University Offers Students Low-Interest Loans (This is the second article in a twopart series on loans available to Kent State University students.) Three sources of loan funds are available to KSU students through the University's Student Financial Aids Office, 119 Kent Hall. During the last school year Benjamin G. McGinnis, director of Student Financial Aids, processed applications for about $125,000 in student loans. "National Defense Student Loans" accounted for the majority of this total. From September of 1961 through the first summer term of this year, a total of $116,000 was loaned to students from this fund. The money was loaned in quarterly installments to qualified students to pay the "actual cost of attending of college;" this includes books, tuition, room and board. These National Defense Student Loans are made at the rate of three percent simple interest on the unpaid balance. Repayment of these loans is not scheduled to begin until one year after the student graduates...

Testing Specialists Say Public Too Awed by Tests [Newspaper Article] — Kent State University Summer News — 16 August 1962
Testing Specialists Say Public Too Awed by Tests The public puts too much faith in students' scores on aptitude and achievement tests, three Kent State University testing specialists said today. Such tests are not infalliable indicators of an individual's potential or knowledge, the three men stated. But all agreed that the tests are the only mass production method of measuring college aptitude. This is the consensus of Dr. Dwight Arnold, professor of education and head of the Counselor Training Center at KSU; Dr. V. Edwin Bixenstine, assistant professor of psychology and acting director of the Psychology Clinic; and Dr. Henry F. Dizney, assistant professor of special education and director of the University's Examination Aids Center. Dr. Arnold, who directs the program which trains guidance counselors for high schools, maintains that the aptitude tests given in high schools are not true indicators of a student's ability. "But these tests are the best we have," he added. "A test tha...
Students Say 'Moon Shot' Worth Cost of $30-Billion [Newspaper Article] — Kent State University Summer News — 16 August 1962
Students Say 'Moon Shot' Worth Cost of $30-Billion The projected trip by U. S. spacemen to the moon is a step that should be taken despite its estimated cost of perhaps $3O-billion. This is the nearly unanimous opinion of students polled on the KSU campus last Thursday by the Kent State University Summer News. Fifteen students were asked: "For the United States to land a man on the moon and bring him back to earth will cost an estimated $3O-billion. Do you think the moon shot is worth the money?" Thirteen students gave unqualified yes answers to the question. One gave a qualified yes and another said definitely no. The poll question was prompted by Warren Weaver's article, "What a Moon Ticket Will Buy," in a recent issue of the Saturday Review. The article pointed out that the estimated $3O-billion needed for this space project could be used instead to finance a package of items of significant worth to society. Some of the items in this $3O-billion package were gifts of SlO-million ...

Pending Expansion of KSU Fraternity System Contradicts Critics of Greeks [Newspaper Article] — Kent State University Summer News — 16 August 1962
Pending Expansion of KSU Fraternity System Contradicts Critics of Greeks Critics of the fraternity system at Kent State University may say that greek lettered social organizations are dying at KSU, but the expansion program of the "greeks" contradicts this opinion.

Beer, assistant dean of men in charge of advising the fraternity system at KSU, reports that the national greek lettered organizations interested in establishing at Kent are Lambda Chi Alpha, Phi Sigma Delta, Pi Kappa Alpha, Sigma Pi and Delta Chi.

First Coed Is Candidate for Bachelor of Architecture [Newspaper Article] — Kent State University Summer News — 16 August 1962
First Coed Is Candidate for Bachelor of Architecture Five years ago, six women enrolled in the School of Architecture at Kent State University. Only one has completed the difficult five year academic program. She is 23-year-old Emma Lee Supplee, who will become Kent's first woman graduate with a bachelor of architecture degree. She will receive her degree at commencement ceremonies, August 25. Previously the architectural undergraduate program was four years in length and a bachelor of fine arts degree was awarded. Professor Joseph Morbito, head of Kent's School of Architecture, is quick to praise the attractive young woman from Pennsylvania.

"When she entered Kent as a freshman, I had the feeling that here was a young woman who would make it through the entire program," he adds. Miss Supplee did not...
