Freshman Class May Prove To Be One of Brightest [Newspaper Article] — Kent State University Summer News — 4 August 1964
Freshman Class May Prove To Be One of Brightest This September's freshman class at KSU is already setting a record as the University's largest incoming class, and it may also set a record as the "brainiest." Forty-two per cent ranked in the top fourth of their high school graduating class, and four out of five were in the upper half, according to Admission Director J. Quentin Jones. "This is the first time we have looked at freshmen in terms of their high school rank, and the academic potential appears quite good," Dr. Jones noted. "Previous studies have been based on high school grades, which is being done again," he added. KSU, Ohio's second-largest state university, is expecting a 21 per cent increase in new freshmen—3,399 as against 2,675 who entered last September. Overall enrollment this fall is expected to reach 19,100, which is 13 per cent higher than last year when 16,600 students registered on campus and in the University's 11 off-campus centers. In his study of the approv...
University Auditorium To Be Remodeled Into Lecture Hall [Newspaper Article] — Kent State University Summer News — 4 August 1964
University Auditorium To Be Remodeled Into Lecture Hall A $25,000 renovation of University Auditorium was one of three projects for which the State Board of Control released $465,000 to KSU Friday. The other projects are construction of an addition to the University s Dr. A. O. Deweese Health Center, §360,000, and improvements to the Andrew W. Paton Airport, $BO,OOO. Emil Berg, University business manager, said that only the renovation of the University Auditorium will be completed this year. Engineering studies and architectural plans have yet to be done on the health center and airport projects. The renovation of the auditorium will turn it into the University's largest lecture hall. Some 1,000 seats with movable desktype arms will be installed. The theatre stage will be retained. Berg said that it is doubtful that the auditorium can be remodeled in time for the start of the Fall Quarter. He said that work during the quarter is out of the question because of the large number of le...

All tickets for the children's plays are priced at 50 cents. Ferdinand and the Dirty Knight, written by KSU graduate student Gene Jackson, blends the makebelieve world with a humorous view of reality. "The dirty knight" wins his title of dubious distinction because he goes out camping and forgets to take along soap. "Ferdinand," the local mop-maker, and "Sir Bully" set out to corral the unwashed creature and on their mission meet various adventures. Playing "Ferdinand" will be Ken Ross, who also was featured in the Summer Theatre's One Thousand and One Spells to Cast, another children's play...

'Rain' Splashing Hit on Summer Stage [Newspaper Article] — Kent State University Summer News — 4 August 1964
'Rain' Splashing Hit on Summer Stage Rain, the third play in the KSU Summer Theatre season, has in its favor a good cast, a strong script and probably the most spectacular special effects of many a University Theatre production. Throughout a major part of the performance, water visibly deluges the background of the Pago Pago setting. Lightning flashes, thunder crashes and the sound of the incessant rain helps strike the mood of monotony and frustration in the small South Seas trading post, where a group of travelers wait out the monsoon season. The play, which ran last week and will play again Wednesday through Saturday nights, is based on a well-known short story, "Miss Thompson," by W. Somerset Maugham. Although the action is set in 1922, the tale itself has lost little of its power. The struggle between the disreputable, carefree "Sadie Thompson" and the overlyzealous missionary "the Reverend Davidson" still has an electric excitement. Too, the script by John Colton and Clemence ...
