The Makeup Box [Newspaper Article] — Corsair — 6 May 1931
The Makeup Box "THE WATCHED POT" Formerly an associate director of the Pasadena Community Playhouse, Ralph Freud resumes that capacity and also plays the leading role in the forthcoming production of the comedy of feminine intrigue, "The Watched Pot" by Saki, to be presented from May 14 to 23, at the Playhouse. Freud plays the role of an uncle who thinks the young heir to the estate should get married and to further the purpose conspires with a young lady to get things started. Three other husband-seekers enter the contest, and the play becomes an analysis of feminine technique in stalking a husband. "The Watched Pot" will be the first dramatic presentation of a play by Saki to be offered Western American audiences. The other presentation of it was before a limited audience in the East. Saki is often called the Mark Twain of England. The new play follows the conclusion of "Death Takes a Holiday," by Walter Ferris, featuring lan Maclaren with Marion Clayton and Charles Levison, which...
COLLEGE MARRIAGES HAVE MOST SUCCESS [Newspaper Article] — Corsair — 6 May 1931
COLLEGE MARRIAGES HAVE MOST SUCCESS ''Modern marriages, at least the most successful ones, are made in college!' This is the assertion of a writer in the current issue of "Good Housekeeping." The assertion is backed up by sketchy but significant figures. In the first 30 years of the century, approximately one out of every nine marriages in the United States ended in divorce. But of those who married after having met in college, only one couple in 15 was divorced. In seeking reasons for the greater stability of college-made marriages, the writer finds several primary factors. Chief among these are: Less incompatibility, because of equal education, greater mental congeniality, and more mutual interests; Less tendency toward jealousy because of the amount of informal and democratic contacts of a co-educational campus; Courtship of two and three years while working for degrees and waiting for salaries; An opportunity for comparison and selection. Of these, the last is the most important...
Teachers Win Victory; Senate Studies Pension [Newspaper Article] — Corsair — 6 May 1931
Teachers Win Victory; Senate Studies Pension Public school teachers of California recently won a victory in the State Senate when, after a lengthy debate, the Senate voted, 22 to 16, to withdraw Senator George Rochester's teacher-retirement bill from the finance committee, where it was refused approval. The committee voted the bill down after being told the proposed new system would cost the state approximately £8,000,000 during the coming biennium. The Rochester bill would grant retired teachers about 3900 a year instead of $5OO allowed under the existing system. The arguments were weighed mainly upon an economic balance. Proponents claimed retirement of aged teachers economical to the state; opponents maintained the present period of depression and uncertain revenues to be the wrong time for the state to assume such burden.
"Viking Submits Remedy To Stop Student Cheating [Newspaper Article] — Corsair — 6 May 1931
"Viking Submits Remedy To Stop Student Cheating The Long Beach Viking suggests a way to prevent cheating; but admits that even after these precautions have been taken $ a few would get by: Students will march into class under guard of policemen armed with sawed-off shotguns. Students will be stopped at the door and searched for contraband notes. Before entering the classroom each student will be given a psychological examination to determine whether or not he has any idea of cheating. Classrooms will be decorated with such notes as "Honesty is the Best Policy" and "Think Before You Cheat." Each student will wear blinders and have a handkerchief placed in his mouth. Student and teacher will enter together and the door will be sealed. Students will sit two seats apart, with teachers standing between each two students. Teachers will be armed with blackjacks to inspire respect. Additional teachers on the outside will watch through peepholes in the wall. Highly-tuned dictaphones will be ...
Corsair Baseball Team Thumps Chaffey Jaysee, 8 To 7 In Close Melee [Newspaper Article] — Corsair — 6 May 1931
Corsair Baseball Team Thumps Chaffey Jaysee, 8 To 7 In Close Melee At last Santa Monica Junior College has avenged some of the defeats suffered at the hands of the Chaffey Jaysee athletic teams. The avenging came in the form of a baseball win over the Panthers, Saturday, by a close 8-to-7 score. In a game fairly filled with action Captain Stevenson and his men fumbled Coach Bert Heiser's men at the Clover Field lot. The outcome of the struggle, at the present time, has no bearing as far as the championship is concerned, as the San Bernardino Indians are leading the conference race with four straight wins to their credit. However, Coach Floyd Mishler's prodigies rate a good second, having triumphed in their last three tilts, although they dropped the opening tussle of the season to the Braves, by a 3-to-l count. Athey, Small, Hit Homers As far as handiness with the willow is concerned, Wally Hickman, third sacker; Ray Emmanuelli, center fielder; Chuck catcher; Bill Athey, second base...
S. M. J. C. GOLFERS IN FIRST VICTORY [Newspaper Article] — Corsair — 6 May 1931
S. M. J. C. GOLFERS IN FIRST VICTORY It was Santa Monica day for Mr. Phipps' aspiring golfers, too, the divoteers registering their first conference win of the season last Saturday. The Corsairs downed the Riverside Junior College mashie players, 3 and 2, in some hotlycontested matches held at the Santa Monica municipal course. After considerable fighting and hoping to win at least one set of conference matches, Mr. Phipps' men accomplished the much-sought feat Saturday, and justly deserve credit for their win. With a little more practice, it would not be surprising to see the Corsair divot-diggers come up strongly and triumph in their remaining matches. The Bucs have some excellent men on the team, and it may be that they will come through in thoroughbred fashion in the impending engagements. Last Saturday's results were as follows: Weir Grace (SM) won one up on the fiineteenth; Gordon F.cker (SM) won 5 and 4; Tom De Ghionno (SM) won, 5 and 4; Dryden Bergeron (SM) lost, one up; Bud...

99 Out Of 100 Do [Newspaper Article] — Corsair — 6 May 1931
99 Out Of 100 Do The question of whether unkissed brides were to be preferred was answered by a class of Lehigh University students with much divergence of opinion. From the answers given it would seem that both unkissed and kissed girls had equal chances with the male population of Lehigh. The question of women bobbed up in a class conducted by Dr.' Stanley Thomas. "Do you insist," the doctor asked members of the pre-medic'al class, "that your future wife be unkissed?" Forty-seven said no, while 32 wished to enjoy the first kiss. One insisted it made no difference.
TARGET PRACTICE [Newspaper Article] — Corsair — 6 May 1931
TARGET PRACTICE By Gus Vignolle * * * WELL, it looks as if the San Bernardino Junior College Indians are at the present leading the baseball loop, having achieved about four straight conference wins. The tribe no doubt has a good nine this year, and, should everything go oke, they will cling to the top perch when conference pelotatossing festivities have terminated. NOT to be forgotten, however, is the Santa Monica Junior College nine, which is gradually climbing, and the direction, don't forget, is up. Three straight hard-fought wins is by no means anything to be overlooked. Capt. Stevenson and his men deserve credit, and so does Coach Floyd Mishler. But all isn't over yet. The best may yet come" ERNIE Fickas is probably the outstanding moundsman in the loop at the present time. The Redskin has been in rare form lately, as is evidenced by a casual glance at the "War Whoop," San Berdoo J. C. publication. And there is no doubt about that; "ifs" and "buts" are excluded. Behind his bri...
Capt. Stevenson's Ball Aggregation Travels To Citrus Jaysee Saturday [Newspaper Article] — Corsair — 6 May 1931
Capt. Stevenson's Ball Aggregation Travels To Citrus Jaysee Saturday Santa Monica Junior College versus Citrus J. C. That's the lineup for next Saturday's baseball dish, which is set for the Owls' diamond. That the Corsair nine is rapidly improving with each start cannot be doubted. After their impressive 8-to-7 victory over the Chaffey Panthers, Coach Floyd Mishler's men are destined to win their remaining tussles, and end the season properly. Three fracases have been won by the team, and one only lost. The Citrus outfit isn't an exceptionally strong aggregation, having dropped a 5-1 decision recently to the powerful San Berdoo Indians, the club that administered the Corsairs their only defeat. Mishler's men lost to the Tribe, 3 to 1, only after a hectic struggle. Citrus' two outstanding performers seem to be Eagan, catcher, and Mead, short stop. These two men have played a snappy brand of ball in previous Owl games. If they live up to expectations they should provide much of the o...

Next Week's "Samojac" Is Final for This Term "Next week's issue of the SAMOJAC will mark the last of the present college semester," was the announcement made today by the editor, after a consultation with members of the staff. It was deemed advisable to take this action because of the impending finals, so that each reporter might be free to give his entire time to his subjects. The final issue will be number thirty-four of volume two, which means that the SAMOIAC has appeared each Wednesday since last September, with the exception of one week at the end of the first semester. This is considered a remarkable record: a paper issued in the first week of school in September, and issued continuously with the one exception, from that date until the present.
