★ All Over Again [Newspaper Article] — Occidental — 26 September 1952
★ All Over Again It becomes customary on most campuses to devote several weeks to the “indoctrination period” of new students. Along with this, in a kind of package deal, is the “return to campus glad hand week” wherein students clasp each other by the hand with hearty backslaps or clasp one another in their arms, depending upon the degree of intimacy. There are gutteral ha-ha’s or soprano giggles as the summer is reviewed and, in some instances, by the emotion displayed, one would think it was the reunion of the "class of 1908 rather than one of the early 1950’5. Many new students are by now familiar with the line about all the wonderful new experiences they’re going to cultivate, and the wonderful memories they’re going to accumulate. However, these are long-term- phenomena and usually the trip takes about four years, excluding the prodigies who do the course in less than par. No doubt many are becoming acquainted with their professors, and it is about this time that the new and v...
BOX ONE [Newspaper Article] — Occidental — 26 September 1952
BOX ONE By Red Gresham It is a privilege to appear in print before the student body in the first of a series of articles which I sincerely hope will be both interesting and informative. I will endeavor to present to you facts and opinions—both those of others and my own—which I hope will aid you in understanding the work of the ASOC council and the reasons we do the things we do. I feel it is fitting and proper that the first article be devoted to a discussion of our seventh annual all-college barbecue, and in the course of the article to prove that it is just what the name implies, an all-college event. The beautiful Los Flores ranch, where the barbeque is lif*ld, is jointly owned by four families, ranging in degree of affiliation with our college from close friends to parents of Oxy alumni to members of the Board of Trustees of our college. Therefore, we are off to a good start for an event which assembles all the many groups necessary for a successful college. The group which wil...
Emy Replaces Her Rice for Creamed Tuna [Newspaper Article] — Occidental — 26 September 1952
Emy Replaces Her Rice for Creamed Tuna By June Dawson Representing the Philippine Islands at Occidental this year is 21-year-old Elmira “Emy” Layague, while Peggy Orr is attending Emy’s alma mater in Damguete City. Sillimon College in Damguete City is home to Emy, tor she was BORN on that campus; And she attended kindergarten, grammar school, high school, and college—all at Sillimon. Emy explained that her school caters to all age levels from pre-kindergarten through college and has a total enrollment oi 3100 this year. Mr. Layague is principal of Sillimon's high school division. The college was featured in movies of the Philippines shown at an Occidental assembly last year. Most of us will remember the beautiful scenery with its views of the Pacific. California seems very hot to Emy after the Philippines. This sounds strange, but she tells us that there is usually an ocean breeze in the tropics to cool things down. Emy is studying psychology at Oxy. She received her B.A. in biology...
Column [Newspaper Article] — Occidental — 26 September 1952
Column By Utzinger and Ming The column has been entitled “Column” this week to catch the eye of the unwary percentage of this school (a lower percentage, it is hoped, than on the outside) who seldom if ever read below the heading of an article unless it is in some way grotesque. It should be obvious to you now, if you have gotten this far, that we have no intention of being purposefully grotesque. This will be a critic’s column. George Bernard Shaw once said, "People would rather die before they would think," and someone added later, "And most people do." This column would aim humbly at touching the hearts of those here at Occidental who would like to think a bit before they die about cultural happenings—plays and such —which appear from time to time on and around campus. We won’t tell you to get out and support such things (rah, rah) but we might say that in case you happen to have cultural things on your mind — that is, other than football, members of the opposite sex, etc., it wo...

Battle Begins Again With Fightin' Words Is GOP Nixon Entering for Beauty's Sake [Newspaper Article] — Occidental — 26 September 1952
Battle Begins Again With Fightin' Words Is GOP Nixon Entering for Beauty's Sake By Ken Jenkins Calvin Coolidge once said, in reference to Herbert Hoover, ‘‘That man has offered me unsolicited advice for six years, all of it bad!” In resuming a column of this nature on the eve of the national election, we must make clear at the outset that no “unsolicited advice” is intended here. My archaic (in political philosophy) but esteemed opponent who berates you from the adjoining column may have different views about giving advice. Rather than resort to his form of cabalistic intonation, we will explore, in cool-headed and rational manner, the real Issues involved. No attempt will be made to make Democrats, to absolve the party of some of its inherent weaknesses (which, incidentally, the Republicans do not admit of in their own), or to show that a golden age may be attained by embracing its principles. Despite the efforts of the Republican party to make the public believe that it has a mono...
Trumpet Blares Of Ham Adlai And Hero Ike [Newspaper Article] — Occidental — 26 September 1952
Trumpet Blares Of Ham Adlai And Hero Ike By Steve Solsbury Every paper must have an editorial policy. However, this does not mean that ‘‘The Occidental" has one. Most papers can afford to hire high-powered thinkers who adorn the editorial pages of the nation with pearly truth, calculated to influence the Intellectual elite by sheer logic, brilliance, and fairness of argument rather than by vile namecalling, ruthless smearing, or coy insinuations. "The Occidental" can afford to hire no such Westbrook Peglers or Drey Pearsons. Instead “The Occidental" must be content with a would-be Fulton Lewis Jr. and "I-wish-I-were Drew Pearson.” These two fugitives from MachlaKelvey will weekly present a clear, cogent debate on some vital issue in the titanic struggle bewteen Ike and the great Ham, Adlal. Let me warn you in advance that the would-be Pearson will charge Fulton and anyone else who stands to the right ol Senator Morse of being a tool of special privilege and a prime mover of Reaction...
Tigers Consume 450 Pints Milk Daily in Union [Newspaper Article] — Occidental — 26 September 1952
Tigers Consume 450 Pints Milk Daily in Union By Diane Kelsey During a recent survey In which students were asked what function of Occidental College they would least like to do without, the unanimous answer came straight from the stomach: Freeman Union! Their well-founded enthusiasm has led us to take a look behind the lines (and long lines they are) for a glimpse at the inner workings of this indespensable component of college life. The Union’s able and energetic director is Miss Clancy Morrison, who with the aid of assistant manager Mrs. Isabel Kegle and head cashier Mrs. Muriel Rath controls its important activities from her glassed-in office at the front of the dining room. Work is begun in the union kitchens at 4:30 a.m. and from then until 10:30 that night the constant clatter of pots and pans cheers the hearts of hungry passers-by. A typical meal for the Union’s 475 diners, as planned by Miss Morrison and prepared by chief cook Herman Linsel and forty industrious staff member...
Poor Li'l Bowser In Clutches of Vivisectionists! [Newspaper Article] — Occidental — 26 September 1952
Poor Li'l Bowser In Clutches of Vivisectionists! Over in the Physiology Department, professors sweat about antivivisectionists. The AV’s are the cultists who want to stop animal experimentation by biological and medical scientists. The AV’s say experimental animals are mistreated. The fact is that good scientific results depend upon good care of the animals. Here’s a tale of a dog used for surgical research. Bowser Black Sheep was a family disgrace. He dug into garbage ans. He had fights. He was afraid of cats. So Bowser didn’t dare go home. He wandered the streets al spring looking for a quick bone. By the first few days of winter, Bowser was just looking for a place to die. That's how the dogcatcher found him—beaten, desperate, unable to care for himself. He was in the pound for five days. One day a nice looking guy came to the pound and took him away in, of all things, a station wagon! The station wagon pulled up to a building that just smelled wonderful. There were dog smells, c...
This Time [Newspaper Article] — Occidental — 26 September 1952
This Time By Jim Gruber With the general state of things, both politically and emotionally, it hardly seems appropriate that I should be back again. But despite the many protests, I have decided to continue writing this year. And now that I’m here, we’ll see what we can do to provoke a smile or two, and perhaps a thought also. I have many advisers in the arts. Like the Baconians of Dr. Kurtz, they approach me in a crouching position and with wide-eyed intensity. Many have advised me to be clever and even downright funny anything that will pass the censor. Others insist that what appears here must strike a serious note and have profound observations with many a handy hint for living a good life, and all that sort of thing. Still a third group the bulk of my friends have advised me to give up writing altogether and learn to knit. Being a likeable sort. I’ll try to please everyone. And if you see anyone with a strange three-legged sweater, you’ll understand. Or maybe they were only kid...
Oxy High School [Newspaper Article] — Occidental — 26 September 1952
Oxy High School The same conservationminded administration which showed such economic prudence in removing paper towels and cups from the men’s dormitories has now gone to considerable expense to print and distribute aa Notice of Change in Required Assembly Regulations. These changes are subject to criticism for many reasons. In the first place, compulsory senior attendance would seem to be a clear cut violation of Occidental tradition. The privilege of being considered mature enough to choose those assemblies which he wishes to attend has for three years been the goal of today’s Oxy senior. Who would blame the seniors if they failed to attend? Secondly, four cuts were allowed last year. Does it seem reasonable to expect that the rest of the student body at some time or another would not find it expedient to use at least one assembly hour in preparation for an examination, term paper, etc.? To the freshmen, this assembly matter is not a problem. TIGER GROWLS For them there is no tra...

Fang to Take Off Humor [Newspaper Article] — Occidental — 26 September 1952
Fang to Take Off Humor This is rich! “A take-off on a college humor magazine," says Editor Bob Hansen, “will identify the October issue of Fang. The greatest thing that ever hit campus," is his promise. That's great, all right, but how we gonna know what a humor magazine looks like, I wonder? To put some of your minds at ease, the October 30 issue will not be an expose of the Student Life Commitee, Editor Hansen avers. The cover for the Tiger mag will be done by Chuck "Tex" Welborn, a real talented gent; creative bits by Ken Jenkins and Jim Gruber; and the first exhibition of freshman talent will be featured.
