years, terminating always with the first term of the fourth or Senior year. No student will be permitted to retain a command who does not maintain a good standing in conduct and scholarship. The instruction and exercises occupy two hours each week, arranged as far as possible so as not to interfere with any other courses of study, to allow the members of other courses to enter this. Students must be careful, however, to ascertain, before entering the military class, that the proper studies and exercises of their chosen courses will not be interfered with. Commissions.— The Governor of the State is accustomed to commission as Captains in the state militia, such students of the Military Class as may have completed the course thoroughly, and have obtained the necessary experience in command, and whom the Faculty of the University may recommend for their high character both as students and as gentlemen. University Uniforms.— Under the authority of the acts of incorporation, the Trustees have prescribed that all the male students, after their first term, shall wear the University uniform. The University cap is to be worn from the first. This uniform consists of a suit of cadet grey mixed cloth, of the same color and quality as that worn at West Point, and manufactured by the same establishment. Students can procure them ready-made on their arrival here. The University cap is of dark blue cloth, and is ornamented in front with the initials 1. I. U., surrounded by a silver wreath. Students will always wear their uniforms on parade, but in their rooms and at recitations may wear other clothing. The University Library contains books on Military Science, Military History and Engineering. Telegraphy.— In connection with the Military Department there is a Telegraph office in the new University Building, with accommodations for learners, and connections with the Mechanical and Military building, the Dormitory and several private houses, making about three miles of telegraph lines. The students form an association or class, and the members join the University main line, using their own instruments in their rooms. The class appoint their own officers, inspectors, etc., and pay a small contribution for maintaining batteries, etc. At present there are twenty-seven instruments on the line.
