Is This Night? [Newspaper Article] — Corsair — 17 December 1930
Is This Night? It is curious to notice how gradually, but how entirely, the old courtesy of men giving up their seats to women to save them standing in train or bus has become a thing of the past. Five years ago any woman entering a crowded compartment would have been fairly sure to be offered a seat by some good Samaritan of a man whose sense of chivalry towards the weaker sex was still strong. Now it is the exception to find a man rising to resign his seat to any woman, however charming sfee may be. It is not a sign of discourtesy in men; it is just significant of the change in woman's status, and, as she has worked for it and clamoured for it, she certainly ought not to grumble. And yet, old-fashioned as I am, I can't help regretting just a little that old time courtesy. It didn't cost much, and it was very plfeasdnt.
LITERARY [Newspaper Article] — Corsair — 17 December 1930
LITERARY JOURNEY'S END. Novel by R. C. Sherriff and Vernon Bartlett). When R. C. Sherriff, in the hospital recovering from wounds after two and a half years of the War, first determined to write something which would tell people what war meant to the men who fought it, he conceived "Journey's End" as a novel. But he wrote it, then, as the play which has swept the world —"the play that should end war." Now Mr. Sherriff, with the help of his friend Vernon Bartlett, the novelist, presents "Journey's End" according to his original plan, in novel form. Released from the rigid conventions of the drama, the novelists have filled in the*great story of youth and sacrifice with richer detail, wider background, and deeper colors. The story begins with Raleigh's and Stanhope's boyhood in England. New characters are introduced, and the romance, only touched upon in the play, is developed fully and poignantly.

Barks From The Balcony [Newspaper Article] — Corsair — 17 December 1930
Barks From The Balcony The Alpha class will have to find out now who filled the hole, and also who took the rope. They will admit, though, that the subject of mental proficiency will have to be settled at a later date. They may possess the brawn, but we insist that the upper class has the edge in gray matter. Students' minds will have to turn to politics soon, with the Student Body elections about to come off. Let's get together and elect those candidates, who will continue to carry on the good work of those commissions of the past What ha.ppened to that half day holiday we were counting on this week? Before changing their minds in the future, we wish "authorities" would realize that a shock of the kind they gave may prove serious some time. The big crowd at the letter-award assembly is to be commended on its fortitude and patience. Any person who could sit through what they did and not be gassed is indeed a hero.
CAMPUS CHUCKLES [Newspaper Article] — Corsair — 17 December 1930
CAMPUS CHUCKLES Mrs. Orr: An anonymous person is one who does not wish to be known. Who is laughing? Usual rear seat voice: An anonymous person. Knows His Hardware An Army junior had a quiz in science. The question was: "Define a bolt and a nut and explain the difference, if any." The boy wrote: "A bolt is a thing like a stick of hard metal such as iron with a square bunch at one end and a lot of scratching wound around the other end. A nut is similar to a bolt, only just the opposite, being a hole in a little chunk of iron sawed off short with wrinkles around the inside of the hole." —Exchange. "What does it mean by 'being candid'?" "Speaking unto others, as you would not have them speak to you." Watson (who is seasick): I say, old boy, what about turning back now? After vou've seen one wave, you've seen them all. "Listen," remarked the exasperated driver over his shoulder, "'Lindbergh got to Paris without any advice from the back seat." Prof.: I'll not go on with this lecture till...
Junior College Is Notified of Missing Books [Newspaper Article] — Corsair — 17 December 1930
Junior College Is Notified of Missing Books "Several books have been reported missing from the library, and those books were placed on the Junior College reserve shelf," according to Dr. Bradford, instructor of philosophy. Me continued further to say that the missing books are on the subject of philosophy, thus lending a distinct inference as to the probable disappearance of them. "It has not only been a thoughtless thing to do, but it has inconvenienced many students who were reading the books daily, in the library, for their reports," the instructor stated. He advised the immediate return of the books, or investigation and punishment would be meted out. As the reports are due today at the seventh period, only a limited number of hours will be left for the consummation of book reports by those who have begun the work only to find the book gone.

COULSON WILL GIVE NIGHT SCHOOL COURSE A course in modern literature, to be conducted by Edwin R. Coulson, has been announced by the Santa Monica Evening High School.

Registration is scheduled for January sixth, at the opening of school after the Christmas holidays. Mr. Coulson expects a large turnout of J. C. apple-polishers.
AND STILL THEY CALL THEM THE WEAKER SEX [Newspaper Article] — Corsair — 17 December 1930
AND STILL THEY CALL THEM THE WEAKER SEX PORTLAND, ME., Dec. 7 (UP) —Football isn't such a bad game after all—for girls. Though suffering from minor bruises and scratches —the result of their clash on a frozen gridiron here Saturday—girls of the Pi Kappa and Epsilon Tau Sigma sororities of Deering High School tonight indicated they would like to meet in another game —but not this year. Orris Merrill, 115-pound quarterback, who led th? Pi Kappas to an 8-6 triumph over their sorority sisters, gave Wallace Card (a man, of course), coach of the tea m, full credit for the win.

Debate Squad Has Help Collecting Useful Material [Newspaper Article] — Corsair — 17 December 1930
Debate Squad Has Help Collecting Useful Material At the end of each circus parade a crowd of children and even ( older persons can be seen trudging along behind the calliope, and after each election a crowd of people gather around the victor, both of these groups of people having in mind the one idea—that of "getting on the band wagon." A team working towards a championship is one that can get quite a bit of support, and also can gather many people around who will claim a part in the victories. This may be likened to a ship with barnacles. Each growth on the vessel thinks it has a right to be there, yet it is a hindrance and not a help to the craft. The debate team at present is occupying an enviable position in the league standings, and no doubt some people will claim to have had a great fjart in the shaping of the team, yet these few are presenting the wrong impression to the student body. About fifteen people were on the squad, and all contributed definite help. And not only thes...

Men Look On At Dance [Newspaper Article] — Corsair — 17 December 1930
Men Look On At Dance "Not so good!" was the opinion of a number of the women students, concerning the last student body dance, given during the "x" period. "I mean," one of them amended, "what's the matter with the fellows? Are they frightened?" At least it seems that way, for, although a number of the male sex attended the dance, one could see them sitting around in groups and looking on as the women danced together.

Zoologists Select Research Projects [Newspaper Article] — Corsair — 17 December 1930
Zoologists Select Research Projects Projects for term papers are no\. being selected by students of Miss L. Mainard's class in zoology 11, so as to comply with the requisite that term papers be submitted befor* the end of the semester in order to assure eligibility for a passing grade. Any subiect pertaining to the study of animal life is open to selection, with the approval of the instructor. With the term paper must be given some corroboration of individual research or experimental work on the topic Among those studies chosen for actual experimental work arc: construction of a frog's skeleton, taxidermy, and investigation with ants. It seems, though, that the field of research work will be richer in work concerning the latter semester, although a report on animals studied during the iirst semester will be accepted.
"They Shall Not Pass" for Motto [Newspaper Article] — Corsair — 17 December 1930
"They Shall Not Pass" for Motto Interrupting his lecture on the World War iust long enough to give credit where it is due, Mr. Sandmeyer stated his indebtedness to the valiant French of the siege of Verdun, saying: "It is to the French that we instructors owe our motto." Here he paused for effect (it is supposed). "They shall not pass" were the words which rolled off his tongue. It might have been effective, especially! with the frowning furrows threatening! from Mr. Sandmeyer's forehead, on a class I of frosh, but, after a year's experience i with him, the class just closed a lazy eye ! and grinned at the ominous frown. Somehow, Mr. Sandmeyer can't make: himself be taken seriously on those words. I In the "Junior College Journal" the! article printed concerning the enrollment j at the Santa Monica Junior College was taken from the Samojac. Among the interesting items listed is the fact that! there are twenty-eight universities represented, as well as fifty-eight high schools.
Award Letters In Assembly to Football Squad [Newspaper Article] — Corsair — 17 December 1930
Award Letters In Assembly to Football Squad Meeting in the large auditorium to observe the awarding of football letters to the team, the student body of the Junior College was called to order by President Royal Delp, who then turned the meeting over to Frank Watson, commissioner of athletics. Then, in turn, Watson introduced Coach Floyd Mishler, who gave a brief talk on the meritorious work of Santa Monica Junior College's first varsity eleven. Coach Mishler complimented the squad on its spirited fight during the last half of the season, thereby coming out in a satisfactory position on the percentage column after two reverses were incurred at the beginning of the season. "If the team had been in the same condition during the first half of the season as during the last half of the schedule," Coach Mishler stated, "we might have seen a championship team." But, as this was Santa Monica's first effort in football, tha team lacked the essential nucleus around which early-season games mig...
Faculty Conference Door Locks Queerly [Newspaper Article] — Corsair — 17 December 1930
Faculty Conference Door Locks Queerly Somewhat of a mystery came t° the young halls of our Junior College when the door to the faculty conference room closed rather uncannily upon its sole occupant of the time and locked him in. Mr. E,. Coulson was at his desk when the door closed. When time for the next class came around, Mr. Coulson, on the inside, and other instructors, happening to be a leisure on the outside, found that the door was securely locked, and the knob was missing. A good deal of fruitless effort was expended upon the door, but it was to no avail. With a grim determination to meet his class (perhaps he suspected something), the English instructor sneaked out to the balcony by way of the window adjoining the faculty room. Later the doorknob was found by Mr. Kepner, also of the English department.
