1500 Students Select Books In Recent Poll [Newspaper Article] — The Kent Stater — 4 October 1939

1500 Students Select Books In Recent Poll Students greatly prefer books of fiction and humor, it was shown in a recent poll taken of 1500 KSU students. Poetry, the arts, and scientific material ran far behind, as 480 students expressed a preference for fiction and 450 preferred humorous works. Fiction dealing with adventure was the most popular selection, followed by books of mystery and romance. Present-day authors were shown to be far more popular than writers of the past. The contemporary writers received 615 votes against 237 for older authors. It was also learned that students depend largely upon libraries to supply their reading material, only a small majority buying books. The popular notion that students limit reading to "best sellers" are mistaken. The pole showed a wide field of selections. The most popular book was shown to be "Gone With the Wind," but it only received 70 votes, while the remaining 1400 odd votes were spread over a field including about 450 different book...

Council Plans Migration To Reserve Grid Game [Newspaper Article] — The Kent Stater — 4 October 1939

Council Plans Migration To Reserve Grid Game Initial plans for the annual migration, were laid down at the Monday council meeting following long discussion which terminated only after Dr. K. C. Leebrick, university president, was summoned to help find a solution for their problem. It was pointed out when discussion began that plans for a trip to the Mt. Union game would give time for ample prepara- 'tions. The suggestion of a migration to the Hobart game was deemed inadvisable, leaving only the Western Reserve and Baldwin-Wallace games for consideration. Administration approval had to be gained by council to hold the migration, and Dr. Leebrick appeared before the council and gave his sanction on setting up a committee to investigate ways and means of going to the game. Earlier in the day Dr. Leebrick had stated that a trainride with the necessary transfer by bus was not advisable, but he favored using busses for the entire trip, from the campus to League park in Cleveland.

Bonfire Features Large Pep Rally Burning a Heidelberg football player in effigy by the freshman class, will bring to a high point the attempt to create added school spirit, if present plans by cheerleaders George Grahame and Milan Piotrowski are realized.

Biology Professor Narrowly Escapes War Perils [Newspaper Article] — The Kent Stater — 4 October 1939

Biology Professor Narrowly Escapes War Perils Dr. Constantine J. Alexopoulus, professor of biology, took a keen interest in the subject of current history during the summer, for it nearly caused the postponement of his marriage to Miss Juliet Dowdy and the prevention of his return to his work at the university. The biologist, on leave from the department last year, came close to conscription in the Greek army twice before his return. He went to Greece in August, 1938, to set up a department of plantpathology in the Institute of Chemistry and Agriculture at Piraeus, Greece. The Institute was founded in 1935 and they are enlarging their research work on chemicals which pertain to farming. During his stay in Greece, he traveled over the entire country to set up stations and give advice to the farmers. On one of his journeys he came within a mile and a half of the former Albanian border, where the Greeks had 150,000 troops stationed since the Italian occupancy. He says that Greece has e...

Active Student Government [Newspaper Article] — The Kent Stater — 4 October 1939

Active Student Government Student councils are supposed to represent student government. Yet, on our campus, the student has little to do with it, and hears less about it. Student governing bodies can do much because of their influential position in a university. Student councils are the best means of expressing student opinions. They are here for a purpose. There are many places where the student council can do a great deal of good. General conduct on the campus is a big responsibility of the student council. They should supervise or direct all activities. The work that the Kent student council has done is fine. But, they have not done enough. Perhaps, those who are active members belong to other organizations that usurp their valuable time. If this is so, they should not be allowed to serve on this important group. It is an all-absorbing job. It is a trusted duty. Student governing bodies are dent government. They are the regulators of dent government. They are the regulators of s...

Lets Cheer Louder [Newspaper Article] — The Kent Stater — 4 October 1939

Lets Cheer Louder Kent State needs a lesson in cheering. Those who braved the rain Saturday to watch the game were honest boosters of our team. That is apparent. But they didn't show how much they know about cheering, or how much they can cheer. The team deserves a boost when it is fighting hard. The fans can contribute much to the spirit of the team. They need loud and vigorous cheering. Everyone can learn the Kent State yells and cheers from their blue handbooks. High school rooting sections really make noise. Even a university can pick up a few points from them.—CP —K—

Indifference [Newspaper Article] — The Kent Stater — 4 October 1939

Indifference Student opinion on the marriage lecture of Will Durant has been indifferent. Kent State students should care what kind of entertainment they get. What is more they sould appreciate a worth while lecture when it is pointed out to them. The cadets of West Point enjoyed the lecture and received enough from it to warrant its second return. They liked it and did something about it. Do Kent State students want information of this nature by a man who has written much and evaluated great philosophies?—CP

Letters to the Editor [Newspaper Article] — The Kent Stater — 4 October 1939

Letters to the Editor Editor: In the September 27 Kent Stater a letter appeared speaking of the "exorbitant" textbook price. Perhaps the following facts as supplied by the National Association of College Bookstores will explain some of the questions. Please understand that they apply only to college bookstores and not to off-campus stores. Whether our bookstore belongs to the N. A. C. B. or not does not matter. The same holds true in all college stores. "The selling price of every textbook is established by the publisher of the book. A college store has nothing whatever to say when the price of a textbook is established. This store has never knowlingly sold a book above the list price established by the publisher. The prices you pay for books at this store are publisher's list prices or less. The discount a college store receives from the list price is unusually small when compared with that offered in other lines of merchandise. In spite of this small discount allowed, the store mu...

Inside Out [Newspaper Article] — The Kent Stater — 4 October 1939

Inside Out by Stew Fern TRADITION Two youthful instructors from Kent State were attending an official gathering of midwestern collegiate faculties at one of our prominent Ohio universities. The two instructors, at the reception of the president of this university introduced themselves as "Mr. So-and-so and Mr. Such-and-such of Kent State, the fastest growing university in the country." The president smiled inwardly, As he related the incident to some of his faculty, it was. evident he was impressed—unfavorably. No one would disagree with the statement that such a claim is not {tradition. Tradition is not something advertised. It is intangible. It cannot be established overnight nor in a half-dozen years. Tradition is not a simple custom, though customs may be traditional. - Tradition is defined in its larger -j sense as "something handed down from the past; an inherited culture or attitude." It is perhaps paradoxical to saiy that tradition must create and advance. But, it must , not...
