Captains Prevail In Watson Family [Newspaper Article] — Corsair — 3 June 1930
Captains Prevail In Watson Family Santa Monica as a city is proud of raising families which show decided aptitude along certain lines. Tennis families have featured, and also parents have shown a marked aptitude of raising beautiful daughters. The latter of course predominate.

Charges are to be filed against the young man — to animals.

Trophy Case Holds Pentathlon Award [Newspaper Article] — Corsair — 3 June 1930
Trophy Case Holds Pentathlon Award Look ye! The Pentathlon cup is on display in the trophy room, and all of the aspirants for that award had better take a look before somebody takes it for good. It is a hot-appearing decanter, and it has plenty of room for names. Coach Bill Osterholt is running off the events as fast as possible, and the spirit of competition has sunk in deep. Not enough men have competed so far, to judge or to predict any startling results, but it can be said that certain young men have been showing their heels in most of their pet events. The coach is well satisfied with this, of course, but it is new material that is being looked for and is wanted for development. The new students in the Junior College will show their mettle in next year's competition.
Tennis and Golf Here Same Time [Newspaper Article] — Corsair — 3 June 1930
Tennis and Golf Here Same Time With a golf match at Glendale, June 7, and a tennis match here the same day, Santa Monica Jaysee's first year of intercollegiate athletic competition will be concluded. The golf team will miss Sanford Watkins, who has gone to Europe, but the members who will play Saturday are: Dryden Bergeron, "Iron Man" Grace, Vincent Donatelli, "Bud" Henn, and Stuart Mason. The tennis team with James Davis, Edward Hartung, Richard Rowe, Steven Robinson, Ray Davis, Harrison Reno, C. Yamada, and Art Redden, will be on hand to give Glendale a real fight. Glendale is "hot" because the Corsair basketball team gave them such a trouncing, and that is just the more reason why there will be a lot of fight shown by our racqueteers Saturday in their ultimo match.
Y. W. C. A. Elects Its New Officers [Newspaper Article] — Corsair — 3 June 1930
Y. W. C. A. Elects Its New Officers The important business of the Y. W. C. A. meeting held Monday evening, June 2, was the election of officers. The nomi- nations committee gave its report, and further nominations were made from the floor. Ruth Hunt and Adele Winn were re-elected president and secretary respectively, Betty Livingston vice-president, and Rae Booth treasurer. After the business meeting the girls began their series of discussions on modern literature. During the summer the group plans to attend the light operas at the Shrine Auditorium, and to read various books, to be reported on at the future meetings. Just because Mr. Coulson plaimed a certain book had a knotty problem in it, every girl in the class has started to read the book.
New Divot Diggers Makes Digging Debut [Newspaper Article] — Corsair — 3 June 1930
New Divot Diggers Makes Digging Debut The faculty interest in the pleasing pastime of chasing the little white pellet has gone so far that they have invested in some "mean" mallets. Mr. Edwin Coulson and Mr. Thomas Wallbank are the guilty ones, and they seem to find that the new clubs improve the game. Trying to get any information from these two erstwhile golfers is like trying to get an English paper in on time, or a Citizenship paper, for that matter. One would say that the other was the better player, and vice versa. However, one of these days a Samojac correspondent will sneak up on them and get the real dope, first hand. Meantime, we will leave everything to conjecture. Mr. Coulson did admit that he had a pretty good drive, and was practicing up his putting to take Mr. Wallbank down the line. Mr. Wallbank was a bit more conservative, and would not concede himself digging qualities at all.
TARGET PRACTICE [Newspaper Article] — Corsair — 3 June 1930
TARGET PRACTICE With the first indications of a drastic change in the organization of the secondary education system, the 6-4-4 plan, Santa Monica Junior College finds itself on a more even basis, athletically speaking. We will at least compete with schools who have a student-body enrollment similar to ours. And, no doubt, will make things more interesting in athletic competition. The radical movement in a new direction has caused more than ordinary comment, and, although all indications are in favor the new move, there is bound to be some remarks to the contrary. Even those schools benefited may squawk about something. Coach Bill Osterholt's idea to use future high school football candidates in conjuntcion with the Junior College spring pigskinners seems to have met with approval in a northern school, San Mateo, to be exact. Nothing like starting 'em early. These fellows will know the Jaysee system when they arrive.

S. B. Dance Is Riot of Color, Fun and Music [Newspaper Article] — Corsair — 10 June 1930
S. B. Dance Is Riot of Color, Fun and Music If a stranger had happened to wander in the vicinity of the Junior College, Friday evening, he would have thought himself to be amid the gaiety of a summer resort. Colorful Japanese lanterns shone from the south wing of the balcony, where the dance of the season was being held by the Student Body. Most inviting music floated out into the moonlight night, tempting one to gain entrance to the balcony in order to see the really lovely details of the setting. Stationed at the entrance were Adele Winn and Dorothy Murray, who were greeting guests in a most hospitable fashion. Immediately one was filled with the soothing Junenight atmosphere of the place. Potted palms and green ferns had been placed between the archways, and overhead a web of gaily-colored lights teamed with the Japanese lanterns to compete with the envious moon and stars. Attracted to the walls of the balcony by the view of the bay, which was dotted by welllighted boats, were de...
Johnson to Lead Women Next Year [Newspaper Article] — Corsair — 10 June 1930
Johnson to Lead Women Next Year Tuesday, June 9, the annual election of the Associated Wcynen Students' officers took place. Much interest was displayed by the women, in that a large number turned out to vote. The new officers are: President, Margaret Johnson; Vice-Presi-dent, Regina Bender; Secretary, Myrtle Fletcher; and Treasurer, Betty Livingston. These new officers will not be installed until the first Women's assembly next fall when school reopens. The reason for this is that many new girls enrolling would not become acquainted with their officers during the entire semester if they were not given this opportunity of being presented before the assembly. The appointive officers will probably be made by the new board next year immediately after the installation of the elective officers. It is hoped that this new cabinet will have the support of the entire group of Women students.

Dr. Ralph Bush Congratulates Student Spirit [Newspaper Article] — Corsair — 10 June 1930
Dr. Ralph Bush Congratulates Student Spirit "As the school year draws to a close it might be well for us to review what has been accomplished. During the year the Junior College has become established on a firm basis. Courses on strictly college level have been organized and successfully completed. Beginnings of a guidance program have been established, part of which have been represented by the faculty conference room and the series of parallel curricular offerings that are found in the College catalogue. The student body is thoroughly on its feet, with its president and the commission attending to all the intricate details of student affairs. Under its jurisdiction the various clubs and social life have been developed. "Athletically Santa Monica Junior College is a member of the Southern California Junior College Conference, and Junior College teams have represented us in five different branches of sport. Forensically we have participated in the regular Conference debates. "Perhap...
J. C. Popularity is Proven by Growth [Newspaper Article] — Corsair — 10 June 1930
J. C. Popularity is Proven by Growth That junior colleges of the country are steadily gaining in popularity is evidenced by latest reports available. The number of students attending these institutions far exceeds ordinary calculations. The number of students is increasing far faster than the number of institutions. At present there are 395 junior colleges in the country. At present there are more than 51,000 students in attendance at these institutions. More than4#9l,ooo,ooo is expended in equipment, and every state but five has these junior colleges. Texas has 43, California 36, and other states have a large number. Strange as it may seem, many of the junior colleges grew up from church colleges, 195, in fact, being derived from this source. 183 colleges have less than one hundred students in attendance, and some have as low as 7. Antelope Valley Junior College in Southern California has 11. These colleges are being supported in many different ways. 115 are supported by city taxes...

Beach Party Held Last Friday a number of young people attended an all-day beach party at Castellamare. The usual feature of that particular type of party was enjoyed until an old-fashioned windstorm came along in the afternoon and blew up the affair, so to speak. Among the participants were: Adele Winn,' Dorothy Murray, Lewise Lewis, Regine Bander, Everett Hartung, Bernard Rogers, Morse Little, Eric Moore, and Stanley White.
