Into the Spirit [Newspaper Article] — The Kent Stater — 15 December 1939
Into the Spirit gUNDAY night the Men's union and Women's league are sponsoring an all-university carol sing. Students at school often miss the spirit of Christmas and the excitement that leads to this happy holiday season. We do not realize it is so near. The dining rooms have been decorated in the Yuletide spirit and a beautifully decorated tjree in Moulton hall reminds those in the dormitories that Christmas is at hand. The tree in the Atrium has in the past brought the season closer to university students. The carol sing is another opportunity for students to get into the spirit of Christmas. It is also a grand chance for students to get acquainted and really enjoy a good "old-fash-ioned" carol sing.—CP * —K—
Student Assemblies [Newspaper Article] — The Kent Stater — 15 December 1939
Student Assemblies has been called to the managment of student assemblies. It has been brought out that the student in charge of the program should speak loud enough to be heard and should have the poise and ability to command attention. This suggestion is not meant to be destructive. Such a master of ceremonies would make the assemblies more interesting. Sometimes an emergency arises, and a student must take over without much preparation. But as a general rule a student can be selected who can study the type of program and then make his message conform to it. It might be advisable for the speech department to give its members valuable experience by conducting these assemblies.—CP —K—
Be a Gracious Host [Newspaper Article] — The Kent Stater — 15 December 1939
Be a Gracious Host JgVERY game official expects a certain amount of disagreement from the crowd. He v is sort of "between it." He cannot please both sides at all times, for his close decisions must always be for one,group and against the other. It might be well for some of the over-en-thusiastic students to remember this as they lustily "boo" the officials at a basketball game. This conduct breeds ill-will and is poor hospitality. If we want to be known for our school spirit we shouold be gracious hosts to a visiting team and the officials.—CP —K— Would it be possible to have salt put on the wooden steps leading from Engleman hall to the Lowry dining hall? If winter stays, these steps will present a hazard for they slant downward and are slippery when wet.
Letters to the Editor [Newspaper Article] — The Kent Stater — 15 December 1939
Letters to the Editor Dear Editor: The following is to be no derogation to any party living or dead, just the views of a Kent boy who is merely a lowly freshman. Having lived in Kent for 14 years, gone to the university training school, and now a college boy in the ranks of the freshmen, I should know a little about Kent State university. I remember many tilings that have happened in previous years on the campus, such as the time they managed to elect a dog to be one of the queens, when Akron came to Kent and painted the sidewalks, why! I even remember when the now famous Hostettler was a then lowly manager of our basketball team at the training school. But the most I remember being talked about was crooked politics on the campus, and that is something I would like to talk over in this letter to my fellow freshmen. Dues Question Debated In our class meeting last . Friday a motion was put forth to have freshman dues. The dues being $1 for each freshman. When the motion came to a disc...

But our season's far from "rosy." For Dr. Beal, a noted scholar i To whom we'd give our bottom dollar The first Shakespeare, yes, the best So sh...
