This issue of the Wooster Voice details Wooster's plans for coal acquisition in face of the ongoing shortage, the vetoing of a proposal by Wooster College President J. Drushal for the establishment of an on-campus, student-run pub, and the use of a Junior Independent Study Project in a United States Senate hearing. Page 2 features a series of opinion pieces on the proposed pub and on the ongoing Watergate scandals and comparison to Harry Truman's last days in office. Page 3 features film ratings, and an opinion piece arguing that depreciation of the United States dollar has contributed to the establishment of the ongoing OPEC embargo. Page 4 features a call for society to have more moral dignity and enforcers rather than too little, and a description of the political atmosphere in Washington in wake of the ongoing Watergate scandal. Page 5 contains continued stories, a call for Nixon to pardon draft dodgers in the Vietnam War, and a report on Ohio Senate Bill 1 which alters the age of majority to 18 in Ohio, with the exception of alcohol consumption. Pages 6-8 are the sports section.
