PRESIDENT LOWELL WIRES GENERAL SCOTT TO SECURE IMMEDIATE ESTABLISHMENT OF RESERVE OFFICERS' UNIT.
February 3, 1917.
General Hugh L. Scott,
Washington, D. C.
Cannot amendment of regulations as proposed by War Department be approved and reserve officers' training unit be established here at once? Condition very discouraging. In case of war we want to do everything we can to furnish men to army and navy, but inability to obtain unit will hamper us greatly. A. LAWRENCE LOWELL. February 3, 1917.
President A. Lawrence Lowell,
Letter sent you this morning from Adjutant-General's office explains how unit may be organized at Harvard at once. Suggest application be mailed immediately, using form given in General Orders 49. H. L. SCOTT, Chief of Staff.
