Education A Patriotic Duty
In these war times every technically trained man is a national
asset. The Colleges as well as other agencies, have a real contribu
tion to make towards the winning of the war. The special interests
of institutions must be subordinated to the one pu'rpose now before
President Wilson has declared that it is the patriotic duty of
young men under twenty-one years of age to seek a technical edu
cation, and if already in College, to continue and complete their
A sufficient number of technically trained men is so essential
that the War Department has made the following provisions to en
courage college students arriving at draft age before graduation
to continue and cdmplete their courses. Immediately upon gradua
tion, such students 'enter the service in their special lines.
1. Qualified engineering students may enlist in the Engineer
ing Enlisted Reserve Corps and be placed on the inactive list until
graduation. At graduation they will have an opportunity to enter
an Engineer Officers' Training Camp to try for a Commission, or
they enter the Engineers' Corps as a private.
2. Qualified engineering students may enlist in the Naval Re
serve, and on graduation may enter the U. S. Navy Steam Engineer
ing School and train for Ensign's Commissions. (Students in the
Naval Reserve will likely not be eligible for membership in the R.
0. T. C.)
3. Qualified agricultural students in the Senior Class may en
list in the Quartermaster's Reserve Corps to be called to active
duty in that branch of the service after graduation.
The Secretary of War has distinctly stated that young men un
- Ider draft age who have entered upon a technical college education
can render the nation the greatest service by being educated first
and serving afterwards. Young men sixteen or seventeen years of
age can graduate by the time they reach the draft age and be pre
pared for maximum usefulness in the military establishment.
Engineers and technicians cannot be made over night, and
our Government will be seriously embarrassed if young men refuse
to: begin now the training necessary to keep up the supply of such
men both for the needs of the army and for carrying out the war
program at home.
After the war the greatest opportunity in history will be pre
dented to men trained in Agriculture, Engineering and other tech
nical lines. If the U. S. is to he a leader in the reconstruction of the
world, she must have men trained for the task.
