'P'KMbcctiny [Newspaper Article] — Occidental — 24 April 1953
'P'KMbcctiny By Joan Davis In the post in this column I've talked about big weeks, but this week, without a singled doubt is THE BIG WEEK of the semestei—perhaps the whole year. Just a short run-down of the activities—Hell Week for sororities, track meet. Senior Ditch Day, speeches and elections for all offices, Shakespeare Festival and Hell Night, fraternity dances, and lots of other things that I Just can't think of at the moment. If you don't participate in anything else, reader, please VOTE TODAY. If every year we strive for record, some day we may achieve complete student body cooperation. Anyway, it's something to try for. Several small incidents came up this week which bear mentioning—at least for the sake of amusement. Best one of all was the Incident concerning parking violations on campus. As everyone knows, It is best to follow the directions which say “Do not park beyond this sign” at the top of Alumni Avenue, near Swan Hall. Not long ago, a certain car parked beyond thi...

Oxy Frosh Favored To Cop Finals Today Claremont to Host Frosh Finals Today; Eight Conference Records in Danger [Newspaper Article] — Occidental — 24 April 1953
Oxy Frosh Favored To Cop Finals Today Claremont to Host Frosh Finals Today; Eight Conference Records in Danger Coach Dick Wells’ high-flying and unbeaten frosh npikesters journey to Pomona-Claremont this afternoon to tackle the rest of the SCIC schools in the All-Con-ference finals at 2:30 p.m. A trio of All-Conference records in the field events are going to get a severe test before the afternoon’s festivities are concluded. While the stareluded list of performers in the races are capable of knocking off five meet records, the performers inside the cinder oval are apt to steal the show. Probably the shot put competitors have the best chance to ium the trick, but there is no assurance that the discus and pole vault marks are beyond the reach of this fancy array of yearlings. Meyer in Shot Tom Meyer, the powerful blond Eagle Rockian, Is the standout favorite to win here. Meyer should easily surpass the meet record of 43 ft, 7 in. set by Bengal Dan Oleson in 3949. Tom has already put ...

Featured are some clever composite pictures, one part taken at Oxy, the other at Stanford.
Pomona Meet to Determine Swim Champs tor '53 [Newspaper Article] — Occidental — 24 April 1953
Pomona Meet to Determine Swim Champs tor '53 By HANK DICKSON Having dunked Caltech 4440 last Friday, the Bengal swimmers will journey to Claremont this afternoon to take on the Pomona Sagthens in what will determine the dual-meet championship of 1953. Despite their early-season win over the Hens in the Conference Relays, the Tigers will find plenty tough sledding in the Pomona pond today. Kroesche Cinch Fred Kroesche is slated to win the 220 and 440 yard free style events, while Bob Dreibelbis and Joe Webber are leadpipe cinches in the diving. After that, though, it’s anybody’s meet. One of the day’s closest races will find Jim Ensign pitted against Pomona’s Bob Reedman in the individual medley. Ensign edged Reedman by one foot in the Relays. Tough in Sprints Sprinters Tom Hormel and Tom Mitchell will find themselves up against two of the conference’s fastest, Doug Fletcher and Barclay Noble. However, they may be able to surprise. Dick Norman and Brownie Parker will go for Oxy in th...
INDIANS WAITING TO TANGLE WITH TIGERS Fiddler-Reed Duel Heads Thrilling Card of Races [Newspaper Article] — Occidental — 24 April 1953
INDIANS WAITING TO TANGLE WITH TIGERS Fiddler-Reed Duel Heads Thrilling Card of Races By BERT WOODRUFF Tomorrow afternoon the Tiger Claw takes on the Indian Tomahawk in a nationally publicized trackfest at Palo Alto. Unfortunately for the occupants of Tigerville, the Bengals figure to get clubbed in the final scoring by Stanford, but the Tiger scanty-clads will still give the Indians a tussle for blue-ribbon honors. One of the really close races of the day should be in the two mile run when Bengal Claude Fiddler, sporting a best time of 9:32.7, tangles with Stanford elather-lunger Reed, with a top effort of 9:35.9. On the basis of his recent improvement, Fiddler rates the favorite to carry the Black and Gold to victory. The other distance events seem to be Indian specialities with Stanford’s Simon rating the favorite in both th mile and 880, although he will son form, could add a few points. The shot put will give spec-: tators a chance to see Olympic Decathlon Champion Bob Mathias ...

Linkmen in Riverside for So. Cal. Meet; Clip Tech [Newspaper Article] — Occidental — 24 April 1953
Linkmen in Riverside for So. Cal. Meet; Clip Tech Oxy’s golf team participated in three shellackings over the last week. The first two found the Oxymen on top, but the third was their turn to be on the short end of things. Last Friday, Oxy murdered Caltech and Santa Barbara in a triangular meet at Oakmont. Tech proved to be only slightly belter than the Guachos: Oxy 26, Caltech 10, and Oxy 30, Santa Barbara 6. John Gaines sparked the team to victory with a 75. Tuesday the Tigers traveled to Wilshire Country Club to meet the mighty SC Trojans. This match proved to be a real disaster. John Argue and Gaines managed to win 5 points between them, while the rest of the team was blanked completely. Argue’s 77 over the soggy layout led the Bengals. SC played near their best potential and were definitely out of Oxy’s class. Their depth and experience told the difference. Today the team is playing in the Southern California Intercollegiate Golf Tournament at Diverside. This is a 36 hole medal...

Bitter Rivalry!! Poets-Tigers Meet In Horsehide Tussle Occidental’s horsehiders and the Whittier Poets come to blows this afternoon when they collide head-on at 3 p.m. on the Tiger baseball diamond. This fray promises to be no kind of a "gentlemen Jim” tilt, but dopes to be one of the most bitterly-fought frays of the 1953 horsehide campaign. These two clubs simply do not get along with each other, and they know it! No holds will be barred in this encounter which will go a long way to decide the SCIC pennant winner. Hurlars Ready Coach Bill Anderson has both his ace mound hurlers ready and rarin’ for today’s crucial tilt. Either southpaw Dick Dreher (5-0) or right-hander Russ Groat (3-1) will draw the starting ' assignment against the treacherous Poets. Bill Powell or Dick Ferguson will wheel and deal for Whittier. The Tigers are in the best possible condition they could be in, but they still need student support. So let’s see a grand turnout this afternoon when the Tigers seek thei...

Tennis Trio Ready For Eliminations b y Chuck Hamond Three recent losses at the hands of Pepperdine, Pomona and Caltech have been the fate of the Tiger tennis team.

One week from tomorrow the league eliminations will begin. Dick Martin and Dick Holmes in the singles and Martin and Ted Pettit in the doubles are Oxy’s best hopes, according to Team Manager Ray Taylor.
Relay Stops Tigers' Bid For Victory [Newspaper Article] — Occidental — 24 April 1953
Relay Stops Tigers' Bid For Victory Two fine teams, the battling Bulldogs from Fresno and the terrifying Tigers from Occidental, locked horns in' a real thriller on Patterson Field last Saturday evening. The exciting contest found the Fresno contingent nipping the Bengals at the wire, 70-61. It marked the second spinetingling meet witnessed by Oxy track enthusiasts within a 7-day period. For only the week before, Oxy’s spiirted frosh team knocked off the highlytouted USC Trojans, 63-63. ■ Reloy Decides Meet And as in the freshman meet, the mile relay proved to be the decider. But the shoe was on the other foot as the Bulldogs, led by their great Olympian, Les Laing, squeaked out an upset win over the favored Bengal foursome of Chuck Miller, Rel Schmitt, Gill McFadden and Brayton Norton. Although one team had to lose, for sheer closeness plus greatness of competition the trackfest really could not have been more exciting. Every field event and running race wag something to behold. No...
Dick Lundy, From Cairo, Gives Dope on Exchange [Newspaper Article] — Occidental — 24 April 1953
Dick Lundy, From Cairo, Gives Dope on Exchange When I woke up to the fact that the year is almost gone I felt that a letter might help someone in deciding to apply to be next year’s exchange student. How is one to write of the year’s experiences? If I say that it has been the most profitable year I have spent or that I wouldn’t trade it for anything it may not mean much to anyone else. Maybe I can seek to analyze the- experience. Egypt presents many wonderful aspects to the foreigner. Here I have been able to visit the - greatest ruins of the world. I have spent hours in temples built by a mighty civilization 3000 years ago. I spend my Saturday mornings in the museum across the Midan from the school, soaking in some of the spirit and glory of the Pharaohs. Here in Egypt I am a member of a religious minority. I have had first-hand experience with another great living faith. In so doing I have learned much about my own faith. With Islam comes a whole new culture and social structure. ...
TIGER GROWLS [Newspaper Article] — Occidental — 24 April 1953
TIGER GROWLS This Is Tiger ROARI How long are the students at Occidental going to put up with the Biblical literature course as taught in certain of our classrooms? There seems to be an important question In my mind, now that I have completed the course; Does the administration realize that at least one of our teachers is putting forth an indoctrination course in which the student is given a one-sided view of the picture and then graded on his acceptance or rejection of it? Whenever a teacher gives an entire semester of ideas and beliefs on any controversial subject, such as religion, it should be stated that the views are only those of one group of people. This Was not the case. Facts were given in such a way as to make it absolutely clear that the teacher expected only one conclusion. I was told that if I had really understood the “historical approach” to the Bible I would never have arrived at my final conclusions. I should like to know if there is any set "historical approach." ...
THIS I BELIEVE [Newspaper Article] — Occidental — 24 April 1953
THIS I BELIEVE Editor's Note: These are the first in a series of articles in which members of the will state their beliefs. By DR. BEN GULLEY, Dean of Men In the words of a well known religionist, “God creates! His essence is his creativity.” This I believe without question. I do not believe that the church is the only institution that serves His will—“at any moment that his spirit works in a school, or in a home, or in a political or economic organization, it is holy ground, it is God’s house.” We are all born as individuals, and the degree to which each individual learns his capacities and abilities and follows out those interests and activities which are consonant with these capacities to this end does he achieve selfhood. This, I believe, is God’s design for all of us. While each of us embraces somij of God’s personality, since he reveals himself best in persons—no one can encompass his full personality. To the extent that we are Christians we believe that the whole of God was r...
THIS TIME BY GRUBER [Newspaper Article] — Occidental — 24 April 1953
THIS TIME BY GRUBER BY GRUBER Things have happened to me since I talked to you last. The most significant of them—fox’ you out there—is that I have done a little thinking. As a matter of fact, I’ve done a good deal of thinking. I can’t put it all in this column; you wouldn’t believe half of it anyhow. But let me have a try at typewriter meditation. Thinkmg is a wonderful thing. Ever stop to think how important it is that you are able to think? One incident starts most people thinking: birth. But not me. I need continual provocative situations. That means, I have to be coaxed into it. For me, just knowing that somebody is being knocked on the head doesn’t make the pain real. But if mine were the head that were dented. I wouldn’t just get a bump. It would make me think. It’s more fun to think than get a bump. And more constructure too. Last week I got a bump on the head—internally. That is, something struck me. And it started me thinking. It all began as a fairly ordinary situation. I...
BOX ONE [Newspaper Article] — Occidental — 24 April 1953
BOX ONE By Romay Ufholtz It occurred to me that you, the students of Occidental, should know something of the various ways in which your student body officers distribute the ASOC fee you pay. Many groups approach the ASOC council in search for funds. A serious responsibility rests on the council in selecting those endeavors which will best represent Occidental College and its’ student body. Sponsoring the “Books for Freedom Drive” is a function of the ASOC which will have long-lasting results in acquainting our world neighborhood with the United States through its popular literature. Stanford was host to a convention on International Relations, and when Occidental was invited to send three delegates your student council voted to make available half of the money necessary to make the trip. This month ten Oxy students were sent to Berkeley for a United Nations Conference. These students were able to attend with a 50 dollar allocation from the Associated Students’ budget. Our student d...
British Critic Says Jazz Is Very 'High1 [Newspaper Article] — Occidental — 24 April 1953
British Critic Says Jazz Is Very 'High 1 By RICHARD NORTON For the column this week, here’s a quote from an unknown writer in the English Jazz Journal who was in turn was quoted in Down Beat: “Jazz music has been around quite some time now, long enough to have achieved some sort of artistic standing, and for the musician to have acquired a certain amount of dignity that goes with achievement. One would wish that jazz critics and criticism had reached as high an artistic and literary standard as the music itself.” "Even at its best, the literature of jazz is subject to the faults of romanticism, exaggeration, and pre-occupation with either the immediate present or the distant past. At its worst, jazz writing has reached such banal and euphuistic (Oxford for phony) extremes as to make one doubt completely the abil- ity and knowledge of the writers.” To every rule (including personally derived ones, as above) there are exceptions. And Bill Priestly did an exceptional job in shaping a c...
