ALTERNATIVE HAVE Would Make Those Exempt Jjot Desiring to Take the Full Term. 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 versity authorities. "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 exempt. 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 less experience. 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 officers. 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."

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 turn letter. 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.
