This edition of the Voice includes an article on the dedication of a memorial plaque during the regular chapel services to those men of the college who lost their lives in the second world war. Another article presents the newest maids, escorts and pages that Queen Pat named to Color Day Court. The campus’ excitement as it awaited the arrival of Thornton Wilder, a brilliant playwright who was due to arrive that week, was captured perfectly in an article titled Wooster Gets Wilder. Another article discussed the debate that took place at the United Nations model assembly regarding the pros and cons of recognizing the People’s Republic of China, communist at the time. This edition of the newspaper also informs the student body that the deadline for Student Senate editor applications was fast approaching. Advertisements from local businesses and the Wooster community have been distributed throughout the newspaper.
