Friendliness Rates High In Crusade For Freedom [Newspaper Article] — Daily Kent Stater — 30 January 1953
Friendliness Rates High In Crusade For Freedom By Char Frolo The time to tell a man you are his friend is before he’s coming at you with a gun, emphasized Alexander Jordan in his Crusade for Freedom assembly address, Thursday. Jordan, from the Polish section &lt; of Radio Free Europe, underlined the need for American dollars to help radio fight world Communism. Funds were obtained by donations in the election of the University's first Freedom’s Girl, Becky Merrill. She was elected on a penny-a-vote basis. The campaign was conducted by Chi Pi, men’s journalism honorary. Since ballot box stuffing was encouraged, over 3,000 votes were cast. Freedom-grams were also distributed for donations. The money raised by the Crusade will be used to support radio stations in Germany and Portugal which broadcast programs to people behind the iron curtain, telling them that they haven’t been forgotten. Since preaching would seem impertinent coming from people living in free countries, the pr...

Editor’s Round-up [Newspaper Article] — Daily Kent Stater — 30 January 1953
Editor’s Round-up This was “Give - To - A - Worthy Cause” Week on campus. Although campaigns were launched and completed in lightning-like fashion none of them failed in their mission of benefiting humanity in general and the students of Kent in particular. Religious emphasis week represented the “give” spiritually. Accent on religion, carried on by conscientious students giving their time to flock into the seminars, was an attempt to find themselves through God. Rev, Charles V. Ireland directed the On Campus Retreat plans for all Protestants and Jews. Under the direction of Rev. William C. Chapman, Catholics took part in daily Mass, Holy Communion, and recitation of the Holy Rosary. The University board of trustees did a little giving too; in this case the on-campus women were those who will gain. The board authorized President Bowman to proceed with plans and drawings for the new $2,000,000 women’s dormitory. More and better housing accommodations might assure a higher coed enroll...
Heads High [Newspaper Article] — Daily Kent Stater — 30 January 1953
Heads High Although the Golden Flashes have not won many basketball games they have won thev admiration of the student body. In the face of almost phenomenally adverse luck, they have stuck together and played with their hearts as well as with their hands. There is no substitute for gameness and ability to fight even when the ship is slowly sinking. The Flashes have never given up, as has been evidenced in their many last-seconds defeats. This is almost a miraculous condition in light of past news of point- shavings and basketball scandal in other universities. In the current news, even a baseball magnate has been found guilty of unfair play. We are proud to say that at Kent, the team plays for the game and not for the gain! The important thing is that, although we have been guilty of losing games, we have never been guilty of unsportsmanlike conduct, cheating, or laying down on the job. We would rather stand by our record, insignificant as it may be, with heads high, than use under...
Gone With Goon [Newspaper Article] — Daily Kent Stater — 30 January 1953
Gone With Goon By Goon Limpus Say man . . . maybe some of you cats been spadin’ the dillusion that I’m one of these fags that put down a liberal education . . . but man I dig, kept to a minimum of course, but man I dig. This fact struck me like a bolt of white lightning a few twenty-fours ago when I was shaking a cat of which I had not made the acquaintance of for quite some time. Man was this cat slow. He couldn’t even under-' stand English, man it was too much. We were jawing about those mellowed magenta days when he interrogated me as to what happened to old Jake what used to blow some cool tubs. I reiterated sadly that old Jake was deceased. “Deceased!” says he. “Man, is it serious?” This cat thought I meant that old Jake had bugs. “No, man,” says I. “Jake’s dead.” “That bad,” says he. “Must have been tuberculosis, or cancer or some- thing.” By this time I was frothing at the mouth and ripping up the turf with my writhing toes. Man I feel if one can’t learn hisself the English l...
Campus Bombed? A Possibility [Newspaper Article] — Daily Kent Stater — 30 January 1953
Campus Bombed? A Possibility By “Spook” It’s January 30, 1953. One-hundred monstrous, black planes are lined up on the runway of the aggressor. The death-laden planes carry an insignia whose predominant color is red. 1 The props on the planes spin' crazily, and in a few moments the planes are air borne. The planes set a great-circle course for the United States, straight over the North Pole. In a little less than eight hours they are over various industrial and cultural centers of the United States. One of these centers, which has been picked beforehand, happens to be a state university located in Kent, Ohio. The pre-destined plane releases its cargo and the Kent State campus goes up in a puff of smoke. Gone is the Administration building. Gone is Merrill hall. Gone forever is the Brady and the Hub. All fantasy? Not according to a recent meeting of the Federal Civil Defense Committee for the State of Ohio held recently in Cleveland. According to the big-wigs at this meeting, Russia ...
Flu’s Who [Newspaper Article] — Daily Kent Stater — 30 January 1953
Flu’s Who Throat sore? Temperature rising? Ache all over? Man, you’ve got it. The flu, that is! The infirmary is really getting the business. They have all the patients they can handle, and some they can’t handle. At least you’re in good company. Many famous people both here and abroad are afflicted with this horrible malady. The list of dignitaries includes the Pope, the President (followed by Secret Service men), Joe Fabits, Professor J. Henry Buzak, and Algernon Swillbeard Shortfellow. Let’s look at the manner in which the infamous flu virus attacks the unsuspecting student. An average day of the student is a good example. He rises in the morning after three long, glorious hours of sleep. He still feels the 18 quarts of beer that he consumed the night before, but can’t figure why. His usual capacity is much higher. Throwing on his natty charcoal slacks, charcoal sweater, charcoal shirt and charcoal suede shoes, (could it be just dirt?), he runs to the Brady, gulps a cup of coffee...
