Field House Occupied By Men's Classes [Newspaper Article] — Corsair — 15 October 1929
Field House Occupied By Men's Classes The men's new field house is open for use, and the physical education classes are able to be conducted without conflict with the high school classes. Basketballs and footballs add to the exercise of the classes. The house itself is something to arouse the pride of any man. There are accommodations for one hundred and fifty men, and quarters for the coaches. An instantaneous heater has been installed that produces eight gallons of water a minute at a temperature of one hundred and forty degrees. This is enough water for two hundred men. The "yard" has two basketball courts. These will be leveled and graded, and will be used for the J. C. outdoor workouts. The rest of the yard will be graded in due time, and will make a more adequate training ground.
Faculty Fur Flies; Fair Fun Furnished [Newspaper Article] — Corsair — 15 October 1929
Faculty Fur Flies; Fair Fun Furnished A serious break in the relations between members of the faculty is liable to occur at any moment. The dissension has risen to such a high point that Dr. Bush has contemplated asking the governor to send the state militia to S. M. J. C. to help settle the controversy. The break came Tuesday afternoon when it was suggested that material be bought to make curtains for the faculty conference room. Mrs. Cejudo suggested using a Mexican pattern but was vigorously opposed by Mr. Wallbank who said it would necessitate the indulgence in frijoles, tortillas, enchiladas and sundry" other dainties of the Latin Americans. As he has a very weak stomach he felt that something more futuristic should be used. At this time Mr. Phipps entered and was drawn into the argument much against his pacific nature. When cornered by Coach Osterholt and Mr. Sandmeyer he was made to confess that perhaps his wife would know more about it than he. In the meantime personalities ...

The Hi-boys had 19 points at the end though, spoiling a good football game for Westwood.

Basketball Season Started Tearns Work Hard In Practice Drop First Game to Church The Corsairs dropped the first practice game of the season to the Immanue! Presbyterian Church squad to the tune of 34-24. The men showed some real basketball at times, but, pitted against an aggregation of experienced men, it was no ordinary task. It is not known exactly what the reaction of the game was to the coach, but it is 9known that some valuable information was uncovered. Several shifts in the combination will be made to determine some smoother working combinations. This church team is composed of excollege stars, representing U. S. C., U. C. L. A., Stanford, Princeton and Michigan, and they can play "like nobody's business." The game was a good work-out. Practice is being held Monday, Wednesday and Friday, from 3:45 to 5:00 o'clock. Because of the large turnout the men are put through their paces in the "Yard" two days a week. This enables the coach to keep every man busy. The remaining night ...

Charges Preferred Against Faculty Found guilty of beating three little innocent white pellets, Messrs. Bush, Phipps and Sandmeyer will appear before the Society for Prevention of Cruelty to Golf Balls for punishment. This being Dr. Bush's first offense, however, his sentence will be light. All joking aside, though, golf is a real game, and these men must be prettygood. Judging from the silence after each match, we take it to be pure modesty that no scores are mentioned.
