Practice to Begin [Newspaper Article] — Corsair — 18 March 1930
Practice to Begin Spring practice will soon begin. There will be a meeting Wednesday, March 19, after school, in room 13, for all members interested in going out for football next fall, and also who wish to take part in the spring practice. Everyone who can possibly come out should do so. The man who doesn't care what anyone thinks settles down with a package of Luckies and a box of sweets to enjoy an Old Gold program on the radio.
TARGET PRACTICE [Newspaper Article] — Corsair — 18 March 1930
TARGET PRACTICE Since everybody has his own stereotype of things about him we can well forgive the Thrasher sport staff for placing Bill Athey on their second all-conference team. Nevertheless, we appreciate the honor that has been given Athey. That is not so bad for a school which has just entered the conference. Tyrus Moorhous will be unable to compete in any of the coming track meets because it was found out last week that he is ineligible due to studies. Tyrus' loss is felt by the members of the track squad as he runs a nice race in the 400 and a lap on the relay team. Larry Magee is back in condition, and he will be able to compete in the meet with U. C. L. A. frosh today. He was laid up for several weeks by a foot infection. The tennis team was not so successful in its first match, but that does not mean anything. Long Beach isn't slow competition by a long shot. It won't be that way very long; stick by the guns and you will win yet. The track team didn't fare so well either; ...
Vikings Challenge Corsair Waterdogs [Newspaper Article] — Corsair — 18 March 1930
Vikings Challenge Corsair Waterdogs Long Beach Junior College recently challenged Santa Monica Junior College to a water polo and swimming meet, to be held in the near future. It is not known whether Santa Monica will accept the challenge for the water polo game or not, but the swimming team will meet Long Beach soon. This will be the third athletic team from Santa Monica to engage in a meeting with Long Beach aggregations. The first was the basketball team, which lost a close, hard-fought contest in the final minutes of play. The second meeting was when the Long Beach tennis team defeated the Santa Monica aggregation six to nothing. Now the swimming team will endeavor to make up for the loss that was sustained by the other teams. The swimming team is in pretty good condition and will probably place high in the conference meet that is to be held soon.
Tennis Team Makes Good First Showing [Newspaper Article] — Corsair — 18 March 1930
Tennis Team Makes Good First Showing The Corsairs were represented at Long Beach by a squad of hard-hitting racqueteers Saturday, March 8. Although defeated to the tune of six to nothing, the team showed remarkable ability. Though outplayed by a team that deserves much credit, they earned a great deal more for the showing that they made against the Vikings. The team, composed of six members, will be increased to eight for the coming meets. The next one scheduled is with the U. C. L. A. frosh, on their courts, March 26. The line-up against the Vikings: Hartung, Ist singles; J. Davis, second singles; R. Davis, third, and acting captain; Reno, fourth singles; the first doubles were J. Davis and Hartung, while R. Davis and Reno played second doubles. This is a fighting team, and it is practicing diligently every evening for the coming events.

Balcony Sayings [Newspaper Article] — Corsair — 1 April 1930
Balcony Sayings We noticed about the campus last Thursday and Friday a certain blue-eyed colleen apparently in deep mourning—there was that sadness of expression and that far-away look. It has been rumored about that the absence of our editor may have had something to do with it. Especially as the weeds were cast aside for more festive array on his return. How about it, Lucile?
Dinner-Dance Is Pleasant Success [Newspaper Article] — Corsair — 1 April 1930
Dinner-Dance Is Pleasant Success Everyone who attended the Y. W. C. A. dinner-dance Friday evening, March 28, enjoyed himseM immensely. A few members of the Santa Monica young women's organization acted as hostesses, and took care of the guests tn great fashion. Things went atong nicely during the dinner, except for one instance when it was announced that someone had run into Morse Little's car. Immediately curiosity got tfie better of the diners, and the room was consequently emptied for a moment. Dancing to the music of Perry Myers and Lawrence Clapp became the predominant source of pleasure during the evening, after dinner. At intervals, -Miss Laura Todd entertained with two readings, which came in for their due share of applause. Miss Genny Bosworth sang several of the popular songs.

Geissler Tubes Used In Novel Experiment [Newspaper Article] — Corsair — 1 April 1930
Geissler Tubes Used In Novel Experiment Probably the most interesting experiment held by any of the classes of Mr. C. F. Phipps, instructor of sciences, was that conducted during the past week by his Chemistry II class. Not only were the members of the class interested spectators, but also many other outside students. In the experiments Mr. Phipps used Geissler tubes, cathode-ray tubes, and X-ray tubes. A string of Geissler tubes were strung out on a table. These tubes were of different sizes and shapes. When a current of electricity was passed through them, all the colors of the rainbow were represented by the various tubes. The X-ray tubes also fascinated the students. A current was passed through the tube and by holding the hand up to the tube and looking through a box-like affair called a fluorescent screen, one was able to discern all the bones in the hand. Miss Miller wishes to remind track men that their eligibility cards must be in by Tuesday morning at the latest, of the we...

Young Persons Are Only Human [Newspaper Article] — Corsair — 1 April 1930
Young Persons Are Only Human We have read lately that a group of students at Ventura have been arrested by the police there for seeminlyg risque and unappropriate actions. Now once more the question arises in the minds of the elderly folks, "What is the younger generation coming to?" Well, we can tell you just exactly what they are coming to. They will be just as good parents as the parents now are. They are only human, and they are only engaging in the same follies as every normal, healthy, young person does. What parent can honestly say that he or she never "necked"? Well they may get around the fact by claiming that it wasn't called by that name back in the nineties. Anyway, the fact does remain that it was a common practice for them to throw the reins over the backboard and let the horse go to thunder. So why can't they co-operate. Leave the young folks alone, and if they want to hold their petting and pajama parties in a cottage, the parents and older persons should thank the L...

Junior Colleges Get Executive-Secretary [Newspaper Article] — Corsair — 1 April 1930
Junior Colleges Get Executive-Secretary A new idea in junior college efficiency is about to be inaugufated. At the last A. S. B. Presidents' Convention at Compton, plans were drawn up whereby Cali- fornia junior colleges will have an "Executive Secretary."

This enables any junior college to obtain information about any other jaysee. The term of the office is for one year, a new officer being elected each spring. Compton was selected to maintain the office for the year September, 1930, to June, 1931, inclusive.

Spring Fever [Newspaper Article] — Corsair — 1 April 1930
Spring Fever Spring fever! Once more the beautiful weather of California spring comes to lull to sleep all the faculties, places one's nature in a state of sweet tolerance, and offers such a balmy resistance to every effort that one finds himself drifting along on the tide of timeless ease. Nothing is likely to turn a student out of this channel of dreamy inactivity, unless it be something quite out of the ordinary, such as the possibility of flunking his course. In such a case the cobwebs of mental laziness are swept away, and the brain operates smoothly once more. Perhaps this hibernation of the mental activities is a period of accumulation, during which new ideas and the natural genius of the individual strengthen themselves to carry on for the remainder of the year. It is a well-known fact that more plays, musical comedies, et cetera, are written and produced during the spring months than during any other season. Who knows, there may be an outbreak of talent in S. M. J. C. that ...
