The Jeering Section [Newspaper Article] — The Kent Stater — 19 January 1940
The Jeering Section By John Mine Took a stroll down to the Administration building today. Seems as if it is now time to start registering again, and as I pushed my way through the crowd of students waiting to get even the slightest peep at the coming semester's program, I spied one dejected looking fellow slouched in the corner where the model of the campus stands. He was wearing a freshman cap, too, strange as it seems. Not being able to reach the bulletin board so I could decide on what classes I would select to submit to the university board of censors, I stepped up to the dejected one and to make conversation said, "Say fella, isn't it quite drafty sitting there on the floor? Seems to me you could find a better place to catch up on your 'lounge lizarding' than the floor of the Administration building." Registration Too Much Raising his head, which had drooped down, chin resting on his chest, he opened first one eye and" then .the other, opened his parched lips as if to speak, an...

This and That [Newspaper Article] — The Kent Stater — 19 January 1940
This and That ' The biggest gripe on campus these days is "why aren't there any class schedules around." Students must stand in a mob around the bulletin board outside of the registrar's office and try to figure out their schedule of classes for next semester. One bright sophomore suggests that some one should get a deficiency for this because he received three deficiencies for class work and no one was inconvenienced. I One hundred and fifty-seven yehrs ago tomorrow the Revolutionary War ended officially as Franklin, Adams and Jay signed the treaty with England, but few students probably realize that January 20 is not just another day. Today we would be at war if we were still a possession of England. Joke of the week - - - The cow said to the chicken, "Let's get together and have an eggnog."

"Perhaps those times are the only hours during which work-stu-j dents can make it to the/ library) and I can see no reason why they! should be excluded from information which they wish to utilize in the library," was the way one student expressed himself.
