Must Hold To Prisoner Of War Policy-Thomas [Newspaper Article] — Daily Kent Stater — 5 February 1953
Must Hold To Prisoner Of War Policy-Thomas The UN must stand fast on their prisoner-of-war policy if they are to retain their honor and prestige in the eyes of the world, according to Norman Thomas, Socialist author and lecturer who spoke in the University auditorium Tuesday night. Thomas, who spoke before 600' townspeople and students, stated “Communism has an appeal to Asians.” He explained that Asia’s turn to communism is a direct result of action by the West itself. In years past, “British and Dutch have been the ‘lmperial Masters’ ruling all of India and other Asian countries,” he said, “and Asia’s partial turn to Communism is their way of breaking former rule.” The six-time candidate for the presidency of the United States said that Asian people are not in favor of Communism but they are reverting to it because they think it is necessary to build up industrial power. Political friction in Asiatic countries, he said, is only one of many problems facing the West in their quest t...

The play will run from Feb. 9-17. Heading the cast of “Ghosts” are Marcia Hill as Mrs. Alving, and Jim Tushar as her son, Oswald.

No Tradition? Here’s Why [Newspaper Article] — Daily Kent Stater — 5 February 1953
No Tradition? Here’s Why Smelling week-end bus fumes is i a strong KSU tradition, even though : there are those who insist we aren’t 1 old enough to have any traditions. 1 i If anyone has ever wandered by i the Administration building some * i Friday afternoon, they have prob- ' i ably seen the huge troup of week- j i end commuters, who think that the 1 week has ended and there is nothing ! else to do on the campus. This is | i the horrible ghost of Kent’s tradi- i 1 tion. 1 1 This is where the week-ender is : wrong. The week, in actuality, is j only beginning as far as college life ; i is concerned. That is, college life at 1 other campuses. | t College life for some people at Kent is too mixed up to be a full ! experience. At other colleges study- i ing is done during the week and social life is indulged in on the week-ends. At Kent the two are necessarily so inter-changeable that it is hard to tell where one stops and the other begins. Therefore, neither studying nor social engag...
Health Class Cites Need For Ground Observer Corps [Newspaper Article] — Daily Kent Stater — 5 February 1953
Health Class Cites Need For Ground Observer Corps February 1, 1953 | Lowry Hall Kent, Ohio To the Editor of the Kent Stater: “The students of our health education class were extremely pleased to read the feature in Friday’s Kent Stater concerning Kent’s lack of civil defense organization. In class we have been discussing this problem and have been planning to write the Stater so that we can get a program started to remedy the situation. Establishing a ground observer corps here, which has been recommended to our class by Colonel Workman, would not necessarily prevent the University from being bombed because: (1) if the planes were close enough to be seen, there would be little time to do more than -yarn the campus, (2) the function of a ground observer corps is to inform by telephone the filter center in Canton which, in turn, plots the course of the unknown plane and relays its findings to a control center which up fighter interceptor groups (jet planes) to defend the area. This wh...
Two Girls From Rome Find All Roads Lead To Kent [Newspaper Article] — Daily Kent Stater — 5 February 1953
Two Girls From Rome Find All Roads Lead To Kent Rome to two “Romans” at KSU is decidedly different. Both Gayle Brown and Barbara Easter, freshmen, will say that her hometown is Rome. But Barbara would go on to tell about Rome, Italy, and Gayle about Rome, Ohio' Barbara pictures her hometown in Italy as a city of contrasts—modern and old, loud and quiet. On the other hand, Gayle comes from a typical small town having a filling station, two or three general stores, several houses, but no high school. For Barbara, a native of the U.S., Rome, Italy, which is her hometown now, is just one of many homes. She was born in Minneapolis, Minnesota, and has lived in Baltimore, New Orleans, and Washington, D. C. Her father, Stephen Easter, an employee of the United Nations, has worked in Rome the past year. He is an entomologist, studies insects; and specializes in grain storage. “At first, it was pretty rough in Rome. I had a hard time getting adjusted,” she admitted. “The people, the buildings...
'Mary Worth’ Goes To College; Unearths Typical Campus Characters [Newspaper Article] — Daily Kent Stater — 5 February 1953
'Mary Worth’ Goes To College; Unearths Typical Campus Characters With the publication of Gerald Brace’s “The Spire,” more than one critic noted that colleges are becoming popular as the backgrounds of novels, and replacing the war as the Setting for that sensitive first novel young novelists traditionally turn out. It is safe to say that not a very large segment of the American public will have its ideas of college formed in this way. To analyze one way ideas may be formed for many people, we must turn to “Mary Worth.” Mary is the kindly old heroine of Ken Allen’s kindly old comic strip. The picture of sorority life given in the strip is amazing. Among the girls is Libby Stone, a virulent snob. I like old Libby. In all that nauseous kindliness, she is a refreshing stinker. But, alas, I realize that in a few short months, Mary will reduce her to another quivering convert to kindly conformity. She will then be like the girl called Pappy, a goodygoody ingenue who wants to be a Pie-Oh s...
KENT KONFIDENTIAL [Newspaper Article] — Daily Kent Stater — 5 February 1953
KENT KONFIDENTIAL By Jim Butler Classes in this university may be put into several categories, such as, introductory, specialized, theoretical and practical. But we have come across one that should be in a class • all its own. It’s the course in “Investments” in the economics department. We term it an “executive” course. On the first day of class this quarter, Prof. H. W. Hudson, head of the economics department, presented each of his students with a “gift” of $200,000. Overwhelmed to say the least, the students then were told to invest half of it and to take the other half and speculate. There is nothing that causes ulcers faster than money tied up in speculative securities. Some funny situations arise in the stock and bond business too. One particular bond has as a mortgage all the main line railroad track between Boston and New York. That’s fine, but what in the world would someone do with all the main line track between Boston and Chicago. Can’t you just see him using it as his ...
Cagers Hope To Upset Broncos In Loop Tilt Here Tonight W. Michigan Favored To Top Flashes Again [Newspaper Article] — Daily Kent Stater — 5 February 1953
Cagers Hope To Upset Broncos In Loop Tilt Here Tonight W. Michigan Favored To Top Flashes Again By Bill Caddey B The Broncos of Western iVtichigan invade the MPE building tonight and the rejuvenated Golden Flashes will be going all out to tame them. According to statistics and season records Western Michigan appears as the definite favorite. They stopped the jFlashes 88-83 at Kalamazoo earlier in the season and boast an over-all record of eight wins and six losses. The locals have a 4-11 slate. The Kent men, however, played great ball as they broke out of a season-long losing slump last Saturday night. Nine men hit the scoring column in their 83-64 romp over Western Reserve. Western Michigan spilled Reserve 73-61 Tuesday night. The invaders from Michigan will take the floor with a well balanced ball club. Some are veterans of last year's squad that ruled as co-champions of the Mid-American conference. Ron Jackson, 6 ft. 6 in. pivot man, leads the Broncos in scoring with 193 points a...
the PRESS box Bevo Once Played At Kent [Newspaper Article] — Daily Kent Stater — 5 February 1953
the PRESS box Bevo Once Played At Kent Viva la Bevo! And 50 points a game to you, too, pal. A number of Kent State basketball enthusiasts are planning to attend the Kent State- Cincinnati basketball game in the Queen City Feb. 20, and they will also see the fabulous Bevo Francis, the nation’s high scoring ace. The Kent-Cincy game originally had been scheduled for the Cincinnati university men’s gym. But when Bevo and his j Rio Grande cagers were booked for a game with Cincinnati Bible seminary at the Cincinnati Gardens, the Kent- Cincy game was also moved there as a double header. It will be interesting to watch the great Bevo. We are wondering just how good he really is. We have heard both pro and con comments concerning his ability. Some think he would be terrific with any team. Others say he wouldn’t be nearly so tough if Rio Grande (pronounced Rye-O) played even the smaller schools in the Ohio conference such as Wooster, Mount Union, Wittenberg, etc. We admit Rio Grande plays pi...
