion.
Job Mee tin
Will BeHeld
Annual registration for 1949
graduates with an eye to a job, will
be held by the Bureau of Appoint-
ments and Occupational Informa-
tion Monday and Tuesday in
Rackham Lecture Hall.
February, June and August
graduates interested in teaching
will meet at 4:10 p.m. Monday,
while those interested in a general
position will meet at the same
hour Tuesday.
The Teaching Division of the
Bureau is especially anxious to
place students in that profession.
They have been getting calls for
teachers from both this country
and abroad.
Requests are also beginning to
come in for this year's graduates
in the general fields of occupa-
tion.

Daily-Bill Ohlinger.
REALLY MOVING AOUND-Although many a car has made a
left turn off State Street onto Packard, it's not very often that
a nine room house, with garage trailing behind, has the oppor-
tunity. One man in front directs the truck while telephone linemen
make sure the roof clears the wires, and two students on a
motorcycle have the distinction of overtaking a moving house.

being.
INDIVIDUAL groups sponsoring
each of the displaced persons will
have to accept full legal respon-
sibility for them, respectively. A
place in the central organization
will be reserved for a representa-
tive from each of the sponsoring
groups.
Stuwents from various organi-
zations who served on the
planning committee will help to
launch the new group at its or-
ganizational meeting in a little
over a week. Prof. Carlton
Wells, of the English depart-
ment, will serve as adviser for
this central organization.

MISSISSIPPI STATE, Sud-
duth's alma mater, was among the
first schools to sponsor a displaced
4tudent. Sudduth has obtained
scholarships and general aid for
other of the students in such
schools as Barnard, Bennington,
Eastman Conservatory of Music,
Dartmouth and Centenary College.
Six displaced students were en-
rolled in Dartmouth this fall
through the sponsorship of tle)
Undergraduate Council there.
General maintenance of the stu-
dents has been provided with the
aid of fraternities and the local
Chamber of Commerce.

visited exchange dinners Thursday
evening between Winchell House,
Martha Cook and Vickie Vaughan,
and Adams House and Stockwell.
This roving-reporter program,
rebroadcast in two 15-minute pro-
grams at 8 and 10 p.m. the same
evening, is produced by Shel Gates
of Chicago House with his own
equipment. Shel also conducts the
Voice of Chicago House station

bearing a name instead of call-
numbers.

PRESCOTT HOUSE, East Quad,
will publish the first issue of its
house paper tomorrow. The paper
does not have a name yet, but a
contest will be announced in the
paper for that purpose. The paper
will contain house news, athletic
results and minutes of council
meetings.
Talented members of Prescott
House provide entertainment
immediately after dinner in the
house lounge. Violinists, pianists
and other ,musicians offer mu-
sical programs during the relax-
ation period before the students
have to return to the old grind.

Betsy Barbour House knew that
Pat O'Connor was bright but they
were practically "floored" when
,he returned from Fortnight with
an award for highest scholastic
standing in last year's junior class.
Her four point average-she's
a pre-med student-which she
says was obtained by taking easy
courses, still makes them all give
deep curtseys when she enters a

THE SYSTEM, which has not,
been in force for the Freshman
and Sophomore Classes since 1944,
was returned to the College of
Engineering this summer by a vote
of the Faculty.
Originally proposed, planned,
and put into effect by the stud-
ents themselves in 1916, the
Honor System has had com-
plete faculty cooperation and
has been a success. It was dis-

LEAVE DETAILS

The most important feature of
the system is un-proctored exam-
inations. Responsibility for hon-
esty is entirely the student's, be-
cause professors distribute quizz-
es and examinations and leave the
room, returning only to collect the
completed examinations.
DISHONESTY under the Honor
System will be reported to the
Student Honor Committee.
An explanatory pamphlet
written by Bruce Lockwood,
President of the Engineering
Council, has been read to all
students of engineering so that
the system may go into full ef-
fect at once.
