Wot's Wot Wot of It By Gus V gnolle After last Saturday's impressive victory over the Long Beach J. C. Vikings, the Corsair pelota-tossers showed possibilities of later becoming a fairly good baseball nine. We shall see what we shall see! At the thirteenth annual Southern Pacific A. A. U. relay championships, staged at Long Beach last Saturday, two junior colleges of the Eastern division managed to snag a place. Citrus garnered a fourth in the one-mile relay (junior colleges). The quar-ter-mile relay saw Riverside make out in third place. Wonder why Santa Monica wasn't represented? It is said that different things please different kinds of people. This ought tq hold true here at Santa Monica Junior College —that is, talking about sports. One can't squawk about not having enough of a variety, because there are five different sports now in progress, and you should sail for one of the five, at least. Here's the lineup: track, baseball, golf, tennis and swimming. Duane "Steve" Stevenson...

WHO'S NEXT? [Newspaper Article] — Corsair — 18 March 1931
WHO'S NEXT? Pip! pip! Surprise! A word to the foolish, a warning to the wise. And since our balcony is in danger of being lost to us, we've decided to make a big noise about the noise-makers in our Hall of Study. And the runners-up for first place leave our small mind in a state of childlike bewilderment. It seems that — has made known by a conspicuous lack of study and an overabundance of loud laughter. We don't like to be nasty, but, if you still feel like high school, don't force yourself upon the College. We smile sweetly and pi:k on a real pest. Jack Burriston is not yet far enough j removed from kindergarten to realize that j (Continued on Page Three) (Continued from Page One) people with college minds sit upon college chairs —not library tables —-and indulge in the genteel art of study while in the Study Hall. Either that, or they don't force themselves upon the eyes and ears of students who occasionally feel the urge to pass the time away quietly, and in the same room. We're...

BOTANISTS ENJOY OVERNIGHT FIELD TRIP TO MOJAVE [Newspaper Article] — Corsair — 18 March 1931
BOTANISTS ENJOY OVERNIGHT FIELD TRIP TO MOJAVE In the early hours of last Saturday morning, a caravan headed by Mr. H. L. Bauer, started on one of the successful projects of the year —a botanical field trip to th regions of Bakersfield and the Mojave Desert. In sheep style, six cars of various descriptions wended their way behind Mr. Bauer, over the Ridge Route until they reached the sea of wild flowers at the foot of Grapevine Grade. Unbeknown to him, the party became the guests of Harry Chander, owner of a 300,000 acre ranch. There, members of the botany class gathered various species of plants which they proceeded to compress in telephone books, mail order house catalogs, etc., while the less brilliant zoologists who had nosed into the party, gathered lizards and snakes to help pass the time away. About sunset the troup reached Bakersfield, tired, hungry, and a trifle soiled. One geologist thought he had discovered the entrance to a coal mine when Charles Dinber, who had been rid...

BOOK REVIEW [Newspaper Article] — Corsair — 18 March 1931
BOOK REVIEW "SINCE THEN" By Sir Philip Gibbs "When will there be peace?" It seems a curious question. You will perhaps reply, "We have had peace since the treaty of Versailles in 1918." But in Europe today many peoples and their leaders are asking, "When will there be peace?" Now the author of "Now It Can Be Told" and "More That Must Be Told" sets down a gruesome story of pillage and violence, bloodshed and savagery that has resulted from the Treaty of Versailles. Here are the astounding facts that censorship has kept from us. What do you know of the millions of persons who perished in battle and outright slaughter? What do you know of the destinies of Greece, Germany, Austria, Hungary, Russia and Italy? Read this book of shocking, terrible, exciting stories, and then s-ay also, "When will there be peace?" IF YOU THINK If you think you are beaten," you are; If you think you dare not, you don't; If you want to win but think you can't, It's almost certain you won't. If you think you h...

Ruminants [Newspaper Article] — Corsair — 18 March 1931
Ruminants It has been proved that the adage, "You can't teach an old dog new tricks," is entirely without foundations, as men have been known to learn a trade rather late in life, and to make a success of it. Such being the case, it is about time for students in this college to abandon a few trick? acquired in high school, and at least try to act as college students should. It is a pity that in these halls of learning, where such opportunities for knowledge and advancement are offered, that there should be so many who belong to a certain species of ruminants more commonly called gum-chewers. So far these inveterate ruminants ha\;e let nothing dismay them, have weathered the storms of frigid glances and gentle rebukes showered upon them by instructors. We are not condemning glim-chewing as an occupation, but there is a time and place for everything, and college classrooms are by no means the place for gum-chewing. No one is able to do his best work if his attention is distracted from...
