An Error! Gad! [Newspaper Article] — Occidental — 24 October 1952
An Error! Gad! Much to the chagrin of the Oxy sports editor a glaring, an unexcusable error has been brough to the fore in last week’s shet. Wylie Hall’s Intramural Basketball team did not tie the ATO’s as stated (in a headline), but snared the third slot. A very outstanding OCM crew was the contingent knotted for the top slot. An apology is in order. Such huge sore thumbs will be avoided in the future — Yahweh permitting.
Tiger of the Week [Newspaper Article] — Occidental — 24 October 1952
Tiger of the Week This week’s “El Tigre” Is one, of Oxy’s most versatile and outstanding athletes. He was unanimously chosen for this honor in recognition of his sterling performance both offensively and defensively on the gridiron against the Poets Saturday. Tiger of the Week award is only one of many honors he has won in the field of sports while at Oxy. He is one of the few athletes to make varsity letters for three consecutive years in both football and baseball. Last year he was the only man on the Oxy football squad to be selected by the coaches of the SCIC for All Conference honors both on offense and defense. He also made the All Conference baseball team. He formerly lettered at Los Angeles High and is now a youthful 22, stading 5 ft, 10 in. and weighing 185 lbs. He is experienced and rugged. He can take it and dish it out. This hard hitting back is one of the key players on the Oxy eleven this year. Last year he carried the ball 47 times for a total of 206 yds., averaging 4...
Wakeman, Swanson Lead Best in Top IM Season [Newspaper Article] — Occidental — 24 October 1952
Wakeman, Swanson Lead Best in Top IM Season As a reward for their outstanding effort in the 1952 IM basketball campaign, The Occidental sports staff has picked, in their estimation, the all Intra-Mural basketball team. Leading off at forward is Jim Wake man, an ATO, who was chosen for his great ability to drive in for hook 1 : shots and lay ins. Jim’s rebounding power was also very important in his success. In the estimation of the,, sports staff, Jim was chosen the most valuable player of the 1952 season. At the opposite forward is Ed Marshall, a freshman ■ from Monrovia, who lives off-cam-pus. Ed was always a dangerous threat with his set shot and ,jump shot from the key. Although playing only five games at center for Kappa Sigma, Dick Sinclair was selected as best choice for the center spot. Dick averaged almost 11 points per game. He was very deadly from the key circle and was always under the bucket fighting for the ball. At one of the guard positions was very agile Lyle Swanso...
Holland Leads Frosh to Win [Newspaper Article] — Occidental — 24 October 1952
Holland Leads Frosh to Win Jogging jauntily through the hills, George Holland carried the colors of the Oxy Frosh to victory -in last Tuesday’s cross country meet between Franklin High School of Highland Park and Occidental. Holland’s winning time was 9m3.65. Bob Emmerling, brother of Austin Emmerling of the Oxy Frosh, was outstanding for Franklin. Bob, who plans to attend Cal Tech, was rated by Coach Payton Jordan as showing real promise. Frankin fielded eleven contestants, while Holland, Austin Emmerling and Paul Walker represented the Oxy Frosh. The remaining members of the field of nineteen were Varsity tracksters who»went along for the work-out. All nineteen finN ished the race which covered a distance of 1.8 miles. The course extended from Patterson Field to Escarpa and Campus Drives. The particpants swore that it was all uphill. No team was named as the winner since this was purely a practice meet. However, a good look was afforded of Oxy’s first year trackmen andjt can easil...

Tech Felled By Fighting Frosh Grids [Newspaper Article] — Occidental — 24 October 1952
Tech Felled By Fighting Frosh Grids By Jim Terrill The Freshmen footballers observe a bye this week end, but get right back to work Monday afternoon at 3-:30 when they travel to East Los Angeles to scrimmage the Bulldog reserves. This practice session is in preparation for the next conference game, with Redlands, October 31. East L.A. will afford as much competition as the Oxy Tiger can absorb, for they are ranked as one of the better teams in Junior College ranks. Last Saturday afternoon the Yearlings kept their thumb in the SCIAC pie by downing Cal Tech, 34 to 20, at Tournament Park. The Tigers had things pretty much to their liking in the first half but cooled off considerably in the third canto as Tech tied the game. Coming to life in the fourth quarter, however, Oxy added two more scores to gain a squeaky victory. Oxy received the kiclc-off but immediately lost the ball via an intercepted pass. However possession was soon regained when Tech fumbled and the Tigers drove 96 yards...
★ Reform Coming? [Newspaper Article] — Occidental — 24 October 1952
★ Reform Coming? With November 4 but a few days off, we find the campaigns of both parlies drawing to a frenzied climax. As in every election, we are hearing numerous promises of “executive reform” by both parties in and out of power. They tell us of sweeping legislation that will regroup agencies, combine functions and greatly reduce the cost of government. Let us not be deceived. Every President since the turn of the century has been trying to bring about some consolidation of the executive branch. The recent work of the Hoover Commission is only the latest in a long series of Investigations to make recommendations for governmental improvement. What becomes of these recommendations? They get to the floor of Congress as reform bills —and there they usually die. Yes, it is our Congressmen—the ones who make the most noise about economy and reform—who will not permit these recommendations to become legislation. Why not? Simply because individual Congressmen and Senators protect agenci...
BOX ONE [Newspaper Article] — Occidental — 24 October 1952
BOX ONE By Red Gresham On October 3, Box. 1 was devoted to the subject of Inter-campus raids. I was trying at the time to put over the idea that they weren’t good for many reasons, several of which I enumerated. Since that date, sufficient time has elapsed to make a fairly conclusive survey of the fruits of my article and our entire program which was directed to the end of eliminating raids. All our efforts are of marked significance for their dismal failure. On Tuesday night before the Whittier game, one group went over to Whittier with a can of orange paint and proceeded to rend their feeling of I don’t know what—perhaps repressed aggression—by painting up the walks, trees, and buildings of Whittier’s campus. There is no doubt that this group is a very small minority of the Occidental student body, but nonetheless, we all suffer for their despicable activities. That’s what makes it doubly bad. This group doesn’t have the guts to own up to their childish work, but makes us all pay ...
Oxyites Work In Library, Union V Gym [Newspaper Article] — Occidental — 24 October 1952
Oxyites Work In Library, Union V Gym By Diane Kelsey Money may be the root of all evil, but according to the average Oxyite the only time it becomes a problem is when he doesn’t have it. This is most of the time. However, the Occidental Student Employment office is doing much toward solving this sad situation. So if you are in a state of desperate destitution (and who isn’t?) you might amble into Johnson 6, where Mrs. Phyllis Knight, secretary of Vocational Guidance and Placement, will try to outfit you with a job appropriate to your talents. According to Office Manager Miss Janet Hoit, who is head mogul hi these vital affairs, "It is the desire of the College that wherever possible work opportunities on the campus will be assigned to students. We wish to make as many job opportunities for students as we possibly can.” These opportunities vary widely, and include such positions as academic assistants, readers, lab assistants, clerical workers, dorm proctors, switchboard operators, a...
Election Is Closer; Words Fly Furiously Ike Will Not Approve UMT [Newspaper Article] — Occidental — 24 October 1952
Election Is Closer; Words Fly Furiously Ike Will Not Approve UMT By STEVE SALSBURY The two-headed elephant is a thing of the past. No longer Is there a split between the Taftltes and the Ikemen. It is Interesting to note the Democratic reatcion to the Taft-Ike co-operation. On the surface the Democratic newspapers scream Ike is Taft’s slave, but in reality they know that Taft and Ike are a winning combination. , Out of the harmony which has developed in the Republican ranks there has come an Important clarification of issues. Among these has been Ike's stand on Universal Military Training. The return from military to civilian life has given the general time to think about UMT. The result has been a realization by the general that Universal Military Training would be bad for the country. The Democratic Party claims to be "liberal" but in Universal Military Training they are supporting the most reactionary policy since Tory proposals to remain part of the British empire in 1776. UMT i...
Oxy's Pep Band Is Also AF-RO [Newspaper Article] — Occidental — 24 October 1952
Oxy's Pep Band Is Also AF-RO By Elsie Foreman Oxy’s high stepping pep band is the pride of all Tiger football rooters. Composed of 26 AFROTC cadets and four Oxy students, the group plays at games, pep rallys, and other special college events. “It must be stressed,’’ says Mr. Lauris Jones, director, “that this is not just the RO band. It is the all college band.” Members voted to wear the RO uniform. Leading the band are majorettes Jan Kerr and Geanie Owen and drum major Paul Young. Directing the drill practice is Sargeant Sargeant Daughtry Is assistant music director. The group practices from 11 a.m. to noon on Tuesdays and Thursdays. Members get both band and AFROTC credit, a total of two credits an hour. Extra practices are scheduled before the games. Many halftime stunts are being worked out for tonight’s homecoming game. All of the players are extremely well qualified for their positions since many of them have played in high school and at Oxy last year. In addition many are mus...
Ike Will Seek Army Regieme [Newspaper Article] — Occidental — 24 October 1952
Ike Will Seek Army Regieme By KEN JENKINS In these dangerous times the stress Is upon unity. In this campaign much verbalism has been devoted to the prospect of a president who can "unify the nation” in the struggle against Communism. Let's pause amid the tickertape and confetti and take stock of this attribute. Is It wise for the people to choose a military man who has been so cloistered by 41 years In the army that each day brings new surprises about the issues at stake? Like some Alice-in-Wonder-lond. Eisenhower expresses dolly astonishment upon discovering such things as taxes, high prices, strikes, labor injunctions, farm parities, political patronage, etc. The Republican Party has a natural leaning toward military men. Thirty times the Republicans have met in a national convention and 15 of the times have chosen a military man as the candidate (Democrats—five generals out of 32 conventions). How well did they do with their generals who were elected? Did presidents such as Harr...
liLr, [ mUJwijl [Newspaper Article] — Occidental — 24 October 1952
liLr, [ mUJwijl BY GRUBER There seems to be developing around campus that mid-semester drag. This is not a chance, it is an occupational sickness. It is recognizable by apathy, cynicism, defiance, boredom, lethargy, and in extreme cases, absence. Lest you become too complacent and think the day of reckoning is yet off in the misty future, leave us formulate a few frightening facts. Five weeks from now brings ~ ' Thanksgiving vacation. After those two days of turkey and relatives and “My! How you've grown!’’ and no studying and “Let’s sneak out and have a beer,” we come back for two weeks more of classes. Then comes thre§ weeks off for Christmas and more relatives and “Oh, you shouldn’t have done it!” and "It's lovely! What is it?” and days of wild preparation culminating in a grandiose anti-climax of tissue paper all over the place. After the mess is cleaned up and you realize you didn’t get a thing you wanted, you turn to whomever you usually turn and this time you go beyond beer a...
Bobbie Cook States Greece Is Challenge [Newspaper Article] — Occidental — 24 October 1952
Bobbie Cook States Greece Is Challenge By ELSIE FOREMAN “Greece presents a challenge to all Americans for a real understanding of its people.” This is the emphatic statement of Bobbie Cook, last year’s exchange student to Greece. —— Bobbie studied at Pierce College, an American missionary school nine miles from Athens. Since her major was social welfare, Bobbie gained an over all view of what was being done in this field in Greece. A majority of the people, according to Bobbie, are in a very poor economic condition due to wars, occupations, and the lack of adequate natural resources. Much needed help is coming from ECA, CARE, Red Cross, and the World Council of Churches. In addition, many European countries maintain agencies there. The United States has given much aid to the Greek army which, Bobbie says, is the largest of any European country in proportion to population. The primary reason for this aid is the strategic position of Greece. “If the Communists get Greece,” Bobbie- con...
*pCUCX 'Pat, [Newspaper Article] — Occidental — 24 October 1952
*pCUCX 'Pat, by Utzinger and Ming For a change from the usual fol de rol we get in most movies nowadays see “The Strange Ones,” which opened at the Laurel Theater two weeks ago. It is a French- movie adaptation of Jean Cocteau’s novel, “Les Infants Terribles.” The picture is more mood than plot, but tells on a semisubconscious level the story of ■n adolescent brother and sister Who live in Paris groveling in an erotic dream world of their own creation. It would be interesting to show the film to Dr. Brighouse’s class in abnormal psychology. The point of the picture is never quite clear, but perhaps true genius in art stems from an ability to touch the feelings and emotions of an audience rather than the intellect. The whole effect of unreality Is masterfully achieved by the interweaving of Bach background music, mood provoking photography and the naive artistry of the French boy and girl who play the brother and sister. In case you don’t already know it, that stone head that looks c...
She Can't Use Shaving Cream [Newspaper Article] — Occidental — 24 October 1952
She Can't Use Shaving Cream The Daily Texan editor wasn’t really complaining; but she had a problem: “Along with press releases from railroads, manufacturers, political parties, and an occasional letter, the editor’s mail includes free subscriptions and trial samples. Such as one came the other day, in a neat interesting little box. To any other editor it probably would have been welcome. But this editor is finding it difficult to create use for a trial jar of shaving cream After much thought on the subject the young lady finally found a use for the jar of shaving cream. (Their wedding was announced yesterday.)
Shoeless Lass [Newspaper Article] — Occidental — 24 October 1952
Shoeless Lass If a pair of navy blue and white saddle shoes are walking around without an owner, I know someone in desperate need of them. Seriously, at Soph-Frosh Day someone picked up the wrong pair of saddle shoes, and left their own which I have in my possession nowj. If every girl that attended Soph-Frosh Day would please check her shoes to be sure that they have the right ones I would certainly appreciate it. If you find you have the wrong ones, please contact me. Thank you Signed, Doris (shoeless) Anderson Box 244 TIGER GROWLS
WharVEl Tigre'? [Newspaper Article] — Occidental — 24 October 1952
WharVEl Tigre'? What has happened to “El Tigre”? We were under the impression that this student-spon-sored publication was going to be a regular Oxy tradition after being so successful last year and year before. There was a story in The Occidental of October 10 stating that “El Tigre” needed a staff and editor. Many of us consented to work on the paper, but nothing has as yet happened. What’s wrong? Isn’t the Spanish Department in favor of such a project, or is it that we' still haven’t got an editor? Gr perhaps a sponsor is needed? Name Withheld
Famished Us [Newspaper Article] — Occidental — 24 October 1952
Famished Us I think that the people who run the Union don’t realize how many more people are eating in their place of business this year than there were last year. It’s a gruelling task for us students each meal to stand in line for such a long time. Why not extend the feeding hour fifteen minutes more for the poor unsuspecting ones who fail to be early birds?
