OPERA MATINEE 2 P.M. TODAY CLASSES CLOSED; JAYSEE STUDENTS ACCOMMODATED Gaiety and Color to be Keynote of Victor Herbert Opera Victor Herbert's tuneful opera, "The Fortune Teller," opens this afternoon at two o'clock sharp. Dr. Bush has announced that all sixth and seventh hour classes will be closed, so that there will be nothing to hinder Jaysee attendance. This is the second operatic venture that Santa Monica Junior College and . High School have collaborated in. Gaiety and color.will be the keynote throughout, in. keeping with the brilliant bypsy music of Victor. Herbert.

Musette, Irma's double, and Feodor, her twin brother, serve to thicken the plot and add to the difficulties of Fresco, the dancing master, who enlists himself as purveyor to th...

"Get Your Man" Is Most Popular Booth [Newspaper Article] — Corsair — 25 March 1931
"Get Your Man" Is Most Popular Booth About 150 women came away from the W. A. A. Circus last Friday night satisfied that the affair had been one of the most successful that the J. C. has ever had. So well received was the event that it has been planned to make it an annual occurrence. The gymnasium was arranged to represent a tent; with the side-shows along the sides, and the bleachers at one end. Adele Winn was master of ceremonies, and wore the traditional riding clothes and sillc hat. Shirley Martin as an old-fashioned girl won the prize for the prettiest costume, and Helen Stelzriede carried off the honors for the funniest apparel. Incidentally, Miss Stelzriede's high-diving act was the feature t&gt;f the evening. With her usual dare-devil spirit, "Pat" plunged from the balcony into a tub filled with about three inches of water, while the spectators gazed wide-eyed, fearing —or hoping — that she would be dashed to pieces on the rocks below. Aside from this deathdefying a...

Commission Inspects Cap and Gown Outfit [Newspaper Article] — Corsair — 25 March 1931
Commission Inspects Cap and Gown Outfit At a recent meeting of the Student Body Commission and the club presidents, Dr. Bush presented for inspection the cap and gown that will be worn by the graduating class. Much laughter resulted from viewing the cloak models, Margaret Johnson and Howard Andrews, while they modeled the costume. The outfit consists of the regular black Bachelor's cap and gown, the only difference being that there is a gray tassel on the cap, and a gray stole is worn with the gown. To add color, and lend more distinction, the fringe of the stole is orange and gray. And now, can you not visualize the gorgeous spectacle that will be presented when the first class graduates from Santa Monica Junior College?

Loss of Study Hall Threatened! [Newspaper Article] — Corsair — 25 March 1931
Loss of Study Hall Threatened! The library situation is truly grave. We have until this Friday to straighten matters out. If we are not successful in our self-governmental undertaking we are to be ejected, as a complete group, from the privilege of using the library as an abode of study. We are having a tough enough time as it is, to do our studying, without being deprived of a place to do it. But, students, in all seriousness, it is only through the efforts of the executive board that we are on probation until Friday. To say that we have failed in our efforts of self-government makes us feel rather indignant, but not to be able to correct the situation is really pathetic. We can correct it, and we must. Cinch notices just came out, and many of us have to bear down and crack the books in order to stay in school. Don't let's loose our only place of between-class study. An hourly conversation is an easy thing to keep up, but how distasteful it is to someone who is trying to cram a lit...
Campuses Here And There [Newspaper Article] — Corsair — 25 March 1931
Campuses Here And There The University of Minnesota claims the record for using (or losing) the most football*. More than one hundred-fifty footballs were used last grid season. De Pau University recently devised a new way to raise money for the maintenance of its band. Twenty automatic candy-vending machines have been placed in various college buildings. A special telephone system has been installed between the men's and women's dormitory buildings at Antioch College, in hope of promoting better and increased social contacts. • First violation of campus traffic regulations at the University of Kansas results in a warning tag on the offender's car; second offense carries a $1 fine; third offense costs 32; fourth 35, and after that action is taken by the Men's Student Council. Love, dumbness and faculty intelligence are the reasons for freshmen flunking out of school, according to one of the deans at the University of Nebraska. The University of -North Dakota is planning a hall of fa...
Barks From The Balcony [Newspaper Article] — Corsair — 25 March 1931
Barks From The Balcony By ART REDDEN Now that this fine weather is here, we expect sunburned shoulders to be the prevailing fashion. And with them, the great indoor sport will be back-slapping. Here's to a raw and blistered back. We understand that foodstuffs are cheaper by far now than they have been for years, and yet there is not let-down in the prices of the restaurants. The forty-cent lunch and the sixty-five cent dinner are still in vogue. A good idea would be to buy a can of beans and sit outside a cafe and eat them. A boycott of this kind would soon accomplish a lot. What we mean is a lot of work for the doctor. Years ago Vice-President Marshall said that what this country needed was a good five-cent cigar. We agree with him; the country still needs one, even though the crusade against spitting is on. The Nautical Club is sending an invitation to Gar Wood to become a member in that organization. Now that he has a decent boat, they have seen fit to allow him to join. Anyone e...
Successful Season in View [Newspaper Article] — Corsair — 25 March 1931
Successful Season in View From all indications Santa Monica Junior College has every reason to look forward to a successful swimming season. Through the efforts of Coach Osterholt and the Associated Student Body Commission, the men going out for this sport will not be put to the expense that they have previously. The commission this year finds itself with sufficient funds to take care of pool, towel and team-suit expenses, which are not by any means inccmsiderable items; a rather opulent situation when last year's financial condition is reviewed. W|th this arrangement in effect many prospects otherwise eliminated will no doubt be able to go out for this sport, thus making a full team possible, leaving the little matter of eligibility cards as the only fly-in-the-ointment or death's-head-at-the-banquet as it were. There is no time like the present to buy the J. C. Corsair sticker. The stickers can be purchased from Miss Young with that "two bits." The first baseball team is preparing...
The Makeup Box [Newspaper Article] — Corsair — 25 March 1931
The Makeup Box By LARRY MAGEE THE OPERA Seeing this column is devoted to the drama, something should be said about our forthcoming opera, "The Fortune Teller." Without a doubt it will be the biggest production ever attempted in this institution. When one figures that a great many of the leads are carried by Junior College students, the success of the production is assured. By all means don't miss it! PASADENA The spring program of the Pasadena Theater Guild was announced yesterday by Gilmore Brown, director, and lovers of the stage will be delighted to know that "Death Takes a Holiday" will be among the productions. That weird, imaginative fantasy should be among the outstanding plays of the year for guild productions. The dates set are from April 30 to May 9. Other plays of this group are: "No More Frontier," "The Perfect Alibi," "The Watched Pot," and "Green Fire." "MARCO MILLIONS" Student dramatists of the University of California at Los Angeles, attempting what no other college ...
LETTER TO "SANDY" [Newspaper Article] — Corsair — 25 March 1931
LETTER TO "SANDY" My Pal Chris In your column in the Samojac I don't believe that you have been "blasting" the right people. It is my opinion that you join the Nautical Club, because you would make a good Mate on a Ferry Boat. Whether you are "under bare poles" or "three sheets to the wind" when you write these articles, I still remain a reader of your column. Yours till we pipe the Mate, FRITZ.
