S*td Well, you can retire to your cells, girls. Coed Hop is over, so It's time to go back into hibernation for another year, or at least till Pan Hell, when the trauma begins again. However, despite our earlier pessimism concerning this annual affair, the dance seemed to be well attended and a veritable success. We squinted dimly through the prevailing green lights trying to distinguish a few couples from the leprechaun dummies, and came up with several (looking the least like dummies). They werei Dotty Fadness. Stan Kimball; Barbara Brown, Paul Warner; Barbara Kennedy, Dan Demaree; Nancy Crltchlow, Bill Gregory; Gloria Clark, George Novinger; Sophie Dimitriadis, Ronnie Botchan; Chip Hoffman, Barbara Broad; Andy Blough, Mark Trotter; Tom Mitchell, Pat Witheral; Diane Harden, Charlie Cook; Betty Rathbun, Tom Bickford; Ann Zwicker, Bob Harden; Rachel Bryant, Wayne Barnes; Rod Trader, Sally Palmer; Don Taylor, Joan Rouse; Bruce Gilliland, Nan Marimon; Ginger Smith, Phil Pres be r; Ann ...

Beaumont and Reitzell Win At Coed Hop Strictly Social Ye Olde Freeman Union took on a “new look’’ last Saturday night for the Blarney Ball. And a mighty fine look It was, too. Even the patio changed into an Irish fantasy with gnomes and elves sitting by a pond. The pillars were disguised with Ivy twines. Inside 'the Union interest was focused on a wee Irish cottage otherwise known as Miss Morrison’s office. It was accentuated with white shutters and ivy. A wishing well drew considerable attention to another corner, and white latticework and Ivy gave the finishing touches to the room. 172 bids were sold to this annual affair, which means 344 lads and lassies must have thoroughly enjoyed their evening of dancing. Lou Reitzell and Ann Beaumont walked off with the best corsage prizes. Lou’s was acclaimed most artistic In de.sign, and Ann’s the most original. Both girls received orange and black Oxy animals. Dancing was a pleasure to the music of Keith Williams and his band. Even the Bun...

'P'KM'bectcay [Newspaper Article] — Occidental — 20 March 1953
'P'KM'bectcay By Joan Davis Starting off the week with a bang, the AU-Pledge Ditch took almost everybody by surprise. It seemed to be generally known that all the culprits were hiding out at Mountain View (or something) Lodge in La Crescenta, so those NASTY actives wasted no time in crashing the partyl The whole affair turned out to be a grand success, since most actives ended up having as much fun dancing, etc. as the pledges.One lone major mishap stands out. There was a case of kidnaping not solved for about two hours—one female Alpha pledge by twenty (approximately) SAE pledges I Speaking of St. Patrick’s Day, Co-ed Hop turned out a big success (as always). Corsages were oustanding (also as usual) and competition was keen for the prize. Clara T. and Red G. were in the running as usual. Some people certainly capitalize on their assets. Last year, some will remember, this couple showed up with blond and red (der) wigs on, and this year, Red wore a leprechaun (is that spelled right?...

JORDANMEN GARNER TROPHY AT BIG LONG BEACH TRACKFEST One gold trophy for its victory in the two-mile relay was all that Coach Payton Jordan’s spirited band of Oxy thinclads were able to garner at the Long Beach Relays last Saturday. The Tigers also managed to lake a third in the four-man 880-yard relay to end a rather dull day for the tracksters from Eagle Rook. Big Meet Almost 1000 athletes participated in the long marathon which lasted from 11:40 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. One talks about three-ring circuses, but this one must have had at least 10 rings. There were relays and field events for everyone from hometown junior high kids to the open division teams like Occidental. USC, UCLA, LACC and the red-hot San Diego NTC sprinters. A bothersome crosswind was blowing into the faces of the sprinters, and all finishers in the relay events helped keep all of the open division meet records well intact. Also by late in the afternoon the weather had become chilly and the track became slow-lrom use....

Bulldogs Stop Oxy; Tigers Play Poets Occidental’s horsehiders got off on a sour note last Saturday when the citrus-belters from Redlands squeezed out a 10-to-3 victory over the Tigers. Tomorrow the Oxy nine will journey out to Whittier to see if they can get back on the winning path. Game time is 3 p.m. ~ Wally Pitts, the erstwhile Bulldog hurler, silenced the Bengal bats with but three singles and almost single-handed put an end to the Oxy 15-game SCIC winning streak. Pitts was just too much for the Bengals to handle. He sent 13 of the Eagle Rock men walking back to the bench via the strike-out route. Pitts also displayed a lack of control as he walked nine batters, but they were well scattered and never got him into serious trouble. Groat Produces Oxy hurler Russ Groat got off to a shaky start, and the Bulldoggers made the most of it by notching three, four and two runs off the Oxy hurle*- in the first three innings, respectively. Russ then settled down for the next six innings an...
