Foreign Language Enrollment Doubles in Four-Year Period [Newspaper Article] — Kent State University Summer News — 10 August 1961
Foreign Language Enrollment Doubles in Four-Year Period Enrollment in foreign languages at KSU has more than doubled in the last four years and will continue to increase substantially, according to Dr. A. E. Schroeder, chairman of the Foreign Languages Department. Dr. Schroeder attributes higher language enrollments to "an awakened national interest in foreign language study and to the growing concern shown by school officials and parents." Figures show current registrations in languages here 115-per-cent higher than in 1958. This compares with the all-University enrollment increase of 34.7-per-cent during the same period. However, the number of students engaged in language study is still small—only 15-percent of campus enrollment. This figure is expected to climb to 30-percent of full-time enrollment (the current national average) by 1965, according to Dr. Schroeder. He expects a minimum increase of 200 students this Fall when all new students in the College of Arts and Sciences wi...

Thesis Production of "The Miser" Opens Monday Night [Newspaper Article] — Kent State University Summer News — 17 August 1961
Thesis Production of "The Miser" Opens Monday Night Moliere's world-famous comedy, "The Miser," will be presented Monday and Tuesday evenings at the air-conditioned E. Turner Stump Theatre. Admission to the 8:30 performance is free. The production, a three-act comedy, is being staged by John Jogan, grad- uate student, as part of his master's requirement. Unlike some thesis productions Jogan's staging of "The Miser" will feature complete costuming as well as stage settings for the 17th century play. In the play Harpagon, the miser, has cheated his two children out of their dead mother's inheritance and now seeks to marry the young girl his son loves. The son conspires with one of his father's underpaid, overworked and underfed servants to steal the miser's money, hide it and force the parsimonious old man to grant his children's wishes—to marry according to their heart's desires. But before these things can be accomplished, an endless variety of comic incidents occur, each more absur...
