Cage Schedule Announced; Squad Practices Nightly [Newspaper Article] — The Kent Stater — 20 November 1939
Cage Schedule Announced; Squad Practices Nightly Varsity basketball practice is settling down to nightly grinds as 28 candidates, competing for the 15 spots to be filled within a short time, fill the air with basketballs. Coach Rosy Starn is pessimistic, but opinion on the campus is that, with seven lettermen and a host of capable sophomores from which to select his starters, the 23 game schedule won't be tough for the 1939-40 version of the Golden Flashes. Inter-squad drills and scrimmages are commonplace affairs at the practices with constant changing of combinations adding to the battle for individual recognition. The seven lettermen who are returning are Bud Le Chaix, Max Connors, Bill Boliantz, Bert Davidian, Wayne Griffith, Dan Gulgin, and Sheldon Helmick. Griffith was high scorer of last year's outfit. Starn's proteges have a little over two weeks to finish preparation for the invasion of Bluffton on December 8. Starn maintains that all five starting positions are open until ...

BETWEEN the GOAL POSTS [Newspaper Article] — The Kent Stater — 20 November 1939
BETWEEN the GOAL POSTS By George Fleischer Football season is over! That's something to be thankful for next Thursday. Saturday's 40-6 licking from Baldwin-Wallace ended a truly hectic season for the Golden Flashes ... a season which was to have been the best in the history of the school, and one which ended with a mere three wins, four losses and one tie. Three men played exceptionally good football Saturday, and it just wouldn't be cricket to forget about them. Dean Winsper was the spark plug which gave the team the pep they, needed in the last quarter. "If you would build a team around that number 55 you might have something," was the remark of more than one B-W rooter. Number 55 is none other than Jimmy Jones, who was in there fighting every minute he played. Jim Alogdelis is the boy who recovered the fumble which resulted in the lone Kent tally. The last football battle brings the last battle for both you and I with "Between the Goalposts." For you, a battle to read and for me ...

No definite plans were made at the meeting as to how the committee will conduct their investigation hut they are going to have open meetings at which persons will be called upon to testify in support of their reasons for believing elections are crooked. The committee plans to have an open letter ready for publication by next Wednesday. Betty Crampton has been made corresponding secretary.

Teagarden's Band Signs Freshman [Newspaper Article] — The Kent Stater — 22 November 1939
Teagarden's Band Signs Freshman Because of a tip he received from a triend in his home town, Akron, Tommy Justice successfully played an audition for Jack Teagarden and was made second trumpet with his band. Justice, a freshman at Kent State, played second trumpet in the university band and with Gil Crest's orchestra. He withdrew immediately from school Monday after he received an offer to join the band. Teagarden's band recently finished a three day engagement at the Palace theatre and moved to Youngstown where Justice is to open with them at the Paramount theatre. It is believed by friends of Justice that he received his chance when Bobby Hackett, nationally known trumpeteer in Horace Heidt's orchestra, heard him several weeks ago in Akron and knowing that Teagarden was looking for a new man in his brass section, notified him to give Justice an audition while he was in Akron.

THANKS FOR EVERYTHING By Kenny Cole Bradford Decrees Thanksgiving Days Pilgrims Invite Friendly Indians to Attend Ceremonies; Chief Massasoit Brings 90 Braves and Five Deer; Soldiers Perform PLYMOUTH, MASS., 1621.—The cannon on the hill thundered its approval as the first of three Thanksgiving days decreed by Gov.

False Alarms [Newspaper Article] — The Kent Stater — 22 November 1939
False Alarms Last week a false alarm was turned in by one of the fraternity houses on campus. It cost the city of Kent more than $25 to investigate this call. It was meant to be a practical joke, but to those who stop and -think twice about such humor, it is not funny. The Kent fire department has cooperated many times in the past with the Greek organizations in their stunts, and several times with the university. Records show that moire accidents happen on false alarms than on real calls. In the past, the false alarms from sororities and fraternities have been so numerous that the fire department must now call back and determine if there is a fire, or if it is some student having fun. This wastes valuable time and may be costly if there really was a fire. Also, if the fire department goes out on a wild goose chase, and a real fire should break out somewhere else in the city, such a practical joker is hazarding the lives of others. Everyone appreciates a good joke. But, false alarms...
