Take It On The Chin [Newspaper Article] — The Kent Stater — 6 November 1939
Take It On The Chin A COLUMN recently pointed out that it doesn't take a good man to criticize. Further, it said there are many good and worthwhile things on campus; we must expect bad things to crop up along with the good. In addition, it said we are told not to expect too rapid progress. We believe this. But, we should remember that every knock can be a boost. A good, honest knock keeps one alert and on his toes. If persons aren't criticized once in a while, they become smug and self-satisfied. Criticism makes for growth—take it on the chin.—CP —K—
Judgment Will Be Made [Newspaper Article] — The Kent Stater — 6 November 1939
Judgment Will Be Made NOW that the smoke from the heated election campaign has cleared away, Kent Staters turn their thoughts to the opportunity of accompanying their team to the Kent-Re-serve game. Last year, 1400 tickets were sold, filling a 20-car train chartered for the migration to John Carroll. Those who went on this excursion remember many things about it. These may be good or bad. The number of students who went on this tour reflected the spirit and backing Kent State can give its team. The bad things that threatened to do away with future excursions, should also be kept in mind. Have a good time. That's one big reason for the migration. But, everything we do on this tour will be watched. Kent State will be judged accordingly.—CP —K—
It's A Cleaner Place [Newspaper Article] — The Kent Stater — 6 November 1939
It's A Cleaner Place THE Kent Stater would like to commend the students and anyone who helped to make the hallways a cleaner place. Last year, the condition of the halls especially near the mailboxes was deplorable. The receptacle next to the mailboxes helps the situation a great deal. If you get something via your mailboxes which you do not want to keep, put it in the wastebasket.—CP —K— Little Alfred Holbrook college, with only 65 students enrolled, has a football team. Couple of weeks ago they fought the Kenyon collegians to a standstill. —K—'Blackout in student interest in University of Oklahoma politics was evident'the other night when only two of over 3000 sophomores attended a special soph political meeting . . . the pay-off came when one student averred that he attended because he likd to listen to recorded P. A. music.
Letters to the Editor [Newspaper Article] — The Kent Stater — 6 November 1939
Letters to the Editor Editor's note: Following campus discussion concerning the recent political campaign, the Stater has received complaints concerning the manner in which ..the ..elections were conducted. One letter to the editor will be printed today and other letters received will be printen as space permits. There is but one restriction, and that is that all letters must be signed—JW. Dear Editor: During my last two years as a student at Kent State high I heard very often the politics at Kent State university being referred to as "rotten." I thought these remarks were just coming from poor losers, but today I really saw Kent State university politics, and they really are "rotten." Spending my freshman year at Ohio State, I didn't become very interested in school politics; so today I was surprised to find that college politics could be so dirty. Before I go any further I had better explain why things seem this way to me. Thinking as we are taught in classes that it is our part a...
Kent Kampustry ... [Newspaper Article] — The Kent Stater — 6 November 1939
Kent Kampustry ... By Earl Vacariu After dismissing the idea of going into partnership with Swindler Eifort in taking over the Library and making it into a Bingo Palace, I began wondering where Ethan Frome bought his shirt. According to my program, it wore him very well for 20 years. Anyway, it was shirt tale well acted. Personal to Corky Porea: In your letter to Bill Lloyd a feW weeks ago you said that everything a girl wears serves a purpose. What's practical about those knee-length stockings? . . . Speaking of stockings, I agree with whoever said, "the silk-worm would probably turn if it could see some of the legs it covers."
SOME Seese Firing ... [Newspaper Article] — The Kent Stater — 6 November 1939
SOME Seese Firing ... DING DONG—THE DIE IS CAST Way last Thursday morn, long before dawn's grey mists have fully disappeared ... when countless white crosses were swiftly drying on and about the campus ... a dark, gruesome figure slinked into the atrium . . . with an unsteady and knock-kneed gait, it walked toward the partially assembled election booths ... to this he gave nary a heed but boisterously assailed the election board with "I want to vote" ... it was exactly 30 seconds to eight . . . five seconds later he had produced his activities card . . . with 22 seconds to go, Gordon Hostettler was able to imagine a slight resemblance of features . . . despite the mirage of bars and hoosegow numbers ... at the 17-second mark Virginia Fredericks had found his name in the potentious list . . . two seconds later, "mysterious" began to check off his choices ... as only four seconds were left to go, the figure walked to the ballot box and made ready to drop the ballot . . . but hold a mi...
Social Whirlwind ... [Newspaper Article] — The Kent Stater — 6 November 1939
Social Whirlwind ... I've just gotten back from seeing the play. I saw parts of it three times, others only twice and have no claim to being a critic, there are things even I wonder about. Why did doors have to close without manpower? Why did Mattie Silvers have such a tough time breaking the pickle dish? Why didn't the geranium grow or die in 20 years? . . . and why the heck didn't Ethan Frome take his wife out behind the barn to shoot her rather than allow her to become a hypochondriac? To be sure, the first couple of questions are about minor distractions, but then a lot of little, things can leave an audience rather dissatisfied! The KAPPA MU KAPPAS strengthened their ranks when they added eight new pledges to their chapter. They include Bob Zimmerman, Bob Mathews, Jim Buzulencia, Ed Chesleski, Frank Percoco, Don Searle, John Mauer, and Ralph Braden. That old and trite saying "There's no rest for the weary" certainly rings true around these parts. Know for one thing that differe...
Old Howitzer is Silent On Big Anniversary [Newspaper Article] — The Kent Stater — 6 November 1939
Old Howitzer is Silent On Big Anniversary By Mickey Dover Today marks the 18th birthday of a campus landmark, and it isn't Ernie Williams. The six-inch Howitzer cannon, relic of the world war, was placed on the campus of what was then Kent Normal College, and dedicated just 18 years ago today. This landmark, which is gazedon in awe by freshmen, ignored by dignified sophomores, used as a basis for slightly shady traditions by juniors, and revered by tired seniors, is covered with initials of Kent students, past and present. One weather-beaten insignia reveals -'Bob and Jean, '23." The occasion of the dedication ceremonies was a day set aside by President Warren G. Harding and described as "a day of prayer and thanksgiving for the victory which God has recently given to the forces of liberty and democracy, and in supplication for the success of the gathering for the limitation of armaments convention in Washington." The scarred Howitzer, grim reminder of the tragidies of the last war,...

Wilma Wallflower Ventures To The Outer Male World [Newspaper Article] — The Kent Stater — 6 November 1939
Wilma Wallflower Ventures To The Outer Male World By Virginia Fredericks Lo . . . the poor wallflower. Things are coming to a pretty pass on the dear old campus on the hill. When gals have to have a day set aside for them so they can get a man . . . well, it looks pretty bad. Of course this Sadie Hawkins stuff may not be what it's cracked up to be . . . maybe some of the girls will be too bashful to take advantage of it. (Don't be silly—you know they'll jump at the chance). But on the other hand — something has to. be done —these gals just can't sit at home forever ... or can they? It is reported that even the administration is worried about the dating situation on the campus . . . they are afraid that some of the girls will develop complexes and become psychological problems if something isn't done pretty soon. Social dancing has wonderful possibilities for Wilma the Wallflower, but somehow the fellows just don't take advantage of it. Thpy just go up there in droves and stand and w...
