Untitled [Newspaper Article] — The Kent Stater — 5 January 1940
To students, faculty, employees, administration and friends of Kent State university: The happiest of New Year's is the wish of Mrs. Leebrick and myself.

Time Moves Fast [Newspaper Article] — The Kent Stater — 5 January 1940
Time Moves Fast 'J'HERE is a mountain in Mexico called "San Diego" from which one can view the Pacific and the Atlantic oceans. Today, the world stands on such a mountain. In these first few days in the new year, it can look back to the past year filled with war, famine and destruction, and to the future with its uncertainty. Likewise, the individual can look back to a past and forward to a future. What he sees in the past can move him to greater achievement, or it can drag him down. Time moves fast and the first few months of the new year slip by quickly. What will occur this year must result from a survey of the past, and an immediate resolution for a brighter future.—• CP —K— J»HERE is need fqr a light or two guiding the motorist along the new Engleman hall drive. Slippery weather presents its own hazards, and illumination here would lessen them. —K—fpHANKS to the administration are in order for the repair to the steps in Merrill hall.

First, housemother asks me where I Got It. I don't know, but housemother has very fertile imagination. Immediately suggests at least 10. different places in less than that number of minutes. Asks me if I realize the cold habit is unnecessary? I do not. This stimulates her imagination further. Wonderful display of remedies immediately paraded forth. If I would drink my orange juice in the morning, if I would wear my hat, if I would dress decently, (or did Lloyd say that?), if I would do something about it, I would never have a cold. Tempted to suggest that she has been known to have colds herself ,but remember in time that peop...

College, Kent, Ohio, President of The United States, White House, Washington, D. C. Dear Mr President: I, who write this letter to you, am only a half baked college student whose whole interest is absorbed in college and in college life. The test ia sociology on Friday, the mid-semester deficiency slips; how and with whom I shall amuse myself over the weekend, and how I shall finance said amusement worries me much more than the great national and international issues that are worrying my parents, my newspapers, and my government. However, through this collegiate haze that I have about me, has penetrated some inkling of what is happening. I have become aware of the fact that the nations of Europe are e...
