with rifles. They will then march
down to Packard street, and entrain
on D. U. R. cars for Ypsilanti. The
cadets will participate in the mon-

boring city. Through the courtesy of
the D. U. R., transportation has been
provided free of charge. The men will

"The officers on duty at this insti-
tution have succeeded in devising a
system that promises good results.
They are enthusiastically supported in
this work by the authorities. Their
aim is to be considered the best school
in the country, in their class, in this
work, and they should succeed if their
spirit suffers no setback."
No Military Atmosphere
The conditions existing in the Uni-
versity are not such as to impress the
cadets constantly with a sense of be-
ing under military discipline, said
Major Garber. The military instruc-
tion is merely a single feature. The
degree of importance attached to the
military instruction by the faculty is
equal to that of the other departments,
and no change of classification by the
war department is desirable.
The officer in charge of the R. 0.
T. C. is supported by the faculty in
the matter of military instruction and
discipline by conferring with authori-
ties of the institution and officers on
,duty there, according to the official
report. The requirements as to the
time allowed the military department
have been fully complied with. How-
ever, the efficiency in infantry instruc-
tion and training is not sufficiently ad-
vanced to warrant devoting time
to instruction in artille and other
branches. The military instruction is
sufficiently thorough to qualify the
average graduate -for a commission as
lieutenant of volunteers.

"'Although the government has ad-
vised all persons and organizations
