"Fun? Well Rather" The Diary of Virginia Clay McClure - part of the Sesquicentennial Stories Series

October 13, 1910

Freshman girls all went to town after breakfast and got their caps.  They look too cunning for anything – you see red caps everywhere, and only a few minus the red button.  Freshman took the day, marched into chapel, had songs etc.  Robinson not present, Jackson very sore and “disrespectful” to Seniors.  Duncan, Senior yell leader, was kissed by some of the green Freshman, and his “Raw” for them might be taken in another way for “Ra”, but he did it all gracefully.  Freshman pined red and yellow on all the Profs. Their yell is, “We wear red caps we do, we wear red caps we do, They may look well, they may look like hell, But we wear red caps we do.” Oh you fresh Freshies!!
