C. five, the Corsair's are preparing to invade the victor's court for a return game Saturday night. Coach Mishler was pleased with the showing made by his team last week but feels there is still much room for improvement and will drill his men hard this week on defense, passing and shooting.' The Corsair first team looked good but the reserves show many weaknesses. The Corsairs are out to defeat Pasadena Saturday, but will be in for a hard evening, as the Bulldogs are being boomed as potential Western Division champions. They showed lots of power last Friday, and the Corsairs will have to be in top form to defeat them. Coach Baker has a full team of men over six feet in height, which makes the Corsairs look like midgets in comparison. But what the Corsairs lack in hei...

TARGET PRACTICE ! SFOftT D4&T3 I [Newspaper Article] — Corsair — 17 December 1930
TARGET PRACTICE ! SFOftT D4&amp;T3 I "Junior College athletic events thus far have not had the support they deserve. Even the jaysee student body has been found wanting when rooting was needed. But revenge is sweet. Nonfollowers have missed some bangup contests." So says Frank Finch, sports editor of the Evening Outlook, in his column of comment —"Sport Shorts," Things are pretty bad . when a daily city newspaper comments on 'poor school spirit." But we've harped enough on that this year. An open letter to Santa Claus — Dear Santa: We know that times are hard and we shouldn't ask for too much, but, Santa, we have longed for this particular thing for years.. And it is spmething we can share with our friends, too. All we want is a new gymnasium, one with all the modern equipment that other schools have, including a basketball court with room for plenty of rooters. We hope that we are not asking for too much from you, but we've set our heart on this, and sincerely hope that you...
Pasadena J.C. Wins Over Corsair Five; Subs Given Chance [Newspaper Article] — Corsair — 17 December 1930
Pasadena J.C. Wins Over Corsair Five; Subs Given Chance It is said that time runs and runs. And so it did last Friday at the municipal auditorium while the Santa Monica Junior College basketball quintet was indulging in a practice session with the Bulldogs from Pasadena J. C. As a matter of fact, time went by very fast while the local subs were seeing action, and, as a result, Pasadena won, 40 to 32. Some substitute men saw action during the earlier part of the game and also at the beginning of the second half, chiefly, it seemed, to give Coaches Mishler and Dulin an ample opportunity to see what their men were capable of doing when pressed. Consequently the Bulldogs, by virtue of only fair playing, possessed an 18-to-17 lead at the end of the first half, and as the tilt wore on in the second half, the figures on the Pasadena'side of the scoreboard were gradually increasing, while Santa Monica's efforts were for naught. i The modification of the Corsairs'.lineup, however, was good t...

Year Book Will Rise In Price Next Semester Further work on "The Spindrift" will be carried on immediately, according to plans of the staff, who wish to get as much done as possible before examinations start. Considerable routine work is yet to be done in each department, and the heads of the various sections are working hard to get this done. The art department, which has what is perhaps the most exacting part of the year book, worked during vacation, and is now trying to get as much copy to the engravers as they can. The first of next week will usher in the beginning of the photographic work. At that time all the individual portraits it is possible to have taken before next semester will be handled by the photographer. A series of snapshot days will be sponsored quite soon, and all students are asked to get ready for these events.

Double Header on Program; Debaters Prepare for Feb. 5 [Newspaper Article] — Corsair — 7 January 1931
Double Header on Program; Debaters Prepare for Feb. 5 The second conference debate will be contested on February 5, with the Los Angeles Junior College negative team, at Los Angeles, and with the Fullerton affirmative team, here at Santa Monica. The debate comes at a very early date this time, not allowing a great deal of time for ractice debates and the smoothing out of the speeches. But those who heard the members of the last team say that such speakers should be quite capable of gaining good material and making a good showing in such a short time. The subject, "Resolved, that American colleges and universities are justified in paying the actual college expenses of their athletes," will afford a very interesting debate* due to the talk of the presence of professional athletes in college* at the present time. The actual expenses are not exceeding one thousand dollars. Special attention is called to the fact that there will be a very important meeting of the debating squad Wednesday...

GANG RULE SAYS MOUSTACHES, GO [Newspaper Article] — Corsair — 7 January 1931
GANG RULE SAYS MOUSTACHES, GO According to latest reports, Ted Gross has hurled defiance in the teeth of the S. M. J. C. ''barbers' association." At 12 noon today he still bor'e the manly herbage on his upper lip. At that same hour, however, the barber-in-chief was seen whetting his blade. The association's slogan is, " Not a Jayseeite shall wear one." The blade is reputed to be the same used by Kenneth Darby last year, when he sought to emulate the co-eds by taking care of his facial toilette during class time. George Arnold, Fred Tsheppe and Robert Bentley lost several weeks of hard labor devoted to cultivating premature manhood when one of the gym classes overpowered them and removed one side of their moustaches witlwan old razor found in the gym, which, it is reported, was used to sharper? pencils in the mechanical drawing class last year. Leaders of the anti-handball-moustaches (two on a side), report Andrews and Gross now on the spot. Thalen lost half of his moustache somewher...

Junior Colleges [Newspaper Article] — Corsair — 7 January 1931
Junior Colleges It has been reported that some of our time-honored universities have been hitting the junior colleges, apparently ridiculing the idea of them rather than making any specific charges against particular institutions, if sources of information are reliable. Just why this should be done it is difficult to say, for the benefits to be derived from such colleges are manifold, and the institution of them should be lauded rather than criticized. justified. The growing need was the increased enrollment in colleges which made it impossible for the olde'r, full-fledged colleges to handle those who wished to matriculate. As is usual in such cases, the standards of entrance were gradually raised until it was only possible for the very best students or those who were lucky (which covers a multitude of sins) to continue their educational work to a degree. But ther,e are other benefits which the junior college gives. To those who cannot afford to go to far-off places, the opportunity...
