Caption
Grim and determined looking, men of the University ROTC start up the long hill at the New York Central station, headed for the University campus. The men returned unannounced yesterday afternoon after a nine-day stay at For custer for indoctrination and induction into the United States Army. This is the first time in the history of the University that students have been ordered from the campus as civilians, and have been returned, under military discipline, to the campus a few days later, equipped with full battle-dress, including steel helmets. While completing their studies on campus, the soldiers will live in barracks, under strict military orders. (Story on page 5.)
