Organizations Warned; Must Enter Budgets [Newspaper Article] — Corsair — 24 September 1930
Organizations Warned; Must Enter Budgets Student organizations are reminded to have their budgets in by the first Tuesday in October. Budgets for various organizations are being held up until all budgets are in, so as to see what the demands are. Mr. Sandmeyer urges organizations ro turn their budgets in at the earliest possible date. It is to be remembered that these budgets are to be mad£ out in triplicate and itemized. No funds can be obtained except on specifically itemized data. Other items to be taken from miscellaneous fund must be voted on individually by the A. S. B. cabinet. Additional funds will not be allowed after a budget is once ok'ed by the cabinet. Stanley Fish, commissioner of finance, has the blank forms, and he is the man to see in regard to this matter. Since the zoology classes started dissecting, the song of the worm seems to be, "My mother never raised me to be a laboratory specimen."

Popular Instructor Sponsors Formation Engineering Club Men students are warned not to become brutal in their efforts to gain attendance into room 14 Tuesday during the X period when the first meeting of Engineering Club will be held under the supervision of W. R. B. Osterholt.

Field trips sponsored by the popular instructor will be a high light of the program. Problems of civil engineering, surveying, and navigation will form the center of discussion at the meetings. When it was first rumored that this club would be organized ten men immediately signified their intentions of being there in force. This rumor started last week, and since that time there is no way of telling what the number in attendance will be Tuesday. At the pre...

Forensic Artists Turn Out En Masse [Newspaper Article] — Corsair — 24 September 1930
Forensic Artists Turn Out En Masse "Words to the right of them, words to the left of them, words in front of them, volley'd and thunder'd." It was the first meeting of the debate squad at 3:35 last Wednesday, to decide upon a trial subject for debate that would demonstrate the ability of those desiring to "trade words" in the forthcoming intercollegiate meet. After much arguing pro and contra, the following proposition was cfrfrsen: "Resolved: that American civilization is materialistic." Some of the other propositions suggested concerned the chain store, our interest in the League of Nations, and other problems of an international nature, but the decision in favor of American materialism came because of its familiarity to all and the fact that here was a subject over which anyone could wax eloquent. Mr. Wallbank was very much pleased with the turnout of more than twenty orators, and expects to mold them into a squad that will work with machine-like precision and that will be skille...

Courses Coordinate [Newspaper Article] — Corsair — 24 September 1930
Courses Coordinate The statement is often made that the present-day college curriculum consists of various subjects which have no relation to each other. One needs to spend only a few hours in the different classrooms to find that there is no truth in this statement. Take, for example, the following course chosen by the writer as a sophomore: zoology, survey of English literature, public speaking, philosophy and gym. During the initial stages in the study of philosophy, definitions of terms were emphasized, and the word "science" was contrasted with the word "philosophy." A day or so later, when the zoology teacher asked for a definition of science, those who were taking philosophy were ready with an answer. Again, we found that philosophy deals to a very great extent.with the origin of life and first causes in general. Upon returning to the zoology class we were told that zoology is very important, inasmuch as it treats of the different views of scientists regarding the origin and ...

Alumnus Builds Boathouse [Newspaper Article] — Corsair — 24 September 1930
Alumnus Builds Boathouse The crew at Sacramenjo Junior College has just been assured of a new and up-to-date boat house for its three sheells. Murle Shreck, a grad of S. J. C., and several of the business men have worked out a plan to secure a lot on the river front, and to erect there adequate housing for the shells and equipment. In itself this has been a great impetus to the interest in this sport.

"Journey's End" Is Discussed By Club [Newspaper Article] — Corsair — 24 September 1930
"Journey's End" Is Discussed By Club Members of the Athenaeum Club discussed their plans for the future, in both dramatic and forensic activities, at the first formal meeting, which was held Thursday during the third period. Mr. Walter T. Wallbank led in a discussion of "Journey's End." This play, wirtten by an English insurance clerk, R. C. Sheriff, portrays the true life of officers who stayed behind the lines and directed the men during their death struggle. The play possesses such dramatic qualities, is so unusual in its lack of a strong, definite plot, and still is so powerful in emotional triumph that it has conquered the world. Each character, it was brought out in the discussion, is a study in himself. The absence of any feminine domination lends the play a clean, vigorous continuity, devoid of the sublety which the presence of a woman necessitates. Mr. Kepner. when he spoke of his own experiences in the front lines during the war, added true reality to the discussion. Due t...
