Basketball Progressing [Newspaper Article] — Corsair — 22 October 1930
Basketball Progressing A record turnout of twenty-one candidates for varsity basketball greeted Coach F. Dulin Monday, for the fourth practice session of the season. Pivoting, passing and dribbling was featured during the practice, with a light scrimmage to top off the day. The squad will be greatly bolstered when football season is over. Several basketball lettermen are engaged in endeavoring to bring fame to S. M. J. C. on the gridiron, and will be available for basketball with the close of the pigskin season. Coach Dulin states that the squad will be cut in a few weeks, but every man will be given a chance to show his stuff first. Youth may stop and look, but will never listen.
Evening School To Play Jaysee Women [Newspaper Article] — Corsair — 22 October 1930
Evening School To Play Jaysee Women Miss Martha Hellner's evening school basketball team will play the Junior College women's team tonight. This g&amp;me is expected to be one of gnashing of teeth and pulling of hair, for the night school team is known to be a fast-stepping one. Viewing the J. C. practices, it looks as though the evening school team will have a hard time beating the J. C. women. The collegiennes will appear with little orange-and-gray "dinkies." Thus far the following women are on the team. Forwards, Joy Rutherford and Margaret Darusmont; centers, Inez O'Conner and Evelyn Clemeng and Thelma Fletcher; guards —Helen Stelzriede, Laura Das and Lucile Williams.
Vikings Defeated [Newspaper Article] — Corsair — 22 October 1930
Vikings Defeated The Santa Monica High School football team went down to a 14-0 defeat before the Inglewood Sentinels, last Friday, in a hard-fought game played at Westwood. The Sentinels scored both touchdowns via the air route. Failing to show much scoring punch, and handicapped by injuries, the Vikes were outplayed in every department of the game. Inglewood was able to gain consistently through tackle and aerial play. The Vikings play Redondo this week, in their second league encounter, but are decided under-dogs, as the Seahawks are favored to annex the Bay League title.

Superior Reserve Strength Topples Fighting Corsairs [Newspaper Article] — Corsair — 22 October 1930
Superior Reserve Strength Topples Fighting Corsairs By Gus VIGNOLLE A willing and fighting band of Santa Monica Junior College football men, coached by Floyd Mishler and captained by Wally Hickman, journeyed to Ontario last Saturday and met the strong Chaffey J. C. eleven, only to return on the short end of a 38-14 score. It was their first conference tiff of the season. The Corsairs played an exceptionally good brand of football during the entire first half, and at half-time the count, much to the bewilderment of ChafFey followers, stood Santa Monica 14, Chaffey 12. But the heavy weight of Bert Heiser's team, which practically outweighed the Corsairs ten. pounds per man, soon took its toll, and the Mishlerites wilted in the second half, due to the constant pounding of a much heavier team. After scoring 14 digits, as compared to Chaffey's 12, during the first half, Santa Monica remained scoreless in the last half, while the Panthers managed to ring up 26 more points., Corsairs Score...
TARGET PRACTICE [Newspaper Article] — Corsair — 22 October 1930
TARGET PRACTICE We wonder what Coach Bert Heiser told his Chaffey stalwarts between halves of the game last Saturday. After being outplayed by the Corsairs in the first half, and with the score 14 to 12 against them, the Panthers came back in the second half to give an exhibition of how football should be played. The Chaffey eleven looked like champs in the making, but due credit should be given to Coach Mlshler's men for their gallant fight against an admittedly superior team. It was plenty hot at Chaffey Saturday, and this may have had something to do with the Corsairs' downfall. It looked like a plain case of overconfidence on the part of the valley team during the first of the game, but their coach must have taken that out of them during the half, because they came back fighting mad, and proceeded to score four The Corsair forward wall could not seem to stop the brilliant thrusts of Keough and Glass. By the way, this Keough is some football player, and should make all-conference...
"SPIN-DRIFT" NAME SELECTED [Newspaper Article] — Corsair — 29 October 1930
"SPIN-DRIFT" NAME SELECTED Year Book Appropriately Named "Spin-Drift" by Popular Choice Santa Monica Junior College's year book has at last been given a name that has seemed to please everyone. "Spin Drift," the name selected, is defined as the spray thrown aside by a fast-moving vessel. Think of the creaking deck-beams, Of the ports with spindrift white; Of the rowers chained to the benches At their labor; day and night. The staff is well pleased by the selection of the student body, as a very fine cover and seal can be made embodying the characteristics surrounding the name. The results of the voting for names is as follows: Spin Drift, 52; Corvette, 41; Yataghan, 30; Corsair, 28. Approximately seventy-five votes were cast for other names, but were not sufficient to consider any of the names voted on. Other outstanding choices were, in order of their popularity, Felucca, Skull and Bones, Treasure, Sea Gull, and the Tall Boot. The committee working on themes has selected a nautical...
Television Is Topic Of Engineers'1 Club Speaker, Tuesday [Newspaper Article] — Corsair — 29 October 1930
Television Is Topic Of Engineers' 1 Club Speaker, Tuesday " Television is nothing new," commented W. W. Harper in an address to the Santa Monica Junior College Engineering Club. "It is founded, to a great extent, on the discovery of selenium by the Swedish chemist, Berzelius, 113 years ago; the first important step in the development of television. The next was made by Willoughby Smith, who in 1873 found that selenium was capable of acting as a connecting link between light and electricity. Hence it became patent that by means of this lightsensitive element a visual image could be transmitted by electrical means. Mr. Harper continued, outlining the development and elimination of crudities of television, and explaining the mechanics as he went along, until the members of the club had a thorough understanding of the topic. The club was well represented at the meeting, and many members of the Junior College faculty also attended. Mr. Harper further stated that although the discovery of...

Barks From The Balcony [Newspaper Article] — Corsair — 29 October 1930
Barks From The Balcony It is a good thing the fine weather keeps up. A number of the boys have been whooping it up on the lawn. That is, they have been perusing the books, in case of exams. Every day they can be seen turning the pages, and trying to guess what the questions will be. Well, now that the teachers have sent the invitations to do more studying, we will see recitations pick up. That is, they will be better for at least a week. If you missed the Marine Band, you certainly missed some of the best music that has been heard in these parts for some time. It must be remembered that the entire band did not make the trip from Washington, but those who played here certainly can be regarded as finished musicians. Now the harbor has been started. Some of the J. C. students were in on the driving of the first pile, and some pictures for the annual were taken by the official photographer for the "Spin Drift." It was a good thing some of the College students were able to attend the cer...
Dr. Bush Addresses Clarement Assembly [Newspaper Article] — Corsair — 29 October 1930
Dr. Bush Addresses Clarement Assembly "The Teaching of Ideals" was the subject of a talk given by Dr. Ralph H. Bush before about eighty-five educators at Balch Hall, on the Campus of Scripps College, last Wednesday. For the teaching of ideals Dr. Bush outlined five main points to be followed, namely: create the desire; diagnose the situation; develop a plan of action; require practice; generalize ideals. Each point was illustrated by three or four practical and concrete examples. The Department of Education of the Claremont Colleges sponsored the lecture.

College Classes Are to Organize On Single Units [Newspaper Article] — Corsair — 29 October 1930
College Classes Are to Organize On Single Units According to Mr. E. C. Sandmeyer the work of organizing the new divisions of the Junior College Student Body will begin Thursday, when those elibible will meet to organize the Alpha group. The plan for dividing the student body into four sections rather than the more or less traditional two, was presented by Dr. Ralph Bush to the executive commission for discussion. The plan was pioneered in the Los Angeles Junior College last year, and found to be a satisfactory one. The commission approved the system, and voted to have it used in the organization of Javsee classes. It is believed that Santa Monica is the second Junior College to organize on this plan. Students become eligible for the various groups as follows: Deltas —46 units or more. Gammas —28 to 45 units. Betas —12 to 27 units. Alphas—ll units or under. The Greek, letters naming these organizations have no particular meanings attached. They are the first four of the Greek alphabe...

When To Be Silent [Newspaper Article] — Corsair — 29 October 1930
When To Be Silent Respect for the rights of the people has, in all ages, been more or less strictly adhered to, and whenever this respect has been lost sight of. troubles of various kinds have developed. This law holds equally true with regard to junior college students. These students are entitled to certain rights and included in these rights is the one of silent study in the library. We, as students, are perfectly entitled to the quietness and silence of the library as a valuable aid in our many studies, and we feel grateful to those students who have hitherto acceded to us this particular right. In Santa Monica, however, we have a double problem to meet —that is, the High School students also share the privilege of using the library. Therefore, if satisfactory results are to be obtained we, as college students, must accept the theory of noblesse oblige, and see to it that we strictly adhere to the old law of human rights. Moreover, we must adhere to the law of love which Richard...

It's Not Too Late [Newspaper Article] — Corsair — 29 October 1930
It's Not Too Late When a man or woman enters college, he or she enters a new life; all the old habits, ideas and deportment are upset, and a new code of values must be reconstructed from the ruins of the older, less definite, and altogether adolescent one. The transition from public school to the higher institution of learning is a perilous period, fraught with a dangerous freedom. Once passed in the right manner (buckling down to hard work, and not waiting for the voice in the dark), we have nothing to fear; our habits will have been formed. We shall walk the street without fear. But, on the other hand, among us are many who never will pass through the trying days of the transition; some will drop out, and others will live in a nightmare throughout four fearsome years.
