Friendly Feeling Felicitates Frosh [Newspaper Article] — Corsair — 11 September 1930
Friendly Feeling Felicitates Frosh "The fifst thing I noticed upon entering Santa Monica Junior College, was the spirit of friendliness prevailing among the college upperclassmen. Everyone seemed so anxious to lend a helping hand, and there seemed to be a gratifying warmth radiating everywhere," said a frosh. The beauty of the campus and buildings immediately captured this pea-greener's undying admiration. There is no doubt but what the marvelous environment which the Corsairs are privileged to enjoy has much to do with the high degree of scholarship for which the college is alreadv famous.

"Dr. Knock" Opens at Pasadena Playhouse "Doctor Knock'* by Jules Romains will open at the Pasadena Playhouse today under the auspices of the Pasadena Community Playhouse Association.

FOOTBALL PRACTICE BEGINS Twenty-two Report For Jaysee Football A squad of twenty-two Candidates for varsity football reported for practice at the last workout held Monday afternoon. Several new faces were seen, and a host of old ones. Among the newcomers were George Arnold from Los Angeles High School, and Charles Moore. Nester Enrico of S. M. H. S. fame reported for the first time Monday, and may be used at the spin position. Coach Mishler is handicapped with a lack of second-string material, and consequently good scrimmages will be rare. However, with such potential material as Hurst, Wagner, Enrico, Hickman, Delp, Stevenson, Hogston, Thelan and Rankin as a nucleus, a fast and shifty team should be forthcoming. Several practice games are expected to be scheduled soon. Next week's Samojac will carry details concerning the first game.
Grid Team Learns Fundamentals [Newspaper Article] — Corsair — 11 September 1930
Grid Team Learns Fundamentals Fundamentals and more fundamentals. That is the program on tap for Coach Mishler's grid hopefuls in their first two weeks of practice. A team schooled in blocking and tackling and other fundamentals is dangerous regardless of what other knowledge of the game it may have. Mishler is an advocate of a thorough knowledge of fundamentals, and believes a team can go through a heavy schedule successfully with only a few simple plays if every man knows fundamentals and knows them well. With this in mind, Coach is devoting most of his time \p drills in fundamentals. Scrimmages will soon be in order, and a rough estimate of how the team will fare in the coming conference race, will be gained.
Women's "Gym" Classes Offer Tap, Natural Dancing [Newspaper Article] — Corsair — 11 September 1930
Women's "Gym" Classes Offer Tap, Natural Dancing Miss Carrol has announced two major changes in her program for the coming semester. The first is that each girl registered for physical education must attend class twice a week. One of these two days will be devoted to formal exercise, the other to rhythmetic work. The nature of this latter work is one which holds much promise, but also one of much indecision. However, Miss Carrol has hinted that the classes may be offered folk dancing, natural dancing, clog or tap dancing, and that she might even give them some aesthetic technique. The second change concerns the honor awarding system of the W. A. A. The point system of last year is passe, because it favored the individual with natural ability and gave the physically undeveloped girl, with little or no skill, no recognition for her honest endeavor. Actual participation in an outside activity, no matter whether the individual makes a team or not, will determine the awards. The new mott...

Jaysee Games to be Played on Hi Field The new Jaysee gym field, which was recently leveled and cleared, will not be further improved until next semester, Coach Mishler revealed today. With the exception of a water pipe now being laid and a little more levelling, the field will remain as it is for the present. Coach Mishler stated that inasmuch as all J. C. games will be played on the high school field, the gym field will be entirely adequate for varsity practice and gym classes. It is anticipated that in the future turf will be planted and the whole area generally improved, but this will not be for some time to come.
Prospects Bright [Newspaper Article] — Corsair — 11 September 1930
Prospects Bright Although basketball season is months away it is well to give a thought now anc then to this sport.

Captain Hickman, Athey, Stevenson, Bergeron, Delp and Thomas are the returning lettermen. What some men say to their wives goes, Yes, it goes all over the neighborhood. The talkies are getting voicer and voicer
Shortage of Lockers Does Not Stop Class [Newspaper Article] — Corsair — 11 September 1930
Shortage of Lockers Does Not Stop Class The men's gym classes are now running full blast, and a full schedule of work has been drawn up by Coach Mishler. Lockers were issued last week, and although there is a shortage of about forty lockers, this deficiency is expected to be remedied soon by the installation of a double row of the latest type steel lockers. A record enrollment is reported. Gray gym uniforms are designated by Coach Mishler as standard equipment, and may be purchased in the bookstore. Coach urges all fellows who can possibly arrange their programs satisfactorily, to come out for football. He stresses the fact that everything possible is being done to secure positions for those who find it necessary to work, but would also like to come out for athletics. It is hoped that an arrangement can be made whereby both athletics and employment can be worked in without conflict. This will be a great help to some likely candidates for varsity berths who face a problem of both wor...
Sport Facts [Newspaper Article] — Corsair — 11 September 1930
Sport Facts Chaffee Junior College of Ontario has a game scheduled for this season with Kamehameha School, in Honoluly Stadium, December 5. Babe Ruth was broke a few years ago. Now he invests his earnings in a trust fund which pays him 312,000 a year and already amounts to 2150,000. The Philadelphis Athletics continue to maintain their lead of six and one-half games over the Washington Senators, and fifteen games over the New York Yankees. They appear to have cinched the American League flag, and there is but a slight mathematical chance that either the Senators or Yanks can overtake them. The Chicago Cubs do not enjoy such a commanding • lead in the National League, barely holding a three-game lead over the battling Saint Louis Cardinals. The end of the season is still a long wayj off, but we look for the Athletics and the Cubs to battle it out for world baseball supremacy in October. Some people who claim to have descended from nobility have made quite a descent. Motto for the use...
TARGET PRACTICE [Newspaper Article] — Corsair — 11 September 1930
TARGET PRACTICE For once in our young lives the Jaysee is getting some publicity in the local papers. It takes a new paper in the field to make things interesting. Of course, football wasn't on the program last semester, -and consequently not enough spirit could be aroused to give the school any write-ups. But "kums it now for the feetsball," and the local sport scribes are giving us a break. There haven't been any of the "dinks" seen as yet. Best the "dink" committee get busy and sell some. The bookstore clerks aren't behind the counter for that purpose. The traditions of this school must be kept up, and, since a "dinky" is a tradition, all you frosh get a tradition on youi head. Most schools specify the clothes to be worn, but here only a little cap is required. Get the cap while the getting's good. Judging from newspaper gossip, a lot is expected from the Corsairs this season. To expect a championship the first year is putting it a bit strongly, but with such determination as has...
