Editor’s Round-up [Newspaper Article] — Daily Kent Stater — 6 February 1953
Editor’s Round-up Joe College had a lot on his mind this week. It all started when President Eisenhower made his State of the Union address on Monday. True, the president’s new policy stunned many various age groups in the nation but it struck home most with Joe. Maybe it was the sounding of the death-knell for Communism in the Far East but maybe it was the starting of all-out war with the inevitable “we regret to inform you—” missives. Joe didn’t know for sure whether Ike’s message was good or bad but it did set him thinking about the role he would play in the subsequent action. He read with a concerned eye the announcement “Students being graduated in June or September must file application for graduation ...” It’s all happening so fast. A diploma, a degree but what then ? Or worse yet, would he even make it to graduation before being called away to serve his country? The Big Day, the one he’d skimped and saved for to make possible, might be rendered impossible by a blast of a gre...
Bill Charles, Disc Jockey [Newspaper Article] — Daily Kent Stater — 6 February 1953
Bill Charles, Disc Jockey By Shirley Wright Not passing a radio audition | doesn’t necessarily mean the end of a career in front of the mike. In fact, it was just the spark needed to touch off radio-speech major Bill Charles’ interest in a radio career. In the fall quarter of 1949, Bill, then a freshman from Lakewood, Ohio, auditioned for an announcing job on WKSU. He failed the audition miserably. More determined than ever to find a place for himself on the staff, Bill went back to WKSU to see what other positions needed to be filled at the station. He started working on the writing staff and by spring quarter of that year was head of it. From this Bill went on to become special events director, chief announcer, and occasionally a play-by-play man at basketball games. Now a senior, Charles is program director at WKSU and has his own disc-jockey show over WHKK, Akron, on Saturday afternoons. On this program he tries to give his listeners a variety of the top records in the popular f...
Letters To The Editor [Newspaper Article] — Daily Kent Stater — 6 February 1953
Letters To The Editor Dear Editor: One year ago the Independent Student party was reactivated here on the Kent State campus. This party was established in order to gain recognition for the independent student in Council, Men’s union, and other student government positions. It was believed that an active independent organization would aid student government in any functions it attempted to carry out. The above factors would have been brought about through the independent students interest in his Independent party which in turn would extend this interest into the student government. Other students would show their interest by voting. &lt; In the past year several elections have been held with the Independents winning several positions in student government. Now eighteen members of the Independent Party have decided to combin in the next election with another political party. Is this minority decision fair to the over two thousand five-hundred independent x students why they ar...
'The World Of Li’l Abner’ Reviews Capp’s Top Strips [Newspaper Article] — Daily Kent Stater — 6 February 1953
'The World Of Li’l Abner’ Reviews Capp’s Top Strips By Tom Fitzpatrick (THE WORLD OF LI’L ABNER, by A1 Capp, introduction by John Steinbeck, foreword by Charles Chaplin 175 pp. New York; Ballantine Books. $.35.) Added to the collected works of Hemingway, Faulkner and Shakespeare, posterity has now been given a package edition of the works of A1 Capp. The book, called “The World of Li’l Abner” appeared across the nation last week, simultaneously in hard and soft cover editions. It contains an introduction by John Steinbeck that is worth the cost of the book by itself and a foreword by Charlie Chaplin. Mr. Chaplin is still the world’s best comedian. Although he is currently married to Eugene O’Neill’s daughter, he is no great shakes as a writer. Steinbeck refers to Capp as “very possibly the best writer in the world today.” In many respects most of us would have to agree. He is being read by more people than any other of his contemporary’s and as for the form of his art; well, the cav...
Goon Is Gone [Newspaper Article] — Daily Kent Stater — 6 February 1953
Goon Is Gone By Bruce Limpus Goon is dead. His life was short, and I will quote from his own text, “I soared to heights incomprehensible to human understanding, man.” He enjoyed a certain amount of popularity, but he couldn’t help feeling that a lot of it was borrowed from a once popular fad of jokes.” The death of this fad was an im portant factor in the death of Goon. I had noticed him waning of late. Worry had him down. His j health was poor. He had failed in ] getting his Goonology course ac-1 cepted by the school. To see defeat on his usually flipped countenance was heartbreaking. He watched charcoal grey take the place of fuschia and magenta. He watched the tab collar replace the traditional rolled collar. But it was the shock that Tex Beneke was playing at the Military Ball instead of Diz or Miles Davis that proved too much for him. Needless to say, Goon passed away on a very “cool” morning. His life was multicolored and happy. He had found recognition outside of the state, e...
Why Not Try Federal Aid For Post? [Newspaper Article] — Daily Kent Stater — 6 February 1953
Why Not Try Federal Aid For Post? By Tom Duke The response to the article I wrote last week on the necessity of a trained ground observer’s corps was very heartening to me because !_ of its sound thinking and statement of facts on why we need it. Then, too, it was the only response that was received. ’ I looked further into matters and I obtained a Federal pamphlet giving information on the financial side of »the establishment of a ground observer’s corps. Federal pamphlet Number 19, which establishes the Federal Civil Defense Commission, (printed December 22, 1952), says that any state that is attacked by a foreign nation, or any subdivision thereof, will receive the aid that is necessary for it to set up an organized group for the observance of aircraft. This fund will be administered up to and including one-hundred per cent of the total amount that it costs the State or subdivision to set up such a post. Kent is a political subdivision of (the State of Ohio. Therefore it would be...

APOLOGIES Yesterday the Stater ran a story on this page entitled “ ‘Mary Worth’ Goes To College; Unearths Typical Campus Characters” without credit to the author.

Applause to your ingenuity, Louie, that’s one sure way of getting a by-line.

Campus News Life 'N Times [Newspaper Article] — Daily Kent Stater — 6 February 1953
Campus News Life 'N Times The new teacher-training program at the University of Kansas City provides the courses needed for state certification to teach and l6ads to a Bachelor of Arts degree with a major in School and Society, according to Dean Norman N. Royall. He adds that the program also fits the professional needs of men and women looking toward an administrative career in education, “The profession of teaching today with its ever-widening range of activities offers young men and women a career of manifold advantages—in personal happiness, creative living, community service and financial stability,” Dr. Royall declared. “As the economy of the American home shifts to include the wife as part wage-earner, especially in the first years of establishing the home, a young woman, today more than ever, must consider a career when planning her future,” said Dr. Royall. “She must acquire her professional training without sacrificing the broad liberal arts background which is not only th...
