The discussion is open to the
the larger army.
"More emphasis has been
placed on the ROTC program
by the army department since
the Korean incident," said the
professor of military science and
"This new emphasis," he said,
"eventually means more and
better equipment and training
aids which will permit more
realistic instruction in the de

"Subject schedules are being
revised to meet current demands
of the army. Some veterans of the
Korean conflict have already
joined the instructional staff and
more may be expected."
