Departments Make Use of Card Index [Newspaper Article] — Corsair — 10 December 1929
Departments Make Use of Card Index The chemistry laboratory has eight cabinets, two large drawers for chemicals and apparatus, which are arranged alphabetically on shelves on the cabinets. They are catalogued on cards in the same way that library cards are indexed. With the aid of this index, chemicals and apparatus can be located in a short time. Each package containing chemicals is also marked with the name of the chemical and the number of the cabinet and shelf where it belongs. In this way all chemicals used by students can be quickly returned to their proper places. Students are now equipped with proper apparatus which they must return at the end of the course, and pay for any they may break. When they need new apparatus they have to fill out and sign a printed blank and hand it to'the instructor. In this way the apparatus is kept track of. A similar plan of card indexing is followed in the physics department.

Explains Grade Method [Newspaper Article] — Corsair — 10 December 1929
Explains Grade Method Mr. Phipps explained to his classes last week the method of marking which he uses. After a few years' study trying to find a fair system of grading, Mr. Phipps has adopted his present method. He grades accoring to their marks in problems, daily written, examinations, laboratory work and class recitation. By this method the teacher has no say in the matter, as it is entirely mathematical. Failures count nothing. In some systems the number of failures are subtracted from the rest of the marks.
More Rooters Needed [Newspaper Article] — Corsair — 10 December 1929
More Rooters Needed We realize that the purpose of this column is not to engage in complimenting individuals, yet an action of some students necessitates the writing of this article. At the basketball game last Friday with the California Christian College freshman team, the supporters of the Corsair five were surprised by the arrival of three femenine members of the S. M. J. C. student body. We admit that maybe Los Angeles was a long way from Santa Monica, yet that is hardly an excuse for more rooters not being there, sowe wish to compliment the Misses Arlene Mcßride, Bell Waltz and Roxine Waltz on their fidelity to our team.
Boost the Dance [Newspaper Article] — Corsair — 10 December 1929
Boost the Dance The first Junior College "Mix" will be a success! How can it be anything else, when students are offered an opportunity to become better acquainted mutually than ever? To leave school- for the holidays with everyone feeling that everyone else is his friend would be a truly great step in the accomplishment of fraternal unity in the student body. Among the foolishly superstitious (yes, even in this age) there is a fixed belief that Friday the thirteenth is a very unlucky day —one of those days on which something always seems to go wrong. Belief creates conditions, and the sooner people forget this silly thought, and learn to pay no attention to the unpleasant trivialities present at any affair, the sooner it will become an idle notion of the past. Members on the entertainment committee have worked hard to provide completely for the enjoyment of those attendant. Good music will "lend wings to your feet." All the enjoyment which a gay young crowd affords itself will find...
Leadership [Newspaper Article] — Corsair — 10 December 1929
Leadership Throughout the ages the nations of the world have cried aloud for conscientious and courageous leadership. Give us a chief, a general, a president, or even a king, has resounded down the long corridors of time. In our beloved America, where all true Americans are rightly proud of their democratic form of government, we hear the same continuous cry of leadership. In fact, we practically admit that without proper leadership our country could not flourish and prosper the way it is doing at this present moment. It does not necessarily follow, however, that leadership should establish itself in high positions. It does not mean, for example, that only those elected to the highest office in the land can, or always should truly lead. No; true leadership is an invisible form of leadership, the need of which the whole world is coming more and more to understand and appreciate, and it is therefore a much higher form of leadership than mere personality. It is the leadership of though...

STAGE-SCREEN "Condemned." Ronald Colman and Ann Harding in a picture with a new angle. The horrors of Devil's Island arc realistically portrayed in this fine picture. "So Long Letty."

This coupled with a quaint brand of E...
HUMOR [Newspaper Article] — Corsair — 10 December 1929
HUMOR Eric: Would you marry an idiot for the sake of money? Regina: Oh, this is so sudden! Flappers should be seen but not hard She was only a math prof's daughter but she knew her limits. Frank W.: What's the difference in going on a party and to a party? Frank M.: The party. "I hope you'll dance with me tonight, Mr. Jones." "Oh, rather! I hope you don't think I come here merely for pleasure!" In most Eastern countries, we read, women are discarding their veils in order to be like Western women. We should like to add that they'll have to discard considerably more than that. First Kid: Gee, Jimmy, when I went by your house this morning, I heard somebody swearin' somethin' awful." Second Kid: Aw, that was my dad. He was late for church, and couldn't find his hymn book. Lady: I want to see some gloves for my eight-year-old daughter, please. Clerk: Yes, madam; white kid? Lady: Sir! Oliver: When your girl confessed her love for you, what did you do? Stan: Oh, I pressed her for details. ...

Girls Play Day At Glen dale Is Social Success " Hi, Pat; how did you recover from that rough basketball game we played at Glendale J. C.?" "Oh, I'msip and able to be around, but I was in bed most of the day yesterday. How do you feel?" "I feel about the same way; but we had a keen time just the same." These were some of the results of the W. A. A. playday at Glendale J. C. The playday opened with a short talk from one of the instructors of U. C. L. A., who gave a very interesting talk on hockey. The first sport to be played off was tennis. Miss Arline Mcßride and Miss Belle Waltz won the tennis doubles against L. A. J. C. Our tennis singles lost by a verv close score. Our basketball team played a very strenuous game, but without avail. The girls that played tennis had to play basketball also, because of the small number of girls that could participate. Luncheon was served on the front lawn. The tables were decorated with various colored balloons. In the afternoon a lovely program wa...
