Practice Game Soon [Newspaper Article] — Corsair — 1 October 1929
Practice Game Soon The Santa Monica Junior College begins its basketball campaign this coming Friday, when it meets the Los Angeles Trade School in a practice game. The tilt is to take place on the opponents' court. The first practice is stated for this afternoon. Coach Osterholt expects a turnout of over twenty-five athletes. A number of students formerly in the commercial department are going to Junior College. Santa Monica High School should surely turn out some real business executives in these people, for they are taking an opportunity if there ever was one in a school. Remember S. M. J. C. has no school song, school yell, school nickname, school colors, or even a name for this paper. Get busy!

French Class Has French Magazines Miss Betts, newest addition to the faculty of Santa Monica Junior College, has heightened enthusiasm in her French course by bringing to her class from France many illustrated advertisements from various French newspapers and magazines. We wish those J. C. students who drop all manner of trash over our veranda in the vain hope it will be hidden in the shrubbery, would desist. At that it wouldn't be so bad if they could hit their mark. Our veranda has a nice new coat of tar. Students in adjacent classrooms last Friday when it was being applied were almost required to don gas masks.

Halloween Party To Have Witches, Cats [Newspaper Article] — Corsair — 15 October 1929
Halloween Party To Have Witches, Cats A Hallowe'en party is to be given for the members of the faculty of both the junior college and the high school.

Invitations have been mailed to every known witch and demon to be sure and come. The party is to be given at the cabin of Miss Caroll of the high school. The location is being kept a secret so the students won't try and "crash the gate." The date is October 22, and the time 5:00 p. m. The invitations read that "you and your wife" are invited, so consternation is raging among the fair sex of the faculty. Some are going to obtain wives for the evening and dress themselves in masculine attire. The bachelor members are trying to find some method whereby they can get Greta Garbo, Alice White, Sue Carroll, Gloria Swanson, and other bits of feminine pulchritude to pose as th...

J. G. Students Asked To Obey Fire Signal Junior College students are asked to accustom themselves to heeding the fire alarm. This alarm is given periodically for drills, and every person should definitely know the alarm, which is: two short rings, pause, three short rings, pause. This is repeated four times. In leaving the building during a fire drill, junior college students should go down the south stairway to the main floor then turn to the right and pass out of the building by the girls' outdoor lunch court. The administration asks all J. C. students to get used to this bel signal, as it is imperative that in case of emergency orderly exit should be made.

First Election Decides Colors Names, Officers [Newspaper Article] — Corsair — 15 October 1929
First Election Decides Colors Names, Officers Elections for Student Body officers ended with the favorites for the different offices polling the most of the votes. The contest was close for only two of the offices, that of Commissioner of Athletics and for Commissioner of Arts. Wallace Hickman was elected president by an overwhelming majority over "Fraulein" Helen Stelzriede. The results plainly showed that a girl was not wanted for president, even by her own sex. The race for vice-president was not as close as popular opinion believed it would be. Larry Magee ran away from William Henn in the race, much to the surprise of everyone. The general consensus of opinion was that the contest would be closer. Alden Burks and Dorothy Murray were elected to the offices of Commissioner of Finance and Commissioner of Records, respectively, by obtaining a majority of the number of votes cast, as there was no competition for these positions. Stanley Drake Fish took a close decision over Jack Ros...

College Environment [Newspaper Article] — Corsair — 15 October 1929
College Environment Despite the fact that the Junior College is closely connected with the High School materially, there should be a certain reserved difference in the atmosphere of college life. The college is much more democratic than the high school. The students are more responsible, and the government depends on them to a to a large extent. The initiative of the students runs things. Let's have a separate world of our own.
A Banner Year [Newspaper Article] — Corsair — 15 October 1929

School Spirit [Newspaper Article] — Corsair — 15 October 1929
School Spirit What is school spirit? Is it not the loving and enthusiastic co-opera-tion of all concerned in the life work of our college? Is it not also an intense love of fair play and a consequent abhorrence of cheating and lying? Does it not include loyalty to each other and to all those who are put in authority over us? Then what of obedience? Is not obedience to law much more in line with school spirit than the mere enforcement of law? To sum up, therefore, school spirit essentially consists of love, enthusiasm, co-operation, fair play, loyalty and obedience —"against which there is no law."
School Motto [Newspaper Article] — Corsair — 15 October 1929
School Motto Included with the name of our College, the name of our newspaper, our College colors, and so forth, should be our College motto. According to Webster, "motto" is defined as the "sentence or phrase expressive of some guiding principle or idea." Therefore let our motto be tangible—that is to say, bearing upon ourselves, our conduct, attitude, and willingness to co-operate. Take for example the letters "S. M. J. C." Let them stand for service, manliness, joy and courage, all of which should be part and parcel of our daily living. This motto, if followed and adhered to, will undoubtedly bring success and prosperity to each and every one of us.
