scheduled by student. group.
throughout the country, and peti-
tions in support oil twvo bills pencd-
ing in Congress which dem nd ti. e
immediate abolition of the compul-
sory feature of military drill are
being circulated.
The campaign will be concentrat-
ed in December and January in or-t
der to influence this legislation.
Fifteen thousand signatures by
January first is the slogan for the
first part of the fight.
Cite Objections.
Military drill is a violation of
academic freedom. R.O.T.C. courses
arc not under the administration of
the college but of the war depart-
r'ent. They often are a prerequi-
site to graduation. This amounts
to a strangle hold on student opin-
ion by the military authorities.
Military drill is an attempt to
train students in the attitude of
unquestioning obedience which war
demands. It seeks to idealize war,
and to inculcate among students
the mental attitude which makes
war possible.
Weyl Cites Student Opinion.
The campaign is being organized
by the Intercollegiate S t u d e n t,
council, a student organization of
some one hundred college groups.
Nathaniel Weyl, Columbia '31, who
is the chairman of the committee
conducting the flight announced
"This is the first tirne that stu-
dent opinion throughout the coun-
try has decided to mobilize itself,
and to make its influence felt. For
a long time students suffering un-
cier the incubus of military drill
have waged lone fights for its aboli-
tUon. .During this last year the
nurober of protests in individual
colleges has been multiplied. Vigor-
ous fights were conducted in Cor-
re', North Carolina (where corn-
pu,ry drill was abolished by the
students), in Iowa Siate where two
thousand students who had taken
the course and were sick of it peti-
tioned the Governor for t abol-
tion, and in twelve other colleges."
