BROWN PLANS MILITARY COURSE
Contemplates Nine Hours of Work a Week For Training Next Year.
Plans for a definite program for military training at Brown next year are being formulated. No official announcement has been made by the Faculty as yet, but tentative statements have been given.
It is very probable that the university will offer a course in military training, requiring not over nine hours a week, for which credit for three hours will be granted. The first third of the year will be devoted to drill, on a six-hour a week basis. During the winter months, when it is too cold for outdoor work, classes of instruction will be held. In the spring, drill will be taken up again and also manoeuvring and war problems.
A request has been sent to the War Department for recognition and for an officer to instruct the men, but under the stress of war conditions the Department has been too busy to attend to the matter as yet.
