Clogging Is Popular J. C. Woman's Sport [Newspaper Article] — Corsair — 25 March 1931
Clogging Is Popular J. C. Woman's Sport Clogging has been one of the most popular outside activities of the past season. This group met every Thursday during the x period. They learned three routines —two waltz clogs and one eccentric dance. Various members of the group were chosen to dance at several occasions, the most popular being the Misses Mildred McCance and Frances Hudson, who danced at two of the Jaysee affairs. Miss Norma June Lenz directed this group for the past year, and with the capab.e assistance of Thelma Fletcher, the manager of clogging, aroused the interest of more women, who attend seventy-five percent of the time, than in any other,, spo.'t. The University of North Dakota is planning a hall of fame for prominent students, on its campus. Eligible members include Phi Beta Kappas who make a va/sity sport letter. A manila folder containing important zoology papers was lost in the chemistry room recently by Manon Daley. Miss Daley would appreciate the return of the f...

WHO'S NEXT? [Newspaper Article] — Corsair — 25 March 1931
WHO'S NEXT? By CHRISTOPHER SANDSTONE Well, children, mid-terms are over, and all the deserving students of this thriving institution have received the expected or unexpected private communications from each conscientious member of the faculty. Since our respective fates in regards to study'are settled, we search around for an outstanding member of the student body. A pretty girl reminds us of Ray Hile—not that Ray reminds us of a pretty girl —but the fact remains that there has been a recent rumor to the effect of our Ray frequenting the "Follies." We hate to see any of our own special friends go wrong, but every child to his wild oats, and, if gazing at a number of innocent, beautiful dancers at the theater mentioned is the full extent of the wild oats, we forgive him, and offer a silent prayer. There seem to be some people in this school that are impervious to suggestion. If our memory serves us correctly, there have been definite clear statements as to the typewriters in the conf...

TARGET PRACTICE [Newspaper Article] — Corsair — 25 March 1931
TARGET PRACTICE By Gus Vlgnolle If it were around Christmas time now, we know what Coach Floyd Mishler would sincerely ask from dear old Saint Nick. He would ask for two (oY maybe three) good pitchers for his present baseball nine. That he is sadly in need of a larger and better hurling staff is evidenced by the way some of the recent tiffs have turned put. "I could very well have use for two or three men who were gifted with the ability of being able to toss a hard ball squarely over a plate (mostly strikes) for nine innings," chirped the jovial Mr. Mishler yesterday, when asked what the trouble seemed to be. Santa Monica Jaysee has a few good men now who can hurl o. k., so it seems, only for so long (and that "so long" doesn't happen to be near the nine-inning mark). They'll probably develop later, at least we hope so, but at the present they can's seem to stand the gaff. The mark which Scotty Sterling possesses 'round one of his lamps is not a birthmark, as some think, Sir Scotty...

All track men are expected to be at the San Bernardino Junior College field house at 10:00 a. m.

NINE TACKLES TECH. VARSITY SATURDAY California Tech's baseball nine will furnish the opposition for the Santa Monica Junior College horsehide aggregation next Satarday, when the two teams tangle in a practice affair on the Clover field diamond. "Batter up" will be called at 11:00 a. m. After losing to the Ventura J. C. DriUers last week, Mentor Mishler's-pelota-tossers are just rarin' to go. Practically nothing is known of the Tech men, but a good snappy game is anticipated. Lately the Corsair hurlers have not seemed to be able to go the route of nine innings. Always off to a good start, the Buc twirlers have been blowing up around the fifth or sixth frames. The probable S. M. J. C. starting lineup is as follows: Don Gaston, pitcher; Chuck Bailey, catcher; Lloyd Hurst, first base; Bill Athey, second base; Wally Hickman, short stop; Captain Duane Stevenson, third baseman, and Nutting, Emanuelli and Grant, left, center and right fielders, respectively. The divot-diggers travel to San ...
Ventura Baseballers Triumph Over Bucs [Newspaper Article] — Corsair — 25 March 1931
Ventura Baseballers Triumph Over Bucs After four innings had passed it seemed that the game with Ventura Jaysee would ultimately turn out to be a duel. But, la and behold, it was far from that; Ventura J. C. scoring 12 runs, while the Santa Monica Junior College horsehiders tailed 3 times across the rubber. Score in Fifth Coach Mishler's diamond "aggregation met the Ventura Drillers last Saturday at the Ventura field. In a previous game the Venturans easily won, 13 to 8, and the Corsairs were aching for a win in order to even matters up. Their hopes to eke out revenge were utterly thwarted good and heavy in the fifth, sixth, seventh and eighth innings when the Drillers scored 2, 3, 6 and one run, respectively. Pitcher Falters In the fifth, signs of faltering on the part of pitcher Don Gaston were noticeable, and there went the old ball game. Ted Small relieved Gaston, but the hitting splurge could not be checked. Up to the fifth session the Ventura boys had not yet got one hit, but ...

Copies of the play will not be available until that date, as plot secrecy is desired. It is planned that rehearsals will ...

Field Trip Enjoyed By Botany Classes [Newspaper Article] — Corsair — 8 April 1931
Field Trip Enjoyed By Botany Classes The old adage, "Join the Navy and see the world," is being changed in S. M. J. C. to "Join the botany class and see California." On Tuesday, March 24, the class under the leadership of Mr. H. L. Bauer took their second extensive trip for this semester. In five cars of various makes and vintages the botanists first went to El Segundo and made a careful examination of the vegetation on the sand dunes there. Later, they journeyed north along the coast and spent the afternoon studying plant communities in Topanga Canyon. The chief purpose of the trip was to study types of vegetation and the physical factors that control the distribution of plants. Lunch was eaten at the cabin of Miss Louise Bordon, located in a beautiful spot (Continued on Page Three) (Continued from Page One) on the old Topanga road. While engaged in this pleasant activity it looked as though the trip might be brought to a sudden close. A forest ranger and a couple of deputy sheriff...
