The Oak Beams of New College, Oxford  by Gregory Bateson
 
    I owe this story to a man who was I think a New College student and was  
head of the department of Medicine at the University of Hawaii, where he  
told it to me.
    New College, Oxford, is of rather late foundation, hence the name.  It  
was probably founded around the late 16th century.  It has, like other  
colleges, a great dining hall with big oak beams across the top, yet?  
These might be eighteen inches square, twenty feet long.
    Some five or ten years ago, so I am told, some busy entomologist went  
up into the roof of the dining hall with a penknife and poked at the beams  
and found that they were full of beetles.  This was reported to the College  
Council, who met in some dismay, because where would they get beams of that  
caliber nowadays?
    One of the Junior Fellows stuck his neck out and suggested that there  
might be on College lands an oak.  These colleges are endowed with pieces  
of land scattered across the country.  So they called in the College  
Forrester, who of course had not been near the college itself for some  
years, and asked him about oaks.
    And he pulled his forelock and said, "Well sirs, we was wonderin' when  
you'd be askin'."
    Upon further inquiry it was discovered that when the College was  
founded, a grove of oaks had been planted to replace the beams in the  
dining hall when they became beetly, because oak beams always become beetly  
in the end.  This plan had been passed down from one Forrester to the next  
for four hundred years.  "You don't cut them oaks.  Them's for the College  
Hall."
