Fighting Heart [Newspaper Article] — Corsair — 26 November 1929
Fighting Heart Business, sports, adventure —all have their heroes. One of the greatest qualities which these heroes possess is a fighting heart. Everyone has troubles, obstacles to overcome. Some meet defeat, some barely eke out an existence against their ill luck, while others, every one of them a hero in his own right, overcomes his misfortunes and emerges happy —happy with the thought that within him lies the power to master trying, unpleasant circumstances and come out of them smiling. Studies furnish just such a test. If students allow their petty feelings to get the better of them, and in oMer better to spite themselves, suddenly let down in their schoolwork and assume an "aw, I don't give a darn" attitude, they fall into the class with those of no character, whether they belong there or not. The future certainly must hold something for them, something which beckons to them with arms of magnetic force. They should fight till they reach those arms —till they merit their affecti...
High Scholarship Average Possible [Newspaper Article] — Corsair — 26 November 1929
High Scholarship Average Possible This week is the half-way mark in the semester. To date many students have quit, their excuses being many and not the least bit original. Perhaps the worst excuse given was, "I didn't think I would have to study." We are glad that students of that caliber have decided that Santa Monica Junior College is not the place for them. Now comes a period of examinations which will clearly show our deficiencies in scholastic accomplishments. There is no reason why each student in the college shouldn't pass all of his or her examinations. There are no activities interfering with studying. If ever students had an opportunity to put plenty of time into studying, this is it. Colleges are not only known by the teams they have; they are known just as well by their scholastic average. Let's make that average a high one in S. M. J. C., and one that the other junior colleges can shoot at. —A. R.
Unity A Necessity [Newspaper Article] — Corsair — 26 November 1929
Unity A Necessity What about unity in the Junior College? There seems to be a sad lack of it at present. Much more can be accomplished, a better feeling among students established, a greater school spirit attained, if everyone knew that everyone else was behind him. True, sports bring out in one the real school spirit more than anything else, but why wait for sports? There are more fundamental principles than sports to create a true fraternal atmosphere. A junior college as small as ours should be one big fraternity —sorority, so to speak. And wny not? Are we not a small group within a much larger one, working to gain distinction, to put the name of our school at a place on the map of achievement, where it will have no chance ever to be forgotten —have no chance to fade into the dim existence occupied by schools of few accomplishments?—E. T. M.
Humor [Newspaper Article] — Corsair — 26 November 1929
Humor Shakespeare says, "brevity is the soul of wit." From what one often hears today it would seem to follow that brevity is the whole of wit. Furthermore, all so-called humor having the characteristic of briefness is by no means always effective. Here, as in all other writing and conversation, originality is the outstanding requirement. It is generally understood that a very fine way of acquiring originality is ,by spe dy observation and alertness. Keeping this in mind, therefore, there should be no reason why our college newspaper should not contain some samples of real humor. —M. F.

STAGE-SCREEN [Newspaper Article] — Corsair — 26 November 1929
STAGE-SCREEN "Seven Faces." Paul Muni in portraying seven of the fifteen characters, presents one of the most versatile bits of character acting ever seen in either silent or talking pictures. "Follow Through." One of the best musical comedies in the citj' for quite a while. "Rio Rita." Anyone who says Bebe Daniels can't act should see this. Absolutely the best in talking-singing-dancing pictures. "Bad Babies." With all the publicity this should play to a full house every performance. Anyone who wants to see a clean comedy had better not go. "Welcome Danger." Harold Lloyd joins the throng and makes a talkie. A boy, a girl, and the same old hokum. "The Queen Was in the Parlour." Pauline Frederick gives one of her fine presentations in this romantic comedy. There's no doubt but that her place is on the stage. "The Painted Angel." Billie Dove plays a different role in this. A pretty good picture of night club life. "Bird in Hand." John Drinkwater's merry comedy holds the audience spell...
HUMOR [Newspaper Article] — Corsair — 26 November 1929
HUMOR "Women are all alike." "Yeah, each one's different." "There are eight mistakes in this picture. How many can you find?" "Eight." Marie M.: Are you a traveling salesman? Larry M.: Yes. M. M.: And are all traveling salesmen as bad as everyone says? L. M.: Yes. M. M.: And are you as bad as the rest of them? L. M.: Yes. M.

BOOK REVIEW [Newspaper Article] — Corsair — 26 November 1929
BOOK REVIEW "Up at the Villa," by Marie Cher, is an interesting diary of a middle-aged woman, who views the lives of the people about her. She introduces Henry, Woodman, Silvio, Adela, Tatia, Rose and Laura, and proceeds to tell in a light yet intriguing way the affairs of these people as she sees them. Silvio and Tatia first occupy the center of attraction, winning the reader over at once to an appreciatipn of their youth and fire. • Silvio, with his self-satisfaction, his wit, and his physical beauty, inspires Tatia in her sculptural work. Gradually, however, he tires of her, and is taken in by the charm of the clever Adela. He breaks down her cold reserve, and makes her helpless against his clever wiles. Henry comes upon Silvio and Tatia one day, and is at once taken by the fiery little Russian. She pities him for his ill health and loneliness. Henry, sensing this, is driven to a mental collapse which finishes him physically as well. In a last state of blinding jealousy of Silvio...
New College Y Fetes Faculty At Luncheon [Newspaper Article] — Corsair — 26 November 1929
New College Y Fetes Faculty At Luncheon Thursday, November 14, members of the Junior College Y. M. C. A. entertained the male contingent of the faculty with a luncheon at the Tower Cafe. At a gathering of this sort, as Mr. Fred Tsheppe stated, students are students, and professors are professors —in a different sense of the accepted definition. In the hubbub of mealtime conversation Coach Osterholt claimed with the sincerest candor that "you ought to have heard Coulson eat!" But someone saw that Coach "sure could put it away," so things were evened somewhat. Mr. Fred Tsheppe introduced Dr. R. H. Bush. Dr. Bush told the nucleus of the coming Y that they would probably be more powerful in influencing the student life than any other college organization, and expressed his desire that the club would grow rapidly. He said that the duty of its members is to enroll as many students as possible to a recognition of the high ideals which accentuate the motives of the Y. Mr. Patterson gave a c...

Junior College Glee Club Is Organized [Newspaper Article] — Corsair — 26 November 1929
Junior College Glee Club Is Organized The Junior College Glee Club has been definitely organized. At a meeting held last week it was agreed that Tuesday of every week, from 3:30 until 4:30, will be the time for the scheduled meeting. Miss Moon and Miss VVhalley, of the music department in the high school, are giving their help to make this club one of the best among those of the present junior colleges in Southern California. Miss Whalley explained that at first the club will have to do work as a mixed chorus, but that as the club grows, both a men's and a women's chorus will be organized. Dr. Ralph Bush expressed his desire of having a really good representative club. Those of you who can sing, to quote Dr. Bush, "file your voices" and be on hand next Tuesday in room 76.
Psychological Test Results on File Now [Newspaper Article] — Corsair — 26 November 1929
Psychological Test Results on File Now The results of the psychological tests given several weeks ago by the Board of Education and Stanford University, have been received and are on file in the director's office. The scores will not be made public, and no student will be able to find out his actual I. Q. The findings will be used by the administration for reference purposes. The object of the test was to try and determine if junior college students who go on to higher institutions are better prepared for higher division work than students who have had the first two years at a larger college. The results of these tests will be kept by both the Santa Monica Junior College and Stanford University, with the future records of each student.
Fraternity Question Is Now Settled [Newspaper Article] — Corsair — 26 November 1929
Fraternity Question Is Now Settled The Administrative Section of the Southern California Junior College Conference held its meeting last Wednesday at Fullerton. The principal of the Long Beach Junior College is the president of the conference. Dr. Ralph Bush, director, and Mr. W. F. Barnum, principal of the Santa Monica Junior College, attended and represented this institution. The Section holds periodic meetings where problems affecting junior colleges are discussed and acted on. The group in this way facilitates the handling of problems which may at some time affect each member of the Conference. The principal action at this last meeting, which will do much to place the junior colleges on a high standing, was in regard to honorary societies. It was decided that the junior colleges who are members of the Conference will only recognize the forming of inter-collegiate honor societies that have the recognition of the American Association of Junior Colleges and also of the National Dep...

Field House Has Lights and Heat [Newspaper Article] — Corsair — 26 November 1929
Field House Has Lights and Heat The Board of Education has passed a requisition for ample improvements in the Jaysee field house. The quarters are being, at the present time, duly equipped with lights in the locker and shower room, heater and store room, and in the office of the Director. Three large gas steamheaters have also been installed, two in the locker and shower room, and one in the Coach's room for the coming bleak winter months. That the men appreciated the actions of the Board of Education is indicative in the shouts of approval that greeted the electricians and their tools. For a while the field house resembled a dark, dreary cabin of the Pilgrim days, and the men felt the darkness and dreariness of the house after a hard day on the courts. Now the advent of these new additions makes the field house a real place in which to work.
