REST INITIAL PARADE
OF R. O. T. C. YESTERDAY
Entire Cadet Corps Will Be Pre
sented Next Thursday to
The R. 0. T. C held its first parade of
the year yesterday afternoon on Francis
Quadrangle. Although the corps has
been drilling little more than a month,
everything went off in good shape. Of
ficers said this wasjhe best parade that
ha ever been held at the beginning of
any school year. They attribute this to
the fact that the cadet officers as a
whole are more experienced than usual.
and several of them have had the ad
vantage of attending one or more R.
O. T. C summer camp.
It was announced that a parade and
review will be held at t o'clock next
Thursday afternoon, at which lime the
entire cadet corps including ImiIi the
infantry and artillery units, will lie pre
sented to the honorary colonel, Mis
Gladys AIcKinley, who was selected by
the members of the corps jut before
the Alibtary Ball lat spring.
The band under the direction of
George Venablc was out for the parade
and added much to the occasion. Ac-
cording to the inspecting officers who
viit the University each year, this band
is the equal of. if not superior to, any
other cadet band in the Seventh Corps
It is possible that many of the fresh
men will have their uniforms before the
parade next Thursday, as the time is
already pjst when the new uniforms
should have been delivered.
As this is one of the big events in the
military department it is expected that
J large crowd -will lie in attendance.
