Use The Samojac [Newspaper Article] — Corsair — 22 October 1930
Use The Samojac Co-operation is a big word with a bigger meaning. And we must have co-operation in Santa Monica Junior College if we wish to succeed. Various organizations with school charters have hopelessly drifted apart. When an entertainment is given or something unusual occurs, the news remains locked within the walls of that club. The most notable co-operative movement among clubs was the reception given to the freshmen. Recently the "Y" Clubs, in conjunction with the J. C. Glee Clubs and Letterman's Club, gave the Junior College a fine assembly. But neither of these movements thought to give an outline of its program to the Samojac. Where else can clubs get wider publicity among the student body. To be a success, an affair must be attended by a large group of students, and it is through the paper that the news is most efficiently carried.

Harding in the summer of 1923, at the time of his trip to Alaska.

This was known to his colleagues, who used their knowledge as a means to further their political aspirations. Mrs. Harding, who was very ambitious for her husband, did not know about this affair; and in order to find out what hold these m...

However, superior reserve strength, coupled with a huge weight advantage, combined to upset the fighting Corsairs in as hard a fought game as has ever been played. Coach Mishler was greatly encouraged by the showing his team made against Chaffey. Greater offensive strength and a real scoring punch were noticeable, and it will take some team to prevent the S. M.
