A Daniel Come to Judgment [Newspaper Article] — Corsair — 22 April 1931
A Daniel Come to Judgment Simultaneously with the advent of the 1931 swimming season comes the age-old argument as to what constitutes decency, propriety and prudishness. The roll-down suit, which made its debut on the Pacific Coast as a fad two years ago, bids fair to become the mode, and rightly so. To date there is no law governing the design of bathing suits save that regarding decency. The interpretation of this law rests with the city government. It is somewhat difficult to see wherein a man's chest is any more indecent than a woman's back, or that there is any indecency in the exposition of either. The beneficial effects of the sun have been demonstrated from time to time; likewise it has also been demonstrated that there is no substitute. It must be patent, then, that as long as the general public has become cognizand of this fact, it will be served. Europe and South America have recognized this benefit, and the public demand, as has Hawaii and Australia. Is America only to ...
Insect Pests [Newspaper Article] — Corsair — 22 April 1931
Insect Pests Pests! Yes, we have them —even in the Junior College. It has been found that these human insects are much harder to exterminate than insects as we commonly think of them, and two of these weevils or aphids, or anything you choose to call them, are particularly prevalent around institutions of higher learning. There is the ever-present lame brain who pipes up in the middle of a lecture to ask some question entirely unrelated to the subject. It is this type of insect life that can be depended upon to wise-crack at the slightest opportunity, the one who is at the head of the class. When it comes to apple-polishing and the other extreme when exam results are announced. Then there is the louse who insists upon talking and laughing away the fleeting minutes in study hall. Little he —or she —cares whether others desire to make an honest effort to study. They are undismayed by threats, much less kindness, and it is due largely to their endeavors that we are in danger of losing ...
Campuses Here And There [Newspaper Article] — Corsair — 22 April 1931
Campuses Here And There A student of the University of Chicago threw a piece of pie at a girl because she would not kiss him after he bought forget-me-nots from her. The University of Minnesota is considering doing away with all required freshman English courses. Miss Marie Mengers, who was graduated from the University of Nebraska in 1928, has been awarded a French Government fellowship for study at the University of Toulouse. A life-saving course is being offered at the University of Virginia. At a meeting of the faculty heads of nine California colleges, it was decided that fraternities should stress the social side of college Ufe and not the academic. The plans are now finished for the women's campus at Claremont. The entire plans will cover four blocks whep finished. In a standing vote at a political meeting at the University of Washington, recently voted five hundred to two in favor of the repeal of the eighteenth amendment. When the new co-op store opens at the U. of South Da...
Barks From The Balcony [Newspaper Article] — Corsair — 22 April 1931
Barks From The Balcony By Art Redden The Mexican Exclusion Bill, which is before the legislature now, seems to be doing a lot of good even before it is voted on. The general exodus of Mexicans will leave openings for quite a few Americans to find work. At least a few college men should be able to find pick-and-shovel jobs this summer. Can you imagine the faculty and commission getting together at the instigation of the W. A. A. and having tea? Well, it did happen. It sounds suspiciously like an arbitration meeting, only we don't be'ieve there was anything to arbitrate. At last a group goes over the top 100 percent in the Spin Drift campaign. Well, if all the rest of the groups were working 100 percent they too would be on the same level as the faculty. Not trying to steal any of the sport department's stuff, but we would just like to say that the track team certainly looked good in its win over Citrus a week ago Saturday. For good performances, the meet took on all the aspects of a ...
The Makeup Box [Newspaper Article] — Corsair — 22 April 1931
The Makeup Box By LARRY MAGEE "EASY LIVING" With a negligible plot and a script written in a more or less stereotyped style of filmland, "Easy Living," by Madeline Blackmore, playing at the Theater Mart, is achieving much praise from Hollywood theater-goers. In this play, which is truly 1931 in character, unpaid furniture walks out, bread refuses to stay buttered, and, as a result, romance dies. For a play that is truly different and interesting because of it, I would advise anyone interested in the theater to see it. "MISBEHAVING LADIES" Absolutely terrible! The First National studios are surely turning out the bum pictures lately. Lila Lee, as the belle of Main Street who marries an Italian prince, who, by the way, deserts her, taking with him the community property, just doesn't seem to know what the score is. The play isn't worth anything, and the executing of it worth less. Oh, well. "THE FINGER POINTS" Not so bad, but we're awfully tired of underworld pictures, and besides, we...
S. M. J. C. Netters Meet Tiger Team Saturday [Newspaper Article] — Corsair — 22 April 1931
S. M. J. C. Netters Meet Tiger Team Saturday Victorious in their two conference meetings, Santa Monica Junior College's promising tennis team travels to Riverside J. C. Saturday morning, to meet the racquet-wielding Tigers. The Riversiders boast of a fairly good outfit, which should make the impending matches close ones. The Cor;air netters have been showing excellent form in their two previous wins, and, should they play their usual brand of tennis, a Buc victory will be registered. Some of the Santa Monica outstanding netmen are: Captain Everett Hartung, Jim Davis, Kennohan, Block, Doctolero, Aminerman, Anakin and Kelly. The pistol team of Ohio State University won its first match from Princeton'
Corsair Natators Lose to L. A. J. C.; Good Times Made [Newspaper Article] — Corsair — 22 April 1931
Corsair Natators Lose to L. A. J. C.; Good Times Made In a closely fought swimming meet between the Corsairs and the L. A. J. C. Cubs in the Los Angeles pool, last Thursday afternoon, the Santa Monica J. C. team took the short end of a 58-28 score. Remarkable times were made in all of the eight events, with Merriam and Deats of L. A., and Wall, Starr and McHenry of Santa Monica doing most of the scoring. The medley relay resulted in a tie between the two teams in the fast time of 48 seconds flat, each man swimming a back-stroke, breast-stroke and free-style, one length of the pool. The results of the meet were 4-man 220-yard relay—L. A. J. C. first with Wright, Coney, Merriam, Deats. Time —2 minutes 32.2 seconds. 50-yard breast stroke —McHenry (SM); Stinson (LA); Dodge (LA). Time —35.6. 50-yard dash —Wall (SM); Coney (LA); Wright (LA). Time —28.2 seconds. 440-yard swim—Deats (LA); Rednor (LA). Time—s:sl.s. 50-yard back-stroke —Merriam (LA); Hile (SM); Starr (SM). Time—3s.l. 100-yard...
WHO'S NEXT? [Newspaper Article] — Corsair — 22 April 1931
WHO'S NEXT? Well, soaks, the intellectual gets it in the neck this week. Lanky Everett Hartung, with the prominent chin and the artistically uncombed hair, barges into print —-much against his will, I wager. He plays pretty good tennis —or so 1 hear — and he didn't tell me. Once, in the dear, dead days not beyond recall, he developed quite a passion for demure little Gene Bender, but the affair seems to have gone the way of all affairs. At any rate, we did hear something about Everett intending to recite a piece—. We say nothing more, we just look wise, after the manner of all wise people. And drive on to dear little Joy Rutherford, bearing up so bravely under her sad blow. You have our many sympathies, Joy; but we dare not say more. And now, little children, Joy is athletic. And Mr. Lumsden, who objects to being called Johnnie, seems to think she's pretty swell. We don't object —not old Chris; Chris just reports these here goings on. An old nasty, that's what we are; but we do not ...
Woman Question Creates Furor in Citizenship Class [Newspaper Article] — Corsair — 22 April 1931
Woman Question Creates Furor in Citizenship Class At last the "dirt" is out, and a solution found for the insoluble. The following "analysis" was recently handed in to Mr. C. F-. Stickle as having direct bearing on the "woman problem," which his citizenship classes discussed last week: Qualitative Analysis of Woman 1. Element: Woman 2. Occurrence: Found wherever there is trace of man; seldom in free state; with exceptions—very few indeed —the combined state is preferred. 3. Physical: All sorts, colors and sizes. Usually in disguised condition. These conditions vary greatly, as experts are unable to detect flaws. Face covered with a film of composite material. Backs at nothing, and may freeze at any time. However, melts when properly treated. Very Bitter if left alone or not well used. 4. Chemical Properties: Very active, possesses great affinity for gold, silver, platinum and precious stones. Violent reaction when left alone. Great ability to absorb expensive foods at any time. Undi...
FACES [Newspaper Article] — Corsair — 22 April 1931
FACES Faces can hold a strange fascination, If one takes the time for some close observation. There's the face of a clock in the tower on high, The face of the watch on our wrist (which doth lie.) The face of the flower from over the wall, The face of Old Humpty (after his fall), The face in the mirror, returning your grin, The face of the lady with many a chin. Yet go where you may, do whoever you can, Is there any so funny as that of a man? —Zelda Gottlieb.
SOCIETY [Newspaper Article] — Corsair — 22 April 1931
SOCIETY Barbara Gardner went up to Cal. Tech., Friday afternoon, to view the exhibit. Ida Armstrong spent the week-end at Arrowhead, and did she have a good time! Inez O'Connor spent Sunday at a ranch in Topanga Canyon. Guess what! She caught the "cutest" bat! Ray Jacobsen fell off a horse, Sunday, and was injured, so that he is unable to attend J. C. for some time. We're in the Navy now! Hooray! Jack Haines made a tour of Southern California via the U. S. Navy Air Line. Elizabeth Maries, Florence Hutchins, Bill White and Howard Straw went to Mount Baldy over the week-end. Lillian Lindt went roller-skating Friday evening, at the Rollerdrome. She would not divulge how many times she fell. Grace Reiah went to Camp Baldy over the week-end. She said she had a great time playing tennis and going hiking. Margaret Darusmont attended a picnic held at Orange County Park last Sunday. Among the guests were Eugene Pallatt and Gary Cooper. Louis Knickerbocker saw "Dirigible," Saturday evening. H...
Hromadka Wins Hurdle Event in Annual Conference Meet With Bill White Third [Newspaper Article] — Corsair — 22 April 1931
Hromadka Wins Hurdle Event in Annual Conference Meet With Bill White Third Buc Hurdler Cops High Sticks in 15.3; Sweeney of Compton Noses Out White; Corsairs Rate Seventh Competing in the largest and fastest group of high hurdlers in Conference com" petition, Ralph Hromadka, Santa Monica J. C., won the event by two feet over S. Sweeney of Compton, in the fast time of 15.3 seconds. The finish proved to be far closer than anticipated, as the second-place winner was right on the heels of Hromadka, while Bill White, also of Santa Monica J. C., followed Sweeney by less than one foot to win third place. A' lot of credit is due these two determined Corsairs, as they were the only Santa Monica entrants to score in the Conference meet. The low hurdle race proved too fast for both Hromadka and White, both running the event in less than 25 seconds. Wendell Hammer, one-miler, and Ed Villarreal, two-miler, both of Santa Monica, showed up well in their events, but were unable to place high enough...
Corsair Golfers Lose [Newspaper Article] — Corsair — 22 April 1931
Corsair Golfers Lose Losing for the second time in their second conference tiff, Santa Monica Jaysee's golfing troop went down to defeat last Saturday at the hands of the Pomona J. C. club-wielders, 3 to 2. The matches were held on the Mountain Meadows course in the thriving city of Pomona. Weir Grace, Tom De Ghionno and Bergeron, first, third and fourth man, respectively, dropped their matches after some hard playing. Gordon Ecker, second man and the Bucs' most consistent winner so far this season, won his match, as did Ray Gregory.
Coach F. Mishler's Pelota Squad Wins Over Pomona Men [Newspaper Article] — Corsair — 22 April 1931
Coach F. Mishler's Pelota Squad Wins Over Pomona Men Avenging themselves of the San Bernardino 3-to-l defeat, Santa Monica Junior College's baseball men came back in great order last Friday, to pulverize the Pomona pelota-players, 16 to 1. The fray was held on the Pomona diamond. That the Corsairs were "in for the day" was shown when they hit Pitcher Wright of the Cossack institution for 13 clouts. Coach Floyd Mishler's men were guilty of only one error. Ted Small, rapidly improving Corsair twirler, pitched good ball and struck out five men, allowing only 7 bingles. Besides Small's good hurling, the Cossacks aided the Bucs in winning by playing raggedly and erring repeatedly. Captain Stevenson, Buc third-sacker, and Chuck Bailey, catcher, knocked out homers. This is Bailey's second circuit clout for the conference season, having knocked one out against Berdoo. Ray Emmanuelli, brilliant Buc center-fielder, did the best hitting; he got 3 for 5. Steve accounted for two hits. SANTA MONI...
Tennis Men Win Again [Newspaper Article] — Corsair — 22 April 1931
Tennis Men Win Again The Santa Monica Corsair tennis team defeated Pomona last Saturday, 12-5, and thus advanced one more step toward a championship. With two of the five competitors put away, there remain but three more matches to be played off. The next two of these will be played away from school, but on May 9 there will again be a home match.
TARGET PRACTICE [Newspaper Article] — Corsair — 22 April 1931
TARGET PRACTICE By Gus Vignolle Glancing at "The Viking," Long Beach J. C. publication, ye sport ed observed a hot one. In his column, " Sport Sputters," the Viking sports editor writes about Fullerton Jaysee's repeated beatings, being trampled by decisive scores. Then it probably strikes his mind that S. M. J. C. was overwhelmed, \HYI to 3 x /i, last year, by the Beachmen. Then comes the hot part. He ends the paragraph: "Fullerton and Santa Monica ought to put on a whale of a scrap!" Ha, ha, and a few more chuckles. (Laugh, Corsairs, laugh). That guy (lT B. writer) is in a Rip Van Winkle snooze; he's only about a year behind time, and ignorantly compares the poor Yellowjackets of 1931 with the Corsairs of 1930! Only a year off, Jawn; that's all. S. M. J. C.'s worst thumping this year was at Chaffey's hands, and the count did not run up into three figures, either; it was 71 to 39. Wonder if the Vikes could roll up 121 points against S. M. this year. Yeah, I wonder! The Corsair track...
S. M. J. C. Baseball Nine Meets Tigers On Clover Field Lot [Newspaper Article] — Corsair — 22 April 1931
S. M. J. C. Baseball Nine Meets Tigers On Clover Field Lot After their impressive 16-to-l win over the Pomona horsehiders, last week, Coach Floyd Mishler's Corsair diamond-men are all set for their first conference home melee. The Corsair ball players encounter the Riverside J. C. Tigers Saturday on the Clover Field diamond. The Tigers are said to have a peppy and hard-fighting organization this year, and no doubt should put up a whale of a battle against Mishler's up-and-coming crew. At present the Buc baseballers stand 50-50, having lost to San Berdoo, 3 to 1, in the opening conference game, and shellacking Pomona last Saturday. Although Coach Mishler isn't blessed with an aggregation of any too large proportions, what he has he can certainly be proud of, for practically every man on the squad is willing and a hard battler. If the Corsairs perform like they did against the Cossacks, and are in a fighting mood, victory is assured. Fans should watch with interest some of the Mishler...
