The paper begins by discussing recent changes in draft regulations for the Vietnam War. Now certain College students will be eligible for draft, based on the quality of their grades. A new program on CBS, investigating whether or not there are still truly Christian universities, will film at and have a focus on Wooster. The Wooster administration is currently deeply concerned by the level of vandalism which has occured on campus, especially at the library, where upwards of $600 damage was incurred, with chairs being thrown from the fourth floor among other things. The administration continues to look into better enrollment of "Negro" [sic] students. They do not see simply recruitment as being enough, and have decided to go forward with a partnership with a predominantly "Negro" [sic] College to accept students on the basis of exchange. Miles College appears to be the College which Wooster has chosen to partner with. The Voice discusses the challenges and benefits of welcoming a new team of editors for the coming school year post-graduation. An opinion piece from a student looks at recent world events that have called for a stop to war, including a speech by Pope Paul Vi, as well as protests by American students, and the United States Government's turning a blind eye in light of the Vietnam Conflict. Students express concern over the College campus and environment being akin to an "ivory tower" [sic]. The Dean's List for the past semester is given in this edition. The practices of Wooster's sports teams have been suffering due to the incidence of a late and rainy spring. The baseball team opened its season the past weekend. The administration recently made an announcement concerning registration. For the first year ever, it will be held one semester in advance, instead of registering once the students return. There is an advertisement for an IBM 7090 computer to be used to arrange blind dates.
