Sad [Newspaper Article] — Occidental — 27 February 1953
Sad Dear Readers, We find that before beginning the theme of this week's column on the social doings at Oxy, it might be fair to warn you that even though our material on the outward glance appears to be embittered, prejudiced, and cynical, we do not truly mean to speak with tongues of vipers, but that we merely wish to hold your attention for a few momments. We have discovered that the two best ways to do that are either through a discussion of sex, or through the medium of sarcasm with, its subsequent soul-bearing. Since our knowledge of the former is somewhat scanty, we have chosen the latter as our theme simply to relieve some of the boredom that the writing up of the usual weekly trivia instills in us. As you undoubtedly know by now— if you have read this column with any degree of sensitivity—that we as society scribes find that life among the headhunters of Eagle Rock is not the gentle bed of roses that the catalogue and Lew Bowman would have you believe. In fact, there are a ...

‘Blarney Ball’ Themes Coed Hop Come one, come all to the “Blarney Ball.” What is It you ask? Why it’s going to be the greatest social event of the season; the annual Co-Ed Hop to be held in the student union March 14th. A St. Patrick’s Day theme has been chosen for the event this year. That means we should see a lot of originality in the traditional corsages the girls make for their dates. By the way, in case you haven’t heard, this is one of those occasions when the boys have the fun of waiting for that all important phone call. The costume will be dressy dress, dark suits and party dresses. Music is being furnished by Keith Williams and his orchestra. Tickets will see for $2.00 per couple. Sponsored by AWS, the following special committees have been chosen to organize the “Blarney Ball.” Heading these committees are Joanne Bennett and Marilyn Fair, decorations; Janet Shively, bids and ticket sales; Carol Reddy, refreshments; and Dottle Reltzell, publicity.

Track Season Opens Bengals, Poets Expected To Dominate SCIC Relays By BERT WOODRUFF All loyal Tigers should face Mecca and use their mystic amulets to conjure up some real George magic, for tomorrow afternoon the Oxy thinclads will embark upon their 1953 spike campaign. At 1:30, leather-lung-ers from Oxy, Whittier, Pomona, Cal Tech and Redlands will assemble to battle for blue ribbons in the annual SCIC Relays. This stellar spike-fest, to be staged at Whittier, will be a dog fight all the way, with at least two or three men in contention for the bacon in each event. As things shape up now, Whittier, with its great distance runners, is favored to score heavily in the running races, while Oxy and Pomona rate as co-favorites in the field events. This year’s edition of the SCIS Relays will be a far cry from last year’s Oxy runaway. Most of the afternoon’s slate of events are loaded with competition.

Golfers Score 28»8 Victory Against SB [Newspaper Article] — Occidental — 27 February 1953
Golfers Score 28»8 Victory Against SB Occidental’s golf team returned from Santa Barbara last week with mixed emotions. They couldn’t help being pleased with their-decisive 28 to 8 win over the Santa Barbara team, but they were somewhat chagrined over the poor quality of their play just the same. Oxy plays host to a rugged UCLA outfit next Tuesday on the beautiful Oakmont course in Glendale. Oxy had anticipated an easy victory, and they were so right. Bu’ they had also looked forward to some good golf on their part, and on this point they were quite wrong. Mediocre With one exception, the Oxy linkmen ranged from poor to mediocre. This single deviation was the brilliant play of Lee Dudley. Lee played a steady and safe game, scoring an admirable 77. Dudley, who was playing in the No. 3 position, turned in the best game by far, in easily winning the limit of six points. Others to win all six were John Gaines and Roger Harwey. They were followed closely by John Argue and Tom Peterson, w...

Mt. Sac Falls Before Steady Frosh Efforts [Newspaper Article] — Occidental — 27 February 1953
Mt. Sac Falls Before Steady Frosh Efforts By DOUG HAWKES Coach Dick Wells’ frosh spikesters overcame darkness, a fast-dropping temperature and a highly touted Mt. San Antonio JC track crew to start off the 1953 cinder campaign with a sweet 67 to 64 victory, last Friday, on the losers’ oval. The slim win margin failed to tell the real story, however, the Tigers having sewed up a sure margin with the running of the 220 low hurdles. ■ Fine Depth The Tigerkits showed some fine depth in the weight events, and it was in this department that the fracus was decided. The Bengal first year men swept the shot put with Jim Mathias, Tom Meyer and Don Lyons finishing in that order. Mathias came back with a fine toss of 138 ft % in. in the discus throw to grab another blue ribbon and was closely followed by Kelly Hester who snared place money. Mathias had to settle for a tie with speedster Larry Newquist for top Black and Orange scoring honors, however. Newquist sped to a flashing 9.9 win in the c...
