Officials Study Job Opportunity Aid for Youth A three-week training institute for officials of Ohio's new Youth Opportunity Centers will be held here June 28 through July 18, under the direction of Dr. Lawrence Litwack, associate professor of education. Scheduled to attend are those who will supervise the centers.

The centers, which will be operated by the state Bureau of Employment Security, are designed to aid the thousands of youths unable to find jobs because they lack the necessary education or training. The total of such youths has been increasing steadily because automation is eliminating more and more jobs which require only minimum skils. Officials say the large number of school dropouts, the increasing crime and delinquency rates and the numerous selective service rejections are part of the overall problem.

Bid Approval Asked For New Structures [Newspaper Article] — Kent State University Summer News — 24 June 1965
Bid Approval Asked For New Structures When trustees of the University meet July 12, Business Manager Emil Berg will ask them to approve lowest bids for two new campus buildings. Funds for the $2.9 million chemistry building, first of several units in a new science complex, and the $1.4 applied science and fine arts building, to house the Department of Architecture and School of Journalism, were appropriated by the Ohio legislature in its 1963 session. "It is hoped that both buildings will be completed by the fall of 1966," Mr. Berg said, "but the present shortage of contractors' manpower is a problem." The construction is part of the University's $ll2 million, nineyear capital improvements program, in anticipation of campus student body growth from the present 13,000 to 24,000 or more by 1974.

Elfner Delues Into Aid for Lost Hearing [Newspaper Article] — Kent State University Summer News — 24 June 1965
Elfner Delues Into Aid for Lost Hearing Dr. Lloyd E. Elfner of the psychology department has started research designed to help improve teaching of the hard of hearing. He is conducting two projects under grants totaling $40,000 from the National Institutes of Health and the National Science Foundation. A primary objective of one project, he said, is to show the importance of "interaction between visual and auditory cues that are used in teaching the hard of hearing." Dr. Elfner went on to explain that "it has been shown that a person's ability to locate the source visually is impaired when an auditory cue is distorted. "For instance, if a person hears a sound louder in one ear, the source of the sound will be distorted. It will appear to be coming from a place closer to the ear in which the sound is intensified. "We want to find out if the reverse is true, if the distortion of visual cues can affect a person's ability to locate the source of sounds through his hearing. "If so, this ...

Vietnam Stunts Friendship Hope of U.S., Hungary--Nagy Former Hungarian Premier Ference Nagy told students and visitors here last Thursday that the conflict in Vietnam has halted efforts to improve relations between the United States and Hungary. Nagy, a top official of the last freely - elected government in Hungary, made the statement during a two-day lecture engagement in Bowman Hall, in connection with the Institute on Understanding the Communist Challenge. The Institute, co-sponsored by the University's Soviet Area Studies Committee and the Cleveland Bar Association, opened June 21 and will end July 25. "Since the involvement of the United States in Vietnam," Nagy said, "all negotiations aimed at improving relations between Hungary and the United States have been halted because of pressure from Russia." He said Hungary is still controlled by the Soviet Union, which does not want to be accused of "fraternizing" with an enemy of Red China while the war is continuing. Nagy added, h...

A Kent from Kent At Kent in Kent! Mrs. Lorrainne Kent of Kent, Washington, is at Kent State University in Kent, Ohio, for six weeks to participate in the NDEA summer reading institute.

I've already had one returned because I put "Kent, Washington,' on the return and 'Kent, Ohio' for the address. The situation could be worse. Mrs. Kent says she used to live on Washington Ave. in Kent — Washington, that is. "Everyone at home kidded me about coming here. They said this was one place I would be accepted.
