Dr. Ira W. Allen Addresses Student Y. M. C. A. Dinner The first of the Y. M. C. A. luncheons of the present year was held Thursday noon in the Tower Cafe. Thirty-one members of the junior college student body and facylty were present when the meeting was called to order. They formed a very representative group. Dr. Ira W. Allen, ex-president of Allen Academy, Lagrange, Illinois, and pastor of the Brentwood Heights Community Churcy, was the speaker. The address was exceptionally forceful and interesting. , Dr. Allen chose for his subject, "Modern Christianity and Religion," a subject of which he was eminently fitted to speak. He told of the aid that religion had given him in rearing his four sons, particularly during the great war, when two of them were at the front. Dr. Allen stressed the fact that not only had he been-in tight places, but that he had seen the world in many such tight places, and that religion was always of great aid alike to the strong man as to the weak man and th...

Y. W. C. A. To Give Pot-Luck Dinners The Y. W. C. A. met last Monday evening at the "Y" house. There were many new and old students there, and the meeting was very successful in spite of the fact that the installation had to be postponed because Miss Clavell, the adviser, was unable to attend. One of the new plans for the coming year is that the girls are going to have pot-luck dinners every other meeting night. The next meeting, September 29, will be a pot-luck affair, and each girl is to bring a covered dish, fruit, or sandwiches. This plan has been tried at other colleges and has proven very successful. The activities planned for the future began last Sunday when the women took charge of the Vesper hour in the afternoon. Miss Jane Winn was chairman. The cabinet also met Sunday morning to receive instructions for the year regarding the correct procedure of the meetings. All of the women students are reminded again that they are invited to come to the pot-luck on Monday, September ...
Histories Related By Cosmopolites [Newspaper Article] — Corsair — 24 September 1930
Histories Related By Cosmopolites The first meeting of the Cosmopolitan Club opened Wednesday evening, avec eclat. The attendance surpassed al! expectations of the officers of the club. Many were present who had never attended a Cosmopolitan Club meeting before. Not all of these were freshmen. The program was of an informal nature, in order to allow the new members to become acquainted. One of the features of the meeting was the recounting of personal histories, each member contributing. These were most varied and unusual, owing to the remote corners of the earth represented by the members. The latter part of the meeting was devoted to general business. The new officers were elected at the close of the past school year. They are: president, Eric Moore; vice-president, Bernard Rogers; secretary and treasurer, Cecil Murell, and publicity, Alice VVillers. The meeting was held at the home of Mrs. Henrietta Cejudo.

Join Spanish Club [Newspaper Article] — Corsair — 24 September 1930
Join Spanish Club At the meeting of the Spanish Club for the ex period, Thursday, there were such a meager number present that Mrs. Cejudo, the faculty adviser, decided to postpone the meeting until a later date. She plans to limit the membership to students who have had either two years of high school Spanish or one year in college. Due to meetings of other clubs at the same time, the poor attendance may have been due to this reason. Those students interested in acquiring a speaking knowledge of the language should see Mrs. Cejudo as soon as possible. Especially in California is a knowledge of the language useful, and almost essential. To students of commerce a thorough acquaintance with Spanish is necessary. We have to work, hard to become successful, and then twice as hard to remain successful.
COMPTON TARTARS INVADE CORSAIR DOMAIN [Newspaper Article] — Corsair — 24 September 1930
COMPTON TARTARS INVADE CORSAIR DOMAIN Compton Boasts Potential Championship Grid Team y First Test for Corsairs Saturday at 2:15 Coach Mishler will send his varsity football team against the strong Compton Tartars. The game is slated for Samohi field, and a record crowd should be in attendance for the Corsairs' grid debut. The team came through the U. C. L. A. scrimmage without injury, and Coach will be able to put his full strength against Compton Yancey and Canfield are the main threats of the visiting team, and a tough' battle is expected between Enrico and Yancey, as these two played against each other in their school days. Compton boasts a heavy line, and a fast, shifty backfield. Coach "Deacon" Pine of Compton is an advocate of the aerial method of attack, and the outcome of the game may depend upon a pass. S. M. J. C. has also developed quite a passing attack, and a great game should result. Those who have been wanting a chance to see the S. M. J. C. team in action will have ...
TARGET PRACTICE [Newspaper Article] — Corsair — 24 September 1930
TARGET PRACTICE Many things worthy of comment took place at the scrimmage Friday between U. C. L. A. frosh and our Corsair hopefuls. Most in evidence was the need of blankets for the team. The cold weather is beginning to come on and it's no cinch for the subs to sit on the bench and freeze to death. They can't warm the bench unless they are warm themselves. Over at Westwood the wind has an annoying habit of sweeping up the canyon, and some of the fellows almost froze to death before the coach gave them a chance to get into the game.- The Bruins are well-equipped with managers. There seemed to be more managers than candidates for the team. An attempt was made by said army of managers to oust spectators from the scene of action, but this failed dismally, as everyone was a reporter, trainer, manager, or coach, so they said. There seems to be quite an argument going on as to whether high school sweaters should be worn to jaysee. Much is to be said for and against this practice, but it ...

Corsairs Show Well In Frosh.Scrimmage [Newspaper Article] — Corsair — 24 September 1930
Corsairs Show Well In Frosh.Scrimmage In a practice scrimmage held Friday afternoon, the U. C. L. A. frosh downed the Santa Monica Junior College varsity by a margin of three touchdowns. The game was not a regulation one, so no score was kept. However, the orange-and-gray gridders held the Bruin pea-greeners well in check until superior reserve strength finally told, and the frosh were able to push over three touchdowns' via the air route. Most outstanding in the jaysee backfield were Hickman, Hurst, Enrico, Delp and Stevenson. Enrico gained consistently through the heavy Bruin line, and once got away for a thirty-yard romp. The Corsairs completed several nice passes through the medium of Hickman to Frederics. The Jaysee line was greatly outweighed, but showed to an advantage, notwithstanding the fact that on defense they looked pitifully weak. Gil Rankin and Art Valone, two of the lightest men on the squad, showed some excellent work against the bulky Bruin line. As a whole the tea...

However, this is not expected to him out of the game Saturday. The Santa Barbara pea-greeners are reputed to have a classy team, and the Corsairs are in for a hard day's work if they expect to emerge victorious. The Channel City team is composed of former high school stars, the nucleus coming from Santa Barbara High, runner-up to t\f Southern California prep championship last year. Coach Mishler, although pleased with the spirit shown by the team, was dissatisfied with the way his plays functioned against Compton. Poor defense against passes was especially noticeable, and an intensive drill on pass defense is in order this ...

Student Spirit Is Shown at Jaysee Pigskin Assembly Thunderous applause! The indomitable spirit of the Royal Corsairs, guards of His Majesty, King Football, electrifies the air with its intensity. Amid the din of acclamation Captain Hickman emerges and holds the attention of his regiment. Old and young listen while he demands an oath of allegiance to his Supreme Covereign. A wave of admiration and enthusiasm sweeps over the faces of his comrades as he pledges the support of him and his corps of officers on the field of battle. As the cheering dies away, the Prime Minister, Floyd Mishler, directing the affairs of his King (Football) rises in imposing grandeur. Deftly he states the policies and plans which the Corsairs are to follow. Courteously he acknowledges and commends Captain Hickman, and promises his support. Following a suggestion from one of the fatherly old majors of the regiment, E. R. Coulson, the group centers itself directly in front of the throne. Immediately the enterta...
