Registration Near Stopher ' s Record Mark The record breaking second semester enrollment of Kent State university edged a bit closer to Registrar E. C. Stopher's early week predictions as 32 more students were completely registered, bringing the total registration at 4 p. m. yesterday to 2386.

some say... [Newspaper Article] — The Kent Stater — 2 February 1940
some say... by Nat Floersheimer About the best story I've heard in quite a while concerns Paul Johnson and the 1924 Ford he had. Seems that this summer he drove to New York in the chariot and ar- | rived there intact. However, on the return trip through Ohio he was coasting down a hill which had a bridge at the bottom. On the way down he tried to turn the steering wheel but found to his amazement that the entire apparatus came off in his hands. "Here," he said to a friend sitting next to him, "you take it for awhile." What the friend answered is unprintable, but the text ran something to the effect that he wanted nothing to do with it. So Hero Johnson, put the steering wheel on ,the seat and set about to put the car in reverse. Acting as a good car should, it kicked up its wheels, spun them around furiously and sidled into the bridge with no /casualties. Speaking of kicking brings us back to the subject of examinations and from examinations to their grading. It seems that this semes...
