Organized Rooting [Newspaper Article] — Corsair — 8 October 1930
Organized Rooting Football season is advancing; the long gruelling weeks of practice have culminated in competitive play on the gridiron. Then come more weeks of practice, and more games, too. The men on the practice field are working with slavish enthusiasm to bring victory home to Santa Monica Junior College this year —its initial venture in football. A great deal of the success of future years depends upon the team's showing this season. Coach Floyd E. Mishler ijjfcgiving freely from his vast experience, and putting his time in with unabated desire to develop a creditable team. The boys are working hard. There we have two important elements of success. The third is also essential. It is undeniable that men can reach greater heights when they are surrounded by encouraging friends. It is the duty of the student body to turn out en masse and cheer. But it is not a haphazard, wildly-shrieking mass that constitutes this third element; truly enough, at the proper time it has its merit....
On Finding an Honest Man [Newspaper Article] — Corsair — 8 October 1930
On Finding an Honest Man Diogenes, a Greek philosopher living from the year 412 to 323 B. C., is known as one of the world's greatest cynics, having given up all his worldly belongings except a cloak, a purse and a wooden bowl. One day, however, Diogenes saw a boy drink from the hollow of his hand, whereupon he immediately threw away his bowl. This incident might be applied to some people today; not that I would advise them to give up their own belongings, but at least those of other people. Perhaps it would be worth while and most delightful and unusual experience to become cynical for, say, about a week. Ah, what treasures might be found. Now we might even go a step further and provide ourselves with little lanterns. But why little lanterns? you may ask. Well, list a while as I continue my story. One day Diogenes, the aforementioned philosopher, was seen walking through the streets of Athens with a lantern in broad daylight. On being asked what he was looking for, he replied, "I a...

CAMPUS COMMENT [Newspaper Article] — Corsair — 8 October 1930
CAMPUS COMMENT It's a wonder that when Mishler's minions get on the field to play, they aren't discouraged by the size of the gridiron. After practicing all week on the peewee field, running up and down hill, they have a mental aspect far from satisfactory when faced by the full-length field. The College expects a winning team, and yet they won't get behind and support. At the Compton game there was a large, unorganized crowd; but at last Saturday's game there was a large area of empty bleachers. The team won't fall down on the job, but the students behind the team seem to be doing just that. They are so far behind that they will find out last week's score some time around Christmas. Clubs are the center of all college activities. There is room for more on the Corsair campus, and it is up to someone to start them. A French organization is one of the badly needed clubs, and many others in various departments would be welcome. In order to have a successful yearbook it is necessary tha...
SOCIETY [Newspaper Article] — Corsair — 8 October 1930
SOCIETY Ed Villarreal ornamented a dance last Thursday night, given in Los Angeles. Regina Bender traveled far and away to Lancaster, Sunday, to visit her sister who is teaching school there. Myrtle Fletcher was busily engaged in the last week-end, with the Scotch art of selling tlje holes in holeless doughnuts. Roxine Waltz found that she couldn't resist the urge to try out her new little bow and arrow she just bought, so she and her family decided to do a Robin Hood stunt and beat it up to the High Sierras and hunt wild beasts —namely, deer. Roxine reports that she had a perfectly killing time, but she -used her bow for a cane mostly. Last week Helen Stelzriede was driving along peacably on Main Street at a low rate of speed when an intoxicated driver suddenly appeared from nowhere in particular and side-swiped her —the car, rather. A smashed fender and front hub cap were- found to be the only known damage among the wreckage. The man is still wandering around at large, and Helen •...
Jaysee Songsters Contribute Many College Hymns [Newspaper Article] — Corsair — 8 October 1930
Jaysee Songsters Contribute Many College Hymns Various members of the Men's and Women's Glee Clubs have answered the clarion call which the student body has so loudly raised for college songs. The result has been a production of songs and hymns praising the Alma Mater, some of which are printed herewith. According to Mrs. Williams, faculty sponsor for the two organizations, these are the result of the clubs' first project. Rather quick work for clubs that have only been in existence a few weeks. Much is evidently to be expected from them in the future. S. M. J. C. HYMN S. M. J. C., we pledge to thee, our Alma Mater, Our loyalty and praises bring. Hall to Thee! We love your flying colors, Majestic cloisters our loyalty we pledge To Thee, J. C. S. M. J. C., we pledge to Thee, our Alma Mater, Our loyalty and praises bring, Hail to Thee! HAIL! ALL HAIL! Hail! all hail, S. M. J. C. Santa Monica, Alma Mater hail to Thee, Santa Monica. Love and loyalty we pledge To Thee, our cheerful colle...
