Do You Agree? [Newspaper Article] — Occidental — 27 March 1953
Do You Agree? An American history prof asked his class for a list of the eleven greatest Americans, reports the Postscript, Richmond Professional Institute, Virginia. While the students wrote, the teacher strolled around the room. Finally he paused at one desk and asked the youth if he had finished his list. “Not yet,” said the student, “I can’t decide on the fullback.”
Would You Like to Be a Rabbit? Mule? [Newspaper Article] — Occidental — 27 March 1953
Would You Like to Be a Rabbit? Mule? By ELSIE FOREMAN Or would you rather be a mule? Maybe the words to this old popular song have more significance than we poor peons think. That at least is the opinion of David Cole, assistant professor of psychology here at Occidental. Cole contends that by asking a person what animal hewould most like to be and why, a psychologist can tell certain facts about the personality of the Individual. “Most people seem to assume that animals have many of the same feelings and attitudes, desires and ambitions as human beings," Cole says. "They're right to some small extent. Bui what we often overlook is that more often we see our own feelings and attitudes, desires and ambitions reflected in the animal's behavior." Suppose one person wants to belong to the ant family because of its orderly society and seeming intelligence. This would indicate a person who prized these qualifies. On the other hand, another person might dislike being an ant because it is s...
Four Tigers-From One Den [Newspaper Article] — Occidental — 27 March 1953
Four TigersFrom One Den By Helen Robinson Imagine running into one of your relatives almost every time you stroll across campus! Not everyone would relish the Idea of attending college with two-thirds of his family, but Oxy’s four Gilliland brothers seem to enjoy it! When asked that unique question, “Why did you come to Oxy,?” Keith, a sophomore, said, “I like a small college and Oxy’s friendly atmosphere and high scholastic standards.” Apparently Bruce, Victor, Vincent, and the remaining few of us agree with' him. All of the Gillilands attended Huntington Park High School, where Bruce and Keith served as student body presidents, and Vince as his senior class prexy. Bruce, a senior pre-med, spent his frosh year at the University of Arizona on scholarship, but transferred to Oxy to set a good example for his younger brothers. Victor and Vince, both freshmen, are twins. If Keith’s twin brother had not died in infancy, Oxy might boast five Gilliland boys this year. All four brothers ar...
Record Test Reveals Bruce B's 'Hepness' [Newspaper Article] — Occidental — 27 March 1953
Record Test Reveals Bruce B's 'Hepness' By RICHARD NORTON This week we’re trying something a little different. It’s the blindfold test, a test which is also one of the many excellent features of Downbeat Magaaine. The guest reviewer this week is Bruce Baggett, who plays a lot of swinging clarinet around campus—mainly with Bill Rohr, Rich Wonder and Tony Newman. As you may have gathered from the name of the test, Bruce was given no information whatsoever about the records until he had expressed the views recorded herein. In rating, four is equivalent to excellent, three is good, two equals 'air, and one is poor. 1. "Stomping at the Savoy" (Woody Herman’s Downbeat poll winner of 1952) sounds like Kenton. That's a good tune that’s been around for years. It has a very danceable beat wait, maybe that’s not Kenton. It’s sure unusual to hear a clarinet on his records. I’d say four stars. 2. “Easy to Remember" (Bob Keene)—good clarinet—dreamy and danceable—very commercial; nothing radical a...
Answer Given to Cafe Line [Newspaper Article] — Occidental — 27 March 1953
Answer Given to Cafe Line By SANDY SCOTT A survey has been made by Miss Morrison, dining room manager, in answer to the popular question: “Why is the dining room line always so long?” Statistics showed that in one morning by 7:30, 65 people were served. In the next 20 minutes, 136 people were served, but from 7:45 to 8:00 a.m., 116 people came through the line. Then 43 were served in the remaining 15 minutes. At noon, 100 students went through the line in the first 10 minutes. In the next 20 minutes, 230 students went through. From 12:10 to 12:30 there were 76 students and in the last 15 minutes there were only 36 students. In the evening, 139 were through by 6:00, 117 in the next 15 minutes and 106 by 6:30. LINE OPEN LONGER NOT NECESSARYI This shows that it isn’t necessary to leave the line open longer, but that the students have plenty of time if they didn’t all come at once. Open- ing the line longer or earlier would also affect many time schedules of the employees. 10 PEOPLE SER...
FAUX PAS [Newspaper Article] — Occidental — 27 March 1953
FAUX PAS By MING AND UTZINGER Since both of your critics were intimitately involved with the production of "Where There's a Will" we were somewhat at a loss as to how we should handle it in this column. We were relieved when we found this bit stuck to our door with a hunting knife. It was signed "Three Drama Lovers." Those who saw last weekend’s musical, Where There’s a Will” saw the greatest show since “Gold Diggers of 1927.” The jokes 'were the same, too. Worthy of special mention are the following: SCHYLER SCHYLER, lll— For the second time in history an audience has been assailed by the jawbone of an ass. Atta boy, Christine! PEONY —The only sparkplug that was hitting in an otherwise missing vehicle. JOHNNY— This kid blew more lines than a Kansas Tornado. MA AND PA —A wedding of medliocrity. Ma could handle heavier roles, for example, “The Phantom of the Opera.” Pa, as soon as he overcomes his affliction, will go places in the theater. ANNOUNCER— His intermittant benedictions see...
r [Newspaper Article] — Occidental — 27 March 1953
r TS'f Due to the endless stream of requests from the multitudes for my picture, I herewith humbly offer on®* There are two further reasons for its appearance beret (1) No one else on this paper has ever thought to print one —and probably never will, and (2) I’m getting tirecj of people complaining within my hearing distance of how dreadful that Gruber person is with his nasty column. And.now that you know who I am, please refrain from derogatory comments about "This Time.” Understandably, I do not agree with you. Perhaps you may be wondering about the history behind this picture. Then again, perhaps not. Anyway, I’ll tell you. Incidentally, before I start, the Japanese girl standing directly behind me was an old friend. Her name was "Go Minnie Sigh,” and she followed me for three years without ever speaking. I found out later that she had mistaken me for a missionary that had stolen her mother's wedding ring. It’s all cleared up now, thank goodness. She went back to Japan. Not ever...
