Beta Glass Passes Hat To Wipe Out Deficit [Newspaper Article] — Corsair — 11 March 1931
Beta Glass Passes Hat To Wipe Out Deficit Speaking of co-operation, the Beta Class certainly has it. At the class meeting Tuesday it was announced that a seven dollar deficit must be met by the class immediately. Someone suggested passing the hat; however, as no hat was available, a tennis racket was used. At the termination of its journey, the deficit had been made up, and the class is now once more above water. A very fine crowd of classmates, those Betas! Can Mr. Frog be hypnotized by holding him in your hand and caressing his stomach very slowly ? Ask Suzanne Fisher.

Lofty Buildings For Lofty Purposes [Newspaper Article] — Corsair — 11 March 1931
Lofty Buildings For Lofty Purposes "Shall the Bay Cities building become Santa Monica's new city hall?" is asked by a local city newspaper. Myron H. Wells, receiver in bankruptcy for the owners seems to have suggested the idea. In case the City officials overlook this excellent opportunity, and it looks as though they might, we would like to suggest that Mr. Wells offer the building to the Board of Education as being the ideal structure for a junior college. What could be more appropriate than a lofty building to house its lofty ideals? The unprecedented growth of the newest of institutions would seem to indicate that it would soon be none too large. The need for a gymnasium would be eliminated; w;ith the English department housed on the second floor, science on the twelfth, history on the third floor, and modern languages on the eleventh, mathematics on the fourth, and so on, it can easily be seen that further exercise than climbing the stairs would be uncalled for. Many students w...
The Value of Scholarship [Newspaper Article] — Corsair — 11 March 1931
The Value of Scholarship Extra-curricular activities prepare one for future leadership in the business and social world. Such is the statement that we so often hear on our college campus Statistics are usually considered as a great aid in finding out the truth about any situation, and so let us consider a few statistics as presented by the Bell System after a careful investigation. With the willing co-operation of the various colleges represented by these men, they were divided, as employees, into four groups according to their scholastic records made in college. The first group consisted of the first tenth; the second of the first third, exclusive of the first tenth; the third of the median third; and the fourth of the low third. The Bell System used the salaries of these men as a measure of success, and it was found that at ten years after graduation the median salary of the first group was something over 10 percent more than the median salary of the entire group; at twenty years ...
EXCHANGES [Newspaper Article] — Corsair — 11 March 1931
EXCHANGES Sleeping in classrooms is sanctioned av the Syracuse University. Snoring, however, bars students from the privilege. Dr. Louis. Hickernell, professor of hygiem at that institution, announced recently that he had no objection to students sleeping in class as long as they did not interrupt the lectures. Finishing touches are being made on the new 2300,000 artificial ice skating rink for*the recreation of all students at the University of Illinois. The rink is to be paid for from the 1929 grid profits. Coe College recently staged an'official flunkers' frolic. Those "eds" and co-eds who came to college but failed to make the grade (or grades) were the guests of honor. An inspector of detectives, two police captains and the private secretary of the mayor of Los Angeles are among the members of a class in public administration given every Wednesday evening by Professor John Pfiffner of U. S. C. Invitation has been extended to Junior College and High School students to attend the...
CAMPUS CHUCKLES [Newspaper Article] — Corsair — 11 March 1931
CAMPUS CHUCKLES A Racial Impossibility In the smoking room of a hotel the guest from Scotland had been boring everybody with tales of the wonderful things he had done. "Well," said a bored Englishman, after a time, "suppose you tell us something you can't do, and, by jove, I'll undertake to do it myself." "Thank ye," replied Sandy. "I canna pay ma bill." Golfer (to players ahead): Pardon, but would you mind if I played through? I've just heard that my wife has taken very seriously ill." Two youths were seated in a trolley-car. A stout woman attempted to rise to get off, but, on account of her weight and the motion of the car, she experienced some difficulty. "If she ate yeast, maybe she'd rise better," said one of the youths to his companion, in what was meant to be a whisper. But the car had come to a stop, and the " whisper" was audible throughout the entire car. The stout woman, who had by this time gained her feet, turned on her taunter suddently and rasped: "And if you'd try so...
Barks From The Balcony [Newspaper Article] — Corsair — 11 March 1931
Barks From The Balcony By ART REDDEN We're glad that Mr. Barnum had a good trip back to the superintendents' convention at Detroit, and we are happy to see him back in the harness once more. And speaking of harness reminds us of Big Bill Thompson. He has been claiming that he wears no man's halter in this race for mayor. We quite agree with him; A 1 Capone can't be said to fall into that category. With such beautiful weather as we are having now, wouldn't it be great to start classes around seven in the morning, and end up an hour earlier? If the daylight saving bill had passed, that is just what we could have done. Oh, well, we have yet to see legislation go through 011 any worthwhile project. If better speakers than the one we had yesterday can be obtained, we don't know where. As an all-around interesting speaker, Mr. McMannus takes the prize. Ireland surely must be heaven if it is all he intimated. Now that all the classes are organized, more activity than has been displayed in ...
S. M. FORENSIC ARTISTS GARNER SECOND PLACE [Newspaper Article] — Corsair — 11 March 1931
S. M. FORENSIC ARTISTS GARNER SECOND PLACE Santa Monica's debate team finished the season with honors, taking second place in the final round-up of the Western Division. The score is as follows: Los Angeles first, Santa Monica second, Long Beach third, and tie between Compton and Santa Ana. Mr. T. W. Wallbank is particularly pleased with the showing made by the group, and hopes next year for a nucleus of debators.

The debate teams were composed of: Virginia Cargill, A 1 Hawley, Arline Mcßride and Art Redden; John Reynolds, Morse Little, Art Redden and Arline Mcßride.
JAYSEE STUDENTS LACK CO-OP SPIRIT [Newspaper Article] — Corsair — 11 March 1931
JAYSEE STUDENTS LACK CO-OP SPIRIT Bv ENID BOTTERELI Group pictures for the Spin Drift were taken during x period last Thursday, March 5, in the Greek Theater. This article was meant to be just a statement of facts; but the conditions which prevailed last Thursday have necessitated a little stronger writeup. The group pictures were scheduled each at a certain time. Either the students went at least fifteen minutes late or they didn't go at all. Co-operation was utterlylacking. Jaysee has heretofore had very little trouble along this line, and if is hoped that this situation will not continue. Jaysee wishes to have an excellent Spin Drift this first year, but such lack of cooperation on the part of the students will never attain this. Arthur Redden, Charles Moore and Dorothy Murray assumed command of the few handfuls who condescended to be included in the group pictures. Let's show our good sportsmanship in another way, since most of us passed up an excellent opportunity to do this on...
The Makeup Box [Newspaper Article] — Corsair — 11 March 1931
The Makeup Box BV LARRY MAGEE "REACHING FOR THE MOON' Well, well! Old Doug Fairbanks is back again. You'd think that the studios, after loading such a lot of bum actors on the public, would try to find some good new ones, but no, they have to try to modernize the old ones. Fairbanks is just as terrible in his modern role as he was in his old ones. If you can imagine one man running \A£all Street, having a dozen phones on his desk and answering one after another, buying stocks by the thousands and finally falling for a girl with big feet, you have imagined Doug in his new role. Sometime, we hope, he will get wise to himself and realize that there is only one actor in the family and that he just i,sn't it. Edward Everett Horton is the high light of the picture, without him it would be a total flop. "ONCE IN A LIFETIME" "Once in a Lifetime" is still going strong. Considering it as a farce about Hollywood and written by a man who has never been there, leads us to believe that we can do ...

Tennis Rules Revised After Defeat by Vikes [Newspaper Article] — Corsair — 11 March 1931
Tennis Rules Revised After Defeat by Vikes Failure of the elimination contest to come to a timely conclusion has made necessary a complete revision. Proof of our unpreparedness was the 16-0 washout at Long Beach last Saturday, and it is to guard against similar defeats that the following changes are made: First, the elimination contest is declared null and void. Second, a tentative ranking has been posted in the J. C. field house, the main objective being to give the team a fidenite starting point from which immediate results can be obtained. Third, practice will be every afternoon not any old time one feels like it, as haj been the case heretofore. And fourth, the formation for league matches will be as follows: First and second man will play first and second singles respectively. Third and fourth man will team up as first doubles, while to the fifth and sixth men will fall the second doubles berth.
TRACKMEN MEET RIVERSIDE SAT. [Newspaper Article] — Corsair — 11 March 1931
TRACKMEN MEET RIVERSIDE SAT. Coach Bill Ostcrholt's track team again travels next Saturday, this time trekking to Riverside, where they will meet the Riverside Jaysee Tigers in what promises to be a hotly-contested track meet. The Tigers boast of a fairly strong aggregation this year. Although the Corsairs have lost to the strong Chaffey J. C. and U. C. L. A. cinder path artists, they are steadily improving, and figure to have an even chance of winning against the Bengals. In Jackman and Ruf, Coach Osterholt has two fair sprinters, while in the 440, Captain Harry Wills is the best bet. B. White and Hromadka look good in high and low barriers, and Hammer and Wills fare up well in the 880. Watson, Rankin. Reno, Guercio and Jackman should gather a digit here and there in the field events. All those able to go to Ri\«crside Saturday and support the team are urged to do so without fail.
Chaffey Jaysee Annexes Title [Newspaper Article] — Corsair — 11 March 1931
Chaffey Jaysee Annexes Title By virtue of winning two out of three games from Los Angeles Junior College, the Chaffey Jaysee basketball players annexed the Southern California crown last Saturday, when they defeated the Cubs in the third and deciding tussle of the series, 29 to 24. The game was played at Whittier High. At half-time the Cubs led, 14 to 9, and managed to hold a fair lead until the final nine minutes of play. It was at this point that Coach Mitchell's men turned on full steam ahead and went places and did things. After the smoke had cleared, the Ontario boys had won by 5 digits, and were the possessors of the gonfalon. Carter, with 12 points to his credit, starred for the Panthers, while Forbes looked good for the losers. ChafTey will now have to point her guns northward, the Menlo Junior College casaba-tossers being the opposition for the" State title.
W. A. A. Sends Speedball Team to Chaffey Playday [Newspaper Article] — Corsair — 11 March 1931
W. A. A. Sends Speedball Team to Chaffey Playday ChafTey Junior College was tile scene of the second playday of this year, which was held Saturday, March 7. The VV. A.A. of the Jaysee sent a speedball team, tennis doubles team, and a group of tap dancers. The tennis doubles, composed of Regina Bender and Lucile Williams, were the Igne winners of the day. Considering the short period of time during which the speedball team was able to practice together, it, made a very good showing.
Corsair Ball Team Recuperates To Win Over Long Beach [Newspaper Article] — Corsair — 11 March 1931
Corsair Ball Team Recuperates To Win Over Long Beach Displaying good form and showing ability that may mean much later in the season, Coach Floyd Mishler's Santa Monica Junior College baseball team won the first tiff of the season from the Long Beach Jaysee nine, 7 to 2. The game, the first one in the history of the Corsairs, was held on the losers' field. Prospects Appear Good Having practiced only one week, the Corsair aggregation showed signs of a snappy and wide-awake outfit, of which considerably more is yet to be heard. With the Long Beachers leading 1 to 0, the Mishlerites went on a scoring plunge, rallying in the fifth inning to bring in five runs. Corsairs Rally Coming to, like one roughly shaken from sleep, the Corsair reawakening period was more than the Viking hurler could stand. The Santa Monican hitters smacked him for four hits, the five tallies resulting. Two more runs were registered in the sixth and seventh session. Ail in all, S. M. registered nine hits to the los...
Corsair Nine Awaits Ventura Onslaught [Newspaper Article] — Corsair — 11 March 1931
Corsair Nine Awaits Ventura Onslaught What should turn out to be another good baseball game is on tap for Santa Monica Junior College students Saturday when Coach Floyd Mishler's Corsair horsehiders ■ take on the strong Ventura Jaysee nine on the Clover Field diamond.
