TRACKMEN OVERWHELM OPPONENTS IN TRI-MEET Distance Sweeps Lead in Tiger Domination at CT [Newspaper Article] — Occidental — 13 March 1953
TRACKMEN OVERWHELM OPPONENTS IN TRI-MEET Distance Sweeps Lead in Tiger Domination at CT Great improvement was seen in Occidental’s up-and-coming track and field squad of 1953 as they overwhelmed the spike teams of Caltech and Redlands last Saturday afternoon in a triangular meet held at Tournament Park in Pasadena. In their victory the Bengals captured all but two events. Competitivety, in ?rest was centered on the SCIC battle between Caltech and Redlands, won in a late rush by Caltech, 73-58. Tomorrow afternoon the Oxy thinclads journey down to Long Beach to compete in the Long Beach Relays. The Relays will serve as the first real test for the tracksters from Eagle Rock. And how the Jordanmen fare at the seashore could pretty well sum up whether Oxy will be ready for the titanic Whittier meet on March 21 at Occidental's Patterson Field. Eyes on Tigers Individually, however, most eyes last week were focused on Jordan's Tiger performers. Pole vaulter Jim Regan, after failing to clear...
★ As We See It [Newspaper Article] — Occidental — 13 March 1953
★ As We See It On another page of this paper is printed a letter of criticism to The Occidental for vising its columns to promote the Red Cross blood drive. We are sorry to see the injustice this letter does to (1) a humanitarian cause and (2) Christianity in general. The basic thesis seems to be that Christianity and pacifism are equated, and to document this falacy quotations are drawn out of context from the Bible. This thought, although firm in the writer’s mind, casts an unfair light on those people on this campus who sincerely believe Christianity is the best philosophy of life available today. It is obvious that the writer’s outlook is painfully unrealistic. In the first place, the donation of blood is not compulsory. In the second, a large share of the blood stays right in our city for ever-growing civilian surgical and defense emergencies. In the third place, the writer does not seem to realize that we live in a world of mixe'd idealogies. Unfortunately, pacifism is not a C...
BOX ONE [Newspaper Article] — Occidental — 13 March 1953
BOX ONE By Red Grafham Monday will see the beginning of our annual WSSF drive. This is our chance to offer tangible evidence of our heartfelt desire to build closer and stronger bonds of friendship with our counterparts throughout the entire world. WSSF is a living symbol of this desire of university students and professors around the world to collaborate in meeting the real needs of the university community. In America we need awareness. more information, greater contact and a fuller understanding of the problems and aspirations of our fellows in other lands. We here in America are a favored nation—wealthy and powerful beyond our understanding. Our standard of living is 10 times better than in parts of Europe and 100 times better than that in parts of Asia. Because we are rich and powerful, we are in danger of being misunderstood and feared. We must understand this tragic fact and act with responsibility, justice and generosity in full recognition of our favored position. Every dol...
*P&CCX [Newspaper Article] — Occidental — 13 March 1953
*P&amp;CCX By MING AND UTZINGER The mainstage production of “Lady Audley’s Secret” last week was such a beautiful cross between "The Drunkard” and a circus that all it needed was free beer between acts and sawdust on, Thorne Hall floor to make the illusion complete. The large audience enjoyed themselves so much that the paper throwing, etc., became distracting and proved again that some people have difficulty in behaving like adults. The whole show was Tory smoothly don* and Omar Paxson and th* cast should b* giv•n credit for maintaining that delicate balance between overly serious melodrama and burlesque which is so difficult to achieve in a play such as this one. Never at any time did one get the impression that the actors were taking themselves too seriously, and yet the play did not develop into a pure farce which would have left the audience laughing at the players instead of with them. The most brilliant performances were turned in by Dotty Jackson as the wicked Lady A...
Oxy Man Sees Needle, Squirms [Newspaper Article] — Occidental — 13 March 1953
Oxy Man Sees Needle, Squirms By JANICE DEAN Perk up! Stop worrying about that next final! Drag your feet out of the mollasses and listen. Why it’s been said the HEARTIEST men wobble at the sight of a needle. Now, naturally, Oxy Tigers nere would. Of course not!? Here’s the story of how one fellow was converted to the cause. Mickey and Joe were lovers true One night on a date they remembered the hour When benumbed by an icy cold winter shower. In the distance they saw a house on a hill With some hayracks and barn, even a still. They approached the great door with “Awe" full eye, The huge thing opened with a creaking sigh. The light of Joe’s lighter Made the room brighter And they looked around with a stare. There were posters hung everywhere! The plea? For BLOOD RED AND GOOD To help out those who’ve done all they could To make little children healthy again Not to answer would be like doing S I N. “Joe,” said Mickey, her arm on his sleeve, “Promise me, darling, that at the sight of th...
Oxy Gals Give More Blood Than Do Boys [Newspaper Article] — Occidental — 13 March 1953
Oxy Gals Give More Blood Than Do Boys By ELSIE FOREMAN This, week ye olde editor sez to me “How about a story on the many fine, upstanding young men and women of Occidental who are about to donate their corpuscles, for the first time to our men in Korea?” “Fine,” sez I as I skipped out to interview these patriotic students. I walked up to a typical strong, handosme Oxy man and asked, ‘‘Are you a first time blood donor?” ‘‘Heavens no!” he replied with some consternation, “I’m on my second gallon.” I slowly slunk away. Ah, but I was yet undaunted. On my tippy toes I surreptitiously sidled into the Off Campus Women’s Lounge where, in the best manner of Bobby Benson, boy cowboy, I lassoed some Tigresses (Tiger girls). Here I struck pay dirt. The following are excerpts from these interviews: Dorothy Hjelte, frosh 11, says, “I’m not afraid. I think it’s my duty to give blood. I feel that I have the individual responsibility of being able to help fellow Americans both here and in Korea.” M...
THIS TIME [Newspaper Article] — Occidental — 13 March 1953
THIS TIME It is so strange, in this modern day, how many people can so easily be misled. Lest over-emphasis obscure a good point, let me shift from politics to philosophy. And for a perfect example we should consider this thing called “positive thinking.” Many people want to think that if you believe something long enough and hard enough It will happen. Ha! This is not only foolish, it is tragic. It is a simple process of twisting a good philosophy around, and negating it—making it negative. Positive thinking is only valid and worthy of existence when it leads to positive action. You can sit around and wish until you are blue in the face that you had a car or an education. Sit there and wish all you want to. But if wanting something does not incite you to go out and get it, you are not "calling on the forces of the universe.” You are day-dreaming. Positive thinking is a modernized version of praying. And both of them are only valid when they bring about progressing constructive acti...
Loo Kee Here! [Newspaper Article] — Occidental — 13 March 1953
Loo Kee Here! By BETTY RATHBUN Query: Are you giving blood? Joel Davis —Sure, tell them to come around in the morning when I’m shaving and theyl’ll get all they want and more besides. Phil Rice —Are you kidding?* I haven’t got enough myself! Tom Bickford —Yes, because I can make more and they can’t and need it and can put it to a better use. Joan Packard —l’m afraid I’m not yet. My parents still have to sign my slip. Francis Hitchborn —No, I can’t since it’s been less than a month since I last gave. Bob Garcia— Sure, my Oxy blood ought to be good for the wounded sentries; it’s got so much no doz in it.
'Jazz Journey' [Newspaper Article] — Occidental — 13 March 1953
'Jazz Journey' By THE CATS Come along with us on a Journey. You'll hear Satchmo and the blues, you'll swing with Benny, the King of Swing; you'll soar again with Diz; you'll hear all these 'cause we're going on a Journey a "Jazz Journey." You’ve got to prepare for any trip, so let’s make ready with some basic articles and concepts. First let’s realize the importance of this trip. Jazz originated in the redlight district of New Orelans under sordid circumstances.. But do you realize the profound significance of this revolutionary action? If you don't, weigh it in your mind for a moment. The Negroes’ jazz is the only true pure American art form, and art form it is. It is something which is unexplainable. True, it can be said to be an improvisation based on a mixture of basic European harmonies and basic African rhythms, but that is not enough—not nearly enough. Jazz is a way of expressing motion, and there is no one set pattern for its presentation. It is distinguishable in cowboy ban...
TIGER GROWLS [Newspaper Article] — Occidental — 13 March 1953
TIGER GROWLS To Each His Own Dear Editorr I wish to register an emphatic protest against the use of the columns of The Occidental tqv appeals for the current blood drive. Unfortunately, the delusion has spread that this is a charitable and humanitarian cause, Actually, it only conceals its ‘ basically immoral and objectionable purpose by appealing to the nobler and unselfish sentiments of the students. Any blood drive which serves to strengthen soldiers at the war front and maintains them in their murderous and aggressive activities against foreign troops must be condemned as un-Christian. In cases of accidents, blood transfusions could conceivably be an expression of mercy and compassion since they fortify the bodies of helpless and inoffensive people. But the objective of the soldier is to kill, to spread violence, bloodshed, death and destruction. If he receives a wound on the battle front, it is because he has exposed himself to the-fire of another human being whose life he thre...
Friends Again [Newspaper Article] — Occidental — 13 March 1953
Friends Again In regard to a statement made here by me last week in a moment of despondency, after some thoughtful consideration I have come to the conclusion that Don Skraba is a fine, upstanding young man, the kind on which our future as Americans eventually depends. He is a serious student, a fine athlet# and a credit to Occidental. Incidentally, he is a very good friend of mine. Signed, Ray Taylor (P.S.: All right, Skraba, you can stop twisting my arm now!)'

Femme Fones Fouled [Newspaper Article] — Occidental — 13 March 1953
Femme Fones Fouled To be minus phone calls due to a mere printing error is beyond the endurance of Erdman Hall femmes. Haines Hall, they protest, is capitalizing on the fact that their numbers were printed opposite the neglected Erdman name in this year’s campus directory. The correct numbtrs are CLeveland 6-9224 and CLeveland 6-9233. DARSIE L. DARSIE

Honorary Alpha Phi Gammite Promotes Scribe Contest Two Years Darsie L. Darsie, chief editorial writer of the Los Angeles Herald-Express, was initiated this morning as an hcinorary member of Alpha Phi Gamma by Qxy’s chapter of the national honorary journalism fraternity, in ceremonies held at 9 o’clock in Darsie’s office. Hank Dickson, chapter president, and Mr. Lloyd Ritter, adviser, conducted the initiation. Darsie was cited for his many years of service to Southland journalism and for his helpfulness during the past two years in promoting quality entries in the Forest Lawn Memorial Journalism Awards contest. Born in New York state, Darsie attended Hollywood high school and Pomona College, although he left the latter institution in his senior year to enlist in the Navy. It seems that everyone’s major occupation at the time was winning a conflagration known as World War I. In 1919, he broke into journalism with the Los Angeles Record, and two years later became their golf columnist....
