Laughter Welcomes Charley's Aunt To University's Summer Theatre [Newspaper Article] — Kent State University Summer News — 21 July 1964
Laughter Welcomes Charley's Aunt To University's Summer Theatre Charley's Aunt may be aging, but the current production at the E. Turner Stump Theatre proves there's still life in the old gal yet. The farce-comedy, first performed in 1892, is handicapped by a slow opening and an overabundance of plot coincidences. But the KSU Summer Theatre troupe sparks life into tried and true situations for an evening of laughs for much of the audience who attended the four performances last week. The play will open again Wednesday evening for a second four-night run at the air-conditioned Stump theatre. Much of the credit for the current production's success must go to Duane E. Reed, who not only served as director, but also took charge of settings and costuming as well. The Gay Nineties costumes are truly dazzling, and three handsome settings add to the resplendency of the show. Still, without the hilarious antics of that comic frump, "Charlie's Aunt," the play would never have survived time's ...

Students Say: Student Union Not Adequate To Meet Needs of Campus [Newspaper Article] — Kent State University Summer News — 21 July 1964
Students Say: Student Union Not Adequate To Meet Needs of Campus The majority of students polled by the Summer News Wednesday morning said they thought the KSU Student Union was not big enough to adequately meet the needs of the campus. The dissatisfied students indicated a range of from $2 a quarter to $25 a school year as being a fair increase in student fees to build a new Union. The University has its own committee examining the situation, and it will report to President Robert I. White in late August or early September. The Summer News poll on the Student Union was not sanctioned by the committee nor does it have any official connection with the committee's work. In this random sampling KSU students were asked "Do you think the Student Union is big enough to meet the needs of the campus?" If the student indicated that the Union was not adequate he was asked "Would you be willing to pay additional fees to build a new Union and if so, how much?" Here are the answers: Bill Gordos,...
