Letter From High School Student Explodes Theory [Newspaper Article] — Corsair — 29 April 1931
Letter From High School Student Explodes Theory EDITOR, SAMOJAC: I know it is a commonly known fact that Junior College students have reached full maturity, an age where the kid-like tricks which were practiced in High School are now passe. High School students are given an inferiority complex because of this theory, and the purpose of this letter is to expose certain "high school" practices that have been going on in the Junior College. It is a common sight to see pieces of chalk flying out of the Junior College windows. 1 was shocked beyond words when 1 first noticed it, but it has become a daily occurrence, and my belief that only high school students were capable of stooping so low is shot to pieces. It looks like the Jaysee has stolen our stuff. Another thing. We (the High School) do not approve of the shower of leaves and paper that is thrown from the J. C. balcony every noon. I believe a word to the wise is sufficient. Yours for justice, A. L. (S. M. H. S. Student)
Penny Hop Is Best Yet [Newspaper Article] — Corsair — 29 April 1931
Penny Hop Is Best Yet Last Thursday's Penny Hop was the most successful one of its kind so far, according to Evelyn Cook, commissioner of arts, who is directly responsible for the Hops. The large attendance was due in part to the rain, perhaps, but at any rate the girls' gymnasium was well filled. One good thing brings on another, so there will be more Penny Hops in the future as long as the students continue to support them.
Refinery Visited [Newspaper Article] — Corsair — 29 April 1931
Refinery Visited Members of two of Mr. Dulin's chemistry classes visited the Standard Oil Company refinery at El Segundo last Tuesday. Students were taken on a supervised tour of inspection, and, from all reports, enjoyed the trip immensely. Knowledge of the fact that permission to go through the plant is not usually granted lent added interest to the visit. This was the second of three proposed field trips for the chemistry classes.
MASSEY SELECTED CLUB'S DELEGATE [Newspaper Article] — Corsair — 29 April 1931
MASSEY SELECTED CLUB'S DELEGATE Every two months someone is chosen to represent the Santa Monica Junior College at the Lions' Club weekly luncheon. John Reynolds was the first representative. Harry Massie is at present the representative. At the meeting held Thursday, April 23, Mr. E. D. French of the Trust Department of the Security-First National Bank of Los Angeles in speaking on "Community Property," stressed the differences between community property and separate property. His definition of community property was that property acquired by husband and wife, except by gift or inheritance, and that separate property was property acquired before marriage or inherited or received by gift after marriage. In connection with this the fact that every business man should keep records showing th time of acquisition of any property and the source of the money invested in it. In wills, separate property may be disposed of as a person sees fit, but husband and wife can each dispose of only o...

Production of Poetry Denotes Arrival of Spring at S. M. J. C. [Newspaper Article] — Corsair — 29 April 1931
Production of Poetry Denotes Arrival of Spring at S. M. J. C. It seems that in spring a young man's fancy not only turns to love, but to poetry as well. The following lines are evidence that as far as Santa Monica Junior College students are concerned, spring is here. Even philosophy themes are given in meter. CYNICISM A certain little girl of our J. C. Thinks the face of a man is mighty funny. She considers it worth her time To put it down in lines that rhyme. Usually a girl's face takes after her dad. Then why should they get hopping mad And write cruel words about men's faces, When theirs too are seen in public places? Veils used to hide their faces for shame; Now paints and powders do the same. Men, I ask you, one and all, Including you who've chanced to fall, Is there anything so out of place In this wide world as a woman's face. —Robert Sanders. THREE MINUS " Ideas are all we know," said Locke; "From birth our tabula we stock," But simple ideas must be upheld; This fact to gra...
CORSAIR PELOTA TEAM WINS [Newspaper Article] — Corsair — 29 April 1931
CORSAIR PELOTA TEAM WINS 5. M. Ball Team Trips Tigers, Bto 5; Ted Small Pitches Excellent Game Santa Monica Junior College's baseball team won its second consecutive pelotatilt of the conference season, last Saturday, by defeating the Riverside Junior College Tigers, 8 to 5. The melee, held on the Clover Field diamond, saw the Corsairs play a heady game. Captain "Steve" Stevenson and his men started out brilliantly, scoring two runs in the initial inning, two in the third, three in the fourth, and one in the sixth. Tigers Score Five The fourth inning was the only big session for Coach Jesse Mortenson's men, The Tigers bringing across all of their five tallies. It certainly looked dark and gloomy for Pitcher Ted Small of the Corsair institution around this time; however, despite the fact that he was hit hard, he weathered the storm and came back in great fashion to finish the game. Coach Floyd Mishler's men managed to grab eight bingles, while the Riverside men, although scoring only...

CORSAIR GOLFERS TAKE ON TIGERS [Newspaper Article] — Corsair — 29 April 1931
CORSAIR GOLFERS TAKE ON TIGERS After remaining idle last Saturday, Mr. Phipps' fighting golfers take on the Riverside J. C. divot-diggers next Saturday. Matches are scheduled for the Santa Monica Municipal course. So far this season in conference engagements, the Corsair club-wielders have had what can certainly be called a tough time. They have yet to win in conference competition. San Berdoo and Pomona have been winners over Mr. Phipps' men, but the tide is due to change. Little is known of the Tiger divoteers, but the Bucs are itching for a win all over, and earnestly hope to turn the trick Saturday. A few students to encourage them might do considerable. The Corsairs have some fairly good men on the team, some having acquired excellent experience as "loopers," commonly known as caddies. Men who should engage in match play Saturday are: Weir Grace, Gordon F.cker, Tom De Ghionno, Dryden Bergeron and Ray Gregory.
CHAFFEY MEETS S. M. ON DIAMOND [Newspaper Article] — Corsair — 29 April 1931
CHAFFEY MEETS S. M. ON DIAMOND Fresh after two conference wins over Pomona Junior College and Riverside J. C., Coach Floyd Mishler's S' M. J. C. pelota-performers meet what is said to be a strong Chaffey J. C. nine, next Saturday. The game is scheduled for the Clover Field lot at 2:00 p. m. Captain Steve Stevenson and his men have been going great guns lately, and big strong to end high in the percentage column b ( efore all is over. Against Riverside the Corsairs showed plenty of pep and vitality; they showed that they can come from behind and win the game—this proving that the Bucs possess fight. Steve is now even up with Chuck Bailey, catcher, who has clouted two homers thus far this season. The former belted his second one last Saturday against the Tigers. Other powerful hitters on the team are: Bill Athey, second base; Ray Emmanuelli, center fielder; Wally Hickman, short stop, and Lloyd Hurst, first baseman.
TARGET PRACTICE [Newspaper Article] — Corsair — 29 April 1931
TARGET PRACTICE By Gus Vignolle AFTER losing to San Bernardino Junior College by' a 3-to-l score, Santa Monica Jaysee's peppy baseball nine has come back in great fashion thus far. In the last two contests the Corsair baseballers have defeated Pomona J. C., 16 to 1, and last Saturday downed the Riverside Tigers, 8-5. THAT can hardly be called bad; it's very good, and, should Coach Mishler's prodigies keep up the fine work, many will find Santa Monica's willing horsehiders well up in the dough when things are over. Let's hope so, anyway. STUDENT support to all the impending tiffs is one way in which we can aid the Corsairs in staying up« Another game is scheduled to take place Saturday on the Clover Field diamond. Chaffey J. C. will furnish the opposition. After that hard-to-forget three-point basketball defeat, that stunning grid thrashing, and that track defeat not so long ago, the Corsairs are just aching for revenge. And you can bet your last nickel that they will attempt to aven...

PRE -REGISTRATION IS UNDER WAY [Newspaper Article] — Corsair — 6 May 1931
PRE -REGISTRATION IS UNDER WAY Dr. Ralph H. Bush Announces Addition Of Four New Courses "Four new courses will be added to next year's curriculum," was Director Ralph H. Bush's welcome announcement at the opening of yesterday's pre-reg-istration assembly. The courses will be Journalism, Argumentation, Political Science, and History of the Americas. Regarding the employment of additional instructors, Dr. Bush remained silent; although he pointed out that an enrollment of five hundred is indicated for the fall semester. Dr. Bush pointed out the urgency of "shopping early" for next year's courses. It has been the policy in Santa Monica Junior College to give present students, and early signees, first choice. As the classes fill up to quota, they are closed, and late comers always find it difficult to arrange programs as they would like to have them. Two new two-unit courses will be offered: English IX and X, a year course in Argumentation and Debate. This course will give instruction i...
CORSAIRS CONQUER OXY VARSITY [Newspaper Article] — Corsair — 6 May 1931
CORSAIRS CONQUER OXY VARSITY 43 To 32 Is Score At Close of Session Occidental College's swimming team was calmed, 43 to 32, by Coach Bill Osterholt's natators in a swimfest staged Monday in the Miramar swimming pool. This is the first meet that the Corsair fin-men have won this season, and the Occidental Varsity scalp is a fine one to begin any collection. In the previous meets the Corsair swimmers have been badly handicapped by illness of some of the members, which caused many points to be lost uncontested, as no second-string men were available to fill the vacant places. Monday's team lacked only one member —Ray Hile —to be complete. The Corsairs turned in some fine races, and were responsible for some good times. James McHenry, brilliant breast-stroke man, again won the 100-yard race in that style, while Herb Wall, former Venice star, emerged victorious in the 100-yard freestyle event. His time was 1:03.2. Another Corsair paddler, Herb Starr, won the 100-yard backstroke and the 2...
