New Era [Newspaper Article] — The Kent Stater — 9 October 1939
New Era Again, Kent State students have affirmed their desire for good assembly entertainment. The full house and attention given the last assembly speaker were indicators of a new era in student assemblies. Kent students want outstanding speakers. They like to hear good music. There is much talent in our school. Perhaps, this can be used. The glee club that visited the school last year was enthusiastically received. Those in charge of assemblies have a good start. The students are in the mood for good assemblies. It is up to the committees in charge to keep them that way.—CP —K—
This Is Life [Newspaper Article] — The Kent Stater — 9 October 1939
This Is Life For the most part, university men and women are told they are preparing for life. But, the society of a university is the society of real living. It has its rules and code. This society is vital and binding. Those that advise university students in this way should also emphasize the reality and value of our present life. This is not only preparation for living. It IS living.—CP
New Professor Goes Hollywood [Newspaper Article] — The Kent Stater — 9 October 1939
New Professor Goes Hollywood Blonde Bette Davis and handsome Errol Flynn, co-starred in "The Lady and the Knight," a film being previewed in Hollywood, are reading the lines of Thomas Marshall Stowe Blair, newest instructor in the English department at Kent State university, whose play, written on the same subject material is on publishers presses now. Blair probably uncovered the subject material for his play, while studying the "UnhappyF'avorite" by John Banks, London author of 1682, and while writing his master's thesis for English, "John Galsworthy's Principles of Art." The 37-year-old isntructor, is entitled to the slight English accent that is part of his speech for he has spent a large part of his life ip. England and much time traveling in Europe. Father of two children, Blair is a graduate of the University of Pittsburgh where he took graduate work in 1925, adding the M. A. to his name. Through the Michaelmas term, September 1925 to January '26, Blair was a student at King'...

Cease Firing [Newspaper Article] — The Kent Stater — 9 October 1939
Cease Firing By Bob Seese TOEING THE LINE Sitting midst piles of mangled copy paper cigarette stubs and all that bosh reputed as natural environment for aspirant columnists . . . racking undernourished brains for news and whose who . . . suddenly realized I was flat broke (not that it is an uncommon feeling) ... I then marveled how important cracker companies are to economizing joecolleges and was just ready to reach for a crispy when, lo and behold, noticed two teensey fleas socializing on top of the cracker box . . . put me in mind of these sorority gals during rushing season '. . . suddenly one began to run back and forth across the said box as if struck with convulsions ... the less active flea suddenly yelled to his companion "Why are ya carrying on so, bud." The second flea new model of Jesse Owen, retorted "It says here on the box to tear along the dotted line, dosn't it." * *&lt; * WHITE HOPE—WE HOPE Campus rumors have it that Kent is the proud possessor of a new whi...
Silence Prevails On Sorority Front [Newspaper Article] — The Kent Stater — 9 October 1939
Silence Prevails On Sorority Front By Virginia Fredericks Rushees on Tenterhooks " 'Twas the night that bids went out, And all over the campus Not a creature was stirring Not even a rushee." (very blank verse). * * This morning at 8 o'clock, greeks and rushees began their great grim silence period. Sorority girls have that hunted furtive look as they look through their rushees. The rushees look sort of bewildered. After three weeks of intensive rushing and friendliness, no one will speak to them. It certainly is a queer world. Tomorrow afternoon at 5, both groups will breathe more easily. Rushees will have taken the final step toward becoming sorority members. Actives can start getting some studying done and life will be much more peaceful.
Rushees ... [Newspaper Article] — The Kent Stater — 9 October 1939
Rushees ... Up to now, college life has been pretty wonderful. These sorority girls certainly are nice to one. They help you on with your wraps, light your cigarettes, tell you how pretty you look and what a stunning outfit that is and won't you please come down to the house with me (or the Brady, or most any other place). Gee, it really makes you feel at home. Those girls really must have a lot of altruism in them. Bosh!! In freshman orientation courses, there have been vague rumblings of a silence period, but that was the day we were so busy talking about that smooth fellow that sits next to you in biology lecture. Yesterday was a pretty nice day, those sorority girls were friendlier than usual, sure is a great world. This morning!!! What has happened? Those girls who complimented you and took you places and had you to their rush parties. What's the matter with them? Have you done something out of the way? Why, they won't even speak to you. No fooling, this morning as you were wal...
Greeks ... [Newspaper Article] — The Kent Stater — 9 October 1939
Greeks ... Don't speak to any rushees, don't speak to any rushees. Please don ! t let me slip and speak to any rushees. So runs the creed and prayer of the sorority girl as the annual silence period starts. They hope that all the rushees understand why they are snubbing them these two days . . . after all the attention the rushees have been getting, it must be an awful let down not to have any of the sorority girls speak to them —not even smile. They're too nervous and excited to do much studying so why not go to the Brady. Better fix up a little in case some of our rushees are in there. Still have to make a good impression, they don't take bids out until tomorrow. Back to the back booth, the view of the whole Brady is much better there. Hey, look! —There's a rushee. Gosh kids, don't all turn around and look at once. She'll know we're looking at her. Don't smile at her, that's as bad as speaking, you dope. Oh, how I wish this thing Was over, I've got to settle down and get some stud...

Some Say [Newspaper Article] — The Kent Stater — 9 October 1939
Some Say By Nat Floersheimer Have just returned from the XMK house warming and believe me'it was a plenty nim house to varm. There were bedrooms on ooth the first and second floors, each occupied by three fellows. Two rooms which particularily fascinated me were the trophy rooms and Kreighbaum's domain. The latter was once a kitchen, turned into sleeping quarters it does have all the comforts of home . . . and then a couple of signs. The trophy room contains plaques, animal pelts, drawing by Petty and Merritt Wolff. Max Connar, Leonard Hill and Joe Price were pledged by the DELTA PHI SIGMA fraternity. Bob Orpin recently composed a new frat song and is working with eight of his brothers to form a special chorus. If Winchell, and Weitzel and Hanson can do it, why, oh why can't I ... To my secretary, the invisible man, Dear Invi . . . Note that no sororities are mentioned today. You remember the Dean said, "QUIET." Also please sa/ hello to all the GAMMAS and tell them my mother won't a...
BETWEEN the GOAL POSTS [Newspaper Article] — The Kent Stater — 9 October 1939
BETWEEN the GOAL POSTS By George Fleischer Who says that Heidelberg is a jinx? Yes, it did look, like the old jinx still held when the Princes were on Kent's one yard line early in the first quarter, not more than five minutes after the crowd was clamoring for a Kent touchdown with the Flashes less than a yard from the invaders' goal. It really seemed like Kent was destined for the bad breaks when they fumbled on Heidelberg's onefoot line in the opening minutes of the initial period. But things took on a rosier color when the Flashes managed to bring the pigskin back to mid-field after successfully defending their own goal against a strong bid by the Heidelberg eleven. Perhaps the KSU band men have some good reason for not yelling with the cheerleaders. Take a hint cheerleaders — supply a few new yells once in a while and the band won't have to yell "Zim Zam Zee." One piece of evidence shows, that the Kent ends were under the punts with time to spare as Heidelberg was held to a tota...

Women's Sports Review [Newspaper Article] — The Kent Stater — 9 October 1939
Women's Sports Review By Lindy Barch In the past, most of the sportminded women at Kent have been members of the women's athletic association. This year that organization is introducing a program of recreational activities which will offer every girl on the campus an opportunity to participate in some sport. The town of Kent has been divided jnto eight zones. Girls living within these zones will be members of certain teams and will compete as such. For example, women living on University drive live in zone two. Those interested in sports in this territory should elect a manager and arrange with her to participate in the sports program. The most outstanding feature of this program is the Participation Cup to be presented to the organization or group of girls within a zone which earns the highest number of participation points during the year. Organizations include sororities, dormitories and women belonging to groups such as the Wesley foundation and the Newman club. Special arrangem...
Coach Starrett Possesses Highly Touted Record [Newspaper Article] — The Kent Stater — 9 October 1939
Coach Starrett Possesses Highly Touted Record Starrett, John. Born Iroquois City, South Dakota, 1903. Graduated from Heidelberg college, 1928. Baseball coach, freshman coach and football coach. Such might be the wording of a Kent State "Who's Who" volume, concerning the above-named individual. However, those familiar with him know how inadequately that describes him. Popularly known as "Rabbit," due to his love for hunting, Starrett has already become a vital part of the KSU athletic department. After graduation from Tiffin Jr. Order high school, where he participated in football, basketball and baseball, he entered Heidelberg college. He hung up a great record in his sophomore year at Heidelberg. Playing in the left-halfback post, he established a record that unofficially still stands in Ohio Conference circles. He was on the throwing end of five completed passes for touchdowns in one half of a regulation conference game. This brilliant athletic career was nipped in the bud, howeve...
