This edition includes an article discussing the Wooster in India Committee's Wartime Policy in regards to the project in India. Another article urges students to continue to contribute to the Victory Campaign which was drawing to an end. The Red Cross moved its operations to the basement of the Wishart home according to an article, so that students can volunteer and help roll bandages. That week, an additional ten students left Wooster for the Armed Forces and their names have been listed in an article on the front page. Another article detailed the problems faced by the school in securing adequate food for all students. Later in the paper, a section has been dedicated to a series called The Duffle Bag, which specifically serves as a column for men in the service on campus. An interesting article details the opening of certain rooms in Lower Babcock for dates, where girls and guys can spend time together and play an exciting game of shuffleboard. Advertisements from local businesses are distributed throughout the newspaper. One of the advertisements is from The Ohio Central Telephone Corporation urging people to keep their phone calls to less than three minutes and to only contact busy war centers when important so as to keep the wires open for war messages.
