NAVAL RULING ON DEFERMENT OF COLLEGIANS This dispatch should be of deep interest to many young men just finishing high school arid ready for college. Though the dispatch conies from Buena Vista college, it doubtless applies as well to other higher institutions of learning. Storm Lake, Apr. 1 — Buena Vista college has been approved by the United Stales navy to enlist students in the navy V-l program. President Henry Olson has been informed. The V-l plan permits physically, fit sivjdents between the ages of 17 and 19 to remain on the inactive list the first two years of .college. ' By passing a comprehensive examination at the .end of two years, the student can go on and finish his four-year college course, at the end of which time he will be assigned to V-7 or V-5. President Olson said. Buena Vista will enroll students for the course beginning with the summer school session starting Monday, June 1. Gradu aling high school seniors and freshmen and sophomores now in college are eligible if they mee age and physical requirements. The V-l program gives young people an excellent opporiunil to serve their country while gei ling a four-year college educa lion. President Olson'pointed out _ "A trained man with a college background is of much mor value in America's war effor than a lad of 17 who goes into service as a private." Beuna Vista was first college in Iowa to be approved for the V-l program. President Olson said. Only accredited colleges are accepted for the navy training.
