Today’s Editorial THE MOST BEAUTIFUL CAMPUS IN OHIO? [Newspaper Article] — The Kent Stater — 29 November 1939
Today’s Editorial THE MOST BEAUTIFUL CAMPUS IN OHIO? the "pond" they are constructing fences in another "war to end wars." These fences are constructed to do harm. Here we are constructing fences to keep the people off the grass. These fences are constructed to do good. But several of the students took a sarcastic stand and although in different phrases, meant—"so this is the most beautiful campus in Ohio?" They are correct. Have you noticed the campus lately? Winding paths cutting corners, fences constructed to stop traffic on these paths, and burnt grass traces —all give the campus a large blackeye. Why is it that they have to place fences around the school? Other colleges have their campus fence free. Kent students could use the provided sidewalks. The fence bordering the sidewalk around the library shouldn't have to be there. We should have enough common sense to appreciate a beautiful campus and do all in our power to maintain "the most beautiful campus in Ohio."—R.K.

Reader's Views LETTERS TO THE EDITOR [Newspaper Article] — The Kent Stater — 29 November 1939
Reader's Views LETTERS TO THE EDITOR Dear Editor: MANY Pearsons on the campus are asking why the assembly period is not scheduled at a stated time on a regular day. The lack of an adequate number of class rooms is the important reason for the present system of "staggering" assembly periods. It will be necessary to continue this procedure for the remainder of this semester and for the duration of the second semester this year. With this explanation it is hoped that all questions will be answered. The assembly program committee solicits the patience of all who are concerned about the assembly. It seems safe to promise that" beginning next fall, or possibly next summer, no one will have cause to complain because assembly periods will be scheduled regularly. Assembly Program Committee Prof. D. W. Pearce Chairman.
