Mayor Clamps Down on Slots; Machines Vanish Harvey Swings Into Immediate Action As Stater Receives Quick Response To Its Demands on Gambling University student's money again jingled in their pockets instead of in the many hungry slot machines as Mayor W. I. Harvey late Tuesday ordered a general cleanup of all the onearmed bandits in the city. Although the punch boards and cigarette machines remain in many of the regular business establishments, all the nickle, dime and quarter machines which gobbled up student's finances, were either locked up or had disappeared from the stores, a survey last night revealed. City Officials Give Quick Action &lt; The immediate and thorough action of city officials was traced to Mayor Harvey, who late Monday when informed by the Kent Stater of wide open gambling, banned all slot machines by 6 p. m. that evening.

The Stater Editorially Notes [Newspaper Article] — The Kent Stater — 10 October 1939
The Stater Editorially Notes Friday's pep rally was well controlled. The cheerleaders and others tried to point out the dangerous spots as the snake dance went by. As it weaved its way up and down the streets, guides tried to Keep the line together. Then too, there was leadership on the football field. The cheers were well planned and opportune. The crowd cheered as the effigy of Heidelberg was tossed high into the flames. We liked the attitude of the townspeople toward the rally. In conversation with seceral, they especially noted that as far as they knew little or no damage was done. They enjoyed the rally. It made them realize that this is a university town. A large group of freshmen led by Mickey Dover were among the loudest cheerers. Many students felt it was one of the longest snake dances and that it held together nicely. The band deserves mention for the pep it brought the rally. ' One question grows with these notes, why not have another such rally soon?—CP —K—
"Cut" System [Newspaper Article] — The Kent Stater — 10 October 1939
"Cut" System "Cutting" classes is a problem on the Kent State campus. Some schools have a definite system providing for absences. Kent has no provision for them. If a student had a definite number of excused absences, he would try to use these only when necessary. Then, if he still needed or wanted to "cut" a class, a penalty would be just. As it is, a professor doesn't know whether he should severely punish the student who "cuts." This is true especially if the student gets his subject without regular attendance. It is true that if a student is interested sufficiently, he will attend classes. However, there are a few times when he would like to do something else, or when he feels he must "cut" a class. Provision should be made for this.— CP —K—
