Petty Thievery AN ATTRACTIVE bulletin board in the Atrium cleverly called the attention of th£ students to the Wednesday night social dances and the guest columns by dance band celebrities in the Duchess.

See Your Advisor [Newspaper Article] — The Kent Stater — 4 December 1939
See Your Advisor 'J'HE DEFICIENCY marks are out, and once more Kent State students have a chance to drive hard in the second nine weeks period. It is true that many students are carrying too great a load in or out of school, or both. If the outside work of the student causes him to flunk the majority of his subjects, he is defeating his purpose. He is working outside of school to be able to get a college education, but if he can not study and pass the courses he is taking, he is working, we might say, almost for nothing. It is more expensive to make low marks and have to repeat a subject, thereby necessitating a longer period in college, than to reduce the working load and do well in the subjects that are being carried. Each student has an advisor. If a student receives a deficiency or has any problem that needs the advice of someone recognizd as an expert in education problems, the faculty advisor can do much to straighten these out. See your advisor. He can help you.—CP —K—
Assembly Periods [Newspaper Article] — The Kent Stater — 4 December 1939
Assembly Periods gEVERAL students and faculty members have mentioned that the assemblies "struck" the same class too many times. This, it was explained, led to a valuable loss of time especially for laboratory courses. The assembly committee has announced that future assemblies will continue to be "staggered" through the day and the different days of the week. But, it states that by careful planning, no classes will be missed more than twice. This procedure will be followed the rest of this semester and the second semester, but it is hoped that bginning next fall or possibly .next summer, regular assembly periods will be scheduled. This news is gratifying for assemblies are an important high spot in the calendar of events for any university.
