SOCIETY [Newspaper Article] — Corsair — 15 October 1930
SOCIETY Adele and Jane Winn attended performances of "Hansel and Gretel" and "Cavaliera Rusticana" at the Shrine Auditorium in Los Angeles last Saturday evening. Many members of the Junior College faculty enjoyed talks on China given by Warren Scott, Caroll Lorbeer and Robert Armacost at the High School Assembly last Thursday.

Support the Year Book [Newspaper Article] — Corsair — 15 October 1930
Support the Year Book Although the end of the school year is far off, and the actual presentation of the year book is almost as far in the future, we must of necessity turn our thoughts to that literary work which will bring together and coordinate all the various college activities of the entire year under one cover. Candidates for the year book have been assigned special departments, and material is expected to accumulate swiftly. No name has been accepted yet, and all suggestions will be given consideration. An annual will be given to the student whose title will be used; until then we shall call it the year book. The quality and size of the annual depend not only upon the sum of money spent by the Junior College, but it will rest upon the assistance offered by the student body. Snap-shot days will be announced later, and all "snaps" of interest will be used. Of course the price received for the book from the students has been considered in the outlay for the year book, but so ch...
Have We College Spirit? [Newspaper Article] — Corsair — 15 October 1930
Have We College Spirit? The student body was well represented in its three members who attended the lecture, "An Evening with the Stars," by Mr. B. R. Baumgardt. Fine spirit was exhibited, one must be led to believe, when a nationally famous scholar lectured on the campus to an audience composed of townsmen, a number of high school students, and three collegians. It is a rare occasion to have the privilege of listening to Mr. Baumgardt, especially free of charge. In bringing this famous lecturer to Santa Monica, the employees of the Santa Monica Board of Education performed a meritorious act. It was an act of civic pride. They made possible for Santa Monicans an hour of philosophy, metaphysics and astronomy as given by one of the most noted men engaged in those pursuits. Certainly, as an institution of higher learning, we owed it to the community which subsidizes us, to the generosity of the School Board employees, and to ourselves, to have attended. What finer way to gather knowled...
Multistamp Added To Office Equipment [Newspaper Article] — Corsair — 15 October 1930
Multistamp Added To Office Equipment Yesterday three sizes of the Multistamp arrived at the office of Dr. Bush. The Multistamp is a contrivance -that is used for the same purpose as the mimeograph, but which appears to be easier to operate, and also seems to allow the duplication of a great variety of subjects, such as drawings, examination paper blanks, and many other things. The Multistamp prints on any material, such as cloth of any kind, wood, glass, or any quality of paper. Students are advised to watch out for this new addition to the administration office, as the Multistamp company claims wonders of this machine, such as, "at each turn of the wrist Multistamp puts the teacher at every pupil's elbow."
Zoology Debaters Shine In Frogs' Egg Analysis [Newspaper Article] — Corsair — 15 October 1930
Zoology Debaters Shine In Frogs' Egg Analysis Miss Mainard's zoology II class was the scene of a hot scientific debate, recently. Harry Guida and Max Silvernale joined forces to out-argue the entire class. The disputed subject concerned the evolution of a frog's egg from the first stage through to the tadpole. With vigorous debating to his credit, Mr. Guida finally proved his point. George Drake, leader of the opposition, refused to accept the proof, and subsided unconvinced, even though Miss Mainard substantiated Guida's arguments.
Prof. Interprets Jig [Newspaper Article] — Corsair — 15 October 1930
Prof. Interprets Jig Performing a nifty and animated jig for several of the faculty members after school hours, in the faculty room, Mr. W. R. B. Osterholt, mathematics professor and sponsor of the Engineers' Club, caused his audience to crack a mighty grin of delight. What he was demonstrating so forcefully was not found out, but that it concerned some highly amusing scene is to be inferred. The Sacramento J. C. will soon cast its votes for Queen of the art ball contest. — Pony Express.

Celestial Lecture By B. Baumgardt Delivered Friday Greeting Mr. B. R. Baumgardt, nationally famous lecturer, as he came upon the stage of the Santa Monica High School auditorium, was a large group of representatives frofc the city, the High School and the Junior College. The lecture, Friday evening, October 10, was entitled, "An Evening with the Stars." Along with the lecture, which has drawn many favorable comments from some of the greatest universities and learned societies, were shown various slides of heavenly bodies. One of the best exhibits was the photograph of the moon, which was brought within the tremendously short distance of fifty miles by the powerful Mount Wilson Observatory telescope. With the use of his slides and eloquent, yet simple, explanations, Mr. Baumgardt revealed many of the erstwhile secrets of the galaxy. An unnatural animation pervaded the deep silence of the auditorium, broken only by the rise and fall of the speaker's voice. "An Evening with the Stars" ...

The Play Shop is a true Little Theater, subscribing to all the principles.

Year Book Club Will Undertake Sales Campaign [Newspaper Article] — Corsair — 15 October 1930
Year Book Club Will Undertake Sales Campaign Business concerning the type of annual, its composition and cost, the division of labor, the selling price, and the methods of sales and advertising campaigning were discussed by the members of the Year Book group at its last meeting. The various branches of the annual's mechanism are being put into motion, and an active membership insures a splendid effort on this first publication. Several styles of junior college and university yearbooks were viewed and discussed. Naturally the composition of the annual will depend upon the response of the student body, but the finest materials only will be used in the construction of the book. Suggestions as to the selling price were numerous, but after some time it was almost unanimously agreed that $2.50 would be a fair price within the reach of all students. In discussing the methods of sales campaign, Mr. E. R. Coufson, English instructor and faculty adviser of the year book, outlined a fine plan ...

Novel Excursion For Spanish Club The Cabinet of the newly organized Spanish Club will meet in the near future with Mrs. Cejudo, the faculty adviser, to make tentative plans for the program of the Club. Many delightful .excursions will be planned to missions, Spanish churches, and other places of interest to students of Spanish. One of the first will be to the new International Theater in Los Angeles, where the Club will test out its knowledge of Spanish on a Spanish picture.
