WIT'S END [Newspaper Article] — Occidental — 27 March 1953

He even offered to draw us a heading, provided he could put our names on it. So we agreed. We’re too young to die, but for the cause of ethics we’ll sacrifice. You’ve probably never heard of us anyway so . . . HA!! Tha social scene was dominated last weekend by the annual ASCO Musicale, '"Where There's A Will." Tumultuous crowds lined in fro...
