Play Review Sees Slav As Highli [Newspaper Article] — The Kent Stater — 2 February 1940
Play Review Sees Slav As Highli By Stew Fern There probably isn't any question but what the high school boys and girls Saturday will enjoy the bits of "Beggar on Horseback" which will be presented for them — provided they are given the right bits. It is a shame that such lovely slapstick couldn't be relieved by a little acting during those rare moments when acting was required to make the Kaufman-Connelly play worth its royalty. It was difficult to know when the nightmare began and when it stopped —if it did. There seemed to be no question about the audience's reaction to either the fine work of six butlers (Vacariu made a vain effort, and his column needs all he can spare), or the interpolation of the registration card, though most will agree that there was plenty of nightmare without it. Whether its clever use was deliberate or not I couldn't say, but of its success, Mr. Stopher, please note!) Relief from slam-bang was evidently intended by Mr. Kaufman and Mr. Connelly in lines he...

Shortage [Newspaper Article] — The Kent Stater — 2 February 1940
Shortage "|&gt;ECI;NT figures show that there is at the present time a marked shortage of elementary teachers. This is true at Kent State, and many other institutions. The reason is obvious. The state department of education raised the standards for elementary teachers to include a four year college education. As a result of this, young women entering a university decide that if they must complete four years of work for elementary work, they might as well register in a four year high school curriculum. As a result, placement bureaus report the scarcity of elementary teachers. This should be called to the attention of freshmen and the condition remedied. It is suggested that college freshmen be given a chance to know something of the opportunities the various courses offer. This might be done in several different ways.—CP. —K—
Free Entertainment [Newspaper Article] — The Kent Stater — 2 February 1940
Free Entertainment •pVERY Monday night in Wills gym the HPE department sponsors independent intramural basketball games, which, although lacking the finesse of varsity athletics, more than make up for that deficiency with a fervor that comes only with the life and breath of athletes, "the will to win." Six to nine games are played, all three courts being used at the same time. No admission is charged for these games, but attendance has been meager. A suggestion for entertainment on Blue Monday is therefore presented—Go to Wills gym any Monday evening at 8 and watch three hours of fast independent basketball. —MD —K—
Why So High? [Newspaper Article] — The Kent Stater — 2 February 1940
Why So High? fPHE high cost of textbooks has been a pet gripe of KSU students for years, but since comparison has shown the cost of books here about the same as the prevailing rates at all colleges, there is probably nothing that can be done about it. However, one situation has caused much comment by students. Textbooks at expensive rates are required for a course, and students purchase them with the thought in mind that they will be able to sell them at the end of the year, thereby considerably reducing their expenses for books. After taking good care of their texts for a year, the students then discover they can't sell them, as the textbooks required for the course has been changed. This seriously impairs the budgets of many students, and creates a real problem. We realize the majority of the faculty is really concerned over this situation, but couldn't the textbooks be more carefully chosen, with more consideration given their possible "length of life?"—MD
Again Mr. Death Takes A Holiday; Talks About War [Newspaper Article] — The Kent Stater — 2 February 1940
Again Mr. Death Takes A Holiday; Talks About War By Alan Sophrin Death walks and talks. At first I did not recognize the man who had tapped me on the shoulder. His appearance would not have distinguished him from any other man in the crowd. His features were ordinary. He was of average height and average build, just like a thousand other men whom I had walked past that day. It was only when I examined him more closely, only when I looked into his eyes, that I saw this ordinary appearance was really a disguise. I saw that this was no ordinary mortal man; I saw that this man in disguise was Death. * * • He motioned for me to follow and I did, for some reason, unafraid. He led me to a small uncrowded restaurant. We sat down in a secluded booth; he ordered for both of us, and the meals were brought. He dismissed the waitress and began to talk. • • • "Young man, I see that you, as do /many others, look at me with hate and fear in your eyes. You hate me and fear me because of my position ...
SOME Seese Firing ... [Newspaper Article] — The Kent Stater — 2 February 1940
SOME Seese Firing ... Some stamp them as chiselers; some say they're spongers; while still others claim they're just human parasites that haven't molded. But all agree there are plenty, if not too many, who like ta get something for nothing. • • « Whether it is by coincidence or because of worthy facts, the college student has often been subject to.punning by the "outer world" people. Men in business circles, cartoonists, among others, joke about collegiate chiselers who graduate with the theory that they have the "world by the tail." mm* say they're just lazy, pulpit orators cite them as examples of the devil's work and John Lewis doesn't say. "That's why," prospective employers shout, "we don't want a college loafer." • m m Ai .he college man must take the job without aha .-decent chance to block or jab back.
