Harvard Men Invade Radcliffe Dorm
Finland Student Chorus
To Sing at Hill Tuesday
By DAVIS CRIPPEN
World shaking issues lacking in
the news of college campuses last
week, it was again up to the "staid"
Ivy League schools to spice af-
fairs with some of their shennani-
At Harvard, students rioted dur-
ing an hour long power stoppage,
while at Yale a new organization
in support of snobbish living made
its first patrician appearance.

The Harvard donnybrook was
the more serious. A fireman was
reported to be in danger of losing
an eye after it was cut by glass
thrown at the truck on which he
was riding. The firemen were
speeding on their way to answer
one of the many false alarms
turned in during the riot.
It all started last Sunday
evening at about 6:30 when an
overloaded generation plant gave
up the battle and conked out.
This resulted, so the Harvard
Crimson put it, in "the greatest
electric stoppage in U.S. history"
as it blacked out all of the
greater Boston area.
Besides making history of one
kind or another, the darkness also
gave many Harvard men a chance
to get rid of their usual Sunday

A THOUSAND of them converg-
ed on the dorm quadrange at near-
by Radcliffe and started milling
around in it, much to the pleasure
of the female inmates of the quad.
Eventually a few of the more
daring Harvard men went into
one of the dorms. One of them
hit on the bright idea of ringing

a fire alarm. Well trained, as the
girls evidently were, it was no
time at all until they had fol-
lowed out the fire regulations
and evacuated the building.
Meanwhile, to shouts of "Slip
it to 'em, Harvard," the men had
moved on.:After yelling, "We want
in," in front ofdanotherdorm for
awhile, the doors were finally
opened and about 50 men invaded

THE INVADERS scattered all
over the house. Several appeared
in windows on the upper floor, and
bowed low to the applause of those
still outside. A red street lantern
appeared in a second floor win-
Inside one man was seen
zooming exultantly down the
stairs waving a pair of lace pan-
ties which he had acquired. One
girl later claimed she had lost
the bottom of her pajamas.
University officials and campus
police were making valiant but
vain efforts when at 7:20 the lights
came on again, and the men de-
cided it was the better part of va-
lor for them to go back to the

THE YALE group is called the
"Celestial Order of the White Shoe
and Blue." It is designed, so its
founders announced in a state-
ment of policy, "to resist the en-
croachments of the bourgeoise and

dicated sadly, have taken to pro-

spelled, whereas, they declared lof-

As their first official act, the
Order presented a white shoe on
a red pillow to the master of her-
keley. In a presentation speech,,
the head of the order trumpeted,
"The Philistines be damned, aris-
tocracy and flamboyancy have
come home to Berkeley." Though,
of course, he pronounced it Bark-
ley when he said it.

Flavoring the Thanksgiving tur-
key with a dash of cooperative spi-
rit made it taste better than ever,
according to residents of the six
co-op houses on campuses.
Each of the men's houses sent
out an invitation to one of the
women's residences, inviting them
to come and share a Thanksgiving
dinner-cooking as well as eating.
