Eight Harvard men, students in Naval Science 2, will leave tomorrow on a five-day cruise on the battleship Utah, which is sailing to Rockland, Maine, for her engineering trials.
Captain Littlefield of the Utah, owing to the fact that several of his junior officers will be temporarily absent, notified the Harvard Naval Science Department that eight members of that branch of the R. O. T. C. might make the cruise. They will rank as midshipmen, and the only expense is one dollar a day for meals. The Utah will leave early Saturday morning and return Thursday.
The Utah has been in dry-dock for several days in South Boston to undergo final repairs for the engineering g trials over the one mile course at Rockland. Since the Utah has recently been overhauled and modernized, offices are obtaining data as though for a new ship.
