Why Give? [Newspaper Article] — Occidental — 20 March 1953
Why Give? This Is the last day for the WSSF drive On this campus. Whether or not It has been a financial success, whiles a matter Of conjecture, Is still a matter of concern. Having been closely connected with the fund-raising during this week, it has been Interesting, if not somewhat awakening, to observe reactions of students to the drive. “Why give?” is a question often asked by those who do not know what WSSF does. If we cannot expect college students to understand the problem, how can we expect others without the supposed insight into world problems and especially without insight into student problems on an international scale, to understand? Leadership is a tool essential to progress. We in the United States train our leaders in schools available to all citizens. But in countries where educational systems are poor, or wholly lacking, the training for leadership suffers as a result. Not only is progress slowed down, but international cooperation becomes singularly difficult. “W...
Mitch Miller Has Boosted Top Stars [Newspaper Article] — Occidental — 20 March 1953
Mitch Miller Has Boosted Top Stars By RICHARD NORTON Starting with a show this past Tuesday, Tulley Brown is holding the disc jockey’s reins on O.X.Y. I formerly had a show called “Rick’s Kick,” but Tulley is now taking over and will be on the air at 5 p.m. Tuesdays. Tulley will spin the records as well as play with a trio featuring himself on piano, Tom Paul on vibes and Tony Newman on drums. Mr. Brown Is doing a fine job, so tune in 1340 on the dial Speaking of radio shows, did you realize that it takes a lot of technical assistance to put on a broadcast? And the same goes for any kind of a production whether it’s a play at Thorne Hall, a dance concert at the Women’s Gym or the noon music in the quad. Bob Noel, Greg Radosovich, Ming Cho Lee, Bill Rodman, Jim Ong, Bill MacKenzie, George Stevens, Joe Meeker and Bill Hazen are but a few of those who labor at length but receive little acclaim. Still, lt’» due to them that Oxy productions go so smoothly. Let’s move on to a third item ■...
C'mon Cats, We're Going to New Orleans on a 'Jazz Journey' [Newspaper Article] — Occidental — 20 March 1953
C'mon Cats, We're Going to New Orleans on a 'Jazz Journey' By THE CATS Last week we invited you to take a trip to the land of jazz. Now the wonderful “Deep River Blues” is pulsating through the hovel where it originated. The beauty of the essence of the true jazz is so overpowering that it seems impossible to ever express the story to you in words. But you must know, so realize that these words fall from those who have heard the call of the trumpet from across the delta and the moan of the blues from the fields. We'll take our trip. Follow us and listen hard, very hard, and you'll hear it too. New Orleans—“the Hub”—the river roustabouts—the plantation worker—(and women) — and a few more with junky musical Instruments, men who were never tolfl what a white man’s music could, or should, do. These are the fellows we’re going to see. Yeah, let’s ride down to the Crescent City in the years before the first war. "Man. do you hear that Cle Joe Oliver's swinging down Perdido Street. Here th...
THIS TIME BY GRUBER [Newspaper Article] — Occidental — 20 March 1953
THIS TIME BY GRUBER 'TSY Two summers ago I worked in a large office in Los Angeles. It was a place which gave me constant and considerable consternation in a variety of forms. I always felt that how ever little work I did, it was more than enough for the paltry salary they squeezed out to me. When I was not working, I was in a state of fear that my big fat old boss would discover why I was putting in so much overtime. It was toward the end of the summer when one particular event occurred. I was ready to leave the office and go back to you know where in September. 1 think It happened on a Tuesday. It doesn't matter, except that I thought I would never forget the day. The clock was going around as slowly as ever, and I was sitting at my desk. Suddenly that feeling came over me that I am sure you have all experienced. I knew what I must do. I got up quietly from my place, unlocked my chains, and went down the hall to the room marked “Men.” By the time I arrived I was in no mood for idl...
TIGER GROWLS [Newspaper Article] — Occidental — 20 March 1953
TIGER GROWLS Tigers Roar We too believe in “to each his own opinio n,” but the shocking protests and fallacious logic lying behind the Tiger Growl in last week’s Tiger Growls column was just too much for us to swallow. We certainly do not regard participation in the Red Cross Blood Campaign as unchristian and immoral. Unfortunate as it may be, the objective of American soldiers Is to kill, granted.... but that which he is seeking to kill and stamp out is a vicious form of totalitarianism which is endeavoring to crush and enslave the freedom loving people of the world. We seriously doubt that American soldiers wantonly anticipate the opportunity to spread death and destruction, nor are they made “proper- ’ tionately bold and aggressive during battle’’ because they know that thousands of pints of blood are available should they be rendered “incapacitated.” The American soldier finds himself on the battlefield because he believes in the worth of the individual and the cherished America...
FAUX PAS [Newspaper Article] — Occidental — 20 March 1953
FAUX PAS By MING AND UTZINOEB Once again we learn how Christian love and self-saori-fice trimuph over power and pagan bestiality, this time in Charles Rann Kennedy’s one acter, “Face of God” produced last weekend in Oxy’s Play* mill. If this is a play for contentplatives, as it claims to be, then it lacked the one ingredient necessary for a thought-provok-ing dramatic experience —• namely a new insight into an old problem. This play described the problem with much intriguing symbolism and in places, pretty poetry, but after a promising beginning in which the Jun* gian “persona” theory was introduced through a maker of masks, the play launched into a visual and dramatic interpretation of an ordinary sermon on the power of Christian love. Here we would like to 'ay our respect to the director, Gary Phillips, who has indeed weathered storms and crises in producing "Face of Go d." Against the limitations of time, place and the play itself, 'Face of God" as a playmill production was remar...
BOX ONE [Newspaper Article] — Occidental — 20 March 1953
BOX ONE By Red Gresham Tonight and tomorrow night * in Thorne Hall, the ASOC is putting on a musical comedy entitled "Where There’s A Will.” This is the culmination of many hours of discussion followed by many more hours of good hard work. This show almost didn’t happen—twice. At the end of last year, there was some discussion about the advisability of having a musical this year. At this time a set of rules was drawn up to eliminate, or at least minimize this happening again. Joel Davis and his group melt these conditions and hence were granted the opportunity to seek financial aid and official sanction from the ASOC council. It is the feeling of the council that the money in the ASOC treasury is for the use of the students. It comes from them and should be used in their interests. The council, as the» elected representatives of the students, merely decides which projects are most deserving of this support. The council feels that the underwriting of a student production is a legitim...
A New Topic! [Newspaper Article] — Occidental — 20 March 1953
A New Topic! Dear Editor: This week a copy of "The World Rebuilt” by Peter Howard is being sent to every foreign student in the United States. I have known the Moral Rearmament Movement, which is the subject of this book, for the past few years, and I can say with confidence that the book is extremely inspiring and interesting to all those who have any concern with the world in crisis as well as foreign students. As one of the 30,000 foreign students in this country, I would like to see that every one of them will take back this ideology with them. For these future leaders of the world it will be the best gift that America can give. • Shunichiro Ito Graduate ’52
