KSU Police Warn Parking Violators [Newspaper Article] — Kent State University Summer News — 30 June 1964
KSU Police Warn Parking Violators A crackdown on illegal parking on campus is underway today according to Leßoy Peach, assistant campus security officer. The major target of the campus police campaign is students driving automobiles on campus that are not registered with the campus police and students who park in places reserved for faculty, staff and visitors. If a summer school student is found driving an unregistered automobile on campus he must pay a $5 fine. Students parking illegally are subject to a $2 fine which automatically jumps to $5 if not paid within a specific period of time. Additional parking offenses are subject to $5 fines. Students must pay these fines before they will be given grades for the session's work during which the traffic ticket was issued. Peach said that there is no penalty for late registration of a student automobile. He added, "The only penalty is when we find the student parking illegally. Then it's too late to register the car and avoid a fine."<...

The Penny Papers, Literary Effort, Started by Students Two KSU seniors are publishers of a new national literary magazine, The Penny Papers. Don Baker, Jr., and David L. Burkhart, both English majors, are editors and publishers of the quarterly publication designed to offer quality fiction and poetry by known and new writers. "There is a need for new writers and poets to see honest writing published," explained Burkhart. "We feel that writers today are turning too commercial and mass-producing poetry and fiction." Baker, in a brief editorial in the first issue, states that "the so-called literary magazines today are either not composed of literature or their publication is devoted to the debate of moot and unimportant critical points."
