ONE HOUR A WEEK:
'U' ROTC Pays $575
To Students in Training
(EDITOR'S NOTE: This is an interpretive article explaining the functions
of the University R'OTC in the light of recent political developments.)
By LILIAS WAGNER
How would you like to be paid $575 for taking a course during
the last two years in the University?
* * * *
This is the question being asked now by the University ROTC.
It is well known that draft measures are being considered by
Congress. One of the bills exempts advanced ROTC students from
the draft. As a consequence, and for other reasons, it is well to
examine what the Reserve Officers Training Corps has to offer.
The basic two-year course involves one hour of class per
week. During the last two years, which are voluntary, the student
attends five hour classes. '
He receives academic credit and cash, paid monthly, amount-
ing to the afore-mentioned sum of nearly $600 for the two
years. In addition, uniforms, required for one period a week,
equipment and' text are furnished throughout the four-year
* * * :
Successful students, upon graduation, are offered commissions
in the officers' Reserve Corps and those in the upper third of the
ROTC class are eligible for Regular Army or Air Corps Commissions.
The student is under no military obligation whatsoever; however,
in event of national emergency, he would be prepared to take his
place as a leader.
A veteran with more than one year service in any of the Armed
Forces may enroll in the Advanlced Course. Among the branches open
are Infantry, Military Police, Quartermaster Corps and Air Force.
Other branches are open to medical students, physics majors
and engineering students.
* * * *
This is the set-up offered by the ROTC. Before planning next
year's courses, it is worth careful thought by the men on campus.
Further information is available by writing or calling Col. Karl E.
Henion, Professor of Military Science and Tactics, at ROTC head-
quarters, 512 S. State St., or at classification time next fall at the
Variety of Positions
Available to Students
This year summer job oppor-
tunities for forestry students are
excellent, according to Prof. Wil-
lett F. Ramsdell, of the forestry
and conservation school.
The largest number of students
are being employed by the U.S.
Forest Service at various national
forests, experimental stations and
tree nurseries in the lake states,
the Rocky Mountains, and the
Pacific Coast area.
The nature of the work ranges
from unskilled labor, such as'
eradication of plants bearing the
blister rust parasite, to highly
skilled work involving aerial photo
Other jobs which will keep the
young Paul Bunyans occupied
during the next three months are
work on fire control crews, con-
struction crews, timber survey
par'ties, and lookout stations.
Forestry students who are en-
tered in the school's wild life pro-
gram can find outlets for their
enthusiasm in summer jobs creat-
ed by the Pittman-Robertson Act
for acquisition of lands for game
refuge. Students employed in this
type of work would serve as as-
sistants to the land inspectors.
Private logging and pulpwood
companies also give the student
opportunity to make use of his
summer vacation with positions'
involving the cruising and
mapping of timber, and log seal-

Cramming makes for a sickly
student but a healthy grade card,
according to members of the psy-
chology department contacted by
The Daily yesterday,
"A little learning is better than
none," declared Harold Guetzkow,
Project Co-Ordinator of Confer-
Dr. Warren E. Forsythe, Health
Service director, advised students
it is "common sense not to ex-
haust themselves so that they can
do justice to what they have
learnedin thepast semester."
He also warned students to
avoid taking anything to keep
awake other than a "reasons
amount" of coffee. "Any reso
ing to chemicals to keep aw
is like whipping a tired horse,'
Most common varieties of
pills" probably contain noth
more than caffein anyway,
Forsythe said, and the use
other drugs may cause "unju
fiable stimulation" of the me
anisms of the body.
