Speeches Given As Final Examination In place of the regular three-hour examinations, Mr. Wallbank is requiring of his public speaking classes a rather long speech embodying the speech principles studied during the semester's course.

Friendship; the Best Book I ever read; My Home; Left Over Ladies; and the lives of such men as Prescott, the historian. ,Since this is the final examination the students are showing particular interest and enthusiasm in making this attempt the best.

Corsairs Need Rooters' Aid at Casaba Games [Newspaper Article] — Corsair — 21 January 1930
Corsairs Need Rooters' Aid at Casaba Games In view of the fact that this is the first year of athletic competition for the Santa Monica Junior College, the teams are placing well in the list of conference teams. The cross-country team made up of Drake, Yillarreal and Mason finished .eighth in the conference cross-country run last December. So far the basketball team has won five games and lost three, having won one game in the Junior College League and lost one. We are all proud of the men, but it is absolutely necessary for more rooters to attend the games. Every member of the Junior College should be present at all games, especially this year that the student body is small. The next game will be played at the Municipal auditorium, Ocean Park, when the team will meet the strong Los Angeles Junior College team at 9 p. m. Saturday night. Although the L. A. J. C. team has beaten all their rivals by more than 30 points each game, the student body of Santa Monica can be assured that the...
J. C .Sportsmanship Becoming Popular [Newspaper Article] — Corsair — 21 January 1930
J. C .Sportsmanship Becoming Popular In every athletic relationship so far this year, the opposing captains and coaches have expressed their appreciation to Coach Osterholt of the fine type of sportsmanship shown in competition. In every case, the coaches have asked return games for the next season, which is proof that the Santa Monica brand of athletics is wanted. No little credit is due such gentlemanly athletes as Bill Athey, Hickman, Drake, Villarreal, Stevenson, Burks, and others for this existing relationship. Coach Bert Smith of Long Beach commented on the fine spirit and clean fighting hearts of all the basketball men and, if possible, he would like to have Santa Monica play his teams in ?11 other sports. This statement was proven when he personally invited the tennis team to visit Long Beach March 8 for a match. It is up to every representative of Santa Monica to uphold this reputation and play the game hard — but fair.
Cal. Christian Babes Defeat Santa Monica [Newspaper Article] — Corsair — 21 January 1930
Cal. Christian Babes Defeat Santa Monica The California Christian College frosh basketball team turned the tables on Coach Bill Osterholt's Corsairs in a return game played on the Los Angeles school's court. Save for the remarkable shooting by Fraser of the Panther frosh, the game was the most uninteresting on the docket so far. This little fellow made 28 points alone, almost as many as Santa Monica gathered in the whole game. He poisoned Santa Monica's chances to win the second game. Because of the unimportance of the game Coach Osteriiult took only seven men on the trip. The necessary experience was lacking with a couple of the men, and it's practice games of this sort that puts on that experience-polish so necessary to a good team. Captain Athey and Wallv Hickman were high-point men for the Corsairs, with 11 and 10 points, respectively. The starting lineups: PANTHER FROSH CORSAIRS Gardner f Capt. Athey Frazier f Burks Griffith c Davis Parker g Hickman Parmenter g Delp S. M. subst...

DIRECTOR'S MESSAGE [Newspaper Article] — Corsair — 4 February 1930
DIRECTOR'S MESSAGE The first semester in the existence of the Santa Monica Junior College is now a matter of history, and a new semester is at hand. We are proud of what we have accomplished in this short space of time, but much remains to be done in the months that are left. Members of the faculty have worked unsparingly to aid the college in its organization period; the students have been conscientious in their work; and to each group I wish to extend my sincere thanks. Socially and athletically the activities of the student body have been very gratifying; the first college dance proved that a good feeling existed between the students and faculty; while the showing of the basketball quintet, which is the first group to carry the Corsair spirit on the field of competition, has set a standard of clean sportsmanship to be emulated by future wearers of the orange-and-grey.

The members lety Friday evening at eight o'clock on the S. S. Ruth Alexander. They dined and danced into the night.
