NYU Freshman Ducking

FLASH-THE QUEENS COLLEGE LENS photographers secure exclusive hitherto unpublished scoop of the traditional N.Y.U. frosh ducking; amidst splashing and the resounding whacks of the paddle boards (our photog) successfully acquired the above shots.

On Oct. 7, two hundred N.Y.U. freshmen scantily clothed in pajamas, marched along the N.Y.U. campus surrounded by their older classmates who now and then encouraged maxima; their cries being drowned out by the collegiate refrains blaring forth from a colorful procession of a twenty-five piece brass band.

The procession terminated at the ducking fountain, where a group of husky seniors ducked each of the two hundred trembling freshmen. To top this gleeful evening, the wet frosh were forced to run a gauntlet of about twenty upperclassmen, and then to receive the recognition of "being all wet".

By way of showing their appreciation N.Y.U. upper classmen paddled and attempted to duck our photog, who throughout the entire evening was constantly mistaken for an absent freshman.
