Pino, Cunningham Have New Coaching Positions Two additions to the University's coaching staff have been announced by Dr. Carl E. Erickson, director of athletics. Santo Pino, last year's freshman Assistant has been elevated to head freshman coach, and Kenneth G. Cunningham has been appointed graduate assistant in basketball for the 1965-66 season.

Add Seats, KSU Stadium To Be Biggest in Mid-Am [Newspaper Article] — Kent State University Summer News — 15 July 1965
Add Seats, KSU Stadium To Be Biggest in Mid-Am Kent State will have the largest stadium in the MidAmerican Conference in the fall. Chester A. Williams, athletic business manager, has announced that seating capacity at Memorial Stadium will be increased to 20,000 before football season opens. Williams cited record attendance in 1964 and indications that season ticket sales this year will be the heaviest in KSU history. He said the new seats will be semi-permanent bleachers with steel foundations and are being added on an interim basis. Plans now are being finalized for a new stadium with upwards of 40,000 seats, due for completion sometime between 1968 and 1970. Last year the football Flashes attracted an average increase of 4,500 fans per game over 1963, while playing their first season under the dynamic direction of Leo Strang. Williams revealed this big jump was achieved in only four home dates as compared to five the year before. What's more, he pointed out, Kent's 1964 percentag...
Envisions new Role for KSU [Newspaper Article] — Kent State University Summer News — 22 July 1965
Envisions new Role for KSU EDITOR'S NOTE: This is the first of two articles growing out of an interview with KSU President Robert I. White. The second will deal with the changing complexion of the student body. Kent State is gaining momentum in its drive to play a unique role among universities in northern Ohio. And it will complement, not compete with, other developing institutions. President Robert I. White made these comments in an interview this week. Although he appears relaxed as he sits, pipe in hand, and speaks in a low-voiced, deliberate manner, he constantly reflects his enthusiasm for the University and its future. Five facets of the hoped-for role for KSU were developed by the president: 1. The concept of a largely residential campus with an increased proportion of upper division years and graduate work. 2. Efforts toward a distinctive campus atmosphere. 3. Efforts to meet cultural and esthetic needs. 4. Expanded graduate programs. 5. Development of areas pinpointing the...
University Gets Leaf 'Sweepers' [Newspaper Article] — Kent State University Summer News — 22 July 1965
University Gets Leaf 'Sweepers' Newest additions to Kent State's maintenance department are two $1,500 "vacuum cleaners" purchased to rake up leaves. According to Emil Berg, University business manager, the machines are truck-like devices which roll along the ground and pulverize the leaves. "The purchase was necessary because in the past it has taken thousands of man hours to rake up leaves," Berg said. "While the University has more acreage now, we still have the same number of maintenance employees."

Fresh Water Aim Of Science Team With the nation's fresh water supply diminishing through drought and pollution, Kent State is forming an Institute for Fresh Water Studies to help combat the problem. The new agency, headed by Chemist Jay E. Taylor, will coordinate efforts by campus scientists in several areas, including chemistry, geology and biological sciences. "The contamination of our water resources is a serious and growing concern. A variety of different approaches must be used in order to determine the most suitable methods of attack," says Dr. Taylor. "Within the institute, we hope to apply existing methods as well as develop new approaches to this extremely important and timely problem." Dr. Taylor, along with Chemist Waldo Semon, plans to concen- trate on such methods as oxygenation, chemical treatment, high temperature, high pressure and photochemical techniques to reduce or eliminate pollution and to attempt to develop usable products from materials now considered as wast...

'Man for All Seasons' Begins Ten-Day Run The largest cyclorama curtain in the U.S. and the largest set ever constructed at KSU are being used in the third play of the University Theatre's summer series, "A Man for All Seasons," which opened last night in E. Turner Stump Theatre. The show, directed by Prof. Earle E. Curtis, will continue tonight through Saturday and July 26-31. Curtain time is 8:30 p.m. This is the first area production of the play. Coming directly from Broadway, the drama is the story of Sir Thomas More in his last years as Lord Chancellor of England, during the reign of Henry VIII.

The play, by Robert Bolt, won the New York Drama Critics' Circle Award. Thirty-six feet high, the new sky drop curtain is used as a backing for the six separate parts of the set. Members of the cast are Tony Walsh as Sir Thomas More; Robert...
Brazil Ex-Chief Meets Press, Chides U.S. in Speech [Newspaper Article] — Kent State University Summer News — 22 July 1965
Brazil Ex-Chief Meets Press, Chides U.S. in Speech Representatives of news media tried to pin down Juscelino Kubitschek, former chief executive of Brazil, to some criticism of the present military government which has forced him into "voluntary" exile. He adroitly hedged through his interpreter, Gerald Scharfman. Using such phrases as "the president doesn't discuss this kind of details," and"it would be beneath him to render an opinion that would lower Brazil or attack the government in power," it later came out that "such criticism would reflect on friends and family in Brazil." Kubitschek and his wife now have an apartment in Paris. His two married daughters and their families are still in Brazil. It became evident that fear of reprisal held his tongue. On other subjects at the press conference in • Cleveland, sponsored by the University, Kubitschek was loquacious. Intermittently his personal secretary, Jose Kaiserman, offered an opinion. The 62 - year - old former president, whos...

Describes Teacher of Slum Child [Newspaper Article] — Kent State University Summer News — 22 July 1965
Describes Teacher of Slum Child Successful teaching of slum children requires a unique kind of teacher as well as a unique program, an educator from Yeshiva University in New York said at Kent State in a recent lecture. "The breed of teacher successful in slum ghettoes is probably different from that of middleclass schools," declared Dr. Abraham Tannenbaum, associate dean of Yeshiva's graduate school of education. Dr. Tannenbaum, who is also chief of the education division of New York City's Mobilization for Youth Delinquency Control project, spoke as part of a series of special lectures sponsored by the College of Education. He said the slum child may benefit from a teacher who is something of a "ham" who has a "flair for the dramatic." Lower class youngsters are used to communication by motions and gestures rather than strict verbal ability, Dr. Tannenbaum said. He also called for a greater appreciation of the differences between various groups of underprivileged students. Too oft...

Student Traffic Court Judges Disputed Cases [Newspaper Article] — Kent State University Summer News — 22 July 1965
Student Traffic Court Judges Disputed Cases Three justices without robes rule on cases each Monday afternoon in Room 217, Merrill Hall. Rick Wright, senior, is chief justice of the Traffic Court, which is under jurisdiction of the Municipal Court in Ravenna. He has been on the panel a year. Associate justices are Jack Smith, sophomore, and Diane Lewis, senior, both new to their positions. The panel was assigned for the two summer terms only, after petitioning Student Senate, being interviewed, screened and appointed. The same procedure is carried out before each quarter that a student wishes to serve on the court, according to Wright. Traffic tickets which are not contested (more than 400 were issued during the first two weeks of the first summer term) are taken directly to the treasurer's office and the $2 fine paid. Those contesting their parking tickets may appear in court, explain why they wish to contest, then wait out in the hall while the panel decides the outcome of their ca...
