Mason City Globe-Gazette (Newspaper) - May 13, 1960, Mason City, Iowa North Iowas Daily Newspaper Edited for the Home MASON CITY GLOBEGAZETTE VOL 98 The Newspaper That Makes All North lowans Neighbors Associated Press and United Press International FuD Wires MASON CITY IOWA FRIDAY MAY 13 1960 70 a Copy This Paper of Two One No 184 Natural resources of N Iowa given plug by Schroeder BY THE ASSOCIATED PRESS Renewed efforts to preserve the natural resources of North Iowa were urged at West Union Friday by State Sen Jack Schroeder candidate for the Republican nomination for gov ernor In remarks delivered at a SchroederforGovernor break fast he said The tremendous outdoor recreational facilities provided by nature in this area need to be vigorously promoted We must assure harmony in the conservation commission at all times in order to derive the greatest benefits from the abundant and varied recreational areas in North Iowa The Republican Caravan of Candidates for the primary

and Rollo Bergeson and gubernato rial candidates William H Nich olas and Norman Erbe Mandatory ROTC on way out By JAMES MORISSEAU New York Herald Tribune News Service NEW YORK Compulsory military training in the Reserve Officers Training Corps ROTC will be discontinued next Sep tember at Ohio State Wisconsin Rutgers and Bucknell Universi ties At scores of other campuses across the country including Arizona State California Cor nell Michigan State Missouri Oklahoma and Oregon State student and faculty groups are campaigning for the elimination of compulsory ROTC The trend conceivably could end with the disappearance of the twoyear compulsory ROTC program from all but the hand ful of military colleges in the United States BEHIND THIS development is a growing sentiment among stu dents often shared by faculty members that compulsory ROTC cuts into the time avail able for the regular academic program and is a violation of academic freedom At the same time the Defense Department has left the choice between com pulsory and voluntary ROTC up to the colleges The overall ROTC program is the prime source of junior offi cers for the armed forces The Defense Department gives the annual requirement for ROTC graduates over the next 10 years as 21000 14000 for the Army 4000 for the Air Force and 3000 for the Navy At present 271656 college stu dents are enrolled in various ROTC programs Army ROTC enrolls 155871 the Air Force 103100 and the Navy 12685 A total of 501 ROTC units are maintained at 313 colleges and universities Basic ROTC in the freshman and sophomore years is compulsory at 177 of the 313 BUT THE BACKBONE of the program is the 64 land grant colleges and universities which are required to maintain ROTC programs under the terms of the Morrill Act of 1862 Because of their relatively large enrollments and compul sory basic programs the land grant institutions have tended in the past to send a dispropor tionate number of students into the voluntary advanced ROTC program to earn commissions But the Morrill Act while re quiring ROTC programs at the land grant schools does not make them compulsory In ef fect where there are compul sory programs they have been imposed by the colleges them selves Now many of the col leges again acting on their own initiative are moving to make ROTC completely voluntary I HAVE NO big money back of me in this campaign said Reeve Waverly attorney I have no paid workers no expen sive campaign headquarters and staff in Des Moines The other senatorial candi dates commented mainly on the incident of the American spy plane the Russians shot down Stringer said Democratic Gov Herschel Loveless seems com pletely naive in complaining of spying on Russia Russia has the most exten sive spy system of any country in history he said For us to ignore this and not reciprocate as Loveless would have us do would precipitate national dis aster BERGESON WHO has been critical of the spy revelations said lowans should make known whether they approve of United States military flights over Rus sia or other countries Former Lt Gov Nicholas said his program in the race for gov ernor is clear that he will op pose
