Stanford, Trojans Hilight 1953 Oxy Cinder Schedule By BERT WOODRUFF Taking time out from his job as Oxy’s Official Leather-Lung Builder, Coach Payton Jordan released the information that Oxy track fans are in for another slam-bang season. Oxy has arranged many great meets with some of the nation’s strongest teams. This figures to be a hardfought year for Oxy's thinelads, with 15 members of last year's stellar team having departed via graduation; but with good support from all you loyal Tigers, this oould be another in a long line of glorious spikester seasons. Following is a look at Oxy’s competition for 1953. February 28—On the last day in February, the Bengals will trek to Whittier to participate in their opening meet, the SCIC Conference Relays.

Barnes Places First in Sugar Bowl Spikefest [Newspaper Article] — Occidental — 9 January 1953
Barnes Places First in Sugar Bowl Spikefest John Barnes, a trackman who will go down in Oxy track annals as one of the swiftest hall nailers the West Coast has ever seen, continued his winning way by capturing his specialty in the Sugar Bowl Sports Car-&lt; nival on December 28. Long Jawn, showing the stretch running form that won. him an Olympic berth, came from far back in the pack to win going away in the sparkling early season time of 1m 54.15. Barnes’ burst of speed in the final yards was considered the most exciting race of the day, say observers. The Tiger spikester was forced to shed the Black and Orange apparel for the kahki covering of the U.S. Army late in the fall. He is now stationed at Ft. Ord, California. D.C. Sees Mao Word has just been released by Coach Payton Jordan that Bob McMillen, another Olympic star, will be entered in the annual indoor Evening Star Games in Washington, D.C. McMil leu’s workrout indicate that he will more than hold his own against the...
Honor Cum Laude [Newspaper Article] — Occidental — 9 January 1953
Honor Cum Laude What’s with the Honor System? Why do we have it? It sounds great, sure, but what good is it to us? What’s the pitch? Right now there are lots of little things the Honor System does for us. When you start a final and the first question makes you tie up, you can sneak out and relax with a drink of water or a cigarette. You don’t have to cart ten pounds of books around with you all day long. You can lay them down anywhere, and when you come back they’ll be there. You can leave that sweater in the cooler when the day warms up. These are little things, however. , The Honor System is a way of life. By living with honor we build a life that is good—for us and for others. We earn the respect of others. Most important, we keep our own self-respect. But like so many good things, the Honor System does not come easy. Oxy is one of the few colleges willing to take a chance on their students’ honor. Of course it’s important to pass exams, and sometimes to those who are far behind,...
BOX ONE [Newspaper Article] — Occidental — 9 January 1953
BOX ONE By Red Gresham My column this week is directed toward a smaller group than usual. However, I think that the discussion which follows might be of general interest to the student body at large. This year, as in many preceding ones, the ASOC is sponsoring and backing financially a musical show. However, a great many hours of discussions and meetings have gone into this final decision. The thought had been growing in the minds of some faculty and administrative members during the last few years that perhaps the shows could be improved, from a professional point of view, If the members of our faculty in the departments concerned had more time to devote to helping the student writers and composers. In the past, due to already over-loaded schedules, faculty members have not been able to spend as much time coaching and advising the students as they would have liked. To remedy this situation, a student-faculty committee was set up at the first of this year which adopted the following...
'paax Pad [Newspaper Article] — Occidental — 9 January 1953
'paax Pad By MING AND UTZINGER Faux Pas has no fixed topic, we venture to get our hands on a little bit of everything. This time it is going to be about New York. We concluded that "Vacation in New York” would be as good a topic as any other. Or course, you may obtain enough of the latest news from "The New Yorker”, magazine, but we’re writing about New York anyhow! In general. New Yorkers had a -warm, sunny Christmas, but a white, gloomy New Year's Eve. It started snowing around noon. Twelve hours later all the buses in New York went on strike. New Yorkers, however, found no difficulty in getting around town. Times Square was crowded as ever. At midnight, January 1, 1953, everybody sang "Auld-Lang Syne.” The show season on Broadway this year proved to be unsatisfactory. Quite a few are new, original plays, but they are of little merit. The most exciting and well-spoken of play, however, is the revival of Lilliaij Heilman’s 18-year-old “The Children’s Hour.” It is about two schoolmi...
Bob Keenes' Rhythm Boys Tops in Field [Newspaper Article] — Occidental — 9 January 1953
Bob Keenes' Rhythm Boys Tops in Field By RICHARD NORTON “Who is B K?” Perhaps you’ve seen posters around the campus with “B K” on them and wondered what the score was. Well, here it is; B K stands for Bob Keene. Bob fronts the greatest band in the land Bob played for the 1951 Christmas dance here at Oxy. On Saturday, Dec. 13, 1952, the Keene sound was heard at the Pasadena Civic. And it was a sound that deserves repeated listening. The most impressive thing that particular night was the danceabiilty of the music. Bob skillfully blended his program • with about three or four slow numbers to every fast one. Perhaps it isn't generally understood, but jazz musicians do some of their best work on slow, quiet numbers. Keene illustrated this with smooth numbers like “Embraceable You," delightfully punctuated with bits of modern jazz trumpet. Still, it was the swinging, rocking stuff like the ‘‘Deep Six,” an original, that showed everyone the excitement the band could generate. And while it...
Tiger Growls [Newspaper Article] — Occidental — 9 January 1953
Tiger Growls Tiger Howl The last history of civ 111 subjective bluebopk was to summarize the history of civ 111 term paper. This was fine for those who received “A’s” on the term paper, but for the others. . . . Can’t the civ office think up any questions these days? Indignant Just Too Too! Isn’t there some better place to gaze lovingly into the eyes of your true love besides in the living room of the girls’ dorm? I don’t actually object to lovesick looks, but when it gets beyond that it’s rather too too for the living room. Some displaced Erdmanites. I Wuz Robbed! After planning my vacation work and study schedule to just clear my last final, I come back Monday to find out comprehensives have been changed from February 2 to 3 to January 19-20, the first Monday and Tuesday of testing. I find out that it was a “misprint.” If so, why weren’t we informed sooner? This is unethical, unconstitutional, unacceptable and unscheduled! Dismayed Senior

B3i«aaß [Newspaper Article] — Occidental — 9 January 1953
B3i«aaß Looking at the situation as a whole, I would say that Occidental students could stand some improvement. I have in mind a certain number of slobs whose nasty and unfortunate attitude is rubbing off too heavily on the rest of the Inmates. And the real tragedy is that people are beginning to think that the atmosphere around the campus is as it should be. Ask « few people, "Which is better: friendliness or television?’’ Most of the answers will be In favor of the former. Then why—l want to know —is there so much coldness? Huh! Answer me! One of the above-mentioned ■lobe was introduced to a stranger the other day, and he greeted him with all the warmness of the sneering squinty-eyed distrustful Joe McCarthy. Am I the only one who is alarmed at the increasing trend away from friendship? The whole country seems to be turning against hospitality. You have to be careful these days not to be too friendly. If you are, your reward is a raised eyebrow or some quite uncomplimentary remark...
Guy Dates Doll At Wrong School [Newspaper Article] — Occidental — 9 January 1953
Guy Dates Doll At Wrong School The Michigan State coed who answered the phone was sorry, but they had no one there by that name. "Quit kidding,” said the male voice at the other end. The coed and the male voice argued for about six minutes. The solution was finally found. The young gentleman (from the East) hadn’t made it quite clear to the bus company that he wanted to go to the University of Michigan not Michigan State. How he explained all this to his date waiting in Ann Arbor is more than we can say.
Forest Supplies Shaving Cream, Terrifies Girls [Newspaper Article] — Occidental — 9 January 1953
Forest Supplies Shaving Cream, Terrifies Girls By ELSIE FOREMAN Need any ' shaving cream, toothpicks, soap, shampoo, or false teeth?

Ghosts Whlshln, Utter Strange Sound [Newspaper Article] — Occidental — 9 January 1953
Ghosts Whlshln, Utter Strange Sound By JANICE DEAN Creepy It was! Scary too. No eyes or ears were ever meant to see or hear It. You can bet on that (if you’re the betting kind). It all happened last week, New Year’s Eve to be exact. The whole country was —— -* pretty high. This tale Is higher yet. You don’t have to believe • word. Slam! They all whished In. The room was set lor tea. Ttye walls looked whitened blue as a wind blew the drapes apart. Shadows came irom all sides. Only a faint glow lighted the air. No shapes really! The room was filled with a hundred whisperings, a thousand things. A speaker came to the podium. Some things hushed. Silence, with a breeze In a eucalyptus, blowed over all assembled there. Then, a viewer closed over the eyes, a hearer closed over the ears. Past and future appeared. Like a narrator the voice was ... He said. “Here we see a human bent Follow after, do what’s done.
