Students Entertained By Famous Endocrinologist [Newspaper Article] — Corsair — 29 April 1931

Students Entertained By Famous Endocrinologist Sixteen years experimenting on tadpoles, is what Dr. Bennett M. Allen, th£ greatest authority on endocrinology, he has been doing, and adds that that is not half of the amount of time he intends to spend on them in the future. The members of the S. M. J. C. Science Club were charmed and intrigued by this and the many other interesting features of Dr. Allen's lecture on their visit to his laboratories at the University of California, last Thursday afternoon. The Science Club is considered very fortunate to have had this opportunity of seeing this famous men and hearing him tell in his own way the many interesting things he has to tell. Dr. Allen's researches with tadpoles have given rise to our modern conclusions of the influences of the endocrine glands, especially the hypophysis and thyroid, on the development and growth of animals. This particular field, he says, is to him the most interesting, and is believed to be the most important...

About 450 Junior College teachers and administrators and University professors were present. The program opened with a general meeting at 9:30, which was addressed by Professor Raymond E. Davis, who spoke on "SemiProfessional Curricula for Junior Colleges." After the general session those in attendance went to various departmental meetings, where the junior college faculties were shown through the various University departments. This was followed by a one-half hour organ recital by Alexander Schreiner, who was formerly organist at the Mormon Tabernacle in Salt Lake City, Utah, after which the group moved to KerckhofF Hall for luncheon. This, according to Dr. Bush, is one of the finest halls devoted to student activities on any campus. The luncheon and the desserts were enjoyed immensely, an...

World Premiere Is Given At Miles Memorial Hall [Newspaper Article] — Corsair — 29 April 1931

World Premiere Is Given At Miles Memorial Hall Rovifl' Sweetie, Tom Spencer's tuneful musical comedy made its bow to the world at Miles Memorial Playhouse last night in spite of the temperamental flight of John Westervelt, its erstwhile director. Although the work is Spencer's maiden effort in the musical comedy field, it met with instantaneous success as far as the audience was concerned, and promises to become extremely popular. Alan Moody wrote the book. Spencer's music has all the life and verve necessary to a popular success. The plot centers around the movements of Margy, a young dancer, who endeavors to launch a troupe of her own. All of the members of the cast are well known to Santa Monica theater-goers. Among them are Mary Boland, Cynthia Martyn, Hazel Miller, Merlin Howe, Hartmann Renaud, Jacques Thiroux, Donald Braydon and Mabel Forburger. Mrs. Lenore Spencer is directing the performance, which will be repeated this evening and also Thursday evening.

Modern Women Not Modern [Newspaper Article] — Corsair — 29 April 1931

Modern Women Not Modern Conclusive proof that modern woman is not modern at all would seem to be the goal of archeologists. Just recently new evidence has been heaped on the old, much to the chagrin of the fair dissemblers. It seems that 3200 years ago the rising feminine generation dressed in a fashion similar to that effected by our "modern" maidens, and no doubt clamored as loudly about their pioneering spirit in the ever-raging battle to entangle the more wary sex. We are told that recently in Jutland the body of an eighteen-year-old girl of the Bronze Age was discovered in a perfect state of preservation. She wore a knee-length dress with a woolen jacket and "betassled" girdle that could easily take its place among chic kindred in any exclusive Hollywood shop undetected save for its being yellowed by age. Short hair, too, seems to have been needed to make the costume complete, for Miss Bronze Age wag bobbed, although hex less fashionable sisters also resting near by, wore their...

LITERARY [Newspaper Article] — Corsair — 29 April 1931

LITERARY "Quiet Street," Michael Ossorgin. Dial Press, New York. 1930. Few books of Russian origin have carried such a deeply universal appeal as this novel of the Revolution, and none have handled the events of that terrific time with such detachment. Michael Ossorgin has been able to realize living characters against the background of the revolution without losing them in either its darkness or its brilliance. One hardly knows, one certainly does not care on which side the author's sympathies lie. Good and bad in his novel are not questions of theory, economics, or politics. He does not write a trait, but a transcript of life. And how his Jharacters live! One is left with a series of perfectly drawn characters, and a perfectly felt situation, which combine into a picture at once poignant, clear and deep. It is tempting to quote at length. This is a book no one should miss.

CAMPUS CHUCKLES [Newspaper Article] — Corsair — 29 April 1931

CAMPUS CHUCKLES She was only an optician's daughter—two glasses and she made a spectacle of herself! "Say, boy, I've got a girl that's only been kissed by two parties." "Yeah, I know that kind; by the Republicans and the Democrats." Man was made before woman, in order, perhaps, to give him time to think up some likely answers to her first questions. The following was overheard in the office of a concern devoted to research in family histories: "Say, Bill, what am I going to do with this Smith family tree? I have just found that old Josiah Smith was electrocuted for committing murder, and he was an important member of the line. "Just write that Josiah Smith occupied the chair of applied electricity in one of our public institutions."

Campuses Here And There [Newspaper Article] — Corsair — 29 April 1931

Campuses Here And There Ages of women students at the University of California range from IS years to 25 years "and over," according to statistics compiled recently. The University of Washington is holding a contest to name its new rowing shell. A prize of ten dollars is offered to the winner. Agitation has begun on the Drake University campus for the return of a "victory bell." This bell, which was rung for chapel and to announce athletic victories, was taken down in 1916 and was never returned. An anthology of college verse is to be published in May by Harper and Brothers. It will consist solely of poetry written by students now attending college. Law students should be accorded a broader education, thinks Professor Raymond Morley of the department of public law of Columbia University. Men at the University of Oklahoma have lost their last male stronghold now that co-eds of that institution are invading pool and billiard halls. The fad reached its climax at the university last sem...

Signboard Censorship [Newspaper Article] — Corsair — 29 April 1931

Signboard Censorship We have rigid censorship of motion pictures; why not a little censorship of signboards advertising the movies? Flaming scenes depicting the passionate love-making of the screen hero and heroine stare us in the face wherever we go. Nearly nude women lounge on luxurious divans, their baby-like faces wreathed in sickly smiles that are designed to bewitch and charm the innocent spectator but hardly achieves its purpose. Those advocating censorship of billboards are contemptuously called "narrow-minded." Perhaps, but the fact still remains that from the viewpoint of the moral effect upon the young people of the country, such dazzling spectacles as we see on the theater signboards are tearing down the moral standard of the American youth.

J. C., or Liberal Arts College? [Newspaper Article] — Corsair — 29 April 1931

J. C., or Liberal Arts College? For the past four years Sacramento Junior College has been ambitious to secure a bill in the legislature which would give her the authority to become a four-year degree-granting institution. This year the bill was introduced again, and passed the House of Representatives, but was defeated in the Senate. There is a great deal of feeling that the only function of the junior college is to complete the field of secondary education, and that it should not look forward to becoming an institution of higher education. If these schools should become four-year colleges we would soon have most of the junior colleges in the state ambitious to emulate their example.
