Description

There is a prominent headline noting the upcoming 24th Homecoming and the related "Dad's Day." An article announces the dedication of Merz Music Hall, named for Karl Merz (first director of the music conservatory at Wooster), which was to take place at the former Overholt residence. Another article describes a plane crash that left a student Navy trainee, Robert Glasgow, injured. Theater productions are announced and reviewed. The proposed amendment to lower the voting age to 18 if the draft age is 18 is discussed on page 2. The section Current Commotions includes opinions about the war and a small section entitled "This Monstrosity" discusses the martial economic law. One ad states "Put your purse in the fight. Buy war stamps and bonds."
