'P'KMfcCCtitiy [Newspaper Article] — Occidental — 17 October 1952
'P'KMfcCCtitiy By Joan Davis Prospecting around this week I found the main event in the minds of all was the heavy test and paper schedule with which most students seem to be burdened. How is it that this same situation occurs periodically during the year just when low grade notices are due? You'd think professors would have enough paper work to do, writing out notices, without having to mark papers as well. In fact, it would be a lot less work if they didn't send out any low grade notices at all! Why doesn't someone point this out at the next faculty meeting? Friday is usually a good day, but today is certainly a Friday to set a standard for all good Fridays. Not only is it the end of a hard week of testing, the date of girls’ dorm dances, and the day before we play Whittier —always an exciting game—but many students have a special reason to feel a lift since this is PAY DAY for Oxy student employees! Open House went off as . smoothly as it always seems to do, despite the number of...
