    Freshman Beanies

    First reference to freshmen wearing beanies; faculty concerned about hazing Wearing beanies “contributes to this spirit of tradition…the attitude of lower classmen towards upperclassmen…Herein lies the purpose of the beanies, to point out a certain group as being Freshmen and to humble them in an insignificant way in the eyes of others….The Freshmen should view wearing these beanies as part of their duty and responsibility to their school, rather than a deliberate attempt on the part of the National Honor Society to make them look ridiculous. ” - editorial from The Roundup 11/54
