Class of '65 Invades Campus For Conferences Last week the first of some 3,500 freshmen and 400 transfer students arrived on campus for two days of testing, counseling, sight-seeing and other phases of Kent's pre-college conference program. Some students brought their parents to inspect Kent's facilities.

Here are some pictures of the incoming students who took part in the University's annual pre-college conferences last Thursday and Friday.

Assistant Dean Reports . . . Programs Ease Shortage of Teachers [Newspaper Article] — Kent State University Summer News — 2 August 1961
Assistant Dean Reports . . . Programs Ease Shortage of Teachers A report from the desk of E. E. Holt, State Superintendent of Public Instruction, said that when the public schools open in the fall, Ohio will be short 5,400 teachers. This problem is not new to Ohio, nor to any other state. Children from the population explosion that followed World War II have been jamming the State's schools above capacity for many years. According to Archie Hendricks, an assistant dean in the college of education, various solutions have been tried. One remedy was the stop-gap method of cadet teachers. These teachers were persons who had completed just two years of college. They were granted a teaching certificate with the understanding that they would complete their college education on a parttime basis. Another, and far more satisfactory program for producing enough good teachers to meet the need, Dean Hendricks reports, is the special certification program for preparing college graduates to become...

An Educator Explains . . . Public Relations Vital to Teachers [Newspaper Article] — Kent State University Summer News — 2 August 1961
An Educator Explains . . . Public Relations Vital to Teachers (Editor's note: This article by Dr. Harold Van Winkle concludes the Summer News' two-part series on public relations for school teachers and administrators. The author has had 16-years of experience in the field of school public relations.) There are a million definitions of public relations and most school administrators, openly or privately, consider themselves experts in the field. What this adds up to is that the fine art of human relations is not widely understood—nor successfully practiced in many situations—if one is to believe his observations and the reports he reads. "The chief reason that superintendents of schools get fired is poor public relations," Dr. Richard B. Keenan said in an address at the regional convention of the American Association of School Administrators in Philadelphia last spring. Dr. Keenan, who is executive secretary of the National Commission for the Defense of Democracy Through Education, ...

Lack of Funds Postpones Classroom Construction [Newspaper Article] — Kent State University Summer News — 10 August 1961
Lack of Funds Postpones Classroom Construction The critical shortage of classroom space at Kent State University has been heightened by the failure of the Ohio General Assembly to allocate any money to the school for capital improvements. Emil Berg, University business manager, said today that it now looks as though no construction of classroom buildings can be planned for the next two years. The University had requested a S6-million allocation for capital improvements for the current biennium. House committees trimmed this figure to $1,013,400 and the Senate whittled the lesser figure to $38,400, all reappropriated money. A partisan fight developed in the Senate and the token sum failed to pass. Meanwhile plans to construct a $l.B College of Education Building have been postponed. Comple- tion of this structure would have meant an additional 25 classrooms for the overcrowded University. Now the University is faced with the problem of how to cope with the coming increase of several ...
