Virginia Cargill Appointed New Debate Manager Frosh debate squads of U. S. C. and U. C. L. A. will find themselves harrassed by the Corsair word-hurlers, if the plans of Mr. Walter Wallbank succeed.

CORSAIRS DEFEAT TEACHERS [Newspaper Article] — Corsair — 8 October 1930
CORSAIRS DEFEAT TEACHERS Santa Barbara Frosh Vanquished 7-0; Fox, Hickman Star in Initial Win Last Saturday saw the Santa Monica Corsairs win a tight game from the Santa Barbara State Teachers College frosh, 7 to 0. After both teams had battled on even terms for three periods, Santa Monica opened up with an aerial attack which saw two beautiful passes completed from Hickman to "Pop" O'Rourke. This put the ball in scoring territory, but Santa Barbara's defense proved strong enough to hold the Corsairs for four downs 011'" the one-yard line. The break finally came when fighting Gil Rankin broke through and recovered a blocked frosh punt. Two line plunges gained ten yards. On the next play Captain Wally Hickman skirted end behind perfect interference for the only touchdown of the game. Enrico kicked goal for the extra point, making the score 7-0. The Teachers came near scoring in the third period when an attempted field goal fell short by about five yards. It was a beautiful kick, and ...
First Conference Game Slated With Chaffee J. C. [Newspaper Article] — Corsair — 8 October 1930
First Conference Game Slated With Chaffee J. C. Santa Monica Junior College will play its first conference game a week from this Saturday, on October 18. The Corsairs have as their first conference opponent Chaffee J. C., and although the Panthers dropped a practice game to Santa Ana J. C. last week, this is no indication of weakness, as Santa Ana was conference champion last year. Several of the varsity are planning to attend Chaffee's game with Compton J. C., scheduled for this Saturday. It is hoped that the team will get an idea of the Panthers' strength from this game.
TARGET PRACTICE " SPORT DJFFIT3 [Newspaper Article] — Corsair — 8 October 1930
TARGET PRACTICE " SPORT DJFFIT3 By FRED SALTER The Corsairs received their first taste of victory, Saturday, when they defeated Santa Barbara State Teachers Frosh 7-0. It made the gang feel pretty good to be on the long end of the score, and will give them a world of confidence which was lacking before. The two teams were very evenly matched, and the issue was in doubt until the Corsairs scored late in the final quarter. Those who stayed away from the game missed a hard-fought and interesting battle between two teams of equal ability. Attendance Saturday was terrible. The small crowd present consisted chiefly of high school students, Junior College faculty, and a smattering of loyal Jaysee supporters. Someone hit the nail on the head when he made the remark that there were more gatemen than customers. All this leads up to the point that the team is not getting the support it deserves. Frank Michel tried to lead a few yells, but this proved to be a dismal flop. What few were present ...
Corsairs Prep For First League Game Saturday Week [Newspaper Article] — Corsair — 8 October 1930
Corsairs Prep For First League Game Saturday Week The Corsairs get a well deserved rest this week, when they draw a bye, no game having been scheduled. Coach Floyd Mishler was greatly encouraged by the showing made Saturday. His plays worked to perfection; and pass defense, the team's weak point, was airtight. Not a single pass was completed against the Jaysee eleven. Mishler is pointing his team for Chaffey, the first conference game a week from Saturday. Several new plays will be given the team, and further work on pass defense will be in order the rest of this week. The Corsair eleven realizes that they are meeting a powerful foe in Chaffey. The Panthers are out for a conference championship this year, and are feared by every team in the league. Remembering the drubbing given them in basketball by Chaffey last year, the Corsairs are out for revenge, and a great game should result when these two rivals get together.

Casaba Turnout Fair; Dulin Outlines Plans [Newspaper Article] — Corsair — 8 October 1930
Casaba Turnout Fair; Dulin Outlines Plans Basketball started off with a bang Monday when Coach Dulin called to arms his basketball aspirants for the 1930-31 season. The turnout was fairly good when one considers the fact that most of the basketball material is busy with football and therefore unable to report. Coach Dulin briefly outlined plans for the coming seaso/i, and explained the work to be done. Practice will consist mostly of fundamental drill with frequent scrimmages. "Equipment plays an important part in the success of a team," stated Mr. Dulin. "Special care should be taken of the feet and ankles," he continued, "as a good basketball player must have good legs." Practice is scheduled for Monday and Wednesday afternoons from 3:45 to 6:00 p. nr:

CAMPUS COMMENT [Newspaper Article] — Corsair — 15 October 1930
CAMPUS COMMENT Football is on the wing for sure now. Last Monday's Blue Monday Jamboree featured that sport in as snappy a broadcast as has been heard for some time. Everything is collegiate now, even the radio. Why do all the fellows show up at school with sweaters, but no shirts. Has it come to the point where Mother refuses to clean her boy's garments, and the fellow has never learned to wash them himself? Or maybe financial difficulties are responsible. If that is the case, we see where plenty of neighbors had better watch their clothes lines. Now that a name for the annual is practically selected, and a theme decided on, it is announced that sales will start in the near future. The price being asked as down payment is only one dollar —a buck —and this amount can be easily met by practically all the students. With a refund on science fees coming at the end of the year, the rest of the money will be easily obtained. So come on 100 percent, and support the yearbook. And then, too,...
