Although the staff has as yet not been announced, it is assured that the complete staff has been selected, and will consist of those people who have had experience on the Samojac. The staff will be announced in one of the next issues of the paper. Arthur Redden will have the position of editor, and the annual will be issued just a few weeks before the first graduation. It will have the complete history of the Junior College since its inception, and will probably be the best annual to be issued, as it will combine two years with one edition.

Student Body Meets In H. S. Auditorium Tuesday morning, at the first Junior College assembly, Mr. W. F. Barnum congratulated the students and faculty on the fine opening of the school, and extended a welcome to them for the current year.

Few Rules for Students [Newspaper Article] — Corsair — 4 September 1930
Few Rules for Students Students entering Santa Monica Junior College are requested to acquaint themselves with the few rules governing student actions. It has been, and will be, the aim of the administration to have as few rules as possible. Students must remember that from now on they will be considered college students, and no longer need the supervision that was necessary during high school days. There are graduates from many different high schools, and it will probably be some time before they can correlate themselves with the rules here. The chief ones are: talking in the library is not permitted, except in the conference room; Junior College students attending high school assemblies must sit in the back of the balcony; smoking on the campus is prohibited by state law; parking of automobiles is not permitted in the circle in front of the school; J. C. students must not interfere with the high school classes at any time. These few rules, if obeyed, will make it must easier for a...
Back Up The Team [Newspaper Article] — Corsair — 4 September 1930
Back Up The Team What we need now, with all these football games coming up, are new songs and yells. When we get out there on those bleachers to back up our team, we need something with which to do it. If we can get some good yells with a lot of pep to them, we can get behind the team with some real support. These yells and songs would go over big if we would all yell the same thing at the same time. In the past, the decided lack of unison has been quite noticeable. With a good yell leader, some good yells and songs, and some real pep, we should put over the oncoming games with real spirit. So get started on some good ideas and think up some real material. Anything in the line of yells and songs will be accepted. We need a lot of good ones to make this year a big success.

Community Players Offer Popular Play [Newspaper Article] — Corsair — 4 September 1930
Community Players Offer Popular Play Playgoers of Southern California are being offered a rare treat at the Pasadena Community Playhouse this week where Oscar Wilde's "Importance of Being Earnest" is completing a two-weeks' run Saturday. Sharley Simpson and Charles Levison are taking the leads in this "trivial comedy for serious people," which sparkles with the characteristic witty and epigrammatic sayings that have made the author's works favorites since their first performances in the 'Decadent Nineties." "Dr. Knock," a fantastic comedy by Jules Romains, is the next Community play, and is scheduled to run from September 11 to September 20. This drama will be directed by Morris Ankrum, the new Associate Director at the Playhouse. Following this play the house will be dark until October 2, when Martin Flavin's premiere, "Dancing Days," opens the fall season.
Psychology Tests Given to Students [Newspaper Article] — Corsair — 4 September 1930
Psychology Tests Given to Students At the beginning of each college year, those students who have not taken the psychology form tests will be obliged to take the exam. The students who have just entered the college for the first time will of course come under this heading. The examination is a duplicate of that given at most of the leading universities for the new students. The score of each student is kept on his record, and a check is thus made to see of the student is doing work of the same capacity as his I. Q. calls for.
New Print Apparatus [Newspaper Article] — Corsair — 4 September 1930
New Print Apparatus The high school print shop, where the Samohi and the Samojac are printed, was the recipient of new equipment this summer. A new press, equipped with an automatic feeding attachment, and costing around 31900, removes the necessity of feeding in sheets of paper by hand. While this press will not print a sheet as large as the Samohi or Samojac, it disposes of much routine matter, thus enabling the printers to put more time and effort on the school papers. It was made in Pittsburg and is powered by a one-horsepower Northwestern motor. The second addition consists of an automatic attachment added to the paperculter, which obviates the old method of hand-cutting. This power attachment costs in the neighborhood of $2OO.

All Tickets Good At Hi School Games The Student Body tickets issued to the Junior College students will admit them to all home games of the high school.
