Stiff Courses to Be Offered in
and Rifle Practice.
Appeal Made to Substitute Mili
tary Training on Schedule
Although unable at the present time
to give any definite g< vernmental sanc
tion to the movement in the University
to organize a volunteer officers’ reserve
corps, .Major General Leonard Wood, in
n letter received yesterday by Lr. War
ren D. Smith urged the pushing of the
plans for the organization of the corps
and offered some practical advice as to
the mode of procedure and held out the
hope of its becoming a permanent
The course in voluntary military drill
which is to be ins.ailed shortly will be
no mere routine or smattering attempt
at surAee instruction according to a
decision reached by Lhe committee at its
meeting yesterday afternoon. The mem
bers of the committee are Eric W. Al
len, chairman; lien Williams, II. M.
Kingsbury and Karl Onthank. Lieuten
ant Willis Shippman, federal army of
ficer in charge of the loca’ O. N. G. also
attended the meeting.
The proposal will be put to the stud
ents on the basis of a three-phase
course, giving the stiff instruction which
the committee says /ill be necessary it
the work of the voluntary officers’ re
serve corps is to oe of benefit before
the end of the semester. The work
will be divided into a topographical
course in map making under the direc
tion of Dr. Waarren D. Smith of the
geology department, actual drill and in
struction in the manual of arms, the
school of squad, the school of the officer
and the like, and rl.te practice at the
rifle range of the Eugene Itifle Club.
The wffrk will pi’jbably consist of a
minimum of four hours drill a week,
this to substitute in the case of under
classmen in place of gymnasium. A
part of Saturday would be given over
to either field work in map making or
rifle practice at the range, alternating
these two forms of instruction.
It was decided that the committee had
lived its life as a voluntary committee
and that from this point on the best
work could be done if the committee
actually represented the University. Ac
cordingly an appeal as made to Pres
ident Campbell to re ognize the body as
| an official faculty committee and also
incorporate the vo) ntary drill move
. merit in the work of the University.
"The advantage of the few mouths
remaining in this semester well spent n
drilling cun hardly be exaggerated",
said E. \Y. Allen, chairman of the
The assistance of Lieut. Shippman
lias been promised and as well as the
support of the local it. \. G. officers.
Arrangements will probably be made to
allow the members of the corps to take
out membership in the Eugene Gun
( lull at student r.tes and thus have
the use of the range for practice. The
entire expense of the corps . the iu
j dividual will be very slij lit, consisting
of the price of several drill books, mem
bership in the club and the like.
