This 1931 issue presents, first, a record of the year now completed, and second, on the di-
vision pages what we are most proud of-the buildings on the new campus, some completed,
some under construction, and some still in the planning process.
Throughout the history of the college, men have been striving to achieve the goal of enabling
the matriculation of Santa Monica City College students on a new campus. ln the fall of 1950,
an untiring school board saw the attainment of its goal when the people of Santa Monica
passed the decisive school bond issue, assuring immediate construction of the new buildings. The
members of this hardworking board are: Mrs. Ernest Blenkhorn, president, Mr. Jacob Rubel,
Mrs. ,lean Leslie Cornett, Dr. Cyril J. Gail, Mr. Harry T. Williarris, Mr. Richard K. Candy
and Mr. :Xrthur Erickson, with Dr. Vtfilliam S. Briscoe as superintendent.
Prior to this, Mr. Emil O. Toews was largely responsible for the improvement of the new
grounds which were purchased in 1940 through the tireless efforts of an earlier school board.
This board was headed by Mr. Harry W. Strangman, and members consisted of Mr. Ellet E.
Harding, Mrs. ll. W. Wictum, Mr. George C. Bundy, and Dr. Cyril ,l. Cail, with Mr. Percy R.
Davis, then superintendent of schools.
The early planning of Dr. Ralph ll. Bush, director of the college from 1929 to 1938, was
brought to a successful fruition largely under the competent guidance of his successor to the
directorship, and later president, Dr. Elmer C. Sandmeyer.
Now, as we the students and faculty of Santa Monica City College look forward to life on
our new campus, we offer as an indication of our gratitude to the planners, founders, and the
builders, the dedication of this, the 1951 edition of the SPlNDRlFT.
With their hands of guidance active in every matter of school importance. we
see pictured here the Hliig Fourw of our College. Dr. Elmer Sandmeyer, President of
Santa Monica City College, and his ahle assistants discuss plans for the new campus.

The Psychology Club has been one of the most active on the campus this semester. Besides showing psy-
chology movies for the benefit of the entire student body, the club was fortunate to hear a great number of
guest speakers during its evening meetings. Among the speakers were Mr. Roger Weldon from the UCLA Psy-
chology Department and Dr. George Back, a clinical psychologist. Under the leadership of Mr. Glen C. Martin,
many field trips were taken. Pacific Colony Hospital, Camarillo Mental Hospital, Juvenile Hall and the Psy-
chology Clinic at UCLA were among the sights seen by members of the Psychology Club.
The Pre-Med Club exists
for students whose interest
lies in the field of medicine.
Under the direction of Mr.
George Pride and Mr. Max
Silvernale, the club has
progressed each year. Last
semester, members witnessed
hlms on medicine. including
lab techniques and surgery.
They took a trip to the
Kabat-Kaiser lnstitute. An-
other journey took them to
the City Pathological Lab-
oratory in Santa Monica. A

J. Kenner Agnew. brought to public attention this last
These splendid results were accomplished by this
agency through different means-posters, brochures,
press releases. radio broadcasts. bumper cards.
A further advance has been the work of liosemary
Cicco. Commissioner of Publicity, who has accomplished
a higher degree of coordination.
Through the excellent work done on the school's press
releases and brochures. neighboring colleges have been
able to receive correct and current information as to
campus news and athletic events.
To mention all of those who assisted in the task of
running the Publicity Staff is impossibleg besides the
natural modesty of all good journalists would prevent
the staff from telling of the many problems met.
All in all, the results of these changes were beneficial
to the school. which now is truly in the public eye.
Headed by Rosemary Cicco Cabovej in
both the fall and spring semesters, the
hardworking group served as backbone
to many student activities.
With J. Kenner Agnew as adviser for the
staff, many of the local schools have been
notified of events through press releases.

many factors might prevent the normal progress of

of building materials and manpower.

Bill "Iron Man" Hansard, perennial high scorer for Carl Merrittis small but powerful aggregation, is
shown skimming over the high barriers. The high hurdles, low hurdles, and pole vault .were the events
in which Hansard picked up most of his points. In the conference meet he won the high hurdles and
took second in the lows and pole vault.
Right, here's the "iron man"
again, only this time winning
the 100-yd. dash, a race in
which he seldom participated.
In this meet, a triangular one
with San Diego and Harbor,

sard won the 100-yd. dash,

BASEBALL . . .
The much scoffed-at 'fold college tryu did much to
contribute to the winning season which the baseball
team enjoyed. The fl win-"1 loss record which the
team chalked up during the Metro Conference season
put it in a tie for second place with Et Camino. This
second place tie. however. came in only one-half
game behind the Long Beach champions.
The leading hitter of the Corsair team was Dick
Miller. with a .351 average. Larry French closely
followed this with 1541. Then came llill Geiger. who
played in half the games. with 333. and Captain
Walter Polk with an average of 327. hflustlingi'

less Chalfant, Dan Mateik and Bernie Weiss fol-

Dick Miller also led the team in pitching as he
compiled a 5-2 record. Captain Walter Polk ended
the season with a 2-l conference mark. while Larry
French won l and lost 0. Carlton Counts started off
the season hy beating El Camino with a hnc pitching
jobg he wound up with a l-l record.
At the outset there appeared to belittle hope for
the ,Sl edition of SMCC horsehiders. The first two
practice games of the season against Loyola ended in
a complete rout of the Orange and Grey aggregation.
This soon changed.
The first game of the conference season set the
pattern for what was to follow. El Camino came to
Corsair field. dangerously overconfident. The hrst
few innings of the game added to their belief that
they had the well-known ncinchf, It was at that time that
the Corsair team exploded in a flurry of runs to put
them in the lead. a lead which they never relinquished.
This game established the regular infield and outfield.

while Ed Feldmann played inspiring hall at the initial

Later. French moved to right. as Polk took over in
left field. Marty Baer settled down to steady work
behind the plate and stayed there the entire season.
