GROWLS^ [Newspaper Article] — Occidental — 5 December 1952
GROWLS^ A Question How many hours would it take a student librarian to mark the few hundred reserve books on the main catologue? It would certainly save much time and effort of both students and librarians. I would appreciate an answer. R. Waller Simply Oodles Dear Students: This is to answer how come there wuzzint enough FANGS to go around. Last year 800 copies of FANG were printed for each edition, and there were always ooodles and oddles of copies which were left over. This is known as waste and a dirty shame. So, this summer, when the first edition of FANG went to the printer, only 700 copies were ordered on the assumption that only about an oodle would be extras. But to everybody’s surprise the Tiger Taps sold all we had. (Note: we always have to keep 100 copies for files, advertisers’ copies ,and exchanges with other colleges.) One hundred copies were ordered for the recent edition, but there was a small foul-up, and the printer gave us only 700, the number we had ordered the ...

More Mexican Birds At Oxy Than Mexico [Newspaper Article] — Occidental — 5 December 1952
More Mexican Birds At Oxy Than Mexico By ELSIE FOREMAN There are almost as many Mexican birds at Occidental College as there are in Mexico. Where are they? You guessed it! At the Bird House. Oxy’s Moore Laboratory of Zoology, the gift of Dr. and Mrs. Robert T. Moore, has the largest single collection of Mexican birds in the world. No, these specimens are not alive. They're not even mounted. They are laid out horizontally, side by side, row upon row, in trays and stored in huge zinc cases, each case containing hundreds of specimens. Of course the birds must be prepared in a special way for the research work that is carried on by Dr. Moore and his Assistant Director Dr. John Davis. The skin of each bird has been preserved according to ornithological practice; the body is held rigid by a wooden stick inside the neck, given form by cotton padding, leg tied together with thread. A lot of work just for a bird! Just what would the average Oxyite see as he entered this haven for dead fowls?...
Dreams Disturb Troubled Tiger [Newspaper Article] — Occidental — 5 December 1952
Dreams Disturb Troubled Tiger By Janice Dean Tired? Dead! Want to go to sleep? Yes! Why don’t you? Can’t. Sheet’s around head! Can’t turn over. Pillow’s on the floor. Why? Kicked it there! Seems like eons since they began. But, no one really minds. Quiet? Can it be? Hardly! Bump! The ceiling above cracks as a small black line creeps across the moonlit expanse. Another thump, soft but persistant. The etching widens. Modern Dance a la cubby hole. A picture looms before weary eyes, black leotards, waving arms, a drum beating out the dark steps of an ancient rite. Then all is silent. Sleep! A bell rings. Must turn off the alarm. No alarm! An eye opens; an ear tunes in. A deep voiced whisper seeps through the plastered paper. Murder, romance? Who’s the speaker? No one you know. The play will be good! Even you’ll know the lines soon. They get into your dreams. Over and over! Work it out! Get in character! Enunciate! Round the vowals! Soon the chimes ring. Reach for the pillow. Can’t breat...
?CIUX 'Pat [Newspaper Article] — Occidental — 5 December 1952
?CIUX 'Pat by Utzinger and Ming Contrary to our usual policy we will cast off the role of impartial observer and indulge in a little advertising. “The Madwoman of Chaillot,” which Just happens to be opening tonight, promises to be a colorful and intriguing bit of drama. I wandered backstage one night this week and blundered into the midst of preparations for a dress rehersal. The octors and actresses were busily prancing and preening among the interesting litter of a not yet complete stage setting. A huge 20-foot high bed (for use in the second act) was standing in the wings. A boy was practicing riding in a full fledged bicycle across the stage. Stage Manager Willis McKenzie was frantically trying to locate a late-comer who was holding up the rehearsal. In the midst of this state of happy confusion Madwoman Dee Sharpe was sitting quite calmly, in a fantastic red hat, concentrating on her part, no doubt. Then the houselights dimmed, the Paris street singer began strumming his guitar...
r inn [Newspaper Article] — Occidental — 5 December 1952
r inn Fostered by the more wide-awake minds, there is a resurgence of anti-Tallulah feeling in the air. A great deal of this apprehension is due, no doubt, to the recent book on the subject. This thick pamphlet—egocentrically enough—is dubbed Tallulah, and is written by Tallulah, about Tallulah, for consumption by extreme sophisticates and professional demoralizers known in kindlier terms as “Tallulahites.” I do not propose a book review. I have not read the thing. I can tell you, however, what not to expect. There will be little humor other than that which concerns the negative aspect of our society’s sexual maladjustment. There will not be numerous references to this modern Joan of Arc as the true symbol of degeneracy, mocking futility, and “I don’t give a damn-ism.” This grandmother of indiscriminate hedonism has surely Included buckets of her scintillating chit chat with all the charm of a sack of corn meal. How could she avoid her constant allusions to bedsteads, large consumpt...
Tigers' Cars Not Bad Off [Newspaper Article] — Occidental — 5 December 1952
Tigers' Cars Not Bad Off How many students give a thought to the parking system here on campus, outside of the time they find themselves possessor of a ticket or not their favorite parking space? Let’s consider the question On the Pomona cajjnpus, penalty to comply with the regulations may include equestration (confiscation) and storage of the car at the student’s risk and expense for a period up to a semester. Other schools penalize violators by deflating the tires or towing the cars away and charging for the service before the cars are returned to the owners. Some colleges and universities prohibit their students from driving automobiles during the school year. Here there is an adequate amount of parking space for our cars and at no cost to us.
