Buddies Help Santa At Erdman Hall [Newspaper Article] — Occidental — 12 December 1952
Buddies Help Santa At Erdman Hall Cries of pleasure were heard throughout Erdman Hall on Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday of this week. The reason? Why, Buddy Week, of course. All the girls in Erdman drew names for a buddy. The object was to do nice things for her all week, but without her knowing who you are. That’s why the inhabitants of Erdman have been sneaking up to closed doors, leaving parcels, and madly running away. It would be a crime to be caught red-handed. This year, Buddy Week in Erdman was incorporated with Christmas week, and officially ended with the Christmas party on Wednesday night. Each girl made her buddy a Christmas card to be delivered by Santa Clause at the party, and in this manner, buddies were revealed. This was the third annual Buddy Week for Erdman. the dorm who initiated the tradition on the Occidental campus. The idea went over so well in Erdman that Haines and Orr adopted the tradition last year. They plan to have their Buddy Weeks later in the year. H...
'P'toAfcectmcf. [Newspaper Article] — Occidental — 12 December 1952
'P'toAfcectmcf. By Joan Davis Prospecting this week revealed that the big new's in the minds of all of us is, of course. VACATION. For some this means a job and fighting the crowds, for others a rest or a term paper, for others the shadow of impending Finals ■ (two weeks after we come back! will bring a more serious mood than has been anticipated. Many Oxyites face a problem of vocation which did not have to be met at Thanksgiving. This could be no other than “What shall I do with my fish?" One roommate argues with another over who should share Christmas with the little creature®, and others wonder whether they should start their Biology experiment and see if the marine life will survive over the holidays without food. After all—they'll have water! Just a switch for the moment —most of us don’t have the opportunity to watch television; in fact, even the radio is a luxury for me—my speed being Jack Benny once every two weeks —but if we could all have been at our television sets for t...
S*td [Newspaper Article] — Occidental — 12 December 1952
S*td We have just received COD our monstrous-sized edition of that new book, "How to Lose Friends and Alienate People," and after giving it a thorough perusal for five minutes or so, we have decided to send it back. We have found just by writing this society column, we know more about losing and alienating people and friends than any book can tell us. In three months we have become experts!! II Take last week for instance. Several people were rather incensed with rage when we innocently printed that Zeta Ann Dobson was pinned. She wasn’t ; she was engaged, and to Phi Delta Theta Bill Rankin yet. And of more recent note, was last Monday's engagement of Sue Godwin to SAE Bob Marimon. And then the Betas were over-joyed to learn of JoAnne Stone's pinning to SAE Don Yokaitis. Gad. after the typewriter gets through with this, Ann Dobson and JoAnne Stone will probably be engaged and Bill Rankin and Ann Conner will come out as having eloped to Reno. But we digress. Down at the SAE house Mot...

Oxy Future Shown To AWS by Frosh One of the Freshmen Women’s events, the freshmen women's assembly, was held last Tuesday in Alumni Hall.

The assembly included skits, such as the mock football game, Lu Reitzell in charge; singing by a freshman quartet; piano solos by Margie Arrand, freshman, and Jan Chambers, sophomore; a fashion show narrated by Barbara Macky and “cheer leaders of the future.” Nan Martin gave a speech on the Tiger that is to be given to the most deserving dorm at the end of the year. In these, and other highlights, over 50 freshmen women participated.
Oxy Quintet Goes To Sogehenville [Newspaper Article] — Occidental — 12 December 1952
Oxy Quintet Goes To Sogehenville By GARY RHEINSCHILD Last Tuesday the Bengal varsity basketeers trounced the Chapman College casaba quintet to the tune of 75 to 46. As the score indicates, Chapman offered little competition to the Tigers. Bengal Bill Andei’son cleared the bench to give his 16 players the opportunity to demonstrate their ability. While the game was little more than a tune-up, Coach Anderson was able to observe his less experienced boys perform under fire. The performance of the Tiger quintet does not give a clue as to whether they will garner a title spot this season. The score could have been much higher as Bengal Bill pulled his first string early in the first half and kept them in for only a short period in the second half. Let it not be said, however, that the Tigers did not show good team spirit and that Chapman did not give all they had. It was obvious that Chapman was simply outclassed and lacked sufficient depth. Gore Tops At Guard Bob Gore did on outstanding...
Meet Oxy Team -Joel Regan [Newspaper Article] — Occidental — 12 December 1952
Meet Oxy Team -Joel Regan Mr. Joel Regan first became acquainted with the sport of basketball in 1950 when a freshman at Loyola U. The first time he showed his melon wares on the hardwood, his coaches were amazed with his terrific floorplay. Regan was immediately placed on the first team. Transferring to LACC in ’5l, Regan was unable to compete for the Devils because he was carrying too heavy a study load. However, during the spring and summer Joel really hit his stride when he joined up with coach Scotty McDowall’s famous Kirby Shoes AAU quintet. Scotty noticed that Regan had ail the trademarks of being a good basketball player. He put him on the squad and within a few weeks he was a first string forward. While with Kirbys, Regan developed into a finished basketeer under the watchful eye of Scotty. And now Regan is displaying his basketball abilities for Occidental. Regan is an amazing floorman and really moves his little 5-foot 11-inch frame around the court. He is a wonderful ath...
Tigers Fall In Tourney Gilliland Makes All-Team As Benaals Felled Twice [Newspaper Article] — Occidental — 12 December 1952
Tigers Fall In Tourney Gilliland Makes All-Team As Benaals Felled Twice By DICK SOVDE Oxys’ varsity casabamen traveled to Redlands to participate in the Redlands tournament in hopes of catching a championship trophy. But the competition of Pasadena Nazarene and Whittier was too much for them. After defeating Westmont College by a 78-64 score, the bengal men went down to defeat before the onslaught of these two mighty "teams. The Nazarene men beat the Oxyites by a convincing 83-64 score, and Whittier sneaked out by a 6054 score. Westmont Falls Westmont was not much of a problem for Coach Anderson’s men as they fell to defeat by 14 digits. Oxy’s fast break finally got started. Westmont lacked depth and the effect began to show late in the third period. Thursday was very enjoyablefor all the team, as the scoring indicated. Bruce Gilliland came through with 18 points when they counted the most. He missed nary a free throw and hit for eight field goals. His defensive work was out- standi...
Your Team-Bruce Gilliland [Newspaper Article] — Occidental — 12 December 1952
Your Team-Bruce Gilliland Tall, gangling, Bruce Gilliland will bear much watching by his SCIC opponents in the remainder of the 1952-53 Occidental basketball season. Although Oxy finished fourth last week in the Redlands Tournament, this casabaman amazed everyone with his brilliant play. Gilliland was amassing point after point with his deadeye shooting. A phenomenal shot from anywhere on the floor, Bruce pumped in 38 points during the tournament. Add his floor game and his aggressive recovering of rebounds and jmu can easily see why he was selected to the All-Tournament team for the second straight year. Bruce hails from Huntington Park High where he was a fouryear letterman. He personally notched a 14-point-per-garae average in his final year as a high school player. Moving to Arizona U. in ’49, Gilliland earned a hard-fought berth on the freshman first string after battling it out with 85 other good Wildcat prospects. Bruce transferred to the Bengal campus in 1950 but was ineligi...

Hawk’s Eye View [Newspaper Article] — Occidental — 12 December 1952
Hawk’s Eye View By Doug Hawkes Some strong Bengal Banter has been over-powering the smog filled ozone 6i this Tiger lair and has been picked up by many alert ears. It isn’t good! From very reliable sources comes the information that in the near future, possibly by 1954, the Tiger pigskin agenda will be made up of a roundrobin affair within the SCIC. That is, that each conference member will play a two game series (?) with each team in the conference. Goes Back Somewhat, such a proposed set-up is strongly reminiscent of the kick-the-can and onebounce netball era of this scribe’s younger days. Who knows, maybe by the following year the Tigers will be meeting Wylie and Swan Hall for the conference crown. These tiffs would undoubtedly be right up our alley of paradise in ping-ponging. Somewhere along the line of educational strife, some individual passed the word to this aspirant that OXY was of college standing. Such a statement would indeed seemed ballooned beyond proportion should su...
KAPPA SIGMA DOMINATES ALL-UNDERRATES, MATHIAS TOP IN POLL [Newspaper Article] — Occidental — 12 December 1952
KAPPA SIGMA DOMINATES ALL-UN-DERRATES, MATHIAS TOP IN POLL By BERT WOODRUFF The sophomore class and Kappa Sigma teamed up to dominate the All-IM Football Team, which was selected by players from all seven teams entered in the IM league. Leading in the voting was Jim Defi’ates, diminutive OCM back who, receiving a total of 47 votes out of 96 cast, merited a place on the All-Of-fensive Team. Sophomore Jim was outstanding throughout the season, finishing as the top scorer in the league, with 74 points. Right on the heels of Joltin’ Jim Defrates came Freshman Jim Mathias who, with a total of 42 votes, placed second in total ballots and earned the right end position on the AllDefensive Team. Big Jim was a terror all season long and, no doubt, received his votes out of his opponents’ respect for his defensive ability, not to mention his exploits on offense which were instrumental in several Wylie drives. KZ, as the organization who placed the most men on the All-IM Team, was represented b...

Whittier Annexes SCIC Harrier Title [Newspaper Article] — Occidental — 12 December 1952
Whittier Annexes SCIC Harrier Title Whittier College surprised no one by walking off with the SCIC Cross Country Championship, held last Saturday morning at Mt. San Antonio Junior College. The Poets scored 22 points in their winning effort to second place Occidental’s 37. Cal Tech, Pomona and Redlands completed the team scoring in that order. Whittier, possessing the strongest Harrier squad in conference history, accomplished its well-deserved victory by placing the first four men. Russell Bonham annexed the individual crown by touring the four mile course in 21:34,5. He was closely followed by teammates Bruce Wedd, Sam Waltmire and Bob Keck. Terrible Terrill Occidental began to show up about now with Jim Terrill nabing the fifth spot closely followed by Claude Fiddler and Chuck Norman. Pomona’s Sam Calvin grabed off eighth place just ahead of Tiger Paul Southgate. Seniors, Captain Don Munroe and Dave Herman, running their last cross country race for the Orange and Black, tied for t...
Frosh Melonmen Snare Two Tiffs [Newspaper Article] — Occidental — 12 December 1952
Frosh Melonmen Snare Two Tiffs Last week the Tigerbabe basketball contingent had two gruelling workouts when they faced the Nuggets, a semi-pro ball club, and the Aggies of Pierce J.C. The Frosh quintet emerged victorious from both fracases by humbling the Nuggets 68 to 49 and the Aggies 77 to 47. The aggregation was really fired-up for these games and exhibited a unified and versatile attack not previously displayed this season. Mowry Motates In the Nugget game which took place a week ago Tuesday, Ron Mowry proved his worth as a member of the team when he went wild to hit the bucket for a total of 23 points to achieve the honor of high point man. He was followed by Ed Marshall, another Oxy Frosh basketeer, who with a unique and deceptive type of ballhandling managed to put the casaba through the hoop for 13 points. At the midway point in the game the benches were cleared so that every team member got a chance to play. ■ Pierce Pierced In the game against the Pierce Aggies on Friday...
SAE's Drop Chiller To Fijis in Final [Newspaper Article] — Occidental — 12 December 1952
SAE's Drop Chiller To Fijis in Final In their homecoming game played a week ago Thursday, SAE lost a heartbreaker to the Fijis when the Phi Gam aggregation tallied in the last few seconds Df play, to win 13 to 12. The Sigmas deserve a great deal of credit for their playing, which was the result of several practice sessions directed toward this encounter with the runners-up of the IM football league. By scoring in the second quarter on a beautiful pass from Tom Brown, the rejuvenated Sigmas drew first blood. Oji the receiving end of the long aerial was A 1 Wuerker who, skipping untouched into the end zone, furnished the only firsthalf TD. Boyd Bevington accounted for SAE’s other marker by scoring in the third period. Cook Scores First In the third quarter, Fiji Walt Cook scored Phi Gam’s first touchdown of the game. From then on it appeared as if SAE might pull an upset on the i highly-favored Fijis, as, with only a few minutes to play, the Sigmas led by a 12 to 7 score. Then lightni...
