10 Per Cent R. O. T. C. Men Rejected

About 10 per cent of the men who have applied for admission to the Reserve Officers' Training Corps have been turned down on account of physical disabilities. Of the men whose applications have been accepted about 15 per cent. would be rejected by a recruiting station examining men for admission into the regular army. The majority of the men turned down have defective feet, a weak heart, poor eyes, or difficulty in hearing.

Dr. Lee, who is examining all candidates for admission into the Training Corps, is rejecting only those applicants whose physical disabilities are most conspicuous. Men who have minor defects with the eyes, heart, feet, etc., are admitted into the Unit if they desire to enter. Those who are rejected on their first physical examination are to present themselves at Weld 4 in order to find out if they are eligible for admittance under the new requirements.
