Co-Authors Write: Children Are Raised 'Under A Cloud of Race Thinking' [Newspaper Article] — Kent State University Summer News — 11 August 1964
Co-Authors Write: Children Are Raised 'Under A Cloud of Race Thinking' America's children are being raised "under a cloud of race-thinking," according to Dr. Oscar W. Ritchie and Dr. Marvin R. Koller, professors of sociology at KSU. "The greatest roadblock to a reasonable resolving of racial issues lies with the creation of personality types that are not easily manipulated," they point out in their new book, Sociology of Childhood. "Sensitive, bitter, tough, sullen, or angry personalities created in childhood reach fruition in adulthood, and such persons will probably not listen to reason," they say, adding: "Creating personalities that are arrogant, conceited, tyrannical or bigoted maximizes the explosiveness of the issue. If this is vaguely realized by those who socialize the young, perhaps there may be more caution exercised in dealing with children when racial questions occur." They label the race area "explosive" and warn that racial bitterness is "a most threatening condition ...
Students Are Split on 'Right' Of State U To Be Selective [Newspaper Article] — Kent State University Summer News — 11 August 1964
Students Are Split on 'Right' Of State U To Be Selective Kent State University students were split Wednesday morning when questioned on a state university's right to be selective in its admission of students. Ten of the 18 students polled said state universities should admit all who apply. Eight students thought the state universities should have the right to be more selective. The deferred admission policy which was instituted at KSTJ in 1961 was cited by several of the students. One thought the policy risked the exclusion of potentially good students, while two others thought that the deferred admission of students with less than a C high school average was a good thing. The question which sparked the conflict of opinion was: "By law the state universities of Ohio must admit every graduate of an Ohio high school who seeks admission to a state university. Do you think the law should be changed to permit the universities to be more selective in whom they admit?" The answers: Roger J...

Aid to KSU Students Will Increase Nearly $1OO,OOO [Newspaper Article] — Kent State University Summer News — 18 August 1964
Aid to KSU Students Will Increase Nearly $1OO,OOO A near $lOO,OOO increase in scholarships and loans for KSU students was predicted for the coming school year lay the director of the University's Student Financial Aids Office today. Benjamin G. McGinnis made the prediction as he outlined expected increases in the University's financial aids program which did more than $380,000 worth of business last year.

Records show that for this fiscal year, which ended June 30, a total of $203,965 was loaned to 362 students to help finance their education. This was an increase of 86 NSD loans totaling $68,638 over those granted the previous fiscal year. McGinnis predicts "at least a similar increase" in loans for the coming year. McGinnis also sees a $lO,OOO increase in the activity of various other loan funds handled through...
Education Minors To Be Certified For Teaching [Newspaper Article] — Kent State University Summer News — 18 August 1964
Education Minors To Be Certified For Teaching New academic routes to the teaching profession will be opened to KSU undergraduates during the coming school year. Under the new programs undergraduates will be able to gain certification as a secondary school teacher by minoring in education. Previously only KSU undergraduates enrolled as majors in the College of Education were certified as secondary school teachers. Another change is that College of Education undergraduates will soon have the choice of working for either a bachelor of science or a bachelor of arts degree in education. Only the bachelor of science degree has been available to education majors at KSU for nearly 50 years. Dr. Clayton Schindler, dean of the College of Education, said that the details of new programs will not be finalized with the other colleges of the University until probably the Winter Quarter. The revision of KSU's policy on teacher-certification was generated by a recommendation at the close of the las...
Social Reform Needed Before Latin America Can Prosper [Newspaper Article] — Kent State University Summer News — 18 August 1964
Social Reform Needed Before Latin America Can Prosper Social reform with the emphasis on education is needed before Latin America can develop its economies and political systems, Dr. Arthur M. Schlesinger, Jr., told a KSU audience Saturday. The former Presidential aide told an overflow crowd that foreign aid without reforms only enriches those in power and perpetuates the social structure that is causing some of the problems in Latin America. More than 200 students, faculty members and Kent residents were turned away as a standing room only crowd jammed Lecture Hall B, Bowman Hall, to hear Schlesinger. His talk, "Latin America: Danger or Destiny," was sponsored by the University's Summer Artists Series in cooperation with KSU's Latin American Studies Program. Schlesinger said that Latin America, where literacy varies between 25 and 80 per cent, has four routes open in its quest to enter the 20th century world. One would be communism, another nationalism of the type Peron practiced i...
Another KSU First Closed Circuit Television Playing Major Role in Orientation of Incoming Students [Newspaper Article] — Kent State University Summer News — 18 August 1964
Another KSU First Closed Circuit Television Playing Major Role in Orientation of Incoming Students Closed circuit television is playing a major part in KSU's PreCollege Conference Program now underway on the campus.

'Dial M for Murder' Keeping Audience on Edge of Chairs [Newspaper Article] — Kent State University Summer News — 18 August 1964
'Dial M for Murder' Keeping Audience on Edge of Chairs Dial M for Murder may not technically qualify as a who-done-it, but the current KSU Summer Theatre production does keep members of the audience on the edge of their chairs. The play by Frederick Knott makes clear from almost the beginning the identity of the villains and the details of the proposed murder. But surprises and twists are added until the final curtain to maintain suspense. What liabilities exist in the KSU production are due more to the structure of the play than the local presentation itself. The first act starts out slowly as situations and characters are established. There are too many scenes, and the wait between them can seem overly long. But still the play does have that quality of suspense that made it a hit on the London and Broadway stages and a choice for a successful Alfred Hitchcock movie. There is, too, a handsome clever villain who invokes in the audience a deep desire to see him get his. In the curren...
$38,400 to KSU For Nuclear Study [Newspaper Article] — Kent State University Summer News — 18 August 1964
$38,400 to KSU For Nuclear Study The National Science Foundation (NSF) has awarded a $38,400 grant to Kent State University for continued research on the interaction of nuclear particles in solids, it was announced Friday. Physicists James W. McGrath and A. A. Silvidi head the research team working on the project, which is providing more knowledge about the structure of solids. "When we began in 1957, the research was concerned mainly with the size and orientation of the water molecule in solid hydrates, which include such compounds as gypsum," Dr. McGrath notes. "During the past two years, we have been studying the motion of the water molecule within the solid and the means by which energy introduced within the solid is distributed." The project was supported by the Air Force Office of Scientific Research prior to aid from the NSF. Two graduate students working toward their doctor of philosophy degrees in chemical physics are assisting Dr. McGrath and Dr. Silvidi. They are David Ko...
