OXY DROPPED BY GATORS FOR SECOND GRID LOSS [Newspaper Article] — Occidental — 17 October 1952
OXY DROPPED BY GATORS FOR SECOND GRID LOSS By JOHNNY FISHER Again winning the statistical contest but coming out on the short end of the numerical results, Occidental’s football eleven returned to Eagle Rock after being nodded by San Francisco State 14 to 0 in Cox Stadium last Saturday afternoon. Despite an old-fashioned, hard fought, rock and sock defensive game, the Bengals couldn’t seem to spring their two scoring threats, Matt Kurilich and Jim Reagan, into the clear. Tiger drives were being stopped time and again by penalties before they could really get under way. The second and third quarters each saw the State Varsity score one teedee, the first coming via the aerial route and the second the hard way. on the ground. By note of interest, the second tally was made as Center Rudy Gallardo hit Jack O’Shay, the Don ball-carrier, so hard that he almost flew the last few yards to pay dirt. Call it anything you want, but anytime a man is hit that hard and doesn’t go down, it's a bad ...

TANKERS CALLED BEST IN YEARS [Newspaper Article] — Occidental — 17 October 1952
TANKERS CALLED BEST IN YEARS By STAN ABBOTT Oxy is classed as having one of the best water polo squads in the Southern California area, including SC and UCLA, says Bob Burnside, Fullerton JC transfer and player-coach for the Tigers. According to Burnside, our poioists this year are rated as being the best in many years. Supporting this claim is the recent victory over the SC Trojans In their tank, the first Bengal victory against Troy in quite a few years. Other schools in our area are similarly blessed with talent this year, with a few of them sporting former Olympic stars in their lineups.

Poets Drop Frosh Eleven; Caltech Next A victory-minded Occidental Freshman team invades the land of the slide rule tomorrow afternoon to do battle with the Caltech Beaver.

The backfield will consist of Prim, Howarth, Foster and team Captain Don Lyon. This determined crew looks for the win, a quest which could prove ...
Tiger of the Week [Newspaper Article] — Occidental — 17 October 1952
Tiger of the Week Ey DOUG HAWKES Old inevitable, George McGowan, is Oxyville’s Tiger of the Week for his outstanding defensive game shown against the Gaters of San Francisco State, last Friday night, in the metropolis of the fog. Denied the weekly honor the week previous by a margin of a very few votes, the Bengal Crusher was almost a unanimous choice as he tallied votes from the Tiger coaches, the opposing coaches and the referees. McGowan’s slashing tackles are not a new thing to local supporters, as he virtually plays the same outstanding game week in and week out. He has been doing it for two years now and still shows no sign of a letup. George is a product of the east coast, having attended Devitt, a private school in Washington, D.C. He came west in 1950 to try his pigskin fortunes at Glendale College where his football stock was good enough to win him the “Most Valuable Player” title over the crop of Vaquera grid men of that year. The third Tiger of the Week for 1952 has been...

The score was tied at the end of the regulation time at 27-27 and at the end of the first overtime, 29-29. ATO then jumped into the lead 31-29 and began to stall the ball, when Dick Sovde dumped in a hook shot and Bob Swan put on the clincher with two free throws.

* Good Luck [Newspaper Article] — Occidental — 17 October 1952
* Good Luck *T would like to take advantage of the wide circulation of The Occidental to wish you all a fond farewell. "Soon I will be joining several other Oxy fellows at the Newport, Rhode Island, Naval Training Station for OCS. "I appreciate the many memories and loyal friendships that have been experienced here, and look toward the day when 1 may return to see the united and expanding College which you have helped to build. “To the administration, faculty, staff and student body, I say, 'Thanks for everything'!'' —Ed Harper This letter, found in the editor’s box this week, marks the end of the collegiate career of one of the finest student leaders produced by Oxy since the war. Extending back well over thx’ee yeai’s, Ed Hai’per’s record of unselfish service to the student body and the school will not be soon forgotten. Though a student body president two administrations ago, his days of untixnng effort in helping make this fall’s barbecue successful were an inspiration to all co...
* Raiders [Newspaper Article] — Occidental — 17 October 1952
* Raiders With football excitement again pervading the atmosphere, we have again had to taste the bitter fruit of inter-campus raiding. There always has to be a narrow-mind-ed group on every campus—thank goodness a minority—who, thinking they help promote rivalries, go out to deface and destroy the property of other institutions. They cannot comprehend the reverberations that are felt for months because of their acts, or the embarrassment caused to the administration and the studentbody. These spasmodic displays of enthusiasm do little to pi-omote wholesome rivalries, and many harmful animosities are inevitably built up. The pity of it. is that so much pep is wasted that could be put to better, more constructive uses. True, we cannot expect 150 men bottled up in two dormitories to continually act like saints. But we can and do expect them to act their age.
BOX ONE [Newspaper Article] — Occidental — 17 October 1952
BOX ONE By Red Gresham Tomorrow night in Whittier, California, Whittier College is going to celebrate its annual Homecoming Day, replete with a banquet, decorations, floats, a dance, a parade, et al. In the evening, to fill out the program, they have even thrown in a football game. Because they are such gracious hosts, they have invited us over to share the game and dance with them. Therefore, it behooves everyone of us to accept their cordial invitation and trek over to Whittier tomorrow evening. In accepting this invitation, however, we place ourselves in a very compromising situation. Paradoxically it is our job to partake of their hospitality while at the same time doing out utmost to ruin their evening. Coach Roy Dennis is going to drop by with a few of “the boys” to see if he can’t help with that latter chore. It is going to take all of us to get the job done. Coach Dennis and “the boys” can’t do it alone. This doesn’t mean simply that we should all go to the game, it means mu...

Frosh Have Rough Time And our frosh think they havt :t rough during hazing! At Valparaiso University, Ind., the custom includes “brick parties, gang wars, painted signs and nocturnal processions of imprisoned freshmen women. ft At Princeton, officials have expressed concern over the “widespread use of scissors in the popular scalping activities practiced by both warring camps." The use of electric razors, however, is OK.
*pCLUX "PcU [Newspaper Article] — Occidental — 17 October 1952
*pCLUX "PcU by Utzinger and Ming The opening play of the Occidental dramatic season last week was a mild success. This means that “First Lady” was nice, unpretentious fun for a large pleased audience. “First Lady” as a play has no particular theme nor message or philosophical profundity. The plot is simple and conventional. It is essentially a typical Kaufman comedy—a slapstick satire on the “American Way of Life” —carried through by endless punch lines and witicisms. The main purpose of Kaufman comedies is to provoke merriment, but it should be done with a certain subtlty and sophistication. The Occidental version of "First Lady" ably fulfilled the first requirement, (provoking laughter) mainly through the personal efforts of the cast with not much help from Mr. Kaufman. But the style of presentation lacked complete consistency. At times the production achieved the mature humor that was required for the play, and yet, at times it fell into a pattern of burlesque and vulgarity. It w...
Politicos Wrangle With New Vigor Ike Opposes Own Attitude [Newspaper Article] — Occidental — 17 October 1952
Politicos Wrangle With New Vigor Ike Opposes Own Attitude By KEN JENKINS Eisenhower’s vitriolic campaign against the equally bitter Truman is somewhat akin to Hamlet’s ghost. Truman is the phantom and is much more real than the elusive Danish counterpart but a phantom nevertheless. The clairvoyant Shakespeare seems to have had a few words which are certainly appropros of Eisenhower today. “He sings several tunes faster than you’ll tell money; he utters them as he had eaten ballads and all men’s ears grew to his tunes. ... He hath songs for man or woman, of all sizes; no milliner can so fit his customers with gloves. ... He has points more than all the lawyers in Bohemia can learned handle.” Yes, that is his undoing. The politically immature Eisenhower has undertaken to discuss more points than he can conveniently handle. Lacking complete knowledge he should never have exposed himself to the cross-fire of Stepenson's pentrating analysis of detailed issues. The broad generalities and ...
Demos Cause Korean Mess [Newspaper Article] — Occidental — 17 October 1952
Demos Cause Korean Mess By STEVE SALSBURY Last week the Democrats were put in the embrassing position of either admitting that they were responsibile for two major wars or admitting that their party is in no way responsible for the return of prosperity. The basic factor to remember is that WAR or the preparation for WAR means proseprity in America, and that then end of WAR and the threat of WAR would result in depression. Such a depression would be as disasterous for the party in power as the great depression of 1929 was for Herbert Hoover. The “smart" men of the Democratic party realize these facts only too well. Now let us analyze the Democratic record and see how the “Peoples’ Party’’ is trying to solve the problem of prosperity not built on war. The major Democratic proposals for the future are these; continued staldmate war in Korea; an arms race against the Soviet Union concentrating on a large, expensive ground army; permanent universal military training; and a purely negativ...
Date Bureau? [Newspaper Article] — Occidental — 17 October 1952
Date Bureau? Dear Editor: Times and people change! Back in the dim, dark past a person used to be able to study for tests and such in the library. But it looks like this oncesilent building has become a social hall this year. And anyone who goes there to study nowadays just doesn’t have a chance. Aren’t there enough other places on the campus to socialize? Pleeeze—can’t we have it quiet in the library???? M. B. TIGER GROWLS
A Purr [Newspaper Article] — Occidental — 17 October 1952
A Purr Fellow Students: This is a Tiger Purr. The writer of this letter wishes to take the opportunity to thank those students who participated in the card stunts at the Santa Barbara game. You are to be congratulated for the splendid cooperation and support you showed—it was a job well done. WeTe only sorry you couldn’t see the results. The attitude you displayed more than compensates for the time and effort invested in these half-time activities. For this reason you only make us want to work harder to be deserving of such support. Many thanks also to the members of the card stunt committee, especially the Freshman fellas and girls who worked so industriously to make the stunts possible. Thanks also to Chuck Welborn for his ideas and able assistance. The committee has planned some tricky and unusual stunts for Family Night—the success of which again depends on you. Gratefully, George Chritton, Card Stunt Committee Chairman
Do We Agree? [Newspaper Article] — Occidental — 17 October 1952
Do We Agree? A test is a test—except In history of civ. Naive me thought that a civ. exam would test my ability on that subject. How should I know I needed a course in semantics to figure out the questions?

Do ya want to know what we know in civ. or are you out to see how confusing you can make the tests? Someone who just finished a civ. ‘‘exam.’’
