This edition of the Wooster Voice was published February 23rd, 1968. The Voice is a student run newspaper published at the College of Wooster. This issue headlines the withdrawal of the 2-S draft exemption, exposing many college seniors and graduate students to the draft. Also featured is a story of Ché, a leftist student journal. The selling of Ché in the book store was objected to, but was allowed after the Dean gave approval. The magazine is named after noted war criminal Ché Guerva who was notorious for his use of firing squads on civilians, gays, and people of color in Cuba in the name of promoting Marxism. Page 2 features opinion pieces on the draft changes and what it means for students. Page 3 features a story on a "Diversity House" in Cleveland, designed to increase communication between "ghetto-dwelling blacks and suburbanite...whites." A profoundly negative review of the Ché publication is also to be found on page 3. Page 4 features a story about a civil rights publication and its struggle to survive in Alabama due to lack of popularity. Page 5 consists of continued articles and page 6 is the sports section.
