B-G Sweeps Elections Landslide Gives Winners 18 Posts, Nu-K 5, U-I 3 By Tom Fitzpatrick In an election landslide reminiscent of the proportions achieved by the Republicans just one week earlier, the Blue and Gold party swept 15 out of 16 candidates into class office and placed three nominees in other elective posts. Leading his ticket in the same* manner as General Eisenhower a week previously, Bill Pike was elected president of the senior class. Neil Milford, Barb Pickering and A1 Korman, elected to the offices of vice president, secretary and treasurer respectively, are also members of the Blue and Gold party. The vote of the women was felt in the junior class election as they banded together to elect woman students to nearly all the class offices. Marcia Hill is the new president of the junior class. She will be assisted by vice president Arlene Duricky, Secretary Jane Miller and treasurer Marion Moser, the lone male. All except Moser, a Nu-K member, were candidates of Blue and G...

From The Files [Newspaper Article] — Daily Kent Stater — 13 November 1952
From The Files By Joe Franko (Fifth in a series) In November 1927, 25 long years ago, the students at Kent had no election bets to pay off; no threat of the draft; no television, and no Pogo. They did however, have little Orphan Annie. Clock golf was introduced to the students that month. Students practicing 10 hours during the six week course earned five points toward a “K.” They practiced on the lawn north of McGilvrey hall, next to the University high school. The Girls formed an “Off-Campus club” which boasted one of the largest enrollments of any organization on campus. However it did not nearly compare with our present “TGIF Let’s Pack And Go Home club.” The student body selected the most All-Round Boy, the most round, ’er All-Round Girl, the Peppiest Girl and the Most Athletic. My selection for each is as follows: All-Round Boy—the fellow who dated girls from Moulton, Lowry and Engleman, all in one week. All-Round Girl —the girls who went out with him. Peppiest Girl—the one se...
Organized Confusion [Newspaper Article] — Daily Kent Stater — 13 November 1952
Organized Confusion By Larry Carpenter Nearly 1500 students paraded to the polls outside Wills gym Tuesday. A large number of these students voted for Council members on ballots that were not only falsely misrepresented, but also sadly lacking in apparent legal respects. The so-called preferential ballot, by which we elect Council members, is as far from being preferential as Pogo is from being President. A true preferential ballot does have a stipulation stating that all candidates must be rated numerically right down to the last lonely name—ours do. A true preferential ballot is tabulated according to one of the following systems; Bucklin; alternative vote; Hallett; or Nanson. Ours are not —as a matter of fact they are tabulated by Hare’s plan of proportional representation. There we have it, a ballot designated as preferential but used according to proportional representation. It really doesn’t sound too bad. It merely seems that we are being harmlessly deceived. But it’s more th...
Treatise On Food [Newspaper Article] — Daily Kent Stater — 13 November 1952
Treatise On Food By “Elsie” (yFood is essential to life. It is also very essential to college students, whether or not we fall in the aforesaid category. The food we are concerned with is that which originates in the several cafeterias we have on campus. There is no praise too high that* we could afford these cafeterias concerning sanitation, facilities, friendliness, or quality. The cooks are excellent and prepare food in a pleasing manner. The help is efficient and courteous. In many cases the manage- ment is above reproach—but, in several very definite cases they are not. There happens to be a difference between what men desire in food, and what women prefer. Obviously this has never been taken into consideration in any dietitian’s handbook, or it wouldn’t have been slighted as severely as it has. A large majority of the male population finds the frills of a cooked dish interesting in design, but highly unnecessary. Women differ in this respect. To men, endive, parsley, etc., are...
Fire And Ice Girls [Newspaper Article] — Daily Kent Stater — 13 November 1952
Fire And Ice Girls By Tom Fitzpatrick An advertising campaign is currently being conducted by one of the large lipstick firms—and I wouldn’t dare say it was Revlon—which may very well change the entire course of domestic relations. The campaign proposes to all the women (and coeds who can read) made of “Fire and Ice.” Shesays the ad, “is a tease and a temptress, and is easily the most exciting woman in all the world.” Does this include all those girls who can dig up the necessary buck for a stick or only some of them? Will some of them be immediately placed in the “terrific” category and others be forced to wear their lipstick as a badge, such as a pledge pin is worn until you are initiated and go active. Active in this case being the “most exciting girls in the world Omega.” ? To return to my first premise though—the one about changing the course of domestic relations —suppose a mere wearing of this lipstick makes these girls the terrific siren type the ad would have all and sundry...
