CAMPUS CHUCKLES [Newspaper Article] — Corsair — 18 February 1931
CAMPUS CHUCKLES Redden: How do you like my new hat? Reynolds: Fine, but doesn't it fatigue your cartilaginous tissues? Redden: Doesn't it what? Reynolds: Don't your ears get tired? Gold Digger: Would you marry for money, Dearie? • Second Ditto: I don't know, but I have a sacred wish that Cupid might shoot me with a Pierce-Arrow. Some of the people attending S. M. J. C. from Venice this semester are: Herbert Wall, Bob Stewart, Ben Waller, George Clark, Catherine Schlosser, and Clare Jeffers. Midnight came and "Wow, wow, wow" and another "wow" came from the baby. "Four bawls and I walk" groaned the baseball player daddy as he slid out of bed. "Jerry is a regular old war horse." "What do you mean, always in a fight? "No; he charges everything." "I've always been religiously inclined," remarked the oyster as he slid down the minister's throat, "but I never dreamed I would enter the clergy." Hard Luck Harry says: I've got a check for 340, and the only man in town that can identify me is ...
Snapshot Week Provides Spice [Newspaper Article] — Corsair — 18 February 1931
Snapshot Week Provides Spice In order to put a little spice into' the yearbook, the Spindrift staff decided to hold an official snapshot week. If students but realize it, this is one opportunity they have of accomplishing several things; for instance, anyone desiring a little pictorial publicity has merely to invest in a roll of films and then turn in the results to the Spindrift. In fact this contest offers opportunity for revenge, humor, or practically any end the photographer wishes to achieve. Spontaneous snaps represent campus life more truly than any other one thing.

Barks From The Balcony [Newspaper Article] — Corsair — 18 February 1931
Barks From The Balcony By ART REDDEN This is "Spindrift Week," and the slogan means just what it says. This week will either put the yearbook across, or it won't and the staff will have to struggle along with the bugaboo always present of just where the finances are to come from. We see where Will Rogers is going to teach a certain aviator how to rope cattle. Well, we will trade him a worn-out sense of humor for a stick, of Beechnut Gum. (Advertisement). It is funny what a small world this is after all. Here are two judges at the debate with Long Beach who agree that college athletes should not have their expenses paid, and they are from an institution which gives football players accommodations worthy of an Indian potentate. Well, maybe they are just trying to rationalize. The only thing we didn't hear the Pope say over the radio was "Viva Mussolini." We do give him credit for using the old bean, though. He didn't come on the air at the same time that Rudy Vallee or Amos 'n' Andy a...
Dependability [Newspaper Article] — Corsair — 18 February 1931
Dependability It is one of the highest compliments that can be paid a person, to say that he is dependable. It is too easy for a person to agree to do something, such as promising an assignment, and then upon the least provocation, such as a good show, promptly forget the promise. Here in College we are building character for the future. Therefore it behooves each one of us to try consistently to be dependable in all that we do and say.—M. L. SPINDRIFT WEEK— All students are too prone to pull the easiest string. Everyone of us should practice on pulling the hardest string a little harder, until an equilibrium is obtained. In other words, a little more energy and time should be exerted upon a hard subject in order that an even development along intellectual lines may be obtained, rather than an aver-development along the easiest pathway.
Wilbur Advocates Change In Modern College Methods [Newspaper Article] — Corsair — 18 February 1931
Wilbur Advocates Change In Modern College Methods "Give the gifted man a chance!" This cry raised by Secretary of the Interior Wilbur, in a speech directed against modern educational methods. The universities, he says, lose the gifted man in the crowd. Present low standards and a process of information-dosing produce, he says, only intellectual "robots. To bring out the leaders who can save the world from sinking under a mass of uninterpreted and unharnessed informatidn, a more informal but a much harsher university is needed. The successful university would require nothing in particular of its students. But whatever they elected to do would have to be done well, with distinction and with real result. It would strongly challenge the able and would terrify the robots. Jt would keep the robots from being certified as scholars by the simple process of sitting around and amassing "units." —Philadelphia Enquirer. SPINDRIFT WEEK
WOMEN'S KNOWLEDGE IS CLASS DISCOVERY [Newspaper Article] — Corsair — 18 February 1931
WOMEN'S KNOWLEDGE IS CLASS DISCOVERY Nearly seventy-five students, accompanied by Professors Coulson and Kepner, attended the presentation at the Pasadena Community Playhouse, last Friday evening, of Sir James Barrie's famous play, "What Every Woman Knows." About 30 people arrived at 7:30 and were conducted through the building to inspect the dressing rooms, the curtain, lighting effects, and the workshop wherein all minor plays are presented and rehearsals held. The block of seats reserved for the Friday night performance of Sir James M. Barrie's play was quoted to the college at special rates, forty cents a seat. Frances Starr carried the leading role of "What Every Woman Knows." Frances Starr played for two years in " Marie-Odile," both in New York and on the road. A favorite play of Miss Starr's was "The Easiest Way," one in which she appeared for five years. Harrison Ford, a noted screen actor played the role of John Shand. —SPINDRIFT WEEK
CAMPUS NOTES [Newspaper Article] — Corsair — 18 February 1931
CAMPUS NOTES Members of the faculty had a regular conference after the game Wednesday evening. It looked more like an educational convention than a basketball game. Harry Wills, the new track captain, will not be able to participate in this year's opera, owing to the fact that all his spare time will be taken up with track affairs. With the stage enlarged to nearly twice its former size in order to handle the large choruses, concentrated work on the "Fortune Teller" is under way. Wally Hickman, who was spoken of in last week's issue of the Samojac as never having been seen with a woman, has not lived up to his reputation these last few davs.

Blanks which must be filled out in triplicate form may be secured from Dryden Bergeron, the commissioner of finance. All student organizations desiring money from the general A. S. B. funds must file a budget before the funds can be awarded.

New Books Arrive Students of geology, philosophy, psychology and chemistry will be overjoyed to learn that new books for those subjects are being ordered for use in the library very soon.

National Fraternity Chapter Is Installed At Sacramento J. C. [Newspaper Article] — Corsair — 18 February 1931
National Fraternity Chapter Is Installed At Sacramento J. C. The national fraternity, Phi Theta Kappa, has established a chapter in the Sacramento J. C., called the Alpha Pi, and will take the place of the present Honor Society existing there. Only ten percent of the total enrollment will be permitted to join the society. The requirements include: enrollment in the college; good moral character; a grade point ratio or an index number of at least 2. The purposes of the club are to promote scholarship, to develop character, and to cultivate fellowship. Phi Theta Kappa was originated in a women's junior college in Missouri, and was finally enlarged to include all women's junior colleges in the state. The next step was to admit all co-educational junior colleges in the state and a few outside the state. On November 19, 1929, it was made t,he national junior college honor society for the nation by the American Association of Junior Colleges. -SPINDRIFT WEEK "Curiosity is the Spice of Lif...
The Makeup Box [Newspaper Article] — Corsair — 18 February 1931
The Makeup Box By LARRY MAGEE i4 City Lights'* The action, the play and the cast are excellent.. Charlie is better than I have ever seen him before. He wears his characteristic clothes and uses his old gags, but thrown in are enough new ones to make you hold your sides during threefourths of the play. The other fourth you are holding back tears. Chaplin's scenes with Virginia Cherill, the blind flower girl, are very touching, and bring that old lump into the throat quite often. By the way, Miss Cherill is a newcomer to the screen, although from her acting you'd never guess it. It is my prediction that we will see much of this young lady in the near future. The two highlights of the play are the boxing match and the party scene. When Chaplin swallows that whistle at the party, look out, girls! That's a sign for the mascara to run. But, all in all, the play is a huge success, and the setting is also. That new Los Angeles theater is the most —. But go and see for yourself; you'll not b...

O'Rourke and Athey Scintilate In Corsair Triumph Over R. J. C. [Newspaper Article] — Corsair — 18 February 1931
O'Rourke and Athey Scintilate In Corsair Triumph Over R. J. C. The boys were hoopin' it up aplenty last Wednesday at the municipal auditorium, said boys being members of the S. M. J. C. basketball quintet, and the hoopin' was more than Riverside J. C. could stand. Ultimate result: Santa Monica triumphed over Riverside, 36 to 28, in a hard-fought and closely-contested game. In a scramble for the championship, the Tigers were eliminated like Buron Fitts in the primaries, when the Riversiders fell before the, sure-firing guns of the determined Corsairs,the eliminating being only temporary, however. Coach Mishler's men looked very hot against Mortensen's casabaieers. The extreme closeness of the contest was demonstrated by the 17-to-16 scord, favoring the Corsairs, at the half. However, Coach Mi?hler must certainly have been emphatic in his talk given the team in between halves, for in typhoon fashion did Captain Hickman's men go during the remainder of the fray. Certainly the fact that...
Crucial Game Won By Huge Chaffey Five; Athey Stars [Newspaper Article] — Corsair — 18 February 1931
Crucial Game Won By Huge Chaffey Five; Athey Stars In as hair-raising and thrilling a game as has been seen at the municipal auditorium for many moons, Santa Monica's Junior College basketball quintet was nosed out, 46 to 43, by "Muggs" Mitchell's Chaffey J. C. stalwarts, last Saturday. It was a slim, black-headed youth of the Chaffey five, Terry by name, who was the main reason why the Corsairs were beaten. This fellow, a dead-eye shot, caging field goals from almost every inconceivable spot on the floor, accounted for 21 of his team's 46 digits. The feature of the melee was the Corsairs' scoring punch, determination and the ability to come on despite the odds from behind, and almost win the game. With the count 36 to 23, at one time in the second half, the orange-and-gray troop came through in the final minutes of play like true thoroughbreds, and came within 3 digits of equaling the Tigers' score. Chaffey's men were certainly a very conspicuous group of elongated fellows, towerin...
TARGET PRACTICE [Newspaper Article] — Corsair — 18 February 1931
TARGET PRACTICE By Gus Vignolle DESCENDANTS OF GOLIATH For some reason or other my dander was aroused to a high pitch last Saturday, as I nervously sat on the edge of my seat in the flurries of excitement, while I was watching the Santa Monica J. C.-Chaffey "nose-out." It was all because of the huge size of the elongated Panthers, towering like giants over the Corsairs. Although everything was strictly according to Hoyle, and Mitchell's men deserve all the credit in the world for winning, it didn't seem just right the way the Chaffey casabateers nonchalantly maneuvered themselves up and down the court. But, ah, did Captain Hickman's men fight them back every inch like five enraged bulls? HIGHLIGHTS GALORE Hard-to-forget reactions of the S. M. J. C.-Riverside J. C. affair: The way the Corsairs so magnificently showed up, playing a J superb game and outfighting the Tigers. . . The eagerness of both quintets to win. . . Kent's scoring of three points a moment ; before * the half termin...
CHANCE TO TIE FOR PENNANT STILL PROMISING [Newspaper Article] — Corsair — 18 February 1931
CHANCE TO TIE FOR PENNANT STILL PROMISING By Fred Salter Coach Floyd Mishler will take his band of hopeful casaba-tossers to Citrus this Saturday to engage the Owls in the final conference encounter of the basketball season. Although slightly crestfallen by their defeat of last week, the Corsairs are by no means discouraged. The S. M. J. C. five stands a fair chance of annexing the final game, and there is a probability that the Corsairs may snag at least a tie for conference honors if. . . "It all depends on you" is the theme song the Corsair basketeers are singing these days. By "you" of course is meant Riverside, and here's the dope: If Riverside beats Chaffey, and Santa Monica defeats Citrus, Saturday, the Eastern Division will resemble the League of Nations on a busy day, inasmuch as three teams will be deadlocked for the top spot. Santa Monica, Riverside and Chaffey will be tied for first place in division standings with three lost and seven won. This will, of course, necessit...
