COMPULSORY MILITARY

i
4

Definite action is being brought against the
present system of compulsory military training in American colleges by a committee composed of 45 student leaders from the leading
colleges in the United States. A petition advocating the abolition of compulsory military
training, signed by ten thousand college students representing 55 different institutions, was
presented by this committee to President Hoover Saturday.
The contents of the petition cited three definite and specific counts against the present
system. The text of the petition is as follows:
"We believe that military training courses
tend to teach doctrines contrary to the principles of the American government
In this
light, we cite a definition of democrary as involving "agitation, anarchy, discontent" from
Manual 2000-2- 5
of the War Department.
We
object to the use of government funds to inculcate beliefs to which our government is unalterably opposed.
i
"We believe that military training courses
seek to idealize war, and to inculcate a spirit
of unquestioning military obedience which is an
emotional armament of war. We quote with
approval Mr. Raymond B. Fosdick's statement
that military drill "has as its chief result. . . .a
change in the mental outlook of young people
so that they look upon war as a normal part
of life and expect to take part in it. It habituates the thought of the participants to slaughter as a rational means of setling international
difficulties, as a legitimate means of reaching
decisions." We consider that our military drill
courses are not only inconsistent with the Kel-lo- g
Pact repudiating war as a means of settling
international disputes, but constitutes a grave
danger to world peace.
"We believe, finally, that insistence upon the
compulsory feature of military training indicates that the majority of student opinion
stands opposed to it, and constitutes its own
confession of failure.
"Accordingly, we petition the Congress of the
United States to consider the mandate of student opinion on a matter which so vitally concerns it, and to outlaw the compulsory feature
of military training upon American colleges
and universities."
After reading this petition we cannot help
but ponder upon the value of the military department in this university. It is an establish

ed fact that this department is one of the most
progressive on the campus, that it is one of the
best established, that it has the interest of the
student body in mind that everything that it undertakes and that the students are interested
in it. The department of advanced military

before which is direct testimonial to the popularity of the military courses, as advanced military is not compulsory.
Summer training camps are becoming more
and more popular with college students; a great
number of the National Guard and R. O. T. C.
officers are college men. In other words the
Interest stimulated In military nfTairs during
the school years extends into life even after the
student is out of college.
Our military Hcpartmcnt has done a great
deal toward the development of the campus.
It has encouraged some of the strongest honorary societies to come on the catapus and has
developed and supported them in every possible
way. A new honorary, "Pershing Rifles," is being established this week through this department. The Kernel feels Justified in saying that
as far as Kentucky is concerned that we arc
more than proud of our military department
and we think that the abolition of it would be

THE IDLE SPECULATORS

The height of stupidity the essence of nonsense, is found in that very popular form of
student entertainment, talking for hours and
hours without aim. plan or object.
Oh, no it isn't! The desire to talk is a natural outgrowth of the much discussed gregarious Impulse. The desire to talk long and loud
and freely is a result of the group urge for
amusement. The desire to talk complete nonsense comes of the struggle fo surpass one's
fellow ramblers in foolishness. Just glance into
a favorite student "hangout" and see how everything harmonizes with nonsense production
from the young college folk draped carelessly
about the room to the suffocating spirals of
cigarette smoke over their heads. One wonders whether this production is detrimental or
beneficial to the producers.
Clarence does not rise and read a typed outline of procedure before the talking commences.
Instead he twists his ankle, peers intently under the table and severely asks Norman how
many gallon of molasses there are in a square
mile. Norman says there are twenty-od- d

then asks someone else how much "It," Henry
the Eighth had? Clarence tells him to look under a rock. Then things grow more and more
fantastic. Everyone idly speculates about what
was under the rock. Unanswerable questions
are snapped through the air. Impossible arguments are propounded and are "pompously
reasoned to a logical conclusion. And you still
wonder whether time is wasted or spent in this

The Philadelphia Bulletin says, "Man cannot dispense with science and live by creed

Has the church kept pace with modern
trends of thought, or docs it adhere so strictly
to narrow creeds that it is blind to the new
