This issue of the Wooster Voice features the elections of the YMCA, YWCA, Kenarden Council, and the Color Day Queen. The second page features several arguments over the war in Europe, mostly arguing against direct military intervention, but with a few voices arguing in favor of continued economic aid to the United Kingdom, albeit with conditions. There are also arguments in favor of government intervention in breaking up military contractor strikes. Page 3 is devoted to reports on the training and matches of Wooster athletic teams. Page 4 features stories about a Pan-American conference at Oberlin, campus events, and movie showings. The featured film was Charlie Chaplin's: The Great Dictator, a parody of Hitler's rise to power, a topic briefly alluded to in page 2's editorials.
