Wooster begins its 1965 celebration of Color Day, now more popularly known as May Day. Famous jazz musician Jimmy Smith comes to play at the College. Young Republicans attack the Institute of Politics, which is an organization encouraging young people to go into politics. Attacks on students on campus continue. Now the total of students affected has risen to six, after two additional attacks since the last issue. A student recounts on the recent events in Selma, Alabama. The director of antiquities for Jordan pays his second visit to the College of Wooster, speaking on the Dead Sea Scrolls, and the Holy Land. There was an attempt by the student body to invite Martin Luther King Jr. and James Kilpatrick, two big names in the civil rights movement, to debate against each other. Page 3 in the Voice is the sports page. This time there is a piece included which reflects upon baseball of the past. On the final page, there is an ad, showing that Mary Poppins will be playing at Wooster's (only?) theater. There is also a large advertisement for Nick Amster's clothiers, including a competition they are having for winning a new pair of Levi's.
