ROTC now has over 185.000 members in the U. S., he said. The Memphis State unit has an enrollment of 785 students. ROTC is required for the first two years in colleges which have units, Col. Hoffman pointed out. Advanced ROTC, taken during the last two college years, is voluntary, though most advanced students may get deferments. Graduates of the ROTC program are obligated to serve two years in the Armed Forces when called. Deferments, which may be given to as much as 85 per cent of enrollment, are based on academic standing and on the assumption that the member will be able to complete his course and be eligible to accept a cmmission. Col. Hoffman said. Deferments may be cancelled if work is not kept up to standard, he added. COUNCIL (Continued from Page 1) ditures during this period have been $61,718.06.

Mr. Warlii'ld said, but no decision was ever rendered. The CAA has itskrd that die case lie re-opened and a decision made, he said. The Regional Air Spare Sub-Committee also discussr-d the Blytlie- ville situation and agreed joint .use i would be feasible. The Air Force \ wanted exclusive use, however, Mr. | Wai-field said, and since tlune was j no request from [he City of Blytheville, the exclusive use was granted.

Navy, Air Force, CAA, airlines executives and Federal Communications Admini.stra- tion.
