LARGE ENROLLMENT IS FORECAST [Newspaper Article] — Corsair — 14 January 1931
LARGE ENROLLMENT IS FORECAST Three New Members To Join J. C. Faculty Accommodations Are Already Closed in Many Classes Dr. Ralph H. Bush in a recent statement indicated that the prospects for a large increase in enrollment is anticipated for the semester commencing January 27. Three new members will be added tp the faculty, and eight new courses will be offered. It was pointed out that this increase is in direct ratio to those noted at previous milestones.

September, 1930, when the college opened to begin its second year, witnessed a growth of two hundred percent over that of the previous opening.

Contributions Bring Immediate Response [Newspaper Article] — Corsair — 14 January 1931
Contributions Bring Immediate Response According to Frau Einstein, the professor has received so many requests for autographs and autographed photographs that he has been forced to refuse all. However, she stated, the professor is extremely interested in the alleviation of poverty in Berlin, and that, if checks for the poor were with the requests for autographs, the professor would be glad to comply. Frau Einstein thought that a three-dollar check for an autograph, or five dollars for a photograph, would not be too much. She stated that Dr. Einstein made a practice of sending all that he could afford to alleviate the conditions of these unfortunate people.

DELP CONDUCTS LAST ASSEMBLY [Newspaper Article] — Corsair — 14 January 1931
DELP CONDUCTS LAST ASSEMBLY Tuesday, on the eve of his departure from the presidency, Royal Delp conducted the last assembly to be held by the present administration. Delp represented the unique position of a popular president eligible for re-election and not seeking office. The custom of serving only one term seems to have become traditional in this college. Delp's administration witnessed rapid strides in -the growth and development of the college scholastically, socially and athletically. His term has j seen a segregation of the student body into class organization, the unique four-section principle being used. The first of these to be organized was the Alpha class. This division saw the advent of inter-class rivalry, which became evident for the first time when the Alpha class challenged the upper classmen to a tug-of-war. This administration saw the development of the first football team of the college on which Delp played in the position of fullback. Of special interest was th...

Library Grievances Are Aired [Newspaper Article] — Corsair — 14 January 1931
Library Grievances Are Aired Long, now, has the grievance of the librarian been voiced, and still it rings through the corridors, spreading a new note quite common among the students who are most vitally affected by laws of the library department. As the result of several books being taken unchecked from the library, that department immediately cried out in indignation at the irresponsibility of students. True enough it is that all fair laws of the library, or for that matter any institution, should be implicitly observed. But a question has arisen as to. the righteousness of certain rules. In the first place, certain books cannot be checked out before 2:30. And these very same books must be returned before 8 o'clock the following morning. Then there is the consideration of fines to be woven into the matter. Quite strong they are; some books carry a fine of ten cents a period, and all others figure at seven cents a day for overdue charge. Programs are varied among the student body; ...
A Remedy For Lawlessness [Newspaper Article] — Corsair — 14 January 1931
A Remedy For Lawlessness A great deal of discussion is being carried on today regarding our present state of lawlessness and widespread corruption. Many are the opinions held regarding the remedy for the situation, but if one wishes to deal with fundamentals he must recognize that the remedy lies in educating the people along the lines of love and respect for the laws of the land. Therefore, an all-around character building and moral training should be made part and pared of our present educational system. This character building and moral training, however, need not be carried on according to any specific plan or procedure, but may be left to the discretion of the educational authorities. Signs are not wanting that the nation is awakening to the demand and schools throughout the country are probably more alive to the problem of character education than they have been at any time in the past. As an example of what may be done in this connection, we may take our own State of Californ...

Students To Study New Type of Liner Early next semester the members of the Engineers' Club will inspect one of the larger trans-Pacific liners, at San Pedro. The students will be shown the modern methods of ship design, construction and propulsion.

The students will be shown many parte of the ship that visitors ordinarily are not allowed to see. The club will not have another meeting until after the exams have been taken, and the new semester's work is started.
LINES TO A SLAIN CANINE [Newspaper Article] — Corsair — 14 January 1931
LINES TO A SLAIN CANINE Only a dog, a brute canine, Waving his flag in friendship's sign; Brownish hair with a tint of red, Shep, he was called by Joan and Ned; Made by Nature, debased, yet fine, Wad of clay with a spark divine. Hostile to cats, the tribe feline, Herder of sheep and guard of kine, Yet when they shot him someone saidOnly a dog! Should a man for his tyke repine? Miss its bark and its yearning whine?

CAMPUS CHUCKLES Another Momentous Question She: According to the latest fashion notes, skirts are going to be worn below the knees. He: I don't doubt it, but how are they going to keep them on? A canvasser for a magazine walked to the door of a prospect's house and knocked. A colored maid answered. Canvasser: Is the lady of the house in? Maid: She's takin' a bath, suh! Canvasser: I'd like to see her. Maid (grinning): I 'spec' you would sir. Judge: But if you were doing nothing wrong, why did you run when the officer approached you? Redden: I thought that he wanted to sell me a ticket for the policemen's annual ball. "I admit that women are more vain of their personal appearance than men," confessed the lady lecturer. "Why, at this moment the handsomest man in my audience has his necktie knot pulled around under his collar." Whereupon 47 masculine hands furtively reached up and adjusted neck-ties. "My chicken laid an egg!" boasted Willie, who had a bantam hen for a pet. "Huh! that's ...
Barks From The Balcony [Newspaper Article] — Corsair — 14 January 1931
Barks From The Balcony By ART REDDEN Well, with anothw round of debates coming off we are looking for Mr. Wallbank's invitation for all persons interested to come up to the house and have dinner. If he does give a bid like that, we know it is because he just wants a crowd around in case his recent nocturnal visitor takes a notion to (ome back. And now that we see there are a few openings at Sacramento for some wideawake young men, we are hoping "Sunny Jim" will look over the available men here at J. C. and place some of them in these positions. For instance we would be willing to let him have a few of the boys to fill such positions as turnkey at San Quentin or Folsom, chicken inspector in Hollywood, parking inspector at Santa Monica Canyon, and blonde, brunette and red-head supervisor for the beaches. Well, with the Increase In the student body next semester, we look for a sale of the windshield stickers. With all the J. C. cars running around minus stickers, we hope someone will g...

Sales Campaign Is Stressed by Editor [Newspaper Article] — Corsair — 14 January 1931
Sales Campaign Is Stressed by Editor In a talk to the members of the year book staff, Thursday, January 8, Art Redden stressed the necessity of success in the sales campaign. The Spindrift depends on this drive for its birth. It is a child resulting from the marriage of money to the knowledge and skill of the staff, both of which are fundamentally necessary. Charles Moore, head of the photograph department, has made appointments for students whose pictures will appear in the Spindrift. Senior pictures have not been assigned because it is unknown who will graduate. As soon as the new term begins, work will commence in earnest for the editors. The various departments have been writing material, but have not as yet turned it in for editing.
Greenlaw Returns After Severe Illness [Newspaper Article] — Corsair — 14 January 1931
Greenlaw Returns After Severe Illness Ted Greenlaw returned to school Tuesday. Considering his recent illness he seems to be in excellent shape.

The rapid recovery of Greenlaw has been remarkable, to say the least. His excellent physical condition prior to illness has no doubt played a great part in making such rapid recovery possible. According to Ted, appendicitis is not the gentlest of all illnesses, and he is indeed glad to be back again.
