This edition of The Wooster Voice includes a creative writing piece titled His First Inspiration on the Professor, and his life which makes for a very interesting read. The Of Interest section in this edition includes an article discussing the highlights of the Bryan and Kern Banquet which was thought to be the most pleasant social function held that year. The third page of the newspaper, like with most editions in this time period, is dedicated to Wooster Athletics. A lengthy article describes Wooster’s defeat against Case in an exciting football game that took place earlier that week. The highlights of the game are recounted and scores listed for those in the student body who missed the game. The next page of the newspaper includes a page long piece by the editorial addressing the student body, and covers a variety of topics. This piece ends with a Calendar which lists the upcoming events that the editorial deems important to attend. Later in the paper, the topics of discussion in both the YMCA and YWCA meetings were discussed under the section on Religious. This article also included an article titled Jewish Music and Musicians, which was a continuation in a lengthy series on a piece given by an orator at the previous commencement. Advertisements from local businesses and the Wooster community fill up the last couple pages in this edition of the newspaper.
