Keep it before the public that every male student
must spend three years of lis university course fire
paring for war.
In this issue will be found the first chapter of a
true story, offered by a student who spent six years
of his life on the sea.
Lieutenant Pershing surely deserves praise for the
improvements he has made in the battalion. The
latest innovation is the establishment of a permanent
target range near the penitentary. Hereafter, in the
armory, each company will receive special instruc
tion in adj'usting the rifle for shooting. The compan
ies will take turn about in going to the range on
Saturdays. As this work i? made a part of the mili
tary instruction, every cadet in the battalion will be
required to take it. Consequently all will receive a
thorough knowledge of rifle shooting. In the future
the lieutenant expects to have target practice in the
fall as well as in the spring term.
We believe it would be a good plan for each com
pany to have a rifle team composed of five or six of
the best marksmen in the company. Then we might
have competition between them and decide whoarethe
best m the battalion. In that way, we could have a
rifle team that would be hard to beat. There is no
reason why we cannot hare a rifle team that will be
a credit to the university and to the state.
Now that we have organized our university debat
ing club, let us see that the interest does not cease.
We surely have enough raw material to work upon.
The upper classes have been wanting something ot
this kind for a long time. The university club will
draw the students all together where equals will meet,
equals. There is no reason why we cannot have a
rousing debate every two weeks.
Although some were not in favor of admitting
the girls, The Hesperian believes they will make
he debates much more interesting. If the ladies take
part in the debates, we will have larger audiences to
address. That fact alone will add enthusiasm. The
larger the audience, the harder the -debaters will
work. We want to have the chapel crowded at every
meeting. If it is, no one need to fear about the
quality of the debates. There is another reason why
The Hesperian thinks the young women will
