Campus quarrels Controversy engulfs UM by Rob Robertson Ole Miss ' original peculiar institution, the waving of rebel flags at football games, may have unceremoniously been nudged into school sports history in 1997. Officially citing safety concerns, school officials banned sticks from Vaught-Hemingway Stadium on November 1, days before a nationally-televised football game against Arkansas. In a one-paragraph statement released October 22, the university made its position clear: Consistent with the ban on umbrellas for safe- ty reasons, effective November 1, 1997, spectators will not be permitted to bring sticks or other pointed objects to University of Mississippi athletic events. The ban came a day after the Associated Student Body passed a historic resolution dis- couraging students from waving flags at foot- ball games and just over a month after head football coach Tommy Tuberville made a public plea on the front page of the Daily Mississippian for Rebel fans to " use good judgement " and leave the flags at home. " It ' s time to support our teams physical- ly, mentally, and morally with enthusiasm and not symbols, " he wrote. Fans were provided with free pom-poms instead, which were left on seats in the student section and passed out to alumni as they entered the game. Anna Smith •One Ole Miss fan painted his chest with the image under controversy. He received much attention from the media during the football game. Jason Baki •Colonel Reb saw some changes in 1997.

student life Doing the Grove thing Campus park transformed on home game days Tens of thousands of students, faculty, alumni and friends gather in the Grove on Saturdays of home football games to talk, reminisce and have a good time. Tailgaters bring every- thing from chicken tenders to crystal candelabas. Otherwise, the Grove is a tranquil oasis for students to study, walk, jog, eat and lounge. The Grove, once called " The Glade, " is what many Ole Miss alum- ni remember most when they reminisce about their days at the University. The May Sesquicen- tennial graduation ceremo- ny was also held in the Grove, as well as other Sesquicentennial activities. Members of groups attending conferences at the Yerby Conference Center are often greeted with meals and refreshments in The Grove. The Grove is an important part in many people ' s lives. •Jack Ford of NBC News gathers in The Grove during the Arkansas game. Ford traveled with his son to Ole Miss. 56 student life Courtesy photo
