Is Crashing the Gate to Continue ? [Newspaper Article] — Corsair — 3 December 1930
Is Crashing the Gate to Continue ? At the game with Citrus last Saturday admittance free of charge was refused a group of young fellows when a Corsair student attempted to talk his friends past an alert guard. Not being successful in getting his friends through the gate by persuasion, he resorted to guile. The Corsair student entered the gate on the right given him by ownership of the student body ticket. He entered the stadium and almost immediately left, demanding a pass as he went out. He repeated this maneuver until he had enough passes to allow his friends to enter without purchasing tickets. Then he entered again, showing his student body ticket*. Commendable loyalty to Santa Monica Junior College! Fine spirit in lending oneself to such an underhanded business. The Junior College can make use of all the financial support it is given by the citizens of Santa Monica, and when students begin to use such methods of smuggling in friends, the box office total will suffer. Football, ...
Things Seem To Have Changed [Newspaper Article] — Corsair — 3 December 1930
Things Seem To Have Changed "Every man to his own opinion, but speak not for another without his consent!" A very good rule. But he who puts his finger in the pudding once and is not caught comes back again for more. Not being so fortunate the second time, it seems the confident person sticks his finger in something under the surface —a steel-jawed trap. So it appears with our good friend the editor of the Daily Californian. First he drew the spotlight on himself with a ruthless and entirely unprovoked attack upon the junior college movement. He basked in the limelight of publicity, and used a student journal to express his opinions. Now he has attacked a large university, and in finding himself the center of public attention has drawn down the condemnation of the public upon his institution. All through the State of California are junior college students who have planned to attend the University of California, who have lent their moral support to the University, who have been eager...

The Press [Newspaper Article] — Corsair — 3 December 1930
The Press By RUDYARD KIPLING The Soldier may forget his Sword, The Sailorman the Sea, The Mason may forget the Word And the Priest his Litany; The Maid may forget both jewel and gem, And the Bride her wedding-dress— But the Jew shall forget Jerusalem Ere we forget the Press! Who once hath stood through the loaded hour Ere, roaring like the gale, The Harrild and the Hoe devour Their league-long paper-bale, And has lit his pipe in the morning calm That follows the midnight stressHe hath sold his heart to the old Black Art We call the daily Press. Who once hath dealt in the wildest game That all of a man can play, No later love, no larger fame Will lure him long away.

The Pope may launch his Interedict, The Union its decree, But the bubble is blown and the bubble is pricked By Us and such as We. Remember the battle and stand aside While Thrones...
