Dr. Barbe's Book Guides Child's Reading Habits [Newspaper Article] — Kent State University Summer News — 13 July 1961
Dr. Barbe's Book Guides Child's Reading Habits Each child learning to read should be allowed to chose his own books rather than be required to study the traditional class reader, according to a Kent State University educator. This theory of teaching reading is described in "Educator's Guide to Personalized Reading Instruction" by Walter B. Barbe, head of special education at Kent. Publisher is Prentice-Hall. The book covers the elementary field from the child just learning the alphabet to the advanced sixth grader who can read on the high school level. Dr. Barbe, who came to Kent a year ago, also is editor of a chapter on teaching gifted children to read in another new Pren-tice-Hall publication, "Curriculum Content for the Gifted." Before joining the Kent faculty, he was professor of education and director of the Junior League Reading Center at the University of Chattanooga.

Stage Settings for "Stalag 17" Performance Test Technical Director's Resourcefulness Louis O. Erdmann, the technical director to the University summer theater's production of "Stalag 17," prefers experimentation to limited perfection.

And one of his technical creations, the stage setting for last year's performance of the "Tempest," was selected by the American Educational Theatre Association as representative of the contemporaryscenic designs in the country. Photographs of this setting are currently being shown at the Academy of Arts in Vienna, Austria, with the association's traveling display of the best in educational theater work. The exhibit which includes costumes and other paraphenalia for which technical directors are responsible will be shown in this country during the next school year.

An Educator Evaluates Lack of Funds Hinders Activation of TV at Kent [Newspaper Article] — Kent State University Summer News — 13 July 1961
An Educator Evaluates Lack of Funds Hinders Activation of TV at Kent Creation of the Ohio Educational Television Network Commission by the State Legislators last week will have no immediate effect upon Kent State University, according to Walton D. Clarke, director of the Division of Broadcasting, School of Speech. "Activation of Channel 55, which was reserved in 1952 by the Federal Communications Commission for use by Kent State University, Akron University and the Akron public school system, hinges upon the availability of money," he said. The bill establishing the State's educational TV commission provided no funds. "This,"he explained, "means that the University will not have funds to enlarge its television facilities before the legislators meet again in 1963." Money to help implement the program of the Ohio Educational Television Network Commission may come from the Federal Government, Professor Clarke believes. He said, "The bill was designed to set up a commission so that Ohio...
