The paper begins with an announcement that Dr. Jesse Baird, a college alumnus and theologian, was to speak at Westminster chapel and the Scot Auditorium. The section "Negroes Present Music in Chapel" details Yuba Congoshiro and Charles Lampkin's planned music performance. James Baird is announced as the Wooster representative at the Ohio Intercollegiate Oratory contest. The results of a student survey indicate that most students think the U.S. will not be able to "stay out of the war." In the section "Restates Position And Classifies Viewpoints of Opposing Criticism," the authors discuss differing opinions on war and peace. The section "Question-Do you think the United States should enter the war?" includes several student opinions as well. A short article on page 4 discusses some students' efforts to form a Peace Service Fellowship group.
