This edition of the newspaper includes an article on the front page which describes the pageantry, sports and dances that characterized the 46th Annual Color Day that year. The celebrations were described in detail as a campus wide celebration took place. Another interesting article discussed students’ suggestions for curriculum revision, wherein they specifically requested more world literature, less religious requirements, and less IS. This newspaper also includes an article which discussed the recently assured freedom assigned to the Women’s self government to act on a proposed change in the enforcement of the College drinking rule. Additionally, another article discussed the recent Kashmir compromise, describing the United States mediation efforts between India and Pakistan over the Kashmir dispute. Later in the paper, an article titled The Tale of Our Love Song; A Forty-four Year Tradition proved to be a fascinating read on the history of Wooster’s love song. Advertisements from local businesses and the Wooster community have been distributed throughout the newspaper.
