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 tory work. 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.
