Meredith Retains Many Old Traditions l>id you know we always had “cake-«'alk"—or rather, t he negro waiters did—^.just before the Christmas holidays ^ Fresh men, do you know aiiout the crook ' Sophs and Seniors, have you forgotten that “'J'bese Jiones” were always sung at Stunt Night by the ‘‘odd classes " W'a have been asking tliese |uestions quite a lot re- itently, aiul the answer to the first anl third is usually “yes,” and the answer to the second is “no." Accordingly we have been at work c(dlecting all col lege traditions for the benefit of every oiu‘, from faculty to fresh men. The ghost who was written up last w(K*k heads our list. The most anticipated tradition we have is “Alice in W’onderland.” In the spring of 15)32 our digni fied faculty will take olt (heir masks and be human long enough to present a dramatiza tion of Lewis Carrol’s famous story. lOvery college generation the students form the audience, and the faculty lake the stage and the limelight.
