will be made, to provide reading matter, writing materials and rest rooms,
where the men may find recreation.

Arrangements have been completed
by Captain H. N. Royden, command
ant, and authorized by President Mc- Vey, whereby the battalion of the Uni
versity with its cadet officers will ac
tively engage In guard duty next week,
so that they will be able to do regula
tion duty upon the arrival of the four
hundred drafted men who come May
7, for special technical training.
Captain Royden has arranged for
the establishing of guard tents on the
campus for the period from Wednesday night, May 1 to' Saturday night,
May 11, making ten days' guard duty.
The time will be divided so as to pro
vide for two guards from each of the
five companies of the battalion, and
the members of the battalion will be
excused from class room duties on the.
day following the night on which they.
This means that beginning May 1,
one company of the five will be appointed to do guard duty for twenty-fou- r
continuous hours on the campus
and at the Fair Grounds, the site
selected for the quartering of the four
hundred men. This company will be
relieved after its duty by another com
pany which in turn wil ldo guard duty
for one day. After each company has
done duty for its respective days, the
schedule will be resumed as started.
The guard mounting beginning each
day at 3:30 p. m. as designated by
Captain Royden follows: May 1, Company A; May 2, Company B; May 3,
Company C; May 4, Company D; May
5, Company E; May 6, Company A;
May 7, Company B; May 8, Company
C; May 9, Company D; May 10, Company E.
Captain Royden will also arrange
for daily drill or ceremony on each
day for the period the company doing
duty serves, Sunday excepted. The
ceremony on Saturday, May 4, and
May 11, will be held at 1:30 p. m.,
and on other days at 3:30 p. m.
This is the program that Major Gar- ber approved in giving the University
its rating as one of the universities of
the country which complies with all
military regulations and which insures
it a specified number of candidates for
any national training camps for offi
cers to be held in the future Major
