Person's Future Is Own [Newspaper Article] — Corsair — 4 February 1930
Person's Future Is Own Recently students of the college have been the recipients of "form" letters advertising a local business college. They have undoubtedly gone to considerable expense and trouble to get these into the hands of the students. Also they have probably gone to considerable trouble in sending a letter which will please the inner self of each ron receiving said letter. We take our hat off to them in this respect. The letter would please anyone, after reading one the writer felt that by not being elected president of the United States at the last election he was "gypped." In fact the business college must sincerely believe in Mr. P. T. Barnum's masterpiece, you know the one, there's such-and-such born every so-and-so. But to get to the subject of this editcrrial. The emphasis in the letter was placed on "putting such a brilliant future as you have in the proper hands." Such a statement is really absurd for a person of normal intelligence to believe. A person's future is...
School Seal Wanted [Newspaper Article] — Corsair — 4 February 1930
School Seal Wanted Now that Santa Monica Junior College has become organized and realizes in which direction the student body wishes to go, it is time that there be some real aims developed. The editorial group have discussed having these aims placed in the paper, and a few have been suggested. Few students realize it, but our faculty advisor, Mr. Sandmeyer, has been working for a school seal. This seems a very good point, as we have neither a sign, nor an emblem of any kind with which to be identified as the S. M. J. C. students. A very attractive seal was on Mr. Sandmeyer's desk a few weeks ago. There was a very good figure of a Corsair with a ship in the background, all being worked in in the school colors. However, the lettering was so arranged that the reading was misrepresenting. Mr. Sandmeyer has returned the seal to the originators, and sent with it suggestions so that it will be more symbolic.—J. C. -BEAT PASADENA—
Coach Commends Spirit [Newspaper Article] — Corsair — 4 February 1930
Coach Commends Spirit "Never in my athletic or coaching experience have I ever enjoyed more than this past term, working with such fine young men with a gentlemanly sense of sportsmanship. When the first call for basketball was made, every man in the Junior College appeared and tried out for the squad." Thus was the statement made by our Coach when interviewed by a Samojac reporter. It is this spirit of co-operation and loyalty to our Alma Mater which spells success on the playing field as well as in the class room. —M. F.

STAGE-SCREEN [Newspaper Article] — Corsair — 4 February 1930
STAGE-SCREEN Devil May Care. Ramon Novarro does a nice bit of acting in this play. The scenery and the leading lady are good. We can't vouch for the authenticity of the history in this one, though.

Lucille La Verne still knocks them out of their seats with portrayal in this one. If you saw the picture of this, be sure and see it on the legitimate. And So to Bed.

BOOK REVIEW [Newspaper Article] — Corsair — 4 February 1930
BOOK REVIEW Some day airplanes are going to stop in the skies to receive passengers halued up from the earth. Some day man is going to ride on the sea-bottom in a seagoing motor. Some day the x-ray is going to detect old buried cities. These are but a few of the many fascinating adventures in science about which Edward Cressy writes in his new book, "Discoveries and Inventions of the Twentieth Century." "Bowl of Heaven," by Evangeline Adams, is a book on astrology. Each of the chapters describes signs of the zodiac, and the influences attributed to it on the character of those born under that sign.

Caps, Gowns At Future J. C. Grad Excercises [Newspaper Article] — Corsair — 4 February 1930
Caps, Gowns At Future J. C. Grad Excercises A special meeting of the administrators of the Southern California Junior College Association was held on January 23 at Fullerton. Mr. W. F. Barnum, principal, and Dr. Ralph H. Bush, director, represented Santa Monica Junior College. The special meeting was called to discuss important conference matters. San Bernardino was picked as the locale of the annual Spring meeting to be held on Saturday, April 5, 1930. The morning session of the conference was devoted to section meetings. Mr. C. F. Phipps, of Santa Monica Junior College, was appointed chairman of the science section meeting. The general meeting of the day was held in the afternoon with Dr. W. W. Kemp, Dean of the School of Education of the University of California at Berkeley, as the principal speaker. A question of vital importance was discussed concerning graduation. The committee recommended that a uniform academic dress be used for graduation in the respective colleges of the c...
Mason Opera House Presents Features [Newspaper Article] — Corsair — 4 February 1930
Mason Opera House Presents Features On January 13 the spectacular revue, "Chauve Souris" opened at the Mason with an entirely new program of twenty numbers. This sophisitcated and thoroughly delightful offering is above the standard routine of entertainment usually seen in Los Angeles. Such numbers as the incomparable "Parade of the Wooden Soldiers," " Midnight Review,"'and " Boublitchki" will be seen in the production. Mr. Belasco promises that Cohan's "Gambling" will come to this coast in the near future. This play is being successfully presented in New York at present. With such productions as these on its program, the legitimate stage can be justly optimistic about its outlook this season. BEAT PASADENA More can be accomplished by throwing a little perspiration than by throwing a lot of bull.

Shakespearean Plays Get Public Ovations [Newspaper Article] — Corsair — 4 February 1930
Shakespearean Plays Get Public Ovations Proof that people still care for serious drama was evinced by the enthusiastic reception given the Strat ford-on-Ave n players on their return for a two-weeks engagement at the Belasco theater recently. "Much Ado About Nothing," which played to a capacity house Saturday j evening, brought to a close their trium-: phant series of Shakespearean productions, j It was with great reluctance that the audience, after demanding five curtain calls of the leading characters, left the theater regretting they had seen the last performance of this great English company. However, they may be assured that many other fine theatrical productions will be presented this season.
Hints for Hygiene Given by Osterholt [Newspaper Article] — Corsair — 4 February 1930
Hints for Hygiene Given by Osterholt Especially during the next three months, particular care should be given the body so as to insure against colds and other "wet weather" ills. Students confining their routine to study are usually more open to contracting colds than the ones who take regular exercise, dur to the lower resistance of the body, thus allowing more retardation of the functioning of the organs of the body. The following hints are offered to those interested: 1. Take regular walks each, day of from two to four miles, preferably in the early morning. Breathe deeply of resh, pure air, and sleep in a well-ventil'a.ted room, windows open on one side of the room so no drafts are possible. 2. The throat and nose are hotbeds for cold-germs, therefore gargle with a mild antiseptic solution such as lake-warm salt water, zonite, listerine, glyco-thymo-line, etc. A clean nose and throat is the best insurance against colds, diptheria, etc. 3. A healthy body demands regular bowel eli...
Dope on Cabinet Officers Presented [Newspaper Article] — Corsair — 4 February 1930
Dope on Cabinet Officers Presented For the benefit of the new students we feel that it will be advisable to introduce the cabinet officers. From the descriptions given here any person of normal intelligence should be able to pick the officers. If this system doesn't work, the students will only have to wait until Thursday when the officers will be introduced at the first student body assembly. After that day it will probably go hard to pick them out again, as they will all be dressed up for the occasion, but will return to their everyday attire the next day. The president is none other than little Lawrence Magee. The delightful cognomen he goes by is "Maggots." Curly, brown hair and blue eyes, with a set of matchless teeth, constitute his physical appearance. For the benefit of the young ladies we will let out the news that Larry wears orange-and-gray socks. Vice-president Dryden Bergeron will easily be recognized by the pair of hornrimmed cheaters which adorn his face. At a basketb...
Curricula Now Changed; New Courses Given [Newspaper Article] — Corsair — 4 February 1930
Curricula Now Changed; New Courses Given That the new semester will be one of great activity, is indicated by the number of new students enrolled and also by the many new courses added to the curriculum.

Pensamiento Y Accion [Newspaper Article] — Corsair — 4 February 1930
Pensamiento Y Accion El pensamiento obedece a la universal ley de que cada cosa engendra su semejante; y por lo tanto, todo pensamiento influye en el animo segun sy naturaleza. Son como veloces palomas mensajeras, que llevan lo que les ponemos.—Ella Wheeler Wilcox. —E. V. tion should not remain on the surface of the skin, as pimples, boils and other skin eruptions are directly caused from lack of bathing. Cold showers can well be taken, upon arising, provided that the room is between 68 and 72 degrees temperature. Care should be taken to see that the body is thoroughly dry after a cold shower. A rough bath towel, properly used, will leave a pink glow to the skin and renewed vigor will be derived from such methods. 6. Get at least nine hours of sleep regularly each night. From the therapeutic standpoint, every hour of sleep before midnight is worth two hours of sleep after. One quilt on top of one wool blanket is sufficient to be used for sleeping on the coldest California night.
Santa Monica Corsairs Downs Riverside Tigers In Slow But Close Game [Newspaper Article] — Corsair — 4 February 1930
Santa Monica Corsairs Downs Riverside Tigers In Slow But Close Game Coach Bill Osterholt's fighting Corsairs came from behind in the second half, to defeat the Riverside Tigers by the close score of 35-33, at the Tigers' pavilion, last Friday night. Riverside was the aggressive team in the first half, leading at the end of the period, 15-12. Santa Monica's apparent weakness was due to the fact that Riverside has the maximum-size floor, and the Corsairs were a bit at sea at first. Consequently, it took time for them to*" adjust themselves to conditions. The playing during the first half was ragged on both sides, due to poor passing and inability to judge distances. The second half, saw two new teams, mentally. Both teams settled down and played a headier game. However, Coach Osterholt must have said plenty during the five minutes between halves, because the new attack led by Captain Bill Athey and Alden Burks worked efficiently. Then Santa Monica saw herself in a lead never surpassed...
