Men Now in Army to Continue College Courses After War
Although the percentage of medical students is not given, figures released by the War Department for publication as of December 20 reveal that 500,000 of approximately 6,750,000 men now in the Army have definite plans to return to full time school or college courses. The Information and Education Division of the Army Service Forces bases the figure on a cross section survey of troops in the United States and overseas. An additional 300,000 are seriously considering resuming their education on a full time basis but are undecided or have conflicting job plans. Still another 1,200,000 men intend to attend part time school or college. Governing factors are the length of the war and prevailing economic conditions. No indication is given as to how anticipated resumption of studies will affect the flow
