MAKING THE STATUS OFFICIAL.
The plans of the government to keep college men at their
studies are at last assuming definite form and with the opening
of the University in the Fall men on the campus will stand as
a recognized military body, assured of being able to complete
their courses without interrruption so long as they do satisfac
Since the rush of college men to the colors first indicated
that something must be done to insure a generation of trained
men in the years that are to follow the conclusion of the war, the
plea has gone out to college men to stay with their studies until
called. Many of them have taken the advice, but it is not sur
prising that many have not. Even with President Wilson and
other high officials urging them to remain in college, it has
taken a lot of courage for able-bodied young men to keep from
enlisting. The tendency of the unthinking has been to condemn
them as slackers to a more or less extent, and away from the
campus they had nothing to distinguish them as carrying out the
wishes of their government.
Enlistment in the new cadet organization will be purely vol
untary, but will place all of the men who do enlist on an equal
standing with men enlisted in any other branch of the service.
They will wear some insignia to distinguish them as enlisted
men and they will be subject to call at any time by the president.
Secretary Baker’s statement, printed on another page, gives
a general idea of the new organization and makes entirely clear
the fact that men enlisted in the organization will be allowed to
continue their studies until they reach the age of twenty-one.
One further point which will be asked by the University
students is what assurance they will have that they will be al
lowed to finish their courses after reaching draft age. This is
covered in a telegram received this morning by Karl Onthank
from President Campbell, in Washington. As fast as the men
reach draft age they will, upon recommendation of their com
manding officer, be detailed back into college to complete their
courses. These provisions, however, will apply only to those
men who enlist in the new corps, a unit of which will be estab
lished on the campus just, as soon as authority to do so is grant
ed by the War Department.
