Snapshot Contest [Newspaper Article] — Corsair — 20 May 1930
Snapshot Contest A contest for pictures to be included in the annual of next year, will begin next week. These pictures may, of course, range from those of the more serious element to the ludicrous ones. As a matter of fact, the more humorous the better. Eric Moore, in charge of this work, suggests that each club supervise the taking of its own picture, which they will turn in to him. If the presidents of the various clubs find it convenient to do this, they are requested to acquaint Mr. Moore with the fact, and he will see that the matter is taken care of. Pictures will also be taken next week of as many of the following as possible: A. W. S. officers, W. A. A. officers, faculty, debate team, orchestra, Samojac staff. Members of the above will be notified on the bulletin board when the pictures are to be taken. Don't forget the contest. Bring in as many pictures as possible.
Some Students Here Aren't So Good [Newspaper Article] — Corsair — 20 May 1930
Some Students Here Aren't So Good Persons on the campus finding themselves with spare time on their hands seem to have the idea, lately, of forming organizations distinctly outside the limits of the law. Instead of spending time in this foolish way, why don't they get in some of the organizations already running, and thus help make them more successful? Yet, maybe these organizations aren't quite distinctive and restrictive enough for them. If these persons feel they are above the proletariat in school, why don't they transfer to some other institution, preferably some colleges where class consciousness is practiced more. If they did, they probably wouldn't be able to "make" the organization they desired, so they probably aren't so good after all.
Suggest Plan [Newspaper Article] — Corsair — 20 May 1930
Suggest Plan Members of the Cosmopolitan Club suggested at their last meeting that all the clubs in the school join in giving one big program at the last of the year. Each club, according to this plan, would arrange its own program for the gala event. This idea has not heretofore been presented to members of the other clubs. Presidents might present the plan to their respective members, and bring into a council of the presidents the final vote of their clubs. Undoubtedly this arrangement would be the most varied and entertaining of the year. Indeed it deserves serious thought.

BOOK REVIEW [Newspaper Article] — Corsair — 20 May 1930
BOOK REVIEW The Bovine Family, B. Rogers. H. A. Bull &amp; Co., N. M. 1930. This treatise on cows by Bernard, not "Will" Rogers is expressly intended for certain members of the faculty who seem to be under the impression that cows are cows, whether they are called "Bossy," "Daisy," or "Nanny" (diminutive of "Nancy"), which, Mr. Rogers points out, is hardly the case. As a specialist on the subject he states the number of faucets determines the nomenclature. He says, in fact, those with three to four only, are cows. The four-tap variety being general, whereas the three-tap variety exists only in the wilds of Arkansas (according to local authority, as he points out). Those with two or less, he claims, are in reailty goats. The name "Nanny," he says, is usually not given to any but the goat variety. The book as dedicated tersely to "Shorty."

T ennis Team T rips O'er Hill and Dale [Newspaper Article] — Corsair — 20 May 1930
T ennis Team T rips O'er Hill and Dale The tennis team took the afternoon off Thursday, and traveled to Riverside. Besides seeing considerable of the beautiful scenery of Southern California, they also looked over the feminine pulchritude of several of the cities between Santa Monica and Riverside and return. After being assured at the Riverside J. C. that no matches would be played that day, they traveled to Colton in quest of free eats at the former home of Kenny Elgin. The feed not being forthcoming they continued to San Berdoo J. C. and there played several matches among themselves on the courts of that institution. This proving not very interesting, they started for the wilds of Santa Monica and only stopped at Claremont, where a horse show was in progress at Scripps College. After judging the horses, not to mention the riders, the squad continued homeward, and arrived there very sore, both of spirits and body.

Experiments Worked By Physics Students Starting Friday, May 9, Mr. Phipps' advanced physics class engaged in several very interesting experiments. Chief among these is one finding whether one is getting his money's worth when using gas as a heating agent. The experiment is comprehensive in its scope, and the class vies in the accuracy of the results. Another of the group of experiments is to determine the melting and fusing points of metals. This experiment is interesting, and Mr. Phipps has quite a bit of trouble keeping the class from experimenting all the time. The chemistry department is busy in rounding up the season. Mr. Phipps gave the class quite an interesting lecture on some electrical phenomena and cleared up many of the vague points in the minds of the chemistry students who could not s quite clearly understand this field.
Pre-Registration At S. B. Assembly [Newspaper Article] — Corsair — 20 May 1930
Pre-Registration At S. B. Assembly At a comuplsory assembly Tuesday, May 13, Dr. Ralph H. Bush instructed students in the matter of pre-registration. Each student filled out a card listing his subjects pursued during the present term. Dr. Bush will have personal interviews with every student this week and next concerning the subjects to be carried the next semester. Several new classes will be formed in the fall, such as geology, philosophy and psychology, which will necessitate additions to the present faculty. Dr. Bush explained that the students enrolled at present will have preference over new pupils in the matter of enrolling in the various classes. In case some student already signed up for certain classes should drop out of school, the dean wishes that he write him a postcard to that effect. In this way, newcomers will be able to join classes which they desire, but which they could not do because they had been filled by old students.
