STUDENTS ATTEND CHOIR PROGRAM [Newspaper Article] — Corsair — 4 February 1931
STUDENTS ATTEND CHOIR PROGRAM The Smallman A Capella Choir, as the fourth attraction of the student entertainment concert series, proved both interesting and entertaining to many Junior College students who attended, yesterday, in spite of the rain. The performance, given at the Fox Criterion Theater under the auspices of the Santa Monica Bay Music Association, opened with a "Hymn to Raphael the Divine," by Bossi. This song, aside from its beauty and historical interest, was an excellent opening number, as it served to demonstrate the part-singing for which the Smallman choir is famous, and also led the audience into the mood of the concert. Other numbers on the program were: "Vere Languores," by, Thomas Ludoviscus Victoria; "Echo Song," by Orlando di Lasso; "Sing We and Chant It," by Thomas Morley; "The Silver Swan," by Orlando Gibbons; "The Pedlar," by H. Lane Wilson; "Wassail Song," arranged by R. Vaughn Williams; "The Island," by Rachmaninof; "V' Shomru," by Ancis; "Gospodi Pomi...

YOU MAY BE NEXT! [Newspaper Article] — Corsair — 4 February 1931
YOU MAY BE NEXT! By CHRISTOPHER SANDSTONE This column, "You May Be Next," is appearing for the first time in today's issue. The Samojac will run this column until such a time as people worthy of having their name mentioned in the paper have disappeared. Christopher Sandstone, the Samojac's star feature writer and snooper, will administer the medicine from now on. Well, the new student-body ossifers are ossifying, and the school jejoices accordingly. The big blond life-guard, Delp, familiarly known as " His Majesty, Royal," resigned in favor of Redden, Arthur Redden, the great lover —which reminds us of a brown-eyed damsel and our own " pressingdent" shyly holding hands on a rainy afternoon—but, no matter. Redden as always, is an executive. He engineers "anti" leagues for mustachios, speaks German, and crams for finals; 10, as all the rest. Anyhow, as thfe saying goes, he's a great guy and a grand President. Now we feel sad. When a red-headed yell leader stops yelling and becomes a q...

Something To Be Grateful For [Newspaper Article] — Corsair — 4 February 1931
Something To Be Grateful For This is the second year that the Santa Monica Junior College has been in existence, but who thought that we would have a library of our own by this time? However, since this has been actually brought about through the kind consideration of College officials and the Board of Education, we, as students of the Santa Monica Junior College, have something to be most grateful for; and in fact, indications are not wanting that we are very grateful, for the number of students using the new library in the balcony seems in some way or another to have greatly increased, as compared with the number formerly using the High School library. We are further grateful for the degree of freedom that has been granted to us in the use of this library, and we should make a special effort to prove that, as college students, we are entirely capable of making a proper use of this privilege. Still another means by which we may show our gratitude is to take advantage of the books o...
Athletics on the Decline [Newspaper Article] — Corsair — 4 February 1931
Athletics on the Decline From all appearances modern sports observers are correct in their statement that sports are on the decline. Numerous eastern colleges are eliminating baseball from their sports schedule because of lack of support; spectators have diminished in numbers almost to the vanishingpoint. Corsair basketball seems to be following the same course, although enrollment has more than doubled, the same few spectators appear at each game, that supported last year's matches. This cannot be assumed as being due to the brand of basketball played, as Citrus and other junior colleges will testify. If this lack of interest continues or increases, the administration would be justified in following the lead of the eastern colleges. It takes more than the interest of a few men on the teams to justify intercollegiate athletics. —J. R.
A New Civic Move [Newspaper Article] — Corsair — 4 February 1931
A New Civic Move The plan of the Santa Monica Bay Woman's Club to turn Santa Monica's empty lots into gardens of wild flowers is one of the most commendable civic plans that have recently been proposed. The city has recognized this in its offer to prepare the lots for planting. All that the citizens of Santa Monica have to do now in order to enjoy the beautiful bowers that California so loudly advertises to easterners, is to offer their lots for planting. How much better it will be to see these wild flowers than the usual burned and junk-covered lots that greet the eyes in the Bay District's dry summertime. —J. R. Those of you who haven't witnessed a basketball game should try one

CAMPUS CHUCKLES [Newspaper Article] — Corsair — 4 February 1931
CAMPUS CHUCKLES Redden: Why so sad, honeybunch? Yvonne: I just happened to think that this is the last evening we can be together until tomorrow. Charles: Have any of your family connections ever been traced? Al: Yes, they traced an uncle of mine as far as Canada once. "Does your wife select your clothes?" "No, she only picks the pockets." She: I'm not myself tonight. He: Then we ought to have a good time. "Put your feet where they belong!" "Don't tempt me, boy." Mother: Who taught you to use that dreadful word? Gross: Santa Claus. Mother: Santa Claus? - Gross: Yes, mother, when he fell over the chair in my bedroom, last Christmas. Mr. Stromer: What do you expect for Christmas? Mr. Coulson: My wife's relatives.

Barks From The Balcony [Newspaper Article] — Corsair — 4 February 1931
Barks From The Balcony By ART REDDEN Not that this column likes to enter into any International situations, but we do insist that if General Butler goes to trial the whole truth shall be made public. Criticism is necessary, of course, and only through constructive criticism can one make headway; but new persons matriculating in the college, or new professors, should not take it upon themselves to find too much wrong with past work. After they have been here for some time, then it is logical for them to speak their little piece. We surely notice a great deal of Improvement in the new library for J. C. students. We don't know what to attribute this to, but we do believe that, since a mutual understanding has been reached, the future should find the dove of peace hovering over the library. We understand that a bicycle club is to be started soon,, with Mr. Phipps and Mr. Stickle as the charter members. Now that it is popular for travel books to be on the market, we are looking for a sto...
Miniature Tennis Is Introduced At Santa Rosa Jaysee [Newspaper Article] — Corsair — 4 February 1931
Miniature Tennis Is Introduced At Santa Rosa Jaysee Deck tennis, a gam* that has been recently introduced to Santa Rosa Junior College, seems to be usurping the place of the old paddle variety, according to report. Deck tennis is played similarly to the regular lawn variety, with the exception that instead of racquets and balls, the game is played with the hands, using a small rubber ring. The ring is served and pitched back and forth, using either hand, but a point is scored against the player that touches it with both. The ring may not be pitched overhand. With its high net the court somewhat resembles a volleyball court except that it is marked as an ordinary tennis court. The scoring is the same as in tennis.
A WOMAN [Newspaper Article] — Corsair — 4 February 1931
A WOMAN She's an angel in truth, a demon in fiction; a woman's the greatest of all contradiction. She's afraid of a scorpion; screams at a mouse; but she'll tackle a husband as big as a hcuse. She'll take him for better, she'll take him for worse, she'll split his head open and then be his nurse; and when he is better, and can get out of bed, she'll pick up a teapot and throw at his head. She's truthful, deceitful, keensighted and blind; she's clever.
COLLEGE PHRASES HIGHLY AMUSING [Newspaper Article] — Corsair — 4 February 1931
COLLEGE PHRASES HIGHLY AMUSING Very interesting and amusing are the expressions used on the campuses of universities in various parts of the country. The (pllowing engage a sense of humor.
