1952 Burr Among Top Five Books [Newspaper Article] — Daily Kent Stater — 22 October 1952
1952 Burr Among Top Five Books The 1952 edition of the Chestnut Burr was awarded a position among the first five yearbooks in collegiate competition last year. The National Scholastic Press association, which every year judges books from colleges throughout the country, gave the Burr 3110 points and signified that it was First Class. In the system there is one class above this, All-American. One yearbook in the country received this rating scoring 3400 points. The Burr lost points according to the critical survey, because of certain things which they felt had been omitted. The senior section was graded down because the activities of the students were not included with their photo and points were lost, in the estimation of the judges, because the pictures in the book did not portray significant situations or contain enough action. Another reason the Burr lost points was that it did not include pictures of the whole faculty, an essential in the judge’s estimation. Editor of the ’52 Ch...

Nelson Band Plays At Midweek Hop [Newspaper Article] — Daily Kent Stater — 22 October 1952
Nelson Band Plays At Midweek Hop By Char Frolo “Something new and bigger for the Mid-week dance.” The twelve-piece orchestra of Harold Nelson will be featured at the Mid-week hop tonight from 8-10 p.m. in Wills gym. Betty Ott, former KSU student, is the band’s vocalist. An ensemble of six of the band members played at the hop two weeks ago. &gt; Nelson’s band, which includes members who have played in name bands, has been broadcast on coast to coast networks. One of the sax players, Bill Byrne, graduated from KSU in 1949. “The purpose of these Mid-week dances is to get acquainted and to meet students without formal introduction,” Raymond E. Manchester, dean of men, asserted in regard to the indifferent attitude of the men attending the dances. The situation exists of the males standing on one side and the females on the other. Even the presence of hostesses has not noticably altered this condition. There has been an attendance of more than 600 every week at the hops this yea...
De Seversky Talks Here [Newspaper Article] — Daily Kent Stater — 22 October 1952
De Seversky Talks Here Aeronautical engineer, designer, pilot and outstanding authority on air strategy and tactics, Major Alexander P. de Seversky will be the Forum committee’s speaker on Wednesday, Oct. 29. Famous for his outspoken comment, he has never hesitated to criticize American military policy when it failed to give proper emphasis to air power, a strategic force which Major de Seversky believes offers the only path to peace. A man of action as well as theory, he has probably flown more types of planes all over the world than any other living airman—from the earliest craft to the latest jet planes. In the last war, he made the public air-conscious with his prophetic book “Victory Through Air Power.” In the new world crisis, he turns once more to the public in lectures and in his new book, “Air Power: Key to Survival.” This will be the nature of his talk on the Wednesday evening program.

WANTED 900 BLIND DATES [Newspaper Article] — Daily Kent Stater — 22 October 1952
WANTED 900 BLIND DATES By Jim Butler It’s a long time before May 9, 1953, but the job of finding 900 blind dates by that time is one that just might take a little time. That’s right, 900 girls are needed for blind dates that night when the Ist Regimental Drill meeting of Pershing Rifles is held on this campus. Men from 12 schools will converge on the campus that day for drill activities with a dance concluding the activities. The men come from 10 schools in Ohio and one in West Virginia. Ohio schools are Bowling Green, Ohio university, Ohio State, Xavier, Cincinnati, John Carroll, Akron, Dayton, and Toledo. West Virginia State is the “foreign” school. George Pletcher, administrative assistant of Pershing Rifles, is stuck with the task of rounding up the 900 girls. He suggests that any girls interested contact him through his mailbox, giving their name, age, height, address and any additional information they desire. The Stater will also collect names of willing girls to aid Pletcher...
UT Presents 'Gammer Gurton’s Needle’ Comic Play Will Feature Racy Satire [Newspaper Article] — Daily Kent Stater — 22 October 1952
UT Presents 'Gammer Gurton’s Needle’ Comic Play Will Feature Racy Satire “Gammer Gurton’s Needle,’ the ancient and delightful English comedy, will open the Studio Theatre’s 1952-53 season tomorrow evening under the direction of Prof. G. Harry Wright. Curtain time is 7:30 p.m. in the new Studio Theatre in Kent hall. The play in verse, which was first presented about 1566, promises to supply plenty of satire and comic realism which is so representative of the native English man. It is also one of the few living plays which combines the classical form and racy native content characteristic of the days before the accession of Elizabeth. For this reason, “Gammer Gurton” should be of especial interest to students and faculty in the English and history departments. Heading the list of dramatis personae is Gammer Gurton, portrayed by Shirley Hill. She looses her needle while mending Hodge’s (Ron Rice’s) breeches. Diccon, the town jokester, (Gus Aivoliotus) spreads the word that Dame Chat (B...
EDITORIAL It’s Still Tops [Newspaper Article] — Daily Kent Stater — 22 October 1952
EDITORIAL It’s Still Tops The 1952 Chestnut Burr is First Class. It is among the top five year-books in the nation. It should have been All-Ameri-can but the judge saw fit to name only one book in this class. Last year there were six All-Americans. We had the privilege of seeing the Burr grow from a dream ~to a reality in a year’s time. We missed the boat by not being a part of this great triumph. The book was not just paper and ink to us. We saw time, energy, and sweat combined to make the Burr what it is, an All-American in the estimation of those who can judge it best, the students. It is far from a disgrace to have a first class book. Indeed, it is an honor. But it hurts when you were counting on an All-American. After reading the critical booklet released by the National Scholastic Press Association we are thoroughly convinced that the survey was done in a manner which was, to say the least, unfair. Little consideration is given to limitations which exist in the school where th...
REPORTION SPILT COFFEE FROM THE HUR-CATS [Newspaper Article] — Daily Kent Stater — 22 October 1952
REPORTION SPILT COFFEE FROM THE HUR-CATS By Jim Butler Musings by the Wednesday morning mutterer and what ever happened to Wib Little, Jack Mancos and the football team? This corner refers those who wonder about the Flashes to yesterday’s article by sports writer Jack Schoonover. We agree with his analysis. * * * Our hats are hoisted this week to President Bowman who provided a bright spot at Homecoming with one of the finest, short halftime speeches ever presented. Despite his inaccuracy about the inevitable out-come of the contest his mention of Kent’s youth was realistic truth ... borne out by many faults committed the rest of the afternoon from various sources. * * * FILE and FORGET department: Homecoming . . . but it was good to see the alums. * * * Department of Progress this week salutes Emil Berg, who vowed he would have the Mall (Stater Square) completed before Saturday. It was a great improvement and shows that things can be done when people work around here. * * * THE VIG...
Chutes Donned By Vet Pilots [Newspaper Article] — Daily Kent Stater — 22 October 1952
Chutes Donned By Vet Pilots By Don Bean Don’t be alarmed if you happen to see a parachute being worn through the halls of KSU j by some stalwart young man, or if you happen to see a parachute dragging a comely coed down the halls. It’s only a member of the KSU Flying club that has just completed a solo flight. It is a tradition of the club that a member who has completed his first solo flight must wear a parachute to classes all day. The present day KSU Flying club was organized in the fall of ’46. Andrew W. Paton, head of driverstraining, was the organizer and present faculty advisor to the club. The core of the original group were ex- [ Gl’s learning to fly. The purpose of the club, in the words of Mr. Payton, is, “If you want to fly economically, fly cooperatively.” The club now owns two planes, an Aeronca Chief and a Piper J. 5 Cruiser. There are now 17 members, seven of which have private licenses, and the rest are taking lessons. Two of the members are women. The club is a cor...
Girl Athletes Plan Events [Newspaper Article] — Daily Kent Stater — 22 October 1952
Girl Athletes Plan Events By Janet Harsh All sports-loving coeds should be interested in the intra-mural sports program offered here at KSU. Presided over by Betty Moss, the Women’s Athletic association provides a recreational sports program for all University women. It also creates a spirit of good sportsmanship and fellowship.

Studio Theatre Invades New Proscenium Stage [Newspaper Article] — Daily Kent Stater — 22 October 1952
Studio Theatre Invades New Proscenium Stage The Studio Theatre organization has undergone many changes resulting from the addition of the new studio theatre in 119 Kent. Student’s will miss the production of one act plays “in-the-round” this year, since most of the plays presented by the organization will be held on the new proscenium stage. Studio Theatre is under the sponsorship of University Theatre and is concerned mainly with one act plays. Last year nineteen one act plays were presented which provided opportunities for over a hundred different people in acting alone. In addition, a number of plays were presented for touring to high schools, clubs, and alumni groups. The plays are chosen from a wide variety of drama to give students experience in many different fields of acting. The productions are also directed by students. Among the plays to be presented this year will be “The Boor” by Chekhov, “A Night In An Inn” by Lord Dunsany, and Noel Coward’s “Fumed Oak.” Try outs for t...
Editor’s Mail [Newspaper Article] — Daily Kent Stater — 22 October 1952
Editor’s Mail Editor of the Kent Stater; On Thursday, October 16, a demonstration of school spirit was shown, which we of the Athletic department feel was without peer. The football squad was more impressed by this gesture of support than any other moves which had been made on their behalf. We particularly wish to thank Jeff Barnard, president of the Boosters club, who did a wonderful job of making the rally possible and a success. To the cheerleaders, we also wish to say thank you very much. The Kent State university coaches and the team salute a fine organization worthy of everyone’s support. The coaches and 1952 Football Squad Editor’s note: If we could only have had some of that spirit at the game on Saturday it would have been much nicer. We agree that the Boosters did a fine job on the rally.
Flashes Drop To Third Place In Mid-American [Newspaper Article] — Daily Kent Stater — 22 October 1952
Flashes Drop To Third Place In Mid-American There will be an undisputed leader in the Mid-American conference by late afternoon next Saturday. That’s when Ohio U, with a 3-0 conference record, meets Miami, with a 2-0 mark. The only other conference game on Saturday’s agenda will pit Toledo against Bowling Green. Saturday’s loss to Ohio U not — dropped Kent State out of title contention (the Flashes are now in third place with a 2-1 loop record), but also hurt it in individual statistics. Jim Cullom skidded from second to eighth place in individual rushing. He now owns a rushing average of 4.8 yards a try. Dick Pitts, meanwhile, hiked his average up to 6.4, good enough for fifth place. Tom Zachary, of Miami, is the conference leader with 8.3. Pitts and Cullom are the only Kent men mentioned in the largest conference statistics. Kent is third in team offense with an average of 304.8 yards a game. It trails Miami and Cincinnati. On defense, the Golden Flashes are sixth in the nine team...
