New J. C. Library Is Ideal for Study [Newspaper Article] — Corsair — 28 January 1931

New J. C. Library Is Ideal for Study Students who wish for the quiet and solitude that is necessary for successful study will find these conditions ideal in the official Junior College library and study hall. There will not be a teacher in charge, so that the students will handle the situation as they see fit. Whatever books have been ordered by Junior College instructors in the two years of the. school's existence are on the new library shelves. These books, arranged at each end of the hall include such subjects as economics, English, philosophy, psychology, geography, biology, botany, zoology, history, biography, and a few fiction books. Besides this mezzanine floor and its facilities, the Junior College students are offered full use of the high school library. Thus all the opportunities for study which Junior College and High School officials can offer are placed at the disposal of the earnest student.

Went worth Explains Portmanteau Words [Newspaper Article] — Corsair — 28 January 1931

Went worth Explains Portmanteau Words Harold Wentworth of the English department at Cornell University has turned the spotlight upon those freaks of language called "portmanteau" words. Words such as cafeteria and groceteria are examples of these coined hybrid words, formed by combining parts of two or more words. For example, a snoff is a combined sneeze and cough. Retardness is lateness caused by going toe? slowly. If Johnnyshould happen to be thrown off the merry-go-'round at the county fair, t,he would, of course, become a centrifugitive. Although the number of " portmanteau" words is not especially large, it is larger than the number of slang words that are permanently adopted.

Friendliness [Newspaper Article] — Corsair — 28 January 1931

Friendliness Now that almost one hundred new students have arrived at the Santa Monica Junior College, the old students have a very pleasant task before them —namely, to get acquainted with the new students and to make them feel at home. However, it must be admitted that the new students must do their part and perhaps one of the best ways to do this is to join some of our organizations. The excuse can hardly be made that there are no organizations to interest everybody, for here in Santa Monica Junior College we have clubs covering practically all fields of activity, and it is still possible to form new ones. Now it may be noted that friendliness is one of the main factors that go to make up school spirit and is something which the Santa Monica Junior College is well known for. Therefore, it is the further duty of each upperclassman to imagine himself, for the moment, as being a new student and thus to think of all the ways in which he would wish to be helped and directed, if he wer...

California in Limelight [Newspaper Article] — Corsair — 28 January 1931

California in Limelight As the result of communist uprisings here on the Pacific Coast, especially in the immediate vicinity of Los Angeles and San Francisco, a bill has been put before the California legislature which, it is stated, will prohibit any student professing communism from receiving a degree from any university or college in this state. While the literal interpretation of this bill prohibits students from receiving a graduate degree, the true purpose is to prevent alleged communists from attending state institutions beyond the high school grades. While a communist could garner a liberal arts education and thus still reap the benefits without a technical degree, he would never be able to enter a profession because of the absence of a degree. Just recently a city daily appeared with the story of a principal at a Los Angeles high school who refused diplomas to two students who were alleged to be engaged in communistic activities. It will be interesting to follow this bill a...

Barks From The Balcony By ART REDDEN Welcome to the balcony newcomers. If this column gets too rotten, let us know. Make yourself at home. If you put your feet on the desk there, do it here also; we'll do anything to make you happy. And don't forget to join the Nautical Club if you are interested in boats. The necessary qualifications are a forty-foot twin-screw cruiser and a couple of life belts. If you have the belts now, you don't need to worry about the boat. Don't forget to buy your Spindrift. It's going to be a honey, and we don't mean perhaps. There will be a picture of every person in the college in it, besides the history of last year. Imagine two years' book in one, and a real college yearbook. We were glad to hear that in the near future some new building may be forthcoming. Superintendent Martin's remarks about the child are more than true, only in this case the infant seems to have attained a huge growth beyond its years. Like the child that began smoking at five, only ...

Jaysee Y. W. Invites New Women To Join Women students who are interested in fun, eats and some worthwhile meetings! One of the most active and peppy organizations of women on the campus is the Y. W. C. A. This group was formed rather late in the first semester last year, but in spite of this it has developed into a beneficial and very interesting group. The Y. W. C. A. meets at the "Y" house, 1333 Ocean Avenue, every second and fourth Monday evening of the month. One of these meetings begins at 5:30 with a pot-luck dinner and a general meeting afterwards and the other begins at 7:00 p. m. with interest-groups. The cabinet has found that this plan works out very well. For those who may not know, each girl who comes to the pot-luck dinner brings either a hot dish, salad, fruit, cake, or sandwiches. If you don't believe we have a royal feast and a good time, come and try it yourself. In regard to the interest groups, each semester it is voted on just what groups we will have during the...

Other projects are: a tour through the Douglas airplane factory, a visit aboard one of the largef transpacific greyhounds.
