oWct& [Newspaper Article] — Occidental — 6 March 1953
o Wct&amp; Dahlings: Why in the devil are you bothering to read this? Is it because you yearn to see your name in print? Or do you seek insight into the peculiar social manners and mores practiced by the Occidental Student Body? Or are you slyly checking up on the off-beat twosome or the double dealing girl friend? Whatever your purpose, it will just hqve to wait a few moments while we expound on a lew items that came to our attention last week. Firstly, there was a Tiger Growl that was published in the Occidental last week that did little to gladden our game hearts. This gross article, written as you all know, by certain men’s residences complaining about their dateless plight for Coed Hop, left us at one moment screaming with insane laughter, while at the next instant found us grinding our teeth in a fit of sublime rage. Only now, after taking ourselves firmly in hand, are we able to view the situation with an air of stoical calm—broken occasionally by a brief spasm of sna...
TRI-MEET TOMORROW! Oxy Thinclads Meet Bulldogs, Beavers in 2nd Meet of Season [Newspaper Article] — Occidental — 6 March 1953
TRI-MEET TOMORROW! Oxy Thinclads Meet Bulldogs, Beavers in 2nd Meet of Season By Bert Woodruff Local track fans will get a chance tomorrow afternoon to see Oxy’s thinclads in their second performance of the season. Tournament Park in Pasadena will be the scene of the battle as Oxy is pitted against the Bulldogs of Redlands and the hosting Cal Tech Engineers. This will actually be the first chance to view the Tiger track - sters in a regular meet for last week’s SCIC relays were just that, while this track fest will see the Tigers participating in all the regular events. The highlight of tomorrow’s activities will probably be the discus, judging by last week’s results.-Redlands’ Valadez copped first place in the SCIC Relays when he tossed the platter 135 feet 6V2 inches. Close behind was George Novinger of Occidental. Valadez, off past performances, will be a favorite to repeat in the discus, but Novinger could come through with a winning effort, not to mention Brayton Norton who too...
Horsehiders Start Season at Burbank [Newspaper Article] — Occidental — 6 March 1953
Horsehiders Start Season at Burbank Coach Bill Anderson’s Occidental horsehiders’ open up the 1953 baseball campaign today when they tackle a strong Glendale CC nine at the Olive Recreational Center in Burbank at 3 p.m. Russ Groat has been given the nod by Coach Anderson to take the hill against the Vaqueros. Groat, who last season had the misfortune of playing second-fiddle to Bob Ashford, one of the greatest hurlers ever to twirl for the Bengals, will be given his big chance this season. Russ, a 6-foot carrot-topped fellow from Downers Grove, Illinois, has a good fast ball along with a fast breaking curve ball. Lacks Control Groat is liable to go a long way if he can only get a little more control. That, at the moment, is the only big weakness Russ now possesses. And if Russ can go about the business of correcting some of his mound flaws and manages to succeed, he may well spark the Tigers to their third consecutive SCIC title and their ninth title under Bill Anderson. Frank Benne...
RECORD KEPT PERFECT BY JORDAN'S TRACKMEN [Newspaper Article] — Occidental — 6 March 1953
RECORD KEPT PERFECT BY JORDAN'S TRACKMEN A strong band of Oxy track and field performers kept Coach Payton Jordan’s undefeated record intact last Saturday, as they handily swamped all comers in the twenty-first running of the All-Conference Relays held at Whittier College. The final tally showed the Bengals with STli, Whittier 21, Pomona 20%, Redlands 13 and Caltech 6. Oxy fans present at the meet could not become too frantic over the Tiger showing, as Coach Payton Jordan used his first-line runners sparingly out of caution against early season mishaps. At any rate the locals made a fine showing in every event they entered. The Whit»tier Poets found opportunity to yell for the first time in many years, when their scanty clads galloped to wins in three of the highlighted relays. Gilliland Fantastic It was in the field events where every Bengal in the Whittier Wigwam found time to irlake with the buccal cavity. The outstanding performance by the Orange and Black came when diminutive K...

FRESHMEN RUN OFF WITH SCIC RELAY MARKS By Jim Terrill Running fast and coasting in the stretch. Occidental’s 1953 edition of the freshman track team startled no one by walking off with top money in the SCIC Relays, held last Saturday afternoon. One of the finest yearling squads in years came within one point of equaling their big brothers’ total, scraping together 5614 markers and doubling the 23 points scored by second place Pomona. The wind blown affair got off to a swift start when Co-captain Larry Newquist churned hi* way to a new record in the century with a 10 flat clocking. “Newk” kicked the last 20 yards to edge Gardner of Whittier and teammates A 1 Kiser and Bill Carling. The mile relay did not turn out to be an Oxy function, however, as it was Pomona all the way. The Tigers were never in the race as the Sagehens romped to a 60 yard victory. Disqualification In the 880 batonfest the Bengal sprinters got together once again to produce their first relay victory only to be dis...

New Additions Make Difference to Swim Mentor Neil Palmer By Hank Dickson The additional of a few more Taylor Pool prospects during the past week has bolstered the roster and morale of the 1953 swimming team considerably, according to Neil Palmer, swim mentor. The boys have been preparing all week for a meet this afternoon with the untried LACC Cubs.

Last week at this time, it didn’t look like we would, but from now on things will be different.” Newcomer Newcomer Tom Hormel will Compete in the 50 and 100 yard freestyle sprint events.

SAGEHENS BOW TO TIGERS IN FINAL BATTLE, 73-56 Seniors Spark Team Win; Golden Nabs Point Honors By Tom Peterson Seniors Baxter Golden, Bruce Gilliland, Wayne Stephanoff, A 1 "Red” Gresham, Bob “Crickett” Dorn and Dick Helbig wound up their Oxy basketball careers on a high note last Saturday night as the Tigers romped to a 73 to 56 victory over a bewildered Pomona Sagehen crew. The finale was witnessed by some 200 screaming Occidental rooters in the Pasadena CC gym. The fray was fast and furious from beginning to end with the outcome never in'doubt except for a few moments late in the third quarter. Pomona, sparked by their little forward Steve Smith, narrowed Oxy’s lead from 17 to 7 points only to see their effort go to naught as the Tigers went on the rampage in the last period. Smith, who was high point man for the evening’s festivities with 22, led the belated Sagehen rally with eight markers. And after Oxy’s great center, Bruce Gilliland, fouled out with eight minutes remaining, ...

ANSON LEADS SCIC SCORERS Fred Anson, Caltech’s tall pivotman, for the second straight season won individual scoring honors in the Southern California Conference cage race. The Alhambran bucketed 167 points in his eight SCIC games for an average of 20.8. Second in the point-making was Steve Smith, stellar Pomona-Clare-mont floorman from Whittier whose singular efforts were not enough to lead the Sagehens to a single league victory. Smith tossed in 130 tallies in eight games. Occidental’s Baxter Golden was barely nosed out for the second spot by Smith as he collected 125 points in eight tilts. Last year, Golden placed ninth in the scoring race with 92 counters. Oxy’s stellar center, Bruce Gilliland, who missed one casaba tilt because of the flu, was nosed out by Whittier’s Jerry Johncox for the number four position. Johncox scored 120 points in eight games for a 15.0 average. Bruce dropped 112 points through the hoop for a good 16.0 average. Bob Gore, the Tiger’s other guard, piled up...
Oxy Golfers Upset UCLA Surprise Laurels „ Given to Bengals As Bruins Fall [Newspaper Article] — Occidental — 6 March 1953
Oxy Golfers Upset UCLA Surprise Laurels „ Given to Bengals As Bruins Fall Occidental’s golf team maintained Its clean slatq Tuesday by defeating the perennially strong UCLA Bruin team at Oakmont. The Tigers weren’t supposed to, but they won a close one, 21 to 15. This victory added unsuspected laurels to the Bengal outfit which seemed to come up for this big one. Next Monday, Oxy and UCLA meet in a return engagement on the Bruins’ home course, Brentwood. The Oxy golfers will hope to use the psychological advantage of this win to offset UCLA’s natural edge. Whatever happens Monday, the Occidental golf team can still be mighty proud of their win last Tuesday. Fulton Shines The champ and chump of last week’s fracas switched about against UCLA. Don Fulton, last week’s only loser, really outdid himself Tuesday. His eagle "three” on the 460-yard eighteenth, sewed up his six point* and the team victory. Nice going, “Dirty.” On the reverse order, Lee Dudley, last week’* star, was the only g...
★ What About YOU? [Newspaper Article] — Occidental — 6 March 1953
★ What About YOU? It seems strange to us that anyone should have to be reminded to save a life. Actually, few of us would hesitate to save another man. On the battle fields, Americans risk their lives time and time again to save comrades who have fallen. ’ However, when it is within the power of any one of us to save a life right here and at no risk, all too few of us volunteer. We have to be reminded and sometimes nagged into saving a fellow American. , It is apparently necessary to attract attention in some way—necessary to prod the campus into remembering that there are men in Korea who desperately need our blood. If such reminders are necessary to save a life, The Occidental is privileged to print them and do some reminding on its own. '
★ Save the Grass! [Newspaper Article] — Occidental — 6 March 1953
★ Save the Grass! Last September the administration spent $l2OO completely renovating and replanting Bell Field. Since theja the green verdure adjoining the Boondocks has become a definite asset to the campus instead of a liability. Word came out last week that beginning April 15, Bell Field would again be subjected to its old rigorous schedule of intramural sports and class activities. This, of course, is what a field is for. But we think it is too bad that after all this trouble and expense, the grass can’t be given the full recommended time of one year to become completely firm and set. The students have waited patiently for quite a while now. We’re sure they wouldn’t mind waiting another month and a half to make sure their new Bell Field stays green.
BOX ONE [Newspaper Article] — Occidental — 6 March 1953
BOX ONE By Red Gresham The Red Cross blood unit is going to be on campus March 16. Nothing would make me happier than for them to have to come back the next day to finish taking pare of all the Occidental donors. However, there is not much worry about this being the case. The sad fact is that not even 50 per cent of the Occidental family will participate in the blood drive. This should not be. The unhappy fact is that American soldiers perhaps your brother, or best buddy, or next-door neighbor—are fighting and dying in Korea and nobody seems to care, at least not enough to give the pint of blood that might be the difference between life and death to some wounded service man. This also should not be. These shirkers may be highly vocal In condemning the war, and yet they won’t make what Is probably the greatest contribution to the war effort It is possible for people In our circumstances to make. They rationalize their apathetic attitude by saying "it isn’t their war” or some such asi...
How Not to Be Teacher's Pet [Newspaper Article] — Occidental — 6 March 1953
How Not to Be Teacher's Pet A columnist for the Plainsman, Alabama Polytechnic Institute, has started a “I Hate Professors” club. Here are a few of the more salient rules: 1. Be late to all classes at least half the time. When entering a classroom late, glare at the professor and Insinuate that he started the class 10 minutes early. 2. Talk to one or more of your classmates in a whisper just loud enough for the Instructor to hear you, but not loud enough for him to understand the words. 3. Fifteen minutes before the end of the class hour, begin to stack your books neatly, put on your coat and look expectantly toward the door. Keep an eye on your watch throughout the entire period and the other eye looking out the window. If a window isn’t handy, stare at the ceiling from time to time. 4. If you ask a question, be sure that it Is one that the professor cannot answer.
'paux “Poa [Newspaper Article] — Occidental — 6 March 1953
'paux “Poa By MING AND UTZINGER The Occidental Modern Dane* group staged their best concert in three years before capacity crowds last weekend. The use of the Women’s Gym, with the audience seated close to and a little above the dancers, presented some unique problems which partially added to and partially detracted from the effectiveness of the whole production. A large part of the effect of modern dance, like ballet, depends upon a certain amount of illusion. This illusion was lost In some cases by the fact that the audience, being so close to the performers, could detect all the minor flaws and Imperfections In technique which would otherwise pass unnoticed. Such wag the case with the floor bumpings, skirt flappings, record scratchings and all the unnecessary body contact which from time to time brought the viewer back to reality with somewhat of a start. If the purpose of modern dance is to create a purely bodily reaction in the audience 1.e., movement for motions’ sake, with no...
