TIM CAMP RULES
OBSERVED IN DRILL
Military Affairs Committee De
cides Course Shall Be One
in Regular Army
POWER GIVEN COL BOWEN
Commandant to Arrange Class
es, Fix Credits and Hours;
No Drill Saturday.
Drill at the University will be taken
up this terra under the rules and regula
tions of the United States Reserve Of
ficers’ training camps.
At a meeting of the committee on mili
tary affairs recently, a resolution was
introduced which read as follows:
"It is the sense of this committee that
we are carrying out the order of the
board of regents in instituting drill at
the University, by establishing a course
in military instruction, which shall re
quire as its minimum the requirements
of the Reserve Officers’ training camps.”
The committee gave full authority to
the commandant of students, in the per
son of Colonel AVilliam H. C. Bowen, to
institute such classes and courses as he
jnay deem necessary, fixing their credits,
and their hours.
Time Asked Is Minimum
As the requirements now stand, drill
will be done away with on Saturday
mornings, but will be taken by all stu
dents on all five class days for 36 min
utes, which is the minimum time required .
by the rule governing the training camps.
The drill must be taken in periods
amounting to three hours a week. By
dividing this up into five periods of 36
minutes, all requirements can be met,
and the drill will not have to be given
on Saturday mornings.
‘‘We are leaving it up to the com
mandant,” said Karl Onthank, yester
one will be required to take the courses,
in extra training as he wishes. He will
have complete charge of the military af
fairs—that is what we got him for.”
“If the Saturday classes are taken
up it will be by volunteer students only,”
he continued. Probably special instruc
tion will be given at this time, but no
one will be requiredto take the courses.
“No credits will be given—at least
not until next term—because the time
remaining is so short. The granting of
credits will be entirely up to the com
mandant, as he is the man in charge.”

“I have met with very enthusiastic

“Not one of those I have approached

In fact, I have met with a perfect em

within a reasonable length of time.”
The first part of the performance
will be a real, old-fashioned minstrel,
with four live endmen and a witty in

of a triple quartet, who will waTble old
time negro melodies and folk songs.

SOPHS DEFEAT FROSH
WITH 3-0 SOCCER SCORE
Steers and Madden Star for Second Year
Team—Jacobber and Schmeer
The sophomore class showed their
superiority over the freshmen, when
they were victorious, with a score of
3—0, in the annual freshman-sophomore
soccer game, Tuesday afternoon.
In the first period the ball was al
most constantly in freshman territory.
Due to the defensive playing of Bill
Steers and Dwight Parr, the freshmen
were unable to bring the sphere beyond
the center of the field, while the second
yard forward line continually rushed it
to their opponents’ goal posts. The
lopsidedness of the ball made the reg
istering of goals difficult this period.
Madden managed to place the necessary
“English” on the pigskin on but one
occasion, and the half ended with the
sophomores ahead, with one goal.
The freshmen kicked off at the be
ginning of the second period.
The freshman backfield, consisting of
Leslie, Trowbridge and Jacobberger, was
kept busy booting the ball from in front
of the frosh goal, but the sophomore
offensive was too strong for the first-1
year men. Only twice during the period
did the frosh bring the ball near the
sophomore line, and on both occasions
Margason booted it for out of danger.
Madden scored all three goals made
in both periods. Bain and Kelleher
showed some strong offensive work al
so, while Steers and Parr were placed

boxes of the choicest kind of apples
come to you ns a perfect surprise?
That is whlat 1ms happened to two mem
