Modesty of Faculty Golfers too Marked [Newspaper Article] — Corsair — 29 April 1930
Modesty of Faculty Golfers too Marked In keeping with the old-time idea of ball-chasing for recreation, several of the faculty have been ditching the Saturday house-cleaning chores to satisfy the appetite of the golf bug. Dr. R. H. Bush and Messrs. E. C. Sandmeyer and C. F. Phipps are making weekly trips to the various golf courses in the vicinity, and sometimes Mr. E. R. Coulson and Mr. Fairchild of the high school faculty, try their hand at the art of hitting the pellet with the broad side of a barn. Mr. Coulson may have some difficulty in getting on to the fine points of the game because of a certain proclivity of his to call out three-ninety-nine instead of fore. However, a little practice will overcome that slight error in counting. The modesty of these men is amazing. You ask one how the golf game is coming on and he says fine. Mr. Sandmeyer or Mr. Phipps or Dr. Bush is best one of the three. "Always belittling" each other. That last remark with apologies to Percy Crosby. BRIA...

TARGET PRACTICE [Newspaper Article] — Corsair — 29 April 1930
TARGET PRACTICE After reading the editorial in the Long Beach J. C. paper we cannot help but feel "them soothing woids"; we need something to soothe the savage breast. However, we appreciate the spirit in which the articles were written and will admit that school spirit is a major sport around Santa Monica. Many thanks, gentlemen. The mere fact that the Viking staff condescended to mention the name of Santa Monica in its paper after such a lop-sided affair is enough to prove their sincerity. We, of course, don't feel hurt over being one of the participants in a world-record-breaking event, but; —well, as we satd before, many thanks, gentlemen. The golf team just about set themselves on their ears by neglecting to hand in their eligibility cards on time. It would have been just too bad if all of them had done the same thing. Another record-breaking affair would have been in vogue. This idea of school spirit keeps popping up all the time. There are three representatives of that colleg...

The Compton team is not a bit slow either, and Santa Monica is preparing for an interesting match BRIAR ROSE

Martin Trades in Old Jalopie for Late Conveyance [Newspaper Article] — Corsair — 20 May 1930
Martin Trades in Old Jalopie for Late Conveyance Automobile row of Santa Monica was rocked to its very foundations when Mr. Martin, superintendent of schools, purchased a new car. Salesmen from every distributor in the city had vied with each other to make the sale —Packard, RollsRoyce, Mercedes-Benz, Ford, Chevrolet, and even the new Austin, representatives were on hand at his office from morning to night. Then the unexpected happened. Keeping the family customs to date intact, Mr. Martin bought a vehicle with a French name. Hence the saying, "It's an old French custom." His father, it seems, had a mania for French articles, having had one of the best collections of French picture postal cards in the country, his sisters are the inveterate users of French perfumes, and his children are consumers of every variety of French pastry. So if, when crossing Fourth and the boulevard, you are forced to seek the safety of the pedestrian-crossing, by some rabid motorist, take another look, an...

Coulson Chosen To Head Faculty Teams At a special meeting held in the faculty conference room this morning, Dr. Bush named Mr. Edwin Coulson to act as head of forming several faculty teams to engage in matches with teams picked from the Junior College students.

Bridge was suggested, but was turned down when it was found that most of the faculty were in favor of casino.
