WPA, Huge Shovels Busy Excavating for New Field [Newspaper Article] — The Kent Stater — 30 October 1939
WPA, Huge Shovels Busy Excavating for New Field Work on the university's long dreamed of football field got under way late last week as WPA workers began excavation on the former driving course along E. Summit street. Huge steam shovels and trucks were brought here last week by contractors as officials counciled plans to complete the field by next fall in preparation for the 1940 football season. Unofficial reports have the field in tip top shape by mid summer although there will not be a stadium by that time since additional appropriations have not been made to. cover the cost. After the field has been well graded the workers will begin on the sodding. Built with finances furnished by the WPA grant, the field will be located near E. Summit street. If present plans are followed when the new stadium is built, Kent will have one of the most beautiful and most complete athletic fields in the state. Equipment in the basement of the stadium and the roads leading to the field will be outs...

'One-Eyed' Connelly Frat Men Crash Gates of Prom [Newspaper Article] — The Kent Stater — 30 October 1939
'One-Eyed' Connelly Frat Men Crash Gates of Prom By Clyde Friar One-Eyed Connelly would have rolled over in his grave, if he were dead, and stared unforgivingly at the group of distinguished KSU frat men who by all intents and purpose attempted to steal his honors as the best gate-crasher in history. The stories you hear are really true. For the first time in the years of all co-ed dances at this institution of higher learning, the portals were crashed. Unsuspected by gate-keepers at the Off-Cam-pus Women's club dance, buxom blondes, shapely brunettes and personality-plus red-heads in the persons of Bud Treat, Bud LeChaix, Pete Smith, Roman Wojno, Howahd Resseger, Myron Lawrence, and Bernard Wilson meandered through the closely guarded gates and began to fox-trot and waltz to the recorded music of the nation's name bands. Especially popular to the assembled ladies was the duo formed by Treat, No. 1 varsity racqueteer, and Wojno, swimmer extraordinary. The color combinations were ter...
Trustees Approve Outdoor Theatre [Newspaper Article] — The Kent Stater — 30 October 1939
Trustees Approve Outdoor Theatre Plans for the outdoor theatre and the addition of more tennis courts were approved at the monthly meeting of the university board of trustees held here last Saturday.

Leebrick, president of the university left by train for Chicago to see PWA officials about problems concerning McGilvrey hall. He plans too return Tuesday morning.
Theatre Ticket Problem [Newspaper Article] — The Kent Stater — 30 October 1939
Theatre Ticket Problem The forthcoming "Ethan 'Frome" homecoming production will again bring to life the ticket problem which has been :N so acute in homecomings of the past. Each year the manager of the theatre turns over 500 tickets to the Registrar to sell to returning grads. The usual total sale of these tickets amounts to approximately 35 or 40. The remaining tickets are returned to the manager the evening of the play too late for redistribution. The tickets remain there and Friday night finds hundreds of choice seats empty. Many students cannot get seats and must remain away from the affair. The Stater wonders why the allotment of seats for alumni, is. so ridiculously high.— CF • - ■
Cheerleaders are Important [Newspaper Article] — The Kent Stater — 30 October 1939
Cheerleaders are Important A recent letter to the editor brought up the subject of cheerleaders and the situation regarding them on this campus. It is true that the cheerleaders have little or no equipment, no support, and less attention. If the students want cheerleaders at all, they should do something for them. Friday's game with Findlay showed that the students can cheer loudly. The cheerleaders are doing their best under the circumstances. Why can't some group on the campus outfit the cheerleaders? We also think the cheerleaders should be chosen for their ability. Perhaps, a pep rally at the beginning of the year would be the proper time to have try-outs for cheerleaders.—CP —K—
Hurrah! 'School Spirit' [Newspaper Article] — The Kent Stater — 30 October 1939
Hurrah! 'School Spirit' University students may well take a lesson in "School Spirit" from the youngsters at the Training school. Their rally Wednesday night prior to the Kent Roosevelt game and the final results of the game are splendid examples of what honest-to-goodness school spirit really can do. Much has been written and said concerning "School Spirit," but student reaction has not even been luke-warm. Yet they are able and willing to criticize and condemn the football team for poor showings. Last Friday morning the team left for Geneva, New York, to play Hobart college. There were no students on hand to give them a send-off, no one to show them that the school was behind them. This was ample proof that no one particularly cared whether the team won or not. If the students take the "don't-care," attitude, the team has the same right. Remember, the players are on the field to represent our university and its students. To imbue the team with fighting-spirit, let's show them that...
Letters to the Editor [Newspaper Article] — The Kent Stater — 30 October 1939
Letters to the Editor Bremen, Sept. 30, 1939 Dear Edna Eisen, Strange indeed it seems to be, sitting here, instead of teaching my classes in Kent! Much as I miss my students and friends in Kent, and distressed as I am about the extra trouble I am causing the administration —I was grateful to Dr. Leebrick for cabeling me that he is making temporary arrangements for my classes —I am grateful that if I had to be caught in a war I was caught here, with members of my own family. Judging by my experience during the World War I think these past four weeks have been easier for me here than they would have been if I had managed to escape to Denmark and were now waiting among strangers for possible passage to the U. S. A., or even if I had already been in the U. S. A. Everything is running smoothly here. People quickly made their adjustments to war-time conditions, such as food rationing and permits for buying clothing. I thing we all appreciate our meals more than in ordinary times and if yo...
Having Talked It Over [Newspaper Article] — The Kent Stater — 30 October 1939
Having Talked It Over Better preparation for the marriage career was advocated by senior and freshmen alike when quizzed yesterday morning on the practicability of an informative course on marriage and its problems. A representative portion of the student body when asked "Do you think an informative course on marriage and its problems should be a required course in the university curriculum?" gave its approval almost to a person. Opinion on the matter was strong and but one individual disagreed with the majority. Ralph Wands, senior, thought the idea was one ; of the best. Answering the question emphatically, Wands said, "Absolutely. It should be required more so than the Deans courses. It would be more beneficial." The course, it was generally agreed, should be offered as a lecture course, requiring no recitation. The course should merely present constructive suggestions on married life. John Hanlin, sophomore, and the lone dissenter didn't think dealing with human personality coul...

SOME Seese Firing ... Now that this, the seventh week of school is on its way, and all ballyhoo about the anniversary of this and the tradition of that is terminating . , . this old campus will become fascinated by one of the most ancient of old games—politics. Shall we be more specific and call it a nice quiet game of "mudslinging" . . . Recently two mixed breeds were vociferous in their expressions of alleged infallibility in weeding out crooked politics . . . especially those following in the overcrowded footsteps of Grandpa Bd&amp;ala who last year was seen crawling on hands and knees towards the "professor poll" ballot box to stuff in a few extras . . . one cross breed said tp the other . . . dose Russians and zat big peeg Heetler, they sure vould learn mooch about dis ting, called trench digging . . here at Kent Stopt university it vill be yust like der in 'urope . . . does big lumpbergers vhat say der name is the Pooh and Bold and the Rentonian parties vill be dn oopo...

True Blue Tessies Ready To Prey on Joe College [Newspaper Article] — The Kent Stater — 30 October 1939
True Blue Tessies Ready To Prey on Joe College Hey, fellas! Better grab your six shooters and head for the hills! Rumor has it that Kent is to have a Sadie Hawkins celebration. Have you noticed the gals practicing these long distance sprints? And some of them are getting pretty good at it, too. Sadie Hawkins, as if you didn't know . . . was the gal who initiated tne practice of having one day a year when the girls could go out and do a little chasing on their own. Whatever they caught that day was their own, and no trespassing please. Their prey was invariably one of the poor unprotected males and they were hooked to stay. About two weeks ago a large piece of grey cardboard went up on the bulletin board —a . petition by the forgotten males of the campus for a Sadie Hawkins day. Several prominent faculty names were on the list ... but there was a peculiar similarity in their handwriting and those of the other petitioners. The girls in school went by . . . hesitated and snickered. Sou...

Campus Romeos Grab What They Can While They May [Newspaper Article] — The Kent Stater — 30 October 1939
Campus Romeos Grab What They Can While They May Nonchalant men are gone forever from Kent State university. The era of the anthropoidal "cave man" attitude is over. No longer can the men be too choosy about the date they get, nor can I. M. A. Mann, Jr., call Miss Suresweet an Jiour before an impending hay , ride and expect her to crash through with what was the formerly common "wait'll I change my clothes, and I'll be with you." Now the conversation is like this, —"When is your next night free, Miss Suresweet? (I hope it is before next Christmas). "Oh, so you can't see me before leap year? Well, may I please send you my card for January 1, 1940 at 6:45 p. m.? ; "Sure, I'll drive out to Nantucket, a mere 184 and two eighths miles, to pick you up and drop your trunks at school after the vacation. Thanks ever so much for being so considerate.'', Mann, Jr. wipes the perspiration from his brows and hangs up the receiver as he gets up with a seri- ous frown on his fairly average profile a...
SOCIAL WHIRL WIND [Newspaper Article] — The Kent Stater — 30 October 1939
SOCIAL WHIRL WIND By Nat Floersheimer Tonight although I expected to be in Chicago . . . and didn't quite make it . . .1 did have one of the most pleasant evenings of my college . . . career?????? The DELTS and GAMMA SIGMA PHl's exchanged seven members apiece for dinner. At about 6p. m. the DELTS arrived and after introductions went round ... seven of us were taken back to the fraternity house. v . The dinner was grand, the decorations clever, and everyone seemed to be having as nice a time as I. However, the thing I most enjoyed was that I got to know several fellows I never knew, I did hear some songs and I will be able to tell my grandchildren that once I ate in a fraternity cellar. Ready for Grads The TRI-SIGS will hold their annual homecoming luncheon Satur- day noon in the Brady. Actives, pledges, and alumnae, numbering approximately 75, will attend the BG-Kent football game following the luncheon. Guests will be presented with flowers at the luncheon. Peg Carper and Peg Willi...
