Instructor Awaits Thesis Publication [Newspaper Article] — The Kent Stater — 25 October 1939
Instructor Awaits Thesis Publication William L. Wannemacher, instructor in history of the university, is waiting for the publication of his thesis to receive his Ph. D. from Columbia university. This may not take place until June if the decision is made to publish it in book form. It would not be a book for college students to study because it is too technical. Even the name is technical. For practical purposes we can call it, "The Development of the Roman Civil Administration bureaus from 27 B. C. to 285 A. D." In order to collect the data for his thesis it was necessary for Professor Wannemacher to go through thousands of copies of inscriptions that have been found in the ruins of ancient Rome. He says that he first became interested in this particular period of history when he studied archeology in college and he believes that it is a "fascinating subject." When asked whether he preferred their system of government to the present day system, he said that, "Their government was as...

Clyde Miller Sees Danger Of War Involvement [Newspaper Article] — The Kent Stater — 25 October 1939
Clyde Miller Sees Danger Of War Involvement There is great danger of our country getting in the present war because of our emotions, declared Clyde Miller, director of the Institute for Propaganda Analysis, in an interview in the Stater office Monday after the President's Day assembly. "Propaganda," he said, "carries a high charge of emotion causing us to think with our blood instead of with our brains. Critical thinking and testing of all we read in the newspapers or hear on the radio, will enable us to recognize propaganda as such when we see it."

Sad Day [Newspaper Article] — The Kent Stater — 25 October 1939
Sad Day Kent Staters feel pretty bad. Kent Staters have a right to feel pretty bad. Friday's game with Findlay discouraged the fans quite a bit. They thought our boys didn't fight hard enough. In fact, they thought they didn't even try hard enough. It doesn't add to the morale to watch the other team run down the field for a touchdown with no one at their heels. Maybe Kent Staters have a right to feel low. Every team has its ups and downs. Some of us believe Kent State does have a good ball team. We can make it better by staying with them when they need us.—CP —K—
Let's Be Natural [Newspaper Article] — The Kent Stater — 25 October 1939
Let's Be Natural Not so long ago we had an assembly on traditions. We were given the formula for making a tradition, just like the receipe for a cake. You put the ingredients in, bake in a oven, and, presto you have a cake —Traditions aren't like that. Traditions have no set rules to make them such . . . You can't do one thing, then another and call it a tradition —because it seems like it has all the essentials necessary for one. Traditions go deeper than the surface. You just don't see and act one, you feel it. We'll have traditions on this campus aplenty, but they won't come about because they seem to have all the requirements, but because we feel them and they'll be natural . . . So let's be natural. —TC . —K—

Letters to the Editor [Newspaper Article] — The Kent Stater — 25 October 1939
Letters to the Editor I don't claim to be a writer, but I think Bob Cain's article rejecting the past criticism of "undependable cheerleading" hits the spot exactly. It is indeed no simple task to have the responsibility of leading a group of students who neither care to nor try to cooperate in the yells at the game but rather save their yells to upbraid those who try to keep the spirit. The cheerleaders certainly should have outfits and equipment at least as good as the small surrounding high schools. It would also be a good idea to have sheets containing the various yells given to each individual as he passes the entrance gate. This should be done at least until the cheers are better known. This would enable those who are willing to cooperate to have a chance. It seems that cheerleaders are few in number. There are, I'm plenty sure, plenty of students who have the ability to lead and would be delighted to have the chance, yes, girls as well as boys. Last Friday I happened to get t...
postscripts [Newspaper Article] — The Kent Stater — 25 October 1939
postscripts by Ted Charles Al's has two nickelodeons now —One you put a nickel into and get music, the other you just put a nickle in—But of course the slot machines are all gone. The newest fad of the week —■ Digilently hunching over the phone and dialing the girls' dorms every two seconds to see if you can beat the other guy to the draw. "A Man and his Dream" —A four point average, a convertible, and Ann Sheridan. The freshmen did yell—they sounded like the ocean waves rushing over the rocks; the upperclassmen on the other side of the field sounded like water dripping out of a faucet. Boston beat Temple, Reserve beat Boston, B. W. beat Reserve, if Kent beats B. W. we're better than Temple . . . Simple isn't it . . . in more ways than one.
KSU Mirror [Newspaper Article] — The Kent Stater — 25 October 1939

Polite Pilfering Subject of— At This End [Newspaper Article] — The Kent Stater — 25 October 1939
Polite Pilfering Subject of— At This End Giving away stationary must cost those deluxe inns in New York quite a sum weekly. The Waldorf, Ritz, St. Regis and Pierre's, which furnish costly paper expensively embossed. It is polite pilfering, hard to scotch. * * Thoughts While Strolling: Wonder if our fathers used to run to the gramaphone when they hit a sharp bend in their courting—the way we get along with the radio today. * *• * Movie Piffle: Such camouflage is the billboards for the hand-kissing type of pseudo-nobleman who always show up to become a social affliction. These are, to me, always perfumed pick-thanks who live in rooming houses but who put up showy fronts of high living. This is flikker flinging and we often wonder if it is a horrible actuality. * * * Eriser seems to be the last of the Joe Collich type. More of these loud hat, snappy dressing collegians wouldn't do much harm to the university. * * We ran across a note on Orsen Welles who continues to be a wonder kiddie ...
The Story of the Doors Subject of— Once Overs [Newspaper Article] — The Kent Stater — 25 October 1939
The Story of the Doors Subject of— Once Overs By Virginia Frederick Signals . . , 34, 56, knit one, perl two, hike! That's the kind of technique it takes to get through the atrium into the buildings anymore. Coach Starn ought to give the student body- lessons in running interference so they could get to classes in time. That brilliant thought came to me one day as I stood idly holding up one of the doors leading to the atrium. * * Somebody ought to make a statistical study of the number of people that go through those doors every minute ... or something equally as worth while, and soul stirring. Or they could put up a sign . . . ala Earl Carroll . . . "the most prominent people in Kent go through here every day." Has possibilities don't you think? * *• * Take the minute I stood there, (no cracks about that please) Mickey Dover, the freshman who showed the rest of us up in cheering, hurried through. Woody Barkett sauntered through the mob with that pre-election smile. Smoothie Jeanne...
