"A group of students at Princeton University would like to eliminate the right of freshmen to walk on campus sidewalks. Stating that they would like to 'preserve traditional sidewalk values' that define a sidewalk as a 'pathway for sophomores, juniors, seniors, graduate students, faculty, staff, and other members of the university community,' the group, which is acting in support of a measure termed 'Princeton Proposition 8,' is now entering its second successful week of demonstration.

"The students emphasize that they are not 'froshophobic' and that some of their best friends are freshmen, but they maintain that freshmen on the sidewalk degrade the sacred institution of sidewalks, and jeopardize the validity of upperclassmen's own perambulation. It also makes some of them uncomfortable. They are very excited that California's Proposition 8 has set a clear precedent for a majority to eliminate a minority group's civil rights, and they see it as a perfect opportunity to utilize this development for their own gain."
