Women's Sports Review [Newspaper Article] — The Kent Stater — 17 November 1939
Women's Sports Review The women's athletic association will soon come to the end of a very successful Fall spoits program. The women, as you know, have seasonal sports just as the men playing football in the fall and basketball in winter. The WAA program this season consisted of swimming, soccer, horseback riding, bowling, horseshoes, and archery. Tournaments will soon be played in most of those sports and then the winter season will be under way. Winter sports include, badminton (a very popular sport here at Kent), basketball, volleyball, and then of course, skiing, coasting and skating. Skating, incidently, brings to mind a rather interesting question. Why can't Kent have a place on the campus to ice skate. Heavens, there are plenty of places to use for such a purpose. All we need is a little water and a few prayers for freezing weather. How about flooding the tennis courts in back of the gym—or even digging a hole someplace? Members of WAA get points for ice skating you know, and...

Muskies Capture League Grid Title Golden Flashes Are 14th In Race The fighting Muskies of little I Muskingum college, New Concord, have won the Ohio conference championship by virtue of their seven consecutive wins in league play. The Golden Flashes are now holding down the 14th slot in the 20-team loop with tomorrow's game at Baldwin-Wallace still to be added to the final standings. Kent began this campaign in fine style as they knocked over Heidelberg 19-0 in its first conference tilt. However since then the Flashes have been tied by Mount Union, beaten by Findlay, and thoroughly trounced by Bowling Green. The final score of the BeeGee game still brings a flush to undergraduates and grads who witnessed the affair. This makes | their record one win, a tie, and two losses in four loop contests.

There's N? Cjr about Cigarette Tobaccos THERE ARE FOUR TYPES of tobaccos found in the more popular cigarettes, namely.. .Bright, Maryland, Burley and Turkish. ALL THESE TOBACCOS except Turkish (which is bought direct from the planters in Turkey and Greece) and Maryland (which is bought through sealed bids under government supervision) are bought at public auction, just like any other auction where you might have bought in a table or a chair. AT THE AUCTION SALE the tobacco is piled in baskets weighing from about 100 to 500 pounds and each purchaser buys all of his tobaccos by competitive bidding for the particular piles he wants. THE CHESTERFIELD BUYERS buy the best of these mild ripe tobaccos for the Chesterfield blend. And it is Chesterfield's Combination ... the right amounts of Burley and Bright... just enough Maryland... and just enough Turkish—that makes the big difference between Chesterfield and other cigarettes. IT IS BECAUSE of this combination that Chesterfields are COOLE...

B-W Trims Flashes [Newspaper Article] — The Kent Stater — 20 November 1939
B-W Trims Flashes Yellow Jackets Register 19 First Downs to Win 40-6 By Mickey Dover Dropping the curtain on this year's pigskin pa/rade, the Golden Flashes, outclassed but not outfought, bowed to Bald-win-Wallace Saturday at Berea by a 40 to 6 score. Kent completely stopped the highly touted aerial attack with a 5-3-2-1 defense, but George Morris, the Yellow Jacket left-halfback, ran wild, personally accounting for 2 7 of B-W's &gt;4O points. The new defense held the Yellow jackets to two completed passes, but Morris and his running mate, Irvin Maxwell, gave adequate proof that B-W also had a strong running attack. The Jackets scored in every quarter, gaining nine-tenths of their yardage on end-sweeps. Four Kent seniors, Louis Cardinal, Les Netzen, Don Miller, and George Mollica all played good games for their last appearance in Blue and Gold uniforms. The boy who stole the show, however, was James Alogdelis. Abi-Jab recovered two fumbles and stole the ball from a juggling ...

Kent State Students in Immense Quandary Over Recent Changes of Thanksgiving Vacation [Newspaper Article] — The Kent Stater — 20 November 1939
Kent State Students in Immense Quandary Over Recent Changes of Thanksgiving Vacation By Virginia Frederick It's the twenty third ... it is not, it's the thirtieth . . . well, it's a fine thing . . . you just can't tell about these holidays anymore. Kent State students are celebrat ing Thanksgiving, November 23, by proclamation of President Franklin Roosevelt and the Governor of the fair Buckeye state. That is, they are going home for Thanksgiving vacation next Wednesday. But there have been rumors that some puzzled students don't know just what to do. They have been raised * * * on the old school of thought that Thanksgiving comes the last Thursday of November and president, governor, school vacation, or the old adage about high water, won't drive this thought from their minds. Then too they have heard disturbing rumors that all the people are not celebrating Turkey day at the same time. The governor of Kentucky was not to be outdone by the president so he declared Thursday, Nov. 16...
Why Come? [Newspaper Article] — The Kent Stater — 20 November 1939
Why Come? The numerous stags that attend the Wednesday night HPE dances are an indication that they are interested in dancing. Or, at least, it looks like they are interested in something about the dance. But, it would certainly make an interesting story if we could question them, and find out exactly why they come. They stay until just before the end of the dance, but they do not dance. Why come, time after time just to watch ? —CP —K—
It May Suffer [Newspaper Article] — The Kent Stater — 20 November 1939
It May Suffer Several times in the past, musical programs or fine speakers have been scheduled on the'same night as social dancing or some other lighter entertainment. Perhaps this is unavoidable in some instances, but there should be an attempt to encourage students to take advantage of different types of relaxation. Therefore, insofar as is possible, such cultural programs should be arranged on another night. In questioning several students, it was discovered that they wished to attend the musical program last Wednesday and the dance too. Students do appreciate the place of cultural entertainment, but it may suffer a little when it comes on the same night with other social programs.—CP —K—
Oh, Sad Final Reckoning [Newspaper Article] — The Kent Stater — 20 November 1939
Oh, Sad Final Reckoning Under the present grade set-up, only those who are flunking or near the danger mark know how they are doing at the nine weeks period. It is true, the student can find out what grade he is making in his subjects if he wishes to ask the professor, but how many students do this? Most of them figure if they are not flunking, they are doing satisfactory work. Or, they just neglect to check on the grade they made. In the first place, the student in the ABC division, kids himself into thinking he is getting the upper mark he expects. Then, at the end of the semester he discovers he did not make such a mark. In the second place, the student gets negligent and becomes lax in his work since he didn't get a deficiency mark. Oh, sad final reckoning!
