Summer Theatre Season Opens Tuesday With Prize Winning Play, "Our Town" [Newspaper Article] — Kent State University Summer News — 27 June 1962
Summer Theatre Season Opens Tuesday With Prize Winning Play, "Our Town" "Our Town," Thornton Wilder's Pulitzer Prize winning play about life in a small New England town, will open the premiere season of the KSU Summer Theatre Tuesday night at 8:30. The play will have a five-night run in the air-conditioned E. Turner Stump Theatre. The human, often humorous townspeople of Grovers Corners, New Hampshire, have delighted theatre-goers since 1938, when "Our Town" opened in New York City. The Gibhs and the Webbs are the main characters in this play set in the turn of the century when life in a small town was simpler, but not without beauty, humor, and tragedy. To provide a direct link to the audience, Wilder created a New Englandish stage manager, who introduces events and often comments on them. The stage manager will be played by David Webber, who was also seen on the KSU stage in "Macbeth." Webber received his Bachelor of Fine Arts degree from Denison University, where he appeared in n...

President Bowman Questions Roger Cloud's Mathematics [Newspaper Article] — Kent State University Summer News — 27 June 1962
President Bowman Questions Roger Cloud's Mathematics House Speaker Roger Cloud disregards the fact that Ohio's state universities are year-round operations when he considers state support of higher education, the Kent State University trustees were told Thursday. President George A. Bowman said that Cloud's latest financial study ignores the parttime student and those taking summer classes. "You can better understand this by taking our present summer enrollment of 4,790 students which reduces to the equivalent of 1,100 full-time students," Dr. Bowman explained, adding: "Then if you take the part-time students during the regular academic year and reduce this load you will have another 500 to 600 full-time equivalent students. Speaker Cloud should add these to Kent's full-time Fall enrollment to obtain the correct figure for determining the amount of tax money appropriated on a per student basis." President Bowman stated that during the past decade Kent's enrollment has jumped 111 per...

Tough Admission Policy Cuts Student Failures [Newspaper Article] — Kent State University Summer News — 27 June 1962
Tough Admission Policy Cuts Student Failures Although enrollments were the highest in history, dismissals declined at Kent State University this past year because of tighter entrance standards. Kent dismissed 1,387 students or 5.4 percent of the on-campus student body for academic reasons during 1961-62. This compares with 1,392 or 6.2 percent dismissed in 1960-61 when enrollment totaled 3,232 less, University officials said today. Registrar Charles E. Atkinson attributed the decline to Kent's deferred admission policy adopted last fall. "This policy reduced the number of students who were not prepared to do college work," Dr. Atkinson pointed out. "The policy also discouraged a large number of students who would have applied for admission to Kent State University," he added. Last fall, Kent stiffened its admission practices by admitting only high school graduates with academic averages of C or better. The rest were deferred until the winter or spring quarters. Of the 449 students d...
