The Need For School Songs [Newspaper Article] — Corsair — 18 March 1931
The Need For School Songs 'T have a little studied physics; but pow, I'm all for music—as Plato holds your music and so does wise Pythagoras, I take it is your true rapture," so wrote the famous Ben Jonson long ago. Today this is none the less true, for music is engrossing the attention of people throughout the*world. For example, student life in hundreds of universities and colleges is indissolubly linked with the raptures of music, for students' songs and hymns lend that congenial and social influence so necessary in academic life. Now, here in our Junior College in Santa Monica we still bewail the fact that students' songs and hymns are entirely lacking, and consequently the question still confronts us, when will this period of songless 1 college life come to an end? —M. F.

This same tradition has long been adopted in the Santa Monica High School,_whose campus we have come to share; out of courtesy to them alone, even if no national pride in the flag were felt, should we adopt this j same routine of standing at attention at the sound of the cannop, facing the as it is raised to the top of the pole. Dr. Bush has requested that we adopt this tradition as the other colleges and universities have done, as a sign of respect to the national emblem, the only royalty we know.
Barks From The Balcony [Newspaper Article] — Corsair — 18 March 1931
Barks From The Balcony BV ART REDDEN If anyone wants anything within reason, just see Dr. Bush about it. If he can't get things for the J. C. we don't know anyone else who can. Kis latest gift to the College is the new system of classes, and don't think we aren't justly proud of the achievement. The first junior college in Southern California to the system inaugurated, Santa Monica is surely lucky. Shrill sqeals and laughs echoed throughout the campus last Friday evening. Any one passing the girls' gymnasium would have thought a mouse had been turned loose among the assembled women. It wasn't. Although no man is supposed to have been allowed admittance, reports verify the fact that a good time was had by all. Fortune . telling, ball throwing, popcorn stands, peanut booths, punch bowls, etc., etc., were numerous, and it is also reported that the nickles flowed freely into the coffers of the women's organization. The Big "C" is over. And now the College is to have a "Smoke House." A b...
Ring Lardner Comedy Follows Richelieu At Pasadena Playhouse [Newspaper Article] — Corsair — 18 March 1931
Ring Lardner Comedy Follows Richelieu At Pasadena Playhouse "June Moon," the extremely funny comedy by Ring Lardner and George S. Kaufman, is the next production scheduled for the Pasadena Community Playhouse, to be presented from March 19 to 28, it was announced by Gilmor Brown. "June Moon," written in the popular and characteristic comedy vein of Ring Lardner, and enhanced by the dramatic skill and additional humor of George S. Kaufman, depicts the adventures of the small-town boy in the intricate and rediculous life of Tin Pan Alley. Lardner is termed by many eminent writers of the theater and the drama as one of the outstanding satirical writers of America. His ear for the native vernacular and his unrepressed railery characterizes his books and stftries, but are said to be most effective when they come across the footlights from the characters whom he gently lampoons. An artistic production of the comedy is planned by Gilmor Brown and a cast of experienced players will interpre...

ALPHAS BEHIND IN SPIN DRIFT SALE [Newspaper Article] — Corsair — 18 March 1931
ALPHAS BEHIND IN SPIN DRIFT SALE The sales campaign for the Spin Drift is something like a slow rain. Drop by drop the downpour is starting. To date the classes stand as follows: the Alphas have sixteen and four-tenths percent, the Betas have fifty percent, the Gammas have thirty-six and twotenths percent, che Deltas sixty-five percent, and the faculty have eighty-four and two-tenths percent. As is befitting a class in its tender infancy we are allowing the Alphas to head the list with 16.4 percent. While the Betas with 50 percent and the Gammas with 36.2 percent are just where we expected them to be, in the middle, the faculty and the mighty Deltas, with 82.2 percent and 65 percent respectively, are showing their supreme intelligence by investing heavily in Spin Drift stock.

Jaysee Shots Noted At Westwood Village [Newspaper Article] — Corsair — 18 March 1931
Jaysee Shots Noted At Westwood Village "Eddie's," in Westwood Village (not an adv.) seems to be quite a hangout for local "shots." Among others we have noticed the blushing red-head Frank Michel, "Little Caesar" Donatelli, "Phi Beta" Ray Hile holding down a booth for hours, playing checkers while guzzling a malt. Yes, and we've even seen Buddy Bergeron drowning his sorrow with drink, bemoaning the loss of his amour who has left school.
The Makeup Box [Newspaper Article] — Corsair — 18 March 1931
The Makeup Box By LARRY MAGF.E "TOPAZ' Lights, colors, beautiful women beautifully dressed, and dull men, were the incidents around the reopening of the Belasco Theater last night with that French comedy farce, "Topaz." Alan Mowbray, the leading man, is cutting quite a figure n Hollywood lately. 'Some of his latest successes are "Candlelight" and "The Apple Cart." Now word is rumored around that he will be seen soon on the screen as George Washington in George Arliss' "Alexandra Hamilton." The play deals with Mowbray as a timid French schoolmaster who in an act becomes a suave man of the world. While there is no great depth to the play, nevertheless it is highly amusing and affords many a laugh. Mary Duncan, of the "Shanghai Gesture," plays opposite Mr. Mowbray. "SIT TIGHT" Those two ministers of mirth, Winnie Lightner and Joe E. Brown, are back again. This time they are rocking Hollywood with their antics in a health factory. Don George, wrestling champion, may also be seen in acti...
ALAN FREEMAN TO INSTRUCT CHORINES [Newspaper Article] — Corsair — 18 March 1931
ALAN FREEMAN TO INSTRUCT CHORINES Vivacious gypsies, dainty ballet girls, and petit cadets add gaiety to the " Fortune Teller" with their clever dances. The ballet girls, who are being directed by Miss Mary Carroll, are students at the dancing school where Fresco, played by Allen Freeman, is their instructor. In their old-style all-white dresses with colored corsages and quaint hair-dresses these girls present a lovely picture as they gracefully execute their steps. With a gay whirl of their circular skirts and tinkling of tambourines, the carefree gypsies dance their numbers, to the great delight of those who gather to watch them. Each costume is individual, though all have the full circular skirts which add to the sparkle and life of the gypsy dances. Their chief, Boris, played by Howard Andrews, is said to have the most eccentric costume of any of the leads. To the rat-a-tat-tat of the drums the drummers with their tap dance and the cadets with a military drill enliven the scene ...

OSTERHOLT'S CINDER MEN DOWN RIVERSIDE [Newspaper Article] — Corsair — 18 March 1931
OSTERHOLT'S CINDER MEN DOWN RIVERSIDE Santa Monica Jay see Trackmen Show Class in 71-to-59 Victory Over Tigers White like the lightning. .Yes, that's exactly what it was at Riverside J. C. last Saturday—lightning. And it was chiefly two lightning Whites, Stan and Bill (not brothers), that were very instrumental in the Corsairs' taming of the Riverside Tigers, said taming being to a 71-59 rhythm. Coach Bill Osterholt's cinder path artists looked hot, taking nine first places, while the Bengals breezed in first| six times. However, it became very well known that the Corsairs were weak in the field events. The fact that Frank Watson's first in the pole vault was the only top spot in the six events gives considerable impetus to that statement. Show Up Well After losing to Chaffey and the U. C. L. A. Frosh, the Bucs finally broke into the win column, and their victory over the Bengals was a very impressive on?. Other Santa Monica spikemen scintillated as well as Stan and Bill White. Capt...
TARGET PRACTICE [Newspaper Article] — Corsair — 18 March 1931
TARGET PRACTICE By Gus Vignolle 'Tis said our gallant cavaliers of the cinder path have not been getting just enough space regularly on this page. We'll admit it's track season right now; but, on the other hand, how 'bout baseball, golf, tennis and a bit of swimming? Anyway, in an effort to conform with the earnest desires of those who wish to see their names in print, we're going to discuss spike piffle, so here goes: Nine first places, eight second spots, three thirds, and a tie for second featured the 71-to-59 Corsair track triumph over Riverside J. C. last Saturday. Not a bad day, at all. There are two men on the team answering to the monicker of White —Stan the sprinter, and Bill the hurdler. They are related about as much as the phantom of the opera and the hunchback of Notre Dame. Both competed Saturday, Stan winning the century and taking a third in the furlong, while Bill captured both of the barrier events. Neither one of them scored 16 points, as some have been led to bel...

S. M. J. C. Divot Men Lose While Gordon Ecker won his golf match, four other Corsair divoteers dropped theirs, and thus was accounted Santa Monica Jaysee's 4-to-l downfall at the hands of the Glendale J. C. clubwielders last Saturday at the Santa Mon- ica municipal course. Having had little tournament experience, the Corsairs were outclassed by a better outfit.

Ventura J. C. Nine Wins from Corsairs [Newspaper Article] — Corsair — 18 March 1931
Ventura J. C. Nine Wins from Corsairs After twirling very good ball during the early part of the game, Don Gaston, S. M. J. C. hurler, faltered somewhat in the sixth inning and was hit for four runs. That best explains the Corsairs' 13-to-8 defeat at the hands of the Ventura Jaysee last Saturday at the Clover Field diamond. Gaston's pitching was quite effective previous to the sixth frame, the Bucs leading, 8 to 3. Four runs in the sixth, five in the eighth, and one for good measure in the ninth, and the Drillers had amassed a sum of thirteen jaunts across the plate. Eric Moore and Clyde Grant, who hurled after Gaston's removal, were utterly helpless against the Ventura batting onslaught. Captain Stevenson, third-sacker, and Emmanuelli, center-fielder, sparkled for the Corsairs, while Taylor, hurler, was the outstanding visiting ace. Stevenson did the best clouting for the losers, belting out three bingoes out of five times up. RUNS HITS ERRORS Santa Monica 8 7 4 Ventura 13 17 3 Bat...
