1955 KSU Yearbook Receives Praise The 1955 yearbook, the Chestnut Burr, has received praise from many people as perhaps the best that has ever been produced at KSU. The book has been entered in national competition. Typical of the high praise is that from Loris Troyer, editor of the Kent Courier-Tribune who said in a recent column: "The 1955 Chestnut Burr, Kent State University’s yearbook, is the finest we’ve ever seen produced on the hilltop. "A 304-page volume containing bright copy and exceptional pictures and artwork, the Burr is titled, "This Is Kent.” Through the medium of Dean of Men Emeritus Ray Manchester’s "Saturday Letters” and special copy the philosophical dean furnished the editors, the Burr brings its readers a graphic description of the university’s growth. "Even the Captain Brady leap legend gets prominent play in the Burr’s opening pages. One photo shows the spot where the famed pioneer leaped over the Cuyahoga and another, the lily pads and reeds where he hid at B...
Grades Stop Two Gridders [Newspaper Article] — Kent State University Summer News — 21 June 1955
Grades Stop Two Gridders KSU’s hopes for a Mid-American Conference football championship received a severe jolt today as two topnotch linemen were declared ineligible because of poor scholastic standing. The two are Geno Monastra, left guard from Mansfield, and Jim Murphy, right tackle from Dover. Monastra, 194-lb. senior, was named on the Associated Press all-con-ference team last fall and was a twoyear letterman. He was slated for first-string duty again next fall. Murphy, 240-lb. giant who Coach Trevor Rees describes as "all football player”, was the best-looking prospect on Kent’s freshman team last fall. Rees was counting heavily on him for this year’s varsity. "This will be a tremendous loss in our line,” Rees commented. "They were among the roughest players on the team, and will be tough to replace.” He plans to move Ernie Costello, from Youngstown South, from right guard over to left guard to replace Monastra. Bill McClain, Amsterdam, and Major Harris, Cleveland East Tech, w...

Rees Sees Two Early Sell-Outs For Grid Tilts [Newspaper Article] — Kent State University Summer News — 21 June 1955
Rees Sees Two Early Sell-Outs For Grid Tilts It is three months until the start ol the football season, but Kent State University already is virtually assured of two sell-out crowds, according to Athletic Director Trevor J. Rees. Rees says pre-season ticket sales indicate "sure sellouts” for the Oct. 22 Homecoming game with Marshall College and the Oct. 29 Dad’s Day tussle with Miami University. There is unusual interest in the Miami tilt, he pointed out, because both teams are regarded as top contenders for the Mid-American conference championship. "Never before have we been able to look forward to sellouts this early," Rees said. "We’re playing the toughest schedule in northeastern Ohio next fall, and it’s gratifying to see the fans responding the way they are.”
