EXCHANGES [Newspaper Article] — Corsair — 18 February 1930
EXCHANGES In one of the oustanding collegiate radio programs of the year, the men's glee club of Redlands University recently entertained the radio public over KFXM, San Bernardino, from 9:30 to 10 o'clock in the evening. Five members of the Players' Guild, the upper division dramatics club of Pasadena Junior College, were recently initiated into the Delta Phi Omega, national honorary dramatics fraternity.—Pasadena Chronicle. The upper classmen of Modesto Junior College received the new students in a "get-acquainted" dance on the auditorium floor. A select committee of upper grade notables acted as hosts and hostesses. It was a "welcome" dance; undoubtedly everyone welcomed it in return. —Modesto Collegian. The acting superintendent of San Mateo Junior College announced that students must park their autos on a lot specifically provided for them. He went on to say a 'plank has been placed for a driveway, and fire facilities are to be arranged soon. An ingenious idea and an efficient ...
One Must Receive to Learn [Newspaper Article] — Corsair — 18 February 1930
One Must Receive to Learn After spending numerous hours drilling the rules of English, German, Spanish, Physics, Chemistry, Mathematics, or other subjects in the J. C. curriculum, imagine the chagrin of the instructor to find his or her work was in vain. What we mean is this. What must the mental attitude of the professor be when after class he hears his students violating all the rules he has taught them the previous hour? Take, for instance, the poor English prof. For the benefit of those not so well versed in grammar he will labor long and hard to get the rules across. Then the bell rings, out rushes the class and upon meeting some friend from another class, on the balcony, the following conversation will ensue. "Ja get that bum book from tha libry?" And the answer is couched in the same language. That is one of the reasons why a teacher's hair falls out. If a student can't at least use the correct forms while in the college, there is little hope of him using them outside the sph...
Everyone Can be a Lincoln [Newspaper Article] — Corsair — 18 February 1930
Everyone Can be a Lincoln This month we have celebrated the anniversary of the birth of Abraham Lincoln. His life career teaches us to respect those who are poor and humble. His parents were poor, his birthplace humble, his education meager. Each person in the College has had a better education than Lincoln. He had that one thing, though, that every person in the world has —opportunity. The difference between Lincoln and the millions of other persons is that they don't take advantage of that. Everything that Lincoln had it is possible for any other person to have. True, there can only be one president of the country at a time, yet it is possible for one to attain an equal height. A person is not remembered by what amount of money he earned or saved, he is remembered for his contribution to society in helping it advance one step further toward perfection. That is where we come in. We are getting the proper training, far better than Lincoln received, after that it rests with us whethe...

History Classes Interesting [Newspaper Article] — Corsair — 18 February 1930
History Classes Interesting Mr. Sandmeyer's history classes are some of the most interesting in the college curriculum. The diplomacy, intrigue, and attitudes of the great nations of the earth are studied and analyzed. Beginning with the early accomplishments of such men as Charlemagne and Caesar, the accomplishments of the generations down to the present are taken in hand.
BOOK REVIEW [Newspaper Article] — Corsair — 18 February 1930
BOOK REVIEW "The Art of Thinking," by Abbe Earnest Dimnet. Simon and Schister, publishers, New York, 1928. This treatise on an art that is sadly neglected, is most delightful and clever. The Abbe never allows himself to become pedantic in thought or in style, but presents his subject, as Bliss Perry of Harvard said, in a manner delicate, straight and light as an arrow, and winged, like an arrow, with wit. The work talks with its reader, anticipates his thoughts and answers them. It is to be especially recommended because of its message, and commended because it may be tasted, read by paragraph or page, browsed about or read consecutively without loss to its value or wit. "Alice in Wonderland,"' by Lewis Carroll (Charles L. Dodgson). F. M. Lupton Publishing Co. Boston, 1878 (?). A dream story. Especially recommended for people of a certain age.
Dr. Ralph Bush And F.F. Martin Leave for East [Newspaper Article] — Corsair — 18 February 1930
Dr. Ralph Bush And F.F. Martin Leave for East Dr. Ralph H. Bush and Superintendent F. F. Martin left, Saturday evening, to attend the superintendents' meeting at Atlantic City. A special train from San Francisco was taken by the California delegation. Dr. Bush is to be one of the speakers at the convention. His topic will be "Teacher load in the Junior College." To further explain his subject, Dr. Bush has prepared an elaborate table to emphasize his work in this field. From a questionary which he sent to all the junior colleges in the country, Dr. Bush was able to formulate a table for each department offered, giving the average number of classes per teacher, the number of preparations per teacher, the number of semester hours per teacher, and the recommendations by administrators as to the number of semester hours per teacher and the maximum number of pupils per class. This table is divided into large, medium, and small junior college findings, so that each junior college director...

Students Attend Hop Drop your pennies here, please! Thus coaxed the pretty little misses who collected admission to the Penny Hop sponsored by the Girls' League of the High School Wednesday afternoon in the women's gymnasium. It was a "merry mix," and a good time was had by all —• even the more or less dignified Jaysee students counted among those present, who danced to the merry pipings of Bill Brothers' orchestra from three until five o'clock.

Economic Students Aid J. C. Debaters [Newspaper Article] — Corsair — 18 February 1930
Economic Students Aid J. C. Debaters Out of the new classes inaugurated this semester, economics shows signs of being the most practical and most interesting. Economics is a study that gives a very good introduction to the principles of our economic environment, organization and activity, stressing the co-operative nature of modern society and problems related to it. During the past two weeks the class has worked on the subject of "Chain Stores." Besides being a timely economic subject, the work greatly aided the debating team in its forthcoming debate.

Adele Winn As Others See Her [Newspaper Article] — Corsair — 18 February 1930
Adele Winn As Others See Her Contrary to all popular belief, Adele Winn, commissioner of arts, has not paid for this article to appear (it was necessary to publish this, as Adele's name was left out of last week's feature). In keeping with the policy of the paper, paid advertisements are not accepted, and, although amid the press of added financial expenditures which accompany a new semester, we adhere strictly to this policy. One reason for this is that by the time we get through splitting with the staff there isn't enough left to buy Marie Karl matches with. Miss Winn —yes, boys, she is still unmarried —is a graduate of Venice High School; yet this is not to be held against her. Venice does turn out some decent graduates once in a while. Ahem! She is the possessor of one galloping Tin Elizabeth, sadly in need of a new coat of paint, new motor, new body, new chassis, new driver, new horn, oh well, new everything, which she refuses to drive any further than three miles from home in ...

Jap Players Give Splendid Portrayal [Newspaper Article] — Corsair — 18 February 1930
Jap Players Give Splendid Portrayal Geisha and Samurai. The Kengeki players of Osaka at the Figueroa Playhouse, in a double program; giving Los Angeles a treat before opening in New York. The first play, which opens with a street scene in the Yoshawara, is excellent pantomime; the parade of the Oirans is especially interesting to Occidentals. The second scene represents a poor sculptor's home, where the Japanese version of the Aphrodite tale is developed and completed. The second play is concerned with feudal life in eighteenth century Japan. It is replete with a villainous lord, a wayward son that turns hero, and the "Shadow," a character that represents the spirit of good. The latter is portrayed by Tsutsui, an eminent Japanese actor of this type of drama. Right, of course, prevails, and the drama is brought to a close with a smashing scene of sword play. Sword drama or kengeki compares with our Horatio Alger stories and melodrama, in which the spirit of right prevails; rather tha...
Cosmo Club Holds Meet to Organize [Newspaper Article] — Corsair — 18 February 1930
Cosmo Club Holds Meet to Organize The Cosmopolitan Club is now being organized. Last Friday the students interested in the forming of the club met with Mrs. Cejudo, who originated the idea of national and international friendliness in the school. At this meeting the membership quota was discussed, as well as many other problems which the constitution committee will thrash out. Miss Dorothy Murray and Messrs. Kejar Singti and Eric Moore were elected to serve on this committee. They will nominate candidates for office besides their regular duty of drawing up the constitution. It has been decided that the different nations will be represented by their natives in alphabetical order. Don't be alarmed if you find a piece of rubber tire in the hash. The motor is displacing the horse everywhere.
Jaysee Mellon Tossers Bow to Pomona Five [Newspaper Article] — Corsair — 18 February 1930
Jaysee Mellon Tossers Bow to Pomona Five The Pomona Junior College Jasons took their first Golden Fleece from the Santa Monica Corsairs by the score of 31 to 25. This victory for Pomona marked her second win of the entire season, the first one being a practice game. Santa Monica had practically no defense and not much of an offense, although Pomona made most of its shots from the center of the floor, and very few from under the basket. Santa Monica's offense was not as good as usual because of poor passing and receiving of the ball. The game was very slow. The score at the half was 14 to 19 in favor of the Jasons. Shankland of Pomona was high-point man of the game with 16 digits, while Captain Athey of the Corsair crew had 10 points to his credit. Brilliant floor work was played by Captain W. Peters of Pomona and Steve Stevenson of Santa Monica. To date Santa Monica has .333 percent, while Pomona has .167 percent. The lead which Pomona built up in the first few minutes against Coach...
