The paper is highlighted with an extensive description of a new spring festival at the College, the Country Fair Festival, which is replacing Alfred E. Packard Day. This new festival includes multiple music performances and an arts and crafts display. A friendly debate on bio-ethics between the biology and religion departments was held. The College of Wooster radio station, WCWS, is submitting an application to renew its license. An article on grade inflation at the college-level looks at lowering standards of Professors allowing incompetent students to slip through the cracks. A national test of high school student's knowledge of American History revealed that although many students were aware of main historical events, few knew of the factors behind them. A program in which a service house works with [sic] 'retarded' individuals from the Apple Creek State Institute is highlighted. Students are encouraged to help pick the new College president. A play focusing on the experiences of men in Harlem in the 1960's will be put on by the College. It is called "Ceremonies in Dark Old Men." The NOW Legal Defense and Education Fund placed a public service announcement/comic, encouraging woman-power in the workforce, and decrying discrimination based on their appearance. The Wooster Golf Team looks forward to a potential appearance at Nationals.
