Abstract

The response of the colleges and universities of the country during the war is well known. The students of these institutions were among the first to respond to the Nation’s call. Those who were present at the Iowa State College when war was declared, know well the depletion in the student ranks at the first call for volunteers. Many of the foresters then in school enlisted. After the first wave of enlistments, many students remained in their classes at the request of the military authorities, -much against their own desires. In some instances fully as great a patriotism was shown by some hasty enlistments. The question which seemed to be uppermost in the mind of every Ames forester was “when and how shall I go.”
