Prospecting [Newspaper Article] — Occidental — 5 December 1952
Prospecting By Joan Davis Ho Hum . . . back from vacation for a whole week now, and 1 still find it hard to get back into the routine. It's funny how quickly a person gets used to vacation, yet how hard it is to get used to work. I wonder if the psychology department has an answer to this problem? Football is gone for another year—even though Dr. Gulley’s statistics classes are mulling over the problem of why SC lost to Notre Dame. Some of us think there may be a logical explanation, but Gulley insists it just “wasn’t their day.” Anyway, it’s all over until the Rose Bowl game. In the meantime those who know UCLA alumni are now frantically trying to make connections at SC. Christmas is in the air, at least it's hanging in the air up on York Blvd. where the Yuletide decorations have been waving in the wind for three weeks. I never have been able to figure out why the decorations have to go up so early. Some people are so anxious to put their Christmas trees up that by the time Christm...

'WctA S*td This week the society reporters happily announce that Occidental College, breaking all precidents, fairly reeks with news, gossip, and even social doings. Avid reporters from all over the Southland converged on the Zeta house to gather information on the pinning of Ann Dobson to Phi Delta Theta Bill Rankin. Then, at the Alpha house. In a scene of fevered activity, the members were all busily engaged in watching the pouring of water and the passing of chocolates signifying the pinning of Dodo Kirkpatrick to ATO Chuck Welborn and the engagement of Luanna Gregson to SAE Pete Young.

Basketeers lop Leopards In Runaway [Newspaper Article] — Occidental — 5 December 1952
Basketeers lop Leopards In Runaway Three local G-men came to the rescue of Oxy’s varsity basketball team last Tuesday and ■then lead them to an 84-64 victory over a quintet from La Verne college in an Alumni Gym mixer. These three “agents” compiled 47 points between them which was more than half the total points of the Oxyites. The first of these fellows was Baxter Golden, who hit the bucket for 19 digits. He scored 9 field goals and one free throw for his scoring. Bruce Gilliland was second to none except for the scoring and in that column he racked up 17 buckets. Bruce was the workhorse of the evening, doing most of the work on both tht offensive and defensive boards. Bruce is now showing that his selection as an All-SCIC man last year was a good choice. His opponent scored but 4 points while Bruce was tipping in almost every shot his teammates would miss. Gore Gallops Last but not least, was Bob Gore who did an excellent job at the other guard spot by scoring 11 points and reboun...

McGowan, Wells, Kurilich, and Padilla, all winding up their college pigskin careers, were the only repeaters from last year’s team. These four outstanding Tigers along with Gal...

Sagehen Buried as Locals Win Crucial [Newspaper Article] — Occidental — 5 December 1952
Sagehen Buried as Locals Win Crucial By 808 DREIBELBIS and JOHNNY FISHER Despite a six-point handicap by local odds-makers, the underdog Oxy gridsters came through like the proverbial champs to shut out the do-or-die “Owl” boys from Pomona, 13 to 0, on the winner’s field in the final contest of the current campaign. Sporting a 7-0 lead at halftime, the Battling Bengals pushed across a second and final score in the fourth quarter to put the game on ice. Big Tom Fallows and newly-elected All-Conference Jim Regan each pushed across a teedee for the Tigers with Jack Chamberlain booting the odd digit. By virtue of nodding Pomona in this final tilt of»the season, the Oxymen shot their seasonal win-loss record to a respectable four and four, losing only to the Whittier Powerhouse in league play and thereby garnering second-place laurels. Long Punt In closing out a bruising four years of competition at fulback, Keith (the Human Tank) Noonan executed the most spectacular play of the game as ...
KZ's Cop in Grid Title; Defrates Leads Scoring [Newspaper Article] — Occidental — 5 December 1952
KZ's Cop in Grid Title; Defrates Leads Scoring By BERT WOODRUFF Clinching the IM football championship, Kappa Sigma moved to its sixth straight victory by completely out-mudding Wylie Hall, 41 to 7, in a Tuesday afternoon game. This gives KZ a perfect record and breaks the jinx that has been hovering over the Sigmas for the last four years, the Sigs narrowly missing the championship each time. KZ completely dominated the game from beginning to end, scoring everytime they got their hands on the ball. KZ has only been forced to punt three times this season. The Kappas got moving early in the game when Doug Hawkes passed to Merv Cooper for the TD. Hawkes repealed this feat in the second quarter by again uncorking an aerial which landed once more in the arms of Cooper. Cooper scored his third touchdown of the day on an end around double reverse for another KZ third quarter marker. Mike MeCready scooted around left end in the second period to score and later added a conversion to bring h...
Tartars Edge Frosh Quintet [Newspaper Article] — Occidental — 5 December 1952
Tartars Edge Frosh Quintet The Frosh Basketeers had their first important test of the season a week ago Wednesday when they scrimmaged Compton High, losing a hard-fought game by the score of 51 to 50. The defeat was in no small part the result of 22 fouls against the Oxy Frosh, on which Compton capitalized to great advantage. Coach Marvin believes that this fault will be corrected in the coming games and considers it fortunate that Compton offered such rugged competition. The game was a good tuneup and disclosed certain weaknesses which the coach is working hard to overcome. Marvin feels that his material looks very promising and hopes to have a successful season. Lyle Swanson, All-California State high school team last year, played a fine defensive game at one of the guard positions; and Mike Lomen, who hails from Eagle Rock High where he played first-string basketball, was brilliant on offense by hitting the hoop 8 times for 16 points. Box Score Oxy Frosh (50) Compton (51) Marshal...
Poets, Bengals Favored In Conference Encounter [Newspaper Article] — Occidental — 5 December 1952
Poets, Bengals Favored In Conference Encounter Tomorrow morning at 10 a.m. the Occidental varsity and freshman cross-country squads take to the hills behind Mt. San Antonio College, where the SCIC harrier championships will be held. The Tigers, defending kings, enter the meet as underdogs, having lost to Whittier in dual meet competition. The race figures to be purely a BengalPoet battle as the rest of the conference was easily subdued by these two leaders. Poets Potent Oxy’s Varsity entry of Captain Don Munroe, Claude Fiddler, Jim Terrill, Dave Herman, Chuck Norman, Paul Souhgate, Wally Condon, • Floyd Strain and Bob Rockwell are very respectful of Whittier, one of the strongest teams on the coast, but plan to push the Poets every stride of the four mile course and even dare to contemplate an upset. In Russell Bonham, Whittier possesses one of the nation’s leading milers, ably assisted by three excellent team mates. Senior Sam Waltmire made the final Olympic Tryouts in the steeplec...
Tiger of the Week [Newspaper Article] — Occidental — 5 December 1952
Tiger of the Week By GARY RHEMSCHILD A ferocious Bengal Tiger celebrated Oxyville’s annual homecoming day, November 22, by devouring its old rival Cecil Sagehen to the tune of 13 to 0. An outstanding performance, both on offense and defense, was turned in by Dick McCullough. While Dick has been a consistent performer this year, he played brilliant ball in this game to reach his peak for the 1952 gridiron season. Dick’s spirited play gave him the Tiger of the Week award by the unanimous vote of the Tiger coaches. Dick was destined to be selected “El Tigre” during the season, and it is fitting that he received the award for the final game of the year and the last one of his football career at Oxyville. Dick hails from Fillmore High where he lettered in football. He earned his Oxy varsity letter during the last two years and was a two-time All-Conference back. .In 1951 he received Little All-Coast Honorable Mention. Dick is a rugged and durable athlete who stands 5 ft. 11 in. and tips ...
★ Tiger Chest Time [Newspaper Article] — Occidental — 5 December 1952
★ Tiger Chest Time Once again the time has rolled around for the annual Tiger Chest drive. Perhaps many students do not realize that the Tiger Chest is a comparatively new thing. It was originated in 1950 by Jeanine Goebel. The drive will be conducted this year for only the third time. New students, and old ones too, are perhaps not conscious of the convenience this combined effort affords. Community Chest, Red Cross and the Cancer Fund are three of the many organizations that will benefit from your one contribution. „ By this neat “package deal,” a great deal of wear and tear on your college pocketbook is spared by eliminating the continuous small drives that would otherwise be upon us. This year the time allotted for the drive is less, but the goal is still high—sl from each student. The responsibility for the success of this drive will therefore rest upon the active support of each student. Don’t wait to be tracked down personally by a member of the Tiger Chest committee. Take it...
BOX ONE [Newspaper Article] — Occidental — 5 December 1952
BOX ONE By Red Gresham Recently it was my privilege to attend a luncheon put on by the Bill of Rights Commemoration Committee at which nearly all the colleges and universities in this area were represented. : The luncheon was for the purpose of getting the ball rolling in the institutions of higher learning.for the 161 st anniversary commemoration service of our American Bill of Rights, to be held December 15. Our Bill of Rights is one of our most prized possessions as Americans, and yet all too often we don't even know what it is or how it helps us. i am going to devote this column and the following to a discussion of our rights and privileges as American citizens under the first 10 Amendments. Today I would like to present to you excerpts of a speech given on Labor Day, 1932, by President-elect Dwight D. Eisenhower. “Most of us have been enjoying a long week end, terminating this day dedicated to free American labor. How depressing it is to realize that on this Labor Day, 1952, on...
Emmons Had 4,003 Cases In 60 Days [Newspaper Article] — Occidental — 5 December 1952
Emmons Had 4,003 Cases In 60 Days By PEGGY MORTIMER According to Miss Ruby Rich Burgar, Occidental’s head resident nurse, the infirmary has handled 4003 cases during the first two months of the semester. Colds in the form of diseases of the upper respiratory system and virus infections have been responsible for many of the cases, Miss Burgar stated. This semester there have been more calls by men than women, (chiefly because of the larger masculine enrollment). There are also more medical accidents among the men, because of intramural sports. Fortunately, there were no major accidents in connection with the football team. Records reveal that during September 3 men and 5 women were hospitalized for a total of 25 days at the infirmary. During October 19 men and 6 women spent a total of 72 days there. Patients at the infirmary wdre served 206 trays of food in September and 360 in October. Twenty students were given medical aid at the barbeque, 5 minor operations were arranged for and a...
Dishes Drop, Bottles Too-Mess! [Newspaper Article] — Occidental — 5 December 1952
Dishes Drop, Bottles Too-Mess! At Texas Christian University a-student tripped in the cafeteria, broke all the dishes on his tray and started an incident which ended in enough dishes to fill a 50-galion can. It happened on a Sunday afternoon. After the student stumbled and broke the dishes, several more students dropped their trays and ran from the room, apparently in protest oyer the meal. .Then came a volley of soft drink bottles from the lounge. The cashier stopped serving the lines and pleaded for order. The cafeteria manager asked that a Committee meet with her and discuss the grievances. But no one is really sure that the grievances were at the bottom of this. The student newspaper there claims that some students are loud in their complaints about cafeteria food, while others praise it highly. The entire incident might just have been a psychological chain reaction.
