Freshmen Cheat in Flag Scrap

Wed., Nov. 20, 1940

A few hours prior to the flag scrap on Wednesday, November 20, 1940, two freshmen sawed the flag pole nearly in half to make it easier to pull over.  Shortly after the scrap started, the pole began to crack, and the contest was called off in order to save the pole.  The Tribunal retaliated by declaring that freshman rules would remain in effect for the entirety of the academic year.
