iWITN? £f4D PY 4 Here we are. as usual sitting on the mezzanine of the library, thinking of those beautiful 36 hours of sunshine at the beach last week. It seems there were many Oxyites populating that locale last week. Roughly, these people can be divided into three classifications: those who tanned, those who worked and those who went to parties. Strangely enough, we seem to have the most names for the latter group. Those who enjoyed ammassing income for the holidays were Dick Pearson, who ran the ferry practically single-handed from the Island to Bal, and Harry Lawrence and Dan Oredson, who operated a booth at the fun zone, running a soft drink stand on the side. Those who were out braving the fog were, according to Jim Delaney: Jim Delaney, Scroungy Dave Teachout, Jim Wakeman, Bob Delong, Terry Vargo and Bob Hoskins. On to the general parties! Living it up were: Doris Anderson, Jim Regan; Diane Sumner, Les Padfield; Linda Lyman, George Francis; Glnny Goss, John Cushman; Colleen ...

Goif Team Fares Well at Stanford; Harway Shines Coach Dick Thompson’s golf team fared pretty well up at Stanford in the Northern California Intercollegiate Golf Tourney two weeks ago. Oxy’s team score was 10 strokes better than last year and the Bengals also walked off with a first and a runner-up spot in the flight competition. Competition for team honors was very rigorous and the Tiger golfers only managed to take eighth place in a field of seventeen. Stanford, whose varsity won the team title and whose frosh captured fourth spot, had a decided advantage playing on their own campus course. Gaines Duels Argue John Gaines led Oxy in qualifying with a 79. In his first match in the first flight Gaines was paired against none other than teammate John Argue. After a closely contested match which included little good golf, Gaines won one up. Gaines then proceeded to lose his afternoon match to Fred Streble of Oregon, 3 and 2. Lee Dudley, who last year won the fourth flight, turned in a m...
