Folding Money... [Newspaper Article] — Occidental — 7 November 1952
Folding Money. .. "And Thereby Hangs a Tale" —S hokespear* By LEIGH RATCLIFFE The Occidental takes pleasure in presenting the second in a series of selected fiction produced by Prof. Albert Croissant's short-story writing course. LLOYD BARRINGTON put the receiver back on the phone, rolled over on the kihg-size four-poster and gazed at' the scene below. The swank Riviera Arms overlooked the Pacific. As he watched the wavSS come in, the comers of his mouth tightened in a sneer. It would have been worth half of the profit just to see Gates’ face when he discovered that he had been taken for twenty grand. “And the beauty of it all,” Barrington mused half aloud, “was that it was all legal—as legal as an old maid knitting herself a shawl.” That’s how he liked to do business the safe way. Lloyd Barrington was a gobetween for the biggest gamblers in the' state —the biggest suckers of them all. He never missed a bet, because he never gambled. That’s how he stayed in the big money. He dressed...

Comments on Election Show Varied Ideas When asked “What did you think of the election results?” several students and faculty answeredjin the following way: Phil Jordan I believe that the Ameriacn people have reaffirmed their faith In free enterprise. Hunglay Quon Kinda gloomy day—wrong party won. Dr. James Bickley —Magnfico! He’s the President—l’m for him! Robin DeVore I am very pleased that the outcome was as I anticipated.

Tigers Vote for Their First Time [Newspaper Article] — Occidental — 7 November 1952
Tigers Vote for Their First Time By ELSIE FOREMAN What’s your idea of the BIG THRILL? What do you think of as once-in-a-lifetime experience? For many Tigers this week, the ones over twenty-one, the BIG THRILL was voting for the first time. To most Oxy voters casting a ballot was an intensely thrilling and patriotic experience. Jan Johnson remembered the exact time she cast her ballot. “It was 7:05 a.m.,” she reported, “and some people had already voted! I felt so thrilled and patriotic.” "I think my vote really counted this time,” said Richard Harvey, a grad student. "I had a feeling of accomplishment.” Joanne Grace felt voting was quite an honor.

THIS TIME [Newspaper Article] — Occidental — 7 November 1952
THIS TIME TSY My vast reading public has lately been urging I use new subjects for discussion. Mail has been pouring in pleading for (1) good writing, (2) public apologies for last week’s slander and (3) intelligent discussion of pertinent problems. Just this last week two postcards poured in asking about my views on the election. ground of the patter of little —— feet owned by rational Americans going to the polls, I offer my abortive thoughts. The pollsters could not tell us who the winner would be. They had no inkling that it would be a landslide for Truman. It’s true. Americans have a fear of bald heads. They would rather have an empty than a smooth one. But this time they get both. The victor has told us, “As sure as my name is (please fill in), I have followed Mein Kampf to the letter; ‘lf you wish the sympathy of broad masses, then you must tell them the crudest and most stupid things’.” But let us take heart; we have honest men representing us. Honest? Oh yes, that. Simon Ca...

Oxy enters tonight’s contest with a seasonal record of 2-4, while the Engineers are still looking desperately for their initial ’52 victory. Tech has lost five In a row and it is very unlikely that they will be able to break this exasperating record tonight. Bengals Favored The Bengals should win easily by three TDs. For it seems almost impossible that the 31 man Caltech squad can cope with the Bengal’s terrific speed and depth on offense, along with Oxy’s bone-crushing defensive forw'ard wall. However, don’t count the spirited Tech men put. Although they were trounced by Whittier 45-6. Caltech has looked very impressive in losing to Pomona 19-14. an...
