KSU Delaying Admission Of C-High School Grad [Newspaper Article] — Kent State University Summer News — 5 July 1962
KSU Delaying Admission Of C-High School Grad A newspaper story that Kent State University is relaxing its deferred admission policy and accepting freshmen with less than a C average in high school was called erroneous to- day by Richard G. Rotzel, director of admissions. Rotzel said that the Universityis accepting for classes this Fall only high school graduates with at least a C average. Admission of all other high school graduates is being deferred until the winter quarter, which starts in January, or the spring quarter, which opens in March. This procedure is a continuation of the admission policy started last fall when 449 would-be members of the freshman class who had less th«n a C average were not permitted to register until the winter and spring quarters. Adoption of the deferred admission policy is viewed by University officials as a means of meeting booming enrollment with limited facilities and funds. Dr. Charles Atkinson, University registrar, said that Kent as a state-su...

Rollins, Former KSU Diamond Star, Fools Major League Baseball Scouts [Newspaper Article] — Kent State University Summer News — 5 July 1962
Rollins, Former KSU Diamond Star, Fools Major League Baseball Scouts Only two years ago baseball scouts were turning in reports that Rich Rollins, a second baseman on the KSU diamond squad, would never make it in the majors. Today, Rollins, a third baseman on the pennant-contending Minnesota Twins, is being touted as a good bet for rookie of the year. Rollins is high in the American League's batting race as well as in the home run and "RBI" columns. The latest tribute to Rollins' ability came from the major league players themselves. He topped the selections voted by the players for the Major League's All-Star Game which will be held Tuesday in Washington, D. C. Rollins received 184 votes. Mickey Mantle of the New York Yankees was next in line with 182 votes. But back in 1960 Dr. Matt Resick, then baseball coach, was involved in a major selling job to get his infielder a chance at the big time, a chance that Resick thought was long over due. "To this day I can't understand why they ...
Watson Watts ... Plays Same Role, But Times, Audience Change [Newspaper Article] — Kent State University Summer News — 5 July 1962
Watson Watts ... Plays Same Role, But Times, Audience Change In 1938 Watson Watts, a gangly KSU junior, played the role of middle-aged "Editor Webb" in the University's production of "Our Town." Today, a successful businessman and president of the KSU Alumni Association, Watts is recreating the same role in the Summer Theatre's production now running at the E. Turner Stump Theatre. The lines Watts has relearned are the same, but many other things have changed. Today he is Kent insurance underwriter, some 50 pounds heavier than the speech and English major of 24 years ago. In the current production Watt's stage son, Wally, is being played by his real-life son, Michael, 14. Another son, Jeffrey, 17, is also in the cast. Watts didn't plan all this —in fact, he never really tried out for the play. His activities with Alpha Psi Omega, dramatic honorary, set the stage for landing the role. While in the Music and Speech Center on business for the honorary, Watts ran into Prof. G. Harry Wri...
Student Activity Center [Newspaper Article] — Kent State University Summer News — 5 July 1962
Student Activity Center In order to ease the crowded condition of the ''Hub" and to provide for the needs of students on an expanding campus, the University opened an "addition" to the "Hub" on the ground floor of Johnson Hall. The "addition's" official name is Student Activity Center, but the students have shortened this to "SAC." "SAC" is stocked with vending machines to dispense sandwiches, ice cream, coffee, soft drinks and milk. The center also has facilities for billiards and table tennis. A TV room is also included in the offerings of SAC. Students utilize the building for recreation, fellowship and study. Vending machines line the background as these students exchange the news of the day in the Center's lunchroom. The lunchroom at "off-hours" is sometimes an excellent place to study. An accounting major finds "SAC" a good place to do homework. Baseball is the favorite subject of these "SAC" TV viewers. Photos by john R. The Religious Office as well as the Alumni Office are h...

Students Split in Poll On Classroom Prayer By a vote of 6-1 the Supreme Court ruled Tuesday, June 26, that it was unconstitutional to require New York school children to recite the "Regent's Prayer," a non-sectarian prayer. The prayer: "Almighty God, we acknowledge our de- pendence upon thee, and we beg thy blessings upon us, our parents, our teachers and our country." The day after the ruling was made, Wednesday, June 27, The Kent State University Summer News polled 15 students at random on the campus.
