Why Not? [Newspaper Article] — The Kent Stater — 22 September 1939
Why Not? To all upper classmen, the question of whether to observe proper dress regulations at dances is an ancient one. It's a very simple one, too. They simply wear what they want. But the freshman may not yet understand the problem. Tonight will be the first all-university dance. The administration has specified semiformal dress. In any other college this means that men come in dark business suits and women in semi-formal gowns. But last year at Kent it meant nothing at all. The administration hopes that this year it will be different. If students were attending any other social function they would observe their hostess' specifications. They would never appear at a formal party in street clothes. It would not be the courteous thing to do. So tonight it is hoped that students will put aside their personal preferences. The university is your hostess. Semi-formal dress is requested. That is what should be worn.
Freshmen Here and There [Newspaper Article] — The Kent Stater — 22 September 1939
Freshmen Here and There A thousand little freshmen (maybe many more) Stood in line all day and cried "My feet are getting sore." At every door there stood a guard (a very nasty guard) "You can't pass here," he'd say, "Without your little card." "Freshmen here" and "freshmen there'—'twas the order of the day And Mamma's precious darlings found Kent lift not all play. And when they'd stood in line enough (still so blythe and gay) Life's joys were ended —they had to stand in line and pay. How many freshies had to kiss the seal? The number isn't high But it made a lot of fun for those who were standing by. But the questions that a freshman asks and asks and asks And asks (there is no rhyme to the questions or this). As one freshman to another, we should remember that a freshman has other functions in life than asking questions, we hope. Of course, it is impossible to learn that 103 M is right next door to 104 M unless you ask someone. It isn't; it's across the corridor. Until one has su...
For My Own Pleasure [Newspaper Article] — The Kent Stater — 22 September 1939
For My Own Pleasure By Sam Fogg Tradition in any guise whatsoever has always been a fetish here at Kent and I believe we are safe in assuming that by now Prof. G. Hazel Swan's green crepe paper extravaganza held in Wills gym is a tradition. For years, for the ostensible purpose of getting themselves acquainted, freshmen have bedecked themselves in streamers of paper to portray with astonishing regularity, mock weddings and burlesque football games. In a truer sense, the affair allows the upper classmen the opportunity to ogle at, and smack their chops over, an assorted swarm of freshmen dollies. * *• * So it was that Monday evening I stood in the gymnasium balcony, leering in a mild manner at the freshmen females and hoping that in time I might filch an ice cream bar or two. As I was about to pronounce mental judgment on the class of 43 as being quite adolescent, my memory went back past a goodly span of semesters to an evening when I, in turn, was once a self-conscious, green-ribbo...

Rushing Season Gets Under Way With First Round Robin Party Sorority rushing will be in full swing starting with the round robin tea this Sunday.

Some Say [Newspaper Article] — The Kent Stater — 22 September 1939
Some Say By Nat Floersheimer I'm tired! You're undoubtedly tired! And, the Greeks are positively tired! Registration has worn the best of us out, but at the present moment that isn't what I'm referring to.

Powerful Line, Fast Backfield Give Starn Best Tearn in Decade [Newspaper Article] — The Kent Stater — 22 September 1939
Powerful Line, Fast Backfield Give Starn Best Tearn in Decade Porowski, Heichel Add Power to Forward Wall Lettermen Give Coaches Experience at Every Position; Eight Game Grid Schedule Opens With Lawrence Tech One of the stoutest and most formidable teams in the history of Kent State will march to the battle front when the Golden Flashes inaugurate their 1939 campaign, Saturday, Sept. 30, It is the consensus of the undergrads who have been watching the Flashes with interest that Starn's charges have "two-touchdowns" on at least five of their eight scheduled opponents. Forty-six men have answered head coach G. Donald Starn's call. Thirteen are lettermen which, with the exception of the end post, gives Starn a letterman for each position. Falcone, Sullivan Lost The more pessimistic of the early onlookers point out the loss of Kent's touchdown twins, Ernie Sullivan and Carm Falcone. If the coaches are worrying about this loss, it seems nullified when they grin and point out Walt Porowsk...
Wojno, Stewart Reject N. Carolina Athletic Offers [Newspaper Article] — The Kent Stater — 22 September 1939
Wojno, Stewart Reject N. Carolina Athletic Offers Their names are Roman Wojno and Dale Stewart. Both are built heavy for their height and they have the unique ability of swimming rings around their opponents. Wojno, as a freshman last year, gained national recogniti on through his terrific speed in the dashes. Setting pool records wherever he swam, he turned coaches' heads toward Kent State. When the coaches did put Kent on their lists they found Dale Stewart, who at that time was winning at almost free will. It was the prowess of this pair that caused the athletic department of North Carolina university to send them both athletic scholarships with all the trimmings. It so happened that both lads liked Kent State. Upon receiving the notices that they were eligible for scholarships it took them but a few minutes to decide that they would come back with Coach Ray Novotny who had given them their initial break.
