Student Store To Be Remodeled [Newspaper Article] — Occidental — 3 October 1952
Student Store To Be Remodeled Because Oxy students seem to show thorough approval toward self-service in the college bookstore, remodeling of the store on a serve-yourself basis will probably begin in early October, states Miss Alma M. Creager, bookstore and student activities director. Self-service was inaugurated last summer, and the store layout is still in an adolescent stage. After remodeling, however, special shelves for purses and books will replace the glass display cases to the right of the front entrance. The cement-beamed ceiling will be modernized with sound proof material, and the thick columns in the rear will support revolving shelves for store items. Students will enter through two turnstiles and leave through a third. Stock will include the same items now sold, but a wider selection will be offered, Miss Creager concluded.
'Good Book' Made Gooder [Newspaper Article] — Occidental — 3 October 1952
'Good Book' Made Gooder A stack of Bibles 24 miles high was released last Tuesday in commemoration of the 500 th anniversary of the first printed Bible. Called the “biggest book publishing project in history,” the first printing of the Revised Standard Version of the Holy Bible used 1000 tons of paper, 2000 gallons of ink, and will make a thousand copies. The RSV of the New Testament was published in 1946. A far cry from 3000 years ago when shepherds gathered around the campfire on the hills of Palestine and listened to the story telling about Abraham and Moses, the language of this new Bible is reportedly modern and yet holds most of the beauty of the King James Version. This version has eliminated the confusion of oldstjde biblical language. The “thees” and “thous” are conspicuous by their absence and so are the "---sts” and “---eths.” All words are used with their latest meaning so that the Scriptures may be even more illuminating to modern man. Most bookstores and churches are n...

'P'laafeectuta [Newspaper Article] — Occidental — 3 October 1952
'P'laafeectuta By Joan Davis Digging was pretty good this week—lots of events coming up and lots of busy dates just past. Biggest news in the just-recent-past was the more than 950 dinners served to the biggest crowd a B-B-Q has ever hosted. Doug Bowman did an extra special job on Community Sing and "Lion Hunt." Hero of the evening, however, was the lion himself who responded after everyone had whispered "Hear anything?" "Listen . . ." with a soulful Moooooooooo. That brought the roof down. This one is too good for students to miss: At the end of last term a paper with instructions to discussion group leaders in History of Civ was printed, so that instructors might give directions for map quizzes. About half-way down the page, the following direction appeared; “At the end of 20 minutes, tell students to fold in two and pass in their papers.” Students no doubt feel like “folding in two,” at such a moment but who ever heard of a Prof telling them to do so? Plug! Friday night being our...

'Witt £ttcC [Newspaper Article] — Occidental — 3 October 1952
'Witt £ttcC It has been brought to our attention that a more sophisticated brand of humor is desired by the Occidental student body. However, after reading back issues of all the New Yorkers, Esquires and Fangs, we still could find nothing fitting to plagerize for your tender orbs. We will be forced to continue in our own vein of humor, hoping someday we will accidentally stumble on something faintly amusing. To begin with, a plug for the fraternity Round Robin dances tomorrow night would seem fitting. For all the fellows busily rounding up dates, here's a poem in honor of the occasion; I wish I were a kangaroo Despite his funny stances. I'd have a place to put the junk My girl brings to the dances!! The Bar-B-Q last weekend brought a lot of Oxy men out of hiding to show their abilities at steer riding, calf roping, and bull throwing. Enjoying these activities were: Nancy Foster and Dudley Frank; Jan Johnson, Bill Fochler; Marcia Chamness, Jim Brown; Rusty Lynch, Jim Ensign; Dotty F...
