(Mbectcaa [Newspaper Article] — Occidental — 27 March 1953
(Mbectcaa By Joan Davis Having decided that this column needed a definite 'lift' just for the sake of variety, this week, I have decided to subtitle my items as you see below. (This is supposed to be the 'spice of life’ you know—not my column, but VARIETY.) Past First item of importance that comes under the heading of past news, is of course the ASOC musicale, “Where There’s a Will.” All persons involved did fine acting jobs, in my opin-. lon, the music was catchy, the lyrics especially clever and the plot a great improvement over last year’s. Rachel Bryant did an outstanding job as Peony, and her costumes were superb (especially the green sack). Present Religious Emphasis Week Is drawing to a close, and what a wonderful success it has been. Dr. Stein was certainly an excellent choice for speaker of the week. Not only did he show his capacities to think, analyze and delivar a speech, but he also has a sense of humor! For the benefit of those not present to hear this quip—Dr. Stein c...

Earlier in the sea...

Oxy Gymmen Crush Aztecs At San Diego Oxy ’ s powerful musclemen ventured to San Diego last Saturday and showed no mercy to their hosts, San Diego State College, as they simply annihilated the Aztecs 77 to 13. And as the case has been in their four previous meets, Don Lantz was again the top-point-getter for the Tigers,, Lantz garnered 27 points by walking off with blue ribbons in the high bar, tumbling, trampoline end all-around events.

Frosh Racquet Club Beats Potent Poets [Newspaper Article] — Occidental — 27 March 1953
Frosh Racquet Club Beats Potent Poets By Chuck Hammond On Friday afternoon the Tiger tennis teams split with Whittier on the home courts. The Whittier varsity hit the Oxy upperclassman hard, 7-2, but the Tiger frosh beat the Whittier freshman easily. The Bengal green-beany boys looked very good in copping their initial win of the season. With improved performances by some of the less-experienced members the Tigerkits may provide tough competition for the rest of their opponents. In the varsity match the Bengals were again outclassed, this time by the league-lead-ing poets. However, the Feline racket-swingers scored their first points of the season. The Marshall Marauders finally came through in doubles, as Ted Pettit and Dick Martin, resoundingly whopped the Poet doubles combo. Oxy’s third doubles team was also victorious. This coming Saturday the Oxy cotton-clobberers take on the Pepperdine Waves at Pepperdine. The Bengals go into this practice match without much of a chance on pap...

Tigerkits Thwart Percy Poet, 110-6 [Newspaper Article] — Occidental — 27 March 1953
Tigerkits Thwart Percy Poet, 110-6 By JIM TERRILL To say that the Occidental freshmen thinclads met and defeated the Whittier frosh last Saturday afternoon would be the ultimate in understatement. Even to state that the Tigers were contested would be going too far, for the truth of the matter was that a half dozen points was all that kept the peaked Poets from being shut out. For when the dust finally settled, the tally read 110 to 6. The first of eight sweeps came in the opening event, the mile run. George Holland outlasted Hal Hurley for the win, both being clocked in 4:31.2. Vic Gilliland, showing much improvement of late, nabbed third. Foster Takes Vince Foster tore off the speediest 440 of the season, crossing the line in 51.9. A 1 Haimson and Rod Newcomb took second and third. The century saw a school record crumble as Larry Newquist turned in a torrid 9.9 ticking. Bill Carling and A 1 Kiser were right there for second and third. The furlong was Bill Carling’s meat as he sped ...

Stiff Test The tournament will prove a stiff test for the team and the Bengals hope they will do well.

TRACKSTERS BUSY! Scanty Clods to Offer SC Tc/uoh Time in Flat Races By BERT WOODRUFF Saturday, April 4, the growl of the rampaging Tiger will fill the Los Angeles Coliseum as the Oxy scanty dads take on the powerful Trojans of Southern California in their annual titanic of the cinderpaths. The depth of the Trojans in the field events and the hurdles will tell the tale as they figure to take this annual tussle. However, Oxy will furnish many thrills for the onlookers as they will offer some mighty stiff competition in the flat races and In at least two of the field events. Off past performances, Brayton Norton, Tiger iron man, should take the javelin. Duane Cain threw one of the best distances of his career against Whittier last week and adds the possibility that both boys may be able to crack 188 feet, which is the best the Trojans have to offer. The other field event which could go to Oxy is the pole valut. Tiger Jim Regan’s best of 13 feet barely surpasses SC’s Hecht at 12 feet 11...
Poets Trounced As Tigers Keep Record Clean [Newspaper Article] — Occidental — 27 March 1953
Poets Trounced As Tigers Keep Record Clean Last Saturday, the Oxy thinclads placed their SCIC track supremacy on a supposedly shaky pedestal which proved to be pretty secure as the Bengals turned back a hard-fight-ing bunch of Poets from Whittier College. The Tigers swept six events as well as 11 firsts to pile up a 97-34 score and place themselves on the inside lane in the drive for the conference dual meet championship. Three meet records fell and two school records, one each for Whittier and Oxy, went into the books. In the javelin, Iron-man Brayton Norton cracked the meet mark of 183 feet 2% inches and also threw for a new school standard with a heave of 197 feet 7% inches besting the old mark by over a foot. Duane Cain also broke the meet record to take second place behind Norton with a toss of 188 feet 514 inches. George Novinger turned in his best mark of the year to capture third and make this event a Tiger sweep. Bonham to Easy Win Russ Bonham of Whittier came through as ex...
BENGALS MEET POMONACLAREMONT SATURDAY [Newspaper Article] — Occidental — 27 March 1953
BENGALS MEET POMONACLAREMONT SATURDAY • A real old-time track gigantic, featuring those two traditional foes, Occidental and Pomona-Claremont, tangle on the Claremont oval at 1:30 tomorrow afternoon. And although Payton Jordan’s power-laden Tigers will be heavy favorites to their fourth dual meet of the season, the Sagehens are planning to offer the Eagle Rockmer plenty of stiff competition before the day ends. Pomona "Up" Pomona is always "up” for the Tiger clash and should come through tomorrow with some surprisingly good efforts, especially in the 100, both hurdle events and the high jump. Claremont will be led by their outstanding junior dash man, Ted Anderson. Anderson is listed for action in the 100, high and low hurdles, all of which he scored wins in last week. Dashes Close Tomorrow’s meet will be mostly a parade of individual performers and the best race very probably will be the 100yard dash, where Chuck Gerry and Jim Noble of Oxy will match steps with Anderson down the st...
Frosh Journey to Santa Barbara To Go in Annual Relay Festival [Newspaper Article] — Occidental — 27 March 1953
Frosh Journey to Santa Barbara To Go in Annual Relay Festival A group of eleven frosh athletes will head for Santa Barbara to participate in the annual Santa Barbara Relays Saturday, April 4. Much attention will be focused upon Coach Dick Wells’ young crew as they will attempt to break several Relay records. For Oxy, main interest will locus on the distance medley relay (440, 880, 1320, mile) in which Coach Wells has entered the powerful foursome of Vince Foster, Ed Shinn, Hal Hurley and George Holland. If things go well the Bengals could easily break the present record of 10;41.55. Strongest competition in this event should come from the USC frosh, UCLA frosh, LACC and possibly a team from Valley JC. Speedy Crew Foster will come back later in the afternoon to team up with A 1 Kiser, Bill Carling and Larry Newquist in the 440 yard relay. Oxy will have to be called a strong contender for the blue ribbon in this one too. USC will probably loom as the favorites to take this race at pos...
★ Quit Griping! [Newspaper Article] — Occidental — 27 March 1953
★ Quit Griping! Young men of today are faced with the problem of armed service. Still, this is no sign for them to stop planning for their future. Hearing such statements as, “I might as well go out and shoot the works; they get me sooner or later,” fhakes a draft-eligible student sit up and take notice. What about Korea? Even if there were no Koreas, other problems would take its place. Life is no bed of roses. Take the boy who has to work a couple of years to save up for college. He has a problem. He doesn’t give up and forget about going to school. Another point he can knock around a bit is how lucky he is. He should compare himself with other young, men over the World. The British boy, for instance, the one who lost his mother and father during the last war. Place yourself in his shoes. We’re pretty lucky here In the good old U.S.A. That man in the wheelchair had the right idea when he said, “We’ll see this thing through yet.” —From The Chart, Joplin (Mo.) Junior College
★ Who's Right? [Newspaper Article] — Occidental — 27 March 1953
★ Who's Right? Whether we realize it or not, many of the folks at home regard us as just so many draft dodgers—not as the future leaders of the nation as so many commencement speakers would lead us to believe. But before we jump down the old fogies’ throats, let’s pause for a little analysis of the situation. We realize that only our bad actions make headlines: We may be as pure as the driven snow for 364 days—but watch the headlines for that one day of drunken Celebration the folks at home do. They are inclined to think our actions a little juvenile when we try to buy out the taverns, destroy property and make general asses of ourselves. The people who give out the scholarships are inclined to balk when they realize that their money is going for that demon rum instead of school books. And when we gripe at student wages —or wonder why dad doesn’t come through with that raise in allowance — we might pause. And read the headlines. —From The Daily Kansan, U. of Kansas
BOX ONE [Newspaper Article] — Occidental — 27 March 1953
BOX ONE By Red Gresham Well, the wheels are starting to roll again. The election train is rolling around again. It seems as if it were only yesterday that I was asking myself the same questions that are now spinning around in many of your minds. The answer is "yes," go ahead and run. I firmly believe that there is not a single person on this campus who is not capable of filling some office In the ASOC, AWS, or AMS, and doing a very credible Job of it. Student government is a privilege we enjoy. We must use it wisely and keep it strong if we expect to continue to enjoy it. While sometimes things happen to us (the ASOC) which I wish could be prevented, we have a remarkable degree of self-gov-ernment. We have the equal, and in most cases a far greater realm of jurisdiction in regard to student activities, than any school with which I am familiar. We have our own book store, we have an ASOC manager whose job it is to counsel and help us, we have our own funds and draw up our budget and ...
'Ham' Dick Cowan Picks Up Short Wave from USSR [Newspaper Article] — Occidental — 27 March 1953
'Ham' Dick Cowan Picks Up Short Wave from USSR By June Dawson Short wave radio usually carries a connotation of megacycles and high frequencies. (To this unscientific mind at least.) But talk to sophomore Dick Cowan about his hobby and you really get the travel buy. Dick has been a radio addict for a couple of years. A year ago he started collecting “verification cards.” That’s where the travel mania comes Jn. For the uneducated, verification cards are sent, in answer to listeners’ requests, from all parts of the world. If you hear a program on a distant station, you write, giving details of the broadcast, and the station verifies your information. Dick’s collection of cards looks like the Inside of a travel bureau. Asia, Africa, Europe, Australia, and North and South America are all represented. Pagodas, pictures of Finland, and views of Australian sheep farms, mentally lengthen Easter vacation a month or two and make you wish for the money to see the world. Postcards of the Kremli...
