sorority houses next year in or

For Revitew
In a training memorandum to the
regiment of cadets, Lieut. Col. Fran-
cis M. Brannan, commandant, com-
plimented the unit on their showing
in the federal inspection made last
Thursday and Friday.
He declared that Thursday's re-
view was undoubtedly the best of
the year and revealed that one of the
inspecting officers had expressed sur-
prise that the unit had attained such
proficiency in the short time devoted
to the drill.
The University corps will probably
receive once more the excellent rat-
ing held in the past, he added.
The ROTC units have only one
more function scheduled for the cur-
rent school year, a parade and review
at 5 .p.m., June 6, on Palmer Field.

linoleum" as he puts it, he has de-
voted his time to the study of the
cornet in particular and music in
