Flippered Visitors Study Skin Diving Techniques [Newspaper Article] — Kent State University Summer News — 16 July 1959
Flippered Visitors Study Skin Diving Techniques Recent morning visitors to the pool* in Memorial gymnasium have been confronted with Mars-like creatures with seeming affinity for the darker depths of the pool. These flippered, goggle-eyed, hump-backed-appearing creatures are not out of space visitors—denizens of the murky waters of another planet. Rather, they are representatives of "Ohio’s finest”—Highway Patrolmen working overtime to master the techniques of skin diving. Because of recent water accidents in the area, Ravenna Patrolman Jack Forbes felt that Patrolmen could render better service if they were trained in deep water procedures. Forbes contacted University officials, who put him in touch with Bill Gebhart, president of KSU’s Skin Diving club. Gebhart, a senior conservation ma- from Kent, agreed to instruct a group of Patrolmen in skindiving techniques, and the University made the Memorial pool available for the instruction. Forbes, Don Brumback, Nick Hannison, and Mac M...

Resick Enters Century Club [Newspaper Article] — Kent State University Summer News — 16 July 1959
Resick Enters Century Club Coach Matt Resick has been named an award winner and member of Bike Web Century club for his record of 101 victories in baseball. The honorary organization is open to any college or high school coach whose athletic teams have won 100 or more contests in any sport. William Matthei, coach at Bayview high school, Milwaukee, received the first award. Matthei originally suggested the idea of the Century Club in a letter to Sports Trail, a monthly newsletter published by the Bike Web Co. It was Matthei’s hope that perhaps some unknown coach who had done an outstanding job in school sports might get a break from this type of recognition. The Century Club award, a framed certificate, is presented to any qualifying coach whose record is submitted to Sports Trail.

Census Of Trees, Shrubs, Vines Big Job For Wooddell, Foldessy [Newspaper Article] — Kent State University Summer News — 23 July 1959
Census Of Trees, Shrubs, Vines Big Job For Wooddell, Foldessy Taking a census of campus green-&lt; ery (no pun intended) is quite a task. There are 33,346 trees, shrubs and vines on the campus by actual count. Russell Foldessy, who recently joined the staff as an assistant to Larry Wooddell, superintendent of grounds, has completed the counting which Wooddell began. It is almost an impossible task to determine just what is classified as a "tree” in such a survey, so all trees, shrubs and vines were counted. However. KSU’s tree total has been set at 1,072 of the deciduous type. There are 500 varieties. Foldessy’s survey turns up some interesting totals. There are 13,785 shrubs, 109 vines and 12 narrowleafed trees. Also, there are 2,758 evergreens and 5,372 broad-leafed &gt;shrubs. A further look at the survey shows there are 8,308 evergreen vines and 558 of the semi-evergreen variety. Herbaceous plants number 1,199, plus 5,074 herbaceous trees, shrubs and plants havin...

Dr. Warner Back From European Tour [Newspaper Article] — Kent State University Summer News — 23 July 1959
Dr. Warner Back From European Tour Dr. Richard Warner, head of the School of Music, recently returned with Mrs. Warner from a March through June travel and study tour of England and continental Europe. They visited universities, schools of music, libraries, and heard cathedral choirs and outstanding concerts and operas. When Dr. and Mrs. Warner arrived in a small town, they would inquire of the hotel clerk concerning the musical entertainment which was available. This must have been a banner year for Mozart’s "The Magic Flute” as they heard it performed three times. While in Europe Dr. Warner did research work in 16th century choral music and examined many original manuscripts in the libraries of universities including the Bodleian library at Oxford —and studied the hand-written manuscripts of noted 16th century composers Orlando Gibbons and William Byrd. This is a Purcell and Handel festival year, and the KSU professor studied many of their original manuscripts and scores in the Br...

1959 Graduate Receives Grant Phyllis K. Smith, a 1959 KSU graduate, has been selected as one of 20 persons who will receive a year’s intensive training in Russian under a National Defense Education act grant at Indiana university.

Writing Balloon Bursts For Journalism Student [Newspaper Article] — Kent State University Summer News — 23 July 1959
Writing Balloon Bursts For Journalism Student "Time waits for no . . . etc. etc.”' was brought forcefully to the attention of Mrs. Dale Topping this past week. She is a summer student from Akron and a member of a journalism class in feature writing conducted by Prof. William A. Fisher. Mrs. Topping, whose husband is associated with Goodyear Aircraft Corp., researched and wrote an interesting and informative article on the use of manned balloons to give artillery officers of the Union forces eyes in the skies during the war between the States. The article was considered especially timely since it emp- diasized the role played by the balloon as a war weapon and the support given to its use by President Lincoln. It was thought it would fit in well with the Lincoln centennial year observance, etc. The writer and the professor, after some deliberation, selected the Kiwanis Magazine as a prospective market for the article. It was an excellent choice as the current issue of the magazine ar...
