He Delivers Hometown News To Pay Way Through School [Newspaper Article] — Kent State University Summer News — 28 July 1964
He Delivers Hometown News To Pay Way Through School One of the most novel ways of a student's "working his way through college" is claimed by Jack Warren, a KSU senior from Cleveland. Warren until recently was the campus's first home-delivery newspaper boy. For nearly three years Warren had been bringing the hometown news to Cleveland students via an early morning delivery of the Cleveland Plain Dealer. However, with upper division courses demanding more of his time, Warren retired as a newsboy and subcontractor of news routes on campus. "In a way I hated to quit," the pre-law and political science major said. "The work was easy. Although I had to get started early in the morning, 6:30 usually, I was finished by about 7:15 except for collecting for the papers. That usually took about two hours a week, but the fellows were great about paying in advance. "I never could get a route started in any of the girls' dorms. The University is pretty particular about letting anyone in, even for...

Length of Summer Sessions Is OK With Majority Polled KSU students prefer the current five-week summer session schedule to the prospect of spending a regular 10-week quarter in class during the summertime heat. The preference for the short summer term was the majority opinion of 20 students interviewed by the Summer News Wednesday on the KSU campus. Three of the students polled thought that the summer session term should be extended to six weeks so that the current "intensive" pace could be slowed a little. Three others voted for a regular 10-week quarter in the summer, but 13 students liked the status quo. The question: "Are you in favor of the current five-week summer sessions or would you prefer to the length of the term changed?" Here are the answers: Joanne Seimetz, Massillon junior majoring in speech and hearing therapy ... "I think it is awfully short because even in the 10-week quarter you barely have enough time for study. I think I would like to see it lengthened to one 10-...
