I always wondered what happened to the Cottey College Jean Jackets?
February: 75% of the senior class votes to "retire the duck and the duck jacket as symbols of senior superiority," although this number does not seem to reflect the general opinion of seniors on traditions and the duck. Most duck jackets are confiscated and shipped to the Appalachian mountains, although a few are saved by alumnae. Hermann the Duck, the class mascot, is banned from campus until 1971.
