Infinite Shoeblack Will Be Presented [Newspaper Article] — Corsair — 26 November 1930
Infinite Shoeblack Will Be Presented The Los Angeles Civic Repertory Theater, having just completed a very successful run of Bernard Shaw's brilliant and satiric play, "The Apple Cart," is opening the second production of its season, "The Infinite Shoeblack," a drama by Norman MacOwan. This drama is founded on Carlvle's lines, "Man's unhappiness, as I construe it, comes of his greatness. Will all the Prime Ministers, upholsterers and confectioners of Europe contrive, in a joint stock company, to make one shoeblack happy? They cannot achieve it for more than an hour. For the shoeblack also has a soul, quite apart from his stomach." If the play is chosen with the same care and perspicacity as "The Apple Cart," it is to be heartily recommended. A further review of the play will be included in the next issue. Father: So Jack has been injured and is coming home. Mother: Yes, he has sprained his ukulele finger.

Barks From The Balcony [Newspaper Article] — Corsair — 26 November 1930
Barks From The Balcony Now that football is all ovef we look for a great increase in the S. B. spirit. Oh, yes, we look for it like we have looked for it all year, but it would take a microscope to find it. And speaking of football, at last the harrassed coach at U. C. has resigned. We hope that the editor of the dally, and sundry other small-town philosophers who are for the coach when the team wins, and ready to cut his throat when it loses, are satisfied. Price was as good a coach as there is, and he certainly shows he is a man by blaming the team's showing this year on himself. Let this be an example for other coaches. Contrary to popular belief, the zoology class really received valuable information anent nature on its recent field trip. Whether they brought these samples back to school, we don't know, but we do appreciate the fact that they didn't bring any sharks back. And speaking of sharks. Now that there are so few weeks left for classes, we look for the advent of many sha...

Caravan Takes Zoologists To Portuguese Bay Forming a long procession of cars which started from Pico Bouelvard, just opposite the school buildings, students of the three zoology classes, numbering approximately seventy in all, left on the first zoological field trip of the year, at 10:30, November 19. In the caravan of cars there were nineteen student vehicles led by Mr. Bauer in his automobile. Traveling at a brisk pace, the group arrived at the lighthouse just outside of San Pedro, and halted to take a picture. Then they resumed the journey. On arriving at the locality that was to be combed for sea life, the cars were parked alongside the road, some four miles past the lighthouse. Lunch was eaten, and work was begun. Dividing into small groups, the zoologists strayed to various parts ?&gt;f the field in search of curios of sea life. Among the specimens found were small octopuses, small starfishes, sea anemones, sea cucumbers, sea-walnuts, sea urchins and sea snails. A smal...

Scientific German Will Be Taught In Advanced Division Scientific German is the future outlook of the German II class, instructed by Mr. Stromer, who discovered by a vote that a vast majority of the class is preparing for scientific or engineering courses.

The book is on the subject of physics, and is expected to give the students a working knowledge of scientific German.

Jaysee Orchestra Newly Organized After a great deal of propaganda, a Junior College Orchestra has been started and is now rehearsing every Tuesday evening from 8 to 9 p. m. in the High School auditorium, under the efficient leadership of Mrs. Williams.

Thanksgiving Aid To Needy Asked By "Y" [Newspaper Article] — Corsair — 26 November 1930
Thanksgiving Aid To Needy Asked By "Y" At the entrance to the administration office is located a large basket which has been placed there by the benefit committees of the Young Men's and Young Women's Christian Associations, for the donation of foodstuffs for the needy. Although a fair amount of offerings has been placed in the "needy" basket, the response in general has not been so great as one would expect to find in an institution as large as Santa Monica Junior College. Foodstuffs of any kind are welcomed, and the cupboards are in no danger of being crowded. Meet your share of the "right to give":—give to aid the n^edy.
Wieners And Kraut At German Meeting [Newspaper Article] — Corsair — 26 November 1930
Wieners And Kraut At German Meeting Tonight, at the meeting of the German Club, plans will be discussed for taking a trip to Los Angeles and visiting with one of the large German social organizations which exists there. The meeting will be held in the teachers' cafeteria, and will begin at 7:30. The club is handicapped, in that few students turn out for the meetings, and these few are having a hard time to get other students to attend. The club, after this year, will limit membership to students who have had German for one semester, but this year they invite all students talcing the language. Mr. Stromer, faculty adviser, says that meetings of this kind help make the students more interested in a difficult language, for they carry on the meeting in German. Wieners and sauerkraut will be served, and all students of German are invited.
Jaysee Women Beat High School Team [Newspaper Article] — Corsair — 26 November 1930
Jaysee Women Beat High School Team The feminine Corsairs came through with another victory last Tuesday by downing the High School honorary team with a big score for the J. C. women. The game was played preceding the High School basketball spread, which was held in the teachers' cafe. The J. C. women were invited to the spread. A delicious dinner was served, and a peppy program was enjoyed by all. Now that the basketball season is over, and specdball is in full swing, the J. C. women are going to have a hard fight to keep up with the High School speedball teams. The speedball team requires at least fifteen players, and so far only eleven have signed up. With all the good work that the basketball team has done this term, the women should try to keep up the standard. The team meets every Tuesday and Thursday during the seventh period and after school.
New System to Force Study Is Employed [Newspaper Article] — Corsair — 26 November 1930
New System to Force Study Is Employed Just blank, oppressing silence, and then a hissing, snake-like sound when many deep breaths were taken, was the result of a startled class in Social and Political History of Europe. Mr. Sandmeyer announced a test —and then quite calmly stated, two days later, that there would be no test. After class the instructor was put through a rigorous cross-examination, and it was discovered that Mr. Sandmeyer has a simple but effective system. His replay ran: "Have to make you study for a change, don't I?" Did they study? Say, the lamps are still oily from the night before! "Where are you going, little flea? "I'm going to the dogs."
"Y" Club Hears Osterholt Talk On College Activity [Newspaper Article] — Corsair — 26 November 1930
"Y" Club Hears Osterholt Talk On College Activity "College activity and its value in later life" was the subject matter of a talk given to the members of the Santa Monica Junior College division of the Y. M. C. A. by Mr. W. R. B. Osterholt, instructor of mathematics in the Junior College, at the meeting of the Association Monday evening, November 24. Several selections were offered by the "Y" quartet for the entertainment and approval of the membership. The quartet is one of the salient features of the Association's social side. Following the talk and musical program were refreshment for the members and guests. It is an axiom with the executives that refreshment will keep the fire burning, and pave the way for the discussion which must follow. Looming up before the Association are a number of big events on the Y calendar. Several conventions of the Young Men's Christian Association are to be held in the near future, and the discussion naturally resolved itself about the personnel bf...
J. C. Geologists Will Visit Santa Suzanna [Newspaper Article] — Corsair — 26 November 1930
J. C. Geologists Will Visit Santa Suzanna The next geology trip will be made to Santa Suzanna, near Simi, which district is rich in marine sedimentary formations. The area is very well known to geologists, and frequent parties visit there, especially the local colleges and universities. The entire day will be given over to the study of the varied structures, and specimens will be fathered showing the marine shells and fossils of the past geologic ages. The class is looking forward to the trip with much enthusiasm, as these topics have been studied in class for the past two weeks. Here is a clipping from an obscure but interesting paper: "Mr. Hank Smith has returned to his home aftet having been graduated from the university. Young Mr. Smith plans to enter business with his father, Mr. H. Smith, our prominent retired farmer." — Notre Dame Juggler.
CORSAIRS CRUSH CITRUS IN FINAL [Newspaper Article] — Corsair — 26 November 1930
CORSAIRS CRUSH CITRUS IN FINAL Local Football Season Closed With Smashing Victory Over Citrus J. C.; Entire Team Plays Faultless Game While a cold, tempestuous zephyr, said to be blustering from the north, raged, howled and blew the dust of Samohi field into thin air, a spectacle "worthy of note was occurring last Saturday—the shoving into oblivion of the Citrus Junior College football team by the Santa Monica Junior College Corsairs! The final score was 35 to 0. It was again a perfectly functioning and primed up' Mishler line and backfield that did the trick, but there happened to be one individual gentleman who was more conspicuous, both visibly and audibly, in his treks up and down the gridiron. This was Mr. Nes Enrico, chunky S. M. fullback, who, filled with vivacity, and showing the briskness, dash, nimbleness and agility of a loose young colt prancing upon the greensward of a pasture, ran wild, scoring three touchdowns and converting all five of the Corsair tallies via the dro...
PRACTICE [Newspaper Article] — Corsair — 26 November 1930
PRACTICE The Corsairs staged a glorious battle against Citrus J. C. in the final game of the grid season here Saturday. It was an inspired team that Coach Floyd Mishler sent out on the gridiron to do battle with the Owls from Citrus. The Corsairs completely outplayed and outfought the visitors, showing superiority in every department of the game. The highly touted line of the invaders failed to show before the forward wall of the fighting Corsairs. The outstanding player for Citrus was Mler, one-armed fullback and safety man. Any boy, handicapped as Mler is, that can playfootball like he can, deserves a great big hand. For the Corsairs, Nestor Enrico showed the visitors some fancy tricks that had the blue-and-whlte team completely baffled. The bonecrushing Italian looked a likely candidate for all-conference fullback with his sparkling open field running and powerful line plunges. Nes scored three of the Corsairs' five touchdowns, and kicked goal after all five. Not so bad. And so e...
Basketball Takes Stage As Pigskin Sport Makes Exit [Newspaper Article] — Corsair — 26 November 1930
Basketball Takes Stage As Pigskin Sport Makes Exit And now old man football has faded out of the picture for another year, attention will be given to the grand old game of putting the casaba through the hoop—otherwise known as basketball. The Corsair hoopsters have been going through preliminary workouts for several weeks, and are gradually rounding into shape. Fundamentals have been stressed by Coach J. E. !)ulin, with pivoting, passing, dribbling and shooting taking up most of the time. A short, snappy scrimmage at the end of each session sends the team to the showers in fine fettle. Up to this time, the basketball team has been practicing only twice a week, but now that the pigskin sport is over, the squad will report daily. The team is having difficulty in finding a place to practice, the high school sharing the gym with the Jaysee squad. Outstanding Outstanding in the preliminary workouts have been J. Moore, Zundel, Jackman and C Moore at guards; Guida at center; Pride, Thomas,...
