More than six hundred R.O.T.C. students passed in review on Soldiers Field yesterday afternoon as the Harvard regiment staged a final ceremony for Colonel Henry D. Jay, professor of Military Science and Tactics for the past three years.
Colonel Jay is to be transferred on December 15 to the IV Corps Area where he will fill the post of Chief of Artillery. He was presented with a silver platter last night by the Cadet Officers of the Harvard R.O.T.C. unit as as expression of their appreciation of his work here.
It is expected that he will be succeeded at Harvard by Colonel Philip Hayes, now at Fort Bragg in North Carolina. Colonel Hayes has previously been stationed with Colonel Jay at the now-famous army barracks in Hawail.
Commanded by Cadet Colonel James G. Hayes '42, twelve batteries of Field Artillery, two companies of the Quartermaster unit, and a mounted detachment of enlisted men, passed the reviewing stand yesterday.
