KSU Student Housing Situation Has Many Problems [Newspaper Article] — Kent State University Summer News — 12 July 1962
KSU Student Housing Situation Has Many Problems (This is the first of a series of articles on bousing at Kent State University.) This Fall 9,437 full time students are expected to be attending classes on campus. It is predicted that this record number will tax Kent State University's facilities to the utmost. The lack of funds to provide adequate classrooms for the record enrollment has been the source of serious concern to the University. However, the problem of where to house these students is being handled by the University without any major aid from the state legislators. The University has obtained private and fed- eral loans to construct residence halls for its students. These loans are being repaid by the housing fees charged students. When the loans are repaid, title of the buildings will revert to the State and the taxpayer will not have paid a cent toward the construction of the building. By utilizing self-help, Kent has accumulated accommodations for 3,426 students. Const...

'Arsenic And Old Lace' To Open Tuesday Night [Newspaper Article] — Kent State University Summer News — 12 July 1962
'Arsenic And Old Lace' To Open Tuesday Night Arsenic and Old Lace," Joseph Kesselring's rollicking farce about the mad-cap antics of two lovable old ladies, will open its five-performance run Tuesday night at 8:30 in the E. Turner Stump Theatre. The director is William Zucchero, assistant professor of speech. The play will follow Eugene O'Neill's comedy "Ah, Wilderness!" now being presented through Saturday night at the theatre. The third of the KSU Summer Theatre productions, "Arsenic and Old Lace" concerns the eccentric hobby of Abby and Martha Brewster. The two spinster-sisters help lonely old bachelors find peace and contentment. But they do this, much to their nephew Mortimer's dismay, with "one teaspoon of arsenic, a half teaspoon of strychnine, and just a pinch of cyanide mixed in a gallon of elderberry wine." Befuddled Mortimer has other perplexing problems. They include the arrival of his brother Jonathan, who bears a striking resemblance to Boris Karloff, and his accomplic...

Students Split on U.S. Policy on Quemoy, Matsu [Newspaper Article] — Kent State University Summer News — 12 July 1962
Students Split on U.S. Policy on Quemoy, Matsu Red China is reportedly massing troops on the Chinese mainland, opposite the islands of Quemoy and Matsu again. President Kennedy rose to the situation recently with a reiteration of the United States' policy approved by Congress seven years ago. This stand authorizes the President to use military force to defend Quemoy and Matsu if an invasion of these islands were judged to be preliminary to an assault on the Nationalist stronghold of Formosa. In an attempt to determine the students' understanding and feelings about this source of possible armed conflict the Summer News polled students on campus Thursday. Sixteen students were asked "Do you think the United States should fight to protect the islands of Quemoy and Matsu if an attack is launched on these islands by Red China?" Three students said they had not been reading newspapers this summer, and therefore had no knowledge of the situation. The remaining 13 students disagreed. Eight ...
