Santa Monica Rates High In Sport World [Newspaper Article] — Corsair — 21 January 1930
Santa Monica Rates High In Sport World During the year 1929 Santa Monica has made her mark in the sport world. She was outstanding in both archery and tennis. The sporting staff of the Christian Science Monitor has compiled a list of all of the United States Champions of the past year. Santa Monica is represented by the champion Mrs. Audrey Grubbs in the Women's archery contest. The men's and women's teams of Santa Monica also head the list. In tennis Johnny Doeg of Santa Monica and George Lott of Chicago share the doubles honors. Jay Cohn is the best in l is class in both the singles and doubles, sharing the latter laurels with C. P. Hunt of San Francisco. California, as a whole, is holding her own with 75 percent of the representatives of the 40 sports entered having California as their home, and the majority are from Southern California. There must be something in this land of sunshine. BEAT L. A. J. C. —

Call Issued for More J. C. Debaters Mr. Walter Wallbank is not satisfied with the number of students who have signified a desire to participate in the second junior college debate, to be held on March 7.

How About Athletics? [Newspaper Article] — Corsair — 21 January 1930
How About Athletics? Perhaps in no other way does a college gain a more enviable reputation, than through the success of its various athletic activities. At present the Santa Monica Junior College has the required material for a most successful season, in that it has a hard-fighting and well-coached basketball team. This team, no matter how strong its fighting spirit may be, must, however, have the whole-hearted support of the entire student body, if it is to emblazen the name of Corsairs before the eyes of all Southern California junior cplleges. With an active and enthusiastic yell leader, provided the present supply of yells is increased, there is no reason why this college cannot attain its desired goal.—M. F.
On Climbing [Newspaper Article] — Corsair — 21 January 1930
On Climbing Honest endeavor has often been likened unto mountain climbing, where every attained peak has shown a higher one in its turn, thereby hiding the actual summit of the mountain. Here our symbolic lesson induces us to consider the definition of achievement and ail well-merited success. Is it to sit down with folded hands, elated at climbing one peak of the mountain, however steep it may have been? No, it cannot be. We feel ourselves as on the "I.addei of Saint Augustine," and see "The distant mountains that uprear Their solid bastions to the skies, Are crossed by pathways that appear As we to higher levels rise." Again, we caa agree with Matthew Arnold, who with his keen desire to describe ideals wrote: "Resolve to be thyself; and know that he Who finds himself, loses his miserv." —M. F.
Let Him Who Is Without Sin [Newspaper Article] — Corsair — 21 January 1930
Let Him Who Is Without Sin Colleges throughout the country were interested in the report recently made public by the Carnegie Foundation. This group of intellectual giants sincerely believed they were doing the country a good turn by publishing its findings, yet it can be said that more harm than good has resulted from this. A member of one of the leading conferences in the country was barred some time back from further participation with the other colleges of that conference. The cause stated was the subsidizing of athletes, yet the real reason can be found in the fact that the college barred happened to be getting more athletes than the other members of the conference. Jealousy was the main reason, with a love for box-office receipts running a close second. Now, recently, the application of this college for re-admittance to the conference was refused by the other members of the league with the excuse that "they have not yet cleared themselves of the charges." And yet this school h...

EXCHANGES The new league debate question, in which Glendale Junior College will participate, has been chosen, "Resolved that the extension of the chain store is detrimental to the best interests of America. —Galeon. The boys of the Chaffey Hi-Y were the guests of the Pomona Hi-Y at the latter's Y. M. V. A. Representatives of several other institutions were present.

The entertainment was especially designed for those of Mexican nationality.—Thrasher. The Girls' League of University High School is said to be the most efficient in the school system.

STAGE-SCREEN [Newspaper Article] — Corsair — 21 January 1930
STAGE-SCREEN The New Moon. A romantic operetta, with Perry Askam as the lead. This production is the best of its kind to come here in some time.' New York Nights. All the stars have their first talkie advertised as such. Don't be fooled by the ads; Norma isn't any better than if she kept still. Anna Christie. Another first talkie. This time Greta Garbo is the heroine in a re-take of the picture that Blanche Sweet did so well. Greta can act also. Chauve Souris. Don't be fooled by the name —this isn't dirty. Some old jokes yet it gets over fairly well. The Rogue Song. Lawrence Tibbett can sing, even if his acting isn't so "hot." The scenes are good with Technicolor. South Sea Rose. They probably have to use asbestos film for these pictures of Lenore Ulric. Sally. Marilyn Miller stars brightly, yet she isn't quite as good as she was in this production on the stage. Journey's End. Another war drama, yet this is quite novel. Bachelors will probably enjoy the fact that no women are in the...
Pamphlets Received From French Cities [Newspaper Article] — Corsair — 21 January 1930
Pamphlets Received From French Cities In order to add something of the real French atmosphere to the class, Miss Katherine Betts asked her students to write letters in French to the Chamber of Commerce of different cities in France. The results were most interesting, as there seemed to be no limit to the material received. Everything in the way of information from buildings and their history, to city plans and sightseeing trips were included. Perhaps some of th® most interesting cities were as follows: Avignon and its beautiful buildings of the old Roman architects; Paris and its public buildings and memorials; Toulouse with its noted University giving a course in French for one month and then taking the students to Spain to study the Castillian language; and Rheims with the rebuilt Cathedral. In addition to this information, pamphlets were received from Nice, Bordeaux, Verdun, Carcassonne, Grenoble, and other cities equally interesting. BEAT L. A. J. C
Hi School Play Is Big Success At Two Shows [Newspaper Article] — Corsair — 21 January 1930
Hi School Play Is Big Success At Two Shows On last Friday and Saturday night, Samohi staged the popular Broadway success, "Polly with a Past." A three-act farce, the play involved Polly, a maid, who masqueraded as a French adventuress in order to win the heart of a charity worker. The play was a pleasing success, due to the ability of Marie Bearse, Betty Teale, Ray Treharne, Don Jonas, and others. The Junior College backed up the play, many Corsairs being in attendance. The Samojac wishes to congratulate the cast for their good work. BEAT L. A. J

Dr. Bush Interviews New J.C Entrants With the advent of the new semester, Santa Monica Junior College will show a decided growth, according to Dr. Ralph H. Bush, director of the Jaysee. In the past few weeks Dr. Bush has interviewed many new entrants and has also spoken to the winter graduating classes of both Venice High School and Santa Monica High School. Many new courses are to be added to the present curricula, thereby adding to the efficiency and convenience of incoming students. These new and old curricula were explained to both classes. Catalogs passed out and all problems that arose were taken care of. Dr. Bush discussed the opportunities of continued work .in junior colleges. Dr. Bush was greatly impressed with the good feeling the graduates have towards Junior colleges. it might be interesting to note that of the thirty-five jaysees in California during their first semester of existence, only two were larger than the S. M. J. C. in its initial semester. It was only surpas...

Few Rules Necessary Here [Newspaper Article] — Corsair — 21 January 1930
Few Rules Necessary Here The attention of the new students registering is called to a few of the rules governing student actions at Santa Monica Junior College. It has always been the purpose of the executive board to have as few rules as possible, yet to have a decided semblance of student order is necessary for the success of any institution. Students must refrain from loitering in the halls when they have no class scheduled. If the library is used the student must remain there for the entire period. The students may leave the grounds at any time they wish. Smoking must be done off the campus. Cars are to be parked off the grounds, no cars can be left in the cirlce. After an absence an interview with Dr. Bush must be held within 24 hours after the return to school. Assemblies are not compulsory unless so specified. Any student having more than three cuts in a class will be dropped in that course and given a grade of F. ' These few rules are necessary for the student body order nec...
College Group To Be Started Next Semester [Newspaper Article] — Corsair — 21 January 1930
College Group To Be Started Next Semester A definite movement has been started toward the foundation of a Drama and Oral Arts society within the college. Tentative plans for such an organization were discussed by a group of collegians in a meeting with Instructor Walter Wallbank last Tuesday and the inception of an Athenaeum Club seems quite probable. The organization at present planned would be both social and literary in scope and would be devoted to the development of oral art. Dramatics and forensics will be stressed. A drama group may sponsor talks on the theater; play production; talks on playwrights; and discussion of plays, current or otherwise. Another group may specialize in debating and discussion of problems before the public eye. A third group will no doubt interest itself in books and writing. The organization will be mutual in the presentation of programs and in endeavor to stimulate interest in public discourse, debate, and dramatics. All students interested in this ...

Spanish Club Plans Agua Caliente Trip Definite plans for their trip to Mexico the week-end following the examinations were made at the regular meeting of the Spanish Club last Wednesday evening at the home of Adele Winn. Friday evening, January 31, they will leave Los Angeles harbor on one of the Alexander boats, and expect to arrive in San Diego Saturday morning. Saturday will be spent in seeing some of the interesting old places in Tijuana and Agua Caliente and attending the horse races in the afternoon. Those who are planning to go should see Mrs. H. Cejudo or Don Hecker immediately. Edward Villarreal, president, called the meeting to order, and after the minutes and a short business session, various games were played. During the entire evening the conversation was in Spanish. BEAT L. A. J. C
Applied Physics Is Subject of Lectures [Newspaper Article] — Corsair — 21 January 1930
Applied Physics Is Subject of Lectures Physics is, after all, not the driest subject in the world. Mr. C. F. Phipps, by a series .of experi ments, explains to his classes in an interesting way the different lessons. How the system of hot water heating works in a house, how the cylinders of a steam engine operate, the principle of shifting gears in an automobile, are all shown to the clas-s by actual experiment. A miniature steam engine was even on hand for one experiment. Students learned how to make striking designs by eheans of iron filings on paper, under clhich magners are placed. Many prinwiples just as interesting as these are being explained experimentally all the time. BEAT L. A. J. C A druggist is a man who runs a restaurant and sells hot water bottles on the side.
Students Register For Next Semester [Newspaper Article] — Corsair — 21 January 1930
Students Register For Next Semester A compulsory student body meeting was held January 9, for recording present programs, and preparatory to registration of classes for the coming semester. The newly appointed cheer leader, Frank Michael, was introduced formally to the student body. Grade cards were filled out and each pupil was presented with a Santa Monica Junior College catalog. Doctor Bush indicated expectations of a large enrollment of new students at the beginning of the term in February. Announcements were called for and made, and then the faculty adjourned to the conference room. President Hickman took charge of the meteing and called upon Mr. Michael to lead a few cheers. An appeal was made for students having ideas for yells to hand them in to the leader. All students have been urged to turn out to the basketball games, for, as President Hickman said, "There is something decidedly lacking in the spirit shown so far toward competition, athletically and otherwise."
