TENSHUN!-Prof. Donald Hill, conspicuously not in uniform,
chats with one of the cadets attending the ROTC six-week

educators visited the camp and spent a typical day of training-
as spectators.

Prof. Donald L. Hill of the Eng-
lish department was among the 33
midwest college and university
representatives who gathered at
Fort Riley, Kansas, recently for a
tour of the Reserve Officers Train-
ing Corps camp.
The camp is the site of a six-
week intensive field training pro-
gram for 1820 cadets from 49 in-
stitutions, including 53 cadets from
the University, which serves as a
major requirement in the ROTC
plan. Students completing the en-
tire program receive commissions
as second lieutenants in the United
States Army Reserve.
The educators spent a day tour-
ing the camp and watching the
cadets exhibit their skill. The day
began with breakfast and an off i-
cial welcome from General Harvey
Fischer, commanding general of

Fort Riley and the First Infantry
Given Equipment
Following a briefing of the
camp, the visitors were supplied
with helmet liners, overshoes and
combat-type ponchos to deal with
the threatening weather. The
storm failed to materialize, but the
group put their equipment to good
use wading through mud created
by heavy rains the day before.
As spectators,. the educators
heard three cadet leaders receive
missions and watched as they
coped with and overcame simu-
lated aggressor forces.
Many of the visitors took ad-
vantage of the invitation to fire a
rocket launcher and a recoilless
rifle offered at the next stop on
their tour.
Watch Demonstration
After trying their own skill, they
watched as cadets demonstrated
the technique of fire in which
commands are designed to give
complete coverage of a target
while expending a minimum of
manpower and ammunition.
A typical field lunch of soup,
veal cutlets, new potatoes, tossed
salad with sliced tomatoes, bread
and butter, beverage and brownies

convinced the educators the cadets
were not suffering from lack of
good food during their six-week
Highlighting the afternoon's
schedule were demonstrations of
the speed and accuracy of some of
the Army's new machine guns.
Show New Rifle
The new M14 rifle was pitted
against the now-obsolete M1 rifle,
made famous for its semi-auto-
matic fire during World War I
and the Korean action, with the
results dramatically illustrating
the new weapon's advantages-a
full 20-round magazine was ripped
off in little over a second by the
cadet using the M14 rifle while
the M1 firer managed only four or
five rounds in the same time.
The M60 machine gun was also
put through its paces, to illustrate
its ability to fire sustained fire at
high speed for an indeterminate
period of time.
The climax of the tour came
when the educators witnessed an
amphibious assault on an enemy
position along the banks of a
branch of the Kansas River.
Witness Assault
The exercise, beginning with a
small reconnaissance party cross-
ing the river, utilized a number of
transportation means, including
boats, a pontoon foot bridge, the
M59 Armored Personnel Carrier
(an amphibious, track-laying ve-
hicle) and a helicopter.
After the reconnaissance party
had reported the enemy's posi-
tions, the commander sent foot
troops across in engineer assault
boats under cover of tank fire. A
pontoon foot bridge was floated
across the river as soon as the
troops had secured the enemy-
held beachhead and infantrymen
crossed to the new position.
Hops Across
As the fighting gained momen-
tum, the Engineer Support Troop
Commander boarded a helicopter
for another reconnaissance jaunt
and vehicles were floated across
to the enemy bank by a three-
pontoon infantry support raft.
The entire regiment then staged
a review in honor of the educators.
Before the reception and dinner
ending the day the group split up
and each of the visitors joined the
cadets who attend his institution
during the year for an informal
discussion, about camp and aca-
demic life.

Ranks of Presidential Candidates Grow-

Associated Press Newsfeatures Writer
National convention time is
nearly a year off for the Democrats
and Republicans, but already the
woods are full of would-be, could-
be and just-don't-ask-me-at-the-
moment presidential candidates.
The way things look now, both
parties may have wide open con-
ventions. The Democrats, in par-
ticular, have their most crowded
field in years. Almost any Demo-
cratic senator or governor caught
outside his home state after dark
this fall will be suspected of having
at least vice presidential ambi-
So far Sen. Hubert Humphrey of

Minnesota is the only announced-
or almost announced-candidate.
Gov. Orville Freeman and Sen. Eu-
gene McCarthy, his top home state
supporters, threw his hat with the
liberal feather attached into the
ring last week with the establish-
ment of a Humphrey-for-President
Strategy Move
The move was undoubtedly an
attempt to head off Sen. John
Kennedy of Massachusetts, the
bushy-haired millionaire's son .mio
has beea flitting about the country
for the past two years and is con-
sidered far ahead by most pundits
and pollsters.
Kennedy is bucking the bogey
that a Catholic cannot be elected
president, a view already aired by
Democratic Party Chairman Paul
Butler, himself a Catholic.
In addition, the Democrats have
Sen. Lyndon Johnson of Texas, the
powerful and capable Senate ma-
jority leader who has recently
come under criticism from the
party's liberal wing and chairman
Butler; Sen. Stuart Symington of
Missouri, the former Air Force
Secretary who will probably have
the backing of former President
Truman and House Speaker Sam
Rayburn, and twice-defeated Adlai
Stevenson, who if he decides to run
would likely cut heavily into Hum-
phrey's following.

+ ,

There are also a flock of favorite
son candidates from big, powerful'
delegations: Gov. G. Mennen Wil-
liams of Michigan, Gov. Mike Di-
Salle of Ohio, Gov. Robert Meyner
of New Jersey and Gov. Edmund
(Pat) Brown of California. The
Williams cause has strong labor
support but has not been helped
by Michigan's well-advertised fis-
cal plight.
Traditionally the favorite sons
are in a good bargaining position
for top cabinet posts and perhaps
the ;;econd place on the ticket, but
Brown for one says he has no
interest in being vice-president.
Asked what he'd do if the top post
were offered, he replied, "I'd take
it and do everything I could to be
a good candidate."
Brown and DiSalle are both
Catholics and presumably not in-
terested in advancing the cause of
Kennedy, since an all-Catholic
ticket is not politically possible.
Surveyed Field
An Associated Press survey of
state Democratic chairmen after
last November's smashing Demo-
cratic victories showed Kennedy
and Symington running one-two,
with Gov. Meyner surprisingly
ahead of Stevenson, Johnson and
However in politics as in horse
racing there is always the danger
of getting out front too far too
early. To avoid this Kennedy has
decided to bypass most speaking
engagements during the summer.
Humphrey, who has the opposite
problem, will campaign in the Mid-
west and Rocky Mountain areas to
line up delegate support. Backers
indicate he may enter presidential
preferential primaries in Wiscon-
sin, Oregon, South Dakota and
Nebraska but will steer clear of
those where a genuine favorite son
is entered.
Primary Clashes
Kennedy and Humphrey could
collide in the Wisconsin primary, a
clash that Gov. Gaylord Nelson
is trying to avert by urging Sen.
William Proxmire to run as a fa-

vorite son. If not there then the
Kennedy - Humphrey showdown
could come in Nebraska or South
Johnson, Stevenson and Sym-
ington are expected to avoid pre-
ferential primaries, although their
names could be entered in Oregon
without their formal blessing un-
der a new law.
On the Republican side, the pic-
ture is less confused and less cul-
tured. Vice-President Richard Nix-
on is far ahead, with Gov. Nelson
Rockefeller of New York slowly
gaining strength. President Eisen-
hower has indicated that he wants
an open convention,
Nixon is believed to have enough
support at the moment to sew up
the nomination butprefers to bide
his time, perhaps preferring an
open convention to the "choo-
choo-choo" chant that haunted
William Howard Taft when Teddy
Roosevelt backers suspected a rail-
roaded convention a half-century
In the event of a standoff be-
tween Nixon and Rockefeller,
which hardly seems likely at this
stage, Chief Justice Earl Warren,
Chief United Nations Delegate
Henry Cabot Lodge, or Secretary
of State Christian Herter could
have an outside chance.
GOP vice-presidential possibili-
ties include Secretary of Labor,
Mitchell, House minority leader
Charles Halleck of Indiana, Gov.
Cecil Underwood of West Vir-
ginia, Gov. Mark Hatfield of Ore-
gon and Sen. Kenneth Keating of
New York.
Possibilities Numerous
The Democrats, in addition to
the names already mentioned, have
a flock of young governors and
senators, most of them swept into
office last November, for the second
spot on the ticket.
In 1956, the Republicans met in
San Francisco and the Democrats
in Chicago. In 1960, both reverse
the fields. The Republicans will
meet July 25 in Chicago, the Dem-
ocrats July 11 in Los Angeles.
