N.Y.U. Freshman Ducking

FLASH- THE QUEENS COLLEGE LENS photographers secure exclusive and hitherto unpublished scoop of the traditional N.Y.U. frosh ducking; amid splashing and the resounding whacks of the paddle boards (our photog) succesfully acquired the above shots.

On Oct. 7, two hundred N.Y.U. freshman scantily clothed in pajamas, marched along the N.Y.U. campus surrounded by their older classmates who now and then encouraged them along the way with a filial caress on their gluteal-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 freshman. To top this gleeful evening the wet frosh were forced to run a gauntlet of about twenty upper-classmen, 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.
