Choosing [Newspaper Article] — Corsair — 20 May 1931
Choosing This week marks the time for the nominations of officers for the coming year. This is a momentous time in the history of this Junior College for from our midst are going all those who have had experience in determining the policy of our school. We hear faint echoes about some kind of a spirit called "school spirit." If we have ever had any, now is the time to show it. It behooves every member of the student body to weigh carefully the matter of whose petition he will sign, and for whom he is going to vote. The ability, integrity, dependability and co-operative ability of every candidate should be the characteristics upon which a decision as to his merit is reached. Upon the people chosen will rest the responsibility of determining the school policy for next year. In order for this policy to be of the highest standard, people with the highest qualifications must be chosen. Mary Smith should stop and think twice before she votes for Jane just because she is a good friend of h...
EXCHANGES [Newspaper Article] — Corsair — 20 May 1931
EXCHANGES The first college paper was published in 1810 at Dartmouth College, and was called "The Dartmouth Gazette." Freshmen at Wheaton use a novel method of announcing class elections. Five "escaped convicts" are rounded up by an "emergency police" squad and led to "prison." "Sentences" are pronounced on each new officer. To make the show more realistic, the enthusiastic frosh ended the ceremony with a "prison riot." The University of Kansas is discussing barring automobiles from the campus. This is due to the death of four students in an accident. Long skirts are compulsory this year at the University of Idaho. Girls returning after hours at Northwestern University are required to make up double the time on their next night out. A Yale alumnus believes that a New York branch of the university at the Hotel Biltmore would be a solution for the "week-end habit" prevalent in many Eastern universities. Mount Holyoke College is this semester trying a new system of examinations. Senior...

CAMPUS CHUCKLES [Newspaper Article] — Corsair — 20 May 1931
CAMPUS CHUCKLES "I haven't seen my long lost brother for twenty years." "Would you recognize him if you saw him on the street?" "Sure! He wears a blue striped shirt and brown necktie." Traffic Cop: Say, Bozo, don't you know this is a safety zone? Austin Driver: Of course I do, officer; that's why I drove in here. Ed: When I was in Alaska I spent all my time hunting bear. Co-Ed: Oh, dear! Didn't you got awfully cold? Dr. Bush: You can tell a girl's character by her clothes. Mr. Wallbank: Nonsense! I am sure girls have more character than that. She: I want a little pink tablet. Druggist: What's the trouble. She: I want to write a letter. Girls, when they went out to swim, Once dressed like Mother Hubbard; Now they hold a bolder whim — They dress more like her cupboard.

Hain't you heered that in the social swim the wimmin try to outstrip each other?" Stude: I don't ...
"Medea," Greek Drama, To Be Given at U. C. L. A. [Newspaper Article] — Corsair — 20 May 1931
"Medea," Greek Drama, To Be Given at U. C. L. A. Tickets for "Medea," the fourteenth annual Greek drama in English, to be presented at the University of California at Los Angeles May 22 and 23, have been received and distributed by Mr. Coulson. These are special student tickets which, when presented at the box office, entitle the holder to a twenty-five cent reduction on the dollar or the seventy-five cent seats. Since the "Greek unities" have been so frequently mentioned in various English classes around here, it might be a good idea to remember Friday and Saturday as an opportunity to enjoy a practical presentation of these troublesome details.

WHO'S NEXT? [Newspaper Article] — Corsair — 20 May 1931
WHO'S NEXT? Dere frends: We weren't going to snoop anymore, but when we noticed Enid "Butterball" Botterill indulging in the good old end-of-the-year apple polishing, we were moved to remind her that Chris may be sleepy, but he's not unconscious. We know how it is, "Eny"; when Spring comes, so does love, and grades do the logical drop. But, deary me, applepolishing and cold-hearted married professors do not combine easily and well. Something always curdles. Yep! And something else must be wrong; Scotty Sterling seems to be wending his way alone. Maybe "Butterball" is now discriminating, and then maybe not, but she's not a bad egg —and we kinda like her. And Bernard Rogers still pursues her — we mean Reginalda Bradshaw —says we, explaining just as if you didn't already know. Such constancy is surprising in this day of flaming youth and infidelity. Anyhow, we remember Bernard from years ago; a chubby little rascal who presided and controlled an unrully organization with an iron hand. ...

Skill Displayed By Actor In Safely Landing Plane [Newspaper Article] — Corsair — 20 May 1931
Skill Displayed By Actor In Safely Landing Plane John Conzelman, who played the part of Willie in "The Clean Up," has accomplished quite a feat in aviation, according to this month's issue of "Western Flying," wMch says in part: "Jack Conzelman, one day not so long ago, must have thought of Lindbergh, when he dropped a wheel. He was warned. . . Lindbergh came down safely, so would he! And Conzelman brought the ship down to within a few fees:--of the field- Banking to one side, he settled down on one wheel, rolling thus MiLtil the ship ilost speed. Whereupon it righted itself, dug the axle into the earth, tkep came to rest with only two ribs of the wing broken." When questioned Jack •osly says, "You should have seen the look ,C&gt;p the face of rpy passenger."

Writes "Alma Mater " [Newspaper Article] — Corsair — 20 May 1931
Writes "Alma Mater " It may be of interest to the future warblers of the college "Alma Mater" to know that the "all-around girl of the school," Joy Rutherford, wrote both the words and music of that song. That such musical talent should go unrewarded and unnoticed in a school of this size is surprizing, but that the girl herself should be coy about it, is a shock. Anyway, a word of thanks to the deserving is not only a .pleasant duty, but a necessary one. More power to you, Joy!

It May Not Be True But: [Newspaper Article] — Corsair — 20 May 1931
It May Not Be True But: Rov Jacobson's hair is really naturally curly, even though he does come from Beverly Hills, the city of permanent waves, and so on. Mr. Osterholt might be breaking traffic rules. He made Exposition Park from Santa Monica in 17 minutes in that teakettle of his. Richard Arsneau has developed quite a mystery complex. He wears a perpetual "touch-me-not" attitude. Come on, Arsneau, give the fairer sex a break and take them riding in that good-looking roadster of your».
TARGET PRACTICE [Newspaper Article] — Corsair — 20 May 1931
TARGET PRACTICE By Gus Vljjnolle As the semester is approaching its end, it is only fitting and proper that we mention and enumerate the athletic accomplishments of the past year. Truly it may be that as far as we're concerned all in the athletic line was a success here at Santa Monica Junior College. When Santa Monica Junior College commenced its athletic activities in September, 1929, about 125 students comprised the total enrollment of the school. That was quite a low figure, and to compete with other experienced junior colleges who had seen action in sports for several semesters would be, and in fact did turn out to be exceedingly tough. For a long time the road was rough and thorny. To other jaysees in the circuit the Corsairs were merely regarded as the weak sisters of the outfit, only a soft touch, or a tanker (?). Buc teams encountered several strong teams from other schools, and it was plain to see that the Santa Monicans were handicapped —-the school was in its infancy. Wi...
Composite Score Shows Work Done by Baseball Men in League Tussles [Newspaper Article] — Corsair — 20 May 1931
Composite Score Shows Work Done by Baseball Men in League Tussles Baseball festivities for Santa Monica Junior College have been over for a bit more than a week, and to the minds of many Corsair students comes the question of how the individuals on the nine finished up, what was accomplished by each man on the team, and how everything looked in general. Chiefly for this reason a composite score for the five conference games is published. An ardent Corsair athletic follower and baseball fan of the first water, Mr. Hickman, father of Wally, brilliant third baseman, has compiled this composite score. It is interesting to note that Coach Floyd Mishler's apple-sockers lost only one game and triumphed in four other conference tussles. The Corsairs rolled up 46 runs in conference competition, as compared to 16 tallies brought across the rubber by the Bucs' opponents. An average of about nine runs per game for the Buc horsehiders isn't the least bit bad. The following is the composite score...
