Watch These States [Newspaper Article] — Daily Kent Stater — 4 November 1952
Watch These States Tonight hundreds of students will gather around radios and television sets and watch the election returns as they come in, state by state, section by section. Eight states with large electoral votes have been tabbed as the “ones to watch” by the experts. These key states and their electoral votes are: Ohio, 25; New York, 45; Texas, 24; Illinois 27; Michigan, 20; Massachusetts, 16; Pennsylvania, 32; and California, 32. According to pre-election opinion the candidate who manages to get the greatest amount of these key votes will easily win the election. Both candidates have claimed large gains in all of these states and are both predicting victory. Even the so-called experts are reluctant to claim either candidate has a margin. It will be interesting to see the results and to compare the trend in these states to the trend of the whole nation.
EDITORIAL VOTE! [Newspaper Article] — Daily Kent Stater — 4 November 1952
EDITORIAL VOTE! You still have a few hours before the deadline. Today, millions of Americans are casting their ballots for the men who have been nominated for public offices. The months of campaigning, weeks of planning, days of rushing and hours of anxiety will be culminated within a few hours when the results of this election are made known to the world. For this one day, the ballot line has replaced the firing line as the most crucial spot on earth. It is now the duty of every eligible citizen to place himself in that ballot line and vote. In 1948, barely half of the total number of eligible voters cast their ballots in the national election. In 1944 only 60% of the people saw the need for voting. Back through the years that same lethargy has blackened every vote total. It is not possible that the American people were disinterested in the results of the elections. A country which has produced such fine records in business, social sciences and military matters could not “not care”...
I LIKE IKE OR ADLAI? WHICH ONE? [Newspaper Article] — Daily Kent Stater — 4 November 1952
I LIKE IKE OR ADLAI? WHICH ONE? (From the Portage County Republican Committee) A revitalized Republican Party in Portage County has established winning ways in elections held since 1948. In the 1950 election for instance, the county was carried for seven of the eight Republican candidates by substantial margins. Only Don Ebright, candidate for governor, failed to carry, and he missed by only 96 votes. In Kent in 1949, the won five of the seven council seats, and the solicitor’s post. In 1951 they won the mayor’s office, the president of the council, and the city solicitor in addition to five of the seven seats in council. In Ravenna, in 1951, Republicans elected the mayor, the treasurer, the auditor, the president of the council, and five of the seven council seats. Almost all of the villages in the county have Republican mayors, elected in 1951. The reason for this success is that voters have had the opportunity to make their “X” marks for some outstanding candidates. You’ll recogn...

Kent Faces Akron Alter BG Defeat By Jim Witzberger The Kent State Flashes will try and get back in their winning ways Friday night when they journey to Akron to play their traditional rivals, the Akron U Zippers. The Kentmen lost their third game of the season to Bowling Green, 44-21, Saturday afternoon. The Falcons had a well rounded offensive attack built around the passing of Bill Lyons and the running of Fred Durig and Roger McKenzie. is now tied with Fred Durig for the all-time scoring record at Bowling Green. Harold Yawberg converted all of the Bowling Green extra points. Artino tried hard in the first half to keep up with Lyons in the passing department. He hit his receivers numerous times only to have them drop the ball. Dick Pitts, who had one of his worst days, was the chief offender in the pass dropping department. The offensive unit led by Norcia and Cullom looked good, but the defense was terrible. The guards and tackles were consistently being trapped. On many occasion...
Spirit? [Newspaper Article] — Daily Kent Stater — 4 November 1952
Spirit? By Jim Witzberger Kent Stater Sports Editor There is nothing more pathetic than the school spirit that the fans and cheerleaders have at a Kent State football game. The spirit at the Ohio U game was terrible. The spirit at the Bowling Green game Saturday was worse. The students blame the cheer-* leaders, the cheerleaders blame the students. I think they are both at fault. The students are afraid to yell because they think other people will think they are sissies. I am beginning to think the only reason that the cheerleaders took up that job is because they get in free. Most of the time when they do go to a game they don’t stay until it is over. In the third quarter of the BG game one of the cheerleaders left, another left in the fourth quarter. At the conclusion there were two cheerleaders left. About once a quarter they will hold a sign which designates their routine of giving the cheer, they are never together. If they have some time one of these days they should practice,...
