Jaysee Women Win [Newspaper Article] — Corsair — 19 November 1930
Jaysee Women Win The Jaysee women's six came through with another victory last Thursday, November 6, by defeating the High School sophomore girls, known as the best feminine basketball players of the High School. They gave the feminine Corsairs a good fight, but the J. C. women showed a little more skill at hanging on to the ball than the sophs did. This game was the third in a series that has been planned for the J. C. and High School. The Corsair women have been victorious in all three games. In the very near future, November 13, an honorary team will be picked from all the High School teams, and this team to play the J. C. women. It was suggested that the J. C. faculty and students be invited, which will in all probability be done. Watch for the date. Come out to this last game and show the feminine Corsairs we are behind them. The Lettermen's Club watch charms have arrived and are being distributed to the members this week. The design is on sterling silver, with a Corsair head a...
Greater Support Needed If Year Book To Succeed [Newspaper Article] — Corsair — 26 November 1930
Greater Support Needed If Year Book To Succeed Art Work To Equal That Of University Publications "If the student body really wants a yearbook of which they will be proud, it is up to them to support the circulation campaign which is lagging behind," says Arthur Redden, editor of the "Spin Drift." The campaign has been under way for over a week now, and, according to latest reports, only a few students have really signed up. There have been plenty of promises to buy, but tangible evidence, in the way of money, is necessary before the students can be assured of a worthwhile publication. The art work for the issue will be something vastly different than that used in the past for yearbooks. Frank Michel and his assistants promise that the art work will be on a par with other college publications, and no time is being wasted in fulfilling that promise. The theme, which is ships, has untold possibilities in the way of work of this kind, and the subject will be thoroughly covered. Grey is ...

Barometer Charts Spin-Drift Sales [Newspaper Article] — Corsair — 26 November 1930
Barometer Charts Spin-Drift Sales A sales barometer has been placed in the hall leading to the Junior College balcony, which will picture the trend of the sales for the Spin-Drift as the weeks go by.

Spanish and English these signs announce the yearbook.
ATTENDANCE CUT BY ZOOLOGY TRIP [Newspaper Article] — Corsair — 26 November 1930
ATTENDANCE CUT BY ZOOLOGY TRIP When zoology students went on their field trip, classes in the Junior College showed a decided shrinkage. Classes averaging twenty students a day were almost annihilated, finding themselves with an insignificant four, five and six members. One of the biggest classes in the Junior College, Dr. Bradford's philosophy I group, found its forty-five members narrowed down to about thirty-five, but there were more than enough left to carry on business, which some of the smaller classes found was beyond them. So, drawing one's conclusions from the facts, zoology is rather a popular subject; and, irrelevantly, but truly enough, philosophers always get stuck.

Y.W.G.A. Plays Host To College Women [Newspaper Article] — Corsair — 26 November 1930
Y.W.G.A. Plays Host To College Women The membership committee of the Y. W. C. A. has been busy the past week distributing invitations to all of the women students in the college, and as a result there were several new members attending the pot-luck and swim last Monday evening. After the dinner the girls divided into the two interest groups: handcraft and bridge. Those girls wishing to learn to play bridge better have the opportunity of practicing. At the close of the meeting all of the girls joined in playing bridge.
CHICAGO UNIVERSITY OUTLINES NEW PLAN [Newspaper Article] — Corsair — 26 November 1930
CHICAGO UNIVERSITY OUTLINES NEW PLAN A startling new development in college education is to be inaugurated by the University of Chicago—a plan by which a student may receive a B. A. degree in any coarse when he feels sufficiently equipped to pass a comprehensive examination in that course. If the experiment is successful, it probably will be applied to such professional courses as law and medicine, but if the plan is not proved practical within five years, it will be revised or discarded entirelv.
U.S.C. Battles Washington [Newspaper Article] — Corsair — 26 November 1930
U.S.C. Battles Washington Those having an appetite for football on Thanksgiving Day can make no mistake in traveling to the Los Angeles Coliseum, where a fighting team from Washington University will attempt to stem thetide.of the famous Trojan power play. The Huskies boast a smooth running attack, with Merle Hufford, halfback, the big noise of the northern team. Coach Howard Jones plans to start his full strength against the invaders, to guard against an upset. The Trojans are pointing for Notre Dame, and will get a good practice for the Irish, as Coach Jimmy Phelan uses the Rockne system.
Alphas Convene; Plan For Future As Organization [Newspaper Article] — Corsair — 26 November 1930
Alphas Convene; Plan For Future As Organization First Class To Organize Elects Student Officers The Alpha class met Tuesday at 10 a. m. Gilman Rankin, temporary chairman of that group, opened the meeting. After reading the minutes, Freddie Jackman, temporary secretary of the group, read the constitution, which was unanimously adopted. Because it is so late in the term, it was moved, seconded and passed that the articles in the constitution regarding voting be suspended, and election of officers be held during the assembly. The following officers were elected: President, Burton Anakin; Vice-Presi-dent, Fred Jackman; Secretary-Treasurer, Gilman Rankin. Mr. Rankin seems to be quite the man about town; he was put up for every office and only lost by a short margin in the first two, and won the third with a big majority. The women felt cheated because there was no one on the cabinet to represent them, so it was suggested that the three women who were put up for office be appointed on the...
Botanists Anticipate Trip [Newspaper Article] — Corsair — 26 November 1930
Botanists Anticipate Trip Students of Mr. Bauer's botany class anticipate a field trip in the offing now that the zoology classes' have had theirs. It seems as if they draw a deeply satisfying inference from the other classes' good luck, and would deeply resent being denied a similar experience. Among botany students, the big question of the present is: '"When do we get our field trip?"

Thanksgiving Aid [Newspaper Article] — Corsair — 26 November 1930
Thanksgiving Aid There is a time in every year when we honor the men and women who came to this country over three hundred years ago; at that time we not only pay homage to their courage perseverance, but we celebarte the good cheer of the foregoing year and give up thanks in a whirl of festivities. To most of us Thanksgiving is a symbol of turkey, candied sweet-potatoes, stuffing, cranberry sauce, and a host of other delicacies. But, after all, is that Thanksgiving? We gather in small groups to enjoy the day; not like the men and women of a bygone age do we gather in one great family and together experience the happiness which should be rampant. Today, that is beyond our power; to share our happiness in a common celebration with the world. But we may give of our material wealth to those who are in need; we may cheer them up with wholesome food. We may make them learn of Thanksgiving Day, and teach them that "beyond the clouds and srtioke shines a golden sun. We may bring happiness ...
Thanksgiving [Newspaper Article] — Corsair — 26 November 1930
Thanksgiving A grateful heart is a joyful one, for joy and gratitude go hand in hand. Let us then, as students of the Santa Monica Junior College, enumerate the blessings that give us cause for gratitude: first, we have a very earnest and efficient faculty; second, an excellent co-operating student body; third, enthusiastic student body officers; fourth, a beatuiful campus; fifth, a useful library; sixth, a well-equipped science department; seventh, a successful college newspaper; eighth, a yearbook in the making; ninth, a promising debate team, and tenth, hard-fighting athletic teams. In addition to these we could mention numerous others of minor importance, all essential, however, for the success and progress of our college. Having thus considered our blessings, perhaps we have now come to the conclusion that Thanksgiving Day is only the climax of a naturally continuous round of thanksgiving lasting throughout the three hundred and sixty-five days of the year; or, to express it in...
For Those Who Don't Think [Newspaper Article] — Corsair — 26 November 1930
For Those Who Don't Think It seems nes«ssary that we come back to that old question of just when do people around here grow up. It would certainly seem that after attending this institution for a little over two months, students would catch on, or, in other words, "wise up," to the fact that they are attending an institution which is doing its best to be condpcted under college standards, and not under those of institutions a little lower on the ladder. The point is, why do students insist on walking in on the middle of a lecture to interrupt the instructor with some inconsequential question or demand. When you sit in a class and see someone come dashing in that way on a surprised class and instructor, you begin to wonder just what it is that motivates such people Perhaps if people like this woula think first and act afterwards, this place might manage to hold on to a little of the necessary college atmosphere when it comes this way.
