Armistice Day [Newspaper Article] — Corsair — 12 November 1930
Armistice Day At the present time the conception of Armistice Day seems to be that of a holiday, a day of parades, military displays, and other forms of jubilee. In fact, it now appears that the true significance of this day as a day of memorial in honor of those who fought and died for their fellow men has been overshadowed, to a very great extent, by a spirit of celebration. As an alternative for all this, it has been proposed to emphasize world peace as a fitting subject whereby to commemorate Armistice Day. Now, if the cause for the occasion.be thus obscured, perhaps it were better to forget our Armistice Day, for does it not hold that, wherein it gives joy to those who lack an understanding of the seriousness of the occasion, it also gives, on the other hand, an equal share of untold grief and sorrow to those who have suffered either directly or indirectly through the ravages of the Great War. With this idea in mind, there are already signs on the part of various European count...

Shakespeare Ousts Plato In Philosophy Sections [Newspaper Article] — Corsair — 12 November 1930
Shakespeare Ousts Plato In Philosophy Sections While Dr. Bradford was lecturing to his philosophy I class, a heavy fog rolled into the building through the half-open window, to create a hazy screen between the professor and the students. At the time the subject under explanation was Plato's philosophy, but some intangible influence must have ridden in on the ocean fog, for Dr. Bradford persisted in saying Shakespeare whenever he referred to Plato. Quite a bit of merriment was caused by this persistent slip, and Dr. Bradford was forced to grin with the class as he corrected himself, time and again.

German Proverb Students of the second semester German class have been initiated into the mysteries of German idiom through the use of proverbs. Mr. Stromer gave a number of ; the aged sayings to the class, and transI lated their meanings into English, as the strict translation, word for word, shows little connection with the corresponding thought in English. ; Humorous sayings some were, creating a period of mirth after each translation and the attempt to find an English proverb \ to hold the same thought.
Athenaeum Members Laying Future Plans For Club Actions [Newspaper Article] — Corsair — 12 November 1930
Athenaeum Members Laying Future Plans For Club Actions Morse Little, presiding at the meeting of the Athenaeum Club held last Thursday during the ex period, stressed the fact that the club has been doing very little as compared to the large number of activities which the club sponsors. The members discussed the future doings of the organization. A plan, suggested by Mr. Kepner, has been decided upon: The recital hall will be used as a workshop. Plays which are prepared will be given to the club members, and to those students whom the members invite. The next meeting, scheduled for Thursday, November 20, will be devoted partly to the election of officers. The former officers, it would seem, have been cither inadequate, or have been otherwise engaged. Due to the fact that nearly all the present members are new this term, an election of officers would be in keeping with the current spirit of the club. As an entertainment antithesis to this business section of the meeting, "Thursday Eve...

CORSAIRS BATTLE SAN BERNARDINO [Newspaper Article] — Corsair — 12 November 1930
CORSAIRS BATTLE SAN BERNARDINO Corsairs Entertain San Bernardino In Initial Home Conference Game; Orange And Gray Supporters Hope For Victory What promises to be a tough and hard-fought grid struggle is on tap for Santa Monica Junior College students Saturday, when Coach Mishler's men tangle with the supposedly strong San Bernardino eleven on the Samohi field. This tussle, being the first conference fray of the season to be held on the local field, merits a large attendance, presumably the larger part of the crowd featuring Santa Monica Jaysee rooters. With the team in a winning mood, after trimming California Christian College Frosh a short time ago, matters may turn out differently than they have in the past two conference games with ChafFey and River side Chaffey Beats San Berdoo Although it is said that comparative scores do not mean a thing in football, it may be a consolation to learn that San Bernardino was humbled, 65 to 0, two weeks ago Chaffey, the team that could only rol...
