Pinnacles Holds Traditional Tapping

Pinnacles, little-known but vast-<
ly influential campus honorary,
has struck in the dead of night.
A swarm of hooded and blind-
folded members of the society last
night carried off a large contin-
gent of worthy student nonentities
to the court of the Mighty Peak-
Headed One in their traditional
tapping ceremonies.

GASPS OF astonishment were
the order of the day at fraternity
and independent breakfast tables
as the empty chairs were totaled.
It is believed that this year's
quota was the largest number of
men ever tapped by the highly-
secret Pinnacles honorary.
The criteria which the honorary
uses in selecting its members have
long been a tightly-kept secret.
But it has recently been learned
from a well-informed but uniden-
tifiable source that membership
requirements consist- of:
1. Absolutely no participation
in extra-curricular activities.
2. A general lack of any sort
of distinction whatsoever.
Not much else is known of Pin-
nacles except that the organiza-
tion levies a heavy initiation fee
which is applied toward "The Pro-

TAPPING TIME-This exclusive Daily photograph catches two members of Pinnacles, obscure,
campus honorary, tapping a new member. The pretesting neophyte was bundled off to the court of
the Mighty Peak-Headed One shortly after this picture was taken. Hooded and blindfolded, the two
Pinnacle members are employing the society's traditional "hit-or-miss" tapping technique.

s a cryptic poem which has ap-
eared annually in The Daily at
apping time:
"Plopped down plunk with
gurgling grunts,

Chamois our sham; make no
Sharpness counts when heads
