Cosmo Club Elects Officers For Term [Newspaper Article] — Corsair — 4 February 1931
Cosmo Club Elects Officers For Term Tonight, during its first meeting of the new term, the Cosmopolitan Club will elect officers for the spring semester. The new president will immediately take the chair vacated by Eric Moore, retiring leader. During the three semesters of its existence, this club has perhaps been the most active in the junior college. Meetings of different types —German, Scotch, American Indian, English, American, Russian — have proved a friendly means of uniting in mutual good fellowship the customs and thought of nations so far apart geographically. All students interested in the Cosmopolitan Club are invited to attend the meeting in the teachers' cafeteria tonight at 7:30. Foreign born, as well as a limited percentage of American representation, are eligible for membership.
Sacramento Council Inaugurates New Idea [Newspaper Article] — Corsair — 4 February 1931
Sacramento Council Inaugurates New Idea A new idea inaugurated by the council of the Sacramento Junior College, in the form of student books instead of cards, has just been provided for. This will enable them to enforce the non-transferability rule. These books are somewhat smaller in size than the cards and contain about twenty-four pages of coupons, which are to replace the cards. Each coupon will be printed on and will state the particular event for which it is to be used There will be one for the annual and one for the school paper, as well as those for the sport events of the season. White books will be issued to the- men, and the women will receive blue ones, so that a check may be easily made on the users of the books, to see that it is his own and not someone else's. The only way that a new book may be obtained is to buy a new one if your original one is seized.
MISHLERITES DEFEAT CITRUS [Newspaper Article] — Corsair — 4 February 1931
MISHLERITES DEFEAT CITRUS Corsairs Annihilate Citrus Jay see Melon Tossers In Final Tilt Of First Round; Loom As Contenders Showing up in a way that may keep them quite in the running for Eastern division championship honors, Coach Floyd Mishler's scrappy Corsair casabateers annihilated the Citrus Owls, 49 to 24, in the final contest of the first round of competition. The game was held Saturday at the municipal auditorium. The Mishlerites, displaying brilliant form, made baskets with the regularity of a pendulum throughout the entire game. Should such ability in tossing the sphere through the hoop prevail in future tilts, only an efficient prophet can foretell just who is going to win the gonfalon. Played Best Game Although the Owls tried hard at all times, at no time could they cope with the orange-and-gray quintet, which was hitting on all five. Captain Wally Hickman's men followed up their shots in a nice fashion, and their passing seemed to be better than usual. All in all, the ...
TARGET PRACTICE [Newspaper Article] — Corsair — 4 February 1931
TARGET PRACTICE By FRED SALTER HAIL TO THE SUBS Now Is as good a time as ever to give the subs a hand. We read reams about the first string —in fact the whole sport page paints an enthralling story of the stirring deeds of the first string. It is the first team that gets the recognition; the first team that receives letters at the end of the season. But all the while the lowly subs are in there, plugging away and giving all they've got, for the good of the team and the school. Substitutes, we salute you! IN A WINNING MOOD With the Santa Monica Jaysee casaba tossers in a winning mood, after humbling Citrus last week, Coach Mishler's men have an excellent chance of knocking over the San Bernardino Indians tonight, when the two quintets h?&gt;ok up at the municipal auditorium. The team needs your support for a win, and it's up to you to go to the game and cheer and root for the Corsairs. ATHLETES WANTED Several sports here at S. M. J. C. are now going on as far as practice is c...
San Berdoo Plays S.M.J.C. In Tonite's Conference Game [Newspaper Article] — Corsair — 4 February 1931
San Berdoo Plays S.M.J.C. In Tonite's Conference Game The conference-leading San Bernardino Junior College Indians travel from San Berdoo to meet the Santa Monica J. C. basketball quintet tonight at the municipal auditorium. The melee is set for 8:00 p. m. This contest will be the first one of the second round of competition, and it will be remembered that in the first conference tussle of the season the Indians took the Corsairs into camp by quite a fancy score. They earnestly figure to repeat, for it will just mean another step nearer the title. Chance for Title Coach Floyd Mishler's casabateers, however, still have a good chance at the conference gonfalon, and before much more is done Captain Wally Hickman's men hope to avenge themselves of the former defeat met at the hands of the scalping Indians. If the Corsairs display the form they showed against Citrus last week, it may indeed be very possible that the San Berdoo tribe will find the steps to the top of the ladder blocked so...

Men Outnumber Women [Newspaper Article] — Corsair — 4 February 1931
Men Outnumber Women Coach Floyd Mishler stated that some of his gym classes number 60 men, which is a considerable growth over last year. The number of men enrolled in gym classes is over the two hundred mark, according to the figures submitted by Mr. Mishler. This large enrollment of men in the gymnasium classes gives an idea of the proportion of men and women students attending, men students outnumbering considerably the women students enrolled. The Misses Carroll, Burpee and Lenz are directing dances for "The Fortune Teller."
Corsairs Travel To Pomona For Return Tiff With Cossack* [Newspaper Article] — Corsair — 4 February 1931
Corsairs Travel To Pomona For Return Tiff With Cossack* Coach Floyd Mishlcr and his band of up-and-coming Corsairs will trek to Pomona Saturday for a conference game with the Pomona Junior College basketball team. Although Santa Monica won over the Pomonans in the first encounter several weeks ago, a hard game is expected by the local team. Pomona was handicapped during the earlier part of the season, by the injuries of two first-stringers, but it is reported that these men are back again, and this will greatly strengthen the team. Coach Mishler's men are all in good shape, and the following lineup will probably take the floor Saturday night at 8:00 p. m.: Stevenson and Kent, forwards; O'Rourke, center; Captain Hickman and Athey, guards.

SEASON ENDS FEBRUARY 21 [Newspaper Article] — Corsair — 11 February 1931
SEASON ENDS FEBRUARY 21 Basketball Review Discloses Enviable Record for Corsairs While Coach Floyd Mishler was busily engaged in handling his football men during the month of December, a diligent and hard-working band of basketball players were working out regularly under Coach John Dulin. Although four of the five returning basketball lettermen were playing football, Vic Thomas, the fifth man, was participating in the hoop sport. The other four monogram wearers were: Duane Stevenson, forward; Pop O'Rourke, center, and Captain Wajly Hickman and Bill Athey, guards. Pre-season notices were to the effect that Santa Monica Junior College's quintet would be a good one. Before the lettermen who had been playing football came out for the hoop sport, the casaba-slingers met Long Beach J. a practice game, and lost, 21 to 8. Kent, Thomas and Pride were used as forwart'g; Guida and Martin at the pivot position, and Zendell and J. Moore as guards. Thomas was high-point man with S digits to his ...
WHO'S NEXT? [Newspaper Article] — Corsair — 11 February 1931
WHO'S NEXT? Pip, pip, little playmates. And, as the vermilion dragon flew over the hill, we remember our bashful blond hero, "Walrus" Hickman. Although he chatters Spanish like a native Fiji Islander, he's captain of our illustrious basketball squad. A perfect example of manly beauty, he has not been seen with a woman. But where there's life, there's trouble, and he plays elegant basketball. Since we're on the subject of great, blond men, we do our duty With the track captain. You'll know Harry by his dashing ways with women. The true lady-killer, whose antics bespeak of vast experience, or who fondly hopes Qther people see them in that light. Which was a nas'ty crack, and makes us feel like an apology. We don't look like one, but in such manner we leave- Mr. Wills still no relation to the boxer. Having sprinted away from a dangerous topic, we land flat-footed on "Pop" O'Rourke. He seems surprised! He is surprised! In sharp contrast to Wills, we only draw attention to the one confir...
