THE NEW R. 0. T. C. AT MICHIGAN
With the re-establishment next fall of the R. O. T. C. unit in the Uni-
sity students will have an opportunity to increase their military knowl-
ge and at the same time pursue their academic work. They will be
abled to fulfill duty to self and duty to country. The United States will
ver go back to the former state of unpreparedness and the establish-
nt of collegiate training schools for reserve officers is in direct keeping
th the government's plan of universal service and maintaining of a large
ly of trained men ready for instant action. Since the Great War the
ited States has taken her place among .the nations of the world, a re-
ionship which may at any time bring us into disagreement with other
wers. But we will be prepared, and the R. 0. T. C. will form one of the
its ready for action.
It was the men who had previously received military training who
re first given the big appointments in Uncle Sam's army upon the
claration of war in 1917. This will again be the case in the event of
other conflict. The man with the training will step right into his com-
ssion and leave for the front, while his less fortunate brother or, we
ght say, less far-sighted brother will go after a long wait to the train-
i camps, there to spend much valuable time in arduous and hasty
ining, trying to become an officer in a few months. Under the plans
the new R. 0. T. C. the student will, after his first year of general
ining, be allowed to choose which corps he desires to enter, and his
Lining from then on will be centralized in the particular branch which
has chosen. The course, which is planne' primarily for engineering
dents, will be -doubly attractive to them, as many of the studies which
B applicable to military science are also of value as technical training
I vice versa.
In both the former R. O. T. C. and S. A. T. C. units at Michigan an
empt was made to combine military drill with academic study, a scheme
ich resulted in somewhat of a failure. The new plan, however, will
elate from a purely academic course during the school year only to the
ent of requiring two hours of physical training per week, which in
lf is of benefit to any student. The military instruction will be given
three summer camps, each of six weeks duration, which offer a vaca-
i and valuable training at the same time. In addition there is the
ly ration allowance of 40 cents which the student will receive during
juniori and senior years and, which, amounting to $12 a month, is not
insignificant amount as compared with the few hours of work required
The new R. 0 .T. C. has advantages which, we believe, r&commend it
the careful consideration of students eligible to enrollment therein.
THE FAILURE OF SUCCESS
Always, when something seems to have been accomplished,-finished
once and for all,-the relaxation brings a sense of regret, as though
thing achieved had not been the thing sought. We do not regret
ring run the race; we are only disappointed that it has ended. "Nothing
ceeds like success," said someone-perhaps a philosopher. But it
ld be said with equal assurance that "nothing fails like success."
Strange, isn't it, that the thing attained loses its glamour? Examina-
ts, for instance, look to be the ultra of life at a cerain season, while after
while they scarcely seem to reflect real life at all. So, too, any honor
the world, especially a personal honor, brings with it a feeling of self-
sciousness that mars the beauty of the prize. The joy of attaining may
satisfying, but realizati of the attainment is rather inadequate.
Failure is not to be welcomed. It is scarcely pleasant to see your
Iges burned, your ideals fallen like broken toys. But the victor ex-
4ences something of the same feeling as does the vanquished. It is not
price that he pays for success, but the dismayed realization that there
Perhaps the compensation lies in the fact that, lacking satisfaction,
nan always reaches higher. Enjoying the race, he refuses to stop
ning. In spite of all condemnation thrust inadvertently upon ambi-
t, it is true that more can be accomplished with ambition than without

What though we see the emptiness of life, or hear its hollow ring?
