Flag Pole Is Scene Where Riots Occur [Newspaper Article] — Occidental — 17 October 1952
Flag Pole Is Scene Where Riots Occur By JANICE DEAN Thar she blows! All eyes shot upward. A miss! The audience groans. The bowman draws again, ready to fire in an attempt to hook a rope on a huge four foot high, 30 inch spanned cardboard barrel hiding the upper end of Oxy’s flagpole. Meanwhile the Deans frown, professors calculate, scientists postulate. The problem? How did the barrel get up there? How to get it down? Luckily the staff solved that deli m m a and now carefuly guard their formula, leaving much to the genius of the students. According to Mr. Hare, superintendent of maintenance, the spire was moved to its present site before Swan Hall in 1937, when the campus was relandscaped. Since then culprits have cut its lines and pulled them off their pulleys. Rival schools have raised banners snearing Oxy. All done around our flagpole. Besides these attractions, every five years the pole must be painted. A small steeplejack climbs the shaft and sloshes paint over it on his descen...

THIS TIME [Newspaper Article] — Occidental — 17 October 1952
THIS TIME T5 'i It seems as though that time is here again. Not the time for changing oil or taking the laundry. It is the time for colds. And, always the leader, lam right out in front blazing the way with a nose-stopping affliction that would put any of you to shame. I am convinced that colds are psychological, brought on by an unconscious desire for attention. But they no longer serve their intended purpose. Do you think I’ve gotten any attention or sympathy from my latest unhealthy attempt? I get disgusted side glances. I get excluded from parties, hay-rides, movies. I get impatient frowns with people fleeing from me as though I were bringing the bubonic plague. I don't even have encouragement to get well. I'm lonely. There just isn’t any of that old-fashioned sympathy around any more. You have to be deathly sick before anyone will stop to notice you. If you are in an artifiical lung or in some equally serious way near your ancestors, you might have a visitor or two. If you are ...

Pres. Coons Urges Support for Prop. 9 [Newspaper Article] — Occidental — 17 October 1952
Pres. Coons Urges Support for Prop. 9 An appeal for support by Oxy voters on Proposition No. 9 in the forthcoming November 4 balloting was issued this week by President Arthur Coons. This bill deals with taxation of college buildings under construction. Under present law, Coons stated, nonprofit educational institutions of collegiate grade and the land on which they are situated are exempt from taxation. ‘‘But passage of Proposition No. 9 would extend the exemption to a building in the course of construction on or after the first Monday of March, 1950, if its purposes are for education,” Coons explained. “A YES vote,” he continued, “would therefore be beneficial to Occidental. If, for example, this college were building a new dormitory, dining hall or other building, without the passage of No. 9 it would be subject to regular tax assessment and tax payment, which would add materially to the cost of financing new buildings on campus.” The issue was brought up last year when a county ...
