★ A Question [Newspaper Article] — Occidental — 12 December 1952
★ A Question Today is the last day for the 1952 version of the Tiger Chest drive. Approximately one-half of the stated goal of $lOOO has been reached. Spokesmen say that “never before in its history has the drive fallen so short of its goal.” We have but one question to ask: Why was a drive normally conducted in late . October postponed until the last week of school in December? As most people connected with charity drives will tell you, no one time of the year may be better than another to ask for mon£y, but there are certainly times that are poorer. We feel the Tiger Chest committee could not have picked a poorer time. The excitement accompanying the advent of a three-week vacation is enough to distract most students sufficiently. Christmas shopping is another problem ' that looms large on the horizon of the average college pocketbook. Some students have to pay off large bills for Christmas picture orders. Last ' week Christmas Seals were mailed to each student —for the first time...
★ Bill of Rights [Newspaper Article] — Occidental — 12 December 1952
★ Bill of Rights Tomorrow the Bill of Rights Week will end. As per usual, not much fanfare nor celebration came forth about the “Week.” But then, the Bill of Rights has been with us for a long time. Experience has shown that organic constitutions alone can guarantee nothing. Hitler rose in a Germany governed by one of the most liberal constitutions ever conceived. Several South American countries combine the rule of a despot with a liberal constitution., Any bill of rights, then, needs the continuing support of the people if it is to work. We must continue to support our fundamental rights against such external enemies as Communism and such saboteurs to our freedom as the ultra-patri-otic Pro-America groups.
BOX ONE [Newspaper Article] — Occidental — 12 December 1952
BOX ONE By Red Gresham Well, the great and glorious day has finally arrived. Nowall we have to do is eat, drink, and be merry for three whole weeks—in between reading assignments, term paper, and practice sets. But while we’re enjoying this leisure, we might give a moment’s thought to why it is w'e can enjoy this time, free from worry about being awakened by a knock on the door and being carried off to prison for some unknown reason. The things that guarantee our property and lives against arbitary government are our Constitution and the Bill of Rights. Too many people don’t even know what the first ten amendments are. Briefly stated they are as follows: 1. Freedom of religion, speech, press, assembly, petition; 2. Right to keep and bear arms; 3. Rights regarding the quartering of soldiers; 4. Regulation of search and seizure: 5. Protection of rights and property; 6. Rights of persons accused of crime; 7. Right of trial of jury; 8. Protection against excessive fines, bail, punishmen...
Lots of Dogs Live at Oxy [Newspaper Article] — Occidental — 12 December 1952
Lots of Dogs Live at Oxy By JANICE DEAN Beware dog catchers! Beware ye animal haters! Oxy is no place for you. For there are notables of the canine family among us. And whether pedigreed pup or country cousin, each one is an individual. From Thorne to the library, from the Greek theatre to Patterson field the sound of bells announces the approach of Buttons. Small, black and white with a tendency toward peroxide on his tail, Buttons bounds across campus after quail, pigeon and wren. In his second home, the music quad, he hears the most inspiring and howling of notes. Just as long as he doesn’t begin to accompany in a doggy falsetto, he will continue to be a feature diversion. Up the road a piece Monsieur Tallyrand, Dean Dumke’s pet black French poodle, guards his home with ferocious barks. He’s only a year old but for a “small standard’’ pup it’s odd how Tally looks a visitor in the eye whenever he (Tally) Jumps up and tugs at his collar. Such behavior is not expected of a graduate ...
Lener sriowftH^ Behind Iron Curtain [Newspaper Article] — Occidental — 12 December 1952
Lener sriowftH^ Behind Iron Curtain By JUNE DAWSON Glimpses behind the Iron Curtain are a rare thing these days, but accounts of life in Soviet-occupied areas do occasionally leak out. Gabrielel Milz, an East German medical student, escaped censorship by mailing her letter to Angela Castell in the Western sector. Angela, an Oxy senior, met Gabrielle last summer at an international work camp in Berlin. The letter gives such a vivid picture of student life in East Germany that Angela would like to share it. Gabrielle was refused admittance to the University twice last year, despite recommendations from important people, because she would not join the Communist party. Most of the students do belong to the party, and Gabrielle says that they have no student spirit. Everyone begins classes at 8 in the morning, and continues through till 7 at night. The reason for the long hours is the amount of required political courses. Both Russian and German politics are studied, and if students do n...
Tiger Growls [Newspaper Article] — Occidental — 12 December 1952
Tiger Growls Eager (?) I see by last week’s issue of The Occidental that “one hundred copies were ordered for the recent edition of Fang.” The previous paragraph says that “we keep 100 copies for files, advertisers’ copies and exchanges.” I’m glad to see that Fang has reached this all-time circulation high (?). (Doodles, yet!) When does the line start forming for copies of the next edition ? Frustrated
'Bop' Helps Musicians Express 'Kicks' They Get From Music [Newspaper Article] — Occidental — 12 December 1952
'Bop' Helps Musicians Express 'Kicks' They Get From Music By RICK NORTON Overheard—some off-campus women talking during lunch time; — “You know where we oughta go?” “Where?” “Bop City.” (Many laughs all around) “Yeah, I can just see us there.” (More laughs) So here’s my pitch; Why the verbal sneers about “bop”.—or any other form of jazz for that matter? Do the sneerers have the background to justify, their sneers? The music critics for the New York Times and the Saturday Review, on one hand, have studied and listened to music for years. Most of them like jazz as well as the classical music they review. (It was Irving Kolodin, of the Saturday Review, who wrote the cover notes on the Benny Goodman 1938 Concert album.) But, on the other hand, what basis do students have lor a dislike of jazz? Have they listened to the various types of jazz that range from soft, modern combos to free-wheeling traditional Dixie? Have they heard jazz at the Philharmonic or Les Brown at the Palladium? Have...

Australia Puts Ban Curbing Asiatics [Newspaper Article] — Occidental — 12 December 1952
Australia Puts Ban Curbing Asiatics By STEVE SALSBURY We hear so little from the country “down under” that I sometimes wonder if the newspapers and radio commentators know that Australia exists. In spite of Australia’s small population (a population as large as New York City occupies a continent almost as large as the United States) she will still continue to play an important role in world affairs in the Pacific area. In order to understand what this role is, it is necessary to know something about Australia’s history particularly in regard to immigration. Australia as a nation has one ol the world's highest living standards. As a continent she can support at least four to five times more people than her present population with no decrease in the living standard. In spite of this, Australia has a moderately slow growth in over all population. This is because Australia has one of the most restrictive immigration laws in the world. This is because of two reasons. First, it’s because ...

'paux "Pat, [Newspaper Article] — Occidental — 12 December 1952
'paux "Pat, by Utzinger and Ming A play critic is nothing more than a keen play observer. Therefore a play critic must first be an observer; he must be one of the audience. Secondly, he must possess adequate knowledge of theater to be a keen observer. While the audience enjoys and experiences a play the critic thinks and analyzes. "Faux Pas" so far has not been a good play critic for the simple fact that neither Utzinger nor Ming have ever been in the audience as a purely objective observer. In order to provide the paper with a play criticism of high standing, we have persuaded Miss La Nor Lombard to be the critic for last week’s production of "The Madwoman of Chaillot.” Miss Lombard wrote not as an instructor but as a plav critic. * * * The Madwoman of Chaillot, as it was produced last week, was an intelligently conceived and executed production. All aspects were well-handled. The costumes and sets were imaginative and offered a fine background for Giradoux. Perhaps the first act s...
THIS TIME [Newspaper Article] — Occidental — 12 December 1952
THIS TIME Last night my phone rang and when I answered it the voice at the other end said, “Ho ho ho. This is Santa Claus. What do you want for Christmas?” I hardlyhad to wait for him to finish before I said, “About three solid weeks of ininterrupted time to catch up on all this blasted home work.” — 1 I chuckled to myself—l'm a smart one, I am—l knew it was my boss wanting me to put in some extra time over the va’cation. “Well, that’s too bad,’ 1 said the voice, becoming undisguised. “Im going to the mountains and I thought maybe you could come along.” My heart sank as I recognized the voice of my best friend. And my best friend has a cabin at Big Bear which will not be occupied by me because of my big mouth. If I settle back and rationalize, I can readily admit that I have more than enough studying to keep me busy until way into next year. And I’ll have to work too. My boss didn’t call —he left a note. Today seems far from anything like Christmas. I have trouble adopting the holid...

Zeeman Offers Personal Help; Draff Requested After Holiday [Newspaper Article] — Occidental — 12 December 1952
Zeeman Offers Personal Help; Draff Requested After Holiday Entrants tentatively planning to enter the annual Forest Lawn Memorial Journalism Awards contest were urged this week to use leisure vacation time to their best advantage by Hank Dickson, president of Alpha Phi Gamma, local journalism fraternity. Interested students met yesterday during assembly hour with Ray Zeeman, Los Angeles Times writer, who is acting as “coach” for local contestants in the compettiion. Zeeman went over outstanding entries from last year’s contest with the group, pointing out their good and weak points. First Drafts Requested Students at that time were asked to prepare first drafts of one of the two required compositions over the vacation period. After being submitted to Dickson on Monday morning, the drafts will be sent to Zeeman, who will then be able to give personal help and advice to aspirants. The drafts may be left in The Occidental office Monday, January 5, any time up to noon, Dickson said. A t...
Practicing Band Uses Oxy's Field [Newspaper Article] — Occidental — 12 December 1952
Practicing Band Uses Oxy's Field The University of Wisconsin’s 153-piece marching band will arrive on the local premises late this month when the Badger horn-tooters will plan a meeting with the Trojan organization in the “Battle of the Bands’’ for the halftime Rose Bowl classic, January 1. The Badgers will arrive early December 28 and plan to depart at midnight, January 1. The marching combo will work out on the baseball field, according to Miss Janet Hoit, manager of residence. This is due to the fact that the Patterson greensward will be under reconditioning and that the recently reseeded Bell Field is not yet ready for rough service. The Badgers will bed down in the Swan and Wylie dormitories for their four-night stay.
