Constitution Given SC’s Tentative OK [Newspaper Article] — Daily Kent Stater — 2 October 1952
Constitution Given SC’s Tentative OK Under the leadership of President Bill Berzinec, Student council spent their first meeting of the year discussing the new Student Government constitution which has been pending for a number of years. The body of the constitution minus the by-laws was finally completed during the summer and won favorable opinions from all council members.. Bob Seaman asked that each member of council be given a copy of the constitution and time to study it. \lthough the group was on the verge of approving it immediately they decided to give it one more week of thought before giving their okay. The next step will be to write the by-laws and then to obtain faculty approval of the document. When and if then a complete constitution is approved by council and the faculty it will be submitted to the student body for ratification. Council’s one action of the day was to change the composition of Elections committee due to the new United Independent party. Mary Ellen Cross...

County Elections Board Solves Voting Problems [Newspaper Article] — Daily Kent Stater — 2 October 1952
County Elections Board Solves Voting Problems If you are eligible to vote in the coming presidential election do you know where you are to go to cast your ballot? In previous elections, much confusion has resulted from students not knowing their precinct. This year the University is spon-* soring a program to help students find the answers to their questions on proper voting procedure. Walter Curtis, clerk of the Portage County JBoard of Elections will be in 206 U. on Tuesday, October 7, from 10 a.m. to 12 noon and will talk to any student who is in doubt about his voting status.

WKSU-FM Begins Fourth Year On Air At Kent [Newspaper Article] — Daily Kent Stater — 2 October 1952
WKSU-FM Begins Fourth Year On Air At Kent By Pat Boehmer To most people not connected in some way with radio, journalism, or other related fields, WKSU-FM is just something you hear of once in awhile, mostly in the STATER or if you happen to know a radio enthusiast. However, to some fifty people who spend a good deal of time in six rooms on third floor of Kent hall, WKSU-FM is a very real and prominent part of the KSU campus. Since 1949, when programs were broadcast only on campus, WKSU has grown into a community service covering approximately 15 miles and airing its varied programs some 5 hours and 45 minutes a day, five days a week. Starting their third year.on WKSU are three musical programs: “Rhythm Rambles,” “Musical Chats,” and “Dinner Hour.” ‘ Rhythm Rambles” is the half hour disc jockey program handled by the staff while “Musical Chats” features classical music and commentary, Jim Glynn conducts the semi-classical show “Dinner Hour.” Other local programs are; Gus Kessler’s G...
EDITORIALS First Impressions [Newspaper Article] — Daily Kent Stater — 2 October 1952
EDITORIALS First Impressions First impressions are a mighty important thing. Through the efforts of the Freshman Week committee and the student leaders, newcomers to the KSU campus were given a very favorable first impression last week. Plans for the week*of freshman indoctrination and orientation were begun last February, and continued to the day the frosh arrived at Kent. Each new student received a card during September, assigning him to a group coinciding with his intended major. Sixty such groups, ranging in size from fifteen to forty, were directed through the maze of freshman foibles by 135 student leaders. Through the efforts f those upperclassmen, the “Class of ’56” came through their first week of college with flying colors. Maybe they did too good a job of stressing cooperation and planning. For the first time in two years the frosh topped the sophomores in the pushball contest, and disposed of “customs” a month ahead of schedule. Nevertheless, the students and faculty me...
Mall Has Face Lifted [Newspaper Article] — Daily Kent Stater — 2 October 1952
Mall Has Face Lifted By Louis Paskoff Students back in Kent for the new year who have been curious about all the work going on behind Merrill hall might be interested to know that the workers aren’t too sure themselves. They are members of the campus maintenance crew who are using spare time between their regular jobs to help on a project that has been in the dreaming and planning stages for many years. Seeing these men engaged in their “extra-curri-cular activity” will make students realize how much work must be done in a school this size. At least, that is the opinion of Larry Wooddell, K.S.U. maintenance head. The spare time work will finish the park in time for Homecoming and it is expected that the trees, shrubs and grass will be taken care of before the winter. Actual work was begun only last week, but the curved curbing was laid by the WPA years before this time. Plans call for a pat- terned sandstone terrace around the fountain with small stone benches on three sides. Two lo...
Whistling Through Dixie [Newspaper Article] — Daily Kent Stater — 2 October 1952
Whistling Through Dixie By Bruce Limpus At the end of the spring quarter I took a hitch-hiking tour of the south. Dixie has been written off as illiterate, backwards, decadent and corrupt with a certain amount of justification. But, in the art of prevarication I have seen no part of the country that quite equals the gulf states. The people of Louisiana, Mississippi, and Alabama are both great hunters and liars. The male population can be found either hunting, fishing, or lying about hunting or fishing. For instance, there is a certain mythical lake in northwestern Louisiana where one can catch bass that have no scales. If you are enough of a sucker to ask how this is possible, you will be told that there are so many bass in this lake that they scale each other swimming in the limited space. In Mississippi I ran across a story about an unusual coon dog that could be switched to a bird dog at the command of his master. And that’s not all, this dog had a unique method of locating the c...

As The Backs Go So Goes The Team By Bill Miller Ever since the game of football was in its toddling stage, the boys who know the sport have been saying, “You’ve got to have a good backfield to have a good team.” And that statement goes double for an intricate, Split-T offense such as Coach Trevor Rees has installed at Kent.
