Colleges Should Be Informed [Newspaper Article] — Corsair — 1 April 1930

Colleges Should Be Informed Up to this time there has been no definite work done by any of the commissioners of the different inter-collegiate activities in informing every college in the conference as to the respective standings of the conference to that date. There has been no way that it was possible for the colleges in the eastern division to find out how the colleges in the western division had progressed, and at times it was impossible to publish the standing of any college except that one in which the paper was interested enough to have written to and found out how many games had been won or lost. We believe that something should be done to remedy this situation, especially in sport and debate schedules, and wish to petition, the commissioners of these activities to inform every college in the conference weekly, asao the respective standings.

Sensational Play Is Written By German [Newspaper Article] — Corsair — 1 April 1930

Sensational Play Is Written By German "The Weavers" is a play in four acts, written by Gerhart Hauptmann, foremost German dramatist and poet. This play created a profound impression; it was the most ambitious play written in the nineties. The play, if it was an experiment in dramatic form, was highly significant. Instead of a single hero, the playwright created a mob; this mob was the chief character; if individuals do emerge from the rank and file it is only for a short time. It is a story of the weavers as a class that are ever before us, and the unity of the play lies in them and in them alone; they are only parts of a larger picture which takes shape as the story progresses.

Notices Are Sent Out [Newspaper Article] — Corsair — 1 April 1930

Notices Are Sent Out Sad news is spreading itself among the few unfortunates who fail to convince their instructors that they possess that quality —brains —which enables them to aspire to the heights of worldly wisdom. "Cinch" notices have been sent out to those who have merited them. There must be something in Marie Karl's personality, or mayhap in those "beautiful liquid pools," for it seems that this young damsel's chief occupation is ' "inspiring" hopeful would-be poets.

Ih a track meet hejd that same day, Miss Zelda Gottlieb defeated the former world's champion, Miss Yvonne Johns, in the one hundred and fifty-two and one-half yard dash.

Atoms Divided in Laboratory Works [Newspaper Article] — Corsair — 1 April 1930

Atoms Divided in Laboratory Works At a great risk to life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness, not to mention the great danger from man-eating sharks, the accompanying picture was obtained by a valiant staff photographer of the Samojac. It clearly shows Mr. Frank Phipps, discovering two atoms living a double life In view of the fact that these atoms were ready at a moment's notice to disintegrate and become a menace to society, both Mr. Phipps and the photographer are to be complimented for their extreme bravery. It is reputed that there is only one thing worse than these atoms when they are in a frenzy, and that is a woman scorned. The next experiment which the professor will attempt is the isolation of the college student. When this is actually accomplished the Samojac will carry full details, and thus society will once more be benefitted by the paper that is "Worst with Naughtiest." SCOTT'S EMULSION

Student Body Given Free Card Lessons [Newspaper Article] — Corsair — 1 April 1930

Student Body Given Free Card Lessons At a recent student body assembly, Professor Eric Moore.-well known authority on bridge, thrilled his audience with some of the exploits that he has engaged in while working at his profession. Starting several years ago at his work, he was almost obliged to give up his trade. While attending a monstrous bridge party his back was so severely hurt as to almost necessitate his retirement. The accident occurred when he trumped his partner's ace, and his partner happened to be the well-known Jack Dempsey. The assembly was quite interested in the professor's explanation fo one hand which the professor held. While it was raining in the north, the west wind started

Police Station Is Visited Regularly [Newspaper Article] — Corsair — 1 April 1930

Police Station Is Visited Regularly During the past twenty-four hours, the police department has been visited by numerous prominent personages of the college. The crimes have ranged from aggravated robbery to mayhem. Among those names jotted down by the desk sergeant, the following have been noticeable. As yet no bond has been supplied by these people, and they are desirous that friends having a more sound financial standing than they possess, will make the necessary arrangements to secure their release. The persons and their specific charges follow: Jennie Press—cruelty to children; Ruth Hunt —breaking and entering (she is accused of breaking a certain red head's heart); Karm Singh —practicing voodooing without a license; Theodore Gross —panhandling, and carrying brass knuckles; Betty Sands —speeding, resisting arrest, disorderly conduct, and slapping desk sergeant; Sanford Watkins—aggravated robbery, stealing candy from Bernard Rogers; Fred Tsheppe —general principles; Harry Wills...

Scandal Rocks Political and Social Groups [Newspaper Article] — Corsair — 1 April 1930

Scandal Rocks Political and Social Groups Political circles of the Junior College were thrown into a frenzy of excitement yesterday with the announcement that the county grand jury -had returned indictments against Fred Tsheppe and Theodore Gross, well-known glad-handers and vote-buyers of the community, for ballot-stufting, bribery and corruption in political enterprises. The news so disrupted the college that a vacation has been called until next January, maybe. The indictments were returned by the grand jury after an extensive investigation into the actions of these two. At the first election it was found that Theodore Gross and his associated had amassed the unbelievable number of eleven votes, but by examination of the records the grand jury found Theodore and Fred had voted three times apiece. As this only makes six votes, and the other five could not be explained, the jury could do nothing other than to file on Theodore. It is rumored that they have been filing for three week...

Snipe Hunt Quiz Exploded at Last [Newspaper Article] — Corsair — 1 April 1930

Snipe Hunt Quiz Exploded at Last At a recent meeting of the administration, Dr. Bush clearly settled the matter of snipe-shooting which has troubled the authorjties lately. When the discussion was opened on the subject, Dr. Bush ei- hibited three snipes, much the worse for wear, which had been found in the hallway, and by his argument showed the board that the Junior College was not responsible for the condition of the snipes. It had been rumored that the Junior College was setting a bad example for the high school students and many authorities of the high school had agreed with this view. It was not until after Dr. Bush's speech that this view was Shown to be absurd. When approached on the subject, Dr. Bush showed reticence to explain his stand. Only by cleverly questioning him was a reporter able to ascertain the real facts of the case. It seems that when the snipes were subjected to a chemical test it was found that alcohol had been deposited on the tip of each. As it is a well-k...

Gussie Cops Match Two Falls to One [Newspaper Article] — Corsair — 1 April 1930

Gussie Cops Match Two Falls to One Clearly outplaying her opponent in every phase of the game, Pat "Gussie" Stelzriede earned a clear-cut decision over "Strangler" Lewis in a no-time-limit match at the Olympic auditorium last night. By taking the first and last falls Pat won the plaudits of the crowd and also the referee's decision. The first fall was won in two and threefifths seconds with a quadruple reverse flying mare. The second, which was won by Lewis after eighteen hours and one minute of tough going, was taken with a straight left over to the exterior controvlexus anteriorplosis. The third and deciding fall kept the spectators on each other's feet for eighty-two and ten-sevenths seconds. Gussie collected this and the decision with an airplane, automobile, wheel-barrow roll, combined with a wrist-watch struggle of no mean proportion. With the winning of this match there is no more to keep Pat from meeting the champion. It is rumored that the champ is afraid to meet Pat withou...

Reditorials [Newspaper Article] — Corsair — 1 April 1930

Reditorials There is no doubt but that the action of the administration in insisting that the college have a baseball team will meet with the stern opposition of the male members of the student body. At no time in history has it been the rule for the men of a college to have to enter into sports which they do not desire. When the administration insisted that the men play basketball, track, tennis, golf, and swimming, there was little dissension. Now that they insist the men must take up the game of baseball it is the duty of every man to refuse. If we can't have the sports we wish-{-craps, poker, black jack, bull-throwing, blindfold testing, and speak-easy guessing-f-it is time that the men call a strike. -ARMOUS'S HAM The announcement of many of the professors that most of the students are making an A average clearly shows that none of the average college students may be said to attend Santa Monica Junior College. It will be best that the college hide the fact that so many A studen...

Party Enjoyed at La Ballona Creek [Newspaper Article] — Corsair — 1 April 1930

Party Enjoyed at La Ballona Creek A delightful week-end party was enjoyed by the elite of the college, at the home of Lois Smith, notorious lady about town. Although the party was raided only eight times in the course of two days and three nights, those present voted that it was by far the best party in some time. The affair started Friday night in the Del Rey hills and ended Sunday night in La Ballbna creek. The meals were all enjoyed at the Midnight Mission, and amidst the quaffing of hot mulligan, popping corks, and breaking glass, the party waxed merrier and merrier. The dance of the hundred beads (ninetynine sweat) which was presented by "Johnny" Johns, easily took the cake. As every other person in attendance was taking whatever wasn't tied down, the cake was all that she could get. The kiddie kar kontest was enlivened by the entrance of Victor Thomas, whose straight eight clearly outclassed the rest of the field. All day Sunday was spent in preparation of assignments which we...

BOOK REVIEW [Newspaper Article] — Corsair — 1 April 1930

BOOK REVIEW The Specialist. This delightful human interest story clearly shows that American literature is taking a turn for the better. The colloquial expressions and dialect give a real tang of United Statesian. At no time has any book been published which should do so much to lift the American youth and youthess from the low level to which their minds have fallen. Not one single hint of the "dirt" which the average book contains is given in this delightful, sweet, homey-like novel. The main character quickly works his way into the heart of the reader, and every person reading the book immediately feels that this character has been a victim of circumstances, and if given a chance will do better. At some points in the book quite a question is raised in the reader's mind as to whether the author really knew his subject thoroughly. This question is exemplified by the account in the newspapers recently of a two-story structure, of the kind depicted in the book, which has been found in...

Love Letters Lost Women Go on Diets With a report which shook the business and residential district of Santa Monica, thieves blew open the safe which holds all the secrets of the illicit love affairs of the women of the Junior College. Letters which, it is reputed, would have netted the girls many thousands of dollars from unwary males, have been stolen, and with the publishing of this report it is rumored that the price of butter will go up. Chief among the letters stolen were the amorous epistles written by Drydon Bergeron. These letters were addressed to practically every woman vn college, and were the prize collection of the lot.

The ladies of the college have signified their intention of starting on the warpath again and obtaining more letters with which to work, as it is hardly proper for them to all go on a die...
