Study, Not Chatter [Newspaper Article] — Corsair — 11 February 1931
Study, Not Chatter Now that we have come into possession of a separate Junior College section in the library, one which is separated by its position, from the High School, we should at the very least endeavor to show our appreciation of the fact by conducting ourselves in the proper manner. Because of our status as collegians, the head librarian, Miss Tuck, has thought it unnecessary to have, an instructor present to see that the studnets .who use the library conduct themselves jn an orderly manner. It is, therefore, up to us to act in accordance with our position and the confidence placed in us. We do not care to have an instructor-observer in the library; let us not make it necessary. The entire turmoil seems daily to occur around a group of five or six women who find it necessary to adjourn to the library for a daily conference on various social matters. At least they seem to be the center of all motion. Should they find it beyond their liking to discuss their little "affairs" on...

C. may become acquainted with the old was presented 'at the Frosh Reception Friday, January 30. There were only two restrictions —one tha...
CAMPUS CHUCKLES [Newspaper Article] — Corsair — 11 February 1931
CAMPUS CHUCKLES Nursery Rhyme She was standing near the rail, She was looking deathly pale; Was she looking for a whalef Not at all. She's her mama's lonely daughter Casting bread upon the water In a way she hadn't oughter —- That's all. —Campus Times. The Muzzle A man took his wife to a doctor, who put a thermometer into her mouth and told her to keep her mouth shut for two or three minutes. When departing, the man tapped the doctor on the shoulder and said, "Doctor, what will you take for that thing?" Best man: Wasn't it annoying the way that baby cried all during the ceremony? Maid of Honor: It was dreadful! When 1 am married I shall have engraved on all the invitations, "No babies expected." "And there, my son Rex jur., you have the story of your dad and the Big War." "Yes, dad, but why do they need all of the other soldiers?" Shipwrecked Prof: In my country I am considered a man of letters." Cannibal King: Good! We'll make you into alphabet soup!
Barks From The Balcony [Newspaper Article] — Corsair — 11 February 1931
Barks From The Balcony Bv ART REDDEN We notice a rival now in this column-writing business. Whoever this Chris Sandstone is, we will give him credit for some remarkable snooping. It is understood that he is under-cover reporter for the Samojac. Undercover is right; he is afraid to come out from under the covers. And Buron Fitts has someone arrested for taking a photograph of his home. Well, we don't blame him much. With the way photographers have of touching up pictures and supplying faces where they weren't before, it is highly probable that some dirty work may have been afoot. Who knows, when it was printed in the paper it mights have shown Clara Bow waving from the window. Still the argument goes on. The Betas say that the Alphas will wear dfnkles, will not wear cords, will keep off the benches, and will comply with all reasonable requests made by upperclassmen. Well, when we see them doing these things we will believe it. The explosion last week on Broadway can be easily traced....
Modern Youth is Not Modern [Newspaper Article] — Corsair — 11 February 1931
Modern Youth is Not Modern Youth may find some comfort in the fact that according to thousands of ancient papyri which were dug out of the sands at Oxyrheneus, the elders of New Testament days were astounded and dismayed at the rampages of their younger generation. Those papyri which have thus far been translated reveal the curious modernity of the people who lived in New Testament times. Written in the form of letters, they constantly mention the children of the correspondents rather derogatorily, and also contain many reproaches because of the failure of their friends to write oftener. High taxes, graft and burglary were familiar topics then as now, and the elder generation was convinced that the young people were going to the dogs. Youth has at last a comeback. At least it is comforting to know that we have in writing proof that 1900 years ago youth was then the topic of much discussion; perhaps it will also help our ego to know that youth during the time of the New Testament was...
The Spindrift Now Rapidly Progressing According to Editor [Newspaper Article] — Corsair — 11 February 1931
The Spindrift Now Rapidly Progressing According to Editor New Students Urged To Subscribe In Yearbook Campaign With quite a bit of engraving now in the hands of the publisher, work on the Spindrift is rapidly progressing, and plans for a successful publication are being furthered daily. Faculty and group pictures will probably be finished the first of next week, and mounting of them will start immediately. To date, division pages and sub-division pages for the athletic section comprise all the art work completed, but many innovations have been promised by that department in the way of striking and startling divergences from the usual junior college yearbook. The view section will in itself be a beautiful piece of artistic accomplishment. Several pages of hitherto unpublished panoramas of the Bay section are promised, and this work will present a section comparable to any college publication. The size of the book will of course be the large college size annual. The cover, of a sea gr...
Snapshot Week [Newspaper Article] — Corsair — 11 February 1931
Snapshot Week A week of extensive photographing is promised the college beginning next Monday, when "Snapshot Week" is inaugurated. Students are asked to get school views, and as nearly as possible to confine them to the college itself. All that the yearbook wants are the negatives, and these will be returned as soon as the prints are made. It is necessary that the students co-operate quite a bit on this work, so that the student life section may be indicative of much ac-tiv ity. This section will occupy about eight or ten pages in the book, and will be presented in an entirely new manner. The subscription campaign, which has lagged considerably in the past two weeks, will be renewed extensively by the business st?ff. New students in particular are urged to subscribe as soon as possible, for the price of the book will probably be raised after the twenty-fifth of February. The down payment of one dollar wilt remain the same, but the final payment will be raised to make the total pric...

Bare Knees and Byron Collars For Men, New Dictate Lord Byron collars and bare knees will be the fashion for men in London if the men's dress reform party has better luck this year in its annual campaign against Britain's male fashion dictators, which opened Monday.

Dr. Alfred C. Jordan, founder and secretary of the party, believes that men's clothes are not only uncomfortable and unclean, but also unsightly. The party is said to have some three thousand members in ten countries. Its slogan is, according to Jordan: "Fewer clothes, lighter clothes, cleaner clothes, brighter clothes.

CORSAIRS MEET RIVERSIDE TONITE [Newspaper Article] — Corsair — 11 February 1931
CORSAIRS MEET RIVERSIDE TONITE MISHLERITES SCRAP WITH RIVERSIDE FIVE TONITE Corsairs versus Tigers. Those will be the two parties engaged tonight at the municipal auditorium, when Coach Floyd Mishler's quintet takes on the rapidlyimproving Riverside J. C. basketballers at 8:00 p. m. In their last encounter recently, the Mishlerites subdued the Riversiders, 38 to 30, in a close and hard-fought melee. Holding a one-point lead, 17 to 16, at the half, the Corsairs came back like a typhoon in the second half, to ring up 21 points and win the gkme. The Tigers, however, have improved considerably since then, and have knocked off the strong Chaffey team, and are now in a triple tie with the Chaffey Panthers and the Corsairs for the lead in the percentage column. Recently Coach Mortensen's men trounced Ponjona, 40 to 23, and the Citrus Owls were humbled, 23 to 15. Coach Mishler's men have been coming along like a house afire, too, and the game tonight should by all means turn out to be one o...
