freshman Ed Zink Named 'Duke of’ [Newspaper Article] — The Kent Stater — 20 December 1939
freshman Ed Zink Named 'Duke of’ Victory Surprise To AIL Concerned Ed Zink, handsome freshman from Gireensburg, Ohio, was today named by the Duchess, humor magazine of Kent State university, to be the first to wear the title "Duke of Kent." Zink will wear this crown for the remainder of the school year, and if present plans jell, will turn it over to a successor next year. The selection of Zink came as a complete surprise to everyone concerned. Even the Duke himself showed surprise at the selection. Since arriving on the campus Zink has proven popular with the students. His first success was a victory in the council race in which he represented the freshman class on the Kentonian ticket. An excellent student and yet one of those "finds" that seem to find time for everything. At the moment he is unaffiliated. He comes from the farm and and enjoys talking about the country. His favorite phrase, "You outa' catch me milking cows," His famous automobile, the "Blue Bullet" is almost as we...
Kunert, Retiring Caretaker, Knew Kent State When [Newspaper Article] — The Kent Stater — 20 December 1939
Kunert, Retiring Caretaker, Knew Kent State When Two decades of service to the university were ended Saturday when John C. Kunert, superintendent of grounds, was officially retired, upon his request, by the university board of trustees. The country in back of Kent State Normal was a swamp and a wilderness when Kunert first came t© this school 18 y 2 years ago. One half of the athletic field was a gaping hole. The tennis courts were a swamp which had to be coated with coal oil to keep the mosquitos from interfering with the disciples of learning. Kunert, now 74 years old,- says that he remembers no special incident of these years. His philosophy is to try not to think of what has gone by but always to look ahead. As superintendent of the grounds, Kunert was responsible for the beautiful campus of Kent State, and he admits that it is quite a bit of work. However, he says that he likes work and to watch green things grow. He has seen a normal school grow into a university. He has witne...
Flashes Top B – W 41-28 for Third Win; Tackle Tough Ohio Wesleyan Tonight [Newspaper Article] — The Kent Stater — 20 December 1939
Flashes Top B - W 41-28 for Third Win; Tackle Tough Ohio Wesleyan Tonight Jackets Easy For Starnmen Kent State's battling cagers, showing superior speed and handling ability, took. BaldwinWallace over the bumps in an Ohio conference basketball game here Monday, 41-28. Flashing a well-coordinated defense and offense, the Starnmen dominated the play throughout the game. Except for a 9-9 tie early in the first half, they were never tied or headed by the Bereans. Their ability to take possession of the ball off the backboard was an important factor in the victory. Kent scored early and had racked up nine points before the visitors were able to score. From a point mid-way in the first half, the Flashes kept up a comfortable margin: Score at the intermission was Kent 26, B-W 15. Wade Watts and Bob Shertzer, the Jacket's two main scoring threats, were held to one basket apiece. Julius Fisher, with eight, and Jack Oberst, with seven, were high-pointers for B-W. Scoring honors for the Stater...
Find Oscar! Students Cry [Newspaper Article] — The Kent Stater — 20 December 1939
Find Oscar! Students Cry By Jay Wengett Five rather warmish gray dawns have broken over the campus since first our Oscar appeared to have disappeared. Five days and five nights now he has been strayed from the fold - - - either bumming around the spirit world .haunting people or languishing, weary and heartsick, a captive somewhere. The Alpha Omegas, who took umbrage at being accused "unjustly" of stealing Oscar, sent a committee to the Stater office yesterday and demanded that a search be made of their sorority house. "You'll find no skeleton in any of our closets" their spokesgal shouted angrily. "Anyway, what in the world would we want Oscar for?" We really have not the slightest idea what they might want - of Oscar - - - in fact, we didn't say they took him, we merely mentioned that some students told us the Alpha Omegas did it. Akron university students replied with a white paper early this morning, "We most certain- Iy did not swipe your ol' bone bag! Why should we want your s...
Battling Bishops Bring Tall Center [Newspaper Article] — The Kent Stater — 20 December 1939
Battling Bishops Bring Tall Center Bringing his team of nine lettermen to Wills gym tonight at 8 o'clock, Ohio Wesleyan university's new coach, Jim Scott, will take a crack at Kent's clicking Flashes in an attempt to make it three straight for the Battling Bishops. Kent's quintet will come up against strange opposition when Coach Rosy Starn's winning combination fights this new foe. The Bishops will be gunning for their third win, having dropped Cornell, (Iowa) and Berea of Kentucky. Tip-off man Ed Baroody, standing 6 feet and 10 inches tall, will initiate the Flashes to his "trolleywire" passes ywhich he aims at the same teammates that helped to win 16 of their 26 games last year. Jim Reiser, star of football and basketball, is the speedster of the quintet, a longshot artist, playing his third year as guard. While the Bishops are experienced players, Kent has been drawing its wins from a sophomoresprinkled team, but Coach Starn holds his experience over the neophyte Wesleyan, Coach...
Gamma's War Skit Wins Funfest Prize [Newspaper Article] — The Kent Stater — 20 December 1939
Gamma's War Skit Wins Funfest Prize By Earl Vacariu Alpha Omegas Place Second With St. Nick Before an enthusiastic throng the Sigma Tau Gamma fraternity and Alpha Omega sorority took first and second prize in the sixth annual presentation of the Funfest in the university auditorium last night. The Gammas came through with a powerfully dramatic war skit written by Jack Leggett. Ernie Williams' portrayal of a dying soldier who had just killed a fellow student was excellent. A satirical skit written by Virginia Frederick took second place for the Alpha Omegas. The skit followed the Christmas theme and was a throw-back on the administration, athletics, and politics. Their request to Santa Claus was for a "new deal." Others on the program were the Moulton hall girls in a dormitory comedy; Stanley Mouse and William Guisewhite, comis deluxe in slapstick; Pearl Rongone, pianist; Kappa Mu Kappa with a rhythmical Wizard of Oz feature; Bob Elwood and his accordian; Bob Orpin, pianist; Clara Bi...
Council Makes Funfest Rules [Newspaper Article] — The Kent Stater — 20 December 1939
Council Makes Funfest Rules Several recommendations were voted on at Student council, Monday and were sent to Dr. K. C. Leebrick, president of the university for approval or disapproval. The first was a light to be placed at the walk by the training school, at the foot of the steps leading to the university. It was also recommended that each department which receives a part of the student activity fee each semester, submit a budget at the beginning of the year giving an itemized estimate of expenditures for the year so that there will be a check on where the money goes. After a lengthy discussion on the Funfest it was decided to recommend that in the future it should be limited to university groups or individuals. Participants in the Funfest should also be chosen on theii; merits and not by the system that has been in operation in the past where four independent groups and four Greeks are chosen. There are only four independent groups who try out and are automatically chosen while o...
Today's Editorial COMMENDING CAROLERS [Newspaper Article] — The Kent Stater — 20 December 1939
Today's Editorial COMMENDING CAROLERS SPECIAL thanks should be extended to those students who participated in the carol singing Sunday night. The group sang to faculty and shut-ins alike, and various commendable remarks have been made lauding the fine job done by them. It might be a good suggestion for the Men's union and Women's league to keep this event annually on the university calendar.— CP —K— 0 N some campuses carol singing has become a tradition. High school students, with a few exceptions, believe this to be in the "sissish" vein. However carol singing is just as much culture as Keats, Byron and Shakespere and is much easier and far more enjoyable to do. We also extend our hand to the Men's union and the Women's league for this "college touch. —RK —K— It is hoped that the announcing at the basketball games will be continued as in the past year. It helps the fans learn the names of the players and aids them in following the plays.
The Other Side MANCHESTER AND STATISTICS [Newspaper Article] — The Kent Stater — 20 December 1939
The Other Side MANCHESTER AND STATISTICS By Jay Wengett A SATURDAY Letter or so ago, Dean Manchester became upon receiving a questicnaire and upon dutifully filling out the same, a statistic. lam not trying to class myself with a man like Dean Manchester, but I feel that I must report that the fell blow has fallen on me, too, and now 1 am a statistic. I didn't become a statistic in a blaze of white glory by means of a mail-sent questionaire as did Dean Manchester. I'm not really a full-fledged, no-kiddin-mug statistic which will some day help shape the destiny of man and nation. I am merely locked up in the Psychology department and reference to me will maybe tell someone just how well today's college man reads. __That is, it's supposed to tell that; and, though it nearly breaks my heart to blast anyone's hopes and to rend asunder any plan of compiling me into data and proving something or other, I must blast those hopes and tell everybody that the fine reading test which I took las...
Postscripts FROM THINGS TO THINGS [Newspaper Article] — The Kent Stater — 20 December 1939
Postscripts FROM THINGS TO THINGS THINGS We Could Do Without Those unrhythmic cheerleaders. The discipline committee's hidden rules. The campus watchman, who heckles Tom Utter. Steely stares from the librarian when you walk across the floor with cleats on your shoes. That frail looking fence around the library. The boy back home, God bless him. ❖ ❖ * Things We Could Do With A longer Christmas vacation. A better and more active student council. A new football field. A big name band for one of our local shindigs. A successful sophomore hop. A better system of grading. A more progressive Duchess. A 10 cent reduction on movie prices. A more fair method of choosing parts for our university plays. * * * Things We Could Do* We could organize the classes. We could make the freshmen wear those "too too cute hats." We could force the organizations representing the students to "get on the ball." We could clean up the "stinky" politics here, We could voice and do something about our opinions on...
Reader's Views LETTERS TO THE EDITOR [Newspaper Article] — The Kent Stater — 20 December 1939
Reader's Views LETTERS TO THE EDITOR Dear Editor: USUALLY, writers of "letters to the editor" are merely rabble-rousers or those with some particular unimportant bone of contention to chew on. These types of letters require no answer, but inasmuch as I believe the gentleman who wrote the letter regarding the recent freshman class meeting is really sincere, only misinformed, I shall endeavor to answer his letter. As far as what we are going to do with money collected, the only thing we can promise is that none will be mis-used. The reason for this is obvious. We have utterly no idea how many students are going to pay their dues, and consequently have no idea what can be done. However, in the class meeting, a few suggestions were made as to what might be done with the money collected. After all, the class itself will have the ultimate say-so as to what the major expenditures will be. The main point Hoyt seemed to be driving ; at in his letter, however, was that the officers should pub...
