Spin Drift Cover Now Decided On; Percentages Same [Newspaper Article] — Corsair — 8 April 1931
Spin Drift Cover Now Decided On; Percentages Same The cover for the "Spin Drift" has at last been decided upon. A more beautiful design and a cover of better material was secured than was expected. The marvelous colors and the texture of the cover for the yearbook, although withheld in order that a grand and glorious surprise may be enjoyed by all, are such that they will be a credit to and truly representative of such a Junior College as ours is. It is hoped that with the approach of the time for the appearance of this book, which will be sometime in May, that there will be such a rush for sale receipts that the circulation department will have to hire some assistants to care for the money of eager subscribers. Although no percentages have been raised by class organizations over Easter, the faculty got to work and are now 100 percent subscribers for the "Spin Drift." Three rails and a hip-hip-hooray for the faculty. Right this way, folks; step right up and buy a Spin Drift ;only a ...

LITERARY [Newspaper Article] — Corsair — 8 April 1931
LITERARY "HOT COUNTRIES" By Alec Waugh In love, but with an Island! This romantic story of wanderings in the tropics, of romancing in Tahiti, "Love's country," and in dozens of other dreamy isles and cities, is Alec Waugh in sparkling, human mood. He does love islands. He must wander in the tropics. His descriptions and stories are not only written with great charm, as he tells the Tahitian Idylls of Ray Girling and beautiful. Pepirl or wanders among the jungles of Haiti, he interprets the psychology of these peoples and places —of Penang, of Ceylon, of Siam, of Martinique, of Trinidad —of that East where he says, " Woman is a side-show." Mr. Waugh writes here with the appeal of the novelist and with the eye of the real wanderer in far places. Miss Mary Louise Carries and Dr. William Hollister obtianed their dark complexions by frequent visits to the beach this past week.
Students Make Trip To Mineral Fields For Rocks [Newspaper Article] — Corsair — 8 April 1931
Students Make Trip To Mineral Fields For Rocks Taking a geology trip over Southern California's mineral fields, Frank Michel, Frank Watson, Raymond Hile and Art Redden spent several days of the vacation period seeking specimens for the college laboratory. The trip covered such famous places as Randsburg, Johannesburg, Atolia, Trona, Ballarat, Lone Pine and Independence. Free milling samples of gold and silver were collected, and also tungsten in the native ore and also in free quantities. Old diggings were visited, and the trip was also enlivened by trips through the still running plants. At Lone Pine and Independence the group visited the oldest formation in the United States. This formation consists of a low lying group of hills, known as the Alabama Mountains. The whole group has been practically destroyed by erosion, and geologists claim it dates back to the pre-Cainbrian era. Near Mojave, Hile and Redden filed a claim on some mineral deposits which assay about twelve ounces of ...
WHO'S NEXT? [Newspaper Article] — Corsair — 8 April 1931
WHO'S NEXT? There's Buddie Henn—sarcastic Buddie Henn. We can't seem to get much further. He's up for an office now and then, laughs occasionally, and upsets the equilibrium of the class. A laugh from Henn is as unexpected as a sneeze, and about as welcome. He doesn't laugh, he hoots. But alas, 'tis enough discourse on Mr. Henn, and his laugh. If you fail to recognize the laugh you'll know him by his dark hair and baby-blue sweater. And since we're on the subject of the opera and Spring, we should mention the hilarious ragged gypsy, our old pal Gil Rankin. What with Rachel in the opera, and our friend the Hemmion, he's quite the Don Juan of J. C., tra-la; so exceedingly charming to see, tra-la. (Someone ought to write a pome about it). Careful, Gil; we see by the paper today, that i ven the only free member of the faculty took the fatal step, and, if omniscient faculty dare, it must be in the air. With such unconscious verse we leave.
Noted Author Writes Little [Newspaper Article] — Corsair — 8 April 1931
Noted Author Writes Little 44 Few good novels are produced by writers under the age of forty," Professor John Erskine, author and president of the Julliard Music Foundation in New York, said in an interview recently. " I don't want to discourage young writers, but too often they are sucked dry by their first success. Then they go into retreat in a closet with books and we hear no more of them." In writing a novel, Erskine rarely writes more than an hour a day. Usually he puts down only 300 words, which is about a page of print, he said.

Snap Out [Newspaper Article] — Corsair — 8 April 1931
Snap Out Five Sports In Progress atS. M. J. C.; Students Urged To Turn Out And Support The Athletic Teams. This sportorial is in the form of an urge—urging students here at Santa Monica Junior College to support the athletic teams of this institution. "Of this institution" was a necessary part of the aforementioned statement, and it may sound dumb, because many here indulge in supporting other athletic participants of other institutions. Start at Home You know, so they say, that the best place to start is at home; so how about it! This question of supporting the athletic teams is something which students should think over a bit. Ponder. Considered you've thought about it a bit, we'll continue: "Why don't some of those guys out thar snap out of it?" queried the eminent Frank Finch, demon sports writer and columnist of the Santa Monica Outlook, recently, while discussing this shameful question with the writer. There should be plenty snappin' out of it around this neck of the woods now...

E. C. Sandmeyer And F. F. Martin Attend Council [Newspaper Article] — Corsair — 15 April 1931
E. C. Sandmeyer And F. F. Martin Attend Council Mr. Sandmeyer and Mr. Martin represented Santa Monica Saturday in San Francisco at a meeting of the California Council of Education. This council considered and discussed reports heard from committees on subjects for legislation. A revision of the tenure law was approved. A revision of the retirement law which would plan for a larger retirement pension and compulsory retirement was also considered. The measure which this council opposed is the one which would give the State power of publishing secondary school books as well as elementary. The danger in this lies in the fact that the companies which own the best text-books will not allow them to be published by states in this manner. This causes the use of old and out-of-date school books. If such a measure as this were to be passed by -the legislature, such junior colleges as this would be vitally affected. This council also made plans for the National Education Association meeting in ...
