The juniors presented an old-fashioned melodrama and the seniors presented the hazards of the life of a student
"Px&i&ectMy [Newspaper Article] — Occidental — 20 February 1953
"Px&amp;i&amp;ectMy By Jo an Davis Back again after a lonnnng vacation, and all ready to turn over a new leaf, and really try hard to bang out a good column this time. This issue of the Occidental should really be a ripping, exciting, news-packed epistle, since so much rest'has preceded its publication, (either that or a sleepy one). Even though it seems like we’ve been back for three months, it was only two weeks ago that Registration was drawing to a close. Ahhhh ■ Registra: the only example of mass confusion that can compare with the cooler when chocolate chip ice cream is on the men. ' Seriously, (just for a minute) may I congratulate Homey Ufholtz and the entire ASOC on the very convenient ASOC calendar, which was recently handed out to the students. This convenient, pocket-sized veritable telephone book of informatio will certainly be a boon for those of us who find It difficult to remember our own meetings. Have you noticed—the telegram from General Van Fleet ...

Melonmen Meet Redlands • Second Place at Stake, Recall Poet Heartbreaker [Newspaper Article] — Occidental — 20 February 1953
Melonmen Meet Redlands • Second Place at Stake, Recall Poet Heartbreaker Coach Bill Anderson’s basketball quintet squares off with Redlands tonight in the Citrus Belt city with second place in the SCIC at stake. The Tigers are still brooding over last week’s hearbreaking loss to the Whittier Poets and will be out to knock the Bulldogs off of their second-place perch. And if the Tiger basketeers are as hot on the floor and the boards tonight as they were against La Verne earlier in the week, they’ll not only beat the Bulldogs for the second time this year, but they’ll be right back in the race for runner-up honors to the Whittier Poets in the SCIC flag chase. Scare Poets Last Saturday night the Oxy casabamen threw a real scare into the league-leading Poets. Leading by 11 points early in the fourth quarter, Whittier struggled desperately through the last eight minutes to finally subdue a pack of snarling, clawing Occidental Tigers, 6360, to virtually sew up the SCIC basketball crown. ...

Earlybirds Get Jump on Bengal Horsehide Crew [Newspaper Article] — Occidental — 20 February 1953
Earlybirds Get Jump on Bengal Horsehide Crew . Twelve early-bird members of coach Bill Anderson’s horsehide contingent have been conditioning themselves for the past two weeks in preparation for the start of regular workouts on Monday. All those interested in the baseball wars should report to the training quarters under the bleachers to Coach Anderson Monday afternoon at 3 p.m. Those who have jumped the gun are outfielders Murray Via, Bill Rodman and Pat Delaney; infielders Terry Vargo, Gordon Bonetto, Ken Walters, Jim Burt; catcher Ray Todd, and pitchers Russ Groat, Frank Bennett and Bruce Cathcart. Bill Anderson’s henchmen are hoping for a great season. The Bengals will be packing plenty of power at the plate but as of now are lacking a sufficient mound staff. Next week Bill will lead his crew through batting practice, fielding drills and running activity. Additional players coming out Monday are expected to swell the early arrivals. The first tilt is set for March 6 against Glen...
Divot Diggers Travel to SB [Newspaper Article] — Occidental — 20 February 1953
Divot Diggers Travel to SB The Occidental golf team will start its season play today. The group will travel to Santa Barbara to play the University of California at Santa Barbara, on the host team’s home course, the Montecito Country Club. This is a practice match for Coach Dick Thompson’s men and will provide an opportunity for them to get back into the “feel” of the game. Competition for places on the team has been rigorous this year, with fifteen aspirants fighting for the six places on the playing team. With seven returning lettermen, the outlook is very impressive. The club is presently led by two-year letterman, John Argue, whose game has recently improved greatly, and to date boasts an impressive 69 on the team’s home course, Oakmont Country Club. This is a very good score on any course, but is particularly outstanding on the long, narrow and deceptive Oakmont layout. Following Argue, come six returning lettermen: John Gaines, Lee Dudley, Don Fulton, Roger Harway and Tom Pete...
Peeping Tom [Newspaper Article] — Occidental — 20 February 1953
Peeping Tom By Tom Peterson Well, folks, “you all” are going to have to contend with a new sports editor this semster as the Hawkman done flew the coop leaving me holding the tailfeathers wonderingly. It is going to be a difficult job to maintain the accurate and complete coverage the Hawkman has given “you all” during the past semester. But we, the sports staff, aim to do our best in keeping you up to date on what’s going on in the sports world about the Oxy campus during the coming weeks. But onward, for Peeping Tom has been listening at the keyholes of some well-known publicity addicts across the hall from his well-worn desk. We are happy to report that "Bengal'' Bill Anderson, director of athletics at Occidental College, has been named to serve on the National Advisory Television Committee for the N.A.I.A. last week. The N.A.1.A., representing 450 colleges and universities, has formed this committee to solve the television problem which has confronted the athletic departments of...
Track Outlook Brightens as Prospects Flood Patterson [Newspaper Article] — Occidental — 20 February 1953
Track Outlook Brightens as Prospects Flood Patterson By BERT WOODRUFF A recent visitor to Occidental remarked, on gazing over the green expanse of Patterson Playground, “Well, I see the track season is under way. But how is the team going to work out with that mob standing out there?” Mob?!! Why pshaw, man, that’s the team!!! : Yes, sir, Coach Payton Jordan was literally engulfed in wellfined track shoes as over 100 prospects flooded the local cinderpaths. A sports reporter is suposed to be an unbiased creature, but this writer suggests that for the relief from that sedentary feeling acquired from book-wormitis, our readers should pound themselves vigorously on the back for having chosen Oxy as their alma mater. When 1/7 of all the men in a school turn out for track alone, It’s really something to get excited about. With that kind of school spirit, Oxy can’t help but come out on top in many fields of endeavor, athletic or otherwise. Miller Ineligible The hopes of this year’s track c...

San Antonio JC tracksters this afternoon, in the opening dual mqet of the year for the Oxy first-year men. The “ 7 : istarting time is set for 3 p.m. I Coach Dick Wells will be counting heavily upon Larry Newquist, a sprinter and AllGIF hurdler from Woodrow Wilson high school of Long Beach; Jim Mathias, a potentially great weight man fror Tulare, Calif.; Ed Shinn, All-City half-miler from Dorsey high; Tom Meyers, All-City shot putter for Eagle Rock high; and Hal Hurley, sensational distance man from Boston. With these boys as a strong nucleus, Jhe 1953 freshman aggregation looks like a top-notch contender for the coming SCIC crown. Friday’s get-together should show just what the Tigerbabes will have to throw against a tough 1953 schedule, which includes the perennially strong USC Trobabes. Other possible poi...
Musclemen Open Season Saturday In Evening Meet With Cal Poly [Newspaper Article] — Occidental — 20 February 1953
Musclemen Open Season Saturday In Evening Meet With Cal Poly Coach Roger Burke’s team opens the 1953 gymnastic season tomorrow evening when they tangle with Cal Poly of San Luis Obispo in the Oxy emporium at 7 p.m. Everyone is encouraged to turn out and watch the Bengal musclemen in their first appearance at home. This year’s team is composed of an unknown quality and quantity. Coach Burke will know just how his team stands after Saturday night’s tussle.

Paul will center his talents around tumbling. Worcester, an experienced gymnast, will participate in the parallel bars. Last week John turned in an excellent performance on the parallels when he placed fourth in the novice AAU meet. Conant is the ace tumbler.

Phi Gams Run Off With Irackfest, SAE's Close to KZ's for Second [Newspaper Article] — Occidental — 20 February 1953
Phi Gams Run Off With Irackfest, SAE's Close to KZ's for Second Phi Gamma Delta kept in the running for the intramural crown by carrying off the track and field championship this week on the local oval. The SAE’s looked hard to beat after the field event points were totaled, scoring 12 digits to the 8 2/3 points racked up by PGD and Swan Hall. But in the running events the Fijis and the Kappa Sigs had it all to themselves, each racking up 28 markers while the SAE’s faded to third place with 16 track points. Perfect weather greeted the IM, athletes on Monday when the field event finals and running prelims were held. Although no records fell, the performances were exceptional. Foot Margin In the broad jump, competition ran high as a little more than a foot separated the scoring first five men. John Amy, Swan Hall, long-leaped onehalf inch over 20 feet to take away the blue ribbon. Frosh gridder Rod Newcomb, Wylie, jumped 19’ 5” to annex second while Stan Weston, §AE, Dan Oredson, PGD,...
★ Just 'Taint So—Really [Newspaper Article] — Occidental — 20 February 1953
★ Just 'Taint So —Really Like many red-blooded American collegians, we are in the habit of turning to the comic page of a certain local morning daily. Usually the only thing that boils over is the coffee. But for the past few weeks our blood has been boiling. And all because of Mary Worth. It seems the good woman is engaged as a housemother for one Pi Omega sorority house. Now we don’t object to Mi's. Worth’s position. She’s always behaved pretty decently and should be a credit to her new profession. What we do object to are the people with whom she is coming in contact. They just aren’t “typical” college students. The hero, Cliff Mitchell, is an all-around guy. So all-around he is unbelievable. He not only is editor of the campus paper, but a star athlete, musician, president of his class, member of the honor society, war veteran, tall and handsome. This is typical ? The vamp, Libby Stone, is rich, beautiful, spoiled, a snob who “can get any man on campus” and who goes around weari...
BOX ONE [Newspaper Article] — Occidental — 20 February 1953
BOX ONE By Red Gresham These past few days we Americans have been occupied with the birthdays of two of our most famous presidents. Yet too many of - us have not been aware of an even bigger celebration. Beginning on the fifteenth and continuing through the twenty-second, the United States was joined with nations throughout the world in commemorating the twenty-fifth anniversary year of World Brotherhood Week. This gigantic program is under the direction of the National Conference of Christians and Jews. It has as Its goal the dissemination of a greater feeling of respect and brotherhood among all peoples of the world. This respect of one man for another without regard to his color, creed or religion is the core of our freedom. It is the basic concept which Brotherhood Week is trying to further or plant, as the case may be. The National Brotherhood Conference realized long ago that the best way to combat bigotry and hate was by a program stressing the moral content of democracy. The...
Tiger Growls [Newspaper Article] — Occidental — 20 February 1953
Tiger Growls Play Fair, Profs According to regulations set up by the civ department students are -allowed time until the bell rings to enter lectures. That’s fair enough. But just because a lecturer decides to jump the gun and begin early is no excuse to close the door before the bell rings. This is very unfair and unjust. Either change the rules, or abide by them! An Irate Sophomore A Question Why, oh why, can’t we be dismissed from the RO drill periods on time just once in a while? A Hungry Cadet
'Biggest Show' Good But Isn't Biggest [Newspaper Article] — Occidental — 20 February 1953
'Biggest Show' Good But Isn't Biggest By RICHARD NORTON To all the millions of words that have been written in praise of Oklahoma, let me add a few more. I hope that many of you were lucky enough to see it during the recent L.A.-Pasadena run. This viewer thinks it was just perfect—all the way—from the percussion effects of the violins to Adoo Annie’s Innuendoes. Well, that was Oklahoma, but the "Biggest Show" was a different story. Like many “allstar" conglomerations (with wonderful exceptions like flick - erville's ’The Bad and the Beautiful"), the "Biggest Show" just wasn't very tall. It was approximately one-fifth music and four-filths crud. The really big names, Stan Kenton and Nat "King” Cole, successfully came through, but even they had their weak moments. If a person had heard nothing but "Collaboration,” I could understand why they might dislike Kenton’s music. But most of his selections were handled with finesse. It was particularly impressive when Lee Konitz brought his al...
BBMraan ' ilfflHMfiWwi** ! "ill [Newspaper Article] — Occidental — 20 February 1953
BBMraan ' ilfflHMfiWwi** ! "ill With the second week of the semester having passed with relative calm, it is obvious that the student body is well ensconsed in what might be termed “serious academic endeavor.” Needless to say, the realization of this fact is enough to depress anyone. And so, with benevolence in my heart, may I offer to take your mind briefly off your troubles by telling you some of mine? Everyone, I suppose, has a relative or a friend who at one time or another has bought a new house. And when they have bought it they inevitably move their belongings into It and attempt adjustment. I am now actively engaged In this profoundly distressing activity. May I take this opportunity to announce that all the difficulties you hear concerning new houses are completely true. It was not long ago that I listened with the rest of my English class to the daily lamentations of Dr. Kurtz who was undergoing a similar trauma at the time.' It was common for him to preface his lecture wi...
