Cotton Clobberers to Ploy Whittier, LA State Netmen [Newspaper Article] — Occidental — 1 May 1953
Cotton Clobberers to Ploy Whittier, LA State Netmen By CHUCK HAMMOND Oxy’s tennis team will attempt to halt a twelve match losing streak this afternoon when they meet the Whittier Poets on the Campus Road courts. There is a real possibility that the Tigers can come through this time. Their last tussel with the Quakers saw them lose the match on several close games by a final score of 6-3. If the right men come through in the clutch, the match may see the Bengals break the jinx that has plagued them through most of the season. LA State Next Next Monday the cotton clobberers will take on a strong team from LA State. From all reports the Staters are a very powerful club, so it will probably take quite an upset to bring the Tigers out on top. Next week will see the conference prelimniary qualifying rounds get underway. Entering the singles competition for Oxy are Dick Martin and Dick Holmes. Mike Macready and Dick Hoskins will get the nod in the doubles prelims. May Surprise The Bengals...

Hens Edge Oxy; Take Top Spot In Close Meet [Newspaper Article] — Occidental — 1 May 1953
Hens Edge Oxy; Take Top Spot In Close Meet By HANK DICKSON Although they saw the Conference Dual Meet Championship slip through their fingers at the Pomona pool last Friday, Oxy’s undaunted swimmers will be out to dunk the Sagehens in the final event of the season, the All-Conference Meet, in Pomona’s pond May 7 and 9. Oxy lost their only dual meet of the season, 46-38, in a contest that was much closer than the score indicates. Although slated as heavy favorites, the Hens found the impudent Tigers surging ahead time and again as the iead changed hands five times before a howling partisan throngof some 300 students. The AlDConference Meet, which is scored quite differently from a dual meet, could prove very interesting next week. The Tigers have a good, though outside, chance of edging the Hens in this one. Undefeated Medley The Tiger medley relay team, undefeated in league competition, tripped the Pomona men. by a whole length last week. Charlie Miller, Dick Norman and Tom Mitchell...

Fred Johnson, Sports Follower, Succumbs at 69 Many members of the college family were saddened this week by news of the death of Fred Johnson, 69, who suffered a heart attack at his home Tuesday evening.

A Life Pass holder, he was an ardent supporter of all college athletics, and could be seen at all track meets and football practices and games.
Tough Injuns MATHIAS LEADS TRIBE TO WIN [Newspaper Article] — Occidental — 1 May 1953
Tough Injuns MATHIAS LEADS TRIBE TO WIN Led by their Olympian decathlon champion, Bob Mathias, who scored 16 points, the Stanford Indians proved too much for Payton Jordan’s fighting Tigers last Saturday as they rolled to a 92 2-3 to 37 1-3 victory at Palo Alto. Oxy’s Claude Fiddler, Don Munroe and Bill Bennett led the attack for the losers as they scored impressive wins in the two-mile and 880-yard runs, and broadjump, respectively. Fiddler, who has shown amazing improvement with every outing, simply ran away from Indian Bob Simon, who was favored to defeat the Bengal ace. But Fiddler, who has not been defeated in dual competition this season, simply would not be had. Simon, w'ho was regarded as one of the top distance men on the West Coast, forgot that Fiddler had the fourth best time in the nation this year. And Fiddler showed the Stanfordites why he was in the number four spot as he won by 80 yards going away. Fiddler’s winning time was a fast 9:33.9. Bengal Ace Emmeriing took t...
Westmont Next For Tiger Nine [Newspaper Article] — Occidental — 1 May 1953
Westmont Next For Tiger Nine Occidental’s horsehide crew travels up the coast to Santa Barbara Saturday after+ioon to tangle with the power-laden Westmont mine. Either Russ Groat or Frank Bennett will get the go-ahead sign from Coach Bill Anderson to take the moun&gt;d against the powerful Warriors. Last Wednesday, in an abbreviated rain-splattered sixinning fray, the Tigers were defeated 8-3 by a visiting LA State crew. The Devils jumped off tc a fast three run lead in the first frame and were never headed by the Tigers. Only three hits rattled of the silent bats of the home-town boys all afternoon. Meanwhile, the Devils were only garnering four singles. But they were aided by the wildness of two Tiger hurlers, Dick Dreher and Russ Groat. Dreher, as wild as the March winds in April, issued seven free passes in his two inning stint on the mound. Groat, who relieved Dreher in the third, walked five Poet batters during the chilly afternoon.
r Congrats to Smith and Hansen [Newspaper Article] — Occidental — 1 May 1953
r Congrats to Smith and Hansen We would like to add our congratulations to the many bestowed this week on Bill Smith and Miss Lee Hansen for the brilliant way they came through in the Forest Lawn Journalism Awards contest. For the first time in the history of the contest, finalists from the same school won the two top awards, and in a year when the entries were considered “the best yet.” Besides winning handsome cash prizes for themselves, these two won $5OOO for their college. This is a contribution the size of which many of us may never be able to equal in a lifetime. Perhaps what is more important is the reflection on the job our faculty and curriculum has been doing. For if selfexpression is the key to leadership, we may rest assured that Occidental is doing her part In preparing the leaders of tomorrow.
Religion Under Fire Again [Newspaper Article] — Occidental — 1 May 1953
Religion Under Fire Again TIGER GROWLS To Laurence Collins: Mr. Collins undoubtedly harbored legitimate resentment against “15 weeks of chaos and disorganization.” It seems only fair that now the issue is brought up that a more dispassionate critique of the subject be presented. First oi an, in such an assault upon an individual’s integrity and professional ability, he should be honest or straightforward enough to specifically name the indicated person. It is too much to ask the reader to “guess who.” These are the reprehensible tactics of a smear-artist and demand prompt criticism. The ills of this course are obvious. Specific charges against specific individuals are requisite to justice. I was also In this course; certain references solve the mystery for me. Why be so secretive, Laurence. Is it not Dr. Margery Freeman to whom you so irresponsibly allude? Certain of your criticisms do not fare well under close scrutiny. In the first place, your diatribe allows no credit for good In...
Reinforcements [Newspaper Article] — Occidental — 1 May 1953
Reinforcements To Lawrence Collins: Regarding your letter in the paper last week—we disagree! As students now taking Religion 1 from Drs. Freeman and Lake, we feel that the letter was written by a bitter student who obviously was very biased himself. In your claims that the religion course is “chaotic and disorganized” and concerned with “minute detail,” we feel that if you had approached the assignments with any other than a chaotic and disorganized viewpoint, you would have realized that the “minute detail” (as you termed it) was important background for understanding the “obsolete Old Testament.” In regard to the syllabus, Dr. Freeman was merely revising it to meet class needs and now a new edition has been printed. We believe that the professors do not force their individual viewpoints upon the class, in fact they encourage the reading of collateral which presents additional points of view. We would enjoy discussing this matter with you. We have requested that our names be withh...
And Another [Newspaper Article] — Occidental — 1 May 1953
And Another It must now be clear to Dr. Freeman that she is not pedagogical perfection. Being somewhat of an optimist, I doubt if she ever thought she was. It is also abundantly clear to most of this college that there are students here who lack qualities of the ideal student— receptivity and good faith. Personally, I’m getting used to my feet of clay. Robert Hansen
Hey, You All! [Newspaper Article] — Occidental — 1 May 1953
Hey, You All! Those who attended Mr. James’ lecture on “Moby-Dick” in Thorne Hall last spring will recognize in his new book an extension of the idea of prophecy in Melville’s later writing. Ahab, the daemonic protagonist of “Moby-Dick” is seen as a model of the present-day totalitarian personality—the personality that James calls “the most dangerous and destructive social type that has yet appeared In Western- civilization” the complete individual who will sacrifice everyone and everything around him for purposes of self-interest. Although the author’s experiences while detained at Ellis Island under the McCarren Act may have so colored the book as to make it not truly authoritative, “Mariners, Renegades and Castaways” is a provocative addition to the existing body of Melville interpretation. It is an interesting personal analysis and as such, is worth its modest price. Copies may be had at the ASOC bookstore or by writing C. L. R. James, 11«B B"'"- I—, 1 —, ' T - ■ "
THIS I BELIEVE [Newspaper Article] — Occidental — 1 May 1953
THIS I BELIEVE By HOWARD SWAN Professor of Music I believe in God. Because I have seen evidences of His power manifest in many lives I have faith in His will for my own living. I believe that Jesus Christ, God and man, revealed to his contemporaries and to those of succeeding generations a perfect life of self-sacrifice, love and understanding of one's fellow man. I believe that mankind has time and again demonstrated the inability either to group the fundamental teachings of Jesus or to put them into practice. “We behold His Glory”; yet we constantly fall short of attaining it. The forgiveness and pardon of a loving Father shown to His repentant children is very necessary for my belief. I believe in the Church. While I would agree that a man can worship God at any time and in any place, his worship will mean more if it takes place in the midst of a company of believers. Furthermore, whereas the efforts of one man to carry out the teachings of Jesus in a practical way may result in ...
Dorm's Hazards Provide Chilis, Thrills 'n Spills [Newspaper Article] — Occidental — 1 May 1953
Dorm's Hazards Provide Chilis, Thrills 'n Spills By JANICE DEAN A cold blue light, a row of doors just alike, then . . . “COMING!” The cry resounds with the crash of a slammed door as a frantic soul flees from her inner sanctum toward contact with reality, a telephone conversation. “Aha!” Some friends decide it’s time to have some fun. The horde moves in. They look around; their eyes gleam. “The dresser?” A nod. “The bed?” Another affirmative. Back she comes. “Hide!” Slam! Slam! Slam! All down the hall the retreat sounds. It’s quiet again, like when a bothersome faucet has been turned oft, giving a slicing feel to the silence. She turns the knob and her hand slips around. “GREASE!” (The word fits the feel.) As the door swings open, down comes a wet rag onto a lobsterish face. “Where is that light?” Tangles of string all across the room, “What’s up here?” No one to answer. She opens a drawer to put away a scarf. PLOMFF! Out comes everything from an upside down drawer. “Pain! Oh sob!”...
Rick's Rules Set Up Cool Music Guides [Newspaper Article] — Occidental — 1 May 1953
Rick's Rules Set Up Cool Music Guides By RICHARD NORTON In case you read this column last week you may have wondered just what rule it was that Bill Priestly’s excellent recital was an exception to (make sense?). Here’s the answer: Rule No. 3, as below. Bill has the good taste which is so often lacking in choral conductors. The reason why last week’s column read as it did was that there was a lack of space in the paper. So, the rest of this column is what was planned to be part of last week’s. Recently It seems that editors and columnists have taken to enumerating sets of principles which they follow. Well, this writer is going to tag along. As John Utzinger once remarked, a column of this type is necessarily subjective, so you might as well know the prejudices and vices to which you will be subjected if you continue to read it. Of course, it is always interesting to speculate on how many people read this, why they read it, whether the writer’s original intent is put across, etc. Bu...
BOX ONE [Newspaper Article] — Occidental — 1 May 1953
BOX ONE By Rusty Lynch Will the Student Exchange Drive reach its goal today? It can, as it has in other years. Three times a year we are asked to give money. Twice, for Tigar Chest and WSSF, we give to causes that affect us little personally. Only once do we actually experience the results of our giving—and Student Exchange is that ondfe. What are we getting for our money when we give to Student Exchange? We are getting a valuable experience in international living. By now it is a truism that international frictions are the result of misunderstanding. foreign ways and customs. Student Exchanges throughout the world have been hailed as one of the greatest moves toward world peace. Here is an ideal chance for us to actually do one small but significant act. We will understand other countries better as we live with our exchange student. Now a word about how it works. The money we give now will provide room, board and tuition to the visiting student. His college will do the same in retu...
Faux Pas [Newspaper Article] — Occidental — 1 May 1953
Faux Pas By MING AND UTZINGEH Last week William Shakespeare had one of his frequent if sporadic struggles with an amateur group of players, but this time, surprisingly enough, Shapespeare did not come off second best. He shone through at times with brilliance in spite of the many obsticles placed in his way by technical crews, bit players and others. Since many of these incidents were unavoidable, and since many of them were ironed out of the production by the time of the second performance, it may be the wisest policy to treat them gently. “Much Ado About Nothing,” whose title indicates Shapespeare’s attitude toward it, is, according to G. B. Shaw, an avowed money maker. It purports to do nothing more than please the fancy and entertain the audience, which is what it did in the able hands of director LaNor Lombard and the members of her cast. Shakespeare’s intricate dialogue as handled by such old standbys as Dee Sharpe, Bill McKenzie, Darryl Guy and Jim Warner was sharp, fast and ...
THIS TIME [Newspaper Article] — Occidental — 1 May 1953
THIS TIME TSV 6frV)o£.^ With Mother’s Day only nine days off, I felt a small but definite urge to make some pertinent comments. Although some may disagree, I feel strongly that a certain amount of -motherhood is here to stay. With this in jnind, and being a product of that institution myself, I will not drop the lead balloon that my comments go over like. M—is for mother. Ah! Mother! Gem among cinders —or something. Sweet little old mother of mine! I want a girl just like, etc. Anyway, M is for mother. 0 — is for the other things that I want to say now that I’ve given motherhood its little blurb. By the way, O is also for Ogglethorpe. (He’s been wanting me to print his name.) T—is for the terrifi, time I’ve had since I’ve left home. And also for the ten bucks that mom sent me last week. H—is for the horrible habit that so many people have fallen into—watching television. I predict that it will never replace motherhood. E—is for Eisenhower and Nixon —they won the election you know. A...
