MASON CITY GLOBE-GAZETTE, APRIL 23 I 9;{(i THREE MING OPPOSES ENFORCED DRILL Majority of S. U. I. Students Would Fight If U. S. Were Invaded. IOWA CITY, u?)--University of Iowa students, a'"peace .day plebiscite" in which nearly a fifth of the student body voted Wednesday shows, disfavor compulsory military training as now enforced at the university. Voting on four peace questions, the students cast 1,280 ballots and later heard former Senator Smith W. Brookhart advocate a "civilian army of defense" and "the scrapping of the navy's battleships." The students opposed compulsory military training 1,030 to 245, with 724 voting for voluntary training, 306 against all military training. Majority Would Fight. A majority of the students said they would fight for the United States if the country were invaded. Seventy-six said they would fight in a war of aggression, and 191 said they would refuse to fight in any war. A majority of students voting favored entrance of - the United States into a new. league of nations; 337 favored entrance into the world court; and 188 opposed affiliation with either group. Favors Voluntary Drill. Brookhart, a marksman instructor during the World war, declared he favored voluntary military training, that he would participate in a war of defense but not of aggression, . and that the United States should-neither join the world court nor the league of nations "until the competitive economic system is displaced by a co-operative system in the world." Brookhart contended that "a civilian army is an army of peace, but it has proven it can fight if war is a necessity for defense," and he argued that such an army is more efficient than the professional army.
