Where Are the Books Going? [Newspaper Article] — Corsair — 29 April 1930
Where Are the Books Going? Into the fabric of honesty and straightforwardness which is the fundamental quality of the student body policy, has crept the serpent of that evil known in modern times as "lifting." Perhaps Necessity, the mother of invention, is also the maternal backer of this light-fingered vice. But, whatever the cause may be, it certainly cannot tip the balance against the honesty which goes to make up the character of every student. Several students have missed books, some of them quite valuable. It is a sad —a very sad —state of affairs when a few students stoop low enough to steal from their fellows. This condition must be guarded against, or else annihilated. What about the latter? Everyone try to remedy this drawback. Some can do so more than others.
Thanks, Long Beach [Newspaper Article] — Corsair — 29 April 1930
Thanks, Long Beach The editorial which has been posted on the bulletin board for the past week, was clipped from the Long Beach "Viking." Santa Monica is happy that the Long Beach students believe we have a lot of school spirit. True, the track team has gone to meet after meet and taken an awful beating. And they have done this .without a rooter to spur them on. The fact that the meets were away from home is no excuse, some of the students could have accompanied them. We are glad that other schools have recognized us as an up-and-coming institution, but this record should not be made by a few and then enjoyed by the rest of the college. In order to maintain the place which we have attained it will be necessary for the student body to co-operate to a much larger degree than they have so far. BRIAR ROSE
Spring Fever Prevalent [Newspaper Article] — Corsair — 29 April 1930
Spring Fever Prevalent Funny as it seems, a vacation did in no way "pep" the student body up. The vacation seemed only to act as another of the incidents which make lazy students lazier. During the week we had off, much constructive work could have been accomplished, yet it is safe to say that only about one-half of one percent of the students did any studying at all. After the number of "cinch" notices sent out it is surprising there were no more persons working with his or her books than the work now being done in class indicates. Students seem to think that the professor is the one who suffers; well, maybe they do, but not over the fact that YOU aren't studying. They may worry over their golf scores, but if you fail, they will draw their pay checks just the same. So, students, it's up to you to get the work done, and not be satisfied to "get by."
STAGE-SCREEN [Newspaper Article] — Corsair — 29 April 1930
STAGE-SCREEN Mammy. A 1 Jolson makes another picture which isn't worth showing on Main Street. He hasn't a friend in Hollywood now, and after this shows a while he won't have one in the world. Journey's End. As a picture this is slightly disappointing if one has seen the play. It is well done, but that is due to the characters from the original production being in it. Love 'Em and Leave 'Em. The title, though it is part of a well-known expression, is not to pre-suppose that the play is as the saying. A good comedy classic. The Blue Ghost. A rip-roaring hairraiser that will make one look under the bed before retiring at night. Song o'My Heart. John McCormack, for all he has been hitting the bottle for the past few years, still has a few sweet notes left in what was once a heavenly voice. Rah Rah Daze. About as clever a campus comedy as has ever been put on. Waring's Pennsylvanians are worth the price of the ticket by themselves. Mission Play. The nineteenth season of the remarkable s...

BOOK REVIEW [Newspaper Article] — Corsair — 29 April 1930
BOOK REVIEW Mr. and Mrs. Sen, Louise Jordan Miln A. L. Burt and Company. The story of an inter-racial marriage; an English girl of noble blood with a Chinese diplomat of royal blood. Xhe book smells strongly of lavender and old lace, and is about as flimsy in body. An Arctic Rodeo, by Daniel W. Putnam's Sons. This work, for it cannot be called a travelog, and certainly is not a novel, is one of those rare books that are really different, and interestingly so. An Arctic Rodeo —it sounds foolish and it is foolish as an idea, yet it is an excellent description of the story which is satirical from the preface to the final quotation mark. It is brilliant and scintillating with wit. It is the story of an arctic expedition with the usual miscellaneous assortment of men. The author recounts the tale with the brilliance of a "Congressman at Large." Mr. Streeter also wrote, "Denatured Africa" and "Camels," both of which have been very successful.
Coach Bill Osterholt Gives Pointers On Health Practices [Newspaper Article] — Corsair — 29 April 1930
Coach Bill Osterholt Gives Pointers On Health Practices The subject discussed in this issue will be of great interest to the majority of students; that of ring-worm of the hands and feet. This infection, more commonly known as "soft corns" or "athletic foot," has spread at an alarming rate in the last few years, and a conservative estimate of the number of people having this trouble is put at 60 percent of the total population. The ring-worm is a parasitic fungus growth which thrives under the second and third layer of skin of the hands and feet. It is rarely known to exist on other parts of the body, and it is most commonly found between the toes and fingers. The ring-worm is a close relative to the mould that grows on stale bread, it being an organism with high resisting power to treatment. Laboratory testing of this organism has found that it can survive after fifteen minutes of boiling and, to date, there has not been found an absolute cure. However, there are many treatments wh...
W. A. A. Hear Talk By U. C. L. A. Head [Newspaper Article] — Corsair — 29 April 1930
W. A. A. Hear Talk By U. C. L. A. Head The W. A. A.'s system of awards at U. C. L. A. was the topic of Miss M. Cubberly of the physical education department at U. C. L. A. at the W. A. A. assembly which was held the third period Tuesday, April 8. Miss Cubberly pointed out in her talk that it was very childish to receive so many points for this and so many points for that, in order to get an honor; she also showed that the ideals must be of a high standard. Miss Cubberly said that people should come out for sports because of the love of sports, and not because they are getting paid for what they are doing. The W. A. A. of U. C. L. A. has based its system of awards on seven ideals, which are: leadership, scholarship, sportsmanship, college spirit, only upper classwomen eligible for awards, 'good appearance and posture, and technical skill. There will soon be a W. A. A. meeting so that everyone may express his ideas on this subject. Also a date for a beach party will be decided upon. B...
German Students Hold Early Class [Newspaper Article] — Corsair — 29 April 1930
German Students Hold Early Class Members of Mrs. Cejudo's sixth period German class will become the early birds of the school from now on, for this benevolent teacher has put a ban on the services of the said students from 7:30 o'clock until 8:00 o'clock in the morning. The reason for it all is that the students are not so lively in absorbing explanation as Mrs. Cejudo thinks they should be.
Make Up Class to Be Started Soon [Newspaper Article] — Corsair — 29 April 1930
Make Up Class to Be Started Soon A make-up class was started in the High School last term, and since then many of the J. C. students have taken an interest in this activity. This class ia directed under the competent leadership of Dorothy Pointer, a High School senior; who has at least two years' experience in this work; the sponsor of this class is Miss Olive Morris of the high school faculty. Miss Pointer has pointed out that makeup plays a very important part in drama, in that a play is not complete without make-up; it is an asset to anyone interested in dramatics or stage work. Those J. C. students who are interested in this particular class may see Dorothy Pointer or Miss Olive Morris of the high school at any time. " Make-up work in the Bay District," states Miss Pointer, "is in much demand." BRIAR ROSE
Flowers Collected By Botany Studes [Newspaper Article] — Corsair — 29 April 1930
Flowers Collected By Botany Studes These lovely spring days were just the thing for Professor Meeuwenberg to test the ability of his botany class to recognize a plant when they saw it; so he demanded that each member collect some specimens and bring them in. Six of the fair students decided that Wednesday of vacation would be the day, and Santa Monica Canyon the place. The*party began their quest for the rare spring blossoms and ended up near the Palisades for lunch. Lunch over, it was decided that the beach and the cool ocean breezes were far more attractive than the wild flowers. Those collecting the flowers were Myrtle Fletcher, Betty Livingston, Lewise Lewis, Lucile Williams, Adele Winn and Helen Stelzriede. Believe it or not, the girls hiked seven or eight miles.

HUMOR [Newspaper Article] — Corsair — 29 April 1930
HUMOR A little boy was giving his conception of a goose, and this is what he said: "A goose is a low, heavy-set bird, mostly meat and feathers. He has noghting between his toes. His head sits on one end and he sits on the other. Some gooses has curls on the end of their tails; they are called ganders. Ganders don't have to sit and hatch all day, they just eat an' loaf an' go swimmin'. If I was a goose I'd rather be a gander."
Pigskin Toters Galavant About In New Outfits [Newspaper Article] — Corsair — 29 April 1930
Pigskin Toters Galavant About In New Outfits With spring football practice only a week old the prospects for a good team next fall look very bright. So far there are about thirty men working out, and there is still room for a few more. Coach Osterholt is looking forward to a very successful team because the linemen are packing plenty of weight, and the backs are fast and brainy. At the present time the linesmen are being instructed in tricks pertaining to their respective positions, and the backs are learning the ways to handle the ball. The Corsairs are being handicapped insofar as they haven't a permanent place to practice, but at the present time are using the lawn at the back of the Greek theater, and the high school field. Working with the |unior college men are several high school seniors who intend to wear the orange-and-grav next fall. The following men are reporting daily for practice: Wills, Isaacs, Redden, Fish, Watson, Rankin, Monfesmith, Kasl,Jester, Fredericks, Ahlgrim...
Cinder Artists to Hold Banquet Soon [Newspaper Article] — Corsair — 29 April 1930
Cinder Artists to Hold Banquet Soon A banquet be held at the Carmel Hotel this coming Monday night for the members of the track team. At that time the captain of the squad for next year will be elected. This will be an event where the men can "break training." Everything will be on the menu which a track man in training wouldn't eat, and the fellows will be glad to indulge in some sweets once more. Coach Osterholt is the originator of the plan, and when placed before the squad met with hearty approval. Other members of the faculty, male, will probably be present at the banquet, which will probably deteriorate into one of the wellknown college "bull" sessions. BRIAR ROSE-

Finish Organizing Lettermen's Club [Newspaper Article] — Corsair — 29 April 1930
Finish Organizing Lettermen's Club The Letterman's Club, official organization of all men having received a major sport award, will begin to function as a group immediately after the awarding of the track letters. At that time the basketball lettermen and track lettermen will begin work in what will probably be the most energetic organization on the campus. Only major sport lettermen will be eligible for this club, and it is believed a subsidiary organization of those receiving minor sport awards will be formed next semester. One of the duties of the club will be that of "controlling'" the freshmen during the next year. Rules and regulations for the "Frosh" to follow will be drawn up and will be rigidly enforced.

Track Men Show Gain At L. A. J. C. [Newspaper Article] — Corsair — 29 April 1930
Track Men Show Gain At L. A. J. C. The Santa Monica track team showed a lot of fire and grit against the L. A. J. C. track squad last Wednesday at Los Angeles. Although they lost the meet the team displayed a marked improvement. Davis was high-point man with eleven points, taking a first in the shot-put and the discus, and a third in the javelin. His heave of 110 feet in the discus was very good —the best he has done this year. He put the shot feet and manzged to fling the javelin feet. Wills chalked up another first place for his alma mater by winning the 440 in the exceptionally good time of 53.5 seconds. Captain Watson and Drake tied for third high point honors with three points each. Watson tied for second place in the pole vault and took third in the low hurdles. Drake took second in the mile. Mason, Magee, White, Guida, Burnett, Delp, and Reno made a point apiece. On May 3 Santa Monica will be represented by nine men in the Southern California Junior College meet at Chaffey. B...
