Tug Rivals To Vie for 'Long End'
By KATHERINE ZEISLER
With mounting interest sopho-
mores and freshmen view the ap-
proach of Tug Week, to be held
October 19 and 20.
This year's festivities will in-
dlude two pep rallies and a dance
at the Union Friday night, the tug
Saturday afternoon and Soph Sa-
tire that night.

THE 1949 Tug Week was a re-
vival of an old pre-war tradition.
In the spring a campus-wide refer-
endum was approved and the
week's activities put under spon-
sorship of the Student Legislature,
Foot Bowl Set
F ' '' ' Q
The kickoff for "Kickoff" will
take place at noon today on the
diag in front of the library with
an unusual kind of football game.
Nicknamed the Foot Bowl Game,
the exhibition will be used to pub-
licize Assembly's and AIM's an-
nual A-Hop dance to be held from
9 p.m. to T a.m. Saturday.
Two unique teams will clash in
a game complete with line mark-
ers, goal posts, band, and cheer-
leaders. Bob Leopold,vice presi-
dent of AIM, will referee the
Uniforms of the players will car-
ry the emblem of the first tradi-
tional Foot Bowl game--a large
foot in a bowl.
The entire footbowl game stunt
was planned by Anita Hoert and
Alberta Cohrt, who are co-chair-
men of the publicity for the an-
Those activities included a.
freshman rally Monday, sopho-
more rally Tuesday, the tug-o-
war Thursday with free ice
cream for the winners and hot
coffee for the "swimmers."
Soph Satire was presented Fri-
day night and a hard-times dance

dated dress, droopy duds and hag-

THAT YEAR the freshmen came
away with the victory. There was
some mix-up, however, when the
first pull was discounted. The
judges objected to the sophomore
practice of bracing themselves on
a convenient stump.
The sophomores, unaware of
the judges' decision, won the
-econd pull, and the freshmen
the third. Thinking they had
won two out of three pulls the
sophomores strolled home to
After disqualifying the first pull,
the judges called for another, but
found sophomore ranks sadly de-
pleted. The freshmen had an easy
time in the final pull, and due to
the mix-up, won the 1949 tug.

AT A MEETING of the Student
Legislature in December, 1949, a
proposal was passed revising the
Tug Week program. It was short-
ened to a week-end instead of an
A motion to elhninate the tug-
s-war from the program was
overwhelmingly defeated 23-9 in
a roll-call vote.
Last year's win is attributed to
the sophomores, although both
teams received a dunking. The first
pull was won by the freshmen but
the judge ruled them offside when
they began pulling ahead of the
starting signal. The result made
the class of '53 victors for two
years in a row.
THE MOST uncomfortable po-
sition was that of the judge who
viewed the contest from his place
of honor in the middle of the river.
Tug Week of the last few
years has been mild compared
to what it was in the old days.
Back in 1925 this warning was
issued in The Daily: "kicking,
biting and slugging are barred."
An account contends that one of
the teams hitched the rope to a
team of horses which were held in
readiness just over the hill out of
sight. The other team, unaware
though equally prepared, hitched
their end to a tractor. The contest
ended in a draw when the rope
AN OLD-TIMER who swears
there was more spirit in the old
days tells about the 1929 battle.
The custom then was for the team
which carries the rope to the site
to get the dry end after dragging
it across the river to their oppon-
The sophomores got the rope,
but were thwarted when the
freshmen showed up with a dary
rope of their own. To allay a
full-fledged fight the two ropes
we espliced in the middle.
That year there was no limit to
the number of men on a team. So,
seeing they were out-numbered
four to one, the sophomores re-
cruited men from the ranks of by-
As a final safeguard they tied
their end of the rope around a
tree. When the splice gave out the
judges decision went to the fresh-
