ROTC Program Gains Popularity

In the last two days, 31 more Harvard graduate students have applied for admission into the Army Reserve Officer Training Corps (ROTC) two year program that begins next semester. Twentyfive are first year law students.

Navy ROTC has reported that since Monday, 20 more graduate students, most of them law students, have applied to their two year program.

Major Floyd D. Whitehead, assistant professor of Military Sciences, said that since Selective Service System director Gen. Lewis B. Hershey's cancellation of most graduate school deferments, the number of total applications to Army ROTC's two year program has risen from 64 to 138.
