ENSIGN SCHOOL TO OCCUPY HALF OF MATTHEWS HALL
Number of Cadets for Fourth Session Will be Nearly Doubled.--300 To Take Course.
Announcement was made yesterday be the College Office that the Ensign School of the First Naval District will take over half of Matthews Hall for its summer session which begins on June 18, in order to allow for the increased size of the school, which will then train 300 men. Action to enlarge the school has been contemplated for some time by Lieutenant-Commander Charles B. Lundy, the Commandant. A number of new instructors have been arranged for and adequate classroom space will be provided.
It is the fourth session of the school which begins June 18. When the first opened a year ago at M. I. T. it was attended by not more than 50 cadets. In the fall the school was moved to the University, where it has since been located. The second session was attended by 150 and the third by 154 cadets.
The members of the school have been quartered in Holyoke House since last October and have used various University classrooms for their exercises. Until fire destroyed the building the headquarters of the Cadet School were in Dane Hall. Since that time they have been in Wadsworth House. The University has turned over Matthews Hall for the use of the men in order that the school may continue to be conducted entirely within college buildings.
