This edition of the Wooster Voice begins with an article about a new 1.5 million dollar library at the college, which was planned to be ready for the fall of 1962. The present library will be used as an art department. There is a section dedicated to the speakers who came for the Annual Wooster Day celebration: Dr. Arthur H. Compton, and Dr. Robert E. Wilson. These alumni lead a public symposium about atomic energy. There is a small blurb on how Dr. Compton won the Nobel Prize in physics in 1927. Wooster Day is a day that commemorates the fire in 1901 that burned down Old Main. A new non-credit class in speed-reading was to be taught the next semester by Dr. Winford Sharp. The "Voice of Yesteryear" section states facts as to what was occurring at the college 60, 45, 15, 10, and 5 years ago. Fifteen years before on Wooster Day, President Lowry announced the beginning of the Independent Study program which would be required to all the current freshman and incoming students.
