CAMPUS CHUCKLES [Newspaper Article] — Corsair — 7 January 1931
CAMPUS CHUCKLES Mr. Sandmeyer: San Nicolas! San Nicolas! para donde vas? Que me trSiras? San Nicolas: Je ne sais pas! Ich weiss nicht! Jag ej vet! Yonose! I don't know! "Now," said Fred to his dad, at the football game, "you'll see more excitement for a dollar than you ever saw before." "I don't know," his dad answered. "That's what my marriage license cost me." And there was the absent-minded professor who figured out what makes the absent-minded professor absent-minded, and then forgot the answer. He: I had to come clear across the room to see you, so I just want to kiss you. She: I'm glad you weren't in the next block. Dr. Bradford: Today I'm going to talk on the psychology of liars. How many of you people read chapter 30? Every hand went up in the psychology class. Dr Bradford: Good, you are the first class to whom I wish to speak. There is no Chapter 30.

Barks From The Balcony Well, folks, hobe you cad read all this, we hab a God awful cold, we hab to hab just to keep in style. they will have to find something else to cry about. Understand that the Nautical Club did some extensive cruising this vacation. They went out to the Johanna Smith and couldn't get back. They didn't care to have personal contact with Buron Fitts, so they spent several days there until they got up courage enough to swim in. And here's an offer. To the first person who can find any sense in this column we will give a free pass to the above-mentioned ship. Well, we look for a large increase in the student body next semester. Many new faces have been seen in the office during t ie past few days, and from all indications there should be quite a few new students. Well, we can use them. And this shows how well known the college is. A sign at La Jolla points towards Los Angeles and says, "To Spindrift." Some of the late comers back to school will probably give the ex...
Most "Unusual" [Newspaper Article] — Corsair — 7 January 1931
Most "Unusual" The State of California has either been unfortunate or careless regarding its administration of financial organizations; organizations which absorb the people's money. Los Angeles County in particular seems to be receiving its share of unwelcome publicity and notoriety throughout the world. The Julian oil swindle case spread the fame of Los Angeles far and wide through the length and breadth of the land. Hollywood, not to be outdone by her sister city, produces a master criminal who calmly plays ducks and drakes with eight million dollars for about five years. Southern California may advertise its climate, and it may also get the people, but Southern California will have to acquire a few more wrinkles before it will be able to induce many easterners to invest their money here. However, there is the cheering thought that easterners may merely say it is all '"unusual," and thus allow us to forget our troubles. At this time of the year, naturally enough, the thought of t...

CORSAIRS OPEN CONFERENCE NEXT SATURDAY Hoop Squad Invades San Berdoo For Initial Conference Tilt; Indians Crave Revenge For Football Defeat To that city known as San Bernardino will the Santa Monica Junior College basketball team travel next Saturday to engage in a casabatossing melee with the participants of the San Berdoo Jaysee quintet.

Let us review the sports that are to take the spotlight during the initial part of 1931. First, basketball. Although hard hit by injuries and ineligibilities, the Corsair basketball team is preparing for the conference opener next Saturday with San Bernardino. With Coach Mishler at the helm and Wally Hickman as captain, the Corsair quintet can be relied upon to give any team in the conference a real battle. Not much has been said about track, but the cinder sport is one of the most popular on the local campus. The track team did not fare any too well last year, but that's all forgotten now, and the Corsair spikesters are looking forward to a succes...
