World-Wide Scientists Will Convene at Kent In Buffalo, a team of medical researchers is using liquid crystals to measure the size of cancer tumors. In Paris, French biophysicists at the Pasteur Institute are studying how cholesterol is held in systems akin to the blood system. At the University of North Carolina, a medical scientist is probing the possible connection between liquid crystals and the aging process. They all are among 47 scientists from the United States, Europe and Asia, who will report their findings at an international Liquid Crystals Conference August 16-20 at Kent State.

Charges Public Schools Fail To Upgrade Reading Tastes [Newspaper Article] — Kent State University Summer News — 29 July 1965
Charges Public Schools Fail To Upgrade Reading Tastes Public schools today not only fail to teach many children to read well, but also fail to develop the taste and judgment they will need in later life. That is the opinion of Dr. Roma Gans, professor emeritus of Columbia University's Teachers College, who spoke at the conclusion of the Summer Reading Institute. "No magazine is cheap enough or tawdry enough" not to sell to the reading public, Dr. Gans said. Teachers, she added, are being short-sighted if they ignore their responsibility to upgrade the reading selectivity of their students. Dr. Gans also criticized today's educational systems for ignoring the student who ha? fallen behind his grade level in reading ability. The so-called school dropouts are often "squeezed out by a system which ignores them instead of helping them," she added. Dr. Gans said educators must probe for better ways to teach reading skills, so that all adults will be able to read "the press, magazines, and...
Add 104 Frosh In Honor Plan [Newspaper Article] — Kent State University Summer News — 29 July 1965
Add 104 Frosh In Honor Plan The University has invited 104 new freshmen to participate in its Honors Program beginning in the fall.

The program provides potentially superior students with more concentrated study. Course material is covered in greater depth than average classes and the emphasis is on individual initiative. Kent's program is recognized as one of the three best among state universities in the country. Currently 18 different KSU departments offer special honors courses.
Tots, Adults Use Speech-Hearing Clinic [Newspaper Article] — Kent State University Summer News — 29 July 1965
Tots, Adults Use Speech-Hearing Clinic Twenty years ago the University's Speech and Hearing Clinic opened in modest quarters on the third floor of Kent Hall, with six speech pathology and audiology majors and eight graduate students. Prof. John R. Montgomery started the clinic and is still its director, as well as chairman of the division of "speech P. and A." But today there are 265 undergraduate majors and 63 graduate students in the division. And instead of the crowded, humble suite of 1945 in Kent Hall, shared with the radio, rhetoric and public address divisions, the clinic has the most modern facilities obtainable in the new, air-conditioned Music and Speech Center. The clinic's services match its facilities. It performs both group and individual therapy, after careful diagnosis. There is a set fee for its services, "dependent upon what is done," according to Dr. Montgomery. All new and transfer students at the University and in the 13 academic centers are tested at the clinic...

Curtis, Cast Successful In Putting Play Across [Newspaper Article] — Kent State University Summer News — 29 July 1965
Curtis, Cast Successful In Putting Play Across Prof. Earle E. Curtis and his University Summer Theatre '65 cast admirably deliver the many messages of "Man for All Seasons." The Robert Bolt historical drama, based on the conflict between Sir Thomas More, lord chancellor of England, and King Henry VIII over the latter's desire for a divorce, will continue at 8:30 nightly through Saturday in E. Turner Stump Theatre. Much older and more experienced actors would be challenged by the heavily philosophical play. It epitomizes the multiple characters or "seasons" present in man, from the conscientious Thomas More (who was canon- ized by the Roman Catholic Church in 1935), to the bribeaccepting Richard Rich, from the mischievous Common Man to the unconscionable Thomas Cromwell. Undisputed star of the production is Tony Walsh as More. He manages to look, as well as act, the part, which is long and demanding, and is so convincing the last time he is to see his wife that he manages to bring a ...

Urges Stepped-Up Defense Against Reds in Caribbean [Newspaper Article] — Kent State University Summer News — 29 July 1965
Urges Stepped-Up Defense Against Reds in Caribbean Possibility of Communist take-overs in the Caribbean area is "not an imaginary threat but a very real one," according to an expert on Latin America who spoke here last week. Daniel James, correspondent for the Latin American Times in Mexico City and author of five books on the area, lectured in the University's Latin American Studies program. James warned that Communist propaganda, broadcast from Radio Havana in Cuba, is heard extensively in such countries as the Dominican Republic and Haiti. He charged that previous administrations in Washington have not been alert enough to developments, and the "penetration and virtual occupation of Cuba by Moscow" was a failure of both the Eisenhower and Kennedy administrations." Discussing President Johnson's swift action in the Dominican Republic conflict, James said the President was "paying closer attention to an area which had been sorely neglected in recent years."
