Whaddaya Know! Kent Favored To Win Western Reserve Hasn’t Won A Game Since Dec. 19 [Newspaper Article] — Daily Kent Stater — 30 January 1953
Whaddaya Know! Kent Favored To Win Western Reserve Hasn’t Won A Game Since Dec. 19 By Bud Ovington If Golden Flash basketball fans think Kent is due to win a game, they should take a look at the Western Reserve basketball record. The Red Cats haven’t won a game since Dec. 19, .1952. P Coach Bob Dewey’s basketballers, who face Kent Saturday night in the MPE building, have won three games this season while losing eight. Considering some of the tough breaks encountered by the Flashes, Kent should be favored to win Saturday’s game, but many people rate it as a toss-up. The Red Cats victory over Akron* university, 102-98, early in the season makes them feared every time they take the floor. Dick Howard, ' 6 ft., 6 in. sophomore center, dumped 38 pointers through the hoop that night to set an all time Reserve record, and he is liable to catch fire at any time during the season. Howard has totaled 210 points this season and leads his team in scoring. He poured in 28 markers during the last...

They have previously tripped Indiana State and Baldwin-Wallace, but lost to powerful Case. Coach Joe Begala and his men have high hopes of finishing the season in a blaze of glory.

Mermen Lose To Wooster [Newspaper Article] — Daily Kent Stater — 30 January 1953
Mermen Lose To Wooster Kent State lost its fourth straight swimming meet yesterday afternoon by losing to Wooster 51-33 in the MPE building. It was Kent’s fourth loss of the year as against two wins. Captain Eddie McVehil was once again Kent’s big gun. He remained undefeated in his specialty, fancy diving, by winning that event. McVehil also took second place in the medley relay. Kent’s only other firsts all came in the freestyle events. Bob Smith splashed, to victories in both the 50 and 100 yard freestyles while Joe Kempf took the 440. The meet was nip-and-tuck for first few events, but the Scots pulled away after the diving event. The most exciting race was the final event, the 440 yard relay. Even though the outcome of the meet was already determined, this race was neck-and-neck all the way with Wooster winning by a scant margin.

Wyoming University Ends 'Hell Weeks’ [Newspaper Article] — Daily Kent Stater — 30 January 1953
Wyoming University Ends 'Hell Weeks’ “Hell Week” has been officially abolished on the University of Wyoming campus. The trend to substitute worthwhile projects for organized “hell week” programs actually started several years ago on this campus, when several fraternities decided to put their pledges to work improving their chapter houses, repairing structures, or assisting with some community project. When the National Interfraternity council placed a ban on hazing and all forms of “hell week” practices last year, the office of the Dean of Men at Wyoming U. stated it supported the national edict. In a letter to all fraternity presidents. Dean of Men A. L. Keeney wrote in part: “Since the National Interfraternity conference has placed a ban on hazing in all forms of “hell week” practices I am going to ask that the chapters represented on this campus observe this ban and substitute for such activities whenever possible, the plan of “Greek Week” or something constructive such as redeco...

Study Of College Girls’ Spending Habits Reported Sample studies of actual student allowance spending at Stephens college over the past ten years reveal certain trends, according to a report by Mr. Arch Troelstrup, head of the Consumer Education department, Columbia, Mo. “Analyses of spending habits show certain patterns of spending.
