IWITN? £f*D [Newspaper Article] — Occidental — 15 May 1953
IWITN? £f*D gy APAMS P&amp;H^^TCiN Greetings fellow intellectuals: It is said that in spring a young man's fancy turns to thoughts of love. Obviously, the young man immortally coined in this phrase is not being nurtured within Oxy walls. We find it difficult here to find a man with a fancy, much less a THOUGHT of love. If you do see a student wandering around dreamily with stars in his eyes, it can usually be attributed directly to violent benzedrine or no-doz reactions. However, from this addicted haze the little backwards skirmish known colloquially as Pan-Hell. To the surprise of no one, the function was well attended, so with out more ado we will give you the rest of the column in names. Those omitted can get together and write a Tiger Growl under the direction of John Utzinger. Attending were; Janie Magnuson, Don Fulton; Lynn Helm, Pete Peterson: Janet Maurer, Chuck Bradley; Jo Engle, Pat Delane3'; Diane Sumner, Jim Delaney; Ann Garner, Sandy Moyes; Arlene Franck, Lane ...
Pto-tyectuty [Newspaper Article] — Occidental — 15 May 1953
Pto-tyectuty By Joan Davis With real literary achievements published in the paper today, it seems presumptuous of me even to write this column. but Mother wil be disappointed if I don't, so here goes. The student body may not be aware of this, but here’s our chance. Chance for what? Our chance to cut up, talk about people, complain,, loot the ASOC office, or general do what we wish. The reason for this Roman holiday is that Red and Romey, Bruce and Jane are having the time of their lives in Arizona this week at a big conference of western colleges. Anyway, if they can take off from school work, classes and worries about exams, why should we worry? They’ll be back Sunday, however, so if you’d like to pretend you’re the big wheel around here, go sit at the president’s desk for awhile, but be out of there by Monday morning, or you may have someone in your lap. (This is your chance, girls). Speaking of wheels. Miss Smithies made a remark the other week in her lovely welcoming speech at ...

Pomona Depth Too Strong as Oxy Bows 68-5/ [Newspaper Article] — Occidental — 15 May 1953
Pomona Depth Too Strong as Oxy Bows 68-5/ COLISEUM BOUND By HANK DICKSON Nine Bengal swimmers came back from the All-Conference Meet at Pomona last Saturday sporting medals although the mermen bowed to a potent Sagehen aggregation 57-68. The All-Conference Meet, although it does not affect the dual-meet standings, almost always puts a stirring finsh on the swim season, and this year’s meet was no exception. Seymour Beek, flashy Pomona sprinter, and Fred "The Fish” Kroesche, steady Tiger distance swimmer, were the double winners of the day. Beek won the 50 and 100 yard free style events, while Kroesche copped the 220 and 440 and established two pool records. In the 440, Kroesche’s perennial foe, Eric Scott from Whittier, took an early lead, but was later forced to bow to the smoothly paced Bengal. Scott has been trying to outdo Kroesche for the past six years, their competition going back to high school days. Undefeated Relay Dick Norman anchored an undefeated medley relay team and c...

Bengals to Get Relay Calls; Trek to Modesto Saturday [Newspaper Article] — Occidental — 15 May 1953
Bengals to Get Relay Calls; Trek to Modesto Saturday By BERT WOODRUFF Tonight, the growl of the rampaging Bengal will reverberate through the vast expanse of the Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum as the Oxy thinclads take part in the annual Coliseum Relays. Some of the best cindermen in the United States will participate in this gigantic trackfest which may see three world marks fall. Last week at Fresno, a giant from Southern California by the name of Parry O’Brien broke the world’s shot put mark by heaving the ponderous pellet 59 ft. % in. Tonight, Parry may break his own unofficial mark and also stands a good chance of cracking the mythical barrier of 60 feet, which would make him a track and field immortal. World's Greatest A special relay foursome of Andy Stanfield, Herb McKinley, George Rhoden and Mai Whitfield will run under the banner of the Grand Street Boys in a special attempt to crack the world’s mile relay mark. Whitfield will repeat later on in the 880 in what could also r...
Two-Mile Relay Team Places Third at Fresno [Newspaper Article] — Occidental — 15 May 1953
Two-Mile Relay Team Places Third at Fresno Payton Jordan’s speedy little clan of thinelads trekked up to the Raisin City last Saturday night to compete alongside the major track and field juggernauts of the United States In the annual Fresno Relays. Although the Bengals failed to walk off with any blue ribbons, they still gave a good account of themselves. Jim Terrill, Paul Southgate, Ev Trader and Don Munroe ran their hearts out only to wind up third behind California and San Diego State in the twomile relay. The Bears were clocked in the fine time of 7:42.4. Muscle Pulled In the mile relay, the Tiger foursome ran into some bad luck when Phil Fresher came up with a cramped muscle on the first leg. Oxy was never in the race after Phil’s injury. The Tigers were 25 yards behind the pack when Presber passed off the baton to Norton. Norton, Schmitt and Speer all ran very well and held their own for the remaining 1320. In fact, the Tigers made up five yards, good enough for fifth place i...
CONTEST WINNERS PUBLISHED At the Cate A Personal Incident in Korea that Helped its Writer Earn Ist Prize in the Forest Lawn Journalism Awards [Newspaper Article] — Occidental — 15 May 1953
CONTEST WINNERS PUBLISHED At the Cate A Personal Incident in Korea that Helped its Writer Earn Ist Prize in the Forest Lawn Journalism Awards BY BILL SMITH It happened one cold January night during the second winter in Korea. We were stationed at a rear area installation called ASCOM City. In the days before World War II ASCOM City had been a Japanese aircraft factory. Now it was a huge pile of junk. I was on guard that night, and for once I was lucky. I’d drawn the best post in the compound—the front gate. As I stared out the window of the hut, I was aware of strange noises and strange movements. The world was alive with people. I could hear the voices of a dozen homeless boys out in the darkness. Clever, ingenious kids, with warm smiles and frost-bitten hands, who live in the bombed-out ruins and steal to keep alive. The American GI makes no pretense of understanding the strange workings of the Oriental mind. But he can understand these shoeshine boys, and he likes them. To him th...
Winner’s Privilege A Personality Sketch from Miss Hansen’s ' Helsinki Trip that Helped Her Win 2nd Place [Newspaper Article] — Occidental — 15 May 1953
Winner’s Privilege A Personality Sketch from Miss Hansen’s ' Helsinki Trip that Helped Her Win 2nd Place BY LEE HANSEN “An Olympian and son of a former Olympian!” “NEVER been beaten in the 400 meter or 440 yard hurdles!” “One of the three greatest in history!” These were the rumors that heralded the entrance of USA’s Charlie Moore, 400 meter hurdle competitor, into the XVth Olympiad. As he showed his superb form, the rumors grew. “They say he takes only ELEVEN steps between each of his first seven hurdles,” was bantered around in the Russian dressing room. Perhaps someone was pulling their leg, but Charlie proved his skill as he took thirteen instead of the customary fifteen steps between each of his first seven hurdles and in doing so won his first Olympic heat. His luck held and Charlie Moore never was beaten as he tied the Olympic record of 50.8 seconds and walked proudly up to the platform to receive his gold medal. Charles Hewe Moore—a legend and an Olympic champion! The pressu...
