Students Impressed With Library Visit To Noted Exhibits [Newspaper Article] — Corsair — 18 March 1930
Students Impressed With Library Visit To Noted Exhibits Behold! the Blue Boy gazes down thoughtfully at the little group of curious onlookers directly beneath him. Impressed, the troupe moves on, scrutinized in turn by the many ladies and gentlemen of the court, by the nobles and kinds of the nations, some stupid-looking, while the eyes of others sparkle with true genius. The small body of visitors comes next to the immense tapestries depicting the life of some past era. By this time there is no longer a compact squad, for its members are scattered here and there, one studying old maps, by which he is surprised to see that California was considered an island even as late as the latter half of the eighteenth century; one particularly interested in literature is studying manuscripts by Chaucer, Shakespeare, Kipling, and Poe; and still another, whose hobby is history, scrutinizes letters to which the great seals of Henry VIII, Edward 11, and George II lare affixed. Also of interest to ...

Comedy at Pasadena [Newspaper Article] — Corsair — 18 March 1930
Comedy at Pasadena "Our American Cousin/' now playing at the Pasadena Community Playhouse, is a splendid and authentic revival of a historic comedy. Essentially American in character, and always popular, it afforded a means of bringing to light the abilities of such actors as Joseph Jefferson, Edward A. Sothern, and Laura Keene. Ir was at a production of this play that President Lincoln was assassinated, and nearly cost the American stage the loss of its greatest actor, Edwin Booth. Americans have to be careful in Venice that they do not drink too much and then try to lie down in the gutters.
Coach Osterholt Points to Health In Second Series [Newspaper Article] — Corsair — 18 March 1930
Coach Osterholt Points to Health In Second Series In every athletic activity a certain degree of skill is demanded ,controlled by a habit. A pole-vaulter, hurdler, shotputter, etc., will never do his best unless he has learned to do it unconsciously, until he is able to put his whole attention into the muscular effort. He must riin his event as an automatic process; his mind must be centered on the effort itself. This formation of habit is wholly a neural process, and does not relate to strength, the habit not being formed by a few extreme efforts, but by many moderate ones. The pole-vaulter perfects his form when the bar is nine feet, where it is kept until the form, stride, and distance is mastered. This mastery takes weeks to attain, and the smart athlete will be content himself at this height until a few days before the meet. In this manner the athlete and coach are able to study the individual faults so that they will be eliminated before competition is begun. The development o...
Spanish Dances are Learned at Meeting [Newspaper Article] — Corsair — 18 March 1930
Spanish Dances are Learned at Meeting Los Charros y las Poblanas met at the home of Bernard Rogers Wednesday evening, March 12. After the business meeting, Edward Villarreal gave a very interesting talk on the Spanish dress and dances. To illustrate his talk he had the complete costume of a Spanish bullfighter and also several shawls such as the senoras and senoritas wear. One shawl which brought a series of exclamations, especially from the feminine members of the club, was a beautiful yellow one, hand designed. This came from Seville on the last boat to leave Europe for America before the war was declared in 1914. Senor Villarreal also gave a short dance which is very common in Spain. After this many of the members learned a few of the steps to the Spanish dance while others played the old American game of bridge.

School Records Being Made in Cinder Events [Newspaper Article] — Corsair — 18 March 1930
School Records Being Made in Cinder Events Although the track team has done nothing exceptionally brilliant to date, some records were made in events which will probably stand for some time as school records. The events they were made in and the times and distances are exceptionally good for they have all been made in early season, and will probably be broken before the season is over. The records and the events are: pole vault, eleven feet; high jump, five feet seven inches; hundred yard dash, 10.2 seconds; relay, one minute and thirty-one seconds; 440-yard dash, fifty-four seconds; half mile, two minutes and twelve seconds. As most of these times were made on a wet track they are sure to be improved on. The men who made them are working hard, and the track team should enjoy a profitable season.
Southern California J. C.Meet Postponed [Newspaper Article] — Corsair — 18 March 1930
Southern California J. C.Meet Postponed The Southern California Junior College Association track meet, which was to be held on the Chaffey Junior College oval, March 15, was postponed to April 26 on account of rain. The postponement of this meet will benefit the Corsair crew very much because it will give the team a better chance of being in tip-top condition. Santa Monica had men entered in only seven events, but Coach Osterholt hopes to enter more men in more events, because they will be in better condition and have more experience. This annual meet takes the place of the combined Southern California Junior Colleges against the U. S. C. frosh. The frosh meet will probably be held on a later date, but as soon as it is announced, the Samojac will publish the date. The men that were to compete in this meet were: Stan White, in the 100 and 220; Harry Wills, in the 440; Mason, in the 880 and mile; Watson, in the pole vault; and a relay team.
Track Squad Meets U. C.L. A. Freshmen [Newspaper Article] — Corsair — 18 March 1930
Track Squad Meets U. C.L. A. Freshmen The Santa Monica Junior College spike'sters hold their second meet of the season with Coach Guy Harris' Bruin frosh today at the W'estwood oval, at 4:00 p. m. The Corsairs are in a good position to win this meet because several more fellows have come out for the team, while the regular members of the squad are in better condition, due to hard practice and a conference meet. Another point in favor of the Santa Monica squad is the fact that the freshmen will only enter as many men in every event as will the Corsairs. This meet is only a practice tilt in preparation for the meet with the strong Compton aggregation March 22. The following week the squad will meet Glendale. Although there will be no championship this year, there is plenty of material being developed for next year.

Lettermen to Meet [Newspaper Article] — Corsair — 18 March 1930
Lettermen to Meet There will be a meeting of the basketball lettermen Friday at 3:45 in room 13. This meeting is for the purpose of organizing a lettermen's club, although this society will not be really organized until after the track season. The lettermen's club will be the disciplinary board for the incoming frosh next fall. Coach Osterholt has gone to the trouble to write up a series of health and training hints, and the Samojac has taken the space to print them, but who reads them? These hints were put in the paper not to take up space, but to help the students with training.
Track Artists Overwhelmed By Pasadena [Newspaper Article] — Corsair — 18 March 1930
Track Artists Overwhelmed By Pasadena Coach Bill Osterholt's track squad suffered defeat at the hands of the Pasadena aggregation by the uneven score of 112 to 19. The Corsairs were handicapped due to the fact that they have had no practice meets, and because only a few students have turned out for the squad. Against such odds it was impossible for Santa Monica to make an impressive showing. As it was, they used every man on the team for more than one event. Pasadena participants outnumbered Santa Monica 44 to 12. The following placed in the meet: Harry Wills, second in the 440, and third in the 880; Stanley White, second in the 220yard dash, and a third in the 100-yard dash; Stuart Mason, second in the 880yard run; Frank Watson, tie for first in the pole vault, and a second place in the high jump; and Ray Davis, a third in the shot put. The other men on the squad showed up to advantage. Immediately after the meet Frank Wat son was elected captain of the squad. Coach Osterholt
