Enrollment Sets Summer Record [Newspaper Article] — Kent State University Summer News — 26 June 1958
Enrollment Sets Summer Record Enrollment for the first summer term is 3,954 students, a new University record. The figure is 500 above the estimated enrollment of Charles E. Atkinson, registrar, and surpasses the previous record of approximately 3500 students set in 1949. Atkinson said the enrollment probably received as assist from the recession and the income tax collector. Jobs are harder to find, he pointed out, and some teachers can deduct summer school expenses from income taxes. This year’s enrollment for the first session is 772 more than last year. Because of the gain in enrollment, Atkinson has revised his estimate of second term enrollment. He originally predicted a 2,000 registration figure for the second term. Usually the second term enrollment is about 60 per cent of the first term figure. On that basis, approximately 2400 students would be expected for the second term. The first summer term will close on July 19 and the second five-week session will begin July 21. Alt...

U.S. Must Win Intelligence Race---Lerner [Newspaper Article] — Kent State University Summer News — 3 July 1958
U.S. Must Win Intelligence Race---Lerner Dr. Max Lerner, speaking before a University audience of several hundred, said the U.S. must gear its educational efforts toward winning the intelligence race instead of the weapons race or even the science race. "We have almost forgotten the lesson of every great historic civilization—that life is a heroic encounter for the individual and for the civilization,” said Dr. Lerner. "If America goes down, it will be because of the inner rigidity of the civilization as a whole, and the inner slackness which our educational system has allowed and encouraged in individuals.” With respect to education, said Dr. Lerner, "ours is an age-of-slackness.” "We must find some way of releasing motivations in our young people to study and learn and think for themselves, other than through the current slogan of 'what’s in it for me?’ ” The widely-read author and Brandeis university professor said educators "should be directed not toward turning out a nation of ...
