This issue of the Wooster Voice details the upcoming student elections for the student senate, the dedication of the new music conservatory which is to be dedicated to Karl Merz during homecoming ceremonies on October 25th, 1942, a declaration of the Secretary of War that members of the Army Enlisted Reserve Corp studying in Wooster may continue their studies. The front page also has a photo of the 20 Army and Navy fliers in training who were studying at the time in Wooster. The second page contains a comic detailing the history of cold pressing wheat germ, and has some Chinese characters in it. The only meaningful character is: 悲 which translates as sad or doleful, the others are either meaningless without further context or illegible. Page 2 also details a series of op-eds on the inability of US Army troops to vote due to logistics problems and political unwillingness to take the needed steps to ensure ballot boxes at the front lines. There is also an opinion piece criticizing the Wooster sorority rushes. An ad for War Bonds also appears on page 2. Page 3 is sports and page 4 lists small local events and upcoming lectures by Wooster faculty and guest lecturers.
