Description

The front page of this edition begins with details of the January 7th fire in Kenarden Lodge caused by a cigarette. It goes on to describe the founding of the Wooster chapter of the Phi Alpha Theta fraternity, Wilbur LaRoe Jr.'s Chapel Talk, and the influenza epidemic in which 40 students and many faculty members fell ill. On the second page, the authors announce that Freshmen no longer need to wear their caps and there is some discussion of the ban on Mendelssohn's and Gershwin's music in Nazi Germany. Sports updates are given on page 3 with a note that 2 Scots were benched because of influenza.
