Plan and Purpose of Work.
There has been country wide mis
understanding of the Student Army
Training corps which has become part
of the government's provision for
training men and throughout the
country there has been a deluge of ap
plications from registrants for induc
tion into the camps. In more than
400 colleges throughout the country
divisions of the Student Army Train
ing corps will be established within
the next month, with the opening of
the regular terms of the college.
According to the latest instructions
from the provost marshal general, the
membership of the Student Army's

through the local draft board. The

the collegiate and the vocational. To
more easily train these men who were
pursuing their education, the govern

equipment of the various colleges
thruout the country.
For the vocational group, men who
have reached the age of 18 years and
who have not completed a high school
course but have completed an eighth
grade course are eligible, and will be
assigned to one of the vocational
groups for training.
In the collegiate division will be
received men who have attained the
age of 18 years and who have comt
pleted a high school education and
are enrolled for a regular college
A physical examination will be nec
essary for registrants in either divis

Two local colleges have been ap
proved by the government for train

At both colleges there have been a
large number of applications. It is
expected at Fargo college that by the
opening of the term there will be as
many enrolled as can be accommodat

that can be cared for.
The agricultural college has also
received a large number of applica

the collegiate division must be on

for the vocational group can be re

J. B. Withers of Surrey, has returned
from Camp Dodge, la., w'here he spent
several months in training. Mr.

The following in regard to one of
the young men who gave his life in
the service of his country, tells of how
he longed for and looked forward to
his return to his mother and home.
A veteran of two campaigns at 20
years of age, Ambrose J. Walsh of
Jamestown, N. D., made the great
sacrifice in the July offensive.
"Well, mother, I guess vacation tor
me is a thing of the past, for the
time being, at least," he wrote Mrs.
Walsh, two weeks before she receiv
ed the news of his death. "But when
it does come I am going to spend it
at home, and tell you all about 1' ranee
England, and the war over there.
Won't it be great!
