CRAIG'S [Newspaper Article] — Occidental — 21 November 1952
CRAIG'S Aha! So once again I shell be able to crack some yokes for my egg-headed readers. Don’t be chicken, if you capon reading you might enjoy a de-laid reaction. But I admit that a fowl sense of humor deserves the bird. And here we have the alums gathering at the yearly reunion. They're all college-bred, thanks to father's dough. As for me, I worked my way through college in a bakery—l kneaded the dough. I couldn't bake muffins, but I sure turned out whole-wit puns. I felt pretty honored when they graduated me “derma a dentes" till I discovered it meant “skin of the teeth." But I wasn't exactly dumb y'know; after all, I was a real estate broker's daughter and I knew lots. It’s amazing the things some of our old crass-mates have done. One old duffer (class of ’45) tells me he started raising rabbits in his living-room and had ingrown hares. Another is now a venerable prof and is rusting on his laurels. I heard that one Oxy romance turned into a lucrative business partnership in th...

'P'KM&ectitty [Newspaper Article] — Occidental — 21 November 1952
'P'KM&amp;ectitty By Joan Davis BIG NEWS this week is of course the annual Homecoming game and the big dance afterwards. It's too bad that the game has to be on the same afternoon as the big battle between SC and UCLA. However, for loyal Oxyites there's not much choice to make; it's only once in a long time that the Homecoming game happens to be with Pomona—rivals from 'way back. Freshmen will be working hard this weekend on the big Bonfire. These fellows really have the enthusiasm this year— ■ the wood has been partially burned by marauders several times just because they were so anxious to get started on bringing up the wood. Anyway, looking forward to seeing everybody at the fire tonight—smart scouts have been holding wet fingers up to the wind all day to determine what direction the wind is blownig. Let’s hope the wind doesn’t shift in the middle of the ceremony—we’ll all be asphyxiated from the smoke! Since football and rivalry seem to be the main objects of rumor and c...
THIS TIME [Newspaper Article] — Occidental — 21 November 1952
THIS TIME We were informed last Friday of those particular students who were chosen to the “elite.” I read the articles very closely, noting in particular each new name as it appeared. Skipping through the article on Phi Beta Kappa, I dwelt at length on those seniors chosen as “most likely.” Having read each word carefully, I can assure those of you who missed it that my name does NOT appear there. This last-mentioned fact moved me to great contemplation. I studied at length the implications and possibilities. And I was left not unimpressed with the dullness of the list in which certain names were conspicuously absent. I thought of the pollsters who predicted a Dewey landslide and was comforted. To those of you who share my plight 1 hold out some small glimmer of hope. I too shall prognosticate. In the years to come, three people shall arise. They will come from the ranks of those now on this campus. They will be leaders in three diverse fields. They will outshine all those now cons...
Alums Come and Alums Go; Our Roast Beef Stays [Newspaper Article] — Occidental — 21 November 1952
Alums Come and Alums Go; Our Roast Beef Stays By Elsie Foreman “Yes siree, same old roast beef for dinner,” chuckled the old alum as he reminisced over a lukewarm plate of “the nsua.l” at the Alumni Banquet. “Yes, I guess the place is here to stay.” Just what it is about this institution that makes the grads return? (In spite of the roast beef!) Certainly one of the main reasons is to cheer the team on to victory come tomorrow afternoon. “Almost as great as Kimalisky," says an ’O6 Tiger. “Did you see that pass!" This isn’t the only reason, however, that old grads evidence an interest in their alma mater. It’s a time to renew old acquaintances, and find out the latest news about classmates. “Say, did you hear the latest about so and so?” is the great cry. Homecoming also gives the old professionals who have gone into the world with an Oxy sheepskin a chance to tell us young squirts what it’s all about. “Well, of course they aren’t as outstanding as we were,” says a grad of the roarin...
-earle ja [Newspaper Article] — Occidental — 21 November 1952
-earle ja Feeling something like the proverbial old fire horse bolting in the direction of a fii'e alarm, I was happy to accept Hank Dickson’s invitation to pump the Well again for the homecoming edition of The Occidental. With the march of time those ‘ halcyon college days are undimmed in memory, and fond in- my mind are the recollections of the pleasant, if not too productive, hours spent in the service of this august journal. Our working periods in the nether regions of the Union were frequently interrupted by recesses to the Cooler, that last stronghold of the 5-cent cup of coffee, where we tapped the grass roots of student opinion on current campus affairs. In the fall of the year a frequent topic of discussion was football and how things looked for the Tigers: California had Its memorable “Wonder Teams” of the ’2o’s "hnd S.C. its “Thundering Herds” of the ’3o’s. I will long remember the era of the Raisin Bowl Team at Occidental. As Saturday succeeded Saturday in the fall of 19...
