BASKETBALL CREW WINDS UP SEASON WITH POMONA Bulldog, Beaver Setbacks Sting Oxy in Last Week [Newspaper Article] — Occidental — 27 February 1953
BASKETBALL CREW WINDS UP SEASON WITH POMONA Bulldog, Beaver Setbacks Sting Oxy in Last Week By TOM PETERSON Smarting from two stinging setbacks at the hands of Redlands and Caltech during the past week, Occidental’s basketball brigade will attempt to close the ’53 season on a winning note tomorrow evening when they engage the Pomona Sagehens in the Pasadena CC emporium at 9 p.m. Although both teams are deeply entrenched in the basement of the SCIC, the game promises to be a lulu just the same. For when these two ancient rivals hook up, anything can happen and usually does. Bulldog Revenge Last Friday night the Bulldogs gained revenge for a loss suffered earlier in the season to the Bengals, as they romped to a 78 to 58 win. Actually, Redlands won the game in the first quarter when they cut loose with one of the most torrid exhibitons of long-distance shooting citrus slickers had ever seen. As the first quarter opened up so did the Bulldogs, and in the space of ten minutes the prides...
Gymnasts Look Strong, Crush Cal Poly 55-35 [Newspaper Article] — Occidental — 27 February 1953
Gymnasts Look Strong, Crush Cal Poly 55-35 It looks as though Occidental’s gymnasts are going to offer plenty of competition to their opponents this year after last Saturday night’s stellar performance against Cal Poly of San Luis Obispo. The Bengal musclemen smothered the men from San Luis Obispo by a count of 55 to 35. The Tigers were sparked by sophomore Don Lantz, who racked up the amazing total of 23 points. Don was brilliant as he scored firsts in the high bar, tumbling and the all-around event. Lantz followed up with seconds in the long horse and the free exercise. He also placed third in the rings and the trampoline. Wallis Climbs Brent tying for first with the Mustang’s Dick Migliazzo in the rope climb, and John Sonnischson, capturing third place in the twenty foot climb, got Oxy rolling to their smashing victory. From here on out the Tigers were never headed. All told, the Tigers collected seven firsts out of ten events. Although the Bengals won by an overwhelming margin, ...
Turnout Slim For Mermen, Says Mentor [Newspaper Article] — Occidental — 27 February 1953
Turnout Slim For Mermen, Says Mentor "Unless a few more men can be induced to come out, this year’s version of the Tiger swimming team is apt to be characterized by a serious lack of depth,” says new swim mentor, Neil Palmer. Palmer, who is replacing coach Roy Dennis, now on sabbatical leave, is a graduate of USC. While on the Trojan swim team he specialized as a freestyler in the sprints. In addition to his coaching duties here, he is currently teaching in Alhambra. The first meet of the season, a practice affair, will take place next Wednesday at 4 p.m. in Taylor Pool, when the Bengal mermen host the Los Angeles high school aggregation. Last year the Tigers were able to out-swim a L.A. high group four times its sizes by a score of 44-31. This year, the encounter should prove an exciting one to watch. LACC Next Next on the agenda is a meet next Friday afternoon with the LACC Cubs in the Tigers’ home pool. "As it stands now, the team will be built around returning lettermen Fred Kro...
Finale Staged By Bucketfoabes [Newspaper Article] — Occidental — 27 February 1953
Finale Staged By Bucketfoabes Occidental’s frosh basketballers, victors four times in eight games, really got into the act over the past month as they wound up their 1953 season by blasting their last three foes—Pierce JC, 63 to 42; Cal Poly, 85 to 40; and winding up against Caltech last Tuesday night, 66 to 57. The bucketbabos really had their fill of bad luck in their first five games winning only one while losing to Compton by a single tally 51 to 50; edged by Redlands 67 to 65; dropped by Pomona 49 to IS, and by Whittier 62 to 56. It was really a tough-luck year for Coach Don Marvin’s frosh club. Still they have plenty to be proud of, for it is very seldom that you see a team drop four of its first five tilts and still come back fighting harder than ever and win their final three tilts. Center Kelly Hester led this year’s Tiger scoring parade with 113 points in sight games for a 14.1 average. Right on his heels was a fellow from Eagle Rock high school, Mike Lomon, who bucketed 1...

★ A Bitter Bargain? [Newspaper Article] — Occidental — 27 February 1953
★ A Bitter Bargain? “Red alert” is the traditional warning that bombers are on the way and that it is time to man the anti-aircraft guns. Recently the red alert flashed for academic Institutions in the United States. Senator Joseph McCarthy told the magazine, U.S. News and World Report, “We (the Senate committee on government operations) are going into the educational system.” The Wisconsin Republican says he will seek “Communists,” and more particularly, “Communist thinkers.” The purpose, he maintains, will not be to stifle academic freedom, but to promote it. We are disappointed that the Senator does not give more credit to American college students. Nearly all of them, we believe, are able to tell the difference between red and white. ■ We do not deny that “Communist thinkers” exist on some American campuses. But we have a suspicion that the following they may have is limited to a small circle. That, we believe, is exactly what the Senator will find. Perhaps such an investigation...
BOX ONE [Newspaper Article] — Occidental — 27 February 1953
BOX ONE By R«d Gresham Maybe it’s the weather this early spring could have something to do with it. However, that would be taking the easy way out. The fact is it’s Just a bad habit we've gotten into. It’s that apathetic “Let George do It” attitude that seems to overwhelm so many people about this time every year. There are many manifestations of this attitude but perhaps one of the most flagrant is toward intercollegiate athletics. The varsity basketball team has lost a couple of close ones lately, games that went right down to the wire, nip and tuck. They could easily have gone either way, and yet we lost them both. One big reason we dropped them was because we didn’t have the support from the student body that it takes to give that little extra drive to pull the close ones out of the fire. With the exception of one group of fellows on campus that follow the team wherever it goes, student attendance at basketball games has been practically nil. No matter where we go or who we play...
Tiger Growls [Newspaper Article] — Occidental — 27 February 1953
Tiger Growls A Plea!!! Well, for pete’s sake, what’s with the Oxy women? Here it is, only two weeks before the Co-ed Hop.

Don’t they want the masculine charm represent? We’re all alone, by the telephone. How about it? The Wylie Phone Watchers Don't Forget Us We have formed a group too. The Swan Society of Hopefuls
Your Civ Notes May End Up in Labrary Display [Newspaper Article] — Occidental — 27 February 1953
Your Civ Notes May End Up in Labrary Display By HELEN ROBINSON Attention, hopeful young authors and poets! Save those bits of wisdom scribbled on old civ notes and laundry bills! The Occidental library may someday proudly collect your embryonic manuscripts as it does those of Robinson Jeffers, poet, an exalted Oxy alumnus. Over 200 items by and about Jeffers, who graduated from Oxy in 1905 at the age of 18, form what is probably the most complete Jeffers collection in existence. This collection, contributed by Albert M. Bender, the Jeffers family, and friends, consists of rare, first, and trade editions, autographed and inscribed copies, galley proofs, typewritten and microfilmed theses, letters, photographs, manuscripts, and holographs. Tucked among valuable books of poetry in a special case are verses and ideas hastily written on old envelopes, bills, and other scraps of paper. In the periodical room of the library is Rem Remsen’s large oil painting of Jeffers standing by the ocea...

Uncle Joe Is Hand Holding with Peron [Newspaper Article] — Occidental — 27 February 1953
Uncle Joe Is Hand Holding with Peron By STEVE SALSBURY One of the most important events of the postwar world occurred in Moscow last month. As usual it was blotted off the front page by that sensation of the century, the Jelke vice trial. This event, which has scarcely been noticed here in the United States, was the conclusion of a mutual trade treaty between Russia and Argentina. The Argentine ambassador announced that his country looks forward to much closer cooperation between the Russian Bear and the country on the Rio de la Plata. Argentina’s marriage to Russia (in an economic sense) marks a signal diplomatic victory for Joe Stalin and a tremendous headache for the United States. To understand the Argentine problem we must examine Argentina’s role in the Western Hemisphere. Argentina as a nation is second only to Brazil in power and prestige in Latin America, Her geographic position makes her a competitor with the United States. This is because Argentina, like most South Americ...

LP' or 45 ? A Big Question to Ponder [Newspaper Article] — Occidental — 27 February 1953
LP' or 45 ? A Big Question to Ponder By RICHARD NORTON If you keep up with the world of phonograph records (a multi-million-dollar industry), perhaps you remember the “speed war” that went on a few years ago. You'll recall that Columbia brought out the long-playing record and RCA gave us the seven-inch ”45." It was confusing for a while, but out of the chaos we got the benefits of records that are virtually unbreakable, easier to store and much better sounding than their predecessors. I want to tell you about my own reactions. I found that long-playing records are best for classical music and extended jazz works. I like "45” for most jazz, popular and short classical pieces. The main reason that I like "45’s” are that they provide selectivity. Now let’s put it in terms of you. Suppose you have an LP record of Stan Kenton’s "Milestones.” On one side are the selections, "Artistry in Rhythm” and “Peanut Vendor," but in between are a couple of items you probably won’t care for. However,...
'paux 'Pat [Newspaper Article] — Occidental — 27 February 1953
'paux 'Pat By MING AND UTZINGER It is not surprising that so many people use movies as an escape mechanism. The only trouble with this is that when we go to the show intending to “forget” our troubles we tend to leave our critical facilities at home. In doing this we neglect the greatest source of pleasure that comes from viewing a really good film. For, regardless of what certain hedonists will tell you, knowing WHY you are enjoying a certain movie is many times better than simply enjoying it. In this way we can pick our movies with greater discrimination and save much money and time. One good way of critizing a movie is to compare it with the best that have been made in the past. There is a little theater at 366 North La Cienega called the Coronet Louvre which specializes in bringing back to the screen some of the greatest examples of film art produced in this and other countries. This theater does not advertise. You have to go there and sign up for a mailed program which comes ou...
Pistol Packin' Pint-sized Pete Holds Up Tiger in Line of Duty [Newspaper Article] — Occidental — 27 February 1953
Pistol Packin' Pint-sized Pete Holds Up Tiger in Line of Duty By bob luippold As I strolled down a walkway behind the athletic field, I heard two gunshots. On one side of a wire fence, time trials for track were being set off by a blank pistol; on the other side, a little fellow with a lethal cap pistol was firing away. This miniature marksman— Pete, his name was—is one of the many youngsters with a front yard facing the far side of Patterson Field. Pete lives in one of the Veterans Housing units. After putting up my hands at Pete’s command, I proceded with my job of looking over the Veterans Housing situation. On campus there are 57 veterans’ apartments —35 the Campus Road area, and 22 “around the hill” on Range View Drive. The Campus Road units were constructed in 1946 by the Federal Housing Authority, and were transferred to College ownership in 1948. The Range View units were built by the state of California In 1948 and are operated on an agency basis by the College. At first, a...
THIS TIME [Newspaper Article] — Occidental — 27 February 1953
THIS TIME If this week my thoughts seem disjointed and my writing a bit uneven, you must understand what has happened to me. I have suddenly realized that I am mingling in the midst of Communists! Yes, real live ones! And what is more, there is good reason to suspect that I am a Red myself! But let me collect my thoughts. Let me be rational, even though this is an age in which hysteria is in vogue. It was not long ago that I talked to a friend just recently returned from the armed services. It was there that he was instructed on how to "spot a subversive.” If he related It correctly and my memory serves me well, most of the occupants of these ivy-covered halls will be kneeling before McCarthy or some other malevolent inquisitor. Check yourself and your friends on the following clues given to detect a dangerous Red: 1. They are often young and pleasant, of the intellectual class, and have a wide knowledge of current affairs. 2. They profess to have concern for humanity, and the probl...
