Los Hidalgos Serve Typical Spanish Meal [Newspaper Article] — Corsair — 4 March 1931
Los Hidalgos Serve Typical Spanish Meal The Spanish Club gave a dinner last Wednesday evening in the teachers' cafeteria as a reception for the new members coming into the club this semester. The dinner was typically Spanish, and was served by Betty Livingston, Margaret Johnson, Lucile Williams and Edward Villarreal, who were dressed in Spanish costumes. After the dinner the members were entertained with piano selections by Perry Myers. A vocal solo, "La Golondrina," by Eric Moore and Lucile Williams, told the legend of the origin of pulque, a Spanish drink.

Reginalda Bradshaw spent an enjoyable day at Santa Barbara last Sunday. It is reported that Morse Little and "Scotty" Sterling enjoyed a good swim last Thursday during x period. Incidentally, they were both late for their fifth period classes. Last Friday night Elvina Halleck attended the opera "Aida," given at the Shrine auditorium. The Thursday previous Elizabeth Maries heard "Lucia di Lammermoor." And then they say J. C. students aren't intellectual!

A. friends in her home in Beverly Hills, late Saturday afternoon. Contract bridge and dancing were the forms of entertainment. Bernice Steinman and Roma Rutherford saw Ann...
CORSAIR RUNNERS MEET YEARLINGS [Newspaper Article] — Corsair — 4 March 1931
CORSAIR RUNNERS MEET YEARLINGS In a meet to be held at the U. C. L. A. oval, Tuesday, March 10, the Corsair tracksters will attempt to even the score between themselves and the Bruin frosh. The Yearlings nosed out the locals by a very close margin last year. Although the Bruins have the edge on Coach Osterholt's men in potential first places, the Corsair squad is much larger and should pick several points in seconds and thirds. If Fred Jackman comes through as he did at Chaffey, he should give the Frosh men a real run in the century. Bud Ruf and Stan White might upset the dope, however. The 220 looks like a win for U. C. L. A. McGeah has run it in 22 seconds already this season. The 440 looks like a toss-up between Wills of Santa Monica and Whittier of the Bruins, both men having run the quarter around 53 seconds. Santa Monica should take one two in the half mile. U. C. L. A. is strong in the distance runs, and will probably clean up in this department; however, the Corsair weightto...

NET MEN TO SPEED PLAY [Newspaper Article] — Corsair — 4 March 1931
NET MEN TO SPEED PLAY Students who are to participate in the double elimination tennis tournament which is now in progress at S. M. J. C. are urged to "get the lead out" and speed things up a bit. See the list of players, and play the opponent opposite your monicker. It is imperative that the eliminations be completed as soon as possible, because practice matches should start about March 21. Some good practice tussles would do the Corsair racquet-wielders a world of good, and it is a cinch they would then be in excellent condition to meet much of the tougher opposition that is yet to come. There are at the present time ten men left who will fight it out for the various positions on the team during the coming week. The survivors are: Everett Hartung, Jim Davis, Torn De Ghionno, Richard Rowe, Ralph Barber, Keith Smart, Paul Erns, O. A. Turner, Jack Burriston and Ed Kelly.

Horsehide Tossers Commence Practice [Newspaper Article] — Corsair — 4 March 1931
Horsehide Tossers Commence Practice The sound of horsehide resounding against ash was heard for the first time Monday afternoon when the Santa Monica Junior College baseball team took its first workout of the current season. "Prospects are bright for a successful season," is the way Coach Floyd Mishler puts it, and, after glimpsing a few of the stars-to-be in action, it is plain to see that Mishler's optimism has a firm foundation. Fully twenty candidates reported for the initial practice. Those reporting were: Grant, Cooper, Edgerton, Ecker, Shea, Emanuelli, Fredericks, Fedderson, J. Moor, Nutting, Small, Athey, Stevenson, Richmond, Algrim, Bailey, Gaston, Hickman and Hurst. Manager Victor Thomas states that practice will be held every night on the Southern Pacific diamond.
Natators Begin Intensive Work [Newspaper Article] — Corsair — 4 March 1931
Natators Begin Intensive Work Working out four nights a week at the Lido Club pool, the Santa Monica Junior College swimming team is rapidly rounding into form. Coach Bill Osterholt, now engaged with track duties, will handle the natators for the 1931 season. Mr. Osterholt believes the Orange-and-Gray swimmers will be much more successful during the impending season than they were in their 1930 campaign. Although only three or four men had been working out during the past few weeks, around ten or twelve are expected to commence practice in the very near future. Intensive and hard training is slated to start within one week. Several lettermen will strengthen the team's hopes for the 1931 season. A complete schedule of practice will be printed in an early issue of the Samojac.
Wot's Wot Wot of It [Newspaper Article] — Corsair — 4 March 1931
Wot's Wot Wot of It By Gus Vignolle If memory serves correctly, S. M. J. C.'s 1930 track team was squelched from pillar to post, time after time. It was even heartbreaking and pitiful. That was a tough year, and things lacked the usual spontaneity. But Good-Time Charlie has been around the Orange-and-Gray institution lately, and there is a prevailing rumor that he may stick around in this neck of the woods. Saturday, Coach Bill Osterholt's crew lost to Chaffey, 74 to 58. But quite a difference from some of last year's landslides. A glance at a recent Issue of the "War Whoop," San Bernardino Jaysee publication, shows an allconference basketball five selected by their sports staff. (Any guy can pick his own team, anyway.) But, just the same, "Pop" O'Rourke and Captain Wally Hickman, center and guard, respectively, were chosen on it. The other three men chosen follow: Carter, Chaffey; Cunnison, San Bernardino, and Needham, Riverside. Out in that thar valley the Indians probably still h...
New Matriculation [Newspaper Article] — Corsair — 11 March 1931
New Matriculation Diploma Transfer Courses To Be Eliminated University Permits Dr. Bush To Institute Time-Shortener One of the greatest innovations in Junior College matriculation requirements was announced in a compulsory assembly yesterday by Dr. Ralph H. Bush, director. Many students will be enabled to complete their junior certificate requirements in the regular foursemester period, who were formerly blocked from so doing because of the discounting of diploma transfer credits. The designation of students as being Certificate, Diploma, or Diploma transfer will be entirely done away with, and all students upon entering will be classified as belonging to Group I or Group 11. Group I will be comprised of those students having twelve or more recommended high school credits, or are eligible to enter the University of California as freshmen. These may select any curriculum they wish to follow. Group II .will be comprised of all students having less than twelve recom- (Continued on Page...
FIRST WOMEN'S CIRCUS MARCH 13 [Newspaper Article] — Corsair — 11 March 1931
FIRST WOMEN'S CIRCUS MARCH 13 Women's Association To Give Show for Women Only Pink lemonade, peanuts, popcorn and such things will be very much in evidence about the campus on the evening of March thirteenth, when the Women's Athletic Association will open the first Circus. The women's gymnasium will serve as the "big tent," states Miss Joy Rutherford in previewing the event. If is believed that with the co-operation of all the college women the event may become an annual one. The circus has been planned as a means of creating further interest in women's sports and the women's athletic organization, as well as in the outside activities that the latter organization spon.sors. While the club has more than doubled its membership during the past semester, it is'hoped that circus activities will add further interest in the'club's activities for non-members. Men will be distinctly de trop when eight o'clock arrives, Friday night, says Miss Rutherford; the feminine members of the student b...

WHO'S NEXT? [Newspaper Article] — Corsair — 11 March 1931
WHO'S NEXT? Outstanding characters in this school are becoming few and far between. We seem to have discovered the weal; points of the great number of "big men" —so for a little "funning" with the small ones. And what could be smaller than Little? Little "Pigmy" Morse Little. In spite of his size we rather like the boy, when, all of a sudden-like, he took up with that woman of the world, "Merry" Lou Carnes. Dear little "Merry" Lou and poor little Little. Late nights and dissipation are very bad for children. Ask us—we know! Anyhow, there always is Freddie Tsheppe, who isn't so big, and not nearly as grand as he thinks he is. We've been properly impressed for years with his linguistic ability, and his nasal voice never has appealed to us. At any rate, he feels self-satisfaction very keenly, and his Don Juan propensities always have amused us —but back to little people—. Gushman, for example. Dear little philosopher Gushman. if one would go (Continued on Page Three) (Continued from Pa...

Christopher Praised [Newspaper Article] — Corsair — 11 March 1931
Christopher Praised DEAR EDITOR: (CHRIS SANDSTONE) We were sorry to see that Christopher Sandstone's column was criticized in last week's issue by an Alpha. Of course, we realize that one Alpha's judgment on such a column would ordinarily be much inferior to that of an upper classman. Still we didn't expect to see this inferiority displayed to everyone. Are we to take from this criticism that one of the Alphas has not yet learned the lesson of sportsmanship so prevalent at S. M. J. C.? If taken in the manner it is written, this column should leave only a smile on the faces of all concerned.—E. B. and M. L. C.
