Orange and gray figured prominently in the display of colors. One supporter of the Venice endeavors scrambled up on the high school building here and placed the Blue and White on high.

Sport Randoms [Newspaper Article] — Corsair — 26 November 1929
Sport Randoms The Golden Bear of Berkeley was sitting on top of the world last week —the acme of football perfection. This week they wouldn't be able to schedule a game of ping pong. No allusion toward Price and his gang, but they were outplayed from stem to stern by a very much alive Stanford Indian. • Ordinarily this would put a team on the rocks, and in this case eliminate the New Year's Day chance, but California wants this' chance in the Rose Bowl to settle some points in the minds of a great many Northerners. They will most likely get the call because the attraction last year's freak game created and the determination of the team to vindicate itself in the eyes of its followers. Purdue is favored by most of the California men for the opposition in the Pasadena classic. Howard Jones' football machine almost duplicated the Bruin score when they dug up the Idaho "Potatoes" football tearp with a 72-0 score. The Thanksgiving football menu has the earmarks of a tasty affair. Coach B...

Vikings of Samohi Scuttle Gondoliers [Newspaper Article] — Corsair — 26 November 1929
Vikings of Samohi Scuttle Gondoliers In a game almost as spectacular as a movie thriller, the championship-bound Vikings of Samohi defeated the Gondoliers of Venice by the close score of 7-6. The game, held on the Venetians' field, was played with great difficulty, due to the tendency of the spectators to crowd on to the field after each play. Harold "Wild Irish" Forney and Hal Baida were the stars of Samohi's backfield, while Gilman Rankin and Loien Beckley were the stellar players in the line. Ward Afner, the dusky phantom of Venice, proved to be the star of the Gondoliers by running back the kickoff of the second half 85 yards to a touchdown. Failure at conversion spelled the downfall of Venice. The Gondoliers seemed to display the best brand ok football, but lacked the fighting spirit of the Vikings that has been so prevalent in Samohi's previous games this season. Samohi's chances for the Bay League football championship were sorely disrupted last Friday when she was beaten by ...

However, the spirit exemplified by all of the men of the student body has made it easier for the Coach to keep up the standard of work as required by the other junior colleges in the state. The sophs of Central Jaysee were humiliated in the traditional soph. vs. frosh battle. The more powerful freshman tug-of-war team defeated . the light soph group, ducking them twice in irrefutable defeat. —Central Campus. Don't forg...

Debaters Beaten by Dons, Tartars In Close Contests AT COMPTON [Newspaper Article] — Corsair — 10 December 1929
Debaters Beaten by Dons, Tartars In Close Contests AT COMPTON Opening the current debate season against Compton Junior College at Compton, Lucille Williams and Sanford Watkins lost to the visitors by a score of 191 to 190 last Thursday evening. The local team was placed at a decided disadvantage through the fact that only one judge was used,, this system being necessitated by the inability to secure additional judges. The Corsair team upheld the negative, and their work is to be complimented, as they were debating before a rival audience and also the task of representing Santa Monica Junior College in her first intercollegiate activity. In both the debate at Compton and the one at home, the only decided advantage being held by the opposing teams was in the line of experience. Santa Monica was obliged to enter both contests with practically no practice, this being necessitated by the action of Riverside Junior College in failing to meet the Corsair teams in a scheduled practice debat...

Elections Prove J. C. Popularity [Newspaper Article] — Corsair — 10 December 1929
Elections Prove J. C. Popularity That the Santa Monica public is thoroughly behind the Junior College here was demonstrated convincingly in the recent city election. The only member on the board of education who was defeated for re-election is the man who had so strenuously opposed wasting money on such a mad venture as a junior college. He not only opposed the junior college as an unnecessary expense, but believed that the teachers' salaries were beyond reason. The public's answer to this man is a complete final statement of public opinion on the junior college question —they stand behind the movement.
