Music Club Gives Program [Newspaper Article] — Corsair — 5 November 1930
Music Club Gives Program The Music Club has really commenced its activities, beginning Monday evening, November 3, with a very interesting musical program, which followed the business meeting. The program consisted of a vocal solo by Allen Freeman, a piano solo by Marie Karl, and a trombone solo by Richard Neckman. The club is meeting temporarily in room 11, but it is planned that future meetings will be held elsewhere.
"Pot Luck" Dinner Given by Y.W.C.A. [Newspaper Article] — Corsair — 5 November 1930
"Pot Luck" Dinner Given by Y.W.C.A. Those girls who attended the last Y. W. C. A. meeting declared it a decided success. If any of the other girls of the student body desire a good informal time and good eats, come to the next pot-luck. This pot-luck will come earlier than usual, due to the fact that we are to have Helen Price, the national secretary, with us. Miss Price will meet each of the cabinet members separately to discuss their work with them and then the general meeting will be held at 5:30, beginning with a pot-luck dinner at the "Y" house, 1333 Ocean Avenue. Adele Winn will have charge of the meeting following the dinner. Remember November 10, 5:30 p. m., at the "Y" house, 1333 Ocean Avenue.
Zoology Class to Work Sharks Over [Newspaper Article] — Corsair — 5 November 1930
Zoology Class to Work Sharks Over Miss Mainard's zoology II class has entered into the second phase of its semester's work with the arrival of the dogfish sharks. Special equipment was provided last semester for the preservation of the specimens. Although they are kept in a solution of formaldehyde when the zoologists are not using them, the sharks give off a pungent odor, which, perhaps, has been noticed by many in that wing of the building.
Physical Education Class Will Organize Teams [Newspaper Article] — Corsair — 5 November 1930
Physical Education Class Will Organize Teams The fifth period physical education class soon expects to form into several groups. According to Coach Mishler, nets will be set up for those who desire to play volleyball. Others will play basketball and football. It is in the latter sport that organization seems to impend. It is likely that two teams will be formed from those who want to play football, and that permanent positions will be assigned, followed by short practice in running off plays. Games between the two opposing teams will lack the hitherto haphazard long-pass venture.

Assemblies Want Support [Newspaper Article] — Corsair — 5 November 1930
Assemblies Want Support When the Junior College announces a scheduled assembly for the entire student body, it is the duty of every Corsair to add himself to the group in the auditorium, for, after all, there are not so many of us that the absence of twenty-five or more students is not felt. It is our special duty as members of this institution to aid in making of its every endeavor a success; only by lending our whole-hearted, unselfish co-operation shall we be able to bring a feeling of genuine interest in the activities of our student clubs. As a rule, it is to the splendid spirit of our various clubs that we owe our assembly. It is only just that every student should show his appreciation, at least by his presence. In no sense is the scheduling of an assembly compulsory, nor is any club compelled to stage an entertainment for the student body. It is due to their desire to make Santa Monica Junior College an institution of social enjoyment as well as a college of higher education...
To Playful Frosh [Newspaper Article] — Corsair — 5 November 1930
To Playful Frosh "Not everyone is grown up who wears long pants, nor yet is everyone beyond his ohildhood days who enters college!" True is that statement. But no longer is it so effective as during the days it was meant to sear the empty mind of gallants. Certainly, today we witness tiny children, not yet grown old enough to be called adolescents, strutting about in long pants, the erstwhile sign of manhood. Also is that part so innocently stated in regard to college men as biting and scornful as it ever was in days of a past generation. True we have found that statement: "nor yet is everyone beyond his childhood days who enters college." If the child-like deportment of some of our gay frosh tends to lend a college dignity to their not-at-all humorous playfulness, then the force and vitality of that statement has been spent, but I think not! Certainly, zoology specimens were introduced into the laboratory for serious work and research. Yet some think them mere toys for crude, canda...
College Tradition Is Vital [Newspaper Article] — Corsair — 5 November 1930
College Tradition Is Vital Tradition is the part so vital to every college; it is the field to which the incoming frosh look with considerable awe. Rarely does one find an institution without its ancient, time-worn, battered tradition. When one does, he carries a certain nameless contempt for the school that cares so little for its passing men and women as not to let their spirit live on forever in its great halls. It is a problem faced by every new college. We of Santa Monica Junior College face that problem. Some rules governing the life of the frosh have been set down. More will come next semester, aAd let us hope that they will be enforced —that a tradition will be built up of which the school will not be ashamed.
SOCIETY [Newspaper Article] — Corsair — 5 November 1930
SOCIETY Frank Michel was seen with "Polka Dot" Smith at Laguna during this last week-end. The party attended a formal dance in the evening, at the "White Berg" cafe. ' Wives of the faculty members met this afternoon at a luncheon given by Mrs. Osterholt. Those invited are: Mesdames Sandmeyer, Coulson, Phipps, Dulin, Bush, Bradford, Mishler, Bauer, Kepner, Wallbank, and Barnum.

The entertainers of the afternoon will be the Royal Russian Chorus. There are still a few season tickets available, according to Miss Doris Moon, chairman of the department of music. The cost is nominal —$1...
Steve Brodie Loses Place as Great Hero [Newspaper Article] — Corsair — 5 November 1930
Steve Brodie Loses Place as Great Hero The patron saint of many gamblers, Steve Brodie, found his match, when a workman by the name of Kelly fell 175 feet into Port Jackson harbor, Sydney, New South Wales. Kelly hurtled down feet first into the bay, and lived to tell the tale. Now he is wondering whether he is the holder of a world's record for the high plunge. The following is the story as it appeared recently in the Santa Monica Outlook: "While working on the great new Sydney harbor bridge, said to be the world's largest arch bridge, a workman named Kelly today fell 175 feet into the harbor. "He hurtled down feet first and as he struck the water a column of spray twenty feet high shot into the air. Kelly swam ashore not much worse for his experience, and is now wondering whether he established a high plunge record. "So far as' is known here, the record heretofore has rested with Steve Brodie, who immortalized his name by jumping off the Brooklyn bridge, 133 feet above the waters o...
HUMOR [Newspaper Article] — Corsair — 5 November 1930
HUMOR He: My femme went to the prom wearing a hand-grenade dress. Him: Well, what's the catch? He: Pull the pin, and then it's every man for himself —Stevens Stone Mill. Motorist: Would you mind getting out of that gutter? I'd like to park my car. Gutterite: Fooled you! I'm leaning against a fire-plug.— Pitt Panther. College: Girl: Can you dance on one foot? College Man: Of course. Girl: Then keep off my other one. —U S. C. Wampus. Little Boy Blue, come blow your horn, A grad's in your bed, a goat's in your corn. Where's the boy who looks after the house? He's out in your car with the graduate's spouse. —Virginia Cavalier. The class in public speaking was to give pantomimes that afternoon. One frosh got up when called on, went to the platform and stood perfectly still. "Well," said the prpf, after a minute's wait for something to happen, "what do you represent?" "I'm imitating a man going up in an elevator," was the quick response. "Who won the War of the Roses?" "The University of ...
Tryouts For Junior College Debate Squad To Be Held This Week [Newspaper Article] — Corsair — 5 November 1930
Tryouts For Junior College Debate Squad To Be Held This Week Tryouts for the debate squad are under way, according to Mr. T. W. Wallbank. Members of the public speaking classes broke the ice, Monday, by handing out five-minute samples of their argumentative and demosthenic abilities. Each of the contenders chose a topic pertaining to the question: "Resolved, that the United States should adopt the forty-hour week." A great deal of interesting matter was presented—philosophic, psychologic and material. The debate section met Tuesday afternoon for the same purpose, but as this section had gone to press by that time, no data could be given. Correspondence is being carried on with the United States Department of Labor, the American Federation of Labor, and numerous other organizations interestedc in this movement. Mr. Wallbank feels that considering the great interest shown in debate this year, we may expect a very strong team.
Geologists Make Trip [Newspaper Article] — Corsair — 5 November 1930
Geologists Make Trip Mr. W. R. B. Osterholt's geology classes traveled to the La Brea Pits Monday afternoon to study the formations of the Pliocene Age and other fossil remains. This is one of a number of field trips made by the geologists during the semester, and a feature of the class. La Brea makes a fine location for study of geological conditions. The Pliocene formations are of especial interest, as the age supported life of a nature similar to that of the present.
German Only Spoken [Newspaper Article] — Corsair — 5 November 1930
German Only Spoken "German only is to be spoken in the German II class," is Mr. Strotner's decree. According to the instructor, it is his desire to orient the class to the sound of German as it is spoken, quickly, and to foster the greater use of the language among the students. As only one hour a day is allotted to the subject,' it is essential that the most be made of every available minute. Also, new books are to be used, and it is quite likely that a German play will be converted into a text for the edification of the students.

However, College students may receive tickets to the game by going to the commercial office on Wednesday or Thursday of this week, and showing their student body tickets. In Recital Hall on Monday evening, November 3, the newly formed Music Club met to give a musical program. A fair turnout of Junior College students was entertained with a number of songs and pieces on the piano.
CAMPUS COMMENT [Newspaper Article] — Corsair — 5 November 1930
CAMPUS COMMENT By ART REDDEN- NOW we can start cleaning up all the mud that has been slung by the candidates for the different offices throughout the state. Its a good thing these events don't come off very often, or we would be sliding around in slime up to our.knees. And, speaking of mud, it reminds us that students and professors are both warned to be careful of their actions or comments, for Los Angeles' loud-speaking pastor, Bob Shuler, has a pergonal representative on the campus. At least he claims he is representing Shuler, and far be it from us to argue with him. Then, too, the political bosses of the state should start rounding up the local boys and girls who tfied out for the debate team yesterday. They will surely do well as speakers for some of the candidates. At least, they seemed sincere in their beliefs. After having the score rolled up against them in the thirties for each of their two previous games, the Corsair squad reversed the tables and accounted for thirty-two...

ORGANIZATIONS [Newspaper Article] — Corsair — 5 November 1930
ORGANIZATIONS COSMOPOLITAN CLUB The regular- meeting of the Cosmopolitan Club was held Wednesday evening, October 29, at the home of Mrs. Stein, 2223 Malcolm Avenue, Westwood. The program for the evening was of a musical nature. Since a program of this type had never before been given at a Cosmopolitan Club meeting, it was very interesting. Frances Hudson, a student of the Jaysee, rendered several violin solos. Among them were the following numbers: "Praeludium und Allegro," by Fritz Kreisler, and "L'Abeille" (The Bee), by Francois Shubert. Alice Willers played, as a piano solo, "The Japanese Sunset," by Deppen. The evening was spent in discussing the music of different nations, using as illustrations the national songs of these countries. LOS HIDALGOS CLUB Los Hidalgos, the Spanish club, travels to Los Angeles today, on one of its very interesting functions —that of enjoying a Spanish evening in the midst of a buzzing American city. According to the plans of the club, the regular m...
