TUESDAY. O.CTOBER 31, 194-1 BLYTHEVILLE (ARK.) COURIER (NEWS Professors Give Training Views Majority Approve Compulsory Military Service !n Future ROUGE, La,, Oct. 31 (U.PJ— Women should be Included in a national service program, sntd 27 per cent of the Louisiana State University professors who answered a poll prepared by Die American yAfsoeiatlon of University Profes- Jfors about universal military liain- Professor Robert, J. Harris president of the L. S. U. chapter of the association staled (hat out of 115 answers, 83 professors Approved t'l compulsory military training with the following assumptions: That if military training Is required, if, should be given at a time when it would least interfere with the normal education of an, individual; The most appropriate time for training would be on com | plctiou of .high school but not earlier than 17 or later than 21 years of age. The training should be continuous for oiic year under the command of the armed forces. No exceptions or forgive ness would be permitted. The program would lie broad enough to prepare the trainee physically, mentally, emotionally and technically for the demands of modern war, and legislation for universal military training would become operative upon Ihc termination of selective service. Professois opposed to such a measure listed as their reason that America's approach is toward prevention of another war rather than preparation for war. It was suggested that international cooperation and elimination of nationalism would accomplish this. Tile majority of professors op. posed military training for physically able young men for a portion of the year witli the remainder of > I he time being spent In vocational, i mining and general education,' including where necessary n lilei 1 - acy program. They also opposed military (raining for some while others engaged, in work experience, vocational I (raining and general education, j Methods which would safeguard national defense were mentioned! by professors who turned thumbs clown on compulsory military training. They included defense by traditional methods, a profes- tional army, & sane foreign policy and voluntary enlistment. They' feared that if military entraining were made law, a caste system might develop between enlisted men' and officers, and some feared militarism generally. Of tin; 330 questionnaires sent out, only 115 were returned. '.i>'r * —— •• — j- BAAF Musician Writes Manual For Drummers Corp.
