(UPI) —The Army and Navy have for-mally announced that they in-tend to phase out their ReserveOfficer Training Corps (ROTC)programs at Yale University.The secretary of the univer-sity, Reuben Holden, announcedSunday that the Army will endits program at the end of the1970-71 school year and that theNavy plans to graduate its lastmidshipman in 1073.The Army plans an intensifiedone-year course for students whohave completed summer camptraining. The KOTC programusually takes two years.The Navy will continue itsprogram, commissioning all stu-dents now enrolled but acceptingno new recruits.The formal announcement thatthe two ROTC programs will bedropped from the curriculumwas preceded by a faculty voteto withdraw academic credit forthe military training courses.Yale did not renew contractswith the two branches of thearmed forces.Yale President KingmanBrewster Jr., said in June he re-gretted that contracts with thetwo services had not been re-newed and suggested an alter-nate form of service might beestablished."My own hope is that theservices will before too long findit possible to expand off-campusprograms . . . which allow a per-son to receive a commissionupon graduation but to take histraining off-campus, largely dur-ing the summer," Brewstersaid.At the commencement forROTC officers in May he saidthe graduates probably would be"applauded or attacked as anendorsement of the national se-curity policy of the moment.""Precisely because of thedepth of disagreement which di-vides us so sorely I wish tohonor you for undertaking anational service whos« necessityis not dependent upon the rightsor wrongs of any given policy,"Brewster said.Army ROTC was establishedat Yale in 1916 and the Navy of-ficially created its own programin 1928.Air Force ROTC was begun atYale in 1949 as a division of theArmy program and was phasedout in 1956 with the last classgraduating in 1958.WANTED IN BOMBING — A nationwidesearch has been launched for these fouryoung men, who are charged in tlie fatalbombing of the Army Mathematics Re-search Center at the University of Wis-consin in Madison.
