Make Grades
or be Drafted,
Ganoe Warns
Col. William A. Ganoe, ROTC com-
mandant, yesterday deplored the "dis-
appointed attitude" of the many men
students whom he interviews daily .at
not have initially elected ROTC.
"The great chance for finishing
one's education by being in either of
the ROTC's," the head of the campus
unit said, "was not apparent then and
in many cases seems misunderstood
Colonel Ganoe, who gives final ap-
proval for enlistment in the Army
Enlisted Reserve, predicted draft eli-
gible men's stay in this University
will ultimately be directly propor-
tional to their high scholastic stand-
ing and pursuit of subjects which
bear directly on military service.
"Never has scholarship been so
necessary to a boy's future," he tells
reserve applicants. College enlistees
are selected with great care, and "if
they don't maintain an above average
scholastic rating, 'out they go at the
end of the term."
For "able and willing" men who
have proved themselves. able to stick
in one of the University's reserve pro-
grams, the Colonel promises to fight.
He sees hope in the latest statement
of the Joint Army - Navy - Marine
Corps Procurement Committee that
a new draft bill, as far as is now
known, will not affect operation of
the Enlisted Reserve Corps Unas-
signed program.
For boys, disappointed at not being
told about military science work,. the
Colonel in most cases can do nothing.

duction calls.

transcontinental or interstate long
distance lines involving distances of

versation as short as possible.
