Spindrift And Spendthrift [Newspaper Article] — Corsair — 15 April 1931
Spindrift And Spendthrift Spin drift is defined by the dictionaries as blown spray, or windblown foam. A spendthrift, on the other hand, means one who is excessively or wastefully lavish of money. Spindrift in the form of windblown spray refers to water or any other liquid dispersed in small particles, and the term as such is lavishly used by poets and novelists, and therefore these people may be referred to as spendthrifts in this connection. Who, for example, has not watched with wistful eyes the wind-blown spray on the crests of the mighty waves, or who has not observed that our seashores are silvered with its abundance? Again, there is very little doubt but that much of our human philosophy is nothing more or less than spindrift, wind-blown spray, or light ■clouds rapidly driven before the wind. What of it, however, if it makes us think, if it compels us to separate the spray from the more solid foundations of truth itself? Furthermore, no one is required to be a spendthrift in ...
Can George Do It? [Newspaper Article] — Corsair — 15 April 1931
Can George Do It? Is popular government worth while? This question is being asked again and again by bodies varying from national governors to people that have the government of their towns at heart. That a minority usually rules is recognized wherever popular rule is tried. One of the oddities of this arrangement lies in the rigidity with which the defaulting populace would hold the governors to the performance of their wishes. The agreement to "let George do it" in, no way seems to imply "as he wishes" in the popular mind, and loud is the shout when "George" trods on their toes, and equally great is the howl when they are brought to book for that which has been avoided or neglected. Such a howl is about due from that majority who rely on the use of the library as a study hall, yet refuse to do their part in seeing that silence is maintained. The minority here as elsewhere rules the situation, yet it is the majority that will be penalized. Junior College assemblies have suffered du...
EXCHANGES [Newspaper Article] — Corsair — 15 April 1931
EXCHANGES Co-eds are more absent-minded than men students at Boston University, records of the lost-and-found department show. The University of Wisconsin has a weekly newsreel showing campus events. The pictures are shown at student body meetings. The University of Toronto recently conducted a "Perfect Male" contest, open only to co-ed opinion. Ballots were cast ranking the contestants on the counts of health, looks, sportsmanship, efficiency, charm and disposition. More than fifty scholarships and fellowships are being offered by the school of retailing at the New York University.
Editor Explores Arizona During Easter Vacation [Newspaper Article] — Corsair — 15 April 1931
Editor Explores Arizona During Easter Vacation John Reynolds, editor of the Samojac, spent his Easter vacation traveling over Arizona seeing all the interesting and important places in the state. Mr. Reynolds went over the new Government irrigation project in the Casa Grande Valley, water for which is backed up by the Coolidge Dam, an interesting sight. The Roosevelt Dam was visited also. The "earliest American apartment houses," the cliff-dwellings, near Flagstaff, proved of interest to him. The Apache Trail, the volcanic regions of the San Francisco Mountains, and the Grand Canyon were seen. Also the Black and the Rainbow petrified forests. The trip was one of the pleasantest Mr. Reynolds said, except at the end it was marred by the untoward incident of his being attacked by ptomaine poisoning.
FROM EARLY MORN TILL EVENING [Newspaper Article] — Corsair — 15 April 1931
FROM EARLY MORN TILL EVENING A Clock clangs out its strident ring, One eye we open, "God bless that thing!" A dainty yawn, just a minute more — Five minutes later —a gentle snore. Mother enters. "Get up! You'll be late! "Goodness, child, it's almost eight!" We scramble wildly, "Ten minutes more?" One mad dash—a loudly slammed door. We arrive at school, then two flights of stairs. Isn't it a wonder we have any brown hairs? The professor smiles as he starts his work, (That ain't no smile, that's a sneery smirk). His voice is just loud enough to keep Us from indulging in well-earned sleep. Then we settle down —armed for a slam, And are charmed to learn of another exam. But the prof just smiles and lectures along. Knowing full well that he's never wrong. At last, the bell. It's time to pass, Yes, my dears, to another class. And this from eight to three thirty-five, How do we students stav alive? The answer is: we dont. You see, We're only students till half past three. (Temporary condit...
CAMPUS CHUCKLES [Newspaper Article] — Corsair — 15 April 1931
CAMPUS CHUCKLES When I was a baby my mother paid a nurse to wheel me around, and I've been pushed for money ever since. Mrs. Pudge: You post office people are getting more careless every day! That letter you delivered yesterday was from my husband. He's on a business trip to Boston, and you postmarked the letter Atlantic City. Wife (trying on new hats): Do you like this one turned down, dear? Husband: How much is it? Wife: Eleven dollars. Hubby: Yes, turn it down. The height of optimism: Lighting a match before asking a friend for a cigarette. Then there was the absent-minded professor who gave his nails an examination and cut his classes. "You know, I like variety; it's the spice of life." " Look me over, kid; my name is Heinz." She (rising from the card table, followed by an admirer): Oh, Mother, I've won the booby! Mother (smiling): How nice; come here and let me kiss you both. "Is he a painless dentist? 1 ' "No, I bit his finger and he yelled just like any other dent'st." Summer...
Suggestions for Snappy Classroom Conduction [Newspaper Article] — Corsair — 15 April 1931
Suggestions for Snappy Classroom Conduction Sometimes we find fault with the professors as being too "crabby," but suppose they went at it in the manner of some football coaches? The classroom dialogue might sound something like this: "What's the matter with you hoboes? I want some pep in the recitation this morning. You're not at any pink tea. All you've done this year is stall around and I'm one guy who won't stand for it, see? Yeah, I mean you Sterling, and you Thomas. "There's one thing I don't like about you, Donatelli, and that's that you're too darn cocky. Can you recite the lines I assigned for today? No? That's about the class of work you've been doing all this term. "Hey, you dizzy blonde in the front row, can you come out of the coma, and give it? Not bad, you're showing better form, blondie. Wake up, Hile, and tell me where Milton was born. Where? Why, you halfwit dumb cluck, scram to the showers. Don't stand there with that blank look on your face. Get going! "I don't k...
The Makeup Box [Newspaper Article] — Corsair — 15 April 1931
The Makeup Box "WHISPERING FRIENDS" Only George M. Cohan could write a play like this and make it a success. It is truly different, having two instead of the customary three or four acts, and outside of a butler and maid there are only four people who figure in the plot. It is a comedy of marital devotion in which love, friendship, jealousy and hate are juggled together with the result of a well finished production. Helen Bolton carries her role the best of the company, with Tom Moore running a close second. Betty Love tries too hard to be a vamp, and Russel Fillmore is ■not so hot. But the play, all in all, is amusing and affords many a laugh. "QUEER PEOPLE" At last! Here is a chance for some of our students to make good. Hollywood wants actors for its new picture, "Queer People," so I suggest, for all you boys who look a little too lovingly at our athletes, to give the director a break and go up and see him. We're not mentioning names, but we don't mean you, Hickman. "FIFTY MILLIO...
Famous Trio Presented [Newspaper Article] — Corsair — 15 April 1931
Famous Trio Presented Three Junior College students participated in a program of the Methodist Men's Club of Santa Monica last Friday. Gilman Rankin sang two solos, and Alice Lloyd, assisted at the piano by Elizabeth Morrow, whistled two songs. Mr. Wallbank was toastmaster and chairman for the evening, and he secured as the speaker Professor Baxter of U. S. C., who spoke on "The Man in the Crowd." Temple University draws the prize for concentrating the most potential pain in the smallest possible area. It has one room in the dental school with seventyfive dentists' chairs.
Oregon University Goes To Sea For Summer Session [Newspaper Article] — Corsair — 15 April 1931

WHO'S NEXT? [Newspaper Article] — Corsair — 15 April 1931
WHO'S NEXT? Many notables have been mentioned, but, alas, we have missed Harry Massey. Dear little Harry, his glasses perched upon his nose, his intellectual brow wrinkled in thought, as he pores over numerous Spin Drift accounts. By the way, have you bought yours yet? At any rate, Harry is efficient, which is a great deal more than can be said of some. Not that we mean to be nasty, but if your conscience hurts in any way, you are a guilty party, and the Spin Drift must go to press. Which is a little off the subject of Harry, but not much. He's one boy in this school that appears to really work, whether it be the old polishing tendencies reappearing or not. But he's a nice boy, and professors must have help; besides we like him. And a colorful boy enters our column, Hampton Worthy, the big boy. He chatters long discourses on varied and sundry historical topics, impressing the professor properly, then he flunks the ex. We can remember the days that he debated; the impressive thing ab...
Westwood Plant Will Be Visited By Science Club [Newspaper Article] — Corsair — 15 April 1931
Westwood Plant Will Be Visited By Science Club An unusual opportunity has been given the members of the Science Club of Santa Monica Junior College. The members of the club are invited to visit and inspect the laborities of Dr. Bennett M. Allen at the University of California at Los Angeles. Thursday, April 23, at four o'clock in the afternoon will be the time and date. Dr. Allen has kindly consented to conduct members of the club through the laboratories and to explain and exhibit all things of interest there. Since members of the club will have to depend upon each other for transportation to the University, Miss Murray, president of the Science Club, has issued a call to all those who have automobiles and are willing to take others with them. They are asked to notify her how many they are willing to accommodate. The Science Club will hold a short meeting at noon this Thursday to discuss monetary matters and program affairs.
Letter to the Editor: [Newspaper Article] — Corsair — 15 April 1931
Letter to the Editor: The importance of women's sports has not, as yet, been realized by the "powers that be" of the Junior College. The esteemed writer of the Makeup Box is only one of a group of "bavards" who insist that women and the activities in which they participate are non-essential. The aforementioned author, in a recent interview, stated that people "have long been aware of the fact that there is no importance in the subject." We thoroughly agree with the Barker from the Balcony that the Makeup Man knows not whereof he speaks. There has been a great deal of controversy concerning the idea of a school team —tennis, for instance, being a Santa Monica Junior College team and not a men's team only. It would seem that if a team were to represent the school, it should be composed of the best players, regardless of sex, provided, of course, that they are in good standing scholastically and otherwise.

SOCIETY [Newspaper Article] — Corsair — 15 April 1931
SOCIETY Muriel Leighton spent the week-end at Lake Elsinore. The swimming and boating were great, but, oh, the fish! Girls, here's your chance! Jim Moore won ten dollars last week! He put a onedollar bet on the horse Blue Moon, at the races in Baltimore, and won! Grace Reiach went to see Joe E. Brown in "Going Wild," which was playing at the Fox Stadium Theater. Lucille Hamilton went to a birthday party in Westwood, Sunday evening. Lillian Lindt went to the dance given by the Golden State Creamery Company last Saturday evening. Little Miss Elizabeth Hemmeon, our popular Alpha girl, spent her week-end at the home of Miss Florence Lowe Barnes. Miss Barnes is a noted aviatrix. Dick Brown and Jack Haine made a trip to Saddle Peak, Saturday, looking for fossil specimens. It seems that Teddy Gross and Fred Tsheppe should be named the "datebreakers." We warn you, girls! Beware! You're liable to get gypped the last minute. Alice Willers went to see "Das Lied Ist Aus," which is playing at th...
Trackers Win Final Dual Meet of Season; Citrus Beat by 88-43 Count [Newspaper Article] — Corsair — 15 April 1931
Trackers Win Final Dual Meet of Season; Citrus Beat by 88-43 Count In cyclonic fashion Coach Bill Osterholt's cinder path artists won their final dual conference meet of the season last Saturday when they demolished the runners of Citrus Junior College, 88 to 43. The meet, a spectacular affair, was held on the U. C. L. A. oval in Westwood. A stiff breeze prevailed, and it was this that aided some of the runners in making very good times. Heading this categoryis Carter, Citrus sprinter, who ran the century in the very good time of 9.9. Stan White, Corsair speedster, was going right along when he won the furlong in 22 seconds flat, which is excellent time; however, Mr. Zephyr helped a bit. Ralph Hromadka, S. M. hurdler, showed up exceptionally well in winning the 120yard high sticks and tying for first in the 220-yard low barriers with Bill White of Santa Monica. He was clocked in 15.2 in the highs, and ran the lows in 24.9. Running a brilliant race, Ed Villarreal, Corsair distance ma...
