Spanish Club Holds Second Get-together [Newspaper Article] — Corsair — 7 January 1930
Spanish Club Holds Second Get-together The newly formed Spanish Club held its second meeting on Thursday evening at the home of Betty Livingston. The evening was featured by the election of permanent officers, with Eduardo Vi 11arreal winning over "Captain" Billy Athey for the office of president. The office of vice-president was won by Eric Moore. Margaret Johnson read a paper on the Aztec Indian tribe. Evidently believing that there is nothing like a good nightmare to help the night hours pass, Miss Johnson recounted the famous Aztec human sacrifices and their methods of self torture in great detail. Mrs. Cejudo, faculty sponsor, then related the famous heart sacrifice wherein victim's heart is extracted while he is still among the living. Mrs. Cejudo also related her experiences at an Indian fiesta in which a drunken Indian shot at her but fortunately missed. Following this the rest of the evening was devoted to card games and dancing. Only those suffering from fallen arches or d...

Dr. Ralph H. Bush Tells J. C. History [Newspaper Article] — Corsair — 7 January 1930
Dr. Ralph H. Bush Tells J. C. History Dr. Ralph H. Bush in a talk before a Santa Monica women's service club gave many interesting facts regarding junior colleges. According to Dr. Bush, Santa Monica is larger than any of the junior colleges of the state were, except two, when they were organized. Of 35 junior colleges in the state, S. M. is rated 17. Also, out of 131 junior colleges in the U. S., S. M. is 46. Dr. Bush also showed that the junior college movement may be compared to the high school movement of the '9o's. Other important points about the junior college movement were discussed by Dr. Bush. BEAT SANTA ANA Salinas High School sent several representatives to the journalistic reception held at Stanford. —Flashlight.

The Semester in Review [Newspaper Article] — Corsair — 7 January 1930
The Semester in Review From the viewpoint of the Santa Monica Junior College the year cannot be very easily reviewed. Occupying only one-third of the year 1929, the review can go no farther back than September. Yet in the short space of time much has been done that is worthy of mention.

Santa Monica officially accepted in J. C. conference. Student body elections held. Constitution accepted. A. W. S. officers elected. Debate squad chosen. Entertainment commission selected. J.

HUMOR [Newspaper Article] — Corsair — 7 January 1930
HUMOR Helen S.: Whaddaya think about it, Bill; do you think a woman should aspire to public office? Bill H.: Heck, no; give me a private office every time. Stan Fish says that bravery is something that makes a fellow lose the use of his legs when he wants to run. Mr. Coulson: Now, here we have a comparatively new word —"flapper." Can anyone tell me the gender of that word? Kenneth D.: Sure—nuderi No matter how crooked a flapper is, she still has a little honor. Frank W.: Have you a zither! Alden B.: Naw; but I've got a couple of brothers. Lady Visitor: Remember, "stone walls do not a prison make." No. 13131313: Then I've been fooled for eight years, ladv.

Cabinet Seeks Re-Election [Newspaper Article] — Corsair — 7 January 1930
Cabinet Seeks Re-Election \\ ith the approach of election time, the present indication is that the present student body officers are going to seek re-election. It is not the purpose of this paper to influence the voters —the main aim of this paper is to be neutral in all occasions of this sort —yet the student body could do no finer act than to return each officer to his respective office for another term. The student body as a whole does not know the effort that has been put forth by the present cabinet in formulating some semblance of unity for S. M. J. C. to govern itself by. This fact must be remembered: many hours of time which could be used for other purposes have been devoted to the student body by the cabinet. They have moulded the associated students into a compact, self-acting unit. They have guided the student body through a period which will never again be experienced by any other cabinet, that of getting a new school under way. And the best example of esteem which the s...
Women Should Be Candidates [Newspaper Article] — Corsair — 7 January 1930
Women Should Be Candidates Once more election time rolls around. Prior to the election held at the beginning of this semester, the SaMoJaC cautioned each and every student to vote intelligently at the polls. Personal animosities and friendships should be forgotten in selecting real worthwhile, capable, officers for the coming semester. Another thing to be guarded against is the electing of all men for the different offices. Women have just as much right as men to hold office,, and they should take advantage of this. Too often the ladies are content to sit back until after the elections and then voice their opinion of the officers elected. If no women are elected they have only themselves to blame, unless there is some good reason why a woman would not be acceptable in that office for which she has run.
BOOK REVIEW [Newspaper Article] — Corsair — 7 January 1930
BOOK REVIEW "Dodsworth," by Sinclair Lewis, is far and away the best thing he has ever written, and not so very far nor so very much away from the best things that anvbody has ever written. The book came very close to being named "The Charming Mrs. Dodsworth," but, while that elegant and complacent lady occupies a position of prominence in its pages, the story is the story of Sam Dodsworth. Just as "Main Street" exposed the inwardness of American life, "Babbitt" the bones of American business, and "Elmer Gantry" the hypocrisy of American evangelism, so "Dodsworth" reveals the picture of American business success, American relations with Europe, and American marriage. In this book Lewis has switched from his usual merciless lampooning of Babbitt into actually defending him. He has, as it were, put a lamp in the window of the ivory tower from which he once flung the despised critter, and Babbitt has crept out of the cold exile of mofonity, into the warmth of Mr. Lewis' sentimental, un...
STAGE-SCREEN [Newspaper Article] — Corsair — 7 January 1930
STAGE-SCREEN "Oh, Susanna." A gorgeous romance of the gold rush days. Carlotta King is the beautiful heroine of this musical play. "The Cat and the Canary." Dale Winter clicks in the most exciting play ever written. She packs them in every performance. "The Boomerang." This is a lot better than it was on the screen, where it was titled "The Love Doctor." Tom Moore is "the reason. "Hit the Deck." This is quite some bit better than it was on the stage. More songs, and more beautiful scenes are the reason. Polly Walker steals the show. "Show of Shows." This picture entirely in Technicolor is the most beautiful, lavish and colorful spectacle in the history of motion pictures. This is absolutely the best revue to date. "Diamond LiP." Take a trip back to the gay days before prohibition with Mae West. As the slightly manhandled heroine she gives a fine piece of acting. Although rather raw in spots, the public seems to eat this sort of '

Junior College's Dance Is Success [Newspaper Article] — Corsair — 7 January 1930
Junior College's Dance Is Success The Junior College Dance Friday, 13, proved a pleasant success. Students and faculty showed the true school spirit by turning out well. Mr. William Henn had a varied program arranged, which mixed everyone up, so to speak. In this way those timid ones too shy to dance with anyone else but their partners were forced into the company of the gay young belles in spite of themselves. Miss Adele Wynn interrupted the dancing to present Dr. Ralph E. Bush with the college's present for his birthday. Doctor showed a true quality of a great man when he generously presented his twin brother of the evening, Joe Wonder, with a piece of his cake. President W T allace Hickman also came in for a share of cake, his birthday being, the day after. During the rest of the evening horns and such things were distributed to the attendants, and the dance proceeded noisily to a happy, successful ending. The chairman of the entertainment committee, Miss Adele Wynn, and her coll...
