W. A. A. Extends Welcome [Newspaper Article] — Corsair — 4 February 1930
W. A. A. Extends Welcome The Women's Athletic Association of the Santa Monica Junior College wish to welcome the new women students. It is hoped that the new women students will take an active interest in earning enough points for their athletic letter. All women should watch the J. C. bulletin board for W. A. A. information. An invitation was extended to W. A. A. to be present at the second playday of the year at Pomona Junior College on March 1930.
TARGET PRACTICE [Newspaper Article] — Corsair — 4 February 1930
TARGET PRACTICE The faculty support has been good at the basketball games. How about the students? Frank Michel, basketball manager, and aspirant for the swimming team, has held the distinction of being captain of the Glendale High School class C swimming team. Appreciation is expressed for the generosity of Frank Michel, Frank Watson, Philip Weil and Ray Davis in taking out the family chariots to drag the cheering section to the games. Such things as that cause unfriendly relations between schools, and that is unnecessary. True sportsmanship at all times is what stamps a school of real gentlemen, and ladies. Dryden Bergeron looked like a replica of the "Man with the Iron Mask" at the L. A. J. C. game. He was all decked out in a specially constructed headgear for his glasses. With the addition of the specs Bergeron ought to ring up a few digits. Santa Monica allowed the spirit of a hotly contested game to control her temporarily at the Angel-Corsair game when a Los Angeles man tried...
J. C. Students Sport Night Horsemanship [Newspaper Article] — Corsair — 4 February 1930
J. C. Students Sport Night Horsemanship Friday night, January 24, several dashing equestrians clambered on their prancing steeds and headed for the hills. It was not a posse, as you might be led to believe, but merely a very law-abiding group of Jaysee men and women out to display their talents in horseback riding. Starting from the Hottentot Riding Academy they followed a trail which lead over several modestly steep inclines, thence to the ocean, where they enjoyed a swift canter along the surf. Not wishing to exhaust the horses, the riders very considerately returned them to the stables and exchanged them for automobiles, which took them to the Frank Meline pavilion that overlooks Castellamare. Here they were the guests of Mr. J. W. Higgins, who allowed them to enjoy a few hours of shin-digging. At midnight a buffet supper was served to the survivors. This terminated the gay escapade. Among those present were the Misses Margaret Johnson, Clara Lee Derry, Helen Bashore, Regina Bend...
Coach Turns Referee [Newspaper Article] — Corsair — 4 February 1930
Coach Turns Referee Coach Bill Osterholt pulled a Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde last week. He appeared in Los Angeles as a referee for a championship basketball game, and within two hours he appeared as a coach to the Corsair-Shamrock tilt at the Muny aud. The championship game was between the class B teams of the Angelica Lutheran Church and the Immanuel Presbyterian Church. Each of these teams was the champion of its respective district. The Immanuel team won and the score indicated that they did not need the help of the referee. The count was 22 to 44. BEAT PASADENA We wonder what Art Redden will do for a date at the coming J. C. press convention now that his Glendale "frau" has lost her job.
Varsity Quintet Drops Hard Tilt to L.A.J.C. Five [Newspaper Article] — Corsair — 4 February 1930
Varsity Quintet Drops Hard Tilt to L.A.J.C. Five The Santa Monica Jaysee basketball team met its rivals, and what is hoped will be their traditional rivals in events to come, a week ago last Friday night, when the Los Angeles Junior College quintet traveled to the Municipal auditorium for Santa Monica's third conference game. The Corasirs took the small end of the SO-32 score. Regardless of what the score may indicate, the game was full of thrills from start to finish. Most of the thrilling portions of the game must be, however, credited to Coach Harry Campbell's outfit. The Angels' team played a "heads-up" game all the way through, and were a typical example of Coach Bill Osterholt's pet theory of basketball, "Get off your feet." Three-fourths of the time that the L. A. men received the ball they were "off their feet" and had the next receiver spotted. Santa Monica was up against a team that could pass, handle, and shoot the ball. On the other hand, the Corsairs were not idle while...
Post-Game Dance [Newspaper Article] — Corsair — 4 February 1930
Post-Game Dance Following the basketball game with L. A. J. C., Friday night, a party of students from Jaysee attended a dance at the La Monica ballroom. Those who formed the group were the Misses Dorothy Russell, Helen Behrman, Betty Livingston, Margaret Johnson, Verna Larson, Sylvia Harper, Ruth Hunt, Messrs. Glynn Reineman, Fred Tsheppe, Gordon Yeaton, Ted Gross, Jimmie Chambers, Allen Freeman, Frank Michel, and Loyson Burnett.

NEXT DEBATE TEAM CHOSEN Thru Try outs Coach Chooses Debate Teams for Next Round Of Inter-collegiate Debates The two teams that are to represent Santa Monica Junior College in the second round of league debates were selected last night by Coach Wallbank last night.

So, in keeping with this policy, they have chosen this subject for this round. A pra...
Activities For Women Outlined Thru Meetings [Newspaper Article] — Corsair — 18 February 1930
Activities For Women Outlined Thru Meetings The Associated Women Students and the Women's Athletic Association held their first meeting of the semester Thursday morning. The purpose of the meeting was to welcome the new girls of the Student Body into the respective organizations and to make plans for a Playday at Glendale J. C., March 8. A word of friendly advice was given to the girls by their advisor, Miss Ethel M. Robinson, who latef introduced Mrs. Marian Mahuran of the Y. W. C. A. of Santa Monica. Mrs. Mahuran invited the girls to mate use of the new "Y" building at 1330 Ocean Avenue. She hopes to have a close relation in the future between the girls of the Junior College and her organization. At the conclusion of the speech the meeting was turned over to Miss Lucile Williams, who announced that the Associated Women Students have planned to give a reception to the new women students, on Wednesday afternoon, February 19, from 3:30 to 5:00 in the teachers' cafeteria. The followin...
War Play At Pasadena [Newspaper Article] — Corsair — 18 February 1930
War Play At Pasadena "The Armored Train," a powerful drama portraying the awakening of the Russian peasantry during the RussoJapanese war, opened last Thursday evening at the Pasadena Community Playhouse. Vsevold Ivanov is the author. It is the intention of the directors of this theater to present only plays of particular merit. Special attention is given those plays which, owing to size of cast or other inherent reason, do not find their way onto the boards of Broadway. Gilmor Brown, mentor of the Playhouse, is playing one of the principal roles of this production. Janis Muncis, Art Director of the Riga Municipal Theater, Latvia, has designed the settings.
Precedent Being Established Now [Newspaper Article] — Corsair — 18 February 1930
Precedent Being Established Now Intending to establish what will be one of the traditions to be strictly adhered to in the future, the administration has seen fit to restrict the South staircase leading to the second floor ,to Junior College students. The high school will be obliged to use the north stairs whenever going to the second floor. The J. C. students are asked to co-operate in this refrain from using the north stairs. Mr. Barnum, principal, has agreed to make this announcement to the high school, and the practice of using the different stairs will begin immediately. In the future, therefore, the J. C. students will observe this rule at all times, and it is assured that the high school will do its part. It is further asked that the J. C. students refrain from making unnecessary noise on the second floor during the assembly periods on Thursdays. They are free to use their locker, but should not loiter in the hallway. The balcony is open and the students are asked to do all t...
Martin Breaks Arm; Takes Cast on Trip [Newspaper Article] — Corsair — 18 February 1930
Martin Breaks Arm; Takes Cast on Trip Meeting with a serious accident on the eve of his departure for the Superintendents' convention at Atlantic City, Superintendent Martin was obliged to make the trip swathed in bandages. The accident occurred while Mr. Martin was performing his daily good turn. In fact he was turning over the motor for one of the fairer members of the system, when the antiquated vehicle objected and placed the Superintendent hors de combat. This necessitated the services of a physician skilled in bone-setting, hence Mr. Martin was obliged to make the trip with an arm supported by splints and a sling.
Zoology Sharks Shark [Newspaper Article] — Corsair — 18 February 1930
Zoology Sharks Shark Members of Mr. Meeuwenburg's zoology class are enjoying the pleasures to be derived from the culinary art, for they are practicing with devastating effecton the make-up of the shark anatomy. Some students even spend an hour or two poking around in the intestines of these helpless animals merely to make a drawing, which the poor sharks, were they alive, would be ashamed to admit as a copy of their insides.

The gay life of Louis XIV, famous paintings by artists of all countries, and the stately furniture of the Victorian age — all are represented. Then, too, the gardens surrounding the ...

The game was accepted with wholehearted demonstrations by the members of the class. Prizes were given in the form of real French bon-bons. The game is a novel one, and is a aid.

Support Us, Newcomers [Newspaper Article] — Corsair — 18 February 1930
Support Us, Newcomers The paper joins the student body in welcoming the new students to the school, and is in hopes that the charter members will be capable of showing the incoming students that kindergarten days have been left behind. Some select few of our first semester students don't seem to fully recognize the fact yet. Everyone believes in allowing people to enjoy themselves, but when the age is reached that students are ready to begin work in Junior College, there are better ways of amusing oneself than some of the tactics previously used. Such things as throwing chalk, hitting each other on the back with erasers and tripping unsuspecting people, may be left behind. There are better aims ahead, the following have been suggested: better student body support, good scholarship, choosing of a school seal, and bigger and more assemblies. Strange as it may seem, not even two-thirds of the student body voted in the recent election. Not even one-third of the student body has ever att...
STAGE-SCREEN [Newspaper Article] — Corsair — 18 February 1930
STAGE-SCREEN Lummox. Winifred Westover returns to the screen after a long absence and clicks. This is one of Fannie Hurst's best sellers. No, No, Nanette. Great picturization of this popular musical comedy. The scenes and music are quite worth going to see and hear. Burning Up. Richard Arlen and Mary Brian in another race-track picture. When better race pictures are made Paramount won't make them. Merry Madcaps. A roundup of wild night-life. The advertisements read "Glorious Girls Galore," but don't be fooled. They were girls when Lincoln was shot. Second Choice. Dolores Costello is more beautiful and alluring then ever before. The supporting cast does a fine bit of acting also. Samurai and Geisha. A unique show given by Tokujiro Tsutsui and his Osaka players. After one sees this he rushes off and fills up on saki. Night Ride. Universal's bid for gangster picture fame. Joe Schildkraut is a reporter who couldn't get a job, even on the Samojac. Mysterious Island. If Jules Verne could ...
