ADVANTAGES OF NAVAL TRAINING.

NO WRITER ATTRIBUTED

We wish to call attention again to the lecture to be given in the Union this evening by Captain C. C. Marsh of the Navy. The purpose of this talk is to present to the students of the University a plan, the details of which have not yet been worked out, for giving college men an opportunity to have the experience and training of a couple of months at sea during the summer. The merits of the suggestion are numerous. In the first place, any such trip has a democratic influence. The educated man comes into contact with others who have not had as many advantages for intellectual training, and learns to appreciate their work and understand their point of view. Then, too, this influence may work both ways, and afford others the opportunity to understand better the college man. It is hardly necessary to enumerate the other advantages of this proposed naval training. The value of the discipline, the experience to be derived from travel, and the physical development obtainable are obvious benefits. But, in order to work out the details of this plan and to apply it successfully, the co-operation of a large number of students is necessary, and since the proposal is so meritorious, it is hoped that enough support will be forthcoming from the student body to insure its adoption.
