Prof. Taylor Writes Semicentennial Article [Newspaper Article] — Kent State University Summer News — 19 July 1961
Prof. Taylor Writes Semicentennial Article The July issue of Public Relations News, the monthly publication of the Public Relations Society of America, contains a story on the University's Semicentennial celebration. The anniversary year observance officially opened with the raising of the Semicentennial flag on October 15, 1959, and ended with the ceremonies of the summer commencement exercises last year. Professor William Taylor, head of the Kent State School of Journalism and member of the Semicentennial committee, authored the full-page article. In part Professor Taylor wrote: "Planning for the celebration got underway on February 16, 1956—over three years in advance—when Dr. George A. Bowman, president of the University, appointed a Semicentennial committee. "A University-wide framework including all the colleges, schools, departments and alumni was organized. The mission for each was delegated from the central committee. The committee was handled through special arrangements w...
Dr. Dexter Compiles Data on Birds' Background, Behavior [Newspaper Article] — Kent State University Summer News — 19 July 1961
Dr. Dexter Compiles Data on Birds' Background, Behavior Chaetura pelagica is the lengthy, Latin and scientific name of a sooty-grey, five-inch bird usually known as the chimney swift. Its common name is derived from the bird's habit of nesting in chimneys and air shafts. Since 1944 Dr. Ralph Dexter of the University's biology faculty has been studying the habits of the chimney swift. He has authored seven articles and a half dozen items on these birds for scientific journals. In June of this year Dr. Dexter, a nationally known authority on the chimney swift, was a featured speaker at a meeting of the Wilson Ornithological Society near Huntsville, Ontario. He spoke on a chimney swift that lived three times the normal life span of these birds. Dr. Dexter banded this bird when it was a nestling and recorded its history for 13 years. Unlike some people who keep track of the coming and going of animals, birds, insects, etc., Dr. Dexter never named any of his birds. He commented, "There w...
KSU Defers Admission of "C-" Frosh [Newspaper Article] — Kent State University Summer News — 27 July 1961
KSU Defers Admission of "C-" Frosh Two-hundred and thirty would-be members of the incoming freshmen class for the Autumn quarter will not be attending classes at Kent State University in September. They have been deferred until the Winter quarter, or later. The reasons behind this unique move by University administrators are to recognize scholarship and to make better use of the school's financially limited facilities and faculty according to Dr. Charles E. Atkinson, Kent registrar. He explained, "The 230 boys and girls who have been officially accepted by the University, but not permitted to begin classes until later in the school year are high school graduates who had less than a "C" average in their high school work." This Fall 9,000 full-time students are expected to jam Kent to capacity. This group is double the enrollment of just 10 years ago. And according to Dr. Atkinson, it is only half the size of the student body expected in 14 years. Dr. Atkinson predicts that in 1975 th...
Freshmen Begin Arriving on Campus To Attend Pre-College Conferences [Newspaper Article] — Kent State University Summer News — 27 July 1961
Freshmen Begin Arriving on Campus To Attend Pre-College Conferences The vanguard of some 3,500 new freshmen and 400 transfer students arrived on campus Monday to take part in the first of the 23 two-day sessions in Kent's orientation program for new students. "Now in its third year, the program is designed to help new students find their place in college and help ease the transition from high school to college life," said Dr. Lester G. Brailey, University director of orientation. "At one time, new students were subjected to one week of solid testing and scheduling just before school began in the Fall. This type of program became impractical as the number of students increased," Dr. Brailey added. He explained that now when a new student is accepted by the University he is sent a card inviting him to select one of the precollege conference sessions in the summer. The new student is invited to bring his parents along with him to the summer orientation program so that they will get an ...

Students Say U. S. Prestige Hinges on West Berlin Stand [Newspaper Article] — Kent State University Summer News — 27 July 1961
Students Say U. S. Prestige Hinges on West Berlin Stand The United States' prestige hinges on the country's willingness to draw the line against a take over of West Berlin by the Communist bloc. This is the majority opinion of 12 Kent students who were polled in a random sampling of the campus Friday by the Kent State University Summer News. Each student was asked "If Russia forces a showdown on West Berlin should the United States go to war?" Here are the students' response to this question concerning an issue that some people fear may trigger World War III: Janet Crozier, a graduate student in guidance work from Chesterland . . . "We have to stand behind all the promises we've made and this means a fight. The United States' self respect is at stake." Brian Jones, special student in the College of Education, from Akron . . . "All-out nuclear war would be ridiculous. No one wins that type of war. I would like to see more meetings and a show of military power." Agnes Ross, an element...

An Educator Explains "Extra" Activities Benefit Schools [Newspaper Article] — Kent State University Summer News — 27 July 1961
An Educator Explains "Extra" Activities Benefit Schools (Editor's note: This is the first in a series of articles by Dr. Harold Van Winkle, assistant professor of Journalism at Kent, on public relations for schools. Dr. Van Winkle has had 16-years of experience in handling school and university public relations.) Although public relations is a function of school administrators, everyone in school work can carry on an occasional "extra" activity that will benefit his school and add interest to his work. This was shown in an experiment by an evening class at Kent State University last fall, in which each student designed and conducted a special public relations project in his school as part of the requirements of the course. A school principal in the class devised a questionnaire for his teachers in order to obtain attitudes which would guide him in an evaluation of the public relations program of the school. Another member of the class prepared and administered a questionnaire to det...
