Dr. Bode Visits Here For Education Study [Newspaper Article] — Corsair — 4 March 1931
Dr. Bode Visits Here For Education Study Santa Monica was honored last Monday afternoon, with a visit by Dr. Boyd H. Bode of Ohio State University, and head of the department of principles of education, and Dr. Louis A. Pechstein, Dean of School of Education, at the University of Cincinnati. These men came to California principally to confer with Dr. Bush and to study our western institutions. They were much interested in Santa Monica Junior College and chose it as the first one to visit. Both are authors of books on education, and they have planned to make Santa Monica their home whilestudying education in junior colleges.
WHO'S NEXT? [Newspaper Article] — Corsair — 4 March 1931
WHO'S NEXT? Hampered as we are by examinations and nasty letters regarding our "low humor," we find it difficult to begin our column. At last, in a spirit of complete ennui, we hit upon Larry Magee. Little Larry of the "Drammer" and the column of the Make-up Box. We know things about Larry that we wouldn't even mention in this column. An erstwhile student body president, formerly a man-about-school, he seems to have slipped into obscurity. However, you can't keep a good man down —and we graduate soon. Memory clicks as we see a peddler rolling an apple cart down the road. Dear Little Lady Seine, with her polishing tendencies, and her querulous Yankee voice peeling out "That's what 1 thought." We don't hold it against her. We just suggest that, if she thinks so, not to bother asking questions. Anyway, she gets A's and seems happy, much to our chagrin. Personally, we're mad at Gus Vignolle, and find it difficult to treat him in the firm, impersonal manner with which we (Continued on Pa...
FACULTY LEADS, DELTAS SECOND IN BOOK SALES [Newspaper Article] — Corsair — 4 March 1931
FACULTY LEADS, DELTAS SECOND IN BOOK SALES With "Spin Drift" sales around the 180 mark, this week finds the circulation campaign working hard to push the total number of subscriptions far beyond two hundred. Every period of the day some member of the staff will be at a table in the hall, so that payments may be made any time. This is to encourage students to buy the book before the increase in price becomes prevalent. Frosh Well In Rear A survey of the sales finds the faculty far in the lead, in the percentage of sales. They are hovering close to the 80 percent mark, with the Deltas a strong second, having 65 percent. The other three classes are for down the column, but by the end of the week it is estimated that they will be pushing the leaders. The Betas are standing with 48 percent, with most of their standing due to recent purchases. The Alphas, champions of rope-pulling, will require quite a bit of inside pulling in order to justify their claim to being the College's peppiest c...

Wanted—More Songs [Newspaper Article] — Corsair — 4 March 1931
Wanted —More Songs A great dramatist once said, "The man that hath no music in his soul is fit for murders and conspiracies and for every evil work of blackest dye." This attitude is indeed quite natural and true, for if music consists essentially in the agreement of sweet sounds and in the abolition of all discords, it naturally follows that the music of the soul in the moral world must be essentially the harmony of all pure, noble and joyous emotions to the exclusion of all moral discords. Now, to consider this matter in its less idealistic and more practical aspect, we find that the United States leads the entire world in collections of students' songs, Canada, Germany and Great Britain following in the order named. Here, however, in the Santa Monica Junior College, where practically all the characteristics of a modern college are found, there is still one extremely important feature lacking —namely, students' songs. True, this was not always the case in our College, for during t...
Pride In Organizations [Newspaper Article] — Corsair — 4 March 1931
Pride In Organizations It is with great pride that we call attention to the large number of clubs and organizations in our College. We have often been told that a person's college education is not complete without some kind of an extra-curricular activity. This may be true, but activities of this kind may also be a menace. So many students instead of joining one or two clubs and working for all that they can get out of it, merely dabble and skim the surface from half-a-dozen clubs. In this way they are not only a menace to themselves, but a detriment to the clubs. It might be well for all of us to stop and think of the message embodied in the old adage, | "A rolling stone-gathers no moss." —M. L. The Samojac has from time to time been greatly indebted to outside sources for aid and co-operation in making it as successful as it has been. Not the least of these,lbenefactors has been the Santa Monica Outlook, which has frequently loaned cuts for use in these pages.—J. R. We wonder what...
EXCHANGES [Newspaper Article] — Corsair — 4 March 1931
EXCHANGES Colors and modern art will feature Modesto Junior College's annual. A scholastic roll of honor is being run semi-annually by the Modesto Junior Collegian. There was a 21 percent increase in enrollment at Modesto Junior College during fall semester. Several Junior College students are expected to attend the De Molay semiformal dance, Beverly Hills chapter, the evening of March 6 at the Sala de Oro, Biltmore Hotel.
A SMILE [Newspaper Article] — Corsair — 4 March 1931
A SMILE Nothing on earth can smile but man. Gems may flash reflected light, but what is a diamond-flash compared to an eyeflash and a mirth-flash? Flowers cannot smile; this is a charm that even they cannot claim. It is the prerogative of man; it is the color which love wears, and cheerfulness and joy—these three. It : is the light in the windows of the face, by which the heart signifies it is at home, ; waiting. A face that cannot smile is like ; a bud that cannot blossom, and dries up on the stalk. Laughter is day, and sobriety is night, and a smile is the twilight that hovers gently between both —more bewitching than either. —Henry Ward I Beecher. Did you know that Professor Stickle calls all teachers "school marms"?
CAMPUS CHUCKLES [Newspaper Article] — Corsair — 4 March 1931
CAMPUS CHUCKLES And now we have the Scotchman who married a tattooed dancer, so that hia children could see moving pictures. Fuller Gloom says: You hardly know, these days, when you hear a woman telling about having nothing to wear, whether she is boasting or complaining. The saddest story of the month was about the too-observant fellow who remarked to his girl, "Your stockings seem rather wrinkled, dearest." "You brute," exclaimed the dear girl, "I have no stockings on." Music Teacher: What is your idea of harmony? Glynn Reineman: A freckle-faced girl, wearing a polka-dot dress, and leading a giraffe. Sign in delicatessen: If you can't smell it, we haven't got it. For Sale: One slightly used slide-rule. Needs greasing badly. Tell fortunes, predict the weather, do your history lesson, and keep your diary on this slide-rule. Will sell for a song not over two years old.—Frank Watson. One of the funniest things in the world is to Tisten to a bachelor and a married man giving each other...
Barks From The Balcony [Newspaper Article] — Corsair — 4 March 1931
Barks From The Balcony By ART REDDEN Well, if increased prosperity doesn't come now that Congress has about hocked the White House, we don't know when it will come. We can't see where a depression can be cured by burdening an already heavily weighted down populace. The big mystery now is what has become of Edna Cooper. Maybe the girl wants a movie contract and she doesn't feel her prowess with a plane was enough to get her signed up so she is pulling an "Aimee" in hopes the added publicity will bring its reward. We see where there is a dearth of stories for the studios. A suggestion which we think worth while is for the studios to make the story of the life of a junior college professor. The latest game for grafters seems to lie suing papers who are exposing them. After cleaning up several and many thousands of dollars in the San Gabriel' Dam fiasco, we find contractor Eaton bringing suit for many more thousands against the Daily News. We suppose that if we published the inside of s...

Brea Pits Are Scene of Action for Geologists [Newspaper Article] — Corsair — 4 March 1931
Brea Pits Are Scene of Action for Geologists Mr. Osterholt's class in geology journeyed, Friday, March 27, to La Brea pits, where they studied Miocene and Pliocene formations—these pits being the only place in the world where these two formations are found in the same place. Bones thousands of years old were viewed in their natural state. Their preservation is due to an asphaltic tar and gas formation. The students were directed to various pits for thorough investigations from which reports are to be written.
Christopher Criticised [Newspaper Article] — Corsair — 4 March 1931
Christopher Criticised EDITOR OF SAMOJAC: (CHRISTOPHER?) As a member of the student body of Santa Monica Junior College I would like to object to the manner of writing the type of wit, pseudo humor and general idea of self-importance of the author of "Who's Next?" Not since the column first appeared has there been one single paragraph of worth. Specifically do we object to the last issue in which the humor was not only exceptionally low, but played upon words to the point where an innocent person's feelings were hurt. Here's for a bigger and better Samojac. BETTE HIMMEON.
PROF. FINDS FOR LIE DE [Newspaper Article] — Corsair — 4 March 1931
PROF. FINDS FOR LIE DE The other day Prof. Rodney Mott, of the University of Chicago, said to his "I will give you just twenty-four hours to return to the library five valuable books on constitutional law, taken obviously by some of you. If the return is not made within the time specified, I shall have each of you subjected to a test of the lie detector." The five books are back where they belong. So, too, are five others, missing from the previous semester.

Japanese Tea Lovely Event for New Women [Newspaper Article] — Corsair — 4 March 1931
Japanese Tea Lovely Event for New Women The reception tea welcoming the new women students into the college was held last Wednesday afternoon in the girls' gymnasium. The decorations, program and refreshments all carried out the Japanese idea. Duska Kirkpatrick had arranged a very lovely program consisting of: a song and a tap dance by the Pettit sisters; a piano solo by Shirley Martin; and Alice Lloyd accompanied by Elizabeth Maries whistled two selections, "A Chinese Lullaby" and "Valse Lucile." After the program tea was served Up to date the Student Body Commission has considered the budgets of the W. A. A., the A. W. S., and the Spanish Club. All other clubs and organizations are urged to get their budgets in by next week or they may be surprised to learn that there is no money left for their particular wants or needs. The W. A. A. has accepted an invitation to attend a Play-Day at Chaffey Junior College on Saturday, March 7, and is planning to take two speedball teams and a ten...
HOWARD ANDREWS IN DIFFICULT ROLE [Newspaper Article] — Corsair — 4 March 1931
HOWARD ANDREWS IN DIFFICULT ROLE Boris, one of the most difficult parts in the "Fortune Teller," will be played by Howard Andrews. Howard has lived an eventful life since he was born in Beaukota, Washington, July 12, 1909. Which date, dear friends and relatives, makes him "sweet twenty-one and never been kissed," to quote the gentleman. Not only has he held a position as inspector for the General Electric Company, worked in New York City, Universal Pictures, and as a radio singer, but also has toured the National Parks and spent a year in South America. "I am enjoying this opera more than anything I've ever done before. It is a reSl pleasure to work under Miss Loughran's -direction," states Howard The foolish part of Boris, the gypsy leader, is a mixture of farce, comedy and joviality. Though weighing in the neighborhood of 250 pounds, Boris is quite agile and provides a great deal of the comedy by his dance, "Gypsy Chopsticks." He and Fresco together bring down the house. See them ...
