Kent Karousal [Newspaper Article] — The Kent Stater — 10 November 1939
Kent Karousal By Bill Lloyd On a campus that is remarkably free from tradition, Sadie Hawkins day is a twentieth century creation that should be made into a yearly institution. Aside from the field piece, or howitzer, and the seal in front of the memorial arch, Kent has nothing to mention with awe to the incoming freshmen. Here things get into a pleasant groove and stay there, our predecessors apparently never felt the need for those intangible somethings that are known as traditions. Jt isn't every day that theffair lassies get a chance to escort their long sought suppressed desire to a dance. On an impromptu basis, the committee did a good job this year, but for the future, we should be better organized. Here is a suggestion or two that would assist greatly in the general funfest. First of all, on the day appointed, any man in school, in love or not, is honor bound to go to the frolic with the first female who can catch him and ask him. Secondly, none of the many campus love birds...
Kent Coeds Can Keep Warm With Winter Wear [Newspaper Article] — The Kent Stater — 10 November 1939
Kent Coeds Can Keep Warm With Winter Wear Now that winter is nearly here, it's time the girls paused to consider a wardrobe which will turn the iciest blasts. For the past few weeks, the discussion concerning knee-length socks has been going on about the school. Although they may keep you nice and warm girls, remember that they're never, never! proper unless worn with your skirt at least one-half inch above the knee; and with legs that are definitely not on the chubby side. Newest idea in designing is embroidering names on the cuffs, or telephone numbers and home addresses on the legs. Skating skirts .are undoubtedly the very things to wear with your knee-lengths. They are short enough and also provide the necessary warmth. You can buy them in heavy wool, gored or butterflypleated. Gay contrasting colors in rayon are used for lining and "old winter wind" has a hard time blowing through. Jackets for Classroom Hooded chubbie jackets are helping the cardigan out this winter. They come ...

some say ... [Newspaper Article] — The Kent Stater — 10 November 1939
some say ... By Nat Floersheimer Kent, the ' tradition conscious university missed' another chance. Last homecoming merchants flew flags df hlue and gold to welcome the , alumni to their reunion. It was a university party. We were hosts, and they were our graduates. But our blue hnd gold didn't flutter in the for them. .... If we do have a flag, it was probably in hibernation with the moth balls. Maybe our- alumni beat a path down town in order to find a bit of college color, &gt; Maybe! \ * *- ♦ Though tradition and custom differ, there is a similarity. It might be true to say that it-is a custom pf larger colleges to follow the football team to other campuses to cheer them to victory. " ■ tSince we can't build traditions, why wouldn't it be possible to make a habit of having at least one or two migrations a year. Certainly a train ride with a group of students is fun. A football game with an exciting audience is quite a sport. Putting them together . . . you have a "swell"...

Sue Hastings Show Here Wednesday [Newspaper Article] — The Kent Stater — 10 November 1939
Sue Hastings Show Here Wednesday j Marionettes, those whimsical, j fascinating animated figures that cavort at the command of a handi'ul of cleverly manipulated strings, are to be presented at Kent State University, November 15, under the auspices of the Kindergarten-Pri-paary club. There will be two programs: one arranged for the younger group to include the popular play "At the Wishing Well" followed by a marionette extravaganza; the other play an elaborate Oriental production, "Sinbad the Sailor" followed by a group of re-$ yue numbers. Await Curtain These little actors are all packed in their suit cases waiting to be awakened from their dreamless sleep and to live their little lives on the stage of the tiny theatre. And how ardently they do live! They perform the most intricate dance steps, ride bicycles and even indulge in hysterics just like their .foolish prototypes in real life. The Puppet Follies sparkle with the sort of humor that brings chuckles from the grown-ups and shr...

"My Pappy Invented That 'Loop Game" -- Says Weeping Joe [Newspaper Article] — The Kent Stater — 10 November 1939
"My Pappy Invented That 'Loop Game" -- Says Weeping Joe "Now it was during the off battle hours of the first battle of Bull Run that my grandpa got the idea for the first game of basketball," says Joe Begala, Kent's jovial wrestling coach. "My grandpa saw a wagon which had been blown up, and one wheel was hanging on a tree and there were a lot of cannon balls laying around. So my grandpa got the idea of throwing the cannon balls through the wagon wheel. This was too easy for men like grandpa in those days, so they hung the wagon wheel on a 60-foot cliff. Now my grandpa was a southern general and a gentleman too; one point was given for making a basket and two were given for shooting a Yankee, and grandpa was high point man for that year." Joe thinks that this fellow out west who claims that he invented the game of basketball by using peach baskets really got the idea out of a history book that told how the southern gentlemen like Joe's grandpa spent their time during the off fightin...

BETWEEN the GOAL POSTS [Newspaper Article] — The Kent Stater — 10 November 1939
BETWEEN the GOAL POSTS By George Fleischer Migration plans are now com-] plete and all is ready for the big game with Reserve. At least, we hope all is ready. Students know that they are ready, but most of them are worried about the team. Let's put these worries away and bank on the Flashes to come through. Undoubtedly, Kent is the underdog, even in the minds of students. What say we toss that idea out the window, and make the trip to League park with enough pep, vim, and vigor (no liquor, to show the team that we are really counting on them. If we do that and the team playß the kind of football they really know how to play, KSU has a perfect chance of coming out ; of the game on top, believe it or not. Kent has the team. Now let's really play football this time, fellows. If you are half the men we think you are, you'll be out there giving everything you've got to win that game, and it can be done.
