The Navy, said Capt.
Weber,, recognizing the turn
over of enlisted men, has ini
tiated the Star program which
provides additional education
and officer training for men
who volunteer to remain with
the Navy for a minimum of
six years. The other services
have similar programs which
endeavor to supplement the
broadly educated personnel

foreign professionals faced

of the basic weaknesses.

Lyons-Masland ROTC study
states that the campus ROTC
program should have two ob
jectives: motivation for serv
ice and pre-professional pre
paration for a career, similar
to the pre-professional courses
of study in law, engineering,
and medicine which prepare
the student for his career.
Other suggestions include
stripping the curricula of all
instruction that either dupli
cates instruction available in
regular academic depart
inents or is instruction of a
military kind which is more
effectively carried out in mili
tary installations.
