Drive Aims At Retaining Loan Grant [Newspaper Article] — Kent State University Summer News — 6 August 1959
Drive Aims At Retaining Loan Grant A group of Kent State university alumni are battling with their time, talents, and energies to keep 193 good but needy students from losing their opportunity to get a college education. The University has on deposit a check for $139,500 which it received under the terms of the National Defense Education act. It was the largest grant made to an Ohio school. The grant is to be used for loans to good but needy students. The maximum loan per year at KSU is $BOO, so the grant would provide maximum loans for 193 students next year. However, the Act states that the receiving institution must add one ninth of its own funds to each grant received. This means that KSU must raise $15,500 if it is to use the entire grant. In the event the entire $15,500 is not raised, the University will receive a proportionate amount of the raised sum. Regardless of the amount collected, it will be matched with nine times the amount, up to the $139,500 figure. According to an...

31 Students Combine High School, College Work A select group of Ohio high-schoob students can say "this is where I came in” to certain college courses. During the past 18 months at KSU 31 gifted youngsters have successfully combined college courses with their high school programs. And, without exception, they have more than met the challenge academically. Just how well they have done can be seen in a report compiled by Dr. Robert I. White, Jr., University vice president for academic affairs. His study shows the selected group —mostly juniors and seniors, with a sprinkling of sophomores-have compiled an overall grade average of 3.53 out of a possible 4.0 in college courses. Altogether, they have taken 367 quarter hours of college credit in 23 different courses.

Most of the course work has been in mathematics and chemistry, although some have studied foreign langua...
Library Gallery Shows Bruce Rogers Exhibit [Newspaper Article] — Kent State University Summer News — 6 August 1959
Library Gallery Shows Bruce Rogers Exhibit A World Bible is the focal point of the exhibit of the works of Bruce Rogers, printer, on display in the University Library gallery this week and next. Rogers has been described as a creative artist, a skilled craftsman, a painstaking master of every technical detail whose works contain an elusive "other” quaky which cannot be described. It is almost as if he were working another dimension, doing with type more than it was thought possible to do. When asked how he was able to produce so many beautiful books, he replied that it was through "steady work” and "drudgery over mechanical details.” During his career, more than four hundred books were produced with him as the designer. He has recevied many honors. His printer’s emblem can be seen on a panel of a pair of bronze doors in the Library of Congress and as a decoration at Enoch Lratt Free Library, Baltimore. In 1948 he was awarded the gold Medal of the American Academy of Arts and Letters...

Welders began expanding the upper half of the goals from their present 18 feet, 6 inches to 23 feet, 4 inches in accordance with 1959 NCAA football rules.

Graduate Students Study Physical Fitness Problems If you were asked, "What do students do in a physical education workshop?” what would you reply?
