"Prexy" Sets Leeward Anchor; Heaves Boat To [Newspaper Article] — Corsair — 6 May 1931
"Prexy" Sets Leeward Anchor; Heaves Boat To "There's guberin' aboard," said the Santa Monica Junior College Nautical Club's chief mate, Mr. Art Redden, who is Corsair prexy in his spare moments. He has made secure his port anchor to keep his new twenty-two cabin liner from blowing off the scaffolding, where it is now in the process of aging. The secret's out now, but we don't know what he is going to do with it. Junior College geologists tell us that his yard is build over an ancient Los Angeles River, and it is rumored that he is waiting for the tide to come in, so that he may launch his new Pacific greyhound. If the profs have noticed a pale look on his face in class, it is only because he was thinking of the water, and got seasick. He has not yet named the sea-goin' hack, but it will probably be called "Eden." It is rumored that the genial president cannot swim, but the swimming team has offered to remedy that, a life-jacket and a bottle of Mother Carey's seasick remedy will do t...

EXCHANGES [Newspaper Article] — Corsair — 6 May 1931
EXCHANGES The University of Arizona has been accepted as a, member of the American Association of University Women. The Association is a national organization of college and university women organized for the purpose of raising the standards of women in education. Students at Leland Stanford want the ax out of the vault, but the president thinks differently. Michigan State Normal does not allow a girl to graduate if she smokes. A petition for the abolishment of compulsory R. O. T. C. service, signed by 10,000 students and representing 56 colleges, was recently presented to President Hoover. "There's entirely too much reading going on," Professor Morse S. Allen of Trinity College declared recently in a lecture on "Over-Reading" to a group of approximately 75 women. Undergraduate students at Oxford owe the storekeepers of that city debts totalling 31,250,000, according to a recent survey. Cod liver oil was served to the five-year-old lion cub, mascot of the University of Columbia. Thi...
CAMPUS CHUCKLES [Newspaper Article] — Corsair — 6 May 1931
CAMPUS CHUCKLES Gibbs: Did you fill your date last night? Bibbs: If I didn't she has an abnormal capacity for food. Chin: What is so rare as a day in June? Double Chin: A charity bazaar in Scotland. Gates: Could yoU help me with this problem ? Bates: I could, but I don't think it would be right. Gates: Well, take a try at it anyway. Little Girl: What's a college professor? Her Brother: He's the fellow who gets the hioney after the athletic coaches have all been paid off. "I've always been religiously inclined," said the oyster as he slid down the minister's throat, "but I never thought I'd enter the clergy." "Gret Scott! Who stuffed that towel in the patient's mouth?" "I did, Doc. You said the main thing was to keep her quiet."
Rest For The Weary [Newspaper Article] — Corsair — 6 May 1931
Rest For The Weary Many of us in these days of noise and hurry often longingly yearn for a quiet and restful place or retreat, an ideal place in which to compose our thoughts, or a right place in which to read a favorite book without disturbance of any kind. Some may share with the poet Keats the desirability of dipping into "a gentle tale" in the open woodland, but the majority of us would much rather prefer an indoor retreat, with more comfortable seating capacity, with softly glowing light, with more congenial warmth, and with our favorite books on open shelves, not too elaborately indexed nor yet too uniformly or too gaudily bound. Now, such a retreat is actually in existence today in the very up-to-date University of Minnesota, and it is known as the "Arthor Upson Room." This is a memorial to a poet member of the faculty, and is intended only for those who read for pleasure. All the worry and fuss of studying for examinations are left outside the door of this much desired retre...
Philosophy of Innocence and Guilt [Newspaper Article] — Corsair — 6 May 1931
Philosophy of Innocence and Guilt Yesterday, in the usual manner, an elderly women motorist indicated and began a left turn. She was well within her right. Unfortunately an officer of the law chose that particular moment to race forth in a blaze of color, noise and officiousness, in the manner of a man who is accustomed to administer the law but feels himself to be above its restrictions. There was a crash of grinding metal, and the officer was thrown high into the air. As he hit the hard pavement on the downfall, his leg crumpled under him. The innosent member of the transaction will always carry the blame in his mind. Her life will be conditioned by an accident. But the responsible party, will he gain? Is Emerson's law of compensation in operation? Everything comes to him who waits, is an old saw that has lost nothing by its age, not even its rasping qualities. After a year and a half of suspense the postoffice department has acted, and the Samojac is accepted as second-class matt...

Girls Lose [Newspaper Article] — Corsair — 6 May 1931
Girls Lose Due chiefly to lack of time and opportunity for practice, Lydia Fetherolf, playing first singles, and Lucile Williams and Elisabeth Maries, first doubles, lost their matches at the L. A. J. C. play-day. The doubles match, however, ran into three sets. Helen McGregor and Joy Rutherford represented Santa Monica in the swimming meet which was held in the afternoon. Miss McGregor took a third in the 27yard dash for S. M. J. C.'s only point.
It May Not Be True But: [Newspaper Article] — Corsair — 6 May 1931
It May Not Be True But: A grand old party burst forth last Thursday night. Pop O'Rourke, Duane Stevenson, Ray Emmanuelli and Dink Thomas, accompanied by several girls from different points in Southern California, journeyed to the L. A. Library and did some intensive stftdying. At least it was reported that they studied. Afterwards a good time was enjoyed by all when the party visited Dr. Demmy Stoneback at his apartment. Wallv Hickman, Duane Stevenson, Pop O'Rourke, Nes Enrico, and possibly Ray F.manuelli, were planning to attend the fights in L. A. last Friday. It was breezed about that refreshments of some kind were to be in order during the evening. Duane Stevenson finds he is falling in love with a girl from Los Angeles. Her name is Helen Bercher. She must be good if she can outclass the Santa Monica girls. She is undoubtedly the cause of Steve's sudden attention to his personal appearance. He burst forth in a sky-blue sweater and trousers to match, last Friday, that even put Fr...
Maiden's Prayer [Newspaper Article] — Corsair — 6 May 1931
Maiden's Prayer The fair co-ed on bended knee Whispered a prayer to Heaven above. She prayed, "Oh, Lord, please send to me A handsome man, whom I can love. I want a caveman, big and strong, With eyes of blue and hair so blond— A man to whom good looks belong, Of whom the girls are veyy fond. He must wear white pants to match his hair; In fact, dress like the Prince of Pilsen." What's the answer to her pray'r? I dunno: ask Don Willson. —R. Sanders.
WM. FLOYD BARNUM TALKS TO ADVANCED ECONOMICS CLASSES ON BUSINESS SLUMPS [Newspaper Article] — Corsair — 6 May 1931
WM. FLOYD BARNUM TALKS TO ADVANCED ECONOMICS CLASSES ON BUSINESS SLUMPS Principal W. F. Barnum discussed with the students of Mr. Wallbank's advanced economics classes, Monday May 4, the present business depresseion. He first cited the depressions of 1894, 1907, and of 1914. During the depression of 1894, he said, Grover Cleveland, then president, was blamed for it all. There was no rain, consequently no crops, and nothing to feed the animals —yet Cleveland was blamed. In 1914, when Santa Monica was a town of twelve thousand people, there were eight hundred houses vacant. Other depressions have thus produced dire results. But then it was lack of food. Today it is lack of money circulation. Only last week, Mr. Barnum said, a man went into his office and complained that he had to burn his wheat. Food is abundant; money isn't. Lack of confidence is one of the greatest reasons for depression. The banks, ior instance, have sold more safe deposit boxes than they have in years. Another res...
