Automobile Census Made at University [Newspaper Article] — Corsair — 15 October 1929
Automobile Census Made at University A census of votes on cars gathered at U. C. L. A. last week showed that the majority of our neighboring collegiate brethren prefer the humble Ford. While there was a decided percentage of Lincolns, Cads, Packards, et cetera, our lovely friend from Detroit copped first prize for popularity. There were new Fords and old ones, little, cut-down ones, and oversized ones. There were sport models and junk models, town cars and trucks, but all of them were Fords. Collegiate Fords or those covered with wise cracks were also numerous. Be this as it may, it shows what their preference in cars is. Pennsylvania is said to have 110 different kinds of native trees in its forests. All Europe has but SO varieties of trees.

Newswriting Is Popular At Trojan School [Newspaper Article] — Corsair — 15 October 1929
Newswriting Is Popular At Trojan School Embryo editors are in the making at U. S. C. in even greater numbers, and interest in newspaper training in colleges is aviating. According to Professor Roy L. French, chairman of the department of journalism of the University of Southern California, the number of students making newspaper writing and management their professional study this year at S. C. shows an increase of 56 percent over last fall, while students enrolled in journalism courses for cultural and other reasons have increased 30 percent. In 1928 there were 115 Trojan students in the journalism classes, while in 1929 there are 150. Of these 45 are co-eds. "The increase in journalism majors is reported notwithstanding the fact that students showing no special aptitude for the field are discouraged from entering or continuing in this line of study," states Professor French.
Removal of Lockers Produces Mix-ups [Newspaper Article] — Corsair — 15 October 1929
Removal of Lockers Produces Mix-ups Good news for most of us has arrived in the announcement that the J. C. lockers have been moved to what is claimed to be their last resting place. During the past few weeks many of our noted studes rushed orth from class only to find their lockers missing from their accustomed positions. Sometimes said lockers were entirely missing. It even got to the stage where bets were being placed as to what position the lockers would occupy next. Much humor was added by the fact that the tallest fellow invariably got the locker next the floor, and the shortest boy the lockers next the ceiling. Many felt -that Miss Miller should have given out lockers by size rather than by the order of appearance. However, ''the worst is yet to come." It was announced that, due to the fact that the lockers number are duplicated to lockers in use around the library, each number will have to be changed. Thus, might any of £he students go to class with a locker numbered, say, 7...
What Other Junior Colleges Are Doing [Newspaper Article] — Corsair — 15 October 1929
What Other Junior Colleges Are Doing Long Beach has an award system for activities not recognizable for athletic letters. Brawley has an annual tradition of a reception for the freshmen, given by the sophomores. Compton has several new buildings, and also a public address system used at auditorium calls and games. Many interesting new developments are in force at other junior colleges. Chief among these are the following: Pomona has introduced surveying, German, aviation and journalism as regular courses in their curriculum. Glendale has a very good aviation course. They have a bomber completely equipped for landing on either water or land. Every student at Fullerton is taking more than twelve units of work. There are, incidentally, more men than women at Fullerton. In the Ventura system all the schools are under one administration. The grammar, junior high, high school, and junior college all come under this one head. Long Beach J. C. has a pre-legal course that is associated with ...

Special! Wanted! Meri To Try Out For Yell Leader [Newspaper Article] — Corsair — 29 October 1929
Special! Wanted! Meri To Try Out For Yell Leader The spirit of a school is personified in its yell leaders. Santa Monica needs yell leaders to develop that spirit. A school cannot have organized cheering without a leader. Everyone has heard the slogan, "It pays to advertise," and that is exactly what yell leaders do. They advertise the school and the school is paid in return. Don't wait until the next football season starts to think about spirit and cheering. Start now. Santa Monica can aid its fellow-students of the high school by having organized junior college cheering at the Hi games. If there are any for this type of work, let's hear about it. No matter whether or not you are man or woman, show that you have the right attitude and spirit to help the rest of your fellow-stu-dents "carry on" the good name of our junior college. All persons interested, report to Stanley Fish as soon as possible; the more, the merrier.

Seal Designs Wanted [Newspaper Article] — Corsair — 29 October 1929
Seal Designs Wanted An appeal is being made to the student body by the Cabinet in the shape of asking for designs to be officially accepted as the College seal. Due to the short time allowed the committee on elections, it was not thought advisable at that time to bring up the matter of a seal. Now, with the school on a substantially organized basis, the need for a seal is evident. All suggestions will be received by the Cabinet, and it is hoped that many designs will be sent in. Leave drawings in an envelope addressed to the SaMoJaC, care of Miss Miller. The winning seal will be printed in an early edition of this paper.
Women's Club Hears Dr. Bush [Newspaper Article] — Corsair — 29 October 1929
Women's Club Hears Dr. Bush "Five Factors in the Teaching of Ideals," a lecture given yesterday by Dr. Bush before the Literary Section of the Bay Cities Women's Club, was received with great interest. His first point, "creating the desire for ideals in the mind of the child," made evident the necessity for proper guidance. Diagnosing the situations found in the minds of children proves itself of great importance. In so many cases, lack of self confidence is the keynote of personal deficiency. The duty of the teacher is to find the cause for such lack and correct it if possible. A plan of action, states Dr. Bush, is paramount in clinching to one's daily life the ideals of honesty, industry and service. Practice is necessary in order to become the master of an ideal. The difficulty with tte majority, however, is to count the victory won when the siege has but started. For example, many people are gracious and polite among friends at a social gathering, while in their homes they are f...

Lab Classes Have Most of Equipment College laboratory classes are able now to perform all experiments required of their courses, due to the arrival of most of the laboratory equipment.

Some of the interesting apparatus that will be used in the physics classes are: Westinghouse Air Brake Model, Demonstration Arc Light, Mercury Barometer, Cathode Ray Tube, Dynamos and Motors, a Traveling Microscope, Model of a Gasoline Engine, Gyroscope, Imuplse Balance, and a Centripetal Force Machine. The college chemistry classes which have been hampered due to lack of sinks in the tables, are now equipped with the sinks and are busy in an effort to catch up with the work required in their laboratory course.

Alchemy? [Newspaper Article] — Corsair — 29 October 1929
Alchemy? We firmly believe Don Hecker is either an alchemist, a magician or a master of witchcraft. Monday morning in Mr. Phipps's chemistry class he turned on a water faucet and out spouted a sheet of fire. It later turned out that a mechanic had connected the gas to the water line, but Mr. Hecker is still recovering. The Santa Monica Junior College basketball team will travel to Los Angeles to tangle with the Spartans next Friday night.

Students Should Budget Time [Newspaper Article] — Corsair — 29 October 1929
Students Should Budget Time The examinations recently showed to most of the students the need for systematic study. The inevitable budgeting of time will have to come about —now! Students have found too, that cramming just before an examination is waste of time. The brain can absorb a great deal, but: when it gets tired, it can do no more until it has had time to rest. Studying when the brain is tired is like throwing stones at a brick wall — it hits the outer surface and falls down defeated. How much better the brain would produce results if it were not abused so unmercifully. A systematic time for study would allow the brain to fall into line with the routine thus established. It would know what to expect, as it were, and be ready. If we are to allow our lives to be run by the dictates of our lazy physical beings, then the mental, finer qualities must suffer. The brain would really accomplish a great deal if we'd only give it a chance. So, by using foresight, studying carefully as...
Oh! Examinations [Newspaper Article] — Corsair — 29 October 1929
Oh! Examinations The old adage which says, "If at first you don't succeed, try, try, try again," is just as practical today as when it was first uttered many years ago. To the college freshman, who finds himself entirely at sea amidst new scholastic methods, and who seeg his hopes of success vanquished time and time again through failure in his examinations, this familiar and time-worn adage comes as a great incentive to further and greater efforts. One other grain of comfort may be found in the fact that college examinations, like all other man-made contrivances, are by no means perfect, and that consequently there is plenty of room for improvement in their presentation. Take heart then, dear fellow-students; cultivate within yourselves, as one of our instructors would say, intellectual curiosity. This, with true courage and determination, will ultimately bring your coveted diploma.
Faculty Deserve Credit [Newspaper Article] — Corsair — 29 October 1929
Faculty Deserve Credit There is always a cause for the success of anything that prospers. Nearly always it is hard work, sometimes luck. The cause for the success of the Santa Monica Junior College was and is hard work. When tsudents came to enroll at the first of the year, they found Dr. Bush in his shirt sleeves, plugging away with his pen, and being charmingly polite in the meantime. If you don't think being polite to everyone you meet is hard, trv it some time. All the faculty are co-operating with their leader in spelling success for the junior college: Mr. Coulson with the paper, Coach Osterholt with ethletics, Mr. Wallbank with debating—all are the ardent supporters of S. M. J. C. How do you say "Three cheers'" in German, Mrs. Cejudo?
