Excerpt from Brown Alumni Monthly, Vol. 54: February, 1954

When I was a Freshman here in the dark ages - ~the year 1920, to be exact - there was practically Open rushing, a kind of catch-as-catch-can arrangement. For years, the Freshman would be met at the train - or in those days per haps at the dock of the old Colonial Line on South Water St. If the fraternity liked his looks, he would be voted in that night and soon became a Greek scholar.

The vice-president of the University was talking on the larger theme of Perspective when he addressed the Freshman Class during a January Chapel. But, with his permission, we are reprinting those portions which related to the imminent possibility of joining a fraternity at Brown. Dr. Bigelow has been too long absent from these pages, and we are delighted to have these words, which anyone who has been a Freshman will appreciate.
