★ Plaudits to ASOC Candidates [Newspaper Article] — Occidental — 8 May 1953
★ Plaudits to ASOC Candidates Last week we happened to travel down to the campus of the University of Southern California. We were interested to find them in the midst of conducting their student body and class elections, much the same as we do here. But it wasn’t quite like we do at Oxy. We found the campus littered with abundant campaign literature. Newly painted walls were plastered everywhere with posters, applied with hard-to-remove cellophane tape. During the past weeks we have been following the course of the campaigns in the Daily Trojan. We couldn’t help but notice the amount of political advertising carried in the paper, or the hollow political issues stirred up to get publicity on the news pages. Looking back at our recent ASOC elections, we wolud like to commend the candidates for the high level on which all campaigns were conducted. Not only did they act in a manner befitting college students, but got through the elections without defacing or disgracing their college an...
BOX ONE [Newspaper Article] — Occidental — 8 May 1953
BOX ONE By STEVE SALSBURY ASOC Forensics Representative As forensics representative to this year’s council, I would like to take this opportunity to give forensics a plug. When I first came to Occidental four years ago I was startled to find that 987. of the students did not even know that Occidental had any forensics activities. Worse yet. Occidental had a reputation among “debaters who knew" for being a forensics doormat. USC and Pepperdine. traditionally strong in debate, refused to take Occidental as stiff competition, and promising young high school debaters were discouraged from attendWlf Oxy because of the lack of forensics opportunity here. This was not because Oxy hadn't had good teams In the past, for only the year before an Oxy duo of Knox and Mosier had had a very respectable national record In debates, but Oxy's general reputation was poor. During the past four years, under the guidance of our hardworking coach. Dr. Norman Freestone, Oxy’s prestiege has risen to where w...
Bledsoe Rates Hefti n Kenton As Really Cool [Newspaper Article] — Occidental — 8 May 1953
Bledsoe Rates Hefti n Kenton As Really Cool By Richard Norton Here's another blindfold test, and Bob Bledsoe Is the victim this time. Bob was given no Information about the records he heard. Five is execellent; four, very good; three, good; two, fair; and one, poor (in rating), 1. "March" from Kodaly’s "Hary Janos" (Eugene Ormandy). “I like the brassy introduction. It sounds quite contemporary—has a saxophone in it. It seems to convey the idea of US industrialization, It has the aspects of factory noise, but the quiet elements suggest evening leisure time. —On second thought it suggests a battle more. I like that type of music, but because It’s instrumental, four stars.” 2. "Rock Skipping at the Blue Note" (Duke Ellington)—good trombone section, but I don’t feel he’s expressing anything—typical popular—no actual depiction or conveyance. At least it’s not bound up with a vocalist. Two-stars.” 3. Poulenc’s "Songs lor Children" (Oxy Women’s Glee Club). “What Is this? It sounds so famil...
Cadets Eat Better, Tigers Talk More [Newspaper Article] — Occidental — 8 May 1953
Cadets Eat Better, Tigers Talk More By STEVE SALSBURY Editor's Note: The following article is an account of the experiences of Steve Salsbury and Joe Wise while they were at the National Collegiate Debate Tournament at West Point, New York, last month. We arrived at West Point at 5:30 p.m. after an hour and a half train ride up the Hudson River from New York City. Our first view of the Point came after an Army car came down to meet us at the station and drove us up to the central campus located on a high bluff about 300 feet above the railroad station and the river. We were not to set foot off the campus for four full days. The average student at the United States Military Academy lives a tough life by Occidental standards. Our first official act at the Point was to eat dinner. This gave us an excellent chance to compare the Oxy dinner with the military dinner. The Union dinner I need not describe, but the West Point way provides an excellent contrast. Promptly at 6:00 p.m. (18:00 i...

Library Shows Tiger's Exhibit Of R. R.'s Books [Newspaper Article] — Occidental — 8 May 1953
Library Shows Tiger's Exhibit Of R. R.'s Books By Elsie Foreman Been to the library lately? If so, you’ve probably seen Steve Salsbury’s Transportation Collection which is on exhibit there. In his collection of several thousand books and pamphlets, Steve has many that are now out of print and consequently rare. He has books that date from 1870 from Australia, England and Canada and timetables from as far back as 1905. Possessing one of the few comparatively complete collections in the United States, Steve is a specialist in Electric Railroads. He tries to get one copy of everything printed on them here and abroad and has complete files of major journals that deal with electric railways in both the United States and Australia. An interesting sidelight to his hobby is that has ridden on most of the street railway systems in the United States at one time or another. He has both slides and movies illustrating his travels. Steve plans someday to index his collection and catalogue it. His...
OXY DORM IS CELEBRITY – [Newspaper Article] — Occidental — 8 May 1953
OXY DORM IS CELEBRITY - By ELSIE FOREMAN We of Occidental have a celebrity on campus-of at least we will when our new men’s dorm, Stewart-Cleland Memorial Residence Hall, is completed. This building is probably the first dormitory ever constructed to use the latest in pre-cast building techniques. Just what does this highpowered phrase entail? To find the answer to this question I sought out the woman who knows, Miss Janet Hoyt, Oxy residence chairman. Now here’s the straight dope. Most buildings are constructed using monolithic technique. This means that all the concrete for walls is poured into forms erected right on the spot. The basement of the new dormitory is constructed in this fashion. Walls for the remainder of this building will be pre-cast from a limited number of forms and then lifted into place by cranes. The architectural design for a building constructed in this fashion must be simple and uniform. The trick is to develop as many similar units as possible, thus cutting...
