Need for Clubs [Newspaper Article] — Corsair — 29 October 1929
Need for Clubs Social activities are probably the greatest help to students in their college life. They furnish relaxation from the every-day study which becomes inevitably monotonous. Stimuli are needed to keep alive the mental energies. One of these stimuli is the club. Certainly there is some work in which every student is interested-)-something he never fails to discuss whenever he hears it mentioned. If a student is not particularly interested in any professional topic, and is poor in German, for instance, what an opportunity a German club would offer him to enter that realm of satisfied bliss—the "A" group. Why not form clubs, then : —form them to our hearts' content?

JOHN MUIR MAIDS There are teachers by the ocean, Called the Muir Maids by the sea, Who do their work in daytime hours And play nocturnally. They enteitain the rest by twos In each one's cove or ridge; They pass across life's span with joy By often playing bridge.

BOOK REVIEW [Newspaper Article] — Corsair — 29 October 1929
BOOK REVIEW Wm. Beebe's "Beneath Tropic Seas," one of the three hundred and fifty books purchased this year for the School Library, is not dull, as one would imagine, but full of unusual information concerning the submarine life in and about the'coral reefs of Haiti. It is an interesting fact that Mr. Beebe, sitting on the floor of the ocean, took notes with a note pad of zinc and a pencil. To quote the review which appeared in the Saturday Review of Literature some momths ago: "This new world of submarine life known hitherto mainly to the naturalist only in the crushed and mutilated booty of the dredge, or in bleached and contracted shape in bottles and jars, is revealed here for all who may read, in word and phrase as rich and full of charm as are the irridescent and always graceful denizens of the coral jungle itself. To portray so vividlv and to introduce so gracefully the marine world to the public is an accomplishment which many admiring readers will appreciate and enjoy."

Newly Formed Orchestra Will Give Concerts [Newspaper Article] — Corsair — 29 October 1929
Newly Formed Orchestra Will Give Concerts Should any of our idle students hear strange noises emanating from any portion of our building while they are wandering about, let us hasten to warn them not to turn in a general alarm, but to go their way in peace. It is not "spooks" or burglars they hear, but only S. M. J. C.'s first and only orchestra. This organization, the first of its kind in S. M. J. C., and destined to become our regular concert orchestra, consists of nine pieces and will start regular practice this week.

Hickman, traps; Many of these men are giving up valuable time, time otherwise...
On Stage and Screen [Newspaper Article] — Corsair — 29 October 1929
On Stage and Screen "After Dark." A very interesting experiment in the revival of the melodrama which was popular in the late nineteenth century. The reactions of the audience are the same as they were years ago, the villain being hissed at every appearance, coins being tossed on the stage, and uninteresting performers being applauded until they quit their act. "They Had to See Paris*" Will Rogers at his best. The gum-chewing, wise-cracking ex-mayor of Beverly Hills portrays an unsuspecting gentleman about to be fleeced by a professional lady of Paris. Don't miss this all-talkie. "Julius Caesar." Being given by the Pasadena Community Players with Francis X. Bushman as guest star. A wonderful portrayal by one of the best actors on stage or screen. 44 Dover Road." Edward Everett Horton in a whimsical piece of English setting with a fine supporting cast.

Coach gave a talk on the duties, aims and rewards of a team manager. A manager and one assistant are to be chosen for each team, among which will be swimming, tennis, golf, track, and basketball.

Special Functions Planned for Future [Newspaper Article] — Corsair — 29 October 1929
Special Functions Planned for Future Last week the committee on entertainment held a meeting at which they discussed the future social events of the junior college year. The members laid plans for a dance to be held December 13. Perhaps the most interesting item about this dance is the fact that it is free. The only stipulation is that one person of every couple must be a junior college student. Appropriate decorations will lend the desired atmosphere, and a good, peppv orchestra will keep the gay attendants on their toes. Apple trees are said to have been introduced into America in the colonial days

Suffering Student Shaves Self [Newspaper Article] — Corsair — 29 October 1929
Suffering Student Shaves Self Students of the college were quite interested one day last week, by a small, brown box being carried from class to class by Kenneth Darby, prima donna of the Listrogargling Opera Company. Odds of three seven-eighths to one and seven-thirds were being placed by the gambling fraternity of the balcony as to what was in the box. The label was of a very well known brand of cigars, but as it was known that Darby's choice is Cubebs (advertisement). The only reason that could be found as to why he would be carrying cigars was that maybe he was in the market for good grades and was distributing the cigars to the masculine members of the faculty, hoping they would get so nauseated they would give him a D in place of the usual A. This theory was blasted by the keen-visioned members of the group who pointed .out that this would have nothing to do with the feminine pulchritude engaged in dishing out "cinch" cards. The affirmative had for a main.point in its rebuttal...
Social Science Students Study Special Topics [Newspaper Article] — Corsair — 29 October 1929
Social Science Students Study Special Topics A very interesting and instructive program is being carried out in Mr. Wallbank's citizenship classes which meets every Tuesday and Thursday. The immigration problem, over which the class is ; working, has been divided into various ! ways "by which it is much more interesting and equally as instructive. One member |of the class, chosen by Mr. Wallbank, prepares a list of questions on the particular phase being covered. Then each member of the class is given a particular subject or topic covering these questions. Following these special short talks, one or two special and more detailed reportsare given covering the subject in general. Then the class is given a brief quizz or test on the entire material covered. In following this program Mr. Wallbank believes he has hit upon a much more interesting way of covering the ground and yet a way which will be equally instructive. On Tuesday Mr. Wallbank's classes listened to short talks by various...

There are ten students who attended high schools in other states, now at Santa Monica Junior College, nine of the states and the Philippine Islands are represented; one each from Arkansas, Indiana, Idaho, Nebraska, North Dakota, Oklahoma, Utah, Philippine Islands, and two from Wisconsin.

The reports sent back to these various states by these students, advertise the qualities of our school. Many people have moved to Santa Monica for its climate and advantages, therefore we feel that our school is very well located. Balsa wood, one of the lightest woods known, is u...

FIRST GAME [Newspaper Article] — Corsair — 29 October 1929
FIRST GAME Playing in fast and heady competition, the Corsairs lost to the Santa Monica Evening by the score of 36-29. The game was played in the girls' gymnasium. It was the hardest fought game played thus far, and the J. C. teams must be given credit for the showing they made. Dodge, the outstanding player for the evening school, made some remarkable scoring plays by scientific and spectacular passes and shots. He and his colleagues presented a highly organized outfit. No spedal mention can be made of the college men. Each man played a good game and showed marked improvement. The student body cannot be too hasty in their judgment of the team from the losses thus far incurred. The J. C. men have not any signals or plays as yet, but play simply .on the fundamentals taught them to date. The coach is purposely keeping fast company in order to accustom the men to conference caliber. The starting Jaysee line-up follows: Watson, c.; Ahlgrim, g.; Hickman, g.; Stevenson, f&lt;; Ros...
College Entrance Sought By Preps [Newspaper Article] — Corsair — 29 October 1929
College Entrance Sought By Preps Approximately twenty thousand young men and women will endeavor to secure admission to certain colleges next June, by taking examinations given by the College Entrance Examination Board. Of this number about twelve thousand will be given admission in the following September. There will be approximately forty-five hundred of these final candidates fail in one or more subjects, and will be refused admission to their favorite college: Many of them will try next year and some will enter a college where standards are not so severe. Others will decide not to go on to college. Twelve thousand is only a small fraction of the total number of applicants to all the colleges of the country. It is believed that the sorting-out process is the correct one, and that those who pass the examination are better qualified to make good use of the opportunities for higher education than those who fail. In 1926, 44.85 percent of the high school graduates in the United State...
