The Death Of An Oak Tree [Newspaper Article] — Daily Kent Stater — 3 October 1952
The Death Of An Oak Tree By Bruce Limpus There was an ill wind that blew nobody any good Wednesday night, particularily the old oak tree that once stood on Stater Square. The sturdy old oak proved to be full of holes. Even with a heart of stone the old tree couldn’t withstand the tempest of the night. For years the efforts of man have succeeded in sustaining the oak’s life, but the big wind which blew in from the northeast proved to be too great a match for anyone. It is rumored among some of the upper classmen that the tree, after seeing some of the beautiful new freshmen girls couldn’t stand the strain and just gave up the ghost. Nobody knows how old the tree is, but I started counting the rings and gave up after two hundred and twenty three. It seems almost incredible that it was once a little acorn. The little adage about little acorns growing into great oaks doesn’t mention anything about beautiful freshman girls. I understand that the old tree will be cremated in the Stopher h...
Girl Ballplayer Reveals Story Of Her Career [Newspaper Article] — Daily Kent Stater — 3 October 1952
Girl Ballplayer Reveals Story Of Her Career By Ernie Mazza Ever try to interview a catcher from the American Girls Baseball League? It’s like trying to get a bloop single and coming up with a grand slam home run! That is if the girl happens to be Lois Youngen, veteran catcher for the Fort Wayne Daisies who delights in telling one and all of her experiences during the “big league” summer. Peppy Lois, a sophomore student here during two quarters of the school year, is from Leßoy, Ohio (pop. 330). Her father, Ty Youngen, captained KSU’s baseball team during the 1925-26 seasons. In her second season of professional ball, the 18-year-old backstop played in over a third of the games with the power-laden Daisies and batted a sparkling .290. (Her formula to success: “I choke up on the bat and poke.”) But what really made Lois happy was the fact that the Daisies copped the pennant by winning 78 games while dropping only 22! Competition in the American Girls Baseball league is keen and the ri...
Flashes Clash With Red Cats Tonight Gridders Seek Third Straight Victory [Newspaper Article] — Daily Kent Stater — 3 October 1952
Flashes Clash With Red Cats Tonight Gridders Seek Third Straight Victory By Bill Bicksler Kent State’s Golden Flashes will try for their third straight win of the season tonight when they clash with Western Reserve at 8:15 on the local gridiron. But it won’t be easy; the Red Cats are mad. They had a bad break last week. Reserve dropped their opening game last week to Toledo 10 to 9. The Red Cats were leading 9 to 7 with less than a minute remaining when a Reserve pass defender was ruled guilty of pass interference. This put the ball on the twelve yard line, and two plays later Toledo kicked a successful field goal from the six yard line. Coach Ed Finnegan blames inexperience for the loss. The starting lineup lists only five seniors. Kent State will use their “SplitT” offense against Reserve’s “Swinging Single Wing.” The Flashes’ first step toward the MidAmerican Conference title was a victory over Western Michigan 20 to 13. The “Split-T” proved very successful in last week’s game in...
Ed Lopat, Roe Tangle Today [Newspaper Article] — Daily Kent Stater — 3 October 1952
Ed Lopat, Roe Tangle Today With the World Series tied at one game apiece, both managers will lead with their ace southpaws in today’s third game. The Yankees’ Casey Stengel will send Ed Lopat to the mound while Chuck Dressen of the Dodgers will call on Preacher Roe to do his hurling. They will be the first starting lefthanders to appear in the Series this year. New York played like champions yesterday as Vic Raschi set Brooklyn down on 3 hits in their own home park to cop a 7-1 win from the Bums. The Yanks routed Brooklyn’s starter, Carl Erskine, with a 5 run uprising in the sixth inning. With two mates aboard the little Yankee second baseman, Billy Martin, blasted a drive far into the left field stands to insure the New York win. Though erratic in the early innings, Raschi settled down and pitched faultless ball in the late stages. Brooklyn was first to score when Roy Campanella drove a single between short and third to score a runner from third. The Yanks collected 10 hits from th...
Trio Plugs Gaps In Line [Newspaper Article] — Daily Kent Stater — 3 October 1952
Trio Plugs Gaps In Line “Hold that line,” shouted the enthused KSU fans and their prayers were answered. The dynamic trio of Willie DiVincenzo, Dale Poland and Ed Sullivan bolster the center of the line leaving no crevices for the opposition to pass through. Play after play Foland and Sullivan would shoot through the line to grab the quarterback before he could get the ball away in the Mount Union game. The fans were claiming that they were off-side but it was the alert and aggressive playing of these two line backers that did the job. From previous grid tilts the enemy has found little yardage to gain and even less scoring because of this trio. DiVincenzo, 'a two year letterman, may give the Western Reserve gridders some easy breathing if his injury, sustained in last week’s tilt is not completely healed. The 21-year-old senior was a backfield star at John Adams high school in Cleveland. Willie made the all-scholastic and EastSenate teams. Last year earned a berth on the Mid-Americ...
Edington Is SubForTrev [Newspaper Article] — Daily Kent Stater — 3 October 1952
Edington Is SubForTrev The unsung member of the Golden Flash coaching staff is Homer Edington, head line coach. Homer works diligently month after month, scouting, coaching and looking up new material for Kent. When Trevor Rees, the athletic director, is away Homer takes over the job. Homer began his coaching career while still attending Ohio State university. He sustained a knee injury during his sophomore year at Ohio State and was forced to quit the gridiron. He then devoted his remaining two years to assisting with the frosh squad. After graduating from OSU in 1938, Homer coached at University high school, Fairfield high, and Upper Arlington. His coaching career was interrupted by a two-year hitch in the service. Upon his discharge, Homer returned to Ohio State where he served as line coach for three years. He then took the athletic directorship at Chillicothe in 1946 where he remained until coming to Kent. Homer is a great leader in boys organizations. He was supposed to go to ...
Mid-American Highlights [Newspaper Article] — Daily Kent Stater — 3 October 1952
Mid-American Highlights By Jim Witzberger Early leadership in the Mid-American Conference grid race may be clarified somewhat this weekend, with two of the three pace-setters in loop games. Currently tied for first with a win* apiece are Kent State, Toledo, and Miami. Ohio University enters the race by challenging Toledo’s share of the lead at Athens Saturday while Western Reserve, one-point, lastminute loser to Toledo last week, invades Kent. All others engage in non-conference contests —Cincinnati, defending champion, at Tulsa; Western Michigan at Central Michigan, Bowling Green at Ohio Wesleyan while Miami takes on Xavier at home. Some individual stars have emerged in early conference play, although comparative statistics on both team and individual play are just beginning to shape up. So far the most impressive ball-carrier appeared to be a slender sophomore, Miami’s 157-pound Dick Hunter, carrying II times for 107 yards and two touchdowns in his first conference performance as ...

School Spots [Newspaper Article] — Daily Kent Stater — 3 October 1952
School Spots Manhattan college has drawn up a tutoring plan whereby students in need of tutorial help have an opportunity for supervised study under the direction of upperclassmen. The upperclassmen, having attained distinction in the courses concerned, work under the general supervision of the heads of the various departments. The tutoring is done on an average of two hours a week from 8 to 8:50 a.m. before the start of the regular class schedule at 9 a.m. There is no fee charged for this service. The plan was started when it was recognized that a great potential exists in the student body for mutual assistance in increasing the effectiveness of the instructional activities of the faculty. Qualified upperclassmen who serve as the tutors have an opportunity to gain experience in transmitting knowledge and the students receiving the tutoring acquire assistance in a setting free from the inhibitions that characterize faculty-adminis-tered tutorial programs. An appeal to the colleges a...
