RESERVE OFFICERS' TRAINING CORPS.
Under the terms of the Land Crant Act of 1862 the State received certain grants
Federal lands, the income of which must be devoted to the maintenance of
Ileges of agricult'ure and mechanical arts, including a course in military training.
le National Defense Act of June 3, 1916, as amended by the Art of June 4, 1920,
abolished the Reserve Officers" Training Corps and authorized the Secretary of
ar to provide the necessary in tructors and equipment and to prescribe a standard
urse of instruction. The War Department has established at the Unilersity of
orida both an infantry aml a field urlillery unit.
These units are authorized by Congress for the purpose of providing a corps of
serve officers of the U. S. Army, which, in case of a major emergency, will constitute
e officer personnel of our civilian Army. It is a part of the approved military policy
the United States to maintain a small regular army. When, however, the nation
threatened with war, and large additional armed forces are raised, it will be
cessary that this force he provided immediately with trained officers. Future
irs will be so sudden that the long period that we had before entering the Workl
ar, in which to secure officers from training camps, will not be available. A study
our military history shows that many lives have been sacrificed in the early stages
our wars solely because of the scarcity of trained officers capable of leading our
en in combat. Therefore, our Government is attempting to rectify this condition
providing an officers' personnel in advance, from college graduates, so that in
se of emergency they may immediately step into positions of leadership and acquit
The War Department maintains at the University of Florida a personnel of thirty-
ree members of the regular army and equipment valued at nearly $400,000. In-
aded in this equipment is a complete battery of 75nun. horse-drawn field artillery,
nothing and equipment for a battalion of infantry, and clothing and partial equip-
ent for a battalion of field artillery. The University of Florida has provided offices,
assrooms, ample storage space, and excellent drill and maneuver groumls. A
odern stable has recently been completed for the fiebl artillery, and work is under
my for the improvement of drill and parade grounds, and for the constiuction of
The Reserve Officers' Training Corps course of instruction envers four years, the
-st two of which are compulsory. Students who regi ter as freshmen as sophommes
the colleges of Agriculture, Engineering, Pharmacy, Teachers. and in the course
ading to the degree of Bachelor of Arts in the College of Arts and Sciences are
signed to the field artillery unit. Students who register us fredulen or sophomores
I the colleges of Architecture, Commerce aml Journalism. in the course leading to
the degree of Bachelor of Science in the College of Arts and Sciences, and all
irregular students, are assigned to the infantry unit.
The Basic Course in both the field artillery and the infantry covers the first two
years, and is usually pursued during the fredunan aid sophomore years. Satisfac-
tory completion of it is required of all students unless they are exempt on reasons
ghen under Exemptions. The object of the liasic Course is to qualify the student to
perform the duties of a non-conunissioned oilker. The first year of the course is
designed to qualify him for the duties of a private.
THE ADVANCED COL RSE.
Students who complete the Basic Course and are selected by the Professor of
Military Science and Tactics and the President of the University may elect the
Advanced Course, which course may lead to a commission in the Officers' Reserve
Corps of the U. S. Army. Students registered in this course are required to carry it
to completion, and during the period are paid $9.00 per month by the War Depart-
ment. An advanced course summer-camp is compedsory, usually between the junior
and senior years. The War Department pays all expenses for the camp, including
mileage, rations, medical attendance, clothing, and laundry service, and in addition
the pay of the seventh grade, United States Army.

quired to take only one year of the Basic Course, while students who have had two
years or more of college work are exempt from Military Science.
(6) Students taking courses of one year's duration, or less.
(7) Students who are citizens of foreign countries.
Students exempt from Military Science for any reason whatever must, in order
to receive a degree, offer an equal number of hours of other course work in lieu
of Military Science. Choice of these courses must in all cases be approved by the
dean of the college in which the student is registered.
The R. O. T. C. at the University of Florida is organized into a endet regiment
of two hattalions, one made up of infantry students and the other of artillers mindents.
The practical instruction conducted in the open is carried on through this organiza-
tion. l\luch of the actual instruction is done by upper classmen. therelo affording
them opportunities in the art of command and leadership. The Regimental Head-
quarters consist of a Cadet Regimental Colonel and Stall. Each battalion is com-
manded by a Cadet Lieutenant Colonel with appropriate Staff.
The infantry battalion is organized into three companies, A, B, and C, of fresh-
men, and one company, D, of upper classmen. The outstanding cadet leaders are
assigned as the officers of these organizations. The freshmen companies cover close
and extended order drill, tent-pitching, scouting and patrolling, and combat prin-
ciples to include the platoon. To Company D are assigned all upper classmen not
assigned to the other companies, and those freshmen who have had some prior
military training. The company reviews close and extended order drill and cere-
monies, aml specializes in the use of the infantry weapons. The course covers
machine guns, automatic rifle and howitzer company weapons, wanting and patroll-
ing, inusketry and combat principles.
The field artillery battalion is organized into four hatteries, A, B. C, and D. The
instruction is uniform for each battery. Upper classmen are assigned as leaders, the
same as for the infantry. The work is so arranged within each battery that the pro-
gram of instruction is progressive throughout the four years, as follows:
Freshmen: Subjects pertaining to battery equipment and material, and covering
in general the duties of cannoneers.
Sophomores: Subjects pertaining to ballery transport (animal) and covering in
general the duties of drivers. In addition, instruction in communications, fire-control
instruments, and the general duties of members of the battery detail.
Juniors: Artillery technique-gunnery, preparation of fire, conduct of fire, and
the use of the battery detail in the reconnaissance, selection, and occupation of a
position. This year's course will prepare the student to coneluct the fire of a battery
at service practice during the Advanced Camp.
Seniors: The tactical employment of field artillery and training in leadership
The R. O. T. C. takes special pride in the eighty-piece University Band. This
hand is supervised in the Director of Music, and receives exery encouragement from
the R. O. T. C. in the matter of uniforms, in trument arol hours for practice.
Alembers of the R. O. T. C. who are selected la the Director of Mu ie for assign-
ment to the hand are excused from the deniounteel drills in had the infantry and
SCABBARD AND BL\DE.
There is organized at the University of Florida, Company II, Second Regiment,
of the national honorary fraternity of Scabbard and lilade. The membership of this
fraternity is made up of the cadet commissioned oiicers of the R. O. T. C. It renders
valuable services in the encouragement of ellicient cadet leadership.
AWARDS AND PRIZES.
The it. O. T. C. Regiment is recognized as one of the outstanding units in the
entire country. The University of Florkla has been ruled as a distinguished college
by the War Department, for many years. At 1he present time the R. O. T. C. enjoys
the highest rating for eBiciency, in hath inlantry and field artillery, granted by the
The State Board of Edneation of Florida has recognized the e.Ririency and val-
uable training given to the young men of Florida, and recently passed a resolution
praising the high standard of elliciency of the it. O. T. C.
Alany organizations thinghout the State of Florida annually award prizes for
meritorious service and leadership in the various cadet activities. Two of these are
lovely silver trophies presented by the OBicers' Reserve Corps, Department of Florida,
to be competed for annually by the companies of the infantry battalion and the bat-
teries of the artillery battalion.
CADET ACTIVITIES AND COMPETITIONS.
Annually in the spring a series of competitions in the various phases of drill and
leadership are conducted to determine the outstanding individuals asul organize
tions within each buttalion of cadets. These military meets have aroused keen
interest in the competition for leading honors. In 1930-31 it is expected to inaugu-
rate the First Annual l\lilitary Fiekl Meet usal Horse Show. It is further expected
during 1930-31 to start the game of polo on the campus. organizing, as soon as the
mounts and students can be trained, an infantry and an artillery tease with the view
of extending it beyond the campus within the next few wars.
In order to make drill and dress parade a success, students are expected to attend
all formations. It is obvious that when any large number is absent, the depleted
ranks materially interfere with eRicient instruction, and it so happens that those
present are the ones most penalized. Therefore, all absences are required to be made
up before the close of each semester. Should any student be absent six times during
a semester, without approval from proper authority, he will be placed on probation,
and so notified. If he is absent thereafter, he will be reported to the Registrar and
will be notified by him that he has been dropped from the thniversity. Any student
so dropped may bove his case leviewed by the Committee on Military Affairs, but
must make application for such leviest in person within forty-eight hours (not includ-
ing Saturdays, Sundals, and holidays) from Are on which he was dropped.
