Students May Earn Rank
Of Reserve Officer By
University courses in military sci-
ence, leading to a second lieutenancy
in the United States Army, can be
taken by students in conjunction with
the program of the Michigan unit of
the Reserve Officers Training Corps.
Freshmen who wish to gain their
officer standing in the R.O.T.C. must
enroll the first semester they are in
attendance at the University. Twelve
hour sof military training are ollowed
toward graduation, credit being given
at the rate of one hour each semester
for the first two years and two hours
each semester for the last two years.
The complete training takes eight se-
mesters, or four years.
The organization of the unit fol-
lows regular military tables of or-
ganization, with the exception that
most divisions of the regiment are
smaller than normal. When a stu-
dent first enrolls he is issued the r'eg-
ular basic uniform and becomes a
private, continuing in this rank until
he has completed one full year of
instruction. The second-year students
are promoted to the rank of corporal,
according to their past records.
During the second two years of the
course students receive pay from the
government, as well as during the
time they are at summer camp - the
final requisite for eligibility for a

and signal corps. As a general rule,

Science 4nd the Arts, enroll in the
infantry, those in the engineering
college in the signal corps, and those
heading toward business administra-
tion in the ordnance department.
There is no rule on this, however, all
cadets being given their choice.
