This contest is usually held in colleges between the rival freshman

and sophomore classes. A cane is held by some non-contestant and the

two classes endeavour by pulling and pushing and hauling to reach the

cane and to hold their hands on it. At the end of a stated time, the

class or side having the most hands on the cane is declared the

winner. It is a very rough and sometimes dangerous game and in many

colleges has been abolished on account of serious injuries resulting

to some of the contestants.
