' 'Me NeKdh Ars Training-Wieg d
By BOB SOLT * *, *

College students don't know
enough about America's problem
of national defense, according to
Col. Charles D. Wiegand, newly
appointed chairman of the Uni-
versity Army ROTC progarm.
And the best way to counteract
this situation, he said recently, is
by universities requiring all male
undergraduates to take a course
in military science.
Such a reciui-ed course wouldn't
be as radical as it may seem at
first to some students and profes-
sors, added Col.Wicgand, whose
army career beTan 25 years ago
when he entered West Point.
"ALL LAND GrANT colleges re-
quire every freshman to take a
full course in military science. But
at the University, only about 7%
of the male undergraduates are
serious about national defense
while the rest of the male students
seem lethargic about this profes-
sional study," he explained.
A recruired course would not only
strengthen our national defense,
Col Wiegandasserted, but sould
benefit the student because the
basic training is valuable in what-
ever field the student enters.
A military program for univer-
sity women on a voluntary basis
also has much in its favor, Col.
Wiegand replied when queried on
this subject.
"Women played an important
part in the last war," he continu-
ed," and such a program would
create closer coordination between
the army and university facilities
in the secret" rial and other ad-
ministrative fields."

problems, but is able to furnish
his cadets with information about
actual warfare problems.
During the bitterly-fought Si-
cilian campagns in the last war,
Cel. Wiegand served as comman-
der of an infantry battallion
in the 45th Division. With most
army men remembering one bat-
tle as outstanding, the big one
for Col. Wiegand happened at
"Our group was in the bridge-
head, and for three days and
nights the Germans pounded the
Allied forces with their backs to

the sea," he related. "It was 10
divisions against our four, and
they cut our forces down to one-
third. But the line held, enabling
the Allies to launch their big of-
As a military administrator, Col.
Wiegand has served as assistant
chief of missions to Guatemala for
three years, handling cadet and
graduate training and educational
problems, founding three officers
schools. Before coming to the Uni-
versity, he served as professor of
Military Science at Howe Military
School in Indiana.

'Bly Looer
Less than one half on Ann Ar-
bor's eligible voters cast ballots
in the elections in the fall of 1948,
and unless registration figures
take a sudden jump, the total
turnout won't be much better this
year, Ann Arbor City Clerk Fred
Looker said yesterday.
"Registration totals this year
are following those of two years
ago fairly closely," he pointed out,
"and they will probably add up to,
about 20,000 registrants."
OUT OF ABOUT 35,000 possible
votes, 29,700 registered and only
14,400 voted in 1948, Looker said.
This year the City Clerk's of-
fice will continue to register res-
idents until Oct. 18, but no one
can be handled after that date,
he remarked.
All that a prospective voter has
to do is to go to the Clerk's office
in the City Hall and sign the re-
quired material. This office is open
9 a.m. to 5 p.m. weekdays, 9 a.m.
to 12 noon on Saturday, and 9
a.m. to 8 p.m. on Oct. 18.

THEN HE is eligible to vote in
the election Nov. 7. At that time
this district will elect a Congress-
man to replace Earl A. Michener,
who is retiring after nearly 30
years service in this post.- The
Michigan gubernatorial race will
be concluded at this time also.
To be eligible to register, a
student must of course be at
least 21 years old and a U.S.
citizen. To register in Ann Ar-
bor you must be able to prove
that you are a resident.
This means that unless a stu-
dent is willing to swear that he
has no other home but Ann Ar-
bor, he can neither register nor
vote here. Students who have just
lived here during school are out
of luck.
S* .
HOWEVER, married students
who have been living in Ann Arbor
for the required 20 days, and in
Michigan for six months, even
though they are not originally
from this city are being register-
ed, City Clark Looker said.
Any student from out of town
who wishes to cast an absentee
ballot must write to his city clerk
requesting an application for one.
Stud:n uts who are residents of Ohio
should write to their county elec-
tion board for such an application.
