Members of Debate Teams Receive Pins [Newspaper Article] — Corsair — 1 April 1930
Members of Debate Teams Receive Pins Members of the debate teams will receive pins for their forensic efforts. Messrs. Redden and Patterson will be given pins set with two pearls, due to the fact that they have participated in two league debates. Miss Lucile Williams, and Messrs. Sanford Watkins and Hampton Worthy will each receive pins set with one pearl. These students, who have contributed to the representation of the school among other junior colleges as much as anyone, should be complimented on their fine work. Although beaten in their debates the first semester, and also shaded by a slight margin in the second semester debates, they have done very well, and in each case extended their opponents to the utmost.

Osterholt Gives Advice on Health [Newspaper Article] — Corsair — 1 April 1930
Osterholt Gives Advice on Health Many of the Junior College students who are competing for positions on the athletic teams are interested in knowing the proper diet to be maintained during the season. Before going into the list of foods to be eaten, a few general remarks might be appropriate. The properly balanced diet alone does not determine, by any means, the training of an athlete. Hours of sleep, habits, and evenness of temperament are valuable factors which make for improved athletic performance, and these must not be disregarded if the individual maximum efficiency is to be realized. Olympic champions in all sports find the best hours of sleep are obtained from 10 p. m. to 6:30 a. m. Immediately upon arising, stretching and deep breathing are prescribed, after which a tub or shower is taken. The physical benefits from these activities are only derived through consistency every day of the season. Only through forming such health habits can the athlete get into the pink of cond...
Bound Copies May Be Purchased Now [Newspaper Article] — Corsair — 1 April 1930
Bound Copies May Be Purchased Now In lieu of the fact that no annual is to be published until next year, students are informed that a complete record of the school may be purchased for a very nominal sum from Shelley B. Miller, of the p/int shop, in the form of a bound copy of the Samojac. The price of this bound copy will be thirty-five cents, which is the exact cost to the department of binding the copies. Last semester students are informed that they may purchase last year's papers also, and in this way have something to look back at in the years to come. Mr. Miller wishes to stress the fact that only a limited supply of the bound copies may be purchased, so students are urged to get their order in early for these real worthwhile mementos.

Frank said he would look up the old records and see if he had established a new record.

S. M. T rack T earn ShowsMoreClass [Newspaper Article] — Corsair — 1 April 1930
S. M. T rack T earn ShowsMoreClass Despite the fact that the Santa Monica track team lost its meet with the Compton Junior College, they showed a marked improvement over their former showing against Pasadena. Stanley White chalked up four points for Santa Monica when he finished second in the 220-yard dash and third in the century sprint. He ran the 220-yard distance in the fast time of 22.8 seconds, one-fifth of a second behind the winner. Captain Frank Watson took third place in the pole vault, and tied for third in the high jump, for a total of one and one-half points. Stuart Mason, Harry Wills, George Drake and Ray Davis each made one point. Because Santa Monica did not enter any men in the high hurdles, two Compton men, Towns and Crawford, ran an exhibition race, finishing neck and neck in the fast time of 15.6 seconds. The Compton four-man one mile relay team also ran an exhibition race to set a new school record for this event. Santa Monica competes with Long Beach next Satur...

TARGET PRACTICE [Newspaper Article] — Corsair — 1 April 1930
TARGET PRACTICE Some person made the wise-crack that pitting Santa Monica, in track, against any other junior college was like matching Billy Townsend and Prlmo Carnero in fighting. Mebbe so! That wise-cracking person evidently had read the Sunday Examiner. One can't blame the writers, though, for saying we were crushed. The only thing that saved our necks was the fact that we have men like Drake, Mason, White, Davis and Watson, who have upheld the Orange and Gray on the cinder-path. Incidentally, Drake was the man that came in first for Santa Monica in the cross-country run at Glendale last fall. Paper may not show much, but I'll bet that more than one Compton man had to arch his back to keep from bringing up the rear. I know that Holdsworth didn't take things very easy in the 220. He had to make tracks. The Samojac just received the report that Jack Rose is in the hospital again. Jack has had a bit of hard luck during the past two semesters, with illness, and his loss to the baske...
