This edition of the newspaper includes an article describing the upcoming concert by the Wooster Choir on Elijah. The prospect of inviting the Defense department to offer Wooster a Reserve Officers Training Corps unit is debated in another article, with the Student Senate holding off on a decision until they receive more facts. Another article discusses the results of a poll that was taken on campus which indicated that the men on campus would accept the ROTC plan if implemented. This newspaper also signals the beginning of debate season by detailing the last two inter-collegiate debates and listing the upcoming debates in an interesting article. The section dedicated to World News Roundup discusses events taking place in Korea in detail as well as the reports from India which seemed to indicate that the hostilities in Tibet are drawing to a close. Advertisements from local businesses are distributed throughout the newspaper. One of the advertisements by Greyhound is interestingly constructed keeping college students in mind, with fares from Wooster to different cities in nearby states listed as students begin to plan their winter trips back home.
