This is the last issue of the year before the seventy fourth commencement exercises that honored College of Wooster President Charles F. Wishart known as Prexy for his 25 years of service. The first page also features an article about the Ohio College Association honoring Wishart with a special tribute at their meeting. On page 2 a tribute to local institution “The Shack” is said to be affected by the war saying the clientele is now dominantly feminine, and “that wars may come and go but the ‘Shack’ will carry on, leaving a poignant memory in the hearts of all true Woosterians.” In addition, page 2 also includes an ad for war stamps and an appreciation of Wishart proclaiming “Prexy's leaving creates a void which can never quite be filled.” Page 3 has a very large photo of Wishart with the title Wooster merchants congratulate Prexy on his 25 years at Wooster and lists many businesses showing their support. Page 4 also has a large image of Wishart as well.
