At the University of Oklahoma their is a group called LKOT (Loyal Knights of Old Trusty). Its a little secret Society which now one knows anything about. You know when they select a new member bc they shoot of a cannon, but no ever know who the memebers are until after they graduate college. Has anyone heard of this. I know my dad is one, but I and I ask him about it, and he won't say anything

In 1920 a secret organization was formed by a group of students in the engineering school. It was called the L.K.O.T. The Loyal Knights of Old Trusty. The purpose of L.K.O.T was to honor Saint Patrick, the patron saint of Ireland (and of engineers). A student in the School of Electrical Engineering, Ira B. Watkins,was the principal force and a founder of the organization.The L.K.O.T members wore black robes with a hood masking the face and white numerals on the robes for member identification. A civil war cannon was obtained and called Old Trusty. St. Partick's Day was the main occasion for firing the cannon although it was also fired during the night and at other times during the year. This was against the rules of the University and if the members were identified it meant expulsion from school. Therefore the names of the members were only made public after graduation.The cannon was kept hidden to keep the engineer's rivals, the School of Law, from stealing it.In later years, the L.K.O.T. was legalized by the University and is composed of honor students from the engineering school. Each year one student is chosen to be Saint Partick and a queen is elected.

Thanks for the info. My dad tells me all sorts of stories about their rivals of the Law School. He told me once on Saint Paties Day. Him and other people dipped mice in green paint and let them loose all over the Law Building.

May I ask what your Dad's Number is?

I am pretty familiar with some of people involved with the most recent green mice incident.

This isn't exactly accurate anymore. Each year, during Engineer's Week, which is late Feb. usually, election are held for Engineers' King and Queen. These two student's are escentually responsobile for Homecomming and attending all Engineers' Club events. As for the Saint Partick... that position, as well as St. Pat's Council has begun to fade out with the growth and gained indenpendice of the different technical socities.

We did NOT dip mice in green paint -- we sprayed them (carefully) with green easter egg dye. We didn't want to hurt them. And, for the record, I didn't join LKOT until AFTER that.
