SCHOOL HYMN TO BE SUNG AT GRADUATION [Newspaper Article] — Corsair — 13 May 1931
SCHOOL HYMN TO BE SUNG AT GRADUATION Intensive drill on the new Junior College hymn will be inaugurated by the glee club and chorus groups, according to announcement made today by Mrs. Dorothy Williams of the music department. Plans for commencement call for the singing of the college hymn at the close of the exercises, and every effort is being made to have the entire student body learn the "Alma Mater" in time for the ceremony. Mimeographed copies of the hymn, including the melody score, are being prepared for distribution among the student body. The administration requests that the students co-operate in this move so that the first graduation exercise may be a success. HAIL THEE, ALMA MATER All hail thee, Alma Mater, Santa Monica, Glory and praise to Thee, Santa Monica; Where the sky meets the sea will our hearts always be, Ever faithful to Thee —loyal and true. Then praise and glory to Thee, Santa Monica; Hail Thee, all hail to Thee, Santa Monica!
Final Choice Is Made on Cover for "Spin Drift" [Newspaper Article] — Corsair — 13 May 1931
Final Choice Is Made on Cover for "Spin Drift" Final choice for the Spindrift yearbook cover was made late yesterday afternoon by a committee of the yearbook staff. A representative of Weber-McCrea Company, which has the contract, was at the Junior College and met with the committee. Arthur Redden, editor of the yearbook, while not wishing to disclose the actual design and material for the first annual, has stated, nevertheless, that the design is unusual and of a much better quality than that usually found in this class of publication. In general, the material is new in design and fabric. An artistic die, characteristic of the spirit of Santa Monica Junior College, forms a feature of the book. Those few who were fortunate enough to see the sample submitted, feel that a treat is in store for the students who were farsighted enough to subscribe for a copy before the edition was exhausted.

Spiritless Spirit [Newspaper Article] — Corsair — 13 May 1931
Spiritless Spirit Loveless love, foodless food, fireless fire, and spiritless spirit. It seems that the modern trend is toward doing away with everything worth while. The spiritless spirit seems to be very much in evidence in the Santa Monica Junior College. Proof: The utter lack of support of every student body activity. S. M. J. C. athletic teams have been forced to struggle through the season with practically no support —they have never had the support they deserved. The Samojac and Spin Drift have been kept alive only by the untiring efforts of a few who have had the interest of the school at heart. Student clubs are conspicuous by their absence, and the downright lack of schobl spirit is evidenced in the small attendance at student body assemblies. The fact that S. M. J. C. is a very young institution may have something to do with the lack of spirit — certainly it is no reflection on the faculty or the leaders of the school. Rather, the blame should be fixed on the student body...
Order With a Club [Newspaper Article] — Corsair — 13 May 1931
Order With a Club Order with a club! In the legislative bodies of the world the presiding officer is presented with a mace as a symbol of his authority. In the past, leaders of government have tried to use a club on any persons who attempted to question their authority as a dictator. In the present order of society the club method has become obsolete. Presidents and other executives, while having liberty to run the government, have not tried to usurp the rights of the voters. Revolutions have effectively checked the attempts' of executives to become despots. Today the wise leader realizes that he cannot be supreme. He knows that it is too easy to recall him from office. The recall has proved an efficient weapon in the hands of the voters, with which they can rout any attempt at usurping powers that should normally be in the hands of the people. Members of an organization do not like to use stringent methods to protest against poor government, but their resentment of an administratio...
Refrain [Newspaper Article] — Corsair — 13 May 1931
Refrain Daily, in this broad land of ours, we find millions of college students gathered in chapels and assemblies to sing their hymns of praise. Caps, gowns, diplomas and degrees —as those who are graduating slowly wend their way from their Alma Mater out into the bustle of the world, songs of praise and regret will rise from their throats and the throats of those who will graduate some other June will envelope this nation in a halo of golden notes of memory. Now, why shouldn't Santa Monica Junior College, an institution which is rapidly acquiring a place in the sun, have a part in this refrain? —M. L.
EXCHANGES [Newspaper Article] — Corsair — 13 May 1931

LETTER TO EDITOR [Newspaper Article] — Corsair — 13 May 1931
LETTER TO EDITOR (Editor's Note: The following letter is printed as received, without correction.) Sports Editor of the Samojac: In behalf of the Tennis Team os S. M. J. C., I am writing you this letter informing you that we do not appreciate your sarcastic write-up that appeared in the Samojac as of May 6, 1931. Evidently you haven't the intellectual insight to understand that although we were defeated by a score of 21-1, there is a possibility of us having put up a good fight. This can be proved by thefact that one third set of a match went to a score of 12-10, favor of Chaffey. We took a beating Saturday only after giving all we had, and we felt rather melancholy regarding it. We expected a little cooperation from the A. S. 8., through the power of the press, regarding our defeat, probably helping to strengthen our spirit for next Saturday, rather than a very narrow biased viewpoint from an individual breaking it down. It doesn't seem the proper thing to try to burn up any player...
WHO'S NEXT? [Newspaper Article] — Corsair — 13 May 1931
WHO'S NEXT? Well, well, little friends! Chris has been napping, but his sleepy eyes opened widely when his sharp ears heard something about "Clean-Up." Nosy Chris had once endeavored to "clean-up" on all the interesting people in this school, but the interesting ones, when cleaned were no longer interesting, and Chris took himself a nap. Frequently the case, my darlings, frequently the case. But to the play—. The "Money-Bag" There is Dorothy Douthat. We know little about her personally, but, somehow, we can well imagine her as the money-bag of a small community whose inhabitants say "yes" easily. She, even in our lowly school, has been known to "play the rhinoceros" just a little —but she's one swell actress —or, so we hear. And it is a good play. Politics abound —and redheaded Grover Bruce Harvey (emphasis on the Bruce) plays the political boss. Who, may I ask, could boss better, or be more politically inclined, than an Alpha Class President. However, even they live and learn, or w...
SAKI'S "WATCHED POT" BILLED FOR PLAYHOUSE [Newspaper Article] — Corsair — 13 May 1931
SAKI'S "WATCHED POT" BILLED FOR PLAYHOUSE Margaret Clarke, popular actress of the Pasadena Community Playhouse, whose many delightful delineations, including her recent appearance as "Lady Mary" in the production of " Her Shop," have made her a favorite of Playhouse audiences, will play opposite Ralph Freud in the worthcoming production of the merry comedy of feminine intrigue,/."The Watched Pot," by Saki, to be presented at the Playhouse May 14 to 23. In this very amusing play, Ralph Freud plays the role of an uncle who conspires with a young woman to marry his placid nephew, and who looks on complacently when three other women enter the contest to win the heir.

Miramar Beach Club Is Scene of Annual J. C. Track Banquet [Newspaper Article] — Corsair — 13 May 1931
Miramar Beach Club Is Scene of Annual J. C. Track Banquet Culminating the 1931 track season in a blaze of glory, the annual track banquet was held last Wednesday night at the Miramar Beach Club. Fully fifty-two members of the student body and faculty of the Santa Monica Junior College were in attendance, including two score or more Corsair lettermen, with each sport well represented. The feature of the evening was the election of track captain for 1932. Wendell Hammer was the stalwart Corsair chosen to guide the destinies of the 1932 team and, if the reception accorded the announcement of his election is a criterion, 1932 should see a championship cinder squad representing the Corsair institution. Hammer is well equipped to lead his team to victory. He was the iron man of the 1931 season, running the mile, 880, and an occasional 440. Among the celebrities present was Marshall Duffield, former Samohi star and U. S. C. all-American. Duffield spoke briefly on the importance of Jaysee m...
THE JOY OF BEING AN EDITOR [Newspaper Article] — Corsair — 13 May 1931
THE JOY OF BEING AN EDITOR Getting out this paper is no picnic, If we print jokes people say we are silly; If we don't, they say we are too serious. If we clip things from other papers, We are too lazy to write it down ourselves; If we don't we are stuck on our own stuff. If we stick close to the job all day, We ought to be out hunting up news. If we do get out and try to hustle, We ought to be on the job in the office. If we don't print contributions, We don't appreciate true genius; If we do, the paper is filled with junk. If we make a change in a fellow's writeup, We are too critical; If we don't we are asleep. Now, like as not, someone will say we clipped this from some other paper. WE DID! Dr. Ralph H. Bush, president of the Junior College Association of Southern California, will participate in the dedication of the new Junior College building at Chaffey, at 4:30 on May 22. The date is also the twentieth anniversary of the founding of Chaffey Union Hig+i School.

Gamma Class Presents First Assembly Program [Newspaper Article] — Corsair — 13 May 1931
Gamma Class Presents First Assembly Program The second assembly of the Gamma Class, presided over by Harrison Reno, was held Thursday. The program was varied and interesting enough to warrant enthusiastic applause. Gilman Rankin and Rachel Boswell, the two songsters of the College, charmed and held the audience. Alice Lloyd again lent her services as a whistling bird, and Perry Myers fought a persistent hum in the organ before deciding not to continue his part of the program. The two Dancing Dolls, so well advertised, tap-danced to the complete satisfaction of the entire group, and the assembly wa 3 concluded with the announcement of a Beta Class program to follow in a few weeks.
Botanists Take Trip [Newspaper Article] — Corsair — 13 May 1931
Botanists Take Trip Six ambitious botany students and Mr. H. L. Bauer left during the wee hours of Saturday morning in search of knowledge of yuccas. They took their way to Lake Arrowhead, where they stopped to regale themselves with a light repast. One of the party, Jack Haine, revealed his ancestry by scaling a pine tree in true jungle fashion, shaking down a shower of cones for specimens. Mr. Bauer photographed a great deal, and got some very good shots at yuccas, though they were not at their best for the season. The others on the party were Lois Bennett, Margaret Dutton, Frances Hudson and Pete Weil. "Don't you speak to him any more?" "No," replied the scholarly girl, "whenever I pass him I give him the geological survey." "Geological survey?" "Yes; that's what's commonly known as the stony stare." "Isn't it a shame about that policeman losing his eyesight? I suppose he is losing his place on the force." "Oh, no; he has been appointed as a special officer to hunt for stills." H...

Addresses Ministers [Newspaper Article] — Corsair — 13 May 1931
Addresses Ministers In a speech before the Ministerial Association of Santa Monica, Wednesday afternoon, Dr. Ralph H. Bush, Director of Santa Monica Junior College, in speaking on "The Teaching of Ideals," said that in discussing the development of ideals, the fact must be stressed that the desire must first be created; second, that a diagnosis of the situation must be made, in order to determine how to develop the ideal; third, a plan of action must be developed; fourth, the ideal must then be practiced until it becomes a habit.

GASTON SHUTS OUT CITRUS, 13 TO 0 [Newspaper Article] — Corsair — 13 May 1931
GASTON SHUTS OUT CITRUS, 13 TO 0 Corsair Twirler Allows But Four Clouts In Final Game Of Season; Entire Team Shows Up Brilliantly Given his big opportunity and making good at it. That was Pitcher Don Gaston all over, last Saturday afternoon. Gaston, pitching probably the best game seen hereabouts for several moons, shut out the Citrus Junior College Owls, 13 to 0, in the Corsairs' final and most brilliant triumph of the entire season. The game was just another affair which showed the scintillating capabilities of the Bucs from beginning to end. This black curly-haired youth, who simply was not to be denied Saturday, allowed but four scant hits. Up to the ninth inning the Owls had grabbed only two hits, one in the second and one in the sixth session. The other two bingles came in the ninth canto. That in itself show the air-tight nature of Gaston's twirling. Floyd Mishler's men might engage in a play-off tussle with the Redskins, to determine the Eastern division winner. Corsairs Err...
