A freshman and a sophomore do battle during Cane Spree, a Princeton tradition dating to the 1860s, in this undated photo. What began as an attempt by upperclassmen to prevent frosh from carrying then-fashionable canes while strolling on Nassau Street has evolved into a multisport competition after the second week of classes in the fall. According to the Daily Princetonian, rules created after a student was injured in 2001 have made Cane Spree less of “a brutal brawl.” Can any readers identify these students?
