No Parking Problem for This Commuter-He Flies [Newspaper Article] — The Kent Stater — 20 October 1939
No Parking Problem for This Commuter-He Flies The sweet hum of a 65 horse power airplane engine that will be heard every Monday morning and Friday evening will only be the prelude to Galen Edward Elser's trip to Kent State university music lessons from Youngstown every week. The trip will require about 30 minutes of flying time Galen believes. Galen graduated from YoungstOjWn college last summer with an A. B. degree in music. He is now working on his B. S. degree in music. At the present Galen owns a monocoupe which he is planning 1 to fly between Youngstown and Kent. This is his third plane; the first two were of his own design. Wearing a parachute for the first time saved his life this sum- mer. Galen was stunting near his home-town, Youngstown, last summer when the wings of his ship were torn off while flying upside down and he had to leave it. "I was just wearing the 'chute to get the feel of it and to get used to sitting on one," he said. He has since become a member of the wor...
Activity Cards [Newspaper Article] — The Kent Stater — 20 October 1939
Activity Cards Students are having a lot of fun over the pictures on the activity cards. Here and there through the halls, small groups can be seen huddled over a picture. Snatches of conversation can be heard similar to this "how awful," "1 hope I don't look like that," or "I'll never show it to anyone." A picture of the student on the card makes it non-transferable. This probably helps the administration, but a little more care could have been exercised in taking these pictures. —CP —K—
On A Victory Dance [Newspaper Article] — The Kent Stater — 20 October 1939
On A Victory Dance If Kent State wins from Findlay today, some department.should open the gym to visitors and students for a dance. A victory dance can be easily held with a little cooperation from students and faculty. The recordings of the HPE department can contribute the music, and as long as the students show pep and enthusiasm, the victory dance will be a success. —CP —K—
Freshmen, Opportunity Knocks [Newspaper Article] — The Kent Stater — 20 October 1939
Freshmen, Opportunity Knocks Class of 1943, you have been given an opportunity to serve your new alma mater in a tangible way. You will have an opportunity to show the team that you are behind them. You will have an opportunity to instill some "umph" into school spirit. You can show scoffers you are capable of doing things. Yes, freshmen, opportunity knocks! You may respond simply by taking your place in the stands at today's game, following your own personal cheerleader—and rocking the foundations of Rockwell field with explosive yelling. —MD —K—"Home," says Carrie, the Campus Courter, "was never like this!"

The Other Side [Newspaper Article] — The Kent Stater — 20 October 1939
The Other Side Last week, our spies tell us, this? column made some remarks concerning freshmen hats, tradition, Blue Key and this 'n' that. Those same remarks still go and will be made from time to time 'till June of 1940 —unless frosh hats stay on or unless frosh hats cease to be sold. There are some slight misinterpretations among a few of us as to just/what was said and what was meant by the refer ence to Woody Barkett; some thought that I inferred that Woody was silver-lining the pockets of his trousers with the proceeds from the hat sales. I certainly did not say that and I most emphatically did not insinuate any such drivel. I said Blue Key raked off —Blue Key did. But, Blue Key did only what many other campus organizations' have done in the past; they take turn about in the most delightful, and incidently quite profitable, pastime of slipping frosh the wormy apple. Blue Key was mentioned simply because it wore the mask and held the gun this year. There will be other years, o...
Kent Karousal [Newspaper Article] — The Kent Stater — 20 October 1939
Kent Karousal By Bill Lloyd The time is nigh for the male undergraduates of this fair country of ours to rise up. For years, yea verily, the men have borne the brunt of the criticism directed at the dress and mannerisms of the collegiate population. Meanwhile their feminine counterparts have gone blithely on, doing as they pleased, and suffering none of the opprobrium which has beset the college men. "Joe College,' a tin pan alley term at best, has long been applied to us, but have the adorable little co-eds, who out-do us at every turn, been subjected to a pseudonym like this, never. In the aged game of campus life, we are beginning to realize that they are out doing us at every turn. Now the trend has arrived at Kent to the jextent of allowing the fair maidens to crash the sanctity of the fraternity houses during day time hours, jand for no particular reason. Our apparel, bit by bit, is being stolen. Reversible coats, saddle shoes, shirts, ties, and lord where it is going to stop....

Flying Made Easy For KSU Students [Newspaper Article] — The Kent Stater — 20 October 1939
Flying Made Easy For KSU Students A less privileged man, paying up to $3OO, will learn no more about aviation than will the Kent students who are to start their actual ground school work in conjunction with the Vocational Flight Training program some time next week. In fact, the theoretical and technical knowledge to be gained for $3O will far surpass that which the average person receives / after spending a great deal more time and money. The program calls for sufficient training to prepare a student for a private pilot certificate of competency. The layman student receives, first of all, a minimum of eight hours of dual instruction. This is is incorporated with some ground school work as the student progresses. After this eight hours, or, when the student is judged competent to fly alone, he solos for a minimumof 35 hours. At the end of thisj' time, flight and written tests are taken, and, if passed, a private license is awarded. This certificate entitles the pilot to carry non-pa...

Those recently numbered on the sick list are: Esther Zimmerman, Mary Ellen Hays, Winifred Smith, Genevieve Ruddy, Arlene Clapper, Wilma Baxter, Bob Hart, Joanne Borafka, Lillian Safko, Bonita Dray, Marjorie Bolhm, Ralph I Muerth, Margie Brown, Henry Metzger, Bill Sours, Richard Shelly, Frank Percoco and Tom Kane.

Some Say [Newspaper Article] — The Kent Stater — 20 October 1939
Some Say By Nat Floersheimer Yesterday, I put on some dark glasses, pulled an old hat over my eye, turned up my overcoat collar, took a deep breath, whispered a prayer, and walked into the registrar's office to get my student activity card. When the majority of students received theirs, gales of laughter echoed in the atrium. Yet, in the midst of this merry group I noticed one fellow, alone, gazing through half opened eyes as if he were afraid of what he might see, muttering to himself, "Do I really look like that?" I've seen students take a quick glance at their cards—then .hide them. A few minutes later take them out again, just to make sure what they previously saw was really there—not just an optical illusion. These pictures may be classed in two groups; those that are not too bad, and those that are not too good. One of the objects of attaching the pictures was to keep students from transferring their _ passes. I'm sure they will succeed for I don't believe I could give not eve...
