TARGET PRACTICE [Newspaper Article] — Corsair — 13 May 1931
TARGET PRACTICE By Gus Vignolle At a banquet held last week at the Miramar Beach Club Wendell Hammer was elected captain for the track squad of 1932. Hammer, a diligent and hardworking miler, showed up quite well during the past cinder campaign, and should make a good captain next year. REVISE: Santa Monica was not defeated by Chaffey, 21-2, Brother Anakin; Santa Monica was defeated by Chaffey after the stalwart Corsairs had given their best. The score, however, was still 21 to 2. Last week in this column we praised the good pitching of Ernie Fickas, San Berdoo twirler. Today's pitching praise goes to a Corsair —Don Gaston. Don did not see much action earlier in the season, and in the final tiff against Citrus won out, 13-0. Not a bad way to make up for lack of action. It was certainly surprising to hear that Riverside J. C.'s nine—the outfit beaten by the Corsairs, 8 to 7 defeated the conference-leading San Berdoo Indians recently by a S-to-4 count. The tribe, it must be remembered...
BUC DIVOT DIGGERS DEFEAT CHAFFEY FOUR TO ONE [Newspaper Article] — Corsair — 13 May 1931
BUC DIVOT DIGGERS DEFEAT CHAFFEY FOUR TO ONE Winding up the season in a blaze of glory, Santa Monica Junior College's golfing quintet won its second set of matches last Saturday, by defeating the Chaffey Jaysee divot-diggers, 4 to 1. The matches took place on the Santa Monica municipal golf course. In winning over the Panthers, Mr. Phipps' club-wielders finished the 1931 season of golf 50-50, losing the first two sets of matches and coming back strong to triumph in the last two sets. After a mediocre start it appeared the Corsairs would have a tough time breaking into the winning side of the ledger, but hard work and diligent practice soon brought its reward. The first matches of the season saw the San Berdoo Indians register a 3-to-2 win over the Bucs, and the following week the Pomona Cossacks won by the same count; however, the tide finally changed. The next opponents, the Riverside Tigers, were defeated, 3 to 2, and then last Saturday the season was climaxed with a decisive vict...
Citrus Racquet Wielders In 14-9 Win Over Bucs [Newspaper Article] — Corsair — 13 May 1931
Citrus Racquet Wielders In 14-9 Win Over Bucs Meeting their third conference defeat of the season, Santa Monica Junior College's tennis team was thrashed 14-9 by the Citrus Jaysee racquet-wielders, Monday afternoon, at the Santa Monica municipal courts. The loss made it three for the season, while the Corsairs were victorious twice. The Buc racqueteers subdued the San Bernardino Indians and the Pomona J. C. Cossacks in previous competition. Riverside, Chaffey and Citrus conquered the Corsairs. First singles and second doubles were the only matches the Bucs could annex Monday. Captain Everett Hartung was victorious in the singles, while Ed Kelly and Anakin returned victors in the doubles. Citrus' Owls displayed considerable class throughout, and were able to claim the second, third and fourth singles and the second doubles. The Corsair golfers will travel to Citrus J. C., Saturday, to meet the Owls, provided they have a group of divot-diggers in that neck of the wood».
Santa Monica J. C. Mermen Conquered by Cub Paddlers [Newspaper Article] — Corsair — 13 May 1931
Santa Monica J. C. Mermen Conquered by Cub Paddlers Falling again before the strong Los Angeles Junior College swimming team, but by a smaller score this time, Coach Bill Osterholt's paddlers lost a 47-to-41 swimfest to the Cubs last Wednesday. The affair was held in the Miramar Club pool. The first meeting between these two outfits resulted in a decisive win for the Los Angeles men, the count being 56 to 36. In the second meeting, however, Osterholt's men showed improvement. The fact that they were victorious in five events confirms that statement. Herb Starr, brilliant Corsair agua-man, won two first spots —the 100-yard backstroke and the diving. James McHenry, consistent winner in the 100-yard breaststroke, again triumphed in his event. Santa Monica's medly relay team, composed of Starr, McHenry and Herb Wall, also looked hot in winning. The other relay quartet also won. It consisted of Michel, Donatelli, Henkes and Wall. The historical pageant, "The First Californians" is to be ...
Southern Cal. Swim To Be Held At Long Beach [Newspaper Article] — Corsair — 13 May 1931
Southern Cal. Swim To Be Held At Long Beach Should some of Santa Monica Junior College's up-and-coming swimmers live up to expectations it would not at all be surprising to see the Corsair natating troop ring up several markers in the impending Southern California Junior College annual swimming meet. This affair is to be held in the Long Beach Poly High School pool May 20, 5:00 p. m. All records established in this swimfest will be recorded as official, due to the fact that five A. A. U. official timers will be on hand to take care of the clocking duties. Coach Osterholt is entering James McHenry in the breast-stroke, Henkes in the 50-yard free style, and Herb Starr in the 100 and 220 free-style races. Both relay outfits will also splash agua. The medley consists of McHenry, Starr and Wall, while the other relay team will see Donatelli, Michel, Henkes and Wall doing the splashing. It is expected that McHenry, who is exceptionally good in the breast-stroke, will crack the old mark in...
First Jaysee Play Proves Artistic and Financial Success [Newspaper Article] — Corsair — 20 May 1931
First Jaysee Play Proves Artistic and Financial Success Santa Monica Junior College thespians made their initial bow Friday evening before a large and enthusiastic audience. "The Cleanup," a brilliant comedy satire from the pen of Barry Conners, and directed by P. G. Kepner, lived up to all advance publicity and according to many, far surpassed all expectations. The success of the Jaysee's first drama attempt revealed a world of talent available for future performances and assures at least two plays for next year. Grover Harvey carried off honors for the outstanding performance with his portrayal of Butch McKenna, the tough political boss. Harvey displayed much native ability, and his Irish brogue and flaming red hair did not detract from the attractiveness of his role. Bernice Steinman's interpretation of Mrs. Nina Buckmaster, woman's party candidate for mayor, was excellent and showed remarkable polish and finish. Mr. Buckmaster, Nina's domineering husband, was played by Burton An...
Feminino Corsairs play Tennis at FullertonJ. C. [Newspaper Article] — Corsair — 20 May 1931
Feminino Corsairs play Tennis at FullertonJ. C. The Junior Colleges of Southern California met at Fullerton last Saturday, May 16, to participate in a tennis tournament. Santa Monica sent one doubles and two singles entrants. After the first round of matches the winners and losers were separated and played in two different groups. The doubles team — Joy Rutherford and Betty Stewart —lost both of their sets after a hard fought battle. The match with Santa Ana J. C. went into three sets. Enid Botterill lost her first match to Miss Wynne of L. A. J. C. Miss Botterell's strong drives kept her opponent playing back of the base line during much of the time, but Miss Wynne was never caught off guard at any time. Lucile Williams also lost her first match, and was placed in the second group, where, after drawing a bye, she triumphed over her Riverside opponent in two straight sets. In the afternoon the final rounds were played, and Lucile lost to Long Beach J. C., 8-6, 6-4.
Gamma Class Gives Dance for Graduates [Newspaper Article] — Corsair — 20 May 1931
Gamma Class Gives Dance for Graduates As a fitting farewell to the Delta class of the summer of 1931, the Gammas are honoring them with an informal dance in the girls' gymnasium, on May 30, Saturday evening, at eight o'clock. The entire student body is invited to attend this gala affair, which marks the end of Junior College activities for the semester. There will be no admission charge, and each student is entitled to bring one guest on his student card. The passwords are fun and gaety! In the scheme of decoration, pastel colors will run riot to the tune of Douglas Freeman's eight-piece orchestra, which will supply the music for dancing. Those who do not care to dance will find bridge tables in the patio, so that everyone should find something of interest, even though his only interest happens to be food. All students have long wished a dance which was truly a dance, and this affair promises to be the fulfillment of these past futile desires. The various committees are industriousl...

Bush, Director of the Junior College, however, in a statement today, said that the figures so far this year far exceed those for the same time last year.

Sometime later this week Dr. Bush will address the seniors of the Santa Monica High School on the same subject.

Graduation [Newspaper Article] — Corsair — 20 May 1931
Graduation Throughout all the records of history we find that when any great event took place it usually did so in the presence of multitudes of people who attended primarily because it was of vital interest to them, and secondly because they wanted to have the distinction of being present at such a memorable occasion. Now, in Santa Monica, our own fair city, a great historical event is about to take place, for truly it is the only one of its kind in the city's history. Furthermore, this auspicious occasion, like all others, is of vital interest to those who will see it, for upon it depends to a large extent the future welfare of our country. This great event, as the reader has perhaps surmised, is the graduation of the first Junior College class in Santa Monica. Of course, the reader will immediately say that these statements are somewhat exaggerated. Upon further thought, however, they are found to contain quite a few grains of truth, for is it not true that many of these students...
