Junior female students dressed in white and yellow dresses wind the may pole during a competitive event part of the May Day festivities on the Oregon Normal School campus. Spectators watch from the sidelines holding umbrellas.
The Monmouth Herald noted "The May Pole winding was done under the most adverse circumstances since the rain was falling and the ground slippery but the results were very credible" (May 12, 1916).
