Editor's Note:—The "I Want to
Be A Captain Troops" is a national
organization dedicated to securing
captain's commissions for young
men of draft age who have had no
previous experience. Kenneth
Baird, a senior student at the
Northwestern 'University law
school and national commander of
the new organization says: "the
purpose of this organization is to
build a better officers' corps, to
safeguard the lives of young men
by awarding commissions in pro
curement divisions where the
dangers of the battlefield can be
averted. The principles of the or
ganization are not democratic. To
be eligible to memkership, one
must be faithful to the precedent
set for us by the illustrious son of
the Third Term Candidate."
