The Kent State University Retired Faculty Association met recently at the KSU Library with about 30 people in attendance, composed of retired KSU faculty, spouses, and guests, to hear T.N. Bhargava, KSU professor emeritus of mathematics and president of Portage Travel Service in Kent. He gave a presentation entitled, Adventures in Travel: Travel Opportunities, Airline Security and Personal Safety. The session generated lots of questions and observations from the audience. Myra West then shared some interesting observations about her recent trip to Cuba. Others also commented on their experiences. Hal Williams, professor emeritus of economics, chaired the session and briefly provided information on the Ohio State Teachers Health Care Crisis. Homemade refreshments were provided by Dorothy Williams, hostess. The association holds its regular speaker meetings from 10 to 11:30 a.m. the first and third Wednesday of each month in the Manchester Room of the KSU Main Library, while the university is in session. Aside from the regular Wednesday meetings, the retirees hold a December holiday luncheon and an annual mid-May picnic at the Roy Smith Shelter House at Fred Fuller Park in Kent. For further information, contact Ed Hall at (330) 678-3698. Hal Williams, Kent State University professor emeritus of economics, left; and T.N.
