Gloom, despair and agony on yor They say the best things in life are worth working for. In many instances this is true. But probably a lot of people on campus would disagree with that. If it were a certain Saturday morning early in the semester, many weary social club pledges might be saying, "No way, club could never be worth what I just went through last night." And of course they're referring to the in- famous Bid Night. just the thought of that night of horrors is enough to send chills down any knowledgeable sophomore's spine. What goes on between club members and unsuspecting pledges during that night is one of the best kept secrets on campus. But rumors on this subject are prevalent, and every sophomore has his own idea of what to expect when he pledges a social club. "I was really scared about Bid Night because everyone talked about how bad it was," said Phyllis Baker, sophomore from Nashville, Tenn. "I was prepared for the worst." Melody Townsel, sophomore from De Soto, who pledged Kojies during the spring semester, shared Phyllis' fears. "You hear so many terrible things, and you just never know whether or not to believe them." Robert Pitman, sophomore from Worth, said that before Bid Night he was "real- ly intimidated because of how the old members built it up. There was such a mystique about it." Sophomore Allen Walker said he felt 132 1 Y'all "a lot of apprehension" before that night. "I guess the unknown frightens everyone." But when the evening got underway, at- titudes changed. Some started to enjoy themselves, while others began to wonder what on earth they were doing in such a predicament. "You went through a lot, and it was pretty embarrassing," said Phyllis. "But it was fun because everyone else was going through the same silly things you were. And you just have to laugh because theres no other time in your life that you can look the way you did and a as stupid as you did and get away with it." What about the next morning? After all thi were these weary pledges willing to contini their torture for the rest of the pledge period? "The next eight weeks looked awfully lor when I came in that morning," said Melody. Still others didnt even think about the cot ing struggles. "My only wish the mornir after," said Allen, "was just to crash for the ne eight weeks." - Elise Smith 08 x.r-me .A
