Two years of military training will
be required of University students in
stead of one if the cadet corps of the
University of Missouri becomes a unit
0f the Keseno Officers' Training
Corps, established by the National De
fense Act of June 3. 191G. An appli
cation for admission to the corps is
now under consideration by the Uni
"At present 233 students are enroll
ed for the J ears' training though state
appointments which carry this provis
ion." said Major Charles W. Castle.
Professor of Military Science and Tac
,!, in the Unhcrsity. "These could
P admitted into units of the Reserve
icers Training Corps with practi
ly no change in their standing."
Lccording to Major Castle, the ser-
'ious question to be considered is the
matter of making two years' training
compulsory, instead of one year. This
would be necessary if the entire body
of cadets is to form part of the corps.
An alternative, however, would be to
form two separate battalions, those
forming part of the reserve training
corps comprising one battalion and
the students taking the required one
year of training, forming the other. In
this way the students not desiring to
take" the two jears' training would be
The entrance of the cadet corps in
to the reserve training corps would
result in the limiting of officers and
non-commissioned officers to juniors,
seniors and postgraduates, so tar as
possible. Heretofore freshmen and
sophomores with previous military
training have been given the prefer
ence over juniors and seniors with
The third and fourth years of Uni
versity military training, under the
reserve corps plans, will constitute
an advanced course. Those eligible
to take the advanced course will be
selected, after they have had the first
two years' training, by the President
of the University and the Professor
if Military Science. Five hours' work
a week will be required of those tak
ing the advanced course. In return
for this time and effort the United
States government will pay each ad
vanced student $9 a month.
The ultimate aim of the Reserve Of
ficers' Training Corps is to develop
men in civil life who may be called
upon in time of war to lead and or
ganize new forces. Students grad
uating from the training corps enter
the Officers' Reserve Corps, which
consists of men in civil life who are
qualified for service as commissioned
Students who graduate from the
military course into the Officers' Re
sen e Corps may be appointed by the
President as temporary second lieu
tenants in the regular army. They
will be attached to organizations .of
the army for six months, receiving the
aTWnnniui n.ntftiliMl . 1tir QnH TlflV
fSjf $100 a month during their ser
vice. Upon the expiration of such
service, they revert to their status as
reserve officers, returning to civil life.
The reserve training-' corps plan
calls for the furnishing of equipment
by the government. An officer ol the
army will be appointed by the Secre
tary of War to each university main
taining a reserve training corps Thl3
officer will act as quartermaster, dis
bursing and accounting for the i"iulp
ment and funds allotted to the institu
tion by the government. The plan is
also to detail one sergeant from the
regular army for each 100 student s
enrolled in the corps, to assist in the
ork of training the men. At least
100 men must be enrolled in a corps
before it can become a unit in the re
serve training corps.
"Attention should be called to the
increasing demand throughout the
country for teachers of high school
trade who are able to give military
Instruction," said Major Castle. "The
OnnnrttmU., rrn-AriA otnilonta tnklrtt?
teachers' courses to fit themselves for
TOs new branch of work cannot bo
cnderestlmntml. sinrn the demand for
military training in high scoools Is
growing stronger each day."
Exhibits Planned for Landscape Show.
Many contributions have been prom
'sed for the exhibition of landscape
and civic design, which is to be held
he from December 1 to 16. The ex
tobition will include a collection of
ater color perspectives recently
nown at the City Planning Conven
un at Cleveland, Ohio. Plans of
country clubs, playgrounds, small city
Wares and parks will he displayed.
Expect Becord Crowd at
Indications point to a record crowd
when the Timers and the Jayhawkers
meet at Lawrence Thanksgiving Day,
says the Kansas City Star. W. O.
Hamilton, manager of athletics at K.
U. said Saturday night that he al
ready had received requests for more
than five thousand tickets. Manager
Hamilton announced that tickets will
be placed on sale in Lawrence and
Kansas City tomorrow.
The prices for the annual game will
. .. . . . s.
ue me same as last year, aieacner
seats will cost $2 and box seats $2.50.
Manager Hamilton announced that
until Wednesday mall orders will be
given the preference, the requests be
ing filed and filled in the order in
which they are received, providing re
quests are accompanied by the price
of the tickets and an additional twelve
cents to cover cost of registering re
Missouri will be given the north side
of McCook Field and Kansas the south
side. The Missouri seats will be sent
to C. L. Brewer. Mr. Brewer will
make arrangements for the Missouri
alumni in Kansas City to procure
scats in the Missouri section.
The Kansas management will be
prepared to seat fifteen thousand per
sons at the game and Manager Hamil
ton says there will be no delay in en-,
tering the field. There will be seven
teen entrances. No cars will be ad
mitted to the field, but the K. U. au
thorities will make adequate arrange
ments for the parking of cars just out
side of the playing field and the park
ing arrangements will be in the hands
of responsible men. Manager Hamil
ton expects a great crowd of motorists
from Kansas City and from all
through Kansas and will devote spe
cial attention to seeing that cars are
quickly parked and well cared for.
A new plan in regard to selling
tickets will be used again this year.
Blocks of seats, as many as request
ed, are being sold to the fraternities
and other organizations of the two
universities, the purchasing body pay
ing for the seats at the time they are
turned over. Then the frats or what
ever the organizations may be, dis
pose of the tickets as they see fit
"This method serves to bring con-"
genial crowds together, making the
spirit better, the rivalry finer and the
whole tone of the great thrqng bet
ter," Hamilton declares.
