This edition of the newspaper includes an article describing the highlights of the Pan Hellenic Banquet where for the twenty-first time, the fraternity men of Wooster met for their annual banquet at the American house earlier that week. This edition also included another article describing the first ever concert held by the Girls’ Glee Club and recounts the success of their production. This article also included a copy of the program of the glee club’s concert which listed the names of the students and the songs they were singing. Another article describes two more of the conservatory recitals given by the class of 1908 earlier that week, and also includes a program of the same. The section dedicated to the Editorial, as was characteristic of this time period, discussed the glee club concert, the new honor system implemented in Holden Hall, as well as the “greatest Base Ball game ever played in Wooster”. Additionally, the editorial addressed the student body and advised them to restructure their priorities and commit to completing tasks categorized as “first things first”, rather than attempting to be jacks of all trades at the college. Advertisements from local businesses have been included in the last couple pages of the newspaper.
