Chemistry Dept. Adds Equipment [Newspaper Article] — Corsair — 17 September 1930
Chemistry Dept. Adds Equipment Due to the unexpectedly large enrollment in the chemistry classes, the present paraphernalia of the science department has proved inadequate, * and additional scientific apparatus is being purchased in order to meet the demand for equipment. Among the instruments to be added to the chemistry laboratory is a hydrogen sulphide generator, which will soon be ready to cast its odor throughout the science building. In comparison to last year's enrollment, requiring only one. class, the chemistry classes appear the most popular of the science courses, with two Chemistry A and one Chemistry 1 class. Over seventy students are enrolled. If next year's enrollment increases in proportion to this one, the Junior College will undoubtedly have to find new quarters in which to house the influx of students.

CORSAIRS MEET BRUIN FROSH Additional Material Strengthens Corsair Varsity Gridiron Machine With the addition of several new players, the S. M. J. C. varsity is beginning to look like a real football team. Coach Floyd Mishler has been drilling his cohorts in fundamentals, with a snappy scrimmage to top off the practice. A total of thirty-two are now reporting daily, and every one of them seems to have his mind set on a first-string berth. There seems to be plenty of beef and some speed. The backfield is an ideal one to put into' execution Coach Mishler's intricate reverses and spin plays. This system depends a great deal on deception and lots of speed is essential to proper execution. Mishler's backfield seems to have the necessary speed, and, with a heavy forward wall to protect it, the backfield should function to perfection. Friday, Coaclr will take his fighting Corsairs over to Westwood to engage the U. C. L. A. frosh in a practice scrimmage. Coach Mishler asks that the students ...
TARGET PRACTICE [Newspaper Article] — Corsair — 17 September 1930
TARGET PRACTICE It is indeed gratifying to know that Dr. Bush and the faculty are behind the team. The spirit shown by them in the assembly last week was great. Frank Michel seemed to find it difficult to pound the new yell into the freshies' heads, in the assembly. Speaking of yell leaders, we have plenty of that sort of talent in S. M. J. C. Hial King, former yell king of Samohi, is now a member of S. M. J. C. Frank and Hial ought to make a great team \}f yell leaders. Both are popular and "have a way" with the student body. And still no "dinks." In last week's Samojac appeared a hint that "dinks" were required to be worn by the frosh. The results were very discouraging. Let's look at it from another angle. Besides being a requirement, wearing the orange and gray shows good school spirit. Frosh, you should be proud to wear your school's colors. And it's a good way to distinguish yourself from high school students. The fact that the Junior College is in the high sclfbol building ca...

They seem to have taken the lion's share of this year's high school athletic crop. Included in the ranks of the U. C. L. A. freshmen are allconference stars from nearly every league in the State. From Santa Monica comes King Lanham, 1929 captain at Samohi. Lewis Whittier, Burt Monesmith, and Wesley Kasl. These four lads should be heard from, and are looked upon as potential varsity men. The Bruin frosh will play a five-game schedule this year, and include the Stanford freshmen and the Southern California freshmen among their opponents. These two games will be tough ones, and should rival the varsity "big game" of the year. Bill Spaulding is looking to the future, when the present crop of freshmen become varsity material. It is indeed something to look forward to.
