Editor’s Round-Up [Newspaper Article] — Daily Kent Stater — 16 January 1953
Editor’s Round-Up This was a week of transition for the returning KSU population. With the horrors of registration week behind them, students turned willingly and hopefully to the peaceful, occupation of attending (or cutting) classes. But expectation of a return to routine was squelched by a series of unexpected resignations and appointments in key campus positions. Genial Michael Radock, university public relations director and journalism professor, was the first to announce that he was leaving to do similar work for the Ford Motor company. As Professor Radock began packing his trunks for Detroit, President Bowman announced his successor. It was William A. Fisher, assistant journalism professor and a close friend of Professor Radock, who was named acting director of the KSU news bureau. For the second year in a row the president of a top student organization had trouble making his grades. The result was another “bowing out.” Bill Berzinec, pushing through a new constitution with t...
Jam Session [Newspaper Article] — Daily Kent Stater — 16 January 1953
Jam Session The hall-jamming in the first floor area between Kent and the Atrium is an irritating, vexing problem which demands solution. Although the people who congregate there do not intend to bother anyone, they do. Aside from an occasional editorial outburst and disgusted murmurs from students pushing and being pushed, no real concerted effort has been made to solve the problem. Since it is a student problem, couldn’t student groups act together to solve it? Some conscientious, responsible groups such as Inter fraternity Council, Men’s Union, Student Council, and the Booster club, with the friendly help of the Dean’s personnel offices, should study facts of the matter together. The Stater will attempt to print all suggestions offered and will take an active interest in setting up student machinery to cope with it.
Goonology Is Missing From School Curriculum [Newspaper Article] — Daily Kent Stater — 16 January 1953
Goonology Is Missing From School Curriculum EDITOR’S NOTE: (The opinions (?) expressed in the following article are those of the author and not necessarily those of the editor or his staff.) By Goon Limpus Say man—being much brought down by my last quarters schedule and curriculum, which I found was a drag on my aesthetic and tender spirit, and with thoughts of revolution stimulating my cerebellum, I was struck with a crazy inspiration. Why not offer a major in Goonology ? As dean I would proceed to juggle this quarter system into something more palatable. Instead of coming to school by the quarter, we would come to school by the fifth. One of the crazy requisites would be the history of bop. Few know the origin of the diminished fifth, (sometimes referred to as the flatted fifth), which is the backbone of bop. Cranberries have infiltrated the “Clothes Appreciation” course here. The situation is disgusting. They don’t even make mention of chartreuse berets, lavender drapes, or ostri...
Studio Theatre’s Latest Below Par [Newspaper Article] — Daily Kent Stater — 16 January 1953
Studio Theatre’s Latest Below Par By Louis Paskoff Studio Theatre Writer The Studio Theatre’s last program of one act plays last quarter was its least successful. The best production of the evening was the last play, Noel Coward’s witty, ‘‘Fumed Oak.” The play is not much more than clever, but it is successfully clever. The performers did a good job—* Carol Woods was properly hateful, in a nondescript way, as the mother-in-law; Sonya Wilson’s little girl Elsie was an apalling brat; Marcia Carlston as the wife was strident, annoying, and quite effective. Henry Gow came to life in the expertly underplayed acting of Tom Wilcoxen. The big scenes were his, and he made the most of them. He was consistent, he was good. Roman Syroid’s direction went smoothly, and was natural enough that I was rarely conscious of watching a too obvious bit of business. The by-play of the three women during Mr. Wilcoxon’s long speeches was particularly effective. Christopher Fry’s “A Phoenix Too Frequent” was...
LITTLE PROF [Newspaper Article] — Daily Kent Stater — 16 January 1953
LITTLE PROF By Larry Carpenter Today’s first two questions, oddly enough, can be thrown in the same category —the parking situation. Therefore, who would be more logical to contact for an answer than the chief of police. He promptly referred the matter to the police secretary, Mr.* Dale A. Rowe, who obliged this column by au thoring the following answers. Q —“As a challenge to your request for questions which might better the students of KSU, I offer one. How many cars is the campus capable of accommodating? This includes the Moulton parking lot, the large lot near the art building, and all other available space. Take off your mittens and shoes and get to work.” —James Monroe, L.A. A—Our mittens and shoes are off, we’ve been at work, and we have your answer. Considering this column is for students, we concern ourselves only with parkfeel we are in the right when we ing available to students, rather than including faculty and visitors spaces. With this in mind, according to article 1...
Carbon Copy [Newspaper Article] — Daily Kent Stater — 16 January 1953
Carbon Copy To the Dean of Men’s office: Students who go to the Mid Week Hop want to dance, not stand around listening to bop. The orchestra last Wednesday evening evidently thought that we were hep on hep with the result that the floor was empty. We prefer a change in style or better yet, in orchestra. Thank you. cc: to the band * * * To the Mid-Week Hoppers: The Dean of Men’s office can only suggest the type of music that a band should play. Next Wednesday’s Mid-Week Hop will feature the Harold Nelson Trio, from 8-10 p.m. in the Union ballroom. Since Mr. Nelson’s band has proven popular with Hoppers, a large crowd is expected. If the attendance is not good, however, it will mean the discontinuance of hiring bands for future dances, cc: to all others interested in dancing.

Stater Marks Printing Anniversary By Experimenting With New Format [Newspaper Article] — Daily Kent Stater — 16 January 1953
Stater Marks Printing Anniversary By Experimenting With New Format The Stater is marking the anniversary of printing this week by experimenting with its format. During this quarter, the Stater’s editors will vary their makeup techniques from issue to issue. The only thing constant about' presentation of the news will be that it will reflect the campus community in a style showing us to be the self-contained community that we are. In revising the format of the editorial page, the editors are providing the readers with editorial comments and feature materials in. departmentalized. columns which will leave no confusion as to which is which. We will not peddle comment in the guise of news to our readers. In order to keep within sight the fact that this paper is produced as a public service to its publishers, the campus community, periodic surveys of opinion will be made. When new ideas come up for the betterment of campus coverage and presentation of news, the Stater will adopt them.
10,000 Veterans Attend Kent State Since 1946 [Newspaper Article] — Daily Kent Stater — 16 January 1953
10,000 Veterans Attend Kent State Since 1946 By Bill Miller Nearly 600 veterans are attending Kent State university this winter under the GI Bill of Rights, according to Ben McGinnis, veterans’ coordinator of the University. “But that’s nothing,” McGinnis' said, “compared to the total number that has come to KSU since the bill went into effect in 1946. “Approximately 10,000 veterans have attended Kent State since then, and of this group slightly more than 4,000 have received degrees.” During the quarter which ended in December, the University trained 588 veterans. Of this total, 420 were veterans of World War II and 168 were returnees from the Korean war. Thirty-six of the men were disabled. The number has swelled a bit in the present winter quarter. Seventy new Korean Gl’s have entered school, while the number of World War II vets has dropped about 60. “It won’t be long,” McGinnis predicted, “until there’ll be more Korean vets in school than World War II men. Every quarter we get m...
