ARCHIVES MONTH: ON THIS DATE IN RC HISTORY--OCTOBER 31, _____ (MOST ANY YEAR IN THE LATE 19TH AND EARLY 20TH CENTURIES)

OCTOBER 31, ____ : The students plotted; the President and faculty remained on high alert. It was October 31st, . . . "All Hallows Eve," . . . Hallowe'en night. SOMETHING was going to happen. . . . Most common was the annual "gathering of loose lumber" from nearby properties. The first trick was to sneak off campus without getting caught. Then the boys scurried around the neighborhood "borrowing" anything that was not attached, and occasionally some things that WERE. Barrels, porch chairs, boxes, small wagons, even fence slats were fair game. Next, the students had to sneak back onto campus with their treasures and, again, not get caught. Students would then pile the items high in front of the doors (front and back) of the Administration Building where many classes were held. The hoped-for outcome would be the cancelling of classes. Of course, that never happened as the janitors (all two of them) would invariably get there early in the morning and clear the offending items from the doors so the school day could begin on time. The boys' hopes were dashed, but . . . there was always another time, another prank to plan.
