The Other Side WE GO TO WAR—AND DIE [Newspaper Article] — The Kent Stater — 6 December 1939
The Other Side WE GO TO WAR—AND DIE rpHE seven of us sat huddled about the fuel-can fire in the wet cavedin dugout. Outside, rain drizzled down in am impersonal, to-the-devil-with-you-buddy manner and, high in the sky, a tiny pursuit plane played piggie-back with mushroom-like puffs of smoke from bursting anti-aircraft shells. The seven of us sat there and shivered as raw wind swirled coldly on us. Mixed with the smudgy smell of burning, oil-soaked wood was an odor of frying canned beef; we were eating. "This stuff tastes," said Sam Fogg, "Oh, well, what's the difference how it tastes? We have to eat it. This, my cherubic, much loved lads, is war." Ernie Williams, his broken nails tapping out a tune on his tin hat. looked at the kinks of silver in Sam's dark-red hair and echoed him, ". . . yes, it's war." Ernie's once-happy plump face was growing tired and sad-looking and lean and his forehead was question-marked with lines which seemed to tell and ask, "here I am, but why?" I watch...
Postscripts A COLUMN BY TED CHARLES [Newspaper Article] — The Kent Stater — 6 December 1939
Postscripts A COLUMN BY TED CHARLES IN again, out again Finnegan, that's the story of the slot machines — Now they're in. After all, elections are over. Crampton and Seese, unleash you bloodhounds - - - Tally Ho! there goes the slots. I see where that fellow Lloyd is loose again. I suggest that Mr. Lloyd write a book for girls entitled "How to be Beautiful." Then I suggest you girls should read the book and do just the opposite of what Mr. Lloyd says. By doing that you're sure to be beautiful. Boys, did you know that it has been decided by a committee, here at school, that whatever punishment is inflicted on girls for infractions of the rules - - - the same will be dished out to their escorts, meaning you! Look on page 36 of your "K" book. Here it deals with the use of Alcholic beverages. But, as far as I can see, and I'm fairly certain I have normal eyesight, the rule as stated pertains to "she" and "her" saying nothing about "him" or "he." If the committee is going to enforce such...
Reader’s Views LETTERS TO THE EDITOR [Newspaper Article] — The Kent Stater — 6 December 1939
Reader’s Views LETTERS TO THE EDITOR EDITOR: As the mid-term of the first semester passes, I have definitely arrived at a conclusion. This conclusion is very simple. It consists of criticizing the various teachers for their failure to get together and decide on a general plan for grading the students, instead of using their own. Perhaps their own plan or method is highly efficient; however, we can't overlook the fact that one method of grading may not give the same rating to work handed in by a student as another method. This condition, I believe, presents a real problem for the faculty of the university. Two pieces of work, produced by students and possessing equal effort in all respects, may, according to different methods of rating, receive a higher and a lower merit. If this condition exists, and I strongly believe it does, then it's highly possible for a student to exert greater effort in one course and receive less in rating than in a course which he hasn't exerted his best ab...
