New Exchange File Received by Paper [Newspaper Article] — Corsair — 7 January 1930
New Exchange File Received by Paper A:i addition to the equipment of the SaMoJaC which will prove of much value has been a file fixed to the wall of the Faculty conference room, wherein may be. kept all the exchanges received from the various colleges and high schools. Up to the present time these exchanges have been strewn over the large desk in the room, causing confusion and little semblance of that neatness which should prevail in any newspaper office, maybe. The paper is now trying to find some vacant space which could be turned into an office. This would be quite a relief to the faculty who must correct exams while copy is being pounded out by the zealous staff, or arguments as to the amount of space which should be allotted to the may pole dance are going on between the editor and the society editress. With the arrival of many new students in the coming semester it is expected that the number of reporters now working on the SaMoJaC will be augmented and it will become necessa...

C. basketball team left the Long Beach institution last Friday night on the short end of a 29-26 score they left a long lasting impression on the Viking squad, of the cleanest scrapping outfit this side of Norway.

Fifteen seconds before the final gun, however, Long Beach made one more basket to put the game on ice. It took twentyfive of the Viking Squad to turn the trick and the size of the men put Santa Monica at a marked disadvantage in the tip-off and following through on the shots.

Be At Santa Ana and Beat Santa Ana [Newspaper Article] — Corsair — 7 January 1930
Be At Santa Ana and Beat Santa Ana In four days Santa Monica Junior College will embark on her athletic career. This will be a great event for all, as this is the first time we have entered a team in any league. It is impossible for any school to put out athletic teams without the whole-hearted support of its student body. This is indeed true of Santa Monica. So far we have had five basketball games. At no game previous to the one with Long Beach were more than five rooters in attendance. Long Beach was slightly better —about ten rooters turning out. Long Beach rooters filled the stands. This should also have been true of Santa Monica rooters. Saturday night Santa Monica Junior College goes to Santa Ana Junior College to play its first league game and one week later goes to Compton. Owing to the distance away of Santa Ana a scarcity of Santa Monica students can be expected, but everybody should be at the Compton game. Support the team! Get behind it and back it up! It is your team a...
