Do You Know That— [Newspaper Article] — Corsair — 14 January 1931
Do You Know That— If it wasn't for his horse, the Prince of Wales would be comparatively unknown as news copy in American newspapers. Dr. Bradford's psychology I class spent its entire hour, Monday, gazing into each other's eyes. The results were remarkable. The editor-t&gt;f his sheet had two calendar birthdays in 1929. Mr. Wallbank routed an uninvited second-story man during Christmas vacation. It is claimed that the caller was not Saint Nick. More issues of the Samojac have appeared this semester than the combined issues of the two preceding semesters.

Edwin R. Coulson's Evening Class Opens "A very promising turnout," was E. R. Coulson's description of the group that signed up for his evening school class in modern literature. When the preliminaries of registration had been taken care of, Mr. Coulson began the regular work of the course with a dissertation on Eugene O'Neil's shorter plays, particularly those of the "sea group."

Psychologists Perform Interesting Experiment [Newspaper Article] — Corsair — 14 January 1931
Psychologists Perform Interesting Experiment Interesting experiments in criminal psychology and other tests have been carried on for the past week by Dr. Bradford's psychology I class. Dr. Bradford demonstrated, by a word reaction test, how a criminal who refuses to admit his guilt may be forced to demonstrate that he is either the guilty party or was a party to the crime. This is done by requiring the suspect to write down the words that come to his mind when others are called out: for instance, if the word given is "table," the word that is most likely to suggest itself is "chair." The time for each reaction is taken with a stop watch. Words which have a definite bearing on the crime when presented cause a delayed response —the criminal is presented with the problem of giving himself directly or substituting another word. If he takes the latter recourse, his guilt is demonstrated by the delay. Other tests have chiefly been concerned with the reaction of the eve to color.
Cosmopolitan Club Hears Kirby Page [Newspaper Article] — Corsair — 14 January 1931
Cosmopolitan Club Hears Kirby Page The Cosmopolitan Club of the Santa Monica Junior College visited the First Congregational Church of Los Angeles last Wednesday evening after an invitation from the President of the Cosmopolitan Club at U. C. L. A. A speech was delivered by Mr. Kirby Page, editor of The World Tomorrow, on the subject, "Youth and the World Today." The thesis of Mr. Page's speech centered upon two dominant struggles in the world today, that between Nationalism and Imperialism, and that between Capitalism and Communism, represented respectively by Mr. Gandhi of India and Mr. Togao of Japan. Besides being very interesting and educational, the speech contained many features which were tangible to the purposes of the Cosmopolitan Club and was thus very appropriate for the evening. Harp selections by Miss Dorothy Hole were also featured.
Prospects Bright For A. S. B. Growth [Newspaper Article] — Corsair — 14 January 1931
Prospects Bright For A. S. B. Growth Prospects for a larger student body for this coming semester are bright, with the report coming from the administration office that a number of new students have already enrolled here and signed up for classes. The number who have registered at present is not known, although Dr. Bush signified with his thumb and forefinger that he had a stack of registration cards about an inch thick which have been filled out by new students for the coming semester. The football men of the Chaffey J. C. were not excused from their classes during their sea-voyage to the islands. From eight o'clock to twelve the boys gathered in a large room to study under the supervision of Mr. Hall, faculty adviser who accompanied the team. —Thrasher.
FIRST HOME CONFERENCE GAME TONIGHT, 8:30 [Newspaper Article] — Corsair — 14 January 1931
FIRST HOME CONFERENCE GAME TONIGHT, 8:30 Team Plays Host To Pomona In Second Conference Clash Tonight; Travel To Riverside Saturday For Third Game A fighting Corsair basketball quintet, intent to avenge itself of the Saturday's defeat by San Berdoo, will engage in the second conference game of the season when it meets Pomona J. C. at 8:30 tonight in the municipal auditorium. With blood in their eyes and fight in their hearts, the Corsairs are out to win. Coach Mishler's men are rapidly showing improvement after each workout,' and will be in the pink of condition for today's tiff with the Pomonans. Although not much is known of the visitors, it is presumed that tough and hardfought battle will be visible when the two teams lock horns tonight. The lineup used in the San Bernardino fracas was: Athey and Stevenson at forwards; O'Rourke at center, and Hickman and Zendell at guards. This quintet worked favorably, and it is very probable that, it will start against the Pomona five. However...
FINALS TEMPORARILY HALT TRACK PRACTICE [Newspaper Article] — Corsair — 14 January 1931
FINALS TEMPORARILY HALT TRACK PRACTICE Facing a temporary delay on account of final examinations, Santa Monica Junior College track men are marking time until exams are over. Coach Osterholt is optimistic concerning the chances of his cinder path artists, despite the lack of sufficient material to work with. Osterholt would like a larger squad than he had last year, as the competition to be met this year will be of the best. The team is handicapped for weight-men and a search is being made for someone to hold down the shot put and discus jobs on the S. M. J. C. track squad. Gil Rankin and Bill White, of Samohi fame, are expected to report soon, and with the addition of Captain Harry Wills, Larry Magee and Art Redden, the squad should begin to look something like a team. The first meet is scheduled for February 21, when the Corsair tracksters travel to Claremont to take part in a relay carnival.
TARGET PRACTICE [Newspaper Article] — Corsair — 14 January 1931
TARGET PRACTICE We haven't quite recovered from the shock of seeing our Corsairs go down to defeat at San Bernardino Saturday. Which goes to show how easy it is to become over-confident. We must admit we thought the Corsair hoopsters invincible, but that wild dream was rudely shattered Saturday. Over-confidence was plainly visible during the first half of the Berdoo game. What a jolt it was to see those pesky Indians sink shot after shot —some of which seemed positively uncanny. The Corsairs partially redeemed themselves during the final frame by outscoring and out-fighting the Berdoo quintet, but oh, the nightmare of that first half! We believe we express the sentiments of the squad when we say those scalping Indians from Berdoo had better watch their own scalps. The Corsairs are sharpening their battle axes for February 4, when San Bernardino invades Santa Monica for a return game—and what a game it should be, with the team just aching for revenge. But let us forget San Bernardino...
Lead In First Half Proves Downfall Of Corsair Team [Newspaper Article] — Corsair — 14 January 1931
Lead In First Half Proves Downfall Of Corsair Team With the score 24 to 8 against them at the half, the Santa Monica Junior College basketball team came back strong in the second period to score 17 points, meanwhile holding the San Bernardino five to 6 points. But the tremendous first-half lead of the Indians was too much to overcome, and the Corsairs went down to a glorious defeat, with only six points separating them from victory. The local team played listless basketball during the first half, teamwork being especially conspicuous by its absence. The Corsairs were plainly handicapped by the largeness of the Indians' court, and could not seem to get going. The Berdoo forwards swarmed all over the Corsair guards, sinking shot after shot. The invaders could not seem to solve the Indians' offense during the first half, but successfully bottled up the San Berdoo team during the final period. Team Overconfident Coach Floyd Mishler took out whatever overconfidence there miglft have been...

J. C. ENROLLMENT APPROACHES 400 [Newspaper Article] — Corsair — 28 January 1931
J. C. ENROLLMENT APPROACHES 400 Enormous Increase Presents Difficult Problems to Board As an indication of the tremendous growth of the Junior College there are, according to Dr. Bush, 377 students now registered for the present term. Of these 353 attended Monday classes. Twenty more are expected to enroll before registration closes. A great many applicants have been turned down because the classes they required had been closed. The attendance has increased more than 300 percent since the first term. Enormous increase of High School and Junior College enrollments has presented to the local board of education a difficult problem to meet.

Evelyn Miller is studying at San Jose State Teachers' College, Bill Walters at Stanford, Tyrus Moorhous at Citrus Junior College, and William Harper and Katherine Myers at U. C. L. A. These students are doing undergraduate...

FINAL GRADES The last word from the office indicates that the overly curious students who wish to know their final grades will soon be enlightened.
