Hazing paddle!

Got a call from an alum of 1968, wanting to know if I wanted a hazing paddle that was part of Homecoming Parade one year! I said of course, what a great display item and comment provoking artifact of our history, and he generously offered to ship it to me. It always catches the attention of students, and many staff too, when I mention the fact that hazing of freshman by sophmores was a fact of life here for many years c1945-1970.
