Assembly on Marriage [Newspaper Article] — The Kent Stater — 27 September 1939
Assembly on Marriage University men and women are future mothers and fathers of America. How well prepared they are to enter marriage has been discussed many times. Friendly talks and "gab" sessions on the campus often end with love and marriage. Likewise, interest is high in family courses and those dealing with the philosophy of living. This indicates that students are interested in marriage and the problems it may present. But, just how interested are they? Kent students can hear Will Durant, noted lecturer, philosopher and historian, at a future assembly if there is sufficient interest shown. In the spring of 1936, Dr. Will Durant was requested by the cadets of the United States Military academy at West Point to deliver his famous lecture on marriage. This was received so enthusiastically by them, that in the fall of 1939, he was again asked to repeat his lecture. The cadets realized that upon graduation many of them would find such a lecture useful. Too often, young people ente...
Letters to Editor [Newspaper Article] — The Kent Stater — 27 September 1939
Letters to Editor Dear Editor: &lt;5 We students feel that something should be done about the exhorbitant prices we pay for our text books. This cry comes not only from our campus but is heard from campuses all over the United States. Whether you are a student from Harvard university or Kent State the strain on the pocket book is still the same. The blame cannot be put on any one source, but is caused by a combination of a group of factors. Why do we students have to buy new editions of books, paying large prices, only to use the books for a few assignments throughout the term? We students are not blaming our professors. They are not ogres trying to take more money from us. Our professors and heads of departments also know the value of a dollar. The fault is in the combination of the higher educational systems. The National Association of Universities requires that text books be bought for class use. Although these books must be purchased, many professors, feeling that they ...
Inside Out [Newspaper Article] — The Kent Stater — 27 September 1939
Inside Out By Stew Fern BEEF VS. BOAST Exhibit A (from the files of Campus conversation). "Gee, did that dance smell! The orchestra was lousy." "Steer clear of that dining hall. Phooie!" "I would have made a grade if old Bones spent more time teaching and less re-hashing his world travels." "You had a chance to go to Siwash and then came to Kent? (Amazement) What in the world did you come here for?" "Yeah, Kent's O. K., but of course it doesn't rate scholastically with dear old Philabuster." * * * Exhibit B (from the files of the Museum of Rareties) "This campus is as beautiful as any I've seen. Have you noticed the number of Chestnut trees? They're getting very rare." "Lovely women? Boy, this campus has 'em." '"There's such a swell spirit of cooperation and friendliness here." "I have Popkins, too; he's a whiz at engineering math." "I registered in a half-hour. Pretty slick system." * * * Obvious would be the answer to the question: which of the above paragraphs represents a crosss...

Some Say [Newspaper Article] — The Kent Stater — 27 September 1939
Some Say By Nat Floersheimer Wanna cup of tea? Seven groups of freshmen women who are interested in joining a sorority, had seven cups of tea at seven different houses in the space of three hours, last Sunday. This year sororities have adopted a new system of rushing, called the preferential bidding system, whereby girls are rushed and hooked and landed in a space of two weeks. It all started Sunday with a series of teas called a Round Robin. Girls who were supposedly interested only in becoming members of a Greek organization as well as those who tagged along to get a good view of what a sorority house looks like when it's neat, went to a succession of hcruses operated by the various sororities on this campus. But they paid for it, for all had to drink seven cups of tea, punch or hot chocolate. They not only had to drink it, but they had to do a juggling act at the same time. And believe me, it's a little hard to hold on to a tray made lop-sided because you've got a cup full of liq...

Men's Union Plans Senior Luncheons And Hiking Club A chance for senior men to get acquainted over their lunch is being provided by the men's union this year in the form of senior luncheons each Tuesday in the upstairs room of the Robin Hood restaurant. Any and all senior men are invited and they will do their own ordering, the plan being to bring the seniors together so they may become better acquainted. Short programs will be planned at a later date. The first meeting was yesterday. First call for hikers rings out this afternoon when any men or women interested in hiking are to meet in front of the atrium at 4:30.

Young Team Takes Field for Kent Saturday [Newspaper Article] — The Kent Stater — 27 September 1939
Young Team Takes Field for Kent Saturday Starnmen Have Power, Morale, Speed But Records Show Lack of Experience Comes again the time to say something concerning the immediate future of football prospects of the Kent State university Flashes. The newspaper boys have come, looked, and gone away to send forth glowing promises for KSU's 1939 football season. Due to injuries, the coaches are not waving their arms in glee over the prospects of the 1 * season. Sometimes those who work with the boys are too close to the picture to get a clear perspective that sideline observers get. Taking the squad as a whole, it will be a young team; an aggressive team; a team with high morale, but one that will be lacking a good deal in experience. For the first time in years Kent will have the happy combination of speed and weight. Speed in the backfield and weight on the line. But whether or not the inexperience of several first team members, and practically half of the second team members will nullify...
Team Expects Fine Season [Newspaper Article] — The Kent Stater — 27 September 1939
Team Expects Fine Season The smacking sound of leather meeting canvas and vice-versa, acts as a magic charm to many of the undergraduates who line the practice field nightly to get a closer glimpse at what is termed the greatest Golden Flash football team in years. Opinions vary widely. Should Estochin, Heichel or Miller start at the center position? How much has Sidinger to do with the pre-season fight the Flashes have displayed? Will the present speedy backfield respond better to the Starn system than did the heavy lineplunging backfield of last year? They differ immensely when talking of the smaller points, but all agree that Kent will have a better team than last year. The gridders themselves have more confidence in the team this year, than they have ever had. Frankie Estochin, aggressive center, believes this to be the best team since he has enrolled. Ernie Sullivan, great backfield star of last year, likes the looks of the present eleven. Bill Boliantz, Carm Falcone, Bill Jacc...

A total of 95 men answered the initial call, the second largest turnout in the history of KSU. They have been divided into groups because of a lack of uniforms. Lyle Warren, KSU flash of a few years ago, will serve as assistant coach. Pinyoun Stars in Tournament At Washington/ Roy Pinyoun, the boy who caught baseball scout's eyes during the recent National Baseball Federation tournament at Washington, D. C., when he hurled a sixhit ball game one afternoon and then turned around and squelched an opponent's rally the next afternoon by striking out the side. with the sacks jammed, was a former Kent State hurler. Dick Kilbourne, a local lad, has been looking especially good in grid practice. Kilbourne is out for an end position and appears to be the traditional gluefingered lineman. Over half of the men reporting for varsity football ...
