GOVERNMENT WILL BUY SUITS
Students who enroll in the Reserve
Officers' Training Corps, which will
be established in the University next
fall, are expected to sign up for the
two-year schedule. The courses will
be in charge of Captain George C.
Mullen, a professor of miltary tactics
and science. Graduates will receive
a commission as officers if they decide
to enter active service, at the comple-

Captain Mullen is now busily en-

new courses. The schedule will be

The senior division curriculum con-
tains a detailed account of the military
studies offered for a period of two
years. University students who en-
roll in this department will devote
their entire time for four semesters to
military art. The military work offer-
ed for next summer is additional and
will not be essential for graduation.
Object of New Courses
The primary object of establishing
units of the Reserve Officers' Training
Corps is to qualify, by systematic and
standard methods of training, students
at civil educational institutions for re-
serve officers. The system of instruc-

pare them to perform intelligently the
duties of commissioned officers in the
military forces of the United States.
It also enables them to be trained with
the least practicable interference with
their civil careers.

Members of the senior division are
classified with units at universities and
colleges requiring four years' collegi-
ate study for a degree and all units at
