Flashes Fail to Catch Fenn's 'Big Red Foxes,' Lose Game 34-32 Despite Last Half Scoring Spree [Newspaper Article] — The Kent Stater — 6 February 1940
Flashes Fail to Catch Fenn's 'Big Red Foxes,' Lose Game 34-32 Despite Last Half Scoring Spree Fenn college's big red Foxes built up a 23 to 13 half-time lead over Kent's Golden Flashes Saturday night in Wills gym, then chanted, "Nyaa, nyaa, ya can't catch me." The sly foxes were almost wrong, however, as Kent staged a long uphill fight to tie the score and go ahead, 32 to 31, with four minutes game time remaining, but a foul and field goal by foxy Bill Bunce clinched the game for Fenn, and the biggest local upset of the year was history, as the score board read, Fenn 34, Kent 32. The Flashes failed to score a field goal until minutes had elapsed, and Fenn held a 13 to 6 advantage at the end of the first quarter. A pair of long shots by Conner and Griffith made the score 13 to 10, but the Foxes spurted to a 23 to 13 lead at half time. A pair of field goals by Joe Prjce and a long shot by Wayne Griffith knotted the score for the first time, 29 to 29, shortly after the fourth quarter b...
Injured Knee May Keep Conner From Court for Season [Newspaper Article] — The Kent Stater — 6 February 1940
Injured Knee May Keep Conner From Court for Season Max Conner, veteran eager, may be lost to the team for the rest, of the season it was learned today. Conner received a leg injury in a fall during the Fenn-Kent game Saturday night. He will be out of tonight's game with Reserve. It was not known today whether the injury on the knee was a torn cartilage or just a severe bruise, but if it is a severed cartilage, he will be out of the lineup for the rest of the year. Max, a junior, has been a mainstay of the Flashes since the season began. He was recalled to the team last year when Paul "Ducky" Hazen was forced to undergo an operation for appendicitis. He is among the leaders in total points scored to date, as welP as one of the better defensive players on the squad. May Be Out for Season

Women's Sports Review [Newspaper Article] — The Kent Stater — 6 February 1940
Women's Sports Review By Lindy Barch BULLETIN Word from the gym gives us information that the Engleman hall lassies succeeded in trimming the Lowry freshmen -19-11. Bertha Heichel led the scoring with 11 points. * * * The Women's Athletic association is sponsoring the first open basketball tournament to be played at this university. By open, is meant that players are not required to be members of the WAA, but are asked only to register with the team to which they belong. The first round of games was played yesterday in the gym. Although the Stater went to press too early to print the final scores we venture to say that of those teams scheduled to play, the Engleman hall team looked pretty good. Some of that team's stars include Captain Joanne Borofka, Jackie Miller, Heights high school graduate, and Jane Hand. Betts Ackley and Dot McClelland head the Theta Sigs, and Engleman boasts of such fine athletes as Bertha Heichel, basketball manager; Delia Harms, Hazel Kelly, and Corky Porea...

'Haunted' House Home of Texas A & M Students [Newspaper Article] — The Kent Stater — 7 February 1940
'Haunted' House Home of Texas A &amp; M Students Cheap Education Theme of Unique Housing Organization COLLEGE STATION, TEXAS— (ACP) —Twelve young men happened upon a "haunted" house and a friend and the result is that 1,000 young men are attending college here on 82 cents a day. Everything is included—even tuition and clothing. The 1,000 students attend Agricultural and Mechanical College of Texas and are members of a student co-operative housing project, largest organization of its kind in the United States. This housing project was begun during the depression ye&amp;rs when many boys were not able to finance their educations either by themselves or with their parent's aid. Today, the room and board of the average student of Texas A and M costs him $29.75 a month, or about one dollar a day. Twelve youths and Daniel Russell, professor of rural sociology, had been working on the student's financial problems. They found their answer in a haunted house, a large two-stor...

Late Flash Rally Whips Reserve, 40-36 [Newspaper Article] — The Kent Stater — 7 February 1940
Late Flash Rally Whips Reserve, 40-36 Conner Sees Mates Thump 'Tough' Cats PRICE, ANDREAS SHINE Fans Stunned as Team Returns From Fenn Loss to Rout Clevelanders Kent's Golden Flash court five continued to confound the experts by staging a strong last half attack after trailing by one point at half-time to overcome the powerful Western Reserve Red Cats 40-36 last night in Wills gym before 1600 fans. The cats were heavy favorites to win after Kent's unexpected loss to Fenn three nights ago. Kent was playing without the services of Max Conner, veteran guard, injured in the Fenn tussle. Last Half Rally The Flashes found their stride for the first time in a month and played good ball. Strengthening in the last half, Kent outscored Reserve 22-17 in that period to more than make up for the one point half-time deficit. Reserve started fast and scored six points on a bewildered home team. However, two baskets by Dan Gulgin, one by Wayne Griffith and one by Harold Andreas knotted the score at...
A Gripe With Vain© [Newspaper Article] — The Kent Stater — 7 February 1940
A Gripe With Vain© "pRIPERS" may be found anywhere in the world. They are defined as persons who continually critize existing conditions, and offer no solution for them. They are usually a pessimistic group who pride themselves on their alertness in finding fault with other persons, institutions, or conditions. Kent State has its share of "gripers." In fact, every department head, faculty committee and executive has been at the receptive end of a "griper." This, in no way, condemns the honest critic who seeks to bring better solutions. Good criticism has its place in the world. However, there is a place for merit, and there should be away to call it to the attention of others. For this ireason, it might be a good idea to have a department where anything that is well done might be called to the attention of the university at large. For instance, if a certain professor is doing a fine job of teaching his subject matter, report this, perhaps by an unsigned letter. Again, if the tumblin...
High School Day [Newspaper Article] — The Kent Stater — 7 February 1940
High School Day J JESS than 1000 high school students visited the university campus Saturday on High School day. This must have been a disappointment to university officials for 2000 students were expected to attend from Northeastern Ohio high schools. The program was not adequate. Neither was the basketball game a headliner nor was there a swimming meet. The usual style show was absent. There should have been some form of entertainment for those who did not dance. Somewhere the publicity fell down. Invitations either were not sent to all schools in this section or they were sent to the wrong persons. There is a possibility that some high school officials did not release the invitation because they did not warrant the program satisfactory. High school day can and should attract 2000 students. The day for next year has been set, which enables officials to schedule a basketball team that will attract attention in the evening, and a swimming meet for the afternoon. There will be more t...
