Sprint Relay learn Runs 43.3 In Windy City [Newspaper Article] — Occidental — 10 April 1953
Sprint Relay learn Runs 43.3 In Windy City The Oxy frosh journeyed to Santa Barbara last Saturday to participate in the annual Eacter Relays and turned in an outstanding time when the Tiger quartet of Al Kiser, Bill Carling, Larry Foster and Larry Newquist won the 440 yard relay in a startling 43.3 seconds. This was the best time of the day in this event, bettering the varsity time by almost a full second. Larry Newquist and Al Kiser finished second and fourth respectively in the 100 yard dash, behind SC’s Decker in the time of 10.4 seconds. Tom Meyer took a third place in the 120 yard high hurdles, and Kelly Hester placed fourth in the discus, the event which saw a new SC freshman record established by Patterson when he twirled the platter for a distance of 159 ft. 3 in. Four Oxy varsity thinclads, Chuck Miller, Ev Trader, Gil McFadden and Gill Hess, placed second in the 880 yard relay and the mile relay behind San Diego NTC both times.
Tennis Team Starts Second Round Play [Newspaper Article] — Occidental — 10 April 1953
Tennis Team Starts Second Round Play After a poor first round, the Oxy tennis combo looks like it might get rolling. Despite losing three practice matches the last week before Easter, the Bengal ball-bashers began to show flashes of their true capabilities. They travel to Redlands tomorrow morning for a 9 o’clock match with the league-leading Bulldogs. Because of the early hour the Tigers may not be at their best as they must leave here at 5 a.m. and drive for three hours. Two weeks ago, the Bengals traveled to Pepperdine for a practice match. Although they lost, the Bengals showed new signs of strength for the first time. Winners in their matches were Ted Pettit and John Roney. Roney has been Oxy’s only consistent scorer in the Tigers’ last four matches.
Outstanding Duals Top Frosh Titanic [Newspaper Article] — Occidental — 10 April 1953
Outstanding Duals Top Frosh Titanic By BERT WOODRUFF Tomorrow, the Oxy frosh take on the Trojan thinclads from USC in a Patterson Field meet which could bring revenge for the varsity’s defeat last Saturday at the hands of the mighty Trojan. This meet, beginning at 2 o’clock tomorrow afternoon, will be a close one all the way, with the mile relay shaping up as the deciding factor. Newquist vs. Decker The dashes look like dead heats with Larry Newquist of Oxy and SC’s Decker fighting it out for the honors in the century. Decker has the best time, a 9.7 seconds, for the dash, but both boys have been running almost identical times recently and either one could take it. Decker beat Newquist last Saturday in the Santa Barbara Relays but later, in the 440 relay, Newquist finished in front, SC’s Decker taking third. Decker also rates high in the 220 yard dash, but Larry Foster figures to carry the Black and Gold to first place. Oxy could also take a second, as Tiger Carling has recorded a f...
Oxy Spikers Down Pomona [Newspaper Article] — Occidental — 10 April 1953
Oxy Spikers Down Pomona A pair of potent Occidental track teams defeated PomonaClaremont two weeks ago, the varsity winning 115%-15%, and the frosh taking a 102%-28% decision. In the varsity affair the Tigers walked off with blue ribbons in 14 of the 15 events and swept eight completely. Brayton Norton and Jon Speer led the deadly Oxy assault with double victories. Norton took the broad jump at 21 ft 9 in. and the javelin with a toss of 177 ft. 9 in. He was also clocked in the fast time of 48.6s for the anchor lap on the winning relay team. Speer surprised everyone by defeating Norton in the 220 in the impressive time of 21.7. Jon also edged Gil McFadden in a thrilling 440 race running the quarter in 50s flat. Speer ended the day by running a lap on the relay. A sterling performance was turned in by Claude Fiddler in the two mile run. Fiddler turned in his best time of the season, 9:49.5, and if he had been at all pushed he could very easily have lowered his time a few seconds. Dick...
★ We Don't Play Favorites! [Newspaper Article] — Occidental — 10 April 1953
★ We Don't Play Favorites! The other "day one of our columnists came to us quite disturbed. The writer—author of “Box 1,” and student body president on the side was upset because part of his column of March 20 had been deleted. This column dealt with the ASOC musical being staged that week. Because of space restrictions, a few internal paragraphs had to be cut by the feature editor. He seemed to feel that this editing constituted a wholesale betrayal of the ASOC by The Occidental. Such was not the case. Consulting other sections of The Occi- dental beyond the editorial page, he would have found that since last fall there have been enough news stories, features, banner headlines and pictures concerning the musical to fill almost a complete issue. Indeed, that very day it was the number one story on the front page. We feel that the writer’s irritation resulted more from the fact that something he wrote himself was cut out rather than that the musical was overlooked. May we just remind...
Duke Rates Tops as 'Jazz' [Newspaper Article] — Occidental — 10 April 1953
Duke Rates Tops as 'Jazz' By RICHARD NORTON Have you ever gotten tired of that oh so lovely, warm and heart rending tale of the dog in the window? Well, a good antidote for that shaggy dog story was the concert held in the Pasadena Civic the first Monday of vacation. Duke Ellington was the featured attraction and Gerry Mulligan’s quartet, the Herman McCoy Swing Choir and Oscar Pettiford also appeared on the program. It was well planned and (from this point of view) was one of the best conceived jazz concerts heard in this area for some time. It has been thirty-five years since Duke started out in the band business, A lot of jazz history has been made in that period. But Duke’s band is not dated. It has kept abreast of the times and incorporates the best of the old and the new. After hearing Duke at this last concert, this observer would like to agree with the leading critic Leonard Feather that Ellington has the best major jazz (and get this straight jazz, not dance) bond in existen...
THIS TIME BY GRUBER [Newspaper Article] — Occidental — 10 April 1953
THIS TIME BY GRUBER THIS TIME BY GRUBER Exclusive! Now it can be told! I was not a Communist for the FBI; I was not even a liberal for the unAmerican committee. But —now get this— l was Martha Adams for all of Texas! Yes, it’s true. With the help of a red wig, a tremendous amount of padding, and almost as much make-up, I spent Easter vacation in Texas disguised as Martha Adams! Some of the most fascinating episodes of the trip unfortunately cannot appear in print, but let me give you a brief outline of what happened. The first few hours were the hardest for me to assume my role. All bedecked in a gingham Easter formal I said goodbye to the girls at the dorm as best I could, then beat it down to the airport. As I boarded the plane the hostess greeted me and showed me to my seat. I felt obligated to play my role fully, so I decided to show my friendly spirit to the pilot. I sneaked up behind him at the controls and when he looked the other way I leaped into action. I yanked back on th...
TIGER GROWLS [Newspaper Article] — Occidental — 10 April 1953
TIGER GROWLS Food for Thought As a small, private, leberal arts college, Occidental professes as a major concern the stimulating of thinking in its students. Is this taking place? Do we have any stimulating, Individual thinking on this campus? A discussion group during RE Week raised several serious questions about this problem. They are as follows: 1. What do Oxy students discuss over the dinner table? Sports, the weather, Union food, or ideas from classes and lectures? 2. How much interest arises about current political Issues or world events? What happens to groups such as the Young Republicans or Democrats during non-election years? How about the UN Club? 3. How much extra (non-as-signed) material do students read for their courses? 4. What happens to student interest in the Remsen Bird Lectures, or in the special conferences and speakers that come to Oxy? 5. Do students show any initiative in choosing term paper topics of their own, or are the professor’s suggestions the only o...
BOX ONE By Red Gresham [Newspaper Article] — Occidental — 10 April 1953
BOX ONE By Red Gresham Well, here it is, just seven more weeks until it’s all over but the finals and the shouting. It doesn’t seem possible that four years have passed so swiftly. And the next few weeks will go faster than ever. If you want proof, just go check the social calendar for the month that is posted on the bulletin board. Every day of the month there are at least three or four events scheduled. We humans are funny creatures. The less time we have, the more things we try to crowd into it. Dr. Heath of the Political Science Department suggested to me what I think is a very good idea. He said we should have set aside one (at least one) week a semester and call It "Academic Week" or something similar. During "Academic Week’ we would study. There would be no Easter Egg Hunts, no religious speakers, no fund drives, no rallies in the quad, no mixers, no athletics, nothing. In other words, we would study. Anyway, to move on, I got to shooting the breeze with a couple of friends t...
