Looks Forward To Rest At 70, Alter 33 Yrs. [Newspaper Article] — The Kent Stater Summer Bulletin — 20 August 1954
Looks Forward To Rest At 70, Alter 33 Yrs. After 33 years, Miss Mittie Smith is bidding farewell to some of her favorite students, the summer school pupils. The senior nurse has seen many changes in the fast-growing university during the course of her long service, which is believed to be the longest term of service in the field of college health work. Led into nursing by a desire to 4 do useful work and a horse’s objections to automobiles. Miss Smith originally was a music teacher. She graduated from Scio Conservatory in 1904 and became a private teacher, traveling by horse. She attended George Washington University, Washington, D. C. and became night supervisor at the Episcopal Eye, Ear, Nose and Throat Hospital for six months. A classmate was leaving Kent Normal School and told her of the vacancy, and, wanting to return to her native Ohio, she applied. When “Mittie”, as she is known to thousands of students, came to Kent, she found a four room hospital in Moulton and fewer than 4...
Hub Juke-Box Earns Union $1800 A Year [Newspaper Article] — The Kent Stater Summer Bulletin — 20 August 1954
Hub Juke-Box Earns Union $1800 A Year The three tunes currently tops on the juke box hit parade, “The High and the Mighty”, “Money Bums a Hole in My Pocket”, and “Little Things Mean a Lot” are reflected in the Student Union coffers. The little nickel so painfully i parted with by the students add up to a healthy $l,BOO in the course of a year. Much of this, of course, went into the purchase of new records and expenses, for the Hub owns its own boxes. New records are added monthly, according to a poll considered more accurate than that conducted by the Hit Parade and advance records are often placed on the turntable. In general, these are popular with the students some time before they are accepted by the general public. Other popular tunes on campus are: “Hey, There”, “ShBoom”, “Cara Mia,” “Goodnight, Sweetheart,” “Joey,” “Three Coins in the Fountain,” and “Moonlight and Roses.” Students voted these tops and requested more Eartha Kitt, Bing Crosby, Billy May, and the McGuire Sisters...
'Wives' Whale Of Story [Newspaper Article] — The Kent Stater Summer Bulletin — 20 August 1954
'Wives' Whale Of Story While the men of New England went down to the sea in whaling ships, many of the wives went along; for honeymoons, bearing and raising their children, making quilts and raspberry jam in the midst of a great floating industry. Their long-neglected story i s told now in WHALING WIVES, by Emma Mayhew Whiting and Henry Beetle Hough. A whaling wife, Abigail Jernegan, was the first American woman to set foot on Japnese soil. The wives cheerfully accepted the bleak home address of “Pacific Ocean”, and met storms, cannibals and mutiny with no more fuss than a blueberry pie to be made. They made homes, and entertained whenever a familiar ship was “spoken”, in a space no larger than their pantries at home. The story of these courageous women is a new and highly entertaining side of America’s most adventurous industry. Their strange and often alarming life, told largely in their own words, makes fascinating reading.

Miss Liberty 68 Years Old [Newspaper Article] — The Kent Stater Summer Bulletin — 27 August 1954
Miss Liberty 68 Years Old The most famous lady in all the world—Miss Liberty in New York Harbor—is 68 years old this October, and in excellent health and spirits. President Grover Cleveland dedicated the statue Oct. 28, 1886. It was the inspiration of the Alsatian sculptor Bartholdi who, after visiting the United States in 1871, returned to France to begin work on its design. His mother served as model; contributions amounting to $250,000 in small sums came from French men, women and children. The statue was shipped to New York in sections and reassembled. Safest day of the week to drive, says the American Automobile Association, is Tuesday; un-safest, Saturday.

No Parkee Or Ticked [Newspaper Article] — The Kent Stater Summer Bulletin — 27 August 1954
No Parkee Or Ticked It’s the end of another summer and we all have pleasant memories. There are pleasant memories for us, too, but one incident has left an unpleasant taste in our mouths. The Kent city council seems to be intent on making it hard for students to find a parking place. More streets have either been put completely off-limits for parking or have been changed to two-hour limit areas. There aren’t many places left that a car can be parked for a few minutes without fear that a ticket will be placed on it. The University facilities are more than adequate for the student with a car, with the huge stadium parking-lot always able to hold more cars —and it is only a five minute walk to any building on campus —but it is necessary for places to be provided for off-campus parking. The students who live in off-campus houses need a spot to park their flivvers overnight. They are not allowed to park their cars on the campus overnight, and for good reason. The police simply cannot kee...

Man’s Six Mistakes The Roman philosopher and statesman, Cicero, said it 2,000 years ago, and it’s still true today. The six mistakes of man are: 1. The delusion that individual advancement is made by crushing others: 2. The tendency to worry about things that cannot be changed or corrected; 3. Insisting that a thing is impossible because we cannot accomplish it; 4. Refusing to set aside trivial preferences; 5. Neglecting development and refinement of the mind,. and not acquiring the habit of reading and study; 6. Attempting to compel other persons to believe and live as we do.
More Of U. S. Goes Up Each Year – In Flames [Newspaper Article] — The Kent Stater Summer Bulletin — 27 August 1954
More Of U. S. Goes Up Each Year - In Flames The National Board of Fire Underwriters has reported that estimated fire losses in the United States for the first six months of 1954 amounted to $455,990,000, an increase of 5.5 per cent over those of $432,081,000 for the corresponding period last year. Compared with 1944, when for the first six months of that year amounted to $214,052,000, the present year’s six-month losses represent a sharp but understandable increase. ■ As explained by the National the increase is the result of many contributing factors at work in the nation’s economy, particularly mounting production and greater values exposed to fire, and the growing incidence of big industrial fires, which in one instance a year ago last July easily tipped the fire loss scale and sent 1953’s total of losses to $864,863,000—$50 million or 6.1 per cent above those of $815,134,000 for 1952. Regardless of these things, today's fire losses, high as they are, could be much worse were it ...
Remind Vets Of Deadlines [Newspaper Article] — The Kent Stater Summer Bulletin — 27 August 1954
Remind Vets Of Deadlines In the last minute flurry of Congress’s adjournment, two bills affecting vets were passed and later signed into law by the President. According to an associated press report, the GI Bill for Korean Vets is extended. The President signed into law a bill extending by a year the time within which a Korean War Veteran may start and complete a course of training under the GI bill of rights. This same legislation also extends to July 25, 1960, the time within which some disabled WWII vets may complete delayed rehabilitation training under the Vocational Rehabilitation Act. Also on the statute books is a one-year extension of direct loans to veterans. For this bill $150,000,000 has been set aside. Rep. Ayres of this congressional district authored the bill. The law extends for one year veterans housing loans issued directly by the U. S. in areas where federally guaranteed loans by private lenders are unavailable.
Super Speeds, 'A’ Weapons Make Air Defense A Must [Newspaper Article] — The Kent Stater Summer Bulletin — 27 August 1954
Super Speeds, 'A’ Weapons Make Air Defense A Must With a warning that modern bombers can fly from Moscow to Washington in just 439 minutes and to this area in less than that time, the American Legion’s National Security Division says that the United States must have a clearly defined, consistent National Air Policy if it is to survive in today’s age of supersonic speeds and atomic weapons. Such a policy must have the en- ( dorsement of the legislative, executive and military branches of government according to the Legion. In an illustrated booklet, “Air Power in an Age of Peril”, just published as part of its air education program, the veterans organization apraises the requirements for achieving and maintaining American air power—second to none. Arthur J. Connell, National Com- mander, said that in publishing the booklet the Legion has attempted to “create in the minds of all Americans an awareness that air power is no longer merely important, it is imperative.” The study lists fou...
Vets Laws Extended [Newspaper Article] — The Kent Stater Summer Bulletin — 27 August 1954
Vets Laws Extended Korean Vets here on campus have two deadlines to think about at present. One has to do with signing their certificates of training in order to receive their subsistance. The other is the announcement of a new cutoff date for application for dental care. The VA office on campus asks that all summer school vets who are under public law 550 to make sure they sign their certificates during next week,' Failure to do so will cause a delay in receiving checks. The new dental care cut off date has been extended to Dec. 31, 1954, or one year after discharge, whichever comes later. It will cover dental work which is service caused only. There will be a one-call limit for this dental work.
