Pros and Cons [Newspaper Article] — The Kent Stater — 8 December 1939
Pros and Cons By Charles Maglione President Roosevelt will not seek a third term in the chief' executive's office was the opinion of Kent State students according to results of the Pros and Cons poll taken Wednesday. Seventy per cent of the students questioned on "Will President Roosevelt seek a third term," answered in the negative. Very few individuals thought he would actually seek the office for threte consecutive terms, 1 something never before done in the presidential history of this country. Possibility of a war scare drafting the president for a third term was mentioned, however, and other pertinent domestic or foreign affairs were hinted at as influencing the president's choice on the matter. Opinions expressed were as follows : I RHEA BOND, freshman —"I don't believe he will seek a third term. He may act like he might, but when the time comes I don't think he will. We'll soon find out though." DALE ZINK, senior—"Sure he will because he thinks he's done a good job so far bo...
Emancipation Proclamation [Newspaper Article] — The Kent Stater — 8 December 1939
Emancipation Proclamation LONG, long ago, in the days of long dead chivalry, men were gentlemen and not sophisticads, and lived, spoke and acted in a manner calculated to encourage the interest of the winsome femme. In spite of feminine blessings and approvals, it (chivalry) no longer thrives. In fact, it's as dead as last night's Tonf Collins. This is now the age of chislery, when some butterfly idea-ed youngster with a Hitler complex periodically arises and delivers with all the venom of a gartersnake, some scorching criticisms on "What Women Wear." Or do not wear. Or eat, or say, or do, or don't. Nertz!!! College boys are excellent examples of What Can Be Accomplished by Minding ,Other Peoples Businesses- Some of these days they'll hit mousetraps, hidden in the ca-raziest places. They fuss around and weep into their beer about hats and stuff women wear, and then run around looking like unmade beds themselves. Quoting from our famous Lloyd "A little less of this would be very easy...
Two Deficiencies For Each Student Is the Average [Newspaper Article] — The Kent Stater — 8 December 1939
Two Deficiencies For Each Student Is the Average A total of 2335 deficiencies were recorded for 1210 students at Kent State university for the first nine weeks of the school year out of an enrollment of approximately 2550 men and women. Deficiencies last April totaled 1482. Finds Nothing Unwarranted In remarking on the number, Dr. K. C. Leebrick, president of the university, said he found nothing unwarranted in the number, for 450 students could have received the total number. However, the average shows approximately two deficiencies for each person. Dr. Leebrick said mid-semester D's and F's were sent in, not as grades, but as records to the students as warning of danger. He urged students receiving them to consult with their professors, with their advisors, the dean of their college, and the dean of men or women, as soon as possible to remedy the situation. Increase Over Last Year In the college of education with an enrollment of 1400, 1165 deficiencies were sent in to 660 student...
DeWeese Toppled by Finks In Close Fight Last Night [Newspaper Article] — The Kent Stater — 8 December 1939
DeWeese Toppled by Finks In Close Fight Last Night Buccilli Winner In Semi-final Bout Akron university beat Kent State last night when Gene Finks nosed out Louis DeWeese in the main event of the Kent State university-Courier-Tribune charity boxing show held in Wills gym. Surprising as it was to many who saw the show, Finks, Akron's best heavyweight, . did beat DeWeese, Golden Gloves and American Legion champ and rated one of the tops in state amateur ranks. Finks, using a persistent left hand, calmly stole the show. The bout was not fast but flurries of action several times brought the crowd to attention. DeWeese won both the first and second rounds with his accurate left hand but Finks took over then and the fans saw a very tired DeWeese trying gamely to see and fight through the mass of blood which covered his face. The blood was the result of a wicked smash to the nose in the fourth round. The final round saw both boys very tired with Finks slightly the fresher of the two. Finks ...

The Frosh Have It [Newspaper Article] — The Kent Stater — 8 December 1939
The Frosh Have It TTPPER classmen cannot help but be impressed by the amount of publicity the freshman class has given its party today. Numerous signs and clever letters call attention of the frosh to attend the party "just for you." Reports have been made that the class is well organized, and that committees have been appointed to care for the best interests of the class.. Perhaps some of the other classes could gain a lot by organizing the group, and having just such a get-together. Too often, in a university a student knows few of the members of his class. These class parties increase friendship and make an individual feel he "belongs."—CP —K—
No More Circles [Newspaper Article] — The Kent Stater — 8 December 1939
No More Circles AT the beginning of the semester the incoming freshmen were very much bewildered with the misdirections that were put up for them. In the Stater, on mimeographed sheets, and in the catalogs, the building immediately to the west of the administration building was designated as Kent hall. Bewilderment came when students saw the words "Science hall" accompanied by an arrow, painted above the entrance to Wills gym. If the idea of changing the name of the building to Kent hall was worthy of action, it should be only a small detail to have the sign changed. All of the publications have observ 1 - ed this, why not have Kent hall designated for all to see. In a short time we will have more newcomers on the campus. Let's not make them run around in the same circles that some of the others did. —TB —K—
Give Them a Rousing Start [Newspaper Article] — The Kent Stater — 8 December 1939
Give Them a Rousing Start JJpONIGHT Kent State begins its basketball season by playing Bluffton college. Tonight Kent Staters will indicate the support they intend to give the basketball team. The game may be nothing spectacular, for the coaches will be experimenting to get the right combination that will click against the stronger teams of the future. One thing is certain. Every fan can be there to cheer. Freshmen and upper classmen should yell so loud that the gym will resound with the cheers. Let's have real basketball spirit with cheerleading second to none. The band, which did such a good job at the football games, should be on hand. If we give the team a rousing start, they will want to fight hard every game.—CP
Letters to the Editor [Newspaper Article] — The Kent Stater — 8 December 1939
Letters to the Editor Editor: ARE you a 'page one' newspaper redder? Or do you (as do most of us) flip over and read the sport page, Blondie, and Dick Tracy without considering the fate of Finland, Franklin D. Roosevelt, and the city slot machine menace. If we neglect the front page, we should not consider ourselves too well educated. Every day of the year city editors from the New York Times clear down to the Paducah Daily Bugle check over the news of the day and decide which, in their opinion, is of most importance to their readers. This news they place on page one. They believe page one news should be read first. L'il Abner finds his place in the back of the paper for obvious reasons. No one enjoys the funnies more than I do and yet I believe it is the patriotic duty of every American college student (and professor) to be well read on world affairs. Many of us are not! It is assumed that we are to be the future leaders of America. What a hopeless task that will be if we are not a...

Kent Karousal [Newspaper Article] — The Kent Stater — 8 December 1939
Kent Karousal WORKING your way through college, or even helping materially to defray the expense of higher education, is a difficult task. Time must he budgeted almost as carefully as finances. When you count the things that have to be squeezed into the collegiate day, the problem presents trying aspects. Yet, despite adversity, a large number of Kent students are doing it, and jvhat's more, they are successful. * * * Commendation is due the fellow or girl who wgnts an education badly enough to get in and work. It takes guts, a real brand of courage, coupled with a sincere desire for betterment, to give up so many of the things that are supposed to go with undergraduate life. They have to button-hole their pride and do a lot of jobs that are a far cry from pleasure. Think of the times you've seen a bunch of them, working at the Hood or the Brady, while on your way to, or from, a dance or some other social event. Put yourself in their position, and imagine how you'd feel. # *• * Many...

Intramurals [Newspaper Article] — The Kent Stater — 8 December 1939
Intramurals As the close of the intramural volley-ball season nears, one team in each league seems to be having things much its own way. In the 7:30 p. m. independent league, Bauer hall tops the league with 20 points. However, the game with Meyers hall may be the stumbling block for the undefeated Bauer team. Meyers stands only four points behind Bauer hall and the five points given for a win will enable them to tie the leaders at 21 points apiece. In the 8 p. m. independent league, Rhodes house should take the title, or at least tie with their closest rival, Parker house, eight points behind. In the inter-fraternity league, the Delta Phi Sigmas are leading with four victories and no defeats. Unless the Alpha Phi Betas score an upset, they will walk off with the volley ball honors. Student council will sponsor an assembly Tuesday morning at 10 o'clock when students will vote on cheerleading candidates.
