The iDenefibs o?i a Militciry Traininc]. Of what benefitis it to a young man who does not expect to enter miltary life, or make the study of arms a profession, to pass through a course of military training? This is a ques- tion that is often asked, and unless the matter is looked at in all its different phases, one that is hard to answer satisfactorily; yet looking at what is desired in the way of practical results from a college education, no other department has a more general and all pervading influ- ence on the after-life of a college student, than the military. In 1862, the National Government gave large grants of public lands to different state institutions, with various conditions attached, one of which was that a military department be instituted in the college benefited by the appropriation. It was seen that it would be of incalculable benefit to the Government to have a large body of young men sent out yearly from our institutions of learning, well educated and prepared to take the place of leaders among their fellow citizens, who had had a military training and consequently were fitted to take the positions of officers, in case this country should again be obliged to call upon its citizen soldiery During our late war the material for private soldiers was practically inexhaustible, but the scarcity of men fitted to become officers, able to instruct the men under their com- mand, and control them under the strict discipline made necessary by the war, was one of the causes which prolonged the rebellion to such an extent. The officers had to be edu- cated in their duties before they could successfully perform them, and this took a large amount of valuable time, when it could least be spared for such a purpose. The soldiers themselves recognized the lack of proper knowledge among their officers, and consequent- ly failed to feel that reliance in them that soldiers must in order that the best results may be attained by their efforts. If the necessity again arises tor the national Government to call for volunteers for its protection, the supply of men who can command companies, and fill the important places of subordinate officers intelligently and well, will be equal to the demand; this will be due to the present system of military instruction in our colleges. So much for the return which the Government expects to receive for its large outlay. Now of what practical benefit in every-day life as a private citizen is this branch to the student himself? First, the physical training is excellent. In our Agricultural Colleges where so many young men are using every moment that they can spare from their studies, to help support 71
