Eternal Vigil [Newspaper Article] — Daily Kent Stater — 10 February 1953
Eternal Vigil Nope! You don’t have to be 21 years of age to vote today. This is Election day on campus and youngsters and oldsters alike have the opportunity to elect officers into the student government. Frosh and transfer students voting for the first time may feel that all a Student council does is stall, argue, and get headlines in the campus newspaper. Although this is the unfortunate case at some colleges and universities, it is not at Kent. Students of this campus government and of Student council, in particular, know differently. The Council here has had a bumpy time of it this year but just the same has admirably performed a number of campus chores. Some of them have dealt with dull, technical aspects of the community while others have been controversial enough to stir considerable student opinion. All have been alive, vital and essential to the interests of you, the voter. The Council can continue its eternal vigil only if it has competent people in it. Vote today for the ...
LETTERS TO EDITOR James, Ryan Ring The Bell As 'Pork Barrel’ Emcees [Newspaper Article] — Daily Kent Stater — 10 February 1953
LETTERS TO EDITOR James, Ryan Ring The Bell As 'Pork Barrel’ Emcees Editor, Kent Stater: OPEN LETTER TO A COUPLE OF SWELL ENTERTAINERS: I happen to be one member of the ’53 Pork Barrel audience who feels that there just wasn’t enough time to show ample appreciation to the two emcees who gave the Friday night half of the Barrel a good, wholesome, fast moving continuity—Dick James and Herb Ryan. Their antics were much appreciated by the older audience who, as a general rule, sits on chair-edge waiting for shady stories that draw a raucous but embarrassed laugh . . . they were appreciated by those who would just as soon see the skits when they are ready to be presented without half-hour breaks between . . . they were appreciated by the many younger-than-college kids in the audience who like to giggle at a couple of silly, nice guys . . . and by those who know that all the world loves a clown and who know a clown when they see one. With all due respect to “Meek and Man” (Gene Meckler an...
KENT KONFIDENTIAL [Newspaper Article] — Daily Kent Stater — 10 February 1953
KENT KONFIDENTIAL By Jim Butler This is the story of the underpaid professor. It is a story which has been battered and buffeted around educational circles for a long time. And there is just reason for doing so. In the January issue of the Kent Alumnus, a publication going to KSU grads, there are two articles which deal with the problem. One is from President George A. Bowman; the other, a story about faculty members quitting for higher paying jobs in other fields. President Bowman warned that low salaries of college professors are endangeing the future of education and the nation. “On the average today,” he he said, “the professor is 13 per cent less well off, before taxes, than he was in 1940, while the average American is 43 per Cent better off.” It seems to this corner that these facts speak poorly for the people who are responsible for professor’s salaries. It is a sad commentary, in the instance of state schools, on state legislators. They are neglecting the people whose job i...

KSU Seeks Revenge From Akron Tonight By Bill Barrett The Golden Flash cagers will go after their fifth win of the season at 8:15 tonight when they tangle with their ancient rivals, Akron U., in the MPE building. One of Kent’s 13 losses came at the hands of the high scoring Zips Akron, 81-73. In that contest the J2ips led all the way, paced by Bob Horvath who scored 28 points, mostly on long push-shots. Akron’s 6 ft. 8 in. center, Mel Kiser, marked up 18 points for the Zips’ wellbalanced attack. Lowell Shumaker led Kent in the last Akron encounter with 18 points. Percy Grenfell, although still feeling the effects of a badly sprained ankle, managed to get 16 points. Kent will be intact for to--night’s game. Akron has lost only two games this year, both on the road. Western Reserve outran the Zips to garner a 102-98 decision and a lastsecond shot enabled Mount Union to edge Akron 92-90. A win over the Zips would not begin to compensate for Kent’s poor season, but it would certainly giv...
