ROTC suffered Students in the corps often heard hoots and-or hisses as they drilled. Bui all that's changed, to hear Brig Gen. Robert Arter and Maj Benjamin Waller tell Has they. 1 did in an interview The/general commands' Ihe third r.egion KOTC with headquarters al Kort Riley, Kan It covers eight states and 65 colleges and universities The region includes Kansas, Oklahoma, Texas. Louisiana Alabama, Mississippi, Arkansas and New Mexico. Major Waller is in charge of recruitment for minorities in the region. Minoriiies means nonwhiles and women. The bes( evidence that Ihe ROTC image is shining again: for the first lime in eight years, enrollmenl is on (he upswing. Across the nation, according to Gen. Artcr. nearly 40,000 are participating al the 291 host colleges and universities. This is an 18.4 per cent increase over last year's enrollment. Women, first admitted to the corps on a trial basis at nine colleges in 1972, can join any unil now. Lasl year, when the corps welcomed women in any unil. 3000 joined. This year, nearly 6,000 females signed up --a 100 per cent increase. In answer lo a question. Gen. Artcr said --"Yes. if they wish!" The question: Do the women drill, shoulder rifles, lake marksmenship training? "Some of our best marksmen ire women," the general said. "They are not required lo lake his training or drill but many of hem want it." Gen. Arter just completed a our of the schools in his urisdiction. He talked wild the ollege presidents and with the eads of the military science eparlments. He found acceptance of ROTC 'right back up Ihere" in a front- unning position. This, ac- ording to (he.general, fits with recent University of Michigan oil that found "a high regard r the military." i^'Jt cam^ out a highly respied institution," he said. The biggest deficiency in the officer corps of the U S. Army is (hi; number of blacks, according lo Major Waller, a black. Aboul five per cent of ihe officers are black. He said this should be al ieasl 20 per cent. In. his region. Major Waller said this past year the ROTC enlistment by blacks was up considerably. Both (he general and the major said the guaranteed job and leadership training are recognized by Ihose signing up blacks, whites, women. They lossed out (his statistic- 23 per cent of (he men in America making $100.000 a year or more had ROTC training For 1,300 students going lo school on a ROTC scholarship, Ilicre is freedom from school bills, plus $100 a month spending money during his or her four years of college. There were some 12.000 applicants for (he 1,300 full scholarships (his year. But the majorily of KOTC students are not on scholarship and pay their own tuition and cosls the firsl two years in Ihe program. On reaching (heir junior year, however, the nonscholarship students receive S100 a monlh. The four-year scholarship sludem must spend lour years in the Army upon graduation on receipt of a commission as a second lieutenant. The non- scholarship student can accept a commission as a second lieutenant and serve a number of ways. These include serving from three months on active duly plus seven and one half years in Ihe reserve. Or -two years active duly plus four years in (he reserve. Ninety women this year received the four-year ROTC scholarships. Every one was in the lop 15 per cent of her class. Forty were valedictorians. The males who received (he scholarships also ranked high and won many honors in high school. ROTC isn'l so much playing soldier --drilling and all that. During the school year a lot of emphasis is on teaching corps members to lead and motivate their peers. They also are given opportunities to develop self- confidence, selfdiscipline and management skills. Tor what it's worth, here's another statistic the general passed on: 19 per cent of all U.S. Senators. U.S. Representatives and stale governors had ROTC under their belts by the time they graduated colle'ge. fllK HKSEHVE Officers Training Corps (KOTO is OIUT mure aLTepliiblc on college c;mi|iiiscs.
