"Oski's Head" and "Pyre and Fire"

Adventures and intrigue on the Cal campus in the late 50s and early 60s.

[Editor's Note: The following is an except from "A Golden State of Mind" or "The Sequel: Golden Daze" by Geoffrey P. Wong, Cal grad '62, who now practices law in Sacramento, CA.]

The ursine figure staggered out of the P U patio, past the babbling waterfall and stumbled onto the moonlit corner of Channing and College.

The creature was barely 5-foot-6 inches tall, his diminutive stature accented by the oversized, cartoon, paper mache head with large ears, double-eye holes and permanent smiling face which had been described as a "shit-eating" grin. His gold letterman's sweater, baggy blue pants, white gloves, and floppy tennis shoes were sopped with the sweet scent of beer doused on him by throngs of Cal fans celebrating the rousing football upset victory over Washington State College, "Wazoo."

At the post-Wazoo P U party, Oski had downed 12-brews by placing one end of a clear plastic tubing into a cup of beer, stretching the length of tubing through one of his eye holes, inserting the other end into his mouth, and ingesting the contents in one sustained burp. In a quasi-inebriated stupor, Oski had almost forgotten his vows of silence when voluptuous Muffy Peachwick had plopped into his lap to share a beer.

Drink, don't talk, Oski reminded himself. But man, that Gee Dee babe, Muffy, is one hot number! How I'd love to boink that Amazon in blissful silence!

Better move on, remembering he had promised to check out the goal posts the Dormies had torn down after the SC game. Oski usually traveled with two others who were more body guards than escorts; but they too had been caught up in the post-game hoopla and did not notice their charge leave.

In the street, Oski inhaled the cool evening air hoping, rocking side-to- side would steady himself. He had trained for moments like this, when hours of beer drinking clouded his memory and impaired his balance.

Not to worry. Dooch is only a block away, and I can stagger, if not crawl, down to the Dormies for at least three more beers.

Behind him, Oski heard the lyrics of Lloyd Price's "Stagger Lee," from a slow approaching vehicle. The Bear mascot was leaning against the street lamp, catching his breath, when a red station wagon emerged from the darkness, pulling alongside. Inside were six students dressed in red sweatshirts and white hats.

One of Wazoo's colors is red, Oski recalled, burping.

"Oski, how's tricks?" one occupant said from a rear side window.

Oski nodded, giving a thumbs up sign.

"How about a beer?" another said, extending a bottle.

What the hell? Another brew-ski's not gonna hurt, Oski thought, uncoiling his clear plastic tubing, noting the offering had an import label. Who can afford expensive foreign beer?

Suddenly, the occupants spilled onto the street corner, surrounding him. It was then that Oski first noticed the white lettering on the cardinal-colored sweatshirts:

"Leland Stanford Junior University."

STAN-FURD !

Oski dove between the legs of the one closest to College Avenue. If I can make enough noise, the Dormies will hear me, forgetting his vow of silence.

"Get him," the leader shouted, scrambling after the Bear mascot. Oski found himself buried under a swarm of grunting, grabbing, and swearing red.

The more he resisted, the more he felt like a deflating balloon. Breathing gave way to unconsciousness, as Oski gasped for air.

A bad nightmare, Oski thought, twisting against the grappling hands. What the hell do they want?

The answer came in the sickening rush of fresh night air engulfing him, allowing him to cough haltingly, as the mob retreated, piling into the station wagon, and zooming away, amid a chorus of hoots and laughter. Within seconds, the station wagon's tail lights disappeared, westbound on Channing Way.

Dazed, prone, Oski felt nauseous, naked, and violated.

No! No! he thought, pounding his fists on the street.

They've kidnaped my head!

The following week should have been filled with traditional, colorful activities leading up to the Cal-Stanford Big Game. Instead, it was now a moribund period of mourning. "Blue Monday," the Monday before Big Game where everyone on campus wore Cal blue and gold, and anyone caught dressed in Stan-furd red was publicly humiliated, was quietly observed. Students jammed Roderick Seakin's annual Big Game lecture where, dressed as Archimedes, the science professor magically turned, with an animated swirl of a swizzle-stick, the liquid of a beaker, from offending Stan-furd red to loyal Cal blue.

The campus community packed Dwinelle Plaza for Jacob Aural's SRO candlelight eulogy to legendary Cal Coach Andy Smith's "Wonder Teams" of the 1920's. Greek living groups went through the motions of Big Game house decorations in anti-Stanford themes, with prizes awarded at the Bon Bon Fire Rally at the Greek Theater, the night before Big Game.

Yet, a discernible pall of sadness engulfed the Berkeley campus on the news that Oski's head had been stolen. Without his "shit-eating" grin, the mascot would be absent from the football game. It was a disaster akin to Cal stealing the war bonnet of Prince Harry Hotfoot, Stanford's full-blood, Indian mascot.

It was distressing enough that Stan-furd held the Axe, symbol of previous year's Big Game winner. Now, the $tan-furd$ also had the head of Oski Bear, symbol of Cal's irreverent spirit.

Insult to Oski's decapitation was a photo in the San Francisco Sentinel showing Stanford's Rally Committee joyously holding the Axe, while Prince Harry Hotfoot brandished Oski's head like a prized scalp, above the banner:

"STANFORD INDIANS BEHEAD BEAR MASCOT"

In his column, Sam Paean posted an ominous three dot eye-tem:

". . . My almost alma-mater lost Blue & Gold face when marauding Indians scalped Oski's top. The Shadow Knows Oski's smiling face will be roasted in front of 10,000 Red & White clad Stan-froo students - 8 p.m. - at the Annual Bonfire Rally at bone-dry Lake Lagunitas . . ."

The Cal Alumni Association offered a $500 reward for the safe return of Oski's head to which a $tanford alum sniffed, "$500 or $5,000, both are meaningless to us." The usually pacifistic Daily Californian issued a call for " extraordinary measures" of "self-defense" against "barbaric hooligans."

* * * *

Two figures, dressed in black, faces hidden behind ski masks, emerged from the Jacaranda grove and dropped to their knees. The roar of unseen thousands could be heard over the tune "All Right Now," which Stanford's band played incessantly whether things were all right or not.

Daytime visitors were always at a loss for bearings, as all buildings of the Stanford campus share the same faux Spanish mission design, were uniformly pink, and crowned by adobe tile roofs; but the evening darkness had not hampered the pair from finding Lake Lagunitas.

Royal French yanked the sleeve of his left arm, glanced at the glowing numbers of his combat watch, and signaled to McCart, by flashing five fingers of his right twice: ten minutes before the start of "Operation Stinky Chief RF." RF stood for Rat Fuck, the irreverent phrase used to describe a prank or trick carried out in retaliation or revenge against a rank injustice.

The pair crawled on their stomachs to the rear of massive, wooden bleachers temporarily erected in a large circle below banks of battery- powered flood lights. The tinny plink-plink-plink of beer cans landing on the 50-foot mountain of lumber echoed to the reverberations of shouts and applause of thousands of Stan-furd students at Lake Lagunitas, once a respite for early California Native Americans.

For Royal French, this exercise in college skullduggery triggered deep- seated nightmares of life and death, of clandestine missions he had under- taken in obscure Indo-Chinese countries whose names had no meaning to the average American: Vietnam, Cambodia, Laos.

The bank of flood lights went dark, replaced by the flickering of 10,000 candles accompanied by the rhythmic beat of unseen tom-toms and the hissing of bead-filled rattles. A deafening roar enveloped a procession of red and white clad Stanford Rally Committee members carrying two trophies of immeasurable value: The Axe and a silver tray large enough to transport a whole roast pig. On the platter was the battered head of Oski Bear with his "shit-eating" grin.

Royal nodded to Mo, as a sustained chorus of war whoops greeted the thin, wiry form of Indian royalty, dressed in a full-length, feather war bonnet and tan buckskin pants, who pranced into Lake Lagunitas, accompanied by an army of grungy Stanford Band members. The Indian chief's upper torso and face were striped in red and white war paint. Around his neck, he wore a shell choker necklace and a beaded shirt bib.

Prince Harry Hotfoot stomped feverishly in front of the six-story tall pile of lumber, dancing and chanting lustily:

"HI-YUM, SOOK-UM, TILLY-KUM, MOKUM, HI-YUM, SOOK-UM HOY! HOY!

Keep it up Prince Harry Hotfoot, Royal thought. Only ten more minutes to pull off this RF.

* * * *

The conflagration roared 20 feet into the night sky, greeted by thousands of howling college boys packed into the Greek Theater. Empty booze bottles cascaded into the inferno, tailless meteorites launched by the pajama- clad, Beer-swigging, cigar-puffing mobs.

Cal's Greek Theater was an amphitheater sculptured into a hillside grove, a concrete semicircle facing an elevated three-sided stage of Classical design. Eleven vertical aisles divided the steep bowl into curved seating of 19 rows each. On the floor of the arena were ornately carved, stone high back chairs reserved for officers of the IFC, the Inter-Fraternity Council.

Patterned after the theater at Epidaurus, the Greek Theater was first used in 1903 for a commencement speech by President Teddy Roosevelt. Now, over a half century later, the Greek was reserved for large gatherings such as the Academic Senate, graduation exercises, and football rallies.

On the steep grassy slope above the Greek, a few hundred coeds huddled in the darkness, bound by a sense of curiosity and disgust at the unfolding, primitive male behavior, unaware of the irony that a woman, the architect of Hearst Castle, supervised the construction of this bastion of male bonding.

"The Pajama-rino Bonfire Rally is the biggest tradition of the Fall season," Casey Lee explained. "When the fire burns low, there will be a call for more wood, and all freshmen must step forward and feed the blaze."

The Dormies, one hundred strong, had marched up Bancroft Way with candles, dressed in a variety of sleeping attire: pajamas and bathrobes. Ollie Punch wore only a jock strap, an athletic supporter, for modesty.

"Hey, I snooze in the buff! Want me to embarrass you straight-arrow types by being busted for indecent exposure?" he had barked.

The Dormie procession slowed near the juncture of Piedmont Avenue and Gayley Road, joining hundreds pouring out of houses along Fraternity Row. As they neared the Greek, the chanting of "BEAT STAN-FURD" filled the night air, growing to an earsplitting roar.

In the Greek, the Dormies took the remaining seats high up on the upper rim of the concrete pavilion, sharing the body heat of the unseen audience.

A blinding flash! An incendiary bomb exploded in the middle of a stack of wood piled 10 feet high on the floor of the Greek, the soaring orange flames illuminating the all-male Cal marching band leading the football team, coaches, cheerleaders, pom-pom girls, and Oski, the Cal mascot

As the flames subsided, the chant they had been expecting erupted,

"FRESHMEN, MORE WOOD! FRESHMEN, MORE WOOD!"

"Ok, Dormie Frosh, show ‘em how to stoke a fire!" Royal French shouted.

"Junior, let's go," Butch said, pulling Jonathan into the horde streaming down the aisles toward railroad ties stacked neatly near the bonfire.

As each wooden offering was heaved into the blazing pyre, the chant rose:

"FRESHMEN, MORE WOOD! FRESHMEN, MORE WOOD!"

Each new step of the surging line brought more heat, more light. Perspiring profusely, Jonathan felt tightness in his throat, remembering that fateful night.

Flames! Smoke! Death! All came flooding back.

February 3, 1959, the day Jonathan Aldon witnessed the music and his hero, Buddy Holly, die in that flaming plane crash.
