Relics of The Dark Ages [Newspaper Article] — The Kent Stater — 18 October 1939
Relics of The Dark Ages Why do students think the university provides mailboxes? From the appearance of some of the boxes, it is entirely possible that they are regarded as useless relics of the dark ages. Other students seem to regard them as safety deposit boxes. Still others regard the mailboxes as receptacles for trash —they simply take the accumulation of notices from the boxes and throw them unread into the nearest mailboxes. Dean Manchester's Saturday Letter reaches students via mailboxes. The familiar sepia sheets often can be seen in the boxes for several days. In case you don't know what the purpose of the boxes is, we'll tell you. They provide a means of transmitting necessary information to students. Visit your mailbox often and read the notices.—CP K-T
Responsibility [Newspaper Article] — The Kent Stater — 18 October 1939
Responsibility Valuable books have been disappearing from various rooms on the campus. In the rest rooms, purses have been tampered with. Stealing books is a serious matter. In one case, new books that cost seven dollars were taken. A few students are to blame for this. The rest of the students can help by feeling responsible to report such situations.—CP —K—
Dawn of A New Day [Newspaper Article] — The Kent Stater — 18 October 1939
Dawn of A New Day Too many of the students of this campus are like the students on other campuses. Because a coach cannot put a winning team on the field every year, students go around predicting where the coach will be next year. Many of the students on this campus have whined about the staff of coaches at Kent State. But as can be plainly seen, it wasn't the coaches but the lack of material. The coaches are beginning to benefit from the rapid growth of the enrollment and are now putting capable teams on the field. We commend the administration for building up the staff they now have and keeping it intact through the lean years.—RK

Sounds Over the Campus Subject of— Up-town Lowdown By Bob Kenyon Thoughts While Strolling: Prof. Packard, as much a part of Kent State as Merrill Hall . . . Effervescent, the word sounds just as it means . . . Hope is a wonderful thing—just ask the cosmetic companies . . . Strange that no one has said anything about Peg Carperj corraling approximately one-third of the pledges. The Editor's Night Out: In the coon chase we're wondering what they mean by "first tree dog." . . . Webster says a doxy is a sweetheart —um —hummm, let me call you doxy ..." Short Quips : We wonder if yon have heard Walter Winchell's latest on how to tell the sex of a penguin? As the story goes you tell the bird a joke, and if he laughs it's a male and if she laughs it's a female. We suppose if nothing happens it's one of Ben Bernies'. Hasn't anybody said anything about Eriser's pants? . . . Poland officials, who skipped to Rumania during the hotspell in Poland, should know how toothpaste feels, what with Sovi...

An Hour a Week Subject of— At This End [Newspaper Article] — The Kent Stater — 18 October 1939
An Hour a Week Subject of— At This End With nothing to do Sunday evening a group of Kent State students decided to head for Akron and a good time. This is the story of Johnny Doe, who sat in the midst of a group of jovial lads and lasses planning an exciting evening. Their destination was reached but Johnny didn't fit into the plans. He wandered from the group. Walking through the buzz-fuzz of the ineoned lighted Akron business district he tUrned up one of the less attractive side streets. Now Johnny didn't notice the brightly lit neons, but partially up this side street was a dimly lighted church opening, illuminated by a small sized Edison —Johnny did notice this. Strangely attracted ( by this dim light John- , ny crossed the street and walked up to the doorway. The doors were swung partially open as if feebly Reckoning him to come in. Johnny made his way up a flight of dusty stone steps and peeked into the interior of the church. What he ;saw drew him inside. The congregation was...
Gripers Subject of— Once Overs [Newspaper Article] — The Kent Stater — 18 October 1939
Gripers Subject of— Once Overs By Virginia Frederick Something ought to be done about the gripers here at Kent. Some of them are so good that they surely must he professionals at the game. If the school does something, it's nice, but down at Podunk they do this and why on earth can't Kent do something more like that? Many times they use the argument that if Kent is such a growing and progressive school, there is no reason why they should still be doing things like they have been for the last umpteen years. It seems odd to me that people cdn't realize that such progress must be slow and that Kent has already progressed beyond it's capacity right now. All those things we want will come eventually, if people will just be more patient and try to help the school along a little. This all sounds very Pollyannaish . . . but I know . . . for I've griped too. The new stadium has been a good subject this year. All the would be big-wigs on the campus have thought it was just too horrible that a...
