UUIIIUy Bdll I Nemed at Coed Hop Tomorrow Eve [Newspaper Article] — Occidental — 13 March 1953
UUIIIUy Bdll I Nemed at Coed Hop Tomorrow Eve By BEV SCROGGS Last call for the Blarney Ball! That’s right. The time is nearly here. In fact, unless all you charming colleens have your he-man cornered, you are almost too late. But as the old saying goes, “better late than never.” What’s more, I’m sure the Oxy boys will agree. So there will be no excuses for not getting some kind of a date by tomorrow night. And don’t forget to make your corsage. Remember, with a theme like St. Patrick’s Day, anything from snakes to shamrocks can be used, depending upon how enthusiastic you are about your date. Be sure to keep in mind those prizes wait- ing for the most original and authentic corsages. Something else guaranteeing a great time at the Co-Ed Hop is the fact that music is being provided by Keith Williams. The decorations are in the very able hands of Joanne Bennett and Marilyn Fair. Janet Shively is in charge of ticket sales; Carol Reddy, refreshments; and Dottie Reitzel, publicity. Now h...

Orr Celebrates Annual Buddy Week [Newspaper Article] — Occidental — 13 March 1953
Orr Celebrates Annual Buddy Week All kinds of strange little things have been happening this past week in Orr Hall as the Orchids have been having their traditional Buddy Week. Each girl drew a name at the beginning of the week to be her buddy. Then, without letting her buddy find out who she is, she does all sorts of little things for her, such as making her bed, leaving candy or gum, devising treasure hunts or writing poems. Climaxing the week, a party was held last night at 10 p.m. in the living room. At this time the secret buddies were revealed. Refreshments were also served. Jan Chambers, vicepresident of the dorm, was in charge of the affair.

‘Pflo4&ectCHA [Newspaper Article] — Occidental — 13 March 1953
‘P f lo4&amp;ectCHA By Joan Davis Peeking around the corner into the Dean of Faculty's office this week it was interesting to look at a letter of application. Many of the letters are from the coooolllld states of Minnesota and Wisconsin, but one particular letter this week came from a little town in Illinois, I believe, named PECULIAR. That reminds me of the stories about people with funny names—for instance the latest one I heard was 'Holly Bush/ That's almost as good as Tma Hogg.' And it's true! My little item about Co-Ed Hop last week seemed to be 'way off the track. It seems that instead of shying away from these horrid specimens of humanity that have been called Oxy girls in a derogatory voice for nigh on to two yeafs, the Oxy men have waked up to the fact that there are some pretty nice girls right around here. It must have hit them like a ton of bricks, for nothing else that I can think of would prompt a group of fellows to congregate in Orr Gardens, chanting "It’s no...
TiJiU [Newspaper Article] — Occidental — 13 March 1953
TiJiU Living in close proximity with an AWS President has its advantages, admittedly. However, this past week living with her has become a bit of a strain, the advantages rubbing extremely thin as Coed Hop draws fiendishly close. (Gad. it's tomorrow.! Since our attitude towards this revered function has not exactly been one of humble respect, we have been subjected to living in a state of armed siege, so to speak. A war of nerves goes on constantly; over the dinner table this war Is waged—sides are divied up—the problem of “to go or not to go” is bandied about, weighed, evaluated, discarded as the case may be. The bridge table carries on the campaign as aces are trumped and the whole problem is aired once again from all angles. We took our stand, and we are happy; however, we now find that we are forced by social pressure, to abandon both eating and card ploying as Saturday draws closer and closer. Now on the eve of the Coed Hop the struggle is almost over. We're not going to tell y...

Tigers in L B Relays Harbor Town Entertains Southland's Top Spikemen By BERT WOODRUFF Fresh from lop-sided victories over Caltech and Redlands, the Oxy varsity thinclads will have no chance to rest on their laurels as they face what shapes up to be the first stiff test of their ability. Tomorrow at 1 p.m. we will see the Tigers journey to the land of ocean spray as they participate in the 1953 Long Beach Relays. With their outstanding field performers plus some fine runners, the Trojans from Southern California figure to take the team title. However, the real interest will center on individual performances, which will give a clue as to just how Oxy will rate the rest of the 1953 track season. Coach Payton Jordan is giving many Tigers a chance to make a good showing, with only a few men appearing in more than one event. Best in West The 440 yard relay will see some of the finest teams in the West competing. Tigers Jon Speer. Chuck Gerry, Dick Clark, and Brayton Norton will be running...
Relays Lift Curtain for Swim Season Kroesche and Hormel Shine in LACC Setback [Newspaper Article] — Occidental — 13 March 1953
Relays Lift Curtain for Swim Season Kroesche and Hormel Shine in LACC Setback By HANK DICKSON Sparkling displays of speed and stamina by Tom Hormel and Fred Kroesche kept the Tiger cause afloat last Friday in Taylor Pool, even though the mermen were dunked by a potent LACC squad, 37-47. Hormel took both sprints while Kroesche dominated the distance events, each accounting for 10 points. They teamed up later to lead the 4-man relay team to an impressive victory. Both will be counted on heavily in the second annual AllConference Relays slated for tomorrow, at 10 a.m., in the Redlands aqua emporium. Relays Strong ~ “We should be strongest in the free style relays,” according to Neal Palmer, swim mentor. “If we can make creditable showings in the other relays and the individual medley, we have a good chance of ending right up there near the top.” New additions to the team this week include free stylers Dan Mackenzie, John Sonnichson and Don McCoy; back strokes Jim Ensign; diver Jim Dela...

Frosh Spikesters Face UCLA, USC In Relays; Defeat CT, Redlands By JIM TERRILL After easily subduing Caltech and Redlands last week the freshman spikers take up the baton once again to do battle in the Long Beach Relays. Entered in the Junior College division, the Tigers meet stiff competition from the USC and UCLA frosh and JC teams from Santa Ana and San Bernardino. But Oxy has entered capable teams that will give good accounting of themselves. Potent quarter and half mile sprint teams composed of A 1 Kiser, Bill Carling, Larry Foster and Larry Newquist should have no trouble in holding their own. The boys worked with the varsity teams this week and looked in fine fettle. Oxy’s fine array of middledistance men in the two-mile relay and, although not too much is known of the competition, should do well. Milers A 1 Haimson George Hojland hook up with Eddie Shinn and Vince Gilliland to produce one of the finest freshmen teams around. Hurley Goes Individually, “Hercules” Hal Hurley goe...

Citrus Jinx? Tigers Defend Win Record at Redlands [Newspaper Article] — Occidental — 13 March 1953
Citrus Jinx? Tigers Defend Win Record at Redlands It was just two years ago that Occidental’s horsehiders were defeated for the last time in SCIC competition. And on that bright sunny day in March of 1951, the Redlands Bulldogs set down the Tigers 2-1 on the Bulldog field. Since that “gloomy” afternoon the Bengals have gone on to win 15 consecutive conference tilts and two league championships. But tomorrow afternoon, at Bulldogville in the Citrus City, Ihese same Bulldogs and the Tigers who clashed two years ago will open the 1953 SCIC baseball race. And the big question will be if the Tigers can knock off the Bulldogs on their home cjjamond, continuing their win streak, or will they surrender to the Citrus Belt jinx. Last year the Bengals, behind the stellar pitching of Bob Ashford, who has graduated, defeated the Bulldogs on their home grounds for the first time in three years. So the question is can they do it again? We think they can. It should be a nifty ball game for all thos...
Three 'GY On All-Conf [Newspaper Article] — Occidental — 13 March 1953
Three 'GY On All-Conf One outstanding senior and two outstanding juniors, Baxter Golden, Bruce Gilliland and Bob Gore respectively, were chosen to the annual mythical SCIC All-Conference Basketball Team for 1952-53 at a coaches meeting last Friday at Whittier. Gilliland and Golden were selected to the first team, while Gore was nominated to the second squad. Golden will be sorely missed by the Bengals next season. However, both Gilliland and Gore will be back to annoy their opponents. Gilliland is one of the best centers to play at Occidental in a number of years. Bruce is an outstanding shot from any place on the floor. During the past season Gilliland placed fifth in the conference scoring with 112 points in 7 games for a 16.0 average. And add his floor game and his aggressive recovering of rebounds and you can easily, see why he was picked to this year’s All-SCIC team. Golden, a little monster on the floor, competed in all eight of Oxy's league tilts this season. He was one of th...
Web-Wielders Lose League Opener To Powerful Bulldog Outfit, 9-0 [Newspaper Article] — Occidental — 13 March 1953
Web-Wielders Lose League Opener To Powerful Bulldog Outfit, 9-0 By Chuck Hammond In their first league match the Oxy Tennis team lost to a strong Redlands outfit last Saturday 9-0. Last year’s league champs look like repeaters off their decisive victory on the Bengals home hardcourts. With strength, depth, and overall talent, the Bulldogs outmanned and outgunned, but never outfought a determined Tiger team. Outstanding in defeat was the showing of Dick Holmes in singles and the “Marshall Maulers,” Martin and Pettit in doubles. The web-wielders’next match is Thursday, a return match with Glendale College on the opponents' court. This is another tune-up for the coming Pomona match on Saturday, March 14, at Pomona. The Sagehen smackers look like the toughest competition for the top spot with Redlands. With lots of returning lettermen from last year’s number two team in the league, it should be another tough outing for the Bengal blasters. The feline frosh also opened their season last ...
Bengal Golfers Defeat Bruins In Repeat Match [Newspaper Article] — Occidental — 13 March 1953
Bengal Golfers Defeat Bruins In Repeat Match By JOHN GAINES The Bengal golfers did it again last week. They edged a faltering UCLA Bruin team by the narrow margin of 20-16. This victory was won over the losers’ course, Brentwood Country Club. The scores were pretty good considering the stiff gale that was lashing the fairways. John Argue shot a steady 77, garnering four points at the number one position. Jim Kovacs and Don Fulton, playing fifth and sixth, won six points apiece. Roger Harway broke even to win three points, and John Gaines eked out one, with Lee Dudley being blanked. Upset of Upsets This was in the way an upset among upsets, and if comparative scores meant anything we might consider that UCLA murdered Pomona, defending SCIC champions, last week at Red Hill, Pomona’s home course. This sounds good to the Oxy golfers who are seeking to avenge their last year’s defeats at the hands of the Sagehens. Caltech Nipped Oxy’s golfers opened up their league season last Friday aga...
How to Get Thar [Newspaper Article] — Occidental — 13 March 1953
How to Get Thar You don’t need a compass to get to the Long Beach Relays. Merely follow Rosemead Blvd. (Same as Lakewood) south until you come to Carson and Lakewood (the Douglas Aircraft plant is on the corner). Cop a left and the Veterans’ Memorial Stadium will be directly before an alert driver’s eyes. General admission tickets at $1 and reserved seats at $1.50 are going fast, but may still be had in the office of Graduate Manager Lodi Galassi.
