Ode To Milton [Newspaper Article] — Corsair — 25 February 1931
Ode To Milton A great many words which say nothing at all, A trouble to students in spring and in fall, Irregular rhythm, the metrics are off, We get very bored and we soon start to cough. At last we yawn and then we sleep. We dream, and other visions keep, Lycidas may float upon his bier, We just wish we weren't here. —Z. G.

The Makeup Box [Newspaper Article] — Corsair — 25 February 1931
The Makeup Box By LARRY MAGEE "THE BUTTER AND EGG MAN" Regardless of all the ti« music, and the flat screen, and the millions of dollars that are "supposed" to be spent on the great motion pictures of the present day, there is something about a real play that makes the screen take a back seat. There is some intangible thing that seems to come from the actors on the stage, across the footlights, and into your seat with you. It is something that is in your blood, something you really love. Something that makes us all want to get into that mysteriour "back-stage" world, whether we admit it or not. That is the reason we have plays today, and that will be the reason our grandchildren will be having plays in their day, when we are but a sigh of relief. And that is also the reason George S. Kaufman wrote such a play as "The Butter and Egg Man," and put such a character as Peter Jones in it. Peter Jones is an angel of the stage, not from heaven, but from Chillicothe, O. A hick with a love f...

ORANGE AND GRAY IS RUNNER-UP CORSAIRS DISPLAY CLASS; END SEASON IN SECOND SPOT [Newspaper Article] — Corsair — 25 February 1931
ORANGE AND GRAY IS RUNNER-UP CORSAIRS DISPLAY CLASS; END SEASON IN SECOND SPOT Chaffey Only Quintet To Defeat S. M. J. C. On Two Occasions A bad start at the beginning of the season, and still they came on and won second place in the conference standings. That's Santa Monica Junior College's basketball quintet, 100 percent. Chaffey J. C. won the conference berries, and Mishler's men were right behind them. As a matter of fact, it was only three points behind them. Prior to the first conference tiff with San Bernardino, "Dink" Thomas, regular forward, was declared ineligible, making things rather tough for Coach Floyd Mishler, who already had a good idea of what his team would look like. This new setback, however, put somewhat of a dent in things. It was not long before everything was according to Hoyle again, thanks to Coach Mishler's efforts. Captain Wally Hickman and Bill Athey were used as guards; Pop O'Rourke as center, and Duane Stevenson and various other capable men at the ot...
TRACKMEN WILL MEET CHAFFEY [Newspaper Article] — Corsair — 25 February 1931
TRACKMEN WILL MEET CHAFFEY With the basketball sport now shoved into oblivion until next year, Coach Osterholt's track artists will occupy the limelight for a while. The first conference trackfest of the season is Saturday, with Chaffey Junior College, at the Panther oval. For the past few months the Corsair spikesters have been diligently practicing and gradually working themselves into condition. This year the Santa Monicans. have a better balanced aggregation than la'st year, and no doubt should give a good account of themselves before long. Although practically nothing is known of the Panther track outfit, it is said they possess a fairly strong group, which figures tp extend the Corsairs lo the limit. Only too well does everyone remember how the Chaffey Panthers defeated the S. M. J. C. melon-tossers, to win the championship. And now the Corsair runners will attempt to avenge the basketball for said defeats. There are 31 men on the 1931 outfit, and if Captain Harry Wills' men a...
CORSAIRS WIN; 4 PLAY LAST GAME FOR S.M.J.C. [Newspaper Article] — Corsair — 25 February 1931
CORSAIRS WIN; 4 PLAY LAST GAME FOR S.M.J.C. By Fred Salter Closing the 1930-31 season in a blaze of glory, the Santa Monica Junior College basketball team rose to inspired heights to defeat the Citrus J. C. quintet, 38 to 21, in a game played on the losers' court last Saturday. Three members of the Corsair first team played their last basketball game against Citrus, showing some stellar basketball while they were in the fray. Captain Wally Hickman, Bill Athey and "Steve" Stevenson closed an illustrious casaba career in real style by playing heads-up ball, to run up a large enough lead to allow every member of the squad to see action. The game was loosely played and marred by numerous fouls. Citrus showed flashy basketball at times, but could not stand up under the scorching pace set by the Corsair five. Substitutes of the Santa Monica team showed up well, which makes things look rather bright for next season. Pop O'Rourke was high-point man of the game, with 16 digits to his credit....
TARGET PRACTICE [Newspaper Article] — Corsair — 25 February 1931
TARGET PRACTICE By Gus Vlgnolle Chaffey Junior College won the eastern division basketball gonfalon, and, consequently, plays Los Angeles Jaysee, western division winner, for the Southern California junior college pennant. The Corsairs came three points from acquiring the crown, but that doesn't cat any ice. Chaffey had a good team, and fully deserves the honor it won. Now, all we can hope for is a Panther win when Mitchell's men take on the Cubs of L. A. J. C. for the title. We want a western division winner. Good luck, Chaffey! WE TAKE OFF OUR HATS At the end of the basketball season we doff our hats and bow low to a diligent and hard-fighting casaba squad; to Captain Wally Hickman and Bill Athey, guards; Pop O'Rourke, center, and Duane Stevenson, Jim Moore, A 1 Kent and George Pride, forwards; to a hard-plugging and willing band of reserves; to Managers Fred Salter and Steve Robinson, and lastly, and probably most important, to Coach Floyd Mlshler, that suave and affable friend o...
Tennis Men Have Big Try-Out Tournament [Newspaper Article] — Corsair — 25 February 1931
Tennis Men Have Big Try-Out Tournament Much confusion has arisen as to the plans for tennis, so here is the dope. There is now in progress an elimination tournament to decide the ten players who will form the squad. The tenth man will then be open to challenge by anyone eligible for athletics. Challenging works as follows: Say the tenth man is challenged and beaten. The winner then plays the ninth man before he himself can be challenged by other competitors for tenth place. Should he vanquish the ninth man, he has the same chance at eighth man, and so on up the line. Thus the brunt of the attack falls upon the tenth man, who, when beaten, is automatically dropped from the squad. As soon as th£ present contest is completed, a list of rankings will be posted in the J. C. field house and challenges for tenth place will then be in order. According to Coach Floyd Mishler, baseball practice will not start for about one week yet. ' He intends to have some of the men who have been out for b...

COLLEGE WOMEN ATTEND SOOY'S FASHION LECTURE [Newspaper Article] — Corsair — 4 March 1931
COLLEGE WOMEN ATTEND SOOY'S FASHION LECTURE The women of the Junior College were afforded the pleasure of hearing Mrs. Louise Pinkney Sooy, head of the art department at U. C. L. A., in one of her fashion lectures, when she appeared before the Samohi Girls' League assembly last Thursday. Mrs. Sooy brought with her a group of girls from U. C. L. A. as models, and presented her talk in connection with the gowns as they were worn. She particularly emphasized the point that simplicity in line and color brings out the best qualities and makes the most of individual beauty. She presented sport clothes, gowns for afternoon and evening, and beach togs. Sports dresses were in the majority, however, for, as she pointed out, school girls should be more interested in sports things because they are being worn almost altogether on college campuses now. In fact it is only occasionally that one sees a long trailing afternoon gown slinking around the school grounds. Mrs. Sooy helped in the designing...

Zoology Class Works On Live Frog's Heart By destroying the brain, along with some clever dissection, Mr. Bauer's zoology II class was able to observe the beating of a frog's heart during one of the regular laboratory periods last Monday. If the frog had been put into the proper salt solution he would have lived for 24 hours in that condition, but, as it was, he only lasted a few hours. This frog was donated by Sue Fisher.
