Weeping Joe Eyes Record [Newspaper Article] — The Kent Stater — 5 January 1940
Weeping Joe Eyes Record COACH &lt;JOE B&amp;GALA Kent's dynamic tutor of matmen, Coach Joe Begala, wishfully eyes the record his grapplers hung up last year, and visions of future victories were probably flashing through his mind when this picture was snapped. The one blemish on the schedule was a loss to a powerful Oklahoma U team, the Flashes' first defeat on their own mats during a string of 45 meets.
Penn State Lions Top Golden Flashes 36-21 [Newspaper Article] — The Kent Stater — 5 January 1940
Penn State Lions Top Golden Flashes 36-21 Kent's Golden Flashes suffered their second loss in six games Wednesday when they were outscored and outplayed by a powerful Penn State college team, 36 to 21. The Lions took the lead early in the game and were never threatened after, leading the entire contest by at least seven points. Kent's Griffith scored the first basket of the game, but it did not Penn long to start dropping in their counters, and the score at the half was 17-10. The visitors played a style somewhat new to Kent teams. Playing a slow game they often held the ball for over 10 seconds at a time. The height of the visitors added greatly to their all-around playing ability. Wednesday's victory was the third straight for the Lions. In the two preceeding nights the Pennsylvania, team defeated Mount Union and Akron, both future Kent opponents.
Women’s Sports Review [Newspaper Article] — The Kent Stater — 5 January 1940
Women’s Sports Review Let's follow the example set by scores of sports writers and review the progress of the Women's Athletic association of Kent State university for the past year. Since the "new year" for WAA begins in June at their annual awards banquet, perhaps that would be a good place to begin. Last June, members of WAA sat in the Robin Hood dining hall and watched their 1938-39 president, Kay Yallen, congratulate her successor, Betty Ferguson. In September when WAA opened its season of activities with a membership campaign, many old members refused to believe that a new program with definite improvements over the old would be offered. Those young ladies, however, were fooled, because a now zoning system whereby every woman on the campus was given an opportunity to participate in women's sports was set up. Dormitories, sororities, and clubs were invited to compete for the big participation cup to be presented to the organization piling up the most participation points, thus ...

3000 Jam Wills Gymnasium To Watch the Golden Flashes Score Rousing Twin Victory Wrestlers Score Initial Win in Renewed Rivalry Starnmen Take Raiders 44-43 Displaying the same fight and scrappiness they have shown since their first contest, Kent's court five eked out a bruising 44-43 victory over Mount Union Saturday night in Wills gym, before approximately 3500 fans, to give the university's first double bill of the year a perfect finish. In the first attraction of the evening, Kent's grapplers eased to a 29-5 victory over Akron U. ' The court victory over the Purple Raiders was the fourth conference win in five starts for the Flashes, and brings their season's record to five wins and two losses. In a torrid battle in which tempers flared and fists nearly flew, and at a pace which left officials almost helpless to cope with, the Golden Flashes led throughout, except for a brief few minutes in the first half. Price Scores First From the time forward Joe Price opened the scoring in th...

We Make Errors [Newspaper Article] — The Kent Stater — 8 January 1940
We Make Errors Friday's Kent Stater referred to Peg Carper as Homecoming Queen and referred to the present heating plant as the power house. In both instances the errors had been discovered before the papers were circulated but too late to correct without reprinting the entire edition. To have been correct, Miss Carper should have been mentioned as serving as Homecoming Queen, although the election had been voided. The term "power house" has been discontinued by action of the board of trustees. Perhaps, too, we owe an apology to the defeated candidates when the election was referred to as a "landslide" and a "rout." When writing under pressure, words are used which go far beyond the writer's intention. And in admitting our own mistakes, we are aware of the fact that many students and members of the faculty seem to delight in griping about errors in the Stater. In this connection, let us point out that errors and mistakes of non-journalism students seldom become common property on th...
Educators Fail [Newspaper Article] — The Kent Stater — 8 January 1940
Educators Fail gEVERAL years ago, mothers and fathers sent their children to college because they believed that a college diploma was insurance against failure in the world. Today, parents recognize that this is not so. The world realizes that a college degree is not enough. Leading educational' thinkers today are doing much. They are constantly working for new and better fields of study. But, educators are nevertheless failing the youth of our nation. They are providing changes in the curricula for colleges and universities, but they should do more to see that the prospective college student gets into the right field of work. Tests have been devised to determine in some measure the aptitudes of students, and thereby guide them into roads of study, but these are only slightly successful. One reason for this is the fact that these tests are not valid. Educators fail college youth in that they do not impress them with the value of jobs not included in the professions. There are many k...
