LIBRARY PROBLEM CITED Books Are Missing, Mutilated [Newspaper Article] — Kent State University Summer News — 10 August 1955
LIBRARY PROBLEM CITED Books Are Missing, Mutilated Missing books are of no value to those seeking them. Unthinking people have created quite a problem at the KSU library by damaging and pilfering books and periodicals. Such publications as Compton’s and World Book encyclopedias lose their value when a volume or two is stolen. Current periodicals have covers torn off and pages missing. Such damaged magazines are of little or no value to future students. * * * It might be thought that termites are a major problem for libraries—they are, but not nearly as much of a problem as destructive humans. Termites, unlike humans, are easily brought under control. Ready access to information is one of the key factors in the kind of education this institution and all institutions stands for, John B. Nicholson Jr., KSU Librarian points out. A book that is locked away is of no use to anyone. Even a book that has to be used under closely controlled conditions is not used in the same atmosphere of fre...

Flash Gridders Hold Down Variety Of Jobs In Summer Summer activities of members of Kent State University’s football team range from a trip to Europe to a job as bouncer at a night club. Little Annello (Ike) Liberati, 5 ft. 4 in. senior tackle from Bellaire, made the trip to Europe. And burly Mike Norcia, 220-Ib. senior fullback from Canton, has the job as bouncer. Liberati went on a four-week cruise with the Akron Naval Reserve outfit. He returned in time to enroll for the second session of KSU’s summer school. Norcia, who is employed at Gen-eva-on-the-Lake, says he officially goes by the title of "special policeman." The all-Mid-American conference halfback of last year has been on the job at Geneva for the past few summers. Meanwhile, most of the other Golden Flashes are toughening themselves for the coming football season by working on construction gangs or as laborers. That suits Coach Trevor J. Rees just fine. "Those jobs keep the boys in condition,” he says. ''And when they co...
