OF U. OF 0. STUDENTS
: NOW JADE CLEAR
Men Returned from Army may
be Excused from
WAR EXPERIENCE NEEDED
Those Wearing Full Uniform
■ Must Carry Discharge
, "While the return of a number of sol
tlierg on the campus from periods of
several months service in the army and
jyet who still have their lower division
rating in the University the question has
been raised on the campus whether these
men will he required to drill when re
entering the University.
! In an interview with Colonel W. H. C.
[Bowen, professor of military tactics at
ithe University and who is in charge of
fthe R. O. T. C. at the University, the
(position of these men was made clear.
f“These men,” Col. Bowen said, “can by
applying to the University authorities
fbe excused from drill if it is considered
that they have had sufficient work along
(that line. They must, however, get their
,«xcuse from the authority that made
the ruling making drill compulsory for
freshmen aud sophomores, and not from
me. We are trying to get the upper
classmen to drill the R. O. T. C., es
pecially those who have had military
training but it is not compulsory.”
Must Wear Whole Uniform.
The men are required to wear the
./hole uniform or none when the E. O.
T. C. uniforms arrive, he said, but with
the S. A. T. C. uniforms which the men
now have they may wear them as they
please ns there is no authority on the
campus since the discontinuance of the
g. A. T. C. to regulate the way tli^ men
(wear them. However, Colonel Bowen
depends upon the students to see that
when a freshman wears a full uniform
that he also wears the campaign hat,
nnd designate his status as a freshman
by wearing green ribbon on the left
phest pocket. It is an order, however,
be said, that discharged men must wear
im the upper part of the left sleeve the
ted discharge chevron.
Expected to Salute.
Concerning salutes Colonel Bowen ex
rplained that when a man is in uniform
jhe ought to as a matter of courtesy
ifrom one gentleman to another give the
'military salute and though he may be
discharged from the service he has on
the uniform of the United States Army,
and as such should recognize by the.
salute a commissioned officer who also
appears in full uniform.
