  1. Speaking of Olympics, I had a stats teacher at Pasadena City College who attended USC and won a Silver Medal in the 1948 Olypmics in London. His name was Roland Sink. he went by Rolly. He went to South Pasadena High. He used to say, if you use an SC pencil, you will always get the correct answer. I used an SC pencil and passed with flying colors. Very nice man and he loved USC.
