The first page features an article about receiving mail from a former graduate who was a prisoner of war in Germany and how students could send him mail. He shared “they had had a wonderful midnight service on Christmas Eve; that he was finding an opportunity to read some English novels that he had missed ; and that he and two other men were pooling their food, cooking together, and making out very, well.” It also announces the retirement of Professor Martin Remp after 29 years of service and welcomes the new staff of The Voice, which was the first time in the history that two junior coeds would head the staff. The second page features Opinion columns that debate the curriculum and in “Times of Decision” where the author E.S.N. talks about international government and says “The real causes of war and hate, of intolerance and racial prejudice are found in each one of us. We cause the wars. We have the intolerance and prejudice. We are selfish and bigoted. No public instrument is responsible; it is the public itself.” Page 3 reports sports and has a large advertisement for War Bonds and Stamps. Page 5 features many advertisements including a large advertisement with a photo featuring wedding dresses.
