Psychology Tests Determine Status of J. C. Students [Newspaper Article] — Corsair — 1 October 1929
Psychology Tests Determine Status of J. C. Students The examination given to the Junior College students this morning was a duplicate of one given to over 12,000 junior college students throughout the state. This examination is being given by Stanford University under the supervision of Dr. Eells, of the psychology department. The results will be tabulated for future study. The main purpose of the test is to study the types represented in the junior colleges and compare them with the students attending the first two years of the larger universities. One of the objectives will be determined in this examination —whether the junior colleges are having as good a type of student as the larger universities. Dr. Eells believes students matriculating at a large university after completing two years at a junior college, will do better work than a student who spent his freshman and sophomore years at the large university. It has been found at Stanford that the former junior college students h...
Public Speakers Learn New Words [Newspaper Article] — Corsair — 1 October 1929
Public Speakers Learn New Words Mr. Wallbank has endeavored to increase the vocabularies of those struggling in his public speaking class, by bestowing 168 of Webster's mighty words upon us, to be put to correct use in sentences. Consequently, a number of students have been noticed industriously studying the dictionary. - Also, several Henry Ward Beechers have been discovered since delivering their first three-minute speeches, only a short course of time will determine them national orators.
FIRST EDITION [Newspaper Article] — Corsair — 1 October 1929
FIRST EDITION This first edition of the paper is published by a group of students who comprise the newly organized Journal Club. We ask the student body to bear with us until a permanent name and staff are selected. We hope this will be accomplished before the next edition goes to press.
College Classes Adopt Budgets [Newspaper Article] — Corsair — 1 October 1929
College Classes Adopt Budgets The budget system of daily time expended has been adopted by the citizenship classes of the College. This is perhaps the most novel idea that could be incorporated in the lives of Cpllege students. Many students have spare hours between classes that are not used to good advantage. By the use of the budget system they may apportion their time, giving so much to study, and thus facilitating the completion of their assignments. By the use of this system students will find they will not have as many lessons to do at home. It first sets aside the time spent in classes, then the time spent in school as a whole. The time spent in going to and from school, and the time that should be spent in studying at home is budgeted. Time for recreation is also specified in this unique system.
Orchestra Forms For Popular Programs [Newspaper Article] — Corsair — 1 October 1929
Orchestra Forms For Popular Programs In accordance with the progress of our Junior College an orchestra is now being organized. During the past week a meeting was held under the leadership of Kermit Burford. Dr. Bush was on hand to give those present a few hints concerning the orchestra. At present no adviser has been selected for the club. Those players who were present at the first meeting of the club were Morse Little, Kermit Burford, Alden Burks and Frank Watson. The organization is to be called the Harmony Club. Much talent should be obtainable from a school of this size. Anyone who plays an instrument and wishes to join the club should get in touch with Kermit Burford or Morse Little.

Mr. Sandmeyer and family journeyed to Long Beach last Sunday.
Junior College System Offers More Chance for New Student / Individuals Profit Greatly [Newspaper Article] — Corsair — 1 October 1929
Junior College System Offers More Chance for New Student / Individuals Profit Greatly STUDENTS enrolled in Santa Monica Junior College should be proud of the fact they are able to attend this institution. Many of the student body know little of the routine needed to launch a school of this kind; yet if it had I not been for a carefully worked out schedule many of those now enjoying their college work here would have been obliged to matriculate elsewhere. In an in'■'terview for this paper, Dr. Bash, our director, explained some of the intricate systems used in founding Santa Monica Junior College. Dr. Bush has been engaged in junior college work since 1913, when he was associated with the first junior college in the country. This institution is located at Joliet, Illinois, where Dr. Bush was assistant superintendent of schools for many years. From Joliet he moved to Long Beach, where he planned the beginning of their junior college; then he became associated with the Santa Monica sys...
Four Women Help Constitution Body [Newspaper Article] — Corsair — 1 October 1929
Four Women Help Constitution Body Since the constitutional committee was formed it has been realized by the male members, that they couldn't get the best results without the influence of a few women students, and four members were added. The committee has met six times, and, as a result of the last meeting the constitution is finally ready for ratification by the Student Body. If the constitution doesn't please the majority of the students it can easily be amended. Mr. Sandmeyer, the faculty advisor on the committee, has more than proved his interest in the welfare of the constitution. At all times he has aimed to make this document one that is fair to the administration, faculty and students. Mr. Wallbank treked to Los Angeles and viewed "The Command Performance" over the week-end.
Sixteen Colleges Smaller Than S. M. [Newspaper Article] — Corsair — 1 October 1929
Sixteen Colleges Smaller Than S. M. Students at Santa Monica Junior College may be interested to know that although we are one of the youngest junior colleges in the state, we are far from being the smallest. Of the 33 junior colleges in the state, there are only sixteen larger than Santa Monica, while sixteen schools are smaller than our institution. Practically all of the other junior colleges have both sophomore and freshman classes, while here we have only the first semester of the first year. Two of these institutions are very little larger, and we will probably pass them in enrollment by next semester. These junior colleges have been in operation for from two to eight years longer than Santa Monica, so have had a long time to build up their student body. The junior colleges in the state are located at Brawley, El Centro, Citrus, Susanville, Menlo, Pomona, Porterville, Reedley, Salinas, Hollister, Lancaster, Santa Maria, Taft, Ventura, Visalia, Marysville, Chaffee, Compton, Ful...
Drama Organization Waits For Debate [Newspaper Article] — Corsair — 1 October 1929
Drama Organization Waits For Debate Students who have been pestering everyone in sight concerning news of a "Jaysee" drama organization will be relieved to learn that it will start as soon as the debating season is well under way. Due to the small number of students, Professor Wallbank thinks it inadvisable to attempt both drama and debate at the same time. However, as soon as debating is well started, our amateur thespeans will have their opportunity.
U. C. L. A. Beaten By Trojan Herd [Newspaper Article] — Corsair — 1 October 1929
U. C. L. A. Beaten By Trojan Herd In a game devoid of spectacular plays, the University of Southern California defeated the University of California at Los Angeles, last Saturday in the Coliseum, by the one-sided score of 76-0.

SANTA MONICA J. C. [Newspaper Article] — Corsair — 1 October 1929
SANTA MONICA J. C. Published every other Tuesday during the school year by the staff and members of the Journal Club of Santa Monica Junior College.

Naming Paper Important Task [Newspaper Article] — Corsair — 1 October 1929
Naming Paper Important Task One of the standards by which a school is judged is its school paper. It shows to outsiders the accomplishments of the students in all modes of life: social, scholastic, and sport. It represents their ideals, their thoughts on the various topics that may concern them in their student life. Finally, it is a concrete example of the student body and what it stands for. During the term of its development, its achievement of success after it has gained permanent recognition in the annals of college journalism, the junior college paper must bear a name. In the name alone there is a hidden meaning which tells, in a way, the kind of school supporting it. You students, who take pride in the name of your school, of your clubs, will also be proud of the name of your paper. Make a thoughtful choice, therefore —and everyone of you send in suggestions. Material, no matter what its nature, will be welcomed by the staff. Variety is a great asset to any paper, so the more...
Keep Cooperation in School [Newspaper Article] — Corsair — 1 October 1929
Keep Cooperation in School Co-operation among the students and faculty is the thing that will help more than anything else to make Santa Monica Junior College an ideal institution. Instances of this spirit are already manifest, yet we must guard against a loss of it. Members of the high school faculty have co-operated to a high degree to make the beginning of college as easy for the students as possible. A striking example of this has been the help Mr. Lord of the bookstore has given the students. He obtained the textbooks required for the college students as soon as possible, and thus enabled every class to start work immediately. Miss Hacker, librarian, gave talks on library usage to the citizenship classes. The academic faculty co-operated by helping students select proper programs, plan future work, and aided in organization of clubs and societies. Now, as members of the student body we can repay them by helping them in their tasks. Watch the tardinesses closely, breaking into a...
College Students Should Obey [Newspaper Article] — Corsair — 1 October 1929
College Students Should Obey The period we are passing through may be regarded as a critical point in the life of Santa Monica Junior College. At the beginning of any institution the whole future may be said to rest on the actions of the students enrolled the first semester. There are graduates from many different high schools enrolled here. Each school has had a different system of government which the student has learned to obey. Now the duty of each person is to forget the past rules and acquaint himself thoroughly with the regulations in effect at this institution. The student should bear in mind that the rules governing Santa Monica Junior College have been picked as the ones best suited to the needs of this College. What the student may do at Siwash is of no consequence here, Siwash is not governed by the Santa Monica system. Even at this early period infractions of the rules have started. The "cut" rule has been taken advantage of; talking in the library, though against the r...
Debating Season Will Soon Start [Newspaper Article] — Corsair — 1 October 1929
Debating Season Will Soon Start Those "Jaysee" students who have oratorical aspirations have good news in store for them. After two weeks of rumors pro and contra it was officially announced late yesterday by Professor Wallbank that debate will soon be in full swing. On October 12 Professor Wallbank and Dr. Bush will journey to the Junior College meeting at Pasadena. While there they will visit the Junior College commissioner of forensics and receive a debate schedule as well as a list of rules and the questions to be debated on. Following their return debating will start in earnest. Here is a splendid chance for some of the amateur Daniel Websters now starring in public speaking classes. Since the debating team will compete with other junior colleges all over the surrounding territory, it will be one of the first teams, if not the first to appear as our representatives. The first impression many outsiders receive of "S. M. J. C." will be from our debating team. Consequently, not on...
Need Suggestions For Name, Colors [Newspaper Article] — Corsair — 1 October 1929
Need Suggestions For Name, Colors There is not a school in existence which has no special name among the students — a nickname which takes the place of the long, formal one. A nickname expresses spirit and arouses enthusiasm; makes school yells uniform and rhythmic; and avoids the wearisome necessity of writing to one's friend, "Santa Monica Junior College" did so and so, when a nickname of six or eight letters will do much better and expresses a deeper meaning. Likewise every school has its colors, undoubtedly the cause for greatest pride. School colors mean as much to the students as the national emblem means to them as citizens of the United States. Whether in sport or drama, school colors are represented. They stir patriotic spirit and fight. So, students, a nickname and colors being practically necessary for existence of the college, get brains working and choose well. The spirit of the school must exist from the start.
Committee Presents Constitution Soon [Newspaper Article] — Corsair — 1 October 1929
Committee Presents Constitution Soon A committee of five has been chosen to draw up a constitution for the Santa Monica Junior College. At the time of this writing the committee was not yet ready to submit the document for revision. It is expected that as soon as the constitution is ready an assembly will be called in order to bring the high lights of the constitution to the attention of the student body. A great deal depends on this constitution, and it should be put into a form that will take care of both present and future needs. The constitution will be ready for acceptance at an early date.
