Spanish Club To Attend "Bad Man" Assembly Planned [Newspaper Article] — Corsair — 3 December 1930
Spanish Club To Attend "Bad Man" Assembly Planned Evelyn was the hostess at the Spanish Club meeting held at her home last Wednesday, November 26. Members have decided to witness a performance of "The Bad Man" Wednesday, December 10, the date their next meeting. During the business meeting plans for the assembly of January IS were discussed. Out of the varied and numerous suggestions a Spanish street scene was chosen as the most appropriate presentation. Miss Adele Winn has been given the task of writing the act. The program of the evening included several violin solos by Evelyn Clemens, and a group of Spanish songs, played on the piano by Margaret Johnson. Miss Cook read a poem in Spanish—-a sentimental affair which caused bickering laughter. During the course of the evening, especially while the luncheon lasted, several members became rather slack in their Spanish, and were prone to use their native language for communication of ideas. The result —plenty of pennies in the treasury...
Barks From The Balcony [Newspaper Article] — Corsair — 3 December 1930
Barks From The Balcony Well, next Saturday night we will know justwho is the best team in the country. Sports writers will either be handing out the "I told you so" or will be explaining to subscribers just how they happened to pick the wrong team. As for us, we won't say whom we expect to win, but we wouldn't bet the ring off a White Owl against a truckload of Russian rubles on the outcome. The score will be —see next week's issue. And now we have to get all pepped up for the basketball season. If we can only awaken a little of that dormant student body spirit we can have a highly successful season. Last year in competition much stronger than we will have to face this season, we ended up with a .500 average. Let's get behind the team and boost that at least twice as high. Those who haven't a job for the Christmas vacation might just as well not look for one now; it is just too late. Every available position has been signed up for by at least five students, as near as we can find ou...
HUMOR [Newspaper Article] — Corsair — 3 December 1930
HUMOR "Let's go play tennis." "We can't; there's no net." "Fine; it's always in my way, anyway." Dr. Bradford: Why were you late? Weil: The bell rang before I got here. Mother: I first met your father at a dance. Son: Ah ha! So that's why Father tells me to keep away from dance halls. Vallon: Are they still going together? Frederics: Who? Vallon: Your feet! "Well, what's the matter with the car you bought from us a week ago?" "Every part of it makes a noise except the horn." Ike (in drug store): I want to buy a plow. Druggist: I'm sorry, sir, but we have no plows. Ike: What a bum drug store! Henn: I want some tires. Salesman: Balloon tires? Henn: Naw, automobile tires. Delp: I'll do anything I can, Warden. Warden: Well, don't put yourself out. Judge: Before being sentenced, have you anything to say? Barber: Yes, your honor, I'd like to shave the prosecuting attorney just once. "I like a girl who can take a joke." "Then you stand a good chance of being accepted."

Association Meets At Fresno on Dec. 5 Dr. Ralph H. Bush and Mr. W. F. Barnum will both attend the meeting of the Southern California Association of Junior Colleges when it meets in Fresno Friday.

Cosmo Club Debates [Newspaper Article] — Corsair — 3 December 1930
Cosmo Club Debates Despite the fact that only a few of the Cosmopolitan Club members were present at the last meeting, the program, if it may be called such, was lively and interesting. It was in the form of a heated debate, discussing the efficacy of India gaining her independence. The subject was discussed from many angles, the club being quite equally divided. Miss Rae Booth has invited the club to meet at her home for the next meeting, which will be held tonight.
Corsair Hoopsters Show Improvement In Practice Game [Newspaper Article] — Corsair — 3 December 1930
Corsair Hoopsters Show Improvement In Practice Game With football season over and the squad bolstered by the enlistment of a number of football men, the S. M. J. C. basketball team is rapidly rounding into shape. The squad has improved with every practice session and by the time the conference season opens, the Corsairs will be able to present a formidable quintet. Coach Dulin has stressed fundamentals in the preliminary work, but soon plays will be given and the team picked. With the moleskins put away for another year, Coach Mishler will be able to give all his time to the Corsair basketeers. With two such able coaches at the helm of the Corsair ship, the local casaba artists should go a long way in the quest of an eastern division title. The Corsair quintet has played several practice games and, although showing a real scoring punch, looked sloppy in spots. Last Wednesday the Corsairs lost a hard fought game to the Long Beach Junior College five. The invaders presented a strong, ...

Ted Greenlaw In Critical State [Newspaper Article] — Corsair — 3 December 1930
Ted Greenlaw In Critical State Students of Santa Monica Junior College are earnestly hoping for the speedy recovery of Ted Greenlaw, former S. M. J. C. plunging fullback and popular student, who was recently struck with a severe attack of appendicitis and pneumonia. Ted at present is confined in the Cedars of Lebanon Hospital in Hollywood. He is in a very critical condition. Formerly weighing 180 pounds, Ted now scales 135, having lost 45 pounds, an almost unbelievable figure. In the final conference grid game with Citrus, Greenlaw was on the bench in football togs. Although his entire side was taped up, and not realizing how serious his predicament really was even then, he was anxious to go into the game once more to fight for the Corsairs. On November 24, only two days after the game, he was operated on, although his appendix had already broken, and his condition developed into pneumonia. Appearing to have been in a perfect state of health only two short weeks ago, the plucky form...

TARGET PRACTICE [Newspaper Article] — Corsair — 3 December 1930
TARGET PRACTICE Now that the pigskin season is over, it is only right and proper that we throw a few bouquets. First, of course, a 'great big one to the team. The marvelous spirit of co-operation displayed by every member of the team is worthy of the praise of every member of the student body and faculty. The season started rather disastrously for the Corsairs, who dropped their first two conference games by large margins. But that old Corsair spirit and fight could not be stamped out, and, after a defeat, the team just forgot all about the defeat and looked forward to the next game and with a vengeance. Fighting against tremendous odds, the team finally hit its stride and ran amuck the last two games, to run up 68 points to 0 for its two opponents. Enough praise cannot be given to Coach Floyd Mishler for his work with the team. Starting the season with green material and without sufficient reserve strength, Mishler worked tirelessy to put out a winning team. He had the difficult jo...

FIRST ROUND OF DEBATES TAKEN [Newspaper Article] — Corsair — 10 December 1930
FIRST ROUND OF DEBATES TAKEN Existence Of Two Sides Proved By Orange And Gray, 3-0 and 2-1 Cargill And Redden Each Especially Commended For Their Very Able Handling Of Rebuttal Speeches Much to the joy of S. M. J. C. students, and to the chagrin of the Compton adherents, the Corsair debaters emerged with their first conference win in the debate schedule. The subject, "Resolved, that American industry should adopt the forty-hour week," was of interest to the students and faculty attending the debate, and after the contest small groups wece in evidence, still dis- r cussing the question. The d ebate was further enlivened by a clever display of both wit and near personal combat on the part of the forensic artists. Until the time that Miss Virginia Cargill started her rebuttal, the audience was aware of the fact that Compton had until then had the better of the going. A perusal of the judges' ballots further bears out this statement. The rebuttal of both sides was clevei, in that many c...
