The new parade ground being made
east of Academic Hall probably will
not be used by the cadets, according
to Lieutenant Ellery Farmer, com
mandant of cadets. The place was
prepared during the summer by H. F.
Major, superintendent of grounds, for
the use of the Military School for drill,
but the quadrangle will still be used
for that purpose.
"I do not know anything about when
the parade grounds will be finished,"
said Lieutenant Farmer yesterday.
"That is entirely in the hands of Mr.
Major and I have nothing to do with
it. 1 don't know what the placed will
be used for, but this department will
not use the grounds.
"There is not enough room there to
drill two batallions; in fact, we have
not enough room on the quadrangle."
Mr. Major planned last spring to
prepare a new drill ground for the
cadets in order that the quadrangle
might not have to be used. Four ten
nis courts east of Academic Hall were
plowed up and a large rectangle lev
eled off. A cinder walk about eight
feet wide has been built on the east
side of the grounds for the formation
o; the companies. The ground is still
rough and probably will have to be
rolled before it can be used for drill.
