Students Asked To Use Cars On Election Day The bond issue comes up this next Tuesday. It has been found that a great many prospective voters have no way of getting to the polls.

Physics Instructor Has Eventful Summer Trip [Newspaper Article] — Corsair — 16 September 1931
Physics Instructor Has Eventful Summer Trip "Vacations may be O. K. for most people, but they're just poison to me," says Mr. C. F. Phipps. Whether those are the actual words of J. C.'s popular physics instructor is uncertain. Yet we will wager that they pretty accurately express his views on the subject, following a series of rather disastrous experiences during the summer. When the end of the long, tedious year came, last June 12, prospects for the summer vacation looked bright to Mr. Phipps." For many weeks he had been waiting eagerly, sharing with the students perhaps more than ever before their anxiety for the advent of the enticing, joyous surcease from the year's labors —vacation. Whether that sympathy proved a boon to harried physicists is a matter of conjecture. This summer's vacation was to be an unusual one for Mr. Phipps. For years lie had not visited his former home, De Kalb, 111., and this summer he was to realize that cherished dream, driving through with Mrs. Phipps ...
Book Store Announces Arrival Of J. C. Books [Newspaper Article] — Corsair — 16 September 1931
Book Store Announces Arrival Of J. C. Books Word has arrived from F. E. Lord, manager of the bookstore and soda fountain, that Junior College students may now be supplied with almost anything in the line of school supplies. Lately the store has done a rushing business, endeavoring to give the best of service at all times; however, Mr. Lord stated, some of the clerks are new and do not know the stock very well, therefore they are apt to overlook some of the supplies. If, when a student fails to get the desired service, he will see Mr. Lord personally, the trouble may in all probability be remedied. Among other services to be rendered by the school store is free ink service for fountain pens; also, themes done on plain unpunched paper may be taken to the bookstore to be punched and bound free Mr. Lord made special mention of the fact that extra fine quality theme folders are now available which are better than the manilla folders. There are plenty of extra zo-ology instruments to repl...

Bonds Will Pass If Students Work [Newspaper Article] — Corsair — 16 September 1931
Bonds Will Pass If Students Work Students of this college are fortunate in that they have an opportunity between now and the twenty-second of this month to help educate the people of Santa Monica regarding the school bonds, whose acceptance by the voters means the application of a stimulus or the more sordid application of a deadening drug to the field of higher education. As supporters of this bond issue you are douSly fortunate in having for listeners citizens who possess the willingness to support by vote and by financial contribution any project for which there is need. It is well known that the voters of this city are not selfish, but it is also well known that the men and women of this city as individuals must be convinced of the soundness and benefits involving the expenditure of the city's finances. To repeat, the bond issue will pass with the necessary majority, providing the voters are convinced of the unwholesome conditions now existing in material equipment. Students of ...

WHO'S NEXT? [Newspaper Article] — Corsair — 16 September 1931
WHO'S NEXT? Well, well, my little playmates, whoever thought we'd be together again; but, following the precedent once established, we must, of necessity, give the new officers the good old sizsle. As you all know by this time, George Drake, once famed "Fighting George," has stepped into the confines of the presidency. More power to him, and all our sympathies. He will have his troubles, as have all other aspiring politicians. Anyway, he likes us, and we like him, which is more than can be said of other members of this school —much mori! Now, don't feel that we're mad so early in the year; we're not. Georgie is a good boy and should be a swell president. Bye the bye, he's the only man, once a member of the Commission, that is returning to that Hall of Doom. We leave Georgie, not that we want to, but there are so many other prominent men in school; yes, and women too! Speaking of Women Speaking of women reminds us —Virginia Cargill, Commissioner of Records. Dear me, seems like once V...
Women Predominate In Faculty Families [Newspaper Article] — Corsair — 16 September 1931
Women Predominate In Faculty Families Perhaps it is because of the predominance of men as Junior College instructors that the faculty families seem to be overrun by women. Mr. Elmer C. Sandmeyer, head of the History department, rises supremely alone with his two sons, of whom he is inordinately proud. Especially so, since Mr. and Mrs. Walter Wallbank announced the summer arrival of a daughter, and Mr. and Mrs. E. R. Coulson did the same! Roll call would go something like this: Dr. Ralph Bush —two girls; Mrs. Henrietta Cejudo —one girl; Mr. Paul Kepner —one girl; Mr. E. R. Coulson —two girls; Mr. Paul Kurtz — three girls; Mr. W. R. B. Osterholt—one girl; Mr. Harry Bauer —one girl; Mr. Phipps—one girl; Mr. V. H. Brown — three girls; Mr. John Dulin —none; Mr. Stromer —none; Dr. C. G. Bradford — none. Mr. E. C. Sandmeyer, sad enough to relate, is flanked on either side by Mr. Stickle and Mr. Larwood, part-time instructors, who between them have two boys. Mr. Sandmeyer's personal record ...

A. room, where interruptions ! that characterized last year's board meetings will be no longer necessary. The governing is in the hands of experienced people, so this year promises to be one of organized women's sport.
