Frosh Meet U of R Grids [Newspaper Article] — Occidental — 31 October 1952
Frosh Meet U of R Grids By Jim Terrill This very day the Occidental Jayvees play host to their Redland counterparts, and what takes place after the 2:30 kickoff is guaranteed to prove very interesting. This long awaited battle is the last Freshman home game, and should not be missed by any football-loving Tiger. Per usual, Redlands threatens to be rugged and would like nothing better than to avenge past Orange and Black shellackings by posting some 300 more points than our local troupe could scrape together. The Bulldog comes to town looking very innocent, what with an average squad of about 23 men, average size and no true standouts. But this picture is about as deceptive as the devastating Y formation from which they operate. They have met no conference competition as yet but have a perfect record of practice games and will be fired to fever pitch. Soooo, Tiger beware! New Talent In anticipation of a roughtough afternoon, Coach Jordan has bolstered his Freshman charges with the ad...

Visitors Halt Potent Oxy Attack in 20-9 Victory [Newspaper Article] — Occidental — 31 October 1952
Visitors Halt Potent Oxy Attack in 20-9 Victory By JOHNNY FISHER After spotting the red-hot Tiger crew a two point edge in the first half, Fresno State’s once-defeated powerhouse rallied to gain the nod, 20 to 9, in last Friday night’s tilt. The arclights of Patterson Field saw Oxy’s little Phil Lozano suddenly come alive in the first quarter as he stymied the Bulldog defense by completing five out of seven passes —one for a touchdown to Jim Reagan—before the State squad could get under way. After eight minutes of play the score stood at six to nothing and the Occidental alumni were beginning to whoop it up. However, after a sequence of plays by both sides following the kickoff, fullback Larry Willoughby of Fresno went around right end for 70 yards and crossed the goal line standing up. The score was nullified by a penalty but only minutes latthe same fullback scored officially as the second period opened. As a result of George Fisch’s conversion Fresno now took the lead, 7 to 6. Be...
HAWK’S EYE VIEW [Newspaper Article] — Occidental — 31 October 1952
HAWK’S EYE VIEW By Doug Hawke* Heaps of odds n’ ends . . . Glad to see the fifth Tiger ehosen to be Phil Lozano. Lots of aerials were seen last Friday night as the Bengal pilot flipped some beautiful short passes and managed to shake the invaders aplenty. Incidentally papa Gordon Wells was very close in the balloting and played his usual outstanding game. ... If Jim Regan doesn’t round Into one of the better backs in Oxy annals it won’t be his fault. The entire blame can fall upon the little dreaded ones in the pretty striped shirt. He is reminiscent of some of the old Bengals, namely Dusty Rhodes, Johnny Trump and “one play” Ted Calderone. He can break away on a minute’s notice and doesn’t seem to care who gets in the way. . , . All the gruntin’ groanin’ and particularly screamin’ heard recently up on the Baseball green is simply a little friendly Intramural flag football going full blast. . . . The fundamental rule of the game is to kill your best friend in the spirit of battle or...
Troy, Oxy Paddiers Meet In Big Pool Crucial [Newspaper Article] — Occidental — 31 October 1952
Troy, Oxy Paddiers Meet In Big Pool Crucial By STAN ABBOTT This Saturday at 10 a.m. the Oxy Tigers go up aaginst a tough, star studded SC Trojan water polo team. Allen Gilhcrest is one of the “studs” in the Troy lineup having gone to the last Olympics with the Canadian team. Captain Dick Oakerlund was All-Coast center back at Pasadena CC. Bill Foulger was declared All-California JC while at Compton and Frank Tanner was crowned with Intercollegiate All-American laurels. The Bengals won the last game against SC by a score of 11-4; however the Trojans didn’t have their whole team in uniform. This game will see the whole Troy squad in suits. This season the Cardinal and Gold has come within one point of winning over the California Bears who have led the PCC so far, and lost to Stanford, the Bears’ closest rival, by two tallies. Tiger Team Improves Our own squad has shown decided improvement in recent games and in weekly practice, according to player-coach Bob Burnside. Center back, Fran...
Tiger of the Week [Newspaper Article] — Occidental — 31 October 1952
Tiger of the Week By GARY RHEINSCHILD Last Friday night on Patterson Field, the Tiger team displayed a versatile passing attack for the first time this season. Phil Lozano at the quarterback spot was the key to the attack and kept the Fresno State Bulldogs in jeopardy during the entire game. Phil time and again completed passes for good gains. His ball-handling was deceptive. He exhibited excellent field generalship and varied the attack by carrying the ball himself for good yardage. For his outstanding performance and spirited team play, he was chosen as Oxy's Tiger of the Week by the student body. Phil is a slight and agile athlete, who stands 5 ft. 8 in. and weighs 170 lbs. of dynamite. He hails from Franklin High where he lettered in both football and track. In his first year at Oxy, he starred on one of the greatest frosh teams that Coach Payton Jordan has ever developed. That team remained undefeated and scored 245 points against 24 by the opposition. Last year Phil played var...
Caltech Takes on Orange And Black Thinclads Today [Newspaper Article] — Occidental — 31 October 1952
Caltech Takes on Orange And Black Thinclads Today Coach Payton Jordan’s Tiger harriers trot across town to dwellings of the Caltech Engineers this afternoon to check on which team of the two institutions can run over hill and dale in the shortest possible time. The starting gun will go off at 3:30 p.m. The Techltes have rated with the top teams in cross country competition down through the years. This year's band of hopefuls figure to put up the usual excellent opposition. having lost only one thinclad from last year's good squad. Veterans Lead With veterans Claude Fiddler, Paul Southgate and Jim Terrill carrying the Tiger hopes, the locals should take the bunting, but it won’t be in a breeze. The Techs don’t feel adverse to winning over the Bengal runners. On the same agenda will be seen the 1952 rendition of the Tiger Frosh contingent. Led by scampering Ace Emmerllng and George Holland, who have gone undefeated thus far, the Tigerbabes will be gunning for their first conference wi...

KAPPA SIGS CRUSH SAE'S; ATO'S ON TOP IN OPENER By BERT WOODRUFF Intramural football got off with a bang last Monday as Alpha Tau Omega successfully opened its battle to retain the flag football championship by defeating Swan Hall 7 to 0.

BOX ONE [Newspaper Article] — Occidental — 31 October 1952
BOX ONE By Red Gresham Last Friday night on Patterson Fieid the Occidental rooting section and supporters had the distinct pleasure of watching the resurgence of a very good football team. They played like they really meant it—not that they didn’t the previous week-end, but this time they were able to direct their determination and efforts toward a more constructive end. Unfortunately, they didn’t play consistently at this high level the whole evening, but the first five minutes were certainly gratifying to those supporters who have steadfastly maintained that we have a better than average ball club. After our jet propelled take off/ several people around me were speculating verbally whether or not this was actually the same team we took over to Whittier. The team has ironed out its difficulties. They did wax more than their share Saturday night. They played headsup ball against what was probably a superior team, and gave a very creditable showing. The student body let them down sad...
Facey and Clan Diligently Decide All Honor Cases [Newspaper Article] — Occidental — 31 October 1952
Facey and Clan Diligently Decide All Honor Cases By Elsie foreman Rival schools have long envied Oxy’s famous Honor Spirit. The backbone of this system is the Honor Court, this year headed by Laird Facey. Serving with him are Secretary Joan Davis and Nancy Penny, Don Zeigler and Dan Demaree. “To many students the duties of the Honor Court may seem quite simple and obvious, but,” Facey emphasized, “in reality they cover a vast range of student life and are almost inseparable from it.” The Honor Court is best known to Oxyites as a studentrun judicial body which tries all cases of cheating. The members are called when there is need to deliberate a case. Each case is tried individually, although precedents from similar decisions are used to reach a verdict. All proceedings are strictly confidential. Penalties vary from lowering the grade on a test to expulsion from college. These decisions are recommended to the Dean of the Faculty who may override them if he wishes. Aside from its judi...
GOP Chairmen-to-Be Make Demos Shudder [Newspaper Article] — Occidental — 31 October 1952
GOP Chairmen-to-Be Make Demos Shudder By KEN JENKINS Several weeks ago this writer brought to your attention the Republicans who would assume the chairmanships of the all-powerful Senate committees in the event of Eisenhower’s victory. It was assumed that the mere mention of these names would fill thoughtful Republicans and Democrats alike with horror and disgust Additional evidence has come to light which bears on this topic. The American Political Science Association recently graded all the Senators on integrity, legislative ability, and intellect. The above-mentioned eligible* fared badly indeed. Bridges ranked 73; Cape hart, 30; Milikin, SI; Ferguson, 49; McCarthy, 95; (about the bottom of the barrel), Tobey, 20; Wiley, 62. Nixon ranked 71 and Knowland 44. This nonpartisan rating serves to illustrate the great danger which besets this country. In a republic of government by committee, we cannot risk mediocrity and actual incompetence in these positions. Ah, you might say, this i...
Couldn't Happen Here-Could It? [Newspaper Article] — Occidental — 31 October 1952
Couldn't Happen Here-Could It? New parking meters on the University of Oklahoma campus may make the university some money, but they’ve already cost their library a valuable collection of rare books. Recently an old alum paid a visit to the library to donate a part of his book collection. While arrangements for the gift were being made, time expired on the man’s parking meter and the familiar parking ticket was neatly placed on his windshield. The alum went to the Comptroller’s office to pay his fine but found the office closed for lunch. After a half hour of waiting and fuming he decided that the university parking procedure presented too great a barrier to anyone merely wishing to present a gift to the school. So he took his books and home.
Stevenson's Stuck-Hexed with Harry [Newspaper Article] — Occidental — 31 October 1952
Stevenson's StuckHexed with Harry By STEVE SALSBURY The Democrats started this election with a threeheaded donkey. One head was represented by Harry, the other was for the Southern Democrats, and the third a strange compromise in the center, Adlai. When Stevenson started the campaign he was so bold as to talk about a "mess in Washington.” Somehow Adlai has ever since tried to keep up the ilusion that there still is a three-headed donkey and that Stevenson is not a substitute tor Truman. Facts do not substantiate this contention by Stevenson. Adlai is Truman’s man and there can be no doubt of that. It was Truman's alternate delegate to the Democratic Convention who publicly stated that Adlai was Harry's man, and urged the Democratic convention to vote for Stevenson. (At first Stevenson seemed to be his own man, and even said that he was not sure that the Taft-Hartley law should be repealed.) Since then Adlai and Harry have become one and inseparable. Adlai follows the Truman line on ...
Colwell Clan: Steve, Ralph & Paul Sing and Pick for Oxy's Tigers [Newspaper Article] — Occidental — 31 October 1952
Colwell Clan: Steve, Ralph &amp; Paul Sing and Pick for Oxy's Tigers By Elsie Foreman Oxyites will long remember the singhT ’n’ pickin’ of the Colwell Brothers who appeared at this year’s All College Barbeque. In addition they have performed at Oxy assemblies and were featured at last year’s Barbeque. The trio consists of Steve, an Oxy sophomore, and Ralph and Paul, sophomore and senior respectively at South PasadenaSan Marino High School. Steve strums the gee-tar and Ralph tickles the bass. Paul plays both the mandolin and the banjo—in addition to composing Mountain music masterpieces. So far he has come up with “Hillbilly Heart,” sung at this year’s Barbeque, and a gospel number as yet unnamed. The boys got interested in country music after they heard Tennessee !rnie and some other local cowb y singers strut their stuff at r dio station KTLA. They bought themselves some Inexpensive instruments and began to practice. The trio soon outgrew the amateur status. During their st...
'peucx 'Pad [Newspaper Article] — Occidental — 31 October 1952
'peucx 'Pad by Utzinger and Ming The art work of eleven Occidental alumni is being displayed in the Thorne Hall foyer. The art show as a whole is no doubt one of the best we have had in Thorne Hall. The exhibition, unlike the recent student art show, has no feeling of uncontrolled business. It is surprisingly balanced in its varieties of mediums, techniques and philosophies. The art show also reveals greater resources of imagination, originality and maturity. Jim Hickman and Jack Carr are the two artists who provide some of the most delightful moments of the show. Hickman, through his photographic design, reveals great sensitiveness and delicacy of feeling toward his surrounding world. His arrangement of glasses seems to be so fragile that they might break under the slightest stir of a whisper. If Jack Carr's paintings lack essential brilliancy and originality, they certainly excell in their technical excellency. The overall tone quality of his painting is grey in color. Among four ...
fS3@'B£E [Newspaper Article] — Occidental — 31 October 1952
fS3@'B£E [SY Despite protest, I have decided to release my SHOCKING EXPOSE. Quite unaware of my habit of remembering, many prominent people have given forth with their views on various subjects. I cannot be held for these quotes. I merely give the facts and let you decide for yourself. And now for my first exclusive; Hank D., when asked when The Occidental would improve, replied, "Sex is a fine institution and should not be abolished.” Red G. last week privately stated, “It is only a matter of time before ,1 gain complete control of th&gt;e masses.” Margaret K. made the passing comment, “There’s more than one way for a girl to be popular.” John U. was asked why he didn’t learn how to write. His only answer was, “Oh, you!” He was crying. Louise T., speaking of a particular English professor, said, “I’m nice to him, but I can’t stand him!” Steve S. was asked to please drop dead. His reply was much too dry and Republican to reprint here. Bob H. said, “I’m really finished if the...
