book description
This edition of the newspaper includes a fascinating article on the creation of the Student Senate, which came into being earlier that week. The article includes a detailed description of the constitution of the Student Senate, along with its purposes, goals and scope of activities. Another article discusses the Intercollegiate Peace Conference that Wooster attended earlier that week at De Pauw University. This edition of the newspaper also includes a series of articles describing the graduation recitals being presented by the Class of 1908. The highlights of the Freshman-Sophomore Debate is discussed in great length in another interesting piece. Later in the paper, a section is dedicated to the Editorial, as can be seen in most editions during this time period. The Editorial addressed the student body on the creation of the Student Senate in an attempt to reduce the confusion and general lack of misunderstanding regarding the purpose, methods and value of the new Student Organization. The Editorial also addresses the issue of using slang, arguing that a university man should use proper vocabulary that is representative of his years of education. Advertisements from local businesses and the Wooster community have been distributed throughout the latter half of this newspaper.
