Goodbye Samojac [Newspaper Article] — Corsair — 10 June 1930
Goodbye Samojac The first year of the College has ended, with a great future before us. During the past two semesters a paper has been issued every two weeks. The staff has worked hard and faithfully in the accomplishing of this, and there is no doubt but that the staff for next semester's paper will try to live up to the record made this year. To the editor of the Samojac for next semester, I wish to recommend a staff of the character and ability of the one which it was my fortune to have. I have enjoyed the work and hope that the student body has appreciated the efforts I have made to issue a publication which would be a credit to Santa Monica Junior College.—Art Redden.
Finances Sound [Newspaper Article] — Corsair — 10 June 1930
Finances Sound Attention of Junior College students and their parents is called to an article which appeared in the Santa Monica Outlook, in which it was shown that this Junior College occupies an enviable position among the colleges of the state in respect to finances. There is no doubt that a student attending this institution is in just as good a position as one attending the first two years of some university. The courses offered are parallel, and the instruction must be better, due to smaller classes, higher level of instructors, and the general all-around better conditions.
College "Parasites" [Newspaper Article] — Corsair — 10 June 1930
College "Parasites" College days for many students the past semester have meant only a continual round of pleasure. Tihey have not done a bit of constructive work the entire year, yet they attend college to see.just how many dates they can make. This is the kind of student, and that term hardly fits them, who makes the going "tough" for the rest of the persons attending the college, who are coming to see just how much they can derive from the work offered. It would not be a bad idea for these social parasites to drop out and not be filling a seat that some student who has the right view of college might occupy. Santa Monica J. C. has been quite proud of her scholastic record the past year, yet this same record could have been quite higher if these persons had been removed from the student body. Let's hope they drown this summer, or at least don't come back.
Year Has Been Profitable [Newspaper Article] — Corsair — 10 June 1930
Year Has Been Profitable A full school year has passed, and SANTA MONICA JUNIOR COLLEGE has found its place in the ranks of higher education. Not an easy task at all is the founding of a college. Vastly more difficult and trying is the "clicking" of the machinery. To be successful, a college must be useful; and the institution must have the co-operation which comes from common interest and sympathy. And SANTA MONICA JUNIOR COLLEGE functions with the smoothness of a well-oiled machine. From many fields comes the interest and aid which has made our college.possible. Last summer Dr. Bush and the faculty prepared to receive us, and labored to dissipate that strangeness which surrounds new scenes. By the courtesy of the high school and Board of Education, we have been given a wing of the administration building by the former, and such student body activities as required financial aid were subsidized by the latter. To the high school we extend our heartiest thanks for their spirit of open...
Professors Will Study, Travel This Summer [Newspaper Article] — Corsair — 10 June 1930
Professors Will Study, Travel This Summer If one were asked to call a meeting of all the members of the faculty of the Junior College, this summer, he would need more than one pair of the famous seven-league boots, for the instructors will be scattered from the Pacific to the Atlantic; at least Mr. Coulson believes he will get a glimpse of the latter on his 'way to New York. It seems that the faculty is like the postman who takes a walk on his day off, in that they will all be found dabbling in the Pierian Springs, which takes the shape of graduate work in summer session. Following is the instructors' itinerary: It seems that Dr. Ralph H. Bush is always in demand. Last summer found him teaching classes at the U. C. L. A. summer session, and in the S. C. post session. This summer his services have been requested in the summer school at the University of California at Berkeley. Dr. Bush has been asked to give courses in the "Principles of Secondary Education." His classes will be held...

Rowe Clicks [Newspaper Article] — Corsair — 10 June 1930
Rowe Clicks When Mr. Phipps remarked that Michel Faraday was called king of experiment because he could always find a way to solve them, Sorority Rowe suddenly came to life and asked what the chances were of getting him to join the class. What's the matter, Rowe, they getting you down? Do you know that the circulation of the Samohi, combined with that of the Los Angeles Examiner, is over 200,000? The only kings that wear crowns these days are those who have had trouble with their teeth.
Students Will Pack Ice, Cook Dogs, Travel, Eat, Sleep, and Play Golf [Newspaper Article] — Corsair — 10 June 1930
Students Will Pack Ice, Cook Dogs, Travel, Eat, Sleep, and Play Golf With the closing of school, students will be scattering with all four winds, to various parts of the globe, and occupying themselves in a number of ways. Some, whom the duty of school work has badly bent, wish merely to stay at home and relax on the warm sands of thr beach. Others have been touched by the wanderlust and are anxiously waiting the time when they can set foot on trails which lead from the deserts of Mexico to the snowclad peaks of Alaska. Then there are always the overly ambitious who attend summer school with dripping brows and an envious eye on their more fortunate friends who -are enjoying life traveling abroad or in various other ways. After cross-examining most of the student body, the following data, explaining their hide-outs for the summer, have been obtained: Junior Bryant will work for the City o Los Angeles, on the beaches. Bell and Roxine Waltz plan to take a vacation in the High Sierras. ...
Officers Elected For Next Semester [Newspaper Article] — Corsair — 10 June 1930
Officers Elected For Next Semester Elections for student body offices uncovered hot races for several of the offices. The new officers for next year are: Royal Delp, president; Bernard Rogers, vicepresident; Dorothy Murray, commissioner of arts; Maurine Davis, commissioner of records; Stanley Fish, commissioner of finance; John Reynolds, editor of the Samojac; and Frank Watson, commissioner of athletics. This new commission will be inaugurated the first week of school. They will then take over the duties of the present administration. Their work will be quite a bit heavier, due to the incoming freshmen. Mr. Sandmeyer will still continue in the capacity of student body cabinet adviser.
Marion Has Ex-s [Newspaper Article] — Corsair — 10 June 1930
Marion Has Ex-s Miss Marion Miller, secretary, has been busy lately, preparing stencils for the exams being given this week, and next. For the past week she has been trying to rush the exam blanks, and it is rumored that she has been considerably handicapped in her work by students rushing in at the last moment trying to find out how many cuts they have left in each class.
President Magee Plays Host For Cabinet Dinner [Newspaper Article] — Corsair — 10 June 1930
President Magee Plays Host For Cabinet Dinner Larry Magee, retiring student body president, was host to the members of the cabinet at his home, last Monday night. Those attending were: John Reynolds, Lucille Williams, Dorothy Murray, Adele Winn, Stanley Fish, Dryden Bergeron, and Art Redden. Clarence E. Sandmeyer also attended. The group had quite a merry time while engaging in dinner, with witty conversation being the chief piece de resistance. In fact at times the laughter grew to such volume that the neighbors began complaining. After the dinner the group divided and engaged in two mortal combats of bridge. Bergeron and Winn were sadly outclassed at the battle of wits with Williams and Redden, while at the other table it was found that bridge was too much mental effort so near to finals, and a compromise was effected. Therefore Fish, Reynolds, Murray, and Magee played hearts. Mr. Sandmeyer had to leave early, so avoided the rigors of the hard evening. Larry Magee
Tennis Team Cleans Citrus [Newspaper Article] — Corsair — 10 June 1930
Tennis Team Cleans Citrus Our Corsair tennis team handed the Citrus racqueteers the short end of a 13-10 score last Thursday afternoon, on our own courts. The team displayed a good brand of tennis and were able to down the visitors, without a great deal of trouble. Hartung, Rowe and Reno, playing second, third, and fourth singles, respectively, won their matches. Also Redden and Yamada, playing second doubles, showed that they had the right spirit, and came in the third set to tip the Citrites over. J. Davis lost a heartbreaker, as well as did R. Davis and Robinson playing first singles and first doubles. Estelle Holmes, unless something or other thwarts her present plans, is going to Canada. Rae Booth is anticipating a trip to New York. Some people have more luck than others.
A. Redden Wins Pentathlon Cup In Final Event [Newspaper Article] — Corsair — 10 June 1930
A. Redden Wins Pentathlon Cup In Final Event Art Redden, the dark horse of the fifth period gym class, came from behind to cop the Santa Monica Junior College Perpetual Pentathlon cup from a strong field of nineteen entrants. He amassed a total of 870 points out of a possible 1000. The other leading contestants were Ray Davis, who took second with 860 points; Kenny Elgan, third, with 850; Frank Watson, next in order, with 840 points, and Harrison Reno, who finished fifth with 830. From the start, last Tuesday, Ray Davis led the field with 390 points out of a possible 400, at the end of the four events. Last Thursday, Kenny Elgan and Frank Watson were tied for first with 730 points. Then, on the last day, Tuesday, Redden forged ahead to tie with Davis, but the "dark horse" had three more tries in the standing high jump. After two hairraising jumps he came through on the third to snatch the first leg of the trophy from the highly-touted Ray Davis. This is the second cup that Art has w...
Bill Athey to Lead Lettermen in Fall [Newspaper Article] — Corsair — 10 June 1930
Bill Athey to Lead Lettermen in Fall At the last meeting of the Lettermen's Club, Bill Athey, captain of last year's basketball team was elected president. Stan White was elected vice-president, George Drake, secretary-treasurer, and Royal Delp proctor. A constitution, drawn up by Coach Osterholt, Wallace Hickman and Royal Delp, was passed upon. It was decided that the minor sport lettermen would have the privilege of being associate members. Art Redden was appointed to get designs for a pin which is to be a silver block "S* M" with a Corsair's head embossed on the top of it, and the minor sport men's will be the same, only a bit smaller, in a circle. The Lettermen's Club is to act as disciplinary board for the incoming frosh. A set of rules, or a ''frosh bible" is being drawn up by the club. The lettermen supervised over the last election, thus proving that they are a responsible body and that they will be capable to handle the pea-green frosh next September.
Coach Osterholt Commends Spirit [Newspaper Article] — Corsair — 10 June 1930
Coach Osterholt Commends Spirit A final word is appropriate at this time, from Coach Osterholt, who has been in direct and intimate contact with the student body during the past year. In interview with the coach, special comment was made regarding the cooperative and unified college spirit developed in the student body as well as the confidence existing between the faculty and students. No small amount of credit for this condition should be g'iven the organization, from its beginning, of the Junior College, which can be directly attributed to Dr. Bush and to Mr. Barnum. The extracurricular activity program and athletics which have been offered for the first year have represented a great deal of effort and extra time for the different members of the faculty. However, the spirit and interest in which the students have entered in these activities have more than justified the time, effort, and expense of presentation The students can be well assured that this spirit and student body mor...
TARGET PRACTICE [Newspaper Article] — Corsair — 10 June 1930
TARGET PRACTICE With the close of the school year we find ourselves looking back on the work that this page tried to put out in that time. Generally it didn't look so hot. Not to have an inferiority complex or anything, but it must be admitted that the best was not in evidence at all times. On the other hand, we can say that under the circumstances the material wasn't so bad. In fact, it could have been worse. Next year under a new staff the sheet will progress a little more rapidly because of the experiences of the old staff. You know, there has been so much talk lately about poor sportsmanship that it is about time something is said about the good side. In the recent student-body elections there were some examples of that type of thing. Someone has to lose in an affair of that kind, and, believe me, the losers took the punch on the button like "real fellers."" No doubt everybody has heard the results of the Glendale-Santa Monica tennis match. If you haven't, best you lend an ear. ...
Corsair Tennis Tea?n Squelches Glendale Squad [Newspaper Article] — Corsair — 10 June 1930
Corsair Tennis Tea?n Squelches Glendale Squad The Corsair racqueteers terminated their season last Saturday on the home courts by overwhelmingly defeating the Glendale Buccaneers by a score of 23-0. Hartung played his usual style of tennis by mixing that slashing drive and the well known cut together, which usually means the game to him. J. Davis kept his opponent hopping times, trying to keep up with his well-placed cuts, and once in a w.hile mixing a drive in to a good advantage. Reno was present at third singles with his whirlwind serve and fast returns to keep his opponent out of running for even a smell at a set. Yamada kept his drives close to the net, and it was a question to the player if the ball was coming over or not; also his backhand drives were used to a very good advantage. Rowe and R. Davis, doubling up to play first doubles, made a formidable pair, having in reserve ' that which goes to make the points add up in your favor. The team deserves much credit for the show...
Helen Stelzriede Gives Tennis Cup [Newspaper Article] — Corsair — 10 June 1930
Helen Stelzriede Gives Tennis Cup Through the generosity of one of the woman students of the junior college, those women participating in the tennis tournament each year will have an added incentive to work for. Miss Helen Stelzriede has donated a cup upon which the winner of the women's tennis tournament will have her name inscribed. Miss Stelzriede was highly complimented on her school spirit by the Coach and other members of the faculty, and she also has the best wishes of the sport staff of the Samojac. The donation of this cup by Miss Stelzriede practically eliminates her from the tournament. The spirit is lacking by the possibility that she may win the cup, because Helen swings a mean racquet. When we are reincarnated we wish to be a flapper with plenty of "IT." Some people are born "to be"—others Just live and die.
Golf Team Plays Under Handicaps [Newspaper Article] — Corsair — 10 June 1930
Golf Team Plays Under Handicaps In summing up the golf season in Santa Monica Junior College it is necessary to consider several things that made this sport hard to carry on in the college. First, not enough experienced men were available for the sport, and second, the inability of the team to get sufficient practice. In the last instance, however, the team has triumphed by not using valuable school time for athletics and have combined golf with higher scholastic standing. The Corsair team was made up of five men: William Henn, Dryden Bergeron, Vincent Donatelli, Weir Grace and Sanford Watkins. As in every other sport, a team must have practice. This the squad did not have. On Monday afternoons, after all classes were over, the team was able to play a few holes and on Saturdays played in matches. This much practice was entirely insufficient. When these handicaps are taken into consideration, the team did very well in its initial year. Winning one match on points, winning two by forf...
