In the Editor's Mail [Newspaper Article] — The Kent Stater — 6 February 1940
In the Editor's Mail Dear Editor: SINCE the Stater is trying to enlighten the student body as to the status of education sororities on the campus, perhaps it would not be amiss for their side of the story to be heard. It seems that is the only way in which Kent Staters will get the clear picture of the situation. When the three national education sororities that went local last year decided to take the step they knew that it was just a chance that national socials would take their groups onto the Kent campus. They were willing to take the step then, but now that they see that their cause may be lost, those of us, we three national education sororities, who have been loyal to our pledge must give up our afilliations so that they may keep on hoping! What assurance is there that if we did give up our charters, whfch incidentally mean a great deal to us, that national socials would come on the campus. National socials cost a great deal more money than education sororities do. I doubt th...

KENT KAROUSAL [Newspaper Article] — The Kent Stater — 6 February 1940
KENT KAROUSAL By Bill Lloyd The Beggar on Horseback has loped off into history, but the fact remains, the play was a colossal flop from the average student's point, of view. Responsibility for tjhis does not lie with students who participated in. it, but rather with the selection of such a play in the first place. "Beggar on Horseback" was well directed, but completely beyond the scope of the ordinary college audience and the facilities here for such a production. Therefore, all the work of the director and cast was nil. this was true of "Ethan Frome," which also had too many changes of scenery. * •&gt; * We have, in Kent State university, a few students who are capable of enjoying such a play as either of the two mentioned above. But for the every day, run df the mine constituency, of which most of us are members, "Ethan Frome," and "Beggar on Horseback" are far too high and mighty. Unless one has read the play previously, in the case of these two, he doesn't know what is g...

Things Were Sure Different Here, 'Way Back in 1919 A.D. [Newspaper Article] — The Kent Stater — 6 February 1940
Things Were Sure Different Here, 'Way Back in 1919 A .D. By Bill Lloyd Long, long ago, when many of the trees on our fair campus were practically sproutlets, before coy co-eds cut capers in knee length stockings, back when the Martins and the Coys, well, once this university was a far cry from its present status. In those days, you could come to college. for a few weeks in the spring, and walk out qualified to teach little children the rudiments of 'readin, 'ritin, and 'rithmetic. Football players were few and far between, and it was not unusual to have a faculty face or two in the line-up. Many changes have taken place, since and during those fitful twenties, in fact, today the contrast is almost unbelievable. Consequent changes have all been in favor of the fairer sex, however. In about 1920 the girls out-weighed, or rather outnumbered the men by a score of 281 to 47. Dancing was popular but not practical and all tripping of the light fantastic was done within its walls. Greeks Or...

Dad—Send Some Cash So I Can Bury Horse--Joe [Newspaper Article] — The Kent Stater — 6 February 1940
Dad—Send Some Cash So I Can Bury Horse--Joe By Jean Thrig •College-students seem to be so consistently broke that one wire seVvice-is considering making a form wire reading: "Am destitute. Please send—" However, a fewt students prefer less blunt methods. One gay young man from an eastern college became famous for his resoucefulness in extorting money from the parental pocket. He explained to his father that he had joined the Reserve Officers' Training corps and had to have a horse. The proud but gullible papa sent a nice tidy sum which; provided not only for the horse but also for stable rent and feed bills. But money so easily acquired is more easily spent, and the poor lad was again faced with the prospect of living within his allowance. Naturally this could not be thought of, so the horse became very ill. Veterinary services are expensive and this horse had a very delicate constitution. During four years the nag managed to develop every disease known to the animal world. All went...
Literary Tastes KSU Frosh Are- Analyzed [Newspaper Article] — The Kent Stater — 6 February 1940
Literary Tastes KSU Frosh Are- Analyzed "Freshmen Intellect," an article by 'Dr. Wilma L. Garnett and Prof. E. T. Griebling, is being published in the March edition of the College English journal. The article is an analysis of the present literary tastes of high school students and is based upon a research carried on by Dr. Garnett in the freshman classes of Kent State university of 1938 and 1939. 'Tf we had offered the same questionnaire to these students when they were a year farther along toward a degree the results would probably have been different," said Professor Griebling. This research attempts to show that present day literature is more interesting and pertains to college students more closely than some of the older literature forced upon grades students. The article states, "The weight of tradition was plain in the list of novels the students said they'd read. We made up a list of about 300 novels which we thought the students might read for one reason or another, and ima...

Kent Grapplers Top Ohio State Matmen [Newspaper Article] — The Kent Stater — 6 February 1940
Kent Grapplers Top Ohio State Matmen Flashes Claim Mythical State Championship as Result of Win Coach Joe Begala's wrestling team gave Ohio State's matmen their second setback of the season before a capacity crowd Saturday night at Columbus, 19-13 in a thrilling meet that saw the unusual happen when Fred Swasey was pinned with only one second left to go in his match. In winning their sixth meet, the Golden Flashes had a tougher time than the score l would indicate, and the result of the match would have been different, according to Begala, had not the Kent wrestlers taken the first three matches. Wilber and Weisenberg decisioned their men while "Tiger" Pomeroy pinned his. Papushak pinned Lightburn after the Bucks took the two previous matches from Fred Swasey and Cocaptain Lynn Sivon. Aschauer came back with a decision in the semifinal when he out-lasted Sawchyn in the 175-pound clash. The most interesting match of the evening was the heavyweight duel between Walt Porowski and Georg...
