There is absolutely no excuse for
conduct of this kind. The officers and
men of the United States army are en-
titled to wear the uniform of their
country because they are actually
serving in its army or navy.
They should not be placed in the same
class with persons who are devoting
a few moments each day to army
work. We should call impersonating
an officer, or common soldier, an of-
fense which might well be punished
by competent authorities.
We have seen, moreover, a great
many students parading the streets of
Detroit in their R. O. T. C. uniforms,
and there were many-perhaps a hun-
dred, perhaps more-who returned to
their homes for the spring r.ecess sim-
ilarly clad. There is a song, long en-
shrined in the traditions of Michigan
to the effect that "Michigan was a col-
lege when Pennsy was a pup." It
seems to us that some members of the
R. O. T. C. wish to perpetuate the
good old days of Siwash!
The general bearing of members of
the R.0 . T. C. may well come in for
its share of criticism. We've noticed
many times, and it was called to our
attention particularly during the Lib-
erty Loan parade, that the men in col-
umn do not present the appearance of
individuals who have had six months
of drill and discipline. They are not
erect; they are not neat; they exe-
cute movements in a slovenly way,
with no snap and no precision. Esprit
de corps seems- lacking.
Perhaps the coming of warm weath-
er and a few more weeks on the Fer-
ry field drill grounds may change
these things. We hope so, for we can-
