This edition of The Wooster Voice includes an article briefly discussing the prevailing positive opinion of Wooster’s football team before informing the student body of the recently selected coach for the following year’s football team. It goes on to describe Coach Longman, his background, his education and various other qualifications that make him the perfect fit for Wooster’s football team. Another article describes the first Oratorical Contest of the Peace Association which was held in Taylor hall the previous week and recounts its highlights. This edition also includes an interesting article which talks about the motion made by the faculty to abolish all sororities on campus, its repercussions, as well as the final withdrawal of the motion by the faculty themselves. Subsequently, the Editorial section of this newspaper focuses on the action taking against sororities by the faculty members and informs the student body of the details, and reasonings behind such a decision. Interesting to note is that this edition of the Wooster Voice is one of the few in this time period that does not have a specific Athletics section. Lastly, advertisements from local businesses have been distributed throughout the latter half of this newspaper.
