The Philosophy of Clothes [Newspaper Article] — Corsair — 1 October 1930
The Philosophy of Clothes The primitive or rather the infantile appearance of certain members of the S. M. Jaysee student body incites the writer to indulge in philosophical reflections worthy, I would say, of a much better cause. High school sweaters belonging to past ages and worn during present college days indicate either perversion or an innate desire to be childish. We are told in the "Book of Books" that when we become men and women, we must put off childish ways, and i take this to include childish sweaters and similar infantile tokens of bygone days. What a college student should or should not wear is not quite such a hard question to understand and solve as, say for example, the Einstein Theory of Relativity. It should not, therefore, baffle the wit of the average student to select those clothes which are much more in harmony with advanced intellectual proficiency than some of the garments worn by quite a few of the Jaysee students in Santa Monica, at the present time. By ...
Sport Problem Solved [Newspaper Article] — Corsair — 1 October 1930
Sport Problem Solved Ever since the emancipation of* women, the sports world has been over-run with members of the fair sex who were alternately applauded and ridiculed for attempting the sensational. However, this superfluity could be remedied if due praise and importance were given to the type of v activity women should participate in. One of the age-old traditions is that women should be rather dainty creatures, intent upon interpreting the beautiful. It would be of much advantage to women if they reestablished themselves on their pedestal through some more graceful form of recreation. If women could find the same amount of competition and publicity in dancing, which is one of the aesthetic arts, doubtless the football and track fields would be devoid of woman participants.—Y. J.
Show Your Colors [Newspaper Article] — Corsair — 1 October 1930
Show Your Colors "We are proud of our Alma Mater!" is the song of every sticker seen on an automobile. Everywhere we go stickers from high schools, junior colleges, and universities are in conspicuous abundance. On the windshields of automobiles they find their most popular resting place, and there do the most good. Let us buy those little "Corsairs" and show them to the country. Let each car owner carry the banner of the Junior College with him. It is emblematic of his loyalty.—«E. M.
Class Officers Needed [Newspaper Article] — Corsair — 1 October 1930
Class Officers Needed Now that our Junior College boasts of two classes, namely, the freshmen and the sophomores, there seems to be no reason why we cannot distinguish ourselves as such by having class presidents and cabinets. A meeting should be called as soon as possible for classes to decide their respective officers so that various activities could get under way in due time.

LAUGING BOY [Newspaper Article] — Corsair — 1 October 1930
LAUGING BOY By OLIVER LAFARGE "Laughing Boy" is the story of the life and ideals of a young Navajo and his mate, Slim Girl. Riding over the desert, out of the wild north country where white men are little known, comes Laughing Boy, a warrior of the Navajos. At Tse Lane, at a ceremonial dance, he meets Slim Girl, cool, sophisticated, disturbing; and at once they fall in love. They run away together to begin a life at first sublimely happy. The Navajo ceremonial dances, Laughing Boy's work in the fashioning of silver and turquoise bracelets, and his wife's rug weaving, contact with other Indian tribes and with traders form the background of their modern Indian life together. But savagery' and sophistication, the untamed Indian and the white man's influence, create a discord that threatens to wreck their lives. The flight of an arrow, the track of a bullet, recast their world. They are led to a better understanding of each other, and are determined to begin life anew in less familiar s...
Campus Bookstore Carries Full Line Of J. C. Supplies [Newspaper Article] — Corsair — 1 October 1930
Campus Bookstore Carries Full Line Of J. C. Supplies campus bookstore is carrying a full supply of Junior College materials, all texts having finally arrived after much delay in shipping. Mr. Lord deplores the fact that many students have felt the need of buying books elsewhere. Sufficient copies of all texts have been purchased to supply the College needs. This means that a number of books will lie on the shelves until next year, thus tying up money that might be used to advantage in buying other student supplies. Mr. Lord says: "If the clerks are doubtful as to whether the store has certain desired objects, the purchaser should insist that they look, and if they cannot be found, see me about ordering them. If the demand is great enough an order will be placed. At present there are very few second-hand books; but in the near future many more will be available. The bookstore is striving to give the best of service, and the patronage and co-opera-tion of all J. C. students will be ap...

This machine is of the most modern construction and embodies all of the features developed by the company in recent years The Don. If Frank Watson is the son of a detective, we wish he would detect what makes Ted Gross talk so much, how long it took Mr. Wallbank to grow that addition he carries, who swiped my notebook, and at what time and place did Wally ...
Kepner to Take Over Athenaeum Club Dramatics [Newspaper Article] — Corsair — 1 October 1930
Kepner to Take Over Athenaeum Club Dramatics "I would like to have a regular Junior College drama class," Mr. Paul Kepner stated, "for which university credit would be given." Next year, the English professor pointed out, the Junior College will be more capable of handling, such a course than it is at present. "The Junior College will not have a real class play this semester, but a series of one-act plays and a number of pnatomimes will soon be selected for the Athenaeum Club." Mr. Keppner has taken over the dramatic department of the Athenaeum Club, in which he is acting as co-adjutor with Mr. Walter Wallbank, forensic coach. "If the Junior College expresses its desire to see the one-act plays, I shall be glad to have them presented to the student body," he continued. "Perhaps, the pro- gram committee could arrange to have the one-act plays presented during the third period on Thursdays. The auditorium has been assured the Junior College for that hour, and the students are all free...

Pot Luck Dinner Interesting Event at Local Y.W.C.A. [Newspaper Article] — Corsair — 1 October 1930
Pot Luck Dinner Interesting Event at Local Y.W.C.A. A new plan was successfully tried out last Monday evening at the Y. VV. C. A. meeting. The girls began with a pot-luck dinner at 5:30. The idea of having a short devotional period was also begun with singing led by Lucile Williams. After dinner there was a mad dash for the dishpan—believe it or not! —as each girl had to wash her own table service. When the dishes were finished the girls got down to the more-serous business of the meeting, the installation of the officers, which had to be postponed last time due to the fact that the adviser was unable to get there. Betty Livingston had charge of the program. After this the girls voted on their choice of interest groups which will be started next meeting. This plan of interest groups proved very interesting last year, and it is hoped that the plan will work out as well this semester.
