Barks From The Balcony [Newspaper Article] — Corsair — 19 November 1930
Barks From The Balcony If every college in the country were to take the attitude of some of the members of the student body of U. C. there would be so many coaches fired every week that the unemployment situation would be put in a condition from which it could never recover. The game between the basketball squads of S. M. J. C. and Long Beach J. C. had to be played in a Christian Science manner. Each understood that the game was to be held on his home grounds and hence the spiritual conflict. The latest report is that we are two thoughts ahead of them. We hate to think of what the campus will look like when spring arrives. What with all the lovers around here during the winter, when the real mating season arrives, just about everybody on the campus will have his or her partner. It's too bad the bandits couldn't pick some other time than during the last football game to hold their big shooting scrape. Anytime the players try to Ifeep the crowd amused while shots are flying thickly ac...

Hidalgos Invade New Calle Olvera The members of Los Hidalgos enjoyed a very interesting evening when the Club journeyed to the Los Angeles plaza for dinner and to the theater. Olvera Street offered much attraction, as it is fashioned after the streets of Mexico, and the wares are displayed in open stalls, with their owners seated in chairs under canopies.

Honor System for University Exams. Unpopular at L. A.

TARGET PRACTICE [Newspaper Article] — Corsair — 19 November 1930
TARGET PRAC TIE C By FRED SALTER After seeing the Corsairs in action Saturday against San Bernardino, it is hard to understand just how they could have lost to Chaffey and Riverside by' such large scores. Mishler's plays worked to perfection, and the defense wasn't so terrible either, managing to keep the Indians scoreless. Those present at the Berdoo game Saturday were privileged to view the neatest and most perfectly executed play seen on Samohi field for many a moon. Athey snagged a beautiful pass about midfield but was surrounded by San Berdoo tacklers. Hickman had followed Athey down the field and just as Athey was about to be tackled, he lateraled the ball to Wally, who continued to a touchdown behind some pretty interference by Master Athey. And did it fool the Indians? They were completely baffled, and it took them the rest of the half to figure out just how it all happened. A fair crowd turned out for the game Saturday, but the Corsairs are deserving of better support. The ...
