The Big Three [Newspaper Article] — Daily Kent Stater — 15 January 1953
The Big Three With the appointment of Miss Janet Knapp to the position of acting director of the United Christian Fellowship on campus, the university religious office is brought up to its full strength of three once more. Miss Knapp, who worked with her predecessor Rev. A. Laten Carter in setting up the UCF organizational machinery this year, was the logical successor to the position. She has earned the respect and confidence of the group while working with Reverend Carter and has made many other friends as well. In counseling students on spiritual matters, she joins Rev. Charles V. Ireland, director of Wesley Foundation, and Rev. George P. Mulroy, chaplain of the Newman club. Together, these three, also represent an opportunity for students of all faiths to gather together with people of their own denomination for social, religious and cultural activity. Miss Knapp will bring to United Christian Fellowship the same inspirational leadership which has characterized the organization ...
Opportunity Knocks [Newspaper Article] — Daily Kent Stater — 15 January 1953
Opportunity Knocks An exciting challenge is now being offered to students who pride themselves on writing “deathless prose” and composing “inspiring, hit songs.” The challenge is meaningful since the best work will be presented across the footlights as “No Time For Classes,” the student written, directed, and acted production in April. “No Time For Classes” was born of student ambition to satirize the best in college life. Since its beginning it has made use of creative writers, natural talent, and volunteer stage crews. Although all were inexperienced they entered into their jobs with a fierce determination to make good and generally did. This year’s parade of events offers potential script writers the same opportunity. There are no rules governing the length of scripts and the play may be original or adapted. This should be an added incentive to authors who are yearning to come up with a super-colossal production, (preferably a musical comedy). Oftentimes many, rigid rules are dis...

Graduate Student Tours Campus In Wheel Chair [Newspaper Article] — Daily Kent Stater — 15 January 1953
Graduate Student Tours Campus In Wheel Chair Edward Cobb, a 29-year-old graduate student from Akron, has proved you can go to college in a wheel chair and do a good job of it. Ed is the son of Mr. and Mrs. Donald F. Cobb, 778 Greenwood avenue, Akron, and from looking at his past activities you would never know he is handicapped. In 1942, after graduation from&lt; Salem high school, Ed spent a semester at Ohio Northern university in Ada, but that was cut short by his draft call by the army. It was during the fall of 1944 in France that Ed contracted the polio that has crippled him. “They put me in all sorts of army hospitals,” Ed recalled. “I guess I was the longest in the Army-Navy General hospital in Hot Springs, Arkansas.” It was there that Ed decided he would take his challenge and go to college even in a wheel chair. First, he went to Pepperdine collge in Los Angles, and then to Baldwin-Wallace college for three years, where he graduated last June with a bachelor of arts...

KENT ONFIDENTIAL By Jim Butler PROFILE . . . ola frustrated basketball coach. This is an inside look at the mind of Clarence “Bud” Haerr, Kent’s hard luck coach. It’s a look at the thinking of a coach who has lost six games by five or less points. Haerr, in his second year as head coach at Kent, started the season with few veterans and not much optimism on the part ol*m* followers. But his team amazed everyone by coming so close to many of the top teams of Ohio and the Mid-American conference. On the bench Haerr is a ball of fire. He shouts. He yells. He buries his face in his hands. But above all he thinks. He thinks of the fourth quarter and wonders if his team will hold out. Most of the time this year, ( . they haven’t. Haerr stays up late at nights. This is so he won’t get in bed and start thinking about the team’s mistakes. During his career Haerr has built up two superstitions. He never gets a haircut on the day of a game and he wears the same suit after winning a game. But he...

Language Students Meet Batista By Larry Carpenter Christmas vacation, Cuban style, was. celebrated several weeks ago by four foreign language students when they accompanied Professor Alberto Pamies, foreign language instructor, to his home town of Havanna, Cuba.

C. A definite high point of the trip was an evening spent at the Cuban Army and Navy club where they were introduced to President Fulgencio Batista, highest executive of Cuba’s government. “Cubans are extremely friendly, and the men especially chivalrous,” the girls commented. One of their few bad impressions wa...

That’s when the Golden Flashes will head down-state to Springfield to play Wittenberg. Tuesday night the Flashes won’ the first “close” game they’ve been in all year by beating arch-rival fcbungstown 69-65 at the MPE building.
