In a follow-up to an article about the petition to instate food rationing, this weeks issue of the newspaper features a large article about the newly voted upon Food Conservation Program at the college. On the upcoming Saturday, Wooster served its first "Famine Meal" across campus. The meal received 80% approval from students, and so it was decided that the program would continue in future weeks. The conservation program will consist of the dining halls serving less wheat products every week and a less expensive meal once a week. The third page of the newspaper announces a win in track and field against Mt. Union. The issue ends with numerous advertisements from local businesses.
