Pros and Cons [Newspaper Article] — The Kent Stater — 6 February 1940
Pros and Cons By, Charles Magilone Divorce laws in the United States should be far more strict than they are at the present time, a poll of university students indicated. When asked, "Should divorce laws in the United States be more lenient or more strict than they are at the present time," approximately 70 per cent of the interviewees voiced their approval of stricter regulations in this matter. "Marriage would have a much more important air if these laws were more strict," said JOSEPH BLAIR, sophomore in the business administration college. "I think the laws should be tightened considerably." VERGIL SIEBERT, a senior, however, emphasized the fact that our divorce laws have been tightened, with still an increase in the number of divorces. "Our divorce laws have been made more stringent and still the number of divorces has increased," Seibert said. Other opinions expressed in the poll follow: DOROTHY DYSON, junior—"l think the divorce laws should be made more strict. It is plain to ...

Student Elementary Teachers Are Decreasing, Says Heer [Newspaper Article] — The Kent Stater — 6 February 1940
Student Elementary Teachers Are Decreasing, Says Heer Dr. Amos Heer, director of the training school, reports the fact that there are fewer elementary student teachers this year than there has been in the past 20 years. Dr. Heer gave as a reason for this decided decrease in the number, the fact that since the newly enacted four year law has been in effect, students have turned to high school teaching. He added that this condition might bring about a decided need for elementary teachers and a surplus of high school teachers.

Flashes Face Cats Tonight in Gym Conner Definitely Out; Boliantz Will Start Against Tough Cats Still smarting from the surprising loss to Fenn college, the Golden Flash court five will attempt to regain the form which carried them through early season games when they engage the annually powerful Western Reserve team in Wills gym tonight. Reserve will be top-heavy favorites but if the Flashes can find the spark that has been missing since the Mount Union game 'exactly a month ago the contest will be closer than many sports followers predict.

Joe Price, sophomore ace, well-known for his ball-handling and passing ability, may start but will see comparatively little action because of his bad ankle.

No Soap-box Orator [Newspaper Article] — The Kent Stater — 6 February 1940
No Soap-box Orator IYVER and over youth has been accused of radical thought and behavior. Gather any group of elde,rs together, and they usually end up bewailing the fact that "this younger generation is going to the dogs." And why? Criticism has been heaped upon students when the American Student union convention appraised communistic activity. It has been said that men and women from the ages of 1825 make up a majority of the Bund and communistic group memberships. Parents accuse their children of wild and unrestrained language in economic discussions. For these few examples supported by insufficient figures, youth is condemned. The 1940 younger generation is composed of a young man or woman who enthusiastically desires much from life, and is willing to give much. He or she expects no more than is rightfully due. After a student works hard in high school or college, he expects a job, security, and perhaps a home. But, when he knocks upon the portals of the world, he is told to "ge...
Untidy Rooms [Newspaper Article] — The Kent Stater — 6 February 1940
Untidy Rooms a department from one place to another brings much inconvenience. It presents several problems that must be solved, and this takes time. But, moving should not be an excuse for untidy rooms. Several rooms on the first floor of Merrill, which recently was vacated by the industrial arts department, are examples of what a classroom should not be. Boxes and papers are scattered about, chairs are overturned, and the general appearance is disagreeable. A classroom should be a clean place, to encourage clear thinking in a pleasant atmosphere. It is disconcerting to the professor to go to a room which has neither an instructor's chair nor a table. Can this be corrected.—CP —K— walk between the library and the music hall presents a "muggy" and hard journey to those who must use this beaten path. —K— "hoary" frost on the trees and the silverlike effect at night makes this campus a truly beautiful one.
