Fund For Students
Pays Two Million
Iin Loans To Dcate
Established in 1897 by University
Alumni and other persons interested
in assisting needy students, the Stu-
dent Loan Fund has furnished loans
totalling over $2,115,000 during its
existence.
To borrow money from this fund it
is necessary for students to file an
application with the Committee on
Student Loans, stating such facts as
the amount of money desired, per-
sonal history and estimated yearly
budgets. A low rate of interest is

Corps supplements regular military
academies and officer training schoolsI
in maintaining the supply of trained
Army officers.
Since its establishment on campus
in 1919, the ROTC has grown to a size
of more than 1,200 cadets. A cadet
who starts his ROTC training in his
freshmen year and completes the full
eight term course - the first four
in the basic course and the second
four in the advanced course - re-
ceives a second lieutenant'scommis-
sion in the Officers' Reserve Corps.'
The Department of Military Sci-
ence and Tactics trains units in In-
fantry, Ordnance, Signal Corps, Corps
of Engineers, Medical Corps and the
newly established Quartermaster
Corps. Academic credit is given for
ROTC work and the drill is credited
for the same number of hours in the
new physical hardening program
(PEM). Students in the Advanced
Corps are deferred until graduation,
but they are required to enroll in the
Army Enlisted Reserve Corps.
A recent statement by Secretary of
War Stimson said that all men who
are 20 years old and enlisted in, the
Army Reserve program will "probab-
ly" be called around the first of the
year. However, Col. William A.
Ganoe, commander of the ROTC unit
here. said that he "doubts if the
Army will take anyone into active
service who is in the advanced corps
of the ROTC. Therefore," he said,
"a cadet in the basic corps who is of
such high standards that he is likely
to get into the advanced corps will
probably also be permitted to remain
in school."
There is no limit on the number of
men than can be taken into the basic
training corps of the ROTC. Every
freshman who wants to and can pass
the physical examination will be tak-
en into the unit.
Extra officers are expected to help
train cadets enrolled in the Medical,
Signal and Quartermaster Corps. As
far as possible, however, cadet offi-
cers will train the cadets this year.

Kefgen, advisor-at-large, and Mar-
jorie Lovejoy, '44, secretary. Each ad-
visor will be assigned a group of 8
to 15 students and will see that they
receive the proper preparation for
registration and classification.
