    A representative of the Willapa Harbor Iron Workers, J. Hinckley, writes to the Board of Regents to support the university's compulsory military training for male students. Hinckley notes that the Willapa Harbor Iron Workers have recently learned that "well meaning but misinformed women clubs" have been trying to abolish this program. He writes that the argument made that such training will make society militaristic is "foolish" as military training has always existed in schools and colleges in the nation and has not made the government militaristic. Rather, Hinckley beliefs that such training protects against national danger and makes students better citizens and more effective in any line of work. He closes with the hope that the Board will not discontinue training. less
