'REPAIRS' ONLY ITEM TO EXCEED Ist TERM BUDGET [Newspaper Article] — Occidental — 13 March 1953
'REPAIRS' ONLY ITEM TO EXCEED Ist TERM BUDGET Student body Finance Chairman Jim Ensign reports that everybody stayed within the school budget last semester except for an item marked “repairs.” It was necessary to repair the chairs which are in the lounge of the cooler. The cost was paid in part by the student body fund but there was an excess cost of $2OO, which had to come out of surplus funds. There was a surplus in the budget last September of $l2OO. But because of the extra cost of the chairs, an unexpected decrease in the enrollment this semester which caused the student body fund to lose an expected $250, and a fee of $3OO necessary to underwrite the spring musical, the surplus has been reduced to $450. The student body budget was recently revised by Red Gresham, Jim Ensign and Miss Creager to account for the reduced income from Student Body fees and additional expenses. “This $450 surplus should be enough to carry us through the rest of the year,” said Jim Ensign, “barring an...

Field to Be in Use Next Month [Newspaper Article] — Occidental — 13 March 1953
Field to Be in Use Next Month Tiger athletes will be able to use the renovated Bell Field about the middle of next month, according to Mr. Harris Purdy, Superintendent of Grounds. The treatment, which cost about $l5OO, was for Dallas Grass and improper grading. The sprinkler system was also improved for a more extensive coverage of the field. Students can help to keep Bell Field in top condition by observing the following suggestions: 1) Remind outsiders that the field is for the use of Oxyites* and can only be used by others with the permission of the college; 2) replace all divots; 3) rotate activity areas, so that one part is not in use all of the time. “We are sorry about the lack of athletic fields,” Purdy continues. “The fact that the baseball field suffered during the work on Bell is unfortunate, but it was felt that the situation was similar to a person who uses the garage while his house is being built. The ultimate result should prove satisfactory, however, and justify the...

Small Colleges Make Scholars [Newspaper Article] — Occidental — 13 March 1953
Small Colleges Make Scholars In a recent study made by Mademoiselle magazine of four-year accredited colleges, “small liberal arts colleges, privately controlled and nondenominational” were found to be the most abundant producers of scholars. The February edition of the national magazine points to Swarthmore, Reed, University of Chicago, Oberlin, Carleton, and Antioch institutions as the top six producers of eminent scholars today. The colleges are characterized by factors quite applicable to Occidental. Says Madarrioiselle: “If you haven’t heard of some of them (the colleges) it may be because at these colleges football is a game to be played for the fun of it. None of these colleges has national sororities. All but one are small liberal arts colleges, all are privately controlled and nondenominational, though three were founded by church groups. All choose students not only for scholastic aptitude and what they can learn from this college but also for what they can teach each othe...
