Dorms will be filled by student increase [Newspaper Article] — The Summer Kent Stater — 14 August 1980
Dorms will be filled by student increase By NANCY BOWMAN An overall increase in University enrollment has forced residence services to open more dorms and alter room accommodation plans, Roger Sorochty, director of residence services here said last week. Sorochty said he expects about 5,600 undergraduates in the dorms when classes begin Sept. 2, the most since 1972. Last year, 4,700 undergraduates occupied dorm rooms when classes started. To make room for the increase in residents, 27 of the University’s 29 dorms will be open for occupancy. Heer Hall, which is leased by the Portage County Board of Education and two social service agencies, and Wright Hall, which is used in part as University offices, will be the only two dorms not occupied by students. VAN CAMPEN Hall, which was not used last year, and Harbourt Hall, whicl] was used to accommodate an overflow of graduate students requesting on-cam-pus housing last year, will both be used for undergraduate housing this year, Sorochty...

Richard L. Backer, KSU registrar, said Tuesday that any student who hands in a registration or a drop/add form after the first week of classes, up to the 15th calendar day of a semester, will have to pay a $2O late fee.

In the previous year, the late registration or drop/add fee was $lO, and was assessed after late registration was completed.

Voter registrars are needed [Newspaper Article] — The Summer Kent Stater — 14 August 1980
Voter registrars are needed A group of KSU students will be going to Ravenna tomorrow to register as deputies, but they will not be able to arrest anyone. Instead, they will become registration deputies; empowered to register students to vote in Portage County in the upcoming general election. The deputization of students who are residents of the county is part of an effort by Student Caucus and the League of Women Voters to encourage.more students to use their vote, and become involved in local and national politics, Chris Menne, caucus executive secretary, said Monday. MENNE SAID Caucus is still looking for more volunteers to become registrars, and that they do not have to be students. The deputies will then be asked to work at tables in the Student Center, or in the dorms, registering students who wish to vote here. She said they also will have applications for absentee ballots for students who want to retain their voting status in their home county. MENNE SAID caucus sponsors th...

Editorial Focus on issues is important now [Newspaper Article] — The Summer Kent Stater — 14 August 1980
Editorial Focus on issues is important now By now, the Democratic party has all but left its 1980 convention site at Madison Square Garden in New York City. Their presidential campaign platform set, and the nomination of President Carter secured, it should be all over except for the shouting. For the Democrats, the most important thing right now may be the shouting. Carter’s nomination was virtually locked up on Monday night, as his forces won an easy victory over Sen. Edward Kennedy’s troops. Kennedy had the political “good sense” to step down at that point, but as of yet, he has not helped his party. An Aug. 5 and 6 survey, taken by ABC News and Harris pollsters, showed Republican presidential nominee Ronald Reagan with 48 percent of the public’s support, Carter with 28 percent and independent candidate John Anderson with 19 percent of the vote. Clearly, the Democrats need help in the form of party unity and public support. Kennedy, among others, could help the Democrats with an e...
Windfall tax: a good idea but falls far short of goals [Newspaper Article] — The Summer Kent Stater — 14 August 1980
Windfall tax: a good idea but falls far short of goals By JOHN FUNTIK Stater Columnist The Windfall Profits Tax, thought to provide a needed boon for developing our energy resources, is fatally flawed. In theory it may be a good idea but as it now stands it is insufficient. The Windfall Profits Tax (WPT) was originally proposed by President Carter in April 1979, to recover “for public purposes” part of the estimated $1 trillion consumers will pay for oil by 1990 as price controls are lifted from domestic production. The tax, signed into law by Carter in April 1980, takes 30 to 70 percent of the difference between the controlled price of oil and the selling price after decontrol, depending on the type and “age” of the oil. THE TROUBLE begins be cause Carter originally proposed the tax as part of a massive “energy bill” to encourage energy independence in this nation, but it falls far short of this goal. First, the title is not accurate as to the law’s true intention. The WPT is not a...
Challenges artists' preconceived notions Art program is a concoction of tastes [Newspaper Article] — The Summer Kent Stater — 14 August 1980
Challenges artists' preconceived notions Art program is a concoction of tastes By PHYLLIS LUKENS Kent’s Blossom Art Program is a layer cake. Concocted of tastes ranging from down-to-earth to exotic, traditional and avant garde; stirred by a continuous internal dialogue and baked in the August heat of Kent’s art studios the rich mixture has begun to rise and take shape. A slice of the program /eveals some staple ingredients, including challenge, change, choice and communication. BRYNSLEY Tyrrell, program co-director, said “the program is intended to challenge .artists’ preconceived notions.” The students selected for the month-long program are sometimes surprised by the set-up, in which they work as an apprentice to master artists which are visiting professionals, rather than working on their own projects. Sculpting student Jack Schlecter, said that for him the best thing about the program is the exposure to ideas and seeing how the visiting artists work. FOR MANY the program is exci...
