A Penny For Your Thoughts [Newspaper Article] — Corsair — 12 November 1929
A Penny For Your Thoughts It is said that we live in a scientific age. All over the world learned men and women are engaged in laborious analyses, dissections and subsequent syntheses. In fact, even the very common things of live are •being placed on a scientific basis. For instance, today it is not out of the ordinary to speak of the science of cooking, the science of sports, or even the science of millinery. Now, in spite of all this scientific talk, nothing has yet been said of the science of thinking. We look upon thinking with an attitude of comparative indifference, not knowing whence our thoughts come nor whither they go; and yet there must, out of pure necessity, be a science of thinking. The fact that our thinking is perpetual mental action necessitates careful analysis and dissection of our thoughts —"discarding the dross and retailing the gold" of every form of human knowledge.-—M. F.
Corsairs Supreme [Newspaper Article] — Corsair — 12 November 1929
Corsairs Supreme "Corsairs" was the name given by the Mediterranean peoples to the privateers of the Barbary Coast, the northern shore of Africa, These marauders were sent out by the princes of their states to prey upon merchant ships. During the sixteenth and seventeenth centuries the Corsairs were the scourge of the Mediterranean. Until Simon Danser, a Flemish regenade, taught them the use of sails, these pirates used oars to propel their galleys. Great nations paid them ransom for the use of the Mediterranean, and no one thought of invading their strongholds. Now, although we of S. M. J. C. are not as primitive as our ancestors, we intend to be the scourge of the Junior College Conference. We can gain recognition and supremacy in the Conference by hard work and determination, so let's go, "Corsairs," and live up to the name. —F. W.

BOOK REVIEW [Newspaper Article] — Corsair — 12 November 1929
BOOK REVIEW "Journey's End," by R. C. Sherriff, is a war tragedy of such intense interest that, having once set about the task of reading, all else seems beside the point. The entire play is staged ih a dug-out somewhere in France, within an easy grenade throw of the German front lines. The characters are well established —incarnated by lines of such natural reality that the reader feels these people actually live. Only once does the.action digress from a direct objective, dropping into a strained salacious soldier jargon. A relief it seems, but no! Undercurrents of tension build up the scene powerfully until a fearful climax is reached. Stanhope is the main character, imbued with youth, temper, and executive ability. His attempts to drown the strain and horror of war by drinking form an interesting side issue, involving the hero worship of a youth who has known Stanhope in earlier days. He is a brilliant character with brilliant dialogue well suited to the atmosphere of Very lights...

STAGE-SCREEN "She Couldn't Say No." Charlotte Greenwood in a hilarious comedy so well done the audience goes home with a "good taste in their mouths." "Disraeli.

Stand on Your Own Feet [Newspaper Article] — Corsair — 12 November 1929
Stand on Your Own Feet Perhaps the best thing a student learns in college is to stand on his own feet. All the diversions which friends offer should not deter him from following the course he has planned. More than the little pleasures of every-day life, one should enter into the better things of real culture, from which he is able to enjoy the'bigger things. Nowadays the "regular fella," who is nothing but an individual having a good time, belongs to that category which only few remember. It is the real gentleman —and that means a lot —who is the outstanding person of the day. He has ambitions and works to realize them. Are you in a-class with him? —E. M.
The Value of a Smile [Newspaper Article] — Corsair — 12 November 1929
The Value of a Smile Have you ever thought about the value of a smile? Did you ever realize that those who receive smiles are enriched, while the giver is by no means made poorer? A smile takes but a moment and no effort, yet the memory of it may last for years. A smile creates happiness in the home, office, and classroom. It fosters good will and friendship. A smile can neither be bought, sold, exchanged, borrowed, or stolen. "Laugh and the world laughs with you" runs the old.adage, so why not try smiling yo.ur way through school? —A. R.

Dr. Ralph Bush To Teach Summer Class An announcement of unusual interest to Santa Monica Junior College students was made last week, when Dr. Bush released the news that he had been invited and had accepted an invitation to teach two courses at the University of California Summer School. This is a signal honor and a compliment to Dr. Bush. The University at Berkeley has the reputation of selecting only the men foremost in their lines. To receive an invitation to teach is therefore a distinct honor in itself. The courses Dr. Bush has been selected to teach are "Secondary Education" and "The Junior College." Not only does this compliment Dr. Bush, but it is also a compliment to S. M. J. C. to have as head of the college one so capable in this field.

The scene of the upset was somewhere-on Fourth Street, between Broadway and the school. While thousands of spectators cheered, Art Redden and a motor cop (name by request) held tneir wordy battle. It all started when Art felt the need of demonstrating to Coach Wallbanlo the power of his, Art's, lungs. The coach was crossing the street and Redden was riding in Ted Gross's car. Herr Redden let out one of his artificial sirens, causing Mr. Wallbank to assume the ungentlemanly attitude of a man trying to catch a street car. About two seconds after this another siren pierced the air, but Gross, thinking that Art was still grinding them out, calmly proceeded. Then the spectators were thrilled to see Gross force...
