The front page of this edition features a schedule of presentations by the Joint Board of the armed services, who were on campus with the Joint Recruiting Board to promote opportunities for military service. The Women's Self-Government Association lists Linda Littlejohn as a guest speaker and notes her presentation topic: "What does Japan Want?" Gerard Priestly, a "London authority on foreign affairs" is announced as a guest chapel speaker. One headline on page 2 reads, "University of Texas Features Commando Course for Women." The war is notably influencing college activities, as the proceeds from a college play are donated to the Red Cross, the Wooster band celebrates United States Navy Day, and a campus war stamp sale campaign is described.
