PLAN ADDITIONAL STUDENT CLUBS [Newspaper Article] — Corsair — 11 September 1930
PLAN ADDITIONAL STUDENT CLUBS Student Body Sponsor Outlines Plans for the Organization o] Clubs, Groups, and Societies "Certainly student activities have educational possibilities equal to those of class work," declared Mr. E. C. Sandmeyer, student body adviser, in a recent interview. He went on to say, "For it is only through activity that real education can result. Any student, therefore, who does not participate in the activities of the College curtails his educational opportunities. Santa Monica Junior College is a strong believer in student organization and student activities. "How many organizations may we have? As many as may be necessary to meet the wants and needs of the students. Any group of students feeling the need of a new organization will be encouraged in forming it; on the other hand, no artificial stimulation is furnished to keep an organization alive after it has ceased to function. "What is the procedure in forming a new club? The group must secure the approval o...
President Gives Final Messageto Student Body [Newspaper Article] — Corsair — 11 September 1930
President Gives Final Messageto Student Body "Santa Monica Junior College is no longer an infant school. The first, and possibly the hardest year, is over. With the coming of the new year, come new students and new cabinet officers. Last semester it was my privilege and honor to be president of the Associated Student Boby. This semester I am both sorry and glad that I am not filling this office again. Sorry, because I think the student body is a progressive group —a body, willing and capable of doing great things. I would like very much to lead the A. S. B. to the high goals I am sure it will atatin in the near future, both in scholastic and athletic activities. Glad because I know the new President is the man to lead and direct our school, to make successes of the chances which are now but possibilities. He is a man whom we are proud to call 'our Student Body President.' "My final message to the student body as President is: get in, co-gperate, and make this year the best ever. Onl...

Reception Held for New S. M. Faculty [Newspaper Article] — Corsair — 11 September 1930
Reception Held for New S. M. Faculty The Greek Theater was the setting for the reception held last Friday afternoon in honor of the new faculty members. Mr. W. F. Barnum, the host, received the guests and later introduced Dr. George Harding, the President of the Board of Education. Dr. Harding spoke on the importance of the co-operation of the parent with the teacher in re- ! gard to the stu- : dent's school work. Heretofore too much of the responsibility has been vested in the instructors, due to lack of interest on the part of the parent. Following this speech Mr. Theodore Schoenwetter, secretary of the Board, was introduced and gave a brief talk. The purpose of the reception was to acquaint the new and old members of the faculty with one another. Each person wore an identification badge which told his name and the department in which he is working. Refreshments were served to the guests, who also enjoyed a musical program. W. F. fiarnutu

Sincere Appreciation [Newspaper Article] — Corsair — 11 September 1930
Sincere Appreciation The Samojac feels greatly Indebted alike to Frank Michel and to the Santa Monica Outlook. Mr. Michel has repeatedly come to the assistance of the Samojac when the call for special cuts has been made. The most recent work from his pen is the sport cut appearing in this issue; another cut will appear next week for the first time. The Samojac head is also from his pen. The Outlook has kindly lent the pictures of the new faculty members, which appear on the pages of thi» Editor. Charles Patterson, a former debater of the J. C., is now a resident-farmer of Cutler, Calif. He plans to continue his J. C. work in some northern school. "Here's where I get my iron for today," said Mr. Phipps, as he subjected a raisin to electro-chemical decomposition.

Chance To Win Is Negligible [Newspaper Article] — Corsair — 11 September 1930
Chance To Win Is Negligible "The horse that is held up.at the barrier rarely wins the race." This is an old truism of the race tracks. Old as it is, it bares a great message because it applies so well to every walk of life, a'nd especially to student life. Perhaps the jockey was a little slow in urging the horse at the start, and the race began with the horse a length behind, "hung up at the barrier," His chance for a place was slight, his chance for a "win" very negligible. Try as he might, the race is hard, his energy and morale are lost in the effort to catch up. The heart to win may carry him up to and then past the laggards. He may even come up to the leaders, but when they enter the home stretch he has nothing left for the sprint. His place is lost. The race is lost. It was a noble race, but nevertheless a failure. The horse was-held up at the barrier. So it is with people; many students fail for this same reason. They begin their studying too late. They start with a handicap,...
Punctuality [Newspaper Article] — Corsair — 11 September 1930
Punctuality Punctuality is a trait which is most helpful to one who expects to get good grades in college. Being late to class irritates the professor and puts you under a handicap before you are even started. Tardiness suggests an element of slackness which, when allowed to become a habit, undermines character and lowers the ability to do good work. Punctuality is a matter of character and morals. It'is bad enough to waste our own time, but to waste that of others is indeed an evil of no small importance. Try to get the punctuality habit while in college, and it will stay with you and prove to be invaluable upon graduation and entrance into the world of business.
College Yells Needed [Newspaper Article] — Corsair — 11 September 1930
College Yells Needed "A yell from everyone; a song from those who wish;" that is the message the Samojac carries for every J. C. student. It is typical, certainly, of most young institutions to send out a call for songs and yells. It is the duty of each student to respond to the call. Santa Monica Junior College has qualified to rank with other junior colleges, but all last year we traveled the "route" without the unified and drilled vocal encouragement of an established college. Until we have songs and yells, certainly we cannot expect to have an organized rooting section. The moral encouragement due our athletic teams must come via the rooting line. Hand in your songs and your yells, original or otherwise; they may be used, and certainly will help. Recognition will be given for all m'aterial used. Mr. Stromer has introduced the exclusive use of French in speaking to his French 111 class. His purpose being to better acquaint the students with the lpoken language, and to develop a b...

Students Support Polo Several students from Junior College attended the polo game in which the Uplifters defeated the Eleventh Cavalry from Monterey. A separate box was reserved for the party among which were: Fred Tsheppe, Bernard Rogers, Glynn Reineman and Ted Gross. Two heads are better than one, but not if they're on the same pin.
Women Officers to Be Installed Soon [Newspaper Article] — Corsair — 11 September 1930
Women Officers to Be Installed Soon The Associated Women Students are planning to have their installation of officers Tuesday, September 16, third period. All women of the college are members of the Associated Women Students organization, and should attend the assembly. Particularly the new women students invited to attend. The ceremony was postponed from last year to this September in view of the fact that one of the main objects of this organization is to further co-operation and friendship among the women students, and by so doing it is hoped that the new members and officers may become more easily acquainted. The new officers will be: Margaret Johnson, president; Regina Bender, vicepresident; Myrtle Fletcher, secretary; Betty Livingston, treasurer. After the installation the cabinet will Appoint the social welfare and publicity chairman for the year.
Club Presidents Meet [Newspaper Article] — Corsair — 11 September 1930
Club Presidents Meet Thursday, September 4, witnessed an innovation in local club work when a meeting of the various club presidents took place in room eleven. This was the first of what will probably be a series of meetings to develop a better spirit of cooperation among the clubs. One of the first steps was the creating of a clearingoffice, through which dates for meetings and programs will be handled. Dorothy Murray, as commissioner of arts, has been put in charge of it. Those present were: Royal Delp, A. S. B. presidentelect; Margaret Johnson, A. W. S. president; Ruth Hunt. Y. W. C. A. president; Dorothy Murray, commissioner of arts, and Mr. E. C. Sandmeyer, Associated Student Body adviser. If anybody demands an eye for an eye and a tooth for a tooth from Grandpa, he will have to be satisfied with an I. 0. U.
Organized Rooting Needed at Contests [Newspaper Article] — Corsair — 11 September 1930
Organized Rooting Needed at Contests Football season is advancing; soon the long gruelling weeks of practice will culminate in the first game on the gridiron. Then more practice will come, and more games, too. The men on the practice field are working with slavish enthusiasm to bring victory home to Santa Monica Junior College this year —its initial adventure in football. A great deal of the success of future years depends upon the team's showing this season. Coach Floyd E. Mishler is giving freely from his vast experience, and putting his time in with unabated desire to develop a creditable team. The boys are working hard. There we have two important elements of success. The third is also essential. It is undeniable that men can reach greater heights when they are surrounded by encouraging friends. Tt is the duty of the student body to turn out en masse and cheer. But it is not a haphazard, wildly-shrieking rrtass which constitutes this third element; truly enough, at the proper ti...
Women's "Y" Is To Stage Installation [Newspaper Article] — Corsair — 11 September 1930
Women's "Y" Is To Stage Installation The Y. W. C. A. is having the installation of its new officers next Monday evening, September 15, at 7:30. All the women of the college are invited to come to the meeting, where they will be welcomed as new members if they have not attended previously. The Y. W. is planning many things for the future, and this year should be, with the help of the women, a very successful one. At present it is planned that the meetings will be conducted along the group-interest lines. That is, one meeting will be given over to literature of different types, the next will be for "charm and manners," and then each third meeting will be devotfd to the explanation of different types of work carried on by the Y. W. C. A. The installation ceremony is impressive, and all of the girls interested in this work and organization are asked to meet at the Y. W. C. A. house at 1333 Ocean Avenue next Monday evening.
Lockers Delayed [Newspaper Article] — Corsair — 11 September 1930
Lockers Delayed Due to the late installation of the lockers, necessary to accommodate the great influx of new students, the distribu~ tion was delayed until today. Lockers are now ready to be assigned. Keys will cost 25 cents, but the deposit will be refunded on the return of the key. According to the pessimist the roads are being made wider in order to make it harder for the pedestrian to get across, and easier to get a crosj.
