Large Pep Rally Tomorrow Night Bonfire and Modern Dancing In Cheerleader’s Spirit Plans Kent State university is going to have a pep rally tomorrow nighf.

Better Promotion [Newspaper Article] — The Kent Stater — 8 November 1939
Better Promotion The university Homecoming luncheons that were planned last week should lead to better ones next year. One Homecoming luncheon materialized. This indicates that they were not planned in sufficient time to warrent success. These dinners can be a lot of fun and well attended. More efficient promotion can contribute to this. We also suggest that undergraduates be invited to attend.—CP —K—
Editorial Notes [Newspaper Article] — The Kent Stater — 8 November 1939
Editorial Notes The bushes that have been planted around the administration building will help to do away with the paths across the lawn in front of Merrill hall. After an assembly has started, why not designate someone to close the doors so that the attention of the audience can be entirely given to the speaker on the platform? Is it possible to put a clock somewhere on the front campus? It would be a help to many persons. Fred Waring recently wrote a song for Kent State. It might pay to have the music department investigate. The Wednesday night HPE dances are a good means of relaxation. More students should take advantage of them. —K—
Come at Last [Newspaper Article] — The Kent Stater — 8 November 1939
Come at Last Sadie Hawkins day has come at last. The girls on the campus can do the most toward making this a success. If every girl sits back and lets the next one be the "bold 'em," the dance will not be the event it should be. Get your date early, girls. This is a good time to get that "long awaited" date with that special boy. If you decide not to date, ask the stag boys to dance. They don't make pretty wallflowers. Besides, we will all have more fun. It has been suggested that students dress in hill-billy clothes, or any costume that will add to the atmosphere of the dance. Also, the girls might wear pigtails and cotton dresses to class today.—CP —K—
Clear Thinking [Newspaper Article] — The Kent Stater — 8 November 1939
Clear Thinking The recent election showed that Kent State students exercise their right to vote. It was a record-breaking election. It also showed that when students want to be alert and notice things, they can be. An example of this might be the clear thinking (or just plain campaigning to some) used by the various candidates. Such phrases as "freshmen want a new deal" and a "new queen" are indicative of this.—CP
Letters to the Editor [Newspaper Article] — The Kent Stater — 8 November 1939
Letters to the Editor Dear Editor, Thirty alumni of KSTT were rude* ly shown the "Homecoming Welcome," which one member of the faculty evidently believes in displaying, upon reaching the ill-fated football game Saturday afternoon. That group of 30 was the only departmental or academic gathering which could successfully attract enough former students and spirit to hold a Homecoming luncheon. It was the journalism alumni, a group of some of the most loyal university boosters. The luncheon, that part of the program successful, seemed worthy enough to attract Dr. Leebrick and one or two persons making reservations for the unsucessful Varsity K . luncheon. It was a distinctly alien atmosphere which greeted them as they arrived at the football field. Prof. Rogers, in his pseudo-authorative capacity, had forced the journalism frosh, who were so trustingly saving seats for the group to abandon their efforts. Thus the group was allowed to stand behind the west goal posts for the game. I heli...
Up-town Lowdown [Newspaper Article] — The Kent Stater — 8 November 1939
Up-town Lowdown Notes of a columnist's girl Wednesday—Mr. K. —They have repainted that beer sign in Akron that you made the crack about . . . Dick Firth has been showing his yo-yo talents in the Atrium ... Ed Zink had a beaut from the home section over the weekend . . . The last issue of the Duchess ribbed your column by sticking up for the mudslinging type - - they say there is room for such a column - - oh, open the window while I sneer. As long as we are on the Duchess, we see where they picked up your prediction of Bob Chester however they say he was patterned after Glenn Miller. We checked and found by Chester's declaration that he has not patterned his band after anyone, but has been helped by Tommy Dorsey . . . Les Morato dropped in to tell us that the Alpha Phi Beta fraternity had about 50 Homecomers . . . We saw Marty Kovilik and Tom Turano over the weekend. Both talked of seeing you at the Reserve-Kent game this Saturday . . . Johnny and Skip Armour were up for the footbal...
Newspaper Movies Subject of— The Other Side [Newspaper Article] — The Kent Stater — 8 November 1939
Newspaper Movies Subject of— The Other Side Motion picture producers, authors of pot-boiler dime novels and putter-onners of many radio skits have lots of fun with their presentations of sterotyped fellows whom they chase all over creation doing anything and everything and whom they label: "newspaper reporters." These slightly exaggerated accounts usually describe the newspaper reporter as a handsome, football-player shouldered 24-year-old Don Juan; he is clothed in a snazzy reversable, applies matches to cigarettes with the most dexterous of man-about-townishness and wears tilted at a most picturesque and rakish angle, a hat - - from under which a crisp, black curl moistly peeps. * *• * This gay, romantic bit of nonsense dashes here and there rescuing blond honies from fates not quite as bad as starvation, exposing Big Town's political bosses, niping gigantic swindles in the bud, shooting it out with law defying gangsters, solving thrilling, chilling mysteries and saving whole citi...
society ... . . . On Dancing . . . Bud LeChaix's Jacket . . . Scared of Lloyd [Newspaper Article] — The Kent Stater — 8 November 1939
society ... . . . On Dancing . . . Bud LeChaix's Jacket . . . Scared of Lloyd by Nat Floersheimer / As I write this, I begin to think back over last weekend and its homecomings. The final "s" on the word homecoming was put there on purpose. There were two groups who celebrated their short return to college. One came to get some of that school spirit, and the other came just for the spirits. Everyone seemed to have a good 4 time and few seemed put out by the lack of space at the dance. Don't know how you felt, but once I had a queer sensation when I put my foot down on the floor and didn't find six other feet there first. And, I was startled to find that I could pick it up without shaking off another half dozen. But that only happened once, so the evening wasn't unusual. Speaking of dancing and dances, through all this kidding, and "farm talk," you've undoubtedly gathered that there will be a dance in Wills gym tonight. Seriously speaking, it is sponsored by this paper for YOU. Kyle ...

When any of her friends come to see her and she attempts to tell them of her plight, her captors convince them that she is insane. Finally, the...
