A number of officer-candidates in the Army and Navy have arrived home on between-term leaves. They will be home from 3 to 10 days, depending on the arrangements of the particular colleges at which they are being trained, and whether or not they transfer to different schools for the next term. Jack Koerner, in V-12 at Normal, Ill., will be home until July 1.
