..."ROTC students under con
tract are not required to register
in Selective Service..."
Scores o UN men will again feel the affect of the war
when they, along with millions of other men between 20 and
45, take, part in the third selective service registration from
Saturday, Fel. 14 and Monday, Feb. 16.
There will be three registration stations for university
students. On city campus, students may register either in the
YMCA rooms of the Temple or at the coliseum and on ag
campus at room 304 ag hall. Stations will be open from 7 a. in
to 9 p. m. both days.
Registration Compulsory.
All students that have not already signed up in previous
registrations and were born between Feb. 17, .1897 and Dec. HI,
.1921 must register Saturday or Monday. Over 1,700 UN men
will be eligible for armed service following the registration.
However, according to (ieneral Guy Henninger, director of
Selective Service, students regularly enrolled under contract in
advnce KOTC are not required to register on Feb. 14 and 1G, as
they are already enrolled in the armed services.
i!en. Uenninger explained that if a student is in advanced
KOTC and is not under contract then he must register. If at
any time his KOTC contract is cancelled he must go to the local
draft board and register within five days from the date of con
tract release.
Register on Campus.
"We would appreciate it," (Jen. Uenninger said, "if all
university students would register at either the ag college
campus instead of going to other polls located in the '-ity. This
will save the student time, and it will be more convenient for
Maj. II. U. Turner, assistant selective service head, stressed
the importance of careful consideration by the student before
he indicates his home residence, lie explained. "The home resi
dence that the student puts down will indicate what draft board
wil have jurisdiction over him. It will only be the student who
can determine where his home residence will be, and it should
be the one that he is in touch with most frequently during the
Keep Contact with Board.
When the students sign up at the booths at the university,
his records will be sent to his home draft board. When atiy
student moves he should inform his board immediately, so that
they can keep in contact with him at any time.
"Men reporting for registration should be prepared to ask
nine questions." Major Turner said. "Name, age in years and
date of birth, residence, mailing address, telephone, name and
address of person who will always know address of registrant,
employer's name and address, and place of employment."
Certificate Given.
Upon completion of registration, the registrant will be given

At Harvard the men will be
given 18 months of continuous
graduate work along with 248
other additional students who will
be trained for reserve officer's
commissions. Both Gardner and
Park received $1000 scholarships.
The critical need for quarter
master officers .caused the War
department to increase the size of
the ROTC unit at Harvard. Men
were selected who had at least
three years of college work with
good scholastic average, who had
two years of basic ROTC training
or its equivalent, had met physical
examination standards and who
were definitely officer material.
Gardner was a member of Sigma
Xi and recently was named the
"Stuart scholar" at the college of
agriculture. Both he and Park
were working toward their mas
ter's degrees in agronomy before
going to Harvard. Their work
there will lead to a master degree
in business administration and
also commissions in the quarter
master corps of the army.

Aid in Panhellenic Dance Ban
With National Defense becom
ing a by-word on this campus,
students as whole were amazed
and bewildered at the recent de
cision by the Student Panhellenic
Council to move exchange dinners
from Wednesday to Friday and
Saturday nights and to do away
with hour dances.
Althought feeling that perhaps
the spring hour dances were un
necessary, most students failed to
comprehend the logic of conserving
for National Defense by promot
ing bigger and better exchange
dinners. Not only do most soror
ities and fraternities serve better
than average meals at these din
ners but with Lincoln members
attending as a rule, it means more
volume expense. Voicing the gen
eral student opinion, Polly Parmele
says, "exchange dinners would cost
much more."
"Exchange dinners just won't
work on week-ends" according to
Nancy Newbranch, who agrees
with Val Anderson that any time
saved by the elimination of hour
dances would be spent on the ex
change dinners.
"Picinic weather Is approaching
and who will want to go to an
exchange dinner" is the comment
of Lois Christie and Bob Hyde;
while Dorothy Filley, Mary Jo
Latch and Barbara Ernesty all
agree that the week-end exchange
dinners will entail much more ex

Marine Officer
Spends Final
Day on Campus
Lieutenant J. Edward Roland,
Marine Corps Liaison Officer, will
be on the campus for the last time
today to interview students inter
ested in the Marine Reserve. In
terested students are asked to re
port to the office of the dean of
student affairs.
To qualify for the Reserve, a
student must be a sophomore, jun
ior or senior in excellent physical
condition. He must belong to no
other military organization includ
ing the Army or Navy ROTC.
Accepted students will probably
be allowed to finish school before
being called to active duty but
they are liable to call at any time.
After an intensive officer's train
ing course, the applicant will be
commissioned a second lieutenant
in the Marine Corps Reserve.
