Speakers came to the College to talk about Africa and African Independence in Wooster's Emphasis Africa series. Students must register for the seminars, and a list of those involved is given. Wooster held a mock election to mirror the upcoming presidential election. Polling information is given. A Professor at the College wrote a long piece contrasting current campaign politics with the fear of Hitlerism.
