Nat Buckley at Ft. Snelling, Minn.
Fort Snelling, Minn., July 12.-- Four hundred college students from Missouri, Arkansas, Kansas, Nebraska, Iowa, Minnesota and the Dakotas are spending six weeks this summer at the Reserve Officers' Training Corps Camp here, taking military instruction in the mornings with athletics and recreation in the afternoons and evenings.
The officer-instructors, while the camp is not yet sufficiently advanced so they can give final ratings, are pleased with the work of the students to date. Everything a student does tells on the record made by his college unit.
If he shoots well, it helps his school record, while if he does poorly it hurts. In the same way each student's drilling helps or hinders his school. Some of the colleges, in an effort to make their school stand up well, have adopted rules that any offenders who hurt the school record will be paddled. These rules were made by the students, so that if any of them come to grief, they have the knowledge that they voted their own punishment.
