A person who only identified himself as a Canadian patriot attached an American flag to the pole on top of the business school Feb. 7, 1957, The Gazette reported.

A deep-throated male voice told The Gazette by telephone that the stars and stripes had been placed there in protest over the fact no Canadian flag was flown regularly from any campus building.

"Only on special occasions does the university take the pains to fly a flag. On Homecoming weekend, graduation day and Founder's day the flag is up but otherwise the flag poles are bare," the man said.
