This edition includes an article on the speeding up of the academic schedule such that students can finish their college education in 3 years so as to comply with the government's request to have men and women ready to be drafted at the age of 20. Another article discusses the collaboration between the Library and the Senate in donating books to marines, sailors and soldiers. The Student Senate also organized another fundraising event to raise money for the Red Cross, as described in another article. This newspaper also included a list of the eleven students that had been enlisted from the college, along with their home addresses in the event that other students wanted to reach out to them. Later in the paper, an article talks about the college's decision to potentially cut spring athletics due to the war. Advertisements from local businesses have been distributed throughout the newspaper.
