The front page of this edition of the newspaper includes a thought-provoking article on the question of college spirit, with the author claiming it to be impossible for growth and development of college spirit to take place among the student body within the limits of the rules that were enforced at the time. Giving the examples of Kenyon and Yale, the argument for a self-governing student body is made. Later in the paper, the Calendar of the newspaper includes upcoming greek life parties as well as the inter-class basketball schedule for the remainder of the semester. Another article discusses the highlights of the First International Student Bible Conference that took place a couple weeks earlier. Under the section Athletics, an article recounts the last football game of the season that took place between Wooster and Denison, wherein Denison emerged victorious despite the football team’s valiant effort. Scores and lineups were listed for those students who were unable to make it to the last game. A brief snippet towards the end of the newspaper states a creative definition of the word sarcasm. Lastly, advertisements from local businesses have been distributed throughout the latter half of the newspaper.
