Dr. Durant Views College, Immorality and Marriage [Newspaper Article] — The Kent Stater — 12 January 1940
Dr. Durant Views College, Immorality and Marriage College education is definitely of: value to the average person, if alone for the contacts that onb makes at college, Dr. Will Durant, renowned philosopher and author, stated Wednesday evening in an interview. Dr. Durant, who lectured later in the evening to more than 1,000 in the university auditorium on the marriage problem, modified his first statement by claiming that although college cannot give talent to anyone, it can develop that talent. He commended the impetousity of youth's burning desire to learn by asking questions, claiming that such persons are likely to succeed. "When I was in college, I didn't get the answers to my questions," Dr. Durant said, and continued, "instead, I was told I would find out when the time came." Immorality in the United States has not been increased by the depression, according to Dr. Durant, but he claims that the number of young folks who are economically able to marry has been reduced by "hard...

Campus Lights Improved Soon A lighting system covering the greater part of the campus is part of the building contract for the new science building, Dr. K. C. Leebrick, president of the university informed the Student council Monday.

According to President Leebrick, this money would come from student funds.

In the Editor's Mail [Newspaper Article] — The Kent Stater — 12 January 1940
In the Editor's Mail Dear Editor: WE art students are generally an easy going group of students. We don't gripe about small things like hydrogen sulphide gas from the chemistry department filling our art rooms in Kent hall during classes. We try to cooperate with the administration and use makeshift classrooms since we don't have an art building like other colleges and universities have. There is only one room on this campus that could be called an art studio, that is in the heating plant. Now, without notice, we have been bodily kicked out of that. After putting up with all the disadvantages during construction, and when we were beginning to be proud, of that, our only studio, we are evicted. It's not only the fact that we were kicked out that peeves us, we are willing to make room for progress, but the way in which we were put out gripes us. Our equipment was hastily packed and transported to the little gym where we now compete with scheduled gym classes. Some of the equipment was...

Mike Meditates On Campus Antics [Newspaper Article] — The Kent Stater — 12 January 1940
Mike Meditates On Campus Antics By Alan Sophrin * ' &lt;v •? ** ( '(Note:. The names used in the following are fictitious. Any similarity to actual persons, whether living or dead, is purely coincidental.) Dear Joe: * V * I have owed you a letter for a long time so I am writing this one to you. I got another job since I last saw you. It is working on a new building for a college in Kent, Ohio. It is a good job and we sure are putting up a fine building. The only thing that I have against this job is that I cannot understand these guys and girls that are going to the college for which we are building the building. They are nice people, I guess, only they are crazy. They are always griping about something. The other day I heard a black haired guy griping about the way that the girls fixed their hair and the way they wore their clothes. He was saying that some fellow Floyd sure had the right idea when he wrote in the Gaiter (that is the college newspaper, I guess) about the ter...
