Prospecting [Newspaper Article] — Occidental — 17 April 1953
Prospecting By Joan Davis Actually there isn't much use wracking my brain for some scintillating comments this week, since after the reader is finished with all the letters of recommendation, there really won't be much time to perus the rest of the paper. However, I shall write under the delusion that SOMEONE, somewhere will read and perhaps get a chuckle. Speaking of chuckles, periodically I try to include some news as it cames to the switchboard operator over the wires. In the past few weeks there have been a couple of incidents which rather tickled my funnybone, and here they are; A person called about three weeks ago, and wanted to inquire about employment. This perosn wished to know about working on the ‘graveyard shift’ at Oxy. Perhaps the individual thinks that colleges are turning out students on the assembly line these days! In an entirely different vein, one lady called the other day, was transferred to Thorne Hall and then to the Student Union. She told the operator that ...

IWIT'J £MD [Newspaper Article] — Occidental — 17 April 1953
IWIT'J £MD BY ADAMS &amp; DENNISTON Greetings from TEXAS, Oxyites, How are things in sunny, smog-bound California? Perhaps you are wondering how come the sparkling journalistic duo of Adams and Dennistoun happens to be corresponding to you from practically another nation. . . . Well, after reading a slanderous article in last week’s Occidental about one member of this combine, we found it advisable to remove ourselves from the immediate vicinity before we did acute bodily harm to one Jim Gruber. The one written about was mad because of what was said about her, while the other one was irritated because her name wasn’t mentioned. Only news on the pinnings, engagements, marriages and babies front comes from the Zeta House where Joyce Baldwin announced the arrival of . . . no, not a baby . . . but a diamond from Jack Butcher which signifies their engagement. Congratulations to both of them!!! We hear that it is now election time at Occidental; "and from our hideout deep in the h...
