Victorious Corsairs Play Stellar Defense In Game IVith Los Angeles Quintet [Newspaper Article] — Corsair — 12 November 1929
Victorious Corsairs Play Stellar Defense In Game IVith Los Angeles Quintet Coupling a smashing offense with a stonewall defense, the Corsairs defeated the Los Angeles Pacific College last Wednesday afternoon at the Lincoln Junior High School gymnasium. score, 40-15, was indicative of the type of basketball Santa Monica played. Not one of the visitors' goals were made inside of the foul line. They took long shots because they found it was useless to try to penetrate the Corsair defense. TheO Los Angeles team had a couple of "Deadeye Dicks" in their squad, however, and sank some " mean" baskets. Their passing was good and the Coach complimented them on their prospects of a good running team The two teams worked together very nicely. L. A. P. C. had some new plays they wanted to try, and Santa Monica didn't mind practicing a little defense. However, one cannot blame Santa Monica for taking the ball now and then, and making a few points. The visitors were slow in getting their plays sta...

(Women's Athletic Association) the third period Thursday, but no women were there.

A meeting was held again on Tuesday, November 13, 1929, at ten o'clock for the purpose of organizing the W. A. A. A constitution committee was chosen to work on a W. A. A. constitution which will be presentable to the W. A. F. (Women's Athletic Federation). After the W. A. A. is organized there will be managers for various sports.

Sport Randoms [Newspaper Article] — Corsair — 12 November 1929
Sport Randoms The Golden Bear continued its winning tune by bowling over Montana with second and third string men. The varsity went in for a period for a slight workout. The two best cupids are the Misses Lillian Machado and Eleanor Niblev. They have made the highest scores in archery so far, and are ready to give information on the art of arrow-slinging and "beaux." If there were ever two games played against the same team in the same bowl in exactly opposite tempo, the California and Nevada games were it. Southern California's opponents were as different in caliber as day is different from night. U. C. L. A. will meet the Galloping Gaels in the Coliseum this coming Saturday in what will prove to be an interesting battle. The Westwood boys have been tasting Madigan's plays in practice and let's hope they have cultivated that taste by Saturday. Stanford received the surprise of its life last Saturday when the Huskies smacked them so hard on the chin that they could only make one tou...

Spartans Defeat J. C. Basketeers [Newspaper Article] — Corsair — 12 November 1929
Spartans Defeat J. C. Basketeers The Immanuel Presbyterian Church Spartans defeated the Corsairs last Friday at the Spartans' gymnasium in Los Angeles. This victory gave them a two-to-one lead in the series of basketball games played so far. It was quite evident that the Corsairs were lacking in something, and whether it was the absence of one of the ablest members of the squad (the Coach has asked that no personal mention be made, as yet, of players, regardless of ability) or not, is mere conjecture. There was a tendency for some of the Jaysee men to play the ball individually. Attempt is a good word, because the ball was repeatedly taken away from them before they got very far. Then, too, the Corsairs slipped up on their defense, and several clever plays went through their fingers like water. A second game was played, which resulted in a tie. It was the biggest see-saw of the season; each team would make a shot to even the score. Then when the referee announced that the next baske...

Lodge Show Acclaimed By First Nighters [Newspaper Article] — Corsair — 26 November 1929
Lodge Show Acclaimed By First Nighters The premiere of the current De Molav musical comedy, "You're Next," was presented Friday night at the Miles auditorium amid a wildly enthusiastic Vrowd of first-nighters. From the opening prologue between Chick Rutan and Ted Gross to the finale the production was a steady parade of catchy tunes, clever dancing, snappy lines and gorgeous costumes not to mention the antics of Harry Kreber, who "stole" the show as the comedian. Some of the melodies, all of which were original and written for this comedy by Mr. Denni, made instantaneous hits with the audience. Among these were, "It's the Punch That Counts," "The Rest Is Easy," "High Up on a Hill," and "You're 0. K. with Me, Old Dear, If I'm K. O. with You." The performance possessed a verge and snap which kept the audience in a state of perpetual enjoyment. There were none of the usual "draggy" spots so often found in an amateur production. The acting was splendidly performed by a group of professi...
