Cornell History: Sneaking home
June 01, 1955
Students create traffic jams on Triphammer Bridge by strategically parking a few cars to keep co-eds from returning to their dorms by curfew. “The culprits add to the confusion and fun by proceeding to wash down the cars and sweep the bridge. Before long, the swelling crowd of onlookers are cheering the participants and hooting the efforts of the campus police to unsnarl the traffic. The purpose is usually accomplished before order is restored,” the Cornell Alumni News reported.
