some say ... By Nat Floersheimer It's a woman's world after all. No longer will Tessie have to sit at home. Her chance has come. For there will be a Sadie Hawkins day at Kent soon. Sadie, if you recall is the resourceful gal, who got tired of being a wall fiower, and took her pappy's double barrel from the wall, and went out a gunnin'. Yep, she went out and • hooked herself some man. Other gals in the vicinity thought it was a pretty good idea, so they set aside one day a year to follow her example. They did it with only one stipulation—and that " was —whatever they caught on that day, was their Own, and other gals had to look elsewhere. If' you've been following "Lil Abner" in the comic strips you probably noticed that ahe's been having a heck of a time trying to think of a. means -of escape. But then, he may get out of it . . because only Daisy Mae is after him. You Kent fellows have more to worry about . . . for co-eds have been working out on the track for months, and they found...

This Is Now [Newspaper Article] — The Kent Stater — 3 November 1939
This Is Now So I went to the Homecoming game. The crowd started pushing its way throiugh .the stadium gates and no policeman could hold them back. Tickets were being sold at stupendous prices, and no one seemed to complain. After earnestly playing a good game of tackle to get through the ticket line, I started up the cement steps leading to section XY-1006 in the gigantic Kent stadium. Sixty thousand pei*sbns had paid to see this game, and officials watched as standing room was being sold. There was no doubt about it, Kent was initiating its new stadium in good style. Alums who had contributed their share to the gigantic stadium proudly sat in their special cheering section to watch the "younger generation." They could remember when they had fought, written articles, and campaigned for this "dream" stadium. Yes, they could sit joyfully and enjoy the game. Their alma mater "sported" one of the best teams in the country, built by honest practice and good coaching. The Flashes came out...

'Working His Way Through College-Growing Dahlias [Newspaper Article] — The Kent Stater — 3 November 1939
'Working His Way Through CollegeGrowing Dahlias Roses may be red and violets | perhaps are blue, but as far as Delbert Morgan, university senior j from Cuyahoga Falls is concerned, ] dahlias are dollars and mean a col-1 lege education. Starting his experiments with the cultivation of dahlias about six years ago, Morgan who is majoring in biology at Kent, today is a successful dahlia raiser and has financed a college education with the profits he has made from his gardening hoby. At first he did not try anything but simple dahlia cultivation, but later, after his first few successes with the simple cultivation, Morgan began experimenting in cross pollination with the hope of creating something new in the dahlia world. Although his first attempts proved discouraging, Morgan continued his work and through his efforts several new creations have appeared that have brought him unusual recognition from the garden world. One of Morgan's creations in particular, named "Sleepy Hollow," has wo...

Starn Announces Start of Basketball Practice [Newspaper Article] — The Kent Stater — 3 November 1939
Starn Announces Start of Basketball Practice Seven Lettermen Expected to Return; Cagers Face Stiff 23-Game Schedule Coach G. D. Starn greeted 14 candidates for his 1939-40 varsity basketball outfit last Wednesday as the players broke the ice on the current campaign. Lack of publicity of the date has kept the number of candidates down to an absolute minimum but with the addition of varsity gridders who plan to play the court game and other eligible men the squad will probably number 30 within a short time. Letterman Back 4 Seven lettermen from last year's ball club will greatly aid Starn in his hopes for a good season. The freshman outfit of a year ago are also adding a lot of class to the outfit. Joe Price, Sharon, Pa. high grad, seems to be the class of the lot at the present and he will probably see a lot of action during the year. Other promising sophs in elude Bill Decker, center, Harold Andreas, also a center, Art Kirkland, Amsterdam guard, Mike Feduniak, Vernon Heichel, and a ...
Golden Flashes Still Rank Tenth In Ohio Conference Standings [Newspaper Article] — The Kent Stater — 3 November 1939
Golden Flashes Still Rank Tenth In Ohio Conference Standings Although Kent's victory over Hobart looks good on the record book, it did little to raise the Flashs es out of the inglorious tenth position which they have held the past two weeks in Official Ohio conference standings. Outlook Dark While two out of the three remaining games on the schedule, are conference tilts, there seems to be little hope that the Starn-coached outfit can lift its position. BaldwinWallace, winner over Kent in last year's homecoming tilt, has a poorer conference record than the Flashes but will be overwhelming favorites in the Nov. 18 tussle between the two teams. The Yellow Jacket's record was greatly enhanced by the 8-7 win over Western Reserve two weeks ago. Bowling Green, this week's homecoming opponent will be topheavy favorites to win as its record to date shows four wins and one loss. The lone defeat came at the hand of Capital, 7-6. Reserve Next Week Next week, the golden-clads embark for Clevel...

BETWEEN the GOAL POSTS [Newspaper Article] — The Kent Stater — 3 November 1939
BETWEEN the GOAL POSTS By George Fleischer Local fans and returning grads will see the final home performance of four of Kent's finest athletes. . Louis Cardinal, veteran quartedback, Swede Netzen, versatile halfback, Don Miller, center and George Mollica, guard, are the four gridders who play their last home football game this week. With only these four lettermen being lost, it does look pretty fair for the Golden Flashes next year. Starn can start smiling after the Baldwin-Wallace fray in Berea, Nov. 18. The schedule makersi really added a bit of a problem when they placed the Bee-Gees, Reserve, and B-W games the last three weeks of the season. Wonder what the last three games will be next year. Team Suffers Th injury mania of the goldenclad boys this year has been per- plexing to everyone. Many things could cause it. Lack of training, failure to protect one's body in the clinches or perhaps its just because the other boys play too rough. In every tilt this year at least one, and ...
