JAYSEE REGISTRATION IS CLOSED [Newspaper Article] — Corsair — 17 September 1930
JAYSEE REGISTRATION IS CLOSED Startling Figures Shown Regarding Student Enrollment At the close of registration, Monday, local college statisticians uncovered some startling figures regarding enrollment here at Jaysee. The most evident fact is the increase in attendance of 155 percent over September of Ust year. At the present time exactly 340 students are in attendance here at College. What is perhaps the most interesting point is the fact that there are men and women here in college who have made direct transfers from universities and colleges all over the country.

Besides this large college representation there are 58 different high schools who can boast that their graduates enrolled at the Corsair institution.

Pres. Royal Delp Calls for Student Support, Cabinet [Newspaper Article] — Corsair — 17 September 1930
Pres. Royal Delp Calls for Student Support, Cabinet "A request has come to me to enumerate the various aims and policies of this year's cabinet. This is a very difficult task, even though much of our work has already been outlined. While there are certain routine duties to be performed by a cabinet,' there are other initiative requisites from the student body that they, as the cabinet, must depend on. Such initiative measures originating in the student body at large, serve to convince everyone of the presence of a vital and necessary spirit. So, in listing the aims of a cabinet, one is forced to say that they are practically all dependent on the interests of the student body. "And that is as it should be. Take, for instance, the *game of football, with its various attendant duties and needs. The cabinet must appropriate funds for necessary equipment, must take charge of home games, provide information as to time and place of outside games, and many other like duties. Therefore the p...

Half The Battle [Newspaper Article] — Corsair — 17 September 1930
Half The Battle "A good beginning is half the battle." To those who faithfully follow this old adage will ultimately come success. It is to the advantage of every student to apply all his time now to getting the fundamentals of his work. The sooner and the harder that this idea is impressed upon the minds of the students, the sooner and better will they master their subjects. Most of us are still young. Now is the time for us to master the ideas of good sportsmanship and honesty. We are all just beginning another year in school. Let's "get those fundamentals."
Is State Education Justifiable? [Newspaper Article] — Corsair — 17 September 1930
Is State Education Justifiable? One of man's most remarkable habits is his eternal resistance to development and all things new: an eternal clinging to old ways and ideals. The reason for this habit is hard to discern. Certainly no one living today would advocate a return to the modes of life known in the dark ages, yet it is certainly implied. It is possible to understand why an uneducated man might be distrustful of new developments —self-preserva-tion would demand it. The educated man is presumably raised above the necessity of relying on instinct for guidance, yet even in this enlightened day we hear men, chosen to represent their universities in print, braying like asses for a return to the old days and old ways, raising to mind a question of whether the State is justified in maintaining institutions.of higher learning. The question is based on the premise implied, that higher education is not for the mass, but only for a select few, putting state universities and junior colleg...
Orientation Necessary [Newspaper Article] — Corsair — 17 September 1930
Orientation Necessary Freshmen, make yourselves at home! Two years are ahead of you, so make Santa Monica Junior College a warm haven for your intellectual, social, and athletic complexes. Orient yourselves as quickly as you are able, to your new surroundings, for, truly, their nature is vastly different from those which you have so recently left. Your success, here, depends upon your readiness to realize the changes. Do not hesitate, or you will be lost. In your class work, social and athletic programs, you will undoubtedly find conflicts. It is your duty to master those dangers. Give to each a sensible amount of time, for college is neither all study, nor all social entertainment, nor athletics; it is a hard-headed, logical mixture of the three that gives the most to the student and develops the best in him. Let your motto be: Work, Fun, Play.
A Reminder [Newspaper Article] — Corsair — 17 September 1930

BEST SELLERS [Newspaper Article] — Corsair — 17 September 1930
BEST SELLERS Beginning with this issue, the Samojac will maintain a column of literary comment on the most outstanding books of the month, their position as "best sellers" being determined by the demand made for them at the Santa Monica Public Library. Reports of books mentioned in each list, if not accompanying the article when first mentioned, will appear in the follow ing issues. FICTION Cimarron, by Edna Ferber. Cimarron is a county, a river, in fact a whole slice of Oklahoma history. In about 1836 it became the name of that no-man's-land which lay between Texas and Oklahoma, the empire of the lawless and the desperate. It was from the Cimarron, men whispered, that Yancey Cravat came before he paused in Wichita to woo Sabra Venable. But his wanderlust would not be stifled by wife and home and the pleasant amenities of civilization. He joined the land rush known as the famous Oklahoma run. "There's never been anything like it since Creation," declared Yancey. "Creation, Hell! Tha...
Geologists To Visit Las Flores Canyon [Newspaper Article] — Corsair — 17 September 1930
Geologists To Visit Las Flores Canyon Leaving on the first scheduled field trip of the forthcoming season, Mr. W. R. B. Osterholt leads his geologically minded students to Las Flores Canyon, Saturday, October 27. A study of the topography of the country will be made, along with an attempt to solve the problems of measuring, dykes, and strikes of outcroppings. Las Flores is expected to be an ideal place for the pursuit of the geologic study. According to Mr. Osterholt the field trips will be during the morning. The expedition will leave early, so as to be able to visit thoroughly the localities in which it intends to do research work, and still allow enough time for an early return to the city. It was planned thus, so students who desire to support the football team will find that the field trips do not conflict with the football games or other athletic contests. Success in this enterprise, personallyintroduced and sponsored by Mr. Osterholt, depends not only on the number who desire...
Faculty Room Reserved [Newspaper Article] — Corsair — 17 September 1930
Faculty Room Reserved Someone has suggested that the sign, "Public Library," be posted on the door of the faculty conference room. Judging by the number of students' books thrown around there, it would appear to be very appropriate. Students are to be reminded that this room is reserved for the exclusive use of the faculty and student publications. Girls are crazy about clothes, of course? but very few are wrapped up in them.
