WARNING: Graphic descriptions, page one. The cover story in this issue of the Voice, contains descriptions of war crimes and torture committed by U.S. soldiers during the Vietnam War against infants. The story discusses the claims by Lt. Col. Anthony Herbert, who was set to speak on “The U.S. Army: A preview of 1984” at the College in September 1972. Campus Council and the Deans' staff hold a retreat at the Wooster Presbytery Camp at Pleasant Hill Reservoir. Campus Council adopts a revised Human Relations Commission (HRC) charter, clarifying Council's relation to the HRC and holds a meeting with the College community to discuss the President's veto of the visitation memorandum. An article on page two discusses an upcoming election and the youth vote. Additionally, this Voice includes a story on the public's opinions on abortion, that also details the authors view.
