This issue of the Wooster Voice begins with a number of announcements updates to the student body. The biggest article/update in this edition was the fire that destroyed part of Hoover Cottage, one of the residential buildings on campus. Over the summer of 1960, on August 15th, a fire was sparked in one of the closets in the dormitory due to faulty wiring. This fire displaced around 77 women for the 1960-61 academic year and accelerated renovations that had been planned for the upcoming years. There is also an announcement of a new Dean of Women. Professor Baird's wife, Mrs. J. Arthur Baird, replaced Marjorie S. Golder as the acting-dean. One of the last articles on the first page of this issue announces that 8 Wooster students were to be studying abroad during the 1960-61 academic year. The majority of these students studied at the University of Edinburgh in Scotland, however there are some students that studied in the Philippines and Ghana. This issues of the paper ends with information about athletics and the football team and a number of advertisements for local businesses.
