Campus Shows Changes Tennis Courts, Toboggan Slide And Barbecue Grills Completed Still in the process of having its face lifted, the campus has been changed greatly. A 960 foot toboggan slide is completed in back of the old athletic field and seven outdoor fire places are installed in back of Engleman hall for barbecue parties. Three new cement tennis courts will be completed near the site of the old ones. new courts have been constructed so that it will be possible to flood them for ice skating in the winter. However, there are even more important changes on the campus with the nearly completed heating plant and the new McGilvrey hall. The power plant, housing five automatic, high pressure boilers, will furnish heat for all of the 17 buildings on the campus. It is expected that with the new equipment, coal consumption will be cut in half. The heating plant and McGilvrey hall are the largest units of the construction projects, costing $127,044.

Plan to Eat Turkey on November 23 [Newspaper Article] — The Kent Stater — 25 September 1939
Plan to Eat Turkey on November 23 Kent State university celebrates Thanksgiving on November 23. The holiday will start Wednesday, Nov. 22 at sp. m. This announce- 1 ment was made by Dr. K. C. Leebrick, president of the university, after receipt of a letter from Governor John W. Bricker by Registrar E. C. Stopher. All previous university calendars, setting the date of Thanksgiving, are to be disregarded, Dr. Leebrick stated. Gov. Bricker wrote, "The General Code of Ohio provides that any day appointed and recommended by the President of the United States as a day of Thanksgiving shall be a holiday. President Roosevelt has designated November 23 as Thanksgiving day this year and because I believe that it should be celebrated uniformly throughout the country I have not recommended otherwise."
Starn Vexed Over Lineup [Newspaper Article] — The Kent Stater — 25 September 1939
Starn Vexed Over Lineup If there is anything certain in football, Coach "Rosy" Starn would like to hear about it. When Starn issued the first call for practice, and good prospects came as rain from heaven, it seemed to all concerned that Kent State rooters would support the best team in the history of the school. Yet today, Starn sits at his desk attempting to figure out a starting lineup that will do justice to the pre-season predictions of Kent State football. Tlie injury jinx, the secret terror of all coaches, has sprung up and done its work on nine of the players slated to see action this fall. Mickey Mittiga, sterling back-! felt the curse of this jinx when he wrenched his knee in a scrimmage late last week. Mittiga will probably be on the sidelines during the first game. Jimmy Jones, Dick Kilbourne, Les Netzen together with five others have been placed on the sidelines from scrimmage injury. Starn is as much in the dark as ever about his starting line-up. He expects to start D...

Pretty Stater Patroness Grows Up, Comes to Kent; Finds University Has Grown as She Prophesied [Newspaper Article] — The Kent Stater — 25 September 1939
Pretty Stater Patroness Grows Up, Comes to Kent; Finds University Has Grown as She Prophesied A long, long time ago, when we were chanting, "rain, rain, go away" in Public School No. 3 and no one ever dreamed that Kent would boast a state university and the fastest growing university in the United States, a bright-eyed one-year-old baby named Eleanor Hope, daughter of Dr. H. D. Byrne, became patroness of the Kentonian. The Kentonian has, as the years slipped by, evolved from a monthly pamphlet into a tri-weekly newspaper. We have finally matriculated from No. 3. But, Eleanor Hope Byrne is still very much a cute, bright-eyed miss; she is entering Kent State university this semester as a major in art. Back in 1923, when she accepted the position as "staff baby," Eleanor said in a letter, which she naturally wrote herself, 1 perhaps with a litle fatherly advice and help) the growing habit is one of the interesting things in life. Besides, it's awfully easy to grow. What with proper foo...
3,000 Student Enrollment Seen [Newspaper Article] — The Kent Stater — 25 September 1939
3,000 Student Enrollment Seen Registrar Stopher Expects Late Arrivals on Campus to Swell Final Registration Total to 2,600 Official figures this morning show that Kent State university's total student enrollment probably will exceed 3,000 students. This enrolTment will include registration of students at the two university centers located at Canton and Warren, and those signed up for Saturday and evening classes. 1 Registrar E. C. Stopher expects that late arriving students will swell the present 2454 campus enrollment close to 2600. If registration in Saturday and evening classes runs true to expected form, approximately 200 will enroll.' This with the anticipated registration of 300 at the two university centers will well pass the 3000 mark. At this time last year the campus enrollment had reached the 1938-39 peak of 2410. Saturday and evening student registrati on brought the quota to 2566, last year's record-breaking campus enrollment. ,800 Extension Students If the large enroll...
Salon Pictures To Be Exhibited [Newspaper Article] — The Kent Stater — 25 September 1939
Salon Pictures To Be Exhibited Beginning today and continuing until Saturday, the Collegiate Digest Salon pictures will be on exhibit in the art gallery, located on the second floor between Merrill and Kent halls. The prints, which are being shown in colleges throughout the United States, were selected from 485 contest entries in conjunction with the printing of the special Salon edition of the Digest last spring. "This is the finest collection of amateur collegiate prints that I have seen, and compares most favorably with many of the commercial exhibits," Frederick J. Noer, editor of the Collegiate Digest, said.
Useless Textbooks [Newspaper Article] — The Kent Stater — 25 September 1939
Useless Textbooks A college student hates to buy textbooks he never uses. The cost of a college education prohibits the useless expenditure of money. Often, he purchases a book that is supposed to be required, only to find it replaced by countless pages of outside reading or by lectures. Supplementary readings have a definite place in any course. However, if outside readings or hours of lectures constitute the basic material, a textbook should not be required. Students recognize this error, and would like to change this. However, they are given little opportunity to rectify this condition. Professors might add a great deal to the attractiveness of their courses by consulting the class on the advisability and necessity of the prescribed textbook.—C. P. —K—
Registration-An Ordeal [Newspaper Article] — The Kent Stater — 25 September 1939
Registration-An Ordeal Registration is an ordeal that is dreaded by Kent State students and faculty. The "priceless" hour card that admits the student magically through the ranks must be obtained at the price of sleep or tired feet. Hours of waiting in line to see an advisor and hours spent in getting the trial program checked, produce sore feet and weary students. In addition the faculty do not exactly enjoy listening to hours of woe and keeping the "mob" under control. Several colleges have a different system of registration that might be adapted to the situation at Kent State. At any rate, a better system of registration can surely be devised so , that each student gets more attention and more accurate advice. Kent State is growing and each year this problem will become greater. Perhaps, a method could be arranged whereby those who have few conflicts and no difficulties can readily have their schedules checked without waiting endlessly in line. Those with conflicts or those desir...
