“'And Thereby Hangs a Tale” Shakespeare Dingley’s Dollar [Newspaper Article] — Occidental — 15 May 1953
“'And Thereby Hangs a Tale” Shakespeare Dingley’s Dollar BY JAS. S. DOREN LAS VEGAS. Lawyer H. X. Wellington entered his office through his private entrance like a portable west wind. He had once again set asunder what God had joined together. Squeezing his bulk into the swivel chair behind the desk, he fished in the drawer for a soda mint. Invariably after coming out of divorce court he felt dyspeptic. His frosty moustache bobbed up and down as he chewed the wafer. In one minute Miss Dingly would throw open the door, stalk in sternly remind him that he was late and that customers were waiting. Miss Dingly was the world’s most eflicient secretary and he disliked her intensely for it. The lawyer consulted his watch. Now, Miss Dingly! The door from the reception room flew open with flawless precision. Miss Dingly, angular, skinny Miss Dingly, e-ntered to announce that a client was waiting. “Show her in!’’ “It’s a man,” Miss Dingly sniffed. “He heard you were the best lawyer in Las Veg...
The Whale iPimmiaish ? [Newspaper Article] — Occidental — 15 May 1953
The Whale iPimmiaish ? "... as this appalling ocean surrounds the verdant land, so in the soul of man there lies one insular Tahiti, full of peace and joy, but encompassed by all the horrors of the half known life. God keep thee! Push not off from that isle, thou cans! never return!" —Herman Melville, Moby Dick The white whale breaches in the turbid air His great flukes crash in the sea’s recoil— Who sees? Pallid and tarnished is the doubloon's glare And dulled is the righteous lance. In our turmoil Fear has dominion. More treacherous than the shark Is the cunning mind of him who in his hand Can hold a people’s death, and toss it to its mark. We see this. But we do not understand. The soft isle burns beneath a globe of dust More whelming than the sea. Do not you weep, Old man: we flee as you pursued With vows we cannot comprehend or keep. We cannot pray, though a flood might mean ablution. So the island burns. And what is your solution? —Ann Harris
The Secret [Newspaper Article] — Occidental — 15 May 1953
The Secret What makes the stars be shining stars at night? What makes dark night not dark but velvet black? Night loves his stars by being night. Thus bright The stars with love give night black velvet back. What makes bare trees beauty in ebony? What makes snow’s white not dead white ’neath gray skies? - Snow’s white saves bare trees’ dun monotony; Trees’ bare lights snow—less one, perfection dies. What makes silence, though silence, divine sound? What makes sound more than jagged waves through time? Through each complete, silence and sound have found Together they be more—music’s perfect rhyme. Let us be stars to night and trees to snow. Only from unlike parts can music grow’. —Shirley Ruch
He Knew the Way The Story of Jack Brown, Sophomore,-Who Saw Oxy Grow from His Dad’s Print Shop [Newspaper Article] — Occidental — 15 May 1953
He Knew the Way The Story of Jack Brown, Sophomore,-Who Saw Oxy Grow from His Dad’s Print Shop BY HANK DICKSON ONE of the first words I learned t-c spell was ‘Occidental,’” says Jack Browne, sophorn or e, smilingly. “When I was small, I used to play a game called ‘Going to Decide nta 1’ in the streets. My folks always thought I was nfnning away, but I knew where I was going.” Although 40- years old, Jack Browne probably has more right to the title of an “Occidental baby” than the newest green - dinked freshman. For when he enrolled at Oxy last fall, he resumed relations with the school that, interrupted only by World War 11, go back to the days when he was a toddler. Jack, a husky man wnth an abundance of black hair and a small black moustache, is noted around the campus for his sleek, light blue German car, resembling a torpedo, that takes him to school and work. But it w'as in his father's print shop that Jack first came in contact with Oxy people, soon after he learned to walk. O...
Cinerama, New Demensional Movie, Imitates Your Own Eye [Newspaper Article] — Occidental — 15 May 1953
Cinerama, New Demensional Movie, Imitates Your Own Eye Many, many words have been written about Cinerama since it opened in New York not so long ago. Now, since they have finally moved the whole thing to Warner’s Hollywood Theater, more is being said about it than ever, with the resultant confusions and misapprehensions. Since many of us cannot raise the price ($l.BO-$2.40) necessary for a reserved seat ticket the next best thing is to find out something about it with the hope that someday the actual fact can be seen as it really is. But, remember, a thousand words are not worth one picture. First of all, don't confuse Cinerama with Cinemascope, Natural Vision. Magna Srceen and other 3-D processes. This is the first of the large screen processes giving a true third dimensional effect. It puts you right into the picture without the use of glasses. Used on Gunners The inventor of this process is Fred Waller who first used the effects in his Gunnery nee for the emotional experience of ...
AROUND TOWN [Newspaper Article] — Occidental — 15 May 1953
AROUND TOWN By John Utzinger This column will be filled with a lot of superfluous information which will come in mighty handy in case you don’t have anything to occupy your time between now and final exams. Perhaps it should .be entitled, “How to entertain yourself if you are getting bored writing term papers, studying for finals and comprehensives, doing projects and reports, or just sitting in your room brooding.” Looking at the problem theoretically we might say there there are a finite number of things to do in your spare time. One of the most common, in this culture, is to go to a movie. Now if you don’t want to waste your time sitting through a common, everyday flat movie, which you can see lor nothing on your television set, you can really shell out and see Cinerama or some other 3-D creation. This new process has caused quite a bit of commotion among critics and movie people in general, but at least if the reaction is mixed, it is profound. Some of the experts were muttering...
Rick's Kick [Newspaper Article] — Occidental — 15 May 1953
Rick's Kick By Rick Norton In a rather quiet fashion, a revolution took place a short time ago. In fact, it took place so quietly that only a few people are aware that it occurred. But most of those who aren’t aware wouldn’t care anyway. What was it? To state it very simply, Hot Toddy became a hit record. Now on the surface there’s nothing amazing about that; but Hot Toddy is an instrumental and no instrumental has become a hit since 1942. Therefore Hot Toddy’s sales of more than half a million are a source of pleasure to quite a few musicians. Of course, one hit record doesn’t constitute a trend. There are other examples. A young trumpeter named Ralph Martiere has a couple of records, Pretend and Caravan which are numbers two and ten, respectively, on the hit parade. Then too, the records of the Billy May and Sauter-Finegan orchestras continue to solidly jingle the cash registers. If the above examples aren’t jazz, at least they’re very close to the borderline and dispell some of t...
TTME TO HE KANT [Newspaper Article] — Occidental — 15 May 1953
TTME TO HE KANT The Age of Romance said “Poo to Reason!” (For thought was decidedly not in season) “Explain to us, Science, love in man.” The reply; “Oh, I can’t, But I. Kant thinks he can.” The Age of Romance said, “Rah for Kant! He claims the power of reason is scant; Love, he declares, is as real as the man.” “Can’t prove it,” spake Science. Said Kant, “I can.” “Love is as strong as a heady perfume; It even affects both Locke and Hume, Yet It will not by reason be understood—” “Can’t think straight,” some said. But Kant, he could. “What seems to be, it maybe ain’t,” Said Immanuel Kant, metaphysical saint. Remember, Science, when bold you would rant, Verstandt — and Vernunft. Says who? I. Kant. The Present Age cries. “Hail, Oh Atom!” Reason and Science have got the high-hatom; Love is ignored thought persistent its chant. “Can manage without it—” Some can, others Kant. Critique of Reason, Practical and Pure, You’re needed sorely now for sure, For Love must Science soon supplantt C...

Tigers Keep Flag Hopes Alive With 13-9 Victory Over 'Hens [Newspaper Article] — Occidental — 15 May 1953
Tigers Keep Flag Hopes Alive With 13-9 Victory Over 'Hens Occidental’s horsehiders unleashed their heavy artillery at the expense of Po-mona-Claremont last Saturday as they pounded out a 13-9 victory. Ken Wolters with four singles in six trips, Murray Via with a triple, two singles and three runs batted in, and Mike Bell with a double and a triple, led the Tiger offensive attack. The victory marked the 45th time in which the Bengals have defeated the Sagehens since their rivalry began way back in 1904. Pomona won that first game 17-3 but haven’t fared very well since that date, winning only 16 other tilts from Oxy. The biggest margin of victory occurred last season when the Tigers massacred the Sagehens 23-6. In fact, Pomona hasn’t won a game from the Tigers since 1948, having dropped 12 straight. Big Second Saturday’s fray was a wild tilt as the Sagehens jumped off to a quick 2-0 lead in the first. But the Bengals came bounding back in the second to take the lead once and for all. ...
Double Teams Enter Finals [Newspaper Article] — Occidental — 15 May 1953
Double Teams Enter Finals Oxy’s cotton-clobberers failed to qualify men in the top seeding for the league finals this weekend. But at Caltech this afternoon and tomorrow, the Orange and Black color-bearers will attempt to salvage some glory. On the varsity, the No. 1 team of Pettit and Roney will have the best opportunity to finish in the money. Roney is replacing injured No. 1 man Dick Martin. The freshman team managed to seed Gary Reynolds fourth In the singles competition and Dale Morter fourth in the doubles. These men should be very good material for the varsity team next year. But Oxy was not to be denied as they garnered three insurance markers in the ninth. Groat tripled and scored on Delaney’s single to left. Via and Wolters followed with consecutive singles and Burt forced Delaney at home. But Gordy Bonetto came through with a clutch single to drive in both Via and Wolters. Dick Dreher replaced Groat on the mound in the bottom of the ninth and quenched a Sagehen uprising. ...

Host Caltech As Three-Way Tie Possible The tenseness will continue to pinch like a new pair of shoes out Eagle Rock way when Occidental’s baseballers will be making a final bid to cap. ture their third consecutive league championship against last-place Caltech, on the Oxy diamond tomorrow afternoon at S o’clock. Right now the Tigers are firmly entrenched In a twoway tie for second with Whk&lt;« tier. Redlands leads the pack by a full game, but must put their bid for the title on the line when they square off against the terrible Poets to» morrow. Upset in Making If Whittier can upset the Bulldogs, like they did the Tigers a few weeks ago, well, the season would wind up in a very interesting three-way tie between Oxy, Whittier and Redlands. Whittier will send its ace hurler Dick Ferguson in an attempt to derail the Bull* dogs. But can the Poets solve the fast ball slants of Wally Pitts, by far the best pitcher in the SCIC? That’s the big question. Oxy, who is hopin’ and prayi...
Lmksters Battle' Pomona for Title [Newspaper Article] — Occidental — 15 May 1953
Lmksters Battle' Pomona for Title The Occidental golf team slipped miserably the last time out. They were badly beaten, by an inspired but mediocre Caltech team. The team was beset by over confidence, absenteeism, indifference and just plain bad golf. Lee Dudley and Jim kovacs were, missed as they couldn’t make it at all. Several others might just as well stayed.home. Gaines, Fulton and Hafway got the only points and none of them had a majority. Argue , was awful, Gaines ghastly. Fulton faltered and Harway hacked. Meanwhile, Peterson was putrid and Urnmel, uh-uh. All in all,' it was a sad day for the locals. This week they will meet the test. Oxy will have to beat a strong Pomona team twice. If they can do it, they can and will win the championship.

★ 'New Fangled' vs. 'Good Old Days' [Newspaper Article] — Occidental — 15 May 1953
★ 'New Fangled' vs. 'Good Old Days' Every once in a while we hear some patriarch of the past tell us how fortunate we are to be living in the 1950’s where all the potential of the world has been molded to bring us the finest educational facilities. This tale invariably involves a contrast between the plush circumstances of the modern world and the rugged conditions ■ rr oi the days “when I was a boy.” The story pours forth in voluminous detail, and each hardship is recounted at length—the two-mile trek through rugged country to a crumbling and poorly heated schoolhouse, study by candlelight and the crushing weight of countless chores. _ . _ The time has come to call a halt to such talk and to distill from loquacious ' nonsense the blunt facts. True, we have ■ moi’e comforts and more conveniences today than were available to our father or their fathers, but these same “higher standards” have bred a new race of hazards. Take, as an example, television. Did our parents ever have to con...

*paux 'P<%4 [Newspaper Article] — Occidental — 15 May 1953
*paux 'P &lt; %4 By MING AND UTZINGER It is becoming alarmingly clear that, in some of the more vocal circles of Occidental at least, to call someone a “conservative” is to call him a dirty name. This name is immediately associated in the minds of many unthinking people with the names of MacCarthy, Jenner, Dr. Fifield, or even Gerald L. K. Smith. The sad part of it is that the minute anyone expresses a part of an opinion which is traditionally linked with any one of these men or their ideas he is accused of holding the whole body of their beliefs, or the ideas which have been, through the ages, subsumed under the general and vague name of “conservatism.” On the other side of the fence, there are certain forces working in this country which are striving mightliy to connect up the name “liberal” with all kinds of other words: “communist,” “parlor pink,” “intellectual,” “v isio n a r y,” “dreamer,” “atheist,” and “agnostic.” A perfect example of this kind of muddy and confused ...
aag-fioi [Newspaper Article] — Occidental — 15 May 1953
aag-fioi " T It is usually appropriate after.a contest to tell of your appreciation for the enthusiastic response. But then, this is Occidental College. And the levels of appreciation, enthusiasm, and response exceed one another in their lack of appearance; Quite seriously, I was disappointed at the lack of response. It was suggested, however, that it was my “nasty and perverted”' personality that was the cause. I like to think that this is not a universal concept. Mainly, because it is not true. The suggestor of the above wrote me a lengthy letter (see Tiger Growls) the only response to last week's plea. Its contents were meant to upset. They did not. The real motive, unfortunately, was to show that I would leap at the opportunity to attack the letter and its author. The author will be disappointed. I attack only what I find to be grossly detrimental—if I attack at all. The letter and its author are more pathetic than detrimental. Had the letter been sincere I would comment on it. ...
A Complaint [Newspaper Article] — Occidental — 15 May 1953
A Complaint Now that term papers are due once again and we set about burning the midnite oil, it becomes increasingly apparent that all is not as it should be in regard to the form which our faculty deems so essential to the composition and organization of our “junior theses.” We acknowledge the fact that original research projects provide worthwhile study as long as they meet definite standards, However, our chief criticism is that there is no one standardized form which all departments are willing to accept. History of civ uses one form, art another, the English department still another and the history department no less than three different forms. In most cases, the differences are minor, BUT in each case the grade is lowered whenever these slight deviations are not in line with the accepted policy of that particular department, regardless of the fact that the value of the paper is supposedly determined by the content and not the form. It is our opinion that soma uniform standard...
' Comments to Columnists [Newspaper Article] — Occidental — 15 May 1953
' Comments to Columnists TIGER GROWLS To. Mr. James Goober My Dear Mr. Goober: I am 17 years old and a freshman at Occidental College. [Gruber's Note: I thought I saw you with a cap and gown!?!] When I first started going here I read your column every week, and was very impressed by the big words you used and the fact that almost everything you said was non-understandable. Since I have been in college almost a year now, and have taken such courses as English and introduction to logic I have come to the realization that what you were trying to get across was not supposed to be understood. In this way you insure yourself against attacks from the more enightened students of the school. Be this as it may, since you called last week for comments from your readers in “Next Time” I feel it a duty as a thinking, acting, responsible student of this institution to come in response to your rather cynical invitation. There seems to be a conflict between your desires to entertain your readers an...
