Joe Wonder Kicked Out of Dance Hall [Newspaper Article] — Corsair — 29 April 1930
Joe Wonder Kicked Out of Dance Hall People with lofty ideals sometimes have them set at nought. Illustrious Joseph Wonder, so a certain debonair little redhead gives out, will not let himself be seen in the dance halls in Ocean Park. One night, however, Joe and this certain miss had a yen for dancing, and as they happened to be passing one of the notorious dance halls, they dropped in. If it were not for the fact that haughty Mr. Wonder had on cords, he might have spent the evening dancing dreamily to the soft music which makes one think of —oh, well. But Joe did have on cords — consequently he found himself outside the doors of this amusement center of his scorn, looking with a red face at a girl with red hair on the inside doubled up in convulsive laughter. Now, now, Josie, never you mind. BRIAR ROSE-

The Freedom of Discipline [Newspaper Article] — Corsair — 29 April 1930
The Freedom of Discipline Rules for schools, like laws for countries, are made for one of two specific purposes: first, to state and indicate the right, so that right may be done, and second, to state or indicate the wrong, so that wrong may be avoided. Just as long as laws are obeyed there is perfect freedom from all sense of oppression, all sense of offensiveness, and in addition, the satisfaction and comfort of the law's protection is experienced. On the other hand, just as soon as laws are broken, in fact just at that very moment, freedom vanishes and we incur and deserve the just penalties which should come to' all law breakers.—M. F.
