TARGET PRACTICE [Newspaper Article] — Corsair — 10 December 1930
TARGET PRACTICE The bouncing of spheres, the swishing of baskets, the hurryingscurrying of feet on the hardwood floor are all audible and visible, now that basketball season will make its debut in the Corsair institution. Expectations at present are not within the realm of a "Happy days are here again" chirp, but, on the other hand, there is no pessimism in the atmosphere. Things look alright by our Nell; yessiree. Basketball practice, now in progress under Coaches Floyd Mishler and John Dulin, is going at a great clip in Santa Monica Junior College. Five returning lettermen —Bill Athey, Royal Delp, Wally Hickman, Duane Stevenson and Vic Thomas—bolster the squad considerably. That's a consolation, eh what? The squad will be slashed to fifteen men, although there are in the vicinity of thirty men out at the present time. Among the prospects, besides the lettermen, is Aiden Burks, who last season performed in the first four games, but was declared ineligible for the remainder of the c...

Y. M. Luncheon Is Attended By City Officials The finishing touches were being added today to what is believed to be the best all-college luncheon ever given by the local Y. M. C. A. The Carmel Hotel dining room, the scene of today's festivities, has been completely and expertly decorated in the theme of the college colors. Along the tables were arranged five centerpieces which consisted of bowls, of orange flowers around which were crisscrossed streamers of orange and gray crepe. Directly behind the speaker's stand hung the immense "Y" Club banner, providing a brilliant orange-and-gray background. The place cards consisted of many-small orange cards, each of which bore a tiny yuletide design in honor of the Christmas season. Word was received last night by the committee in charge that Frank Helton, city commissioner of fiifance, had reserved a place, and that many other city officials were expected, thus testifying to the notice the luncheon is receiving off the campus.

J. C. MUSIC CLUB GIVES PROGRAM [Newspaper Article] — Corsair — 17 December 1930
J. C. MUSIC CLUB GIVES PROGRAM A note of the Jaysee Christmas spirit was first sounded by the Associated Women Students with a generous distribution of miniature Christmas trees; however, it took the Music Club really to express the spirit fully with their assembly program of Christmas carols. First on the program came Verna Kendall, who played Calver's Christmas Fantasia. A spirit of soothing calm enveloped the assembly, and grew into a madding desire for the Unknown. The Junior College women's trio rendered two selections, Panis Angelicus b Franclc, and Arise Shine for Thy Light Has Come, by Elvey. The trio is composed of Winifred Andrews, first soprano; Evelyn Miller, mezzo-soprano, and Adele Winn, alto.

Christmas Vacation [Newspaper Article] — Corsair — 17 December 1930
Christmas Vacation Now that Christmas vacation is at hand, just what, it may be asked, is a student's idea of vacation? Perhaps no single answer will be satisfactory, for the views held concerning the use of leisure time are many and varied. There are those students who look forward to this vacation as a more or less continuous round of pleasure. There are those who have found jobs that will take up most of their attention. There are those who have no definite plans regarding their holiday activities except idleness and aimlessness. Then there are those who look upon this vacation as an excellent opportunity to strengthen their scholastic weaknesses and perhaps to raise their grade of failure to one of success. Now, since we are all attending college with the view mainly of obtaining personal success, is not the idea of vacation as a timely opportunity for further study the most satisfactory and pleasant? Some may argue that a quiet rest is necessary, but how many students can reall...
New Spirit for Jaysee [Newspaper Article] — Corsair — 17 December 1930
New Spirit for Jaysee Last Thursday, when the Alphas met the upper classmen in the first clash ever to be held between classes at the Junior College, there came into being something new, something which we, who have been here for more than a year, have not felt before; loyalty of a new order and a deeper feeling of patriotism arose from the splashing of muddy waters into the realization that we, too, have traditions; that we no longer are a number of individual students, but a group of loyal Corsairs welded into a single family; that we can always look back upon the "old jaysee" and see in it everything that is to be wanted. Class struggle, with us, will lead to a new solidarity among the entire student body, although it may sound like a paradox. And how can we show this new enthusiasm, this new spirit of co-operation and loyalty? Right now, we have a splendid basketball team, which is going to put up a mighty good scrap for divisional rating. Come out to the games! It is fine sport...
