'P'KMfcectcny [Newspaper Article] — Occidental — 14 November 1952
'P'KMfcectcny The prospects this week were many, but prospecting was rather difficult, since another red-letter word has appeared on the Oxy campus. The most famous red-letter word around this nation is, of course, “Communism"; however, “Dirty Rushing" is coming up fast on the inside. Although this is rather old news, it involves something current, and even if it didn’t, it would be too good to pass up. I seem to pick on this certain professor quite a lot, so I won’t mention any names. The day after election this prof entered class with a pile of books in his arm', and said these words, “As Governor Stevenson has said, the people have made their choice. We must now all join together to forge forward in a common cause.” With these, he dropped his books which he had been holdiri'g to disguise a large printed sign saying “BEAT POMONA!” Football season is drawing to a close, and although sorority girls won't be able to attend the Cal Tech game tonight, and rushees will arrive late, the ...

TiJitA SncC [Newspaper Article] — Occidental — 14 November 1952
TiJitA SncC Well, here goes another 12 inches of society news, and this week we're really at the end of our wits. It seems socializing has hit a new low here at Oxy. However, we did manage to go below the water line and find a few items. The annual Student-Faculty retreat caused a brief migration from Oxy’s sheltering cloisters to Camp Colby. A record breaking 150 enthusiasts endured sleeping bags and rain storms for the weekend away. We’d like to name all 150 since we don’t have anything else to say, but we won’t. A few who stayed home and studied were: And then Friday night on campus was another Square Dance, this time given by the Square Dance Club. We don't know a soul who was there so we'll go on to our next item, the Fiji dinner-dance. We did see a few couples there, although it was pretty dark (seems everyone was watching television). Couples were: Dixon Trueblood, Lari Lou Lindsey; Joyce Baldwin, Don Fulton; Martie Peck, John Browning; Joan Lewis- Bud Meeker. The ATOs were o...

Oxy Runners Garner Fourth [Newspaper Article] — Occidental — 14 November 1952
Oxy Runners Garner Fourth Last Saturday the Tiger thinclads journeyed across town to Westwood to compete in the annual Southern Pacific A.A.U. cross country meet. Over 220 contestants from 31 schools went through their paces in both the junior 5,000 and senior 10,000 meter courses, a total of approximately 9 miles. None of the Oxy harriers placed in the first 10 in the 5,000 meter contest. But this was not the ease in the 10,000 meter run, as Jim Terrill gamely fought to garner fourth spot and Claude Fiddler and Austin Emmerling tied for tenth place. The Oxy contingent scored a third team place in the 5,000 meter event with a tally of 68 and a second in the 10,000 meter with a total of 37.

Kappa Sigs, Fijis Tangle For Probable IM Grid Title By BERT WOODRUFF Off-Campus Men engineered their second victory of the intra-mural football season last Thursday, when they defeated Wylie Hall 28 to 20. The game’s outcome was in doubt almost all the way, as Wylie did not begin to fall behind until the closing moments of the game. OCM opened the scoring by sending Jim Hollinger over for the first six of his total of 19 points. John Hanna added the extra point on a flat pass. Bob Steadman of Wylie tallied the Wild Men’s first TD to complete the scoring for the first half. Both teams scored seven points in the third quarter, _ Mathias accounting for Wylie’s TD, with Bill Carling adding the extra point. OCM’s score came on a flat pass to Defrates who streaked down the field and into the Promised Land to •set the score at 14 to 13 for OCM. At that point it looked like the game could go either way. Then, in the final period, the aggregation from offcampus really began to roll, scoring ...

★ Spirit? [Newspaper Article] — Occidental — 14 November 1952
★ Spirit? Our football team has done it’s part. It has shown it can win games by downing the Cal Aggies at the outset of the season and by dumping Redlands in its last outing. The games lost have usually been by the narrowest of margins—real heartbreakers. It has played good, aggressive football—running, blocking and tackling with a vengence. It has proved it can win, and that it will continue to do so. Yes, the team has done its part. Have we? Here on our field, they nearly upset the most touted team on the schedule— Fresno State. Yet only a small number of rooters turned out to see this clash. The showing at Redlands was even worse. Much has been said and will no doubt continue to be said about that intangible thing called “spirit.” But how can we expect the team to stay at fever pitch if the student body is not even interested enough to come out to see them play? Tonight our squad will be meeting a hepped-up Caltech eleven here. The Engineers will be pointing to knock off the Tig...
BOX ONE [Newspaper Article] — Occidental — 14 November 1952
BOX ONE By Red Gresham November 7, 8, 9 saw one of the finest expressions of what a Christian liberal arts college can be. I am of course referring to the Student-faculty Retreat held at Camp Colby. To me, it was one of. the finest things possible for many reasons. It is a distinct advantage which only our type college can enjoy. In many institutions of higher learning, a student-faculty retreat would not even be possible. This might be for several reasons—policy would forbid it in our state supported schools, the faculty might not be deistically inclined, or at least in such a way as to care to express it. I am afraid this is the case in all too many of our advanced technical schools. Last but far from least comes the consideration that most (probably nearly all I other schools don’t have an organ adequate to handle such a project. I think that if the Student Church did nothing else this semester, it has made a signal contribution to enriching our college lives by this successful e...
*p<ucx Pad [Newspaper Article] — Occidental — 14 November 1952
*p&lt;ucx Pad by Utzinger and Ming We have finally come to the conclusion that “Faux Pas” has been consistently losing its readers. We have received neither compliments nor comments. Even an article of pure nonsense could not have been so maddeningly ignored. Especially last week, having the misfortune of being sandwiched in between two more pertinent articles, (campus and national issues), "Faux Pas" appeared to be helplessly aimless and a little bit sacreligious. Eet us assure you that we have no intention of boring you. If we do, then you must find life itself boring, and there is no hope for you anyway. Maybe life is just boring here at Occidental; OR maybe it is a distinct dearth of any kind of cultural interest whatsoever. Last Saturday night, for example, the Occidental Players and Speech 140 presented the playmill workshop, an evening of experimentations and artistic endeavors. Such a performance could have been a very suitable topic for our discussion had the perfor...
Peanut Man First; Coke Seller Follows [Newspaper Article] — Occidental — 14 November 1952
Peanut Man First; Coke Seller Follows By JUNE DAWSON Maybe those checks from home don’t start rolling in till Monday. Or perhaps Union food satisfies youthful appetites. Whatever the reason, it can be safely said that the Bengal bunch is a hot dog’s worst friend. Concession king Jeff Meisser ~~ woefully reports that Oxyites buy a meager 9.2 cents worth of food per person at home football games. Junior college students rank next with 11.3 cents. The elastic - intestined high school crowd consumes a whalloping 18 cents worth. After a three year hitch as head hustler, Meisser will retire after this season. Before his term expires, he has allowed some trade secrets to be published. Apparently, the peanut man has the hardest job. He has to break the ice by making your mouth water for those doublejointed delicacies. Once you've surrendered, it's a cinch for the coke salesman But it takes a course in advanced abnormal phychology to sell peanuts to Oxy students in the first place. Have you ...
Union Chef Comes 4:30 [Newspaper Article] — Occidental — 14 November 1952
Union Chef Comes 4:30 By JOAN ANGUS Have you ever wondered how and where the food that you eat in the Union is prepared? Fresh fruits and vegetables, milk, cream, and bread are received daily at the delivery entrance behind the Student Union building. As soon as they arrive they are cleaned, and potatoes are put through the potato peeling machine. Milk and eggs, ice cream, and meat are placed in separate ice boxes. Canned foods are kept in a large store room which is constantly checked to see that the temperature is right. The store rooms extend from the delivery entrance underneath the cafeteria almost over to the post office. The day begins early for the cafeteria employees. The chef arrives at 4:30 a.m. to fix breakfast. The baker begins at 5:30 and the engineer starts the cooking steam at 5:30. More cooks arrive at 6:00 to get the meal really going. While students are busily gulping before the 8 o’clock bell rings, the lunch preparations are already in progress. The average day ...
