A College in the Making [Newspaper Article] — Corsair — 4 March 1930
A College in the Making To anyone who visited the Municipal auditorium during the last two basketball battles, the thought comes home very forcibly—why the absence of rooters, of yell leaders, and the consequent deadly silence on the part of Santa Monica Jaysee? Is it because we are so very young, collegiately speaking? Is it lack 6f enthusiasm, of organization, of loyalty, or in one word, is it lack of college spirit? Fellow collegians, let us get together; let us become acquainted with each other, let us have more and better assemblies. We have excellent officers and the very best of material for athletics. All we require, in addition, is the ardent, enthusiastic and whole-hearted support of one and all in our admittedly young, but rapidly growing Junior College.— M. F.
Fight Game Needs [Newspaper Article] — Corsair — 4 March 1930
Fight Game Needs Last week's fight fiasco surely shows that the lure for money is the power behind the movement for men seeking prowess in the boxing game. " Fainting" Phil Scott clearly showed that he is the "palooka" the advance reports made him out to be. Pre-fight dope pointed to his ability to assume pained expressions ' immediately rough going showed itself. Indeed, Scott's attitude will undoubtedly cause many actors to take up the lucrative profession of fighting in hopes that their ability to assume a hurt expression will cause the referee to give them the decision. Wouldn't it be good to see Ramon Novarro or Ronald Colman in tears, telling the ref that his opponent had injured him and would the fight please be terminated? As the fight fans will undoubtedly be yelling, "A Dempsey, a Dempsey, our kingdom for a Dempsey." Either that will have to happen or the enormous purses of the past will be only a dim memory. Sportmanship is essential in winning a championship. Very good p...

STAGE-SCREEN [Newspaper Article] — Corsair — 4 March 1930
STAGE-SCREEN Happy Days. By far the best presentation on the talking screen to date. With a cast of such prominence that it can't possibly be overlooked, this will charm every person attending. The most novel part of the picture is the triple vision, although its true-tone dialogue and melodies are wonderful. The Grand Parade. Helen Twelvetrees, although a newcomer to the talkies, shows considerable promise. She is bound to make a hit. Seven Keys to Baldpate. This oldtime production is made over into a talking picture. Richard Dix is real good, and the picture is really better than the stage version. Lone Star Ranger. This will be the first opportunity to see George O'Brien in a western for quite some time. The real feature of this program is the Laurel and Hardy comedy, "Blotto." Gone Hollywood. The spirit of Hollywood as brought to the stage. Maybe they hit it right, and maybe not. Men Without Women. One of the greatest thrill dramas in years. This production has a real human touc...

Cosmopoliton Club Holds First Meeting [Newspaper Article] — Corsair — 4 March 1930
Cosmopoliton Club Holds First Meeting Members of the newly-formed Cosmopolitan Club held their first meeting at Mrs. Cejudo's house, Wednesday, February 19. This gathering of the foreigners proved very interesting. Because of the lack of a prearranged program, each person told of his experiences since he could remember. Mr. Llamada, from Japan, and Mr. Ueda from the Hawaiian Islands, gave entertaining accounts of their lives. Mr. Ueda surprised his listeners by telling that the Japanese language is the one he speaks best, hardly knowing any Hawaiian at all. He stated that the newer, younger generation is drawing away entirely from the Hawaiian language, and endeavoring to adopt the English. Gradually, working in a big circle, stories came of India, England, Canada, Russia, Norway, and of the United States of America. The evening was indeed a jewel of enchanting tales. Miss Ethel Robinson, girls' adviser, will become a member of the club, thus strengthening the English representation...

W. A. A. Gives Tea To Meet New Girls [Newspaper Article] — Corsair — 4 March 1930
W. A. A. Gives Tea To Meet New Girls The Associated Women Students were hostesses to the new members of that organization, and to several of the Faculty, Wednesday afternoon from three-thirty until five o'clock. Guests were graciously received by the Misses Marie Karl and Betty Livingston. Each girl was given a slip of paper on which she wrote her name and the first letter of her hobby. This method proved successful in helping the girls to become better acquainted, not only with each other, but also with the members of the faculty. Horses were very popular as hobbies, and it was discovered that one new little miss is interested in the game of polo, having played it extensively before coming to Santa Monica. Others indicated that such items as dancing, swimming, and even men were attractive to them. One femme of the faculty put the initials of her petite fille on her slip of paper and below them she put those of her husband, showing that her family rate first with her in all language...

Work on Annual to Start Immediately [Newspaper Article] — Corsair — 4 March 1930
Work on Annual to Start Immediately That every event of importance may be recorded and kept until such time as an annual will be printed, the Student Cabinet has chosen Eric Moore as the person to collect all data and photographs of teams, clubs, officers, etc., until they will be needed for the annual. The Cabinet felt that this year was too soon to place the expense and labor of an annual on the student body. With such a small student body the task of editing and publishing an annual would be too great. The advisability of taking a section in the high school annual was considered, and it was decided that next year would find the student body in a better condition than the present time for any work of any kind on an annual. A snapshot day for later in the semester was suggested, and will be announced by the Cabinet in a short time. Students wishing to start photographing interesting personalities on the campus are urgecf to do so at their leisure, until such time as a day is set as...
Piay Day March 8 [Newspaper Article] — Corsair — 4 March 1930
Piay Day March 8 Saturday, March 8, 1930, is another W. A. A. playday, which is to be at the Pomona Junior College. The following sports are offered: speedball, hockey, volleyball, tennis (singles and doubles), and a clogging contest. Due to the lack of time and space, it will not be possible to send a speedball team, as was previously planned; but a first team in singles and a first team in doubles of tennis will be sent. Misses Yvonne Johns and Thelma Fletcher compose the clogging team, and they certainly can step. The Misses Arline Mcßride and Belle Waltz will probably compose the tennis doubles; by the way, they brought home honors from the last playday. Miss Pat Stelzriede may go out for the tennis singles. All women are advised to look on the bulletin board and notice the amendment which is to be voted upon at the next W. A. A. meeting.
Why Profs Go Crazy [Newspaper Article] — Corsair — 4 March 1930
Why Profs Go Crazy The old adage, "Fools can ask questions that even a wise man cannot answer," is put into practice quite often at this college. The ever occurring event of a student asking a difficult question of a professor is overlooked by most persons, yet the destinies of kingdoms have rested on finer threads than this. The department where the most questions arise is undoubtedly the one conducted by Mr. Phipps. Invariably the recitation is interrupted by some student suddenly awakening and asking questions which range from simple queries about atoms to complex ones concerning such theories as relativity, etc. The prize questions are usually propounded by the feminine members of the class. During a recitation the other morning one of the students was giving facts about the life of Galileo. The statement was made that he held of philosophy at one of the large universities of Europe. Imagine Mr. Phipps' embarrassment when Jane Colegrove asked, "Who is this guy philosophy, anyway...
C. E. Phipps Tours Europe by Bicycle [Newspaper Article] — Corsair — 4 March 1930
C. E. Phipps Tours Europe by Bicycle Mr. C. E. Phipps, some summers ago, toured Europe. He was not satisfied with merely visiting the principal parts of each nation, but in order to become acquainted more thoroughly with the life of the various countries, he and his companions traveled approximately seven hundred miles in all by bicycle. Among the famous cities visited were Naples, Rome, Venice, Florence, Paris, and London. At Pompeii, Mr. Phipps visited the historical volcano at Mt. Vesuvius. Perhaps the most interesting city was Pisa, where the noted leaning tower forms the greatest attraction for the curiosity of foreigners. From this tower Galileo performed several of his experiments. The swinging chandelier which today hangs in the cathedral of Pisa, is the same one which gave Galileo the idea for the law of the pendulum which he gave to science. The Swiss Alps were especially interesting, and their imposing grandeur and towering magnificence made an impression never to be forg...
First Social Event to be "Bunko" Party [Newspaper Article] — Corsair — 4 March 1930
First Social Event to be "Bunko" Party Freshmen will receive formal welcome when a "bunco" party will be presented in their honor Friday, March 14, in the girls' gymnasium. Miss Adele Winn, commissioner of arts, is working to make this affair well worth remembering. In cooperation with a committee which she has appointed, Miss Winn will decorate the gym, with orange and gray as the predominant colors, and will see that ample entertainment is provided. While the party is rather late in fulfilling its object, there will be the added pleasure of knowing the freshmen better, and vice versa, so that the gathering will assume the aspect of one big, congenial family. The reception, so to speak, will begin at eight o'clock. Spice will be added to the program by the fact that prizes will be given to the boys' winner, one to the girls' winner, and a booby prize will be given for both co-eds and the gentlemen. Only junior college students will attend. Old students, let's give the freshmen an o...

Basketball Team Shows up Well In Seasonal Review Considering the fact that the Jaysee basketball squad for 1929-1930 was the first Varsity team to represent Santa Monica, the season has been a success from every consideration.

In every game played, the opposing coaches have personally congratulated Coach Osterholt on the fine showing the team made, as well as to comment on the fine, clean game put up, whether won or lost.

TARGET PRACTICE [Newspaper Article] — Corsair — 4 March 1930
TARGET PRACTICE The track squad is rounding into shape, with every man working conscientiously toward perfecting his special event. If one would take a look around the track, some interesting sights would meet his eyes. Frank Watson has consistently cleared 11 feet 6 inches —cleared, get me —in the pole vault. He has not been hurried as yet, and one cannot help but wonder what he will do with competition. Edward Villarrea! is winding up his legs for the distance runs and showing his heels to the best of them. The last couple of days have found Ed nursing a minor ailment, but he will be all set to take on worthy opponents. Health hints from the wise ought to be sufficient to aid the men of the college in their physical education. Coach Bill Osterholt is writing a series of articles to be used in connection with his department. It can hardly be overlooked that the basketball squad only had four men who played organized basketball before. That says a lot for their training. Captain Bil...
