The Tiger two-mile relay foursome of Ev Trader, Jim Terrill, Paul Southgate and Don Munroe turned in an heroic performance in the eight-lap-per. On the final leg of the event, Don Munroe matched California’s ace 880 man, stride for stride, and was out in front nearing the tape. But Munroe tripped and fell just inches short of the tape and Spurrier passed him to win top honors. Thrilling Finish On seeing Don fall to the track, the crowd of onloking Bengal thinclads rushed to his aid and helped him across the finish line, bringing on a technical disqualification. But here’s congrats- to a relay foursome that really ran their hearts out. The ensuing roar of the crowd at Modesto is apt testimony of what a thriller the Bengals turned in. The Frosh lived up to...

Over 550 students attended the chapel services this semester, the chairmen estimate.
2-Mile Relay Team In 3rd Best Mark [Newspaper Article] — Occidental — 22 May 1953
2-Mile Relay Team In 3rd Best Mark In the chill of Memorial Coliseum’s cold concrete oval before a crowd of 35,971 spectators, the nation’s best athletes turned on the heat last Friday night to shatter five Coliseum Relay marks. Although Coach Payton Jordan’s gallant thinclads failed to walk off with any first place ribbons, they still participated in the most thrilling relay of the evening. Two Mile Team Four strong-hearted Occidental Tigers —Ev Trader, Paul Southgate, Jim Terrill and Don Munroe—threw a real scare into the highly rated relay teams from California and Georgetown before succumbing to the men from Berkeley and Kentucky in the two-mile relay. All three teams chalked up times which are the three best times in the world this year. Georgetown in winning was clocked in 7:34.2, California in 7:34.9, and the Bengal foursome in the fine time of 7:36.1. The outcome of the relay was a tribute to team play all the way. A bit of unfortunate luck occurred to the Bengal mile relay ...

★ bouquets to All [Newspaper Article] — Occidental — 22 May 1953
★ bouquets to All I .o doubt about it, my time has come. My 12 months as “boss” of The Occidental are up. Over the past year I have come more than ever to appreciate the combined efforts of the numerous people who make our eight-page weekly possible. And so I’d like to pass out a few thanks to those who have given so freely. First come the page editors: Joyce Conger, Ron Hayes and Doreen Bradley, who covered the news pages; Doug Hawkes and Tom Peterson, who directed the sports section; Joan Angus, who spotlighted campus social doings; and Jan Kerr, who produced feature pages of consistent high quality. Jim Bare worked tirelessly keeping the copy uniform in punctuation and spelling, and Jim McCloskey was most faithful in sending out our exchanges. Miss Alma Creager, the ASOC man- ager, kept us out of many pitfalls, and Doug Smoyer held us within our budget boundaries with record-breaking ad sales. Frank Hanna and Bob Sharp were our faithful photo men, and the cartoons were produced b...
LAST TIME [Newspaper Article] — Occidental — 22 May 1953
LAST TIME by Gruber Apparently this time is the last time I’ll be writing this column. The reactions to this fact will range on a descending scale from complete elation to crushing dejection. I find myself in a foggy void fluctuating somewhere between the two points. Because of this relative omega, I intend to be completely personal and subjective, which is wholly in character. But I won’t be sentimental. I promise. Writers have a tendency to drip with sentimentality when they find themselves about to say farewell. Rather than say how much fun it’s been and how I hate to leave—which, by the way is true —I’ll say all the things that I should have said before. People have a strong urge to Tecomm. nd .that I mention their name. One of them was Martha Adams, poor girl; I did, and still I’m being approached. The best offer I’ve had so far is from one Vivian Dennistoun, sometimes known as “the sea hag of Corona del Mar.” She tells me that the ladies of the Zeta house oft times haggle over...
Oxy Emerged as Presbyterians' Dream in 1887 [Newspaper Article] — Occidental — 22 May 1953
Oxy Emerged as Presbyterians' Dream in 1887 By PEGGY MORTIMER Only two short generations ago Occidental College was little more than a dream in the minds of a small group of Presbyterian clergymen. Devoted to their church’s traditional emphasis upon higher education and seeing the need for a liberal arts college under Presbyterian direction in Southern California, several of them formed the Presbyterian Minister’s Union in 1886 and set forth to bring their dreams Into fruition. Soon after its formation, the Presbyterian Ministers’ League drafted articles of incorporation for “The Occidental University of Los Angeles, California.” Since the use of the word “University” in the charter did not fit the ideal of Occidental as a liberal arts college, the word "College” was substituted in 1892. The cornerstone of the main building was laid September 20, 1887, in Boyle Heights, and the college was formally dedicated and opened to students on October 8 of the following year. The main buildin...
Oxy's Taylor Pool Gives Tiger Thrills [Newspaper Article] — Occidental — 22 May 1953
Oxy's Taylor Pool Gives Tiger Thrills By ELSIE FOREMAN As I whipped my black cloak over by shoulders and surrepticiously slunk out of The Occidental office, ye olde editor accosted me, and with a nasty gleam in her eyes she sez, “How about a feature on Taylor Pool?” “Fine, sez I, never one to shirk a duty, no matter how unappealing. Bearing my martyrdom rather well, I sauntered down to the pool to have a chat with Forest Gist, who is Mr. Answer Man himself when it comes to swimimng pools. To my surprise I found that there is quite a bit more to the care of a pool than one would think. Cleaning Oxy’s 25x15-yard pool requires about as much work as cleaning a small house. To begin with, the 1850 gallons of water that the tank holds are constantly being filtered. Approximately eight hours are required to completely clean all the water. Three filters are used in this process, each of which holds 21 tons of wet stuff. They are lined with coarse rock at the bottom and fine sand towards the...
VUX [Newspaper Article] — Occidental — 22 May 1953
VUX By MING AND UTZINGER Comment on The Occidental: Ever since someone had nerve enough to write a Tiger Growl early in the semester against the blood drive, there has been shown a very healthy increase of interest in The Occidental. This letter set off a chain of letters, some criticizing administration policy, some just criticizing each other. While not all of these letters have been as intelligently written as they could have been, they have started a spark of controversy which has been absent from our school paper for these many years. The Occidental has shown its willingness to give everyone a chance to speak his mind. It is up to the student body to use this newly found priviledge with good sense and a rational attitude. If next year The Occidental can become what it only imperfectly began to be this semester, an articulate organ for the expression of student body views and criticisms, there will be cause for great rejoicing. Private feuds between individuals, of course, are e...
PROFS WILL LOVE YOU? [Newspaper Article] — Occidental — 22 May 1953
PROFS WILL LOVE YOU? Here are “10 Ways to Get Through College Without Even Trying,” as written in Pageant magazine by Professor Robert Tyson of Hunter College; 1. Bring the professor newspaper clippings dealing with his subject. If you don’t find clippings dealing vith his subject, bring in clippings at random. He thinks everything deals with his subject. 2. Look alert. Take notes eagerly. If you look at your watch, don’t stare at it unbelievingly and shake it. 3. Nod frequently and murmer “How true!” To you, this seems exaggerated. To him, it’s quite objective. 4. Sit in front, near him. (Applies only if you intend to stay awakt.) 5. Laugh at his jokes. You con tell. If he looks up from his notes and smiles expectantly, he has told a joke. 6. Ask for outside reading. You don’t have to read it. Just ask. 7. If you must sleep, arrange to be called at the end of the hour. It creates an unfavorable impression if the rest of the class has left and you sit there alone, dozing. 8. Be sure...
Bengals' Orchestra Gives Fine Concert [Newspaper Article] — Occidental — 22 May 1953
Bengals' Orchestra Gives Fine Concert By RICHARD NORTON This week, many of the ideas expressed in this column were co-authored by Ginger Joscelyn. A well-bal-anced program of instrumental music was presented by the Occidental orchestra last Monday evening to families, teachers and very close friends of the performers. Works by Beethoven, Mendelssohn, Saint-Saens, Hindemith and Truman Fisher were included in the program. All the reputed power of Beethoven's Second Symphony was brought to the fore by Mr. Lauris Jones' conducting. The second movement particularly reflected the orchestra's vibrant quality. The work, as a whole, showed one reason why the concert was held in Alumni instead of Thorne. The orchestra soundeo amazingly lull for only 33 pieces. The first movement of Mendelssohn’s Concert in D showed how agile he was at brilliantly saying something that need not have been said. However, the combination of Mr. Plummer’s interpretation and more creative thought on the part of Men...
