Big Spindrift Campaign Will Continue Another Week; Is Announcement The extensive subscription campaign for the "Spindrift" will continue for one more week, according to Art Redden, and on the third of March the price will be advanced to three dollars. This date will be the absolute deadline for obtaining the yearbook at the prevailing price.

Alphas Win; Betas Shown How It's Done [Newspaper Article] — Corsair — 25 February 1931
Alphas Win; Betas Shown How It's Done Just after classes were dismissed last Thursday students and faculty gathered on the athletic field to witness the tug-of-war between the Betas and Alphas. On to the field, twenty strong, came the Alphas, well organized and rarin' to go. The Alphas dug in their toc-holds. Coach Osterholt refereed, laid down the rules, and gave the signal. Betas and Alphas tugged, strained and pulled. Their fellow-classmen cheered, the faculty and all others cheered. Tense and thrilling were the few minutes it lasted. At the start the Alphas took a slight lead. Both teams pulled with might and main. The Alphas gained, slowed, gathered strength, and gave that long strong pull that won. Now "dinks" no longer are in style, but "cords," ah, they are worn with assurance. The favored benches are free to Alphas.
HOLLISTER TO FETE CORSAIR CREW, FRIDAY [Newspaper Article] — Corsair — 25 February 1931
HOLLISTER TO FETE CORSAIR CREW, FRIDAY Thoughts of good things to eat are rushing madly through the brains of the members of the S. M. J. C. basketball squad these days, as they live in anticipation of the banquet to be given in their honor Friday evening, March 6. William Hollister, popular student of S. M. J. C., has graciously invited all members of the basketball squad to a dinner to be given at his home, where open house will be held and due honor paid to the team that brought a second place in Eastern Division standings to the Corsair institution.

WHO'S NEXT? i [Newspaper Article] — Corsair — 25 February 1931
WHO'S NEXT? i 1 This column has been placed at the exclusive disposal of Sir Christopher Sandstone, snooper extraordinary. Any complaints should be addressed to Chris in person, in care of the Samojac, Santa Monica Junior College, Santa Monica.—Editor. Well, if we must, we must, I suppose! So here goes for our pal Vincent Donatelli. It isn't that we don't like the boy—it's just his overwhelming self-satisfaction. He swims very well, in and out of deep water —leaving broken hearts and splashes of trouble. He was heard to express a fond desire to stay out of print—so here he is. May the gods bless him! Yep! him and his female fascinators. At any rate, we're feeling bored! People like Glynn Reineman, f'r instance. A woman entered his heart, and, in the manner of all women, broke it. Not that we ask anyone to take warning. Not this impersonal writer! We've even heard it said that Glynn must have been a beautiful baby, and he merely simpered, as all men do while influence of (Continued f...
HERBERT OPERA WILL OPEN WITH MATINEE MR. 27 [Newspaper Article] — Corsair — 25 February 1931
HERBERT OPERA WILL OPEN WITH MATINEE MR. 27 Junior College and High School Collaborate in Production Victor Herbert's opera, "The Fortune Teller," will open March twenty-fifth for a run of three performances, stated Mrs. Dorothy WhalleyWilliams late yesterday. In commenting on the choice of "The Fortune Teller," Mrs. Williams said, " It was chosen because of its difference in type from that of last year—because the music is something well known and of a caliber commensurate with the ability of the students." The annual producation of an opera is the only activity in 'which the Junior College and the High School collaborate, and from all reports it promises to be a master production. The sets have been designed in the high school stage design classes under the direction of Miss Mildred Hartzig. An effect has been attained that is usually only associated with "art theater" productions. In doing this, the class has considered the production first as a whole in which the scene is reduce...

An Unfortunate Indictment [Newspaper Article] — Corsair — 25 February 1931
An Unfortunate Indictment With a limited campus, a Utopian condition is hardly to be expected in any institution, even a college. This is all the more true in a campus that holds two institutions —one whose students must attend whether they will to do so or not, and the other whose attendance is voluntary and whose students are considered in the light of being adults. Many times it is difficult for those responsible for the one to justify the freedom allowed students in the other. Yet in the Santa Monica Junior College the administration has endeavored not only to maintain this freedom but to add to it. It is indeed an unfortunate situation, then, when the students do not appreciate and value this freedom enough to guard it or to defend the administration that has made it possible. Freedom of the library is the-latest concession, which includes the gift of the mezzanine floor as a study hall. No strings were attached to the gift, not even the absolute silence required in most librar...
Metamorphosis [Newspaper Article] — Corsair — 25 February 1931
Metamorphosis Imagine a senior in high school wearing a sophomore sweater or other emblem of prehistoric Bays; or imagine any college senior wearing a freshman letter or sweater. Yes, miagine it, for it is only in imagination that you can picture such a scene. When such is the case, it seems strange to see high school sweaters in the Junior College. Perhaps the wearers'may still have a deep sense of loyalty for their former high schools, but they must realize that they have entered another institution, and that it is their duty to give their enthusiastic co-operation and loyalty to the new alma mater. This does not mean, however, that respect for their former high schools should be diminished, but rather a suggestion that they prove themselves to be whole-hearted supporters of their present alma mater. —M. F.
Traditions [Newspaper Article] — Corsair — 25 February 1931
Traditions How many times have we heard the expression that traditions make a school. The case of our own Junior College, though, seems to be an exception, for the school is making its traditions. It is with some pride that we point to our recent class organizations, Hello Day, Freshman Day, and the fine spirit of friendly rivalry prevailing upon the campus. We must be careful not to fall back upon laurels already won but to go on working, boosting and building. It might be well for all to rememger what a help it will be to buy a "Spindrift." How about a little class competition on the matter? Alphas, Betas, Gammas, Deltas, let us show our faith in our school by backing whole-heartedly all of its activities. —M. L.
"RICHELIEU" NEW PASADENA DRAMA [Newspaper Article] — Corsair — 25 February 1931
"RICHELIEU" NEW PASADENA DRAMA With the extended engagement of "What Every Woman Knows," the Community Playhouse production of Bulwer-Lytton's famous historical play, "Richelieu," will be presented from March 5 to 14. The Playhouse v plans a very impressive production of tfiis notable drama. Forty persons are working on the costumes, which will be authentic, and a staff of twenty artists are busily engaged on the spectacular scenic sets for the play. The cast will number sixty players, and Gilmor Brown, director, feels that the production will be one of the most important costume plays to be presented at the Playhouse within the year. "Richelieu" is one of the foremost historical plays of all times, presenting a sequence from the life of the Cardinal whose name is one of the most outstanding in the history of modern Europe. The play abounds in classic lines, frequently quoted in every-day life. One of the lines, often attributed to Shakespeare, is ."the pen is mightier than the swor...
CAMPUS CHUCKLES [Newspaper Article] — Corsair — 25 February 1931
CAMPUS CHUCKLES He sent his precious poem to the editor. "Let me know at once whether you can use it," he wl-ote, "as I have other irons in the fire." In a few days the answer came back from the editor: "Remove irons, insert poem." Maggie: You think so much of your old golf game that you don't even remember when we were married. Jiggs: Of course I do, my dear; it was the day I sank thjt thirty-foot putt. Hill: So tomorrow is your wedding anniversary. What do you expect to get for your wife? Gill: I don't know. I haven't had any offers. Irritable Lady, in crowded car: Stop pushin, can't yer? Stout Man: I ain't pushin'; I only sighed. A keen angler took a friend for a day's sport. The friend knew nothing of fishing, but decided to try his luck. After a long silence by the banks of a stream the novice said, "I say, how much do those little red things cost?" "You mean the floats? Oh, they're cheap. Why?" " I owe you for one. Mine's just sunk
Barks From The Balcony [Newspaper Article] — Corsair — 25 February 1931
Barks From The Balcony By ART REDDEN * * * We wonder what Arlett has to say about intercollegiate sportsmanship after the recent Sta'nford-California basketball game in which Stanford was awarded ten free throws. Women seem to be doing a lot of record-breaking, lately. Witness the performance of the young lady, Sunday, who established a new record for outside loops in an airplane. And she is only 19 years of age at that. Youth will win out every time. Again someone is in dutch with the Italian government, and another apology can be demanded. Some government employee made what could be assumed to be a derogatory remark, and loyal Italians rush to the aid of Mussolini. The truth is, these remarks probably aren't very far from being right. See by the papers that Los Angeles' vaunted police force has established a new record in marksmanship. And on other pages are records of holdups, burglaries, attacks and other records of crime. Olympic gods, and even maybe the goddesses, must have tu...
Women Invited To Attend Modern Costume Lecture [Newspaper Article] — Corsair — 25 February 1931
Women Invited To Attend Modern Costume Lecture A lecture on modern costume design to be given by Miss Louise Pinkney Sooy, associate professor of fine arts at the University of California at Los Angeles, is scheduled for Thursday afternoon, February 26, at 12:10. Dean Robinson believes that the women of the Junior College are fortunate in having this opportunity to hear the lecture for which Miss* Sooy is most noted. Because of her great ability, Miss Sooy was borrowed by the University of Hawaii to reorganize its art department. The women of the Junior College have been cordially invited to attend by the Girls' League of the Santa Monica High School, under whose auspices the lecture is being given.
Notebook Choice Of Meanest Of Thieves [Newspaper Article] — Corsair — 25 February 1931
Notebook Choice Of Meanest Of Thieves With light-fingered individuals regularly visiting the Junior College locker section, a need for a reincarnation of Diogenes is felt. Fountain pens and books have recently been disappearing with surprising regularity, the most outstanding new development being the pilfering of a large gray notebook replete with lecture notes and book reports from "Vic" Thomas' briefcase. Thomas states that he does not mind the loss of the book as much as he does the loss of the experiment records and lecture notes, and has suggested that the needy person is welcome to the notebook if only he will return the notes and experiments, or at least copies, to the place from which the folder was taken.
A. S. B. PRESIDENT GIVES VIEWPOINT [Newspaper Article] — Corsair — 25 February 1931
A. S. B. PRESIDENT GIVES VIEWPOINT "Contrary to the misconception of many students, both new and old, the College tries to keep as far as possible from high school ideas and attitudes. We know that there are many students here, from various high schools, and we wish to impress them with the idea that when they were awarded their diplomas, they were no longer under the same rules and regulations as were imposed on them before. There are very few rules being enforced here. In fact, most of the rules now being obeyed were put into practice by the students themselves. Class rivalry should be evident in any institution such as this, and it is gratifying to find it being exemplified by the Alpha class. We hope they will continue to respect the college ideals which have been incorporated here in the past. The Student Body Commission wishes to be regarded not only as the legislative body for the student body, but also as a group always willing to serve the best interests of who elected them...
Students of University Of Mexico Are Penalized [Newspaper Article] — Corsair — 25 February 1931
Students of University Of Mexico Are Penalized Students of the National University, Mexico City, who go bareheaded, wear sideburns, or spats, or carry canes, hereafter will be subjected to special penalties decreed by a committee which has been appointed for the purpose. The ban against spats, sideburns and canes was declared on the ground that the students should devote their thoughts to more serious things, while the prohibition of bareheadedness was decided upon because the students considered going hatless an imitation of a habit prevalent in the United States.
